A Democrat’s illiberalism! 


Never had I seen a country where the losing side would agitate with the avid support of the media against a newly elected party, which had been out of power for EIGHT LONG YEARS! The last eight years saw a person belonging to a 12% minority as the President of the USA, who in his first victory speech didn’t mention Martin Luther King – as grave an error as Joshua not making a mention of Moses when he set foot into the land of Canaan. In my country the largest minority has 18% of its population, yet had never come anywhere within the sight, forget striking distance, of making it to the top political job – either thru an organisation or in his/her own name. 

Yet we think that the whites are still treating the blacks and the Latinos badly. Blacks would have a history of enslaved immigrant but the Latinos are escapee migrants from a neighbouring country! Rightly, the citizens had voted a black for the reason that people felt they were correcting a historically unjustified harm inflicted by their forebears, but the Democrats I presume have allowed themselves to believe that they had done it for some principles of Liberal-ism! 

The Democrats voted for a black, but that wouldn’t have carried Obama to the White House, it was the whites who voted him to power, but being a dwindling majority- down to 62% from 72%, during the last bit one elections! 

Now, the resentment whether it is Trump’s likely conflict of interest with his business or his strident position against the Latinos, is not clear, but never has a Democracy been undermined ever, as the protests against Trump, the winner of a democratically conducted elections, fairly with no allegations of rigging by anyone. 

Yet they are not Liberal enough to accept a verdict returned by the majority- as defined under its Constitution!

Trump & Obama!


The book of ESTHER offers a super parallel to the recently concluded US elections. 

The following are excerpted to portray a sketch of how Haman pumped up by the media (229 newspapers had endorsed Hillary to less than 20 for Trump) had been emboldened not to see this coming! 

But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence. 

And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath

Then said Zeresh his wife and all his friends unto him, Let a gallows be made of fifty cubits high, and to morrow speak thou unto the king that Mordecai may be hanged thereon: then go thou in merrily with the king unto the banquet. And the thing pleased Haman; and he caused the gallows to be made. 
 So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself? 

 7. And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour, 

 

8. Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head: 

 

9. And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour. 

 

10. Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king’s gate: let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken. 

 

11. Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour. 

 

12. And Mordecai came again to the king’s gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered. 
Such is the case of Obama that he has to not only take around Trump, but has to share the nuclear code with his successor Trump!

This was a catechism class taken by Michelle Obama in New Hampshire, predicated on the dredged up stale video more than a decade old, colouring the President elect Mr. Donald Trump, as a male beast with no decency! Thanks Michelle🙏🏽. It is this stupid gender based male bashing engendered by being cocooned in the White House for the last eight years which did the hapless Hillary in!
A little reminder of an old saying from the Old part of the Bible: THE RACE IS NOT FOR TGE SWIFT NOR THE BATTLE FOR THE STRONG.
At least when you get out of the White House and return to reality, like Nebuchadnezzar your sanity would return. Stop this catechism and grow gracefully instead of taming men. Let them be! You have tamed yours and stick to it as a blessing from God, stop pontificating on decency based on the morale boosting belief on the mercenary pollsters! Like that hen pecked Ahab said: LET NOT HIM WHO PUTS ON THE ARMIUR TALK LIKE THE ONE WHO PUTS IT OFF.
Stick to the coastal rich and don’t start lectures on stale videos let loose by interested crooks!

Illma Gore’s cartoon! 


Movid's Weblog

Underbelly of Feminism!
Men have evolved!
The indicator is that most men would revolt against depiction of women in a disparaging light, especially relating to their bodily parts.

I am amused that women who had been defending men, having a small penis, have become a puny voice when it comes to the choice of a President, there appears to be a deep aspiration for them to have a well endowed President.
Illma Gore, whom I suppose to be an Australian, has depicted Donald Trump with a stub, taking the nomination of the Republican debate further!

If size didn’t matter, why should Illma Gore be making that the point in issue, especially when she doesn’t appear to have been at the receiving end of it or has been at any point been licensed to use it?

Opportunities to become somebody from relative oblivion through such dubious means are proliferating, especially as…

Demonetisation of Rs. 500 & 1000 currency notes!


Demonetisation of INR 500 & 1000 notes:
We as a nation tend to be myopic, to that extent that we are concerned about our concerns and not the concerns of others. It isn’t necessary to be sympathetic always when we are concerned, at times we have to see the inordinate gains which are possible for others because of a situation. The situation today i.e on the intervening night of the 7th and 8th of November, 2016 is one of speculative trepidation! Everyone is having his or her own perspective. Most Indians believe that Hillary and her Democratic Party would be good for India. In Bangalore, where even for purchase of paan techies swipe cards, especially in the IT corridors of Bannerghatta Road or Sarjapur Road or the nucleus of Whitefield, this demonetisation has no alarming reaction. Most of those who are writing programs, crunching data and distilling algorithms aren’t concerned at all. It is another piece of news. But there are millions who are bothered, bothered how they would get their cash into banks with justifiable reasons and get it integrated into their accounts. The ones who would predominantly get into this are the drug dealers, land grabbers, diamond dealers, hundi transporters of cash, and land sellers who had taken a part of their sale proceeds in cash! The last is a pitiable lot, they not only lost their property but have as well lost the cash, which they have to sell on a discount. 

