Tom Cruise is getting to go to outer space, Elon Musk and Space X are sending Tom to the International Space Station. If you succeed in the entertainment industry then the whole world is yours, Tom gets money, fame, hot women, he eats at all of the best restaurants, he is invited to all of the best parties and events, the whole world belongs to Tom Cruise, he is living a great life, if you succeed as an actor then you get the best of everything.

I at least had to try to be an actor, if I would have succeeded then I could be living in Malibu with a rich hot wife, with all of the best of everything, with a home and winery in Italy, and whatever else I want. Success is great, it is worth the hard work and sacrifice if you make it. I had to try. I put everything I had into it.

But I still have my movie script and my poetry book that maybe I can make money on, and then I can invest in a night club in Rome and a vineyard, etc. I still might be able to make some money and enjoy the rest of my life. And I have ideas for a couple of television shows that maybe I can sell, or produce, we will see. And I can produce movies, etc. We will see what happens.

And I knew when I started studying and training that the entertainment industry was a hard industry and that I might not succeed, or that it might take 20 years to become an over-night success.

Tom Cruise just has that special gift, and you either have it or you don't, and if you have that gift then the whole world is yours.

A big impediment to ending homelessness in Los Angeles is that one hand of our bureaucracy too often doesn’t know what the other hand is doing. Either through state density bonus laws or city land use decisions, affordable housing gets built, but the units are not well linked to the people who need them.

For the past couple of years, I have been arguing that we should be requiring or incentivizing that affordable housing units be linked to our homeless service authority’s database so we can quickly match supply with demand.

Today, the City Council voted to approve legislation I authored calling on relevant city departments to report back within 90 days on opportunities to match people who are unhoused with new affordable housing units.

This is one of ten things I have proposed to help end homelessness in Los Angeles. Find out more about this idea, and the other nine, at
And my reply...

Some other ideas...

There can be hostels like in Rome, Italy, where people can take a nice hot shower and where they can sleep in a nice comfortable bed for $15 per night.

There can be bed and breakfast type establishments.

The homeless drug addicts and alcoholics can get treatment at camps in Acton, and in Lake Hughes, etc, they can do the 12 Step Programs at the camps, and they can do 90 day treatment programs to get clean and sober.

Habitat for Humanity and Homeboy Industries and Chrysalis and others can help to build retirement housing for homeless people 55 and older, to get the homeless seniors off of the streets and into housing.

The foster youth can be helped when they are young so that they do not end up homeless when they turn 18, and we need more programs to help the foster youth, we need to help them to be be successful instead of homeless. Also, the foster youth can have internships at the movie studios, etc, we need to create opportunities for the foster youth.

We need programs to help the children who do not have fathers, we need to help the children who are at risk of becoming homeless.

We need to help the women who become homeless as they escape violence and abuse.

There can be more Wellness Centers such as the new Wellness Center in Orange, where people can go for help if they become homeless. And also in Orange County you can call 2-1-1 on your cell phone if you become homeless, and people will help you.

We need for the workers to be paid fair so that they can afford housing if they work, we need fair wages, and wages must match the cost of living. If you are honest and if you work hard, then you need to be able to afford a place to live. The unions can help the workers to be paid fair. People need to fight for fair pay.

The unions can help to connect homeless people with jobs, along with groups like Chrysalis and Homeboy Industries, and the employment office, etc.

Those are a few more ideas for you.

Keep up the great work!

When I was a child in San Bernardino, California, we lived on a street named Barton Street, and the street was named after an early developer and Mayor of San Bernardino, Hiram M. Barton.

San Bernardino was nice for a long time, but then it went down hill. People need to be creative and people need to work hard in good ways in order to breath life back into San Bernardino.

Anyhow, I just thought that you might find that interesting.

Due to people being banned from Facebook and other sites for hate speech, some people are going to a site called "Parler" to discuss politics, etc.
I guess it is total freedom of speech, and you just duke it out.
I do not feel the desire to go read a bunch of hate speech, and I love the Jews, so I am not going to join Parler.
And I have never had any problems on Facebook because I do not post hate speech. Facebook is just fine for now.

The Greeks can help the people of the Philippines, and in turn the people of the Philippines can help the Greeks...

