Better Angels

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:22 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the peek-a-boo sun shined, cool, casual, marooned island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, The Thirty-First Day of March, 2020, broadcasting LIVE from the southern coast of a salty hamlet and hub, Historic Hyannis, Ocean Street, where eventually the people will return and life hopefully brings some semblance of normalcy;

…if that life ever looks the same again.

341 health care workers in Boston are sick and quarantined, with police, fire and other first responders facing similar fates, begging the question, ‘how are we going to deal with the coming surge of new cases without professionals steering the ship?’

This global pandemic is difficult to wrap one’s head around, for there are so many variables it measures in the Trillions.  Small decisions by citizens, like ’should I go out and get groceries?’, make up most of these and yet we still have no real leadership, coordinated, air tight directives, that may save the lives of countless Americans as we say goodbye to March for this year and hello to April and beyond.  Staffing of these medical centers nationwide will be the story going forward, with the number of deaths reaching 3003 in the U.S. thus far.  Tents in Central Park are being erected, make shift hospitals to help with the overflow at conventional medical facilities, making this all that more eerie.

The citizenry of this great Republic are holding up their end for the most part, staying home; washing hands, social distancing.  But the underlying fear most are feeling at this moment is palpable wherever one may roam, many feeling that helpless limbo of not knowing if they are doing enough, or their government is doing enough, to protect them and their families.

We are all in the same boat.

Aside from the common sense practices aforementioned, please keep in mind that this too shall pass.  Remain strong, vigilant and kind.  ‘At the end of the day’, we, lo, the World, will emerge better for this test, even with the lack of COVID-19 testing, as it forces ALL of US to real eyes just how important ALL LIFE is, bringing our better Angels out en masse…

The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, currently working on another COVID-19 relief bill in Washington D.C., spoke on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” a few moments ago, stating the reality of what we need; testing, testing, testing, PPE and ventilators. Remember and pray for the health care workers in hospitals nationwide, indeed, the grunts, putting their own lives on the line, working exhausting hours, bravely hunkering down in bunkers on the front lines of this strange war that is not only invisible, but savage in it’s effect on older people who are terrified and imprisoned in nursing homes from coast to coast.

No one being by their side in the twilight of their lives. Their sons, daughters, grandchildren and other loved ones cannot visit, as this is now prohibited.  The very people who gave life to those same children years ago, are now left to die a cold and lonely death without the eternal gift of the human touch, little human compassion, devoid of human LOVE.

It breaks one’s heart.

This job must be tackled by intelligent, inspirational, intuitive adults who care more about people than profits. If you are not part of the solution,

you are part of the problem.

Isn’t that right Mr. President?

Embrace the Wild!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 6:22 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the dark, cloudy, damp, mild, mysterious, muted island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this gloomy Monday morning, The Thirtieth Day of March, 2020, broadcasting LIVE from Ocean Street in the predawn hours, awaiting yet another day in paradise, the south shore of Historic Hyannis;

AHOY!

One of the benefits of living on said ocean can be summed up in a word;

serenity.

Walking in silence upon the golden sands of Kalmus Beach, or any one of hundreds of beaches within the expanses of this salty hamlet, ONE with the seagulls, hawks, bunnies, chipmunks, squirrels, ospreys, cardinals, chickadees, whales, dolphins, sharks, seals, coyotes, foxes, wild turkeys, lo, strolling under the towering Willows, Oaks, Norwegian Pines, Sugar Maples, Elms, Beaches, Lindens, Locusts, scrub greens, thickets and amber sea grass flowing in the gentle breeze, gives one pause and brings a sense of belonging, love and peace;

…void of fear, loneliness and social distancing…

The natural real world we ALL share knows nothing of this global pandemonium coming in the form of a virus.  Like said COVID-19, it cares not if you are rich or poor, black or white, male or female.  This new perspective is powerful and persistent, offering clarity of mind, body and soul, for ‘it’ gently reminds everyone who has the patience and real eyes to SEA, every human being is part of this grand genius stroke of a benevolent creator who loves each and everyone if only we reach out and grab it.

Beyond a healthy discipline of hand hygiene, and social distancing, keeping away from large crowds and simply staying home, remember this, you still have ‘time’ to take advantage of the situation, during this pause in the crazy, madcap, kooky, fast paced, digital world we ‘think’ is real, yes indeed, consider embracing this ‘time out’ to remember who you really ARE!

Not the programmed robotic slave to consumption, callousness and over the top cautiousness.

Embrace the wild, be one with the wind, fly with the Osprey, live with the whale.

You might just surprise yourself in the process.

You are never alone…

Have a wonderful week ahead folks!

Dereliction of Duty!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:53 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, mild, breezy, beautiful, bouncy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this lovely Friday early morning here on Ocean Street, Historic Hyannis, The Twenty-Seventh Day of March, 2020; looking forward to some sun shine a little later on today…

AHOY!

The beat goes on, with the latest nonsense coming from “Trump’s Happy Talk Hour” yesterday with ‘Doctor’ Burks backing up this idiot-in-charge, by stating, and I paraphrase, “We have plenty of ICU beds in New York, we have plenty of ventilators, so don’t listen to those true professionals who say they are in dire need of said supplies”; a complete and utter DENIAL of how dire the COVID-19 pandemic-plus the lack of shortages (medical supplies, personnel), to combat it–

truly IS.

New York has lost 430 real lives thus far, with new hot spots coming from every which way.  Boston now has 160 medical professionals infected, with Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, New Orleans, St. Louis, San Francisco, Seattle, rural areas alike will fall prey to this deadly plague, all while this horrible flim flam man ‘in charge’ projecting that everything will be just fine in two weeks, demanding, like a five year old in a grocery store screaming for candy, the U.S. will be open for business and all will be right with the world.

U.K.’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson just announced he is also positive with COVID-19, yet Trump, along with his mouthpiece FOX NEWS, despicable noise machine,  cares more about this economy, that will fall into a deep recession, than he does about real, live, previously healthy human beings, indeed, the life and blood of this great Republic, far more important than this waste of space called “The Donald”.

His epitaph shall be summed up in three words,

‘Dereliction of Duty’.

The out cry from hospitals nationwide is startling, as real doctors, not on a staged, loaded stage filled with stooges in Washington D.C., save Dr. Fauci, are screaming, pleading, begging for HELP from the Federal government, which will most likely not come in time to save the tens of thousands of lives that will be lost.

To watch the hor$e$hit from that White House press briefing room every day is akin to experiencing the sound of someone scratching a chalkboard with their finger nails.  Unpleasant does not even begin to describe the nonchalant, casual, scripted nonsense that emanates from the podium, the ‘bully pulpit’ if you please.   The ‘man’ is a bully, a failed game show host clown, a mutt, a doomed president whose legacy will be one of callousness, carelessness, chaotic, cancerous, caca, with this bright light shining upon his shallow, hollow, haunted intellect, deep paranoia, narcissism, greed and corruption.

People will die needlessly BECAUSE of Donald J. Trump.

It is that simple.

Something must be done, we are NOT powerless, yet WE are witnessing a plane going down, with 55 percent of citizens ‘thinking’ the president is doing ‘a tremendous job’, continuing to listen to this criminal in charge, with one man taking Trump’s advice by ingesting fish cleaning solution.

We have a shortage of doctors, nurses, PPE, gloves, ventilators, testing, tracking, leadership, compassion, empathy, urgency!

Why the president is not enacting the Federal Defense Production Act is beyond this reporter’s comprehension.  He claims that this is a war, and indeed it is, yet he is acting like a man who is put out with all this, his ego answering for him unless his schizophrenia beats him to the punch.

The U.S has just surpassed China with the most COVID-19 cases, with well over 1300 deaths, with the peak three weeks away according to most qualified medical and scientific professionals.  Numbers don’t lie Mr. President, but you do.  This man should not be in charge of anything, save the buffet table at his new job as a bus boy at Denny’s, the only job he is qualified FOR!

