Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! How good it is to be with you on this Friday morning here on Cape, as you look out onto a fortunate, or unfortunate land owner who seems to get all of the seagulls over, well, all the time, as evidenced by the white stains on his roof, a roof, I should think, must be cleaned on a fairly regular basis. Much like our congress, speaking of the devil, who wants at least 2 trillion dollars in spending cuts if they are going to play ball on raising the debt ceiling, all while they now state very clearly and vigorously that raising taxes on the top 2 percent is, “off the table”, according to Speaker of the House, John Boehner. with no talk of eliminating oil subsidies for the extremely profitable, yet embarrassingly in bed with, oil and gas industry. A move that would save 20 billion dollars in the next ten years, while eliminating the Bush era tax cuts for the wealthy would add or save, as the it were, 4.1 trillion we would BORROW from foreign nationals to pay for the continuation of those temporary cuts way back in 2001 and 2003, beginning to move this country in the right direction, a direction that involves ALL the people, not just a lucky few. The republican joke puppets, their A list, McConnell (R-KY) for example, are now denying that 36 billion in subsidies collectively, according to notable and independent thinking world class economists, undermine and undercut our overall economy, don’t reduce prices at the pump and keep politicians in the pocket of big oil, a sickening codependent relationship if I have ever seen one. I wrote another three or four pages worth of good stuff today, but I tell you what, I am in just too good a mood this morning, a beautiful one out there, to really care today, although it is a very important topic and I will be happy to discuss it with you tomorrow. So, have a good one, and ENJOY the week end! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
