Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  I just returned from the star filled skies of Osterville’s very early morning, at 4:29 a.m. on this Monday, and as I walked up to my loft where I write every day, here in my little “Cape” home, I was filled with a real peace from what I just experienced, for there is nothing better than taking in the infinite nature of the Universe, coupled with the deafening silence that a small village in New England can offer, in a place, a region of the country, that you have and always will consider “home”.  I pray that you are safe and warm in your home, wherever that may be.  Many people are wondering this morning, however, what this circus like atmosphere of the mid-term elections may mean to them and their families, especially when it comes to the economy–the number one issue facing the “American People”, Main Street and indeed, to some degree or another, the rest of the world.  Would you like to know the what’s and why’s the economy is in the terrible shape that it is in?  Look no further than the analogy, the myth, the lore or the metaphor of Benjamin, “Bugsy”, Segal, the famous gangster who established “The Flamingo”, giving birth to the rise of ’sin city’, or Las Vegas, Nevada.  Even though he was murdered for his vision of an oasis blooming in the desert, his initial investment, with the help of some other ‘good fellas’, of 6 million dollars, by 1991, was worth over 100 billion dollars…you do the math.  If you took that same investment that multi-national conglomerates, i.e. corporations, have invested in Washington D.C. lobbyists, high priced lawyers and other ’strong men’ for the purpose of de-regulating Wall Street–from the mergers and acquisitions, to the savings and loan scandal, to the sub-prime mortgage feeding frenzy, a real predatory targeting of the poor, and finally to the quantum physics needed degree from MIT, minoring in math, creation of complicated synthetic derivatives, or ‘credit default swaps’, of which there are 670,000,000,000 of them, and presumably still are out there, along with the left over toxicity from the housing bubble that burst–you will come to see it all began 30 years ago with a republican victory in 1980 (headed by men like Meryl Lynch’s Donald Regan, going on to become Treasury Secretary), who had found their pr guy, Ronald Reagan, the actor, as their perfect pitch man.  If you took that same investment, that was most likely relatively the same as the 6 million that ‘Bugsy’ invested in what he saw as a ‘gold mine’ in ‘Vegas’, a yawn in the middle of the Mojave desert, you might see how those measly millions recently spent on politicians like McConnell, Boehner and the like, invested in their campaign advertisement costs, etc., would amount to a drop in the bucket when it compared to the literal trillions of dollars that could and will be made in the rigged stock market of 2010’s Wall Street, a real live Casino, where the wealthiest of clients’ from Goldman Sachs reap the rewards of destroying the middle class, along with the working poor in this country, a country headed for third world status in a few decades if the trend continues.  Why do you think the republicans have killed every job creating bill, small business tax relief bills, and a factory/research and development 100 percent (write off) bill that has come up in congress this year alone?  Why do they want to borrow 700 billion dollars from the Chinese or Saudis, all while saying it will help “create” jobs, when in the past, (just look at “W” ’s job creation, which was seven times less than Clinton’s, with the lower tax brackets for the top 2 percent put in place that Bush signed into law, as a temporary measure, to do just that, create jobs, when we all know that was just a smoke screen–for numbers don’t lie), it has been proven that “trickle down economics” just don’t work?  WHY?  Because this is a coup, a takeover of the United States government by a radical fringe of the republican party fueled by multi-national corporate interests, that will effectively destroy what we once called the United States of America.  Don’t believe me?  Look at the motives behind the “party of hell no”, now the “republican tea party”, where once proud and arrogant members of such a group, like our pal from ABC’s “This Week”, with Christiane Amanpour, who did an excellent job on Sunday by the way, George Will, baseball expert, who used to become uncomfortable when being equated with the “hill billy” aspect of some of the tea party members, such as witches, “angles” and “joe miller” times, yet now embraces these clowns on the far right and talks to their “energy”, proving that they are all three dollar hookers who don’t give a damn about the real big problems facing our nation–like hunger, a crumbling education system, jobs, the environment, health care, and, jobs…did I mention jobs?  The republicans are not interested in job creation (only shipping more overseas), or the “American People”– they are interested in the coup that is now about to take place on the shores of Delaware, Alaska and California.  Make no mistake about it, this “tea party” will make the tea party of Boston, that took place over 235 years ago, look like a tempest in a teapot, for the strategists and puppeteers, i.e. the corporations who are financing this fake grass roots effort, “guys” like billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch, of Koch Industries, also one of those “small businesses” like Bechtel Industries, another  multi-billion dollar “small business”, “bringing 596 chemicals to your homestead everyday”, have no interest in saving the millions of real people who live, work, raise families and have built this fine country, rather, they wish to tear it apart, limb from limb and sell it off to the highest bidder…that is why it looks like a coup, and with the added benefit of these Cretans fooling the American public into feeling sorry for them, a classic case of ‘Stockholm Syndrome’, and moreover, fighting their dirty fight to the end, keeping them locked away in a cave of ignorance and bondage,  unwittingly, the typical American will be asking themselves, years from now, what the hell happened?  Please VOTE on November 2, 2010 and please remind a friend… the little guy needs your help!   Have a wonderful day folks!    PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
