When God's People Overcome A Bad Year.

Are there people fighting you? Are there situations in your life that have made you once or many times ponder on suicide? Are you fighting with a terminal disease? Perhaps you are struggling hard to divorce solitude. Are there people at work who hate you or neighbors who threaten you with death? Are there relatives that think you should have been dead or friends who are jealous of your success and plot against you? Today I bring you a message of hope and challenge.
You see; “… from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Mt 11:12). Today I want you to start the New Year with the determination not to let anyone or anything push you around. The recession is coming with a lot of bad news and many will be pushed over? Will you be standing or knocked out? I will narrate some Bible examples of people who did not allow bad situations and people to take life away from them. And you should not too!
Israel was in bondage for 400 years when Moses was sent to liberate them. When Pharaoh wanted to annihilate them God turned the seabed into a highway and the water as parapets to the Israelites. But that same water became a watery grave for the Egyptians. In 2009 God will convert your dangers into savers. Amen!
Is the country not going the way God wants? But you know you will not change it by being fearful and afraid. Rise up mighty soldier of valor and do what God is telling you now.
Let 2009 be a year when you rent young lions that roar at you and you eat from the same situations that first threatened you; consequently, turning your stumbling blocks into staircases.
No matter how wicked Ahab was it was Elijah who had the last laugh. Children of God will you shout alleluia? While Ahab prepared for battle by eating and drinking (in the flesh) Elijah prepared up Mount Carmel; like a woman giving birth (in the spirit). Indeed giving birth to a new beginning. Children of God the wickedness in 2009 will only be overcome by the spirit.
Your 2008 tormentor could have been like Goliath with all the armor but do not forget that little David defeated him. Goliath had almost all the physical armor mentioned in Ephesians 6: 10-18 but he lacked prayers and supplications. You will win because the battle is not by might nor by power but by the spirit of the Lord.
Listen: you suffered from racism and its collusions. Don’t worry; remember that Haman fell into the gallows he built for Mordecai. God will always deliver you from the snare of the fowler and noisome pestilence.
There are some of you whose greatest trials and temptations came from your own family, and that you seem like the enemy in the house. Oh well, remember Jehpthah who was driven away by his half brothers? But when they were attacked by the Philistines and then later the ammonites the Gileadites sought him as their general. So I tell you; dither not for there will be time when you will command their respect. The stone that the builders reject always ends up becoming the cornerstone.
Perhaps you are a student and mates are making fun of you. God will mock those who mock you; for they end up as shredded meat in the hands of bears. They have declared a war against God and not you because whoever touches you touches the apple of God’s eye.

Nowadays everyone seems to be a prophet of the Lord and they prophesy what people want to hear. Those that do not preach what the society wants to hear are labeled false prophets and false prophets acclaimed greats. That did not start today. Think of Zedekiah and Micaiah. Micaiah remained true to God only saying what God asked him to say and not what the people wanted to hear. When the time of reckoning came he was justified.
Perhaps some government authority is frightening you and you are ready to leave town. King Jeroboam may narrate his ordeal. The same hand they point at you shall paralyze and they will ask you to entreat the Lord your God for their recovery.
At times people just don’t like you and they accuse you for nothing especially in modern times that God is a burden to the society. When you make God your delight the fire of false accusation shall not consume you. Rather, your accusers’ will be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill as was the case with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego who were falsely accused before Nebuchadnezzar.
Other people just envy you because you are smart and do things better than them. Here is your consolation: even when you are cast into the den of lions like Daniel, the angel of the Lord shall shut the lions’ mouths, that they don’t hurt you: forasmuch as before Him innocency is found in you before the law. Your accusers will take the punishment they had conspired for you.
The Pharisees tried with Jesus but though they killed body he resurrected after three days and went to heaven where he will judge the living and the dead. The power in you cannot be bought with money. That is why you should consider yourself great. Those who try to prevent you from spreading the word end up as blind Barjesus.
Is the Bible still true? Has it changed? Don’t you read that the same God yesterday is the same today and the same forevermore? Every little situation has beaten you up and every little difficulty has given you depression. Are you a Christian? Is God still carrying your burdens or you are casting them on yourself. You were beaten in 2008 because you did not put your full armor of God. I say put on the whole armor of God. Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the enemies whom ye have seen in 2008 ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
Until then make the Lord your delight and 2009 will be under your control.

“Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Pastors”

I borrowed this title from the youtube video above. This message seems paradoxical but again that is because the majority has failed to reconcile their services at home and the one to the public. A pastor's family is his first church and the public church second. He should make a schedule where his wife has one copy and follows it. It is so sad to see the high rate of divorce amongst pastors and missionaries. So if they cannot even keep their own homes why should they pretend to take care of the flock of God?

The church too has contributed to this situation. Christians who are always dwarfs; never growing; always calling the pastor for every little thing.

I remember a lady who told us that a wizard was crying on her roof. I asked her to pray and take control over it but she came back that she has done so. I sent her back again and she told us the wizard keeps crying and frightening them from sleeping. I asked her to gather her family and pray. But even at midnight she will send the child to come and tell me that the witch or wizard was still crying. I asked her if while someone is there the cries persisted. She said: yes. I told her when next you hear the demon crying call me and I will run there.

One night again she sent her little girl and I went there only to find out that it was an owl. Owls are considered witches or wizards in most places in Africa. I went there, took a stone, prayed, and shot at the direction of the owl. It went and never came back.

If I did not go there I will be a very bad pastor who does not care at all. But all she needed to do was to shoot at the owl. I will be a terrible man who is there for himself and not for the people of God. Men of God fearing that stigma try to please the Christians and forget their families who are Christians too. Doesn’t the Bible say love your neighbor as yourself? It means you should first love yourself before your neighbor. If you cannot love yourself how can you love people outside?

The pastor is praying with other people outside but he does not pray with his family at home. Do you wonder why he has those many problems at home? Do you wonder why pastors’ wives like Mary Winkler shoot and kill their sleeping pastor husband on the back?

Here is the philosophy I have adopted; if the people who live with me or interact with me daily cannot say I am a Christian then probably I am not. I know the prophet is never great in his home town but those living with you must know that you are a Christian because those Christian fruits will never hide.

Pastors must rise to the occasion. Some of the worst; and very worst kids I have seen in churches are the kids of pastors. Doesn’t the bible say: “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Prov 22:6)? So why should the child of the pastor even commit suicide while his father is teaching people on how to have life in abundance. No one commits suicide because they are happy with life.

