Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the clear, cold and star lit (with a crescent moon) island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on a chilly Monday morning, very early as the stars are still out, as I bid you and yours a fair and fine adieu. “…this is beautiful, what is this velvet?”. (credit Mel Brooks in the classic film written and costarred by Brooks, “Blazing Saddles”, circa 1974).
As close as we can get here at the Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront, settling in for what should be a contentious week of snarling, back biting, anger and lots of pop corn watching TV, with only 15 days left until the 2014 Midterm elections that the American corporate media darling Nate Silver (statistician and betting man from the blog “538″), predicting that the Republican party will regain control of the U.S. Senate come November 4th, backing it with a statistical probability of 62 percent.
And why not? You got your new, GOP manufactured strict voter ID laws in Texas, you got your voter suppression in North Carolina, heck fire, we got that going on in 26 states at least now! Shoot, these are same ‘dang states we got them abortion laws, you know for life and all, ’cause like that guy out in Colorado, we believe in the new crazy ‘personhood’ idea, where the baby is a baby when we just think about it, that is, if we could think, but we all know once them youngins’ get up on into the age of say 15 or so, and being of a particular skin color and all, well sir, them boys are gonna be prime pickins’ for the local cops, ‘especially if they be in New York, Boston, Ferguson, well you get the idea, that’s why another pipeline we be buildin’ is that school to prison pipeline, ’cause as soon as they get past two, they are for the authorities to deal with, not us white folk in this here St. Louis gated community, …Margaret, fetch me another Jack and Coke, now where was I? Oh, yeah, the Midterms, you see Bob, can I call you Bob?”
“You just did…”
“Good, now see, look-y here, you’re one of them liberal elite journalists who probably drinks latte’s and drives a BMW. Well, let me tell you somethin’ about the real deal going on with this election. By suppressing the vote, gerrymandering the districts and creating FEAR via FOX and other hate outlets (radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh and the like), we have made sure the Republican faithful will come out to vote in droves. And with all of the “Citizens United“ Corporate Free Speech, now that “corporations are people too my friend”, God I love that Mitt Romney… Yes, any-hoo, with all of that nonsense being spewed (like the Methane leaking FRACKING well heads from SEA to shining SEA!) into the “American People’s” (faint laugh track in the background) collective living rooms, you can see that it should be a big win for our party! I mean, come on Bob, may I still call you that?, with guys like carpet bagger Scott Walker in the New Hampshire race for Senate and countless other Puppets, I mean candidates just like “it”, who’s to say what this next fine 114th U.S. Congress can ‘accomplish’, making the AMERICAN PEOPLE proud once again! Our ‘plan’ is to completely eliminate the EPA for starters, put boots on the ground in the Middle East once again, keeping that whole ‘Military Industrial Complex’ (Former great U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned U.S. of in 1960), yes sir, after that ’social shock’ is completed, only then we can begin impeachment hearings on the Kenyan socialist posing as a U.S. President, yes sir, we can do that and what was that third thing? Ah, yes, get ourselves a lobotomy! You see, you silly tree huggin’ liberal scum bag, we are always one step ahead of you. For we think, and always will think, that government should be small enough where we could, like one of our ‘Brut Squad’ (credit the 1987 film “The Princess Bride”, starring Robin Wright) commando’s, and all ’round great guy, Grover Norquist said so well, so many moons ago– “…drag it into the bathroom and drown it in a tub.” (issues! “…Warning Will Robinson, Warning!!!” credit the classic 1960’s TV series from 1965-1968 “Lost in Space”).
“We also believe that we are puppets for the uber wealthy, the plutocrats, and we will, as ‘elected’ officials, ‘bring down the deficit’ by slashing social programs for the poor, gut the new health care law created by that Kenyan “King Obama”, yes in deedy, you mark my words laddy, we plan to put all kinds of nonsense out there, burn the village by golly, by putting all kinds of non starter bills on Obama’s desk, forcing him, extortion?, to sign bills into law he does not want to, such as the Keystone XL pipeline, that will boost my boss’s (Koch Industries) bottom line worth (now at 100 billion) by the number 2, as in two times that much money. That’s right “200 BILLION DOLLARS” (credit ‘Dr. Evil’ and Michael Myers in the very funny film “Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery”, circa 1997), will be the new net worth of this new Russian Oligarchy, I mean American Oligarchy, as we make sure the planet is completely uninhabitable for any living creatures (save the cock roach or rat), by centuries’ end, perhaps creating a space ship for said plutocratic overlords, who will be comfortable in their collective and very PRIVATE cocoons, as the rest of the world twists in the ever growing wind and ever rising SEAS!”
That sounds like a great plan sir and good luck with it. From all of us here at Sea Cape Cod, I bid you a great day and week ahead, steering clear of FOX “Noise”–opting instead for some soothing Burt Backarack or something of that nature, really, ‘anything at this juncture’…
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
