Remember Brooke Alexander the american petroleum institute spokes model?




Funny we haven't seen any of her classy commercials where she tells how great it
is to produce oil with deep water drilling. All put together and sophisticated :puke:
Funny all the links to those ads and her picture from those ads are hard to find
now. I hope Ms. Alexander has tons of sleepless nights but I doubt it because she used to
work for Fox.

From Wiki

Brooke Alexander (born 13 December 1963) is an American-born actress from Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, USA. She attended college at UCLA. She originated the role of con-artist Samantha Markham on As The World Turns in 1994 and played the role until 1996. She has had roles in Magnum, P.I., Island Son, P.S. I Luv You, Tattingers, and The Last Nightmaster and has also appeared on One Life to Live.
She was host of the "WorldBeat" on CNN, then moved to Fox News in a correspondent capacity also appearing daily in segments previewing the day's program schedule.
From 2006 to 2007, she was a host of the "Real Simple" lifestyle television program based on the magazine of the same name.
As of early 2008, Alexander continues work as a commercial spokeswoman for various products and services, perhaps most notably the "Energy Tomorrow" campaign <1> from the American Petroleum Institute.

1981, Brooke became Miss World America and Miss Hawaii World
1995, Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Female Newcomer for her performance in As the World Turns

1. Just an actress whoring for the oil industry.
She doesn't have to believe what she says or does. It's just a role she's being paid to do.

Some people will do anything for money, no matter who it hurts.

2. That is how the hierarchy of money works.
Edited on Sat May-08-10 10:38 AM by RandomThoughts
Money has no moral component, so it can create a clone army, and be controlled by a single person or a corporate person even.

I don't know anything about that lady, but those who only think on money, not saying she does, but those that do, are metaphorically not the purest of people. Although we all have issues, and can always return to a better state that is not in that form. It is like it is possible for a person to return to being of better fruit, love of spirit, kindness and humility.

It should also be said, some people with money actually believe they are doing correct, and some do, but they do not put the money and luxury as first, but finding the better ways from their mind and heart. So it does not mean a person can not have money, only that money must not be the only thing that matters.

Hence the metaphors many know.


I like this song so much, just want to play it again.
