    The lulu's jump on this populist nonsense, eschewing data, then wonder why they don't ever make any money. Then, they just get angrier.

    It just sounds catchier than communist.org, but aside from that, not much difference.

    We better ignore the know-it-all.

     

    It might get upset and cry.

     

    I guess it could sue God for tear ducts. Maybe return them at customer service and scream at one of the clerks.

    I am surprised that Time Warner Cable is not on the list - they are like Comcast except they do not offer ESPN3 or NFL Network.
