Worlds foremost revolutionary executed

On this day observed as ‘Mournful Friday’ by Christendoms revolutionaries because a fellow human being was killed by the state and the religious leaders of His day. Very much like us because it is written, “For we have not an high priest, who can not be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin,” Hebrews 5:15.

Wherever Jesus went He encouraged resistance to state policies and held the religionist in perfect contempt. Because He said, “I and my Father are one and the same,” John 10:30;14:7;1 John 5:7, and, “Repent or you shall likewise perish,” Luke 13:3. Words still disdained today by Christ deniers whether politicians or religionist. They thought His death would silence His movement. They were correct. The modern church is the perfect whore of the state. We have His disdain for governments recorded in Isaiah 40:15. And His contempt for the church in Revelation 3:14-17. Together they have silenced the Christ objection to state and religious corruption.

So with suspicion of future events Christ offered some parting words.” It is finished,” John 19:30 Standing near the execution spot was the mother of Christ, and Mary Magdalene His personal adviser perhaps history’s most influential women. Jesus looked at His mother and the disciple whom He loved standing near by, He said to His mother, “Woman behold your Son,” John 19:26. Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home, John 19:27. From those words from Jesus, “Woman behold your son.”

Many seek her supernatural intersession. Such an unfortunate occurrence, though blessed is the mother of Christ. Jesus never said that His mother could intercede on behalf of we sinners.

From time to time history puts forth an unusual person, sometimes a man like Jesus and at other times a woman like Mary Magdalene. Who then stand up and oppose the corruption of the state and church. We know what Jesus did. But few know that it was Mary Magdalene, who held the disciples together after the murder of Jesus. According to the Gnostic Bible, found in The Gospel of Mary, “The students were grieved. They wept profoundly saying, “How can we go to the gentiles and preach the gospel of the kingdom of the human child? If they did not spare Him, will we be spared?” Then Mary stood up, greeted them all, and said to her brothers, “Do not weep and do grieve or be irresolute, for His grace will be fully with you and will protect you. Rather let us praise His greatness. He prepared us and made us truly human.”

When Mary said this, she turned their hearts to the good, and they began to discuss the words of the Savior.

That was then but what about today? So the question is asked? What have you done to oppose the ineffectiveness of the state and church? And is there anything that we can do collectively to make the state more answerable to God’s edicts? And the church, a combative operative of the revolutionary Christ? Destroying the church as a snuggle bunny of the state! Can you not see how unchristian America has become from her past?

The Begotten of Strange Children

Thundering across the skies with increasingly greater noise are the teachings of Jacob, who gathered his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days.” (Scriptural text:Genesis 49:1).

We are his children, the offspring of one of Jacob’s sons Joseph. And Joseph had two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. With Hosea chiming in and saying, “They have dealt treacherously against the LORD.” Describing this treachery as the “begotten of pagan children.” (Scriptural text:Hosea 5:7a,b, KJV). Declared to be behaviors by thought, actions and accomplished deeds which are viewed as the ultimate departure from His counsel, as recorded in the scriptures. And from the last discussion, arose the question, to be answered here. Just what might be some of those departures?

For now, two such departures will be discussed. With the second to be discussed later. With the first being Americas determination to sanction homosexual life styles as accepted behaviors. It is to be expected that the government would sanction and see homosexual behaviors as normal relationships. With such people being afforded all civil conveniences entitled by law to non-homosexual people.

One of the failing and falling beauties of America, is our constitutional wall of separation between church and state. In the past, the Body of Christ, people like you and me, who literally are the church. We were strong enough to keep the government in check. With the ability of the church in all aspects of governance which was able to deny the government the authority to legalize homosexual marriages. How can the church be an influence for God, when even some churches are sanctioning homosexual behavior. Even going so far, as to ordain homosexual clergy. When God’s prohibition against homosexuality is not questionable. It’s clearly recorded for all time in Leviticus 20:13, that such behavior is an abomination to God and worthy of death. Here are the the exact words, “If a man lies with with male, as he lies with a woman, both have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”

At one time the union of American states was unanimous in its stand against homosexuality. But, one by one, states fell victim to what God condemns. Some by their state legislators, others by state and federal courts. Finally the nations highest court stepped in and delivered a death blow to America. By spitting in God’s face, by ruling in favor of what He condemned.

