Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the soon to be rain swept island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, the 21st day of October, 2014, and as you may surmise from the ominous picture you SEA above (image taken 10/21), no apology on the pun as it is my only Ad by as it were, the aforementioned islands and the Cape expect a drenching rain event as we speak, along with New York City and Downeast Maine, a sign that winter weather may soon be on the way…
Never you mind though fans of political high theater, as this nation gets ready to vote in 14 days, voting in what looks like the first wave of a hostile plutocratic takeover. But who cares right? By the time the oil and gas industry pull out five times more carbon than the earth can handle, what’s one Divinely inspired democracy anyhow?
Leave to our ‘friends’ at FOX though, ’cause here in the good ‘ole US of A, we like to stay super ignorant and full of fear, anger, jealousy, rage, regret, anger, hopelessness, and self-pity, leaving our viewers looking for the proverbial cliff to jump off of. For what else is their option? I speak of the FOX viewer here. The commentators and ‘pundits’ (on that fine example of a 1933 WWII Joseph Goebbels like brainwashing rerun) are too far gone to save–to pull back into reality.
Take our buddy George Will, who recently went on FOX Sunday (a regular sell out) and spouted his “knowledge” of the Ebola virus to the world. Explaining what infectious disease experts have abjectly refuted, namely the ‘fact’ Ebola is now an ‘air born’ disease (apparently mutating in the FOX ‘news’ room overnight, complete with sworn testimony from ‘experts’ at the University of Minnesota that do not seem to exist, as the University told reporters they never said anything of the sort).
It warms my heart to know that the so called right wing ‘intellectual’, on the right side of the business of punditry, has everyone’s ‘best’ interests in mind. Just like he deeply cares for the ‘American People’. His people rather, those who receive that top notch, world class medical care and don’t have to worry about nothin’ because they have all of the money, opportunity, policies and politics, oh, and a seat at the coming plutocracy…
Stick to baseball George, at least you know a thing or two about that. Although Keith Olbermann, now on ESPN, could probably kick your a$$ in that one too!
The metaphor of a FOX for what they, Rupert, ‘arrrggghhhh matie’, Murdoch and the extensions of his massive EGO (don’t you go changin’ just to please me Rupert, you OLD scallywag!) call a news/opinion organization is perfect. For like a real FOX you SEA below, an image taken by this reporter a few days ago in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, you may think twice about hiring him to watch over your hen house.
The sad viewers who take in all of this nonsense being spewed (like the billions of tons of Carbon and Methane poured into our atmosphere every day by the big corporate, subsidized polluters) by the toxic ‘hosts’ (parasites rather), Bill O’Reilly, Steve Ducey, you get the picture, are the victims of the terrible metaphorical game of being held hostage by someone who obviously does NOT have your best interests in mind, no sir! The overwhelming Stockholm Syndrome, where the captors feel sorry for it’s captors, namely, the plutocrat of the day…
These ‘men and women’ working for the corporate ‘communication’ agenda de jour care nothing for the trials and tribulations of everyday American people. The VAST majority of US!!
They only care about ratings, thus the only thing they really care about is MONEY. Bottom line.
Advertisements pay the light bill and the overinflated salaries of a grouping of wild parrots who repeat whatever comes out of the mouth of some lunatic who bugs the phone of the Prince and Wales and his mate. Give US a break Rupert, and wake up America! FOX ‘news’ is a joke and like the big pharma it peddles on TV, side effects include, but are not limited to, brain damage, a loss of one’s soul, trouble urinating, irritable bowels, fever, and the overwhelming notion that you are turning into the fabled Chicken Little, as the proverbial FOX whispers into your hen house door, ‘…the sky is falling, the sky is falling, the sky is falling….”.
Have a great day!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