Indeed pastors are not perfect beings but they have taken upon themselves to live a life of probity and decorum. They have declared themselves the moral compasses of the society. In other words, they are saying: be my imitators as I am the imitator of Christ. They will have detractors for even angels have haters. But when the sheep are separated from the goats they can stand as true shepherds. Every Christian should be able to emulate the life of Christ through that of their pastor. But if the pastor does not even have time to go to the park and play with the family; leaves her waiting and whining after church services that he is attending to the Christians and abandons the kids for the Christians to raise them up then there is a total disconnect from the responsibility of the pastor. In the scenario I will say: “Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Pastors”.

Until then, I wish all the laborers of Christ a wonderful 2009.

Good Samaritans Needed for 2009 and Beyond

These are just some videos for you to watch if peradventure they will awaken the spirit of a Good Samaritan in you.
In the first video, a woman falls in the hospital that was supposed to give care, she is abandoned and died.
In the second, a man is hit by a car as he tries to cross the road. The driver runs away and passersby and other motorists pass his motionless body with disdain.
In the third, cheerleaders cheer evil, and gang beat another teen unto unconsciousness.
Should this be of the world in which we live? Where are the Good Samaritans gone to? This is an appeal for Good Samaritans for 2009 and beyond. Would you answer the call of duty? Whether you are a Christian or not, you should show care each time you see a fellow human being needing help. Look at these videos carefully and see if you treat people right. You do not need to go to church! I mean; just being a Good Samaritan.
Until then, may your 2009 be filled with Christ and his spirit of loving God and loving your neighbor as yourself.

Does God Like Beautiful People?

I have sat in churches and heard preachers tell their congregations: “we all are rich; there is no poor in our midst.” Deep in me I know they are telling lies because even God affirms that some people are poor (Prov 10:15) and that those poor people will always be with us (Jn 12:8). The other day a lady berated us for saying that: “every man’s gift on earth should be a beautiful woman.” She explained to us that "every woman and every person is beautiful. By the way, God does not even know if there is such a thing as beauty and how will he like beautiful people because He looks but the heart." So do you think God likes beautiful people? Maybe I should ask you: does God like beauty at all?

It behooves all to know that God likes beauty that he ordered Aaron’s garments to be made for beauty and for glory (Ex 28:2). The Bible says we shall see the king in his beauty (Is 33:17). So if beauty is bad why would God allow the redeemed to see the king in that state? Absalom was noted for his beauty (2 Sam 14:25). Esther got the attention of the king because they paraded her beauty before him (Esther 1:11) just like we have the beauty pageants nowadays. Indeed, with this verse, we know that there are some women who are not fair to be looked upon. In other words; they are ugly. Take it or leave it: some people are ugly. That is; God wants dual beauty: in and out. Humans mostly look at the one without; the source of our failures.

Take the comparison between Leah and Rachel. The Bible says Rachel was beautiful while Leah was tender eyed (Gen 29:17). There are some women that you look and then you look again as if you missed her the first time because she is beautiful. If God so hate beauty, why would he advice the Israelites to keep the beautiful women they captured in war (Deut 21:11)?

Undeniably, ugly women make their beauty contests in their showers or bedrooms. They do their catwalk in the shower like I do my singing, and it is only good for us because that is the best place to show off to avert ridicule. It is the same like weak men showcasing their strength in front of their mirror or children. You should acknowledge that you are ugly and make it up with good character, so that that which you missed outside is recovered inside, and when people come near you, they can say that you are a beautiful person.
The most astonishing thing in it all is that beautiful women always fall in love with criminals or simpletons like Nabal and Abigail (I Sam 25:3).

Therefore, if you are not physically beautiful, you should make it up with beauty within. I wonder sometimes why ugly people are mean too. Outside, they are not beautiful, and inside, they are not. Is that a curse? Then other times you see a beautiful lady with very bad manners; really bad that no sane man wants her. All she gets are either sperm donors or baby daddies. I know you know many of them. Every ugly man should get a beautiful woman to compensate for that which God did not give him, and every beautiful woman should get a nice man to reconcile that which she lacks. My colleague: Franco always tells me that in most cases when an ugly man marries a beautiful girl, they get beautiful babies, but if an ugly man marries an ugly woman, they get monsters.

Sometimes when two beautiful people marry, they never last long because they are not grateful for having each other. It is the same like why most marriages between the rich never last long. Most marriages between beautiful people never last long too. If one person is beautiful and the other is not too beautiful, the not too beautiful thanks God for the gift and compensates with his or her behavior. So definitely God should like beautiful people too if they can produce a mixture between the outward and inward beauty.
But know that, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and every man‘s lover is beautiful in his eyes and every woman’s man is handsome in her eyes. Although the overall consensus is that not every woman is beautiful and not every man is handsome.

Nonetheless, whether you are beautiful or not, God loves you for who you are and not what you are. God loves his image He has put inside you. There is a common ending for both the beautiful and the ugly. All die! The beauty queen would not pass their day of death to the ugly queen neither would the ugly king be made to die in the place of the handsome king. Both the ugly man and the handsome man sit on the toilet and both the water of the beauty princess and that of the ugly princess quenches the fire. Some ugly waters have been known to even quench fires better! You smile; don’t you? I know you do! Get out of here.
However, God primes inner beauty more than outward beauty because the latter is vain (Prov 31:30).

Until then, God loves everyone!

Beauty Without Brain?

Perhaps just that stupidity and greed always outweigh beauty. Maybe beauty queens are unaware that money does not always translate to responsibilities. This is one of those cases where vaulting ambition overleaps our brain and throws us on the side of foolishness. I am not a very good singer, but there is a song I like to sing to my female students:

Why do beautiful girls like crazy boys?
Why do beautiful girls like criminals?
Why do beautiful girls like drug dealers?
Why do beautiful girls like stupid men?

As I am traveling around
I see a very beautiful girl
When I enquire whose is that?
They tell me the drug dealer in town.


So can anyone tell me why do beautiful girls like crazy boys?


You sit in class and you see your smartest student
Mr. Ayuk do you want to talk to my boyfriend,
Looking at him; he is a train wreck in the making.
Her grades will start to drop and
Her truancy overshadows her attendance


Here is Miss Sinaloa 2008: Laura Zuniga with all the advantages of a Miss that she should have exploited. She is there for quick cash; dating the brother of a drug dealer. She claims that she was just in the truck with them. Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are. Even if she is not guilty, what is she even doing with people like that? Look at the news, beautiful girls always with stupid people and then boom divorce. Her life will never be the same. Thank God she is just 23 she may pick up the broken pieces and start at fresh. Select your friends and know with whom you walk.

Until then, I wish her well.

