Excedrin Headache No. 5156

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, August 20, 2014,

I'll only say at this time that the link is a surprise.

17h57 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 20 AUGUST 2014: In this the last post before I take a short hiatus preparatory to my annual presence at the Minnesota State Fair next week, Your Correspondent feels it best to bring up for discussion the following worthwhile, yet underappreciated, topics made even more so because of the Ongoing Unfortunate Events in a certain St. Louis suburb whose name is already reeking of the hackneyed, or close to it:
  • With certain...

On the other hand, how about shopping online
as helps worthy causes in the bargain?
(Discover more at the link.)

18h07 UTC; TUESDAY, 19 AUGUST 2014: Even with just-released Department of Agriculture estimates suggesting that it will cost the average American family some $230,000 to feed and care for an American child from birth to 18 years of age, the Christian Right still has this notion that the State should have no place to help things along; in other words, after the Afrikaans, 'n Volk red h...

In this instance, cell phones to suit such tastes as multiple SIM card slots,

19h35 UTC; MONDAY, 18 AUGUST 2014: The very idea that certain specimens of conservative Zealotry and True Belief have in ekonomesie vryheid van ons styl, in ons tyd, vir all tyd as one with National Unity and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations may not be good enough for the more blatant such: They h...

This particular link is directed at restauranteurs in particular.

17h32 UTC; SATURDAY, 16 AUGUST 2014:
It looks as if the first example of Aunt Sally has been deployed in Indecision 2016 against a likely RepubliKKKan Presidential candidate--in this instance, Texas Governor Rick Perry's being charged by a Grand Jury in Austin with Abuse of Power and Coercion of a Civil Servant, both misdemeanor offences as will still allow him to remain in office pending further court action--and, let it be hop...

Excedrin Headache No. 5152

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, August 15, 2014,
As in the amazing closeout values to be found at this link. for one.

17h27 UTC; FRIDAY, 15 AUGUST 2014: No wonder conservatives (particularly such from the "Tea Party" and "Christian Patriot" ideological streams) are as delusional as they come in their insistence on ons styl ekonomesie vryheid being the Last and Only Hope for Saving the Lower Classes (especially the Chronically- and Habitually-Dependent Upon the State) from Themselves--so long as such was presented as a Mission from God founde...

As in Liking the Facebook page for this very esoterically-leaning blog.
Just click on the link to do so (so long as you're in Facebook first off).

19h46 UTC; THURSDAY, 14 AUGUST 2014: Is it asking too much to suggest that only ons styl ekonomesie vryheid is best equipped to save the Lower Classes from themselves by virtue of such being "people-centred"--not to mention such being presented (preferably through trick and deception) in the context of a Divinely-Inspired Campaign of Reddingsdaad in ...

And speaking of universal remotes, check this link out.

18h10 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 13 AUGUST 2014: No wonder there are such who would just love to exploit mass outpourings of grief and loss over deceased celebrities to cast the target of the mourning into an odious or contemptible light, especially absent clear details as to the cause of death.

Case in point: These remarks from The Oxycontin Boar "himself" on yesterday's broadcast of his programme vis-a-vis the death by self-slaughter of comedian Ro...

This is NOT the "REAL AmeriKKKa" conservative prolefeeders love

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, August 12, 2014,
It never guess all the links. Click and see.

17h52 UTC; TUESDAY, 12 AUGUST 2014: No wonder conservative prolefeeders have delusions of grandeur when it comes to their paradiso of poverty, fecundity and ignorance they call "REAL AmeriKKka", especially when it comes to the potential of using the trope as a "wag-the-dog" distractive to divert the attention of a largely "poor white" audience from their shortcomings and failings made all the more so by conservative policies and articles of faith pr...

Why "Christian Economic Freedom" is none of these

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, August 11, 2014,

It might not hurt to click on the link, dear reader ...

22h39 UTC; MONDAY, 11 AUGUST 2014: Such is the controlled reality (alias doublethink) of the Christian Right as insists that only a "people-centred" ideal of ons styl ekonomesie vryheid can be considered the true socioeconomic ideal for the "REAL AmeriKKKan," alias the "New Christian Man", Christian Patriots want created as will Reclaim Thy Dear and Lovely Land to His Luscious Glory and Service, in the process calling from abeyance the ti...

