The Hills Recap: Who Wrote Heidi's Letter Because It Wasn't Heidi





Let me first say that from 10-10:30 I had to flip back and forth between The Hills and the Red Sox game last night. The GREAT news is that the Sox won! The bad news is that I had to watch The Hills crapisode again to see what I missed. Watching two times in a row can actually make you retarded, so now I have to go to a special school. Anycrap, here's what went down last night on The Hills (Go Sox!)


  • Who is Audrina talking to about her date with Colin? Chiara (who will now be known as Alanis for the remainder of time) is sitting across from her (with her bowl-cut-mullet) but Audrina is kinda looking out of the side of her eyes. Alanis is about one more episode away from a cut-off flannel shirt and Birkenstocks.

  • Heidi and HOlly Ethel Mertz Montag are having a little lunch (sans food) and talking about how Lauren misses Heidi (did I miss that episode?). Heidi is kind enough to give us all a quick recap of why they're not friends, but I'm more interested in the girls sitting behind them talking on their cell phones and looking over at the table. You know those girls are texting their friends and are squealing like pigs in heat over the fact that they are filming a scene for The Hills directly behind them. I, too, would be squealing and I'm ok admitting that.

  • Audrina's date is not Justin Bobby and is not Justin Bobby-like. These two geniuses are having some sort of conversation about music and how Audrina likes music and her job isn't work and how she got her license and went to shows every night. Wow. After having to sit through this, this dude better be getting a little "dead-eye surprise" if ya know what I mean.

  • Whoa whoa whoa. Now they're talking about being happy drunks and how "drinking" makes them happier and gives them bigger smiles and love everyone. You hear that "youth of America?" All you need to do in order to be happy and smile more is drink alcohol! If it's good enough for Audrina and her date, Collin, then it's good enough for you. So, bring your bottle of vodka into homeroom and when you get caught for being hammered by 2nd period, just tell the principal that Audrina has instructed you to drink. If that doesn't work just blame gas prices and Sarah Palin's eyeglasses.

  • Back to "the date." Collin is about 2 sips into his Shirley Temple and has already asked Audrina out for a second date for dinner or something. This brings speed dating to a whole new level. All dates on The Hills are like this. The couple sits down and before the menu even get to the table there is already a second date being arranged. What happened to the good old days of stringing the girl along for 3 or 4 days and not calling her until the following week? I guess I'm just more traditional.

  • Meanwhile at S bar, the DJ is on Ecstasy and LOser is drinking orange juice. HOlly shows up with her bucky-beaver teeth and LOser continues to tell HOlly how much she reminds her of Heidi. No joke she says it like 3 times. We get it LOser, they're sisters.

  • Hooray! LC is at Pubic Revolution and she gives Whitney the letter that Heidi privately wrote her. This is AWESOME for two reasons. (1) It's a private letter that Heidi wrote that will now be read to a national audience and (2) We get to hear Whitney actually read! Since I am a complete loser I will provide a transcript of the letter and the actual way that Whitney read it. Go get your nap mats, kids, it's story time:

Lauren,
I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am about everythinK. I'm so sorry for every negative or hurtful comment I have ever said. That is not how I feel or who I am. I think you are a great person and I will always cherish our memories. Thank you for everythinK you have ever done for me. I really wish that thinKs wouldn't have turned out this way, but I take responsibility. This whole thinK has also been really hard for me.

Sincerely,
Heidi MontaK


  • Ok, so this would have the perfect time for LC to say to Whitney, "You said everythinK, did you mean everything? Do you want me to take you to a speech therapist?" Seriously this letter was probably written by the PA intern on the set moments before the scene was shot. And what friend signs both their first and last name? Perhaps LC would have thought the letter came from Heidi Klum?

  • Audrina goes on date # 2 and talks up J Bob and that seems to scare off Collin. Again, it's more interesting to watch the girls in the background text message their friends that they're sitting behind Audrina and are probably going to be on The Hills. If I was in the background I'd be doing Audrina impressions the whole time. By the way, that consists of me drooping my eyes, stuffing dinner rolls down my shirt, and waxing my teeth with butter.

