Because some things just needed to be commented on

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, December 31, 2014,

18h37 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 31 DECEMBER 2014: Just when you thought you wanted a nice, end-of-year break to reassess your options in blogging, especially considering where you've also launched another blog reflecting mein own Hanna-Barbera side of the mind as is seeing its share of popularity, along cometh a few worthwhile items of Teapottery galore (as Mein Innkeeper Friend likes referring to the "Tea Party" and suchlike elements weird and unwholesome) as deserve come commenting upon in the first ...

So the jobs creation

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, December 17, 2014,

18h30 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 17 DECEMBER 2014: Given the "pay-to-play" mentalities which "Tea Party"-deluded governors in the several states have when it comes to jobs creation (thereby raising questions in and of themselves about possible corruption, illicit slush funds, "Rice Pudding Time" and other illegal or questionable tactics expected to be excused as being For God and Country), Your Correspondent would have to be the first to wonder whether these same governors' "jobs creation" approach towa...

So the Reddingsdaad

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, December 16, 2014,

17h14 UTC; TUESDAY, 16 DECEMBER 2014: Before proceeding with today's post, reader, Your Correspondent needs to apologise at this time for being unable to post yesterday in this accustomed space; he got online somewhat later than usual, what with his getting some aluminum cans from the motel he does for sold to recyclers and getting some grocery shopping out of the way subsequent. In short, he was too distracted to get a more normal post posted to this accustomed space in Teh Blogospheerez.

So the Luscious Glory

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, December 13, 2014,

17h UTC; SATURDAY, 13 DECEMBER 2014: With the "Tea Party"-deluded 114th Congress likely to advance by stealth its articles of faith for "reinventing government" as per the model of the State Corporate and Incorporate, vigilance of us Real Americans is all the more essential and the more important.

Especially because of the clear and present danger for such corporatisation likely to include "saving Social Security" based on a "people-centred" model.

"People-centred," yes--in theory.

In actual pra...

As "REAL AmeriKKKa" awaits its socioeconomic meltdown

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, December 12, 2014,

18h38 UTC; FRIDAY, 12 DECEMBER 2014: It appears that this week's Supreme Court ruling which held that employees' going through security screenings does not qualify as paid time may have unwittingly opened a vacuum which may throw the legality, the Constitutionality even, of so-called "right-to-work" laws into serious disarray. As explaineth:
[Associate Justice] Clarence Thomas just put into a court decision that workplace issues involving compensated time must be handled in n...

Who's the REAL "Culture Warrior" here?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, December 11, 2014,

21h55 UTC; THURSDAY, 11 DECEMBER 2014: First off, an Appy Polly Loggy is in order for the delay in getting this posted, what with some rather personal business needing to be taken care of, followed by the lunch buffet at Pizza Hut and a nap to ease it all down, hence explaining the lateness I had in  getting online.

To business, then: Setting aside the arguments of certain paleoconservative prolefeeders who love to play the God and Country card (not to mention AmeriKKKan National Exceptionalis...

What price torture in the State's Name and Majesty?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, December 10, 2014,

19h10 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 10 DECEMBER 2014: First, reader, the reason Your Correspondent was unable to offer some content yesterday in this accustomed space was because of the rather limited time available to him ahead of yesterday's appearence of Canadian Pacific Railway's Holiday Train here in Winona; its arrival being somewhat late because of a broken-down freight such preceding same didn't faze too many in the crowd, who were certainly entertained and enlightened.

He tenders his apologies to s...

What "socioeconomic collapse," exactly?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, December 8, 2014,

19h36 UTC; MONDAY, 8 DECEMBER 2014: So much for the scaremongering propaganda being spread in certain weird, unwholesome and misguided circles attracting especially the Moronic Underworld which hath it that the ongoing decline in crude-oil and gasoline prices risks posing Clear and Present Economic Harm and Danger, not to mention the loss of Innocent American Lives within due and measurable distance:
  • Where are the business and factory closings?
  • Where are the wholesale layoffs?
  • Where are the sudd...

When groupthink isn't

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Sunday, December 7, 2014,

16h14 UTC; SUNDAY, 7 DECEMBER 2014: Now pray tell me thus:

Just exactly WHERE is it written that subordinating the Self for a Greater Collective Good requires a fanatically-depraved, hard-wired even, embrace of the paleoconservative groupthink promoted by its prolefeed enablers of late?

A groupthink which requires a blind, fanatically-unswerving devotion to its agenda and articles of faith which risks crossing the line into serious insanity over time?

A groupthink whose articles of faith are enc...

"Ye reap what ye sow"--and then some

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, December 6, 2014,

19h30 UTC; SATURDAY, 6 DECEMBER 2014: No doubt about it: Kirk Cameron's exercise in paleo-Christian cinematic prolefeed, otherwise known as Saving Christmas, was perhaps DESERVING of the wooden spoon as the Single Worst Movie Ever per the Internet Movie Database's just-launced 100 Worst Movies of All Time List ... as well as a 0% rating at, a somewhat snarky film-review analysis website, notwithstanding Cameron's attempt to rig the site and give Saving Christmas a more favo...

Since when did Orthodoxy become one with Loyalty?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, December 5, 2014,

19h23 UTC; FRIDAY, 5 DECEMBER 2014: Once again, it's become necessary for Your Correspondent to resort to musical parody, satire even, to make points about controversial or infamous issues rather than the more dry essay-type such otherwise dominant in this part of Teh Blogospheerez, as he thinks song parody is warranted in the circumstances to hand.

(tune: "How Did I Ever Get So Lucky?"
per the Cattanooga Cats, vintage 1969)

Who says we real people can't be trusted?
Who said we must be orthodox

Return of the Quasi-Psychotic Blogger

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, December 4, 2014,

Posted in response to recent Unfortunate Events, details of which
Your Correspondent would rather not bore you with inasmuch as
you're probably aware of them from the news.

18h50 UTC; THURSDAY, 4 DECEMBER 2014: Well, Your Correspondent is glad to be back.

Especially given where a colonoscopy just yesterday revealed a non-cancerous tumour which was thereby removed. And the preparations beforehand he managed to get through, especially having to take a rather weird-tasting compound to aid in cleanin...

The RepubliKKKan Party's Decline and Fall may have only begun

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, December 1, 2014,

19h12 UTC; MONDAY, 1 DECEMBER 2014: As a RepubliKKKan-dominant and -ascendent Congress, elected largely through trick, fraud, deceit and (perhaps) unlawful subliminal techniques reeking of the $cientologist model prepares to convene early next year, prepare to see the decline and meltdown into sheer and utter ruin unto wrack and ruin as the prevailing fac...

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.
