. New contracts. Revenue. That's it. Saving $ on the cost side of the balance sheet is great. I'm all for it. But it simply will never countera ct the risk of bringing on new workers. Only the prospect of more earnings will do that. So please, stop saying and or believe that cutting costs (in whatever f orm: taxes, lower regulatory burdens, whatever) will lead to job creation. It wo n't. It may lead to great profitability, but not new jobs.

I always say, "The first thing is to know what you like and the second thing is to know why you like it." The temptation is to like what you should like -- not what you do like. You hav e to resist that temptation. And then once you know what you like, another tempt ation is to come up with an interesting reason for liking it that may not actual ly be the reason you like it. That's not a good way to write criticism." - Rober t christgau "1. Occupy Wall Street videos of police brutality I struggled with whether to even include this on my list, since technically none of the videos of police abusing Occupy Wall Street protesters really qualify as movies or programs in any conventional sense. Some of the most revealing (and often horrifying) images were captured on the fly with the tiny built-in lenses of ca mera phones, with rough sound that dropped out regularly and grainy images that bounced all over the place, usually because the camerapeople were being jostled by protesters or hauling ass down the street to avoid getting their skulls crack ed open. For the first time since the Vietnam era, a mostly young group of Ameri cans was out there risking injury and imprisonment to say what millions more peo ple know in their bones to be true but couldn t or wouldn t articulate themselves: t hat the very rich are legally bribing our elected officials, distorting our tax code and our regulatory laws, and otherwise rigging the game, such as it is, to make more money flow into their pockets, year after year, oblivious to the fact that their greed is shrinking the middle class and turning the daily lives of in creasing millions of Americans into a blandly degrading and endless slog, a smil ey-faced American version of a Third World sweatshop. For daring to even begin t o articulate these shapeless and protean but real resentments to very, very brie fly force cities to stop whatever mundane daily business they were doing, and th ink about this madness for a few days, or weeks the protesters were subjected to the full force and might of the nation s municipal police departments (and in som e cases, pathetic campus rent-a-cops playing soldier dress-up). The message was crystal clear. This is what happens when you question the so-called natural orde r of things: You will be beaten, kicked, pepper-sprayed, shot with rubber bullet s.