  • HOlly heads over to LC's house of horror to try to reunite LC and Heidi. This is a boring conversation, but ends with LC fauxmitting that the only thing standing between her and Heidi is Steve Sanders. Please. You know that HOlly really asked her if she wanted to order pizza and when LC said, "yeah" they edited it to make it seem like it was part of the Heidi conversation. Ho-hum.

  • Lauren and Audrina are sitting by the pool minutes before the sun is going to set and Lauren gets all philosophical. She asks the question, "Where do you think we'd all be if Heidi never met Spencer." That actually is a good question and a scary one to think about. Basically what would have happened is that The Hills would have ended after 2 seasons, we would never know what an "Audrina" was, LOser would have been continuing to gain her Freshman 15 back in Laguna, Jason Wahler would have probably overdosed, Whitney would still be a 25 year old intern, Heidi's horse would have never got any airtime, there would be no such thing as a "Justin Bobby," Brody Jenner would be banging one of his sisters, Stephanie Pratt would still be on meth and shoplifting at Walgreens, Frankie would be carving wooden ducks on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas, Lisa Loveless would not be telling stories of running away from home at 15 to be a model in Paris, Elodie would not be my myspace friend, Natasha Bedingfield would only have one hit song, Us Weekly would have gone out of business, Perez would be half as popular, IBBB would have nothing to write about on a Monday night/Tuesday morning, etc etc. You still with me? So, at the end of the day, I guess I really should thank Spencer/Steve Sanders. He's changed the world in so many ways.

  • Finally, HOlly and Heidi are chatting on the couch. Why is part of HOlly's hair purple? Heidi continues to beat the dead Crested Butte horse about being one step closer to being Lauren's friend. Steve Sanders walks in like he just finished dissecting a dead squirrel he found on the side of the road and HOlly spills the scripted beans about the scripted letter that Heidi wrote to LC. Heidi's recap of the letter is a bit different then the actual letter. Whoever wrote the letter should have given Heidi a heads up on what it said.

  • HOlly gets a little fiesty and tells Steve Sanders that there's a chance that Heidi and LC can be friends and since it doesn't involve Steve Sanders it's a great option. Wow! I sorta hate when I fall for these tricks, but I was glad that HOlly said that. I mean, she's going to catch the beating of her life from Steve Sanders when the cameras stop rolling, but I'm sure it was worth it.

was it just me... or did anyone else think for a second that the DJ at S bar was Lance Bass? haha

jamie said...

Just thought I'd throw in another pointer about Whitney's speech impediment. I think you should also note that her "d"'s at the end of sentences sound like "t"s. As in "DouK saiT to tell you he's a dickheaT." And you don't have to worry about crediting me with that... keep it all for yourself, because I love you IBBB!!

Angiexoxo said...

How does Audrina go from Collin back to Justin Bobby? He's GROSS!

IBBB said...

Lisa - it could have been him. Let's pretend it was.

Jamie - Good point about the "t's" I'm lookinK forwarT to Whitney's new show!"

Angie - don't use hurtful language on this f'n god damn bitch-bag blog. Geesh!

ah, tues mornings are my favorite. i'm like a little kid at christmas, can't wait and get so excited to read the hills recap on IBBB!!!! lol..i think the funniest part was when audrina and her white chiclet teeth are on a date with colin and he says "you have the very beautiful eyes" LOL he has a thing for ceiling eyes. i'm kinda sad sandy sanders was not in this episode, IBBB is right, she was probably doing meth and shoplifting at walgreens! LOL oh and in "heidi's" note when she says "thank you for everything you've ever done for me" thats code for, thank you for making me a millionare lauren, because without you i'd still be on a farm in crested butte with my hOrse, big nose, small boobs, and driving my '96 saturn.

Does anyone think that they will set up the season so that Heidi breaks up with Spencer and Lauren and Heidi become friends again?

Oyster Girl said...

Was Heidi's hair pink in this episode or was it my TV?

And mark my words...HOlly will be moving in with LC by the end of the season.

