Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  It is good to be with you on this very sunny, cool day here on Cape, as we, the residents of this little sand bar created by the Last Great Ice Age 11,500 years ago, enjoy, perhaps, the best time of the year for the Cape and Islands, fall.   You see, the Cape’s population, exponentially on the islands, increases ten fold during the summer months, and thus, getting around, enjoying the beaches, etc., is not as fun as it is right now, so come on down and visit us!  We’ll leave the Light on for YA!  Living in England during the second part of my high school career and my first year of college, I developed an intense love for the poetry of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, whose irreverent satirical humor towards the political establishment of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s Great Britain, gave way to a new weapon against hypocritical rule by the wealthy establishment and was a precursor to our best form of defense to the “witchcraft” of our friends of the p.o.h.n./tea party movement.   Keith Olberman, of MSNBC and “Countdown, with Keith Olberman”, airing every week night at 8 & 11 p.m., EST, sang a nice song for Christine O’Donnell on last night’s show.  O’Donnell is the republican senate hopeful for the great state of Delaware in the upcoming fall elections– propelled there by the out-of-state funds provided by a pot of money in California, ear marked for such radical right wing (nut) job candidates that will do and say whatever the corporate puppet masters tell them to…it was a ballad by the late, great Frank Sinatra entitled, “Witchcraft”, as it was revealed over the week end that Christine apparently had a few dates with witches in 1999 and, thus, has some questions to answer regarding turning actor and comedian John Cleese into a “newt”.  In a written statement on Monday, a  spokesman for Mr. Cleese said in London, “He got better…” Yes, it has become a spooky world of ghosts and goblins from days gone by, and much like the film, Back to the Future, we are seeing the old, real “Newts” come back onto the national stage, bringing their outdated “Contract with America”, circa 1994, back to life once again.  Nothing changes if nothing changes, and the republican party has seen enough “changes” to last a lifetime, just ask Pat Buchanan.  Take, for example, the DDNT, or “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy of the military, for, you guessed it, the past 17 years, and the general consensus to repeal it, as 80 percent of the U.S. population believes that it is outdated and irrelevant, as most in the military, whose average age is 20, do not care if one of the members of their platoon is gay or straight.  Moreover, this gets at our national security, as we have discharged thousands of soldiers in the Air Force, Marines, Army and Navy for being gay, many of whom were beloved by their fellow soldiers and were an integral part of the success of the units’ mission.  In that long list of soldiers who have been “relieved” of duty, include strategically important Arabic interpreters, naval and air force aviators and other high ranking officers who, according to all who speak of them, were critical assets in whatever mission they were currently engaged in.  This is just one of many examples that the “party of hell no”, soon to be the RTP, the “republican tea party”, will be offering “the American People” in the upcoming, possible, shift in power within the House of Representatives, for, if these revisionists take power this fall, you will see what real gridlock looks like in this country, worse than it is now, for they have threatened to “shut the federal government down” just like they did in 1994.  You will see countless nonsensical inquiries into President Obama himself, re-opening the flood gates to every crazy, bigoted, homophobic and dangerous zealot, hell bent on those “second amendment remedies”–who will attempt to force the hand of this administration into repealing the newly formed health care LAW that now outlaws insurance companies from denying coverage to children, denying lifetime “caps” on coverage, dis-allowing an insurance carrier from denying coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and making it illegal to deny claims for policy holders if they get sick.  That’s just for starters, as they steam roll the financial reform LAW, especially the newly formed consumer protection agency, designed to keep banks from ripping off customers with astonomical late fees, hidden fees and sideways fees, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, Social Security, Medicare, abolishing abortions, even those pregnancies coming as the result of rape or incest, attempting to make homosexuality “illegal”, demonizing immigrants, and destroying our environment with the ‘Halliburton Loophole’, courtesy of “Dick” Cheney circa 2005, where it is now impossible to study the effects of the 596 chemicals that are being leaked into our water supply in 37 states due to unregulated and dangerous practices of the oil and gas industry, specifically the “natural gas” industry, an industry that is literally killing many of our fellow Americans every day with their “wells” on private property that emit those 596 unregulated chemicals into the ground, and thus, the water supply, where children, families and animals live and play every day–it is akin to what Chevron did to Ecuador with oil and Shell did in Nigeria, just ask “Dick”, he’ll tell you about the death squads that were sent out to kill environmentalists who opposed the aggressive and criminal business practices of big international oil in their country–as woman and children bathed and washed clothes in the poisonous aftermath of the oil extraction.  Hell, we don’t even bother anymore to hide it, as this country turns more and more into the likeness of a third world nation.  Witchcraft indeed.  The message is clear in the fall– if you liked the policies of George W. Bush, then by all means vote republican, but remember, at least George had a college degree from Yale and did not run his household, or pay his employees with the monies that he received from campaign contributions for his upcoming election.  The newly transformed republican animal is a frightening prospect, evolving every day, although republicans would deny this, as they don’t believe in evolution, a FACT that will someday come back and bite them, and thus, will become something much different and more dangerous than what we experienced under the “leadership” of “W”.  Have a great day everybody!    PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
