Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Sunday morning, the twenty-ninth day of May, 2011, another foggy one, as we keep on getting one foggy day here on Cape and certainly the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket after another–where the fog forms often and sometimes is not made up of water droplets at all, rather deep corruption and lies provided by the Nantucket Police Department, as in the tale, and true story, “Taking Fog to Nantucket”, that will be available in book stores very soon…stay tuned, same bat time, same bat station. It is, of course, Sunday morning and that means it is time for our favorite Sunday morning talk shows–“This Week, with Christiane Amanpour”, and “Meet the Press, with David Gregory”, being the best in the business, both on in the a.m., check your local listings, and airing on ABC and NBC respectively. I have no idea who will be on the shows this morning, but safe to say I think we will be hearing quite a lot about the victory by the democrats in the 26th district of New York, where they held a special election for the position that became available after the newly elected congressman decided to join the “Craig’s List” walk of shame and pose with his shirt off. The results were not only astonishing, considering the fact that a democrat has not won in those parts since the mid 19th century, but, moreover, believed, by many, representing an omen of things to come. The republican party has overstepped its’ bounds (their recent attempt at the life of Medicare and Medicaid, via Paul, “I told you to call me Bronco!”, Ryan’s bill “Pathway to Poverty”, I mean Prosperity) and thus, will pay a heavy political price. There is no doubt that the likes of Governors such as Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Rick Scott of Florida, John Kasich of Ohio and Rick Synder of Michigan represent the very worst that the republican party can be, i.e. fascists, therefore, they will be the first to go, along with perhaps up to 25 members of the House, turning power back over to the democrats in not only 2012, but 2014 as well. The American voter is beginning to see the LIGHT regarding the horrible nature of who these puppets in both houses of congress really are, who they work for and where they wish to take this truly hurting nation. We have been, collectively, in the grips of corporate special interests for upwards of three decades now, and the gig is up. As our environment continues to go downhill, and our children look at us as if we have lost our minds on so many different issues and levels, from gay marriage to the crazies on the side of creationism, we all know this country cannot maintain it’s ignorance, intolerance and inhumanity much longer. Something has got to give, and it will be the runaway corporate greed that has bankrupted this nation and sent it into a knee jerk reaction life centered around fear, hate and paranoia. So, today, as we mark the day before we mark another important Memorial Day for a nation that has been at war seemingly forever, let us remember why we fight wars to begin with… Is it for the profit margins of big oil companies? Or is it for our grandparents, our brothers and sisters, our parents, our children, our friends, our fellow man who cannot fight for himself, fighting against naked aggression that comes in many forms now “a days”, and must be called out regardless of what soil it is discovered upon? Let us please, above all, keep THAT in mind. GOD’S SPEED to the recovery and comfort of the people of Joplin, Missouri today, as President Barack Obama visits that tornado torn city, that lost upwards of 132 people in one of the most violent tornado outbreaks this nation has seen in recent memory, may you find peace today and always… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
