A lib from Colorado, rep Polis, is out there now fighting the FTC possible legal action against Google. He claims the online search market is already extremely competitive and the enforcement of more anti-trust would only complicate the situation further. “The FTC should tread carefully when reviewing Google… or any other tech company, given the dynamism of our tech industry and the potential for making things worse through regulation.”
In October of 2010 Google was accused of invading the personal privacy of home computers. Forced to come clean to spying charges, they admitted to invading private residences and ‘mistakenly collecting’ personal information, everything stored on one’s hard drive. Remember the Google no bid government satellite contract? What about their offshore financing to yield the extra low 2.4% tax rates? To whom do they donate so much campaign money?
One month later, December, in accordance with Obama’s wishes, the FTC pulled the switch for an online no tracking privacy system, ‘online privacy bill of rights’. Does the commercial gathering industry have the right to invade your privacy and ‘follow’ you?
Search for directions to a restaurant serving a menu which does not comply with ObamaCare standards then the pop-ups and ads come out of nowhere everywhere. What right do you have to block them? Write a personal gmail about a health problem and pop-ups for physicians/medications appear in YouTubes you watch with your children?
Google’s browser is one of the biggest and it’s online ad business incorporates tracking. Firefox does not. Their no track required the commitment of the advertisers. The tracking has been implemented on other platforms, they used a code that bypassed Safari’s privacy settings.
Let’s get back to rep Polis, about competition and making things worse. We had left Google long before this time but word was out that in January of 2011 that first results of Google queries of ObamaCare linked to the government site. Regardless of what was written after ‘obamacare’, the top result was the same and it was taxpayer funded. When we left they did not rank by hits, the leftist crap was always at the top but they deceive you. If you query on your personal computer they will use your cookies and place you up there but go to another station and you disappear.
We omitted Facebook and Twitter from the Polis quote but they are efficient mail means of updating the lib sector as to new information. Google search is an easy means of getting the people there to start the process. People looking for information concerning any aspect of ObamaCare are forwarded to Obama’s government site and brainwashed. Why would Polis or any of his lib family want the golden goose to end?