New Year Wishes

The year will be coming to an end and everyone remembers 2008. It was a year with many dark series that reached the paroxysm with collapsed of Wall Street and the financial power houses. The world economies took a tumble and jobs visited the Pacific Ocean for good. You were not at Wall Street but you know or heard of someone close who lost a job. You are not homebound but know someone who is. The bills have given you sleepless nights and made you run away from supposed creditors. Love deserted you by the finger and it still stays an enigma why you cannot find lasting love. Deep in you, you wonder if you are cursed and think perhaps there is something you were not doing right. See, you will soon tear another calendar and for a lady there is Men o Pause or call it menopause while the men soon realize their equipments are not operating as they should and the doctors call it ED. The future is very bleak; I mean really gloomy.
Wars here and terrorists attacks there; dictators here and revolutions there and somewhere here someone is crying for losing all they had and somewhere there someone is weeping for losing power. Indeed cries nowadays surpass laughs and the future may even augur a gloomier omen. Perhaps it is high time to seek refuge somewhere. Both young and old are now deep down into the fetters of drug addition that it is now a hobby and not a deviation. Crime is now a tool in the survival kit for all ages.
While some people have a wish list of material things others silently cry for help for their souls. The Hollywood stars have shown us that material things do not make us happy. As you know despite all their wealth one thing: true love, has eluded most. That is top of their New Year wish List.
Young girls and boys are running into prostitution and scammers are perfecting their skills. Never in the history of this country and the world has life been so precarious especially for those who have lost their retirement benefits and for an individualistic society like ours. Then the cost of healthcare does not seem to abate anytime soon neither does sickness thinks of giving us a break. Good health seems to be in abeyance and obesity stairs a once skinny kid on the bed. Boy; the future really looks bleak.
Perhaps you will soon enter the New-Year and no one knows what will happen. Many went to sleep but never woke up and many more will follow the same pattern before January 2009. You are the privileged one; indeed privileged reading me now. What have you done to be living until today? What is really special about you?
You have not had everything you wanted but at least you are happy having one more year. The future is very bleak as you can tell with all the gloom overshadowing world economies. But look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. If you are knocked down don’t remain on the floor to be knocked out, beat the bell as you look into the future with hope and anticipation. This God we serve walks with a pace unfamiliar to men but it is sure and steady leading you unto a good port. Fret not when you see your friends and others you know acquiring wealth for that does not mean they are happy. They may be laughing without but weeping within; desiring they were instead like you. See, you have a lot of potentials and the sky indeed should be your limit if you do not derail. Only cowards usually give up in life and ligate themselves to destinies which are not theirs for fear the future casts them down.
Dear, if you seek God first; all other things will be added unto you and by the time another year comes up your joy will be full. Pray that you will not experience premature death and that you will not loose anyone to drug addition. Pray that your joy will always be full despite the worries around. Pray that God will give you a health of steel. Pray that rather than see a gloomy future you see one of hope and anticipation. All of this ask in the Name of Jesus the reason for this Christmas celebration.

Until then, may you live long and happy!

Christmas Reminds of the fruits of Christ.

When I visited Blairsville, Georgia two weeks or so ago I went to visit the rustic part of town. Then I looked at the lake it was without end. As I peered more I saw how great God is. God has revealed his greatness even more in that while we were sinners he gave his son Jesus to die for us. But then we were on earth and he must be born. Then an angel appeared to a virgin Mary to tell her she will conceived by the power of the Holy Ghost and will born a child whose name will be called Jesus. Then Jesus was born in a manger wrapped in swaddles. After his birth three magi visited him to pay homage as the King of kings and Lord of lords. Since his birth a day has been generally celebrated to commemorate his coming for the soul of humanity.
The question today will be why are we celebrating if we still live as if there was no salvation? Rather than look at it as Christmas it is considered Christmall when people shop and shop. I did shop too but as I shopped I gave gifts to especially those who cannot afford them. Christ would remember those who do not have. Who have you remembered?
But then in the world in which we live today the best gift we can give each other is to treat them right. A child was put on timeout in my classroom. I asked how old she was, she told me she was 17 and will be 18 next year. I said: "oh you are even a grown up woman. So what do you want to do with your life"? She said: "I want to be a lawyer or a dancer". So I said: "you seem to be bored; that is why you are constantly misbehaving. I want you to start writing the things that amuse you or you don’t like or perhaps the foolish things that people do. That way you will not be bored". She told me she was a writer and gave me one of her articles about herself. As I read it, it was evident she was a byproduct of a broken home and love has eluded her that she is now seeking that attention in school.
Then she looked at my wall and saw a Bible verse with that of Shakespeare. And she asked me why I have it there. I said that it is because I am Christian. “It is pretty obvious you are one; you are too nice” she retorted. But isn’t it against the law she followed up. I said first the law does not prohibit me from exercising my faith and secondly the Bible is a work of art. If I can quote Shakespeare then I can quote it too. So I said: “what about you”. She said oh I am a Christian and we go to church and attend the choir. I told her that until she told me now I never ever thought she had seen the four walls of a church. She got offended and told me she does not like when people judge her and that she will want us to change the topic.
When people look at you during these few days can they even associate you with Christ? A car stood in the middle of the road with double trafficators. I glanced through my tainted windows and saw a disheveled and bewildered young woman sitting inside. As I passed her, my conscience began judging me: “oh Christian; if it was Christ who was stuck there, will you pass”. So I went and made a U-Turn, parked my car by the road side and came out to push her car off the road. "We will have to do that when the light is red" I told her. So the light turned red and I tried to push the Toyota Sedan off the road. It was too heavy for me. So the light turned green again before I could push her off the road. Cars rumbled towards me and then stopped. Surprisingly they stood looking at me; waiting for me to struggle and get the car off the road. Finally another Good Samaritan stepped out of his car to give me a boost. As I looked at the car that was honking at us it had a Christian sticker.
I guess Christ was well honored that they sat in their cars and saw another person struggling by the road side to help a woman in trouble. Christmas should not be a time for shopping only but that whatever we do, we should remember why the day is celebrated. That day is a day to commemorate the coming of the Lord to save us from our iniquities and not just a time to shop. Let our shopping go with our good works.

Until then, let Christ be the center of Christmas.

If Kids in America and the West will leave the TV, Video games and computer and start to play outside, then 50% of Obesity is slashed away.

I was almost losing my Bassa skills. Lord I need a tune up. It was nice hearing the musician sing in Bassa again. Furthermore, what great art.

While expatriates are going to Africa to redeem the place, Africans are running away from their home to work slavery overseas. This video reminds me of my trips to Ngwagwanda, Hegba, Liseh, Maganga, Ebolowa, and all those central and south provinces villages we visited.

“Academic Achievements: Passport to Success in Life?”

