Papa Manyu.

The doorsteps to Papa Manyu's home.

Dear Uncle Sam,

               I greet you in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. It has been a long time that we have neither seen nor spoken. I hope all is well. I am doing well and making giant leaps. I wanted to tell you a story. Do you remember the man who followed me everywhere I went; they called him, Papa Manyu? Perhaps yes or perhaps no but I liked his biography.

He built a house that shared boundaries with four neighbors called Nigeria, Indian, Koupe Manegouba and Lebialem. The path to his house was a little hanging bridge that got muddy every rainy season and dusty every dry season. Everyone knew that he was smart. He had 4 very smart kids too called Upper Bayang, Mamfe Central, Eyumojock and Akwaya, but they lived in disarray with each other. The kids grew up and had their own kids, but they too were not in good terms with each other. They always fought and took one another to court. They planned the death of their brothers and sisters and divided all their houses. Rumors even had it that sometimes they will quarrel to a point where they will be afraid to live in their own house and had to live in neighbors’ homes. Finally, they became laughingstocks to their neighbors. It is not just how they fought each other that was absurd, it was the way they tried to reconcile with each other that was incongruous. Everytime they had schism, they called those who stoke the flames as the peacemakers until one day, I had a dream.

I saw that Hitler was asked to babysit the Jews, and Ariel Castro-a child molester was asked to adopt children. I asked the organizers. Why choose Hitler and Ariel Castro? They told me that Hitler loved the Jews so much so that he killed 6 millions in six years, so they can ask him to babysit them. They also said that Ariel Castor molested two girls for ten years, so he will be asked to babysit the kids of the neighborhood for his love for children. It is a great idea! I just knew that the babysitting will fail. I also had a dream that I bought some fresh, special groundnuts, but I did not want anyone to mess around with them. Consequently, I went and buried them in the ratmole's hole to protect them. That is the best way to preserve your kids and protect your groundnuts. I also saw a man who was always mad because he smoked banga (your children call it weed and the British call it cannabis), so the parents always gave him banga to cure him. The more they gave him banga, the madder he became to a point where they had to shackle him in a loony bin. No one (except them) understood why that was the best treatment,. After all their titles and Phds made them all sages. They always repeated the same solution that gave them bad results; meanwhile, they intended a better outcome that always eluded them

They all still think that nobility is bought in the market. Do you have any titles for sale? My cat too wants one. I am confused which one. Don’t ask me which one because I don’t know. Perhaps between doctor or sesekou. I heard that those titles will convert your puerile behavior to those of a sage. Once you have one of them, you will become an elder in the community. Every born house, baby shower, convention, wedding, or njangi meeting, you will be seated on high table.  Unfortunately, despite his children having those titles, their speeches and actions remained infantile. He that has once dwelled in the swamp can never forget the feel thereof.

Dear Uncle, as you can see, your nephew is getting wiser and wiser everyday, oh. I thank you for always being there in my life, though.


Until then, stay well.

Shanesha Taylor: A SAMPLE of AMERICAN DYSFUNTION


Simply put, most Americans are very dysfunctional, preferring a life of pomposity and Carpe diem. A very artificial and synthetic people whose good works are drummed mostly in the face of a camera. Listen to one of them, “As a working mother who has had issues finding child care, my heart goes out to Ms. Taylor.” These people live like the African golden cat which lives and dies alone. It is alleged that Shanesha Taylor was arrested for child endangerment because she left her kids in sweltering heat to attend an interview. Americans are alarmed that she was arrested, and they are raising money to help her. I guess with already $91,000 and more raised to support her, she can now support herself and her kids for the next 2 years. However, what about comrades in suffering who wear her very shoes but are in the media dustbin? Who raises money too for them? This act, albeit benevolent, does not even solve the problem; it merely shows how dysfunctional the society is. This is bad for society, bad for America and bad for the world.

There are bigger issues that Americans must face. Every sane society knows that it takes a village to raise up a child. How abrupt was her interview? Did Shanesha not know a relative, a friend or even a neighbor and no church in which she could drop her kids just for a day or talk less of a few hours? The excuse may be that she is homeless. If she had built a community, she would not have been homeless with two kids. If a man or woman is living like an island, then therein lies the dysfunction. 

