First Principles about America

Posted by:

FIRST QUESTIONS:

Is America an accident? A freak of Nature?  Or, is America the product of Intelligent Design?

I don’t intend to try to answer the second half of that question here as that requires an inquiry into philosophy and theology. But by the longest list of scientific and common sense proofs, I think I can say without equivocation that America is no accident. We cannot be a freak of Nature. So you can sort of figure out the rest yourself.

When Incompetents Cluster

Posted by:

A writer-friend of mine sent me a review of  a Cornell study from 1999, from a military website, about South Africa.

And when they are put in charge of a project, rather than shrink away from the task, they embrace it with vigor, then fail with pride…and denial.
