A Breach–Humpack Style

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:17 am

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 fabulous Friday morning, the second day of September, 2011, here in the little tiny, tiny seaside village of Osterville, only a mere football toss from Hyannis Port, the former home to our Thirty-Fifth President of the United States of America, Mr. Jack Kennedy, his beautiful wife Jackie and the rest of that extraordinary family that did so much for this nation–a nation that looks so different in today’s light of gridlock, greed, posturing, political/economic/environmental Stockholm Syndrome(s) and social injustices, not to mention ‘inequality for all’…  As it is now September, I would be remiss if I did not do a little house cleaning before launching into my daily ‘liberal tree huggin’ radical rant’, as it seems on Wednesday–while crediting my good friend, and yours, if you know what’s good for ‘YA, Mr. Keith Olbermann, the Dean of modern day journalism in my humble opinion, who moved from MSNBC, via the corporate orders from the new parent company Comcast no doubt, to Al Gore and company’s ‘CURRENT TV’, a cable news station that provides not only “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, airing every weeknight at 8, let me repeat that, 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., EDT, as well as 2 a.m., 7 a.m. and I believe noon the next day, should you be like me and go to bed early sometimes so as to not have nightmares, yes, Current TV, offering “50 documentaries to see before you die”, as well as great movies ‘you just can’t see anywhere else…movies like Al Gore’s 2006 film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, speaking to, of course, the ‘hoax’ of global warming or, what some like to ‘political correctly’ say, climate change–yes, it seemed I made a mistake and said the show was on at 7, and to this I am deeply sorry as I was thinking about what time I sometimes watch it early the next day.  To make up for this error on my part, Keith, I will quote Mr. Oscar Wilde, and say, regarding the misquoting of the time of your great show…“it was one of Shaw’s!” If you are not familiar with English literature, Oscar Wilde was one of the greatest satirical writer’s of our ‘time’, as well as George Bernard Shaw, who once said of some of history’s greatest jacka$s brutal dictators, “your majesty is like a stream of bat piss, where all else is dark around you, you shine out like a golden light,” of course, he also said of the King at the time, “your majesty is like a dose of the clap, before your arrival pleasure, now, with your arrival, only a pain in the dark.”  Or was that Graham Chapman?  I can’t be sure at this early morning hour.  Thank you for pointing out that error on Wednesday night’s broadcast, my fiance and I were flattered and honored as always.  P.S. I hope you got that message the other day, feel free to come up to the Cape anytime, ‘we’ll leave the LIGHT on for ‘YA!’ Moving now to another topic that will be on the minds of many people in the next few days, is the tenth anniversary of “9/11″, a day that changed history in this country and indeed around the world forever.  On Keith’s old network, one of his proteges, in a way, Rachel Maddow, of “The Rachel Maddow Show”, a great show on at 9 p.m., EDT, only on MSNBC, coupled with the fantastic field reporter Richard Engel, of NBC NEWS, put together a gripping documentary that began last night and continues tonight with part’s two and three, “Day of Destruction, Decade of War”. In this most excellent documentary, these veteran journalists, and I mean that in every sense of the definition of the word journalism, go into great detail about what the events leading up to, during and after the attacks on our nation, September 11, 2011, actually did to this country, it’s people and the world at large.  Looking back on the choices made by the Bush administration to go to war against a sovereign nation that had nothing to do with the attacks, leaving over 4400 of our soldiers dead, along with over 100,000 Iraqis, but, perhaps more disturbing, the explosion of fear and intimidation that the new ‘homeland security’ forged, a giant new, extremely expensive ‘top secret America’ that now consists of 22 separate agencies that not only spy on our own citizens, but put people in secret prisons all over the world, all in the name of ’security’, (for who?), with crazy new tactics deployed by members of secret military operations like Blackwater, sorry Xe, the softer side of that insane grenade launching hand, who are above the law and take away our basic liberties we all enjoy because of REAL MEN like Jefferson, Franklin, Paine, Lafayette, Adams, Washington, and Hamilton, not to mention their brothers who came after them, such as Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Robert Kennedy and, of course, Martin Luther King Jr… There is no doubt that September 11, 2001 marked a day none of US will ever forget, however, it should not define US as a nation, for, as Benjamin Franklin put it so well so many moons ago, and I paraphrase a little here, but not much, “If one is willing to put security above liberty, then one is likely to lose both and deserve neither.” I would highly recommend watching tonight at 9 p.m., after “Countdown” of course, this very rich show full of real facts and scary details of what could be in store for this country should we elect an armed dog whistler like Rick Perry of Texas, the good governor who privatized the C.H.I.P. program in his state (for profit) for poor children in his state, resulting in 1 in 5 children being without any health care coverage at all, while putting “America back to work” at McDonald’s, Walmart, or some other international corporate conglomerate whose only interest in creating ‘new jobs’ is to do away with the minimum wage so that “the American People” can feel like it must have been like to be a slave–for that is what is truly going on here folks, a culture war between the haves and the have nots, with the latter losing their voice more and more every day because of crooked cops, crooked lawyers and crooked judges, not to mention crooked politicians who are merely puppets for the modus operadi of the coming plutocracy, “PROFIT OVER PEOPLE”! Have a wonderful week end folks and remember, wooden nickles can be used for many different purposes, but one of those is not for higher KNOWLEDGE, for Rupert Murdoch learned long ago, that Knowledge IS power and his minions over at FOX NEWS are certainly not going to give you any of that.  Argggghhhhh matie! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~
