Truer words were never spoken as would apply in these Interesting Times.

18h03 UTC; TUESDAY, 22 JULY 2014: With Texas Governor Rick Perry's playing the "states' rights" canard in calling forth the Texas Army National Guard in patrolling the USA-MEX border in a "preemptive" capacity against the influx of legitimate young refugees from the Central American states of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, Your Correspondent is one to wonder if Perry's hoping for especially sadisto Guardsmen with racist, white-nationalist--and, even better yet, "Christian"--tendncies reinforcing all.

Not to mention emulating the tactics of the Suid-Afrikaanse Polisie back in the Luscious Glory of apartheid, in particular at Sharpeville and Soweto in their Luscious Glory of racist sadism excused as serving God and Country, not to mention the memory of their Voortrekker forebears.

With conflicting signals being sent by two court decisions this very morning over the status of Federal subsidies to help with purchase of health cover per Obamacare (the first such contending that eligibility therefor was based on a careless misuse of the term "State" in the enabling legislation), there can be no doubt that the very forces of Zealotry and True Belief opposing the Affordable Care Act are drooling in their Luscious Glory, hoping to use such (so long as the Supreme Court doesn't intervene beforehand) as a casus belli to push for voucher-based models driven solely by the Invisible Hand of the Marketplace in its Natural Role and Place of Interconnexion Unto Our National Character, Unity and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations as of His Grace and Favour in replacement.

Especially so for Medicare and Medicaid, unaware that many such so dependent are incapable of making sound and wise decisions in the consumer marketplace without undue exploitation, manipulation or fear. Which is basically what the "Tea Party" element so desires in calling for a self-regulated approach for marketing health cover qualifiying for voucher-based payments, based solely on "prevailing best practices" as could actually be code for cartel behaviour under State sanction (and perhaps subsidy).

Which seems to be the rule here in the Minnwissippi today
(and thankfully, today's the last time for some while in this regard).

If there's one thing conservative Zealotry and True Belief of especially the "9/12" model would love to see, it would probably have to be using Detroit as a test laboratory for the concept of deploying the "people-centred" ideal of Reddingsdaad, after the Afrikaner Ekonomesie Beweging per the Proceedings of the Eerste Ekonomesie Volkskongres at Bloemfontein, South Africa in October 1939, for socioeconomic as much as moral rescue of a "culturally-deprived" community and a "morally sunken" people.

Provided such was founded on an equally-people-centred concept of Volkskapitalisme as the (theoretical) foundation therefor.

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