Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the frigid, sunny island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning, the sixteenth day of January, 2012, another day of frozen sand and clear skies in the little Cape town of Cotuit, ‘where the ocean meets the wood…’, a day this country sets aside for the remembrance and celebration of the life and accomplishments one of OUR greatest Civil RIGHTS leaders in the march towards equality for all, ‘where our children will not be judged by the color of their skin, rather, by the content of their character’. That man is, of course, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was cut down in his prime by the bullets of hate and intolerance during the turbulent decade that was the 1960’s, a problem that still exists today, but has dissipated slightly over the course of the past four decades since King’s death, as evidenced by the fact we have a very fine President in the White House today, named Barack Obama, the first African-American elected to that highest office in the land, and, hopefully, will remain there, as we gear up for the most provocative and important elections this country has ever seen–a fight for the very heart and soul of what this great and proud nation once stood for above all else, ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness’, a nation that is in need of some real TLC and a break from an obviously rigged and fraudulent ’system’ that rewards only a few, with 1 in 2 Americans now, in this year of 2012, at or below the poverty line, 150 million real PEOPLE! The American public has, through no fault of their own, been largely unaware and ignorant of the ‘quiet rooms’ (credit Mitt Romney), where folks like a Mitt Romney plan to turn this country into one big Walmart, with a giant bill board reading, ‘corporations are people too my friend’, followed up by, ‘where do you think all of that money goes? Back into the people’s pocket’…yes sir, that is a direct quote, and LIE, from Mr. One Percent, the face of Wall Street, ‘America’s CEO’, Mr. Mitt Romney, who will most assuredly be the republican nominee to go up against Barack Obama this Fall–a very clear choice for all Americans who are beginning to wake up to some sobering FACTS about what has REALLY been going on for the past three decades at least, as CEO’s have gamed the system, rigging it to the point, if they are elected back into the Executive, where a very real highway into poverty has been created by the plutocratic vision for millions and millions of Americans– becoming ‘the new normal’, the norm, as guys like ‘Mitt’ make 85 million on one deal at Bain Capital alone, with the help of Indiana tax payers I might add, another example of corporations making money FROM the people’s money. Either you ‘believe’ corporations have hearts, souls and feelings or you don’t, it is that simple. Can’t have it both ways Mitt old buddy. Large multinational companies are interested in one thing and one thing only–making MONEY, not creating a more ‘perfect union’, so please, for the Love of GOD, keep that in mind on this day where WE recall those immortal words of that great man, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., ‘WE shall overcome…”. Have a nice day folks and week ahead, keeping the faith that creative intelligence–peace, LOVE and joy at it’s core–will, like LIGHT itself, always conquer darkness, whatever form ‘it’ might take. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