God Be With US!

Have a nice, safe, strong, positive week end folks. Watch a movie, play some music, take a walk, offer some kindness to a stranger, loved one or the wildlife that shares this world with US.

S.O.S.!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:07 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the grayish purple skied, windy, cool, cautious, 24 karat island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this fine Thursday morning, six thirty a.m., The Twenty=Sixth Day of March, 2020, a blustery one here on Ocean Street, Historic Hyannis, indeed very quiet and if one listens really intently, one can hear the waves of Kalmus Beach only a football toss from this computer monitor…

AHOY!

About this ‘time’ of year, Sea Cape Cod begs all to ‘come on down’ and pay US a visit.  To date, the Daffodil Day festival on Nantucket was shut down, the Figawi sail boat race from Hyannis to that fabled isle, cancelled, all stores from Falmouth to Provincetown boarded up and darkened, lo, all lights it would seem have been turned off.

The president of this great Republic, and his minions, demons and devils, have made no bones about stating that most senior citizens should sacrifice for the health of the economy.  In other words, grandmothers and grandfathers die, so just suck it up!

This macabre magician steals in scams, sacrifice and deals.  Make no mistake about it, WE are stuck with a dangerous president who does not react to anything but political pressure, self congratulations, propaganda, SELF preservation. Not people over profit.  He does not recognize TRUTH, nor the Almighty, whom will have the ultimate say regarding his ETERNAL future.  His old haunt of New York City, under siege with this virus, now witnessing nurses on the front line in overrun hospitals wearing garbage bags to protect themselves in lieu of a lack of PPE, is about to SEA just how bad this virus will turn out to be…

Even with this passage of a relief bill by the U.S. Senate, the economy will crumble, not because it is shut down, but because this president has surrendered in this ‘war’ via his insistence to reopen the economy, i.e. restaurants, bars, malls, etcetera, infecting more Americans, ultimately bringing more death and despair to people you may know and love.

WE could not have asked for a worse ‘man’ ‘in charge’ of a nation that is in dire straits, begging for leadership, medical supplied, medical personnel, testing, tracking, hospital beds, kindness, compassion, love and light.  New York City COVID-19 deaths rose 110% in the past 36 hours.  The national death number currently stands at 1001, with cases rising exponentially by the hour.  This is a tragedy that never needed to happen.  In 2014 the government stopped the development of anti-corona virus drugs to stop these kind of outbreaks, all due to ‘economic’ reasons.  Just like Trump scrapped, lo, FIRED the infectious disease task force because he didn’t like the way someone spoke to him, rather the lack of praise and celebration for the ‘great’ man he, Donald j. Trump, ‘thinks’ he is.

To suggest that seniors pay the ultimate price for keeping Boeing flying high is nothing short of demonic.  At no time in this country’s deep history has there been more technology, more innovation, more promise for the future than 2020.  Yet, because of a lack of leadership at the top, many people will die needlessly, perhaps on purpose, the economy will drop more points on the major indexes, businesses will go under, people will go hungry, with no S.N.A.P. benefit increases in this most recent corporate bailout, and the Republic as a whole will be significantly weakened, from the military to health care facilities and everywhere in between, leaving US open to many other dangers most are not even considering at this juncture.

Think about it.

Have a super day ya’ll!  Stay safe, stay strong, stay loving, patient and giving….

“If nobody told you they LOVE you today,

I just did!”

Easter Bunny and the President…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:28 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the lightened gray skied, temperate, towering, titillating, touchy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Twenty-Fifth Day of March, 2020, Ocean Street’s quiet Thursday, a quiet seven a.m. morn’, with birds of all feathers singing their Spring song without concern, care or caution.  Embracing this beautiful day holding promise for the future, for it is in them, and all wild children of earth, where OUR hope lies…

Buongiorno!

This just in to Sea Cape Cod, a leaked conversation between our very fine U.S. President Donald J. Trump, former game show host, real estate con man, general tool, yes, this exclusive exchange between the star of Easter, and the apparent “Commander-in-Chief.”

Enjoy!

E.B.: “Howdy high there “The Donald”, may I call you Don?  Matters not, for you are merely a mortal human, where is I am a mythical, magical bunny who delivers, hides, paints and procures mystical eggs as well as candies for children of all ages, reminding all that Spring is the time of rebirth and regeneration, reset and renewal.  Thankfully, with you in charge, it will be a season of regret, regression and rugged individualism, with you’re administration failing the U.S. citizenry in every way possible.  And upon hearing of this deadly virus that is affecting so many of my customers, coupled with the FACT you are doing so little in defeating ‘it’, especially when you wish to open up the country ‘for business’ on my big day, well sir, I am incensed. I am angry, livid and truly pissed off!  Excuse my rabbit anger;

What say you Donald Trump?”

D.T.:  “Hey oooh! Easy there bunny rabbit roo!  I have nothing but good things in store for this great country, I mean, why would I wish anything bad for these little people? They go to my casinos, they voted me into office, they made me even more famous with my hit show on TV called “The Apprentice”, that, ironically, was training for my current career today, they wear my sad, ugly, cheap red trucker’s hats, in fact I love ‘dese people, except for ‘dat Mitt Romney, jeez, I hate that guy and I wish he still had ‘dis virus, cause he is just another Senator who doesn’t die Easter eggs ’cause he’s a Mormon.  What does ‘dat even mean?  Mitt Romney is an enemy and I don’t care if he is negative or positive for COVID-19. Get ‘dat straight.  And I can tell ‘yous ‘dis, I plan to invoke an executive order to ensure all the good Christians will pack the churches and shop, get drunk at your local watering hole, you know, like normal on ‘dat glorious Easter morning.  Go back out to bowling allies, bars, restaurants, malls, parties, you name it.  What do you say about ‘dat you beautiful big, furry, cuddly bunny rabbit?”

E.B:  “Hate to break it to you Mr. President, but I lied to you, just like you have lied to the American people, and I dig that about you man!  I am not the Easter Bunny, well, I am, but I suffer from schizophrenia, and my alter ego, perhaps my true self is far from what you may assume of said Easter Bunny, for my real name is Harvey. I am your imaginary friend who will help you in turning the U.S. into the epicenter of COVID-19, making sure, via your genius executive orders and incredible intelligence, many more people will die than have to.  Your botched leadership will cost this nation not only it’s status as the only super power in the world, but many a fine citizen who dies a needless death.  Don’t fear, for I will be with you, indeed, the giant imaginary bunny rabbit named Harvey is on the case, making sure, via dirty tricks, terrorizing and tainted taunting, you will retain your, with the help of the Russians, “the Russians?”, tragically faulted and failed experience as the President of the United States.  Forget about the experts, your advisors, your so called friends and members of your family, you are mine now and you will do what “I” say!”

D.T.:  “Thank you giant bunny Harvey for this sacred meeting.  I know you are real, even if they can’t SEA you!  You’re right senior rabbit, I don’t care what ‘they’ say anymore, like ‘dat rat New York Governor Cuomo. He is stealing the lime light from me with his well thought out, caring, compassionate, tough minded, logical and focused press briefings! It’s all about him, ‘dat I can tell ’yous!  His intelligent, calm, collected leadership makes me sick to my stomach.  I will not longer listen to what ‘dese experts on my staff, like ‘Fast Eddie’ Fauci, say, like ‘dis is some kind of a hurricane coming on shore. A metaphor ’dat horrible Joe Scarborough is spouting right now.  Listen Joe, ‘dis ain’t no hurricane, it’s just a bad flu, and we don’t shut down the country because of a little rain and wind, after all, it’s just some morning dew…”

E.B., a.k.a., “Harvey” the imaginary rabbit, Trump’s senior confidant::

“Keep it up Donald!  The storm is coming and we, the dark spirits, are all counting on you to nothing but resurrect the Republic for endless consumption and carelessness!”

