Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this tenth day of May, 2011, a windy, wet and wild affair out here on the old sand bar of Cape Cod, as you stare at an example of the beauty that surrounds US all here on the Cape and Islands every day, every spring, right here on a piece of land mass that was ironically created by the Last Great Ice age, and when global warming comes a knockin’, which it will, whether you believe in concrete science, or, are one of those who still believe in the tooth fairy, yes, when it does, sadly, this little sand bar, much of it anyway, will no longer be here, it will, like the glaciers and the polar bear, be gone forever, due to man’s ignorance, his stubbornness, and his never ending GREED. Rachel Maddow had a great piece on the other night, I guess it was last night’s, “TRMS”, or “The Rachel Maddow Show”, a great show, airing every week night at 9 p.m., EDT, that speaks to the TRUTH as much as seacapecod.net does, only difference being the mode in which the empirical truth is received. Principals above personalities, should always be the motto of a good news organization, although, because we are all human and have, other than my dear friend George Will, baseball expert, emotions, some, even good ones, thus, are sometimes prone to expostulate that truth with a little more than just a little passion… Yes, on her show last night, at the very tail end, burying the lead if you will, she pointed out the obvious insanity presented to US all via the corporate owned airwaves, i.e. GE>=NBC, the insanity of the BUSH, the former, I might vigorously add, administration. Choosing not to concentrate on the FACT that we have finally put an END to that horrible decade, the most horrible decade this country has had to endure in GOD knows how long, a decade that revolved 24/7 around the concepts of introducing FEAR, en masse, to the masses, as the quality of GREED began to soar ever higher heights, all on behalf of the top one tenth of the top one percent, not all, the very top of the economic food chain, a group loosely forged out of that ‘need for greed’, a vicious cycle that depends upon the TRUTH never seeing the LIGHT of day, or, if it is seen, seen by only a few. Putting a muzzle on say, a professor of history at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, whose truth is quickly snuffed out, and is, in a way, shackled to the corporate will, for if he texts or emails the word, ‘Maddow’, will be flagged by our ever growing, as Rachel puts it so well, “really, really, really BIG government”, a government that Republicorp would like to keep in the style of that era–paranoid, delusional and in many ways schizophrenic. For was it not only a year or so ago that the republicans were crying out in vain that the new affordable health care LAW would hurt medicare, a program that they recently, via the “Ryan” plan, “I told you to call me Bronco”, wanted ‘dead or alive’, more on the dead side, with vouchers of 15,000 dollars replacing a priceless program established in 1965? It was last night’s show that made me feel not so all alone and out there in the wilderness of the TRUTH, isolated in an increasingly misinformed world, as I have been speaking to this “Sunday Morning Talk Show” syndrome for well over two years now, and I am finally happy that someone else is too! The “Sunday Morning” political talk shows, where the pundits and politicians all mix in together with a moderator/interviewer, with Christiane Amanpour and David Gregory, of ABC and NBC respectively, being the best in the business, offering up the questions, sort of like a volley ball game, sometimes seemingly set ups, or ’softballs’, but, as in the case with David or Christaine, sometimes hard, real questions that are, of course, rarely answered with an honest, forthright answer, no real surprise there. Answering said questions with the nauseating spouting of endless talking points, that seem to go on for days and days, talking points that are loosely, or closely tied, as the case may be, literally, with puppet string, forever attached to their corporate masters’ will, forcing them to say, and promote everything from their very narrow and dangerous viewpoints on, as Rachel puts it, “Really, really, really, really BIG” government intrusions, such as their first three house bill proposals, first three of this 112th congress, with all of the nation’s problems, nice, that deal exclusively with a woman’s right to choose, or the lack therein, making abortions harder and harder to get, sometimes with violent outcomes, such as in the horrible assassination of Dr. Tiller, God rest his soul, in Kansas, not too long ago. Nice work barbarians, that must be the work of GOD indeed. Or their insane views on carbon dioxide emissions (greenhouse gases that induce global warming) and how that will, in the end, be our demise as a species. But putting that minor point aside for a moment, on this past “Sunday morning talk show” shows, Republicorp of America, trade mark, sent 10 people to the airwaves to pitch that idea (s) that ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ (or torture, that most official