Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this very early morning, the day after, if you will, of the exhaustive mid-term elections of 2010. The republicans pulled out 60 victories in the House of Representatives, taking control of one piece of the puzzle in our Legislative branch of government, while the democrats held on to their majority in the Senate, with a huge sigh of relief being felt across the whole country, from the democrats standpoint, as Harry Reid won his Senate fight to the death with Sharron, “don’t let the door hit you on the #$% on your way out,” “Angle”, whom I’m sure we can all say we will miss and wish the best of luck in her new career as a makeup salesgirl with the stylish Mary Kay Cosmetic Company–you go girl! Barbara Boxer won in California, thank GOD, as well as Jerry Brown, proving that 150 million dollars cannot necessarily BUY an election (but it can deport a lot of Mexicans), score a point for “one person equals one vote” and permission to take a mental pause and reflect on the wisdom of the Citizens United case that prompted the out pouring of over 3 billion dollars into this election cycle alone. The races that are still too close to call are in Colorado, where Buck and Bennett are literally both at 50 percent of the vote at this hour, and Alaska, where the write-in candidate, Lisa Murkowski, holds a 40 percent to 35 percent lead over “joe miller time”, assuming that all of the 180 write in choices for a write-in (in order to confuse the voter) candidate were ignored in favor of the once notable republican Senator from that great state to the north. John Boehner will be the next Speaker of the House and hopefully will bring his manners and upbringing, the good kind, and realize that obstructionism is not governing and his (the corporate interests) mandate is not necessarily the WILL of the people–you know the “American People” that he likes to quote so much, as if he has a cozy relationship with ALL of them and has intimate details as to their wants and needs… Here’s an idea for jobs John, why don’t you ask your puppet corporate masters to STOP OUTSOURCING their jobs overseas to begin with, open up some plants and start manufacturing products here in the United States for a change, oh, you can’t because of the deal you guys made with that global thing and that bank and…oh, forget it. However, it might go a long way in helping you discover the answer to that whole “jobs” question… But, I digress. The President of the United States, Barrack Obama will address the nation today at 1 p.m. and will offer yet another Olive branch to the republicans who have called this win a referendum on Obama’s whole “tax and spend” philosophy, all of that “run away spending” and “record deficits that we are leaving to our grandchildren…”, making it difficult for the man to give the branch when he most likely would just as soon smack them with it. The reality is that IF there is going to be gridlock in Washington, it will now be the FAULT of the Republicorp party, for if it is true that the Senate minority leader, Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell (R-KY) means what he says when he says, “our number one goal in the next two years is to make sure that Obama is a one term President,” with all of the HUGE problems facing our country today, as well as the world’s problems that we are intimately connected to, then, as I said before, “Houston, we have a problem…” As long as we are all CLEAR on that one. You know, honesty John, one of the few traits a gentleman has left in this crazy, zany, mad cap world we live in today, am I right, man? Have a great day everybody! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
