“Blood, toil, tears and sweat…”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:14 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cool, purple skied majesty, magical, miraculous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this somber Monday morning, The 23rd day of March, 2020.  Still dark clouds greet this new day here on Ocean Street, Historic Hyannis, and this humble reporter takes in the “Morning Joe”, only on MSNBC, attempting to wrap his head around the insanity of leadership at the top, revealing that although there may be a light on in the White House this six a.m. hour,

…no one is at home.

We need, according to experts, 3.5 billion masks now, the administration cheering their efforts to create several million.

Well done sir!

The U.S. Senate failed to reach a deal on the new COVID-19 relief bill, with 500 billion in relief for corporations, not enough for the ‘little people’ in this country, thereby Senate Democrats shot it down late last night.  Trump is only interested in getting reelected, keeping the economy afloat long enough for that to happen.  He refuses to invoke the Defense Production Act, giving sweeping powers to create the gear needed to battle this invisible enemy.

500 billion dollar slush fund indeed.


This is a war, but it’s mutating into a chaotic chess match.  Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, a clown’s apprentice, mirrors this vain attempt to ‘help’ the American people with these generous bail outs that serve only to keep afloat the cruise lines, airlines, and other corporate entities, as the nation slips into an abyss;

the deep, dark, daunting waters of OUR ‘time’.

“if you’re here and I’m here, I believe it’s OUR ‘time’”

Right U.S. Senator Rand Paul?

You want to break into the Senate Gym and take a swim? Sets a great example doctor!

We could not have a worse president ‘in charge’ at this paramount moment in this great nation’s history.  Trump is no more a leader of men going into battle, than a dolphin is biking the dunes of the Cape.  His insistence that governors take the mantle and ‘find supplies on their own’, sums up the lack of a real foothold into reality when it comes to this tough test for America.

The man may have been tested for the Corona Virus, but has he been tested for schizophrenia?  Let the record show Trump says one thing out of his mouth and acts in a 180 degree contradiction.  This is not leadership, this is insanity.

The markets look bleak this morning, with futures down big time because this bill did not pass, due to, again, the giant slush fund to none other than people like Trump and his horrible hotels around the world.  He will point his bony, old finger at those U.S. governors if this goes south in the next few months, for the economy will follow the health of the people who participate in it.  Thus, the impetuous must be on testing, tracking, self isolation, social distancing, and ramping up our health care centers such as hospitals, where the real battle will be fought.

Not at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

This new ‘reality TV show’, called “Trump’s Happy Time”, on every station, every day, usually around High Noon, if one can sit through the whole thing, will usher in the egregious and error filled nonsense served up by this so called “Commander-in-Chief”, creating fog and folly, not pin point strategy former real generals used in wars gone by.

This man is not fit to be in a war he cannot win.  Many Americans will pay a high price for a sad, tragic, feeble effort of ‘acting’ as though he is a white knight in a battle that has yet begun.  We are at code red, with spring breakers, taking in the beaches of Florida, soon to infect seniors who make up most of the population of that great state.  There is no coordination whatsoever, we are flying blind, bandages here and there, as the nation’s largest metropolitan area, New York City, reaches 10,000 cases, with the mayor, Bill De Blasio, stating they are about to run out of equipment to protect the health care workers, with no real commitment from the Federal government to provide the very basic bullets needed in this fight.

Bluster and bravado will not carry the day, we need a real leader to tackle this from the perspective of REALITY. Slush funds for the cruise lines is an outrage, not to mention all the other pigs at the trough.  If the Senate does not pass this bill, or new bill by High Noon today, there will be hell to pay.  We could lose up to 2 million people, put that in your pipe and smoke it “Joker”…

As the great Prime Minister of Great Britain stated in regard to World War II,

“…it is going to take blood, toil, tears and sweat”.

“I know Winston Churchill sir, and you, you Donald J. Trump, are no Churchill!

Have a safe, positive, powerful week ahead folks!

God Bless!
