Perhaps instead of ranting off anonymously on an Internet forum, you'd be better off growing a pair in real life and "making your own luck" as the saying goes instead of meekly accepting the comfort of your existence. You'll actually find that they are hiring, they're just not advertising. The dream job is always there and always within reach, however you don't get it just by sending off resumes into the ether, you get it through being bloody minded enough to demand it.

If you lose your job because of a photo posted on Facebook, you have an asshole employer who cannot distinguish the difference between your work life and private life, and you probably ought to get a new job anyway - unless the photo is of you doing something illegal, in which case perhaps you shouldn't have done that in the first place. Still finding it hard to have any sympathy here.

Don't tell me that capitalism has failed, when the author has failed to make a point at all. This is Marxist B.S., meant to encourage government ownership of broadband connections so they can spy on us and charge us through the roof.

And if you keep telling yourself that enough times you'll eventually convince yourself its true. Either that or you're a comedic genius and I failed to spot the sarcasm. Regardless, I'm having a good laugh at your post right now over here with my cheap, fast broadband that I get because of the government mandated competition laws that my commie country has enacted.

FFS, if I bought a phone and it didn't work I'd just take the thing back to the shop and get a refund. That way I get my money back so I can buy a different phone as a replacement. With a class-action lawsuit they'll get $5 worth of iTunes vouchers and still have a phone that doesn't work. What planet are these people on?
