Whale Tail 2.0

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:55 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this Wednesday morning, the third day of November, 2011, another beautiful fall day on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age, with abundant, cool sunshine in the forecast all day, as the leaves here on Cape, are finally beginning to turn that golden, red, orange color that leaves this ‘time’ of year have a tendency to do…  This reporter took a day off yesterday from the crazy world of politics, a world, that if you don’t ‘think’ is crazy, than you, Sir, are the definition and poster child of that notion.  Like I said a few days ago, we will just let gravity take care of this republican train ride to the republican nomination for the Presidency of the United States, as the odds on (via an Irish gambling institution of the highest order) favorite is still, as it has been from the beginning, Willard, “corporations are people too”, Romney, who is trying to bend his ‘policies’ to the will of every tom, dick and harry on the neo-conservative wing of our political ’system’, not your grandfather’s ’system’, in this very fine nation of ours.  A nation that has some very serious problems that must be faced, not ignored, yes, truly tackling the problems–the definition of a REAL leader. The republicans wish to do just that, in a message is very clear and very, very, simple–1. eliminate all regulations, from environmental to banking.  ‘Number two’, eliminate the social safety net of Medicare and Medicaid, as well as the minimum wage. Three, privatize Social Security.  And finally, for that is all the ‘time’ we have for this horse$hit today, four–decrease corporate taxes or just eliminate them altogether (because regulators don’t have any ‘choppers’ any longer), while simultaneously making the George W. Bush (who visited Goldman Sachs headquarters in New York yesterday) tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 permanent, tax breaks that added 4.1 trillion to the national debt, more than all of the unpaid for wars under that same ex-President combined, wars that have gotten ‘US’ nowhere and further entrenched the already out of control ‘military industrial complex’, to the tune of say, 2 billion dollars a week in Afghanistan, while children all over this nation are going to bed hungry with even more suffering without health insurance at all, for those children are not part of that coveted 1 percent, ‘monied Americans’ (credit John Hodgman, sometimes of ‘The Daily Show, with John Stewart’), whose pockets are lined with the sacrifices of ALL of our ‘Forefathers’… for NO ONE in this country, or any other, gets ‘there’ on their own. (credit and good luck to Elizabeth Warren, soon to be the next Senator from the great state of Massachusetts!)  This ‘austerity for all’, with the fine print reading, ‘except for those whose incomes have a one, followed by at least seven 0’s; and a decimal point’, patterned after German Chancellor Merkel’s response to the Greek debt crisis, that WILL leave ever more people in hunger, isolation, fear and disillusionment, yes, this IS the REAL CULTURE WAR being waged by the global plutocrats and being called out as such on the streets of “Occupy Oakland” as I write these words, with a massive ‘general strike’ affecting the ports as well as the streets now, (but..what happens if “Mr. Howell, the third”, does not receive this scones from the U.K.?’)–as discouragement is the weapon of choice for these republican ‘young guns’ (I think I am going to throw up), just ask our pal from Wisconsin, republican congressman Paul Ryan, who wishes to cut 12 plus billion dollars from the U.S. Food Stamp program, offering a plan that would allow one to portion out the whopping $112. a month, barely enough, some would say, to survive on, with many more mothers saying NOT enough to survive on.  This all while he, congressman Paul Ryan, is obviously against eliminating the big oil subsidies, by way of the giant loop holes you could drive a Mack truck through the center of with plenty of room to spare, all 4 plus billion dollars worth, yes, old Paul and his pals would rather see the 45.3 million people filing for Food Stamps suffer some more, that’s right, 1 in 8 Americans, or 1 in 4 children, yes, Paul Ryan would like to cut more from an already Spartan menu for the ‘poor folk’ or ‘little people’ in this country of ours, while he and the rest of the puppet brigade on the right make out like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (don’t let it go to your head “”Mr. Young Gun, I use that reference to point out that you and your ‘friends on the hill’ are, in the end, only common thieves stealing from ‘the American People’), a group of brown nosing ‘yes men’ who bend, like our pal “Mitt”, bend to the WILL of the plutocratic interests, a tiny, tiny, tiny minority in this nation, as well as in every other major industrialized country in the world, where these greedy Feudal Lords take control of their various countries by virtue of corrupting the system that was set in place to stop the very thieves I speak of right here and right NOW! That is why “Occupy Wall Street”, that has, as we all know, gone viral around the globe, is so powerful, and the republicans KNOW it, for you can, again, in the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln, who was, after all, ironically in this day and age, a republican, ‘you can fool some of the people all of the time; you can fool all of the people some of the time…but, you cannot fool ALL of the PEOPLE, ALL of the time,’– words to ‘think’ about in the days, weeks, months, as well as years to come, for that is their marker, that is their game–DECEIT, all with a nice ‘Christian face’ on it.  “In God We Trust”? Are you people for real? Who do you ‘think’ God is?  You’re ‘God’, gentlemen, and I use that term loosely, is the manifestation of a collective egoic dream, an illusion most of your unfortunate sheep have bought into, as they continue to vote against their OWN best interests, yes, a collective egoic dream, handed down from on high, perhaps right here in Osterville, by the likes of ‘the Brother’s Koch’, polluters extraordinaire. Your ‘God’ will not redeem you in the end, for like the Bible parable says, you have built your ‘house’ on sand, that will be washed away in the coming storms, and in the end, for even though you believe ‘corporations are people too’, a ticket into Heaven cannot be ‘purchased’ via American Express, as that monetary symbol of this world will be as useless as the dust to which your deeds unto your own brothers and sisters will most assuredly be fated and be compared unto…  What deeds you may ask?  How about the new ‘voter ID laws’ that have been employed in over 30 states now, making it MUCH more difficult, some would say impossible, for minorities, young voters, older voters and those who truly have no voice, the ‘down and out’, to have their voices heard, the FUNDAMENTAL keystone to this great democracy, created only a short 237 years ago.  In the 2008 elections, then Senator Barack Obama carried the great state of Wisconsin by 414,818 votes.  Now compare that to what most experts would agree this new ‘voter ID law’s’ effects would be on those same voters in that same state, 445,000 real life citizens of that state!!  That’s right, it will effect over 445,000 people, real people, who lack the federal ID now required to pick the next leader of the free world.  Experts, like Reverend Al Sharpton, of “Politics Nation”, only on MSNBC, airing every week day at 6 p.m., EDT, say that the most extreme example would be African-American males, ages 18-24, where over 78 percent lack the proper ID, thus, would be barred from participating in our most important duty as informed citizens of this great democracy, democracy with that ’small letter d’…  This is how the republicans ’strategy’ plays out, right Karl?  For you see, the John Kasich’s (R-OH), the Rick Scott’s (R-FL), the Rick Snyder’s (R-MI), ah, the list goes on and on, ad infinitum, yes, all of these corporate appointed ‘Governors’ have followed suit with old Scott, “David Koch?, I don’t know any David Koch?”, Walker’s (R-WI) tough new voter SUPPRESION move, a concealed yet NOW transparent move to STEAL the election from the collective WILL of the true AMERICAN PEOPLE, a move, that WILL NOT STAND! So, today, just for fun, take a break from the NOISE of FIXED NEWS, or their legal name of Fox News, and check out “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, starring the incomparable Mr. Keith Olbermann, the Dean of modern day journalism, a statement I make with no hesitation or levity, for his show, only on CURRENT TV, is one of the only shows, if not the only one, that brings the real life heroes of this “Occupy” global movement into clear focus, showing the blood spilled on the streets, as in the Iraqi Vet who was hit in the head with a tear gas canister, leaving his unconscious and bleeding body in the streets, left, presumably, to die, not to mention the recent pepper spray incident that took place in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where those ‘brave’ police officers, took, again, the LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS, and literally ’sucker punched’ someone who was already handcuffed, by coming up behind them and putting a bottle of this wicked stuff an inch away from their face and ‘pulling the trigger’, blinding them with the burning chemical, all while handcuffed!, and then, going on air, as in the ‘police chief’ stating, ‘if they were ‘resisting arrest’ they would be pepper sprayed’… What planet are you from?  Those men were doing nothing, save NOT resisting, as you already had them in f&cking handcuffs you A$$HOLE!  Did I mention that Keith’s show, again, on Current TV, a real must watch (by the way, this ‘reporter’ does not get paid for saying this by any stretch of the imagination), airs every week night LIVE, the only way to see it, at 8 p.m. EDT?, with re-airs at 11 p.m., 2 a.m., 7 a.m., noon and three the next day.  This is history in the making, real life history happening right before OUR eyes and if you are not pumped up about it, you may want to check your pulse, because this next year is going to be the ride of this country’s young life!   Have a wonderful day folks and keep those wooden nickles offered up by the haters over at FOX NEWS at bay–they aren’t even wooden any longer, determining that the plastic from the leftover chemicals over at the Koch International Industrial poisons evil genius division, LLC, would suffice, as they have only half the poisons of the ‘fracking’ fluid used in the attainment of ‘natural gas’ (with Madison Avenue ads continuing to LIE about their SAFETY), yes, half!, only 280 deadly chemicals used in the manufacturing of said fake wooden nickles that are used to poison the minds of MOST republican leaning Americans and independents, Americans who have been duped time and time again by republican strategists like Karl Rove, Frank Luntz, or some clown from ‘The Heritage Foundation’, whose only goal is to sell you some more of his “Priceline” gold, the classic ‘Shell’ game of choice these days…  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