Most of these women fight to keep kids mainly for child support, even if they are unable to cater for them. They also know that by keeping the kids, they can qualify for food stamps and other state provided amenities. It is more about themselves than the kids because in countries where there is no child support, mostly the men keep the kids. That is why no one should even ask about the father(s) of the kids. Like Kathleen Sidoniasked, “If she couldn't find a sitter for an interview, what exactly did she plan on doing with her children if she actually obtained the job??” Shanesha is not alone in exhibiting this dysfunction.

In July of 2013, Keri Engholm “left her 7-month-old daughter die after being accidentally left in a minivan while she rushed off to attend meetings.” ABC reported that Earlier that month, “a Southern California foster mother left a 3-year-old girl in a sport utility vehicle for 15 minutes and she died. In May, a Colorado woman left her 13-month-old son strapped in a baby seat while she went to work at a McDonald's. In March, a Texas woman returned to her car after a day at work at a shopping mall to find her 5-month-old son dead.” In January, 2014, Alicia D Brown “left her four-year-old child in a casino parking lot for eight hours.”

If she was a good person, she would not have lacked even a neighbor to keep her kids. Let us say that she did not have relatives around her. Doesn’t she have even a single friend? Doesn’t she have even a single neighbor? In a great society that functions well, a relative, former colleague, a friend, or a neighbor could sit with your kids. Nay, it cannot be because women like Tanesha will not even greet their neighbors. They do not create any platonic relationships. They are the type of women who do not even answer when their neighbors greet them. Nevertheless, the dysfunction does not end with her; it goes beyond.

The passersby who saw the kid crying probably knew that the woman was in one of those offices. In a normal society; I mean where everyone is caring and it takes a village to raise up a child, they will go to the front office and ask them to announce that the person whose kids are in the car should come and attend to them because they are crying. Oh, no, they feel unattached to her pain. Their first reaction is call the police because the monster of a woman has left her child in this scorching heat. These people are even kind enough. Others will take out their cellphones, take pictures and make videos and then place them on YouTube as funny videos of kids crying. Do you see how dysfunctional our society has become?

The police then arrested the mother for her wickedness. In a normal society where it takes a village to raise up a child, the police will look for the mother and then tell her to take the child back home and try to look into her situation. Paul said, “The letter of the law kills, but the spirit vivifies” (2 Cor 3:6). It is not for nothing that the nexus for adjudicating jurisprudence is equity. The police is a civil institution meant to protect society and not terrorize it. Everyone time and again could have a lapse in judgment and could also forget even their most prized possession. God himself acknowledges that even a suckling mother can forget her child (IS 49:15). Notwithstanding, the woman is already arrested.

In a normal society, the facts of the case do not show any negligence; they show a lack of shrewdness. Society should have been to reform and rehabilitate; instead we now live in a time when everyone wants to condemn and maim the other. Shouldn’t the prosecutors instead see how they could help her out of her situation rather than file charges? None of them knows how she feeds those children. Even people who did not care about her homelessness will be showing care because the camera is there. Some may argue that she is on food stamps. How much food stamps could actually help her and her kids? These are questions that a normal society should be asking.

Therefore, the solution to averting opprobrium like that of Shanesha is for people to build solid communities, by first building their families. I just don’t understand why so many Americans do not talk to their families. They spend more time on the internet and social media with fictional friends and families (like those found on Facebook) more than they do with their real families. If her relatives were talking to her, there would have been a solution. I have called people in other countries and other states to give lodging to someone in need because I had a relationship with those people. Americans, listen to me; to build a happy and strong society, we must build better families because a better family will build a better society.

Until then, that is my Pamplemouse for you; you can squeeze and drink or do with it as it pleases you.

IS Florence Igwacho Money Madam Or Medicaid Fraud Queen?


Florence Ngwe Igwacho's home.
On February 9, 2014, The FBI released information about more than 20 people who were arrested following investigations into widespread fraud in the DC Medicaid program. This scam was popular in DC that even nurses, I mean nurses were boasting of millions and 7 figures in yearly incomes. The news went viral in the Cameroonian community because the majority of those arrested were not just from Cameroon but from one province: the North West Province. People from the North West province are known for their garrulous sanctimony. Surprisingly, on that day, they were all deaf and dumb. Despite the people originating from mostly one province, their actions transcend the province, country and continent. There are immediately two camps. Those who believe that Florence Igwacho was right purloining the system, and those who think that she was wrong pilfering from the very system set up to help everyone, especially the sick and dying. This writer belongs to the group that believes that no matter how many people she helped, fraud is fraud; it does not become virtue simple because the perpetrator became a Good Samaritan. People like the writer who constantly write on these community vices are considered jealous. Some swamp dwellers (those who left their villages directly to Europe or America) take ghost names through which they spew out inconsequential tintinnabulations about the truth speakers.

