7. As with so many other things in our country

the solution is as simple as changing American behavior. That should be simple, right? You could try just getting rid of the things that are creating this gap, mainly greed and the ability to engage in dick waving. I don't know if many of you were around back in the fairly early days of cable, but this same issue always came up. Simply put, the cable companies were not going to go out and install a line unless they could get a multi-hundred percent return on their costs. When you live on a road that is miles long, yet has only four farms on it... well, you are just S.O.L. (Shit Outta Luck). So, twenty years later, we finally got satellite. And, at the time, it costs like five times as much to get half the connection, and that connection was shaky at best. Face it, unless you remove the greed and the fact that businesses are engaged in massive dick waving when it comes to the internet, those who are not in the market to start their own server will always be left behind. How about setting a standard when it comes to certain 'necessary' websites so that most computers can actually visit it without crashing because their site requires the fastest, most powerful connection? Or, maybe not make the internet the only way to apply for work when some computers cannot access the sites that offer jobs? Oh sorry... too much to ask.
