Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! So good, as always, to be with you on this Sunday morning, the seventh day of August, 2011, a rainy one on Cape, as Osterville is being drenched at this hour in a late summer downpour… I was planning on taking the week end off, however, as the news came on Friday night, that the once highly regarded Standard and Poor’s, an international credit rating agency, downgraded the U.S. Treasury notes from a AAA rating to a AA plus, a move that some in the KNOW would call another underhanded move by the republicans to continue ’starving the beast’ (the U.S. government that is built upon the principal of taking care of it’s people, ALL of it’s people), per the orders of the snake Grover Norquist, and his puppet masters the corporate plutocracy, insuring that the ‘blame’ go to a President whose hands are tied, via the corruption of a rigged system, and thus, insuring the ushering in of Republicorp’s nominee for the next “leader” of this great nation, well, I just had to say something. Comment on this great nation that has seemed to have lost it’s way… For who is for this VOODOO economics of Milton Friedman? Who is Milton Friedman? Google the ‘Chilean experiment’ and get back to me. One only need look back to the 1950’s, not a whole lot of ‘time’ in the grand scheme of things, to get the answers one is searching for… More to come, but, until then, I ask you to think of this and this only… was it only a few months ago that Paul Ryan (R-WI) introduced the concept of a voucher system for senior citizens on Medicare? (a voucher that would pay for perhaps two or three days in the hospital, leaving them without any more benefits). Who do you think these guys really care about? It is not your grandma or your grandpa I can assure you. Plutocrats are interested in one thing and one thing only–increasing their stranglehold on the American people’s collective necks… Have a wonderful Sunday folks and remember to not take any wooden nickles from the likes of Rupert Murdoch’s FOX NEWS, those nickles were never meant for human consumption. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