Have a super day folks, stay safe, stay positive, stay healthy and stay afloat!

Dollars over death…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:03 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the blown driven drizzled, chilly, chatty, cocooned island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this dreary, dark six a.m. hour, broadcasting LIVE from Ocean Street, in Historic Hyannnis, The Twenty-Fourth Day of March, 2020.

AHOY!

Alas, it is yet another day of self quarantine, isolation, fear, frustration and ignorance. All thanks to COVID=19, an acronym, lo, a deadly virus, that has taken over life as we once knew it, indeed an atomic bomb that takes lives, destroys economies, and shifts perspectives.

The latest chapter of the White House produced “Trump’s Happy Talk” droned on and on yesterday, painful as peeling paint, bringing very little in the way of information, applicable data or real guidance, but it did give insight into the insanity and true ignorance of this current president.  Trump has stated under no uncertain terms,

“Yeah, eh ohh, listen, in two weeks we are going to open America back up.  Fuck the experts, ‘dats why “Fast Eddie” Fauci is not on stage, nor the token Surgeon General, ‘dose guys ain’t nuttin’ but doom and gloom.  We gotta get ‘dat 500 billion dollars, cause yours truly is going to be in charge of who get da money and who don’t, capiche?  Forget about ‘dat Ariizona woman who took ‘dis new Malaria Chloroquine stuff, my new miracle cure, too bad about her husband, he died?  Oh, well, gotta break some eggs if you are going to make an omelet! Guess they should not have taken my advise eh?  Listen, everything is going to be just great, we are doing a tremendous job, really terrific, dat I can tell yous!  I mean who dies more?  Auto accidents, da flu, lots of death, more dan dat damn Corona Virus, ‘dat I can tell  ‘yous! And the reality is ‘dis, I am in charge and I say, let ‘er rip.! Trump out!”

This gibberish back ground noise flies directly in the face of prudence, protection and palpable logic.  This idiot-in-charge will put dollars over death, or the very real possibility of it, via loosening social density, thus, spreading the virus exponentially more.  Experts say that 2 million people could lose their life if proper safety measures are not applied as they were in China and South Korea.  Reopening the economy in less than 15 days is, in a word, FOLLY.  Not to mention the confusion it will bring, as millions of Americans struggle with who is telling them the truth and who is lying through his teeth, ever looking for praise, not pause, as this nation flounders in a SEA of ignorance, intolerance and insolvency.

To put it in terms that one can digest, we have a president with a teen age mentality.  No longer able to fill that giant void called EGO, with rallies, flying Air Force One, Mar a Lago, hello!  No sir!  This poor man is all cooped up at the White House and feels suffocated by this new foe that he cannot SEA.  This was supposed to be a great year for Trump, rallying the morons of this nation, God Bless them, but not that much, in his bid to be a two term president.  But instead, it has become a nightmare for the man, with these crazy press briefings serving more as a hostage situation for most of the reporters who are forced to cover this crap.

Opening up the economy in two weeks, is akin to the movie “A Perfect Storm”, where the “Andrea Gail”, famous sword boat (now actually docked here in the Hyannis Harbor named “Lauren”), went down in the Atlantic tragically due to the captain insisting on heading directly into the breach, mostly because he did not want to take a loss on the huge catch he made far from the shores of Newfoundland; a massive storm that took no prisoners…

Gloucester remembered.

We shall SEA!

Have a nice day.

“Blood, toil, tears and sweat…”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:14 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cool, purple skied majesty, magical, miraculous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this somber Monday morning, The 23rd day of March, 2020.  Still dark clouds greet this new day here on Ocean Street, Historic Hyannis, and this humble reporter takes in the “Morning Joe”, only on MSNBC, attempting to wrap his head around the insanity of leadership at the top, revealing that although there may be a light on in the White House this six a.m. hour,

…no one is at home.

We need, according to experts, 3.5 billion masks now, the administration cheering their efforts to create several million.

Well done sir!

The U.S. Senate failed to reach a deal on the new COVID-19 relief bill, with 500 billion in relief for corporations, not enough for the ‘little people’ in this country, thereby Senate Democrats shot it down late last night.  Trump is only interested in getting reelected, keeping the economy afloat long enough for that to happen.  He refuses to invoke the Defense Production Act, giving sweeping powers to create the gear needed to battle this invisible enemy.

500 billion dollar slush fund indeed.

Criminal.

This is a war, but it’s mutating into a chaotic chess match.  Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, a clown’s apprentice, mirrors this vain attempt to ‘help’ the American people with these generous bail outs that serve only to keep afloat the cruise lines, airlines, and other corporate entities, as the nation slips into an abyss;

the deep, dark, daunting waters of OUR ‘time’.

“if you’re here and I’m here, I believe it’s OUR ‘time’”

Right U.S. Senator Rand Paul?

You want to break into the Senate Gym and take a swim? Sets a great example doctor!

WOW!

(credit:  “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, circa 1982)

We could not have a worse president ‘in charge’ at this paramount moment in this great nation’s history.  Trump is no more a leader of men going into battle, than a dolphin is biking the dunes of the Cape.  His insistence that governors take the mantle and ‘find supplies on their own’, sums up the lack of a real foothold into reality when it comes to this tough test for America.

The man may have been tested for the Corona Virus, but has he been tested for schizophrenia?  Let the record show Trump says one thing out of his mouth and acts in a 180 degree contradiction.  This is not leadership, this is insanity.

The markets look bleak this morning, with futures down big time because this bill did not pass, due to, again, the giant slush fund to none other than people like Trump and his horrible hotels around the world.  He will point his bony, old finger at those U.S. governors if this goes south in the next few months, for the economy will follow the health of the people who participate in it.  Thus, the impetuous must be on testing, tracking, self isolation, social distancing, and ramping up our health care centers such as hospitals, where the real battle will be fought.

Not at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

This new ‘reality TV show’, called “Trump’s Happy Time”, on every station, every day, usually around High Noon, if one can sit through the whole thing, will usher in the egregious and error filled nonsense served up by this so called “Commander-in-Chief”, creating fog and folly, not pin point strategy former real generals used in wars gone by.

This man is not fit to be in a war he cannot win.  Many Americans will pay a high price for a sad, tragic, feeble effort of ‘acting’ as though he is a white knight in a battle that has yet begun.  We are at code red, with spring breakers, taking in the beaches of Florida, soon to infect seniors who make up most of the population of that great state.  There is no coordination whatsoever, we are flying blind, bandages here and there, as the nation’s largest metropolitan area, New York City, reaches 10,000 cases, with the mayor, Bill De Blasio, stating they are about to run out of equipment to protect the health care workers, with no real commitment from the Federal government to provide the very basic bullets needed in this fight.

Bluster and bravado will not carry the day, we need a real leader to tackle this from the perspective of REALITY. Slush funds for the cruise lines is an outrage, not to mention all the other pigs at the trough.  If the Senate does not pass this bill, or new bill by High Noon today, there will be hell to pay.  We could lose up to 2 million people, put that in your pipe and smoke it “Joker”…

As the great Prime Minister of Great Britain stated in regard to World War II,

“…it is going to take blood, toil, tears and sweat”.

“I know Winston Churchill sir, and you, you Donald J. Trump, are no Churchill!

Have a safe, positive, powerful week ahead folks!

God Bless!

Silver Linings…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:03 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun led, puffy white cloud decorated, chilly, charming, charity filled island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this 22nd day of March, 2020, a quiet Sunday morning here on Ocean Street, in lovely, yet deserted, Historic Hyannis, with a few souls spinning on by via bike or foot, car or boat, breaking free of the indoors for just a moment in ‘time’ to take in some exhilarating, fresh, cold salt air, hopefully clearing the COVID-19 cobwebs from the collective psyche that has taken hold from coast to coast, continent to continent, ocean edge to oceans’ edges…

Only a month and a half or so ago, ’social distancing’, ‘washing hands’, ’staying home’, ‘quarantines’, cancellations of life events themselves would have been the last thing anyone really expected in this mighty nation called the United States of America.

