18h05 UTC; FRIDAY, 10 OCTOBER 2014: In seeking to reclaim an all-the-more-slipping Luscious Glory of "wholehearted popular support" among its core of the so-called "REAL AmeriKKKa" as tends, for the most part, to dominance by and among the Moronic Underworld, you can just imagine those who see themselves as "cultural conservatives" so hard-wired in their True Belief in a "sacred" Kultuurkryg they insist is essential to Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations calling for nothing less than a Volkskongres op Kulturele Identiteit en Erfenis (Afrikaans; "People's Congress on Cultural Identity and Heritage") to establish their ideal parameters for an Amerikaanse Volkskultuur theoretically expected to reflect the Traditional Values, Heritage and Identity of "REAL AmeriKKKa."

One which, it turns out, holds Branson, MO and its "music shows" to be the Defining Standard and Acid Test therefor, replete with its subtle appeals to the basest of patriotic emotions and feelings which, it turns out, are of a xenophobically jingoistic nature, expected to be simple, easy to understand, and based on the premise of Thy Dear and Lovely Land being entitled as of Divine Right and Will to call from abeyance apartheid South Africa's former title as God's Own Country. Such to be reinforced by ons styl ekonomesie vryheid being seen as "naturally and mutually interconnected" unto Our National and Sovereign Identity so that the two are seen as having common and mutual benefit for the AmeriKKKan People and Nation.

Only it turns out that such was previously arrived at in camera, with the Volkskongres avenue being seen as but a "mere formality" of approving such (again, in camera, excused as being "for the benefit of the AmeriKKKan People and Nation).

And "approved" in--where else?--Branson.

What may be the ultimate in "stunting" (as in radio stations suddenly changing formats or playlists in hopes of improving ratings, sometimes to the point of quirkiness--as in playing the same song or band over and over again--usually as a tactic to stay on air in the face of a pending sale): CBC Radio's As It Happens programme last night noted where Houston, TX FM station News 92.1, just within this week,and without prior notice, switched from an all-news format to an all-Beyoncé programme and recast themselves as B92 ("All Beyoncé, All The Time")--howbeit at the expense of 40 employees of the former News 92.1, all let go as part of the rebranding by reformatting.

(Such, perhaps, carrying some subtle degree of hometown pride; the popular singer--whose full name, BTW, is Beyoncé Knowles--is originally from Houston herself.)

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