Nantucket’s grey & white

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 6:48 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the still star lit and mild island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this early Tuesday morning, the 7th day of October, 2014, expecting some rain today with temperatures seasonal–as the moon slowly sets in the West…

Not much has changed in this ‘new thirty year the war on terror?’, upgraded to HD now with a chic ‘new look’, lots of images thrown out of big aircraft carriers and such.  The threat of savage terror brought upon innocence coupled with the grim color of black on a flag, designed to bring fear to it’s potential victims, hidden behind masks (like all cowards do, save the Lone Ranger), brings not only ISIL more prominence, but boosts those all important TV ratings for the big corporate owned airwaves as well.  Being able to sell more Viagra and the like…

American forces will continue secret bombing campaigns (one could ponder) forever now, thanks to that September 14, 2001–the “AUMF”, which was essentially a blank check given by Congress, an “authorization to use military force” against malicious terror groups, very broadly written out after the 9/11 bombings in New York. Again, giving the Executive authorization to go after anything related to Al Qaeda or their affiliates.  Anywhere, now, in the world it seems (six hot spots globally).  Although we might be thankful our fine President Barack Obama has been wise and prudent thus far, refusing to allow boots on the ground, at least en masse. But even with all the fire power on display, that fear may just become old news (like Yemen?) and has fallen on deaf ears (by the masses) here in the United States.  Like a flea, the corporate owned networks are jumping on a new FEAR threat, the Ebola virus, with it’s first case in the U.S. striking the great state of Texas.

Fear sells better than sex.

Besides the heroic work of Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins (taking it upon himself to find a home to the people whom were in contact with Mr. Duncan, this first U.S. Ebola case, many siting, ‘no room at the inn’ bit in loo of all the media saturation, so much so that we all need a shower after watching the evening news, as well as an air sickness bag), it seems we don’t care all that much for people who don’t have any money when it comes containing this deadly disease.  Armed with high tech cleaning trucks and a hose (equipment one might see at a Wyoming rodeo clean up in back of the bull pen) in a low rent area outside Dallas, the boys down at “Hazmat-r-us” and a fairly new (1979) state-of-the -art utility van, dawning new rims and custom paint job, showed those guys with the fancy plane a thing or two by golly!  Who needs all that high tech bubble boy stuff when Duct tape (like Hamburger Helper) does just fine by itself–what do you think Clark?   “Oh, you’re the gourmet around here Ed…” (credit the classic film, circa 1983, “National Lampoon’s Vacation”, starring Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid…Directed by the late, great Harold Ramis).  Going on to say, “Real tomato ketchup Eddie?”

“Nothin’ but the best…”.

As the nation heats up these next 28 days before the very important 2014 U.S. Midterm elections, with the fate of the United States Senate hanging in the balance, it is fair, I believe, to point out the reality of the situation.  The Republican party has been hijacked by special interests groups who work for very wealthy industrialists who do NOT have your best interests (the “American People”) in mind.

How can I make such an outlandish statement?  My friends in Greenwich, Connecticut might ask?

Simple.  It is the TRUTH and the more people real eyes our democracy, with that little letter ‘d‘, is in jeopardy, as well as the fate of the planet, the better off we all will be.  For in the end, at ‘the end of the day’ as the kids on cable news like to say, kids from 2 to 92 by the way, we are all in this together.  We may as well make it a good journey, yes?

Yes, at the conclusion of our broadcast this very early morning, on this very old sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age, including that little “far away island” (literal Indian translation of the word Nantucket) way out in the Atlantic Ocean, the grey and white clap board lined rock famously known round the world as the destination of Nantucket–we must ALL come together and work for common solutions.  For our collective good and the security and wholeness of future generations.  This world and her natural resources should not to be plundered by a few powerful interests for their own personal gains. The world’s fate should not hang in the balance of someone’s stock portfolio!

WE should not knowingly elect people whose goal it is to do the complete opposite of that sentiment.  Doing the will of not some divine creator, but a will of themselves, putting the world’s temperature at a critical mass–a threat level that supersedes the threat levels of Bush’s orange, yellow and red.  An era that has seen it’s ‘better’ day.

Have a great week ahead folks and remember that it is still a beautiful world–strive to be happy. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