But, as WE ALL witnessed the effect the Corona Virus was having on China, South Korea and other Asian nations, it became more clear that Italy’s deep suffering could indeed fall upon our shores.  We did not prepare until just a few short days ago, when the Executive began to pull it’s giant head out of the proverbial sand.

Ironic is this pandemic, for again, only a month or so ago, we were practicing social distancing already. Our best friend was the ’smart phone’, all looking down at that tiny screen, hoping to get a like or just ‘reach out and touch somebody’ via a cold, impersonal ‘Tweet’, ‘Text’, ‘E-mail’, ‘Facebook’ post, “Instagram” message, or some derivative therein.

We took for granted a hug from a loved one, a solid, firm handshake, going to opening day at Fenway Park, going out to eat with friends and family, taking in a rock concert from one of your favorite artists who may.

“…never come this way again.”

Now, with those being outlawed by governors, mayors, presidents alike, WE comprehend what we have been missing, which, again, ironically, is bringing out the best in human nature. Our better ANGELS.  For the world has become more compassionate, more empathetic, more kind, more loving than it has been in quiet some ‘time’.  We SEA the importance of the whole, and of the individual parts that make up that whole.  Realizing that ALL of US are an equal and valuable member of this tribe we call the human race.  People notice the homeless more readily now, with many coming to grips with just how lucky they are to not be in that position, viewing their loved one’s with more urgency and love than ever before.

This is the silver lining.

Take advantage of this wrinkle in time, for it will never come again in this life.  A great opportunity to reset, re-prioritize, to remake one’s life into what it should have been all along.  To rediscover who one really IS, not what the world programmed him or her to be.   A life one would be proud to continue on into the mysterious future, devoid of fear, only filled with hope and gratitude for things to come our way in a new and glorious day.

To witness places like New York, Boston, San Francisco, Rome, London, Milan and even here on little old Cape Cod, yes, to SEA the emptiness of the space that once held many a care free soul walking, biking, swimming, or sailing joyfully though life’s endless ocean’s and avenues, beaches and boardwalks, gives one pause.

Reflecting on the fact that you’re all I got.  And being apart from you is painful, sad and sometimes lonely.

Making this new normal just that much harder to bear.

Never give up hope.

For WE will come through this like a ray of sunlight through the fog, and as that ground cloud dissipates, WE will all reenter OUR collective societies a little wiser, a little kinder, and a little more willing to offer the LOVE we all crave to give;

NOW!

Have a blessed Sunday folks, stay strong, stay safe, stay silver!

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the drizzled, dreary, depressing island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this gloomy Thursday morning, The Nineteenth Day of March, 2020, broadcasting LIVE from Ocean Street here in historic Hiyannis’ Waterfront, anticipating some heavy rain during the coarse of the day…

AHOY!

The Corona Virus has moved from warm on the stove to red hot high.  WE have an inept Commander-in-Chief, “Mr. Kung Flu”, who is in way over his head regarding this epic, once in a life time event that is ravaging America from coast to coast, not to mention globally.  Economically, the stock market reflects how confident investors are in this current president, per the fact “Trump’s” Dow Jones, yesterday, lost all of it’s gains since the inaugural, dipping below 20,000, with U.S. futures sharply down today, pushing ‘The Donald’ to revise his game show, I mean presidency’s definition to a macho ‘war time president’, akin to U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

How about Gomer Pyle!

“Supplies, supplies, supplies!”

Testing, ventilators, masks, all PPE’s, respirators, gowns, gloves, hospital beds, swabs, ICU beds, medical personnel, all lacking, disturbingly deep, point to a ship wreck that will rival war time death rates.  Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, begged the question with growing anger,

“Who’s in charge!”

Is it Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, the wonder boy with the sub 100 IQ??

Are you f’ing joking?

He has 0 practical experience in this monumental crisis, or any other, save his marriage perhaps, especially when considering that it, COVID-19, has been likened to a Tsunami, especially when it comes to U.S. hospitals.  If one ‘thinks’ he is FDR, then call up Detroit and make some ventilators WWII style you jack ass game show host! 

“You’re fired!”

Your words Mr. President, the verbiage you used on the ‘pandemic’ department at the Executive level.  Words that have come home to haunt and roost don’t you think? No one in the Trump administration is getting along, back biting and such, thus throwing a monkey wrench into a fantasy called a public/private partnership, creating more problems than solutions…

Currently, because of a lack of masks, the administration is telling medial professionals to use bandannas, “my dirty red bandanna”, hospital gowns, homemade masks in the interim, putting medical professionals at risk big time.  The White House cannot do anything physically.  It’s up to the agencies, hundreds of them, to come to the rescue.

That ain’t happening any time soon.

There will be a 500 billion dollar bailout for the American people who desperately need these monies in order to stay afloat as the ship sinks lower into the cold, rough, dark, daunting, deep waters.  Many small businesses are not going to make it, like the citizens who acquire COVID-19, due to lack of leadership, vision and guts, thereby changing the very face of this great nation.

There is a subtle yet growing anger that could, at some juncture, lead to civil unrest and chaos.

Chilling images of Paris, France, such as the giant rotary around the Arch de Triumph and the Champs Elysees drive this whole fiasco home.  A real ghost town in the ‘City of Lights’, coming to a city near you soon.

Trump recently restated his original, commenting just yesterday,

“…if you are rich and famous, you may have a test.”

  • As this humble reporter took his daily walk around the horn of Kalmus Beach, here in Hyannis, I was struck seeing children playing in the golden sunshine on a beautiful day in March, scratching his head, saying out loud to the seagulls flying about, ‘time’ seemingly out of place;
  • ‘…what day is this?”

We are in a leadership and logistic vacuum with little sunlight to make it’s way through the Hazmat suit.  Liken this pandemic to the Korean War, where M.A.S.H. units played ‘meat ball surgery’, prioritizing patients as to who will live or die, lo, praying a cease fire and ultimately a treaty to arrive and miraculously bring US back to normal.

A normal that may never come again.

Alan Alda, where are you now?

Before you discount yesterday’s blog on Sea Cape Cod, keep this in mind, false flags exist!  Do your own research!  War is a racket to line the pockets of the powers that were! They are started on purpose in order to create vast wealth and POWER! With no care for the citizenry of the nations involved, mostly playing and financing both sides.  Don’t believe everything you read;

or SEA on TV!

The truth is silent, sincere, sacred and consistent.

The truth doesn’t need defending!

Be safe, be strong, be positive!

Have a good day.

“Reality” TV

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:01 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the purple and gray skied, mild, mysterious, magical, marvelous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Saturday morning, The Twenty-First Day of March, 2020, looking out the window to true beauty upon the waters of this little hamlet created so many moons ago by retreating glaciers of another ‘time’ and space…

AHOY!

The new ‘reality’ TV show (brought to you by Monsanto, where good, semi-poisonous GMO food stuffs are never in short supply; if one can call it ’food’; always available at your favorite grocery store, with no worries of shelf life, and after about ninety years can be reused in the garden as weed killer, for after all, that is why Round Up was designed in the first place….), named “Trump’s Trash Talk”, broadcasting LIVE most week days on every station around High Noon, ushered in the old Donald we all know and love, void of humility, honesty, grace, compassion, kindness, empathy and LOVE, “…it’s beautiful”! Taking out his frustration on an unsuspecting reporter from NBC/MSNBC, Peter Alexander.

