"it is just as likely that they would receive more funding as they have already spent decades in product manufacturing R&D and traffic networking." Can you explain your logic behind this? If anyone can grow it, and the general population/corporations can by it, how does lead to more funding for the drug cartels? The drug cartels are there because there are only so many sources to get those drugs from. They may still get some business, but no where near what they had.

Great, you've got one death compared to...thousands and thousands because of alcohol (won't bother posting statistics since they are everywhere). Throw in the studies that show medicinal benefits, as well as getting rid of all crime around the underground market, not to mention the cost savings from no longer having the War on Drugs (costs money to arrest people, convict them, throw, and keep them in jail). \ The "no marijuana related deaths" means no deaths on overdose. You can easily kill yourself with alcohol poisoning. Not so much with THC. You're logic is just because some people within a larger group of people can't make an argument for their case, that something should be illegal?

Keep in mind that if you no longer want to give Sony money, you'll have to stop buying/using a number of products.

Beyond Playstation, this includes Blu-ray, movies (Sony owns Columbia Tristar Motion Picture Group, Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Classics, Screen Gems, TriStar Pictures, Columbia Pictures Film Production Asia, Columbia Films Producciones Espanolas, Columbia Pictures Producciones Mexico), music (Columbia/Epic Label Group, American Recordings, Columbia Records, Epic Records, Roc Nation, Star Time International, RCA/JIVE Label Group, Arista Records, Battery Records Black Seal, J Records, Jive Records, LaFace Records, Polo Grounds, RCA Records, Verity Gospel Music Group, Volcano Entertainment, Provident Label Group, Beach Street Records, Essential Records, Flicker Records, Reunion Records, Sony Music Commercial Music Group, Legacy Recordings, MASTERWORKS, RCA Red Seal, RCA Victor, Sony Classical, Sony Music Latin, Day 1, Sony Music Latin, Sony Music Nashville, Arista Nashville, BNA Records, Columbia Nashville, RCA Nashville, Music Choice Video and Mustic Network, Sony/ATV Music Publishing).

Sony's Wikipedia page has a pretty comprehensive list of companies and technologies that they've created.

I'm not saying it's impossible, but you have to really think about what you buy. It's pretty easy for me not to buy a PS3 considering I'm an Xbox fanboy, but the movies and music gets a little harder.

With all that said, fuck Sony.

Comment Re:iTunes...feh (Score 1) 390

There's something seriously wrong with your rig if you can't run iTunes without problems using that kind of hardware. Yes, it's called iTunes. iTunes runs like shit on my computer. Dual 2.0GHz with 4GB of RAM. I have about 3000 songs in my library and it takes forever to load up and the performance is crap. And no, it's not my computer because nothing else acts like this.

Hey, good for you for NRTFA!! "on the list of politically toxic subjects that you don't in your right mind run during an election campaign" What "education" is happening among politicians there? They are showing that the only reason they don't push this forward is because PEOPLE DON'T WANT IT; why else would you keep it on the down-low during an election season? Once their positions are secure, then they'll move right back to their old way of thinking. Oh, sorry, you were just trolling? Okay, carry on.

Homer: Not a bear in sight. The Bear Patrol must be working like a charm. Lisa: That's spacious reasoning, Dad. Homer: Thank you, dear. Lisa: By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away. Homer: Oh, how does it work? Lisa: It doesn't work. Homer: Uh-huh. Lisa: It's just a stupid rock. Homer: Uh-huh. Lisa: But I don't see any tigers around, do you? [Homer thinks of this, then pulls out some money] Homer: Lisa, I want to buy your rock. Taking more precautions, good. Security theater, racial profiling, etc, bad.
