Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cloudy, extremely humid, possibly thunderous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this 25th day of August, 2015, coming to you LIVE on a foggy Tuesday morning here on the historic Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront(s). I pray you and yours are taking in these last days of summer for yet another year; wherever that summer was summered upon… Judging from the traffic on Pleasant Street–leading people to either the Steamship Authority or Hyline–cars, trucks, countless other vehicles, bikes and pedestrians are thinning from the height of tourist season in early July. Giant ferries taking one back and forth to those magical islands so popular now a days with the jet set type, yes, as one takes stock of the numbers, one is left with the sad, or happy, conclusion that yet another summer season has passed US by, the inevitable conclusion being that snow is just around the corner. So embrace those summer bike rides that keeps one warm during those cold, snowy days of January.
“Black Monday” (China), sent stocks down in the U.S. over 1000 points yesterday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping 586 by the ‘end of the day’. Of course, this was the only ‘news’ yesterday, everyone ‘being in the same boat’ with their collective 401(k)’s and all. The only problem with that ’scenario’ is that the big boys are ten steps ahead of that herd, thus, the only individuals being fleeced in this Global slowdown of blind consumerism will be the mom and pop investor, who will be called upon once again to bail out banks that are deemed ‘too big to fail’.
When a leader–a real leader–like Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders continues to attract giant crowds all across this nation with his simple, humble message chalk full of healthy, common sense ‘Of, By and For the People‘ realism, with ‘ner an acknowledgement from the corporate multinational media conglomerates (ever affirming his ‘un-electability’), one must now be able to SEA what the heck WE have been talking about all this ‘time’! The corporate media, owned by plutocrats, does not want him to be heard! Just like Dr. Seuss’ brave (ironically) elephant “Horton” and his “Who’s…”, the Kangaroo down under wants to silence the messenger! Indeed, in this mad rush for the nomination for the chance to become this nation’s 45th president, all logic, reason and sanity has gone out the window.
Reality has been hijacked by lunacy. Madness has replaced reason. Illusion has taken stage. The Emperor has no clothes; can we SEA? There is no other way to look at this fiasco. When you have an entertainer extraordinaire, a reality TV genius, a real estate mogul billionaire, a Donald, “you people are beautiful, we’re all going back to my place, this is ridiculous”, Trump leading this most definitely ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’ into ground like a five year old having the time of his life, it is clear that no one really has a clue what, or who is really running this circus. Save the military industrial complex. They’ve got no problems.
The ‘reality’ is this: the big world banks will continue to keep the masses in economic slavery for the foreseeable future, via a rigged, corrupt monetary-market system that only rewards those at the top. A pyramid scheme if you will. Big oil and gas will continue to rape and pillage the earth, her people, and all of the precious animals and plants for their own bloody profit. Big pharmaceutical multinationals will keep people sick instead of curing them; no money in prevention and health, reaping giant unholy profits! Big ‘farmers’ like Monsanto will continue destroying our soil and water tables, patenting life via our seeds with the “Roundup Ready” poison now 80 percent of what Americans eat day in and day out; genetically modify that GMO! In fact, all of the rules (”laws”), of yesteryear regarding this ‘country’ have been bought and sold, scrubbed, sterilized and disinfected! But know this: the LIGHT of the eternal sunshine of the spirit is a disinfectant that carries no ’side effects’, lo, it’s only purpose is to bring those once in the dark back into that ever shining LIGHT. A light that shines in every living creature on this most beautiful blue planet worth saving.
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
