16h30 UTC; TUESDAY, 30 APRIL 2013: Reader, I acknowledge it may be a little unusual of Your Correspondent to publish his daily missive a little earlier than usual in this space; however, especially fortunate circumstances make this exercise possible. That, and thinking of this as compensation for the fact that there may not be a post tomorrow because of out-of-town commitments in the interest of what my mental hygenists see as "developing Healthy Social Interactive Skills" or some such.

18h UTC; MONDAY, 29 APRIL 2013: Talk about what the "Tea Party" (pseudo)movement and their drookies, in their Luscious Glory of collective ignorance expected to be regarded as Healthy and Virtuous, would love to see taught in the "educational" (read: indoctrination) syllabus of AmeriKKKan Public Education "recast" along the Christelik Nasionale Onderwys model and stylee prevailing back in apartheid South Africa (preferably in a homeschooling-based stylee).

Consider these among the articles of ...

18h UTC; SUNDAY, 28 APRIL 2013: Research, if anything, is not a strong point with the "Tea Party" (pseudo)movement and their ideological drookies, many of whom must probably be from among the Dregs of Society and worse--unless, however, such was manipulated, perverted even, to serve purely ideological ends rather than being based on empirical study and research.

In other words, it seems "Tea Party" beliefs call for embracing a weird, sick and perverto brand of science not unlike that depicted ...

(For the uninitiated, Blogshares is a simulated shares exchange in weblogs in which you get $5 million in play money to invest, as it were, in member blogs. It'll probably take awhile to get used to it, understand.)

So much for the "Tea Party" mindset of insisting that their agenda and ar...

18h UTC; FRIDAY, 26 APRIL 2013: At least the Minnwissippi IS getting some decent springtime weather for once--if but for this weekend, for the most part; the 7-day forecast for these parts calls for cold, unseasonably rainy weather (as in the low-mid 40's Fahrenheit) returning as May makes her presence known next Wednesday. (And PLEASE spare us the absurd conspiracy theories supposedly discrediting the whole "global warming" business; meanwhile, Snopes.com brings to your attention this 1962 H...

21h UTC; THURSDAY, 25 APRIL 2013:
First off, readers, Appy Polly Loggies for the considerable tardiness in getting this posted; he was rather busy up town this morning doing some shopping at the local cooperative, followed by a buffet pizza luncheon as was enough to prompt a modest little nap after his return home just to get his bearings back in place.

From the "O tempora! O mores!" file comes word of a survey commissioned in part by Liberty Mutual of several thousand teenage drivers across t...

18h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 24 APRIL 2013: Even allowing for the prospect of rain and thunderstorms later on today (and towards the evening, know), it looks as if--finally!!--this bizarre pattern of winter weather extending this late into April may be coming to a timely conclusion: The forecast here in the Minnwissippi calls for milder conditions heading into the weekend, as in maxima approaching 60 degrees Friday and Saturday and maybe 70 on Sunday, with a slight cooldown into the mid-60's as April ...

18h UTC; MONDAY, 22 APRIL 2013: As if today being Earth Day wasn't exactly good enough, along comes master conservative prolefeeder Glenn Beck to push the canard that Saudi-Influenced Jihadism was behind last week's Unfortunate Events at the Boston Marathon, and that there's a willful and deliberate coverup by the Obama Administration of this interconnexion.

And that Beck claims to be in possession of evidence, thanks to his Impeccable Sources, to that effect.

Unfortunately, what Mr. Beck fail...

18h UTC; SUNDAY, 21 APRIL 2013: Last week's Unfortunate Events, and the manner of their exploitation by certain conservative prolefeeders (as in peddling groundless "conspiracy theories" about "false flag" attacks, sub rosa Saudi Jihadism on steroids and amphetamines), should be a reminder to us Real Americans that we need to be especially wary about such prolefeed specimens which seek to explain said Unfortunate Events in crude, oversimplistic even, terms before the official details even eme...

Why always cannot deny evidence of eyes and ears

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, April 19, 2013,


18h UTC; FRIDAY, 19 APRIL 2013: Perhaps the best way to begin this post would be with this passage from Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four (1948), whose relevance will be explained presently:
The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. His heart sank as he thought of the enormous power arrayed against him, the ease with which any Party intellectual would overthrow him in debate, the subtle arguments which he would not be able to under...

BREAKING STORY!!! In case you've yet to hear by now, A Series of Unfortunate Events (Appy Polly Loggies there to Lemony Snickett) has shaken the Boston Marathon this afterlunch at the Copley Square finish line--as in two IED explosives as have killed two and maimed 22 others; this according to official Boston Police Department reports.

In the interim, the rumour mills among especially conservative prolefeeders must be starting to get hot with all manner of lurid speculation about "false flag"...

18h UTC; SUNDAY, 14 APRIL 2013: Immediately after World War I, and for a few years afterward, a popular propaganda trope among the defeated and embittered Germans was that they, as a Nation, were "stabbed in the back" so severely to the point that a once-proud Fatherland was reduced to humiliating defeat. And more often than not, blame therefor (or so the meme went) fell upon the German People and Nation seen as having "no respect for the Motherland" as much as the victorious Allies in giving...

If anything, the message of the image as leads off this post is perhaps a worthwhile reflection of Your Correspondent's mindset and mentality, forged, in large part, by an abusive upbringing in institutional and foster-care settings as were replete with teasing, name-calling, abuse and crude sexual horseplay of the worst sort. Culminating in an ill-advised interstate referral for Vocat...
