9 Day 4

 

Man makes law and when it has a backing it becomes law of the land. Man feels a need to pursue a course of action in which his strength derives from numbers. Has truth anything to do with it?

A US Senator has blocked a resolution to formally recognise the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks during World War One as genocide. It passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 405 to 11 in October 2019. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said lawmakers should not “sugar-coat history or try to rewrite it”.

The resolution needed to be approved by both houses of Congress and then be signed by the president in order to be a law. Law can ignore the past as in the above case. But is it the truth?

At the animal farm once a question came up: which animal served Farmer Joe most? The cow said she gave milk and its goodness kept the farmer strong and healthy. The porker wallowing in mud said,’The cow only said part of the story. She makes bones of Joe strong but my meat makes his muscles ripple with goodness so he may work whole day, without tiring’. The goats added their story and said, ‘A good butt from my horns has made the boss exclaim,”When ever I want the Bank to increase my credit worthiness I can well thank you for showing how.”‘ The rooster added how he served the hens in the farmyard so Father Joe has everyday something to break up. “Besides egg story has not anyone here something better to tell?”the animals asked one another
A frog who came there asked,”Please will you decide our case?” At this point the mosquito also appeared, “Please settle our argument”
The animals did not know what to make of it all.
The frog said, “This mosquito s malaria case while my poison is instant death.”
Mosquito by name Xi said,”Give me a chance to prove it on Farmer Joe, He shall die the most horrible death slow agonizing death.” While Donny the frog said, “Novichok in Salisbury was nothing compared to what I got. No collusion, no dilution but pure evil”. They were both asking the animals a chance to practice on Farmer Joe.
Oh boy were the animals so enraged! This is how tariff war is played at the expense of the whole world.

Couple of days ago the news was something shocking as well as tragic: “Thirteen siblings ‘held captive’ by parents in Perris, California: ‘Deeply religious’ couple arrested on torture charges.”

An earlier news reported that all thirteen appeared to be children, so deputies were “shocked” to discover that seven of them are adults. Capt. Fellows of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said “If you can imagine being 17 years old and appearing to be a 10-year-old, being chained to a bed, being malnourished and the injuries associated with that — I would call that torture.” The biological parents, David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, have been arrested on charges of torture and child endangerment, authorities said.

Our conventional concept of family has taken a terrible beating and for any thinking person it must lead to soul searching. As a Christian it made me wonder: Is this what a couple deeply religious as reported in the press would do to their own flesh and blood?Deeply religious do sometimes equally bad as the Turpins did.  They will show by example how to keep a lie in circulation and yet be pillars of their Christian community. It is what their activism and evangelicalism would mean to others. Christ is merely a talking point but not believed or followed. Otherwise what is the point in castigating LGBT or abortion laws? What made you a judge, hypocrite, when God alone is the judge?

A family is a snapshot of the nation where the parents in a Christian home are as vital as the President of the nation. He has to set the highest example for others to note and follow. The case of the Turpins is all the more relevant considering the despicable standard the White House has set. Is this what a lie when conceived should look like? The President is the head of all, races ethnic groups rich or poor across the political spectrum; besides being the steward of the citizenry his ‘stable genius’ would lay in nurturing  the environment, health of the sea, rivers and natural resources.

Think of Noah in the ark, which was built according to the specifications God gave him. He also brought the creatures under his care. Think of nations as the ark and while it is negotiating its way across  every governor is to think of a safe haven and not to give postures of their preeminence over others. Suppose Noah or members of his family had created rift in the harmony enjoined on the whole by God what catastrophe it could have caused? Modern nations are no different. Man cannot quite bring it off by his selfishness or greed and expect peace among nations.

“Only one thing will work” in dealing with North Korea after years of talks with Pyongyang brought no results, US President Donald Trump has warned. Lord Acton said, “Power corrupts and Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” When one has so much power to change the world any sane person would want to change for the better. Has war ever cleared the air since the world began? Why war rhetorics when nations can talk normal like normal people no matter what.

When President Bush invaded Iraq in 2003, he was in so much hurry that he did not even want to wait for the UN to consider the matter thoroughly. A war never goes as one signs on the dotted lines. There shall be so many imponderables weight of which shall make even a win worse than before. Just at this moment FBI and all concerned agencies of the land are stymied over the motives of Stephen Paddock. Some fake news would give out a version while another make him a ‘closet Nazi’ and given to read Breitbart while closeted in his throne.  Here we have a media given a bad name so no matter how worse war goes in future or malfeasance of lawmakers is established, there shall always be doubt in what a citizen reads. Perhaps there is a method in madness of president and his men.

May be President Trump wants to give the ‘rocket man’ an offer he cannot refuse. Or maybe Trump wants to match Putin’s Crimean rhetoric in his own manner. Which ever way the nation as well as the Administration shall remain clueless.  As for the Las Vegas massacre may be Paddock’s ghost like Banquo’s ghost shall point his finger to the real culprit till then Putin laugh your heart out!

With bump-stocks he rocked.
