Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Friday morning, the thirtieth day of September, 2011, an incredibly beautiful one out on the southern shores of this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age, as the temperatures are seasonable for this time of year, another Indian Summer day if you will, with gentle breezes, clear cool air above, caressing the changing leaves as one falls, then another, then another… Yes, I may be crazy to stop to take notice of the beauty that is all around me, but then again, I would be equally or perhaps more ‘crazy’ not to, would you not agree? I suppose we could go the other way and look at the cesspool Washington D.C. has become, as the puppets bow down to their glorious puppet masters who live and breathe the GREED that IS Wall Street. It is day 14 of the “Occupy Wall Street” protest that is not only taking place in New York City as we speak, but across this great land of ours, a true grass roots attempt to make some noise as to what has been going on in this country for the past thirty years, fifty really, but that might be a little too much history this early in the morning. Take the state of Massachusetts, my home state, for example. When Teddy Kennedy, God Bless his soul, left this world, his senate seat ended up going to a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a truck drivin’ “regular joe” kind of guy who proceeded to go directly to Wall Street and do their bidding, with his first goal being to strike down the regulatory directives put in place after the 2008 meltdown, namely the Frank-Dodd bill, a bill that would help to make sure that fiasco does not happen again, attempting to curb the reckless casino like games being played by an industry that offers nothing to the product side economy nor give back to our society at all, for they make nothing but money for the shareholders, the CEO’s and the top management, as they lay off, say, a third of their labor force to improve profit margins–you know, PROFIT OVER PEOPLE. Scott Brown, now a Senator for God’s sakes, has, in his coffers for the elections in 2012, over 10.2 million dollars, thus far!, and it is only September of 2011, while his competitor, the wonderful Harvard Law professor, Elizabeth Warren, who is a REAL champion of the people, as she attempted to become President Obama’s consumer protection director, but was shot down by, who else, the monkeys who call themselves ‘fiscal conservatives’, yes, that Elizabeth Warren, has, by contrast, only put together, what would have been quite a war chest in olden times, 917,000 smackeroonies. So, you can see why the Citizens United Supreme court decision of 2010, a decision that gave corporations the same rights as real people (well done Roberts, Thomas, Scalia and Alito! How was the trip to Vail? Say hi to David and Charles for me will ya?), while it allows corporations, foreign and domestic, to donate as much money as they like, without disclosure, via ’super pacs’ and such, throwing out the notion of fairness in elections, and thus, the whole concept of democracy, with a little ‘d’, altogether. This is the basis for the real culture war that is going down as I write these words. The powerful plutocrats that are on the verge of OWNING this country, God Forbid, it’s shredded and misinterpreted ‘Constitution’, along with it’s people in general, as they brainwash the minds, souls, and bodies for slave labor, can and must be stopped. For the MAJORITY of the American People are certainly, if they wake up to basic FACTS, not in favor of some rich man coming into their house to steal their wallet and then telling them that they have no idea where said wallet is, but would be happy to help them look for it provided they will pay a small processing fee of say, $25 dollars a bag, I mean wallet? The students, and now some major labor unions, such as the N.Y. Transit Authority, are the seeds that will spread across this great and blessed land of ours and begin the pendulum swinging back in the opposite direction–for blind greed, the lust for power and blood, the rampant hate, fear mongering and bloody assaults on innocent civilians, the racism, all of it, must come to an end, for we need to begin to feed one another, care for one another, be HUMAN to one another once again–FOR THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE. Most people ask that question from time to time, usually to oneself when we give ourselves a break from the madness that is this ever faster paced world that we can never seem to catch up with has seemingly become… The reason why we are here is to allow our souls to grow, and the way you grow as a human being is by giving, by forgiving, by loving. Hatred, war, greed, lust, all of those darker emotions do not have anything to do with peace, love, joy and a real FEELING of oneness with everything. Exclusion is the way to nowhere. Inclusion is reality and redemption. Have a nice day and week end and remember that wooden nickles are not meant for human consumption, right Shepard, “I come from a town full of secrets”, Smith, ‘you crazy little rag doll!’ (credit the cast and crew of SNL, September 24, 2011 LIVE show, skit depicting the republican candidates in a ‘debate’ hosted by FOX NEWS)… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS!