May God be gracious to us by raising up His sleeping church to take its rightful role as the inhibitors of all, who would mock God because of His sacred edicts.

There are those, who would argue that Old Testament prohibitions against homosexuality passed with the ushering in of Christendom. Advancing their position by asserting that the Old Testament was about the law while the New Testament is about mercy through grace.

While both arguments have merit, but one does not cancel out the other. Because the New Testament picks up the Old Testament prohibition against homosexuality. In the book of Romans this condemnation of homosexual is found. “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves. Who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections; for even their women did exchange the natural use for that which is against nature; and likewise also men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves recompense of their error which was fitting,” Romans 1:24:27.

For closure, behavior is classified as being moral or immoral. With the highest law available for guidance being God’s law as contained in our holy scriptures. Therefore, to be moral is to condemn homosexuality and oppose any governmental ruling that says otherwise. To be immoral is to accept the opposite of what God’s condemns.

Furthermore, there are many mysterious occurrences that surround us. One of which are the scriptures quoted for this discussion. They represent the very living essence of God today. We discover this in John 1:1, which breathes the following, “In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD and the WORD was GOD.” Then examine Isaiah 55:11, followed by John 3:8. That’s why we call it the living breathing WORD!

A tribute to Rosa Parks

In the city of Bethlehem a mother gave birth to a baby boy whom she named Jesus. He grew up to be a hard working person. Known for his respect for others. Someone who cared about the human indignities many people encountered. A person of impeccable moral virtue. He spent his life helping people erase the indignities perpetuated upon them by the religious and civil authorities. So profound was his impact upon society that he ushered in new religious and civil law. His community activism brought both religious and civil prosecution which ended with a death sentence. He told his followers that even in death he would live. Followers were encouraged to live by his precepts, and that is how he would continue to live.

Centuries later, another mother gave birth to a baby girl. Her name was Rosa McCauley. She was born in Tuskegee, Alabama, February 4, 1913. On this October day she died. This is a tribute of celebration. We know her as Rosa Parks. Perhaps the mother of the civil rights movement. Just like Jesus she was a hard working person and of outstanding moral character. Quite and polite but determined were some of the attributes that characterized her life. She abhorred the indignities perpetuated upon the African American community by both the religious and civil authorities. She was arrested and prosecuted. Like Jesus, she was found to be guilty. Also like Jesus, she influenced the world community. She helped to usher in new religious and civil law. A devout follower of the Christ principle. She lived her life according to the precepts of Jesus that results in her life continuing after death. For she will live through the deeds of others, just like her Jesus.

How the shoe was placed on the wrong foot

…; “and accordingly, all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed…” The 56 Signatories of the Declaration of Independence

We the common people need to utilize our “inalienable rights” that the our elitists founding fathers generated for the people. Feeling certain that the common people would forever be trapped by a willingness to endure long suffering evils. Like the millions of common people without health insurance, despite Obamacare. That sends them to their deaths prematurely. In some incidences after great suffering. Which is a civil rights violation, and thus, a crime against humanity. It’s more of a civil right than civil unions between homosexuals. Health care for everyone is as much as a civil right, as any other right under civil rights legislation. Whether by constitutional amendment, or by statutory law.

The grand manipulator, the United States, persuades most that’s it a civic to give ones allegiance to the government. That sends common people to places to fight wars  for regional dominance, and to line the treasure chests of corporate America with immeasurable wealth. While hard working common people, the life blood of America, experience greater hardships in their pursuit of live, liberty and happiness. In other words, a just slice of the American dream. Which the government promotes, is the end result of civil allegiance. Eventually most realize it’s unreachable because neither the government, nor their masters, corporate America will not allow it. America has always been about elitism with wealth for the few and poorness for the many.

Your founding fathers, those 56 signatories, laid an inalienable responsibility upon every American. “…,Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” Secondly, “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,..”

