Dorothy & the Scarecrow…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:13 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cool, sunny and spooky island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Halloween Eve, a Thursday here in Hyannis/Hyannis Port, the thirtieth day of October, 2014, a quiet morning to be sure on Cape, with yesterday being perhaps the last day of ‘Indian Summer’ for yet another season…

Of course, what would Halloween be without the great film “The Wizard of Oz”, starring Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and of course, the Scarecrow, happily flying along that ‘yellow brick road’ with love and optimism on their side; skipping on down a rather lonely road to find what it was they were looking for in this life.   Dorothy just wanting to get ‘home’, the Tin Man in need of a heart, the Cowardly Lion lacking courage and wanting to ‘find it’, and that “crazy” Scarecrow in search of a brain.

After much strife and struggle–none so bad as the flying monkey’s and other horrors thrown at them by a mean old witch, “the Wicked Witch of the East’– they made their way to “The Emerald City” (NSA headquarters? in Maryland?), to wit they were greeted with blind, cold hostility, hurting their feelings as the FEAR level is pushed to ‘high’… the Wizard attempting to ‘get them off his lawn’ via the intimidating loud noises, flashing lights, yelling, abuse of authority, (little man with a little power syndrome’) and rampant confusion, all done to rid the ‘man behind the curtain’ of those pesky little ’subjects’ once and for all.  Those sad little (working poor) “American people” who want something from him.

His attempts to scare the little girl and her mates failed, his ‘curtain’ pulled back by her Toto, exposing every inch of his very fragile human frame, indeed proving to all the world he was nothing more than an opportunist, a charlatan, some even say, a dreaded ’snake oil salesman’, the very worst kind of salesman–

Save that of a “natural gas” (Methane) sales person…

Lo, if it were not for the great determination of Dorothy and her best pal the Scarecrow, well then, that Wizard would still be behind the curtain, abusing his power, i.e., not helping when he should be helping. Thus proving the old adage, ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease’.  For Dorothy it was an epiphany, for she finally saw things with REAL eyes.  Namely the fact she had the power all along to ‘go home’, it simply had to be pointed out to her by someone who honestly cared…

Someone with no ‘Angle‘– nothing to sell, or profit from, helping only with kindness and compassion.

Someone like her friend the Scarecrow and Glenda, the good witch.

This nation is in the same boat as our friends from Oz. What we have in Washington D.C. is a few powerful plutocrats, the ‘men behind the curtain’ who are gunning for the ultimate prize of all three branches of government by 2016, starting with gaining control of the U.S. Senate, five days from today.

Hence control of the nation and thus the end of said nation as we know it now…

If these clowns are elected into power, rest assured the next two years will be spent listening to reasons we should impeach our very fine, brave and compassionate 44th U.S. President, Barack Obama, who has done more for this country than any president in recent memory, history books will show, least of which was getting the Affordable Care Act passed into LAW.  A feat his predecessors could not accomplish in the seventy plus years of ‘trying’…  Trying is lying my friends!

So get out the VOTE AMERICA!  And vote Democrat, so as to keep OUR democracy with that little letterd’ in tact! The liars in lobbies, the power in politics, the red in republicans!  Who needs Goblins and Ghosts? We got all the scary we need in this ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’ hell bent on turning this country into a gas station just like Mother Russia;  the upcoming battle of International Oligarchs beginning in earnest, pulling five times more carbon out of MOTHER EARTH than her atmosphere can handle–effectively cooking the planet (if carbon emissions continue unabated) by centuries end.  Since 1970 half the species of the earth’s beautiful and irreplaceable animals have become extinct.  If that does not scare you Senator then perhaps we should check for a pulse–BOO!

What the hell are we doing?

Have a nice day everybody, have fun out in my old home town of Denver, Colorado, LoDo to be specific, Rachel Maddow (TRMS, weeknights on MSNBC, not a paid advertisement…)! And please remember not to take any of those wooden nickles from FOX “news”–side effects still include, but are not limited to, blurred vision, a lack of clarity, irritable bowels, ‘numb lips and finger nail sensitivity’ (credit the classic film, circa 1991 “What About Bob“, starring the greats Bill Murray, Julie Hagerty and Richard Dreyfuss)!
