LIGHT Keepers

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:14 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket!  Good to be with you on this Saturday morning, the seventh day of August, 2010, as we all woke to a cool a.m., with drier air, recently settling over this little sand bar created by the Last Great Ice age over 11,500 years ago.  I spent some time on the Vineyard these past few days, visiting Edgartown, where I once lived 23 years ago.  I worked at the Edgartown Yacht Club, a special place in my heart for one reason in particular, I had the opportunity to meet the late, great Walter Cronkite who spoke the TRUTH better than most, and articulated it more effective than anyone I have ever met in the world of journalism.  His calm demeanor and gentle, kind voice held no venom, or hate, exposing a real human side that is so rarely seen in the news media today–with some obvious exceptions on MSNBC…to whom I will forever be in their debt.  The “Tea Party” movement is now an integral part of the p.o.h.n. and is on the hot seat of that TRUTH, and the politicians that support them must now fess up to who they really are and what issues they truly stand for, i.e., repealing the new health care LAW, privatization of social security, getting rid of medicare and invoking “second amendment remedies” if they don’t get their way.  This doesn’t even get into the fact that they wish to repeal the newly (albeit watered down) signed LAW of financial reform for Wall Street, the dismantling of the Environmental Protection Agency and the abolition of the Department of Education…opting for the fiction offered by the rewriting of American History via the Texas Board of “Education”…  This all on the backdrop of extending the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 whose price tag for this country would be bigger than the 850 billion stimulus package offered by Bush himself, ballooning to over 4.4 Trillion dollars in the next ten years.  This, of course, brings about the fundamental question of who the p.o.h.n. really IS and who they work FOR. The top 2 percent in this country of ours, a country that has seen the worst job growth in it’s history, with millions of people out of work, people who have masters degrees, and wish to simply find their way out of a very deep, dark hole, are the very Americans that this “grand old party of hell no” are ultimately hurting, and that 2 percent ARE the people that they are working for.  Since when is the definition of “the American People” two percent of the general population?  I put it to you Greg, “IS this what the American people want, or is it what the top 2 percent want?”  It is the height of arrogance to have “men” like Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell (R-KY), and leader of the Senate minority, get up on his soap box and talk to what “the American people” want, as he receives his kick backs from corporations who could not care less about “the American People…”, only what they can sell them.  He speaks of “balance”, balance?  You’re far right wing (nut) policies, that reward the few and leave the “American People” under a bus to die of starvation is not “balance”, it is hypocritical horses#$t and you know it.  The central question remains, “do you want to go backwards to the philosophy of plutocracy, or do you want to go forward in this next election cycle,” continue on with social progress and responsibility or move into a state of slavery where only a handful of people reap the rewards of living in such a rich nation such as the United States of America?  Look to the Sunday talk shows, brought to you by Toyota, and ask yourself a simple question, “who is telling the truth and who is selling you snake oil.”  GOD’S SPEED to the GULF, all of the people of the Bayou, the SEA TURTLES, DOLPHINS, WHALES, BROWN PELICANS, SEA BASS and marsh lands therein…may this nightmare by over soon. Have a wonderful week end folks.  Peace~M