Actually, it is not the first time that Cameroonians are operating in groups to defraud the Americans. A few years back, they orchestrated one of the highest bank heists. In 2012, the government broke a ring of RN and LPNs selling exam questions and even writing for each other. It was the same thing with  sham marriages and marriages for hire (but thy did not outdo the Ghanaians though) until it began catching up with everyone. May this send a warning shot to those in the pharmacy industry who are diluting medicine and selling expired medications or opening private pharmacies at home of samples and expired medications they got from the US.

You know something was wrong when a mere nurse is throwing money left and right, building duplexes and mansions, buying luxury vehicles at home and broad and donating huge amounts of money to supposed charities. Their presence in every party, meeting or beer parlor turns the floors green with dollars. They quickly rip titles like Madam Dollar, Mama Million or Money Madam (in the case of Florence Igwacho). The society extols the purloiners by creating a pedestal on which they place these swindlers atop everyone else. He or she becomes "l'enfant cheri" of the community. Whoever touches him/her, touches the apple of the eye of the community, especially those who benefit from their thievery. Those who support their acts boast and ask you how many houses you have built and how many bank accounts you own. No wonder Florence Igwacho, nicknamed Flo Diamond had 45 bank accounts, three names and three companies. It is alleged that the Cameroon Embassy in the US helped her to transfer her funds.

The FBI indictment is very simple: “she overbilled the government and at times billed for services that were not even provided”, used proxies and middle people to “recruit false patients”, “knowingly altering claim forms”, etc.

Florence Igwacho knew that by virtue of her being convicted in an earlier healthcare felony, and her license suspended, this law (18 U.S.C. Section 1347) prohibited her from continuing in that business. As it is common with crooks, she changed names to avert detection since she was already banned and prohibited from doing business with the name Florence Igwacho. At this time, she created the name Florence Bikundi and also Florence Ngwe. Her brother: Eric Igwacho once argued that she changed names because she got married (Camnet mail # 332102 of Feb 21, 2014). That would have been Florence Bikundi. When did she then start to use Ngwe as her last name? Eric also argued that she was unaware that her license was suspended because she did not receive any notifications? How could she serve imprisonment in 2003 and be unaware that she had been banned from healthcare? How did she answer the questions during the application, “have you ever been arrested, or has your license ever been suspended?” If she answered “yes”, she would not have had a license to operate even under Florence Bekundi or Florence Ngwe. Notwithstanding, we cannot just blame Florence Igwacho and leave the authorities of Maryland as innocent.

How did all these institutions like (CPI, OIG, HEAT & GSA) created to safeguard and protect the integrity and successful functioning of the healthcare programs miss this scam that was well known in the Cameroonian community? There is only one answer to that as stated in the bible, " Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous (Deut 16:19, Exodus 23:8; Eccl 20:29; Prov. 17:8).” They were so blinded that they allowed the scam to go on for so many years with impunity.

What surprises me is how immigrants think. This behavior is not different from illegal immigrants who want to turn the country into the same hellhole they were escaping from. It will be unjust for anyone to sit quiet simply because she is a Cameroonian and that she had sent a lot of money home to help kids and orphans. At the same time that she was sending money home, she was robbing the American kids (I mean every kid born here) of their future. If things like this keep going without detection, most of our kids will not even have the MEDICARE/ MEDICAID program, no matter the good intentions of the government because there will just not be any money anymore. If a broken system is so good, she should have gone to North Korea or even stayed back in Cameroon or Nigeria. Why does come here to ruin a system others risk their lives to visit?
Do you know how you guys used to boast that, " you only need to buy the patient a KFC bucket of chicken and he or she will sign your hours and you do not need to show up?" Now is the time to boast well. look, 99 days for the thief and one day for the owner. Most of you remember that most LPNs have three jobs and they don't even show up regularly in two of them. They show up sporadically with a bucket of KFC chicken. These Americans themselves too have a problem; you eat chicken and sign someone's timesheet that they have treated you for the entire month. What type of human being are you? Greed and gullibility are making Americans look very stupid every day to the outside world.

