Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, cool, calm island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Sunday morning, the twenty-ninth day of April, 2012, another day to enjoy a walk in the park, a little cool for barefoot, although, being one of them liberal, tree huggin’, latte sippin’, fancy book learnin’, MSNBC a watchin’, kayak lovin’ hippy scumbag, you never know what the day may bring. I have to admit, I taped the White House Correspondents’ Dinner but from what I’ve heard, it was quite good. I have been engrossed however, for the past ninety minutes, with one of my favorite shows of the week, the fine news hour(s) of “UP, with Chris Hayes”, Saturday and Sundays 8-10 a.m., followed by my other favorite weekend show, “Melissa Harris-Perry”, or “MHP”, same days, 10-noon, only of course, on that ‘lean forward’ commie station of MSNBC!), where a myriad of always fine guests spoke to the upcoming “May Day”, where OCCUPY will once again rear it’s ‘ugly’ head, ringing TRUISMS revolving around ECONOMIC JUSTICE, not to mention social and environmental Justice, calling for a nation wide strike to put employers on notice that without said work force, and the people who buy the products, your corporation(s) would be out of business. You see, OUR collective VOICE, demanding a FAIR SHAKE, not a hand out, is the central issue OCCUPY is evolving into. It is no longer right for a select few to gain in a rigged system ALL in their favor, for decades now, taking place in a so called democratic society, democracy with a little letter ‘d’, while millions of people are truly suffering, suffering needlessly. Many of whom continue, via the slick new activist Judicial legislators that turned corporations into real, live ‘people’, to vote against their own economic and dare I say moral interests. This true LABOR DAY in the U.S., before it was moved to September by I believe President Grover Cleveland, was once a celebration of the American worker and his or her rights. Those rights and the very unions themselves have devolved over the course of the decades, and so too, at the very same clip, have wages for said worker, whom have now become slaves to the multinational corporate conglomerates in a global plutocratic society, whose overall wealth dwarfs entire nations, i.e. Exxon-Mobile’s net worth more than the entire GDP of Sweden… More on all of this ‘nonsense’ later. Meanwhile, enjoy the day, for it was, after all, the unions of our forefathers that created the week end, and it was the Lord above that commanded US all to take a break on at least one day of the week. A true day of rest. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
