That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back
America is in trouble. We face four major challenges on which our future depends, and we are failing to meet them—and if we delay any longer, soon it will be too late for us to pass along the American dream to future generations.
In That Used to Be Us, Thomas L. Friedman, one of our most influential columnists, and Michael Mandelbaum, one of our leading foreign policy thinkers, offer both a wake-up call and a call to collective action. They analyze the four challenges we face—globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation’s chronic deficits, and our pattern of excessive energy consumption—and spell out what we need to do now to sustain the American dream and preserve American power in the world. They explain how the end of the Cold War blinded the nation to the need to address these issues seriously, and how China’s educational successes, industrial might, and technological prowess remind us of the ways in which “that used to be us.” They explain how the paralysis of our political system and the erosion of key American values have made it impossible for us to carry out the policies the country urgently needs.
And yet Friedman and Mandelbaum believe that the recovery of American greatness is within reach. They show how America’s history, when properly understood, offers a five-part formula for prosperity that will enable us to cope successfully with the challenges we face. They offer vivid profiles of individuals who have not lost sight of the American habits of bold thought and dramatic action. They propose a clear way out of the trap into which the country has fallen, a way that includes the rediscovery of some of our most vital traditions and the creation of a new thirdparty movement to galvanize the country.
That Used to Be Us is both a searching exploration of the American condition today and a rousing manifesto for American renewal.
115/365 : 'it's terminal'
“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.
When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.” ~Love Actually
I get really embarrassed when anyone catches me posing for my own pictures. It's bad enough that my friends & family have come to believe that I'm insane, but when other people come to the same conclusion, that's when I realize that I'm not completely impervious to the pain of embarrassment...
This was taken at the car park of Sydney International Airport. People just stopped and waited with a puzzled look for the Asian girl to finish her photo shoot. Lol... This was me looking very sheepish.
When my Mum first taught me how to drive, we use to get up early in the morning on Saturdays and I would hone my skills by driving to the airport (just for fun) and we would have breakfast in the terminal and window-shop at duty free...
There's something about any bustling airport that stirs me. You know when you're a kid and old people would ask what you want to be when you grow up? I never said Doctor or Teacher, I wanted to be a "Stewardess" [Flight Attendant], but unfortunately, I stopped growing at age 11, so my dream of boarding airplanes on a daily basis went down the toilet...
I would really love to travel one day, but there's no rush. I know I'm in a part of the world that a lot of people dream of visiting, so for now, I've decided to make the most of it... Even if it's just visiting the airport every once in a while...
As Henry Miller said; "One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things."
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend dear friends!!! *waves*
205.365y3 Winging it...
I had a window with a view on the way home...The clouds were awesome...
So, at the gate I asked if there were any seats in zone 2, closer the the front. Got moved up to the second row. The plane completes boarding and there are 2 empty seats next to me, Yes! Then out of the first class section comes a pilot followed by who I thought was a stewardess (flight attendant). Turns out to be his wife and they take the 2 seats next to me. Oh well, so much for stretching out.
The one thing that I don't like about traveling is airport security. I had some clothing, shoes and some bottles of shampoo and conditioners that were over the 3oz limit in my golf bag that was being checked through. They asked me to open the bag for inspection and I asked for what. She said the only thing in the bag could be golf clubs... no shoes clothing or anything else! I asked why and was told TSA was cracking down on items in golf bags. I thought she was kidding me but no, .. Then (here comes the good part) she says if I pay an additional $100.00 it could go through as is, uninspected!!!! So for $100.00 I can bring anything onto the plane!!! You have to be kidding me. You call that security? That's just a shakedown for 100 bucks... Just like, throw that bottle of water away so you can buy the exact same bottle 10 feet past the security gate!!! Please get the government and their stupid regulations out of my life...
