Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! On a beautiful morning here in Osterville, I bid you and yours a fair adieu. The Sunday talk shows will be lighting up tommorow morning with hyperbole coming from both sides of the “party of hell no’s” mouth. It will be a delight to watch what the “pundits” have to say about the true voice of the republican party. That voice was represented by Joe Barton of Texas (a congressman who has plenty of ties to the oil industry), at a House Oversight Committee addressing Tony, “I hate to spill oil and run”, Hayward. In his embarrassing apology to Tony and bp in general, stating that he was “sorry” that the White House demanded a large sum of money be put aside for the people of the Gulf who are enduring the most devastating man made environmental disasters in modern day history, Joe spoke the truth about how he, and his caucus really feel. Who are these people? That answer has already been given. This is the new right, a group of men and women who see the poor in this country as the problem, not the large multi-national corporations that believe they can destroy what GOD created and get away with it. The reality of the situation is this, anyone who is interested in the people, sea creatures and marsh lands raise their hands, anyone who is on the side of greedy corporations (who are not really your friends) and believe that they have the right to dump millions of barrels of toxic oil into our oceans and make YOU pay for it, raise your hands… It is that simple. We all have to make a decision FOR OURSELVES about our future and who we want to be as a nation. We have to face facts about these corporations that have no one’s interest in mind except their own, along the people who give them money in the way of investments– keeping the shark swimming. Hearing more about the gestapo techniques employed by bp to keep journalists away from the beaches affected by the sea of oil coming ashore, makes me want to throw up. Is this what it is coming down to? A small group of men scurrying about to keep a lid on the truth? The men and women who died to keep this country pristine in the LIBERTY that it was born with deserve more than this. We are one nation, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and JUSTICE for ALL. What part of that don’t you understand? May GOD’S SPEED be with the men and women of the Gulf region, and all of the sea creatures and marsh lands therein… Have a great Saturday folks! Peace~ M
