SORT BY Relevancy
With one in four Americans upside down in their homes the American Dream has become inverted. 10.8 million people will consider walking out of their homes and starting over. What is involved in making this choice and how does it square with middle class morality or even religion?
Is America lost? Where we going? How did we get where we are? Why do we not hear a vision for America anymore? Today, your host, Bob Kirkconnell, Author of American Heart of Darkness, will explore these critical issues. In your host's lifetime a vision for America seemed to die along with the transformational leaders assassinated in the '60s. We will discuss:
What was the American Dream at the time of the American Revolution?
What is it now, or do we even have one?
Where are we going?
Any nation or organization for that matter has to have a vision of what it is trying to accomplish. Go into any hospital and you are likely to see it on the wall. Many schools and businesses do the same. When is the last time you saw a vision, or dream, for America? We need to talk!!
The late, great comic George Carlin did a 3-min./12-sec. comedy skit a few years back.
It basically encapsulated the entire thrust of what the Occupy Wall Street movement was all about.
Only a handful of people actually have a say in the affairs of our country and that is because they own literally everything ---> land, buildings, corporations, banks AND most importantly, the AIR WAVES!
They therefore OWN all of the rest of us. They have us by the BALLS!
They tell us what to think, how to react, what to focus on or not.
The 1% know full well that, for the most part, MOST of us will do as we're told and not bother thinking about any BIG PICTURE. They know full well that, for the most part, we are too bogged down with our own respective daily dramas - like survival - and that we will never mount any real concerted threat directed at their monopoly of power.
We, in effect, play the part of the victim all too well. We allow the mighty plutocratic machine to ram us up the arse continuously and relentlessly with the Red, White & Blue Shaft. And, we don't really work up much of a lather to offer up a real objection or complaint. We can only muster up a tinny whine and just continue to muddle along.
Having lost so many hard fought rights and privileges over the last 30-35 years the Plutocrats are now going after our Social Security & Carlin suggests that they will get that as well.
He closes his skit with a complete refutation of the so-called AMERICAN DREAM. He intones: "It's A Dream, Because You Have To Be ASLEEP TO BELIEVE IT!

“American Dream Builders”
Victorians - Airs Sunday, May 18
THE FINAL FOUR DESIGNERS TACKLE A VICTORIAN HOME IN THE LAST CHALLENGE BEFORE THE FINALE — The competition is at an all-time high with the finale just one week away. The remaining four designers must renovate a Victorian home together. Site manager Jay has his hands full keeping his team all on the same page. To their surprise, the contestants meet their neighborhood council for the first time. However, this surprise is minimal compared to the twist they are given by the judges. Two designers will be sent home. The final two designers will battle it out for the $250,000 grand prize and the title of “American Dream Builder.” Nate Berkus hosts while Eddie George and Monica Pedersen serve as judges.
Racism, The Bible, and The American Dream" (subtitled: "From Slavery to Obama: A Frank Discussion, from a Christian Perspective, on Racial Discrimination in America, and its effect of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness") is to dispel any misconception that the Bible condones racism and to point out that institutional racism is not only a social issue but it is a moral issue as well. The book aims to better enlighten the public about the seriousness of institutional racism that does indeed exist in America against minorities today, to reveal how the Bible actually speaks against racism in any form, and to redirect, as many as possible, those who erroneously misuse the Bible as a weapon to justify racial hatred. My motto: I cannot "cure" racism, but in my book I encourage people to stand up or speak out against it when they see it happening within their own circles. If just a fragment of the population begins to do that, then we, as a country, can at least put a significant dent in the racial inequities that still currently exist.The book is available wherever books are sold and and can be ordered at any online bookstore as well as directly from the distributor.
