‘Morning Has Broken…’

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:37 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the fogged in island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you this Monday morning, the twelfth day of September, 2011, the day after the nation mourned her loses on the tenth annivesary of that fateful day, 9/11, a day that will live in infamy for many generations to come.  For on that day, we lost so many of our brothers and sisters, of all walks of life, from the top to the ‘bottom’ of our nation’s food chain, and came together as one nation, one people, one cause.  No matter the outcome of the past ten years, we should focus our attention on the FACT that WE can come together as ONE NATION and keep that higher sense of self, in all of US, forefront in our collective consciousness.  Unfortunately, most of us didn’t get the message and don’t see the full gift of what it truly means to forgive.  By forgiving others, we forgive ourselves.  This week in politics, here in the mundane world of political theater, the republican party will hold another debate with the two clear front runners, Rick, “Galileo called me and wants his analogy back”, Perry and Mitt, “Corporations are people too”, Romney going at it again, presumably about the ‘ponzi’ scheme of social security, where Rick, “coyote killer”, Perry will explain his fantastic book, “FED Up”, a classic story of a young Texas governor and how his personal relationship with ‘the Lord’ brought him to the conclusion that killing his prisoners is a ‘good idea’, and, moreover, his rather insane definition of what a ponzi scheme really IS.  Social Security, set up back in the 1930’s, was a program designed to, as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated so eloquently that many moons ago, “keep seniors out of the cold…” Senior Perry wishes to do just that, as he slashes medicaid in his state to do the same to poor children, who now, 1 in 5 have no access to health insurance of any kind–well done Rick, you are gettin’ ‘em when their coming and gettin’ ‘em when their going.  You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.  At this critical hour in our nation’s economic and educational future, not to mention climate, pollution, and the rigged system the “United States of America” has partially become, the last thing this country needs is a dim version of our forty third President of the United States, George W. Bush. What this country needs, are leaders who are more interested in the business of  GOVERNING, their F#ckcing JOB, on behalf of it’s PEOPLE, ALL of it’s people, than they are in special interests monies coming from the dreaded ‘brother’s KOCH’, who are polluting our water and air to the tune of “we’re not going to have an environment much longer if they continue with the Tar sands pipeline from Canada”, a direct quote from a very reliable source that you can take to the bank.  My advice, buy water not gold.  So there it is in a nutshell folks, the country as it really IS.  How does a people fight back against all of this naked aggression, aggression against our basic freedoms, such as the new barbaric voter ID laws that began in Charles and David Koch’s puppet Governor Scott Walker’s state of Wisconsin and has spread like a cancer across this great land of ours, yes, how do WE wake up enough people to tell them to ‘tell a friend’ as to the Machiavellian power trip the republicans are really on?  I don’t know at the moment.  I know there are other, much more powerful voices than little old seacapecod.net out there, such as Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, airing every week night at 8 and 11 p.m., EDT, and the next morning at 7, and for that, I am eternally grateful.  It would be scary to think that I was the only one who was looking at the TRUTH, the truth being as disturbing as it is sometimes.   However, there is a whole lot of HOPE out their for this world, and all of the people in it, for somehow, the world is getting much smaller and it is becoming increasingly difficult for people in power to abuse it, making money out of other people’s suffering.  The days of raging racism and homophobia are no more, and if we were to take a step back from the madness, just for moment, don’t worry, you can go back to your Blackberry soon, and look at just how far not only this nation has come in the past 237 years, but the world at large, such as Apartheid falling in South Africa alone, perhaps we can take stock of the goodness that resides in ALL of us, even our so called ‘enemies’ and by the recognition of that FACT, we can move, albeit with some vigilance against violence, forward and see a brighter tomorrow for our children and grandchildren.  May you have a great week and please keep Somalia in your thoughts and prayers, that FAMINE has not gone away.  To help, visit OXFAM, or savethechildren.org, both reputable and reliable ways to help those with nothing, truly nothing, survive yet another day.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
