00h57 UTC; MONDAY, 7 JULY 2014: Neo-Confederate groups, holding dear as an article of faith the "natural right of self-determination" for so-called "Confederate Southern AmeriKKKans" (as in such descended from white residents of the territory eventually becoming the Confederate States of America as per the 1860 Census) as an "oppressed people and nation," will just love to trot out "Heritage, Not Hate" as their rallying-cry in support therefor.

Unfortunately, though, Hate is intertwined with the same Heritage such sympathisers love to invoke in defence:

The majority of white Southerners (in particular the so-called "Confederate Southern AmeriKKKans") are likely to be of Scots-Irish descent, whose propensity for Extreme Ultraviolence as the tool of choice for resolving conflict is something latent and inherent vis-a-vis ethno-national identity and heritage. And there are studies which confirm this for a fact, especially relative to the Former Confederacy's having higher-than-average rates of violent crimes such as involve firearms, rape or force.

Which is, all in all, rather ironic for the whole "Heritage, Not Hate" argument. And deflates it, as a matter of fact.

Fuel. For. Thought. (Click on same to learn all.)

Come to think of it, how many incumbent electric-power utilities in the United States are pleading the old res angusta domi relative to investments in renewable energy sources (including wind, solar and hydro) to the point of having to default on outstanding bonds, reduce or suspend shareholder dividends, reverse-split its shares and/or seek end-user rate increases to prevailing utilities regulators By Any Means Necessary, hoping to avoid public scandal as would make the utilities empire of Samuel Insull look like a Wisconsin Dells waterpark resort by comparison by recourse to the sub rosa?

And One Thing Moar: Just what exactly makes ons styl ekonomesie vryheid the Pearl of Great Price certain conservative prolefeeders expect us to see it relative to Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations Solely by the Goodness of His Grace and Favour (especially when the appeal is given in a pathetically emotional tone and stylee itself raising questions about its sincerity, particularly where Al Cohol, Mary Jane Weaver, Auntie Em and/or Old Doc Snow come into the equation to maximise the emo)?

So until next time, folks ... "73"
