Cape Cod Yellow Tulip

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:07 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the rainy, foggy, mild island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this wet Tuesday morning, the 22nd day of May, 2012, on Cape, a nice warm day as well, with all of the flowers, lawns, trees, shrubs and other various Cape Cod greenery thanking the rain gods above for this moisture so needed as we get ready for a hot summer of fun in the sun here on little old Cape Cod!  So bring the kids, bring the dog, inside the car preferably, heck, bring anybody you want and visit, for you will find no other place on these shores of America quite like this ‘neck of the woods’, chalk full of the rich history, as well as abundant wildlife, of this great land WE are still fighting to save from our ‘friends’ in private equity firms that create so many jobs around these here parts.  Yes sir! Oh, wait a moment, this just in from the wire services, a memorandum addressed to Cory Booker, the fine, normally, Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, so, I suppose, I will just go ahead and give it to you verbatim, keeping in mind the Champagne was flowing like water in many republican circles after Mr. Booker appeared on “Meet the Press” this past Sunday, as a supposed ’surrogate’, with notes!, for our very fine President Barack Obama who gave a stellar press conference at the NATO summit in Chicago yesterday, explaining to the world that although private equity firms have their place in our overall economy in the U.S., they normally, as their, to borrow a phrase from our pal from Kentucky, Senator Mitch McConnell, ‘number one goal’, is not to “create jobs”, as Mitt Romney would have you believe, originally claiming to have created over 100,000 jobs, scaled significantly down to 10,000, no, on the contrary, private equity firms like Bain Capital are interested in that last word–CAPITAL–and increasing it to the max, and in the case of Bain, that meant Romney and his partners walked away with hundreds of millions of dollars, after plunging the company they were ’saving’ into massive debt, utilized complicated tax loopholes in U.S. bankruptcy law, and layed off thousands of workers, closed plants and left real live U.S. citizens (without a voice), twisting in the ever increasing winds of our times…  Look no further than Bill Black’s book “The Best Way to Rob a Bank is to Own One”, a must read, where he spells out the differences between venture capital and private equity, where Bain fits into that equation, and the overall banking debacle in general–you will be stunned regarding those answers, answers that goes a long way in DIS-crediting Mitt Romney’s platform that because of his ‘business experience’ in the private sector, mostly as a “Job Creator”, really?, he is much better suited to meet the needs of, again, I borrow from ole’ Mitch, “the American People”. All of them.  Wow. That is a stretch.  So, without further adieu, may I present without further political interruption this memo from the Heritage Foundation to Mayor Cory Booker, a love letter of sorts, where republicans now proudly state on various Internet sites, “we stand by Cory”…  And, ACTION! “Dear Mr. Booker, on behalf of private equity firms from around the world, we owe you a debt of gratitude for hauling the GOP’s water on “Meet the Press” this past Sunday.  You helped a great deal in confusing the public regarding the BIG LIE that private equity firms are in the business of creating jobs, not wealth, and helping out our candidate for President, Mitt Romney, to sell his ‘logic’ of having experience as a ‘job creator’ (a good one!), and taking some of the demonetization of private equity in general out of the equation, at least for now.  Even if this only works for a day or so, it helped out a great deal.  The check is in the mail, wink wink, nudge, nudge, and although I too am ‘nauseated’ by these left wing attacks on our bread and butter, namely, ripping off idiot investors, companies, workers and the country in general, your brave contribution to the republican party did not go unnoticed.  You sir are the best darn ’surrogate’ for President Obama we could have asked for.  Of course, you will have the good taste to keep that whole ‘check’ thing out of the media, won’t you?  Again, thank you from all of us here at The Heritage Foundation, we could not be more pleased…”  Sincerely, one of the men behind the curtain. And cut, print, wrap! Have a nice day folks, please keep on dodgin’ those wooden nickles offered up by FOX ‘NEWS’, they may contain over 596 deadly chemicals used in the unregulated FRACKING process of shale rock all over this beautiful country of OURS.  Fracking for ‘natural gas’, the real reason the republicans are fighting so hard, trust me, to win the Executive, as the likes of Exxon-Mobile, Koch Industries and other big polluters continue to make their billions at your family’s expense!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