Sea Cape Cod has attained the alternative realty transcript of what was said in a parallel universe durning the very same press conference. However, in this one the president pointed his long bony finger at the fine journalist asking a soft ball question summed up, “…the American people are scared Mr. President, what can you tell them?”, with ‘The Donald’, face red as a tomato, stating with visible anger in said fat face,

“You are a terrible reporter.”

Going on to say as he continues to wag that dirty little index finger, “…that was a particular nasty question, and you are making the American people even more upset than they already were.” A moment in ‘time’ during this national emergency where the president of these United States could have taken that mantle of leadership and said something like…

“You know Peter, I’m glad you asked that question, you are a terrific reporter, that I can tell yous”, for it seems to me, like our great World War II president Franklin Delano Roosevelt said so many years ago, “…we have nothing to fear, but fear itself.” Indeed very applicable now, March 2020 and beyond…

Without FEAR, simply go forth with your lives, considering the guidelines sent forth by true medically trained, science based professionals who are asking you and yours to keep up social distancing of six feed, washing those hands often with warm water and soap, avoid gatherings and stay at home as much as possible, riding this wave out with your families that you love and care for so much.  Indeed, taking this moment in ‘time’ to reflect on just how lucky We all really are, reaching out to not only our loved ones, but to neighbors, and strangers alike, offering a smile and that socially distant hand to help out in any way you can.  That act of kindness will go a long way.

I know the angst many of you and yours are suffering through these days and I appreciate that. I know we should have taken the tests months ago from the World Health Organization, but we didn’t.  That was my fault and I take full responsibility for that and the lack of testing around the country.  We are working 24 hours a day and night to rectify that fact.  Also, we have evoked the Korean WarWW II style of war time management to retool vacant hospitals, create make shift health care units, ramping up our sincere efforts to create, out of whole cloth, ventilators, while simultaneously mass producing masks, swabs, gowns, PPE’s, and the like so that our brave men and women on the front lines of this fatal virus can be as effective in the fight as is humanly possible, keeping them safe and secure.  Make no mistake about it, the governors of this great land, such as Mario Cuomo of New York, have done to date, FAR more than I, and for that I am eternally grateful.  I plan to give them whatever they need to flatten that bell curve and bring the country back to normalcy as fast as I can as your Commander-in-Chief, a title I do not deserve after that botched job I have done so far.  I ask for your forgiveness in that, although that won’t go far in helping out our fellow citizens in need.  I realize I have been self centered, thin skinned, making this all about ‘me’, and mostly just being a giant asshole that you all know that I most truly AM. However, I’m all you got, God Help US! so I will roll up my sleeves and get to work, keeping my big trap shut and doing what the experts tell me to do, say and act upon in the general concern and care for the American People, in other words, BE a real leader like JFK or FDR, towing the line and keeping my narcissism in the psychiatrist’s office, where it should have been left long ago…”

“Any more questions?”

Have a nice calm, positive, peaceful day y’all and stay tuned to seacapecod.net,

same bat time, same bat channel!

“We’re not a shipping clerk”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:29 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, warming, socially isolated island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Twentieth Day of March, 2020, a quiet Friday six a.m. hour, broadcasting LIVE from Ocean Street here at historically appropriate Hyannis Waterfront…

AHOY!

To rub salt into the nation’s wound, it seems some members of the U.S. Senate have been bad little monkeys, for instead of thinking about the American people, these clowns, such Richard Burr (R-NC),Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), Diane Feinstein (D-/ca), dumping millions, or our old pal James Inhoffe (R-OK), pulling their money out of stocks that would do poorly as the specter of COVID-19 began to make it’s presence known.  In short, insider trading is alive and well for law makers, the rich and the powerful.

Profiting, morally illegal, during an epic, once in a life time national crisis.

Shame on you ALL!

That said, the lies continue at the top, with hospitals crying out for masks, let alone ventilators, gloves, goggles, gowns, swabs, protective equipment, with nurses setting up sewing machines to create their own masks out of whole cloth.  Some using bandanas and scarfs to fill the gap?  This colossal perhaps by design fumble by the Trump administration putting health care workers and everyday Americans at risk, is on par with blind genocide. This insane group of goof balls who claim the mantle of OUR ‘leaders’, will go down in history, this live record of history, as the politicians who left it’s people to die a sad and lonely death, “socially distant” and isolated from the one’s they LOVE. Theirs and their families fate, twisting in an otherwise uncompromising, uncaring and callas wind of folly, futility and fooorget about it!, are in the hands of, ironically, a classic narcissist. A man whose only goal is to hold onto office and bring the market back to it’s peak, only a month ago, of almost 30,000 points, now 19,514…

-33%

Not likely.

This joke of a president is taking first responders out of the fight; doctors, nurses, policemen, firemen, EMT’s, leaving them home in self isolation or worse, turning them into mere spectators, like the current leadership, to the very real possibility that they will witness up to 2.5 million people dying of this viral demon. Hospitals soon to be overrun by a populace in dire need of medical care.  Assuming these hospitals have any supplies to help in them first place.

VP Mike Pence stated yesterday, when asked if masks will be available soon,

“…they’re available now.”

Hor$e$hit!

We own the U.S. post office hello, so, ipso facto, WE ARE A SHIPPING CLERK!

You giant buffoon!

“Eh oh!  Like my new red hat?  It’s made by a sweatshop who makes my stuff via Saks Fifth Avenue, who sadly had to close it’s stores along with Macy’s, what a shame, yeah, so ‘dese guys had the time to make me a special “Keep America Great”, yeah, a hat I wear with great pride, because we have done a tremendous job with ’dis stupid virus ‘ting, you know, da fake news media is taking ‘dis way out of proportion, in fact you should be feeling sorry for me, ’cause dey are a bunch of bullies. But, ‘dats OK, I want you to take notice of my new ‘reality’ show, every station, every day on all ‘da stations, yeah, my words will calm and coerce, showing what kind of a guy I really AM.  I am doing ‘dis new “reality” TV show pro bono, again, proving what a guy I AM.  Did I say we are doing a terrific job?  So what if people need to use a one time only mask for five days, don’t be such a baby!  I haven’t played golf in a week, don’t tell me about sacrifice!  Dis 2400 dollars ‘dat are going to the little people due to ‘dis China Virus, yeah, ‘dese monies will go a long way in helping dose who have lost der jobs and are stuck at home.  We have seen 20 percent unemployment before, suck it up!  Ok, if ‘dere is no questions whatsoever, I must go now, I normally take my afternoon nap at dis time, so if you don’t mind, please listen in to my number three, Jared being the real number two, Mike Pence, who will entertain you with another hour of gibberish, lies, and whoppers, putting you more in the dark with a hint of irony, as more and more people catch ‘dis virus, a fate that was not my fault, my response and complete lack of judgment, clarity, intuition, leadership and over all seriousness regarding this global pandemic is most definitely not my fault, and I take no responsibility for the lack of effort on my part, ‘dat Ian tell yous’…   Trump out!”

Have a nice week end folks;

…be healthy, be strong, be loving, kind and compassionate.

Ushering in Intuition, Consciousness, Enlightenment and LOVE!

Chaotic nodes!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:17 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the star studded, moon lit, cool, clear, calm island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this early Wednesday morning, The Eighteenth Day of March, 2020, another cosmic show here on Ocean Street, featuring Jupiter dancing high in the dark sky with a fat crescent moon, combining with a billion stars showeing their miraculous light down upon this amazing sand bar created by retreating glaciers over 11,500 years ago…

AHOY!

As the nation is gripped with fear over this novel global pandemic named COVID-19, the powers that were are soaking in the glow of this evil intent, soon to be exposed for what it is. The reality is this; testing v. complete shutdown and sheltering in place, is exactly what said nefarious players at the top of the illuminate pyramid were attempting in this game of life or death for ultimate control and power over the people.  These are the same men who are pulling ‘The Donald’s’ strings, and they have something in mind for this great Republic, and it is not good.