The Greeks are amazing, when Athens had their empire, they built their whole empire with a central banking system, and they had science, and drama, and astronomy, and mythology, and democracy and good human rights, etc, they laid the foundation for civilization. Then when the Romans took over, they had Greek teachers to teach their children and they had Greek public servants running their government, etc. My first class at AVC was Euclidian Geometry, and Euclid and those guys were amazing. And of course our colleges all have Greek letter organizations. The Greeks continue to inspire us.

I would like to see the Greeks invest in the Philippines, and create jobs in the Philippines. The Greeks have a highly educated population which understands business and finance, but the Greeks have a small population and a small work-force, but the Philippines has 100,000,000 people, and the Greeks can use the people of the Philippines as their work-force. The Greeks can help the people of the Philippines.

It is just a thought. I would like to see the Philippines become wealthy and prosperous like Greece, and the Greeks can help the people of the Philippines, and the people of the Philippines can help the Greeks.

Anaheim has a death count of zero right now, though the OC has had 4 deaths. If we can reduce the death rate to zero then we need to re-open, and the doctors need to all share information globally, like they did with polio.

The City of Anaheim posts the statistics for the corona virus on their facebook page.

If we can get everything down to zero, and then share the information with the world, then we need to re-open, and Disneyland needs to re-open.

We need to put water sprinkler systems in our forests, and if a fire starts then we can turn on the sprinklers to put the fire out. We can have water tanks in the higher elevations with the water sprinklers being fed by gravity. This can be done in our high danger areas for sure. Along with removing dead trees, and removing dead brush, and along with cutting fire roads, etc. I realize that people want to preserve our forests and want for them to be as natural as possible, but it is all a waste if it all burns, and it kills the wildlife when it burns. We need to do what we can to stop these huge fires from happening, and we can use the prisoners as labor, etc.

Here is a perfect job for an actress coming to Hollywood to break into the entertainment industry...

The Sunset Restaurant in Malibu is hiring, they need a hostess or a host, doing front door reception, answering phones, sitting people, and doing take out. The job pays $15 per hour.

When I lived in Malibu, the Sunset was named "Monroe's" after Marilyn Monroe, and it was the best restaurant in Malibu. I used to go there and eat and drink and watch the sun set over the ocean. They had the best filet mignon.

A lot of rich and famous people go there, it is a good restaurant, and it is located on Westward Beach which is a great beach. I used to go there at night and fish from the sand, it is a great beach.

On the issue of Iran...

We need to bring Iran closer to us, not push them away, and we should all strive to be more civilized, and I believe that we are supposed to all love each other, and we are supposed to feed the hungry, and we are supposed to give shelter to the homeless, etc. We need to guide Iran towards having better human rights. And I would like to see the sanctions lifted from Iran, and I would like for them to be able to do world trade with everyone else. Iran needs to have better human rights, and Iran needs to be closer with us, and we need to open up trade for them.

We need to look for good people in Iran who we can support.

And there is the Pahlavi family, some of whom live in New York City, they are friends with President Trump.

We also have many Persians in California, including in Beverly Hills, who can help us to improve relations with Iran, and can help as we work to remove the sanctions on Iran, etc.

And I will do like Aaron Spelling and I will hire the most beautiful women on television.
 And I will pay everyone well, I will treat people the way I would want to be treated.

You want to get hired or not on the basis of how attractive you are physically?!

Aaron Spelling always hired Playboy Playmates, he hired Barbi Benton a lot, and other Playmates.

But of course you want people who care enough about their careers to get training, and to study. So, I would be hiring people who are coming out of the acting schools and stuff, I want to hire local talent, and create local opportunities.

And many of the beautiful women who Aaron Spelling hired turned out to be great people, along with being beautiful. One example was Farrah Fawcett. 

It takes more than just beauty to make it in Hollywood. You have to be beautiful, plus you need to care enough to study and get training. Then on top of that, you need that special magic, like Audrey Hepburn, Audrey had that magic. Some women have magic. That is what I am looking for when I produce, I want women who have that magic.

One star just died, Diana Rigg, she had that special magic. She had beauty, plus she had that special magic. 

