Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, the eleventh day of October, 2011, roughly 6 a.m. or so, a warm start to the day again, as we here on Cape, as well as most of New England, have seen record temperatures for this time of year, an Indian Summer to be remembered for sure… It is Day 25 of “Occupy Wall Street”, the organic, real (as opposed to the fake Koch Brother’s/corporate tea party) grassroots movement that has caught FIRE across this great land of ours, speaking to the “BIG LIE” promulgated by ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’, which is, of course, that the whole problem of our government revolves around regulations and taxes, both of which are not wanted by the current puppet show, rather, not wanted by the people who pull their strings, for those functions of a healthy government only stand in the way of ‘progress’, progress, as defined by the plutocratic ruling class as being the complete and utter destruction of the middle class via various ’shock therapies’, one of which was the predatory housing bubble, brought on by the casino-like derivatives market Wall Street has turned into, the globalization of labor/manufactured goods , and the obliteration of the concept of ‘one person, one vote’ (what the plutocrats are REALLY afraid of) via the tough new ‘voter ID laws’ that were put in place in 37 states, after the 2010 republican landslide elections results, not to mention destroying OUR actual living environment by taking out the teeth of the EPA, and punishing the poor by taking away the safety nets that allow those ‘little people’ to eat more than once a week. Good luck tonight at Dartmouth College boys, and gal, you are going to need it! The big lie of trickle down economics, or voodoo economics, and the ever vocalized mantra spoken is not done by accident, for GOP strategists have long known that if you say something, even if it is a FALSEHOOD, over and over again, it will become ‘fact’ to those who do not take the time to debunk it, thus, hijacking the very people this will hurt the most, the middle and lower class of this country. This, like the bank bailouts of 2008, were all well orchestrated–if you will recall the arrogant, bullying Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, after those monies, the PEOPLE’S MONIES, were secured for the big banks–as if it were a special op mission in Pakistan. The government has been taken over, ’tis true, but not by ‘that socialist Barack Obama’, no, it was taken over long ago by the winner of the investment bank derby, Goldman Sachs, a bank for all occasions, and this rigged system of Wall Street, the embodiment of ‘crony capitalism’ is the cancer that is eating away at our economy, our people, and our environment, as it offers nothing in the way of value and proves itself a poisonous snake every day, sucking more life out of our dreams, aspirations, and goals as a nation. Hell, if we can’t even agree that a bridge falling down is a bad thing, how are we going to agree that continuing to put carbon into the atmosphere is going to result in anything less than catastrophic? Early this morning, 50 protesters were arrested in Boston for ‘trespassing’, in this great “Occupy Wall Street”, Boston chapter, and thus, will bring more attention to a movement that, again, because it reaches so deep, does not really need any charity from any ‘news’ outlet, for it pretty much speaks for itself and stands on it’s own merits, as “the TRUTH does not need defending”, only discovery and acceptance. How do you like them apples Charlie! I wonder if the Romney’s, Perry’s, Cain’s, etc., of the world will stand up tonight, at this republican debate on nothing but the economy, held in beautiful Hanover, New Hampshire, not too far from where this reporter went to college, the University of Vermont, in Burlington, Vermont, yes, I wonder if these professional snake oil salesmen would concur that the Keystone XL pipeline might just be a bad idea, as it is slated to go right through Nebraska, built upon some precious aquifers, running this Tar Sands pipe from it’s origin in Canada to the Gulf coast (not helping our economy at all, save a few thousand jobs that do not justify it’s existence, or by way of ‘weaning ourselves off of foreign oil, as it will simply be put on a barge after being sold overseas to the highest bidder on the international market) will offer up all kinds of environmental problems, one of which is the fact that this type of gritty, nasty oil emits three times as much carbon dioxide into said atmosphere, as well as the fact that it is 16 times more corrosive than light crude normally reserved for these type of pipelines, exposing more risk to OUR water sources and wilderness at large, yes, this horrible experiment of a new form of carbon emission, that one scientist stated, ‘would spell the end of our environment as we know it’, seems as though it will go on through, as President Obama has obviously forgotten just how important our environment really IS, and has been pushed around by the oil and gas industry since his taking over the Presidency, seeming to have given up on doing what is right by that environment, an environment that is not owned by these rotten industries, industries that are systematically poisoning US all, as they make money hand over fist. This all bringing LIGHT to what is really happening right now in our nation’s Capitol, a cesspool of dirty deals, dirty politicians and dirty intentions, a place devoid of HONOR, HONESTY, INTEGRITY and SOUL. This is one of the platforms of “Occupy Everything”, as one sign put it, and in this day and age of instant FACT checking and information, I have HOPE that the majority of people in this country will WAKE UP in time to stop this highway robbery of a few greedy plutocrats who still believe that the majority of those “American People” (credit Mitch, ‘the mouse’, McConnell (R-KY)) are too stupid, too busy, too poor, too tired, sick and disillusioned to do anything about their less than honorable intentions, thus keeping the status quo of the past fifty years alive and well...we shall see GOP, we shall see. Have a nice day and week ahead folks and keep on dodging those wooden nickles offered up by FOX NEWS, they may look good on the outside, but rest assured, they are chalk full of those 596 deadly, unregulated chemicals, used by Halliburton and Koch Industries, to make loads of cash off of the attainment of ‘natural gas’, in that fracking process that is making people sick all over the country, a problem they not only ignore, but seem to promote and take great joy in. God help them in their ignorance and arrogance… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