Africans will soon say that the government is targeting them. Do not listen to any of that in a one size fits all prejudice; there is no one size fits all adjudication here. You should read the FBI affidavits. As I pointed out in this article, the actions of these people will rightfully have a repercussion beyond just provincial lines. When I read healthcare workers claiming that the government was stupid to allow them purloin the state, one can tell you their mindsets. They think that they are doing it against America. Whether they are Americans or illegal immigrants, it does not matter. What can be ascertained is that if their devilry is left unchecked, it will destroy many people. The FBI is not just targeting people from African descent. Those accusations about these businesses are genuine. You and many others know that the community has been aware of this scam. The FBI has done raids on certain ethnic groups, including Jewish Gangs, Italian mafias and Chinese gangs. Just of recent after a quick sweep, the FBI arrested longtime California congressman Leland Yee on suspicion “of conspiracy to deal firearms and wire fraud.”

Cameroonians may blame Paul Biya for ruining the country and making them economic refugees, but he is totally absolved of their fraudulent behaviors. Anyone and everyone living in the US who supports her for defrauding the system is her indirect victim because when they become sick, MEDICAID  and MEDICARE will not be available for them since the ilks of Florence Igwacho have siphoned the coffers. This crime is against humanity, to say the least.

Until then, may the justice stay its course.

Who Killed Lapiro De Mbanga alias Ndinga Man?


‎Lapiro is dead and many are wondering what killed him. It is stated that he died of cancer. However, permit me to tell you that the cancer was just what the doctors declared as the cause of death. It is without a doubt that the slow puncture technique accelerated or even caused the carcinogens. His death began way back in 2008.

Lapiro De Mbanga was born Lambo Sanjo Pierre Roger. He went by the pseudonym Lapiro de Mbanga, but the people called him Ndinga Man. Meaning, the guitar man because he could play even the national anthem with his teeth. Karl Marx once said "It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.” Lapiro de Manga was a maelstrom to the regime and added impetus to that consciousness.

Lapiro once alleged that while at the Kondengui prison he became unconscious after a meal. You should remember that after the prisoner’s visitors bring the meal, they taste it in front of the guards, and then the prisoner is called to come and carry his or her meal. Who knows what happens from the time your visitor left and the time you come for the meal? He suspected that he had been poisoned by the use of a "slow puncture” which is very common in Africa. That is why Mboa Massock after returning from one of his kidnapping sessions became mad.


Do you know why kings, presidents and leaders hate freethinkers? King Ahab explained to Jehoshaphat why they do (I kings 22:8). Micaiah the prophet neither kowtowed nor adulated anyone. That is why Lapiro is dead. He did not sing to the tunes of King Biya, no matter how many appanages he bought or how many manacles he fettered on his ankles. For a time, Lapiro had gone with Biya and subsequently losing the support of the masses.  However, he quickly recovered when he found out that there is a way that seems good to a man but the end thereof is death. Any alliance with Paul Biya is death! Such death has overtaken SDF and all who were slow to realize that the government epitomizes evil itself. He told grand Katika for Ngola, “you bi mbout man. You nova born.” Grand Katika for Ngola did not like the "negiss" from Dinga Man.   


The government was too afraid of Dinga Man that they interwove bundles of fabrications on hearsay testimonies that sent him to prison for three years. Biya had already succeeded in incarcerating Lapiro De Mbanga, so there was no reason to refuse him treatment. Despite the fact that he fell sick in prison, the government not only refused to treat him, but they aggravated it with the slow puncture, what is commonly known as slow poison. It is that slow poison that will call his time on earth.

Francis schaeffer declares that, “Man is not a cog in a machine, he really can influence history." Lapiro did not allow Biya to make him one of its cogs in his repressive machines; he was bent at influencing history. Lapiro did not only change the musical landscape, he made it with the local color and gave a glimpse of hope to the katika dem for mboko, students and buyam sellam dem whom Biya had downtrodden.

