The HUG

Several interpretations have been applied Bob Marley’s Man to Man song.

Man to man is so unjust, children:
Ya dont know who to trust.
Your worst enemy could be your best friend,
And your best friend your worse enemy.
Some will eat and drink with you,
Then behind them su-su pon you.
Only your friend know your secrets,
So only he could reveal it.
And who the cap fit, let them wear it!

This blogmaster continues to marvel at how humankind despite self labelling as being the most advance of the animal specie behave as primitive in interactions as a wild animal.

As traditional values like honesty, respect, integrity, credibility to list a few give way to a people happy to be anchored in nothingness – so too the way of the world we live. A walk through many school yards bar a few tells a tale of what the morrow portends.

Barbadians have joined others where the ability to reason and apply logical thought is being trumped by political and irrelevant considerations. Even if it means national proprieties must be ignored. The inability to reason is not deliberate, it is derivative of educated ignorance.

Our inability to demonstrate love, forgiveness are character traits in the modern era is a waning behaviour.

The reaction to the ‘HUG’ given to Amber Guyger by the brother of murder victim Botham Jean makes for an interesting case study. The Black judge that approved the action also hugged Guyger as has attracted the ire of an ism crazy public. A simple act of love and forgiveness has been interpreted in so many ways it was not meant to be.

Several times the blogmaster has issued the refrain that all the world needs is more love. It seems the ability to demonstrate love and forgiveness has gotten lost in the translation of surviving in today’s rate race. Could it be the ‘HUG’ becomes a seminal moment in time?

  • “Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation did not find sufficient evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign coordinated with Russia to influence the United States’ 2016 election and did not take a clear position on whether Trump obstructed justice.”

    Mr Mueller was made to look like the blabbering old fool that he certainly cannot be when he reneged on his position not to testify and allowed Mr Nadler to inveigle him so to do.

    In my view, it turned out to be quite an embarrassing experience for the once highly respected Mr Mueller – excerpts of which are as follows :

    Were you fired? NO
    Were you allowed to complete your investigations unencumbered? YES
    Did you resign from your post at the end of the submission of your report? YES
    Did the DOJ rule prevent you from indicting the President?YES

    but Mr Mueller later asked to be allowed to make a retraction?

    ” I want to correct my earlier answer to Mr Liu’s question-

    “what i should have said is that we could not come to any determination to prove criminality against against the President ”

    “You said that you could not come to a conclusion to to indict the President for obstruction of justice because a sitting President could not be indicted” but there was no response to the follow-up question
    “How then were you able to come to a conclusion that there was no collusion by the Trump campaign with the Russians”

    It is established that a sitting President cannot be indicted but it was Mr Mueller’s remit nonetheless to gather appropriate evidence to establish the guilt of Mr Trump not for Mr Trump to prove his innocence. Mr Mueller was to provide the cold hard evidence trumpeted by Mr Schiff and Mrs Pelosi. and that he has been unable to do so after two years and millions of dollars to fulfill his obligation without encumbrances speaks volumes for his competence and/or incompetence.

    That he could not find Mr Trump Mr Trump guilty of obstruction after two years of investigations but could only list infractions which point to intent but from which inferences can be drawn seems to me to be an indication that Mr Mueller was trying to get back at Mr Trump for Mr Trump’s belligerent and obnoxious behaviour towards him during the investigation.

    Senor re @ 11:29 … you followed the investigation as we all did, you saw who and why Mr Mueller was appointed, you read parts of the report as many of us did and yet you can rationally come to a conclusion in part to say: “…seems to me to be an indication that Mr Mueller was trying to get back at Mr Trump for Mr Trump’s belligerent and obnoxious behaviour towards him during the investigation…”.

    A man of his caliber appointed to investigate issues of campaign malfeasance and obstruction of justice turns in a report which cited up to 10 ( as I recall) instances of obstruction of justice (or bold intent as you say, which mean the same in this context) and you can only attack the man personally to dismiss the damning report. 😂🤣!

    Taking this logic one step further, does it mean if a Barbadian leaves Barbados at a young age and later becomes a US citizen s/he is no longer Barbadian, but an Afro-American? What does heritage mean in this context? You also ask about dual nationality.
    But you miss the most important thing in that Afro-American is an ethnic sub-category, like Irish-American, or Italian-American, that was the thinking behind the creation of the category in the 1960s (from negroes to blacks to Afro-Americans). Ethnicity is different to nationality. I asked before: can my mother, sisters, brother, aunts, cousins and uncles be Afro-Americans and I not?
    Nationality is a different socio-legal category. A Barbadian can be Barbadian and British; s/he does not lose his/her Barbadianness. Many of the people reading this are dual nationals. The Trinidadians used to ban citizens from obtaining dual nationality. I believe they have now changed that law.
    To return to the substantive point, the young man is a Somali-American, not an Afro-American. Why do you think all those Americans hold on to their hyphenated identities? I have seen black Britons described on TV as Afro-Americans because the reporters did not want to say black.

