Ellen Degeneres: The beauty endorser

Ellen for covergirl
So Ellen Degeneres is the new endorser of Covergirl and Olay. I would have to say that I like the mix of Ellen personality plus the feminine brand variables of Covergirl. This indeed, is a great marketing formula.

I also heard that Ellen will be the very first non-Oprah cover of the O magazine. I said non-Oprah because it has always been Oprah who fronts the magazine's face. Ellen is getting hotter. Oppps, Im not too certain she'd like the remarks. Ha Ha Ha.

We are not getting out of this depression anytime soon. Its going to get a lot worse for most of us. It didn't have to be this way.

"As mass production has to be accompanied by mass consumption; mass consumption, in turn, implies a distribution of wealth -- not of existing wealth, but of wealth as it is currently produced -- to provide men with buying power equal to the amount of goods and services offered by the nation's economic machinery. Instead of achieving that kind of distribution, a giant suction pump had by 1929-30 drawn into a few hands an increasing portion of currently produced wealth. This served them as capital accumulations. But by taking purchasing power out of the hands of mass consumers, the savers denied to themselves the kind of effective demand for their products that would justify a reinvestment of their capital accumulations in new plants. In consequence, as in a poker game where the chips were concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, the other fellows could stay in the game only by borrowing. When their credit ran out, the game stopped."

Marriner Eccles, FDR's Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank - 1959

In other words, the first Great Depression was caused by greed. The rich couldn't settle for reasonable pay. They had to have more and more and more. That caused a giant shift in buying power from the majority to the rich. When the majority lost their buying power, they lost their ability to support the economy. The rich stopped investing because they knew that it would be tough to squease the last few dollars from the majority and make further profits. So the economy tanked. Einstein said basically the same thing in 1949.

Its even worse now. Because ordinary people havn't only lost their relative buying power. They have also lost their savings, home values, pensions, benefits, and nest eggs. This didn't happen overnight. Its been happening gradually for the last 30 years. Meanwhile, the rich have become super incredibly rich. The richest 500 Americans are worth almost two trillion dollars. More than the bottom 1/2 of American housholds combined. The richest 1 percent are worth over 15 trillion dollars. More than the bottom 90% of American households. Thats just insane. It can't be justified. I don't care how much work for humanity the rich claim to do. Its nothing but a cover for their incredible greed. We don't need anymore rich people to inspire us or entertain us or create jobs or make donations for humanity. We need them to just get reasonable about how much money and assets they keep for themselves.

Don't believe it when the rich claim to be getting poorer. Property values have gone down worldwide. Not only for rich people but for all people. Thats because of the concentration of wealth and income. When the economy slows down, property values tank. So when rich people complain about a lower net worth, thats a trick. They still have the same obscene buying power on average.

Everything that is happening with the economy is happening because the wealth has been taken away from the majority and concentrated into the private vaults of rich people. The same ones on TV and radio telling us how much we need them. How much we should love them. How much they want to help the world. Its a big lie. Just another way to promote their own business. Rich people don't want to help the world. They want to own it.

There will be no bailout for the people because the ones with all the money just won't give it up. Say goodbye to the American dream and hello to the American nightmare.
