see more LOLcatz!!


00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 1 AUGUST 2012: So a new month dawneth upon us all, and such is no reason not to stop discussing about the Things That Matter. Such as:
  • The fact of China's Xinhua news agency taking GOP Presidential wannabe Mitt Romney to task for his "hawkish" remarks during the weekend stop in Israel vis-a-vis the Palestinian Question, in its turn raising questions of subtle racism being a super-secret part of the Greater GOP/"Tea Party" agenda in Indecision 2012 as a whole ...
  • The unlikely "blessing in disguise" soybean farmers may be getting from cultivating genetically-modified soybeans developed by Monsanto in partnership with Goodyear to develop a synthetic oil-ersatz which, in its turn, translates into a better-performing tyre as negates any use of petroleum-based oil derivatives in tyre manufacture (cf. Thomas Edison's Last Great Invention, vintage 1929, of what would now be called a "genetically-modified" strain of goldenrod which could produce synthetic rubber and latex) ...
  • The possible back-room involvement of Wisconsin Governor Scott "Wisconsin IS Open for Business" Walker in the decision to do a dye job on Lake Delton in the Waterpark Capital region for the sake of "image-consciousness" (as in the ongoing warm weather causing toxic blue-green algae to bloom thereon, with ensuing fish kills) ...
  • India, itself a popular offshoring centre for cost-conscious American Industry (at the expense of Real. American. Jobs, understand), facing two straight days of power blackouts aggravated by outdated power transmission and distribution equipment on its national grid, throwing commuter trains into a standstill and factories into sudden idleness (today's power cut, in fact, afflicted some 670 million people, about half of its population) ...
  • The very prospect of Mitt Romney's campaign taking the John Galt route, hoping to recast Our Dear Lovely Nation according to the disciplines of the Afrikaner expression 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescuing itself"), subject to the disciplines of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe being seen as the Fountainhead and Wellspring thereof (cf. the Volkskapitalisme movement evolving out of the Tweede Trek-inspired Reddingsdaad campaign among Afrikaner nationalists down South Africa way) ...
  • The perennial insistence among "Tea Party" fellow-travellers that the only way the "welfare-dependent" can "rescue themselves from State enslavement [and] the misery such is reducing them to" is to "wholeheartedly" embrace the doctrine of 'n Volk red homself, and then "solely on their own initiative, tools and resources", this "lest chronic dependency ensue" in the process ...
  • Chick-fil-A restaurants getting a Last Shot of Redemption thanks to Elmer Gantryite calls for "REAL AmeriKKKans" to rally round the belaguered fast-food-chicken chain in the wake of executive admissions that its embrace of "Biblically-based values" includes homophobia, itself prompting calls for a boycott thereof (and Friday "occupation" by gay-rights activists at its several locations) ...
  • And One Thing More: Your Correspondent duly notes where Wisconsin Dells has more Likes on Facebook than Disneyworld or even Branson, MO. How could that be? he asked petulantly....
