It has finally happened and I could not be more overjoyed.
I am sure that so many people have been eager and most willing to receive the knowledge that is about to be imparted upon us.
Yet another celebrity is going to give the common work-a-day person a virtual do it yourself instruction for a revolution to turn the world around and make it, as so cleverly put by Mr. Russell Brand, “how to bring down the government and establish a personal and global utopia.” Imagine that, both a global AND a personal utopia, with goodies and equality to burn.
Of course, this is the moment for which we have all been waiting. Mr. Brand has gifted society with two previous memoirs, yet he has again stooped to conquer, so to speak, in endowing us plebs with the insight to capture our heart’s desire. This DIY revolution manual is scheduled for release in October of this year.
If we can wait that long, all our questions will be answered. He plans to explain many social and environmental issues as well.
It is more than enough of a boon for us to have life counseling and political advice from the Brangelina, Michael Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg among others, we will now have this to guide us in our pursuit of perfect harmony with ourselves and the world around us.
These celebrities so relate to the way we all live.
All of us have our people. As in, “I will have my people get in touch with your people.”
All of us have at least two or three luxurious homes around the country or the world with a full domestic staff in each one.
All of us have three, five, maybe more cars with drivers at each of these residences.
It is easy to see how much we all have in common. Establishing the central link between our lives and their lives will be super easy. We will have a rapport, based on mutual experiences and the same struggles.
Reality dictates that many are without jobs that would like to be gainfully employed. Those who are employed, are often under-employed or working more than one job to make ends meet.
Gasoline prices have risen so much that it eats up most of the people’s disposal income.
Food prices continue to climb. More and more people frequent food banks and/or are on food stamps in order to feed themselves and their families.
During the last freeze here in Atlanta and the outlying areas, a food bank in White county had to open on Saturday as they could not make it in to be open during their regular hours. One lady interviewed by the local news was relieved at the special access as she had one box of macaroni left in her house to feed her family of four adults and some children.
Maybe it would be a better idea for those in a position to help the world to give of their time and treasure rather than simply toss out useless advice.
For those that do this, it is appreciated. The news doesn’t cover it as much, but you know who you are. To your credit, praise is not needed.
