Rising Sun

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 5:35 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  I awoke very early this morning, walked out to my deck, sat down and looked up at the blackness of the night sky, blanketed by countless stars that never seemed to have shined brighter, and listened to the deafening silence of silence itself.  Silence devoid of any rumblings of man and his inventions.  Silence offering only the equally loud thoughts in my own head, and upon listening to them, realizing that they are just that, merely thoughts, thoughts that have no hold on me any longer, the thoughts that I thought were so important, only to be drowned out by the symphony of silence mirrored by the power of thousands of twinkling lights, traveling millions of Light years just to reach my eyes in little Osterville, Massachusetts, a little village on little old Cape Cod, a little hamlet tucked away in this little nation called the United States of America, only one of many nations on this little blue rock we ALL call home for the moment, and after all, the moment is all we really have…  Having caught the “Values Voters Summit” recently, I wonder if that impressive group, including Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and newly minted tea party poster child, Christine O’Donnell, whose “nutty” (source: Karl Rove only a few days ago) prose and behavior exemplifies the whole of the “movement”, really believe all of the bullsh$t that comes out of their mouths?  Case in point, our buddy from Arkansas, and former Governor, Michael Huckabee, who went on stage at the “no dogs allowed” summit and began to speak to the newly minted health care LAW and one of the upcoming benefits from that law being the concept of “pre-existing” conditions and their dismantling, starting with children first.  You know, like the little boy out in California who had a rare form of cancer and died only a few days ago because of his pre-existing condition, for “Health America”, his insurance company, would not pay for his “experimental drugs” that had been approved in Europe for years.  Huckabee opened up his trap, blasted the concept of eliminating pre-existing conditions from the arsenal of underwriting weapons at “insurance companies”, whose whole purpose is to shore up profit and NOT pay claims, and thus, proceeded to lose the possibility of becoming the next President of the United States–remember, this is a man who was once morbidly obese, who lost 110 pounds, and is a “Christian”, a prerequsite for attending the “Values Voters Summit”.  Therefore, I would contend, that Michael Huckabee is a double hypocrite, like a double agent, but without the girls and the helicopters, and as he began his rant, I swear I could hear the sound of Abraham Lincoln rolling over in his grave.  Mike said of pre-existing conditions, almost as if it were a script and he was being paid by the insurance company “Health America” to demonize the concept of “pre-existing” conditions and how eliminating that fine print underwriting clause would hurt their bottom line, he began offer an analogy, comparing real life human beings who may have some pre-existing condition to buying fire insurance on a business after the business already burned to the ground, drawing a parallel from the burned out building to the ailments of a real live human being, someone who IS just like you, regardless of his skin color, which is only skin deep after all.  Is it not enough for these “values” politicians to ease up on the hypocrisy for one night?  REALLY, come on, you have so much time to inundate us with your theories and schemes that prove to us, again, that you have two faces, but do you have to soil the grounds on the Holiest of nights, the “Values Voters Conference?”  “We cherish this event and when you show your cards like that Mike, proving to the world we are nothing more than a bunch of rich assholes who use the masses to pass our bullsh$t legislation that benefits the wealthiest 2 percent in this country, while it takes a big dump on the rest of “the American People”, you make us look bad…we have this in the bag, man, we don’t need you to give outlets like MSNBC any more ammunition, for the less the rabble, even our own rabble, knows, the more secure our ultimate plan is, to turn this country over to the multi-national corporations, via the lobbyists who outnumber the politicians 25 to 1 in Washington D.C., turning this nation into a neat, orderly and cohesive military unit, um, er, ahhh, I mean nation,” said the loud and menacing voice behind the curtain at the dark event.  We all know, the ones who have been paying attention, what is really going on here, what is at stake and who the “players” are.  The question we are all asking is, if the p.o.h.n./tea party movement does not get their way, like the rantings of an insolent 5 year old with a gun, are you going to follow the insane words of Sharron “Angle” and employ “second amendment” remedies?  Well, are ya punk? Have a wonderful Saturday folks!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
