Bill Maher's American Dream

Bill Maher says the American dream is dead since a lifestyle of a home, 1 car, a vacation, and eating out once a week costs $131,000 / year and the average income is only $51,000 / year.

It is amazing how those people in NY and LA don't even know we are here.


  1. It is indeed amazing.

    And yet the East and West coasts control the political landscape and they are quite convinced they know what is best for “the rest” of us.

  2. Bill Maher is one of those dudes that makes me think - "why am I supposed to care what this guy thinks?"

    Still, point taken that the various talking heads seem to think they have us all figured out.
