Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cooling, windy, cloudy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, the second day of this New Year, January of course, 2012, a new key stroke on the old keypad to be sure. How’s weather out there? Winter may be finally making an appearance this year, as the temperatures out in the Midwest are dipping down into single digits with Cleveland, hello!, bracing for a winter storm that will march it’s way eastward today, with Nantucket island expecting gusty winds, falling temperatures and perhaps even a little snow… The folks out in Iowa don’t care too much about this cold snap, as the weather is just fine at Java Joe’s in Des Moines, Iowa, where the cast and crew of “Morning Joe”, brewed by Starbucks, are broadcasting LIVE, as I write these immortal words at 7:04 a.m., eastern standard, speaking to the Iowa caucus that will take place tomorrow, bringing forth the first republican ‘election’ of sorts to determine who will try and unseat this very fine President, Barack Obama, we already have. Good Luck. All of the pundits this morning on that very fine early morning news show are busy talking about all of the finer points of this very popular, for some reason, republican primary fight, only on MSNBC, starting with Willie Geist’s, “Way too Early”, at 5:30 a.m., to which he always asks the question, ‘what are you doing up at this hour?’. One of my favorite responses to that all important question thus far, as they read them live on the air every day, has been, “I had a hankering for a chunk of cheese…”, yes, all of the very smart people on that show seem to be leaning towards Mitt Romney as the winner, even if Ron Paul and Rick Santorum take a good ‘chunk’ of that vote. The super pacs that are controlling the REAL game right now have this thing already wrapped up. Check the betting tables in Dublin. You might want to let Michelle Bachmann know that gently though, the news may be too much for her to bear. Mitt, “corporations are people too my friend”, Romney is going all the way to the bank with this weak crop of candidates who can’t seem to get out of each other’s way in reelecting Barack Obama in 2012. The only way the republicans win in the fall is if the new tough voter ID laws in many parts of the country go into effect as they had planned, tough new laws due to newly elected republican legislators KNOWING that if they suppress the vote in poor neighborhoods, black neighborhoods that vote predominantly for democrats, not to mention students and the elderly, well then, you have taken away that all important ‘margin of error’, and shaved off a few points more to boot. Thus, fraudulently stolen the election just like you did back in 2000, when Al Gore was pronounced dead on arrival due to the fact that John Roberts was sitting on the Supreme court bench. A fact no matter how you slice it. Look to this issue alone standing out as the number one story in 2012, for if ‘corporations that are people too’, can diabolically disenfranchise the ‘American People’, then what else can they do? Plenty. That is who you will be voting for in the fall should you vote with anyone with a little ‘r’ next to their name, for these mouthpieces for the plutocratic interests do NOT have 99 percent of ‘the American people’s’ (credit Mitch McConnell, R-KY) best interests in mind… I suppose you could sum it up by comparing Starbucks to Java Joe’s, one is a local Iowan coffee company, and one is a corporate monster, the latter is going to get a whole lot more ‘air time’. But, of course, this analogy is not applicable to Starbucks, one of the more human corporate entities out there~ Have a good one and don’t forget see if anything exciting happens in the next twenty-four hours in Iowa, although, I am not sure I can take too much more of this riveting action. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