An American public that is mostly very lethargic has placed the nations inalienable and self evident truths of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness at great jeopardy.

Time to think about change. But that’s just wasted brain power because the founding fathers got it right. People are willing to suffer, as long as a few crumbs are thrown there way. It makes the suffering, sufferable just to allow for a taste of life, liberty and happiness. Then they won’t revolt and that’s American democracy is all about.

Changing tides

Never a dull moment, so it seems for John. Seems like after an extraordinary adventure ends and another comes along. This time John tells us that he was approached by an angel. Who said, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot, who sits on many waters. With whom the kings of this earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” Texts:Revelation 17:1-2.

This is a judgment against the United States. No other country has as many waterways for the exporting and importing of all kinds of commerce. Those waterways have made the United States prosperous beyond the imagination of any other country. How was it done? Done through divine permission, who made everything favorable for one of Sarah’s children, the United States. Divinely stamped by God Almighty himself as recorded in Genesis 17:15-16. That’s the way it was suppose to be but is turning out to be a disaster. For the charge is that the United States, has become a spiritual adulterer. Who has made her own people, and the community of nations, drunk with her fornication’s.

So retribution is mine says the Most High. It goes this way, For God has put it in their hearts to fulfill his purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to to the beast, until the words of the God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is the great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. Texts:Revelation 17:17-18.

Whose heart is the angel referring to? The rising Islamic fourth kingdom discussed yesterday.

One last thought before moving on with a couple of questions. From a reading of the scriptures employed yesterday then compared with a reading of Revelation seventeen. It’s possible to get confused because the scriptures from Revelation suggest a different ten horned beast than Daniel’s ten horned beast. Know this because it’s important. Prophecies can find fulfillment sometime in multiple ways through different adversaries of God. Take notes from secular events match them with scriptural developments. It’s a rich experience, and you’ll develop your spiritual understanding in an exponential manner.

So now the questions. Everything seems so scripted by God, so why not just observe and let events take there God announced fulfillment? Can mere mortals, regardless of their numbers change what divine providence from has destined? Yes!

At one time God was so fed up with human behavior that he determined to put an end to human existences. His exact words, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the face of the earth. Both man and beast, creeping things and birds of the air. I am sorry that I made them.”

Why? Then the LORD saw that the wickedness was great on the earth. And that every intent of the thoughts of his heart, was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that he made man on the earth, and he was grieved in his heart.

But Noah, found grace in the eyes of the LORD. And the LORD said to Noah, “The end of all flesh is before me. For the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark. A turn around from certain death. With humanity being spared and given a new beginning. Texts from Genesis six.

The Moses Challenge: One day the LORD said to Moses, “Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them, and I may consume them. And, I will make you a great nation.” Texts:Exodus 32:9-10. But Moses challenged God with rational arguments which are found in verses 11-13. So the LORD relented from the harm he would do to his people, according to verse fourteen.

Zephaniah’s Counsel to America:Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, O undesirable nation. Before the decree is issued, or the day passes like chaff, before the LORD’S fierce anger comes upon you! Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth. Who have upheld his justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the LORD’S anger. Texts:Joel 2:1-3.

Reversing Changing Tides:”Now therefore,” says the LORD, “Turn to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” Text:Joel 2:12.

If done, it brings this result. So rend your heart, and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and he relents from doing harm. Text:Joel 2:13.

Two Eternal Promises For Tomorrow.

Muslims national and international enemy

What is it about religion that is so captivating? That despite the best efforts of some to diminish its influences. Religion always remains the power to contend with.That has been the case for the United States since its beginnings. If it were not for the separation clause in our Bill of Rights, the United States most likely would be a nation with Christianity as its official state religion. And that state religion would probably be some form of protestant evangelical fundamentalism.

