Tilson's got to be kicking himself in the ass for originally getting out of the trade, even though I think he later put the short back on!

NFLX was buying the stock to support the options of management...this is .com all over again.  They wasted cash and profits to funnel to executives.  Heads of these incompetent asses need to roll

Check out the latest from the Capital Research Institue "On Behalf of the 99%":

http://www.capitalresearchinstitute.org

"...the media for the most part is completely in the dark, at best, or complicit, at worst.

The point being, people don’t really know WHAT they want, in terms of reform.  Thats why the ‘Change’ gimmick worked so well for Obama.  Because people KNOW they want change, they just want someone to tell them what will be changed, and why that will be better.  Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan is the exact same.  People aren’t worried about the specifics, they just know they want change.   Well, I am here to help steer the herd a little, as it were.

What is needed is the banning of usury, an end to the Federal Reserve System, and a return to Sound Money, for starters."

hmmm.  Let me suggest that first we need to get REPRESENTATIVES in washington ... not shills.  I suggest the best way to do this is to criminalize bribing of politicians via campaign contributions by organizations THAT CAN'T VOTE.  The other kind of bribery is already illegal.  If you can't vote, you can't bribe!  This is not a violation of the first amendment because (1) organizations aren't people (they can't vote can they?) and (2) they can run any ads they want saying anything they want (without direction from a candidate).

Let's just be a simple fuck about it.

Netflix and hulu have one job. Destroy the old cable tv business model of television where shit was simply broadcast to dumb tvs and radios and replace it with a new business model where shit is broadcast to trackable mac addresses. Because you can't enforce rediculously high priced enterentainment without lots of jail and lawyer and data processing overhead. I mean seriously do you seriously think they can charge 100 120 bucks a month for cable and internet? Hell no they can't. Why do you think they switched to digital tv? To get more hi quality channel transmissions? NO because TV decoder boxes have a mac address and are "SMART".

The hollywood fucktard companies didn't start the cable companies and turn them into massive structure query language fucktard machines so they couldn't play god now did they?

They want to make more money on the new machinery than they made on the older simpler machinery and be more landlordish about it. Problem is they won't.  Hulu is CBS fox news and disney which is wierdly comcast. Netflix is microsoft and all the mysterious fuckers behind them. Blockbuster is dish network which is a bunch of creepy ass jewish cell phone companies. 

You are inside the biggest blackest box of monopolistic lying ass entertainment. It's a bit more complicated than executive profits. It's the power to make or break actors control their behaivor. Make them act out rediculous fucking farces of reality. Claw back payments with drugs. Because nobody will fucking protect you like an addict who gets drugs from you.

It's like that late show guy. The drew carey british guy. He's a fucking drug addict. He had several shows dedicated to making fun of gaddafi complete with fake audience laugh tracks and nothing behind it but celebrating jews.

All these tech companies are not tech companies. They are simply tech companies that are stitched to the entertianment and propaganda industries asshole. And they'll destroy their old companies to drive people to new "distribution" systems in a heart beat. If it means more power more control more ability to flavor the manipulation just so.

while true, there are people that don't want to surf to search and wade through the virus ridden interwebs to find it. There are more people who don't want to bother with it and would rent it for a few bucks than have to waste time trying to find it. It's a convenience cost.. nothing more.. and people pay for convenience all the time.

Those days are long gone. They can track you completely now. No need to fuck with your computer any more.

I mean sure it's not failsafe. I've been on the net where it throught It was someone else. It's a rush but it's also extremely difficult. The reason ad trackers and ad aware are gone is because you've got 6 to 12 ad bots attached to your ass every time you log in the internet. They get you from the second you enter the door and have you tagged till you log out.
