Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! It is, as always, great to be with you on this gloomy Monday morning here in Osterville, with fog and cool temperatures ruling the day here in this little sea side village, just as it is in our nation’s political epicenter, as evidenced by the live feed from Washington D.C…although that fog has a double meaning in the country’s Capitol. The major stories emerging from the week end news cycle included TSA pat downs, complete with a Saturday Night Live skit depicting a burlesque show of willing and eager TSA employees ready to perform their “security” tasks with complete abandon, a surprise report on North Korea and it’s nuclear ambitions, reported by a credible scientist, and the war in Afghanistan, where the U.S. has now committed to being in that 4th century country until 2014, where we are spending 2 billion dollars a day on making sure that “they” don’t attack us here, while we fight them “there”….sound familiar? Meanwhile, back in the states, there was absolutely no talk to the plight of the “American People”, as we near Thanksgiving, a holiday that means so much more, this year, to REPUBLICORP and it’s members, than to the millions of Americans out of work because corporations, legitimate small businesses and billionaires will not invest in hiring any new workers because the economic models would not find it prudent to do so. We are so interested in helping the world’s people when we don’t give a damn about our own, why is that? In fact, we are putting them deeper and deeper in the cave of despair and hopelessness with every dime we spend on a defense budget that is larger than all of the other advanced countries’ defense budgets combined. ‘We’ so often speak of “spending cuts”, “tax cuts” and “making sure that President Obama is a one term President” that we, collectively, as a nation, have lost sight of what really matters–our neighbors, our families, our friends and our people as a whole, who are scared, abandoned and alone…unless you belong to John Boehner’s country club, and if you do not, you can bring your gift of sacrifice to the ’service entrance’ and leave it with the Maitre D, who will make sure it gets placed with the rest of the gifts dedicated to the alter of GREED, corruption and the lesser ‘angels’ of the human condition. There is no doubt in my mind that the Oligarchy that has arisen from 30 years of de-regulation (S), starting with Donald Regan, former Reagan Treasury Secretary and former head of Merrill Lynch, and Reagan’s real boss, could not be better summed up in a metaphor than in the GRAND CANYON itself, where the haves and have nots are on display for the whole world to see. There is a real hunger out there Mr. Speaker, although you would not know that for it does not compute with your countless nonsensical “talking points” provided to you by the “Roving” strategists out there who work for the plutocracy that meets secretly in places like Aspen, Colorado, with members of the Supreme Court in attendance, along with scoundrels such as the Koch brothers… Justices Thomas and Scalia on the guest list, and as you read your talking points to said, ad nauseum, “the American People”, an amazing justification, those same American People are getting sicker, hungrier, and more hopeless by the hour. Eat, Drink and be Merry John, for as the old saying goes, “what comes around, goes around…” Have a wonderful week folks! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
