Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the now cloudy, soon to be showery, seasonally cool island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on the ‘dreaded’ (by design), Thirteenth Day of May, 2016, Friday; “Lions and tigers and bears oh my!” (credit: the “Cowardly Lion” in the classic 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz”). For if one is inclined to bow to fear/superstition/mass mental conditioning, then one is apt to be a little more apprehensive on this day, as our friends in France can attest to no?
Yes indeed, TV is the drug of this nation, and has been since the advent of the machine back in the mid to late 1950’s, when it became paramount everybody’ have one in their home, for what home would be “complete” without one? What a powerful force it truly has evolved into. Shaping minds daily with information (or lack therein; more like misdirection really…), ‘they’ (the men behind the curtain), want you to SEA, hear, feel, taste and smell. Back in 1992/1993, rock band “U2″ was making the rounds with it’s “Zoo TV” world tour. The rap song intro to those awesome concerts sums it up best…
Have a great week end ALL!
“One nation, under God, has turned into one nation under the influence of one drug…
breeding ignorance and feeding radiation, the drug of a nation, breeding ignorance and feeding radiation,
It’s satellite links the United States of unconsciousness;
apathetic, therapeutic, and extremely addictive.
The methadone metronome,
pumping out 150 channels 24 hours a day…..
You can flip through all of them,
and still there’s nothing worth watching.
There’s a reason why less than ten percent of our nation reads books daily,
while most people think Central America means Kansas.
Socialism means UN-American and apartheid is a new headache remedy…
Absorbed in it’s world, it’s so hard to find us;
it shapes our minds the most.
Maybe the Mother of our nation should remind US that we are sitting too close to the television…
The drug of a nation, breeding ignorance and feeding radiation,
on television, the drug of a nation, breeding ignorance and feeding radiation,
It’s a stomping ground for political candidates;
where bears in the woods are chased by Grecian Formula Bald Eagles.
Is mechanized political control over the masses;
co-sponsored by environmentally safe gasses…,
watch for the PBS special!
It’s a perpetuation of the two party system,
where image takes precedence over wisdom.
Where sound bite politics are served to the fast food culture,
where straight teething your mouths are more important the words that come out of it…
Race baiting is the way to get selected,
Willie Horton will not get elected;
breeding ignorance and feeding radiation,
the drug of a nation,
breeding ignorance and feeding radiation.”
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
