Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy island of Nantucket~! Great to be with you on this Monday morning, the thirteenth day of June, 2011, a cool one here on Cape, as we enjoyed a week end of below “normal” temperatures with plenty of soaking rain storms, lightening and thunder included at no extra charge. The news cycle, unfortunately, has been focusing on all of the wrong things, comparing apples to oranges, when we should be concentrating all of our efforts on job creation in this country, a country that has seen it’s fair share of corporate hijacking over the course of the past three decades. The republican agenda is a lockstep one, one voice, one mandate. The overall reach of private “market” forces, devoid of a fair playing field, has put the common “American people” in a difficult position, one they have never experienced before, save generationally, as their grandparent’s, or their great grand parents, faced similar conditions during the Great Depression, a time in this nation where 25 percent of the country was out of a job. Today, the real number of people out of work here in the U.S. is 18 percent, those who have either lost their job, given up on finding a job in their field, or are working part time, sometimes two or three jobs at once, just in order to make ends meet. This, all while corporations are enjoying record profits, such as the oil and gas industry, a nasty group of thieves if I ever did see one, who raked in, collectively, over a trillion dollars in profits this past decade alone– all while paying NOTHING in taxes, as they enjoy being housed in the United States and know their legislation, they put in place via the puppets they hired in D.C., propels their never ending rape and pillage our land at will. This is only one industry, out of many, insurance, coal, banking, Wall Street and nuclear for example, represent other interests who, along with their oil and gas pals like the KOCH brothers (go frack yourself David and Charles!) continue their march towards the ultimate goal of a PLUTOCRACY in the good ‘ole USA–or rule by the wealthy, destroying the concept of “one man equals one vote” forever. These wealthy individuals, not all, but many, also have some interesting viewpoints on social issues, such as a woman’s right to her own body, and when you combine that with the questionable INTENTIONS of a religion that is ironically based on the words of a man who believed we should, above all, care FOR the poor, it begs the question, “who are these guys anyway?” And what have they done with Abraham Lincoln’s republican party? Questions and riddles in the dark, for your philosophical and dining pleasure this late Spring morning here in Osterville…may you have a wonderful week ahead and please, continue to keep the folks in Japan in your prayers, for we are all ONE in the end and to quote our friend Jesus, “the greatest LOVE you can offer another human being is treating him, or her, as if they were you.” PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
