Francis is a douchebag, anyway...didn't he get tossed in jail a while back?

These guys are whining because the 'net provides free access to the things that they sell and got filthy rich from. Why not bank your millions and call it good?

Innovate or die, dumbasses!

I just thought about cigarettes. What if people start quitting or cutting back because of the economy. What are the states going to do w/out all that tax money?
And, that will increase food prices and cause a nation full of bitchy cig quitters. Oh god, we're all doomed!

I guess they will be scaling back on the classy sets used during filming, and the costume budgets will be reduced (shoeless!).

That it, I was waiting for a movie studio, amusement park or casino but I think this makes me want to take the streets and protest against this.

This is just sick...if the porn stars go to congress begging for a bailout then the pharmaceutical industry should join in.

I have worked in the pharma industry for several years and we are getting hit with massive layoffs (various reasons but patent expiration is the main one and healthcare reform).

Either way, come one congress, what about pharma!?!?! When will this nonsense stop....!
