I feel very strongly that a crime has been committed against my family, friends, business associates, and me. Why? Because we spent a great deal of our hard earned money with Google AdWords marketing our websites, which were determined by "Google Specialists" to be "Compliant." All of our AdWords accounts were reviewed, subsequently approved, and remained in "Eligible" and "Approved" status. So we spent $8,000.00 to market those websites.
Google AdWords took $8,000.00 from us in a deceptive and misleading manner, and Google AdSense withheld - - STOLE - - our $29,347.00 in AdSense revenue. That is theft. That is Grand Larceny. That is a Crime.
Is Google beyond the reach of the States? Is Google beyond the reach of the Federal Government? Is Google too big for Government scrutiny and regulation? Is Google immune from the Media? Is Google above the law?
It would certainly require a tremendous and in-depth investigation into Google's books, records, and operating system. Numerous witnesses would have to be questioned. And a nationwide, if not worldwide, call would have to go out to potential victims. So proving a criminal case against Google may be impossible, although it would certainly be a worthy quest. One thing is certain: if the United States Federal Government were to appoint, commission, and deputize me to lead the investigation I would certainly know all of the questions to ask.
We live in a Capitalist society with Free and Open Markets wherein the Free Enterprise system thrives. We also live in a technological age wherein computers and the internet are a daily part of people's lives. A person can go into business for his or her self by building and publishing a website. And they can put whatever content they want on that website in a legally protected 1st Amendment Right to promote and/or sell their own ideas, philosophies, opinions, products, and/or services. We enjoy an array of Constitutional and Legally Protected Rights, Privileges, and Benefits that assist in the development of new businesses. Short of any blatant and/or criminal violations being evident through one's application and use of Google's AdWords and AdSense Programs Google has a responsibility to allow individuals who are exercising their God-given intellect, creativity, perspective, passion, energy, efforts, time, money, resources, and 1st Amendment Rights the opportunity to continue uninterrupted to work the free enterprise system and pursue their Dream.
Google operates as a Massive Publishing Source and Public Media Outlet. For all practical purposes they are, The Press. As such they should not be permitted to obstruct the 1st Amendment Rights of any United States Citizen especially as such pertains to the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, and infringing upon the freedom of the press. They should be required by Federal Law to uphold the 1st Amendment Rights of the United States Constitution and the Citizens Rights to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression, and Freedom of The Press. Are the following decrees "powerful and meaningful proclamations" that deserve to be "upheld and preserved," or are they just meaningless blurbs:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
"Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference, and impart information and ideas through any media regardless of frontiers."
The United States Constitution
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
I developed a network of legitimate websites that grew over time to the point of returning to my business associates and me substantial earnings. This was a direct result of me exercising my God-given intellect, creativity, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, passion, time, energy, effort, and money researching and coordinating a specific recipe for the success we were having.
