Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the party cloudy, cool island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Thursday morning, the 15th day of March, 2012, a nice cool March day in New England, seasonable, temperatures in Boston expected to reach only into the forties, while only a few miles south on I-95 in the nation’s Capitol, Washington D.C., the thermometer will soar to 83 degrees Fahrenheit. Seacapecod.net crunched the numbers for ‘ya and the ‘math’ tells US that there is indeed a difference of forty degrees, proving once again what a value this obvious non-profit commentary on this humble website truly offers our kids and grand kids, who will one day look back at our reckless activity as humans living on this little blue rock that gives us ALL the miracle of LIFE every day, and say to themselves as the seas rise beyond our ability to do a damn thing about it, ‘what the hell were they thinking?’. Of course, I could be wrong, fall prey to the comic musings of Senator James, ’she’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes’, Inhofe (R-OK, and maniac pilot extraordinaire! ‘get the hell out of my way!’), who famously once stated, along with the rest of the ignorant chorus of global warming deniers, ‘global warming is the greatest hoax ever played on the ‘American people’‘, as if it just affected the red, white and blue. The astounding lack of vision on behalf of a once proud and solid brand, leaves many, like our aforementioned science fiction, or is it, example above, scratching their heads and wondering silently to themselves, ‘is this really the best we can do? Mitt Romney? A guy who has plenty of friends in the fine ‘investment bank’ Goldman Sachs, whose reputation was recently smeared via an op-ed in the New York Times by a high ranking Senior Executive, Greg Smith, who stated in the article, among many other things, “…that the atmosphere at the firm had become ‘toxic’, and that investors were mocked, abused, ‘ripped-off’ regularly, and referred to as ‘Muppets’.” I don’t know ’bout you, but I think I will put my money somewhere else, somewhere they don’t refer to me as what the members of congress have most clearly become, life-less puppets who move their lips, arms and feet to the tune of the symphony of a seemingly collective, sinister greed, a cancer that has invaded our democracy by way of Citizens United, the impalement of Glass-Steagall, the joke that is commercial banking and their 700 trillion dollars worth of over the counter derivatives, many highly toxic, with no regulations of any kind (setting up another financial crisis like ‘08), as Dodd-Frank regulatory law responding to said crisis misses the mark due to 70 percent of deadlines being missed already, i.e. regulators without any choppers. This does not even take into account the private insurance monopolies attempting to hijack the Affordable Care Law, a law that will give 30 million Americans health insurance that currently don’t have any, all while it SAVES money, the gutting of public education, public welfare programs, Planned Parenthood (to which Romney recently said he would ‘do away with’), and finally destroying the EPA, opening the flood gates for big polluters like KOCH INDUSTRIES, to continue decimating our clean water and clean air (to the point of NO RETURN!). Mark these words, as this will become the central most important resource(s) on the planet, especially water, becoming more valuable than GOLD. I hope that cheered ya’ll up, I know it did me. The choice is clear, for it comes down to your values and what your heart tells you to do. Do you truly believe a guy who used to buy companies to strip them, like a chop shop in Costa Mesa, California, chop them up so as to sell of the assets and turn a profit only once seen by God himself, has 99 percent of ‘The American People’s’ (credit Mitch McConnell, R-KY) best interests in mind? Yes, do you believe that man will have you and your families backs in the future years on this planet he is in favor of decimating for the plutocratic vision of PROFIT OVER PEOPLE? A planet that needs a REAL LEADER if it has a chance of surviving? The answer should be as clear as the water you sea below you. Have a wonderful day and keep on keepin’ on, this is not a dress rehearsal, this thing called LIFE, and it is just as much yours as is is ‘theirs’. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
