Netflix TV expands to include Warner Brothers TV Library

In a deal w/ WB, Netflix will now begin streaming catalogue of TV shows.

"This agreement breaks new ground for both of us in the area of subscription, commercial-free streaming of first cycle syndication network and cable TV shows” Robert Kyncl, vice president of content acquisition for Netflix.

Are you employed?

Las Vegas, meaning Clark County, unemployment is at 14.5, almost 14.6%. The projected "real" rate could be as many as one quarter of the county unemployed or way underemployed.

Nevada unemployment is at 14.2%, which if you adjust to those not receiving benefits, could mean that more than one in five Nevadans are unemployed or severely underemployed. This figure is prior to state and other government layoffs, and despite a toughening of who is qualified for unemployment (many 1099 or seasonal workers on contracts are finding they are now denied unemployment benefits and therefore status that contributes to the "official" 14.2%).

Republicans are blocking unemployment extensions and further mortgage relief in Congress. The feeling that you need a Filibuster proof 60% plus 1 in the senate is crippling the Democrats and any assistance for those who most need it.

Republicans feel that deficit and holding the line on taxed are the priority and that damn those that can't (or as they see it won't) take care of themselves.

9 state join Arizona against US Attorney General Suit

On Wednesday, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox filed an amicus brief, which includes eight other states, in federal court supporting Arizona's recently passed immigration law against a lawsuit filed by the Obama administration that seeks to overturn the law. Also, the Washington-based National League of Cities (NLC) has passed a resolution renewing its call for comprehensive immigration reform.
Florida, Alabama, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia and the U.S. territory of the Northern Mariana Islands joined the Michigan brief, which argues that states have the right to pass laws like Arizona's. The Arizona law allows law enforcement officers to question the immigration status of people they have a "reasonable suspicion" are in the country illegally. "Arizona, Michigan and every other state have the authority to enforce immigration laws, and it is appalling to see President Obama use taxpayer dollars to stop a state's efforts to protect its own borders," Cox said in a statement. "My mother was a legal immigrant who faithfully carried her green card with her for years before gaining citizenship — it certainly is not too much to ask legal immigrants to do the same today."
On July 6, 2010, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder filed a lawsuit against Arizona and the state's governor, Jan Brewer, on behalf of Obama to stop implementation of the state's new immigration law. In its suit, the Obama administration alleges that Arizona's law is preempted by federal law and seeks an injunction preventing its enforcement. "Arizonans are understandably frustrated with illegal immigration, and the federal government has a responsibility to comprehensively address those concerns," Holder said in a statement on his website. "Setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility. Seeking to address the issue through a patchwork of state laws will only create more problems than it solves."
