Made in China probably from the best sources to buy
cheapjack probably buy your local dollar store!


22h30 UTC; MONDAY, 28 JULY 2014: One element as is sure to profit from the Noble Experiment proposed of Rep. Paul Ryan to shame the Lower Classes out of "chronic and habitual welfare dependency" and into "productive" employment would probably have to be those behind various "cashflow gifting clubs" who see such as the "new wave" of social welfare because of its "voluntary" model, in particular the kind as structure said clubs so that only those in its highest echelons profit thanks to a simple (and yet deliberate) manipulation of the relevant algorithm which can be cheaply excused as being "consulting fees" or otherwise "programming errors" in case those in the same start asking questions as to why they're not getting claimed payouts.

Itself calling to mind the "Send-A-Dime" chain letters of the mid-1930's (until the Post Office stopped such as being an Illegal Lottery) ... the "Pyramid Clubs" as were popular for a few years after World War II (until they were unable to get fresh members and capital) ... and the "Five Reports" chain letters of the "Dave Rhodes," "David Mack" and "Jonathon Rourke/Jody Jacobs" stylee of the mid-late 1990's, with a short resurgence after the Unfortunate Events of 9/11 as invoked Oprah Winfrey, 60 Minutes, 20/20 and The Wall Street Journal for faux credibility, particularly where PayPal came into play to avoid attracting the wrath of Postal Inspectors as reinforced by the opening bars of Walter Schumann's Dragnet theme.

And which, in any case, ought be worth calling out. Or, better still, challenged to "go straight" and embrace friendly-society models offering tax-beneficial savings and insurance schemes, which could also provide employment training and assistance, or grants and bursaries towards that end.



Perhaps the preceding image could be a metaphor of sorts for Sarah Palin's new subscription-based prolefeed channel online, which she promises to be the go-to source for "unfiltered news"--which, for all I know, will tend heavily to Logical Fallacy of all sorts, not to mention race hatred, xenophobic jingoism, anti-Semitism, nativism, sexism, "patriotic" paranoia; in short, prolefeed in a form and manner calling to mind Der Sturmer, Julius Streicher's blatantly crude anti-Semitic tabloid back in Nazi Germany as saw themselves to be "Germany's Weekly Newspaper in the Fight for Truth" (or so its nameplate proclaimed) whose oversimplification made it especially popular among the German masses in whipping up anti-Semitism as translated into the Holocaust.

In fact, the new Sarah Palin Channel (as such will be styled) will cost $9.95/month or $99.50/annum--more than Netflix streaming services, it's been pointed out. And come to think of it, Your Correspondent would love to see a freeview-based streaming channel online that I call "Wisconsin Dells Weekend Television" (after the former London Weekend Television in England's Green and Pleasant Land) whose approach could be a mix of early MTV, datime panel chat shows like The View and The Talk and European offshore pirate radio stations of the 1960's and 1970's--a free, light approach that would be fun to watch for once (not unlike Hunan Satellite Television out of China a few years back).



Will it be called "Family Dollar Tree"? I ask this in light of the news that dollar-store chain Dollar Tree has agreed to acquire its faltering rival, Family Dollar Stores, for $93 million in cash and unsecured debt. Never mind, of course, where most of rhe stuff in dollar stores can be of predictably campy quality and value for money, and can only go so far.

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