Spooky Sunrise

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:10 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this beautiful day here in Osterville, not as scary as the sunrise you see above you, an image taken from “Faith Hill”, at Dowses Beach, here in that tiny, tiny seaside village… an image of our star after a hurricane missed the area only a few short months ago.  I use this image to represent, of course, the picture corporate owned and operated Standard and Poor’s, the rating agency that recently downgraded U.S. Treasury bonds from a AAA rating to a AA plus, wants the “American People” to see…a move that was partially to blame for yesterday’s Dow Jones Industrial sell off of over 634 points, wiping out all of the gains for the year and then some, yes, this is the spooky picture that that quasi government institution wants you to see.  We must take the S&P with a big grain of salt, however, for they are the same rating agency that gave all of those junk, sub-prime derivatives/credit default swaps a AAA rating, along with giving Lehman brothers, the giant, now gone, investment bank, that same rating days before the crash of 2008.  Credibility is not synonymous with S&P.  These ‘men’, John Chambers and the guy from London, who head up this once prestigious company, claim that political brinkmanship and the lack of fiscal ‘progress’ in Washington was the real reason for the downgrade…really?  It seems to US all that you folks are the ones who are playing with fuzzy math (2 trillion dollar error in the S&P calculations) and playing political football with the nation’s and indeed world’s economies.  The fact is, Republicorp of America is using this firm as a platform for more spending cuts in November that will hurt the most vulnerable among us, herding more cash to the top one tenth of the top one percent, you know, those 400 people that own half of the wealth in this nation, or that equal to 150 million people–those 400 people that are going to ‘create jobs’ in this country, ’cause gosh darn-it, they just love the good ‘ole US of A too much to let anything happen to her or her people… Heeuuck! It is a political game reeking of a true to life Stockholm Syndrome, where the captors, the hostage takers, not only steal all of the gold via extortion, but while still threatening their captors (”the American People”), they sadistically instill more FEAR in them, so much so, that the abused captives will resort to anything to appease their abusers, their jailers, their masters… Common behaviors include appeasement of their endless and insane demands, ultimately feeling sorry for them, as many rape victims do, or those who have suffered a trauma as the result of a vicious assault, or live military action.  Rupert Murdoch’s boys know this, as do the boys over at the Heritage Foundation, believe me, I KNOW, and thus, will continue these tactics until they finally get what they wanted all along–a Plutocracy that keeps the poor, huddled masses in their place, while continuing to rape and pillage OUR lands for the short term profits that will mark their gravestones.  Please continue to say a prayer for those brother’s and sister’s suffering in the greatest Humanitarian crisis of our lifetimes– going on right NOW in the horn of Africa, Somalia to be exact, where millions of refugees are fleeing that drought stricken country in search of food and water, with many women and children dying along the way.  If you wish to help, as AID is really getting in to Kenya and the other refugee camps, please visit, savethechildren.org or care.org…  Thank you.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
