Ti amo

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:24 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  Good, as always to be with you on this Thursday morning here in Osterville, as the sun did rise once again, and we are experiencing some spectacular weather, with cool temperatures and sunny skies…come on down and visit us, we will leave the LIGHT on for YA!  The primary political races in the northeast, Delaware in particular, have many eyebrows raised in the republican main stream, as the tea party express rolls on in and over anybody that stands in it’s way.  I don’t think all of the “official members” of the now illustrious “tea party” really know what these self proclaimed “young guns”, such as Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan, are up too, and what they plan to do with the progress that has been made in Washington D.C., starting with the debate over the unpaid for Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003.  The fact of the matter is this, if we extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2 percent in this country, we will add 700 billion dollars to the national debt, borrowed money from foreign investors, such as China.  The central argument is that it will affect small businesses, of which 97 percent of don’t make over $250,000. a year.  But, the republican’s argument is that of the 3 percent that do make over that tax line drawn in the sand, they make up almost half of the tax revenue generated from small businesses…however, taking a closer look at those “businesses”, it has been revealed that they are made up largely of hedge fund managers, law firms and Fortune 100 companies, that don’t employ that many workers.  In fact, these successful “small businesses” employ next to no workers, nor do they have plans on extending their labor force, for really, how many employees do you need to rob grandma’s 401 (k) plan?  The whole argument that the “young guns” have is weak and full of holes, along with a boat load of hypocrisy.  How can the p.o.h.n./tea party movement, with it’s central message being one of fiscal responsibility, go to “the American People” and say, “we are fiscally conservative only when it comes to helping the poor and the people who have been affected by Cheney/Bush fiscal policies, “trickle down economics”, with the emphasis on the word “trickle”, i.e. the shipping of most JOBS in America overseas, for tax reasons as well as labor laws…to sum up, we don’t plan to help them in any way shape or form.”  Would that not be refreshing?  The TRUTH? Young guns, hey, I’ve got and idea, instead of tax breaks, why don’t we just buy everybody a gun, so that when the rapture arrives, we can just blow Jesus away–you know, “second amendment remedies”… Disclaimer:  “We don’t, here at seacapecod.net, encourage any violence of any kind, and wrote that last comment in jest only.”  A disclaimer that perhaps, the republican party would be wise to embrace, for in the end, we are all ONE, and inclusion is the name of the game, the opposite of the p.o.h.n./tea party movement’s central message:  “if you don’t look like us, talk like us, and think like us, you are not welcome in our party..!”  Have a nice day everybody!      PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
