Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again sunny, gorgeous, breezy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on a beautiful Friday afternoon on Cape Cod–the fourteenth day of August, 2015–a perfect week for any of the 11 million visitors to the area, this #1 tourist destination on this east coast of the United States of America.  And by the looks of traffic coming on and off of the ferries going over to said islands, it looks like the word is out.  We will, as always, leave that LIGHT on for ya!

As MSNBC’s Ari Melber pointed out on Rachel Maddow’s TRMS sometime this week, it looks as if both Republican Donald Trump and Independent Democrat Bernie Sanders have most assuredly taken “The Road(s) Less Traveled“.  Donald, one could assume, probably not a big fan of author Scott Peck, the man who wrote that great novel.  But, this reporter has been wrong in the past on many, many, many occasions. Just ask any of my ex-girlfriends, ‘they’ll tell ya’!

That’s right, both dark horses coming out of nowhere, now front and center stage, leading the pack in every national and local poll in this mad race for their respective party’s nomination to become the nation’s 45th President of the United States of America. It would be fair to say most if not all of the country now ready to get real, although most do not have a choice about it, airwaves beginning to flood with the billions that will be spent in 2016 campaign Ads.  Thanks mostly to the folly of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in  “Citizens United v. FEC”, a victory for the never satisfied corporate zombies, who want complete control of this so called democracy… Opening up the flood gates for said very, very special interests to spend freely at will, spending as much as they like, without disclosure of any kind, explaining it all to US, as to who they are and what their motives may be…

Vast, unimaginable amounts of monies carefully designed to steer the electorate this way or that… Indeed, this is all about another critical American election determining who will lead this nation into the ‘adulthood’ of the 21st century.  Still 15, teenagers can be rebellious, with the ever defiant “I’m not going to listen to reason” bravado that eventually dies down by dinner time.  So we have a long, long way to go.  Collectively we have been turning a blind eye to the reality of GLOBAL WARMING (and all of the ramifications therein…), turning a blind eye to the unsustainable (for a civil, democratic society), GRAND CANYON gap between the haves (e.g., 400 or so American individuals owning more than half the nation combined!), and the have nots. We also have turned a big, blind eye to the incessant/tragic rape and pillage of OUR environment for purely profit motives, regardless of the consequences to all of the innocent human, plant and animal life that is so dear and precious to US ALL!  Denying this critically needed health care to the only home we presently have–i.e. Earth–hello?  Rather, the big multinationals are only accelerating it’s demise with it’s blind thirst for more. Finally, we have also been turning a blind eye to the reality of racial wounds that need healing, noting quite clearly that all lives matter, black, white, male, female, gay, straight.  We are not in need of more militarized zones; parts of the U.S. looking more like the ‘DMZ’ everyday. Yes, as we turn away from that blindness and look into the LIGHT, we may just have a shot for future generations.

For make no mistake about it, the challenges this country (and indeed the world), this multinational “globalized” corporate owned media won’t tell you about–via a mega dose of unpalatable, homogenized (for your protection!) hooey coming ‘atcha 24/7–is remarkable.

FOX “news”; we “report”, you decide?”

Begging the question, what better ‘time’ than NOW to sound the horn?  Getting active by jumping on board the truth train with a man like Independent U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders hailing from the great state of Vermont?

His ideas are sound and his agenda has not one special interest, save you, the American voter.

Think about it.

Have a great week end everybody!