Love you IBBB.

andy said...

Please, PLEASE IBBB, don't bring up the feakin' Red Sawx on here anymore. I love this blog and would like to continue loving it but the inclusion of those Massholes might make it impossible. I hope they lose and that Fenway burns to the ground.

IBBB said...

Andy you sick rat bastard. Why? Why must you hate Boston so? Now you seem to be a fan of this site, so as part of my strategy to tell out I will not trash you and/or where you are from. However, I can never promise to not reference Boston again. I can, however, fauxpromise never to speak of Boston again. Deal?

Anonymous said...

Oyster girl i think you're right, cause her hair looked pink to me too. Also, did anyone notice that at lunch with hOlly, Heidi had one blue/purple hoop earring and one silver-ish one? Weird......

Alicia said...

Two things.

1. Lisa D: Yes, I did a double take. I thought that DJ was Lance Bass too.

2. As someone whose hair is comparable in color to Heidi's (I know...) - purple and/or pink tints can happen for a few days after getting a dye job if it isn't washed out properly. Yeah, it's pretty embarrassing.

Amazing.

The first ever global depression will go down in history horribly misunderstood. What a pathetic bunch of ignorant fools we have become. Consumer junkie credit card morons. Perfect little victims. Say, that reminds me.

Don’t believe one optimistic word from any public figure about the economy or humanity in general. They are all part of the problem. Its like a game of Monopoly. In America, the richest 1% now hold ALMOST 1/2 OF ALL UNITED STATES WEALTH. Unlike ‘lesser’ estimates, this includes all stocks, bonds, cash, offshore accounts, and material assets held by America’s richest 1%. Even that filthy pig Oprah acknowledged that it was at about 50% in 2006. Naturally, she put her own ‘humanitarian’ spin on it. Calling attention to her own ‘good will’. WHAT A DISGUSTING HYPOCRITE SLOB. THE RICHEST ONE PERCENT HAVE LITERALLY MADE WORLD PROSPERITY ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE. Don’t fall for any of their ‘humanitarian’ CRAP. ITS A SHAM. THESE PEOPLE ARE CAUSING THE SAME PROBLEMS THEY PRETEND TO CARE ABOUT.

Ask any professor of economics. Money does not grow on trees. The government can’t just print up more on a whim. At any given time, there is a relative limit to the wealth within ANY economy of ANY size. So when too much wealth accumulates at the top, the middle class slip further into debt and the lower class further into poverty. A similar rule applies worldwide. The world’s richest 1% now own over 40% of ALL WORLD WEALTH. This is EVEN AFTER you account for all of this ‘good will’ ‘humanitarian’ BS from celebrities and executives.

ITS A SHAM. As they get richer and richer, less wealth is left circulating beneath them. This is the single greatest underlying cause for the current US recession. The middle class can no longer afford to sustain their share of the economy. Their wealth has been gradually transferred to the richest 1%. One way or another, we suffer because of their incredible greed. We are talking about TRILLIONS of dollars which have been transferred FROM US TO THEM. All over a period of about 27 years. That's Reaganomics for you. The wealth does not ‘trickle down’ as we were told it would. It just accumulates at the top. Shrinking the middle class and expanding the lower class. Causing a domino effect of socio-economic problems. But the rich will never stop. They just keep getting richer. Leaving even less of the pie for the other 99% of us to share. At the same time, they throw back a few tax deductible crumbs and call themselves ‘humanitarians’. Cashing in on the PR and getting even richer the following year.

IT CAN’T WORK THIS WAY. Their bogus efforts to make the world a better place can not possibly succeed. Any ‘humanitarian’ progress made in one area will be lost in another. EVERY SINGLE TIME. IT ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT WORK THIS WAY. This is going to end just like a game of Monopoly. The current US recession will drag on for years and lead into the worst US depression of all time. The richest 1% will live like royalty while the rest of us fight over jobs, food, and gasoline. So don’t fall for any of this PR CRAP from Hollywood, Pro Sports, and Wall Street PIGS. ITS A SHAM.

