Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, breezy, comfortable island of Nantucket! Great as always to be with you, coming to you LIVE from the pleasant Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront(s), this 7th day of July, 2015, another stunning one here on this little sand bar created by the Last Great Ice Age some 11,500 years ago. A period in ‘time’ when man lived without Knowledge of anything much, save the fact he may be eaten soon by a Saber Tooted Tiger!
All these millennia later, one may ponder how far we have come? The opportunity for most in poverty to get out is limited at best, appallingly and depressingly impossible at worst. For if you combine the crumbling school systems in America in this early part of the 21st Century (starved for funding because of the failed “no child left behind” bill signed into law by then U.S. President George W. Bush), the horrible “food Products” we feed these ‘little people’ (chalk full of salt, fat and sugar, plus all the added ‘benefits’ of genetically modified organisms or GMO’s–“poisoning with a distinct and rather tasty pecan pesticide base!”–and the fact these children live in less than loving environments (neighborhoods rife with guns, violence, some problem police, gangs and quite frankly a feeling that the sky may be falling at any moment, yes, if one were to take all of those factors into the equation, one may be able to see just how tough it is for the working poor (especially the young ones, who did nothing to deserve this brand of policy doled out by men who could care less about the plight of 99 percent of the human race), to survive, let alone thrive and succeed in this life.
Eventually, this will all catch up to this new concept of a “New World Order”; whatever that is supposed to mean.
For a civilization, like a chain link fence, is only as strong as it’s weakest link. And by having the income gap, the epic Grand Canyon Gap, between those at the very top and half the U.S. population, well then Houston, you’ve got a problem!
As in what is transpiring in Greece today–the Money asking for more austerity from those who can least afford it, indeed attesting to wring blood from a stone–so too will this happen on these shores of the United States of America if we continue down this path of ‘profit over people’. It is already happening as multinational corporations who actually draft and push legislation these days in Washington D.C., continue to force ‘law makers’ on Capitol Hill–men they own because of the doomed SCOTUS 2010 decision, the folly of “Citizens United”–to cut the safety net for millions, leaving poor mothers to go to food pantries at the end of the month to feed their children. The $240 a month only goes so far for a family of three. You try it Congressman Ryan of Wisconsin!
We just love tough guys like you!
Have a great day everybody and if you really want to be what rock star David Bowie said in that classic tune, give of yourself. It is the only sure way to get out of that crazy head of yours! Ain’t that right (fill in the blank) GOP candidate for the President of the United States come 2016?
Of course that concept would go against everything old Paul Ryan (WI-R), knows and loves about his hero Ayn Rand! The poster child of this new, blood thirsty, greedy, and dare I say rather insane ‘not your grand father’s’ GOP. A hateful, Nazi-like philosophy of ‘leading’ a nation if I ever did see one!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
