California Burning

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:39 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cool, sunny, tranquil island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning, the 15th day of September, 2014–a very nice week to be on this little sand bar created by that Last Great Ice Age 11,500 years ago…with all of that golden sun, seasonable temperatures and open beaches, bars and restaurants, not to mention all of the other stuff you can do in this magical kingdom is free for the taking, so come on down and visit us anytime of year!  We will, as always, leave the LIGHT on for ya!

At this seven a.m. hour, I imagine many of the professional lobbyists/politicians/media folks in Washington D.C. are getting the cobwebs out of their collective heads and heading out the door to face another ‘Morning in America’, attempting to wrap their heads around problems ‘too big to solve’, at least for this bunch in Congress right about now.  Of course, the problems of everyday man, let alone regular citizens of this country are of little or no concern to those puppets now ‘running’ the ’show’ and as we get closer to this pivotal 2014 Midterm election, where the fate of the U.S. Senate hangs in the balance and possibly our democracy at large with that little letter ‘d‘, thanks to Citizens United and all the billionaires out there, the hor$e$hit is really beginning to fly.

Because you see, if the Republicans hold the House and gain the Senate, the people who are really calling the shots, or want to in the worst way, ‘men’ like the KOCH BROTHERS, the new Robber Barons of our time, will demand that safeguards like the EPA be eliminated from our reality, paving the way for big polluters like they ARE to run rough shod across the entirety of this great land.  DESTROYING it for future generations to come.  “…Why does the water glow in the dark mommy?”, “…and why does it smell funny and light on fire?”.

The media storm over ISIL–an extreme form of evil that must be eradicated by a COALITION of real force– mostly through diplomatic and political channels–has been fueled, on purpose, by the third beheading of a Western journalist, this time a British man.  Of course these tragic and barbaric acts should be condemned by any person with a soul, but let this not lead us into an all out jump from the frying pan into the FIRE.  For that fire is Syria and like Vietnam, this ‘advisory position’ our troops are taking could balloon, again, like Vietnam, into an all out involvement leading to a very dark place we don’t want to go again…

It’s funny to watch our old war hawks on the right side of the aisle, appear en masse on the various U.S. Sunday talk shows, speak as if they were ten feet tall and bullet proof.  Are they going to do the fighting against ISIL? Are their sons’ or daughters’?   NO.  We will leave that fighting up to the poor military “the best trained in the world” who, like the poor new born babies in the country, we send off to do our dirty business, and yet when they return, or are BORN, we suddenly say, “…thanks for your service, but could you move your sleeping bag out of my way?  You are blocking the sidewalk, oh, and no, I don’t have a dime to spare…”. Why don’t you go out and get a job you, oh, wait, didn’t I just say to that man thank you for your service?  Whose side am I on anyway?  Why am I talking to myself?

That’s right, keep thinking those thoughts Senator, and to all of you hard working journalists out there, especially the good folks at MSNBC, you know who you are–have a great week ahead.  Although it may seem like a cold and uncaring world, below all of the hullabaloo and hollering, there still beats a heart in the American body, one that can rally together around what is wrong in this nation and ELECT people to FIX it and to ultimately LEAD it, like a Teddy Roosevelt or a Jack Kennedy.  One more interested in the PEOPLE not his own POCKET.  Not to get rich off of the system that put them their to begin with, i.e. LOBBYISTS like our old pal Eric Cantor, or “Mr. Sell Out” of the week…

If we had more shows like “REAL TIME, with Bill Maher” on TV, great show on Friday by the way with one of Bill’s guests’ Jerry Seinfeld asking, “…are there any Italian ISIS’?”, perhaps the country might begin to WAKE UP and real EYES most of these politicians are puppets to a very big corporate agenda, an agenda that is killing democracy, democracy with that little letter ‘d‘.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the people of my old home state, California today, battling wildfires that are biblical in proportion now a days…  With the drought so bad, many parts of the ‘bread basket of the world’ looking more like the surface of the moon than the lush fertile valley it once was…  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
