Only In America #11

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on December 30th, 2014

America is a special nation.
Americans are special people.

America is, indeed, special in many ways. Sadly, some of those ways are more of the nature of “short bus special.”

Only In America #11

Only in America, would a criminal, who caught a bullet and died for his crime, be suddenly canonized into a saint solely due to his race.

Globalism and the resultant outsourcing of many jobs is one of the banes of the First World.

Fortunately, there’s a growing trend in insourcing growing in the West, especially America. Yeah, especially in the field of Technical Support, I can see where insourcing is likely to gain a lot of traction…especially with the ubiquity of webcams…
