Ti amo, Italian for Love

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:22 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this Sunday morning, a very cool Sunday morning at that, as we here in New England are beginning to feel the effects of fall, as we all put our boats away for the summer season once again.  The trip up to Boston yesterday was amazingly beautiful, with the sunny skies, mixed with some fair weather clouds and a tremendous amount of wind.  When we arrived in the Back Bay, a section of Boston proper, I parked right off of Huntington Avenue, not to far from where I worked for Marsh Inc., in the famous John Hancock Tower, an all glass building 60 stories high that sports a blue hue, and on a day like yesterday, the clouds reflect off of the building giving it an out of this world look, looking less like a building but a work of art.  The crowds for the Obama rally, that also included James Taylor and then a big rally with Elton John and Jeff Bridges, were huge and the lines were long, but the energy was electric with no “enthusiasm gap” noticeable by anyone except some crazy guy walking up and down the line screaming, “do you want higher taxes, then vote democrat!”, or something to that effect, and when I asked him what he was doing, he handed me his notes that included all of the republican “talking points” that we have all heard ad nauseum for the past 20 months…it was as if John Boehner and Mitch McConnell were working the crowd disguised as drunken college students from Harvard’s young republican group.  Yes, the elections are a little less than a month and a half away and if you haven’t heard, this election IS pivotal for the working class, the poor, and the disappearing middle class, while the richest individuals in this fair nation continue to get richer and richer–for the mandate of the RTP, or rather their creators (perhaps there is something to creationism after all), the mult-national corporations and their shareholders, is to abolish social programs in this country forever, bringing us BACKWARDS to the days of Donald Regan, former Treasury Secretary under the Reagan Administration, and the philosophy he brought from Meryl Lynch and the rest of the plutocratic global society–profit over people. In the past week we witnessed a miracle in Chile, where humans really cared enough to go all out to save 33 poor miners trapped in the depths of a gold and silver mine.  Where is the disconnect in the obvious metaphor with our own nation and it’s people who are trapped in a financial shell game that rewards those who are already in the “game” and leaves the rest to starve in the darkness of uncertainty and shame, wondering to themselves, “what the hell happened?”  Millions and millions of people in this country have been fooled into believing the republicans when they say they have the “American people’s” best interest in mind, a real life Stockholm Syndrome where the prisoners (the American people) feel sorry for their captors (the RTP and their handlers, the multi-national corporations) to the point where they are going to ignore real history (being rewritten in a dark basement of the Texas Board of ‘Education’ right NOW, somewhere deep within the heart of Texas)…history that only happened a few years ago under the “leadership” of George W. Bush, the reason we are in this mess to begin with, the subsequent damage that occurred and who was really to blame for it, and therefore, ultimately siding with these wolves in sheep’s clothing, giving them, as President Obama said yesterday, “the keys back to the car that THEY drove into the ditch.”  Logic 101 would dictate that to be FOLLY. Have we turned into a masochistic nation who has become easy prey for the republican strategists, like Karl Rove, who can sit on the Sunday talk shows and LIE directly to our faces when he claims that no foreign money is being poured into republican coffers, creating these nasty attack ads that you all have seen on the television screen–outspending the democrats 20-1?  All this bent on reclaiming the sacred honor of serving the “American people” under the guise of the ‘United States’ Chamber of Commerce, not to be confused with it’s sister company, the United States/Indian Chamber of Commerce, who will gladly accept the millions of jobs we have sent them in our “going out of business sale” here in the good ‘ole USA via a little known word called OUTSOURCING!  We have been fooled again, by design, via the right wing’s real agenda, hidden very deeply within the sick mix, which is to bring this country to it’s collective knees, serving the new GOD of America, the almighty dollar.  Communist Russia, or the old Soviet Union fell, as understood by most scholars, not because of Ronald Reagan’s tough words to Mikael Gorbachev in the mid 1980’s, but rather because their was no sense of GOD in the lives of the leadership of that communist regime, a corrupt and brutal regime that took no prisoners.  We have the makings of that same phenomenon here, as we have most assuredly lost our way as a nation when we have a small country like Chile showing the entire world the importance of human life, while we allow a foreign company like bp to spill over 500 million barrels of oil into one of our most pristine wildernesses in all of America, literally apologizing to them for getting in the way of their toxic, black, tar like substance that has killed more wildlife than anyone really knows, for all of that oil lies at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, 2-5 inches deep, effectively eliminating the oxygen and thus, LIFE itself, breaking down the food chain from it’s most basic beginnings or forms of life, thereby destroying an entire fishing industry, along with all of the wild life and marshes that live there, for generations to come.  I’m sorry, did my head damage the cobblestones as you slam dunked it into the ground with your overwhelming force, leaving me for dead?  We apologized, rather House representative Joe Barton (R-TX) apologized to Tony, “gone sailin’ ” Hayward in early summer, for the audacity of President Obama to insist on a twenty billion dollar fund to help with the mending of the criminal environmental disaster, proving the republican party is in bed with big business, not with the Almighty Himself.  If the republicans gain control of the House of Representatives in the November 2nd mid-term elections, Joe Barton, the man who apologized to the company bp (Stockholm Syndrome), who turned Brown Pelicans black with toxic, deadly oil mixed with another highly toxic substance, the dispersant Corexit 3500, banned in the U.K., will become the new power broker for the Energy Committee in congress and we all know what that means.  It means that the gloves are off and this country, it’s environment and it’s people are in big trouble.  For the RTP, by observing their ACTIONS, do not care about 98 percent of “the American People” and if Teddy Kennedy were alive today, I would bet he might ask Mr. Boehner to step outside, for his Irish temper could not have handled what these monsters plan to do to our beloved nation.  May GOD HELP US! Have a wonderful day and remember, when in doubt, do your own research by following the money, and you may come to realize that these “men” with an “r” next to their name are not in this race for you, they are in it for “them”, the multi-national corporations who are funding this grift.    PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
