Why can't anybody just make a moderately successful product any more without having to "change the industry" with their "new paradigm"?
Because unless it's an immanent-threattoyourlife-OMFG-terroristattack or an industry-changing ultra-mega-blockbuster-paradigmshifting-neweconomycreating-widget, it's not sensational enough to make it into the newstainmentblogosphere.

Competitive mechanisms favor the group that cuts costs, reduces quality and undercuts the higher quality competitors.
If by "Competitive mechanisms" you mean "consumers" then you are sometimes correct. What opposite troll here doesn't realize is that there are two dimensions to a free market, the suppliers AND consumers.

You mean like the one who signed this into law? Like the one who promised to close Gitmo? Like the one who based his entire political campeign on peace? Like the one who promised Federal resources wouldn't be spent on prosecuting individuals who abide by state laws? I'm so sick of this "the democrats are the lesser of two evils" nonsense.