This article is in reaction to Dr Mbua’s article “Academic Achievements: Passport to Success in Life?” An academic achievement means that an individual went to school and obtained some certificates. Apparently by just acquiring those certificates it could be termed success already because not everyone who goes to school obtains certificates. Yet the objective of education was not only for certificates; it was to acquire knowledge that benefits the individual to integrate the society and be productive in their community. That then may insert the question: can an individual be educated but unsuccessful? Can an individual be uneducated but successful because they still acquire a higher level of knowledge? In other words one could be educated or uneducated but still possess a higher level of knowledge. That is what we call giftedness.
Giftedness is the ability to perform a task or demonstrate intelligence in an exceptional manner above one’s peers and surroundings. This may not have anything to do with going to college or obtaining a graduate degree. The term is losing ground because of the following reasons: there are many detractors than supporters, the mulish decisions by schools to still use the IQ method of finding gifted students and the inclusion of student behavior as part of giftedness.
There is a distinction between gifts and talents. These two do not depend on the amount of education an individual possesses. That perhaps may mean that one could still be educated but a failure while the other could be illiterate but very successful. I lodged Dr Brown for close to a year for free but he had a PhD in Mathematics. He could not keep a job because he was a drug addict. Would you consider him a success simply because he has a PhD? The first thing is that, there is a fine line between the two because both are meant for the benefit of the society. The major difference is that everybody has a talent but when the talent goes beyond human expectation and operation it is called giftedness. That means gifts start where talents end. The distinction is made because without it being made it would not be possible for us to acknowledge those who are gifted.
The concept of fixed intelligence contrasts the concept of integrated developmental intelligence. The former is intelligence not subject to change while the latter is the one which is gathered from surroundings. That means; the former is innate and the latter is acquired.
Plato believed that ideas are abstract and only exist when they become forms. The power of thought is stronger than the power of language for those with thoughts have knowledge while those with language have words. While education is a threshold to success it is not synonymous to success itself for knowledge must be transformed into virtue to benefit the society. That is why the Bible says: “though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal” (I Cor 13:1).
That means, you may embellish and garnish your language with Shakespearean diction, sing poetry in the words of Wordsworth, talk grammar like Noam Chomsky but if those words cannot be productive to help you and the society, then they are mere pretensions; summed up as total tarradiddles. Those who can upgrade their knowledge to be active become potentates of the society. That is why there is a difference between those who go to the university as a place and acquire grades with those who attended a cosmological university for Knowledge. Though the latter comes back with grades but ideas become the crux of his existence. The former measures all not by ideas but the certificate they have acquired which if invisible portrays an empty human can parading the streets of mankind.
Those with ideas cannot be contained in a censorship box because what they have is universal and flies above those who chase them around. As we look at the world and those who transformed them, they were not PhD holders yet though they are dead, their ideas have stood the test of time. They have been immortalized by what they said to the society. From Karl Marx to Cal Jung, Freud to Darwin, and Poe to Shakespeare we realize knowledge must be transformed to some concrete work that benefits the individual and society for that individual to be considered educated and successful. If you have the world’s knowledge but that neither benefits you nor the society then you are not successful.

Until then, knowledge must be transformed into concrete acts to be considered knowledge.

Bridgette Hager

I met her in Cuernavaca Mexico
Three Girls my friends and I saw
Don’t they look cute?
I muttered in my heart but my lips betrayed me
The other three in unison agreed.

To chat with them we bargained.
Her life in a vision was open book
Smiles without but sadness within.
Her heart dripping with tears
Lonely in a group like an owl.

Approached though confused her lover.
Friends reechoed she loved me
But differently I felt and believed.
Sadness enthroned deep in her heart.
She later told me she lost a boyfriend.

It was strange how I was so close to her
Though she was too distant from me
Her love burnt my heart like brimstone
Attempting to win her love mistakes I did.
Mistakes I confessed so God washed me.

Many times she was indifferent to me
Many times she lit the flames in my thoughts
With calculated words that gave me hope.
Should I keep running as days passed by?
My pride espy other overtures

A still voice beckons my persistence
I was off the mark and needed a U-Turn.
Mother said: I was the finest young man
If she doesn’t love me it was her loss.
Then I was excited to run after her again.

Within she was the best of God’s rewards
For foregoing my youth for Him
The best amongst all I have flirted with
She was always beautiful in my eyes and heart.
I laid in my bed and embraced my pillow

Oh, I love her, I confessed to my room.
Get up and send her an instant message
Which I will be pretty lucky if she replied.
At and after parties I met other princesses
Yet her love rang the bell regularly in mine.

Studies I did, studies I received to win her love
Yet the more I tried the more I estranged her
She ran further into the woods and the street
Fearing wolves prey on her innocent soul
On my knees I went down calling on God

Question: when would her heart alight?

I fantasize when she will sleep in front of me
On her left side of her beautiful body
On her right lactiferous duct placed my arm
That I squeezed and gently whispered:
Brige, I love you and my love is great for you.

I sent instant messages and emails
So she may tell me: write me no more
Call me no more; for you are not my type.
But the more I wrote the more she was quiet
When I wrote not she sent a little instant message

It sparked the fire again in my heart
I feel a sweet torment as never before
As if she made up her mind to torment me.
She knows I love her and always loved her
There was nothing to hide from her

She acquired the code to my private life
Still reads but does not answer my fantasy
She looks like she is part of my living and being
Still I could not unscramble her code
Perhaps all codes can’t be decipher

My poems reverberated her name
In the classroom as I teach
She was the face on every child
The wind whistled her name
Trees danced her music as I drive by

The plane sang as I gazed at the skies
In my dreams and visions I have seen her.
I saw her face in the palms of my hands.
To the last hour of my life she will always be there
I fantasize taking her forehead for a kiss

She looks and moves away as though saying
I love you but I am chained please free me.
I have always wondered though
Is there something in her heart for me at all?
Why does she remain stone cold towards me?

She is neither mean to me nor attracted to me
When I saw her the first day
Love’s mirror that reflected unto my face
She made my heart leap but I did not make hers
I could bear her sorrows and chagrins together

But the more I promised the more she absconded
As though I was a vampire desiring to suck her blood.
But mom confessed I would make a fine husband
If you treat her as you treat me she cheered me on.
Some married but should not have been

Please marry and show her this care
I crawled to send an instant message
Peradventure mother was God’s mouthpiece.
I believe I can convert her sadness to happiness
Since she is a nice person seeking love

In me she would find love and true love.
Always I feel she would one day call me
Hamilton, I have been thinking of you lately.
Please forgive me for all the trouble I gave you
My memory is always fresh with your name.

Could she be throwing something worthy?
All I wanted for her was her happiness.
Would she be happy again; ever again?
God alone knows but I wish her well.
Until then, farewell if I can’t catch your love.

Prince & PA Hamilton Ayuk.

