Cape Cod Door

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:28 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  So great, as always, to be with you on another warm October morning here in Osterville, and as I opened up my front door, as seen above, to this extraordinary day, I realized how lucky I am to be writing this commentary.  Yesterday, I witnessed yet another act of brutality that struck home with me in, ironically, the great state of Kentucky, involving Lauren Valle, a ‘moveon.org’ supporter, about as threatening as a church mouse, and communicator of the very real reality of the merger of the republican party and multi-national corporations (she was at a Rand Paul rally exercising her First Amendment rights, protesting, satirically and peaceably) when she was ‘marked’ by Paul supporters, rabid supporters, who, caught on video tape, surrounded her, as they recognized her, and proceeded, one man in particular, Timothy Proffitt, to bring her to the ground, violently, and stomp on her head, injuring her and the integrity of the whole process of elections in this great country of ours.  It hit home with me, for, as you may know, I too had my head bashed in, although I lost consciousness and alot of blood, on Nantucket, via a criminal cop who is now the Sergeant of the Nantucket Police Department, during the summer of  2003, as I too was an unwelcome guest in an otherwise ‘police state’ that Nantucket has unfortunately become.  That is the rub here, for we all know that money buys muscle, votes and most of all people’s loyalty, misguided as it may be, and when taken to a grand scale, such as the election of ‘representatives’ who will ‘lead’ this country out of the darkness it finds itself in, well, ‘we’ve got a problem Houston!’… With 6 days left until the mid-term elections that will determine the direction this country will go in the next two years, i.e., backwards, forwards or remaining in neutral, please keep in mind that it is still all up to YOU, your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors who may or may not know what is really going on in the big world of money laundering (’US’ Chamber of ‘Commerce’), crooked Supreme Court decisions (Citizens United) and the literal ‘buying American’, the systematic corporate takeover moveon.org so rightly and astutely communicates in some of its’ most recent ads depicting a woman in a bomb shelter in fear of ‘Republicorp’, an Orwellian nightmare scenario where the military industrial complex meets the Godzilla of the ever thirsty, blood thirsty, corporate modus operandi of “PROFIT OVER PEOPLE…”  Let us take a stroll down memory lane shall we?  Let us look only as far back as most Americans can go, historically, at this juncture, and revisit what President Obama was trying to say recently about how the republican party “drove the car into a ditch, while they watched US pull them out of it, complaining, in the process of pulling the car out of said ditch, about the scratch on the bumper, and if there was anything we could do about that…”  Al Franken, the esteemed Senator from the great state of Minnesota and personal friend of mine whom I last saw in Vail, Colorado at the Red Lion, where I had lunch with the former writer for ‘Saturday Night Live’ and his son, along with my Mastiff, ‘Jake’, prior to his win in that heated Senate race in Minnesota, while he told me he appreciated my kind words regarding our pal Rush Limbaugh, the “Tokyo Rose” of the republican “cause”, as I lauded his classic book, “Rush Limbaugh is a big, fat idiot“…, I had no idea at that time he would be rewriting Obama’s very astute concept of why we are in the mess, economically (as well as a host of other issues as a nation), we are in today and as I present his words, verbatim, I would ask you to consider what the “republican tea party”, “republicorp” or just plain old PLUTOCRACY has in mind for this nation should they regain power in the House of Representatives come November 2, 2010… for, and I use Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell’s words here against him when he said, “our number one goal, as republicans, is to make sure that Obama is a one term President,” with no mention of solving problems that are Paramount to our very survival as a nation.  For if these “men” and women are elected to act as the puppets for said corporations, we will not only go backwards, but ‘they’ will finally get the job done and, in the immortal words of Jeff Bridges from the classic film, “The Big Lebowski”, … “well, they finally did it man, they killed my car.”  With no further adieu, I bring you Senator Franken, and a recent speech with the President of the United States of America somewhere in “America”, home of the brave and land of the free, or is it the other way around?  AND ACTION:  “When the President came to office, not only had the car gone in the ditch, but had flipped over and was rolling down a steep embankment.  We, the “American People” were in the backseat, but the current administration had removed all the seat belts, so we were all flying around the interior of this car; as it was rolling, flipping and careening down this steep embankment heading to a 2000 foot cliff, and at the bottom of that cliff were jagged rocks, and alligators.  Now at noon, on January 20, 2009, as the car careened towards the cliff, George W. Bush JUMPED OUT OF THE CAR, and President Obama somehow managed to dive in, take the wheel and take control of the vehicle just in time, inches before it went off the precipice, and he and congress, started inching this wrecked car back up the embankment– now you can’t push a car up an embankment as fast as it careened down an embankment, but we got it going in the RIGHT DIRECTION and slowly we’ve gotten ourselves up that embankment, past the ditch, upon the shoulder of the road…that’s what happened and that’s where we ARE.”  Thank you Al Franken and thank you Lawrence O’Donnell for making that the “Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell”, airing every week, save Friday’s, at 10 p.m. or 1 a.m., only on MSNBC, for we all need to KNOW and remember where the republican philosophy, PROFIT OVER PEOPLE, has taken us in just the past ten years alone, not to mention the past thirty, where we all seem to hover around the shrine of actor, comedian Ronald Reagan, who was not a saint, far from it, and began this whole thing with the systematic dismantling of the regulatory checks and balances, via Donald Regan and companies like Merrill Lynch, that has kept this country safe from thieving wolves everywhere (my apologies to real, natural wolves all around the world, no offense was intended).  Please remember to VOTE on NOVEMBER 2, 2010…your car will thank you for it, not to mention your health and sanity.  Have a wonderful day everybody!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
