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 the "Hollywood Liberal Elite" has no respect for True Patriot Love Thou Dost in Us Command, especially so where a manufactured State of National Emergency can be fabricated under the guise of National Unity and Identity Being Defended. And especially so the sort of True Patriot Love, usw., seen as being upheld among the Branson Music Shows, The One True Acme and Ideal of Amerikaanse Realkultuur, the AmeriKKKan People's True Cultural Ideal and Acme (never mind the fact of many such likely being kept open by subsidies from right-wing prolefeed groups seeing in said "music shows" a cheap and cheerful, yet at once discreet, prolefeed conduit in a manner not unlike the Kraft durch Frude back in Nazi Germany or the Reddingsdaadbond in the naissence of apartheid South Africa).



Methinks it's the acme of blasphemy, apostasy even, for such who uphold themselves as Good Christians in the Face of Clear and Imminent Persecution and Martyrdom Rivalled Only by the Depravities of the British Against the Pious and Humble Boers of South Africa in the Boer War (1899-1902) to call for embracing the same tactics of prolefeed (and, if need be, overt insurrection) as the Islamic State militancy as are running roughshod over Iraq and Syria for "winning over the hearts and minds" of Good Christians Across Thy Dear and Lovely Land to "preempt" perceived wholesale persecution.

Especially when the evidence is at best incredible and at worst paranoid.

Not to mention raising questions as to the mental capacity of such prolefeeders.



At this time, Your Correspondent would like to explain his recent fetish for using as a post-titling theme the "Excedrin Headache No. X" such, starting at Excedrin Headache No. 5150 recently, for such among you as must be asking inside yourselves such a question: It just came to me out of the blue, crossing those "Excedrin Headache No." commercials from the mid-1970's (back when cable TV was limited to improving reception in hilly communities) with "5150" as synonym for "crazy" or "insane."

For those unaware of the term's origins, such alludes to Section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code, as allows for involuntary psychiatric hospitalisation for a maximum of 72 hours (excepting weekends and holidays) of such persons deemed to be Clear and Present Danger to the Self or Others, particularly where the threat of injury, harm or self-slaughter ensueth. How it came to be that "5150" became a synonym for "crazy" is anybody's guess, but it's inspired a Facebook status-update page as is interesting in and of itself. Especially so to moi.

Now you know.

So till next time, folks: "73"
(Which, incidentally, was railroad telegraphers' shorthand for "goodbye.")