Good Name: Killed By Money and Fame

Not every famous person is rich but we could say every rich person is famous. Role models overnight and little messiahs within their communities. Their private lives are the open records of paparazzi and the sinful public elevating them to moral gurus. After all, “money talks louder than the truth”. The rich and famous are known by all for their money buys them admirers; their living is made easier by their riches as they live in opulence.
But here is another side you did not know about the rich and famous. Most of them live in fear of the unknown, are wicked: pilfering even from the poor as you saw in WorldCom and Enron. They pretend to care but they don’t care about justice, and strive on taking advantage of others as confessed by Kanye West . They fancy gathering with other wicked people as Hollywood can show. Their inner insecurities lead them to plastic surgery, murder, hate and destruction. If fame and money would make us happy then stars would not be drug addicts? When the joy within escapes an individual then a replacement is sort through addiction. One would understand that the poor wants to drown their sorrows but what about the one you envy? If Oprah picks up weight it means her Acai Berry Diet does not work. So why do you want to follow processes that do not work?
Why is 419 instead taking another dimension? People regard fame and money more than good name. People even ask you if we eat good name. Despite news that the world oldest profession is feeling the crisis young women are still freighting into the business. Some may be fighting for survival but many want money and fame. In 1990 Richard Lyon killed Nancy Dillard for money.” Dominick Dunne’s “Power, Privilege and Justice” leaves you glued to your seat as you watch the debasement of human morals. The desire to acquire money has led many into vaulting ambitions that overleapt their bounds. Nowadays people are judged by virtue of their riches rather than the riches of their virtue. Consequently, good name is slaughtered on the altar of fame and money.
The Bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil (I Tim 6:10). In our attempt to be rich and famous, we fall into temptation and foolish lusts which drown us into destruction and perdition. Many have so coveted after money that they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through many sorrows.
Can we find people today who will return lost goods? In Ljubljana: capital of Slovenia out of 30 lost cell phones 29 were returned to their owners . In Africa, America and Latin America out of 30 cell phones kept to the view of adults; even children, will be stolen. Thereby killing good name for fame.
The Bible puts wisdom on a higher pedestal to money (Eccl 7:12) because wisdom strengthens the wise than ten mighty men in the city (Eccl 7:19). But the world is the opposite. It went further to say that though wisdom is better than all the weapons of war one sinner destroys all good (Eccl 9:18). So sinners beware! Surprisingly, the world does not heed to the poor man’s wisdom (Eccl 9: 16). That is why the rich stars are now the sages of the society, even the vilest of them is a role model. .
Make no mistake the Bible says that money answers all (Eccl 10:19). But you and I know money does not answer all childlessness, ill health and stupidity. No man has two penises and no woman has three vaginas. Worst still both have only 24 hours a day. You can get drudged in all the leisure and pleasure but you will end up mocking and destroying yourself.
Therefore, that verse does not mean that when you are rich your problems are packed in a suitcase and thrown into the Pacific Ocean. You may drink all the wine you can, eat all the goodies you can afford, or do all the drugs you find but without wisdom you are a miserable being. Wisdom is the fear of the Lord.
If you want to laugh without and still laugh within choose wisdom. Wisdom will bring you good name too. But you will never know both wisdom and evil. This is one of those times where the law of Exclusive Middle works at its best. Madness and folly cannot be married to wisdom. We live as a shadow on earth and we do not even know what will happen to the fame and money we leave behind. All we are entitled to is eat and drink for that is what will abide with us all of our life because we were created to fear God and keep his commandments and not to run after fame and money. So why do we pursue things that do not satisfy our souls? Have you ever sat to reconsider the emptiness of the life we live trying to run after fame and money while those with fame and money are married to sleeping pills?
People with good name will be remembered but the name of the wicked shall rot.
Doesn’t the Bible say: a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold (Prov 22:1)? Solomon the wisest man did emphasize: a good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth (Eccl 7:1).
Until then, may we resurrect good name back.

Obama the Black History

Obama has won the presidential elections and except God changes it he will be the next US president. The inaugural ceremony will be one of pomp. Long lines will be outside with some standing and others sitting on the grass. Some will be scaling on buildings and others will not even be chanced to see it all. Those at home watching on TV may even catch a better glimpse than those who are there in the cold. The weather could be very gruel at this period in time. Some who are not used to keeping time will go there after the ceremony is all over. Others will be there 10 hours before it all starts. All of this claming they want to make history.
History has already been made when he won the Democratic nomination and History was made when he was finally elected. But those who made the history remain in the background.

I hear Dark Skinned Americans and Africans say they made history. I feel appalled that in the 21st century some people still talk on color lines. If it was only for these two groups and the Hispanics then no history would have been made. The black people are only 13% of the population and the Africans who voted are a shadow of those who participate in the discussions but are ineligible to vote. So they would not have won the elections.

During the democratic primaries, 98 % of Dark Skinned voted for Obama and only 2% voted for Hillary. If 98% of Light Skinned people had voted for Hillary then Obama would not have had the opportunity we see today. That leaves us with the question: are Dark Skinned Americans more racist than the Light Skinned Americans? If they had the position of majority that the latter do now would they have done the same thing?
The victory of Obama goes to those good Ligh Skinned Americans who abandoned color lines and espied into the future with hope and anticipation to vote for the best of their alternatives. Indeed Obama was the best among the whole crop of contestants. He is a polished young man in oratory and physiognomy, in substance and virtue.

His victory shows that America has trekked a distance. Unlike the general view that most Americans are racist it is not so. Though the face of the nation has not entirely been transformed but within, most are tired of the corrugated psychological color curtain drawn in their hearts. That is why they have voted a Dark Skinned American into power since they had the authority to do so.

Consequently, Obama was not voted into power by Dark Skinned minority and so they should quit claiming victory. It is thanks to the Light Skinned majority that created the centennial event of modern times. Once both groups of people realize they are one they can work together as Americans because some are not more Americans than others.

He takes over power at the paroxysm of economic trial. The government and him will not make any magic if the populace does not cooperate. There is a tacit call for communal resolve so that like one people sacrifices should be made and America can answer present to the clarion call of economic revival and world leadership.

Time is running out; the Chinese, Russians and Latin Americans are in a hurry to destroy the American hegemony while the opportunity lasts. Therefore, it is no more time to sit on mental apartheid while the country slips into the backseat of the world bus. The world has watched American racial seismograph and the overall conclusion is that it is not in danger. They have all taken their binoculars peering into the unknown future while patiently waiting for the king of the jungle to rise up and take the lead. It will be a long march this time as the world where color matters less. Where she goes they will follow and what she says they will do.
I give a pat to all the white people who voted for Obama. Tell your progeny and yourself you gave America the maquillage it needed in world politics and the face lift it so desired in the civil rights. Drum your chest you tore through the dark omens of racism to lay serious foundations for equality where people will be judged by the content of their character rather than by the color of their skin.

Until then, long live America.

Do We Go To Heaven Immediately After We Die?

