John is right about not wanting to buy without a test drive though. I used to go the movies frequently now it has been at least a year and will be a lot longer until I see another one, it is just too expensive. I can wait but blocking Netflix and Redbox is bad marketing.
Increase by two months DVD release and that extends pay per view revenue but once DVD's are released it should be released wide to spur sales. Pay per view options during this period should be discounted to 1.99 and people would pay for convience. Netflix and Redbox should be included even though it costs less because the costs while less do not overcome impulse convience factor of reduced pay per view costs. 3 months later streaming should be available for 90 days then go dark for 6 months before returning.
These policies would spur sales and an increased intrest in thier products but then again the Studios do not seem to care about thier customers or thier profits.

When 3D becomes free of encumbrences and actually lets you change your point of view by what angle you choose to see it from then 3D will be worth doing but until that is possible it is just a huge waste of money.

The real truth is that most water wells are contaminated not because of drilling but because the aquifer is located next to a hydrocarbon deposit. These hydrocarbons are easily absorbed into the water. Removal of the hydrocarbons will actually lessen, not increase the chances of water contamination by removing the hydrocarbons.
It should also be noted that fracking is only used on deep deposits, usually thousands of feet away from the water.

Universities with thier Speech Codes, P.C., and all the other ways language has been distorted have brought George Orwells warnings to life in frightening fashion. We are living in the age of Big Brother and Newspeak. The MSM is the Bureau of Truth and it looks as if Holders Justice Dept. is trying to become the Thought Police.
Orwell had warned of Governemnt that was allowed to control every aspect of our lives and Josh Whedon explored what it would be like for Free men who whould not give up thier Freedom to live in such a system. I believe it was "River" in "Serenity" who said it best, "Some people just like to meddle."

It seems to be two sides of the same coin, but motivations matter. Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reasons? Or is it better to do the wrong thing for the right reasons? Niether is preferable but sometimes life can be complicated.

I like Juan because he is honest about his opinions and supports them with facts. Liberalism and Conservatism are just political philosophies and niether should be considered as necessarily evil. However the current P.C. Speech or as Geroge Orwell stated Newspeak is designed to limit discourse and remove from the lexicon the ability to express any thought not considered proper by whatever power wants it that way and that is in direct contradiction with Classical Liberalism.
