    For those of you who still think this isn't a serious matter, keep reading!
    Even the stars are feeling it in the pocketbook. And if those people are taking
    hits, then rest assured that John Q. Public will also be feeling the sting.

    This is gonna be a very bad time for a lot of people. So start focusing on
    more ways to boost your income, NOW!!! A few extra dollars per month
    WILL make a hell of a lot of difference.

    Hmmm... I wonder how movie actors' salaries will be affected, since fewer
    people will be going to the movies in the next few years. Just think, no more
    $20 million payouts for a while. :D :D :D

    Report: Susan Lucci Takes Pay Cut

    http://www.usnews.com/blogs/the-inside-job/2008/11/27/report-susan-lucci-takes-pay-cut.html

    The financial crisis has hit Hollywood: Advertising Age is reporting that Susan
    Lucci, along with others in the cast of "All My Children", has agreed to take a
    pay cut, as soap operas contend with a pullback in advertising -- particularly
    local auto dealer advertising -- and smaller audiences. Susan Lucci has been on
    the TV show since 1970.

    Did you hear Buick terminated it's long standing contract with tiger woods and also announced it would no longer provide cars for golfers to use at their own events.

    GM has pulled out of Super Bowl advertising for this next year.

    I think I heard that they were the #2 advertiser in 2008's SB.

    What crash is coming?

    These are great times to make money if you know where to look.

    Real Estate is amazing at the moment, very little competition, almost everyone is running scared. It is truly a great time to make money.

    If you guys want to save the economy go out and SPEND. This economy is emotion driven. If they keep airing in the news that the economy is bad and people buy into it, Guess what? "They are going to hold tight to thier pockets!" Thus creating what we are feeling now! I saw this coming LONG AGO. The news is BS. Dont buy into it. Theres niches and markets that are flourishing! if we have the eye of the opportunist to see it. Find out what people need in this present market , and offer it. If your providing what people need, and be creative in doing so, You shall be victorious. By the way , most ammount of millionaires were made in the great depression. Nows the time to buy the house of your dreams, nows the time to buy that car youve allways wanted. Now go blackhatters! Go make Money!

    Well I am not sure. I just heard there is a prediction that 44th president will be the last (is not Obama 44th?). There will be strong economical crisis and probably disintegration of country and a lot of problems. So crisis is already here...
