The incredible shrinking American Dream

When I was a teenager my tunes came from WLS and WCFL in Chicago, and they arrived via a little GE tube radio at my bedside. That had to do with the vagaries of how radio waves behaved themselves in the stratosphere.

That was kinda fucked up because I was a Canadian kid a thousand miles away listening to shit about "the Loop" and all that.

Chicago is a microcosm of everything that has gone wrong with the American Dream. You've got the elite on one side, which is where Obama came from, and your white trailer trash and ghetto niggers on the other side.
Looks to me there's a great move afoot to have those ghetto folks and the white trash at one another's throats fighting for the minimum wage jobs.

Or giving up on the mainstream economy all together and opting for the grow-op or the meth lab, and thereby stocking up the for-profit prisons in perpetuity.

Of course, in the pursuit of potential fodder for those for-profit prisons, we've had some hiccups disguised as human rights concerns etc.  I mean, black lives definitely matter to the proprietors of the for-profit prison system. If you took all the black dudes out of the for-profit prisons, they'd be out of business in 24 hours!

But these are tense times in America...

Anything could happen...
