christian bale is like Robert Downey Jr.'s character in Tropic Thunder who gets surgery to change his skin color for a movie. he's gotta CHILL! CHILL MAN! You're gonna give yourself a heart attack or stroke or diabetes for a role? YOURE IN TOO DEEP
I do not doubt Bale will turn in a tremendous performance, but what is the point in making a film about Cheney without actually addressing the controversy and conspiracy that surrounds him? Annapurna are fantastic at making movies that make America look naughty rather than nefarious.
Eeeh looks a bit too Hollywoodish, and I can recognize all these actors acting like or playing these iconic political figures, and so it takes me out of it. Maybe it’s just how the trailer is that’s making it look like some slick irreverent political drama.
The Genius Who Invented Economics Blogging Reveals How He Got Everything Right And Whats Coming Next.
Bill McBride, Calculated Risk The economics blogosphere was invented in early 2005 by a retired technology executive in Southern California named Bill McBride.
Thank God for that, because his blog, Calculated Risk, has been an invaluable and influential read for numerous reasons.
For one thing, its always been right. In its early days, when we all started reading it, it was way ahead of the curve in terms of warning about the housing bubble, horrible bank lending practices, and generally the economic collapse. From his perch in Newport Beach, CA he could see first hand the people taking out loans worth 10x their income, filling their Inland Empire garages with Harleys and Boats that they obviously couldnt afford.
But unlike many other bloggers who made a name during the crisis, he didnt stick with the doom and gloom message. He started making arguments for a GDP rebound in 2009.
Then in February of this year, he made his most important call: He announced: The Housing Bottom Is Here . McBride had officially come full circle from his days warning of housing collapse. Today, 8 months later, the housing bottom is becoming general consensus.
In addition to being correct on the economy, Calculated Risk has imparted the internet with other good practices, such as dutifully charting out the data, and examining data in an impartial, apolitical, non-hysterical manner.
