A great deal of people I know are in medical fields, banking, teaching etc.. and unions are there to protect them! Inflation is going up dramatically... remember when a chocolate bar was less than 25 cents... but have the average worker's salary increased by 100% to match inflation in the last twenty years? No!! Teachers go on strike every so often (like they should because they work hard) as do other unions. 98% of the world's wealth belong to less than 2% of the world population! I don't think 4 cents more will kill the producers/production companies. Maybe they'll have to tip their caddys on the golf course a bit less.

You guys are idiots. Things cost a lot because we are willing to pay for them. Advertising budgets are decreasing dramatically because of technology and internet. Most of our products are made in China, India, Taiwan for about 20 cents (and less) and then shipped here... heck most adverstising is done on youtube for free now!
And ps. I'm not a writer but I do know for a fact that writers ie. the simpsons, films like Michael Clayton have EVERYTHING to do with the quality of the show/film.
And more importantly... a lot of producers DON'T invest their own money... nor do agents ... but they do make a higher percentage. It's a fair fight... I thought that's what America is about.

So I just heard about the upcoming movie with STEVE CARRELL called Crazy, Stupid, Love, and it looks pretty good! I'm looking forward to seeing it :) One of the movie promos has Airborne Toxic Event's "Changing", which got me so hooked to the band and now absolutely I love them. Check it out:
