Bird Song

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket!  I hope you are well and safe this morning, this 21st of April, 2010.  Yesterday was, perhaps, the prettiest day of the year thus far, with abundant sunshine, temperatures in the mid 50’s and large cumulus clouds above… bringing hundreds of people to Dowses Beach here in Osterville– spring has arrived!  What can we all say about the crooked ways of Wall Street?  The best analogy I heard yesterday during my exhausting search for the truth, was a gentleman on Chris Mathews show, “Hardball, with Chris Mathews”, who likened the recent “trips” that Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell took from his home state of Kentucky to Wall Street, where he met with the biggest “banking” institutions in the world, (Mitch “serves” as one of the Senators and “acts” as the minority “leader” in the United States Senate) to taking out an insurance policy on his neighbor’s house and then burning it to the ground. His visits to the dark side raised eyebrows, for he has gone on record with misinformation, strike that, down right lies, about the financial reform that is being considered in congress even as I write this commentary, and has pretended to be on the side of the average angry American citizen.  He states that the new proposed legislation would act as another bailout for the firms that are “too big to fail”… Nothing could be further from the truth.  The new legislation brings about tougher regulations on these crooked casinos and lessens the possibility that the tax payers in this country would need to come forward again to give money to people who have taken the upside for all of these years and left the downside to the average working family.  He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, nothing more.  The recent scandal involving Goldman Sachs who, along with a shady hedge fund manager, designed complicated mortgage backed securities that both the hedge fund and the investment bank knew would fail, all the while telling it’s own customers that they were AAA rated by Moody’s rating agency (who is owned by the big banks and represents a huge conflict of interest) and moreover, guided them into buying them.  “Shana, they bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into, I say, let ‘em crash,” (SNL 1975 point-counter point).  In other words, selling fire insurance to your neighbor and then lighting a match to burn the whole thing down.  Quite a gentleman.  Good for you Mitch, we need more of your kind in Washington D.C., for those poor people who don’t have enough to eat  and desperately need your lies to fill their empty stomachs.  You are a disgrace to your state, your profession and your God… Oh, wait a moment, Wall Street is your God, never mind… The P.O.N. is a poisonous viral infection that seems to be spreading like wild fire in this battered country.  The puppets that “play” Senator are only outmatched by the puppets that play game show hosts on Nazi like programs airing 24/7 on the FOX News channel, whose blind ambition and brain washed minds are funnier than the comedy channel.  I don’t enjoy writing commentary about these “tiny minded wipers of other people’s bottoms” (credit:  Monty Python’s Flying Circus), yet in order to heal, the muck must be brought into the sunlight of the Truth. I would much rather write about great women in our history that offered sage advice on how we should live our lives, not bowing to fear and hate, rather living out loud in Joy and Love.  One of those women is Audrey Hepburn, one of my favorite people to ever grace planet earth.  She rose, as we all know, as a star on the silver screen.  Her beauty was breathtaking and her heart was a big as a whale, for after an all too brief career as an actress, starring in iconic films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, she left the glitz of Hollywood and spent her remaining days in Africa, where she worked for the great cause, UNICEF, and helped thousands upon thousands of children who had no one else to care for them.  Imagine that happening today.  I want to share a poem that was read at her funeral, written long before her death.  She was asked to share her beauty tips and this is what she wrote…”For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.  For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.  For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.  For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.  For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.  People even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you need a helping hand you will find one at the end of each of your arms.  As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.”  She was a Saint…  As for Mitch McConnell, I must not throw him out, nor anyone else on the “party of no”, for even though they are not awake, they are just as worthy of Love as anyone else–McConnell defines the word forgiveness.  Have a great day folks!  Peace~ M
