Can you imagine if Rush Limbaugh said he’d enjoy seeing Obama’s home burn down, that he could call the Black or Muslim Fire Patrol? Sheesh.

Call me naive, but I DON’T “know what [she] mean[s].”
They were claiming Romney thinks it is a good idea to save money by not having enough firefighters.
Oh. Thanks for that interpretation.
Dumber than I would’ve thought. If I’d thought about it.
My Liberalspeak translator microbes are so weakened from such extensive overuse this season that sometimes I don’t even try to figure these things out.
Understandable. One’s microbes can only handle so much toxic bs after all. (Do you happen to know why Farscape DVDs are so expensive? So annoying. Until they come down into the realm of reasonable, I’ll have to just keep reordering the series from Netflix. Harumph.)
“..happen to know why Farscape DVDs are so expensive?”
Don’t buy DVDs, so wouldn’t know. But of course that won’t stop me from making a guess: If The Market is at work, I expect that demand may have something to do with the pricing, what with Farscape being so good and so popular. 😀
I’ve always thought that CDs and, later, DVDs, manufactured for pennies each (yes, I know that’s the least of their costs, but still..!), were exorbitant if they cost more than 99¢. Or maybe 50¢? I was just reading yesterday about how the comic book industry, in the old days of 10-15¢ per issue, was all high volume, low profit per unit. If CDs and DVDs had been priced with high volume in mind, the incentive for piracy would have been enormously reduced. (Witness how successful the iTunes jukebox idea was!) Degree of “black” market is always inversely proportional to the cost & risk factors of the taboo, prohibition, tax, or other restriction. This is your Milton Freidman moment for the day.
Good points, but I do buy DVDs and Farscape is wayyyy out of the norm for similar popularity items. I’m thinking it’s an Australian thing. Most of the DVDs I consider and/or purchase are US or Canada. Farscape was Australian. Maybe I should get over being annoyed and just buy the stupid thing. Or order it again from Netflix, which I’m already paying for LOL.
Australian, ah, right. So it must be the $US-$AU exchange rate?
(See? Being absolutely ignorant, I can make up any bs!)
I still think this is all about PR. She needs to get some soundbites so that people will pay attention. This is how she gets ratings.
Some people want their notoriety, even if they sell their souls to do so.
She is in good company with Al Gore and his “network” of opportunists.
