One ’small’ Light

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:09 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the fogged in island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this Wednesday morning, the ninth day of November, 2011, yes, as already noted, a very, very foggy one on the Cape and islands, especially on Nantucket, the grand island you can see above you right now, although, this offers a ray of light, as opposed to that foggy cloud.  Brandt Point Light, the small, sturdy lighthouse that has been dubbed, ‘the lighthouse with nine lives’, because of the fact it has been blown down countless times by storm after storm over the many years of it’s existence, dating all the way back to the Continental Congress and the days of British war ships deciding on whether or not Nantucket was ‘on their side’ or not, while Paul Revere sounded off those ‘bells, wickedly riding his pony through the streets of Boston, oh, yeah, and also, yes, also while re-loading his musket, ‘ya know!, warnin’ dose British that we knew they were coming, or we were coming? I ‘don’t know, but it was something like ‘dat, will ya just accept ‘dat?’ (credit any number of republican candidates, deeply steeped in American history, who were either considering a run for the highest office in the land or are currently still doing so for some odd reason…), yes, Brandt Point Light was named thus for the Brandt Geese that frequent these here parts during the winter months, coming, like the proposed XL Keystone pipeline, God forbid, down from our northern friends in Canada and offers a LIGHT to guide sea going vessels from the cold, nasty, treacherous, sometimes dangerous Atlantic into the harbor of Nantucket, where sailors of ‘yore can pull up a chair, sit back and enjoy all that wonderful island has to offer.  So too, it is my contention, that “Occupy Wall Street”, a REAL grass roots movement of the organic variety, impervious to corruption as it has no one to ‘corrupt’, offers that same light Brandt Point once offered to sea going souls, bringing US back into alignment with what is RIGHT and far away from the rock of what is so clearly wrong.  Seeing the level of caring, conscious, humanity within the movement all around the globe, for the most part, the peaceful way about the crowd makes one see the deep need for people to connect once again with each other, filling that void as one preacher stated so well, mourning the loss of that common thread of humanity we all share, whether we acknowledge it or not.  Exemplifying this very point yesterday at Zuccotti Park were none other than Mr. Graham Nash and Mr. David Crosby, of the great band of the same name, ‘Crosby, Stills & Nash’, who also appeared on “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, airing every week night at 8 p.m., EDT, (and again at 11 p.m., 2 a.m., 7, noon and three the next day) only on Current TV, appearing last night, as just two grown men who actually sang, acapella, this very cool song of peace on Keith’s show, LIVE, really touching this humble reporters heart.  With that level of humanity and humility, coupled with purpose and armed with the TRUTH, this ‘movement’ or AWAKENING cannot, or will not fail.  Evidence of this FACT is beginning to surface in places far away from Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan, places such as Ohio, a state so different from New York City it might as well be on a different planet (just like Mitch, “the turtle”, McConnell R-KY)), I know, I lived in both places, as last night SB-5 was repealed, done away with, $hit canned as it were.  The labor crushing bill introduced by the Koch brothers, I mean puppet Governor John Kasich, former scum bag lobbyist, to keep workers on par with Chinese day laborers, you know, without any rights whatsoever, like SLAVES, keeping them from organizing, keeping them from demanding decent working conditions, and keeping them from demanding FAIR pay, especially in relation to productivity, yes, that horrible bill that spawned massive protests all over the Midwest and beyond–such as in Wisconsin just this past January, where workers of all stripes, from cops to firemen, from teachers to janitors spoke out in the tens of thousands in the freezing cold of a Wisconsin winter–was repealed by a fired up electorate in that great state, demanding that they MUST keep the right to organize so as to assure that they won’t be taken advantage of by the likes of ‘THE BROTHER’S KOCH’, who have their hands in everyone’s pie these days.  Yes, the brothers’ who are, ‘my brother(s) from a different mother’, ’tis true, however, my mother taught me not to steal, cheat, lie, pollute and create a system where a tiny, tiny fraction of the American citizenry can manipulate it’s leaders to the degree that the WHOLE of the nation itself suffers needlessly.  I live in the same town as your Dad, David Koch, and I can assure you, you are not as big as you may think!  The true AMERICAN PEOPLE are waking up to this slowly but surely, yes, waking up to the FACT that not only do you and many of your brethren in the oil, gas and chemical business put PROFIT before PEOPLE, but moreover, you don’t even want those people to have somewhat of a decent life, for it cuts into your Feudalistic, plutocratic vision of this country’s future.  However, as witnessed today on national television, with John Kasich stating it best, “The American people have spoken…”.  You bet they have a$$hole and they have said, in the immortal words of Donald Trump, ‘your fired!’.  Your ‘policies’ are fired, your philosophy is fired, and your hijacked republican party is fired, for this ‘party’ does not represent it’s people at all, and those ‘people’ are  beginning to wake up to this FACT, even as they listen to nasty hobgoblins like Rush Limbaugh, who is a SCUM BAG of the highest order!  Your ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’ represents the opposite, the POLAR opposite of “Occupy EARTH”, and thus, will be snuffed out as irrelevant, greedy, and immoral in the end, with the historians being there to record every word of it, so help US GOD!  Have a nice day folks and may the force be with you! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace! M
