Steve Jobs should expect to be rich

President Obama says Jobs is the American dream
President Obama said Apple's CEO Steve Jobs' was an example of a bloke who should expect to be rich in America. Obama, speaking today during a White House press conference, said that something the greatest strength of America is a thriving, booming middle class, where everybody has got a shot at the American dream.

“We celebrate somebody like a Steve Jobs, who has created two or three different revolutionary products. We expect that person to be rich, and that's a good thing. We want that incentive. That's part of the free market," he said.

So basically what the American dream is to be someone who repackages cheap components in foreign parts using cut price labour and flog it at greatly inflated prices back home. It is part of the American dream to earn cash flogging products with a limited shelf life and make your employees lives a nightmare with low wages and regular inquisitions to see if you are talking to the media.

Apparently it is also part of the American dream to want to control others and create a cargo cult of personality where reality is out to lunch. If Americans are dreaming that, it is fairly clear why ultimately its Empire is doomed.
