Don't believe this title articles

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, October 30, 2014,

20h30 UTC; THURSDAY, 30 OCTOBER 2014: First off, I need to apologise for the delay in actually getting this posted; an earlier attempt was thwarted by some class of technical bug in the host servers. Not to mention having had a late start following lunch buffet and the need to rest it off.

As well, it's likely there may not be a post on the morrow, what with my six-month physical scheduled for mid- to late morning potentially taking up some time as could cross over into the lunch break. Just s...

This surprisingly snarky post title must still be devised

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, October 29, 2014,

17h47 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 29 OCTOBER 2014: First off, warehouse-shopping club Costco deserves kudos for its announcement that all its locations will remain closed on Thanksgiving Day in respect of the day's Sanctity and Sachristy as one for families to get together--even those of their employees and associates--over the traditional turkey and trims. Which, of course, probably isn't sitting well with Walmart, Target, Best Buy and suchlike as are planning openings around 6 pm on Thanksgiving night ...

Inventing the title for this great article

17h47 UTC; TUESDAY, 28 OCTOBER 2014: Firstly, in case any of you needed a reminder of today being National Chocolate Day--consider the lead-off image. And click on same to discern its significance.

Meanwhile, as we await conservative Kulturkriegsmennesch reactions to TLC's cancellation of Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo on word that Mama June has been seen in Weir...

It's all ideological (or so the conservative thinks)

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, October 27, 2014,

17h15 UTC; MONDAY, 27 OCTOBER 2014: As you no doubt have heard by now, the Pew Research Centre has come out with a new study which reveals just how wide the ideological gap is vis-á-vis Teh Innerwebz and news media generally--as in revealing where the conservative ideal is an ideologically-driven, doublethink-enriched sort of media and the liberal such one based on facts and objectivity, empirically-enriched even.

And that conservatives will want to stop at nothing when it comes to advancing ...

Juche in relation to Reddingsdaad

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, October 25, 2014,

20h21 UTC; SATURDAY, 25 OCTOBER 2014: First off, Your Correspondent feels it best to apologise at this time for starting off this post a little later than usual; Winona State University's Homecoming parade, followed by lunch buffet at the local Pizza Hut ("just down the street" from my place, so to speak), followed by a nap just to get over the tired, lethargic feeling ensuing, explains all.

In any event, doesn't it seem as if RepubliKKKan articles of faith
as hold that the State has no place ...

And good riddance, Honey Boo-Boo

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, October 24, 2014,

17h26 UTC; FRIDAY, 24 OCTOBER 2014: In case you've yet to hear the news by now: TLC, in response to a report at about the mother of reality-show star (not to mention Hero and Role-Model to "REAL AmeriKKKans" from especially the dregs of Poor Whiteism) Honey Boo-Boo consorting with a Known and Notorious Sex Offender, has cancelled the next series of Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo out of an abundance of concern and caution.

This notwithstanding a whole series of episodes already having been pr...

So how exactly do gays become "terrorists"?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, October 23, 2014,

17h57 UTC; THURSDAY, 23 OCTOBER 2014: By now, you may or may not have heard the claim by Pat "700 Club" Robertson that Teh Gay are, and should be considered as, terrorists Endangering Our National and Sovereign Identity as Thy Dear and Lovely Land in the same league as misguided Islamist such.

What Meneer Robertson doesn't consider is that there are "Bible-Believing Christians" whose ideology and articles of faith are as misguided as such Islamists behind the so-called "Islamic State" movement...

Of lone wolves and wino crews

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, October 22, 2014,

17h34 UTC; TUESDAY, 22 OCTOBER 2014: As I start off this blog post today, the Big Story of the Hour happens to be some Unfortunate Events in the general vicinity of Parliament Hill in the Canadian capital city of Ottawa, forcing a lockdown of Parliament. But how do we know such isn't really some class of a "false flag" attack cooked up sub rosa by the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper (Conservative) to seize power by back-door means and suspend free elections indefinite...

Is the "people-centred economic freedom" really feasable?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, October 21, 2014,

18h UTC; TUESDAY, 21 OCTOBER 2014: To the minds of certain ideologues in the "Tea Party" and "Christian Patriot" (pseudo)movements, and the prolefeeders as enable them in the aid-and-comfort arena, ons-styl ekonomesie vryheid needs to be seen as one with Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations, Endowed Solely by the Goodness of His Grace and Favour.

Even more so: Said ekonomesie vryheid needs to be mensgesenterde (Afrikaans; "people-centred") for such to be all the ...

How SeaWorld perverts Nature for the sake of Science

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, October 20, 2014,

17h45 UTC; MONDAY, 20 OCTOBER 2014: Hopefully, readers, you've taken my absence from Teh Blogospheerez last week out of respect for my mother's passing (the funeral for her being Friday last) stoically and patiently, just as Your Correspondent is taking the loss of a dear and cherished part of my life. And is managing not to go all too insane in the process, hoping to use Teh Blogospheerez as an agent of healing. In any case, here he returns to business:

So much for the notion SeaWorld seems t...

You can never come home again--even for a funeral

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Sunday, October 19, 2014,

17h46 UTC; SUNDAY, 19 OCTOBER 2014: I acknowledge, in opening this post off, that the title was inspired by Thomas Wolfe--but I feel it worth noting that, in reflecting upon a funeral for a loved one so dear and close such as my mother (as died a week ago this evening at 93 years of age from internal injuries and complications of kidney failure), it seems that you can't come home again. Especially when you consider that change is inevitable, and that even people change.

Not to mention the weat...

