Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this wet and wild Tuesday morning, the seventeenth day of May, 2011, here in Osterville, a mere football toss from Hyannis Port, former home to the late, great thirty fifth President of the United States, Jack Kennedy, and his beautiful wife, Jackie. Soon, we will know who attempt to make an argument for himself, or herself, as a viable alternative to President Barack Obama, who has proven himself to be one of the great ones, and he is not even finished with his first term yet. As we watch the rodeo clowns fall off the wagon one by one, the republican wagon that is, with the likes of Donald Duck, “your fired”, Trump leading the way as predicted by Mr. Lawrence O’Donnell, host of “The Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell”, airing every week night at 8 p.m., EDT, only on MSNBC, who said on his shows over the course of the last few weeks, that as soon as NBC came out with their fall lineup, which they did yesterday, May 16th, the day Lawrence predicted “The Donald” would bow out, he did. Well done sir. Mike Huckabee, Huckawho gives a $hit, the over the top evangelical weirdo, to whom everyone thinks is such a great guy, I have my sincere doubts, bowed out after his FOX NEWS show ended, thankfully with no one getting seriously injured. There is the rest of the crew, whom I do not have the time to go into right now, save to say that Newt, ’she turned me into one’, Gingrich, and his crazy looking wife, don’t have a snow balls chance in hell of taking the nomination, leaving poor Mitt Romney in the driver’s seat with Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and possibly Mitch Daniels, the frightening Planned Parenthood slayer from Indiana, remaining as the “Last Man Standing”, a role that would be better suited for Bruce Willis than these panty waists, all three look as if a strong Northeasterly wind could blow them right over, taking out what’s left of their moral compass and basic human decency. For we all know what this upcoming election is really all about–a referendum on how many stupid people did the brain washers over at the various think tanks, such as the “Mackinaw Group”, get on board their crazy wagon? How many people drank the Kool Aid? Is it really worth all of that money that will be funneling in from the “construction sight over yonder” (credit the film classic Caddyshack) by way of the Citizens United case of 2009, where unlimited amounts of money can now be spent by corporations, who are now considered to be human beings, legally, thus, have a “voice”, that now, via the billions and billions of dollars advantage, drown out the voices of the common American citizen, to whom, these corporations see as numbers, consumers, not really “people” at all–kind of ironic, no? Yes, these companies of such high moral value will weigh whether or not they believe that their “man”, their main puppet, can win against the more middle of the road Obama, who, for the most part, is pro-business as evidenced by a rare decision of folly, to allow big oil to drill in the Gulf and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge with the same equipment that an independent Norwegian firm, by way of an exhaustive study, concluded that the blowout preventer, that caused some estimate 500 million barrels of crude oil, mixed with a deadly dispersant Corexit, to be spilled out into the Gulf of Mexico, causing untold yet damage to our environment, it’s people and mostly it’s animals, was not only to blame for the disaster, but concluded this equipment is not safe and a similar accident will happen again, for the blowout preventer does not work if the pressure gets too high, in fact, it fails in normal circumstances 50 percent of the time. However, the Obama administration, obviously being pushed by big oil, has now given out more permits, all under the guise that this will ease the pain at the pump, when any credible economist will tell you that it would take decades for it to reduce the price by even a few cents, and that this oil will be put on an international market, like all oil is now a days, and thus, will not ease prices at all, in fact, the only way to ease the prices is to take out the speculators on Wall Street out of the picture, but that won’t happen because, like the NRA, they too have a huge powerful lobby and thus, can do, say or act any way they wish. Well, at least some one is eating well at South Street Seaport. Have a great day folks and GOD’S SPEED to the roughly 25,000 people that are being flooded out via the levies on the Mississippi River in the state of Louisiana, your sacrifice is duly noted. Keep the FAITH. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