One must remember the FACT that this synthetic, man made, planted virus was designed to bring the world to it’s knees.

Create!

Problem? COVID-19, a world pandemic, baby!

Reaction? Fear, confusion, desperation, paranoia and helplessness.

Solution?  Martial Law, FEMA camps, sheltering in place, quarantines, forced vaccinations, death.

In other words, create a problem, evoke a reaction, offer a loaded solution.

U.S. President Donald J. Trump is the perfect man for this Machiavellian script. The lack of testing combined with the shutting down of society as we knew it has provided the platform for more ultimate control over the populace at large.

Think about it.  When is the best time to take power? When the diversion worked.  Albeit a deadly diversion, ’tis true, however, one must keep an open mind, free will intact, for you have that power to think what you will, and thus, do what you will do.

The herding of the masses, keeping them in fear via the media, not all, for some are doing a real civic duty for the people, has been completed, fait accompli. No one is talking about anything but the Corona Virus, that was the whole goal. Those aforementioned “men behind the curtain” have created a perfect storm to keep American citrizens down and out, isolated, paralyzed by fear, predictively programmed by TV ‘at home’, thus, unable to grasp the enormity and true nature of this man made crisis. Hijacking those masses, manipulating most into a,

deaf, dumb and blind mindset…..

Willing to do whatever the ‘authorities’ tell one to do, regardless of your God given gut instinct.

Indeed, this simple FACT will come out in future history books, but for now, it is yet another ‘conspiracy theory’.  There are many conspiracies that are not a theory.  This is one of them.  The lack of testing, the lack of proper medical gear, the lack of health care providers, the lack of ‘time’, the lack of true reporting, the lack of real leadership, what a joke, the lack of hope, the lack of basic goods that sustain 330 million real live people, all add up to a turn of the tide, changing the way WE once lived, loved and thrived forever.

The only way out is through.  So go forth without fear, armed with knowledge and the courage and conviction of your own soul, heart, mind and spirit.  ‘They’ have no power, like the so called wizard in the classic 1938 film, “The Wizard of Oz”. Lots of loud noises, flashing lights, smoke and mirrors embody the sorcerer’s arsenal, creating that diversion to deliberately manipulate, evoking FEAR, thus, compliance and caution.

Can someone say Martial Law?

‘Sure, I knew you could!’

Check points, sheltering in place, rationing of food, medicine, medical equipment, lack of testing, hospital beds, cancellation of events across the board, and a deepening depression on the horizon, both personal and national, will be the watch words for the foreseeable future.

We are at war, but not with a synthetic killer, no sir!  We are in a spriitual war with the powers that were, and as I “sit by the dock of a bay”, that Divine LIGHT will shine through.

TRUTH will SEA it’s DAY!

Have a safe, positive, powerful one America!  For you are much more than what you have been programmed to ‘think’ you are!

Think outside of the box that has been created just for you, created, out of whole cloth.

Chaotic nodes indeed!

“10″

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:13 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the dark, cool showered, sheltered, sober island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this drizzly mixed up Tuesday morning, The Seventeenth Day of March, 2020, broadcasting LIVE from Ocean Street here in Hyannis, well before dawn’s arrival.

AHOY!

The U.S. President Donald J. Trump ‘did a good job’, tearing a rotator cuff patting himself on his own back at the same time, yesterday at a White House press conference, as the Dow Jones dropped nearly 3000 points, 13%, worst drop since 1987; speaking with more urgency and seriousness, bringing more Americans on board to the FACT of just how dangerous this virus truly is. Giving himself a ‘10′ out of 10 regarding his and his admiration’s efforts in taming this vicious Tiger was a bit of a stretch, however at the same time, he suggested that no more than 10 people gather together due to COVID-19’s extreme contagious nature.

Seeming to indicate he may just now be getting it.

Perhaps rising above his need to be praised for any action regardless of it’s importance to the rest of US.

Some U.S. governors however. around the country, are scratching their collective heads, when the president also  hinted that ’they were on their own’, ‘try getting those ventilators, respirators, medical safety equipment by yourselves’. Making the whole fiasco just that much more bizarre, as Americans walk around in a deep fog of fear, confusion and trepidation.

With U.S. hospitals shaking with terror at the tsunami headed their way…

When you SEA bars, restaurants, clubs, gyms, movie theaters, schools, colleges, the world of sports, you name it, going dark on this St. Patrick’s Day, it should send chills down your spine and yet may also serve to wake some of the snoozing citizenry of this great Republic. For when everyday life is turned on it’s head, that song of sorrow will come in the form of a somber trumpet playing “Revelry” just before the sun rises, prompting tough troops to get up and get at it.

WE are all the same boat;

everyone doing their part to be a part of the solution;

not a part of the problem.

The legend of St. Patrick driving the snakes from Ireland could be used as a metaphor to define this crisis. We must all act like this Englishman, ironically, taking these suggestions, offered by the experts, seriously;

and acting on them accordingly.

May you have a ‘10′ today, in heart, mind, body and spirit.  This great state of Massachusetts’ motto is “The Spirit of America”. Hopefully, in some small, yet powerful way, that sentiment will sit like the morning dew on every deep green four leaf clover you SEA,

setting each and every one of you;

FREE!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

“The Twilight Zone”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:21 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the starry, crescent moon lit, chilly, socially distant island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this somber Monday morning, The Sixteenth Day of March, 2020, the Republic facing a new reality that seems like an episode from the mid 20th Century, “The Twilight Zone”…

The U.S. President, whose name I will not utter on this watery essay, continues to spout happy talk regarding a scary virus that has turned the World on it’s very axis.  Beginning a press conference over the week end by speaking of interest rates and CEO’s…  Jesus. The entire country is under a state of emergency, yet the recklessness of these idiots in ‘charge’, with an “R” next to their soiled name, via their raucous rhetoric and foolish actions, let alone folly disguised as good advise, like going out to eat, or have a drink at the bar, propels one to consider the FACT that these mostly men have indeed visited that place beyond space and time, obviously leaving their common sense, decency and leadership behind in that black void of nothingness.

Oy vey!

This humble reporter took a stroll around Hyannis yesterday, Cape Cod’s largest town, walking up Main Street, normally bustling with people, dogs, kids, with high hopes of the advent of Spring on a sunny High Noon Sunday, yet, there was no one about.  Restaurants closed, bars closed, shops closed.  The lack of cars all across the sand bar were clearly in lack, with the one lone exception being of a cosmic nature, the shop’s sign reading “Instant Karma”;

an interesting notion of the future and what will actually be the fallout from the outbreak of COVID-19.

The World Health Organization offered the Corona Virus test to Trump at the onset of it’s ominous prescience; he refused.  Leading up to his most recent comment this week end when asked at a press conference, if he had any responsibility regarding the pandemic. ‘The Joker’ stating,

“No, I take no responsiblitiy at all.”

Keeping in mind his horse hockey only weeks ago, when he infamously said,

“..if you want a test, you can get a test.”

Leaving health care workers on the front line in danger, and if they go….

One must wonder what Trump’s Karma will end up being ‘at the end of the day’…

If you wish, dear sir, to improve your odds on that fateful destiny, put money in people’s pockets.  Do not let this virus compound with citizens out of work, left not being able to put food on the table, pay their rent, pay for medicines or buy clothes for their kids.  This is real and you better;

wake to F up!

The Federal Reserve cut it’s rate to O, but it will do nothing to help small and large businesses, employees told to stay home, with demand for services, like air travel, down sharply.  This hints at a coming recession, for with no businesses doing business, the economy will suffer.  Congress should not give a pay roll tax cut, that will not help everyday people, no sir! It will only give to the wealthy, this U.S. Congress should be thinking along the lines of a rebate, infuse CASH into society, amidst a complete economic meltdown.

