Stinking liberal dermoRATS hate all businesses anyway. They do not let build towers, put every possible roadblocks on the way of progress and after that complains for "bad" services. If you do not like what you got for communications - move to the metropolitan areas or cut off the service you do not like all together. You want to live in "wilderness" and have the same services as in Brooklyn without paying for it extra money. That is not going to happen I hope. Otherwise all of us would pay a lot for your convenience. They complain about connection with IRAQ??? Virizon fault??? They do not have even brains to understand that Virizon does not operate in Iraq, Iran and China. What kind of morons are they???

If it wasn't for your "rant" I would have to say I pretty much agree with you, but here's the thing: you don't have to be condescending

I do not like these people destroying our lives and country very much, to put it mildly. Another thing. I am not here for popularity contest. I really do not care if people agree with me or not. Actually I am sure that at least 70%( more likely 80%) would strongly disagree, because we live in moronic communist state of assochusetts. I write it in a hope that may be few people will realize who theirs enemies are and who is ruining their lives. And may be they would realize that only businesses keeping them alive. In the communist schools and media here they got opposite ideas.

I also have verizon, I just called them the other day because of the horible static I have on my line. They first told me to hang up and they would perform a test on my line, to call back in 10 minutes, when I called back they told me to go outside and plug my phone into an interface that is outside..problem one in order to plug the phone into the interface I would have to climb up a ladder to do it. ( I do not own a ladder) problem 2 is I just do not feel like doing the phone companies job I pay a lot of money for a phone line and now they want me to fix my phone line. My answer to the phone company is lower my bill and I will do my own phone repair

You do not have a ladder??? Own a home but do not own a ladder??? What are you professor or something? Should not have a telephine as well. It is because of such people like the charges for everything so high. I bet you voted for oBUMa. I hope they will cancel your service all together.

What is the big deal about phone service? Once you make a connection you still can't get anyone. "Push 1 for a list of options that will give you a list of options that will give you a list of possibilities that will make you grind your teeth and then guess what? "Sorry we are closed for the day moron, you need to start calling at 8am in order to go through the head banging maze of choices"

This is not what Alexander Graham Bell had in mind. He wanted us to be able to call someone and talk to them but we have now turned a simple device into a complicated nerve wracking inefficient, ineffective tool of frustration.

Can you imagine the lost productivity all across the globe with millions of people pushing buttons and waiting for another list of choices all day long?
