Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the cozy, snowy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Saturday morning, the twenty-first day of January, 2012, a beautiful one on Cape, if you are like this reporter, who enjoys a good snow storm on occasion, looking out onto Cotuit Bay, ‘where the ocean meets the wood’, as the snow gently falls on the ‘ancient path’ that leads down to those hallowed waters… What a few days it has been yes? The United States of America is about to merge with the reality it cannot live in a bubble, much like Japan realized hundreds of years ago in that, even though it’s people lived on an island, it was not, really, an island, as it turned out, unto itself…it is connected, just like WE, the citizens of this nation, and world, will be forever so. “SOPA” (stop on line productivity altogether) and “PIPA” (please Google), two pieces of legislation that were up for a vote in Washington D.C. this past week to supposedly stop on line ‘piracy’, yes, thank the LORD above, those ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ bills written by some pretty evil people were postponed yesterday by the House and Senate amongst a world wide protest as it would have amounted to creating CENSORSHIP of OUR free speech under the ‘guise’ of on line piracy, and is just another example of how the republican elites want to control thought, speech and behavior, such as a woman’s right to choose, thus, on par with the whole ‘voter fraud issue’ (really voter suppression via new tough voter ID laws), that has become a real, laughable red herring for anyone with half a brain. Hats off to Google, Wikipedia and others who brought this to LIGHT yesterday by blacking it out, for if this nation loses it’s ability to speak it’s mind without fear of ‘punishment’ from tyrannical individuals who don’t play nice with others, then, like the XL Keystone Pipeline and it’s contribution to carbon dioxide output, ‘it will amount to lights out for our democracy’… Stay strong America, hell, you’ve got another republican debate coming up on Monday night, bringing more of the crazy as these ‘friends’ of ours continue their fight into South Carolina today in the country’s third primary of the year… Go Newt? Have a nice day and rest of the week end folks, keeping clear of wooden nickles offered up by FOX NEWS, side effects, as always, include blurred vision, nausea, cramping, hot flashes and a desire to jump off the nearest bridge. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
