Getting paid a whole lot to do not a whole hell of a lot.
Person 1: Man, I don't want to go to work today. I just want to get paid to sit on my ass.
Person 2: Ahhh, the American Dream lives on.

"The american dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with oppertunity for each according to ability or achievement. it is a difficult dream for the european upper classes to interpret adequatly, and too many of ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. it is not a dream of motercars and high wages mearly, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognised by others regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position." (taken from "the epic of america" by Truslow Adams 1921 i.e the first time the words 'the american dream were used')- translation...the americans cant fulfill this as long as they try to out live everyone else and allways have a bigger and better thing then everyone else regardless of wether or not everyone else is, in fact american. it can also be said that this is an idea of absoloute equality, how is this the case when there exsts a president of the united states that can go to was with whatever country it feels like. AS LONG AS THERE IS AN EMPLOYER AND AN EMPLOYEE THERE IS NO EQUALITY
