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 blustery, cool Saturday morning on Cape Cod, the fifteenth day of October, 2011, and a fine adieu to you and yours wherever this ‘message in a bottle’ may be reaching you. Yesterday, in New York City, as well as in Denver and several other “Occupy Wall Street” venues across the country and indeed world, there were more arrests and examples of police brutality, only reinforcing a movement that is ORGANIC in nature, you know, that ’science stuff’, only this time it’s turned all the way UP so ‘they’ can’t ignore it, as more and more American citizens are WAKING up to FACTS, as opposed to the fiction they have been spoon fed by the corporate media, and are, thus, beginning to ‘real eyes’ (credit author Michael Brown and the book, “The Present Process”) that they too have a voice in a life, that, the last time they checked, was actually theirs, as well as their children’s and their friends and neighbors, who all make up their lives exponentially more than these crooked, in more than rare exceptions these days, puppet politicians, giving puppets and politicians a bad name, who will forever bow down before the god’s of Wall Street, the oil and gas industry, as well as other multi-national corporate entities, who care NOTHING for the common man or woman in this nation, rather, are only interested in short term, short sighted PROFITS, a model of governance that has taken hold but good in the past three decades or so in this nation that is screaming out for a REAL leader, one who can begin to mend the wounds that were caused by a cancer that is eating away at this great land of ours, a cancer that can be summed up in a word, a word that defines the lust for money and power–GREED. The police actions, brought on by a decade long militarization of the police forces in this country, wherein many, not all by any means, but many cops take the law into their own hands and literally hurt the citizens they are sworn to ‘protect and serve’. They see civilians, many, not most, as enemy combatants who, even when peaceably assembled, which is their RIGHT under the Constitution, see them as somehow seperate from them in everyway, especially ‘agitotors’ and therefore see them breaking the ‘chain of command’ of our ever becoming plutocratic society. An underlying Marshall law mentality has ensued, wherein, we feel ’safer’ if we have a bunch of heavily armed men, armed with semi-automatic weapons, marching around looking for the ghost of Osama bin Laden. How much safer are we really and, with the security only getting more ridiculous, how much safer do we want to feel, honestly? Just ask some of the witnesses to yesterday’s bloody confrontation on Wall Street, where a man, who was a law observer for the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, was violently run over by a cop motorbike, while another man was (all taped and can be watched today on “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, please GOOGLE for more information, as you can catch all of this amazing coverage LIVE weeknights at 8 p.m., EDT, only on Current TV) hit by a cop, hit with the cop’s FIST in his face, in front of hundreds of cameras (all happening with the crowd chanting, “THE WORLD IS WATCHING”), that’s right, the cop just hauled off and whacked him, with many other incidents of brutality excesses at will by the NYPD being captured on video tape! I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel all that safe, well, I do, but then again, I survived being brutally attacked by a rouge cop myself and KNOW what it is like to be assaulted and left for dead… What takes more guts, standing up for what you believe in by exercising your Constitutional right to free speech, peaceable assembly, as well as the actionable right to stand up to brutal inhuman thuggery? Or, does it take more guts to dress up in battalion gear, ready for WAR, march out and start whacking innocent, peaceful men and women who are marching about something these idiots might just be interested in if they took enough time to realize their actions, beating innocent people, are the actions of pawns, pawns in a larger game being played by people who wish the status quo to remain the same, hoping a game called the corporate occupation of Washington D.C (Republicorp of America), all bought, paid and brought to you by xyz corporation, will remain unchanged and untouchable, in a system that is ruled by greedy plutocrats who have their collective heads buried in the sand, as the earth’s temperatures continue to rise due to our lack of foresight and care into an atmosphere we all live WITHIN! God’s speed to the protesters all over this great land of ours, today and tomorrow, for your efforts to ‘give the common man, or woman a fair shake’ is not that much to ask of a small minority of people who have had it so good for the past fifty years or so… at least. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
