During the rush to get this calendar and diary in the year 2015 is one.


17h30 UTC; MONDAY, 14 JULY 2104: And talk about being caught in Pantsdown Parade big time:
  • Walmart and Amazon.com have apologised for offering as a "motivational poster" an image of the infamous main gate at the Dachau concentration camp proclaiming ARBEIT MACHT FREI (German; "work will make you free") in response to complaints about the sheer insensitivity thereof vis-a-vis the Nazi regime's victims made to suffer its worst indignities inside its precincts. (Come to think of it, I have to wonder if some of its purchasers were Vocational Guidance Counsellors of the worst sort in especially "Tea Party"-influenced states charged with getting the Lower Classes to find work per state workfare schemes.)
  • Samsung, the South Korean electronics powerhouse, has acknowledged that it used a Chinese subcontractor knowingly using child labour (in some instances, as young as 12 years) to fill rush orders on their smartfone assembly lines, and for as long as 20 hours a day without the Common Courtesy of rest or meal breaks; this after China Labour Watch broke the story this past week.
(The last one dedicated to such still adamant in their insistence that AmeriKKKa "needs to be more like China" in the interest of socioeconomic recovery.)


Who can comprehend this menu, anyway?!


We are once again reminded that "it's YOUR money!" at stake with the revelations that the "economically stimulating" tax cuts of Bush the Younger have erased some $6.6 trillion of real workers' income all this time--and yet all this time, "Tea Party" articles of faith still insist on a "people-centred" model of socioeconomic recovery and stimulation founded on the concept of ekonomesie vryheid van ons styl being one with Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations Solely by His Grace and Favour.

Which may conceal the fact that the several sects collectively known as the "Tea Party" are really some class of an Evil Religious Cult in the making, with especial appeal to the Moronic Underworld otherwise expected to see themselves as the "REAL AmeriKKKans," especially where reinforced by the pathetically emotional on steroids and amphetamines, as it were.

Not to mention explaining why it is that Your Correspondent continues to believe in contributing part of the proceeds from your purchases in the Online Mall towards Reduction of the National Debt of the United States, as if you needed Clear and Compelling Reason to excuse your shopping online such as its having to show some class of an indirect benefit to the community in the end.

Finally--



So until next time, folks ... "73"
(Which was railroad telegraphers' shorthand for "goodbye,"
in case you're wondering.)