Even after serving his jail time and living at the largesse of the American government that gave him asylum, the tugs of Biya drudged indefatigably on him like vultures to finish their good work. To tarnish his name and render his testimony void, they claimed that he was molesting his kids. Ndinga Man’s ex-wife will even be the mouthpiece through which this negiss and ndoutou would hit the airwaves. No one ever knew that Nero and Caligula will die. They burnt the martyrs on the stakes. Surprisingly, while on their pyres, the martyrs left with joy while their murderers remained to live misery on earth.

Dinga man had a simple philosophy, “mimba we”.  Through Lapiro, the base of the pyramid salivated to the goodies at the top.  Sadly, it is what the Yaoundé regime and most African presidents really lack. They hoard everything for themselves, their families, cronies and the masses’ turncoats. His moutumbou was to motivate all those who were in kan kan nangai. That is what irks the ilks of Biya and his cohorts. That would actually be the cause of his demise. He lived short but his act will live longer.

Lapiro De Mbanga had made himself the voice of the people that at times it was as if vox Lapiro was vox populi because the people knew that he wore their burdens on his soul. Dinga Man popularized the Pidgin for sauveteurs and everyone; even villagers from Eshimbi, Sabong Garri, Bot Makak or  the Fulani cattle rearers even walked à la manière de  Don Tara or Ndos  for Mboko as if they too were some Don Tara. Lapiro made the Pidgin language (that was a mixture or mélange of English, French, local languages, slangs and colloquialisms) cement its place as Cameroon’s most popular hybrid language. Now, Dinga man go nang, dame and sule any kind thing wey ye wanam because ye mandat for this grong dong bolle.

Lapiro was the looking glass that reflected the bad governance for the people to see since they have waxed their ears from the cries of the oppressed. The courts are his myrmidons, and the church fears to speak against King Biya. In 30 years, a two lane highway leads from Douala to Yaoundé.  Cameroon has constituted a senate of octogenarians who sleep more in the parliament than enact laws. How could Ndinga Man be silent? Even death does not silence the freedom fighter; actually its builds a stronger legacy. Lapiro goes leaving behind a conscience, a language, and a style that calls for conscience. Lapiro’s death like those of Bibi Ngota, Bate Besong all portray the Cameroon government as a sow that eats its piglets.

Hear ye my people, Paul Biya and his gang killed Bate Besong and his team, Bibi Ngota, Ateba Yene and now Lapiro de Mbanga. You all are aware of the number of students who were executed by the government apparatchiks. If you have a conscience, it is now time to use it and speak up wherever you are. Give Biya no rest and sing to the top of your voices that Biya has outlived his usefulness and must go. What type of country are we building; is it a country ruled by great grandfathers only? The legislature, the judiciary and the executive are all ruled by great grandfathers. Na waoh, man go see kan kan wanda for we pays. Adieu Ndinga Man. They have precipitated your departure. Albeit, you would have taken it anyway as it is the terminus of all mortals. All man wey di moto go meng one day. Sometimes, moto for grand katika dem di smell plenty for seka all  the fanfan things from Ngola wey dem di dame. Nango Mboko dem own di tangha da so. I know that your shit did not stink a lot like that of Biya.  I hope that all “complice” for Ndinga man now know who killed him. Na Repe Ndos for Ngola yi kill weah Ndinga Man. Adieu Ndinga man, “go befo, go befo, allez, allez allez; we dey for your back.”

Until then, adieu my comrade.

The Paradox of Feeding The Homeless.





