Walking around New York City, you can't help but see long lines at newstands, delis, bodegas and other places that sell lottery tickets. The folks in line aren't just buying any run-of-the-mill lottery tickets. They're playing for the Mega-Millions jackpot of a stunning $650 million dollars.
Interesting how many people aspire to be the 1%. Granted, the lottery players aspire to be the 1% without having first done the hard work and having made the sacrifices to get there. But the long lines indicate that---despite what Occupy Wall Street wants you to believe---America is still an aspirational society. We don't demonize the rich because we all aspire to BE the rich.
That's the one thing the OWS crazies missed---or thought they could bury. I wonder how many of them are holding Mega-Millions tickets tonight.
I've got my dollar and a dream, and I'm in it to win it. If you don't hear from me tomorrow, you'll know why.