    I was amazed when I once saw an application form completed by a Barbadian female on which she wrote her “place of birth” is Barbados, “nationality” = Barbadian, but in the section for “race,” she described herself as an “African American.”

    Perhaps she though “African-American” is another term for “Negro” or “Black” or she felt it was inappropriate to use those words.

    The ethnonym Afro-American (and later African-American), was a term used to describe “Black” people from other ethnic groups, because at the time the phrase was coined, majority of Black people living in the US were of African ancestry.

    The use of “African-American” can be traced as for back as 1782, on a pamphlet entitled “A Sermon on the Capture of Lord Cornwallis……By An African-American.”

    SSPFL, yuh dun know I is “obviously a non-stater” or I en ready yet, so, I need your help. in understanding this issue. I cannot understand, for example, if Cheryl was born in Barbados and subsequently moved to the USA where she gained citizenship, how can she automatically move from being a Barbadian to be called an African-American?

    Is it being suggested she lost her Barbadian heritage the moment she became a US citizen and is now African and American, rather than being Barbadian and American? Or, since Cheryl is of African descent, but born in Barbados, is she African Barbadian, but becomes African-American as soon as she gains US citizenship? Where does her “Barbadianess” goes?

    We know that a white man of German ancestry living in the US would be called “German-American.” What would you call a white, “born and bred” Barbadian who migrated to the US and gained citizenship? A “Barbadian-American?”

    And if so, would that term be reserved only for whites, since you seem to be insisting a black Barbadian should be called African-American?

    Mr Blogmaster re your “Ghanaian American, Nigerian American, South African American…What next.” This is a contrived non debate as u suggest.

    The term Afro American as was clearly noted above is basically a catch all term used primarily by media (and others like that) and Black power progressives/activists (very deliberately) to suit different reasons and agendas.

    Just as clearly and obviously that descriptive term has NOTHING to do with nationality … A Bajan does not lost his/her cultural moorings because they are described as Afro American…

    This debate is so dated it’s amazing the currency given it here again as some fresh or meaningful item.

    And that Kurd treachery is monumental…

    There is clearly LOTS of mess in that mortar and obviously t’s not a simple matter BUT the Kurds fully expected LONG TERM salvation from Turkish attacks when they settled in with the US in this ISIS fight.

    If Turkey is allowed to reengage warfare with them and can cut them to shreds then look out…

    Let me use @Pieces facetious style and ask: Do we think the Trump empire will be free forever of Kurdish retaliation.

    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    MY FATHER TAUGHT ME AT AGE 14 DO RIGHT AND FEAR NO MAN…….DONT WRITE AND FEAR NO WOMAN

    DONT WRITE AND FEAR NO WOMAN IS 100% CORRECT

    WHEREAS YOU SHOULD ALWAYS STRIVE TO DO RIGHT IT DOES NOT MAKE YOU IMMUNE FROM THE DOINGS OF EVIL ENVIOUS MEN

    THERE WAS ONE MAN WHO LIVED ON EARTH WHO WAS PERFECT–WHO DID NO SIN NOR WAS GUILE FOUND IN HIM .
    Hebrews 4:15 TELLS US THAT HE was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. YET THEY HATED HIM AND MURDERED HIM

    MANY STILL HATE HIM TODAY AND BLASPHEME HIS NAME, HIS WORD HIS WORTH AND HIS WORK..
    HIS DETRACTORS GO MAD TOO…….JUST LIKE THE TRUMP DETRACTORS DO.

    IT IS SIMPLY HILARIOUS

    AFTER THREE YEARS BEING EMBROILED BY HATE AND VENOM AND VICIOUS VENEER BY SOME HE CAN STILL TRULY SAY THE WORDS OF Isaiah 54:17
    No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
    And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
    You shall condemn.
    This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
    And their righteousness is from Me,”
    Says the Lord.

    What I am saying to you is that you cannot pick my synonym.

    My dictionary says – despise – feel contempt or repugnance for.

    I choose “repugnance”. IN OTHER WORDS ACCORDING TO MY DICTIONARY I find him disgusting and repulsive. i feel revulsion. NOT HATRED.

    You chose another synonym. You, thank all the gods, are not inside my head and cannot speak for me.

    Now shut up and stop making yourself look stupid! Concede that I know what I meant and not you.

