Nantucket Perfection

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:43 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  So good, as always, to be with you on this misty morning here in Osterville, after a thunderous day of rain, wind and lightening yesterday, both here and on the island of Nantucket, as you look up and see one of nature’s most beautiful gifts, the tulip, that is, perhaps, the most popular of all flowers here on the Cape and Islands, however, I could be biased… The Nantucket Film Festival began a few days ago, and although not as large as the Sundance Film Festival or Cannes, it is growing every year, as more and more films are being shot right here on this little sand bar created by the Last Great Ice Age over 11,500 years ago…  For example, Adam Sandler will be rolling into town, my town, Osterville, soon, as he is renting a house only a few steps from my own for a month, shooting the film, “I hate my Dad”, present company excluded of course, for the entire month of July right here in this little, tiny, tiny town a mere football toss from Hyannis Port, former home to our thirty fifth President of the United States, Jack Kennedy and his beautiful wife Jackie–“so come on down, we’ll leave the LIGHT on for ya!” I always wondered why Hollywood has not filmed more on Cape Cod, as you could not ask for a more picturesque set, coupled with the most extraordinary lighting in the world…it should be fun.  Going into the week end, budget talks in Washington D.C. have broken down, what a shocker, between the hard right ’slashers’ of the American dream and those who still believe that we live in a Democracy.  There seems to be no middle ground for the likes of House whip, Eric Cantor, who, along with Senator Jon Kyle, of Arizona, walked out on negotiations between the two polar opposites yesterday, with the republicans refusing to speak of “REVENUE”, i.e. tax increases, especially those who got a break in the 2000’s, while they continue to hold our seniors and the poor hostage via their attempted plan to destroy medicare and medicaid, not to mention their wish to privatize social security, while the richest among US continue to benefit from the Bush tax breaks of 2001 and 2003, that, along with the two unpaid for wars, the sweetheart deal for big pharma, and a wild west like, unregulated, greedy Wall Street (chalk full of worthless, bundled sub-prime  mortgage ’securities’, i.e. derivatives or ‘credit default swaps’), put us in this mess to begin with.  But, hey, that’s the past man, we can’t talk, in this country, about anything that did not happen five minutes ago, right gentlemen?  The republican party has no intention of creating jobs, for if they did, they would not have added the hundreds of amendments, designed to stall the many good job creation proposals in the House of Representatives, to the various jobs bills that have been presented thus far by this very LAME 112th congress, a lame duck congress by birth.  Couple that with the insane culture war that is being waged by the extreme, now, main stream, hard right–everything from a woman’s right to her own body to gay rights to rampant racism, as in radio talk show host’s like Neal Boortz–one could argue that the republican party is, indeed, sabotaging the American economy, caring NOT for “The American People”, that they lay claim to so often in their canned, horse$hit talking point speeches, but, rather, caring only for maintaining, strike that, increasing that Grand Canyon gap between the haves and the have nots.  Eventually, ‘the American people’ are going to wake up and realize that the people that HAVE stolen their wallet and vowed to ‘help them find it’ by making President Obama a one term President, are NOT their friends, for they do not believe in ‘the American Dream’ any longer, if they ever did, and are joined at the hip with the corporate masters who put them in ‘power’ to begin with.  The debt ceiling, if not raised, will cause panic in the markets all around the world, and would mark the first time in this nation’s history that WE, collectively as a nation, did not pay our bills, looking a whole lot like our friends in Greece.  However, we are clearly not Greece, as our economy is much larger and more diverse, not to mention that U.S. Treasury bills are the single most trusted investment on planet earth.  Wall Street, I assure you, will not let August 2 pass without a say in the matter, and the likes of a Eric, “you go girl”, Cantor, one of the “young guns”, will fade into the sunset with his buddies who are as transparent as a glass slipper.  On a lighter note, “Whitey” Bulger, the South Boston Irish mobster, on the run from the FBI for a decade and a half, has been apprehended by authorities in California, Santa Monica to be exact, allowing all kinds of families in this neck of the woods to breathe a sigh of relief again, especially those living in South Boston, one of the greatest neighborhoods in Boston.  I wonder what the “American People” will do to the members of congress who are hell bent on destroying this country, holding it hostage via FEAR and intimidation,  begging the question, is it not that much unlike “Whitey” Bulger’s tactics?  “Time” will tell.  Have a wonderful week end folks and, again, remember that a wooden nickle holds no value, especially those being offered by the likes of FOX NEWS… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
