Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Veteran’s Day here in the United States, where we honor our men and women in uniform who have stood bravely fighting for wars that were not created by them, but complained not. Men and women who have boarded planes for far away places where bullets and bombs await them, men and women who brave those elements of war that no one who lives in peace wishes to discuss, men and women who fight the fight they are told to fight, without thought to their own personal safety, while being away from the ones they LOVE so much, being the greatest sacrifice of all, all under the banner of the red, white and blue of our glorious flag that has stood the test of time for over 235 years now…to those men and women, I take my hat off, for WE, back here in the states will never know your sacrifice and moreover, your commitment to your brothers and sisters in arms who are with you so many, many miles from home–GOD BLESS YOU ALL! Col. Larry Wilkerson was a guest on “the new hot loverboy’s”, (a quote by our friend Glenn, “puppet master, my puppet master,” Beck recently on his poopy pants show-”The Glenn Beck Show” on FOX) MSNBC show, “The Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell”– Lawrence O’Donnell, from my adopted home town of Boston, Massachusetts, asked some very profound questions of the former State Department Chief of Staff under Colin Powell and present during the first years of the Cheney/Bush administration, Colonel Wilkerson, what he thought of the lack of a straight answer when Bush was asked by NBC’s Matt Lauer if he would have still gone to war with Iraq if they KNEW there were no weapons of mass destruction (WMD’S)… His conclusion was that whether or not they KNEW, which he hinted they did, that Iraq had no weapons to speak of, or whether they did not, highly unlikely, mattered little…what mattered was a quote from an author that read, “The sacrifice of brave men does not justify the pursuit of an UNJUST cause.” This is, of course, what we all wanted to know, for in the end, redemption is only reserved for those who are HONEST enough with themselves that they transform from their former selves and into the “self” that they were long before being poisoned by the influence of others…whose “goals” had nothing to do with, “bringing peace and DEMOCRACY to the middle east”–because it was all for the little three letter word we all seem to avoid like the plague–OIL. The name of the game has been oil since the beginning of the industrial revolution, and as technology has outpaced our human souls, we have only our blindness to blame. As the President visits South Korea and the G-20 Summit, restricted by so many factors out his control, including the moron whose name will not be uttered here, well, OK, Alan Simpson, of, where else, Wyoming, (no offense to my little brother who lives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming) who blindsided the President with his version of “draconian austerity”, hurting the poor and rewarding the corporations who pay his bills, all in the name of “balancing the budget” for the next wave of insane republicans working for the “man behind the curtain”, who will then take it a step further and bring an end to the middle class in this country– yes, as the President is away on official business that is actually helping the republican cause, “men” like Darrell Issa (R-CA), the alter ego of Jon Hamm of “Mad Men”, who looks more like the character than Hamm does, is busy putting together hearing after hearing, witch hunt after witch hunt, to the tune of 7 a week for 40 weeks, much like GOD and Noah, 280 in all, for the complete and utter destruction of a very good man who is trying to do a very good thing, I think we all can agree, in keeping our DEMOCRACY alive and away from the blood sucking vampires of the corporate milieu that this country is headed towards…brainwashing people into believing just about anything they hear, see, taste, feel and smell on the new Nazi channel FOX “NEWS”–where countless Americans get their “news” everyday, and because many are unemployed by the very same men who own the network and support shipping their jobs overseas for the glory of REPUBLICORP’s modus operandi, “PROFIT OVER PEOPLE”, they will have plenty of time to really melt their brain, watching Glenn Beck and his magic puppet show, ironic no?, and fall into the trap of delusion that these “men”, who now own Washington, D.C., promulgate 24/7 on that horrible noise producing station of LIES, LIES and more LIES, bringing them further and further from the LIGHT of TRUTH–embodied in the continual statement that they CARE about said, ad nauseum, “The American People”…the President seems to be very alone indeed in this nation, a nation that has been hoodwinked and hijacked by the corporate milieu. Do NOT be fooled by men who sell oil procured from the dead body of a lifeless snake. Take heart, for the TRUTH to what these people are really doing is as simple as understanding the bigger meaning behind the novel, “Catcher in the Rye,” or even better, the premise of the classic 1950’s film, starring James Dean, “Rebel, Without a Cause,” where the hero is desperately trying to tell his parents (the American People) to get it together and SEE that LOVE is the only answer–all else is just background noise…. LOVE is something we all want, and if you ever read any of the great philosopher Maslow, you would know that ALL human beings are the same–we all want and need, under his “Maslow’s hierarchy of needs,” first and foremost water, air and food to live, second, we need shelter and a place to call home, third we need LOVE and belonging, fourth, we need a camaraderie and friendship, and finally, the fifth and paradoxically, the most important, is SELF ACTUALIZATION–for if done right, can actually supersede the first, the very air we breathe… SELF ACTUALIZATION– that comes only on a blue moon, for it brings forth alchemy and a rebirth that propels one into a different plane–is bringing about a larger purpose, one beyond the needs of just one individual, that can and has changed the very fabric of this little blue rock we all call home for the moment–earth. This is why education is so important to this country, as we continue to put the cart in front of the horse, for without it, very few of US can reach this level of self-less-ness, looking to spend our lives on the very things that made Jesus himself say, “what greater LOVE can there be than to lay down one’s life for one’s brother…” May you and yours have a wonderful Veterans Day and may GOD’S GRACE always be upon your shoulder. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
