Greetings and a good morning to you from the sandy shores of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! The winds are whipping up the sand and surf as I write this in my little loft at my home here in Osterville. I just returned from Nantucket Sound, and as the sun rose over Hyannis Port, I noticed that the weather was actually seasonable for this time of year…I wonder how much longer we will be able to use the word “seasonable”… It seems that Saturday is only day of the week where geo-political games take a day off. Sunday is set aside for the various “news” programs that are designed to take a look back at the week that has just passed us by, review the various proposals on the floor of the Senate and House of Representatives, take a critical look at what our President is trying to accomplish to make the world a better and safer place to live in and how we as citizens of this great country can add a voice of reason, calm and constructive solutions to the mounting problems we face as a nation as well as the world at large. Oh wait, that is a parallel universe where adults rule the day and children, especially juvenile delinquent children are either ignored or called out for their ignorance, hate and violent rhetoric. My bad. The reality of the situation is this, corporate owned media, the monster that is “on” 24/7, is an instrument that takes “reason” completely out of the picture and replaces it with the tool of 21st century politics (control and power), namely fear and more fear. Fear is irrational and dangerous. To keep the masses down, one needs only look to FOX News and the “powers that be” that use that medium to do exactly what I just described. The talking points are transparent, to the trained eye, and these weapons of mass destruction only inhibit the growth of a nation, much like high fructose corn syrup impedes the natural growth of an innocent child–changing his body chemistry, rendering him overweight, unambitious and despondent, a perfect soil to grow America’s new favorite crop–FEAR and hate. Just watch ABC’s “This Week” and watch big hitters like Peggy Noonan from the Wall Street Journal. She is a piece of work. She sits at the round table with a smirk on her face as wide as the Grand Canyon and when she speaks, her verbs and nouns, as well as her adjectives, define the word patronizing. The sad point to this ray of light is that she represents the moderate speak of the right wingnut/tea party coalition of morons. It has been said by individuals as famous as Newt Gingrich (former Speaker of the House (R) and possible Presidential candidate in 2012) who said of America recently, “I don’t think I have seen this division in my lifetime, it is as bad as it was in the 1850’s…” the height of the Civil War. It is clear that bigotry and hate have overtaken the souls of many American citizens who have been hood winked into believing the whoppers that puppets like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh throw out on a daily basis–the talking points of hate. The talking points of hate. The colors of a rainbow are not white. They are a myriad of colors all blended together to create such a beautiful display of creative intelligence. Diversity, like in the animal kingdom, breeds PROGRESS, evolution and a movement upwards, not backwards. The fear that exists within the hearts of people who are so afraid that they might lose their power is so clear a five year old could see it. And yet, nearly half of the American electorate would rather follow, as Keith Olberman put it, an IDIOT like Sarah, “I’m a coward who shoots wolves from a helicopter”, Palin, and her mindless rhetoric not fit for a junior high school basketball court. So watch the televison shows of the corporate revived Rome and make up your own mind, for that is what it is going to take–a whole lot of people standing up and saying, “wait a minute, I’m not going to listen to you anymore. You are a liar and an idiot; who stands on exclusion, hate, bigotry and fear. Have a nice day folks! Peace~ M
