    Now a days I think it is something like four adults with no children sharing a duplex so they have enough money to drive a nice car and party on the week-end

    To get rich.

    That's why America balls so hard on the business front regardless of our poor rankings on education, people come here from all over the planet to get rich, because this is the easiest place in the world to do it.

    I am proud to be an American parasite.

    So my dream is to have the taxpayers clothe me, shelter me, feed me and of, course, provide health care.

    That is my dream.

    I would hope it would mean different things to different people. There should be no attempt to pre-package "The American Dream"...
