Dock by the Bay

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:14 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  At 5 a.m., straight up, in the little seaside village of Osterville, with the stars out once again, I bid you and yours a fair and fine adieu.  What can I tell you folks, it’s the holiday season and what would be more enjoyable than an interview with Rachel Maddow and John Stewart, of the “Rachel Maddow Show”, and the “Daily Show”, respectively, that I just finished watching a few moments ago…where the 64,000 dollar question of Bill Maher’s point, as well as Keith Olberman’s, that equating the insanity of FOX NEWS and relative sanity of MSNBC are NOT one and the same, was lost on Stewart.  It seems to me that, although I love John, he missed a big opportunity to help the helpless, the ones without a voice, the ones who have been burned by the greed of the corporate puppet masters who are hell bent on destroying a DEMOCRACY that has been a beacon to the world for over 235 years now…  When you have record unemployment in this great nation, playing in a rigged game, favoring those with the gold, hence those who make the rules, we have a problem Houston.  Those jobs have been shipped overseas forever, not coming back, and with a system that is geared to reward only those who were born under the right flag of a random “purity” test, a “Christian” coalition, comprised not so much of religious ideologues, but more along the lines of a crooked capitalistic free market monopoly, we have a problem Houston.  If the mark of a great journalist these days is to “get the story”, even if it is a false one, and, then, to make him or her an even better journalist, get them to raise the stakes by promoting “it” as the truth, for the sake of the corporate ratings, hence advertisement dollars, then we have an even bigger problem Houston.  And, if we have a corporate bullhorn, as loud as GOD himself, with 500,000 watts screaming 24/7 bent on brainwashing, WE have the BIGGEST problem Houston!  Listening to Stewart, it was as if he did not understand the real point of that montage “Comedy Central” put together of the FOX NEWS lies mixed in with the impassioned and justifiable anger that was represented by Ed Shultz, of the “ED SHOW”, only on MSNBC, during a portion of the “Rally to restore Sanity” that was held in Washington D.C. on October 30, 2010– a man who goes to bat for the common man in this country every day–all of this begs the question, “where is the disconnect here?”  This is a real war for this country’s identity, for it is on the verge of losing it’s soul, health and pocket book.  This country is based on a DEMOCRACY, which to those on Wall Street see as a nine letter word like liberal with two extra L’s.  As we all sit back idly and watch the wolves (no offense to real wolves anywhere in the world) take our country from right under our feet, and say, “that’s OK, please, take what you need and, by the way, why don’t you stomp on my head while you are at it,” watching the bullies literally steal our milk money… many of us will look back at these days and ask a very simple question, “why didn’t someone say and DO something?”  WHY did we let them take our country, why did we not fight for our FREEDOM, as basic to logic as the sun rises in the east–that we KNEW somehow within our basic horse sense souls–why did we not fight for THAT, that which really matters in the end, you know, for our grandchildren–little things like the climate crisis, the corporate takeover of our thinking, our food, our water, our future, our money, our jobs, our health care, our environment and our basic dignity as citizens of a country that was based on “WE THE PEOPLE”, not ‘Live better, Walmart’…  The President of the United States has now seemed to have caved in to the very powerful rising PLUTOCRACY while in South Korea, ironically, and although I KNOW how steep the climb is, it matters not, while we listen to yet another spin such as, well, we’ll get ‘em next year… With Citizens United going along just the way they had planned, that tax break for the top 2 percent in this nation will never, ever come up again, as the middle class is relegated to the back of the bus, and as our seniors and out of work real Americans with college educations, PhD’s, begin to serve fries to our corporate overlords from Bahrain, China and “pick any friendly national corporate tax shelter in the world”, we will all see the FOLLY in not standing up to what is really going on, under the headlines…with some rare exceptions from good people like Rachel out there.  So, although John Stewart is funny, he is not Maddow, nor is he Olbermann, or Shultz or O’Donnell– for these great men and women have risen above and beyond the call of duty in their due diligence of attaining FACTS and reporting them as such, not so much as opinion, but as a WAKE UP call for our nation to see that we have been had, hoodwinked and hijacked by some slick and cunning predators who will stop at nothing to reach their goals of the new “American” gospel, “PROFIT OVER PEOPLE”… Have a good day everybody.     PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
