Horses, gambling, and the American Dream

I saw Seabuiscut the other night, for free. While it's a great movie and the reviews of it are glowing hot like George Foreman grills left on too long, I thought I'd point out a few interesting observations:

  1. The film is largely about Tobey Maguire's ass. It's either darting across the screen trying to beat the other asses, or it's getting beaten up.
  2. The American dream is actually gambling. Gambling on stocks, boxing, horse races...

Therefore, I suppose "trickle-down economics" is just wealthy people buying horses (or corporations) and spinning stories so that the common people can know who to bet their money on. This gives them hope.
