Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again sunny, breezy, frigid island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Friday morning, the 21st day of November, 2014, with the cold and sun expected to stick around this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by The Last Great Ice Age for the remainder of the week end…
How about that President Barack Obama? I was going to turn on “Morning Joe”, only on MSNBC, before sending this insignificant ‘message in a bottle’ out to the world, but I thought better of it, instead choosing meditation and pleasant sounds of birds waking and enjoying the golden silence that I sometimes forget still actually exists if you seek it. Tuning out a seemingly darkened world that is in constant conflict, never ending conflict.
Even when someone simply wants to do something GOOD, such as keeping families from being torn apart because some real ‘king’ (money) objects to the notion. The President being right about the entire issue of immigration in the United States in this 21st century America. The Republican party is right about nothing these days, but their brainwashing machine(s)–FOX “News”, Rush Limbaugh/right wing nut hate radio in general, hell all the haters on the pay roll out there in Hate-ville!– will continue being busy at work telling the “American People” that President Barack Obama is acting like an Emperor or KING and therefore, must be punished. Somehow thinking, in their warped minds, that they can hurt him any more than they already have.
The heart beat of the American people–if furnished with real facts, you know the real insight (follow the money $!), into what is going down in these here United States of America–would throw those bums out on the streets just as look at them. But they don’t. Why? Because of so many factors it would be hard to list them all here right now, save one–‘traditions’.
Traditions, like families, are hard to break, for those bonds are steeped in loyalties, blood thick, and do not respond well to reason, logic, love or science these days. So, people like Republican Senators’ Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell know–via the plutocratic Washington D.C. think tanks that tell them what to do, say and think on a daily basis–that if they follow a scientific script, saying all of the right things at the right time, probability and outcome will rule the day. Not the heart and minds of all of ‘the American people’, worry not my dear friend of history, for there is always the underhanded and quite evil ways of the Machiavellian methods applied daily by this ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’, methods and polices that will continue unabated until somebody pulls the sheets down and exposes this whole bloody affair, namely the upcoming attempted coup of OUR democracy, the one we fought WWII for, the one with that little letter ‘d’.
Plutocratic rule has NO place in a healthy, FUNCTIONING democracy and never will.
Have a great week end folks, even though NFL ‘traditions’ in Buffalo are frozen this weekend!
‘…It’s still a beautiful world, strive to be happy!’
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
