    Looks like Hasbro wants in on that sweet, sweet Lego movie money. It'll be interesting to see what they would do with an animated studio.

    "There will always be strife in the middle East-- go back 5000 years and its always been there"

    You could say the same about Europe though. Look at Ukraine

    Turns out Austrailia's PM had the worst hotel room at the G20 Summit. I guess since he was probably the only one there without crippling jet-lag?

    Nope we're one of the last few states without income taxes. Hopefully it will stay that way

    I thought it was a tax on the business that was directly passed on to the customers. I'm no expert on it but that was my understanding.

    What is it in New York? We pay 8.125%

    "How about we do a three strikes rule on the banks - or total fines exceeding xxxxx and then you are automatically subject to breakup and shareholders get left holding the bag."

    I wouldn't be comfortable with the government being able to disassemble companies that easily. Perhaps after reaching a certain threshold, individuals get fined. If it's an accounting "error", the CFO is fined, and so on.

  • Disney to unleash Toy Story 4 in 2017 [View news story]
    I thought they ended the story very well in the third one, which makes me very nervous about a fourth movie. When you end a movie and tie every loose end like they did, it makes another installment fell like shoehorning in another product for quick cash.

    But it's Disney, so I should feel better.

    Remember this is just one election. Hardly enough to call a turning point. There's a lot that has to happen, namely Republicans need to start being conservatives.

    "Because the poor and minorities have figured out that the right-wing is overwhelmingly white... "

    ...and why, pray tell, would "white" mean anything?

    When I see banks constantly getting probed, or setting aside funds to pay for fines I'm reminded of chapter 5 in the fantastic book by Don Keough called "The Ten Commandments for Business Failure". The chapter, "Play it Close to the Foul Line" explains how dangerous and reckless it is to push the boundaries of the law, and of ethics in general. A wonderful, wonderful read I highly recommend.
