Lameless Ducks

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this Saturday morning here in Osterville, as I woke very early this morning and witnessed yet another spectacular LIGHT show in the way of the stars being out in full force on my deck at 5 a.m., as the huge nor’easter that had brought wind, rain and fog for three straight days drifted slowly out to sea and left, in it’s wake, a day of brilliance that is normally reserved for royalty…a good day to live on Cape Cod.  Well, the hypocrisy that is normally left for a slow Friday news day, if one even exists, was out again, in full force, with the news that our buddy Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell (R-KY) and still Senate minority “leader” apparently, according the the new book “authored” by George W. Bush called, “I’m the decider see?”, asked our former President if he could reduce the level of troops in Iraq prior to the 2006 elections as the war “effort” was hurting the republicans in the polls… In public, however, in that same year and same month, September, “the mouse” told reporters that the democrat (s) party was “out of line” by risking the lives of our service men and women by asking for reductions in troop levels, implying that they were “un-American” and, by doing so, cemented his hypocritical oath as a doctor of the highest order of putting one’s foot in one’s mouth…kind of like the whole thing about how much he cares about said, ad nauseum, “The American People”–whom he would just as well throw under the bus just as George “W” did to him in his new memoir, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, well, you just can’t get fooled again…”  Ah, the republican party, how transparent, how droll, how ridiculous.  You can’t be for fiscal responsibility by giving tax breaks to those who make over 250,000 dollars a year, to the tune of 700 billion dollars added to our 13.8 trillion dollar deficit, when the rest of the country is starving to death.  You can’t ask for the people to “take the pain” when you and your club house buddies are doing quite the opposite–not only avoiding the pain, but bringing it and profiting from YOUR pain.  That is the rub.  The republican machine has done a wonderful job of completely, with the help of FOX news and some very sharp strategists, hoodwinking the true American people (and thus, hijacking the country) into believing that this whole mess is the fault of some “left wing conspiracy”, (conspiracies like the now out-of-business ACORN, designed to help poor people, or giving the EPA some teeth so as to clean up our environment) made up of an “illegal” administration who is making a huge effort to actually redirect government and businesses from the deep corruption (lobbyists) that exists in Washington D.C. and Wall Street, one and the same, while they steal YOUR wallet and help YOU look for it at the same time…hypocrisy indeed.  Nothing to see here folks, just go about your day with your slave job that pays minimum wage, for soon that wage will be reduced to 5 dollars a day that may pay for a hut like the kind you see in Haiti, the Congo or Sudan.  We, the American People, do have a voice, collectively, and if we only EDUCATE our brothers and sisters in this great nation, perhaps the real problem, i.e. the system of lobbyists in Washington, would end forever and we might get something done for a change–a real change you CAN believe in.   Have a great week end everybody!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