And I want to hire Mahlagha Jaberi so that I can meet her. She is a Persian model who lives in San Diego. I want to hire her. She has over two million fans on Instagram. I am friends with her on Facebook. She is 30 years old and single.

But, the first part is to get the money, so I need to get the funding for the research, and I will use some of the money from the research to pay for the pilot.

If Hugh Hefner was still alive I could just take the project to Hef, but Hef is gone now. Hef liked me. 

And of course I still have my movie script that is ready to go, it is all complete. I want Ariana Grande for my movie.

On the issue of a new pilot for a television show...

Writing the television show would be easy, then you hire writers and let them help. It could start out with a movie producer and a scientist talking on a train where the idea of "NOCTURNAL" is thrown out there. Then you do the tests, etc, and meet the characters from the show, and then after you have met the characters then the characters come together as a team and they save a family whom were held hostage in Venezuela and they go in and they save the family. So, right there is the pilot. Then when you have money you hire writers to keep the show going. 

And I will do like Aaron Spelling and I will hire the most beautiful women on television. I will have great writers with beautiful women. I like to work with women directors too, women make great directors, so I am sure many episodes will be done with female directors. I will get women to help to write the show too. I will provide a lot of opportunities for women. And I will pay everyone well, I will treat people the way I would want to be treated.

Color blind people have a super power, color blind people can see better at night than people with normal sight. So, they can drive a car at night with the headlights off to be stealthy, and they can see snipers in the trees at night, etc. The color blind people own the night.

I had an idea for some scientific research, and then as a result of the research I could produce a television show, and also the money from the research could help to make the pilot for the show.

My idea is that I believe that color blind people can see better at night, as we lack some of the things that see color we make up for it with more of the things that pick up light. I think that people who are color blind can see better at night, and are more nocturnal than people with normal eyesight. So, I sent some research ideas to UCI. I had talked with a scientist from UCI and he said that you can earn a lot of money if you get contracts for research and he said that my ideas might be good enough to get funding.

Right now the color blind people are not allowed to join the military, but if it turns out that color blind people can see better at night, then maybe the military can use color blind people for special forces, to operate under the cover of darkness.

Then with the results, and with the funding, I could produce a television show about a team of special forces soldiers who are color blind and who operate at night under a cover of darkness, they can go in and save hostages at night, and stuff like that. The name of my television show could be "NOCTURNAL."

The scientist told me to just write my ideas down on paper, with a pen and paper, and to mail the ideas to them, so I mailed them in. I have not heard back from them yet.

On the issue of the corona crisis...

We know how to fight this disease now, Anaheim is at ZERO deaths now. We use the blood plasma from survivors, and we have Remdesivir, and Vitamin C helps, we are learning how to fight against this disease.

All of the research hospitals around the world need to share information. Including UC Irvine here in the OC.

We can beat this disease, and we can lower the death count to ZERO.

Happy Labor Day!

I love to work, and as an actor and filmmaker the money can be very good if you are successful. Work is associated with having money and living a great lifestyle. Even an actor on "The Young and the Restless" starts out at $30,000.00 per week, and it goes up from there. And in California you really live a luxury lifestyle if you have money. I am grateful for the people who built up the film and television industry, and I am grateful for the opportunities here in California.

A lot of people want to get wealthy so that they can retire, but not me, I want to get wealthy so that I can work. I want to get wealthy and I want to start my own company, and I am going to work hard. And I am going to make so much money that can afford to give money away to the poor and to the needy.

I hate being poor and begging for work. When I have my own company I can work for myself. And I will be cool and I will create jobs for other people and I will pay them well and they will love working for me.

And for instance, if I buy a vineyard and winery in Italy, I can hire workers from the Philippines to help me, they all speak English, they are Christians, and they work hard. If I pay them fair and treat them well then they will love me. We can have feasts and parties at the vineyard, it will be great.

For me, I do not want to get my script sold and retire, I want to invest the money that I make so that I can work. I want to open a night club in Rome, and I want to buy a vineyard and winery in Tuscany, and I want to produce movies. And I would act if I got the chance, you never get too old to act.

And I will help my wife with her business, when I get a wife. She can work too. She could have her own brand of French perfume, whatever.

I want to work and make money.

And may God bless us all today on Labor Day.
