This is an issue that cannot be ignored either. It's complicated problem with no easy solution.

There is also clear cases where some of these tech companies need heavy regulation for the services they are providing, specifically registrars. Registrars are accredited by ICANN and there is limited number of them, there is no amount of money in the world that can fix that issue.
And this proves that said companies are monopolies....how?

I find it amusing that Verizon always manages to pass under the right’s radar....

Right at the same time the Federal Government "task force" is now - for the first time - suggesting that ALL US ADULTS get screened for illicit drugs!

Yes....not a rumor. True.

Hmmmmm.....makes one wonder about the "freedoms" that the Right constantly claims they favor.

"The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has determined, for the first time, that there is enough evidence to state with “moderate certainty” that screening adults for illicit substance use is overall beneficial."

Beneficial to whom?

Oh man, I didn't realize you were an Alex Jones type poster.

But hey, do you have any more things that Trump hasn't done that you want to complain about him maybe doing in the future?
