    started a topic Only in America

    Only in America

    We have a thread here called "Only in China".
    I think it is time to have one for "Only in America", for good or for bad, or for plain stupidity.

    Here is a report from Washington Post to start it off:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation...VmW_video.html

    You decide which of the three above categories this fits into.

    I have become very intolerant of intolerance. I'm particularly mad that Trump's supporters have turned The United States flag into a symbol of racism and intolerance. The US flag and the words "freedom" and "patriot" have been corrupted to mean whites only.

    It's particularly evident in the conservative south where I live. If you are a person of color and your car breaks down. Don't go for help to the house with several US flags in the yard or the health club named American Patriots Gym and it goes without saying that you should stay away from a house flying the confederate flag (flag of the southern US during our civil war).

    I wish I could honestly say "Only in America", but this kind of stupidity is unfortunately happening all over the western world and beyond, incl. in Norway:

    Interesting article on the "saviour of the world".

    This is why the Titanic brought so few lifeboats on board. To bring too many is to imply that a disaster might happen, in which case such lifeboats might be needed and might lead the ship to lose confidence in itself and capsize. This would have been disastrous!

    The last thing we need is to invite disaster.

    Trump held speech in front of a fake Presidential Seal:

    Hilarious, but I'm not sure if Mr. Trump has a sense of humour.

    From WP today:
    What Barr’s color-coding of the redacted Mueller report means
    Green: Grand jury testimony.

    Red: Reveals intelligence sources and methods.

    Blue: Compromises ongoing investigation.

    Orange: Impacts peripheral third party.

    Teal: Blue marker ran out.

    Salmon: Reveals unflattering detail about the experience of staying at a Trump property or resort.

    Crossed Out In Gold: President Trump was trying to highlight because he thought it exculpatory but pen was too big.

    Whited Out: Not redacted, just a typo.

    Crossed Out in a Zodiac Symbol With Many Tiny Pen Strokes: Person redacting watched cursed videotape.

    Each Letter Filled Meticulously by a Variety of Colors to Form a Picture of Saint Patrick Blessing What Looks Like a Diseased Hippopotamus: Guy who was redacting went on break, monk took over.

    Covered in Layers of Aluminum Foil: Redactor suddenly became aware this went all the way to the top.

    Crossed Out in Pencil With Question Mark Written on Side: Redactor wasn’t sure of information’s importance, reminder to go back and ask someone, oops!

    Yellow: This isn’t redacting! This is highlighting!

    Purple: Information compromises Byzantine emperor.

    Pale Green: Information reminded redactor of spring.

    Turquoise: Information reminded redactor of last time he felt truly still.

    Half-Inch Streak of Gorgeous Lavender: Lovely word the redactor wanted to keep to himself.

    Brown Splotch: Redactor was eating gravy and spilled some on report.
