Of course... the only correct answer to a LEO asking to search your belongings is "if you have a warrant". I understand why he didn't refuse though, it's inconceivable to most people that the DEA can just seize property like they did.
Why would you make data caps illegal? Why not let different businesses offer different plans to match up with different customer profiles? Those who are OK with data caps can purchase plans with them, those who do not can purchase uncapped plans.
There's no incentive to clean this up (pun intended) because in gov't there's ultimately no cost for being wasteful; it's not like the EPA or any gov't agency will have his/her budget reduced because of this or any wasteful spending.
Precisely; in which case it would seem to make more sense for NN supporters to put their energies behind the removal of gov't monopoly support which would be more likely to kill two birds as opposed to fight for NN which will likely have unintended consequences.
have already found to to be immoral and we have made laws against them.
I'll admit my use of the word "rape" was hyperbole, but certainly taxation and asset forfeiture are easy and clear examples of theft, and, as we've found out from Dr. Jonathan Gruber (which many had warned prior), ObamaCare was fraudulently sold to the American people. If we have laws against theft and fraud how are the prisons not full of politicians?
Morals are subjective and mine are different than yours. The debate over morals will not be ended here, however even if you use the rules we currently have as a basis for morality we suffer from serious cognitive dissonance -- theft is wrong at the individual level, for example, but not at the governmental level.
if individual rights are placed above the good of society as a whole But society is nothing but a collection of individuals; it isn't a thing that can benefit. Which means we're back to the beginning in that what you're really arguing is that it's OK to violate the rights of a smaller quantity of people so long as a larger quantity of people benefit from said violation.
You do not have the right to defame another person
Many laws exist which haven't been Constitutionally challenged. I believe defamation laws are one of them. Your reputation is what others think of you. Since you don't have a right to the thoughts of others or to force others to think a certain way about you, you don't have the right to tell someone how to speak of you. Therefore defamation laws clearly violate the right to free speech.
Those same financial restrictions applied before the announcement as well. If I'm using a service which isn't whitelisted I can still continue to use said service with no change in operation. This decision by T-Mobile changes nothing for me since T-Mobile isn't changing how they treat the traffic, only how they bill for it.
The NFL is a business striking a deal with another business for special treatment. That the NFL receives other special treatment is not relevant to the NFL deciding what beverage to carry.
But for sake of argument, let's consider Walmart. If Walmart decided to give premium placement in their stores to a particular cereal or even offer this cereal for free, would/should that be legal? If not, why not? If so, how is that agreement fundamentally different from T-Mobile's?