During holidays the drumbeats of “feed the homeless” grow louder and louder and sometimes perish with the end of the holiday as the homeless after being fed, recede back to their homelessness. Even those whose brother or sister is homeless, talk about feeding the homeless. I was talking with a lady who told me that her brother was homeless and that she took him out for lunch twice a week. I am sure that Jesus was padding her on the back and head for the great show of kindness to the homeless brother. That was a great accomplishment for the wonderful sister. Feeding the homeless is a noble act because on the day of reckoning, only those who have kept the word of God will inherit the kingdom. The goats who disobeyed will be kept away from the sheep who obeyed (Mt 25:33-34). Albeit, it was a battle that was won and lost. In this passage (James 2:15-17), James is implying that while faith in Jesus assures the believer salvation, the faith thereof produces holy fruits (actions). That is converting the tenets into concrete actions on human beings. For example, how does that help a homeless person if we give him/her a dime and wish him/her well; meanwhile, we live in a mansion with our wife and child? How does that help them in their homelessness? Firstly, the dime will take them nowhere, and secondly, they are still going to have the grass as their bed and the sky for their roof.
Isaiah explained to the people in their attempt to please God with fasting that a true fast stop wicked ways, make life easy for people to live, free the oppressed, feed the hungry, take the homeless into your homes, clothe those with no clothes and stay in touch with your family. That will give you a great influence, it will increase your health, people will know about your righteousness and God will reward you with his glory. (IS 58:6-8). As a civil responsibility, God told the Israelites that if one of theirs became poor that he could no more pay his bills, they should assist him and also take him to their home. Nowadays we assist, but we leave the destitute outside and call them homeless (Lev 25:35-36). It is important to remember that anytime we show kindness to the poor, we are lending to God (Prov 19:17) who never defaults on his debts. I am amazed how the Master himself did not have somewhere “to lay his head (Mt 8:20)”, yet his disciples and followers have mansions and still feel as though they must hoard many more. How then do we expect to lay up our treasures in heaven if we cannot give to those in need?
Many fear taking homeless people because they erroneously think that they are “potential criminals” who could also rape their daughters or wives. First and foremost, the bible reads, “Jesus told his disciples that anyone who will lose his life for his sake will gain it back because there is nothing that will profit anyone if they were to gain the whole earth and lose their soul (Lk 9: 24-25; Lk 17:33; Mk 8: 35-36; Mt 16:25-26; Mt 10:39.). Either Jesus was a trickster or a mad man for repeating such falsehood or he was God and knew that he went to prepare a place beside his father so that where he was, his brethren should be there too. Perhaps we should remind everyone that his brethren are those who hear and do the things that the father has commanded (Mk 3:31-35; Mt 12:50). We are either the brethren of Jesus because we do the will of the father or we are not and we do our own will.
Secondly, the theory or belief that every homeless is a “potential criminal” is unsustainable because according to this theory then, every homeless person is a criminal and everyone with a home is a non-potential criminal. It is not every homeless person who is a criminal. Doesn't the bible say we should take in strangers in? Wasn’t God aware there will be all of these?
Thirdly, the theory will mean that all homeless people are only men. Homeless people are all men? What about the children who are homeless then? What about the women who are homeless? Oh, so all the women, children and men are all potential criminals because they are homeless? A few years back in 2000, while sharing bread at the park on Joseph Lowery St. on the park by the Asby train station in Atlanta, GA, a young man greeted me. He took his own bread and went and sat down. While I was ready to leave, he introduced himself to me as a homeless Cameroonian. I asked him why he was homeless, and he told me. I told him, “Brother George, (his name), we are going home to my house. People like David, Keisha, Orlando, Leyland and many others who knew George very well, can testify that he was a great neighbor to them, very handy, very kind and compassionate very creative who finally became a Tax Man. No child was molested and no woman was raped! Instead the street we shared bread together saw crime greatly reduced.
I once took six homeless people (three couples), but I am still alive. They lived with me for more than 6 months each and we never had a single evil incident. If they were a nuisance, they were to themselves and not to any other person. Just these examples peter out your theory of potential criminals. I wished these people you try to feed know how you look at them; "potential criminals". There are very few evil homeless people just like there are very many evil homebound people. That does not mean I have not incur a lost in keeping people. I had a lady come and steal 64 pairs of shoes, 24 laptops and numerous digital cameras I was to ship to Africa for business. Does that mean I should never take anyone home? Doesn’t the Bible say “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not? As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith (Gal 6:10).” If we do not want to be good to strangers, we at least have the brethren. How come Christians are homeless in America; a country that was founded by Christian pilgrims?  The same country where you can be slapped for not wishing people Merry Christmas.
Wasn’t God aware that putting his word into practice could cost us, even our lives? Therefore, that excuse is lame! Who says that all homeless people are from the kingdom of darkness? I read about a church adopting one church member per homeless. Don't those members and the pastor have families? The Bible says bring the stranger; it does not qualify the stranger as of the world or as of God. It is strange to hear Christians say that there is nowhere in the Bible where they adjured to take the homeless into their homes. Now, read these: "And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. 36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee." Lev 25:35-36. "Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward. “Is 58:6-8. James 2: 15-17. If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. “Your theory is very weak because you are more about your own interest than of the Lord. If you want to follow Christ, you must accept his cross. Isn't that what you post here daily? How then are you selecting which part and type of cross you are carrying? For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.  26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Mt 16:26-26)
If I will shun my door and home to homeless people because a few people came and robbed me, then I do agree with the men who say that women are gold diggers because a few women they dated siphoned their wealth away. Furthermore, others argue that no true child of will ever be homeless. If God does not leave his children homeless, why then are so many Christians homeless? Whose children are they? By espousing this theory, you indirectly endorse the theory that a Christian cannot be sick because God heals the sick.  Deeper, you mean that a child of God cannot be killed in a war, an accident nor could he even face famine. I am not sure the famine ravage Christians of Africa need to still believe in God then since they face hunger daily. Consequently, the whole of Ethiopia and many other famine ravaged areas are godless. I see why some of you do not preach to your neighbors in America, but are great evangelists trouping to Africa and Asia. When you even look at every homeless person as a potential criminal, you mean that everyone who has shelter is a good person; thus, establishing that the evil nature of people depends on their social status. The rich are righteous and the poor and godless. On the other hand, evil nature in humans does not depend on their abodes, color, education or any other status; the human being is inherently corrupt. We can be foolhardy with philosophies, but every human life should be sacred to us, no matter their social status. Therefore, it is wrong to live in empty houses while pretending to feed the homeless or alleviate the homeless of their homelessness.
Until then, all feed the homeless but also take them into your home.

