19h UTC; MONDAY, 22 JULY 2013: Before I begin, Your Correspondent needs to explain where the inspiration for this post's titling and styling came by way of a T-shirt spotted on a young kid the other day at the Kwik Trip near Minnesota City, where Your Correspondent is fond of making a round-trip bicycle ride every evening in season, as conditions allow; the shirt in question read "Annoying You is One of My Many Talents."

But then again, it doesn't hurt to vary the message enough to Engrishfy it, the better to try and make it more hilarious with an eye to attracting curiosity and attention. (Or trying to, at any rate.)

And in any case, could best describe the mindset Your Correspondent is fond of taking vis-a-vis the Zealotry and True Belief of certain conservative elements hiding behind the cloak of God and Country to conceal what may actually be gross contempt for such they claim to defend the honour and integrity of ... particularly from the standpoint of Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations By Divine Right (which some such insist requires the most blatant defence of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe as essential to said National Character and Identity, the argument conservatives having in this case being that "if Cuba can insist on an interconnexion between Socialism and National Character and Identity in its Constitution, then what would prevent AmeriKKKa from applying the same logic to ekonomesie vryheid, &c., through the common-sense formality of a Constitutional Amendment establishing this as the law of the land?").

Equally absurd from the logical standpoint conservatives must have in this regard is an insistence that the defence of Our National Character and Identity is likewise that of ekonomesie vryheid, &c., and vice versa, so implying that an attack on one concept is automatically deemed that on the other. Hence, to use one of their pet prolefeed tropes about Our Dear and Lovely Nation being "under clear and present threat and attack" from especially within, does this automatically mean that ekonomesie vryheid, &c., is simultaneously under threat and attack (as if it really mattered to the "REAL AmeriKKKan" in his Luscious Glory of poverty, fecundity and ignorance, all conscious and willful)? And where exactly is the (il)logic here?

Meanwhile, for sheer conservative illogic made manifest, you can't get any better than AmeriKKKan House Speaker John Boehner's suggestion on yesterday's broadcast of the CBS newsmaker interview show Face the Nation that the "REAL AmeriKKKan" should judge the current Congress "not by the number of laws it passes, but by the number of laws it repeals"--as if hoping that such "regulatory relief" would spontaneously, magically and wholeheartedly translate into significant and measurable jobs creation by the private sector overnight. Unfortunately, such evidence of a direct interconnexion between "regulatory relief" and jobs creation as is factual, documented and peer-reviewed is grossly lacking (even when you consider the changes to the telecoms industry following the breakup of the former Bell System on monopolies grounds in 1984, in particular the divorcement of local exchange and long-distance services).

That, and the prospect of wondering if the kind of jobs that "Tea Party," "9/12" and "Christian Patriot" types actually want created "to put REAL AmeriKKKa back to work according to the principles of [ekonomesie vryheid, &c.]," and solely out of the free-enterprise system's collective goodness of heart, are such based upon network marketing (as in "multi-level," "binary" and "forced-matrix" models which, more likely than not, emphasise building downline over the sale of viable products or services with value for money; this, I assume, would also include the "Five Reports" and "mailing list" schemes as made the rounds for awhile after 9/11)  ... in particular, such as are willfully and consciously structured to fail in 99 cases out of 100, with the lucky ones being used as "heroes and role-models" for the rank-and-file to study and emulate (unaware that such are really carefully-manipulated "singers" coached into saying glowing things on infomercials in connexion with said schemes at 2:30 in the morning, knowing such are patently and obviously false).

In other words, hoping to "save free enterprise" and, hence, Thy Dear and Lovely Land through what essentially are Ponzi schemes, which require a constant and steady stream of fresh "idle monies" to leverage unto "productive capital" to remain viable. (The namesake thereof, Charles Ponzi, had designs on publishing an export-import manual and compendium--a precursor of Value Line, perhaps?--when he came up with the scheme to raise funds therefor, claiming such were being invested in International Reply Coupons issued on behalf of postal agencies in countries whose economies and currencies were decimated by World War I ... only he was paying off established investors with new capital until the pool ran short. Ponzi would eventually be found guilty of fraud, ultimately losing his millions to the point of his dying in a hospital charity ward.)
