While I don't use ANY of Google's services, how is following tax laws avoiding paying taxes ? I mean when you do your taxes, don't you take all exemptions allowed by law, or do you say "Here's an extra $2,000, I don't want my 401K contributions or Heath insurance premiums to be paid by pretax income" ?

Yes, I understand that the Feds have black boxes at all ISPs. I understand that all your emails are scanned by the Feds, and if any keywords show up, they are flagged and reviewed by a real person. (Try mentioning the US's leader and then mention that a movie was 'da bomb', your email will get flagged. Try mentioning those two in a different way and you'll see a Bubba's Plumbing van parked on your street, or worse.)