Every American should be grateful that “separation clause” because religion represents one of the greatest evils perpetuated upon citizens of any country. Women and men are not capable of speaking for God. When they attempt to speak for God, the result is a people oppressed and often brutalized. It does not matter which flavor of religion a person prefers. Christianity must remain a private matter and not a public obligation. That does not mean that Christians should remain silent concerning governing matters concerning the state. To the contrary, Christians need to hold the state accountable to the blessings and constraints of our Judeo Christian heritage. We are not doing the job, and that’s why America is in trouble.

The above is shared because if Muslims have their way our America will be tailored in the clothing of Islamic law and culture. Will Americans fight to preserve their nation? I think not because Christendom has gotten to fat and lazy. Because in America, she is not a persecuted church, yet.

When religion determines the political agenda for a nation, the politicians establishes standards for civil behavior based around religious law. Resulting in a perfect formula for mindless submission to the dictates of politicians. Who are subservient to religious authorities. Take a look at the Muslim world because dozens of examples exist.

Then we see this playing out on the world stage everyday, somewhere. Men, women, boys, and girls willing to blow themselves up for some eternal reward. If that is not mindless submission to an edict from a religious authority, then mindless submissions is non existent.

At the beginning of this posting a question was asked. “What is it about religion that is so captivating?” The answer is quite simplistic. It is the promise of escape from eternal torment and the promise of paradise! Most likely, when a suicide bomber straps to his or her body lethal explosives. That person is motivated by some edict. For Muslims, it comes from the Qur’an. With the edict having been provided by Allah through the prophet Muhammad. Who has inspired modern day Islamic clerics to continue the Islamic cause.The following is one source of inspiration etched into the minds of suicide bombers. “You who believe, shall I show you a bargain that will save you from painful torment? Have faith in God and his Messenger [Muhammad] and struggle for his cause with your possessions and your persons-that is better for you, if you knew-and he will forgive your sins, and admit you into the Gardens graced with flowering streams, into pleasant dwellings in the Garden of Eternity, This is the supreme triumph,” Quar’an 61:11-12. And never forget Muhammad’s, eternal edict, “I was ordered to fight all men until they say, ‘There is no god but Allah.'”

“Might makes Right.” Islam has rendered that paradigm obsolete. The 21 century paradigm is “Right makes Might.” It is owned by the Muslim world. “Right makes Might” because for Muslims “Right is from an ultimate authority, Allah and their prophet Muhammad.

It is why, the United States has not prevailed in Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere the U.S. confronts Muslims. And most unfortunately, through out the United States. And the sad news, is that the Muslim remaking of America is just getting started.  The West, and in particular the United States, is at a loss as to how to battle this ever growing stronger Islamic power. Because the West, led by the United States is focused on traditional warfare resolution. Islam can only be defeated from a biblical understanding of prophecy. Then the nation militarily must conduct its warfare from this new paradigm.

Be mindful neighbors here in the states, and around the globe. Islam abhors life and worships death. “… based upon gardens graced with flowering streams…” Do not think this does not apply to Muslims living in the United States. They worship, dress, and think like there Muslim counterparts around the world. They are devoted to the prophet Muhammad, and his god, Allah. Who are sworn to our destruction. So they must be considered just as dangerous. When push comes to shove, who will they side with? Christians, Jews, people who acknowledge another religion, or no religion at all. A religion outside of Islam, is not tolerable to the teaching of the Qur’an. One must conclude then that they would side with our enemies, thus Muslims are our national and international enemy.

With a concentrated focus on Islam. As the most eminent threat of the 21 century to global economic security. In addition, Muslims are responsible for the currant global insurrections and insecurity which will grow like an incurable cancer. Unless the world community, specifically the United States wakes up to save itself from this barbaric menace. Which will be addressed by suggesting various actions that need to take place.The written word can accomplish so much. Travel unencumbered and without exhaustion.

The tall tale of sadness of America’s legacy

The United States Constitution guarantees free association and assembly. But only when free association and assembly is acceptable to the government. Rendering the Constitution to inspiring words on a piece of paper with no street application. Street application, as in the thoroughfare of complete unabridged movements of freedom.

Foe example, when Americans are denied the right travel to Cuba. They are denied their constitutional guarantees. The central reason for such denials is that the American government fears what Americans will discover about Cuba. Which is that the Cuban government provides the people of Cuba, with a superior form of government. For now, just a couple examples will be cited.

