Cape Sun

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 12:59 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  Good to be with you on this Saturday morning, the twenty-fifth day of June, 2011, and on this early summer morning here in Osterville, I bid you and yours a very fine and fair adieu.  A little overcast this a.m. here on Cape, as it has been in Washington D.C. for the past, oh, I don’t know, eleven years or so, where everyday is just another humiliating kick in the crotch for the ‘American People’…although most don’t even know they are being kicked to the curb, under a bus, and run over by the likes of Grover Norquist, some say the most powerful man in Washington next to the President.  Old Grove has put forth a “pledge” that many, if not most, Americans have not heard about, but soon will.  This hostage taking pledge is designed, and I quote Mr. Norquist verbatim now, “to shrink government down to the size where ‘I’ could drown it in a bathtub.”  The method he plans to utilize in this extreme dereliction of duty on behalf of the ‘American People’, is to hold members of congress accountable to the ink they spilled on the paper with the words, “we will never, ever raise taxes no matter what the circumstances”– essentially, stagnating the revenue stream that once flowed into U.S. government coffers, while proposing yet more tax breaks for the wealthiest among us, along with the corporations that are beginning to eat this country alive.  All this while simultaneously slashing medicare, medicaid, social security, public education, the environmental protection agency, home heating oil for the poor, ah, the list goes on ad infinitum.  The American People are being held in what I have been calling a “Stockholm Syndrome” (a situation where the captives, ‘the American people’, feel sorry for their captors, ‘Republicorp’ and the puppets in congress they control) and because of the likes of say a, FOX NEWS, that is a wholly owned subsidiary of said Republicorp (a political party dominated by corporate plutocratic interests), the “American People” (the republicans speak so often for and with such deep ‘affection’) remain in the dark, poorer and weaker, as the nation’s premier “news” organization continues spinning LIES and innuendo, presenting their misguided horse$hit as FACTS…that have never been, nor ever will be, rooted in reality, rather, these “facts” are joined at the hip with the sick, slick and demented wishes of a select few who could not care less if the whole of the United States of America went down in flames–just as long as it was not THEIR gated community.  This gross dereliction of duty stems from the conflict of interest inherent within serving two masters.  On the one hand, Senators and congressman take an oath, as was so well pointed out by Van Jones last night on the “Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell”, airing every week night at eight p.m., EDT, only on MSNBC, where they swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. On the other, you have this ‘pledge’ by some quack a$$hole who is not even an elected official, yet is, for he represents all of the lobbyists out there who are f’king up this country but good, demanding that republican freshman and seasoned vets of the House and Senate alike, fall in line with this neo-Nazi mentality that the “American People” will eventually understand and come to REJECT, as they all begin to comprehend that the very people that stole their wallet and helped them “look for it” WERE the very individuals they trusted enough to vote for in the 2010 mid-term elections, elections that were based on a LIE, for the whole of the country was not concerned about the now ongoing cultural wars like abortion, gay rights and even lingering racism, no, they were concerned about their mortgages, their jobs, or lack therein, and the cost of living in this country, seeing and feeling that they are working so hard and getting none of the benefits, while the richest top one percent has seen it’s income skyrocket to the point where the wealthiest 400 people in this country own more than the bottom 50 percent combined–or 150 million people!  If that does not tell the story, I don’t know what does.  That is why I ask that “you” don’t take any “wooden nickles”–for that is exactly what the republican leaders, their masters, and the corporate owned airwaves, like FOX NEWS, want you do–to believe, buy and swallow.  On a lighter note, I wish to say to my good friend who helped me get through quite a storm and does not even know it, Mr. Keith Olbermann, a big WELCOME BACK!! and thank him for his great premier week of “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, that ground breaking show that was once on MSNBC, but now can be seen every week night at 8 p.m., EDT on ‘Current TV’, check your local listings for the channel if you wish to see the best in action.  For it was Keith that made MSNBC what it is today, with the likes of great reporters and shows anchored by Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Shultz, and beyond.  We missed you Keith and please, stick around for a while will ya? Have a nice Saturday folks and, should you desire, please say a little prayer for all the good people, AMERICAN PEOPLE, in the upper Midwest who are dealing with the Missouri River, the town of Minot in particular, dealing with a flood that must be another one of those pesky hoaxes that Senator James, “she’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes”, Inhofe (R-OK) warns US about.  A man who, of course, is famous for saying that, ‘global warming is the greatest hoax ever played on the American People’…yeah, tell that to the folks on the Missouri River Senator–you chump!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