Besides the above sufferers, there is a minuscule set of people who COULD FISH IN TROUBLED WATERS! Who are they? 

They are the bankers & politicians in power. They have the reins without any Rules. Mayhem brings its own set of Rules – MIGHT IS RIGHT. Day after Tomorrow morning when the banks open and ration payouts in lesser denominations or in the newly christened 2000 and 5000 denominations, the Rules are going to be made by the banker. It is not the payouts which would be lucrative but the pay-ins. How to avoid the threshold of detection and get enormous cash integrated in lieu of the defunct notes. The Politician is the big daddy of them all, he gets to know how to get all the cash into the account as donations from unknown faces. The more powerful in the Government have more options, they could make certain rules which would be published much after the excited ones have made a clean breast of things within the initial few days. They are the ones one should envy, at this momentous juncture. Imagine a truckload of currencies stuck with a business cum political person! He has to make a deal with a politician to make a bank accept the cash and redeem its npa to a certain extent and the politician gets a cut, a chunk of it for the timely but substantial help! 

How interesting? I am turning green with envy at the impending prospects of those bankers and politicians! 

What would happen to all those notes in Nepal, Bhutan, Singapore and Srilanka? God knows! May be there are opportunities evolving for them there as well. But in any case, the opposition parties which have relied on cash for purchasing votes have to galvanise their cadres to get their act together to get the old notes exchanged! But in any case, they would be the biggest losers. 

Caesar’ death was a fact, but Antony & Brutus had different perspective on that fact. It is but refreshing to read JC at these moments and amaze!
“O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,

That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!

Thou art the ruins of the noblest man

That ever lived in the tide of times.

Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!

Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,–

Which, like dumb mouths, do ope their ruby lips,

To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue–

A curse shall light upon the limbs of men;

Domestic fury and fierce civil strife

Shall cumber all the parts of Italy;

Blood and destruction shall be so in use

And dreadful objects so familiar

That mothers shall but smile when they behold

Their infants quarter’d with the hands of war;

All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:

And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,

With Ate by his side come hot from hell,

Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice

Cry ‘Havoc,’ and let slip the dogs of war;

That this foul deed shall smell above the earth

With carrion men, groaning for burial.”

–Mark Antony from “Julius Caesar” (3.1.254-275)

Pre-conception Issue! 


Pre-conception issue! 

I never get tired of reading the fifth chapter of John’s Gospel, for predominantly two reasons.

One is that there was an invalid outside the Bethesda, who neither desired to be healed, nor knew the name of the one who came calling, worse still, he didn’t even know His name, after he got cured of his inability to stir out of the slot he had occupied for 38 long years.

There is nothing to show that that invalid willed for a cure, probably he is the best character to exemplify that if you join the queue your turn would come. It came, but not as he expected.

This invalid knew the complete procedure of the Bethesda, the first to get in at the stirring of the pool would get healed. He had a good excuse, that there was none to get him into the pool at the time of stirring. Someone always got ahead of him.

Can you imagine that he was there for 38 years, maybe he came in as a young man or a boy. THIS INVALID WAS POSITIONED NEAR THE BETHESDA MUCH BEFORE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION. A problem which pre-dates the Word coming in flesh.

 

6. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

 

7. The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

 

8. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
Effort was not lacking despite his knowledge that he couldn’t be the first for he says : ” while I am coming ….”
He knew the procedure, he never gave up Hope in the system, waited for 38 long years, he may not have been the first, but surely he put in the effort needed for him to be counted as a man in the queue who moved a step ahead.

Jesus, what He felt I know not and hate to be presumptive enough to speculate but ORDERS him RISE, PICK UP & WALK. The rest is there for anyone who cares to read. I see the invalid as a man ossified with the knowledge of the procedure, not inclined to overcome the knowledge which has not only kept him tethered to the Bethesda, but content following the procedure knowing well that he wasn’t going to be the first!
The next is verse 26 which says that Jesus could lay down his Life and take it back. A self proclaimed attribute of Divinity to not only grant Life to others, but to lay down one’s Life and take it back at will!

I often wonder, if Jesus had laid down His Life, where would He have the consciousness still left in Him, to get Himself back to Life?

That’s where my logic, reasoning and knowledge break down.

An analogy like a car dismantling itself and reassembling to form the car again as a wholesome car!

Well, each part of the car has to know not merely its place in the scheme of the car, but has to individually gyrate in TIME & SPACE , to move without a Consciousness and form the whole car!

That’s what Jesus said!

Probably that’s where God the Father comes in and the Spirit inspires.

 

Whatever it be, to my insignificant understanding, this Chapter shall never dim my spiritual curiosity on this point, notwithstanding the valley of dry bones; Pauline palliative of the Father resurrecting the Son!

All those interpretations may have a semblance of Truth to it, but do not explain holistically, as human understanding needs to improve much more to appreciate that phenomenon!

I recently had listened to a short talk on Heart failure, where the Speaker said: When the cells of the heart die, the neighbouring cells rush in to resuscitate the dead cell and the wholesome cells all rush in and create new cells to make up for the loss. If that were to be the case, there is God consciousness in every cell and may be in Jesus, He got a new body, as John says that the mortal remains of Jesus wasn’t there!

 

Read John 5 and wonder ! !!!
