Why did they suppress the study? i can only think of one answer.
Society for Consumer Research (GfK): You want answers?
Movie Industry: We think We're entitled.
Society for Consumer Research (GfK): You want answers?!
Movie Industry: We want the truth!
Society for Consumer Research (GfK): You can't handle the truth!
Society for Consumer Research (GfK): People, we live in a world that has the internet and the internet needs to be guarded by men with no scrupouls. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Mister Movie Mogul, We have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for the loss of a few dollars and curse the Pirates; you have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what we know: that the Pirates death, while tragic, probably saved money and that our existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, makes you money.
You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties you want us in the courts, you need us in every court. We use words like steal, cheat, pirate. We use then as the backbone of a lie trying to defend something. You use them as a supeona. We have neither the time nor the inclination to explain ourselves to a poor people who connect and steal under the blanket of saying they don't have the money, we provide you with a defense and then you question the manner in which we provide it. We would rather you just said "thank you," and spent on your way. Otherwise, we suggest that you pick up a computer and stand a gaurd. Either way, we don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to unless its more money.
Movie Industry: Did you order the study and suppress it?
Society for Consumer Research (GfK): We did the job you had us do.
Movie Industry: Did you order the study and suppress it?!
Society for Consumer Research (GfK): You're God damn right we did!
This is just a sham from the software company trying to blame the government for their bloatware, bad coding, costly upgrades, bad updates, etc... There is no way our intelligent intelligence organizations can and are this stupid and ignorant. Spitting, sputtering, coughing…..Oh wait for a minute I was drinking bad kool-aid again. They spin stuff like a bad out of balance washer.
Wow.Who woulda thunk that one stupid situation turns into a more stupid situation in this country of college educated people holding jobs.It seems just being able to remeber things to pass a test is all we really need to make good thoughtful quick judgements. Oh wait commen sense would have to be taught and tested but since that is something one learns by actually doing instead of having everyone do it for you. And this also proves that sometimes more than 2 heads are better than one. just because one has a head does not mean they have a brain that is used.
They are afraid of what is coming. They are coming up with ways to keep the sheeple in line and this is how it begins as they take more and more ways to take liberty away and say it is for your own protection. It is just another part that can get added onto the patriot act that just got renewed again. Those in power are and will do anything to stay there.
I was driving through Pa from MD on Friday and alsmost got hit head on at intersection while turning right because the four idiots from NY who were going golfing(followed them) turned from the other side in front of me because they were in a hurry. Then another driver from NY gets in front of me and is doing 35 in a 45 because he is watching his GPS more than the road and when we get into the small town we start doing 20 in a 35 and then he stops where it tells you to for the stop light but then pulls up the other road(about 20 feet up, you stopped back at the line so trucks can turn frommthe other road after leaving the dairy farm) and then sits there then turns right on red with 3 signs that say no turn on red and about gets hit. I have seen more and more people reading books, magazines, sudoku, crosswords, DVD's, phones, blackberry/palm, computers, and more while driving. The roads are becoming full of the type of people who think that they can do all of this and drive. We need to have a big wake up call and make it hard to have a DL and to keep a DL. Also if a truck driver needs a special DL how the people driving RV's do not. They are more dangerous behind the wheel than a truck driver. I seen a RV'er with a long trailer take out the gas pumps trying to leave a gas station because he did not know how to turn properly.
