A Distant Light

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:44 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  So good to be with you on this Wednesday morning, the first day of June, 2011, looking out onto the cool waters of Cape Cod Bay and the LIGHT at the very tip of Cape Cod, where the sand surrenders to the sea… It will be a HOT one here on Cape, as we expect temperatures to rise into the upper 80’s today with a fair amount of sunshine and humidity.  As always, the days right after Memorial Day week end seem to kick right into high gear and summer time on Cape and islands, so come on down, “we’ll leave the LIGHT on for ya!” A Representative from the great state of Oregon, Earl Blumenaer, a democrat, said it well last night when speaking to Chris Hayes of the Nation Magazine, pinch hitting for Lawrence O’Donnell and his show, “Last Word”, only on MSNBC, airing every week night at 8 and 11 p.m., EDT, when he said, “it is really hard to put your finger in the air to get a reading on the wind these days…” I paraphrase a little for the good congressman for I think he was speaking to the Stockholm Syndrome that has been gripping this nation for the past decade or so, and has overtaken a semblance of common sense reality in this country, or any other around the world.  Free market capitalism at it’s best on Capitol Hill…what did they “think” would happen?  Yes, the TRUTH is coming out.  First, the recent national poll that shows more people are concerned with the national debt in general rather than the REAL implications of default regarding the looming notion of raising the overall debt ceiling (proving the effectiveness of the corporate owned media bath “we” all take daily in this country), a ceiling that is past due and can only hold out with accounting tricks until August 2 of this year, when everyone understands that it must be raised, with everyone in congress and on Wall Street in agreement, really one in the same now, don’t you think?, yet, like the black sheriff in the classic Mel Brooks film “Blazing Saddles”, all of these puppets are in lock step with the idiotic notion that, “if severe and debilitating cuts to vital social programs such as Medicare are not slashed and slashed but good, then, the U.S. Treasury bonds, just like the sheriff, who is holding the gun to his own head, is “going to get it…” We all know this to be the inside JOKE, for these puppets would not dare the WRATH of that free market, world wide free market now, should they default for political and personal gain, and even though many in that nihilistic party might enjoy seeing grandma go off a cliff, pushed by their hero, Paul, “I told you to call me Bronco” (or “young gun(s)”–available in bookstores now) Ryan (R-WI), the “adults” in the room are not going to allow these hooligans to endanger the world’s global economy, with U.S. Treasury bonds still being the safest investment in the world today, moreover, they do not want to tip their hand as to their real agenda here, an agenda that involves the inmates taking over the asylum, as Washington D.C. is, more and more, being run by mobsters, white collar criminals who, all under the guise of “democracy”, are robbing the masses blind, while feeding them bull$hit on the tube, via corporate owned airwaves, and hence, manufactured “news”, news that is fit for the dumpster, and using this Stockholm Syndrome on many different fronts, energy being the biggest money maker, as they hope to hire more puppets to do their bidding, which, acting as the final nail in the coffin of democracy, will be the destruction of Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Planned Parenthood, Pell Grants for college students, Head Start for kids, the EPA, the food stamp program, public education, the clean drinking water act, the endangered species act, the affordable health care act, among many others, that, in relation to, say, the defense budget of the Pentagon who spent 781 billion dollars in 2010 alone, looks like the proverbial and literal ‘drop in the bucket’, for that is what it IS, yes, while cutting all of those social programs, the Republican party (that has been hijacked by this bizarre ‘Stockholm Syndrome’–please google the reference if you so desire to know more about this very real psychological reality here in the good ‘ole US of A–now taking orders from the likes of the ‘brother’s Koch’) sees fit to continuing to borrow money from China to pay for tax breaks for the rich, the top 2 percent, (all while spouting the ‘value’ of ’shared sacrifice’), continue giving billions of dollars away in the form of subsidies to the oil and gas industry, who are making record profits, unprecedented profits, historically unprecedented profits, all while creating more loopholes so that corporations can pay LESS in the way of federal income taxes, hence, DECREASING revenue, the core of the problem, all while destroying a useful organizational tool for this group, namely the public unions, that organizational and collective VOICE that, historically, has fought managerial greed and corruption, while offering safe and fair working conditions, with fair and honest pay…not to mention the voter registration war, a road block put up to keep the poor and disenfranchised, as well as minority groups and students, all who tend to vote democratic, out of the polling booths come election time, thereby decreasing the numbers for the democratic candidate who will stand up to these hooligans who are desperately trying to create a true PLUTOCRACY, or rule by the wealthy.  Don’t just take my word for it, I have plenty of proof in the form of public statements by plenty of people that don’t wish to be so “public”…  This all stinks to high Heaven and I thank GOD and my Lucky Stars that I am not a republican.  I don’t have to live in a world of deceit and lies, of false innuendo and horse$hit, dancing the dance where you are constantly looking at how many chairs are left and how many people are still dancing to the music, wondering who will get that last chair when the music finally does stop… as you double down in the year 2012, of all years, to play puppet once again for the likes of some dirt ball like David or Charles KOCH.  Do you think those scumbags care about you or your family?  The answer is in your heart, go and find it…  “We have seen the republican party keep moving the goal posts (not honorable, is it?) and they’re not going to be satisfied.  We already have a program to reduce Medicare spending, it’s called the Affordable Health Care Reform Act (passed into LAW over a year and a half ago, last session) and it will save over a trillion dollars.  What we ought to be doing is accelerating those savings, rather than screwing around with taking away the PROTECTION of Medicare for AMERICANS!” Thank you congressman, thank you.  Have a nice day folks and week ahead, and remember that wooden nickles don’t have any value, other than the story of how someone duped you into buying one of them.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
