Money and beauty 郎财女貌

Published by under View from Bottom

A while back when a reporter asked Melanie Knaus would she love Donald Trump if he weren’t rich. Miss Knaus replied “Would he love me if I weren’t beautiful?” As if the common sentiment goes that it’s ok when a man wants an arm candy and isn’t ok when a woman wants his wallet. People […]

The AGs

Richard Blumenthal of CT is an opportunist and idiot. He couldn’t stop crime on the main streets, so he takes on craigslist, the obvious target or villain in his eyes at the moment. Connecticut might have the highest hedge funds but they voted in an inept attorney general. Thought of Eliot Spitzer. Although he earned […]

First Lady in Control of Building Her Image

I’m no fan of Michelle Obama, but I like the Obamas so far. Is it a true love that they deserve (for being a brilliant president and first lady) or desperate hope from the dogs in the water that the Obamas will pull us out of this wrack, this dicey situation? I enjoyed seeing that […]

Recession?

What recession?  Waiting at a traffic light, this tiny pinky stretch Hummer limo glided into my view. It’s dirty pink or fuchsia? Then a Ferrari pulled in a second later. No matter.
