18h UTC; TUESDAY, 23 APRIL 2013: And you thought North Korea had calmed it down on the threatening and bellicose rhetoric about seeking to unleash "sacred war" upon the United States: Such was but a brief pause, allowing for their "Day of the Sun" holiday marking the birth anniversary of their so-called "Eternal Leader" Kim Il Sung last week: Now, Beautiful Downtown Pyongyang is telling the United States to "show some respect" to the regime for once vis-a-vis its "natural and sovereign right to defend itself"--even with atomic weapons, if need be--as well as their "natural and sovereign right" to exist as a Peculiar Among the Nations.

Not to mention possibly dropping hints of the North Korean regime's prolefeed perhaps the sort as would love to use the DARVO ("Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender") canard popular among domestic-abuse and violence perpetrators.

Would it be too much to imagine the same Moroun family behind Detroit's Ambassador Bridge, and its misguided desires to maintain its "exclusive natural monopoly" for an international bridge between Detroit and Windsor, as tending to incest, sodomy and even bastardy wholesale, with plot lines worthy of a telenovela in Latinoamericano stylee?

Memo to the Gordon Ramsay element, especially in the tackiest of shoobie traps: There are Real People watching your every move, and willing to post the worst possible details of their dining experiences. Hence, be willing and prepared to defend your good name and repute; however, I'd be one to avoid the F-word and its variants such as Meneer Ramsay is fond of deploying without provocation.

For such insisting that ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe is somehow essential and integral to Our National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations, a new study suggests that your Zealotry and True Belief in said concept may indirectly (as a tort, even) condone rejecting science in reinforcement of this belief, not unlike the following extract from Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four in explaining the Oceanic Ingsoc regime's rejection of science and scientific concepts for ideologically-driven ends more than anything:
...In Oceania at the present day, Science, in the old sense, has almost ceased to exist. In Newspeak there is no word for "Science". The empirical method of thought, on which all the scientific achievements of the past were founded, is opposed to the most fundamental principles of Ingsoc. And even technological progress only happens when its products can in some way be used for the diminution of human liberty. In all the useful arts the world is either standing still or going backwards. The fields are cultivated with horse-ploughs while books are written by machinery. But in matters of vital importance -- meaning, in effect, war and police espionage -- the empirical approach is still encouraged, or at least tolerated. The two aims of the Party are to conquer the whole surface of the earth and to extinguish once and for all the possibility of independent thought. There are therefore two great problems which the Party is concerned to solve. One is how to discover, against his will, what another human being is thinking, and the other is how to kill several hundred million people in a few seconds without giving warning beforehand. In so far as scientific research still continues, this is its subject matter. The scientist of today is either a mixture of psychologist and inquisitor, studying with real ordinary minuteness the meaning of facial expressions, gestures, and tones of voice, and testing the truth-producing effects of drugs, shock therapy, hypnosis, and physical torture; or he is chemist, physicist, or biologist concerned only with such branches of his special subject as are relevant to the taking of life.
The which can risk gross perversion, Frankenstein-stylee, in the name of, and service to, ekonomesie vryheid, &c., &c. (Too, you also have the likelihood for where a manufactured interconnexion of the aforementioned ekonomesie vryheid, &c., with Bible-Believing Christianity Founded and Predicated Upon the Pure Saving Gospel of Jeebus Christus, could also be pushed, with overtones of apartheid South Africa holding up as Examples Worthy of Study and Emulation vis-a-vis Afrikaner Enterprise in the Luscious Glory of Afrikanerdom the likes of the tobacco and luxury goods group Rembrandt, as in such cigarette brands as Rembrandt, Springbok and Peter Stuyvesant.)

Would it be too much to imagine where Sequestration-mandated budget cuts at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) forcing air traffic controllers to take two days' unpaid leave per month for the interim, as well as control towers at certain smaller airports to be closed outright--with attendant delays possible in commercial air traffic between especially major airports--may be a back-door "blessing in disguise" for such transportation alternatives out there as Amtrak, Greyhound, Megabus and what remains of the Chinatown bus fraternity (especially following a Long Knives-stylee "safety review" forcing many of the more notorious such out of business, Fung Wah Tours perhaps the most notorious case) among such who could otherwise be frustrated by atrocity tales of air travel delays?

(Just a heads up for such considering Megabus: Their eschewing more conventional bus termini in favour of streetside pickup and dropoff, Chinatown bus stylee, may not be all that convenient, but they insist that such helps keep their fares low--as much as $1 one way, in fact--thus explaining their value for money.)
