Ship’s Ahoy!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:35 am

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 Saturday morning, a cool one here in Osterville, as the little seaside village prepares for a Thanksgiving the likes of Norman Rockwell would be proud of.  I live in one of the wealthiest towns in North America, ironic, I know, and with a trip scheduled to my favorite island of the greater Cape Cod and the Islands “metropolitan” area, Nantucket, to visit some “old friends” and photograph some areas that I would just as soon forget, i.e. the Nantucket Police Department, oh yes, my friends at “60 Minutes” will be talking to you sooner than you think… I will have time to think about all of the people in this country who are really down and out, with little to no hope in their hearts, for as they listen to the insane rantings of REPUBLICORP’s propaganda machine, “FOX NEWS”, and are thus, brainwashed into thinking that “men” like John, “billy bob”, Boehner are “on their side”, you know, the spokesperson for said, ad nauseam, “the American People”, their chances of getting out of the darkness of a deep cave filled with LIES, innuendo, paranoia and fear/hate mongering, with a little racism thrown in for good measure, are slim to none–for there is no substitute for the complete and utter disgrace of the GOP’s hypocrisy, this close to the holiday season of giving, when they are demanding a tax break for the richest 2 percent of the American population, amounting to 700 billion dollars added to the deficit courtesy of our friends in China, when “they” are, at the same time, not willing to extend unemployment benefits for millions of American people who cannot find a job if it fell out of the sky.  In the past 25 years, the top 1 percent in this nation has gained 80 percent of the wealth, while the wages for those lucky enough to have a job saw their living wages go down, and witnessing an austerity exercise that punishes the poor in this nation and rewards the rich– to the tune, again, of 144 billion dollars, a record, of bonuses paid out to Wall Street executives…”Can you say shakedown?  Sure, I knew that you could,” is enough to make one very sick to the stomach. This is Orwellian, but much worse than that, for it is not fiction, it is very real and as the REPUBLICORP speaks to “cutting spending”, while they pass the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 for said top two percent, while millions of families who are poorer than church mice go hungry this Thanksgiving, we should all take a moment of silence to pray for the souls of these scoundrels, for that is what they are, SCOUNDRELS, who care nothing for the sanctity of Life, let alone the sanctity of the words written 235 years ago by much greater men then they– such as Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin, and a few years later by Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jack Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., who “got it” when it came to how we should treat one other, how we care for one another and how we act as, our late President Ronald Reagan plagiarized, “a shining city on a hill.” (Reagan added the word shining to an already famous quote)…  We are a laughing stock when someone with an adequate amount of intelligence thinks of “America” as a shining city on a hill.  A shining city on a hill that rewards only the few and takes a giant dump on the rest of the population, who are seen more as animals, cattle, to be herded this way and that, for the puppeteers gain, “the man behind the curtain,” such as the Koch Brothers, and cheer, literally give standing ovations for a former President who, if he stepped out of this country to peddle his “book” would be arrested for war crimes, such as water boarding, that he now boasts about like some crazy, cheap dime store cowboy who pretends to clear brush, when he lives in a 15 million dollar home in Dallas, Texas where he has “guadeloupe” mow the grass, pick up the dog poop and trim the bushes, no pun intended.  If there is a GOD in heaven, and this country is blessed by GOD, as every American President has claimed, I sure hope he makes his PRESENCE KNOWN soon…for this country of ours is headed for that GRAND CANYON of haves and have nots–a true PLUTOCRACY-- all in the name of the Almighty dollar, and every Sunday, you can see them worshiping at the alter of that utterly FALSE GOD, “PROFIT OVER PEOPLE.”  Have a wonderful day everybody!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
