Map of what, this proves nothing. Are you aware of how many states there are in America?

A liberal showing ignorance. I tells ya, I'm... not at all surprised...

So your claim is that large swaths of land are more important than major metropolitan populations when it comes to cable TV/Internet usage?.
Are you attempting to challenge me on something I never said?

Bwahahah!

Rookie!

That is excellent and points at the internet provider and landline monopoly, that may also occur, in that they usually sell package deals.....

No, what I said is what I meant.
I just stopped eating corn. There are so many other veggies and fruits I get from a local stand that I don't miss it. Never a diehard corn fan.
Order organic corn from amazon--6 large bags.

<quoted text>Did you see the documentary King Corn? That's where I learned that Monsanto was suing small farmers who dared to plant saved seed, which had been a practice for years. They're putting those small family farms out of business left and right and taking all they have. Even when they use the Monsanto products they can barely make a living.
It also illustrated how most corn grown here isn't edible (for humans). It's grown for feed or high fructose corn syrup. Of course the cattle that only get fed corn end up with holes in their bellies and need antibiotics. It's a miserable cycle, but Monsanto owns that market and they're well protected.
Never seen it but know all about it.
Monsanto is evil. Even other countries that buy from us won't touch the stuff, and certain things we do are banned in other countries. I mean, just be honest and let us choose. The insidiousness of it creeps me out the most.
People are waking up but denial is easy (eat junk, watch TV, text, sleep---what a life).

I'm no psycho about it. I will hit fast food once a month or so. I eat out.
But I buy organic in what I can, mostly dairy: cheese, real butter, milk, eggs.
I eat a lot of protein; dairy, meat, pork chops.
I make spaghetti with processed stuff but I'm cool with it. I try not to eat anything from a box anymore. Luckily I love roast and pork chops and fresh veggies!

I am SO TICKED at Netflix. They decided this week to no longer sell gift certificates! Guess what I get my Mom for Mother's Day??? Now I have to find her another useful gift.

I may end up cancelling Netflix again. They are also now limiting your screens. I guess I'll have to "move" them around as I need them.

Not worth the aggravation.

What screens are you talking about? I get rows and each row scrolls left or right.
Also, just read that they are upping the cost to $8 for new users. Existing users will stay same for 2yrs.

all in all, i am pretty happy with Netflix.

I meant 2 devices. So, for example, at my current price, I can watch it on 2 TVs in my house. If I want to add a 3rd, I have to pay the higher price point.

I will try again from an unregistered name. It contains a hot line phone number. I suspect that the algorithms automatically delete those
