We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It is not a coincidence that "Thousands of unaccompanied minors crossing the border". They didn't all just decide one day to head North. This is ochestrated by a coalition of American activists and South American activists. The clear intent is to overwhelm the borders and "invade" the country. The prize is an anchor child who can bring in the rest of the extended family and reap the reward of tens of thousands of dollars in benefits to each and every illegal alien with or without amnesty. Currently illegal immigration costs about $330 billion in federal funds while the states may well incur a similar cost as well. What will doubling or tripling of the illegals mean to the average American? You have to wonder why then our politicians are in favor of some version of amnesty (which of course will NOT be called amnesty).
Why oh why would anyone care to try to force Netflix to continue to use the same business model as the major networks? Why would they do that? Is it because "binge watching" and Netflix itself is the nose under the camel's tent--the beginning of the end for network control of our minds, what we watch, how we entertain ourselves and of course concomitantly how we purchase--staying on cable tv is the continual feeding of old addictions. The ability to break away from cable tv goes along with the ability to break away from the three major news filters (CBS, NBC, PBS). So perhaps it's not just the well-being of Netflix that worries these critics--perhaps, they too are just plants trying to do their master's bidding--get the crowd to do what they are told to do. I love binge watching--they don't ask for our opinion do they? They just want you to know it's a bad business plan--sheesh!
