Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, cool, perfect island of Nantucket! Perfect truly does describe the weather today, and Happy Father’s Day, on this Sunday morning, the 15th day of June, 2014–a great one to all the Dad’s out there, including mine out in Palm Springs, California! Nay you have a peaceful one without any commercial interruptions. Quite a lot has happened since we last spoke, lets’ SEA, those oceans are still rising, the drought in the western U.S. is deepening, the Midwest and some of the east coast is still getting battered by strong storms, golf ball and even softball size hail at least falling from the sky. The Russians are shooting planes from the Ukrainian sky, killing 44 just the other day, with the intent of one Vladimir Putin still up for anyone’s debate, debate regarding an end game to this chess match that could turn even deadlier, ah, what else, the corporate fake grass roots tea party got another shot in the arm as one of the most conservative and the majority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, a congressman from the great state of Virginia, lost in a primary, causing the whole of the Washington beltway to lose their collective minds, media and politician alike, with every pundit out there explaining what it all means. Who cares? The whole system is RIGGED not to mention broken and needs an enema. Sgt. Bergdahl is still “America’s Most Wanted” or at least that former POW is to the clowns over at the Goerbell’s like propaganda noise outlet known as FOX “NEWS”, not to mention all the other a$$hole haters out there on talk radio, may a big bus hit you soon, just kidding. And last but not least, Iraq!
That’s right Dads of America, today you can just sit back and watch ABC’s “This Week”, or CBS’s “Face the Nation”, or NBC’s “Meet the Press”, or, oh yeah, fu$k FOX, yes, you can DVR the whole shooting match or just watch it LIVE, reliving all the fun WE all had this past eleven years or so, going back down a rabbit hole that no one on the right seems to have crawled out of yet. You have the bordering on dementia John McCain spouting off again about Obama being ‘weak’ and ‘indecisive’, you might be right John, I can’t decide. Everything you said about the Iraq war from the get go has been WRONG, that’s right, wrong, the opposite of RIGHT. The Sunni and the Shiites have, will and always will be fighting amongst themselves, there is nothing to bomb, including Iran, who, if you begin an assault on this newly formed ISIS, ‘Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’, yes, if you bomb them you better make sure we don’t kill a bunch of civilians, because that will make it even worse than the whole bloody FORMER IRAQ WAR has already been for this nation. 4486 American lives were lost (along with well over a hundred fifty thousand Iraqi soldiers and civilian people, that’s right John, real live people) with over 32,000 U.S. soldiers injured, many with injuries that are invisible so they are not helped or loved when they return. Turning to booze and drugs, many ending up homeless with jackasses like McCain doing NOTHING to help them. Shut the hell up republicans, you have no legs to stand on, like many of the Vets who were shot up in YOUR bloody, illegal and insane war!
Shame on those who start wars and then wish to continue the insanity with more of the same insanity. Clearly defining the truism, and the definition of insanity–doing the same thing over and over again (in this case war), expecting different results. May Divine Intelligence be with our leaders now, now more than ever.
Again, to all the men who have sacrificed, loved, laughed and cried with their sons, to those men all over this world, may you have a good day, hopefully getting outside and smelling those roses, for the very Ragosa Roses you see pictured above (image taken at Kalmus Beach, world famous windsurfing spot in Hyannis, Massachusetts only a few moments ago) is simply a reminder to gather them while ye may, for today is just the future, yesterday… Have a great one! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
