“I missed cache, it slows the phone, just like I do on my PC, Im constantly deleting it. So, tell me honestly, is it so hard to share this information, why is it that all US citizen jump in conversations with your tone of superiority? (and start using the term US citizen, America is a whole continent).”

“Are you talking about Google Sync settings, let us see, do I have to sync people details, no I dont (deactivated), do I have to sync gmail, I dont even use that email, (deactivated) just as the rest of the options are deactivated, the option to sync calendar, contacts, google photos (I dont use it), google+ and google+v photos(I have an account but I dont use it), web albums (I dont have any). Can someone else red my whatsapp conversation, certainly, am I afraid (absolutely not). Android Device Manager asks me if I want to show device location on Android Device Manager (also deactivated). Am I missing something? You are the know it all trying to boast for my phone works in a perfect way, I make calls when I need to, the same happens with messages, ocassionally I used it as an mp3 player, and I share things I consider worth to share through many apps..”

“You are completely naive of the technology. Your are conflating the gps location reporting via your data plan with the tower triangulation that your cell phone requires just to operate. It cannot be disabled for your phone to work.”

“You get it. I have been saying this for a long time. Most people lack the sophistication to understand it. They dismiss it as just another Alex Jones paranoid conspiracy theory, completely ignoring that this kind of absolute power has always corrupted anyone who held it.”

John12345678910 on Dec 9, 2013 at 21:01:36

“Alex Jones and the Fox crowd have really done a lot of damage to people being able to understand this, too, I would say, by steering the conversation in such 'any conspiracy will do' directions, making them all seem like one subject. But I really agree with the OP, and your summation also. I stay as far away from the US as I can these years, because it's not going in a good direction.”

“I don't like Alex Jones because he turns anything but mainstream into ridicule.

I don't listen to him, but I wouldn't be surprised if 97% of what he says is nuts. Unfortunately, that 3% of truth gets dismissed with the rest of his garbage.”

“Umm, they violated the Fourth Amendment 1.1 million times.”

Joseph Glackin on Dec 9, 2013 at 22:57:57

“Uhmm, sorry. Cell phones are RADIO broadcasts. Not protected. Hell, land line activity is not protected. Thank all those CONSERVATIVE Courts (Burger, Rehnquist, Roberts) for deciding to abolish the 4th and 5th.
SCOTUS says "dumps" are legal on land lines. SCOTUS says cells aren't covered the same as hard wire.

Why do you think they are called conservatives? They are conserving the power of the ruling elite.

Wake up and smell the bs.”

John12345678910 on Dec 9, 2013 at 20:57:56

“Sure is...
Obama has still allowed the Fortune 500(His jobs council- the off shorers) to receive 90% of SBA loans
and instead of assuring financing for Small business(the recovery engine) he has proposed eliminating the SBA.. rather than fixing it.

Pell grants were not cut, the Pell system went subsidized, by the Fed, the Primary Dealers. Obama allowed the interest rate to jack up so the Primary Dealer could off load the 'bubble' onto secondary lenders. When the Pell fell under Fed support, the allowance for BK was taken and loans are attachable towards SS benefits. All Obama did was to promote 'upper Ed to help off loading loans.. by Primary Dealers-more off shorers.

Primary Education results have always had better results, primarily because aof a lessing in Fed compliance costs and time. I don't see the 60 Billion and 6000 jobs where each Dep Of ED employee has (on average) 10 million dollars of influence.(I recommend you study the results in any business when (on ave. employees have beyond 400K apiece and subsequent efficiency).

Encourage for-profit - Go back to Pell and especially 'online Universities- Goldman Sachs/Obama's best friend.

I've no Idea why some presume to say Obama is not just as complicit, blind faith?”

“This is the fallout of GOP policies

-No Child's Behind left
-Accelerate offshoring
-Cut Pell Grants
-Cut funding to higher education
-Privatize primary education
-Implement programs like "Intelligent Design"
-Encourage for-profit higher education
-Do nothing to alleviate student loan issues
-Eliminate bankruptcy protection from student debt
-Vilify teachers and teachers unions.

What do you expect. The entire system has been dismantled systematically to produce profits for private industry while removing any incentives to excel by students or teachers.”

“No Child Left Behind is Ted Kennedy's work and was passed with bipartisan support. George W. Bush may have been president, but the Democrats in both houses signed on this bill. If this is an example of a failed GOP policy, where is your acknowledgement of Democrat support?”

“Exactly. These folks with the comments about how education has been ignored don't get it. Education has not been ignored, it's been deliberatly undermined to create a nation of unskilled workers, compliant to the fascist government (corporation + government = fascism), and believing they are entitled to NOTHING.

This country was founded FOR THE YOUNG AMERICANS. This country BELONGS to them, and the corporations are stealing it from them, while they sit by, accepting it.

Why did the students rise up in the 60's and demand change? BECAUSE WE KNEW WE COULD, SHOULD AND HAD TO DO IT.”

Academy Award Winner Forest Whitaker Falsely Accused of Shoplifting at NYC Deli.

Whitaker, who was in New York filming a movie, was leaving the Milano Market in Morningside Heights when a worker said he saw him steal an item from the store. The worker stopped Whitaker and publicly searched him inside the store. But the employee's pat down revealed Whitaker hadn't taken anything.

Whitaker's representative said "What is most unfortunate about this situation is the inappropriate way store employees are treating patrons of their establishment. Frisking individuals without proof/evidence is a violation of rights."

Whitaker did not call the authorities at the request of the worker who was in fear of losing his job, though he did ask that the store change how it treats its customers.”