Remember: They are filthy rich EVEN AFTER their tax deductible contributions. Greedy pigs. Now, we are headed for the worst economic and cultural crisis of all time. Crime, poverty, and suicide will skyrocket. SEND A “THANK YOU” NOTE TO YOUR FAVORITE MILLIONAIRE. ITS THEIR FAULT. I’m not discounting other factors like China, sub-prime, or gas prices. But all of those factors combined still pale in comparison to that HUGE transfer of wealth to the rich. Anyway, those other factors are all related and further aggravated because of GREED.

If it weren’t for the OBSCENE distribution of wealth within our country, there never would have been such a market for sub-prime to begin with. IF IT WEREN’T FOR THE OBSCENE, UNREASONABLE, AND UNJUST DISTRIBUTION OF UNITED STATES WEALTH, THERE NEVER WOULD HAVE BEEN SUCH A MARKET FOR SUB-PRIME AND THERE NEVER WOULD HAVE BEEN A COLLAPSE IN THE HOUSING MARKET. Sub-prime did not cause the problem. It only accelerated the outcome. Which by the way, was another trick whipped up by greedy bankers and executives. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. The credit industry has been ENDORSED by people like Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Dr Phil, and many other celebrities. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. In fact, they specifically endorsed Countrywide by name. The same Countrywide widely responsible for predatory adjustable rate sub-prime lending and the accelerated collapse of the housing market. ENDORSED BY OPRAH WINFREY, ELLEN DEGENERES, AND DR PHIL. Now, there are commercial ties between nearly every industry and every public figure. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. It also drives up the cost for nearly every product and service on the market. So don’t fall for their ‘good will’ BS. ITS A LIE. If you fall for it, then you’re a fool. If you see any real difference between the moral character of a celebrity, politician, attorney, or executive, then you’re a fool. No offense fellow citizens. But we have been mislead by nearly every public figure. We still are. Even now, they claim to be ‘hurting’ right along with the rest of us. As if gas prices actually effect the lifestyle of a millionaire.

ITS A LIE. IN 2007, THE RICHEST 1% INCREASED THEIR AVERAGE BOTTOM LINE WEALTH AGAIN. On average, they are now worth over $4,000,000 each. That's an all time high. As a group, they are now worth well over $17,000,000,000,000. THAT'S WELL OVER SEVENTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS. Another all time high. Which by the way, is much more than the entire middle and lower classes combined. Also more than enough to pay off our national debt, fund the Iraq war for a decade, repair our infrastructure, and bail out the US housing market.

Still think that our biggest problem is China? Think again. Its the 1% club. That means every big name celebrity, athlete, executive, entrepreneur, developer, banker, and lottery winner. Along with many attorneys, doctors, and politicians. If they are rich, then they are part of the problem. Their incredible wealth was not ‘created’, ‘generated’, grown in their back yard, or printed up on their command. It was transferred FROM US TO THEM. Directly and indirectly. Its become near impossible to spend a dollar without making some greedy pig even richer. Don’t be fooled by the occasional loss of a millionaire’s fortune. Overall, they just keep getting richer. They absolutely will not stop. Still, they have the nerve to pretend as if they care about ordinary people. ITS A LIE. NOTHING BUT CALCULATED PR CRAP. WAKE UP PEOPLE. THEIR GOAL IS TO WIN THE GAME.

The 1% club will always say or do whatever it takes to get as rich as possible. Without the slightest regard for anything or anyone but themselves. Reaganomics. Their idea. Loans from China. Their idea. NAFTA. Their idea. Outsourcing. Their idea. Sub-prime. Their idea. High energy prices. Their idea. Oil ‘futures’. Their idea. Obscene health care charges. Their idea. The commercial lobbyist. Their idea. The multi-million dollar lawsuit. Their idea. The multi-million dollar endorsement deal. Their idea. $200 cell phone bills. Their idea. $200 basketball shoes. Their idea. $30 late fees. Their idea. $30 NSF fees. Their idea. $20 DVDs. Their idea. Subliminal advertising. Their idea. Brainwash plots on TV. Their idea. Vioxx, and Celebrex. Their idea. Excessive medical testing. Their idea. The MASSIVE campaign to turn every American into a brainwashed, credit card, pharmaceutical, medical testing, love-sick, celebrity junkie. Their idea.

