Teddy Roosevelt - Regarding Hyphenated Americanism

"There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all… The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic… There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man [or woman] who is a good American is the man [or woman] who is an American and nothing else."
-Teddy Roosevelt

My Daily Twitter

Here's what I Twitter'd about yesterday:
  • 10:23 is looking into SecureCI (is.gd/32goA) which seems to bundle Hudson, Maven, Sonar and all those fun build tools into one package. #
  • 13:16 can never have enough curry. #
  • 13:23 This looks naughty: Motion chart, a killer plugin to come soon : skitch.com/superbonbon/b6cws/sonar (via @SonarSource) #
  • 23:03 thinks there is only one Bowie and that's all we really need. #
  • 23:17 @crispoe ? #

My Daily Twitter

Here's what I Twitter'd about yesterday:
  • 08:19 finds it humorous and lame that Mac OS needs to restart in order to install a Java RE. #
  • 08:50 hopes his labor day is not so laborious. #
  • 09:11 wants to be a czar. #
  • 10:06 just found this lost Jack Russell doggie while running. He was walking around on rt 114, Standish, ME twitpic.com/gudkf #
  • 10:43 found the dog's owner. Apparently he is the only licensed therapeutic dog in Maine or something like that. #
  • 11:59 thinks maybe he'll start watching Fringe... #
  • 18:01 keeps getting lost implementing #GORM in #grails. Cascading saves from aggregate roots don't work as I'd expect. Frustrating. #
  • 18:03 is not a huge fan of #grails embedding repository methods in the entity. Convenient? Yes. But now my service has all this ORM code in it. :( #
