Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket! Good to be with you on this Sunday morning, the twenty ninth day of August, 2010, with another gorgeous day on tap for the Cape and islands. I hope the weather is cooperating wherever this note might be reaching you and that you and yours are safe and warm… The Sunday morning talk shows will be ablaze once again, with ABC and NBC leading the way, unless you consider FOX NEWS a credible source of information and/or facts, a little ingredient that makes the whole show worth while to begin with. I have to again, hand it to the highly paid consultants and republican strategists who put together the “non-political” rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial yesterday, a day normally set aside for the remembrance of the historic speech of Martin Luther King Jr., who 47 years ago, on August 28th, 1963, changed many African-American and, indeed, many American lives in general, where he proclaimed that, “I have a dream,” imparting the Knowledge that all men are indeed created equal despite the color of their skin and should be judged upon the content of their character…a fact that seems to have been lost on the corporate sponsored “tea party” movement that showed up in droves yesterday on the Mall in Washington D.C. and listened to the game show host, I mean moderator, Glenn Beck, who spoke about GOD quite a bit, evoking the HOLY SPIRIT to bring him, or rather bring US to salvation. Salvation from the evil practices of providing universal health care to it’s citizens, keeping an environment clean of 596 chemicals from the “fracking”, hydraulic fracturing of rock to produce “natural gas”, let alone an entire ocean that is still filled with the highly toxic chemical compound known as COREXIT 3500, designed to mask the oil, or rather “disperse it”, so that it did not look like the Exxon Valdez disaster of 21 years ago, keeping banks from destroying our fragile economy with casino like practices, the destruction of our educational system, our regulatory systems in general, our environmental protection agency, not to mention social programs, solvent programs like social security, our medicare program and some other safety net programs designed to rebuild what the last 30 years of unregulated government has actually done to this great country of ours–creating an ever widening gap between the have’s and the have nots. I’m not sure what GOD has to do with any of that, for it sounds more like the will of man, or the will of the ego’s of a few very rich men, who use GOD as a front man to gain as much as they can, stealing money from the poorest of the poor in order to get re-elected this upcoming fall– to truly create a plutonomy that no one really wants to talk about on the homogenized news “outlets” owned and operated by the very corporations I am speaking of right here and right NOW. The “new puppets on the block”, the Sharron “Angle’s” of the world, offer nothing in the way of what Jefferson, Adams, Franklin and Thomas Paine had in mind when they lived in this same country over 235 years ago. Not a lot of time when you consider Cape Cod was created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age. Men like Franklin Delano Roosevelt fought similar battles with “robber Barron’s” who manipulated the TRUTH and sold it like snake oil on the steps of town halls all across this great country, muddying the waters with incorrect “facts”, or better yet, straight out lies, then, fueling those lies, with fear and hate that resulted in elections that only served to bring this country backwards, all for the purpose of gaining power and money, while keeping the “working man” down, his wages flat, and, if he is lucky enough to have a job, keep him or her in fear of rocking the boat, for his slave like job might disappear if he does not fall in lock step with the likes of a “she turned me into a Newt”, Gingrich or Sarah, “I shoot innocent wolves from a helicopter”, Palin who acted and ACT as the heavy stewards of hate, fear, and violent rhetoric that comes out in the form of “second amendment remedies”…Great job Beck, you really nailed that rally! The Holy Spirit was with you in one sense only, you had the good taste to actually leave politics out of it, but missed the point of the Holy Spirit completely, for you must know, as you now own your own University, that the Holy Spirit is within each and every one of us, and speaks to us through other people. He does not have a political affiliation or agenda, nor a religious one, and has, as his only goal, one thing in mind, to remind US all that we are really all one collective soul, one source, one LIGHT and one LOVE, here to serve one another– all of US! Exclusion is not his game, inclusion is, and when I looked out at your little rally yesterday, I did not see a whole lot of inclusion, rather, a sloppy group of retired white people who are “sick of the federal government getting in their business”, one of the many talking points that Frank Luntz and “word doctors.com” put together for YA! Tell all of that horsesh$t to the shrimper on the Gulf, whose “small business”, independent of the federal government, will be forever tainted by the MMS (mineral management services) of the BUSH adminsitration, whose lack of regulatory practice allowed for millions upon millions of barrels of oil to be dumped into his fishing grounds, along with a highly toxic, banned (for ten years now in the U.K.) substance called Corexit 3500, the effects still unknown; just like the 596 chemicals in the “fracking” process of the other arm of the oil and gas industry, all brought to you by, “The Koch brothers, fu$king up America for over 40 years now, bringing hazardous waste to your backyard and then telling you to go fu$k yourself at the same time…” No wonder the p.o.h.n. and their employers want to eliminate the EPA, because they don’t want the 37 states now facing this problem of 596 chemicals in their water supply to know what those chemicals are, how they will effect human beings, animals and plants, and to what degree they are making money off of other people’s suffering. The Holy Spirit indeed. GOD’S SPEED to the GULF, all of the people of the Bayou, the SEA TURTLES, DOLPHINS, WHALES, BROWN PELICANS and marsh lands therein…may creative intelligence trump the gas and oil industry soon. Have a blessed Sunday folks! Peace~M