government interrogators, both former and current, would say, and have said publicly, don’t work, and should not be called “enhancement”, rather, “devolvement’, for they set the system of collecting information back on it’s heals, and incite new violence, more in the way of increasing various “revenge” motives for extremists, taking US backwards, not forwards) were critical in the capture and killing of Bin Laden…therefore, with no further adieu, here is the dishonor roll of said retirees of the FORMER Bush administration, with one current republican Senator, Indiana’s pride and joy, Dick Lugar–former mayor and presidential candidate and Mr. “9/11″ himself, Mr. Rudy Giuliani, former republican congressman, Todd Davis, Former CIA director, all of these folks employed during the BUSH era of 2000-2008, Michael Hayden, former Secretary of State, give it up for Condi, “don’t you just love her”, Rice, former director of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, former Defense Secretary Donald, “what are you lookin’ at?”, Rumsfeld, or “rummy” as ‘W” liked to call ‘em, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and last, but certainly not least, the Vice President’s daughter, ’cause no one likes nepotism as much as GE, Liz Cheney, who brings her vast experience of, what, we are still analyzing, to the table, and rounding out the really, really, really big round table of unicorns who are about to become a part of the past. Oh wait, they ARE the past! The corporate owned airwaves, in their infinite wisdom, did all of this the week Obama took out Osama, or as Rachel put it so well, “that’s the guest list to go on the Sunday morning political talk shows to talk about it. The Sunday morning talk shows are supposed to be the apex of debate, the pulsing, throbbing, heart of what’s going on in politics. So is the biggest story in American politics right now–retirees from the Bush administration and how they feel about stuff? plus Dick Lugar? Honestly, this is the roster? This is Sunday morning and all of it’s thundering seriousness? Now, among those nine former Bush administration officials and other republican politicians, there were three outliers, Senator John Kerry (D-MA), former White House communications director Anita Dunn, and current White House National Security Advisor Tom Donlin, to there were those three, but the week the Obama administration announces that bin Laden is dead, the invitees to the ‘adult’s table’, the measure of seriousness and importance in Washington, is 3-1, former BUSH administration and republican officials. Why is that?” Why indeed, Rachel, why indeed. Could it be to brain wash the few remaining Americans that are really paying attention to this stuff, and ARE in a position of intellectual authority and acumen to affect change–to wash the brain so as to elicit one to begin to scratch one’s collective head, heads that seem to have a short term memory problem as they mutter to themselves, “yeah, you know, I bet that mean old Condi is right, that torture is a good thing, and George W. Bush deserves all the credit in the world for capturing and killing Bin Laden…,” and as the puppet masters tell the airwaves who they can, and cannot have on the air that particular week, such as the monumental one we just had, we can all rest assured that the “men behind the curtain” (the wizard (s) of OZ, who, in actuality, are mere mortals and have no real lasting power at all, and that scares the living $hit out of them, for their so called ‘power’ is illusory and always fades, for it comes not from the connection to true source, but rather from the fragile, hostile, anti-social and sometimes dangerously sociopathic ego, that feeds off of other people’s suffering., (see the life and times of Adolph Hitler). You are 100 percent correct Rachel, this really IS the story and, of course, is highly UNDER reported, because either a) you work for said corporation, e.g. an employee of GE, the parent company of NBC, or b) You don’t have a vehicle to express the TRUTH, a way of ‘getting it out there’, i.e. 500,000 watts of power coming to you LIVE from seacapecod.net, just kidding, but one can dream, can one not?, or c) you are one of them and will most likely live in your ignorance until your final days expire here on planet earth. Yes, this IS the real story, behind the story and tells us volumes as to what is really going on behind the curtains aforementioned, and although highly under reported, it is kind of fun to take a step back from it all and just laugh at the absurdity of “it”, and that “it”, as in “it” from the classic novel, “A Wrinkle in Time”, is merely just a collective ego, that is not really real, but can cause damage (see Iraq War) nonetheless, moreover, is also hell bent on it’s own short term profits, coming at the great expense of our people, our resources, and our planet as a whole–all while the earth continues to warm and we lose one species after another to our insatiable appetite for MORE. Have a wonderful day folks and GOD’S SPEED to the people living on the banks of the mighty Mississippi! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
