Forum Post: Disney will now own Marvel, Star Wars, Avatar and Pixar. If you own a theater in America should that worry you?

The Walt Disney Company To Acquire Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc., After Spinoff Of Certain Businesses, For $52.4 Billion In Stock.

"...The agreement also provides Disney with the opportunity to reunite the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool with the Marvel family under one roof and create richer, more complex worlds of inter-related characters and stories that audiences have shown they love. The addition of Avatar to its family of films also promises expanded opportunities for consumers to watch and experience storytelling within these extraordinary fantasy worlds...."

What do you people think? Will Disney now effectively control all the theaters in the country now?

You should get over the Clintons, if you ever take your head from your ass and want to actually do something besides elect Republicans there are things you can do like join the Justice Democrats that's a great group opposing Trump instead of electing him like you.

People who vote for Greens are the stupidest people on Earth.

So once again - ''Greg Palast on Why Clinton Didn’t Push for Michigan Recount - Part 2 of 2'':

As U know, your politics are way to the right of me and far closer to Repugnants .. than I'll ever be!

just read "bailout" by neil barofsky - really good

[-] 1 points by ImNotMe (1488) 10 months ago

Re. ''Bailout'' .. ''Programs Treasury claimed were designed to spur lending to small businesses essentially were bailouts of the (big) banks, with little of the money flowing to those who the programs were “intended” to help. Neil questions whether such intentions ever actually exists or if they were blatant lies used to get the programs/bailouts approved and the money out the door with as little hassle as possible.

''The book has literally hundreds of citations/sources to support Neil’s arguments to complement his impressive collection of anecdotal evidence from his experiences at SIGTARP, to the point where I think critics would have to be pathological liars/delusional/etc to deny the many points he makes throughout the book. Is the financial system and housing market better off today than it was in, say, 2008? Absolutely, which Neil acknowledges. Unfortunately, nothing in D.C. has fundamentally changed, despite Neil’s warnings and efforts to enact change to make sure the next inevitable crisis isn’t dealt with in such a haphazard, insincere (if not downright deceptive) manner without relatively simple taxpayer protections and a commitment to holding those responsible for causing it accountable for the consequences of their actions. The OLA (Orderly Liquidation Authority) given the FDIC should help, but its only one step in the right direction.

''I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Neil’s criticism of the revolving door between government/regulators and Wall Street/Big Law/Lobbying firms/etc (and to a lesser extent, Academia). One cannot deny that such a revolving door exists ...'' - excerpted from ..

Thanx for this heads up re.the book by Neil Barofsky that U've just read flip. It sounds really interesting and I enjoyed researching it. All the very best seasons greetings to U, Mayda & all your clan and crew.

You are a Republican electing Trump loving idiot!

Get over the Clintons and STOP electing the GOP, you are responsible for the Iraq War and climate change as much as any who vote for the GOP.

You can claim anything you want but when it counts you help the GOP win!

No doubt the DNC and Hillary did a lot of shit wrong, but nothing as stupid as voting for a Green.

Show me the one where Greg Palast says vote for Jill Stein or any ego whore Green? He would never be that stupid!

As ever, ''VOTE DEM'' - is ALL you have Got!!! Dork!! But then again - we all know .. how firmly your lips are stuck to the ass of ''the woman who tried to give healthcare to every American" but who was actually Very Close to Healthcare and Big Pharma Corps.!! U are such a shill for U$A's status quo, frf: STOP IT!

respice, adspice, prospice...

If stupid shits like you would stop electing the GOP we might be able to do something about this shit, but you LOVE Trump so much you just can't help yourself, oh and Jill Stein is not just a ego whore she is also a Russian puppet.

oh and hate the Clintons is ALL you have you don't care about shit except attacking the Dems.

You speak like a DNC agent & were it not for threads like these ...

... I may think that U were exactly that! I don't hold it against U that U (& your family?) are registered Dems but spewing DNC/DLC/HRC talking points like: ''Jill Stein is not just a ego whore she is also a Russian puppet'' ... will get U seriously slapped on this OWS Forum! Jill Stein is FAR closer to OWS positions ... than SHillary Rancid Clinton could ever be!! Your silly Zero Sum Game, Binary, Duopoly demoCRAZY deMOCKERYcy is a BIG FAIL & so despite your age .. it is time to learn a few new trix dog 'cause U are seriously barking up the wrong tree from a US 99% p-o-v, with your HRC fixation!!!

''Now get this point loud & fkn clear here: U do NOT "STOP electing the GOP" by being the GOPLite!'' My politics is to Left of U$A's Green Party and closer to Kshama Sawant and her party:

have a woofly Xmas & NY - ya big galoot!

Are you a Russian sock puppet? You sound like one, if you are a real person you are one that really loves Donald J Trump.

Yeah bragging about how co-opted the forum has been by Green Party political hacks is hardly a "threat".

Greens are after all the stupidest people on Earth.

I'm an avowed Socialist, so in your heavily pre-programmed RW mind, that makes me a "Russian" no doubt lol!!! Feel free to ...