Unlike life here in the United States, people in Cuba are provide with a free education. No college loans to pay back making bankers rich at the expense of struggling students. Such educational government guarantees would have great appeal to the hundred of thousands of people with college loans. This government rather a Republican or Democratic administration will not allow Americans to experience such democratic freedoms. Which is to maximize ones potential, irrespective of money.

Every time this writer hears someone in local, state, or the federal governments talk about the value of life. I react, what hypocrisy! When they are perfectly willing to allow American citizens suffer, and die because they do not have sufficient health insurance or no health insurance. Illness in America, is a billion dollar industry. Doctors who think that they have some special dispensation to become rich off the illness of others. In the United States the medical system is a system for profit. Where medical treatment, and care is about money, and not cures for illness. Outrageous profits for doctors, hospital administrators, insurance companies and the pharmaceutical industry.

In Cuba illness is about finding cures and not about profit! Every Cuban is entitled to the very best care the state can provide. Such medical care is not based upon how much money you can afford to pay in order to receive treatment.

Of course, the United States will not allow Americans to travel to Cuba for fear that Americans will discover a superior health care system. If Americans, manage to get to Cuba, and return, criminal charges is what they’ll face. If their trip to Cuba comes to the governments attention.

The Cuban educational and health care system are considered by the world community to be a model for other nations.

While America’s educational, and health care systems are renowned for excellence, if they can be afforded. Despite a legacy of being renowned, I know of no nations in the world community that suggest that either system should serve as a world model.

With President Fidel Castro, absences from the this sphere of influence in Cuba. It appears his brother, Raul, will see to it that Fidel’s legacy of a people’s government for the world community will survive to be modeled. It is good to see revolutionaries like, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela modeling the Cuban model. And the success of Bolivians President Evo Morales in bringing democracy to Bolivia.

In the oval office of George W. Bush, the drums of change keep beating. Envisioning the erasing of a free peoples socialistic community. Where things are done to be useful and helpful. Replaced by a system of oppression and profit. Erroneously, declaring that the change would be for democracy. When in reality the whole capitalistic community has been lamenting the loss of billions of dollars from Fidel Castro’s successful revolution. Now they see a future opportunity to turn Cuba into a profit machine and to hell with the people. That is the tall tale of sadness that is America’s legacy; money over people!

George W. Bush, from his den of iniquity, the oval office, comes the beating of these words whenever the opportunity presents itself. I urge the Cuban people to work for democratic change on the island. We will support you in your effort to build a transitional government in Cuba, committed to democracy. And we will take note of those, in the currant Cuban regime, who obstruct your desire for a free Cuba. Such threats are common American rhetoric. That music will be played time and time again wherever capitalism can stiff the smell profits. If not Cuba, than Bolivia or Venezuela. And with the Olympic games on the horizon, China will get the nations democracy lectures. But its not democracy that interest America, but the potential for profits. Proof can be found in America’s corporate conglomerates eagerness to move shop to China. Cheap labor at the expense of America’s work force. In truth the people of either nation matter to their respective governments. If this, or any American government had any sense of decency, trade with China would be prohibited. Because China has a long history of human rights abuses, and that is according to the Bush administration. Who certainly are experts, when it comes to human rights abuses, at home, and around the world.

Such declarations by a world criminal like Bush comes as no surprise. Of course, Cuba is prepared to resist Bush and his collection of thugs from any successful return to oppression and profit at the peoples expense. And hopefully, so will all freedom seeking peoples.

This writer clergyman is available to discuss the politics of change. Some civic organizations meet for lunch. With a degree also in Political Science; this writer is available to discuss the politics of change. With the purposeful intent of creating controversy through out the audience. And when the turbulence calms, some will discover the merits of the speakers thesis. And as time permits, introducing the politics of Jesus Christ. Which makes such a discussion just as timely for Sunday morning church services. But with the politics of Jesus Christ, taking center stage. Working from there, to the nations secular political arena. Or picnics in a park, where the same thesis can be presented but in a far more relaxed atmosphere.