All of the above drive up the cost of living, shrink the middle class, concentrate the world’s wealth and resources, create a domino effect of socio-economic problems, and wreak havoc on society. All of which have been CREATED AND ENDORSED by celebrities, athletes, executives, entrepreneurs, attorneys, and politicians. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. So don’t fall for any of their ‘good will’ ‘humanitarian’ BS. ITS A SHAM. NOTHING BUT TAX DEDUCTIBLE PR CRAP. In many cases, the ‘charitable’ contribution is almost entirely offset. Not to mention the opportunity to plug their name, image, product, and ‘good will’ all at once. Which is usually done just before or after the release of their latest commercial project. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. These filthy pigs even have the nerve to throw a fit and spin up a misleading defense with regard to ‘federal tax revenue’. ITS A SHAM. THEY SCREWED UP THE EQUATION TO BEGIN WITH.

If the middle and lower classes had a greater share of the pie, they could easily cover a greater share of the federal tax revenue. They are held down in many ways because of greed. Wages remain stagnant for millions because the executives, celebrities, athletes, attorneys, and entrepreneurs, are paid millions. They over-sell, over-charge, under-pay, outsource, cut jobs, and benefits to increase their bottom line. As their profits rise, so do the stock values. Which are owned primarily by the richest 5%. As more United States wealth rises to the top, the middle and lower classes inevitably suffer. This reduces the potential tax revenue drawn from those brackets. At the same time, it wreaks havoc on middle and lower class communities and increases the need for financial aid. Not to mention the spike in crime because of it. There is a domino effect to consider. IT CAN’T WORK THIS WAY. But our leaders refuse to acknowledge this. Instead they come up with one trick after another to milk the system and screw the majority. These decisions are heavily influenced by the 1% club.

Every year, billions of federal tax dollars are diverted behind the scenes back to the rich and their respective industries. Loans from China have been necessary to compensate in part, for the red ink and multi-trillion dollar transfer of wealth to the rich. At the same time, the feds have been pushing more financial burden onto the states who push them lower onto the cities. Again, the hardship is felt more by the majority and less by the 1% club. The rich prefer to live in exclusive areas or upper class communities. They get the best of everything. Reliable city services, new schools, freshly paved roads, upscale parks, etc. The middle and lower class communities get little or nothing without a local tax increase. Which, they usually can’t afford. So the red ink flows followed by service cuts and lay-offs. All because of the OBSCENE distribution of bottom line wealth in this country. Anyway, when you account for all federal, state, and local taxes, the middle class actually pay about the same rate as the rich. The devil is in the details. So when people forgive the rich for their incredible greed and then praise them for paying a greater share of the FEDERAL income taxes, its like nails on a chalk board. I can not accept any theory that our economy would suffer in any way with a more reasonable distribution of wealth. After all, it was more reasonable 30 years ago. Before Reaganomics came along. Before GREED became such an epidemic. Before we had an army of over-paid executives, bankers, celebrities, athletes, attorneys, doctors, investors, entrepreneurs, developers, and sold-out politicians to kiss their asses. As a nation, we were in much better shape. Strong middle class, free and clear assets, lower crime rate, more widespread prosperity, stable job market, lower deficit, etc. Our economy as a whole was much more stable and prosperous for the majority. WITHOUT LOANS FROM CHINA.

Now, we have a more obscene distribution of bottom line wealth than ever before. We have a sold-out government, crumbling infrastructure, energy crisis, home foreclosure epidemic, credit crunch, weak US dollar, 13 figure national deficit, and 12 figure annual shortfall. The cost of living is higher than ever before. Most people can’t even afford basic health care. ALL BECAUSE OF GREED.

