UN Week, A Plane Spotters Paradise

Aggiunto
 
Once a year, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meets in New York City to discuss all topics from security to admission of new members, resolutions to the budget. While the UNGA meeting typically results in traffic nightmares in the city as a result of frozen zones and motorcades, for plane spotters it is the best week of the year: Nothing else comes close.

Great pics and NY planespotters can rejoice. There are actually 2 aircraft from Iran with A340 and B747SP. I would not be surprised with one but 2 is surprising. Maybe somebody knows why there are 2.

This sorry show almost made me puke, why? Small African and Third World countries in general with lots of people on the verge of dying due to malnutrition and lack of medical services see presidents indulge in First World luxury, instead of buying their own executive perk 737 or 340 they could have flown First Class costing their nations a lot less. But try to make them reason.

Umm, it's that kind of thinking in their leadership that has resulted in them eating dirt for dinner. So it's not surprising at all.
Surprising would be the country in disarray and their diplomats flying coach.

Quick quiz, which country has an African president, flying on an expensive 747, with over 90 million people out of work, and a murder rate putting it in the top 1/3 of the world? Give up? USA is the answer. ;)

Imagine the President was 5th generation American-born Chinese from San Francisco.

How silly would this conversation be:

-Asian President.
-How's the President Asian?
-because he's yellow.... people like that think we're all Asian.

Silly preoccupations with politically correct nomenclature.

Each person should embrace whatever their ethic/ racial origins, whatever they are.

Seems that the indignation over political correctness should instead be focused on lower educational outcomes, increased rates of poverty, increased rates of incarceration, increased rates of violent crime, and increased rate of property crimes.

Once time and energy is spent on important things, little would be left over to be indignant over one's origins.

Same as a lot of USA folks, "I got mine, you get yours, cause I won't share".
