Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the warm, foggy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, the twenty-fourth day of January, 2012, another mild one on Cape, as WE, at least those who stayed up until midnight watching the republican debate hosted by NBC last night, recover and get ready for the ‘Other Voice’ in this nation’s annual “State of the Union Address”, given, of course, by the President of the United States, Barack Obama, a very FINE President I might add, offered up at 8 p.m. eastern standard, in this nation’s Capitol, Washington D.C., a kind of, well, ‘come to Jesus moment’ if you will for everyone who has some stake in this country, i.e. 311 million souls. That includes ALL of those souls, even those who make less than the ‘historians’ and the occasional ‘outside businessmen’, like ‘our friend’, the winner of last night’s debate in Florida, the next battle ground primary fight for the republican nomination, Mitt, “hey, I saved the Olympics, did I not?”, Romney…, a speech that will focus on the glaring economic GRAND CANYON that exists today between the haves and the have nots, a canyon that did not exist to the degree it does today only fifty years or so ago, begging the question, what happened? An unfair, rigged, thus, self fulfilling system is ‘what happened’, in so far that “IT” (plutocratic delusional visions of grandeur) insures the rich do get richer and the poor, well, go can, for lack of a better word, go (blank) themselves! We live in a world where corporate domination has literally taken hold of our humanity, with only a few at the very top gaining all of the advantages from all of the plundering done to this world on a daily basis, and as the planet’s temperatures continue to rise, due to all of the carbon thrown out into the atmosphere daily, with no regard for OUR kids or our grand kids futures, a FACT whether you AGREE with it or not, we will some day scratch our collective heads and say, man, why did we not act when we could have?…or, perhaps, WE will finally WAKE UP and smell that proverbial coffee, knowing that solutions exist BECAUSE we are ALL part of the oneness that IS GOD. Have a nice day and take care of one another for gosh sakes, because, who knows? One of these men just might save your life someday…(credit the incomparable Bill Murray and his army friend “Sargent Hulka” from the classic film, circa 1981, “Stripes”). PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
