This is one of the coolest things ever: Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness from NBC’s “Parks & Recreation.”
Capitalism: God’s way of determining who is smart, and who is poor.
Poise: Sting like a bee. Do not float like a butterfly. That’s ridiculous.
America: The only country that matters. If you want to experience other “cultures” use an atlas or a ham radio.
Honor: If you need it defined, you don’t have it.

A new game is being released in Poland to teach the young people what it was like under Communist rule when even the most basic products were difficult to obtain and waiting in line was a way of life.
The Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) is to release an educational board game called “Queue”, aimed at ‘raising awareness’ among the young of what everyday life in communist Poland was like.
Each player gets a list of ten goods which they must buy. They learn, however, that getting desired products, such as shoes, toilet paper, coffee or furniture, is not an easy task – just as it was in the dark days of communism.
With the collapsed Soviet Union no longer serving as a cautionary reminder of what life without freedom is like, perhaps American young people need to be exposed to this game as well.
