18h18 UTC; TUESDAY, 30 SEPTEMBER 2014: Your Correspondent thinks it best to lead off with some breaking news fans of televised sport are certainly rejoicing over--as in the Federal Communications Commission's unanimous (5-0, to be exact) decision to repeal ourtright the 39-year-old Sports Blackout Rule which--
  • required home-market broadcasters for certain sports teams (especially in Major League Baseball and the National Football League) to black out game broadcasts if the game is not sold ou...

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Monday, September 29, 2014,

17h42 UTC; MONDAY, 29 SEPTEMBER 2014: First off, Your Correspondent feels it best to extend his solidarities and sympathies with such in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the so-called "People's Republic of China" as are valiantly protesting for the cause of representative democracy and responsible government in the face of Beijing's objections and the insistence that the masses are somehow "incapable" of making wise or sound decisions for themselves.

Sounds like the AmeriKKKan "T...

Appy Polly Loggies for the intrusion of this post

14h10 UTC; SUNDAY, 28 SEPTEMBER 2014: First: Please to pay no heed, reader, for the snarky image of comics-page feline Garfield leading off this post; such is designed solely to attract your attention.

To business, then: For some while now, Your Correspondent hath this habit of not posting to this very blog on Sundays, in the belief that even bloggers deserve some rest every now and then. However, developments with my 93-year-old mother compel me to make this rare exception (and even then, You...

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Saturday, September 27, 2014,

16h42 UTC; SATURDAY, 27 SEPTEMBER 2014: So much for conservative prolefeeders whining about "voter fraud" to the extent of calling for "card check" as a "preemptive" measure (which, know, is dogwhistle code for disenfranchisement of specific subpopulations such elements insist are "incapable of making wise decisions without healthy and proper guidance"): AmeriKKKans for Prosperity-North Carolina, whose associations with Die Broers Koch are widely known, has been identified as being behind de...

Posted by Iludium Phosdex on Friday, September 26, 2014,

17h48 UTC; FRIDAY, 26 SEPTEMBER 2014: So much for the delusional notion from such packaging themselves as the Voice and Conscience of "REAL AmeriKKKa"--as in a rural/small-town Arcadian ideal populated for the most part by "poor whites" expected to see themselves as "REAL AmeriKKKans" united by a Pious and Humble Christian Faith as much as by a Natural and Organic Unity and Identity which turns out being based on the white-nationalist trope ORION, as in "Our Race Is Our Nation"--insisting tha...

17h47 UTC; THURSDAY, 25 SEPTEMBER 2014: Oooohhhhh, ye that call yourselves "Good Christians" and "True Patriots" who see yourselves as the True Sentinels and Guardians of Traditional Moral and Familial Values, True Patriot Love Thou Dost in Us Command (and By Any Means Necessary), and what you perceive to be die mensgesenterde ekonomesie vryheid van ons styl, as well as insisting that a Natural and Mutual Interconnexion insists between those concepts for the mutual benefit of Thy Dear and Lov...

17h47 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 24 SEPTEMBER 2014: There is probably some truth in Harper Lee's observation alluded to in the image as leads off these misadventures into Teh Blogospheerez today, in particular when it comes to such using Holy Writ to excuse their warped, delusional and jingoistic notions of True Patriot Love Thou Dost in Us Command--especially where manufactured crudity of emotion can be deployed under certain circumstances under the banner of "National Unity and Identity."

What such wit...

17h50 UTC; TUESDAY, 23 SEPTEMBER 2014: "That prudent mother, while she admired the beauty of the sacred scriptures, was convinced that, unrestricted, no reading more improper should be permitted a young woman. Many of the narratives can only tend to excite ideas the worst calculated for a female breast; everything is called plainly and roundly by its name; and the annals of a brothel could scarcely furnish a greater choice of indecent expressions."

Thus did British novellist Matthew Lewis, in ...

17h37 UTC; MONDAY, 22 SEPTEMBER 2014: To expecr the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" to "rescue itself" solely by channelling its (supposed) Natural Unity and Identity into a (theoretical, let alone officially-presented-as) Mission from God Serving the Luscious Glory of "REAL AmeriKKKa", rather than ask for State or charitable help in the Fox News-engedered belief that such would "only perpetuate dependency to the point of enslavement", smells like demanding too much.

Especially when the agenda of t...

17h15 UTC; SATURDAY, 20 SEPTEMBER 2014: If you can figure out for yourself the interrelationship between the lead-off image and what the same links to--well, let's just say it hath no real significance whatsoever in Your Correspondent's mind. Just go ahead and click on same to see what lurks.

Meanwhile, as for such across the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" as are deemed to be at High or Extreme Risk of Dependency Upon the Government, and yet in high school (especially so in their senior year), it ...

17h59 UTC; FRIDAY, 19 SEPTEMBER 2014: It's more than likely that Kevin Sorbo, former star of the syndicated series Hercules, will find his next acting job to be among the so-called "music shows" of Branson, MO rather than in Hollywood; credit that to his somewhat tasteless invocation of the stock anti-Semitic canard about "Jewish Control of Hollywood" to explain why so-called "Christian" films and TV programmes fail in the marketplace that the so-called "Bible-Believing Christian" insists is ...