When someone dies people say he has gone to heaven. Though I have written on this issue before in one of my articles I wanted to bring some addition. No, we do not go to meet Jesus in heaven when we die. I am very conscious we do not take a single passage to establish a doctrine but you could find other correlations in the Bible. If that is the case then why would the Bible make this statement below?
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words (I Thes 4:13-18).

This passage states the following:
1. Those who die in Christ are sleeping for they will rise up again (V.13) as supported by John 11:25-26.
2. The rapture (resurrection) will not hinder the dead (V. 14). When Jesus died and went into the hades the dead came back to life and lived amongst the other living (Mt 27:53-53).
3. The Lord will come to raise up the dead (Vs. 16,17 ). If he is coming to raise up the dead how are they with him already. If so there is no need to wake up the dead. He should just catch up the living in Christ so they can ascend unto heaven. That is endorsed by John 5:29.
4. Then the living too will enter heaven with transformed bodies (V.17) just like Enoch and Elijah did.
One thing should be clear that when Jesus was on the cross he told the thief: verily I say unto thee, to day shalt thou be with me in paradise (Lk 2: 43). Question: did Jesus resurrect the same day? He did not ascend into heaven with his spirit leaving his body. So paradise will be on earth. He went into heaven with his whole body after 40 days in a transformed body (Acts 1:9). That is why Paul tells the Corinthians that during the rapture they too will be transformed because mortality must cede way to immortality and corruptible left on the corrupt earth for the incorruptible to ascend into the incorruptible heaven:
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory (I Cor 15:51-55).
This same phenomenon has already been exercised by Enoch in Gen 5: 24 and Elijah in 2 Kings 2: 1. Therefore these must be kept tight on our bosoms. When you die you do not go to meet Jesus or go to hell immediately for there is a time for all of that. Death is not the end to earthly suffering but a door for a new eternity unto damnation or unto coronation.
Until then, encourage people to live a life worthy of coronation.

Operation Reclamation

I will be embarking on spiritual and physical exercises. From the 19-30/12/2008 my goal is to read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and to fast for three days. Then I want to lose 5 lbs too. If you are struggling with weight and need help; please don’t hesitate to join me in this journey. Just call me at 678-720-5598 and I will start to give you daily tips and exercises we need to do. I will also tell you where and what we should be reading. By the end we will memorize two verses. If you are not used to praying in the morning we will start that too. You will learn how to pray for 30 minutes every morning without wandering because the time will always be short. These are perilous times; the kingdom of God is suffering violence and only the violent will get it back.

Until then, iron sharpens iron.

O. J. Simpson’s Conviction: Justice or Payback?

No one should claim this case as Karma; it is sheer payback. Full stop! OJ Simpson was convicted because one person said he asked him to bring a gun. How many times have students said a teacher asked them to come or bring something and you asked the teacher but he or she has not even seen that student?
The jurors claimed that they could set aside their feelings about his 1995 acquittal for the death of his wife (Nicole Simpson) and friend (Ronald Goldman). The gloves to convict him did not fit and so he was acquitted. Since then the family and mostly white America did not accept the verdict and had looked for another way to nail him down. Today they finally succeeded.
No one should claim justice served for it was not justice but payback. If the African Americans in the jury were quickly dismissed and only an all white jury of 12people retained was already a signal that the chickens will be going home to roost.
OJ was not the fist celebrity acquitted of murder. Phil Spector was acquitted and no one has stuck with his name in the media. Robert Blake was acquitted of the death of his wife. So why then did OJ’s case remain engraved in the hearts of many white people?
His acquittal was a blow to white supremacists who like to act like Greek gods who lifted and destroyed their human heroes at will. OJ was a black guy made white and who later turned against the same institution that has made him what he was. Time and again he craved for publicity at will and sought for notice like a fish desires a stream.
The judge to camouflage her inherent desire to apply vengeance said that she had instructed the jury not to sentence OJ on basis of his past life. Yet they excluded all possibilities for him to be fairly tried by having a mixed jury. This is a black man condemned without a single black person in the jury.
His conviction also revealed that the law is blind but the judges see. At times I have thought that only blind people should be voted as judges but again their aides who see will tell them which color is standing in front of them.
It is always said that OJ himself failed to memorize the African proverb that says: “Only a child cursed to die prematurely will jump into a crocodile river to retrieve his shoes” He should have been thankful he escaped with his life the first time and curb his appetite for pomposity.
Nonetheless, OJ’s fall reminds us to beware of those we call our friends. No good friend sets his friend up. Friends indeed are always friends in need. At the time he needed them they failed him.
Until then, OJ farewell for there is an impartial Judge that will try all of us equitably.

