Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the super island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this hot Saturday morning, the twenty-third day of July, 2011, and as we await the mid-ninety temperatures, along with searing sunshine, as Boston hit 103 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday, tying a record for the second hottest day since they began recording weather in the latter part of the 19th century, I thought I might get a word in edge wise… New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., as well as the whole mid-section of the nation, has been caught in a Bermuda like High pressure system that has pushed the cooler air to the north of us, far to the north of us, that much farther away, baking the country in record heat that has killed dozens of people all across the nation, due mostly to heat strokes and the complications therein. Please do yourself and your neighbors, especially the elderly if you know of any, a favor, drink plenty of WATER, because most people do not know they are dehydrated until they are well past the point of no return. Global warming’s a bi#ch, huh? The day in Washington D.C. ended with a bang yesterday as President Obama led a press (high spirited) news conference after John Boehner, Speaker of the House, decided to cut off any more discussion about raising the U.S. national debt ceiling, a feat that has been accomplished 74 times since the days of President Ronald Reagan, usually without incident or issue. The political football game freshman members of the House, all republicans, are currently playing has nothing to do with football and is NOT a game. This really is a poorly executed attempt at keeping the “American People” hostage once again by the republican establishment and their handlers. In an extraordinary pattern of constant and blatant abuse of political power and numerous conflicts of interest, all up for later historical review and assessment, they (the G.O.P., keep up the good work boys~!), via a real life Stockholm Syndrome, continue their BLIND march towards plutocracy. Unbeknownst, of course, to a great majority of the “American People” (they speak so often of and with such fake, nauseating reverence). Ironically, the very corporations that placed most of these puppets in power to begin with, are seeing their plan backfire on them, as they can’t seem to put the genie back in the bottle. Rogue, bat $hit lunatics like Republican front runner for PRESIDENT, Michelle Bachmann, are poisoning the well as Moody’s, Standard and Poor’s and other ratings agencies are about to downgrade the U.S. Treasury bonds from a AAA to a AA, which means the car is about to go off the cliff–bye Thelma, bye Louise, we tried to warn you about those interest rates and the like, but you would not have any of it! Oh, and p.s., you are not the only one’s who are committing financial suicide here, WE all are, the whole of the country and the world, just at the right time too, when we have so many REAL problems at hand that need our attention. Like a five year old throwing a temper tantrum at the Stop and Shop, screaming at the top of his lungs when denied that bag of delicious Koch brothers’ “Frackers” (snacking fun for the whole family–as ya’ll try ‘n figure out which of the 596 deadly chemicals used in the fracking process of attaining ‘natural gas’ you are currently ingesting, breathing or otherwise allowing into your organic, carbon based being–oh, deadly trimesitylborane, is there nothing you can’t do?), the republican freshman want the rest of the country to drink the Kool Aid they themselves are addicted to, and who can blame them, am I right?, yes, like that recalcitrant child from hell you try and avoid at the grocery store by going down a different aisle, the freshman teavangelists are showing us all why Citizens United was such a bad U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2009, for it proved that just because you see something on television, does not mean that it is true, and the republican strategists, who work with Madison Avenue wizards, KNOW that most American people are not going to get off the couch, turn off ‘Swamp People’ or ‘Real Housewives of fill in the blank, U.S.A’, jeez, and do some real ‘time’ consuming research in order to get at the TRUTH, for do you think that the likes of a Karl Rove, one of the premier minds of the republican party, are going to offer you an avenue to discover that TRUTH? Further, knowing that Rove works for Murdoch, do you believe that one of the many News Corporation entities like FOX NEWS are going to offer you any of it either? Of course not, they are going to send you in the opposite direction of the TRUTH, confusing you as you go with their bimbo hosts and bright shiny objects, as the dull guests bring in their smoke and mirrors, designed to get you all worked up and in FEAR, effectively paralyzing you into IN action, and offering you more of the same in the way of candidates whose only difference from the previous disaster of an administration, is the clear and defined nastiness of an uncompromising, arrogant, dangerous and exclusion based origin–for if you don’t look like one of them, talk like one of them, or act like one of them, then like a duck, you probably ‘ain’t one of them, and for that you can thank your lucky stars. Amen. Have a nice day folks and, seeing that it is the week end, could you say two prayers today? One for the people of Somalia, who are caught up in a civil unrest of sorts, caught between a terrorist Al Qaeda like faction of armed guerrilla’s who are not allowing food and medicine aid into the country, hence the mass exodus to Kenya, just to the south, as a real FAMINE is taking place and aid is desperately needed for those refugees that are pouring over the borders of many East Africa countries. Should you wish to help, please visit www.savethechildren.org or care.org. Thank you. Also, keep Oslo, Norway in your heart, for they, a country I have visited for extended time periods, and for the record, is one of the most beautiful places on planet earth, with a warm and generous people, were attacked by a mad bomber and gunman, terrorizing a country that is normally off the terror hit list. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
