East Bay Christmas

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 12:02 pm

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 Wednesday morning in, as evidenced by the image of East Bay here in Osterville, a real White Christmas that even Bing Crosby would be proud of.  We are expecting yet more snow this afternoon, so, if you are planning on visiting us this week end, plan accordingly…”we’ll leave the LIGHT on for ya!”  So, it has been an historic few days for the President of this fine country, President Barack Obama, as he was able to finally pass the much maligned and outdated practice the armed services once called, “don’t ask, don’t tell,” by a fairly large bi-partisan vote in the Senate.  Congratulations to those Senators who stepped forward, including Connecticut independent Joe Lieberman, who showed some real backbone…kudos.  The START treaty, the nuclear arms treaty with Russia that needs to be ratified in that same chamber SOON (for obvious reasons) is up for a vote today, which, of course, should be a no brainer, but who said anything about brains or integrity in the Senate or House, with notable exceptions for men like Bernie Sanders of Vermont and congressman Anthony Wiener of New York, who have proved there is a GOD and the holy spirit is working in them as well.  Perhaps the biggest TRAVESTY is the hold up on a 6.2 billion dollar, chump change, settlement for the first responders after the 911 attacks.  This is a bill that has already been paid for and should be the (as the republicans have used the words “911″ ad nauseum for their own political gains for a decade now, while these real MEN have been getting sicker and sicker after saving as many lives as they could that very, dark, dark day in this nation’s history) number ONE priority of said REPUBLICORP, I mean republican party.  I have never in my life seen such garbage as to what I heard out of our old pal Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) mouth when he said there should be more “studies” on this situation, after there have been exhaustive study after study of just that very point.  Moreover, he heads the committee overseeing this horrible tragedy, and, yesterday, did not even bother showing up for HIS MEETING for HIS STUDY!  Well, a very Merry Christmas to you sir, I don’t know how you sleep at night and I’m sure that Santa has a big piece of coal for you that will appear in your stocking, but wait, that is probably exactly what you want, maybe it will be a clean burning coal just for you, and you and the KOCH brothers can laugh all of the way to the bank, as you hoodwink people into believing we would really ever use that technology, it wouldn’t be “fiscally” prudent “at this juncture”…  Have a great day folks and remember to not take any wooden nickels that might appear on any of the FOX NEWS stations and their insane talk show hosts.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
