at what cost, ya know? plus more and more our goals center around stuff, OUR being americans on the whole. it went from having a family and a home and then an education (cuz you pretty much gotta pay a bundle for that shit now) to

"providing all the things my family needs. a huge house, six cars, a bunch of cell phones, designer duds for my infants to grow out of in a week..." and duhdaduhdaduh. My pops used to always say dont let your possessions own you but I was always collecting all types of shit anyway. Now those words take on a little different meaning when I see people drowning in debt, considering their acquisitions accomplishments and seeking to fill the huge voids in their lives with commercial trash.
