All the people involved is certainly a good time

No doubt the interconnexion is rather apropos this time.

16h UTC; SATURDAY, 31 AUGUST 2013: Well, Your Correspondent IS back at last.

As in back from his annual (shall we say) pilgrimage to The Great Minnesota Get-Together, otherwise known as the 2013 Minnesota State Fair. Which itself wilted, in some measure, from record-breaking heat as cut into the attendance numbers (and sent nearly 100 fairgoers in toto to hospital for heat-related illn...

You can see here a unique double thought and sarcasm?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, August 23, 2013,

18h UTC; FRIDAY, 23 AUGUST 2013: It's probably just me here (at least for the moment), but you have to consider the likelihood of doublethink inherent when, on the one hand, you have quite the base of "wholehearted popular support" for denationalising State Social Security among the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKan" working-classes (as in blue-collar, Joe Sixpack specimens of "poor whiteism") ... yet, on the other hand, this same (presumed) base of support therefor doesn't have any knowledge on the...

Why exploit sound fear and uncertainty, advertising tricks

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, August 22, 2013,

18h UTC; THURSDAY, 22 AUGUST 2013: What do "work-from-home" scams, "Five Reports" chain letters, "multi-level marketing" Ponzi games and disreputable precious metals dealers have in common?

Give up?

All have as a common thread their past use of fear, loathing and paranoia about the prospect of imminent and ongoing socioeconomic uncertainty and collapse as selling tactics therefor, targeting, for the most part, the weak-minded, the poor and the socioeconomically challenged--especially so such la...

Minnesota State Fair "Birdies" (with Appy Polly Loggies to Clellan Card)

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, August 21, 2013,

18h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 21 AUGUST 2013: With today being "Day 0," as it were, for the Minnesota State Fair (as officially opens tomorrow, know), perhaps Your Correspondent thought it would be interesting to set people in the mood therefor by paying homage to Clellan Card (1901-1966), a much-loved Twin Cities radio and television host in his day (in particular for his long-running and hugely-popular after-school WCCO-TV childrens' show Axel and His Tree House, as aired from 1954 until just before ...

What exact price is the property of financial freedom in AmeriKKKa?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, August 20, 2013,

18h UTC; TUESDAY, 20 AUGUST 2013: Recently, Media Matters for America came out with a rather blistering report taking issue with Fox News Channel's Saturday-morning "financial" and "economic" news block packaged under the banner of "The Cost of Freedom," which seems to imply that there is some class of an implied mutual interconnexion vis-a-vis Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations and ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe, the which is supposedly seen as...

Many of the concepts of voluntary private sector employment

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, August 19, 2013,

20h UTC; MONDAY, 19 AUGUST 2013: With the recent revelation that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (Tea Party-influenced GOP) is but 28% of the way towards his Luscious Glory of 250,000 private-sector jobs he wants to see created during his current gubenetorial tenure--not to mention a continued persistence in the Grand Delusion as expects the private sector to create REAL jobs spontaneously and out of the collective goodness of their hearts "if they only made the effort to create jobs solely o...

In alley blue canary's yellow lightswitch will be shown

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, August 17, 2013,

15h UTC; SATURDAY, 17 AUGUST 2013: Is it just me, or does it seem possible that, thanks to the magic of CGI animation being integratable into live action, the face of Mr. Veritably Clean (yes, that's his full name and stylee) in recent TV adverts for Mr. Clean looks like Yul Brenner as he appeared in The King and I on both Broadway and in the cinema?

With a Federal court judge ruling that the NYPD's "stop-and-frisk" device as a "preemptive" tactic tended to target blacks and Hispanics all too ...

What's the Pearl of Great Price, the Missouri State Fair?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, August 16, 2013,

Reader, there IS Hidden Significance to this lead-off image.
Click on same to see for yourself.

18h UTC; FRIDAY, 16 AUGUST 2013: No doubt about it: This year's Missouri State Fair, as closes this Sunday for another year, has already been a rather star-crossed affair thanks to last Saturday evening's rodeo becoming a rather crude exercise in prolefeed exploiting the latent racism and jingoism in an audience of mostly poor, ignorant and easily-manipulate specimens of what certain conservative pro...

When exactly is considered "Christian" what "economic freedom"?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, August 15, 2013,

18h UTC; THURSDAY, 15 AUGUST 2013: Given the lateness of Tuesday's posting to this rather snarky and at once esoteric blog, Your Correspondent would like to apologise at this time for not posting content yesterday, as if compensating for the foregoing. In any case, he craves your lowly indulgence and regrets inconvenience suffered in the bargain.

Meanwhile, with certain Elmer Gantry types pushing the trope du jour (as it were) insisting that the Good Christian cannot support in good conscience...

Do you just find this?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, August 13, 2013,

22h UTC; TUESDAY, 13 AUGUST 2013: Appy Polly Loggies, readers, for the delay in getting this posted today; out of a desire for some change from the mundane routine, Your Correspondent elected to, following some shopping today and the pizza buffet at Sammy's here in Winona, kill the afternoon watching the fresh-released Disney animated feature Planes for no reason whatsoever. Which managed to be a worthwhile time-killer, and rather impressive, notwithstanding some of the comments on the movie'...

