47. I must need a refresher on my programming about how any and all privatization is better
Edited on Wed Aug-04-10 02:02 PM by Hugin
in all ways (efficiency, cost, job creation :puke: ) than any government service could ever be... Yes, I'm weak.

I finished a MORNING LONG call to my local (Hahahaha! Sounded like somewhere in the Sub-Continent I was talking to) phone conglomerate trying desperately to get some sort of service on my rapidly failing phone/network connection. Mind you... I pay a pretty penny of my meager resources for the luxury of information.

Anyway, after an hour on the phone during which (under protest) they made me DO.THEIR.WORK.FOR.THEM. by hooking and unhooking things... Until it was clear I wasn't going away that easily and yes there was probably something wrong with my over 30 years old phone wires. Well, I waited on the phone for another hour while the off-shored underpaid sweatshop customer service slave tried to connect me to someone who actually had some sort of ability to physically come to my residence and FIX.THE.FRICKING.PHONE!

Yet, another, in an ever increasing mountain of Corporate Cluster Fuck Fail!

How is this better than... Say, a socialized system? More efficient? HA!
