18h45 UTC; MONDAY, 2 DECEMBER 2013: Recent remarks by Pope Francis in his first encyclical as take issue with that best described as ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe, and his perception that such is incompatible with Traditional Christian Values, have no doubt opened quite the hornet's nest ideological, theological even, with certain Religiopolitical Right prolefeeders over the recent days.

And it was none other than The Oxycontin Boar "himself" as opened the floodgates of what may be an emerging (and at once distractive) brand of pseudotheology which the Christian Right and their Primitive Christian drookies in Zealotry and True Belief would love to see promoted as among the articles of faith that the so-called "Good Christian" (expected also to be a "REAL AmeriKKKan" wallowing otherwise in the Luscious Glory of enforced poverty, fecundity and ignorance--not to mention overblown Race Honour of the "14 Words" and "ORION" sort) is expected to accept without question, reservation or evasion as a Sanctii Sanctorum of Traditional AmeriKKKan Christian Values, Heritage and Identity.

Especially so the sort packaged as the Last and Only Hope for as much the "REAL AmeriKKKan" as the very concept of ekonomesie vryheid, &c., itself. As well as drawing ideological and prolefeed parallels to the Afrikaner Ekonomeise Beweging as sought to save the "poor white" ranks of Afrikanerdom from themselves starting in the late 1930's down South Africa way, especially considering where such, as encapsulated in the likes of the Reddingsdaadbond movement and its appeals to Volkseenheid, were seen as a Mission from God to give the Afrikaner His True and Rightful Piece of the South African Economic Pie.

Such to be best achieved through a "people-centred" reinvention of capitalist models known as Volkskapitalisme, predicated on the belief that (as NewHistory.co.za put it) "free enterprise was not intended primarily to create wealth for individuals for their own sake, or for a handful of individuals. It had to help the Afrikaners escape from their economic thrall and gain for the people their legitimate share of the economy." Same to be achieved through the mobilisation of the otherwise "idle monies" held by "REAL AmeriKKKans" into "productive capital" through the leverage of their savings reinforced by appeals to "Austerity Towards Prosperity" itself reinforced by the crassest invocation of patriotic symbols and imagery itself reinforced by an emotionally-driven prolefeed of the most pathetic brand.

Especially so by pushing the trope about "personal responsibility" being at the heart of "reinventing" State Social Security through denationalisation thereof along Latinoamericano models, unaware that such expected to "benefit" thereby (or so the prolefeed would ahve it) don't understand the basic workings of the equities markets as would be at the heart of this Noble Experiment whose models are likely to be those of the Sanlam-managed FVB investment house begat of the Afrikaner Ekonomesie Beweging (and its later offshoot, the Bonuskor unit trust), the Volkskas banking-house (originally structured as a mutual, but later demutualised) and the Reddingsdaadbond mass movement.

But does "REAL AmeriKKKa" really need such pathetic appeals to jingoism?

Meanwhile, tell me if the timing wasn't perfect in the following incident, as noted by StarTribune.com:
As a trio of singers performed “Let it Snow,” at the Mall of America rotunda, a 29-year-old Apple Valley man made it “snow money” by flinging $1,000 in dollar bills over the third-floor railing onto the crowd below, saying he wanted to spread holiday cheer.

But the seemingly charitable act Friday afternoon landed Serge Vorobyov a disorderly conduct ticket from Bloomington police, who said it was just a publicity stunt that Vorobyov hoped would persuade his estranged girlfriend to get back together.

According to police, Vorobyov admitted throwing the money, which he had stamped with his YouTube address to direct people to it. He was cited for causing the disruption and released at the scene.

In a YouTube video that Vorobyov posted under the name “Serge The Car Hauler,” he says he had a “really tough year.” He says he decided to throw out his “last $1,000 … to spread some holiday cheer … to make it snow money” as the singers (not part of the stunt) performed.

Vorobyov acknowledges in the video that he was cited for disorderly conduct for the publicity stunt, even posting a photo of the citation on his Facebook page, but he argues that no one was hurt.

“I don’t see how holiday cheer is disorderly conduct,” he said.

Mall of America spokeswoman Sarah Schmidt said it’s the first time anyone has ever done something like that in the mall, but added that Vorobyov disrupted the performance and could’ve caused a serious situation.
"Stay classy, Mall of America," as glam newsreader Ron Burgundy (t/n Will Farrell) would've phrased it.

Latest example of brand extension which may make you want to think about maybe doing it cheaper by tweaking old established family recipes: Darden Restaurants' Red Lobster seafood restaurant chain has licenced Continental Mills (as in Krusteaz pie crust mix and pancake flour and ZOOM hot wholemeal cereal) to produce a home mix for Red Lobster's storied Cheddar Bay Biscuits (for which all you add is water and grated Cheddar cheese).

Perhaps it would be cheaper to just use your favourite recipe for baking-powder biscuits to make a cheap and cheerful ersatz therefor, tweaked by the addition of 1/2 tsp. each of garlic and onion powders to the flour, baking powder and salt or baking mix (as you prefer) and, just before adding the old moloko, stirring in a handful of refrigerated shredded Cheddar, Colby-Jack or Mexican blend cheeses and 1/2 tsp. parsley flakes to the flour/baking mix.

Come to think of it, such might be a worthwhile 4-H project to compare relative costs of using Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix and baking biscuits with the old reliable family recipe, tweaked as above. Especially if the desire is to show it at the county fair next summer, perhaps to the point of making it to the state fair.
