End of the world as we know it



Just a few random thoughts this evening. I have been watching America’s Got Talent and seeing the final 5 perform was telling because my favourite three made it through to the finals. The problem is I still don’t really know who I would pick to win the million dollar prize and a Vegas show. The key thing for me is the Vegas show part because I have to ask who would pay to watch one of these acts. My choices are Nuttin’ But Strings, Eli Mattson and Queen Emma but there is still a dilemma.


In the finals NBS handily beats everyone and also fills the full Vegas show requirement but I still think Eli and Queen Emma could do it..though I am not sure. Let the voters decide I say.


Other than that I actually watched GWB’s speech on the US government’s proposed financial intervention in the economy. His speech was as close to armageddon as I could imagine. It reminded me of the speech of Yasin Abu Bakr in Trinidad when he had the attempted coup and went on radio and said “don’t loot!” which was an encouragement to loot. GWB basically pointed out what I have been thinking for a week or so. Essentially, I think the US economic system is on the verge of collapse. Bush talking was enough to trigger a major collapse because he spoke of awful consequences. The man cannot look blase. I am still very worried about the crisis on Wall Street but I worry about the consequence of intervention. We are talking about $700 billion in intervention but none before. Odd.

And after my pal Bunny said goodbye I am also thinking about saying goodbye to this blog.



Off to bed I go.