How Does World Recession Affect Cameroon and Developing World

I do not think that we can compare our economy with that of the developed countries. If that is the case France faring well has not got the natural resources we do. The oil of Nigeria is proportionate to its population and topography. Consequently it will be unwise if your household with 20 people brings in $4,000 a month and yet you have members of your family who are dropouts. Meanwhile I have 2 people in mine, I bring in $500 and I have one dropout. Since the number of my household is higher, it means that my neighbor is more irresponsible than me. One would have to take into cognizance the population and physical size of Nigeria and then divide it with the amount of oil revenue and then do same with Cameroon to find out if Cameroon is doing better than Nigeria. By all counts, it will reveal that Nigeria is better off.
Furthermore, simply because my neighbor is going to the night club everyday does not mean I am better off because I only go to the soya joint all evenings. You see, he that is crying and he that is laughing are all guilty of making noise. So in this case both Cameroon and Nigeria are irresponsible.
But that is not the point; what we should worry about is where does the money we make from Oil revenue go? Why are there no roads in the South West province when the latter is the soil on which the main revenue that sustains the economy of the entire nation is? Why are companies carrying timber from Eyumojock Subdivision and during the raising season the people are cut off from the rest of the country?
Cameroon is tied to world economies in the sense that what happens in those countries indirectly affects Cameroon too to an extent. If they were directly tied then when in the 90s these countries were experiencing surpluses Cameroon should not have been in a recession that began since 1986.
There comes a time when the love for the people rises above patriotism if the same nation serves as a Sow that eats its piglets or a hen that drinks its own eggs. That pig is usually tied away from its piglets and the hen is usually taken away from its eggs. That means, no matter how patriotic we are we must speak out when a simple minority who slept on the wrong side of their beds are taking the simple majority who slept on the right side of their beds astray. If goodness does not resist evil it will replicate for evil does not resist evil.
African governments cannot use the excuse that because the US is in a recession they too should. When the US was in a surplus they have always been in a constant and perpetual recession. Besides, a certain level of independence means that at times when the developed countries are slumping economically the developing countries can stay afloat because they have structures that are independent from the rest of the world.
One major reason why most developing countries will be hit harder is because they are always in a negative Gross Domestic Product (GDP). That is; their gross national import is always more than their gross national export. That is also due to the fact that they consume rather than manufacture. That goes to buttress those opinions that acclaim technical education reinforcement. It is not like technical education does not exist but it has never been practical. As a result, one could be an engineer without knowing how to operate an engine.
In addition, the private sector should be greatly encouraged. How could that be done is by reducing taxes and encouraging small businesses. People who try to do business see their goods stuck up at the port due to high custom duties. I know that protectionism will help to reduce the inflow of imports but that will mean that nations benefit from special exemptions. In this case Countries like China over flood our markets thereby killing the local manufacturing efforts. Consequently for centuries we will remain importers rather than exporters. When there are no manufacturing industries there are no jobs because we are perpetual consumers rather than producers.
If a graduate wants to be a hustler, they are harassed all day long by the police. How do they grow to become a manufacturer? The police are so corrupt that they cite drivers for having multiple colors on their cars (voiture a couleur chameleon). The Taximen cannot do anything, abandon the efforts and together with the frustrated graduate become armed robbers.
The mistake the rich always do is to think that they can be fine no matter how the rest are doing. If the poor man cannot sleep for fear of what the rich are doing the rich will not sleep for fear of what the poor man will do as an armed robber. There are no rich people as armed robbers. They are all jobless graduates and frustrated citizens.
Therefore, it is always in the best interest of the government to help develop the country so that everyone will sleep well. Things are hard in the West like in the East, amongst developed countries and developing countries. But the fight is not only that of the government but both the government and its citizens. It is high time every citizen should reecho J. F. Kennedy’s words: "Ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what can you do for your country."
There are certain governments that have lost touch with their people and they call recession surplus and surplus evil. These governments have had one leader for more than a quarter of a century until they have run out of ideas. The people must learn from India, South Africa, the Dark Skinned Americans, Pakistan, most of Eastern Europe and most recently: Thailand that to change a government we do not need arms. The professionals: lawyers, doctors, judges, teachers, engineers, computer technicians and students should sacrifice their short term benefits to oust such regimes that have escheated them of dreams of success so they can reap in long term prosperity for themselves and their progeny. They will create a society where every child born will have hope rather than be hopeless. There are kids born in 1986, graduated in Cameroon and are jobless. They are like a sacrificed generation, born to hopelessness.
I do not understand why most Africans support their governments even when they have forgotten and abandoned them. Most of them are cut off from the rest of the country and the world with no roads whatsoever. The government of Cameroon refuses to tar the Kumba Mamfe road or the Mamfe Ekok road. Those roads if tarred will bring in business and businesses will lead to conurbation. Surprisingly the people of Manyu Division in Cameroon have been voting the government of president Biya for the past 18 years for eyedrops of ministers. The president must take note of that or else lose their support with a request for autonomy.

Until then, support not a government that does not represent you.

What is the significance of burning dead bones of the wicked?

Your story comes from I Kings 13: 11-34 2 Kings 23:

Obeying the old prophet the young prophet forfeited his rights of protection and thus lost the hedge of protection over his head. That is why the apostle Paul will say: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” (Gal 1:8). His carcass will not go to the sepulcher of his fathers. It was a privileged to be buried with one’s family especially for important names. The Lion did not kill the ass nor tear his carcass but left the ass and killed only the man of God (V 28). The Lion represent the devil that is our roaring lion (I Pet 5:8). By doing that he lost his name to be buried and remembered with his relatives. That is to show you that when the devil takes over your soul your name is erased from the book of life. Jesus will be buried in a borrowed grave because sin robs you away from birthrights.
Nonetheless, he was buried because it was the custom of the people to be buried. It would have been a privileged to be buried with his ancestors.
When Josiah came to power and was destroying the high places he burnt them all down and noticed the writings on the sepulchers (2 Kings 23:16) according to the prophecy of the Lord (I kings 13: 2,32). Josiah destroyed all the other sepulchers because the people have made them rather than God, their altars of worship. In other words the graves of those dead people were used for worship contrary to the command of God against idolatry. That is why Josiah burned them thereby by polluting the place and no more continuing the tradition of idol worship or worship of high places. That place was now a destruction mountain because through it, people in Israel solicited their own destruction by going to make sacrifices. Josiah did not touch the sepulchers of the prophets because those bones are a reminder that sin brings death. Those bones were a testament to the living that those who disobey God end up as abandoned sepulchers hoisted for the eyes of the stiff necks to feast upon.
Until then, stay blessed.

Did The Kids of Adam And Eve Commit Incest?

Siblings Patrick und Susan K. have had four children together. Patrick now faces an extended prison sentence.

I have heard the question several times but just decided to answer it since the answer is very clear in the Bible. Many people are not aware that Adam and Eve had daughters (Gen 5:4). When Adam was 130 years old he had a third son called Seth (Gen 5:3). After Cain killed Abel, he was now concerned about his own safety since he only knew about the world around him. He feared for what was out there that he did not know. Later, Cain found a woman and married her (Gen 4:14-16). A question quickly arises: where did Cain find the woman he married. It is probable that he got one of his sisters who had wondered into his territory unknowingly. Since there is no time chart as to when he got married and by then Adam and Eve had had sons and daughters.

At this time there was no ordinance against siblings having sex together. As such there was nothing like incest. So it is tacitly probable that the daughters and sons had sex together to procreate. Through them there were now many people until the flood (Gen 7:1). The flood had destroyed the world that was procreated by the sons and daughters of Noah.

Noah’s household which consisted of only his three sons and their wives and him and his wife was in the Ark. After the flood, the normal procreation continued and again there is nothing established as incest.
This practice will continue as we realized that Abram (Abraham) married his own sister Sarah (Gen 20:12). The ordinance of God and the moral law are in the same strength in that they transcend cultures and people. However the ceremonial and religious laws do not. Yet there is one set of law that is left: civil law. The civil laws are authenticated with the society and culture at a time. That is; though polygamy is not condemned in the Bible in countries where polygamy is prohibited the citizens living in that country must obey that law. As such in the days of Israel now they enacted a law in Israel against incest: “None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD” (Lev 18:6). In Leviticus 20: 17 the law is amended with consequences established. Then later the law is amended and a spiritual dimension attached to it: and a curse against incest: Cursed be he that lieth with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother. And all the people shall say, Amen (Deut 27:22).