There will be an interval

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, October 13, 2014,

14h34 UTC; MONDAY, 13 OCTOBER 2014: The rationale explaining the titling of this post, essentially superseding what I had planned to post today, being rather obvious: The news received last evening by way of a close brother of mine that my mother had died at 93 years of age, following at least two months of rather difficult health culminating in a bad fall at her nursing-home in Caledonia, MN last week which, though causing no serious injury, left her in hospital for several days.

Returning to...

In a whimsically Hanna-Barbera state of mind

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, October 11, 2014,

17h19 UTC; SATURDAY, 11 OCTOBER 2014: Last Saturday saw something of a milestone in American television history as was probably not one of the better such to consider: Such was the first time in the 60 years that the American free-to-air (as opposed to cable or satellite) networks did not air cartoons during their Saturday-morning programme. Which, come to think of it, shouldn't be something to shed tears over; rather, such may want to be a sign to recall the memories of the byproducts of esp...

Is a Volkskongres on "cultural identity and heritage" really THAT necessary?!

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, October 10, 2014,

18h05 UTC; FRIDAY, 10 OCTOBER 2014: In seeking to reclaim an all-the-more-slipping Luscious Glory of "wholehearted popular support" among its core of the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" as tends, for the most part, to dominance by and among the Moronic Underworld, you can just imagine those who see themselves as "cultural conservatives" so hard-wired in their True Belief in a "sacred" Kultuurkryg they insist is essential to Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations callin...

So much for conservatives' True Belief in ons styl ekonomesie vryheid

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, October 9, 2014,

17h58 UTC; THURSDAY, 9 OCTOBER 2014: So much for all the prolefeed conservative Zealotry and True Belief has about the need for ridiculously low gas prices being essential to National Unity and Identity, as in slogans like "Drill, Baby, DRILL!" and "Drill HERE, Drill NOW, Pay LESS!": For some reason, they don't seem to be rejoicing in the news where futures for benchmark crude oil on global markets have fallen below the psychological bar of $90/bbl. over the last fortnight or so ... and at le...

Is "REAL AmeriKKKa" actually ready for these so-called "People's Congresses"?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, October 8, 2014,

17h50 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 8 OCTOBER 2014: Such who see themselves as the Voice and Conscience of the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" (as in "poor whiteism" at its basest and most easily manipulated by crude, oversimplified prolefeed) must have something in common with the Afrikaner Broederbond down South Africa way before apartheid's demise forced its dissolution in 1994:

For one, a desire to be highly secretive on a level with the Freemasons.

For another, excusing this secrecy as being "in the best in...

The dark side of "REAL AmeriKKKa" conservatives don't want you knowing about

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Tuesday, October 7, 2014,

18h21 UTC; TUESDAY, 7 OCTOBER 2014: For all the prolefeed conservative prolefeeders have about the professed "moral purity" of their "REAL AmeriKKKa," populated for the most part, as we all know, by "poor whites" of the worst sort known, and their delusional belief in such being the Last and Only Hope for Reclaiming the Luscious Glory of Thy Dear and Lovely Land as a Christian Nation, there's a dark side to this "REAL AmeriKKka" they don't want you knowing about, and will take great pains to ...

Materia Homeopathica Medica in relation to Ebola

19h45 UTC; MONDAY, 6 OCTOBER 2014: Such among the rather incredible media as caters to so-called "REAL AmeriKKKans" in their Luscious Glory of poverty, fecundity and ignorance of the highest order, wallowing as it doth in a somewhat toxic mix of sensationalism and prolefeed based on an insistence that "winning of hearts and minds" through ideology trumps facts and accuracy, in seeking to milk the presence of the Ebola virus in Thy Dear and Lovely Land (especially where racist angles can be ex...

Does AmeriKKKa actually have any shame (or reasonable facsimilie thereof) anymore?

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, October 4, 2014,

17h55 UTC; SATURDAY, 4 OCTOBER 2014: Make no mistake about it: The critics of Thy Dear and Lovely Land from without, in response to "targeted" bombing attacks against supposed strongholds in Iraq and Syria of the so-called "Islamic State" extreemists in their so-called "Caliphate", are reminding us that our support of campaigns against real or supposed Islamist extreemism, going back to our giving aid and comfort to Usama bin-Laden in his campaigns against Soviet occupation forces in Afghanis...

When American History instruction crosses the line into doublethink

Meanwhile, click the link to get a more realistic bookstore.

18h12 UTC; FRIDAY, 3 OCTOBER 2014: No wonder the forces of conservative Zealotry and True Belief, in their Luscious Glory of promoting a jingoistic National Exceptionalism as a Sanctii Sanctorum rivalled in crudity only by North Korea and its Juche Idea as part of the public-school syllabus, want the American History curriculum to be one tending to hagiography with elements of Soviet-model "political instruction" expected to emphasis...

Some reflections on this blogger's 53rd birthday

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Thursday, October 2, 2014,

18h35 UTC; THURSDAY, 2 OCTOBER 2014: Firstly, may I apologise for the tardiness of this birthday-related post inasmuch as Mein Innkeeper Friend and I went out for lunch at a rather interesting little restaurant here in Winona as saw me enjoying therefor a grilled chicken breast, cheese and bacon sandwich with fries and what appeared to be iced tea, but tasted more like iced coffee for some reason or another. Even with aspertame to sweeten.the whole.

For dessert, a hot fudge sundae; the restaur...

Excedrin Headache No. 5183

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Wednesday, October 1, 2014,

18h16 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 1 OCTOBER 2014: Such is the arrogance of Pat "700 Club" Robertson when he suggests on air that his powers of faith-healing "could put the medical profession out of business" within measurable distance--yeah, right. Didn't his fellow televangel Oral Roberts make similar claims going back to radio days, suggesting he was able to channel God's Healing Powers through the electromagnetic waves of radio and TV broadcasting, especially with regards to Certain Loathsome Diseases...

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.
