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 beautiful, foggy morning here in Osterville, looking up at this oak tree, I notice, that it sits next to a scrub pine, the most common tree on the Cape and Islands, a small, sturdy, well footed tree that thrives on the mostly sandy clay soil of this region, perhaps only reaching at top height 30 feet, where whole forests of these evergreens are scattered across this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age… You can also make out a seagull who is flying on the constant shifting winds that make the Cape what it is, a weather phenomenon, with the lighting changing as often, painting a new perspective every day, especially around this time of year, from a scenic standpoint, as every new flowering plant or tree is in full bloom or about to be, giving the whole of the Cape a spectacular show of color, not matched in any other part of the world… Not some radical right wing social engineering, no sir, this is something that crap can’t touch. Hallelujah, brother, hallelujah. With the little republican congressman, the freshman puppet brigade of Republicorp of America, making a blood oath to their masters that they will vote for a bill that essentially destroys medicare as we now know it, a move that 80 percent of the “American People” do not want to happen EVER, brings us full circle to what one pundit of reason said recently about this republican party, especially after the Newt message of TRUTH on “Meet the Press” this past Sunday, great job Mr. Gregory, where Newt admitted that the republicans are attempting to pull a fast one on the real American people, by LYING to them, the old bait and switch used by sleazy used car dealers, and undo legislation that is older than I am, or as old, for it was passed into Law in 1965, namely medicare and medicaid, that is the only thing between civilization and abject poverty for millions of seniors, who will lose everything if the Ryan, “I told you to call me Bronco!” (credit Bill Murray and the classic film, “Groundhog Day”) bill passes the Senate, which of course, it won’t–yes, bringing us full circle to what one pundit said, “it’s like when the crazies take over the basically already kind of criminal insane asylum…” But don’t you just love the fact that the republican party is being taken over by the crazies, the rabid anti-abortion crowd, the NRA nuts, the really big, big intrusive government being introduced by Governors like Walker and Snyder, of Wisconsin and Michigan respectively, who both speak of “smaller government with reduced spending and have begun this via the process of destroying the middle class, while in Michigan, literally taking over control of cities that can’t pay their bills, turning it into an real life Plutocracy on the micro level, thankfully, at present, and, god willing, will remain as such. The republican party, in this 112th congress, has proposed nothing regarding jobs, and has been, in the very distant now past, the common sense arm of a once proud and good party of real values, but has now been hijacked by a radicalized far-off-the-cliff right wing agenda (some would say bordering on fascist), that has nothing to do with improving the standard of living for 98 percent of the real American People, rather, it has an agenda that is going backwards, as it attempts to strong arm women and their RIGHT to choose what goes on with their own bodies, as it goes after gay people who simply want to live a life without the hassle of enduring someone’s insane “take” on the Bible (as they sit in smug judgement), much of which has been badly translated, twisting and manipulating the words of Jesus Christ himself to meet the needs or power at the time it was “re-written”, and thus, by the the mid-16th century, all hell broke loose and you had the birth of the Protestant Faith–I think that’s right, I might be off by a century, what do you want, I was a MODERN European major in college–which caused more DEATHS in the name of that most HOLY of men, than it saved. The lights are on, but nobody is at home in the republican kitchen of the MIND, and as they all sit around that kitchen table, the one they always pine about, I’m sure the only thing this grouping of mice, I mean men, are looking for is a way out of the hole that they have just climbed into, or limb if you prefer falling scenarios. For as soon as the next election roles around, they will be caught in a catch 22, where they are damned by the tea party, the corporate sponsored and thus, very powerful ‘tea party’ group, hi Karl, Dave, Charles, or and, and perhaps much worse, doubly damned by the republican electorate, and America as a whole, who will have their heads if they try and dissolve medicare or medicaid, two programs only a year and a half ago they were all too proud to yell out in response to “Obama care”, “keep your damn hands off of my medicare!” Good luck boys, you are so stupid. It is fun to watch though, and I want to personally thank Newt for coming out into the LIGHT and telling the truth, as if sanctified in the immortal words of the classic film, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, when talking about witches, with one of the crew yelling in response to evidence of this woman being a witch, “She turned me into a Newt,” then quickly added, “well, I got better…” No one really likes the TRUTH, accept me perhaps, and some other good people I know, and little weasels who dabble in politics certainly don’t. When a$$holes are thinking about taking away medicare and medicaid from the elderly and the poor, while you voted down, only yesterday, a bill to stop paying tax payer subsidies to oil companies that, combined, pulled in over a trillion dollars of profit just last year alone, a record in the history of MAN himself, or herself as the case may be, the public must be made aware of it–because the corporate owned airwaves, save MSNBC, PBS, BBC World News America, and some others, are just not going to go there, why would they, they are part of the problem! Do yourself a favor folks and read up before it is too late, i.e., The Nation magazine, Vanity Fair, Mother Jones, the New York Times and the Washington Post are all good places to start. The spin doctors have people working around the clock to feed you lies, ask yourself, “Don’t I, my family and our nation as a whole deserve better than this Stockholm Syndrome–haven’t WE had enough bull$hit?” Have a nice day and God’s continued speed to the good folks in Louisiana, we are all pulling for you. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
