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 Monday morning, the eleventh day of July, 2011, and as you can see via the image above you, Osterville will be, for the rest of the month of July, Hollywood, as Adam Sandler, Susan Sarandon and James Caan get down to the business of filming a new movie entitled, “Dear Dad, I Hate You”, which, parenthetically, is the sentiment on both sides of the aisle in Washington D.C. these days, as politicians in our nation’s capitol continue to hen peck each other over raising the all important debt ceiling, with each side wondering ‘who their daddy really is’–is it the ‘American People’, as the republicans claim as a mantle, while they demand ’shared sacrifice’ by way of cutting Medicare and Social Security, while keeping the tax levels criminally high for the top wage earners and corporations in this country, a country that has seen it’s average wage in the past thirty years rise by only one percent, while corporate profits have risen by 88 percent, is that who their daddy is really? Or, is it the polar opposite? For on the other side of that infamous aisle, you have democrats, who will not condone any cuts to very popular social programs, while also demanding that corporate loopholes and tax subsidies to big oil and their brethren be eliminated, simultaneously hinting at restructuring the U.S. tax code. The divide between them is akin to the Grand Canyon metaphor I utilize occasionally to describe the growing gap between the rich and the poor in this nation, in that both sides of American leadership seem to be unaware of what is really going on in this beautiful country of ours. People are literally going hungry every night, as most cannot buy a job, have low moral, and don’t see a way out…feeling like those poor souls who survived Katrina, who were left stranded in a major U.S. city with no food, no water and no hope, bussed off like so many cattle to another major U.S. metropolitan area, Houston, and told, ‘good luck, and, welcome to your new home…’ There are no easy answers, however, the solution will come when both sides are more transparent and answer that 64,000 dollar question, “who’s your daddy?”, and, oh, by the way, “I hate you”, present company excluded of course, giving us all that 20/20 vision of what these guys really stand for and what they do not. I will leave that up to your imagination to decide who is on the right and wrong side of human history in this race to the finish, August 2, 2011, a day that will be remembered for either common sense and coming together as a country, or common greed and sabotage, for in the end, it will be too easy to see who was really on the side of said, ad nauseum, “THE AMERICAN PEOPLE”, and who was most clearly not. Have a great week and don’t take any of those filthy wooden nickles from the likes of, say it with me, Rupert, “arrgggghhhh matie”, Murdoch’s, the nastiest pirate of the international news barge, FOX NEWS, for how far does the apple really fall from the apple tree? PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
