For some reason these jackoffs just keep coming back to building their monopoly towers, and the government lets them.
Of course, you realize the irony of pointing this out on a story about the government stopping these "jackoffs", right?
But seeing how well that separation of church and state worked, I'd rather not hold my breath.
If it's the former, I'm not aware the Federal Government established a National Religion...
If it's the latter, Jefferson himself allowed that individual states could keep their state-sponsored religions, that the federal government would not create a national religion.
Jefferson's letter is the only source of the phrase "separation of church and state" and as a private letter is not a binding legal document.

I always wondered how "unlimited" used to not even include an asterisk that redefined it wasn't considered false advertising.
Really? You don't understand the difference between 'unlimited' and 'unthrottled'? The unlimited plans we are discussing today have no actual defined data 'limit' you can consume as much data bandwidth as you like, only the first 100-200 or more Gigabytes of data are unthrottled, after you exceed the carrier-defined threshold your data rate slows down, but does not stop - if it stopped, it would be limited.
Think of bandwidth like the 'unlimited' breadsticks at Olive Garden - the first few hundred bread refills are of multiple breadsticks, but then, after say 200 refills, the waiter starts bringing you one breadstick at a time. He never refuses your request for more breadsticks, but they just start coming slower... No reasonable person would say that dropping refills of breadsticks from several per refill to one at a time was a denial of breadsticks, but when it comes to data packets people think "unlimited" = "unthrottled" and "throttled" = "no data".
I moved it to unlimited when it was offered and it worked until Trump won and they figured net neutrality could begin to be ignored.
What the hell does net neutrality have to do with the data limits on cellphone plans?
What the hell does Trump's winning the US Presidential election have to do with cellphone data plans?
What the hell are you talking about?
Me and my wife are out of home all day working, and we reach easily 200GB-300GB per month without doing much besides streaming our favourite series, and the occasional movie - and no 4K videos involved.
If you are consuming 7-10 Gig/day, every day of every month watching your "favorite series, and the occasional movie" on your cell phones you are most definitely NOT an average cellphone user. Myself, I've never streamed a feature-length movie on my cellphone, and I suspect that is true for many/most cellphone users with data plans.
Curious, which cellphone carriers are looking for users that consume 7-10 Gig of data per day?
With the threshold being dropped from 500GB to 200GB, the latest move will affect customers who weren't using enough data to be caught up in the last round.
Wait, by lowering the threshold they'll snare more people? Wow, thanks for pointing that out Captain Obvious!
Was the then -- still quite new -- 1080p HD 2D television simply "good enough" for the average TV viewer?
Short answer - yes.
Longer answer - For "most" people when they first came out, 1080p was simply a bigger picture and they never even choose HD channels when available... I had several relatives that bought rear-projection HD TVs then simply watched standard definition TV on a bigger screen.
Pity "Cash for Clunkers" didn't include CRT-based TVs...
Why Did 3D TVs and Stereoscopic 3D Television Broadcasting Fail?
Because it was expensive...
Because it required goofy glasses...
Because the vast majority of TV watching won't benefit from 3-D imaging...
Because 3-D content was rare...
Because the various formats were incompatible...
Because it was a solution in search of a problem?
This could be solved with very high tax rates on corporate profits, dividends and income from stock sales.
I'm not sure how old you are, but in my half-century plus walking around this country I've come to the conclusion that very few problems are solved through higher taxes, at best they create as many new problems as they intended to solve.
I have a file drawer full of stories about states that implemented "millionaires taxes" to combat some certain problem, only to find the millionaires found a way to avoid the tax, eventually costing the state lost tax revenues, not increasing them. There was a story in the news recently about a state that had to redo their budget to address the loss of a single multi millionaire from the state...
