Is The American
Dream A Hoax?

Mediaite, by Anjali Sareen

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 10:22:30 AM

We Americans pride ourselves on the idea that in our country, a little hard work, determination and focus can make dreams come true. We compare ourselves with countries like India and England and scoff at their antiquated caste systems, claiming that here, in America, you can build yourself up from anything. We sell ourselves the idea of the “American dream,” both as a draw for immigrants and also for less-fortunate citizens, but how much of our reality isn’t reality? Is the American dream a hoax? My parents were both born and raised in India and moved

Comments:
Of course it is, but not with Democrats in charge. There are so many things wrong with her assertions it´s difficult to single out any one thing. What she does do is assert every Democrat talking about putting "more resources into lower income schools," and "treating and paying our teachers better." Finally she says that the American Dream is probably not with the current state of our nation. The only thing she leaves out is that the Democrats are destroying the possibilities of achieving that American Dream.

No, not a hoax, but a faded memory. Democrats and leftists have succeeded in replacing the American Dream with a dependancy nightmare.

The American Dream is predicated upon Freedom -- free markets, individual rights, and a Government designed to encourage and abet both.

These things are on hiatus, until the current Administration has done its damage, and moves on to celebrate itself ad infinitum. But the principles above are like gravity -- always there, even if you pretend otherwise.

It´s being crushed by people who think dependence is freedom and responsibility is oppression.

A total crock.
I used to have to stick cardboard into my shoes to plug the leaks and all my clothes were hand-me-downs from my cousins. My parents were never wealthy in any way. We never had a new car (or more than one). I got through college by working up to 35 hours per week and a couple of college loans. I totally transcended my parents´ "caste" if you prefer. My father never in his life accepted unemployment or welfare. The "dream" is now dead. It has been killed by the political processes launched in the 1930´s. Social Security was only the start of the "gimme" mindset, where Americans expect their government to provide cradle to grave services. It´s all downhill from there. By the way, a college diploma is not a passport to success. My best friend barely escaped high school and now owns a thriving business, and he´s only one of many. Unfortunately, my friend and me are the last in the American Dream generation.

"Scam" would probably be more accurate.

I never understood why poor white Southerners fought so fiercely to preserve an economic system based upon slavery. It never did anything for THEM. Not only did most of them not own any slaves, so had no property at risk from abolition, but also that same slave-based economy kept generations of them poor by largely locking them out of the agricultural labor market. So was slavery a hoax? A scam? Sure.

Similarly, American wage-workers spend their entire lives working for someone else, scrimping and saving and going without in order to save a nickel here and a diime there, only to die penniless after they shovel all those hard-earned nickels and dimes into the coffers of nursing homes (owned by the same capitalists that owned the factories they labored away their lives in) as they slowly fade away into an Alzheimers netherworld in their final years. So why do we so fiercely defend capitalism? And don´t throw socialism or communism at me. BOTH of those are just alternative scams run by the same people who run capitalism. And they keep us divided by pitting black against white for the crumbs that fall from their table.

Cranky this morning.

This is, or used to be, a land of opportunity. It is not, and can never be, a land of guarantees. The promise of America has never been that with hard work and determination you are guaranteed to succeed, only that your position in life is not set in concrete based on your family´s racial, social, or economic, status. If there is a hoax, it is being perpetrated by those who insist that there ever could be equal outcomes for individuals while ignoring the wide diversity of people´s individual circumstances and experiences.

If you believe in the American Dream AND are willing to work for it then it can come true. My Dad died in a mill accident when I was 4 and I and my 4 siblings were raised by an incredible woman who sacrificed everything to keep us together. We grew up with no indoor plumbing and wood stoves for heat and cooking, but all of us but 1 have a college degree and the one who doesn´t has his own company. 4 of the 5 own their own houses and have never been on welfare even though there have been circumstances where they could have easily gotten it. My Mom took food stamps for one month and was too embarrassed to go back. We did eat a lot of government cheese and drank nonfat dried milk provided by the county but No section 8 housing, EBT cards or free phones. So Anjali, you little whiner, get up off your knees, hitch up your knickers and get to work! Nobody promised that the American Dream would be free!

A great personal success story for his family, but I wonder why they came to America. Surely with two degrees his father could have been a successful person in India, based on the author´s assumption that it takes a college degree to achieve the "American Dream."My wife´s uncle was born during the Depression. He didn´t go to college. Politically he´s the yellowest of the yellow dogs(a union guy). He worked for the telephone company installing telephones. He worked every hour of overtime he could get. He and his wife lived off of her paycheck and he invested everything he made in ATT stock. He became a millionaire. He got there without college but with hard work and personal discipline to live within his means. I believe this is a real life example of the "American Dream."

The American Dream--when it existed--just removed the barriers to advancement. It never guaranteed that everyone--even people who worked hard--would succeed. But no one would be stuck into a class they were born into. Unfortunately, the "dream" has morphed into something more like an nightmare, where government tries, not just to remove barriers, but to try to determine outcomes.

The Roots of CAIR’s
Intimidation Campaign
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/13/2014 10:12:32 PM     Post Reply
Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
