MV salutes you, Mr. President!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 4:23 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the windy, sunny, temperate and gorgeous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this blustery day on Cape, Hyannis/Hyannis Port to be specific and I hope you are all enjoying your summer wherever this transmission may be reaching you and yours.  Today, perhaps about right now, the 10th day of August, 2013, a Saturday, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, blessed these shores with his choice of picking the stellar island of MV, or Martha’s Vineyard, for his much deserved vacation, a place steeped in history roughly seven miles due south off of the southern coast of Massachusetts.  His choice of Chilmark, once again, is a great thought; home to the great musicians Carly Simon and James Taylor who played at his second inaugural.   Musicians who found the magic here many moons ago.  Here’s hoping he will visit the equally historic town of Edgartown, on the east side of the island, as well.  Although a bit congested in the summer, it is still famous for the film, circa 1975, “Jaws”, starring Richard Dreyfuss, Roy Scheider and Robert Shaw, directed by Steven Spielberg. With all of the Great White Shark sightings of late, it may be fodder for the upcoming battles in Congress soon.  Sharks come in all forms, none so blatant (and this is not a ‘dis’ on real, natural wonders of the sea, i.e. sharks everywhere), yes, none come so blatant as the continued attacks coming from the down hill spiral republican party, who cannot seem to get out of their own way in regard to, in a word, ANYTHING!  They just do not seem to understand the concept of their own religion of choice, “Christianity”, whose main doctrine is the GOLDEN RULE“treat others as you would like to be treated”… Case in point, “Obamacare”, as many call it today, or, what it really is, “the Affordable Care Act” turned into law during Mr. Obama’s first term as President.  A landmark case that our Teddy Kennedy fought for his whole career–namely that health care is a basic human RIGHT!   The republican extremists are threatening another government shutdown if they don’t get their way on repealing this LAW that was once hailed by fellow republicans Bob Dole and the folks down at the Heritage Foundation.  Stockholm Syndrome 2.0 indeed, a syndrome where the captives, i.e. the American People, are told lies and manipulated into feeling sorry for their captors.  The true definition of that phrase.  For the meanwhile on this beautiful summer afternoon, I pray the President and his wife, Michelle and two wonderful daughters enjoy this magical little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age…picking up lots of seashells, watching the Osprey and seagulls fly overhead–the whales, dolphins and seals that frolic in that deep blue sea, only to know that they’re words never, ever mislead… Have a great day and week end folks and keep it tuned to seacapecod.net for all that is natural and TRUE to US ALL!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
