Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the breezy, brisk, sunny and soon to be star lit island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Saturday evening, the 21st day of June, 2014, that’s right, the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, as the sun stays awake a little longer according to the creationists out there, so come on down and worship the sun god, for it is right and it is good. I believe that kind of crap was going on over at the GOP prayer fest this past week in Washington D.C., praying for Obama to be a one term president and that Jesus would return soon. ‘God dammit, I told you idiots that the year is 2014 and those freakin’ liberals like Rachel Maddow or Ari Melber over at the communist cable TV station MSNBC, might come a lookin’ for ya! Duck and cover while you still got the chance!
Of course, seacapecod.net must give credit to where credit is due and that credit is due one FOX NEWS commentator Megan Kelly, of “The Kelly File”. I never watched the show, OK maybe once. Yes, Ms. Kelly actually gave it to former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, a sad man who opted in once again on the whole millennium plus long religious war over in the country he invaded, for God knows why, oh yeah, OIL, yes, creating a YOU TUBE video with his daughter scolding our fine President Obama on the job he’s doing overseas, crying foul in his handling of the recent unrest. Actually having the gaul to offer his opinion and disfavor regarding that war and country while he once claimed ‘we would not only be greeted as liberators, but that the war would essentially pay for itself’ (CBO estimates it could cost as much as 4 TRILLION). You know, Iraqi billionaires giving away free cash to mom and pop tax payer back in the sticks, I mean states. Yeah, no backlash when we prop up a Shiite bully who hate rival ‘gang’ Sunnis, no backlash at all Dick! You created this monster and old Megan called you out on it. Good for her, and may I say, perhaps some of the folks over at Rupert, “arrrrgggghhh matie”, Murdoch’s right wing echo chamber are beginning to SEA the light, for they too have children getting older, wondering out loud to themselves, “…why does daddy go to work and lie to all the people watching in America on the TV, why mommy why?” Or something to that effect. Going on to say, “…why is the couch floating out in the yard?
The World is not that interested in Dick Cheney’s attempt (and success I might add, ’cause Dick, being from Colorado and all, I was mighty impressed by that Stetson, and with that Orvis vest, you look all an outdoors man like myself could ask for, well done sir, well done) to outshine Cliven Bundy’s cowboy hat. No sir, that world is glued to its’ respected flat screen TV sets, billions of them, screaming for England, the USA, Brazil, Costa Rica, Argentina, Germany, or even, dare I say, the United States? With the U.S. beating Ghana 2-1 the other night, you just never really know. I pray it is a great World Cup, may it be safe and may it be the best team’s to win. We all know FIFA won’t really give a rat’s behind, the glory of the game always got in the way with all the dark and dirty goings on in one of the most notorious organizations on the face of planet earth. ISIS has nothing on FIFA, in fact, maybe they could learn a thing or two about the finer points regarding pure cruelty to people. Tell all of the slums, and more directly, the living, breathing human beings who live there, and now don’t because you and the Brazilian government kicked them out, yes, perhaps one day, and I hope it’s sooner rather than later, you can tell them, all of them, exactly what they are getting out of the whole thing, you know, when everyone has packed up and gone back home?
But who cares right? Football is a religion and like the Sunnis and Shiites far away across the big blue SEA, the fight for who is ‘best’ will continue. So why should we bomb Iran, I mean Iraq again? And who exactly are we going to bomb Senator? Enough, it is time to take your toy rifle and go play nice with the men in the white suits. Insanity seems to be going around in that republican party, with John McCain leading the way. President Obama has it under control John, so take your medication. Kudos as well to the President for creating a national underwater sea sanctuary out in the Pacific ocean, set about some remote islands rich with SEA life, yes, Kudos indeed sir, leading this ‘year of ACTION’ with some very good stuff, “…top notch, top notch!” (credit the classic 1978 film Caddyshack, starring the late, great Ted Knight, written, of course, by the late, great Harold Ramis). Forcing corporations to cut Carbon emissions from coal plants and other major polluting entities, cutting 30 percent by 2030. A great mandate and good start, by any stroke of luck, we will begin to lead in healing the planet, rather than follow, guiding other nations to do the same. For although Global Warming will be cataclysmic and cause significant alterations to human experiences during our lifetimes, it remains our duty to leave a better world for future generations. To stop the madness of using our air as on open sewer, not to mention our waters and soils, mostly by massive corporate carbon polluters. A monumental folly that is quickly cooking the planet. All for PROFIT. Theirs, not yours…
Not a penny for social programs that help the people who really need help (I guess the Evangelicals never got the Jesus memo on ‘the least of these’), no, not a penny to clean up the messes they caused (bp and the Gulf of Mexico). No, not a penny to create SOLUTIONS to a very real problem that will effect everyone on this little blue rock we all call home for the moment. No, not a penny. That shiny object will remain in their pocket as long as the status quo in Washington remains the same. Have a great evening and rest of the week end. SEA you next week. Until then, Dick Cheney, ‘don’t you go changin’, just to please me’. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
