The American Dream

This is actually a re-run from a few years ago but it was a fun "silent" strip.

There's been a lot of talk about the American Dream (no,not Dusty Rhodes) and whether or not it's still alive. The way I see it, the American Dream is all about opportunity and the ability to live life under your own terms. But it doesn't exist in a vacuum.

The fact is there is no singular dream. While many dream of owning a house, having a good job and having something put away for a rainy day, others have expanded this dream to include multi-million dollar mansions and unimaginable wealth. And yet others just want to live in a country where they can simply live in peace without constant war in their backyards.

Keep things in perspective and be aware of turning your American Fantasy into someone else's American Nightmare. And if you think that sounds like like veiled call for socialism than you really need to take up a relaxing hobby.

  1. "You really need to take up a relaxing hobby" is advice that would be well-taken by a vast swath of people, particularly those in the political arena. :-) Well-done strip!
