Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, the sixteenth day of August, 2011, a coolish, cloudy start to the day on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age. We received a heavy dose of rain yesterday, as I took the day off from politics and the mind numbing television machine, trying to digest some of the horse hockey that was offered up at the Iowa straw poll over the week end. A media circus that provided US all with the fried butter sticks, a fair like atmosphere and the candidates of the republican party who used every dog whistle they possessed in their arsenal to whip up support for the cause of the plutocratic mission–’to insure that Barack Obama is a one term President’… Worthy news coming from Ames, home to the great Iowa State University, was ‘T paw’, former Governor Tim Pawlenty, dropping out of the race, while Michelle, “I’m not a homophobe”, Bachmann, gaining some momentum. However, the big news came not from Iowa, rather, from South Carolina, where Texas Governor Rick Perry made his announcement that he is indeed throwing his hat into the ring for the position of 45th President of the United States of America. God help him, and GOD help US, for Rick Perry is the teavangelical/plutocrat’s (Republicorp of America) wet dream, as he has proven that he alone can take that Christian based core of the tea party, combine it with Republicorp’s ‘business’ values and run with crazy all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I don’t say it often folks, or perhaps I don’t say it often enough… “Hee-Yuck! Don’t touch!” Can someone say Texas Tea? Can someone give me an Amen? Can someone say it’s just another Christmas Day Texas Miracle? You bet you can, ’cause ‘ole Rick is on the job! For who can argue that Rick has put together more jobs in that state than any other in the country? Well, to be fair to every credible economist and political pundit worth his or her salt, I can. Those jobs represent what Rick and his soon to be puppet masters wanted all along, more and more minimum wage positions that put this country on track to become a third world, slave wage economy, where only the ‘people’, like corporations, and the top one percent make any hay out of a very bad situation that was handed over to US by another former Texas governor, our former ‘commander in chief’, Mr. George W. Bush, who rode this economy and country into a ditch via two unpaid for wars, a trillion dollar sweetheart deal for big pharma and the two GIANT tax breaks of 2001 and 2003, resulting in, combined with the lack of regulation on Wall Street and the housing market, the greatest recession this country has seen since the Great Depression over eighty years ago. Most of the ‘jobs’ old Rick is speaking of came as a result of geographic luck, and don’t really amount to a hill of beans in the grand scheme of things, moreover, his record on children without health insurance, with 22 percent of Texas youths being without any medical at all, due to his dismantling of the C.H.I.P. program and ‘privatizing it’, you know, ’cause the free market knows all, ya’ll, shows just what kind of a ‘compassionate conservative’ he really IS, and would be as President. Rick Perry may have attended Texas A&M, rather than Yale, but he is still an elitist puppet of big corporate interests, hell bent on destroying what is left of the original, and still the best, U.S. of A… Rick, you are not a representative of GOD. You sir, are a representative of Walmart, and should be called out as such. As we get nearer to the election, to quote the great Howard Dean of Vermont, via “The Lucille Ball Show”, Rick Perry will have ‘a lot of ‘esplainin to do…, for we no longer live in a world where the wool is so easily pulled over our collective eyes, and we no longer live in a world where bigotry and racism still are considered HUMAN. Perhaps you should read the real words of Jesus, Rick, take them in, ‘pray about it’, and get back to US, because we all know what a WOLF in sheep’s clothing looks like. Have a nice day folks and keep on staying away from Rupert Murdoch’s wooden nickles, coming in the form of the ‘beautiful people’ over at FOX NEWS, who could not be more in the dark about REALITY than they CURRENT(tv)-ly are. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