    PS. I deign to answer you because you have not, like another, insulted my grandmother whom they never knew.. Whatever said person opines shall remain unanswered, not because I do not have an answer but because I find them unworthy of my time.

  • “I fully think apologizing is a great thing,” the famously self-assured Trump replied before winning the studio audience’s applause by adding: “But you have to be WRONG. … I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I’m ever wrong.”

    “If I make a mistake, yeah, I think it’s great. But I try not to make mistakes,” Trump replied. “Why do I have to repent, why do I have to ask for forgiveness, if you are not making mistakes? I work hard. I’m an honorable person. I have thousands of people who work for me. I have employed tens of thousands of people over the years.”

    Although I understand Christ is not supposed to be sticking around so long.this time. The faithful are supposed to meet him in the air, then leave us heathens for some sort of great tribulation before Christ takes over again.

    I am confused!

  • • It is very important to note that the second coming of Christ occurs over a period of time and is not just a single event.
    • The second coming of Christ will occur in two distinct phases, both of which are clearly identified in several scriptural passages.
    • In the first phase the Lord comes FOR the saints at the RAPTURE.
    • In the second phase the Lord comes WITH the saints at the REVELATION.
    • The references to the second advent of Christ in the Old Testament ALL refer to the second phase of the second coming of Christ.
    • The second coming of Christ begins with the rapture of the church [the blessed hope of Titus 2:13 a] when the Lord comes IN THE AIR FOR THE SAINTS, and climbs to another height seven years later at the glorious appearing of Titus 2:13 b], when He returns to earth WITH the saints [Jude14, Rev 19 :11-16] to usher in the millennial kingdom so often spoken of by the Old Testament writers.
    • The Rapture of The Church [the first phase of the second coming] is an exclusive experience of the true Church, and is fundamentally a New Testament doctrine.
    • Truths concerning the rapture were first alluded to by Jesus during the Olivet discourse [Matthew 23-25] and in John 14 as part of the Upper Room Discourse recorded by John only, in John 13-17.
    • These embryonic mentions of this doctrine were later expanded on by Paul in 1Cor 15: 51 ff, and in 1 Thess 4:16-18, by Peter in 2 Peter 3, and John in Rev 4 inter alia. They are also other brief mentions to this event in some of the other epistles.
    • The time line of the second coming of Christ may conveniently be broken down into about ten major events to facilitate our comprehension.
    • As we consider the doctrine of the second coming of Christ, it is good to have in our minds a good working outline, to which we can continually add references as we continue to study the Scriptures on this topic.
    • The working outline of the second coming that I have been using since 1982 is given below in chronological order.

    • 1.The Rapture of the Church (1st Phase), occurs simultaneously with the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit, 2 Thess. 2:6-7

    • It is followed by the judgement Seat of Christ (bema) and the marriage of the lamb.( John 14:1-3, 1 Cor. 15:51,52; 1 Thess. 4:16-18; Rev.3:10;; 1 Cor. 3:12-15; 2 Cor. 5:10.)
    • These events occur BEFORE the start of the seven year period called the ‘ tribulation”.
    • 2.The Revelation of Antichrist. –. The anti-Christ rises to power over the Roman confederacy ( Dan. 7:20, 24.; 2 Thes 2 , Rev. 13)
    • 3.The Rigors of The Great Tribulation.
    • 4.The Resounding Victory of Christ at the Battle of Armageddon— Armies unite at Armageddon against Christ and the armies of Heaven ( Joel 3:9-11; Rev. 16;16; 19:17-19), and are ( destroyed by Christ: Rev. 19:19,21).
    • 5. The Return of Christ in Glory (2nd. phase) Jude 14-15
    • 6.The Renegade Satan is bound- (Rev 20:1-3) The “beast” (anti-Christ) and the false prophet are thrown into the lake of fire: Rev. 19:20.
    • 7.The Rule of Christ in the Millennial Kingdom. (Several OT scriptures) (Rev 20:1-7, 1000 years mentioned 5 times)
    • 8. The Rebellion of Satan for the last time. (Rev 20:7-10)
    • 9. The Rejection of unbelievers at the last judgement. (Rev 20:11-15)
    • 10.The Retirement of the saints to the new heaven and the new earth. (Rev 21)

    Anyhow, it is an article showing Donald Trump’s most offensive tweets. IF those tweets are TRUE, then, the most significant one on the list would be:

    “@Jesus, such a loser. Washes people feet. Very dirty. Would be nothing without daddy. Mom wasn’t a virgin, needs to be said. SAD.”

    I found others tweets that I also thought were very funny.
