"Where did you anarchists get the idea from that doing things for money purifies you of all evil and that the need to make money from selling goods and services keeps you honest due to the fear that people might stop trading with you if you don't behave?"
Who said anything about being an anarchists? Just slap a label on someone huh? I suggested keeping the Government as small "as possible", and that makes me an anarchist?
"Surely to goodness experience itself should have taught you otherwise by now."
Your right, it has. 20 Trillion in debt, corruption on a scale rarely seen in history, the middle class being destroyed while the rich use their money to buy politicians. A health care system that is wrecked. Social Security is wrecked. Jobs are improving, but were coming out of a wrecked economy (I do partially blame the Gov for this). We have the largest prison population - wrecked. We have a military style police system - wrecked. How is a big and over-bloated government working for us right now? I would argue not so well.
"The public overwhelmingly supports net neutrality, and attempts to undermine it will lead the internet to speak up again."
The problem is that the public in general is going to be o.k. with the current zero-rating schemes, because there is instant gratification. John Doe isn't worried about the next internet startup that won't happen because it can't afford the zero-rating tax, but he is happy that he isn't going over on his 5 gig data plan because video streams don't count against it.
Google initially argued that technically they were abiding by their privacy agreement, they didn't show ads within the Google Apps for Education apps.
Apparently in response to the EFF complaint they have stopped collecting data on student accounts. So while Mr. Hood may be able to complain about the past, it isn't ongoing. Other than some sort of monetary fine, there isn't anything for the courts to do.
You don't need GPS to late someone's mobile phone to an already accurate degree. Cell towers can estimate the distance to the phone, then you can triangulate actual position from three towers or more. Not quite as accurate as GPS, but good enough for most needs. That's why the only way not to be located is to completely turn it off.
Seeing Trump's definition of a "blind trust", I think it's obvious he has trouble with the English language. Case in point here: "draining the swamp".
Hint: this is not done by adding alligators and industrial waste in the water.
