"A working definition of a person who feels himself elite in modern America "is that he doesn't integrate what he's learned from his daily life with his understanding of public affairs.
There is mundane knowledge that you use when picking out where to live or where to send your child to school, but only ignorant people apply that knowledge to thinking about what's in the news. Instead, people with class only apply to their Higher Thought the Higher Knowledge that they picked up from reading, say, To Kill a Mockingbird in junior high school. -- Steve Sailer's iSteve Blog: Everything's a travesty with you, man

To be an American is to be elite.
It takes all kinds, as America, alone, has shown.
Not Mark Steyn's book, the one WITHOUT a dead Uncle Sam on the cover...
The demographic book not about WFB, in direct.

Easy to imagine, ceteris paribus, how better American could be.
Never was and never could have been and fuck you for thinking otherwise you hicknorant guppy of a wannabe vicarious flash-in-the-pan yodel...
Or be grateful, and spread the joy!
And since I forgot to mention earlier, what a fine area to read, think, embarrass myself in sundry, expounded manners at times, and voicing, like Americans do, for the better.

I think this is a superb observation, as I've seen the same thing personally, repeated hundreds of times among "liberal" friends and "elite wannabes."
They usually run their personal affairs and career paths in a responsible and structured fashion, and manage their finances well. They also betray, in intimate company, many of the "prejudices" they usually accuse the "unenlightened" of. None of this personal experience and practicality of theirs translates into how they vote or what they support for public life and governance. None of it. I know someone who read Ayn Rand assiduously, yet voted for Obama. Go figure.

Hard to tell, I flashed all of them from rovvleer except the green theme and I think grey theme. I do know that it withstood reflashing 3.81 full along with a couple of others. It did not change back until I nvflashed my original backup. I am assuming it had to be one of them because I have not flashed anything outside of rovvleer. On a different note I noticed you listed GPS fix. Does that mean we know it's a problem, because I have a lot of trouble locking on.
