Re: America Fuck Yeah!

Unfortunately, you're so correct.

"The third largest lobbying increase between the first and second quarter of 2014 was logged by Comcast Corp, which publicly announced plans to merge with Time Warner Cable in February. Comcast spent $4.5 million in the second quarter, a 40 percent hike from first-quarter lobbying expenditures of $3.2 million."

So in the first two quarters of 2014, Comcast has spent almost $8 million on lobbying. When the Comcast/Charter/Time Warner/Spin-Co merger is approved by Washington, it will be largest cable/ISP company in the US, guaranteeing a virtual monopoly.
