Progress is desirable and possible, but not on the basis of pseudo-scientific theoretical novelties and fads which are in many cases merely alibis for moral responsibility and moral training. Science is a mighty weapon, a glittering sword in the hand of civilization. But if civilization permits science to rob it of its moral foundations it will be a case of suicide by falling on its own sword.
America is an unique nation, culture, and People. No other place, no other idea, and no other people are quite the same as we are. American Exceptionalism is, in many and varied ways, a simple fact of life and objective reality.
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.
Yes, there are just some things that one can only find in America. This is something that the residents of other nations should, perhaps, be proud of and grateful for. 🙄
Globalism and the resultant outsourcing of many jobs is one of the banes of the First World.
Insourcing Tech Support
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…
Sometimes life imitates art; sometimes art shapes life. That latter seems more true of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, which less predicted than caused what was the future for that franchise.
The NYPD’s Discommendation Of de Blasio
(Click to Enlarge)
In this particular case, the shades of the Klingon homeworld could be seen as hundreds of police officers turned their backs on a screen showing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio speaking at the funeral of one of the two NYPD officers assassinated last week by a Black insurrectionist. It looked a lot like the Klingon ceremony of Discommendation, in which the individual is ceremonially shunned, stripped of honor, and severely reduced in social status due to his crimes.
Some – those who either are part of the Black Problem or side with those that are, and/or those with deep-seated psychological scarring and resultant pathologies – may well disagree with me, but I find this public shaming and shunning of de Blasio by the NYPD to be a very fitting start to his punishment for his dishonor and disloyalty.
