Dick Summer Connection

The “smart guys” on TV are telling us, “The American Dream is doomed.” I don’t believe them. They’re trying to scare us so they can get us to do what they want us to do. As Big Louie, the head guy of the Louie Louie Generation says in today’s podcast…”Hey smart guys…B.S.” I believe the American Dream is a little different for each and every one of us. And for those of us who aren’t afraid of the “smart guys” on TV…those of us who like to dream…it’s very much alive and doing pretty well. And by the way, when did the word “Dreamer” become an accusation…some kind of snide remark? As I mentioned in my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot, “Honesty = the truth + maybe. And remember, it’s the “Maybe” that feeds our dreams. Dreamers have an interesting history. Not that long ago people were saying, “Boiled milk? Louie Pasteur you’ve got to be kidding.” How about, “Of course the earth is flat. Just open your eyes and look.” And while we’re at it, notice how the sun spins around the earth…and land a man on the moon?…only in some silly story. “Honesty = the truth + maybe. And it’s the “Maybe” that keeps our dreams alive. Our personal dreams…and the American Dream we’re all lucky enough to share… those of us who aren’t afraid of the “smart guys” on TV.
