Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, windy and seasonal island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Sunday morning, the 25th day of January, 2015, in between storms if you will here at the Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront(s), and considering that I am a filthy, liberal tree huggin’ scum bag who tells the truth on the Internet via this ‘message in a bottle’ every so often, I might as well wait until after I watch the Sunday morning talk shows that will be sure to outrage me and Lewis Black even more than we already are, outraged that I put myself through all of that slimy political negativity once again, coming out the other side smelly, angry, deflated (go Patriots!) and depressed. The only upside being a shower that washes all of that slime off but good; a good walk making “it” all that less ‘demanding’ on one’s attention, or at least I delude myself into thinking thusly.
Would I make a good Republican Mr. O’Reilly?
Watching “Real Time” with Bill Maher–Friday nights LIVE on HBO, ten p.m. eastern–around five a.m. this morning I almost threw up my pine cone breakfast as I listened to “James Fallows”, bow wow, go on and on about what he does NOT know about the coming world wide CATACLYSM called GLOBAL WARMING. A position that proved to bury the ‘author’s’ Ostrich shaped head in the proverbial sand, positions of such ludicrous denial shot down (one by one without saying a word), as Bill told of a recent study, regarding 2014 being the hottest year ever recorded by humans, that out of the roughly 10,555 peer reviewed international/independent climate reports–studied, conducted and written by REAL climatologists, physicists, and other SCIENTISTS, who make a living studying empirical FACTS–only 2 disputed the ‘facts’ that man is solely responsible for the earth’s exponential warming; dooming this little blue rock we all call ‘home’ for the moment if we don’t do anything about it SOON! All due to the continued INSANE spewing of green house gasses (Carbon Dioxide, Methane, and others), into our one and only atmosphere, creating this man made hell on earth… All while big oil, gas (and coal) international conglomerates, giant faceless corporations, make money hand over fist at the world’s peril, proving the adage of PROFIT over people big time. A FACT that is beyond any dispute, or any illogical conclusion thrown together by some prostitute posing as a politician or scientist; professor or bureaucrat.
“Hope it’s a nice coffee shop Jack!” (credit the classic film “Midnight Run”, starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin, circa 1988).
This of course leads us down the primrose path of the parallel Republican universe controlled by KOCH INDUSTRIES. Yes, it’s the dark monied “the Brother’s Koch”, not to be confused with “The Brother’s Grimm”, who scared little children in the 19th Century with tales of witches hiding out in gingerbread houses, armed with an EZ bake oven designed for said children, lo, do not be fooled by those scary fairy tales any longer! For these new 21st Century tales told in Palm Springs this week end are far scarier and far grander in scale. For the finale of the Koch brother’s retreat wraps up this week end, probably having a Bloody Mary as we speak, reviewing their well laid plans to take over the government en masse in a few years, as they attempt to woo either Romney or Bush, a Walker or a Christie (who knows?), into being their Executive puppet– taking this country from a democracy with that little letter ‘d’ to a thinly veiled plutocracy–or rule by the wealthy–a system rigged completely in favor of the status quo; a continuation and acceleration of what we have now–80 people owning what 3.5 billion people do.
A world so far out of whack it would take an act of God to change the way things are presently…
Meanwhile, the hillbillies are all meeting again today in Iowa where racist U.S. Congressman King is holding the annual ‘Freedom Summit’. A hate fest where everyone who ever thought of running for president shows up with their best stuff, oohing and awing the crowd of extra stupid people in attendance. I just feel sorry for reporters like Kasie Hunt of MSNBC who have to cover all this hor$e$hit. I mean come on! I have heard of Brady Bunch reruns but this is ridiculous. I hope they pay you well Kasie!
We got Mike Huckawho? Huckchuckles! (credit Chris Mathews of “Hardball”, only on MSNBC, weeknights, seven sharp!). We also got that Chris, “the dirty snowman”, Christie, not to mention the oldies but goodies, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, did I see Donald Trump? Don’t forget bat $hit crazy Ben Carson, Rand Paul, extra crazy eyes Ted Cruz, Scott Walker (already mentioned Koch puppet), and even Sarah, ‘whatever’, Palin, who will be pleased to know Paul Revere will also be in attendance at the RNC’s convention in Cleveland come the summer of 2016. Although he will be careful crossing the many bridges falling down all ’round that beautiful state! Great Job Mr. Speaker with your top shelf scotch, I mean priorities for ‘them American people’ you talk on behalf of so often. Along with the rest of your ilk; the party of the plutocrats–clearly ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’…
You are a national treasure sir, now go upstairs and get that sour puss of your face!
So grab a latte or a shot of tequila while observing the whole absurd show about nothing. At least “Seinfeld” was honest about that FACT. The Republican party should not be allowed to use the words “American” or “people” any longer, nor should they ever combine the two. For like in movie “Ghost Busters” (circa 1984), WE can not be duped by these dopes on the right any longer (future generations can’t afford to), when it comes to OUR planet’s health. Wake up America! A paramount point tailor made for this 21st Century America, echoing across eternity by the late great Harold Ramis, enlightening Bill Murray’s character (when he was alive), that if ‘they crossed the streams (continue to warm the planet with green house gasses), all life on earth would cease to exist’– hinting, that would be ‘bad’.
Prompting “Peter Venkman” to respond, “…great safety tip Egon, thanks”.
To be continued. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday folks and have a great week ahead!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
