15h48 UTC; THURSDAY, 31 MAY 2012: Reader, I do acknowledge the influence of a certain Frank Sinatra number entitled "Cycles" such as I heard on the wireless this morning in inspiring the title and stylee of this post; nonetheless, let's get on with business (as it were):
  • With a third Elmer Gantryite preacher (this time out of Kansas) calling for the State to take a more proactive role in "preempting" the "spread" of homosexuality by citing Scripture, such brings to mind a story...

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 30 MAY 2012: Make no mistake about it: Your Correspondent is PROUD(!!) to be among the people "Tea Party" types and their weird and unwholesome drookies regard as Threats to Our Dear Lovely Nation and Its National and Sovereign Identity, Antient and Peculiar--or so they see it, and in much the same vein that the Afrikaner was expected to regard apartheid South Africa in the day.

As if insisting that the "Non-Producer" element (per Ayn Rand Thought) has "power and influence ...

Thus did Sir Richard Burton (he who translated the Kama Sutra into English, not the actor; just so you know) reply to his wife's noting where Victorian-era prudery was forcing his translations and other works into Private Circulation.

And which could be said to apply equally to such specimens of Zealotry and True Belief who prefer to hold puris...

  • So much for Fox Business' implied interconnexion of Wall Street and Main Street coextant For Mutual Benefit: Isn't the real message from such prolefeed conduits of that ilk to Main Street one rooted in the Afrikaans expression 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescues itself"), and then only through "people-centred" models of Reddingsdaad "born out of the Volk to serve the Volk" according to the disciplines of ekonomesie vryheid...

Get rid of these stupifying bandages!" Which, perhaps, could be said to apply equally to such who depend too heavily upon Fox News Channel, Fox Business and conservative talkback radio for their prolefeed requirements--most ...

18h04 UTC; TUESDAY, 22 MAY 2012: So much for conservative Delusions of Grandeur insisting that cost alone needs to matter when it comes to budget and policy decisions (in other words, insisting that only the cheapest option per se matters): IIBC, official policy in certain scions of government now mandates the exercise of "cost-efficiency" when it comes to policy decisions.

18h14 UTC; MONDAY, 21 MAY 2012: First off, Your Correspondent needs to apologise for the extreem tardiness in getting today's items posted, inasmuch as he had to replace the seat on his bicycle after the two supporting springs broke to the point where such was deemed too dangerous and unsafe to continue thus operating.

Onward, then:
  • Smells like doublethink, and then some: Rep. Paul Ryan's austerity-centric "Path to Prosperity" budget is being thus promoted as "preempting austerity" in future. H...

15h42 UTC; SATURDAY, 12 MAY 2012: Admittedly, Your Correspondent acknowledges the influence of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four for the title of today's return to blogging after a day's enforced lapse following the effects of an eye examination which saw the eyes dilated for a time thanks to "drops" that are necessary to aid in inner-eye examination--howbeit Engrishfied, know.

18h42 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 9 MAY 2012: For those asking about the inspiration of the title for today's post, reader, there's a Yiddish expression which translates as "making the pig's foot kosher," oft used as a Jewish colloquialism for "attempting the impossible"--which itself alludes to the fact that Jews avoid pork for religious reasons.

The which could be said to apply to "Tea Party" (pseudo)movement and GOP articles of faith intertwined vis-a-vis Indecision 2012 as insist tha...
