A Reminder, Henry Higgins

Posted on Updated on

The Right is wrong and the Left is weak, but now we must all practice what we preach.  There is nothing patriotic about off shore drilling nor Christian in disposing of Environmentalists with ridiculing, and certainly nothing American about destroying natural resources, wildlife and the future of our children.  Stop self-delusions and political fights, for the enemy of America is the enemy of both Lefties and Rights.  BP, EXXON and International Corporations drain away our sense of purpose, pitching Red against Blue in Biblical proportions, while raping heartlessly our historical intentions.

Whether Genesis is factual literal history or poetic metaphor, it may be great parable for what’s beyond our earthly door.  Thus enlightened and empowered, we advance more clearly with antidotal symbolic illustration.  Believe it or not, it’s no stretch to see the “garden” as Earth and “Adam and Eve” as the human nation.  Crystal clear in the story is, somebody named God insisted on a few conditions in return for the rent free terrific view of aplenty. It was all there right before their eyes, everything we would ever need to live, love and survive. More than enough to provide for all that live upon this vast sphere suspended in the universal heavens: fish, mammal, insect, fowl, even human kind, all in perfect union with all provided with no depends.  However, there was a catch with the deal, we should practice not preach his spiel.  “Ah there’s the rub.” Responsibility and Accountability for Rain Forest & Arctic Ice, Everglades & marshes, shorelines & beaches, Eco food chain and the Gulf vice.  It’s all connected don’t you see, until Goliath corporations destroy the deep blue sea.

“No one can serve two masters,” Governor Bobby Jindal, “for you will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other.” You cannot serve both, the people of Louisiana and Corporate Greed that renders them asunder. “And I tell you this, that you must give an account on judgment day of every idle word you say.” How your head, Jindal, must spin, twirling all Americans in constant double take again caught in your truth reversal for the Right to win. Conservative attack on State of the Union with Big Brother Socialism charges, strike one. Next at bat, your corporate backers come ashore and dump on the daily bread of Louisianans ’til done.  Now you cry out from the wilderness of corporate crime, asking Big Government, can you spare a dime.

President inspects and accepts your bill, but then you swing and a miss with return to party line, “drill baby drill.” Strike three, for Louisiana citizens, wildlife and natural resources, drowning in the darkness of greedy corporate spill. This too is torturing, not unlike your GW brother in corporate cavorting, admitting to all that nasty water boarding. Investigation and prosecution should follow inflicting torture’s toll, “for what is a man profited, if he shall gain the world, and lose his own soul.” Whether destroying a nation’s reputation by sending its youth in harm’s way for oil wealth, or looking the other way when the wealth of oil destroys your state’s health, there is no honor to be found in slaves to Corporate stealth.

“Get rid of all malicious behavior and deceit,” with which political corporate puppets have infected Tea Party beat. “Don’t just pretend to be good! Be done with hypocrisy,” of Conservative heat. Rather than practicing what Bankstas preach, live what Nazareth mentor did teach:  “Beware of their hypocrisy. The time is coming when everything will be revealed; all that is secret will be made public. Whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be shouted from the housetops for all to hear!”

“If you want a happy life and good days, keep your tongue from speaking evil, and keep your lips from telling lies. Work hard at living in peace with others,” for “now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander and offensive language.” Turn the other cheek and you’ll see the Supreme connection with Corporate greed, then remove the oily residue from your eyes and give the “money changers” a much deserved surprise.