The Imminent Curse of Meneer O

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, August 9, 2014,

16h34 UTC; SATURDAY, 9 AUGUST 2014: If there's something which the Zealots and True Believers in that conservative article of faith holding that free trade with developing countries is the "new wave" in American foreign development aid (particularly the sort packaged as the "Ronald Reagan Free Trade Zone" in its Luscious Glory of challenging Chinese investment and development aid), may I be first to bring you the following caveat as needs to be given due regard and consideration (and serious ...

Why employing the disabled is unlikely to be all the easier

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, August 8, 2014,

Or, for that matter, click on the link to see what lies beyond.

17h32 UTC; FRIDAY, 8 AUGUST 2014: A couple of years back, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in a case entitled Olmsted v. C. J. that the sheltered-workshop system in its traditional form of training disabled persons for employment and the jobs market was a form of unlawful discrimmination for the purposes and intents of the Americans with Disabilities Act 1990, which is theoretically designed to open further doors to op...

Would sending the poor to Johannesburg really help them that much?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, August 7, 2014,
"If you're out of luck, or out of work,
We could send you to Johannesburg"

--from "Oliver's Army" by Adam and the Ants

17h47 UTC; THURSDAY, 8 AUGUST 2014:
Such must be the mindset and thinking of Pastor John Hagee in his Luscious Glory of "Christian" contempt for the poor and "habitually government-dependent" by insisting that such are to blame for Thy Dear and Lovely Land "unravelling," and suggesting that the poor find work or else starve. Which is basically on a par with Victorian/Edwardian B...

18h15 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 6 AUGUST 2014: If you gave any money to the "support our troops" "charity" "Move AmeriKKKa Forward" in the belief that you were Supporting Our Esteemed and Divinely-Revered Troops by buying a care package therefor therefrom, you may want to start regretting making such a donation in the first place. Especially as it's now emerging that "Move AmeriKKka Forward" had no real intention to se...

Because of that deep love VII

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, August 5, 2014,

18h13 UTC; TUESDAY, 5 AUGUST 2014: For a young boy coming into his flowering, being asked by his parents to be out of the house during the day (even if it's a summer beach house) just so they could be alone and on their own without his "needlessly being in the way" (so the excuse would have it) can be asking too much. Especially at such a crucial time.

But when he encounters some mermaids in the vicinity, taking advantage of what's essentially parental spite excused as "love and concern" for t...

Deflating conservative delusions of "leveraging word power"

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, August 4, 2014,

See what I mean at this link--if you dare.

17h47 UTC; MONDAY, 4 AUGUST 2014: As the recent collapse of the latest Noble Conservative Experiment in Winning Over Hearts and Minds through online social media, otherwise known as ReaganBook, has demonstrated, conservative delusions of grandeur about a desire to leverage "word power" towards such otherwise lofty aims can quickly risk exploding into the faces of such Zealots and True Believers in the ideal.

Especially considering where such "leverage"...

And you still expect ecomonic recovery to be "born out of the Volk," etc.?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, August 2, 2014,
Have I withhheld the suspense from you long enow
vis-a-vis what lies at this link>

17h30 UTC; SATURDAY, 2 AUGUST 2014: No wonder prevailing conservative articles of faith, especially under the domineering influence of "Tea Party" and "Christian Patriot" elements breathing down conservatism's neck (so to speak) of late, persist in insisting that:
  • the State has no role in promoting socioeconomic recovery, even if the desire is one of creating jobs, as such is a Perversion of Nature contrary to the...

Just how exactly are the "government-dependent" expected to help themselves by themselves alone?

On the other hand, at least it's really bad
reshipments to catch. Find out more at this link!

18h17 UTC; FRIDAY, 1 AUGUST 2014: For those of you as are regulars in Facebook, I suppose you were frustrated there for awhile earlier when access was intermittent or otherwise unavailable due to some class of a server issue on their end. For that, Facebook sends out an Appy Polly Loggy.

Now to business, so to speak: Doesn't it sound like doublethink for certain specimens of conservative Zealotry and Tr...

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.