Political change is in the air but will it matter

The writer of Ecclesiastes wrote “… there is no new thing under the sun.” Because, “the thing that has been is that which it shall be ; and that which is done is that which shall be done,” Ecclesiastes 1:9. Seems that what is out there is waiting to be rediscovered and reimplemented. For this posting refection and action are the tools required as the teeter-totter tilts back and forth.

This writer has often wondered what it will take to get the people of Tampa Bay, and the nation to tilt that teeter totter in the peoples favor. It will happen when enough people realize that our government nationally, and locally does not serve the best interest of us common folk. Our government whether seated in Washington or in our state capitals is a government for the few who are rich and powerful. Against the many who struggling to secure a fair living. Just reflect on the struggles of the people to secure social and economic justice in this country. Those struggles have been against the rich and powerful. Those people have always been content to allow misery and suffering to occur among the general population. This writer could list a litany of struggles. Better for the reader to use ones imagination in order to identify with a struggle meaningful to the reader. Then reflect on how the struggle was resolved. If your struggle is waiting for resolution, how do you propose to secure that resolution? According to the writer of Ecclesiastes, these struggles have always been with humanity. They just get recycled every millennium or so. In some instances its just returned sooner with a new appearance. The end result is the same social and economic injustice for the masses of people here in the Tampa Bay community and across the nation.

For those who have read the last several postings, you know that Christ expects his body of believers to effect change. Failure to effect that change will have serious consequences. You can click on the calendar dates of January 16,17 and the 18 to read those postings. For they set the tone for this posting. Another option is to read some of the corresponding scripture associated with those postings. To wit, Matthew 25:31-46, capture the magnitude of the living that took place among Christians between verses 31-46. With Matthew 25:40 being singularly about effecting change.

The following posting picks up with commentary surrounding some hindrances for change. Followed with a suggestion for broadening ones perspective for releasing the power of the body of believers. Especially the power and influence waiting to spill over from the ministerial ability of women.

With a conclusion posting that suggested that the Kingdom of God might have fewer occupants than expected. With corresponding scriptures from Matthew 19:23-24. Defining wealth not so much from a monetary perspective but from a failure not to do the work of Christ. Doing the work of Christ is not a suggestion; rather it is a commandment. That is what one should learn by reading the three postings and all of the associated scriptures.

Successful teeter tottering for the cause of Christ.

What this bunch of presidential candidates promise “work hard earn less”

“When you have better profit growth than wage growth, you tend to have windfall tax revenues,” Diane Swonk, Mesirow Financial. Which is, what primary presidential politics is all about. Regardless of the political rhetoric from candidates representing both parties. Not one of them is worth your vote. Send the candidates a shock wave. boycott the primaries! That is the way to get what you want, need and deserve. Of course, a boycott of a few will not be felt, but by the millions that will be felt. So start by convincing one friend at a time. Who will in return will duplicate the process.

How is it that what Diane Swonk says is possible?

Create millions of low paying jobs. Tampa Bay and the entire state of Florida leads the way; it is a fact. Employees holding such jobs pay federal tax’s. It’s one reason corporate America, and the Bush administration value the “guest worker program.” Slash employee benefit packages. Force greater production from employees, expand commerce, result greater profits. (Read more about PCP’s through search tab, click, December 22 2007, on calendar. Their additional insight will be gained as why some things will never change).

Gross benefit to U.S. and the administration of, George W. Bush, is individuals paid 11% more in federal tax’s while corporate America paid 19% more in taxes. The difference is, Corporate honchos get richer while American employees became poorer. Think about it only a 8% differential between those who make thousands and those who make hundreds of thousands of dollars. Something is serious out of balance with Americas tax system.

And, corporate America will take good care of their “lap dogs,” by making the millionaires. When these politicians and bureaucrats leave office and are consumed by the private sector. All at the expense of the American work force.

Is it time to make those donkeys and elephants pull the cart carrying “us” to economic equality. After all, American employees have been pulling the cart for those animals long enough.

