Great Blue Heron

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:09 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  So good to be with you on this rainy Thursday morning here in Osterville, the fourteenth day of July, 2011, as you look up at one of our most stunning birds here on Cape and the Islands, the Great Blue Heron, whose wing span reaches over 6-8 feet when flying above this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age, looking more like a teradactyl than a big, blue mysterious bird that adorns our shores and, perhaps, awakens US all to what is really important in this LIFE we all share…I wonder if Washington D.C. ever received that message?  Eric, ‘you go girl’, Cantor, the U.S. House of Representative’s majority whip obviously has not, as he now seems to have claimed the leadership position in that embattled people’s House, working for the “teavangelists”, a combination of the craziest elements of the tea party and the radical evangelical movement, hell bent on destroying the real definition of this immigrant nation, and all of it’s forward movements, EVOLUTION (if you will, and I know you won’t), at any cost, as the debt ceiling deadline looms in the far off distance, a distance that is closing ground even as I write these words, with the President of the United States getting ready at this 7 a.m. hour to do battle once again with a group of people whose main mission is to make him a one term President.  “Would you like juice with your pancakes this morning sir, or would you just prefer an aspirin?”  We here at seacapecod.net offer our support to the strategy employed, as does the Wall Street Journal, who wrote this yesterday regarding this epic battle of wills, and I quote, “…the President’s strategy all along:  Take the debt limit talks behind closed doors, make major spending cuts seem possible in the early days, but then hammer Republicans publicly as the deadline nears for refusing to raise taxes on business and ‘the rich’.”  Rupert Murdoch’s paper goes on to say, “The hotter precincts of the blogosphere were calling this a sell out yesterday, though they might want to think before they shout.  The debt ceiling is going to be increased one way or another, and the only question has been what if anything the Republicans could get in return.  If Mr. Obama insists on a tax increase, and Republicans won’t vote for one, then what’s the alternative to Mr. McConnell’s maneuver?  And finally, a LOVE note from big Wall Street, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a letter from over 400 American CEO’s, you know, MONEY and real power, to House Republican freshman:  “The polls that now find that voters oppose a debt ceiling increase will turn on a dime when Americans start learning that they won’t get Social Security checks.”  Stop with the talking points Mr. Cantor, no one, especially your puppet masters, are listening and, moreover, are growing tired of this embarrassingly corrupt transparency.  You are here to forth banned from using the term, “American People”, in a sentence, a paragraph or a picture you drew with your new crayon set (as well as banned from the all white, Christian club house for a while, just ’till things blow over), or refer to them in any way, you sir, have lost that privilege, for you never did speak for the AMERICAN PEOPLE, as you blocked job bill after job bill in this 112th congressional session, poisoning the water time and time again with 596 chemically tainted (Koch Industries) corporate sponsored and handed down talking points that just as well might have come from a man who hacks into murder victims phone lines, terrorist victims on both sides of the Atlantic, not to mention Members of Parliament in the U.K. (while police took in bribes, nice) and, you would know better than I, perhaps even your phone, for I can think of no other reason for this shameful display of brinkmanship, when so much is at stake for the U.S. economy, it’s people’s futures, and the world markets at large–you, Eric Cantor, are way out of your league and are about to be corrected, but GOOD!  Have a pleasant day folks and may GOD continue to bless this world, especially those on the Somalian/Kenyan border, for that is where His help is most assuredly needed the MOST. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