17h47 UTC; THURSDAY, 18 SEPTEMBER 2014: If I may just explain, reader, that the lead-off image today links to the Facebook page relative to this very blog, where you peeps as read this page can share your two cents' worth on these posts without leaving Facebook.

Which is possible because these posts are cross-posted (via the RSS feed) unto said page within due course of their being posted here in this blog.

17h50 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 17 SEPTEMBER 2014: No wonder the conservative fetish for "word power" through manipulation, perversion even, of the language for "winning over hearts and minds" is as strong as it is--and yet carries the risk for such actually turning against their prolefeed enablers to the point of backfiring upon them. Especially their insistence on "considering alternative meanings" to particular words when applied to the old prolefeed.

The word "catholic," come to think of it, is a go...

20h53 UTC; TUESDAY, 16 SEPTEMBER 2014: In beginning this post, I should apologise for it being rather late in the posting department; Your Correspondent had a rather substantiative pizza buffet at Godfather's in Winona this lunchtime, and returned home to nap it off all the more for some reason or another. Hence, his going online a little later than normal, even considering that we may be getting over our late-summer cold snap here in the Minnwissippi with the forecase calling for milder weat...

17h21 UTC; MONDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER 2014: For starters, I feel it best to explain where, in regards to the leading images (and what they may link to), I would encourage you, dear and gentle reader, to discover for yourself without any serious prompting--or teasing, for that matter. Hopefully, such will turn out to be rather helpful and yet productive in the end.

So much for Christian Right majordomo (and former Arkansas Governor) Mike Huckabee

17h43 UTC; SATURDAY, 13 SEPTEMBER 2014: Isn't it stretching things to suggest that the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" can save itself socioeconomically by appealing to a presumed "natural unity and identity of the REAL AmeriKKKan" (howbeit "poor whites" of the lowest breeding and intellect, by and large) as is itself being sapped, compromised even, by homemade methamphetamines, Al Cohol and (in some extreme, howbeit isolated, cases) zoophilic sex mania driven largely by sexual frustration or outr...

17h37 UTC; FRIDAY, 12 SEPTEMBER 2014: If the lead-off image preceding for today's post doesn't exactly reflect this blogger's mindset and mentalities generally from day to day, Your Correspondent would appreciate your letting me know.

And now, to business (so to speak): The notion of ons styl ekonomesie vryheid being the Last and Only Hope for Reclaiming the Luscious Glory of "REAL AmeriKKKa" From Itself, preferably based on the concept encapsulated in the Afrikaans term Reddingsdaad (literall...

17h21 UTC; THURSDAY, 11 SEPTEMBER 2014: Should it so happen, reader, that you encounter the scenario illustrated in the leading image today as part of your commute, it may be a sign that the level-crossing signals are malfunctioning. And should be reported posthaste to railroad police, who in their turn will contact the proper railroad staff to have the problem reported.

As for major railroads in the United States and Canada, Railroad Police freecall contacts are as thus:

Speaking of camera smartfones, this link should answer your every need.

17h17 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 9 SEPTEMBER 2014: For Mark "Mars Hill" Driscoll and his Pacific Northwest megachurch, whose teachings are replete with "Biblical" misogyny and homophobia of the crudest sort, these are not the best of times--especially where you have the prospect of like-minded "Christian" Zealots who enjoy whining about the prospect of Mass Christian Persecution holding Driscoll up as "proof" of the Clear and Present...

17h27 UTC; TUESDAY, 9 SEPTEMBER 2014: In case you were asking about the indirect interconnexion vis-a-vis the image and what it linketh to, readers, today's such can be said to be a take on Apple's announcing several new products therefrom ... its aim being to demonstrate that ons styl ekonomesie vryheid is alive and well, and that you, Dear American Consumer, STILL have serious consumer choices which Teh Innerwebz makes all the easier, I will have you know.

17h23 UTC; MONDAY, 8 SEPTEMBER 2014: Something the AmeriKKKan "Christian Values" crowd may want to ponder in their Luscious Glory of hero-worship for Russian President Vladimir Putin as an Example and Ideal for "REAL AmeriKKKa" To Reclaim Her Past Glory as a Bible-Believing Christian Nation (cf. apartheid South Africa's Luscious Glory, mainly from the white perspective) may want to think about, by way of the following op-ed f...

Some Inconvenient Truths for the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKans" to ponder for once.

17h16 UTC; SATURDAY, 6 SEPTEMBER 2014: We can certainly do without the Elmer Gantryites taking the late Joan Rivers to the cleaners big-big time for the crudest sort of prolefeed such as they can excuse in the name of True Christian Love. In particular the sort which plays up the fact of her lesbianism and her support of gay/lesbian rights and causes.

That, and the usual Christian Right pablum which insists that t...

For some reason or another, Your Correspondent had this somewhat bizarre dream this morning which saw moi in close proximity to the Tasmanian Devil "himself," who, as it just so happened, was preparing to mate with She-Devil for no reason other then to satisfy his inner need.

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.
