I see you dont know ANYTHING about the revolutionary war.

1776 was a bunch of rich people convincing the poor to fight for them. George washington was just pissed his riches were being taxed along with all the other "founding fathers" It was a fantastic job of convincing most oft he citizens to fight for "freedom" that only the richest men enjoyed and they shovelled that " you can be too" BS down their throats to help convince parents to send their kids to die for the rich guys.

Tea partiers don' know anything about american history other than the propaganda crap taught in high-school. It's why you guys are not taken seriously.

The biggest difference, back then the rich guys had the balls to actually be near the front lines and even on them. Today our country is ran by 100% cowards.

In many countries, it is illegal for a company to unfairly exploit its dominance in one market to gain advantage in another market.

But Google aren't doing that.

The argument of these complaining companies boils down to "our business is so crappy and generic that we have no customer loyalty at all, and as such our customers simply click on whatever result comes first when they search". Therefore they argue "we should be first because otherwise it's not faaaaaaaair".

If the only justification for your existence is that hapless customers end up at your website due to an accident of ranking, why should anyone care about your business? Facebook, for most of its history, wasn't crawlable at all - the entire site was behind the login screen. Literally the only search term they showed up for was Facebook. Guess what - it didn't hurt them at all, because their customers wanted to go there.

Then do it cheaper, show up with a private contractor militia, local official wants a kickback? give it to him in 5.56 rounds from your bodyguard named bubba.
Declare you are setting up a private police force to clean up the corruption, horribly gruesome wipe out several of the top dirty cops and the rest will fall in line.

As long as we're going to reinvent the wheel again, we might as well try making it round this time. - Mike Dennison
