Rise Above…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:40 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cool, misty, foggy, quite windy and raw island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning, the fourth day of June, 2012, a very chilly, wet and wild day, again, here in the Old Cape town of Cotuit, ‘where the ocean meets the wood’, looking out onto the bay outside of my window of the same name, barely being able to make out the shadowy forms of boats that now fill said harbor, as the fog is as thick as the proverbial pea soup that may be on the White House menu today…  Of course, that is what it looks like on ‘ye ole’ campaign trail as the two candidates, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney ratchet up the rhetoric to a fever pitch with nothing less than the future of OUR democracy at stake.  A microcosm of that epic battle on November 6th of this year is taking place tomorrow in the great state of Wisconsin, where Scott Walker, the Governor, currently, is being challenged by Tom Barrett, a fine man whose debate performance against the Koch brothers favorite son pretty much spelled out the problem with Walker and his dismantling of unions in that fair state, effectively taking away the rights for workers to organize and have a voice, you know–democracy in ACTION!  It should be interesting as Walker has amassed 12 times as much cash, millions more, most coming from out of state contributions, such as “Americans for Prosperity”, the David and Charles Koch’ ‘grass roots’ super PAC, a group that would like to sea the minimum wage dropped while their chemicals continue to wreak havoc on our environment, for they are not too keen on that whole “regulation” thing, you know, little things like the clean air and water acts put in place in the 1970’s to keep people like them from destroying this bounty of nature WE all share. Have a nice day and week ahead folks and good luck to the people of Wisconsin, Tom Barrett especially…go get ‘em tiger!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
