18h45 UTC; THURSDAY, 2 JANUARY 2014: As if conservative designs on seeking to undermine the "morally superior" AmeriKKKan socioeconomic model of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe through sabotage or worse weren't successful enough, what with the Dow Jones Industrial Average of 30 prominent shares gaining 30% in value over the year 2013 (not to mention 52 new record closing highs throughout), Your Correspondent has to wonder if especially "Tea Party" sympathisers are bound to start resorting to the crudest in anti-Semitic prolefeed tropes in a Luscious Glory of oversimplification as fails to consider the facts.

An anti-Semitism in pure, unadulterated Protocols of Zion stylee which suggests "unhealthy and disproportionate to actual population numbers" Jewish control and dominance of the banking and financial sectors "to the harm and detrius of Bible-Believing Christians," the "REAL AmeriKKKans" such elements claim to be the Voice and Conscience of as if seeking to divert their attention from an enforced poverty, fecundity and ignorance thus prevalant. And yet not being too clear in insisting what exactly constitutes "Christian" models of banking and finance beyond the most basic tropes about the need to develop a new, "people-centred" model of Christelike Ekonomesie Vryheid By Any Means Necessary, never mind that the end result is likely to be closer to the crony capitalism as prevailed in apartheid South Africa, born, as it was, out of a Luscious Glory to Save the Afrikaner Volk from Themselves (especially by pandering to manufactured delusions of National Unity and Identity predicated on "race honour" and "Biblical Identity").

And which needs challenging should it get all the more obnoxiously blatant and jingoistic.

Meanwhile, up in the Great White North, Your Correspondent has to wonder if the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), the public broadcaster north of the 49th, is so overzealously conscious of its image and repute that their employees have to put in a $1 "Loonie" coin into a "swear jar" at its facilities across Canada if caught referring to their employers as the "Canadian Broadcorping Castration", itself a somewhat sarcastic nickname therefor as supposedly originated on air back when its English-language radio services were divided into the Dominion and Trans-Canada networks (as in the announcer's billboard "This is the Dominion Network of the Canadian Broadcorping Castration").

And the proceeds of these Canadian Swear Jars being used, more than likely, to sustain otherwise unprofitable radio and TV programmes over the CBC as nonetheless have substantial loyalty among listeners and viewers, as the case may be (especially so considering that in 1974, its radio services scrapped all advertising as part of a major programming overhaul).

Staying with The True North, Strong and Free, for the nonce, Your Correspondent could just imagine where certain Canadian broadcasters, given what amounts to an overbearing unease over cartoon violence imported from the United States in the interest of Protecting Royal Canadian Sensitivities in the Name and Interest of Her National and Sovereign Identity Antient and Peculiar, might consider cutting short certain specimens of especially the Merrie Melodies/Loony Tunes animated shorts where the old ultraviolence, though comedic, is somehow imminent (e.g., just before the imminent explosion goes off) and, following a brief pause, playing the most obnoxiously strident rendition of "O Canada" available, after the stylee of such versions used at sign-off--and hoping not to attract complaints about such renditions "showing irreverent contempt or disrespect towards national symbols" extending, obviously, to the red maple leaf flag, the loon, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canadian Pacific Railway, the aforementioned Canadian Broadcorping Castration, Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Quebecoise devotion to La Bonne Sainte-Anne such as manifests itself at the Basilica of Ste.-Anne-de-Beaupre, Hockey Night in Canada, the Trans-Canada Highway--well, you Canadian readers will probably get the idea.

To be subsequently replaced, more than anything, by some choice specimen of animation via the National Film Board of Canada.

As for the notion certain conservative Zealots/True Believers have about military personnel being "expected to show greater personal responsibility" for their retirement savings and pensions through sequestration-driven cuts in service pensions, both actual and suggested, Your Correspondent has to ask if such is actually a back-door attempt at privatising government employee pensions with an eye towards outright privatisation of State Social Security.

Not to mention failing to consider where most of those in active-duty military service tend to come from lower-income or socioeconomically-disadvantaged communities and backgrounds, not to mention their lacking any power or capacity for making sound or wise investment decisions in the equities markets as would play a major role therefor without being taken undue advantage of (especially with the potential for being offered inapproriate or unsound investment products under the influence of commissions being offered salespeople under pressure to "meet sales quotas" ... not to mention the risk of such being targeted for frequent "churning" tactics to maximise sales commissions at the expense of the vulnerable).

Finally, a new feature in the Online Mall you'll want to check out: My adding a section in the sidebar as will give you the latest in special offers, coupons and deals as may be of interest to you from some of Your Correspondent's affiliated e-tailers (to be updated as required). I trust you'll like it--perhaps like it enow to have the Online Mall bookmarked(!!) in your web browser for ready reference to catch the latest such.
