Christmas Sea-sun

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 11:35 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, cold and calm island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this 12th day of December, 2013, Happy Birthday Nikki Lambert of Osterville!, a gorgeous one out there on the waters of Nantucket Sound, albeit a bit chilly, but a nice break from all of the grey clouds that have hovered over these here parts for quite some time…  The energy around the nation right now is high, as Christmas is just around the bend and all of the Grinches in D.C. are just about to wrap up what many are calling “the worst congress EVER”, only passing 55 bills into law, an all time low, while obstructing anything of value President Obama throws their way, such as immigration reform, a jobs act, or raising the minimum wage.  There was, however, a bi-partisan effort of late, spearheaded by congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray of Washington.  A modest “small” budget proposal (put forth yesterday by those congressional negotiators) that would restore 63 billion in domestic and military spending, taking from the automatic (spending) sequester cuts,
Federal monies from “parks to the pentagon” (with spending offset by 85 billion in new fees and a reduction in spending leaving enough for a largely symbolic 20 billion dollar reduction in a 17 plus trillion dollar debt), avoiding another government shutdown as well as not defaulting on our debts.  The agreement, still to be passed by the House and Senate, should actually pass as we finally witnessed the Speaker of that House, John Boehner, react venomously to a reporter’s question regarding the opposition of what seems to be the fourth branch of government these days, the “tea party”, or more accurately, the corporate mandate via plutocratic powers such as the Koch brothers (billionaire owners of Koch Industries, “pollution is our middle name and middle finger!” or the newly fanged Heritage Action, whose ultimate goal is to control the levers of democracy, ever cushioning their profit and overall bottom line…the only thing they care about, yes those guys, asked what he thought ‘they’ would say about it, to wit he almost screamed, “…you mean the fu#kers who were against it before they even looked at it?!!  Those @@##$$’s?” Boehner turning a color that I don’t think I have ever seen before, his face flushed with red and orange, flashin’ at you like a jelly fish!  Like the green Grinch, Dr. Seuss gave to all of us so many years ago, these villains, many would say economic terrorists, have, as the Speaker stated so clearly yesterday, “…used our members and the American people,” and only see our Federal government as a tool to use towards their ends and to hell with the poor and the struggling working class who can barely make ends meet in a cold and hostile job market… a free market capitalism that has failed 99 percent of what the republicans always refer to “the American People”.  A free market that will not pay a living wage, thus keeping the “Grand Canyon” gap alive and well between the haves and the have nots.  Merry Christmas A$$holes!  I hope one of those Dickens’ ghosts visits you in your mansion on Oyster Harbors!  For as 1.3 million Americans lose their unemployment benefits directly after Christmas, while billions are further cut from the S.N.A.P. food stamp program, not to mention kids getting cut from ‘Head Start’, we have to wonder what, if anything, this fine leader of ours, President Barack Obama, can do in the next three years?  It seems he can’t even attend a funeral without getting lambasted by a bunch of delusional dirtballs over on FOX NEWS or take your pick of the right wing talk/hate radio…  Raul Castro, really?  The guy looked like a scared church mouse and is no Gaddafi is he Senator McCain?  Oh well, ’tis the season for silly and stupid.  Would it be amazing if a guy like Boehner or someone like him came out on stage one day and confessed his disdain for this whole front he has endured during his entire political career?  In other words, he was visited by the three ghosts, past, present and future, and could not escape the reality of his soul’s position in not only this life, but the next.  He comes out to the podium and announces he is leaving the republican party and has decided to retire in the Keys, Key West to be specific and open up an old folks home, with him, Mr. Speaker, giving ball room dancing lessons while working on his tan, golf game and collection of rare scotches.  Yes, he has given all of his wealth to the poor thus heeding what Jesus said so many moons ago, “…it is easier to pass a camel through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to pass into the Kingdom of Heaven.” Have a nice day and week end folks ever remembering the reality that FOX NEWS is a highly sophisticated brain washing operation that does not have your best interests in mind.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
