Heron, Great Blue

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:33 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  Good Monday morning to you and yours, on this soggy, humid start to the day here in Osterville, the eighth day of August, 2011, a morning where the U.S. awaits it’s fate in the domestic and international markets as futures in the Dow Jones Industrial were marked down significantly after the ratings agency of Standard and Poor’s downgraded U.S. Treasury bonds from the AAA rating it has always maintained, to a AA plus, on par with Belgium, with most in the KNOW expecting significant turbulence today on Wall Street…  The Dow was down by over 235 points in those futures, with Asian markets down significantly as well, foreshadowing more economic woes ahead for individuals, as well as small businesses, who are swimming upstream in a market that is still held hostage by the radical right in this country, held by hostage takers called the ‘tea party’, a manufactured group of individuals who act upon talking points handed down from ‘on high’ by their corporate overlord puppet masters, a FACT no one is really willing to go on record defending or disputing, nor is any political ‘leader’ willing to explain to average American citizen the REAL reason there are no jobs in this country–a strategy that was put in place by the rising oligarchy or plutocracy that cares not for the 98 percent of Americans who make under 250,000 dollars a year, rather, cares only about short term PROFITS, that do not mix well with our social safety nets, safety nets that were put in place by leaders much greater than they, to protect OUR people from the likes of the ‘brother’s KOCH’, or Halliburton, who will continue to poison our lakes, streams, estuaries and rivers, with their corrupt cocktail of 596 deadly chemicals used in the ‘fracking process’ of attaining ‘natural gas’–not to mention our Gulfs, our bays and our most pristine wildlife refuges, such as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, that are under constant threat by big oil to ‘drill, baby drill’, an exercise that does not ‘help out the American consumer’, rather, helps companies like the monster corporation Exxon-Mobile to gain access to cheap oil so as to sell out on the open market, as it continues raking in record profit at the expense of US all.  The ‘American People’ have been lied to for so long by media outlets, all corporate owned for the most part, yes, LIED to for so long, they have no clue as to what the real TRUTH is anymore, thus, have no platform upon which to base their judgement on.  This systematic dismantling of our democratic DNA has left this country without leaders who truly represent the PEOPLE’S best interest, the whole point to our DEMOCRACY, opting for loyalty to special interests that come in the form of lobbyists in our nation’s capitol, busy at work right now in D.C., even as the rest of congress is in on a month long break from duty.  The markets will tell the tale in the end, and we will see how big business reigns supreme over common sense, as more and more Americans go to bed hungry, asking themselves how they can BUY a job.   On yet another very serious note, Cape Cod, Barnstable in particular, lost a hero over the week end, as a Chinook helicopter carrying 30 American soldiers, including twenty-two elite soldiers, went down in Afghanistan, most coming from the great J.S.O.C.’s Navy Seal team Six, the same group of special op soldiers who took out Osama Bin Laden.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who were affected by this tragedy, a tragedy that should never have happened as we all try and make sense of why we are in Afghanistan to begin with…asking the question, a very legitimate question, “what is our end game?”….. May you have a wonderful week ahead, and please, should you wish, please send a prayer out to those suffering the greatest humanitarian crisis in modern day Africa, as millions of refugees from the country of Somalia flee to Kenya, searching for food and water in the one of the worst droughts to ever strike that region of the world.  Mostly woman and children are dying, at least 3.5 million of them, who are not only faced with the drought and famine itself, but also the armed guerrillas that are blocking AID from reaching it’s goal.  Two organizations are doing an outstanding job, however, of getting food in where it is most needed, savethechildren.org and care.org, so should you choose to donate to either of these worthy causes, you too, could make a HUGE difference in the life of someone who is trying to survive another day.  Thank you. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
