Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this Thursday morning, the thirtieth day of June, 2011, a bright, cool, sunny start to another beautiful day here on Cape Cod and the Islands, and wherever you may be this morning, I pray you and yours are having a good one…  Yesterday, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, held a press conference where he laid down the gauntlet over this whole ‘raising the debt ceiling thing’, that, according to most polls, has the majority of Americans actually opposing that notion, to theirs and the U.S. economy’s detriment, yes, he spelled out the absurdity of the figurative straight jacket the republicans are willing to put on spending for extremely popular social programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, but unwilling to take out the numerous corporate loopholes, such as subsidies for private, corporate jets, agricultural subsidies, oil and gas subsidies, and the fact that there are so many individual loopholes in the U.S. tax code today that one could drive a Mack truck right through the center and not come close to hitting any pedestrians, giving an absurd REAL tax rate to billionaires like Warren Buffet, who has stated that he would be willing to pay more, who pays, and I quote, “about 14 percent, less than my secretary…”  Meanwhile, bat $hit expert, Michelle Bachmann, traveling in South Carolina now and in full presidential campaign mode, God help us, has stated that she wishes to get rid of the minimum wage, you know, ’shared sacrifice’, because, “so many people are hurting out there, and we believe they should keep more of what they earn…”  How Michelle, by paying them 2 dollars an hour?  Ah, the republican party, the “gift that just keeps on giving all year long…” (credit Randy Quaid from the classic film, ‘Christmas Vacation’)–is there no pain you can’t inflict?  I think we should round up Grover Norquist, Michelle Bachmann and David Koch, put them on a plane, take away all of their creature comforts, you know, stuff like food, water, a Blackberry, and leave them in the middle of a large urban setting, homeless and alone, yes, simply leave them at some homeless shelter to fend for themselves for a week.  Let them settle in to their new surroundings, with the homeless, and maybe, just maybe, they will start to see the LIGHT! I love people who spout off things they know NOTHING about, or better yet, take for granted, as if they are entitled to those assets by virtue of birth–little things like shelter, food, water, friendship, LOVE, and self-esteem.  It is pretty difficult to have self-esteem when you are down and out.  So, dear seacapecod.net readers, that is what I mean when I say don’t take any wooden nickles from the likes of FOX NEWS or some clown politician like Mitch, “the mouse”, McConnell (R-KY), the minority leader in the Senate, who held a fake news conference yesterday, at the same time as the President’s, Barack Obama, classy, speaking on behalf of “The American People”, of course, speaking to their most recent desperate move in this epic battle over our national debt, that, if the debt ceiling is not raised, will cause the national and world economies to go into a tail spin.  McConnell, with a hoard of constipated looking white guys behind him, began the impromptu press conference with his normal recalcitrant style and launched into explaining a fantasy of creating a Constitutional amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would not allow congress or the President to raise that debt ceiling, certainly not without a complete and utter “balance of the budget” that they KNOW is an impossibility, as it takes two-thirds of both the House of Representatives and the Senate to ratify such a notion, a bi-partisan effort that has not been see in these here parts for, oh, I don’t know, DECADES! Have a wonderful day folks and may peace someday reign on planet earth! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
