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 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.

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

It took, Pellen, and I replied to Pink Lady's post for posterity.

<quoted text>We're pretty much the same in that we do our best with it but we still eat out, etc. I buy organic meat, dairy, eggs and as much I can with fruits and vegetables. I try to remember Environmental Working Group's guidelines for which of those have the highest pesticide load and go from there.
After I watched that documentary I spoke to someone I know in another state who has experience with farming. Specifically I asked why anyone would want to put Roundup into our food system via these Monsanto seeds. He got very defensive and said they were perfectly safe and I should stop worrying about it. That's the last time I talked to him about anything of substance.

The defensiveness tells you all you need to know.
It's frightening how people want to remain in the dark. We know anything our gov't touches is evil...why do they insist on messing with products that have been working fine for centuries?? It's infuriating!

That is a very broad statement.

Is it hyperbole or do you truly believe that, even limited to the agribusiness/ food safety context?

<quoted text>Speaking for myself I'll say that I wouldn't generalize to that degree, but I did get very upset at the protections put in place for Monsanto as well as it's close ties to the federal government. If I've read correctly, some of that has been undone so there's hope, but their hold on agribusiness is already well established. Some things have gotten better but a lot still needs to change.
I appreciate your response but Cheluzal was the one who wrote that and it is her response I am seeking

And stated by a broad!

Anyway, she's right. Name one government program that works

Medicare/medicaid: wrought with fraud and waste

Which leads to Bammycare, meant to insure 50 million people. Well... another 47 million and they'll be close!

EPA? Most inefficient agency ever

FDA? High fructose corn syrup, high sodium, and yellow #5 are in EVERYTHING we buy at the supermarket. Meanwhile, ADD, ADHD, autism, and obesity are at an all time high. Coincidence?

Now we put our full trust in the government to feed our children in school... and teach them

Does the government work for us or do we work for them?

Sometimes, I think too many people forget why America was founded in the first place

Let's just say I believe big fashions of gov't have their own agenda, and doing right by little ole' me isn't a factor.
If you were to prove to me they had a cure for cancer bbut sat on it because treating it was more profitable than curing it, I would not be shocked or bat an eyelid.
It's all about money and greed and you don't make it high up in gov't without caring about money.
