"In the red" carpet

It’s forecasting season once again! Yesterday, the Screen Actors Guild released its forward statements for the fiscal year. It estimates that the 850 billion dollar recovery package will lower unemployment by 1.8 percentage points and create 3.7 million jobs. They also suggested that the ensemble cast of “Slumdog Millionaire” was the best of several submitted tenders.

Opposing this outlook was the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which declined to see the same merits in any of the “Slumdog” cast. Further frustrating the Screen Actors Guild, the Academy projects lower unemployment by 2 percentage points in 2010 but with a much lower unemployment baseline than SAG predicts. Academy voting member Mark Zandi implied that the actual path of unemployment could resemble what the Obama team is projecting if nothing is done.

    See, now the best reason to indulge in conspiracy theory is to enjoy the thought of, let’s say…David Geffen: Rise my friend. Frozen Head of Walt Disney: Funny as ever, Master. The Economic Collapse will be completed on schedule. David Geffen: You’ve done well, for a Frozen Head. And now I sense you wish to continue your search for young Obama. Frozen Head of Walt Disney: Yes, my Master. David Geffen: Patience, my friend. In time, he will seek *you* out, and when he does, you must bring him before me. He has grown strong. Only together can we turn him to Hardcore Pornography. Frozen Head of Walt Disney: As you wish. David Geffen: Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

  2. 2 references to episode V. Do I detect a recent viewing of Empire Strikes Back? Was it part of a goodbye Darth Cheney et al celebration?BTW in case you’ve forgot just how many things the last admin did and didn’t do, my favorite link Hugh’s list gives a pretty in depth catalog and description of 400 acts of lies, incompetence and you’ve got to be kidding.http://www.netrootsmass.net/category/hughs-bush-scandals-list/