Remember the American motto, work hard earn less!

This is a tale of woe through out Tampa Bay and the nation. The reason consumer spending is down is because the American people have less money to spend because of the above and not rising gas prices. Rising gas prices, as we all know, just makes the problem worse.

Have you ever noticed that no matter how bleak or bright the economy is; most American employees struggle to make ends meet.

The question is,what are the employees of America going to to do about this sorry state of affairs? We rule! it is just a matter of getting organized and determined.

Economic equality is a civil right! So make it happen, America. Stop believing these presidential candidates representing both parties. Nothing significant will change until we decide to change America. who make

Do you recognize this sun of subsidiary planets

For the sake of story telling, truthful story telling, one often gets thrown to the Apes, Better understood by reading the postings, “What sort of a King do I seem to you to be O strangers”,(click 20 on calendar) and It is time to put the horse before the cart for to long the cart has pulled the horse.” (click 21)

For this posting, this writer needed an antagonist in order to challenge the protagonist.

The antagonist in this story is, Alice Weick, the nurse from Dubuque, Iowa, employed by Finely Hospital. And fired from her job, because she exercised two First Amendment guarantees under our Constitution; namely freedom to speak and assemble.

Nurse Weick was more than a skilled nurse providing excellent patient care. She was also the V.P. of the Service Employees International Union, local 199, hereafter, SEIU. In said capacity her union represented 300 nurses. They were seeking a modest pay increase. In addition they wanted clarification of the language in the contract to qualify “just cause” discipline. A union attack on the “Right to Work” clause. That many employees are forced to sign. It is a condition of their employment where “Right to Work” laws exist. Meaning employees can be fired at anytime for just or unjust cause. And at anytime without notice. Even after an exceptional work performance evaluation. (Now you know why its time to put the cart behind the horse).

Just as a story has an antagonist it also has a protagonist. This story has several protagonist. They are your employer or Corporate America, Federal and State governments. And Capitalism, because it is the Sun which provides energy, and life to its subsidiary planets as they circle the work place. With that energy they smash and crush all attempts for employee economic equality.

Each must be considered the enemy of employees everywhere. Because their goal is to minimize your standard of living. Every aspect of your standard of living from wages paid, hours worked, overtime pay, environmental and work place safety, health care, vacation and retirement. And perhaps the most important, the opportunity to enter into a written contract. Obligating the employer to address and satisfy employee interest in their standard of living agenda. (Now you know why some like the cart before the horse).

Many people think that it is settled law that nothing supersedes the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In that, this posting is primarily about the First Amendment guarantee of “speech” and assembly.” One might ask, how could Nurse Weick lose her job? Easily, because it is only doctrine written on paper. Today, a doctrine not upheld by the courts. Why? Because it runs contrary to the tenets of Capitalism. Capitalism is about Production, Commerce, and Profits, hereafter, PCP. Anything that interferes with the nations PCP’s is absolutely secondary. Even if it is etched in the United States Constitution. And it is precisely what caused this writer to announce to his professor (posting “It is time to put the horse before the cart for to long the cart has pulled the horse) that the United States Constitution is not worth the paper it is printed upon. A position this writer holds today simply because of the firing of Nurse Weick and many such other incidents.

The founding father’s of the nations sinister economic doctrine considered Capitalism to have its origins from none other than GOD. This GOD instructed humans to be “fruitful” “multiply” “subdue” and have “dominion,” Genesis 1:28. With that in mind, rest assured that there is nothing that Capitalist, and its subsidiary henchman fear more than the power of employee speech and assembly. Equally assured, these powers will do anything not to allow the PCP’s to be disturbed. So if God, established an economic structure to subdue your quest for economic equality. Then this GOD should be considered the enemy of all forced to be underlings to these powers. So why do so many people pledge their allegiance to such a GOD who has sentenced them to economic inequality?

Of course, God has not establishes an economic order to subdue our quest economic equality. Nor is God the enemy of the people. And, we should pledge our allegiance to God.

