While our tech giants might stonewall the U.S. government in its efforts to keep tabs on its citizens, it violates the privacy of those very citizens every day for profit, and no one can stop them.

As we think about a new idea we shouldn't dismiss existing markets. Often the biggest opportunities are right in front of our face -- whether it is developing a new retail concept or bringing clean water each day to the 2 billion that don't have it.

U.S. Marshals and Their "Dirtbox" Declare the 4th Amendment Dead

Using "Dirtboxes" that act like fake cellphone towers, the Marshals are flying planes around areas that cover "most of the US population." These boxes trick our phones into reporting in - essentially telling the box who we are and where we are. And they've been doing this since 2007. Whoa.

The word conference used to be something that only business magnates used to use, people with high rankings in the business scene. Nowadays, anyone can create a quick conference call with anyone they like; their business partner, their associates, or just a newcomer who needs to be told what to do.

Indeed, 2.5 million children under five are living in the hardest-hit areas across the region, and 75 percent of all children infected in the current epidemic have died.

A few days ago, Google announced that it will donate $2 for every $1 people donate to nonprofits such as Médecins Sans Frontières and Save the Children in the fight against Ebola. As well-intentioned as this campaign might be, short-lived charity donations are not what is necessary to successfully eradicate the Ebola virus.

More Lies From ALEC About Climate Change

Elliott Negin

If ALEC were an honest broker, it would recommend market-based solutions, like the Republican-inspired, acid rain cap-and-trade program championed by President George H.W. Bush. But that's not likely going to happen, because doing so would alienate its fossil fuel industry and trade association members.