"Do You Agree That The Ohio Teacher Should Be Suspended for His Remarks Towards The Student?"



An Ohio teacher (in an attempt to reply to a black student's overt desire to be a future president of the US) is accused of making a racist remark to the black student, " the country doesn't need another black president." I don't doubt a little bit that the teacher said what he said. Nevertheless, how is that tantamount to impropriety? Aren't we talking to high school kids? Aren't we teaching them diversity? Doesn't diversity include thinking differently? If the teacher said what he said, shouldn't the student retort with his own wit? Does an American lose his or her own rational because he or she became a teacher? It does not matter what time of the day or if it happened in the school zone or not. It does not change the fact that it was an opinion. Is the country now saying that by becoming a teacher one loses his or her First Amendment right of freedom of speech and religion? The courts have not established that one needs decency in voicing their opinions. In the restrictions that the courts established within Grayned v The City of Rockford, the teacher's opinions are not amongst. The society too concurs and has upheld the adage " truth is bitter, but it must be spoken" with utmost scrupulosity. The American teacher has an opinion and must have an opinion!


One would have thought that in the 21st Century, we will no more be reenacting the Athenian type of democracy where there was free speech to praise the rulers and no free speech to criticize them. Americans pretend that they have free speech, but they have none. I don't know a single teacher in Africa who has been disciplined for voicing his/her opinion to a student or in class. Their opinions are usually punished if they are against the president. That is where America is different and should uphold her status as an avant-garde to democracy. Where then does the light shine when the lighthouse itself is dark? Behold a beacon of hypocrisy. Not a single teacher in Asia or Latin America has been disciplined for voicing his/her opinions to students. You only hear that in America: the supposed land of the free, whatever that means.

What is really wrong with the man giving his opinion about the presidency of the first black president in America, even if it is negative?


It is as if the American student is an automaton who does not think; it must be controlled by the teacher and the school. If parents are afraid of the teachers and the school system, they should do two things: keep their kids at home or teach them well to be able to refute contrary opinions. How does a teacher saying to a black kid that they do not want another black president become racist? Aren't there black people saying the same thing? Africans sometimes joke that the Whiteman uses his own witchcraft to make discoveries, but the African uses his to kill people. Does that mean that the Africans are racists towards themselves? I know that many parents regard teaching nowadays as babysitting, but even babysitters have their opinions.


When I thought of being a teacher, my focus was to be a mentor and role model to the kids. However, how can anyone be a role model without having  a frank conversation? How can anyone influence thoughts and patterns if they cannot have an opinion of their own? I expected this from the third world countries and not in America; the so called land of the free. Students come now to class with the sole intention to tape their teachers and put it on YouTube or to take what they disagree to their parents and then all hell will break lose. For how long shall the US teach her children intolerance? In this particular case, the student should have defended why he would have been different from or better than Obama to quench the teacher's attacks. The parents and the authorities taking actions against the teacher: Gil Voigt defeat the student's education and show that he is not qualified to be the future president because he does not have the acumen to debate his opponents. Those who want to be president must debate their opponents, and it starts from high school too!




