joey and dusty -

00h UTC; MONDAY, 9 JULY 2012: Your Correspondent wishes to apologise to Janice from Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem (per The Muppet Show in its day) for providing some semblance of inspiration for the titling of today's blog post; "fer sher" was Janice's characteristic catchphrase of approval, obviously under the influence of Southern California surfing culture and its argot. (Any Muppet fans out there wishing to elaborate somewhat on this point can leave comments following this post.)

As for that "good Mrs. Murphy," &c., bit as has influenced post titles of late, such happens to be a mondegreen of "surely goodness and mercy shall follow me" per the 23rd Psalm, for those insisting on source material and inspiration.

Anyhow, reader, there's plenty worth discussing here, as is always the case here; onward:
  • The delusional ideal that only a "people-centred" ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe can save "REAL AmeriKKKa" (as in the rural and small-town Arcadia beloved of conservative prolefeeders as that which will Reclaim Our Dear Lovely Nation from Itself), and will "empower" the "REAL AmeriKKKans" therein resident (as in whites of the lowest breeding and intellect), carries with it a fatal flaw: Videlicet, that Wall Street stands to profit all the more than "REAL AmeriKKKa," never mind all the prolefeed about the Luscious Glory of a new, "people-centred" Volkskapitalisme (as it were) modelled on that which Afrikaner Nationalists were pushing in the decade before apartheid's implementation under the banner of Reddingsdaad ("rescue action") for and on behalf of the Afrikaner Volk. Which can only risk further serious socioeconomic polarisation and class warfare not even Fox News' demands for "Class Consciousness" based on Scientologist-model brainwashing and mind control exercises can preempt.
  • Could Our Dear Lovely AmeriKKKan Nation be about to see the serious implosion of the RepubliKKKan Party by way of their 2012 Convention in Tampa next month, what with numerous prominent RepubliKKKan Party members announcing a boycott of the convention, the Ron Paulites expected to provoke disorder when it comes to the party agenda for Indecision 2012 and "the Four Hundred" (thanks to Citizens United) doing the GOP's pis aller through the SuperPAC device, replete with sensationalised innuendo and the crudest manipulation of patriotic symbols and imagery?
  • Speaking of the RepubliKKKan Party, the Texas branch thereof, in its platform for Indecision 2012, calls for scrapping from the public-education syllabus studies in "critical thinking"--to be replaced with such in Crimestop, Blackwhite and Doublethink, as if insisting that ignorance was patriotic and at once virtuous.
  • So what exactly would conservatives (and their prolefeed drookies) consider to be "people-centred" in their Luscious Glory of insistence upon "people-centred, not bureauracy-centred" models of government reform "respecting personal liberty and individual freedom of choice" seen as Essential and Integral to AmeriKKKan National Character and Identity (knowing consciously and yet unconsciously that the North Koreans love using "people-centred" as a prolefeed meme in terms of their ideal of a "people-centred socialism")?
  • Expect calls for the week of the September 11th anniversary to be observed by "patriotic" hate and bigot groups generally as an annual Hate Week in Orwellian Luscious Glory, one rivalled only by the debauched fanaticism apartheid South Africa gave to the Geloftedag ("Day of the Vow") observance on December 16th, seen as the Afrikaner's Holiest Day (and its Holiest Hour being when the beam of the noonday sun hits die Senotaaf in the center of the Heldesaal of the Voortrekker Monument and its inscription ONS VIR JOU, SUID-AFRIKA).
  • Your Correspondent having been himself a victim of the sheltered-workshop system in past and its misplaced expectations of "helping the disabled find good work" through menial assembly positions and the pressure to "meet industrial standards" as would qualify clients for job search in the community, with unstable pay and unpredictable job assignments day by day (officially "to help develop a well-rounded portfolio of job experience"), can identify with the plight of such still "in the system", still facing serious challenges to employment ... as turns out being aggravated by group-home rules insisting that clients be off the premises during the day, increasingly selective hiring policies of employers and counselling staff in sheltered workshops expecting clients to play the stereotype, any challenge or deviation therefrom to be seen as "sapping the strength," "violating Unwritten Tradition," "compromising the Natural Order," &c., &c.
  • If social conservatives are so opposed to the unhealthy dominance of lottery sales outlets in lower-income, economically-challenged and National Minority-dominant "group areas," as it were, as "threats to the poor," then what prevents their promoting the likes of mutual savings banks or even friendly societies in such neighbourhoods in line with their ideal of promoting thrift and personal responsibility?
  • And how do we know those among the conservative ranks who take issue with pornography as "endangering family values" aren't themselves secretly looking for ways to dump cheap and cheerful specimens of the old "elegant pornoo" among lower-income areas as turns out to be rather graphic, explicit and even devoid of underlying plot, story or moral values, more than likely being sold in generic packaging under the belief that the Lower Classes lack any coherent grasp of general ideas to know they're being willfully used?