The amendments to those civil laws neither equate to abrogation nor the unauthenticity of the Bible. What is does is confirm the sociologists assertion that no society is static. Take for instance in most states there was no major law guiding internet usage. But with time and the types of crimes committed new laws are set and a new approach taken to the situation. But then why were neither the children of Adam and Eve nor Lot (Gen 19:36). The Apostle Paul explained the dynamics of the Law to the Romans. People who lived before the law (moral law) was enacted were not judged by Law (Rom 2:12). Those who did not have the law were judged by their consciences (Rom 2:15). Only those under the law bear the consequences in the Law (Rom 3:19). For until the law was given there was sin but that sin was not judged by the Law. Sin began being judged by the Law only when the Law was given (Rom 5:13).

Therefore since the children of Adam and Eve and those of Lot did not yet have the La they could not be judged by the law. It is simple with us nowadays. When abortion was not illegal in some states no one was being judged by that. Does that mean it was not evil? It was but there was just no law judging it.
Now after the law has been established, defaulters are lawfully punished. That is why when Amnon (One of David’s son) raped his step sister Tamar (2 Sam 13:32) he paid with his life as a fulfillment of the curse that was earlier enacted in Deuteronomy 27:22.

However, if you have committed incest, know that where sin abounds grace does abound (Rom 5: 20). If you will confess your sins, God is faithful and just to forgive your sins, and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. However, if you do not there is a curse associated with it in addition to the sentence of the local law in which you live. After all most countries and places have incest as a crime.

Until then, the Law only works where it exists.

Should The Government Prosecute The Wal-Mart shoppers?

It is not the first time Wal-Mart was organizing Black Friday sales. Though no one had been killed yet but they knew the dangers of luring a people you have exploited for years with those banners of “Sales”.
Wal-Mart could have taken more precautionary measures to protect the worker from being killed by its shoppers. Before opening their doors they should have pushed the throng meters away from the door. But they did not do that. Result: one killed and many wounded .
The shoppers should not be prosecuted since they would not have known that the worker was hurt after all it has been happening like that year in year out. Those behind will think that those in front want to deceive them so they are left out. Black Friday sales happen in many stores but no one has been killed yet because those stores have a high regard for human life. While we blame the shoppers for being materialistic but it should not amount to prosecution for the fault is solely that of Wal-Mart.
Last year video footages in news networks nationwide during a Wal-Mart Black Friday showed a woman trampled upon and her fake hair cap fell off. While on the floor she was struggling to put back her fake hair. It became an instant joke for the holiday.
It is part of the culture where due to stress people are seeking for things that will make them happy. That is why on Funniest videos the fun is when people accidentally hurt themselves. A child hits the dad with the baseball bat on his penis and people laugh. A woman slides and falls on a tree stump and people laugh. A cat scratches the face of a baby and people laugh. What a society!
Wal-Mart like Olive Garden says it does not give benefits to part time employees. The trick; they draw the schedule of most of their workers in a way that they cannot obtain the 40 hours required by law to qualify them as full time employees. Thus; they are exploiting their customers. The workers unconscious they are being exploited are happy getting 39 hours a week.
I bought many things from Wal-Mart and realized that most of them come from China. Those are American jobs shipped overseas; all of this to maximize profits. Thereby they are escheating the citizens from the American Dream.
In this fight to recover from recession consumers must curb their appetite for cheap products and buy from companies that treat their workers as human beings. Surprisingly too almost every electronic I bought this holiday was made in China. What happened to the US manufacturing industries? What a Dream deferred that people born in America are jobless while foreigners overseas have jobs coming from America because companies want to make more profits. Why are human beings so materialistic and selfish? Indeed while the government must act and act swiftly to dispossess those tax advantages from companies shipping jobs overseas, the people too must assist to fight such egoism by boycotting goods from companies who ship their jobs overseas.

Until then, may the American Dream be for all citizens!

If relationship was only sex then Hollywood would be in a better predicament but unfortunately, if love was shoes, then Hollywood would charter all sizes.

Fatuity of individualism.

The charged demands of the Rat Race Culture make us forget even loved ones. In August 23, 2007 assistant principal: Brenda Nesselroad-Slaby forgot her 2 year old for more than seven hours in the backseat of her car to quickly run some errands before dropping her off at the child services . How many women lock up their babies alone in the house to run an errand or have some fun? One of the reasons too that this is happening is the absence of grand parents since most have been ushered into nursing homes.
Only in a time where people did not more care about one another would someone say he is committing suicide and others watch him do it; even praising him for the job well done . After he is dead the sister comes to blame the viewers for doing nothing . Where were they when he needed them most? No one has ever committed suicide because they had no problems and good company. At times you see people in a group but they are lonely; I mean, very lonely.
December 1, 2008 at a Wal-Mart store shopping monsters trampled upon a Wal-Mart worker trying to open the door for them . Even when informed someone had died they did not care; all they cared about were the sales they intended to buy.
Video games and TVs have paralyzed young people. They are now obese as soon as they are born and perhaps they will start being obese in the womb. We think we are celebrating the American Dream but perhaps we are hoisting our own petards. Shouldn’t people be considered by the riches of their virtues and not by virtue of their riches? Are you then surprised why we cannot let a relative; talk less of a homeless person to live with us for nothing?
In March 2008, Olga 75 and Helen 77 were accused of murdering two homeless men for financial gain . Look at their ages and see the nature of their crime. If we cannot take anyone home can we give a ride then? “Oh you know, there are many bad people out there and so you do not know who you are giving a ride to”. I have been giving rides for years but never had a bad person. In every act of benevolence there should be common sense. Yes, wisdom!
8 year old Arizona boy kills the father: Vincent Romero and Timothy Romans a work colleague who was renting a room in the family two story home in St Johns . After he died the family and friends come that they love him. Do you mean to tell me that no family member had a room to spare for him to live in? Question: why is love only strong after death? Answer: the fatuity of individualism?
Jimmy was a Manyu boy with a serious heart disease who did not have a place to live and moved from one friend’s house to another while his relatives lived in sumptuous homes. But after he died, relatives came from nowhere to inherit his corpse and insurance money. Where were they when he was homeless or semi homeless? Question: why is love only strong after death? Answer: the fatuity of individualism?
How many visit neighbors. People will die alone in their homes. In April of 2008 Alvin Thomas lived and died alone without running water or electricity in the house. After he died, see how many family members and friends showed up for his funeral ?
Dogs and cats have adoption commercials , but humans don’t have anything. When animals replace humans as perfect companions , then the people must recognize they have fallen to the basement of life .
Individualism rather than feed the people with ambrosia for immortality has injected them with poisoned nectar of death to one another. Can we boast anymore that the cock that crows may belong to the household but its crows belong to the community? The pyramids were not built by a single hand after all one stick does not make a forest. From Africa to the Americas, Antartica to Asia and from Australia to Europe, rather than community, individuity reigns in our societies. Why? It was not meant to be like this. Man was born to live in a community. We must revert to the old lifestyle of community living.
Until then, individualism is the devil's warhead to destroy community life.
