Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this windy, rainy, raw day here again on Cape, Osterville to be specific, and on a Tuesday I am happy to report there is absolutely nothing of consequence going on in the world today–only puppy dogs and smiles all round… ah, if that were only the case, someday perhaps…. With the President of the United States in Indonesia at present hour, the likes of Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell, John, “billy bob”, Boehner, and Eric, “the weenie”, Cantor are busy showing the tea party the service entrance to the Wianno Country Club (or, fill in the blank of your favorite upscale club, anywhere, USA or abroad), giving them advice on how to deal with billionaires who don’t seem to have the heart to tell them they are nothing more than indentured servants–here WE all are, the “American People” who have been struggling for the past 30 years in an uphill battle of the haves’ and have nots’. My friend David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize winning author of “Free Lunch”, a must read, was on “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann,” last night, who will, there is a GOD, return to his critically acclaimed show tonight, where he spoke to the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003–originally meant to be temporary, sorry “mouse” it’s a FACT, and what adding another 4.1 trillion dollars to the national debt, equivalent to adding up the costs of the Iraq war, the stimulus, TARP and the health care bill combined, would actually mean in the long run, when by doing so would prove, finally, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that these “members” of congress are NOT on the side of said “American People” and wish to continue to process of turning this country into a PLUTOCRACY, all under the guise and cover of a fake grass roots effort, originally created by Koch Industries among others, called the “tea party”–what adding all of that debt would actually mean to the economic outlook for this country and indeed world at large, or rather our shrinking place in it. Historically speaking, from a high economics viewpoint, cutting taxes on the wealthy does nothing for the economy, to the tune of a return of 35-40 cents on the dollar, compared to $1.75, on the higher levels, when a traditional stimulus, or even a tax break for the middle class is introduced–reason? People who don’t have a whole lot of disposable income tend to spend it on little things that sustain LIFE such as food, shelter, and basic survival needs, thus, putting money BACK into the economy, not stowing it away in off shore tax shelters, banks and the like. With the outpouring of LOVE, by some, for our former President, many consider the worst President in American history, George “W” Bush, and based on the way the world is right now, who can argue that FACT, old “W” is launching his new book, “something to do with decisions, ’cause I’m the decider…”, I think that was it, where he “makes no apologies for his actions and has no regrets,”… is a little tough to take this early in the morning, especially if your were feeling a little nauseous to begin with. Our country is in the mess it is right now BECAUSE of that man and his pit boss “Dick” Cheney who got more out of the relationship than “W” did, getting filthy rich on Halliburton stock during the Iraq LIE, while that same company has been busy recently making bogus cement that CAUSED the Deep Water Horizon disaster, and then finally creating a loop hole in the EPA that you could shoot a 12 gauge shot gun blast through, back in 2005, that has now allowed his company, along with the evil KOCH BROTHERS, to rape and pillage our land via “fracking”, the hydraulic fracturing of shale rock in over 37 states now, with poisonous, deadly chemicals, 596 of them, pumped into the earth, under high water pressure, that then seeps into the water supplies, as well as into the air via air born contaminants pushed out from these ill-fated wells, and is making people, poor people, all over this great land of OURS, sicker and sicker, with no way out, as the EPA, the environmental protection agency, has no teeth to investigate these claims and moreover, no regulatory muscle to do anything about it if they did. Why don’t we all just tell REPUBLICORP that we give up, build your Nazi camps and gas us, because you are, in effect, already doing so. The likes of Boehner, McConnell and Cantor, along with their puppet masters, the “man behind the curtain”, the multi-national corporations that can smell blood, are doing this as I write this entry for today, they are looking to the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina as a guide–awaiting yet another natural disaster, any disaster, or create one, by going to war with Iran, plummeting this country into a deeper rabbit hole than it is already in. WE ARE IN TROUBLE as a nation and our President is apologizing to the republicans far too often and far too sincerely, for he does not seem to understand that this is a war, a war for the very heart and soul of the AMERICA that was created by men like Thomas Jefferson, whose vision of the DEMOCRACY that we hold so dear is being “fracked” by a crazy group of rich white men who don’t care about our “grand children’s” future, for if they did, they would not want it to be without glaciers, polar ice caps (as well as Polar Bears) and rain forests–not to mention all of the beautiful creatures that adorn our amazing little blue rock we all call earth. WAKE UP AMERICA and see the writing on the wall! Have a wonderful day everybody! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
