Easy summer starting at this link or why?


19h11 UTC; THURSDAY. 5 JUNE 2014: With The Sunday Times of London recently reporting that the Emirate of Qatar may have bribed its way into winning the right to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup soccer competitions, some quarters are wondering if FIFA, the international governing body for soccer, should revoke the award thereof and restart the bidding process. Should that be necessary, may I be first to recommend the Duchy of Grand Fenwick as replacement host state for the 2022 World Cup.

(But then again, does said Duchy actually have a national soccer association as is in the good graces of FIFA and/or its European counterpart, UEFA?)

Meanwhile, so long as Qatar's right to host the 2022 World Cup is still recognised, there's an emerging tragedy over the recruitment of foreign guestworkers from impoverished countries to handle infrastructure-related works across the Emirate thus related, and the pitiful conditions being faced thereby in terms of housing, pay, meals and work conditions. Which, by official estimates, has translated into at least 924 deaths among guestworkers since Qatar launched preparatory works for the 2022 World Cup two years back, much of which can be put down to the extreme desert conditions and temperatures which can exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer.

So where exactly does it say that the defence of ekonomesie vryheid van ons styl requires contempt for the poor, the vulnerable, the socioeconomically-marginalised, the "abnormal" and National Minorities generally to ensure its sustained viability as one with Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations by His Divine Grace and Favour?

In a relared vein, Your Correspondent needs to ask just how is it possible for ekonomesie vryheid to be "people-centred" while condoning socioeconomic inequality and impoverishment, contempt for the poor and such being packaged in the worst possible display of patriotism since apartheid South Africa as the Last and Only Hope for Saving "REAL AmeriKKKa" from Itself.

Something for the "Support Our Troops" crowd to ponder big time: A former commander of the Navy's Blue Angels precision flight demonstration team is facing discipline and reprimand over charges that under his command, the Blue Angels was rife with misogynistic sexism of the crudest and most depraved sort, replete with sexually-explicit photos of naked women being condoned in the cockpits of stunt aircraft and homophobic jokes, ballads and stories being encouraged as part of the banter in barracks.

So much for trying to invoke the sacred and profane name of "Mayo" to win attention
in and around Rochester, MN, which happens to be the home of the world-renowned and far-famed Mayo Clinic: Two recent "Answer Man" columns in their local gazetta, the Post-Bulletin by name, took note of a rather hilariously absurd attempt by one Mayo Priebe, a local businessman, to market over-the-counter remedies invoking the "Mayo's" name and stylee in the late 1950's and early 1960's in and around Rochester, as in "Mayo's A-Wake Tablets" (akin to No-Doz), "Mayo-Cin" (akin to Anacin) and "Mayo's Lotion".

Only it turned out that the way it was presented was enough to cause some confusion on the part of Mayo Clinic when some patients there as saw these several remedies enquired about any possible interconnexion with same, especially from a business standpoint--which, it turned out, was not the case. Enough so to prompt the Mayo Clinic to sue Mayo's Drug and Cosmetic Company (as the marketers of Mayo's A-Wake, Mayo-Cin and Mayo's Lotion) for Unfair Competition and Dilution of Trademarks, eventually reaching the Minnesota State Supreme Court in early 1962; they ruled that, indeed, Mayo's Pain Relievers were confusing the public with the Mayo Clinic, especially considering its market area.