WE as a nation, have never seen anything like this.  No sector of society will be untouched by this global pandemic.  No one really knows how deep it will hit America, an economic crisis much worse than 2008 or 911?  Consumerism has moved back home and did not leave the light on.  Where it spends nothing, thus, hammering “Frozen 2″ into place for the foreseeable future.

Most of the citizens of this nation do not dine with “The Donald” at Mar a Lago, no, most resemble a single, working mom whose waitress position was just vacated, leaving her struggling to cope with her 7 year old daughter who counts on those hours in class for basic life giving sustenance, via school breakfast and lunch. Let alone, attempting to educate her with no broadband or a skill set to instruct, in fear of paying rent and all alone, barricaded in a small apartment that offers no love, only a barrier to a very contagious Corona.

Thanks for the day at Disney World yesterday with NO  adherence to ’social distancing’, with the park crammed to the brim with people.  Lest we forget, Chicago’s O’Hare’s Airport, as over 40.000 people coming back from Europe, crammed into that small space on the terminal as they are processed.

Great job Doanld!

The brash, boastful, arrogant attitude of this so called president offers NO real leadership save his choice in

Doctor Anthony Fauci;

whose real, frank, blunt talk about this epic crisis, on the Sunday morning talk shows, proved palpable, provable, proof positive of what WE are really up against.

“…it will get worse before it gets better.”

Incompetence has nothing on Donald when it comes to real leadership.

Mr. President, please consider putting the market aside, tell the truth and focus of doing what’s RIGHT.

You’re legacy will be written as such, keeping in mind that every action has an immediate and concrete,

REACTION!

“We have it under control”.

Have a nice day and week ahead America, Italy, Spain, France, Sweden, Norway, indeed, the whole of Earth.

Stay healthy, stay courageous, stay loving.

For, ‘at the end of the day’, all WE really have is each other.

This too shall pass!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:49 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the clear blue dawning, cool, calm, 24 Karat gold island of Nantucket! Very good to be with you on this Fourteenth Day of March, 2020, broadcasting LIVE on this surreal Saturday morning here on Ocean Street nestled upon the hallowed shores of Historic Hyannis, hoping you and yours are safe and well stocked up, as;

“…we sail on into the mystic……”

Scenes now playing out all over the world, including here in this country, where cities, suburbs and villages have become ghost towns, like New York City, with 400 new confirmed cases, hence it would appear that people heeding the warnings regarding COVID-19;  it’s novel nuisance sparking wide shortages of food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizers, you name it.  Lines were long at most grocery stores as a panic buy grips the country.

The U.S. President spoke at the White House yesterday in the Rose Garden, with a slew of his ‘Corona Virus’ team members at his back.  Continuing on with the familiar narrative that ‘all is well’, ‘things are going smoothly’, ‘we have done a wonderful job’…

Oh, and the classic all time favorite we all know and LOVE, “it’s beautiful!”;

“If you want a test you can get a test”.

Would you just accept that?

“There is no “I” in “T.E.A.M.”! Of course, that colloquialism applies not so much to me, The Donald, for I am a God at SEA sir!”

Meanwhile, in the real world, many are coming to terms with the FACT that this GLOBAL viral pandemic will get worse before it gets better.  Like most viruses, a graph shows a bell curve, with a giant spike and a gentle hill.  It all depends on how we mitigate the problem.

“What problem?”

As events, conferences, schools, professional sporting venues, colleges, even small gatherings are shut down, postponed, delayed, such as the Boston Marathon yesterday, Americans wait in fear and trepidation of what is to happen next.

It’s almost as if the ‘end of the world’ just occurred and everything has gone silent.

Of course, this virus will run it’s course, and upon reaching the end of it’s ravage, the world will never really be the same.

But, rest assured, this too shall pass.

Whether this newest virus was weaponized, planted by nefarious military/intelligence forces remains to be seen, if ever, matters not presently.  We must care for ourselves, selfishly and unselfishly, by practicing pristine hand hygiene, social distancing, awareness of our surroundings, and using common sense to go about OUR daily lives, in a clearly different country than it was only a month ago.

WE are all in the same boat.

Who would have thought Broadway would go dark?  The Master’s PGA golf tournament would be cancelled?  St. Patrick’s Day parades given a “Big Book” to cease and desist from marching and/or drinking green kegs filled with boozy beer?  That colleges like Harvard would shut down it’s campus, prompting the majority of colleges to do the same.  Schools around the nation shut down, except here in Boston where Mr. Walsh thinks Roxbury, don’t count…

Precisely the point.

Low income, older and poor people will be affected the most.  Because we have such a lousy health care system that gives only to those who can afford it, we shall SEA many casualties from this sector of society, and for that, we should all be ashamed.  We are only as strong as our weakest link, and this disease takes into account no preference for who it kills and who it leaves alive.

The U.S. House of Representatives sent the first of hopefully many bills to the U.S. Senate yesterday, to fast track some relief to these vulnerable human beings, of whom may have lost their jobs and many soon will, as the Republic dips into a deep recession, indeed the World at large experiencing something not yet seen in this new digital age of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

If President Trump does not sign this bill into law, without the caveat of ‘prid quo pro’, via his bloody payroll tax cut, he will finally have, like the Roman Pilot, as sung by the great Rock Band, “The Rolling Stones”;

“…washed his hands and sealed his fate.”

Can ;you guess my name?

Have a nice Saturday folks, stay healthy, stay safe, and for God’s sakes, stay away from panic or depression.

For this too,

shall,

pass.

Sorry, but we’re closed!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:30 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, windy, soon to be quite rainy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this blustery Friday, The Thirteenth Day of March, 2020, awaiting some moisture from above a little later on, with mild temperatures as has been the rule for most of this Winter.

“Did you want to talk about the weather or just chit chat?”

Unless you have been living under a rock, most people in high politics would agree that would include our very fine U.S. President Donald J. Trump, whose loose lips sink ships rhetoric has put this great nation at risk to repeat the nightmare Italy is experiencing right NOW, yes, unless you have been doing some spelunking for an extended period of ‘time’, you are well aware of just how serious this whole situation IS.

The depth and scope of the cancellations, suspensions, confusion, frustration and overall angst in every sector of our society regarding this novel global pandemic is difficult to calculate, let alone, SEA into the future of how these epic hits on our overall economy will be, is staggering.  The New York Post, famous for it’s sometimes over the top cover front page headlines, offered this yesterday,

“…sorry, but we’re closed.”

Summing it up for Italy to be sure, as 60 million people ’shelter in place’, but also here in the U.S., colleges, schools, professional sporting leagues, Broadway, the list goes on, are shutting their doors, in sometimes a vain attempt to slow this bloody thing down.  Hospitals take notice of said European country, for that fate is washing up on your shores soon.  The economy is reeling, with stocks falling over 9 percent yesterday, the Dow jones Industrial losing 2300 points plus on that same ‘time’ period, the worst drop in stocks since 1987.

It is hard to say where this is headed, as previously stated, especially when we do not have proper tests available and most certainly no where near the number WE need in order to KNOW who is affected and who is not.

Again, looking above deck at the John F. Kennedy’s Memorial here on Ocean Street, it demands the question;

“…where is the leadership, where is the empathy, where is the true adult in the White House?”

March “madness”…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 4:35 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the star lit, dark, cool, moon shined island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this 12th day of March, 2020, Thursday, broadcasting LIVE at the Hyannis Waterfront, busy digesting ‘reality’ regarding the past 24 hour fall out from the global pandemic called COVID-19, a novel virus that cares nothing for politics nor Tweets.  Beyond containment, this slippery strain is already in the house, and now it is all about mitigation.

