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.

Let's see. $65 million for two memoirs. Now, a "high 8-figure deal" with Netflix.
"Though I do think, at a certain point you've made enough money." B. Obama.
Now we know that "enough money" is north of low 9 figures. Good to know.
I don't think we'll boycott Netflix. The wife likes it and I generally find it to be an excellent remedy for insomnia. To be fair, a tiny percentage of it is good.
You can still watch Netflix and not watch 0bama's bullshit productions, and Netflix knows what everyone watches. It would be a hoot if it turned into a disaster for Netflix, OTOH they probably will have an excuse to raise our rates now, with the wealth transfer to the Big Zero.
We have been watching stuff on Amazon Prime, and there is always Roku and Hulu.
They just had a rate increase, perhaps that was already in the works for these two money grubbing ............Can't say what I really think of them.
Dumped Netflix and Hulu, only have Amazon prime now. The FAANG group is in bear trouble...they can join Starbucks.
I really don't think you have anything to worry about. It's not as those two have actually ever worked.
Is this how the Iranian payoff is being laundered? Somehow they had to pay him something for his illegally transferring the $150 billion to them.
Darn! We already boycotted NetFlix because of Rice and Obama and the price increase to support them in the style to which they wished to become accustomed. Fortunately there are alternatives, although some are as lefty biased as NetFlix. How can we join the new boycott?
Well, that's for everyone outside the Beltway. The Obamas and the Clintons (and most of our political 'elite') are 'special' and don't have to obey the rules they want to inflict on us.

I've never watched anything on Netflix. Not even once.
Their latest move ensures I never will.
Amazon demonetizes conservative website (us)
For as long as I can remember, Legal Insurrection has participated in Amazon Associates, a way for websites to earn fees when readers shop at Amazon.com via links from our website.
It was an important source of revenue to us, and paid for some of the operating expenses readers never see.
On Saturday morning, April 28, 2018, I woke up to an email in my inbox from Amazon Associates telling me our participation in the program was terminated, our account closed, that the decision was final and there was no appeal. On top of that, Amazon was holding back any accumulated money it owed us.
There was no prior indication of a problem, or chance to cure. It’s always been our intent to comply with the program requirements. I detail what happened, including all the email communications, below.
