Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Sunday morning, the twenty-sixth day of June, 2011, a misty, cool, foggy morning here on Cape and the island of Nantucket, as the Nantucket Film Festival winds down for yet another year of movie magic on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age… A quick shout out to my brother, my little brother, in the great state of Wyoming, Jackson, as it is his 37 birthday today--Happy Birthday Marcus! Well, the Sunday morning talk shows should once again reveal to US all the amount of wisdom, or lack therein, presented by our panel of pundits, politicians and patriots today, analyzing the state of our nation’s amazing lack of leadership, foresight, and integrity, as they seem to have forgotten why they are in public office to begin with. Take, for example, the debt ceiling. I have written extensively on this subject, and have yet to come up with a solution to educate the ‘American People’ as to the danger we all face if that debt ceiling is not raised. The republican party is playing a game of chicken that always ends with someone making some bad decisions with heavy machinery (the U.S. economy)–e.g. the classic film “Rebel Without a Cause”, starring the late, great James Dean, who watched his competitor drive his car off a cliff and onto the rocks below, exploding in a mighty fireball in the sea. That IS essentially what the likes of say, a Jim Demint, a republican Senator from the great state of South Carolina, said recently on a talk show, telling the interviewer that, and this is where he LIES to the ‘American People’, there would be no ill effects from not raising that ceiling, when every economist in the free world, worth his salt and not bought by the likes of David Koch of Koch Industries, would tell you that to not raise that ceiling would send the world economy into a tail spin, resulting in massive losses on many markets, freezing credit again, as in 2008, and bringing this already very fragile economy to a virtual standstill. This all while the republican party continues it’s march of inequality via the culture wars that are now on display for all the world to see, hear, taste, feel and SMELL. You see, it’s not enough that they have rigged the system to steal all the money via ‘privilege’ and status, no, they need to make sure that poor women can’t attain basic health care via the socialistic Planned Parenthood, just one example of many that reveal the insidious nature of this cultural battle line. For a group that claims to hate BIG government, they sure have a funny way of showing it. How many governments around the world monitor every pregnancy in their respective countries, banning birth control, abortion rights, and basic woman’s health care through successful programs like Planned Parenthood? It’s like that old ad for “tootsie pops” when they claimed, “how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop…the world may never know.” There is no rhyme or reason to their madness, other than the darker side of the human condition, GREED, coupled with intimidation, therefore, the old adage stands, “you just can’t argue with a crazy person.” One state got it right, regarding human rights, New York, as the Empire State passed a LAW, late of Friday night, that now allows same sex marriage–a milestone in this country’s ability to offer compassion and maybe even a little LOVE. For what difference could it possibly mean to anyone, other than the individuals who are simply celebrating their love for one another–and who doesn’t want more of that in this world? Have a nice day folks and, as always, please remember that wooden nickles, offered by the bright and shiny lights of FOX NEWS, hold no value whatsoever, save to be ‘reinvested’ on the hot air offered by that unfair and unbalanced television network. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
