I mean I already stated that I haven’t looked into the business dealings of Walgreens and cvs

So it makes sense now
Yeah when you think about it, it does make sense huh?


Alot of people don't know to be honest.

these cable companies be doin some unethical a*s sh*t. Idk how they do it and get away with it, they be increasing your bill every month. Adding new sh*t and new fees, little by little that sh*t goes up and up if you let it slide it'll go to the thousands

Basically.. cable companies are acknowledging they have and will lose the cable war, and focusing on winning the broadband price battle.. you want to leave? Well since you’re going to be streaming take this 90$ a month HIgh Speed. The data caps will likely get lower and to get unlimited they’ll tax 30 to 40 on top of the regular internet charge.
I’m paying 90 now and looking at a buffering 52’ as I type this bc I can’t watch the finals. fu*k you spectrum.

Make your own internet service. It's not that hard to do at all
Can't even begin to think how to do this. How does it work?

I do have my limits, Genie energy is an Israeli oil and gas company i really liked and could have bought at $8 a share but morally i hate what they do to Palestine so i chose not to and now itís currently 10% since then

fu*king morals
Right call fam, they need to be held accountable for their actions. Peace is not in their current interests contrary to what any Pro Israeli will claim right now.

this is true even for internet if you're a cord cutter. I had gigabit for $50 and it went up to $80. they told me even the new customer rate for 300 mbps wouldn't get me there. we need more competition. fiber please come through and crush the buildings
Gigibit is at&t right?

If so, from my days working with this, it should be fiber.

True fiber, to the crib, not just the node.

With that said I just canceled my fios tv, but my Internet bill is like $70.

Granted, it's fiber and my speeds are 100 up and down ( speed test shows I'm getting that and more on most test.

But Spectrum does not do contracts, and while the upload speed is slower, I'm going to check to see if my bill would be lower.

I'm hoping I can leverage that against what I'm paying with fios.

I barely even watch cable, I mainly pay for it because my kids watch it, but other than that they could keep it. $40 isn't really that expensive though for a huge stack of channels, not a big deal in my opinion.

nah I have RCN here, but it's over bullsh*t coax I think so it's asymmetric - my upload speeds are nowhere near that.

CVS I down 50% since its all time high of 108 in 2016 around the time they bought Aetna healthcare and now they announced this



I started buying shares
I work for CVS I bought 30 stocks at half price of what they charge you guys on the market, bro itís definitely the stock to buy. Theyíre down now because of buying out Aetna and being close to bankruptcy but once they go up itís gonna be a hit

A la carte cable is the answer but they refuse to do it. Id pay for cable again if I didn't have to pay for 250 channels just to get the 10 I watch. They always claim they cant because that's how they pay for channels no one really watches like OLN and some of those hunting channels. When in reality just make those people pay more for thpse channels if they want them

idk. im paying 300mbs without a datacap on comcast for 96 a month.
and you probably had that grandfather plan for several years. hold on to what you have tho, no hate here.

but data caps are inevitable with ISPs

If you accept a 40 dollar increase you a damn fool. Nobody needs a house phone anymore. Get you some good internet and keep it moving

Yea i called today and talked to a cool person and found out that they wasn't fu*kin with me cuz i had an old a*s grandfathered Time Warner plan that in retrospect sucked. I moved over to a spectrum plan and she said in 90 days I'll be eligible for discounts so we'll see

Im pretty sure you heard this before, but the best investments to make would be on the Seven Deadly Sins: Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, and Wrath.


Too many FAANG stocks in there. fu*k that.
