Your idea of supporting your argument is agreeing with me and asserting
something surely must happen in the future? :)
I mean my grandma gets her social security check every month, which
means that she can have a place to live and buy food, but I'm one of the

isn't just destitute should be able to get it. It lets people
participate in 21st century society, get jobs and support themselves.
AT&T and TWC, the corporations involved, don't want to compete; they
want to promise as little as possible, take as much as possible, and
capture every regulator their money can buy, and H.129 is supporting
