Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, warm island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning on the east coast, the 16th day of April, 2012, Cotuit to be precise, ‘where the ocean meets the wood’, an off the beaten track old Cape town (filthy, liberal, hippy, tree huggin’ hangout truth be told), where the ‘old world shadows (still) hang heavy in the air’ (credit Don Henley and the great rock band, ‘The Eagles’). It will be a hot one in the old town of Boston today, as well as New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., temperatures soaring close to ninety degrees in the middle of April, while Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin get ready to deal with more severe weather in the form of deadly tornadoes that have ravaged much of the middle and southern portions of the United States in this young year of 2012 already, with yesterday’s midnight Oklahoma twister taking five lives–yet another real life example of just what global warming looks, sounds and feels like. This “new normal” (for lack of a better cliche), whatever you position on the subject of this global weather phenomenon gone wild might be, is changing all of our lives whether WE acknowledge ‘it’ or whether we stick our heads in the proverbial sands, like our pal the Ostrich, who does this when some perceived danger is present or approaching, hoping ‘it’ will just go away and prove the flightless bird right all along. Hell, it worked with ‘Reaganomics’ did it not? Speaking of the man who would not be elected into congress today (at least as a republican), let alone vaulting into the Presidency of the United States of America, the core element of this contentious upcoming election will be not whether Ann Romney ever ‘worked a day in her life’, but whether or not the American People (not late night comic sensation Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) FOX talking points definition of said ‘the American People’, no, the bulk of this nation, the 99 percent), wake up in time to see who will take US forward and who will most assuredly take US back, back well before Ronald Reagan ever thought about becoming the corporate right’s poster child. “A Fair Shake” is what the American people deserve, not a hand out, certainly not a bailout, as those we know by now are only awarded to the speculators, insurance carriers and Wall Street ‘banks’ (casinos), being ‘too big to fail’ and all, for if they did, all hell would break loose right? Right? That’s what they tell US anyhow… Bailing out GM was far different, for GM actually MAKES things, as opposed to Wall Street that only drives up prices on all kinds of commodities, trading them with cheap money from the FED, banking HUGE profits, while the rest of America starves, paying executive giant bonuses, keeping the .001 percent in Lear Jets and La Jolla spreads, who can’t go wrong ’cause the puppets they got working for ‘em in Washington can’t go to the bathroom without their permission. Isn’t that right Grover? That is the central challenge the White House faces come the fall, “for if the point spread doesn’t get ‘em (the Karl Roves of the world are saying to themselves, regarding the new voter suppression laws, designed by the ghost of Machiavelli himself to disenfranchise African-Americans, the poor elderly, students and other minorities), the six large (estimated 600 million dollars to be spent on the republican bid for the Executive, thanks Citizens United!) might just do the trick.” Don’t be fooled by people who want to make more money on the backs of hard working Americans. It is really THAT SIMPLE. Have a nice day folks, steering clear of wooden nickles bantered about by FOX & FRIENDS, ‘they aren’t foxes and they are not, I repeat, NOT your friends.’ PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
