White Steepled Church 2.0

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 Friday afternoon, the twenty first of October, 2011, sorry about that, I was–to quote ‘Carl Spackler’, assistant greens keeper at Bushwood Country Club, a character played to the ‘tee’, by the incomparable Bill Murray in the classic film made in a much simpler time, 1979, ‘Caddyshack’–unavoidably detained”.  The day is bright and brisk on Nantucket Sound, where I spent most of my morning, with billowing fair weather clouds above, and a tough northeasterly breeze coming off the waters, making it cooler than it would be otherwise.  It is Friday, and for many people in this country, that just means another day of worrying about paying the rent, keeping food on the table for their children, paying the electric bill, wondering if they are going to increase the class size at the local elementary school, yet again, and fed up trying to find a job in an economy that is not on their side, for it is a global piggy bank now, where the ‘winners’ and the losers are no longer stocks and bonds, rather, innocent civilians who are wondering exactly how much more they can GIVE to the ruling elite, a plutocratic charge, that is determined to poison this planet with the continuation of the ‘fracking’ process of fracturing shale rock with water to release the ‘natural gas’, via pouring 596 deadly chemicals into that rock that eventually makes it’s way into the drinking water in 37 states now, all UNREGULATED. As it continues acting as a pusher for big oil who, like most of the banking industry, along with some of the insurance industry, coal industry and a few others, keeps it’s addicts, ‘the American people’ hooked on energies that are not only unsustainable but will continue to push the climate to the point of no return.  The republicans will tell you that it’s all ‘the regulations’ that are killing jobs in America, NO!, that is a LIE, regulatory legislation and current law account for less than a percentage of ‘jobs lost’, a famous republican talking point, when, in actuality, it is the phenomenon of ‘free trade’, or Laissez-faire economics, wherein it is easier and cheaper for multinationals to set up shop in another country, say China, and pick from a vast, extremely cheap labor force that does not complain about child labor, horrible working conditions, and health risks, making up for 30 percent of the ‘jobs lost’ in this great land of OURS…  This is just one example of many, let me reiterate that, many, policies that do not have the interests of 99 percent of the ‘American People’ in mind, as they steal their collective wallets, then offering to help them look for something that is obviously not there, with, of course, a five dollar processing fee.  Keep on broadcasting those Madison Avenue commercials Bank of America, an ironic name if I have ever heard one… Have a nice week end folks and do yourself a favor and Google some of the REAL NEWS that is happening down at Zuccotti Park in New York City, where day 35 of “Occupy Wall Street”, now “Occupy, fill in the blank“, with it’s impact globally, is rewriting history as we are Currentv(ly) experiencing it, LIVE, in your face, from Paris to Peru, it is happening, a calling out on runaway corporate greed that is decimating our environment, our people, and our peace.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
