00h UTC; TUESDAY, 9 APRIL 2013: No doubt about it: The world's mourning the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the trans-Atlantic counterpart of The Great (Mis)communicator, from stroke yesterday morning at 87 years of age. And if anything, the more hard-wired specimens of conservative, "Tea Party" even, types of Zealotry and True Belief would just love to deify her alongside their Hero and Idol, Ronald Reagan ... and, for good measure, Hendrik Verwoerd, Geutilmo Vargas, Fulgencio Batista, Alberto Salazar, Generalissimo Francisco Franco, J. Edgar Hoover, Taylor Caldwell, Robert K. Welch, &c., &c.

As worshipped at the Church of Ronald Reagan in Branson, their One True Ideal and Acme of Amerikanischer Leikultur, the Volkskultur of the "REAL AmeriKKKan" calling to mind how the Nazi regime manipulated a special jubilee season of the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1934 for propaganda ends.

Beautiful Downtown Pyongyang seems to be going into full-on paranoia mode, and then some, about the clear and present imminence (they hope) of "sacred war" against as much South Korea as the United States: Witness the shock closing of the Kaesong Industrial Zone, set up as a joint venture to allow smaller South Korean companies to manufacture consumption goods cheaply with cheaper North Korean labour ... and their intention to engage in yet another missile test as can make Seoul and Tokyo as much as Washington nervous sometime in the week, not to mention fresh threats for "sacred war" which fail to consider that one misstep on the part of "Young General" Kim Jong Un could be the unravelling of his own country and the "Juche Idea" of a self-reliant, "people-centred socialism" that his grandfather, "Eternal Leader" Kim Il Sung, sought to achieve and his father, "Eternal First Secretary" Kim Jong Il, sought to perfect all the more. Even if it meant forcibly starving his own people, denuding whole hillsides just to maximise potentially arable land (and with the inevitable consequences of soil erosion, flooding and worse) and giving the military "natural precedence" in the name of that "people-centred socialism."

In any event, The Daily Rundown on MSNBC yesterday morning mentioned where two especially important and sacred dates in the North Korean calendar forthcoming may bear watching for what Pyongyang may come up with: The anniversaries of "Eternal Leader" Kim Il Sung's birth on the 15th and that of the Korean People's Army's founding on the 25th, both of this month. Still, though, as some North Korea watchers have suggested, such bluffing may be designed for domestic consumption, seeking to divert the Great Unwashed North Korean Masses from their state-enforced privation and misery into displays of National Cohesion and Unity which can be manufactured for prolefeed on short notice.

Given where Tax Return Fraud's becoming an even greater problem
for many millions of Real Americans frustrated at delays in the due and timely receipt of their income tax refunds because of possible Identity Theft schemes in furtherance thereof, something to think about for last-minoota taxpayers (and other taxpayers as well) would be to complete and return IRS Form 8821 (Tax Information Authorisation) with your Form 1040 or apropos mutation (1040A, 1040EZ, 1040NR, 1040X or 1040ES) thereof (link is in PDF format, know); the better to protect your true identity with the IRS in case prison-based scammers file sham tax refund requests (or try to) invoking your good name and repute; by completing Form 8821, the IRS can give you "early warning" should anyone so attempt to claim tax refunds in your name and behalf.

As well, this might also be as good a time as any to suggest where, along with your tax return, you may also want to make a tax-deductible Gift to Reduce the National Debt and include same with said tax returns; be sure you make the cheque or money order out to "Bureau of the Public Debt" and note "Gift to Reduce Debt Held by the Public" on the "Memo" or "For" line. (Don't forget, too, that 9.11% of my commission from your purchases off the Online Mall will go towards Reducing the National Debt.)
