Mariah Carey Spends £28k On Looking After Her Pets



PEOPLE get terribly upset when famous people spend obscene amounts of money on frivolous things. They tut about how much good could be done with all that dough. However, those people are stupid and wrong. Us humans need outrageous and wealthy people.

Journalists go mental and naked on Rihanna’s 777 flight

EVEN though Rihanna is the most annoying popstar on the planet (seriously, we get it – you’ve got a pair of buttocks you’d like us all to see and you will continue to try and make money out of an abusive relationship), even she doesn’t compare to the infuriating potential of a plane filled with Rihanna fans, sycophants and, worst of all, journalists and critics.

Everyone Is To Blame For Gone To The Wall Street

Victor Davis Hanson blames everyone:

No one dares to ask what really drove the wheeler-dealer portfolio managers… Who fostered the cash-in culture in which both Wall Street profit mongering and Washington lobbying are nourished and thrive? We citizens did — red-state conservatives and blue-state liberals… We may be victims of Wall Street greed — but not quite innocent victims.


We created the cultural climate for this shared madness. Television shows advised how to “flip” a house after putting in cosmetic improvements. Real-estate seminars and popular videos convinced us that homes were not places to live in and raise a family but rather no different from piles of chips on a Vegas table…The problem went way beyond real-estate fantasies. Five-percent interest as a return on our money was once considered pretty good…But soon retirement-account holders and institutional investors began to expect as a given 7, 10 — and even 20 — percent “return” on their portfolios.

You bastards!