I really don’t blame the 2nd -5th percentiles in general. No economy could ever function without some reasonable scale of personal wealth and income. But it can’t be allowed to run wild like a mad dog. ALBERT EINSTEIN TRIED TO MAKE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND. UNBRIDLED CAPITALISM ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT WORK. TOP HEAVY ECONOMIES ALWAYS COLLAPSE. Bottom line: The richest 1% will soon tank the largest economy in the world. It will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. The American dream will be shattered. and that's just the beginning. Greed will eventually tank every major economy in the world. Causing millions to suffer and die.

Oprah, Angelina, Brad, Bono, and Bill are not part of the solution. They are part of the problem. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A MULTI-MILLIONAIRE HUMANITARIAN. EXTREME WEALTH MAKES WORLD PROSPERITY ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE. WITHOUT WORLD PROSPERITY, THERE WILL NEVER BE WORLD PEACE OR ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE. GREED KILLS. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL.

Of course, the rich will throw a fit and call me a madman. Of course, they will jump to small minded conclusions about ‘jealousy’, ‘envy’, or ’socialism’. Of course, their ignorant fans will do the same. You have to expect that. But I speak the truth. If you don’t believe me, then copy this entry and run it by any professor of economics or socio-economics. Then tell a friend. Call the local radio station. Re-post this entry or put it in your own words. Be one of the first to predict the worst economic and cultural crisis of all time and explain its cause. WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE.

So what can we do about it?

Well, not much. Unfortunately, we are stuck on a runaway train. The problem has gone unchecked for too many years. The US/global depression is coming thanks to the 1% club. It would take a massive effort by the vast majority to prevent it. Along with a voluntary sacrifice by the rich. THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

But if you believe in miracles, then spend your money as wisely as possible. Especially in middle and lower class communities. Check the Fortune 500 list and limit your support of high profit/low labor industries (Hollywood, pro sports, energy, credit, pharmaceutical, cable, satellite, internet advertising, cell phone, high fashion, jewelry, etc.). Cancel all but one credit card for emergencies only. If you need a cell phone, then do your homework and find the best deal on a local pre-pay. If you want home internet access, then use the least expensive provider, and share accounts whenever possible. If you need to search, then use the less popular search engines. They usually produce the same results anyway. Don’t click on any internet ad. If you need the product or service, then look up the phone number or address and contact that business directly. Don’t pay to see any blockbuster movie. Instead, wait a few months and rent the DVD from a local store or buy it USED. If you want to see a big name game or event, then watch it in a local bar, club, or at home on network TV. Don’t buy any high end official merchandise and don’t support the high end sponsors. If its endorsed by a big name celebrity, then don’t buy it. If you can afford a new car, then make an exception for GM, Ford, and Dodge. If they don’t increase their market share soon, then a lot more people are going to get screwed out of their pensions and/or benefits. Of course, you must know by now to avoid those big trucks and SUVs unless you truly need one for its intended purpose. Don’t be ashamed to buy a foreign car if you prefer it. After all, those with the most fuel efficient vehicles consume a lot less foreign oil. Which accounts for a pretty big chunk of our trade deficit. Anyway, the global economy is worth supporting to some extent. Its the obscene profit margins, trade deficits, and BS from OPEC that get us into trouble. Otherwise, the global economy would be a good thing for everyone. Just keep in mind that the big 3 are struggling and they do produce a few smaller reliable cars. Don’t frequent any high end department store or any business in a newly developed upper class community. By doing so, you make developers richer and draw support away from industrial areas and away from the middle class communities. Instead, support the local retailer and the less popular shopping centers. Especially in lower or middle class communities. If you can afford to buy a home, then do so. But go smaller and less expensive. Don’t get yourself in too deep and don’t buy into the newly developed condos or gated communities. Instead, find a modest home in a building or neighborhood at least 20 years old. If you live in one of the poorer states, then try to support its economy first and foremost. Be on the lookout for commercial brainwash plots on TV. They are written into nearly every scene of nearly every show. Most cater to network sponsors and parent companies. Especially commercial health care. Big business is fine on occasion depending on the profit margins and profit sharing. Do your homework. If you want to support any legitimate charity, then do so directly. Never support any celebrity foundation. They spend most of their funding on PR campaigns, travel, and high end accommodations for themselves. Instead, go to Charitywatch.org and look up a top rated charity to support your favorite cause. In general, support the little guy as much as possible and the big guy as little as possible. Do your part to reverse the transfer of wealth away from the rich and back to the middle and lower classes.

