Tough Guy

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:11 am

On a warm January morning here on Cape Cod, with temperatures expected to reach the 60 degree mark on the Fahrenheit scale, I wish you a good morning.  I feel like I have a hangover after watching all of the Sunday news programs, that I do religiously, but after viewing men like George Will, whom I used to respect and think of as an intellectual with some solid information to consider, I now feel sick to my stomach and I haven’t had alcohol in over five years.  Mr. Will, who you can now catch on the “Cartoon Network”, actually said this of the land mark decision to allow corporations to donate as much money as they wish to federal officials, thereby destroying the very fabric of democracy all, ironically, in the name of the first amendment.  His words, and I paraphrase, are essentially these… When asked what corporations would do now with such a low brow scheme, bribery for lack of a better term, he stated that it was more likely that organizations like THE SIERRA CLUB, would be the benefactors.  Not big oil, the insurance cartel, the big banks, power companies, defense contractors, and the casino royale on Wall Street…the Sierra Club would be the big “winners”, whose members eat rice, wear Birkenstocks and attend peace rallies all while attending to our crumbling environment.  The saddest thing about this is the fact that 90 percent of the people watching these shows would at least consider that to be a fact…when it is just another sophisticated talking point by a man, now by definition, who is in bed with the crazies like Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly.  The Sierra Club will issue a press conference later on this morning and will put forth a statement saying, “although we used to think George Will had some sense left in that small frame of his, we now know what a charlatan he truly is.  His words fall like acid rain and we don’t need his help in this epic battle for the survival of the United States of America, and planet earth for that matter.”  Or something to that effect.  Have a nice Monday!  Peace~ M