President Donald spoke to the nation last night, at least admitting there was a global pandemic, speaking of travel bans and hinting at tax cuts no one is advocating, yet not addressing the meat and potatoes that is needed for said mitigation to slow the spread of Corona. He did not speak of testing per say, nor aid to families in need of financial/food help from the Federal government.  School after school is being shut down, colleges telling it’s students to go home and learn on line, “March Madness” NCAA basketball tournament has been cancelled, the NBA has suspended it’s season, indeed all major sporting events are now under the gun.

This virus hit home when Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, confirmed that they have tested positive after visiting Australia.  The questions swirl in the air, with few answers being offered.  No one knows, including the World Health Organization, where this is going, but one thing is for sure, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Buckle up.

Hospitals may be creamed in the next week, looking at Italy as a model, for it is coming and we must face it with courage and conviction.  We need the testing, we need to ready these hospitals yet there is no uniform effort to treat these future patients with prudence and effectiveness, not to mention empathy.

So as Donald was speaking this past evening, World markets quivered, and the Dow Jones Industrial, falling another 1460 points yesterday, with futures looking grim today, may SEA record losses again and again and again…  After losing 20 percent from it’s high of a little over 29,000 points only a month ago, the 11 year bull market has been traded in for a bear.  We have a president that is far more interested in these markets than he is to the well being of the every day man, woman and child whose lives are being turned upside down, falling on their collective heads.

A simple public relations political issue is how the White House views this crisis.

Meetings with Bank CEO’s?

Really?

“The Emperor” has no clothes.

Yet he believes he does.

Have a positive day, pray for those who have been affected, and empower yourself with knowledge;

keeping the FAITH all the way.

W.H.O. knows?

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:08 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again still star lit, windy, clear, cool, casual island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Eleventh Day of Match, 2020, another Wednesday in paradise on the Hyannis Waterfront, looking upward and onward, remembering that one’s life is one’s vibration,

vibration is one’s life.

Hopefully good vibrations ,

if you catch the drift.

It seems the democratic nomination is all but a look in the rear view mirror.  Joe Biden, former VP, won last night in Tuesday’s primaries in Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, and Idaho.  Bernie Sanders, the great Senator from the equally great state of Vermont took North Dakota, with Washington still too close to call.  Steve Kornacki, MSNBC political guru, went to the ‘big board’ this morning on “Morning Joe”, explaining the whole affair with wicked clarity.  Even with Bernie’s genuine heart, it might not be enough to defeat a corrupt ‘idiot-in-chief’, Donald J. Trump come November. For it is in Biden’s experience at the Federal level, that perhaps exemplifies the best chance for this Republic to gain a moral foothold into what this country used to represent.

Indeed, at one juncture, was the envy of the World.

We shall SEA!

The Corona Virus pandemic is not showing any signs of slowing down, as I’m sure you are all aware.  Save Mr., Trump, who still believes in the tooth fairy, Santa and the Easter Bunny.  Yesterday Italy shut the whole country, 60 million people, down, turning Rome, MIlan, Venice, the Vatican, and rural villages into eerie ghost towns, with 168 deaths posted in that same ‘time’ period.

In this nation, more cancellations of large events continues, such as in this neck of the woods, where the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston has been cancelled with perhaps the Boston Marathon being next.  Game shows like ‘Wheel of Fortune’ are playing without their normal live studio audiences, a trend that may continue on into giant sporting events, like they have in Europe, where soccer matches, normally loud and full of energy, are replaced by empty, hallowed seats, with crickets chirping in the night’s somber air.

There are still a lot of good, hard working Americans who support our current president.  Blindly following folly into the fray.  But when some of them wake up and smell that proverbial coffee, it may just put Joe over the top and right this ship, like the Grand Princess, that is drifting aimlessly amongst the Sea Lions, Blue and Gray Whales off the coast of San Francisco, bringing it under the Golden Gate Bridge to safety once again.

Who knows?

Have a wonderful day everybody!

Mirror, mirror; on the water…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:35 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun lit, mild, magical, marvelous island of Nantucket! It is the Tenth Day of March, 2020, a quiet Tuesday morning, honored to be broadcasting LIVE from Ocean Street, nestled here at the Historic Hyannis Waterfront;

where Osprey’s fly high and tourists do sigh…

AHOY!

Good to be with you on this bright, beautiful, blue day about to unfold.  It’s difficult to tune into ye ‘ole “TV” these days, for it is not necessarily good for your health, as Joe Scarborough, co-anchor of the great morning show called “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, stated just this morning, speaking directly to ‘The Donald’ who is apparently leaving Fox and Friends for greener pastures…

This is the only morning cable news show worth it’s salt.

In regard to the major story of 2020 and beyond, ‘COVID-19′, has overtaken the global narrative.  The only person who doesn’t understand this is OUR fine U.S. President Donald, “The Joker”, Trump, whose focus is not on the American people, indeed, throwing them under a bus’s tress, but on himself, nothing more, nothing less.

50 million people died in 1918 due to a pandemic, and yet, this idiot-in-charge is more focused on said cable morning television show via his viral “Tweets” than providing real leadership in stemming the spread of this current deadly pandemic that could rival historical events that took so many lives so many moons ago…

In the immortal words of Mr. Scarborough,

“…stop watching “Morning Joe” Mr. President, it’s bad for your health.”

This humble reporter begs the question, does Mr. Trump have a magical mirror on his ‘Wall’, and if so, does he wake in the morning, after watching Mika, Joe, Willie and the rest of the crew, indeed, does he ask his faithful friend;

“…Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose the game show host with it all?  I may be president yes, but I say I’m a genius, and I do not jest.  Will I be a one term guy at the top, or will I prove them ALL wrong by going to shop?

Is this virus plotting against me, and my political future hanging in eternal limbo?

A recession taking me out, like so much garbage, in the muddy waters of human innuendo?”

Please let me know via Tweet,

and, for the Love of God, say something Sweet.”

:Love and Kisses Donald, you old SEA dog you!

Scallywag, swindler, sad, sorry, suck up,

whose only goal is to maintain and contain his giant, over bloated, obtuse, and ever overriding,

EGO.

Have a nice day y’all!

Head in the sand…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 6:57 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the clear dawning, still star lit, sandy shore of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this glorious Monday morning, The Ninth Day of March, 2020, with mild temperatures greening another brand new day here on Ocean Street; Hyannis Waterfront’s sacred statement.

I use the word “sacred’ for it is home to OUR late, great 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, whose memorial, adjacent to Veterans Beach Park, is a reminder to ALL of what a truly great president, whose real leadership kept World War III from happening, perhaps saving millions of lives;

real human lives,

can do,

or at least try to do.

Corona translates into a mysterious ’Crown’ in Latin.  WE have a current U.S. president who believes, “BEAUTIFULLY’, that he is a King.  A quarter of Italy’s population is under quarantine, more than 16 million people, 133 deaths in one day, and this disaster of a ‘leader’, “The Joker”, Trump keeps his big, fat head in the sand, leaving mudded, nonsensical gibberish for US ALL to choke down our collectives throats, leaving Americans in danger.

He cares nothing for them, only golf, food, the market, his political future.

“Wile E. Coyote”‘, “super genius”, has nothing on this beauty.

“It’s beautiful”.

Ben Carson, alleged MD, spoke on ABC’s “This Week” yesterday gave us a clue how inept administration really is.  A cruise ship off the coast of San Francisco, a floating viral prison, is finally docking in Oakland today.  When asked what the Trump plan is to deal with perhaps half of the boat of over 3000 souls positive for COVID 19, Ben yawned and stated,

“…that’s tomorrow?”

The World has a crisis on hand, a global pandemic, that is being ignored by OUR so called “Commander-in-Chief”, a man who lies when he also falsely stated this week end at press conference at the dead beat CDC, “If you want a test, you can have a test”.

As his giant, ugly nose grows exponentially as fast as this deadly virus that has not even gotten warmed up.

Head in the sand indeed.

God be with US.
