Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the still warm, cloudy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Friday morning, the thirteenth day of January, 2012, another quite mild one on Cape, as New England braces for much colder temperatures this upcoming weekend, with snow now blanketing the Midwest and north country, bringing some sanity back to our weather patterns for the ‘time’ being. Yes, the day at this eight o’clock hour on the eastern seaboard looks just as it did a year or so ago, looking out onto an image of the Kennedy Compound with our friend Joe Gargon, who was best friends with the late, great Senator from this magical state, Teddy Kennedy, growing up on these beautiful streets watching the big world spin by, not knowing his friend from childhood days would become ‘the Last Lion of the Senate’, a deserving title, let alone his other buddies from that same family becoming the actual President of the United States, as did Jack Kennedy, as well as the United States Attorney General, the third brother, Bobby Kennedy, men who would change this world forever, a FACT regardless of your political affiliation today. Chris Matthews, of “Hardball”, airing weeknights on MSNBC at 5 and 7 p.m., just released a great book on this extraordinary man, “Jack Kennedy, elusive hero”, a book seacapecod.net highly recommends, so pick up a copy…!! These men who guided this nation in the early 1960’s, heading off nuclear war and all, were also lucky and graced with a tremendous amount of strength and Love coming from their mates in life as well, such as Jackie Kennedy, who made the White House what it IS today, along with Eunice, Jack’s sister, who recently passed. A woman of such conviction and light (starting the Special Olympics among many other great causes), that to dare speak a lie to her, would be to double dog dare fate to snap that tongue clean off. Flash forward to the year 2012, a year far different than the image, timeless still, you see above. Lying is just a way of knowing that a candidate is alive and well, breathing, in today’s U.S. political game. The method one should employ to ’sea’ and KNOW in your heart if said candidate is lying to you, is by employing your own eyes to see that his mouth, or her mouth, is clearly moving up and down, creating some sort of a sound…therefore, by definition, giving one the answer to the riddle. Yes sir, in 1960, the year Jack Kennedy was elected to the highest office in the land, this very street looks just the same, only the era and thus, the players have changed, and what a group of ‘players’ we have 52 years later! ‘The liberal drive by media’ must have struck a nerve with the establishment of the ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’, for everyone from Rush Limbaugh to Anne Coulter, Bill O’Reilly to Joe Scarborough, are crying a foul, ‘no fair!’, ‘out of bounds!’ when it comes to BAIN CAPITAL (please Google history/financial/layoffs), yes my friends, they are shocked, shocked I say, that people in their own party would question the wisdom of the concept of ‘leverage buyouts’, wherein, a corporate raider like Bain Capital, swoops in with it’s piles of cash to ‘take over a company’ that is in trouble, fiscally, usually saying it is there to ‘help’, but, as the story usually goes, ‘the best laid plans’…22 percent of Bain Capital ‘restructuring projects’ failed, leaving thousands upon thousands without jobs. And jobs are not what Bain Capital, Mitt Romney’s legacy, or any other leverage buyout raider firm, are all about–like the picture that is worth a thousand words of Mitt and all his pals at Bain Capital with the money stuffed in the pockets, shirts, pants and mouths in some cases, “it’s all about the MONEY!” These are not job creators! These are job eliminators who will, if elected, god forbid, like Marie Antoinette of France, parlez vous a$$hole?, tell it’s starving dumbfounded citizenry who just elected him into office, god forbid, to ‘eat cake’ or ’suck it’ as they decimate anything in this nation that does not MAKE MONEY for THEIR plutocratic cause, i.e. all of our social safety nets, our environmental safeguards, our financial safeguards, hell, even our air safety! Isn’t that right Senator James, “global warming is the greatest hoax ever played on the American people”, Inhofe, (R-OK), you maniac pilot you! Ponzi schemes? Power pyramids plutocratic visions from hell? The great Pyramids of Egypt got nothin’ on these guys! God be with you Mitt, but, I am not sure what God has to do with all of this hooey, however, we do know this, Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos will be in New England tomorrow for a game that God just might be tuning into, with this reporter–as he is originally from Denver, but has adopted Boston and Cape Cod as his home–liking both teams, but may just have a little soft spot for the team with the red, white and blue uniforms. Have a great week end folks, keeping in mind as you listen to republicans spout off on the Sunday morning talk shows, going on and on about just how good companies like Bain Capital are for “America” and “our way of life”– “who’s way of life?” Governor? With follow up questions–’why are they so defensive?’, ‘what do they really have to hide?’, and ‘what is YOUR economic plan for our country Mitt?’… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
