Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great Island of Nantucket! Good, as always, to be with you on a breezy summer day, the twelfth day of August, 2010, and with the summer winds blowing from a more sane direction, i.e. “away from the things of man”, I bid you a fair a fond hello on this most beautiful day of what God’s green earth has to offer…sun, sand and surf, devoid of oil and filth, created by a corporate plutocracy inflicted with a coma of blind greed and a sick lust for power, at least for today… One of the “professional left”, my good friend and hero, Keith Olberman, of “Countdown, with Keith Olberman”, airing every week night at 8 and 10 p.m., EST, had, as his guest, the “players” and actors extraordinaire from the hit Canadian series of the 1990’s, “Kids in the Hall”, who out did themselves again, in the honesty department, as always, and lend credit, again, to the work of the creators of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”, who showed us all the way, if you lived in the United Kingdom in the late 60’s and early 70’s, as to finding the humor in stupid politicians who claim they speak for a public they would rather urinate on. Truth, as always again, tends to hurt if you are on the wrong side of it. And is that not what we are talking about here? So many lessons to be learned, for the benefit of the lesson (E), but, as always, resistance to human kindness, mistaking it for weakness itself, remains the major stumbling block. If only WE could see how we look from the eyes of these wonderful Canadians who see folly as clearly as they see the beauty in a morning sunrise somewhere in Newfoundland, Vancouver, or Montreal. Sure, they have no right to claim a voice in the INSANITY that represents this “p.o.h.n.” hyped up on steroids, from a manufactured “tea party”, that is nothing more than a brainwashing, bullying, homophobic, black/Hispanic bashing hate scheme to get back into power, but what the hell, we are all adults here, can’t they take the JOKE that they ARE? When you hit a bully on the nose, he tends to back the F$CK off and realize that you mean business, that you have as much RIGHT as he to live on this planet and voice your opinion, especially in country that was built on that very expression. I know that I am most likely talking to the choir on this one, and for that I apologize, for I know it is not what we all want to hear about on such a pretty day, but the TRUTH of the matter is this–someone IS listening, as we watch our planet burn, i.e. Russia, and get hotter by the second, all the while hearing, and many of us believing, in some jackass “Senator” from Oklahoma, named James, “she’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes”, Inhofe, who is famous for saying the words, “Global Warming is the greatest hoax ever played on the American public…” Yes, “Senator”, you may be right, as people in Pakistan clearly got, digested, and threw up your ignorant memo, while they drowned in torrential rains pouring down from “your” heavens, proving your stupidity and the rest of the clown puppets in the P.O.H.N. (the grand old party of hell no). So, to all of the fans of true “kids in the hall”, I implore you to take a good hard look at satire and realize it’s importance in our society–for if we are to tell the “emperor” that he has no clothes on, we must also ask him to get the hell out of our house, our minds and our hearts; for his place is, and always will be, one of hate, ignorance, and fear–for that is what projection is–accusing someone of something you, deep down, KNOW that YOU ARE… and as we all know, misery loves company…Stay classy Billy Bob (John Boehner, R-OH), we love you on Martha’s Vineyard! GOD’S SPEED to the Gulf, all of the SEA TURTLES, DOLPHINS, WHALES, BROWN PELICANS, the people of the Bayou and marsh lands therein…may your wishes be granted. Have a great afternoon everyone! Peace~M
