I watched bits and pieces last night. Missing Simon Cowell and his wit.

Noticed the growing crowds of hopeful contestants.

Everyone seems so desperate to line-up with thousands to have a shot at the gig.


There are no real jobs in America that offer real income prospects.

The kids (mostly) that show up at AI have figured this out and they audition.

Show is rigged of course. Cowell cashed in at the peak.

"Oh...my god......[look of desperation].  You were ab-solutely horrible!  Good god, did you practice next to a jackhammer?  You have no tone, no pitch, no sense of style.  Look at your shirt!  Look at it!  You look like you shop for clothing in a Chinese Goodwill [audience laughs, Simon still looks desperate].  Is that plumb?  You are wearing plumb, you little sissy!  If you like, I will take you into the back and show you what it is like to be a sissy. Yes I am an 'in the closet' BDSM maniac.  Should you know it by the way I act that I need an escape word? [audience gasps!  Simon still looks desperate]  Obviously, but enough about me, what about you?  You wore plumb to American Idol, for god's sake.  This isn't Disneyland.  You are suppossed to be a rockstar.  Wear black.  Now where's my schnoppes....daddy's thirsty.

Let me say one more thing about bonds- After spending incredible amounts of time researching the current environment, I have reached a conclusion, and I hope all my Asian investors reading this, realize the next biggest bond implosion will be from Europe. It will come swift, it will come hard and no CB of the world will be able to bailout the entire EU before it disintegrates. Period.

That is unfortunately what is about to occur. Hold tight.

'Idol', the most watched show on TV and the main reason the US is full of total dumbasses and the reason the FED can get away with what it does while america is busy voting on their IGadgets for the least loserest pointless singer around, is even shedding sheeple viewers. Uh oh...theres no app for that.

+1. The gov't has created an app called iShear, for shearing the brain cells of sheeple remotely from their iPhones, when things start to really fall apart.

Sounds crazy but probably true to some degree.

2. Millions of dead fish wash-up on shores globally.

3. and now...AI audience drops!

I don't think that TPTB are worried.  Everyone knows the lost viewership is either back on NavelGazingBook or porn.

Speaking of CNBC, I gave up all links to Cramer and CNBC. This includes Firefox favorites, TV and Sirius. ZH, Please get rid of that Cramer bobble head on your homepage. Im getting  flashbacks

Take an old white t shirt, draw Cramer's face to the best of your ability, put the shirt on a pillow, hit the pillow with all of your madness.  Take deep breathe.  Relax....

They still have a myraid of other brain cell killing shows such as Dancing with the Whores, Jersey Whore, The Real Desperate Housewives etc etc etc...

Ignorance is widespread. Ask around if anyone you know is aware of the sun rising 2 days early over Greenland, or what POMO stands for...

Words can not express the truth in your statement- I spoke to my plumber the other day (he's in his mid 30's) about the sun rising 2 days ahead of schedule and he said he never heard about it but "would rather NOT know" !!!!


Indeed, cognitive dissonance at work

Alot of people are going to be slaughtered by 'the elites' plans... unfortunately it's exactly what the bovine masses deserve for their apathy.

It's got to the state now where it needs to happen, for us to evolve as a species, we need to cull the weak, stupid and apathetic masses, they are too much of a burden.

The masses are to blame for this situation, how the hell did they ever fall into the trap of allowing a few handful of criminal, evil people at the top control them so easily. Society makes me sick.

Who paid for the collagen treatment on Mr Tyler's lips? Honey Pie loves the damn show, I just leave and grab drinks, hoping it's not on where I choose to imbibe.
