Must have only asked the rich ones because the majority are in no way, shape or form living the dream or have any possibility of achieving it on an individual level. Especially in a country where you can be handcuffed, lying face down and still get shot in the back. Breathing while black is still dangerous and will remain so for many more years.
Shades of the Iran hostage release. Of course they do. There is no guarantee that Obama might find the use of phosphorus bombs and blowing up schools and UN buildings to be the proper way to force one's enemies back to the stone age they've never had a chance to leave.
And if you don't want to join the military because it's the only "job" in town, if you wait just a little while there should be an explosion in prison guard jobs. This country will not go peacefully into its economic ice age.
Meetings are a waste of time. Gee, anyone (except the bosses) having suffered through more than one could have told them that. I wonder what the next news to anybody with a functioning brain blurb will be.
There's a plot on Lost and it makes sense? Wow. The Smoke Monster wasn't just a stray plot device? I quit watching halfway through the second season, the Tailies drove me nuts. Specifically that Rodriguez woman. Her character didn't die soon enough to make me continue watching.
I can go along with that. Unfortunately what's been lost over the years has been giving people the skills to do for the country. If schools aren't getting through to kids by teaching them to read, write, color, lay music, do simple math and learn to think for themselves, then the likelihood of being able to do good for your country drops proportionally (hopefully not geometrically) and since you can't contribute, you are reduced to taking. Whether it be soup lines, welfare or the recent latest craze, stealing from your investors, the same lack of civil charity is not on their radar.
I'm still fighting to stay on the bottom rung of the greased ladder because if I get knocked off the down becomes an abyss. Trying to work my way back up means that I leave mom alone for too long and all kinds of weird things happen, such as things important to me go missing and are sometimes never found. This friend of mine with a psych background finds mom's behaviors and answers to be quite humorous but admits it isn't humorous to be living through it. Maybe in a few years.
