18h30 UTC; WEDNESDAY, 17 DECEMBER 2014: Given the "pay-to-play" mentalities which "Tea Party"-deluded governors in the several states have when it comes to jobs creation (thereby raising questions in and of themselves about possible corruption, illicit slush funds, "Rice Pudding Time" and other illegal or questionable tactics expected to be excused as being For God and Country), Your Correspondent would have to be the first to wonder whether these same governors' "jobs creation" approach towards such deemed "chronically and habitually government-dependent" (in particular such deemed beyond the hope of any Reddingadaad-stylee campaigns of "people-centred" socioeconomic "empowerment," including National Minorites) is one expected to sanction so-called "network/multi-level marketing" schemes of the sort which rely on building downline rather than selling viable products or services to consumers.

The sort which tend to deliberately target lower-income and socioeconomically-marginalised communities with limited realistic socioeconomic prospects under current socioeconomic paradigms, unlikely to see any serious jobs creation even with a Reddingsdaad approach to socioeconomic empowerment essentially under State sanction, but operated as a wholly non-governmental campaign (especially where such operates as a coerced "social responsibility" exercise involving Wall Street bankers and brokerages).

The sort whose payout models, be they of the Fibonacci, Aussie Two-Up, Cycler, Forced Matrix or Binary sort, are deliberately and willfully manipulated (with official endorsement, we may assume) so that the "REAL AmeriKKKan" officially, theoretically even, expected to be so "empowered" is unlikely to profit in any way, shape or form whatsoever. (Such models also likely to be deployed through "cashflow gifting" schemes given similar official imprimateur as a "people-centred" reinvention of social welfare "producing taxpayer value." As well, the manipulation of the payout structure could be officially excused as being "consulting fees" or somesuch Mickey Mouse.)

And expected to be promoted through Vocational Guidance Counsellors (f/k/a Welfare Case Managers), themselves expected to act in a mentor role (and with the state paying enrollment fees, subsidising "front-loader" purchases of "starter kits," &c., for such targeted).

The which, far from "helping the poor to help themselves," should raise questions of whether the Good Taxpayers are actually getting value for money in the long run.

In closing out this post, readers, a couple things I need bring up at this time:
  • First, I need to apologise to Disney's Kim Possible for this blogger's fetish of late for entitling posts with the "So the--" prefix made infamous with that "So the drama" catchphrase of Ms. Possible.
  • If you don't notice any posts on the morrow, reader, it's because his online time is likely to be all the more limited what with a bus trip on the evening to see the Rotary Lights in LaCrosse with his housing project, such leaving about mid-afterlunch.
  • And if you don't start seeing posts from here on out (at least through the Christmas/New Year's fortnight), please to think of it as my going into holiday-related hiatus, the better to allow for Your Correspondent to recharge and reassess his blogging options in the New Year. Hence, don't cry for moi in the meantime.
Otherwise, Your Correspondent wisheth to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support of this very blog in this past year, and to wish you the best of whatever you may observe at this time of year, be it Hanukkah, Festivus, Christmas, Kwanzaa or New Year's. And that you'll celebrate responsibly and in moderation.

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