East Bay

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:48 am

On the other side of Dowses Beach, which looks to the south and Nantucket Sound, is East Bay– a small inlet that acts as a harbor for many boats during the summer season.  I have a mooring out on this small body of water, where I sail in and out of, and for that I am grateful.  Hiding among the marsh grass, is a Great Blue Heron, one of the many species of birds that call East Bay their home.  We are fortunate here on Cape Cod and the Islands, as there are plenty of good folks who actually care about the environment and go to great lengths to save little things like the Common Terns and their nesting grounds on the hallowed dunes of Dowses.  No one dumps garbage into the ocean here, and their is a real sense of community when it comes to anything resembling a stewardship to the sea.  The great sadness I feel today is due to the crumbling of a moral fabric that this country was built upon, admired throughout the world, and the blindness of it’s citizens to stand up and fight for what is rightfully theirs, their children’s and their grandchildren’s.  It is like someone stealing your wallet and helping you look for it, all the while telling you that one should be more careful with one’s belongings.  With the invisible hand of a “person that does not exist” (the corporation), the politicians of the future will resemble pit bosses in a Vegas casino.  Armed with mindless followers and policies of profit, the destruction of democracy will come in the form of mind numbing commercials that lull the public to sleep, keeping them just “happy” enough to get up and go to work for sub-poverty wages and maintaining enough fear to propel the “powers that be” into a stronger position as the landlords in a “Stockholm Syndrome” that keeps the general public in chains, never being able to see the forest for the trees.  I do not enjoy writing these truths anymore than you, possibly, not wanting to hear them.  However, it is paramount that the truth be known. Paramount.  Global warming will become our biggest problem in the United States of America if something is not done about it soon.  Top scientists from all corners of the earth have concluded that we are near the “tipping point”, the point of no return, where the world, THE WORLD, will not be able to recover and balance itself out to promote LIFE.  Is that really what the far right agenda wants?  IS IT?  Of course, there could be a change of heart in this country, and I pray for that on a daily basis.  I am not ashamed to say that.  Rally around the truth, rally around people who do not have an ulterior motive.  Vote for the individuals courageous enough to tell the truth.  George Washington, our first President in this grand United States of America, said, “I cannot tell a lie”… the same cannot be said in Washington D.C., and if these men and women who were elected “by the people” had any moral fiber, they would at least admit to their shortcomings and stand on the right side of not only history, but of what makes us human BEINGS–Love of our fellow man.  Have a nice Wednesday!  Peace~ M
