You are all being taken for a ride

No, as I said, my record on attacking fat, stupid monopolies is fairly
strong. Go visit my web page and read some of my work if you have any
doubts. I've worked for these guys and I know what the Bell companies look
like from the inside, at the highest levels. They're doomed if you would
only stop propping them up.
My *personal* objective is to identify and expose pompous socialists
wherever they rear their ugly heads. We need to eliminate regulation and
government interference in the telecom insdustry, not extend it into the
indefinite future or let it leak back into the PC industry.
Think about what is going on here. Do you really think Ralph Nader gives a
squat about your ISDN rates? What do you suppose his real long term
objectives might be? For chrissake, if there are any people with brains on
this list, start thinking two moves ahead. And if you are from Intel, you
should be ashamed of yourself. Just wait until Nader starts agitating to
hold hearings to discover the "correct" profit margin for a Pentium
processor. After all, it's those "greedy computer monopolists" that are
keeping this critical democratic technology out of the hands of the
Look, there is no doubt that the LEC's are behaving stupidly when it comes
to ISDN rates. That's because the ARE stupid - stupid like a fox. They
could easily maximize their profits while retarding competitive entry by
lowering prices (as well as convince the Naderite pests to go away and
bother someone else) but they don't want to. These monopolists are
determined to focus their business around regulatory machinations, the only
game where they have the upper hand against entrepreneurs, and they are
more than happy to engage in the "process" with you or anyone else. Why do
you want to play into their hands by keeping the game going? "Oh, br'er
fox, please don't throw me into the briar patch." Fools! Who do you think
wins if ISDN prices are set by regulators?
Let's shut this racket down NOW. If that means putting up with high ISDN
rates for a while, fine, it's a worthwhile tradeoff. "Internet radio" and
all of these wonderful new services we never dreamed of, that somehow we
can't live without, can wait. (If you want to listen to the radio you can
do this for free from a device you can buy for $10.)
The very idea of holding government hearings to set prices, calling on
"experts" and "consumer advocates" to testify what is a "just and
reasonable" charge, is an abomination. THIS is what Nader and his minions
are protecting, not you.
