S Vulpy writes: It seems that Warner Bros extorted $120 million in subsidies from the government of New Zealand to keep Hobbit production in New Zealand. Plus 3-strikes laws, plus illegal spying on Kim Dotcom, plus support for the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (SOPA on steroids), plus changed its labor laws. Naturally, WB is now back for more. The 'Kill the Hobbit to Save Regular Earth' Initiative has now launched a contest for drawings or other artistic representations of this horrible story.
What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out,
which is the exact opposite.
