Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! What a morning here in Osterville, with a combination at Dowses Beach of a spectacular sunrise and then, looking north from the Jetty onto East Bay, I spotted 9 Swans flying in the most awesome spectacle of nature I have ever witnessed. There is nothing like the sight of swans flying. Their wing spans are at least five feet and their long necks make them appear as if they are from another world altogether…screaming peace in silence, and bringing one to another place in “time”, where one may realize that “time” is but an illusion and all we really have is the HERE and NOW… As I have said before, and I will say it again, come on down and visit us! We will leave the LIGHT on for you! We are all quite aware of what is going on now in regard to the “accident” aboard the Deep Water Horizon where 11 men lost their lives, the subsequent loss of life via “the most innocent victims” and the loss of a “way of life” for so many who live, fish and love in the Gulf region. As Bp utilizes their lawyers to pay out “dividends” to stockholders before the company goes belly up, we all know that the federal government must step in and TAKE THE MONEY from bp before there is none left to clean up this massive environmental act of criminality that cannot be measured in the written or spoken word–proving once again that words are indeed, a befuddled form of communication. I have been very impressed with Chris Mathews lately, however, the host of the very good political show called, “Hardball, with Chris Mathews,” airing on MSNBC at 5 p.m. daily. The reason I say this is simple, he is showing some emotion on the “tv”, encouraging those who may not feel they can get angry at this horrible situation in the Gulf. Bringing up the fact that every restaurant, hotel, fisherman, property owner, lovers of animals, etc., will never be repaid fully, or, as Tony, “how did you like that last commercial I shot, do you think they bought it?”, Hayward (CEO, bp), whose hurt feelings have prompted him to say he would, “cut a deal”, delaying the payments of dividends to stockholders if, “the media, the Executive and the people in general would just tone down the anger and heat regarding the spill and just be nice…” ARE YOU SH#$TING ME? Here is a guy who comes from the upper classes of England, a place I am very familiar with (having attended high school and my first year of college in that beautiful country), and could not care less about the plight of the poor folks who live on the Gulf coast in the United States of America. The large oil companies look upon that region of the country as a work place, a large mine of sorts, to plunder and rape at will. They care nothing for the dead dolphins, pelicans, sea turtles, fish of all kinds, precious marsh lands (the building blocks of our entire eco-system) and quite frankly, the United States of America in general. The “powers that be”, the infant plutocracy that was being developed during the Cheney/Bush administration of 2000-2008, (who held secret meetings with bp in the White House, giving these multi-national corporations the keys to the hen house) were busy putting together a design to make billions upon billions, in various industries, while the average wage for the average American remained stagnant– with manufacturing and anything of value being stifled by the rule of Wall Street and the famous motto, modus operandi, method of operation, remaining–PROFIT OVER PEOPLE! The average American is now waking up to this fact, albeit in a perverted way, as most are poisoned by the fabrications on “fair and balanced” networks of brainwashing such as FOX NEWS–hence, the “tea party movement”. Progressive, or as I like to put it, common sense philosophy has become a dirty word to many Americans for this reason alone–brainwashing the ignorant, using fear and hate, or more to the point, “the unknown.” Case in point, Sharron Angle, an ironic name if I have ever heard one, for her “angle” is precisely what I just described–fear, hate and ignorance, along with some good old fashioned sloth. In the great state of Nevada, Ms. “Angle” will challenge Harry Reid, from the silver mining town of “Searchlight” for his Senate seat and she will use every arrow of “bad idea jeans” in her quiver to unseat him. Her choice of the John Birch Society should give us pause, for this movement represents regression at its worst. Back from the dead and formed in 1958, the John Birch society’s “ideas” were too far out for even the most conservative of republicans, thus, the society fell away and seemed to vanish along with any doubt about the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But, leave it to these crazy people on the far right extreme to dig up the grave, dust Mr. Birch off and bring his message to the frontal lobe of American Society once again. Let’s take a look at some of Ms. “Angles” positions and you may see the trend that is happening RIGHT NOW in the “state of fragility” our nation has become. A little background on the “Birchers” and just how insane they really are, the group truly believed that one of our greatest Presidents, Dwight D. Eisenhower, “Ike”, was a communist plant for the former Soviet Union. The paranoia went even further, attacking innocent “fluoride” and the fluoridation of water, linked, somehow, to Communism and the plot to turn the United States of America into a pawn of the Kremlin. At a recent CPAC convention, the John Birch society was out in full force, bringing back the paranoia in a big way, explaining the fluoridation is a “prerequisite to putting birth control in the water”…this, like Anne Elke’s (Monty Python) theory on the Brontosaurus, is just the tip of the iceberg, for like Anne, “Angle” has a “theory number two”, which she will gladly share with you, if you’ve got the time… “Angle” has publicly stated her opposition to the U.N., treaties of any kind, and fraudulent “theories” like Global Warming (Ms. Anne Elke concurs). When asked about oil drilling in light of the bp disaster, she exclaimed, “we should de-regulate the industry even more,” then added that she would do away with the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, the Internal Revenue Service, Social Security, Medicare and welfare in general. This is a fine example of what we should now expect to see in the way of “candidates” for “public” office in the 2010 elections in the Fall. With Citizens United (Justice Roberts “leadership move” allowing corporations to give unlimited monies to candidates of their choice) beginning to show what a landmark case it really was, is and will be, the corporations are falling all over themselves as they try to get in on the action. Now that corporations, multinational corporations, can buy elections, and thus, policy, the only weapon against this tyranny is the Truth. Calling these baby monsters out on who and what they are–leaving the final vote to the American public. This will not be easy, as we all know that the media is owned by the corporations, and thus, the truth will have a more difficult time getting to the average American citizen who does not realize the power he or she has in this “Land of the Free”. It is ironic that the John Birch Society is based on the defense and maintenance of the Constitution of the United States– well, parts of it anyway. I wonder what Al Walter of the World Wildlife Fund would have to say about Ms. “Angle” and the LIES that become her. He is the only person, to date, to actually get in the oil stained Gulf of Mexico (yesterday), describing the scene as “giant globs of death…” His thoughtful prose of what these poor animals of God are going through, breaks the heart in two and leaves us with the hollow words emanating from the mouths of “news anchors” from the likes of corporate owned networks such as CBS, FOX, ABC, and even NBC’s flagship station–all corporate stooges who shovel the horsesh@#t into America’s mouth every night. Cover that you windbag machines of hot air, wedged in between the Spam and erectile dysfunction commercials…God Help us! Much more importantly, may GODS SPEED reach the people, plants and sea creatures therein…for they are truly innocent victims of mankind’s eternal folly– when following a vicious collective corporate egoic mindset… Have a good week end everybody! Peace~ M
