Hat tip to Iowahawk for the idea of this interpretation of the American Dream in the Era of Obama.
Go to college on a government student loan. Don’t pay it off if you need the money for beer. Get a job. Get laid off. Get 99 weeks of unemployment checks from the government and supplement that with some work off the books. When the nearly two years of unemployment checks run out go on SS Disability income. All the while remaining in the 49% that pay no taxes.
You may have to drive a Chevy but you will have an awful lot of time to spend on the beach.