 Until then, I disagree with the actions of the parents and the school system.

Rachel Canning: A Sample Of The Entitlement Generation.

This is one of those cases of washing dirty family linens in public. This is not about over controlling parents; it is about an unruly child who thinks she is entitled to everything, even what she does not merit. If it was a soccer match, I would have loved to be the referee and see how well it goes. In which world are we living? Doesn't she qualify to be called a spoiled brat? She does not want to live by the rules of her parents, but she wants to enjoy the rights of being their child. You are either a child and obey instructions, or you are not and you disobey. The judge threw out her request for living expenses and legal fees. It is a catch 22 because the parents are the victims here. They will still pay for the legal fees. If they refuse to pay, the lawyers will pursue their daughter and at that time, the parents will intervene to bail her out in order to protect her credit score.
The three people at fault are Rachel Canning, her lawyer and the father of her boyfriend. It would seem when lawyers see money, even the most decent one loses every decency. How would a lawyer who is a parent accept to take such a case? Lawyers are like vultures; they circle around dead game. If not there is no reason why any reasonable lawyer or responsible lawyer and mother will accept to represent a wayward teenager; a child who has refused to obey the direction of the parents and had claimed emancipation. If she is free to suck from straws and offer her theobroma cacao to men out there, why can't she use the proceeds for her upkeep? 
Another culprit who is so responsible is the father of the boyfriend who funded the lawsuit. One would think that as parents, they will contact Rachel's parents to seek out mediation or reconciliation. Nay, instead they stoke the flames of family discord and let the Canning family glow to ashes. If the case was granted, it would have opened the floodgates from the Entitlement Generation on their baby Boomers parents. Sooner, Rachel and other spoiled brats of the Entitlement Generation will sue their parents to buy them the beds on which they bang their Johnnys. After that, she will seek another court judgment where the judge will order her parents to stand and see her  bump and grind her boyfriend to show them that she is not their property.
The Entitlement Generation does not want to do anything anymore. They are hoping to cash on the reserves of their parents. The parents should be careful because she has already shown them what type of deposits lay aground the seabed of her heart. We have seen kids collude with their boyfriends to kill their parents  when they object to the choice of lovers.  I have had people ask me if I took into consideration the parable of the prodigal son. It is the same Bible that tells parents to train a child the way he should grow (Prov 22:6). Rachel is still young and should be groomed before she becomes a monster. It is easier to make a monster, but it is impossible to tame it. Now is the taming period. By the way. love does not exempt discipline as even God disciplines those he loves (Prov 3:12; Heb 12:6). It is only a bastard who is not disciplined (Heb 12:8).
Compare the baby boomers with the Entitlement Generation; the baby boomers wanted freedom from God and the Entitlement Generation want freedom from parents. If she wanted money for college, the parents were ready for that. If she just wanted freedom, she would have just moved out quietly. Not being under the parents tutelage would have qualified her for financial aid. However, since she thinks that she can eat her cake and have it, she decided to sue them so that the judge will bully her parents to acquiesce and give her all that she wants; waywardness and the assess of her parents. I only hope that she is grateful to Sandra Fluke for convincing the government to build  a national slut machine where women can collect free contraceptives. 
From her behavior, it is likely that she will dump her parents into the nursing home once they get old just as many are doing now. If she was intelligent enough, she should have played nice and the windfall of her obedience will follow suite. On the contrary, paying for her bills while on her elopement was like paying for her rebellion. I hope the judge denies everything. I also hope that the parents drastically reduce her advantages. If she wants to live long and happy, she should obey and honor her parents because God's word does not lie. It says, " Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee." The disrespect to parents by the baby boomers is the reason this current generation lives in this predicament we are in right now.

I could not end without letting you all know that on Tuesday, march 18, 2014, Rachel canning dropped the suit against her parents. it is a noble act and a sign that she is on her way to repentance.
Until then, Rachel should repent of her sins and seek the trust of her parents. By her moving back to her parents and subsequently dropping, she throws the ball into her parents court. They must find out why their beloved daughter would turned against them in such a manner. Bitzer was a product of Grandrind and Bounderby and Sissy Jupe was his foil. Children could easily be products of their parents' philosophies.
