So much for "economic freedom" being a Pearl of Great Price

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, May 31, 2014,
Related links, but hopefully, this image would like to discuss.

18h47 UTC; SATURDAY, 31 MAY 2014:
Make no mistake, boys and girls: "Tea Party", "9/12" and "Christian Patriot" types, and their ideological fellow-travellers, would love nothing better than to see ekonomesie vryheid van ons styl as something of a "Pearl of Great Price" essential to AmeriKKKan National Unity and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations by His Grace and Favour Upon Thy Dear and Lovely Land, Rightful Heir a...

So much for the "Good Christian" being above weakness and error

On the other hand, likely arguments to at least five links

in an ideal world would.

17h54 UTC; FRIDAY, 30 MAY 2014:
You may or may not have heard on the news where studies suggest that, by 2041 at the earliest, only some 40% of the world's population is likely to hold belief in one faith system or another--and that we can blame the Extreem Christian Right for only making things worse by their vitriolic excesses of Zealotry and True Belief most ...

Proof that homophobes have no monopoly on Divine Wrath and Judgment paranoia

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, May 29, 2014,
Click the hands and feet, the last image.

19h12 UTC; THURSDAY, 29 MAY 2014:
As if the notoriety of Westboro Baptist Church's Divinely-Sanctioned (or so they thought) Homophobic Protests wasn't awful enow, Your Correspondent has to wonder if Divine Wrath and Judgment (howbeit of a different kind) was at play in Watford City, ND on Memorial Day (as last Monday, know) when a tornado hit into a makeship "man camp" of RV trailers housing, for the nonce, men seeking work in the nearby Bakken/Three F...

Can "REAL AmeriKKKa" save itself from itself?

Images of the E-tailer links between the interconnected
feel called by his genius.

18h46 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 28 MAY 2014:
Doublethink, which essentially requires exercising the grossly illogical and absurd to the point of accepting as truth the absurdity, must seem to be a Holy of Holies when it comes to conservative designs on "winning over hearts and minds" among especially the easily-influenced masses who may be unaware of the real intent behind the message being presented.

And to Your Correspond...

Who says chivalry is as underrated as it is?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, May 27, 2014,

On the other hand, can this image and link a bit easier.

18h45 UTC; TUESDAY, 27 MAY 2014:
Among the definitions of "chivalry" in the dictionary is "the sum of the ideal qualities of a knight, among them courtesy, generosity, valor and dexterity in arms."

I bring this up, reader, because on Sunday evening, on the return leg of a bike ride Your Correspondent usually takes when weather allows from his apartment to the Kwik Trip store near Minnesota City (as takes him along Sixth Street, "main drag...

From this perspective, surprise of the new browser window.

00h20 UTC; TUESDAY, 27 MAY 2014:
I'm not sure how many of you are regular listeners to Garrison Keillor's weekly public-radio programme A Prairie Home Companion, which is modelled on the variety programmes back in radio's glory days (and which Mr. Keillor, the show's host, recalls growing up with quite a bit) ... but one particular routine as apepars from time to time, the detective-series spoof "Guy Noir, Private Eye", can easily get...

This ain't no way to honour our troops by any means

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, May 23, 2014,

20h01 UTC; FRIDAY, 23 MAY 2014: As America Dear and Lovely prepares to honour our fallen troops this Monday on Memorial Day, boys and girls, a simmering scandal about mismanagement of Veterans' Administration health-care facilities as serve the sick and wounded such seeks to undermine the dignity and solemnity thereof. Especially when you consider that the troops most likely to be afflicted are those who served in the misguided misadventures in Iraq and Afghanistan which President Bush the Yo...

Why your (so-called) "economic freedom" sucks

Like you do you need to travel abroad still on your mobile phone?
(Change), before the best links.

22h27 UTC; THURSDAY, 22 MAY 2014: Reader, make no mistake about it: There are certain specimens of hyper-conservative Zealotry and True Belief in their convoluted delusion that ekonomesie vryheid van ons styl is essential to AmeriKKKan National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations Solely by the Grace and Favour of God that will stop at nothing to use Any Means Necessary...

19h59 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 21 MAY 2014: No doubt about it: There are certainly parents of a certain class who just can't wait for the summer break from school to commence in dead earnest within measurable distance--and for good reason: To find cheap and cheerful excuses by which they can ask the kids to please leave the house after breakfast, and not return until around the supper hour....

So much for the Zealotry and True Belief held dear by the organisers of Friday's Kampfruf against the United States Government, promoted under the name and stylee of "Operation AmeriKKKan Spring," and the Luscious Glory they have for "reclaiming Constitutional law" in the United States (which, to Your Correspondent, calls to mind apartheid South Africa) .....

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).
