“If they wanted this phone to sell well, they shouldn't have released it exclusive to AT&T. Many would steer clear of AT&T if it wasn't for the iPhone.

Verizon users would probably have jumped at a new Blackberry since they as of yet have no iPhone access.

AT&T takes a huge hit the day they aren't the sole iPhone provider.”

“$430 a week, ... I make about that as a tech assistant/gopher receiving regular overtime at a recording studio.

“Your unemployment benefits are based on your salary. If you were laid off you'd likely get less than $200 per week. Does it still seem like a good deal to you?”

“John King doesn't challenge anyone. He's pretty much just a journalist, the Brian Williams of CNN. He'll ask questions but he's not gonna grill anyone.”

JePense on Mar 29, 2009 at 18:07:12

“Sorry SemiRock, I think you are confusing "journalist" with "recording device."

Whenever a journalist (there are so few left now) conducts and interview, s/he should have done enough research to peel the onion with good questions, good follow-up questions, and an ernest effort to challenge unsupported declarations.

On the other hand, recording devices just capture everything the interviewee says without question or follow up....”

“Actually, as it is today the profit margins on growing/selling marijuana are HUMONGOUS - like 300-400%.

If marijuana were legal, competition would actually drive the price down a bit since it is so easy to grow. The only thing that may up the price is how much the government wishes to tax it. But if it were legal I think you could get way more pot for the buck.”

EndangeredJackalope on Mar 27, 2009 at 01:13:25

“decriminalization would drive the price down the lowest.

The main immediate benefit I see to legalizing (besides not ruining people's lives w/ prison time), would be having an age limit/ID for it.

Then again though, I would HATE to buy it at a 7-11, ugh.

Hopefully people would just grow their own. The quality would stay high. It would be public enough that parents could talk to irresponsible neighbor parents that allowed kids to "snip" some. Drug entrepreneurs would have to find another product (the addictive physically destructive kind that people can see the distasteful side-effects of)....

Decriminalize it already.”

“I personally think this is BS.

I mean granted I knew who DL Hughley was, it seems as a journalist you should have the integrity to properly site the source you pull your information and video bytes from.”

VSamuels on Mar 5, 2009 at 12:52:12

“Matthews sees the writings on the wall, and I'm doubtful if he was caught unaware of who Hughley was, as Matthews always seems to pride himself on knowing a little about 'everything'. Matthews was probably jealous that he was not in the middle of this moment, and saw Hughley as some upstart who he should not respect as he is not a real and actual journalist.

This was simply Matthews being the insipid snarky and egotistical boob that he is---he was telling Hughley this sort of interview is my domain.”

“Man I hate politics. I mean this whole interview, this whole conversation, has NOTHING to do with fixing America's problems. It's just sore bitter old people bitching about how they lost and how they're mad.

This whole discussion, this whole interview solves nothing, it only divides, and every interview I have seen recently, besides the POTUS, only serves to air grievances.

I just recently got into watching the "pundit circuit" on cnn, msnbc and fox during the election, but I can't stand this anymore. They only show where I've seen the interview actually ask about solutions instead of grievances is Maddow's.”

Boo hoo, people are talking bad about me so I had to back down.

Grow a backbone and serve your country! Obama had faith in you and has been touting you as the man for this job for months!

And because some newspapers and some republicans wanna talk smack you tuck tail and run.

This is why ti's hard to have faith i politics. Politicians are a bunch of yes men and brown nosers. God forbid they look bad, o noes!”

“The government asks for the advice of economic experts, and when they don't hear what they like they chew them out. It's despicable. It's happened here, with Paulson, and back to Peter Schiff when he predicted this collapse back in '06.

I'd love to not support a company. As a matter of fact I don't. At 28 I do not make enough to deposit into a retirement account (i work in TV) so I have no 401k. But many people depend on 401k, mutual funds, etc. to invest for retirement, college for their children, etc.

America needs something more reliable than corporations to invest their futures in.”

“WOW! Is that really how you heard this? This man is/was evasive and and arrogant, and OBVIOUSLY covering up for the money lenders' indiscrepancies and lack of transparence, clarity or truthfulness in their dealings.

That was the WHOLE POINT OF THIS MONEY - to have an accounting of how it was being used. THAT is the lie that was told to the American public anyhow...

Companies who've RUN their businesses into the ground through predatory lending practices and brought the American economy to its kness because of their exponential greed and backroom dealings should NOT be getting extravagant bonuses or golden parachutes.

That Kashkari couldn't or didn't want to answer questions truthfully and coherently is what brought down the ire of the Investigating Committee.”
