Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Wednesday morning, the thirteenth day of July, 2011, another hot, hazy and humid one here on Cape, as the whole of the country is, as you are most likely well aware, experiencing record setting temperatures, with no end in sight, as a giant high pressure system sits over the mid section of the nation (coupled with the fact that the polar ice caps are almost fifty percent melted), sending the whole of the nation into a dangerous heat wave (stay hydrated!). But have no fear, we always have the immortal words of Senator James, “she’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes,” Inhofe (R-OK), who famously offered US these words only a few years ago, “…global warming is the greatest hoax ever played on the American people.” So well stated Senator, you maniac pilot you! The only problem with your little theory is, putting aside all of that FACTUAL science stuff, it not only is the greatest hoax played on the “American People”, but is also a hoax being played out all over the world. It is the same hoax that is CURRENTLY affecting 3.5 million people on the Somalia/Kenyan border, human beings fleeing Somalia, due to one of the most severe droughts to ever hit the area, dying of hunger and thirst, while the world watches and wonders who is going to help them, let alone change policies globally to curb this growing problem of our planet slowly MELTING due to our continued blindness to carbon emmissions! Back in Washington D.C., the tide has finally turned–the gig is finally up–so to speak, on the whole hostage taking attempt (Stockholm Syndrome) of not only the good and sometimes gullible American People, but also of the U.S. and world economies at large by an ideological terrorist group better known as Republicorp. Yesterday in a stunning press conference, Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell (R-KY), made it clear that they have basically surrendered to the FACT that the debt ceiling MUST be raised, or the republican establishment in this country would be damaged beyond all recognition, without any hope of recovering fully, never really having regained the ‘American People’s’ TRUST. Since the days of my favorite President, our thirty-fifth, Jack Kennedy, the national debt ceiling has been raised 74 times, 7 times during the Bush administration alone, raised for illegal wars, unproductive tax breaks, an unlimited credit card for big pharma, you get the picture, and thus, raising it has been just a matter of course. In a perfect world, WE would all put our egos aside and make our best attempt to get our collective heads and hands around very serious spending issues (U.S. military) and the tax inequality problem (tax code reform), irresponsible and irrevocable policies that have led to this huge national debt, as we look to the Heavens to fulfill OUR collective need for an adult congress to tackle these mounting problems, we hope that they would do so, without, of course, continuing to harm every day working Americans, whose collective PAIN is only benefiting their corporate master’s bottom line profit margins, as they are most certainly doing NOW–a job clearly not for the 112th. What McConnell and the rest of the republican leaders are betting on is this–they will agree to a clean bill on raising the debt ceiling by ‘disagreeing with the premise of raising it’, but will go along with raising it anyway, with no spending cuts and no tax or REVENUE increases, ’saving face’ by, again, betting on the economy continuing to stall (by not passing any of the numerous jobs bills that have already been submitted on the House floor) for the rest of this fiscal year and going into the election year of 2012, thus, positioning themselves as the credible ‘fiscal consevatives’ in the choice of who is better served to run this nation and get our “American People” back to work. Yes, Mitch, it must be Republicorp, the men who have brought down the middle class, created culture wars against women, minorities, gay people, ah, the list goes on ad infinitum. The President of the United States, Barack Obama, deserves a whole lot of credit in dealing with guys like McConnell and Cantor, and putting to ACTION a strategy that holds these clown accountable for their ACTIONS and more importantly, their intentions. Exposing Republicorp for what it IS, by exposing their, when you get the hang of it, glaringly transparent attempts to hijack this country for the plutocratic goals of a few bad apple corporations, well, perhaps I’m being too generous, there are clearly more than a few bad actor corporate entities out there that will, eventually, in this day and age of full disclosure via social media, be outed as the criminal polluting extortionists that they are, but putting that aside for just a moment, the whole point of this exercise is the FACT that you begin to see the belly of beast. When the belly of beast is exposed, such as in the case of Rupert Murdoch, the news mogul and Chairman/majority owner of News Corporation, under fire for misdeeds and a disgusting abuse of power that is unmatched now in the world of journalism, we learn the TRUTH, lose the fear, and to quote my good friends over at MSNBC, ‘we move forward’… When the fear is gone, so is the power of the abuser, and thus, the abuser no longer exists and everything changes. That is exactly what happened yesterday when McConnell went before the world and waved the white flag–as Rachel Maddow displayed so well on her venerable show last night, “The Rachel Maddow Show”, airing every week night at 9 p.m., EDT, only on MSNBC–the minority leader of the Senate looking a little pasty and nervous himself, not so smug, for it seems that some of the boys on Wall Street may have had a few words with him, as business leaders, not only on Wall Street, but from around the country, are standing up and making their voices heard, as many even in the republican party are beginning to look at these guys, scratch their heads and say to themselves, “whose side are these guys really on? It sure doesn’t feel like mine.” Stay tuned, same bat time, same bat channel, not to be confused with the bat $hit station over at FOX NEWS, where they will tell you all about Michelle Bachmann, her “Marriage Vow” (to big business and a bigoted agenda), and the fact that hypocrisy is not just for breakfast anymore, “it’s the gift that keeps on giving all year long…” (credit Christmas Vacation, starring Randy Quaid and Chevy Chase). Have a nice day! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
