It is my opinion. And law is nothing more than opinion. Once upon a time, "Separate but equal" was a court's opinion, it isn't any longer. Opinions change. Laws change. Ideas change.

Which makes my opinion equal to all others. And you NEVER heard of any law you disagreed with. EVER?

If you're running a service similar to Google, and you can't compete, you need government to help you? Color me unimpressed.

On the other hand, if you HAD said "I run a service that IS better than Google", then you wouldn't likely need government assistance.

And frankly, I don't want Government picking winners and losers in the economy, their track record is pretty grim (See Solyndra)

Monopolies are only maintained for periods of time, and are doomed to fail eventually. Most people don't have the patience to wait it out. I use LINUX as an opportunity that arose at least partially because of the Microsoft Monopoly. Microsoft couldn't kill what it couldn't control.

The People really don't want one either. People don't really want to know what is being done in their name by politicians, or else they would be pissed off. Plausible deniability. It is how many Germans ignored the Nazis.

To know, would require a person of any amount of conscience to act.

Racist Xenophobic conversations would be something I would engage in, not because I was either. It is more interesting to troll the stupid idiots spewing crap, than it is listening to conversations about LeBron or Kardashians.

I could have a shit ton of fun with that.

The CM Micromax Deal was dreadfully short sighted. While they gained Micromax, they pissed off a whole bunch of people. I would be on ColorOS if it weren't for a missing single feature I use regularly, single button screenshot. If they add that, I'll be off CM for good.
