00h UTC; SATURDAY, 3 NOVEMBER 2012: As if the all-too-close proximity we have now in America to Indecision 2012 wasn't awful enough, you have to imagine just how much of the merchandise sold at Menard's is actually of American manufacture; I ask this inasmuch as reports have surfaced that management at the Midwestern hardware and home supply superstore, in their Luscious Glory of anti-union Zealotry and True Belief, are requiring employees to take part in a "civics" course whose material was written by groups affiliated with Die Broers Koch, as in insisting that ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe is somehow integral to Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations.

Make no mistake about it: Your typical "REAL AmeriKKKan," in his Luscious Glory of Fox News-influenced "race consciousness" designed to distract from his unfortunate state of "poor whiteism" holding him down all the lower, would just love to learn Afrikaans by way of Rosetta Stone or the Pimselur Approach out of misplaced "identity and solidarity" with his equally-race-conscious Afrikaner bretheren "of pious and humble Christian faith" down South Africa way supposedly seen as being "in danger of genocidal persecution" as "payback" by the African National Congress (ANC)-led regime for the atrocities of apartheid when, in fact, the "evidence" of said "persecution" is probably confusing murder in furtherance of robbery by black farmworkers with "genocide."

How much longer before the more blatant specimens of White Christian Supremacy, having no regard for a Reality which sees their supposedly "morally superior" race losing their dominant position in the Greater American Demographic (said dominance being seen thus as a "natural birthright" of the race), start dusting off the more blatant brand of "race suicide" prolefeed such as was common a century or more ago?

In case the Romney/Ryan Presidential ticket was looking for some worthwhile specimen for the "REAL AmeriKKKan" to embrace and adopt as an ideal of "people-centred" socioeconomic recovery "born out of the Volk to serve the Volk," as it were, what would preclude the promotion of the South African stokvel model of mutual savings and loan club, wherein members (admitted By Invitation Only) agree to give a set amount every month, with the proceeds pooled to one such every month on a rotating basis? (For further insight on the phenomenon, consider these somewhat scholarly reports [here and here], both in the PDF format. As for advice on setting up your very own such, consider this article for a starter.)

And where exactly does the Bible hold that the defence of Biblical Values and ekonomesie vryheid, &c., are mutually interconnected (especially such aspects of the former excusing racism, sexism, nativism, jingoism, xenophobia and gross intolerance generally of the sort which marked quasi-Fascist regimes in Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal and South Africa in their day)?

Just a couple of reminders before I go for the weekend (hopefully, I'll be back Monday):
  1. Keep handy on your mobile the freecall number 1-866-OUR-VOTE in case you come across any real or suspected displays of polling-station harrassment, intimidation, fearmongering or suppression targeting certain "Non-Producer" classes of voter.
  2. Unless you live in the American states of Arizona or Hawai'i, America's Minor Outlying Islands (as in American Samoa, Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands), or the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, remember to set your clocks back an hour before retiring Saturday evening, as Standard Time returns on the overnight.
Meanwhile, in the diarrhea ward of New Rightus Hospital and Nursing Home....