Unfortunately, there is no perfect answer. Jobs will be lost either way. Innocent children will starve and die either way. But we need to support the largest group of workers with the most reasonable profit margins. We also need to support LEGITIMATE charities (Check that list at Charitywatch.org). This is our only chance to limit the severity and/or duration of the coming US/global depression. In the meantime, don’t listen to Bernanke, Paulson, Bartiromo, Orman, Dobbs, Kramer, OReilly, or any other public figure with regard to the economy. They are all plenty smart but I swear to you that they will lie right through their rotten teeth. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. These people work for big business. The ‘experts’ they cite also work for big business. They are all motivated by their desire to accumulate more wealth. THEY WILL LIE RIGHT THROUGH THEIR ROTTEN TEETH. So don’t fall for their tricks. Instead, look at the big picture. The economic problems we face have been mounting for well over 20 years. All of them caused or aggravated by a constant transfer of wealth from poorer to richer. Soon, it will cause the first ever GLOBAL DEPRESSION. Its not brain surgery. Its simple math.

Like I said, you are welcome to run this by any professor of economics or soceo-economics. If thats not good enough, then look up what Einstein had to say about greed, extreme wealth, and its horrible consequences. I speak the truth. GREED KILLS. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL.

Its already underway. A massive campaign to divert our attention. Trump, Buffet, O'Reilly, Dobbs, Pickens, Norris, and several other well known filthy rich public figures have been running their mouths about the economy. Finally admitting a hint of severity after almost 2 years of denial. They even have the nerve to acknowledge the possibility of a US/global depression. Still, they refuse to acknowledge the single greatest underlying cause. Instead, they focus on policies, procedures, and circumstances that were born FROM the underlying cause. Dancing their way around the big picture. DON'T FALL FOR IT.

Remember: Our national debt was way up BEFORE sub-prime. Consumer debt was way up BEFORE sub-prime. The cost of living was up BEFORE sub-prime. Wall Street profits were obscene BEFORE sub-prime. The middle class were loosing free and clear assets BEFORE sub-prime. Our infrastructure was in bad shape BEFORE sub-prime. Loans from China were taken out BEFORE sub-prime. The dollar was loosing value BEFORE sub-prime. So don’t let these cowardly filthy rich public figures divert your attention or limit your range of thought.

THE CURRENT ECONOMIC CRISIS WAS NOT CAUSED BY A SINGLE POLICY OR PROCEDURE. IT WAS CAUSED PRIMARILY BY A MASSIVE TRANSFER OF WEALTH FROM POOR TO RICH. THIS ALSO REPRESENTS A MASSIVE CONCENTRATION OF CAPITAL WORLDWIDE. OTHERWISE, THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SUCH A MARKET FOR SUB-PRIME AND THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A GLOBAL CREDIT CRUNCH. MONEY DOES NOT GROW ON TREES AND IT DOES NOT JUST FLOAT AWAY. IT ONLY TRANSFERS FROM ONE PARTY TO ANOTHER. ALBERT EINSTEIN TRIED TO MAKE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND. GREED KILLS. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL.

A word for those who respond with the usual ‘I know more than you. Look how smart, knowledgeable, and articulate I am’ crap. Let me say this in advance. I don’t claim to be an expert in this field. But I did go on record with these predictions long before any public figure uttered the word ‘recession’. If you search long enough, you will find my early postings from ‘05′ and ‘06′. Including the first draft of this rant. Since then, I’ve gone on record against people like Greenspan, Bernanke, and Paulson. So far, my predictions have been accurate. Like I said. This is not brain surgery. For the most part, its simple math. When you concentrate the world’s wealth, you also concentrate its capital and shrink the middle class along with the potential market for every major industry. Homes go unsold. Bills go unpaid. Banks fail. More products go unsold. Jobs are lost. More banks fail. and so on. and so on. It happened 80 years ago. It will happen again. This time on a global scale. Throughout the cycle, the rich will tighten their grip. Concentrating the world’s wealth and resources even further and ensuring the collapse of every major economy worldwide. Think it can’t happen? Think again. GREED KILLS. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL.

