I dare you. I double-dog dare you!!

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 1 FEBRUARY 2013: On what's expected to be a rather cold night, the sort of night that W. C. Fields described as "not a fit night for man or beast," here in the Upper Midwestern states of the United States (a Wind Chill Advisory, in fact, being up through tomorrow morning local time), Your Correspondent's just trying to remain sane in his apartment here in Winona. And warm. Even if his habit of late while on Te...

What's holding you back from clicking on the image and seeing what lies behind--

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 31 DECEMBER 2013: Yes, readers, that's where it's at with this blog. Even if it's trying to be a gender-neutral reworking of Viceroy cigarettes' advertising campaign from the late 1950's and early 1960's about "the man who thinks for himself" so preferring.

Can you click on this image and manage not to laugh all the while?

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 30 JANUARY 2013: The old Chinese saying "May you live in Interesting Times" seems to be all the more truer these days here in the Minnwissippi and the Upper Midwest as a mix of sleet, snow, freezing rain, freezing drizzle and straight rain hath fallen since Sunday ... and just this very evening, to make things even more worse, a Winter Storm Warning goes into force for the prospect of heavy, wet snow that, w...

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 29 JANUARY 2013: No wonder the GOP, in its Luscious Glory of seeking renewed attention from especially the poor and National Minorities, can't actually come up with seriously viable ideas to seriously uplift the Lower Classes from their poverty, fecundity and ignorance into self-reliant prosperity consistent with their Zealotry and True Belief in ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskapp...

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 26 JANUARY 2013: If the RepubliKKKan Party expects to, in the words of Louisana Governor Bobby Jindal, "stop being the party of stupid" and "reset the compass of conservatism" if it expects significant and measurable electoral successes in Indecision 2014 and (even more so) Indecision 2016, the first thing they ought to do (IMHO) is to purge its membership rolls of such as are attached to the ve...

00h UTC; FRIDAY, 25 JANUARY 2013: Fans of The Great Minnesota Get-Together (as in the Minnesota State Fair), rejoice and be glad this day: The State Fair's Board of Managers, as supervises the whole 12-day affair ending annually on Labour Day, voted at their annual meeting to ban smorking outright on the State Fairgrounds, save for Designated Smorking Areas, with effect from TGMnGT 2013; previously, smorking was banned only ...

So fearful ignorance disease and dyslexia

00h UTC; THURSDAY, 24 JANUARY 2013: Is it any wonder that conservative prolefeeders have this thing for using outright mind games to take manipulative and devious advantage of the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKan" in his Luscious Glory of poverty, fecundity and ignorance as can be channelled into an overzealously fanatical, jingoistic even, True Patriot Love Thou Dost in Us Command vis-a-vis the Greater "Tea Party" Agenda, and in particular such holding that the only "real" socioeconomic stimulus t...

Is their contempt among lower-class conservatives

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, January 21, 2013,

00h UTC; TUESDAY, 22 JANUARY 2013: Make no mistake, boys and girls: Conservative mindsets towards the Lower Classes must be premeated with doublethink galore, especially that excusing their presumed defence of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe as being one with Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations to the point of assuming an implied interconnexion of concepts.

In particular, their insisting:

Is the "tea party" desire power return?

00h UTC; MONDAY, 21 JANUARY 2013: "Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating?"

Thus did George Orwell imagine O'Brien interrogating Winston Smith in Nineteen Eighty Four as part of the Oceanic regime's use of...

00h UTC; SUNDAY, 20 JANUARY 2013: In the local gazetta the other day, Your Correspondent couldn't help but notice in the "Neighbours" columns thereof where some students at the local Catholic high school were participating in a state high-school "music listening" competition, the which, I understand, involves especially thorough listening and understanding of classical music and its greater context.

Which hath Your Correspondent picturing as a (potentially unlikely) competition which would hav...

00h UTC; SATURDAY, 19 JANUARY 2013: Your Correspondent, having noticed the lead-off image for today's post in the Facebook presence for Moxie, a sui generis among soft drinks peculiar to New England especially, couldn't help but be inspired at the potential for such a Horsemobile (as Moxie called such promotional vehicles in their heyday of the 1920's) being driven around in a YouTube-model video scored to the very strains of the Third Movement of Rossini's "William Tell Overture" (as used in...

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 16 JANUARY 2013: In its desire to (paraphrasing George Orwell here) tear apart existing socioeconomic models and put it back together in new shapes of its own choosing, Your Correspondent has to wonder if the "Tea Party" faction in Congress' ultimate desire throughout is to recast ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe along what turns out being Fascistic models while officially insisting, for prolefeed purposes, that such is "organic," "people-centred," "born out o...

The Zealots and True Believers in the ideal of socioeconomic rescue and recovery encapsulated in the Afrikaans expression 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescues itself"), the rallying-cry of the Afrikaner Economic Movement as begat South Africa's infamous system of apartheid, are certainly disappointed in the decision by the AIG Board of Directors to not join in pending legal action as challenged the...

That's why new Rearden AmeriKKKan Idol Hank 5

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, January 9, 2013,

00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 9 JANUARY 2013: So much for that "Who Is John Galt?" coddswallop popular among the Ayn Randite element as makes up a substantial share of the "Tea Party" (pseudo)movement's rank-and-file support base, unaware of their being used by certain highly-secretive corporate interests: Maybe it was time to ask "Who is Hank Rearden?!" (at least so Your Correspondent thinks).
