These issues are important but do we really want more regulation on private business?


Do you own a Smart Phone? Own a Car or Truck. Use many of the FREE Google apps. I am not a member of Facebook, Twitter or any other social media yet Goggle and my credit card companies know my every step, even if I "turn off" this and that. Yes privacy needs to be kept out of their hands

What about just after you purchase [within minutes] an item from a store or service a text message comes over your phone asking you to rate the experience? Tracking + Stalking!

Have you noticed that the DO NOT CALL LIST is not being followed?

Look at this! Another door opened:

DOJ Launches Antitrust Probe into Tech Giants


Further, the DOJ stated it will “consider the widespread concerns that consumers, businesses, and entrepreneurs have expressed about search, social media, and some retail services online.” Amazon is one of the world’s largest online retailer, while Facebook has dominated the social media space over for a decade. For years, Google has operated the most popular search engine and dominated online advertising, a duopoly that Amazon is just now gaining a foothold against.

I don't know other than to look at the SEC web site [Edgar] on Facebook stock moving forward as Facebook would have to declare the payment to the US Treasury as it was a significant fine. But can we find the $5 billion credit receipt to the treasury? I don't know.

Securities & Exchange Commission


Federal fines in many other consumer-focused agencies are paid to the U.S. Treasury – where Congress controls spending.

Well all I'm saying is from your opening post, you'd need some verification before gloating that the "Orange man good" or white hats back in charge in Langley.

before gloating


Oh believe me that I am not gloating.

But didn't some guy named Coats just resign as Q predicted. Hmmm
