 He doesn't say one leads to the other. You are correct that he considers them both to be sin but then so is everything else on the list. Has anyone read the actual article? As far as Phil is concerned, he was literally born again. Old Phil—the guy with the booze and the pills—died a long time ago, and New Phil sees no need to apologize for him: “We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news...
 I understand your rationals but the point is that attaching a bunch of labels still makes it wrong. If the public elects you when they are misinformed, disconnected from reality and lacking in understanding, then right or wrong, they want you to act on what they voted. It is not appropriate to get into office or use public funds while in office to work against public interest declaring that said interest is labeled misinformed, etc. All the actinos here are justified by...
 The government is spendingt money fighting the generation population's viewpoint on a certain matter. You said the government spending money against those they are supposed to help is fine because it is "misinformation." Being a skeptic isn't misinformation. It means they don't buy the government views. This isn't like prosecuting a crime or preventing a health hazzard. The government should not be preventing common folk from expressing their viewpoints by taking their...
 Yes because if it isn't want the government wants, then clearly it is misinformation by default.
 Perhaps they sound more like each other but the pool is bigger and there are now four or five performers that fill each of the archetypes of "performer" that would have been filled in the prior generations. As an analogy I'll use fast food which I'm sure most people would never consider high culture. In the 80's McDonald's sold the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder and regular burgers. Each restaurant had their variations of that. However now you many different types of smaller...
 Don't be such an old man (and I say this as a 43 year old man who was certainly around in the 80's.) Every era has some innovative music and then it has a bunch of copycats. Look how many completely forgettable hair bands came from that era and have promptly been forgotten. I'd love an Oingo Bongo/Talking Heads reunion tour as much as the next guy but it isn't going to happen and there is plenty of new and interesting stuff now as well.  It is easier than ever to find...
I bought the album this morning. It's pure bedroom music and not to be crude but I'm not into deep philosophy while executing the outcomes from said bedroom music in said bedroom.   A lot of the tunes are nice-midtempo numbers. They are funky as hell. Plus Beyonce cooing in your ear makes it pretty easy to get ready for round 2,3,4.

 MVNO's are not being subsidized. They sub-lease the lines and still make money even at the much lower rates.  The reality is that phones like the Nokia 520 are being offered for about $80 total. They certainly are not in the same league as the iPhone but they can call, text, allow use of several smartphone apps and can act as a very nice wi-fi hotspot for the iPad. It isn't as easy a transition but the nearly 700% savings probably will soften the blow.
Others have mentioned T-mobile and it is clear they are doing some serious damage out there with the Uncarrier initiative.   Smartphones are pretty near saturation levels. Part of the reason things need to change is that even if someone has a subsidy line available for a new phone when discussing kids and phones, they will often take it for themselves or leave it unused while letting the child use an older phone because kids are a bit theft and drop prone. My children...
