Nantucket’s Blissful Sound

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:52 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the milky skied, windy, mild island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Thursday morning, the eighth day of March, 2012, coming to you at this eight a.m. hour, a wind whipped day on Cape, experiencing gusts upwards of forty miles per hour, with warming temperatures expected to hit 60 degrees by the one o’clock hour, I’m sorry did you want to talk about the weather or just chit chat?  Speaking of chit chat, all of my favorite television shows are slowly running out of things, politically that is, to talk about, although God Bless them, they are doing one heck of a job coming up with new ways to tell ‘the American People’ (credit Mitch McConnell, R-KY), at least those who vote for politicians with a little ‘r’ next to their name, they, said American electorate, are not to keen on the former Massachusetts governor Mitt, “King of the wild frontier?”, Romney, while Santorum and Gingrich, as well as Ron Paul, stay aboard the good ship lollipop, sailing off to irrelevance and destinations that fortunately will never be realized.  Looking back over the course of the past month, the republicans have managed to alienate half the women in this country, electrifying that voting block and perhaps WAKING people who normally don’t get involved with politics to get active, for it is not just women’s reproductive rights that are at stake in this epic 2012 election, pitting the .001 percent against the true AMERICAN PEOPLE, whose voice is getting smaller by the day, as it is also about the RIGHT TO VOTE, with the march for voting rights continuing on in the great state of Alabama today.  Men like the great Al Sharpton (must sea host of “Politics Nation”, week nights, six p.m., sharp, only on MSNBC), a TRUE voice for the American people, from all walks of life, joined with a chorus of other fine voices representing this nation this week in that great state of historical significance, marching in commemoration of that Bloody Sunday march from Selma to Montgomery in the year of 1965, a year that also woke the nation to the ugliness of racism, turning this nation around with the ‘Voting Rights Act’ of that most pivotal year.  These two issues–women’s rights and the 34 state rather suspect initiative to DISENFRANCHISE African-Americans, poorer elderly folks, students, and other vulnerable groups–will propel this country to re-elect our very fine President Barack Obama, the republicans worst nightmare?, moving this country out of the dark and into the LIGHT, looking to re-engineer our energy systems, create new transportation systems, bolster our infrastructure, put some TEETH in the EPA and SEC, reinstate Glass-Steagall, splitting back up the ‘investment’ banks from the retail banks, while forcing banks to infuse capital into their systems, introduce an amendment to the Constitution outlawing corporations to take over our democratic process, thus nullifying the folly of the Supreme Court’s 2010 ‘Citizens United’ decision that made faceless, profit centers called corporations actual living, breathing people, and hopefully, God willing, curb our appetite for fossil fuels, leading the world out of danger and away from the abyss that IS global warming, an abyss that can be avoided if the world acts as one to save this amazing wilderness of nature for future generations, you know, our kids and our grand-kids!!!  Call me crazy, call me irresponsible, call me madcap, just don’t call me late for dinner, or Shirley for that matter.  I have said it before and I’ll say it again, “…We are all in this together, one of these men just might save your life someday…” (credit ‘Sargent Hulka’ and the classic 1981 Harold Ramis film, “Stripes”, starring the incomparable Bill Murray, who piped in after that little speech in the ‘army’ barracks, “then again, maybe one of ‘em won’t.”).  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
