This is a new take on debt as dollars. Don't let the time stamp freak you as it seems to fly by. It's a look at the banking industry (I know we've probably seen it all already) but this one is fresh and entertaining.

I've an early flight so won't be around until tomorrow evening but please star and flag if you wish.

Later gators... I'm heading to the casinos of better odds. The Wynn lets me cash out winnings, leave the table and even the hotel without penalty. I wish I could say that for my 401K.

Ok, apparently my lack of vid posting skills is hurting. Here is the linky I'm attempting to add:

A friend actually just showed me this and was about to post it here as well, thankfully I used the search before doing so.
Kind of bored so decided to watch it and find it quite interesting, I mean some of the stuff just reaffirms what I have read on here and other things bring something new to the table for me. So Star and Flag for this getting out, as it's certainly interesting. To bad it more than likely won't be shown on prime time television would be kind of interesting to see what kind of reaction would be given.

Since its founding in 1776, the United States has regarded and promoted itself as a beacon of liberty and prosperity. The meaning of the "American Dream" has changed over the course of history. While historically traced to the New World mystique — especially the availability of low-cost land for farm ownership — the ethos today simply indicates the ability, through participation in the society and economy, for everyone to achieve prosperity. According to the dream, this includes the opportunity for one's children to grow up and receive a good education and career without artificial barriers. It is the opportunity to make individual choices without the prior restrictions that limit people according to their class, caste, religion, race, or ethnicity. Immigrants to the United States sponsored ethnic newspapers in their own language; the editors typically promoted the American Dream
The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper classes to interpret adequately, also too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position.[1]
The American Dream, that has lured tens of millions of all nations to our shores in the past century has not been a dream of material plenty, though that has doubtlessly counted heavily. It has been a dream of being able to grow to fullest development as a man and woman, unhampered by the barriers which had slowly been erected in the older civilizations, unrepressed by social orders which had developed for the benefit of classes rather than for the simple human being of any and every class.