Conservatives and "White Culture", see here!

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, August 12, 2013,

Click the picture above of the whole sordid story.

18h UTC; MONDAY, 12 AUGUST 2013: No wonder there are certain specimens of conservative Zealotry and True Belief who have this delusional idea about what they call "White Culture" being entitled to "natural dominance as of right" ... and same is somehow supposedly "under clear and present threat and attack" by the forces of multiculturalism and diversity supposedly "under the New World Order's nefarious and sinister control and influence," with...

These morons and idiots reviews

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, August 10, 2013,

16h UTC; SATURDAY, 10 AUGUST 2013: "Those who do not recall the past are condemned to repeat it," quoth Santayana ... and perhaps the same is an apt explanation of the excesses of depravity, sensationalism, even xenophobic jingoism common to conservative prolefeeders of late. Especially the sort as is "written so you can understand it," to borrow the old saying of Popular Mechanics magazine--using, for the most part, simple, easily-understood words and phrases as are mindful of the Greater Co...

Free classified chess related United States economy

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, August 9, 2013,

18h UTC; FRIDAY, 9 AUGUST 2013: There seems to be this delusional notion in certain weird and unwholesome circles otherwise known as the "Tea Party" (pseudo)movement insisting on the supremacy of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe as essential to Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations ... for one, Charles Koch of the so-called "Citizens for a Sound Economy" (f/k/a "AmeriKKKans for Prosperity"), who's starting to push prolefeed insisting that a...

The radio thinks about it?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, August 8, 2013,

With the GOP now acknowledging where they want to distance themselves all the more ideologically from the so-called "Tea Party" element, especially considering the latter's crossing the line into potentially dangerous territory ideologically, it will be interesting to see if we may be seeing a scenario not unlike the split in the Democratic Party in 1948 after its platform embraced a civil rights agenda, leading as it did to the emergence of the States' Right...

Top 10 electric thrill secrets

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, August 7, 2013,

18h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 7 AUGUST 2013: Could the message implied in the lead-off image be an expression of the letter, if not so much the spirit, of this somewhat snarky blog and the comments therein made, especially such as target the Zealots and True Believers in a warped, perverto, jingoistic even, delusion of conservatism as insists on "prosperity through austerity" in the name of Thy Dear and Lovely Nation?

Meanwhile, talk about the company you keep when it comes to conservative prolefeeders ...

Consider the doublethink (and then some)

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, August 6, 2013,

18h UTC; TUESDAY, 6 AUGUST 2013: Anyone familiar with George Owell's literary masterpiece of police-state dystopics, Nineteen Eighty Four by title, will no doubt be acquainted with the Party's use and practice of doublethink (defined as "the ability to hold, and at once accept as correct, two simultaneous and conflicting arguments") as a means of maintaining Party discipline and orthodoxy among the faithful (all the while expecting such classified as "proletariat", or "prole" for short, to be...

So what exactly is the appeal of "co-existence and co-prosperity"?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, August 5, 2013,

18h UTC; MONDAY, 5 AUGUST 2013: Make no mistake about it: The same specimens of right-wing Zealotry and True Belief who see the destruction of our "morally-superior" socioeconomic paradigm by Any Means Necessary to "save" such must certainly be the same who (though not publicly for the moment) would love to push the trope of "free trade is the new foreign aid."

Preferably when packaged under such "feel-good" delusions as "Co-Prosperity," which fails to consider where the likely inspiration the...

The sun is to lose her?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, August 2, 2013,

18h UTC; FRIDAY, 2 AUGUST 2013: As if Fox News Channel's "alerts" wanting in serious news relevance or importance wasn't awful enough to give cable news a bad name and repute, Your Correspondent understands where WDRB, the Fox "FreeVee" (as it were) affiliate in Louisville, has started to attract viewers to its evening news bulletins by announcing where it's dispensed with the whole notion of "breaking news," as if insisting that such was being misused by competitors to the point of misleadin...

1, Can be a hero for one day?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, August 1, 2013,

18h UTC; THURSDAY, 1 AUGUST 2013: With today being the start of the Wisconsin State Fair, tomorrow that of the Indiana State Fair and Monday being the rather obliquely-named Civic Holiday in portions of Canada, it ought also be worth noting that today week begins state fairs in Illinois, Iowa and Missouri ... a week after that, the Canadian National Exhibition, eh (a/k/a "The CNE" or "The Ex") up Toronto way ... and yet another week after, the Minnesota State Fair, something of an annual ritu...

Meet Your Correspondent:

Iludium Phosdex Dyslexic. Unemployable because of past psychosexual abuse; hence, dependent upon State charity (and trying to supplement it through the Online Mall on this site). One of The People Our Parents Warned Us About who DO happen to have opinions. Yet nonetheless opinionate, as carried out in this rather esoterically-inclined blog, this New Explosion of Pedigreed Bull on Teh Innerwebz.
