Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! On a windy, humid morning here in Osterville, I bid you and yours a fair adieu. We have all seen the puppet show, and with that in mind, I thought I would offer a joke that struck me as rather funny, told by some of the “dog friendlies” here on the shores of this little sand bar, again, created by the Last Great Ice Age over 11,500 years ago, called Cape Cod and the Islands… It involves three distinct personalities, of dog, the “Black Lab”, the “Yellow Lab”, and the “Chesapeake Bay Retriever”, their “owners”, and the general philosophies, intrinsic in our electorate, sullied by misinformation, and, dare I say, Lies about what WE need to do to keep from going off yet another cliff, a cliff created by greed, a lust for power, and a backwards ideology that makes no sense in the “brave new world” we all find ourselves in…enjoy…. AND ACTION! An owner of a black lab (the “American People”, according to the p.o.h.n.), boasts that he can tell his black lab to do almost anything, including jumping off a cliff into the abyss with no questions asked…He instructs the black lab to do just that, and without hesitation, that lab jumps to his death. Not to be outdone, the owner of the yellow lab asks the same of said, “dog” (the rest of the “American people, albeit a little gun shy, a.k.a., “independents”) and as he looks into his “owners” eyes he submits to his request that he must “jump” into an abyss, without reason or logic, and therefore, does so, meeting his death with no fan fare or martyrdom. As we turn our attention to the man with the Chesapeake Bay Retriever (anyone who wants to embrace the TRUTH), who asks his loyal “companion” to fall upon his sword like the others, the retriever looks up at him, and, in dog “ease”, barks the words, “YOU FIRST”. That is the bottom line here folks, if you haven’t already received that memo. We can take a big step back, listen to the men who asked US all to jump off a cliff for their financial benefit and tell them, once and for all, while we simultaneously screaming at them as to where they can take their Cheney/Bush policies, a remix of the 1980’s “morning in America” Reagan rhetoric, and say with a single very, clear voice… “YOU FIRST”. Of course, that won’t happen because these are gutless punks who have not fought for anything their whole lives, have never lived without food or shelter, and have no clue as to who they really are, let along who anyone else is… READ BETWEEN THE LINES and KNOW the TRUTH…stand up for the TRUTH, and most importantly LIVE THE TRUTH. GOD’S SPEED to the GULF, all of the people of the Bayou, the SEA TURTLES, DOLPHINS, WHALES, BROWN PELICANS and marsh lands therein… may this nightmare be over for you soon. Have a wonderful day everybody. Peace~M
