I'm going to an economic "recovery" training today in Downtown Los Angeles. I'll be at the L.A. Cathedral, at their adjacent conference center or something. Beautiful building, and it's in a pretty nice part of the city, so it should be neat to spend the whole day there and meet new people from all over the county. It's being held by our union, and they're providing us with food! Free food and I don't have to go to work and get paid for the day discussing our current economic crisis and possible solutions! COOL DEAL! I hope however, I can keep my big realistic pessimistic yap shut long enough however and not scare the rest of the participants there. Ya see, with all the reading and research I've been doing on this current economic mess, the outlook is DIRE. ABSOLUTELY DIRE. The America we grew up with and have come to know is finished; our debt is so overwhelming, we are broke. PLAIN FLAT BROKE. The dollar is on its way to its doom, job losses will get worse, and the whole system is on its way to complete collapse. Although Obama is going to prop up the crumbling empire a bit longer with stimulus packages and bailouts here and there, it's only a mere bandage for what's coming. Don't be scared my friends, although how can one not be? Stock up on supplies, food, water, and other things as much as possible. This is advice I myself have to heed, and pronto!
I don't know what's up with Sir Paul McCartney, but they say his relationship with some American woman who is wealthy herself is getting pretty serious. Well, here's hoping he's learned his lesson from his last failed marriage to the moneygrubbing pegleg. So if he's going to marry this new girl, I sure hope he's got a pre-nup ready. Or for goodness' sake, don't marry her at all and just live in sin! LOL! So what?! Fornication is the norm nowadays!
That cool lady who runs this blog wants my thoughts on Slumdog Millionaire, and I have yet to see the film, which I won't really watch until it's on DVD. It's getting rave reviews, and is nominated for several Oscars, which sounds like a bunch of overhype to me. People in India however, are not happy at all, and some feel the film is exploitative.
I'll end my post with a clip from one of the greatest movies ever made, just because I have been thinking lots about this spectacular masterpiece:
