The American Dream: You have to be asleep to believe it (warning profanity)
George Carlin, a comedian after my own heart.
The American Dream is dead. At least in my opinion I will not claim that as fact especially here based on the reception I have been given by some :)
The American Dream is dead. The social and economic ladder that once supported growth from the bottom up has been demolished. Many things have led to this downfall of owning your own home and retiring at 50 or 60 years old to live out your Golden Years in peace and harmony. It started with the government allowing for mortgages to be easier to access and to be spread out over 30 years. The banks playing with the housing bubble and allowing it to pop. Corporations have become people and with that Wall Street thugs are now on corporate welfare.
However I will leave my own opinions there for now. The point of the post is this. George Carlin on The American Dream. Enjoy!
