I have borrowed books from the library that I went on to buy.
And honestly most people do not take advantage of the library. You wont be losing many sales. If any.
I sort of feel like I should have just called you a dick and been done with it. Any author who would essentially say F the Library is a dick.

A better analogy is leaving your car running while you dash into the store. Which IS against the law in many places. Someone might hijack it and commit a crime. Now, I haven't looked, I don't think you'd be liable for that crime, but if they hit someone else with that car, your insurance is at the least going to drop your ass like the irresponsible assbag that you are.

I am trying to stay. I like my streaming only subscription in spite of the limited selection. If they would license more stuff for that, and honestly push that I'd be willing to eat a price increase. Right now at $8/mo it's a bargain, let loose the first run movies and TV, and they could double my price. That would still beat the hell out of TWC or Uverse. Even figuring in part of my ISP fee (a higher speed connection because I knew I wasn't going to be getting a cable package) it's way better (for me) than cable. Oddly that net connection is thru TWC, their net service is good, their cable service sucks.
I don't want/need nor will I use the DVD plan. waiting on a single disc wtfever on that shit...

"I dunno, ask Obama. He's the one in charge of the DOJ, and the DOJ submitted a court brief telling Gibson they need to offshore their work. "

I asked you below, and I'm going to ask you again. Do you have some proof of this? I honestly want to know. I'm an independent voter and a musician. Can You Prove what you've asserted twice in this thread?

Sorry, no. The DOJ filed court documents telling Gibson they need to offshore their jobs: []
CHRIS DANIEL: Mr. Juszkiewicz, did an agent of the US government suggest to you that your problems would go away if you used Madagascar labor instead of American labor?

HENRY JUSZKIEWICZ: They actually wrote that in a pleading.

CHRIS DANIEL: Excuse me?

HENRY JUSKIEWICZ: They actually wrote that it a pleading.

Can you or anyone show this to me? Some type of evidence this is true? If true that would be scandalous headlines I'd think. I'd spread that news, and I'm Not righ twing .
