A safe harbor?

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:44 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again still star and moon lit island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this very early Thursday morning, the ninth day of October, 2014, still dark on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age.  Although on the waters, the light of the full moon will lead one’s vessel to shore.  Assuming you have the right blood line, the correct charts, a boat load of cash and the right connections/experience to get you to the safety of say of Nantucket’s quaint harbor, perhaps the wealthiest harbor in all the world…

Money. That’s what makes the world go round right?  With the 2014 Midterm elections now only 26 days away, control of the U.S. Senate hanging in the balance, as well as our democracy with that little letter ‘d’, not to mention the environment, let’s hope it is more than just money making this blue rock called earth spin on it’s infinite journey around the sun, with perhaps just a little LOVE entering that equation?

We all love our families, we all love our friends, we all love our animals, we all love our lovers, we all love our children, we all love our country and indeed I believe most of us love this beautiful world we all share.  But somewhere along the line, in this late year of 2014, most of the world’s leaders have missed that point altogether.  The ongoing critical mass of death via violent Saudi Arabia style be-headings goes on unabated in the war torn countries of Syria and Iraq, as this cancerous group of radical killers (known as ISIL), with no real agenda save some crazy ‘god’ dressed up in a black robe, is about to take another city on the border with Turkey.  Combine this with the first death in the U.S. of this Ebola virus, as well as all of the insane political Ads saturating the airwaves and it surprising more people are not going to the ER with panic attacks, ulcers and chest pains.  All while screaming out the fearful delusions planted in their minds by ‘men’ like Bill O’Reilly– “author” of ‘Killing Chicken Little?‘–from FOX, blasting out to America“…the sky is falling, the sky is falling, for Christ’s sake’s can’t you see?  The sky is falling!”.

FOX “NEWS” preys on this kind of hysteria, selling a whole lot more Viagra and the like, yes sir, this is sweeps week God dammit!  Most people who watch FOX are older folks, mostly of the conservative ilk, and would not be interested in what I have to say about this matter even if it may save a few years on their Golden Years to come.  Using the tactic of FEAR ushers out any hope of LOVE, thus proving the old adage that there are only those two emotions, two states of being if you will.  Love being real; fear being an illusion.

“There is nothing to fear but fear itself…“     Our visionary and courageous 32nd U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

When fear is used as a tactic, mostly to manipulate the weak and ignorant to do the powerful plutocrats’ bidding, it can blind the subject, making ‘threats’ (as if they are really credible threats right here, right now) seem bigger and badder than they really are.  Sending people into that rash, ‘the sky is falling!’, kind of hysteria, leading to more bad decisions such as voting in more Republicans who do not have the average American’s best interests in mind.  Although, Joe six pack wouldn’t know that because he watches FOX & Friends, begging SEA CAPE COD to ask once again, quite seriously, “…are you my friend Steve Ducey?”

…are you really?

A fair question any FREE American adult should ask himself, or herself, these days before another important U.S free and ‘fair’ election.  For believe you me, these clowns dressed up like credible news anchors (not worthy enough to carry Walter Cronkite’s jock strap), appearing on FOX, as they attempt to pull the wool over the collective ‘American people’s’ eyes once again, will have you believe anything BIG corporate interests want you to believe.  Leading you down ‘the primrose path’, down Congressman Paul Ryan’s ‘the pathway to prosperity’ that leads to the ‘pathway to slave wages’, leading to ‘a pathway of eliminating healthcare in the U.S.‘, to ‘the pathway to increased morbidity rates among the working poor’…

This all leading to the “pathway of the PLUTOCRATS“, with of one or two wealthy families, like the Koch’s, the Walton’s, essentially calling the shots, as we all get used to drinking fracking fluid and shopping at Walmart for every basic human need.  Now with convenient banking as well, charging criminal late fees to those who can’t buy a job, but can open up a bank account that will, like “Pay Day Loans” (criminal loan sharks, legal, charging upwards of 440 percent interest rates to keep those working poor enslaved to it’s corporate masters), keep him prisoner in a world of debt that never ends.

Make no mistake about it folks, this hijacked, and ‘not your grandpa’s GOP, is not up to ANY good.  Please implore yourself and your friends, neighbors, children, lovers, husbands, wives, and even your coworkers to get out the vote this November 4th!  This little experiment called the United STATES, a little divinely inspired democracy, only 238 years old, is at stake.  So stop texting and driving you Millennials, and wake up to the country you were born into!  Do something other than complain!

The I-phone will be there when you get back to earth and educate yourself and your loved ones as to what is really going on here.  To make it simple, ask yourself one basic, common denominator kind of question–”…do I really want my country run by someone who does not believe in the very basic science of GLOBAL WARMING?”.   “Who denies it outright?”  “Does that really work out for me and MY family?”…

Food for thought folks, have a great rest of this Thursday and keep on avoiding those wooden nickels thrown about by the likes of a Bill O’Reilly. Whose “talking points” on “The Factor” may as well be written outside the gates of hell, ’cause that’s where he and the Republican party want to take this country.  One fracking fluid pond at a time… 

“How ’bout a nice cool drink Varmint?” But be careful Gopher, there are 596 deadly chemicals in that drink of ground water.  Chemicals that are all secret by the way, secret from even the EPA who is in bed with the Methane industry.  As the frackers tell the Gopher and his woodland pals, “…you’re the lowest member of the food chain, you will probably be replaced by the rat…”.