Another thing. I don’t want credit for any of this. Otherwise, I would have given my full name a long time ago. As far as I’m concerned, you can put this rant in your own words and take credit for all of it. I don’t care. Just spread the word. Otherwise, the greatest injustice of all time will go down in history unchecked.

By the way. The bailout won’t work. IT WON’T WORK. The plan fails to address the fundamental problem. The middle class don’t need more credit. They need a reasonable share of the economic pie. They also need a lower cost of living and a chance to catch their breath. They need a break from all of the psychological marketing tricks and mass market BS. Most of all, they need to wake up and see the truth. GREED KILLS. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL.

To my surprise, two public figures have found the courage to acknowledge this problem to some degree.

On 11.07.07 former presidential candidate Ron Paul mentioned the massive transfer of wealth from poor to rich. He also hinted at the possibility of economic collapse. He did so on 'Face the Nation'. He was blacklisted almost immediately for doing so.

On 9.28.08 former secretary of labor Robert Reich referred to the obscene levels of income inequality as part of a "recipe for disaster". He mentioned the richest one percent in particular. He did so on 'Late Night With Conan O'Brien.

As far as I know, Albert Einstein was the first to explain the link between extreme wealth and economic instability. He did so in 1949. He explained how the first Great Depression was actually caused by a massive transfer of wealth from poor to rich. He predicted that it would happen again. We are about to witness the first ever GLOBAL DEPRESSION. Amazing. The prosperity of an entire world is about to be compromised. Almost entirely because of greed. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL.

The point about our government printing up more money was that it can't be done "on a whim" and that there are serious consequences for doing so (weak dollar, higher gas prices, inflation). I never said that it can't be or hasn't been done at all. After all, those loans from China weren't infused in the form of Chinese currency. They were infused in the form of our own. Not given to the middle class but instead to the banks in the form of credit. Its done nothing but perpetuate the problem. It never has been and never will be the answer.

Sorry if I wasn't explicit enough the first time. The original draft was written 2 years ago and intended to fit within 300 characters. Anyway, I'm no English major. So if any of you want to re-word this post, feel free to do so. Whatever it takes to make people understand.

I finally sat down to watch Monday's episode.
What I want to know is, why the hell does Lauren lose her voice in every other episode? What the hell is she doing to make her sounds like she's been up all night screaming?

Now, to comment on the "purple hair" syndrome- I think it was the lighting- almost like there was a neon behind her, making her hair a different

Thirdly, I want to KILL Steve Sanders. I mean kill him in a sick, brutal kinda way. Seriously, Heidi is a freakin' idiot.

On a final note, I think I have officially created a drinking game using the repetition of the word "friend" on this show. Either that, or every time Lauren says "like". What do you think?

I am changing LC's name to Dirty Sanchez. I can't stand the 'stache. It truly runs the entire show.

I am getting thisclose to not watching this show anymore.

Its very very jr hi, and not in a good way... its all just who is friends with who. And I can't take it. Spencer doesn't even entertain me anymore.

Darlene should have cold cocked Spencer in the episode where he was baring his teeth and pubes at her. Heidi really REALLY needs to get over the fact that LC doesn't like her, and never will. HOlly Ethel Mertz's lying to Heidi about what LC's says about her, isn't helpling. Lauren said none of that stuff, I don't think she misses Heidi AT ALL.

The Blahdrina JB thing is killing me. I feel like getting in my car and camping outside LC's house ( yes I know the address ) and tackling her.

I like a good train wreck like anyone else, but when the best stuff is the 2 minute recap and 2 minutes of 'next time... on The Hills' .. I can't endure MTV's 15 minutes of commercials.
