Threads of History

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:47 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again sunny, stellar, serine and mildly intoxicating island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning, the 19th day of May, 2014, another beauty here at the Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront, as we all look forward to the week ahead in this here world we all share…I wonder what kind of week it will be?  Take your pick of Russian aggression, U.S. primaries, the treatment of women around the globe, racism in America, the NSA, fearless cats, or the yo-yo weather patterns around the world…

If you have been watching any of the national news broadcasts here in the states as of late, you may notice that almost half the content revolves around the extreme meteorological events that have been taking place lately from Baton Rouge to Berlin.  Take ABC’s Sunday night evening news show for example, where the first story was about the vicious wildfires that smoked parts of San Diego, California over the past few days.  25,000 acres have been destroyed from Carlsbad to San Marcos, with 20 million dollars in damage thus far, including the death of a homeless man, God rest his soul.  Moving on from fire, we turn to water and the devastating flooding taking place in Bosnia, where torrential rains have forced many from their homes and businesses.  From water to none, the great news minds bring the masses more on the drought that is so deep in Texas, many are turning to the divine for help, although I am not sure it works that way without us little humans helping out God with our activities, you know, like not using the air and water as an open sewer…

Yes, as ‘the world turns’ WE all must turn with it, but that is easier than it looks in the good ‘ole US of A circa 2014.  The Koch brothers, with their 100 billion dollar ‘nest egg’ (credit the film, “Lost in America”, starring Albert Brooks and Julie Hagerty, a must SEA!, circa 1985), however, will undoubtedly have something to say about the whole thing when they, GOD FORBID, take over the United States of America and turn it into a true Oligarchy run by a few, elite and politically savvy billionaires who have cunningly taken over the entire U.S. House of Representatives and is poised to take the US Senate come November…  If this sophisticated ruse plays out as the Koch brothers envision it, they will attempt to force our very fine President Obama (via extortion) to sign on to the bloody Keystone XL pipeline--blindly pumping dirty highly toxic tar sands oil 1500 miles south from Alberta, Canada, to the “Gas Land” that is the Gulf of Mexico. From the tar sand pits of hell they own half of, yes another pipeline planned to run through the CORE of our beautiful country, running right down the middle of the VITAL Ogallala aquifer, an aquifer that provides all of the water for much of the food many of US eat everyday, not to mention the fact that if approved would lock this country into a dirty energy future for generations to come, effectively spelling “lights out for the environment”, a FACT according to most if not all climate scientists who are not bought off by these ‘titans of industry’, ‘men of vision and courage’, yes sir, a pipeline that only USES the American people’s land.  This land is only a FOR PROFIT highway by big foreign/domestic polluter(s), our good ‘patriot friends’ David and Charles Koch, who will simply ship the crude out to the highest bidder, leaving the American people high and dry once again, but with the ever present danger of another catastrophic oil gusher like the bp disaster on the precious soils of the heartland of America.  Disasters that are still a nightmare for the Gulf of Mexico’s overall environment and population four years later.  All thanks to the 1.9 million of gallons of the deadly toxic Corexit EC9500A (made by ExxonMobil and banned in most countries, e.g., the UK) dispersant sprayed on thousands of square miles in the Gulf waters during the crisis that year, all done in secret with Coast Guard’s blessing and protection by the way.  That’s right folks, all of those 500 million barrels of oil bp ’spilled’ in 2010 is now out of sight and mind forever, sitting on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, creating dead zones without oxygen, thus destroying LIFE from the most basic of it’s components, namely the beginning of the food chain, one celled organisms.  Thus, not so much out of the mind’s of Gulf residents, leaving most fishermen in Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf states with poisonous shrimp and other sea food catches; food they cannot bring to market for it might kill someone–and that signing of that horrible FOR PROFIT ONLY PIPELINE will be the surrender these power hungry oil and gas moguls desire. Much like Russian “President” Vladimir Putin, they will rule this land of the free and home of the brave much like the Kleptocracy it has become, with care only for ‘their’ brothers and sisters, the one percent.  For who is getting richer and who is getting poorer?

The stock market has risen from that low of around 6500 when the Great Recession hit in 2008 to all time highs, focusing in on that 17,000 point soon.  People like David and Charles Koch, due to the boom of FRACKING and the need for their chemical cocktails, have seen their own personal wealth explode as have most other one percenters.  There is no doubt one of our Founding Father’s, James Madison (the 4th U.S. President) was right on the mark when he warned that too much wealth concentrated with too few leads to corruption and the ultimate destruction of democracy.  With the 2010’s SCOTUS’ Citizens United decision, erroneously equating money with speech, effectively leaving 99 percent of the U.S. population watching from the cheap seats, we are, like the weather outside, experiencing all of this change right NOW.

Senator Harry Reid (NV-D), the majority leader of the U.S. Senate, is doing a bang up job exposing these jokers, for they operate in the shadows as their dark money works it’s way from sea to shining sea. They spend millions in local, state and federal elections, and with the help of their shell game playing out via front organizations like Americans for Prosperity, the Koch’s have bought many a politician, judge and mind of many in power who have bent to their will, and that will is to ’shrink the government down to the size where we could drown it in a bathtub’ (credit GOP henchman Grover Norquist), leaving the billionaire brothers and others like them to plunge this great nation of even greater people into bondage and austerity.  All while they make money hand over fist, killing those fellow brothers and sisters with their secret 596 deadly chemical witches brew they use in FRACKING for ‘natural gas’.  GIVE ME A BREAK!  The more you know right?  Have a great week ahead folks and please Google these guys and make up your own mind.   For if you believe all of this is an isolated thing, like the freaky yo-yo weather patterns not being attributable to GLOBAL WARMING, caused, in part, by the profit model of the oil and gas industries, who want to kill green technology ’cause it eats into their profits, profits higher than God’s, well then, you are one of the many Ostriches who continually stick their heads in the proverbial sands when faced with danger, sadly denying it in the dark, thinking that if they concentrate real hard, that danger will not SEA them and pass them on by.  Denial is not just another river in Egypt baby, right “Morning Joe”?  They, like the sheep who drink the FOX “NEWS” Kool-Aid, content approved by the likes of a David Koch, will never notice the FACT that sea levels will rise by a whole lot more than we ‘think’ at this ‘time’.  All while the storms get stronger, the deadly droughts continue to deepen, the wildfires rage on and the richest .001 percent laugh all the way to the bank, a bank that banks off of your back!  These are the ‘threads of history’ we need to pay attention to, you know, the details, for that is where the Devil lives, ever reminding ourselves that, like the late, great American Samuel Johnson once said, “…foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds”… isn’t that right Karl?    PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