Christ constantly preached economic and social justice. For it is written, “Therefore, all things whatever you would that man should do to you, do you even so to them; for this is the law….,” Matthew 7:12. As noted, workers pictured as the cart, have been forced to pull the bigger, heavier and more powerful horse. Pictured as corporate conglomerates and government oppressors. Who give those conglomerates the authority to deny the people fair an economic justice.

In reality the workers represent the more powerful horse. Because there are more of us! It is just that we are splintered in pieces and left weak. Trampled upon by the united oppressors of social and economic justice. Who appear to be the powerful horse.

It is long been time for the workers to do unto the oppressors what they have done to us. Force them the “horse” to pull the “cart” For it is the law of God, Matthew 7:12! “I am come to send fire on the earth; what will I do, if it is already kindled”? Suppose you that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you NO! but rather division,” Luke 12:49 and 51.

What does all this mean. Simply you can not expect the “horse” who has enjoyed luxury and ease to share those benefits without a horrendous struggle.

Generally, I write a series of postings covering a theme. This series started on December 18 and continued each day through December 22, 2007. I did this because many are caught up with the next presidential campaigns seeking to represent their party in the 2008 election. With the focus of the postings suggesting that nothing will change. No matter which party occupies the White House, or as I like to think of it as the peoples house. This will be the case until the people act courageously with boldness. Or the masters will stay the same, and the cart will continue to pull the horse.

All these sinister forces work against the interest of working people through out Tampa Bay and the nation. They really need to be understood and replaced. If only this writer, had the money to give his full attention to the writing of some books. Because so much is left unsaid, with these postings, that needs to be put into print.

In the meantime this writer is available to lecture on such topics. As might be expected this writer clergyman, is always looking for a few revolutionaries to make the horse pull the cart. There are tactics to be learned by the few or the many. Kindling the fire of Luke 12:49 is truly an art.

And of course available write for your publication.

Rights of Man

Thomas Paine writing on the “Rights of Man” in 1791, “If from more wretched parts of the old world, we look at those which are in an advanced stage of improvement, we still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to furnish new pretences for revenues and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without tribute.”

In the more than two hundred years since Paine wrote on the rights of man little has changed. American governments, one administration after another, are still quick to put their “greedy hands” into the hard earned gains of the American public. Federal and state governments refuse to mandate by law equitable or living wage scales indexed to the cost of living. In a capitalistic driven society where only a small percentage of the population enjoy equitable or a living wage. With even a smaller percentage of people with incomes so great that equitable, or living wages is meaningless.

The rest of the American public, or the vast majority are considered expendable commodities. Valued for their cheap labor which which “generate” new revenues for the affluent, and taxes for all levels of governments. “Invention is continually exercised to furnish new pretenses for revenues and taxation.”

One would think that 215 years of history experienced, from generation to generation, by most people. That people who live from one paycheck to the next. Miss that paycheck, and most are immediately bankrupt. Plunged into economic ruin. One would think that people would demand a more equitable distribution of the wealth that they generate for others.

Visible to all, especially those who benefit from the exploitation of the American working public. Is the realization that the American working public will do nothing more than complain. It will remain so until our work force demands equitable or living wages as an unalienable civil right. Guaranteed by law, and as a civil right as the work force pursues “Life, “Liberty, and “Happiness.” It is unlawful for the government and their capitalistic proprietors to view the American working public as commodities which are expendable.

Working America, take heed, your government is always “watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without tribute.”

How bad are things in the United States? In the United States Congress, one congress person fully endorses an equitable or living wage indexed to the cost of living. His name is, Rep. Bernie Sanders. Hopefully, he will be elected to the United States Senate in November. Where there is “Hope there is “Anticipation” that one such person in the senate can lead to two, then three, and so on. Until America becomes what it should be, a land of equal opportunity.

War and Beyond

Most know that the Bush wars are costing Americans $8 billion every month. Recently, our Senate just tucked away another $70 billion dollars for those wars. What makes this so special is that such an allocation make history. That $70 billion was part of a Pentagon budget of $448 billion a history making allocation for the US military. Never in our history has so much money been budgeted for suffering and death.

When it comes to war, suffering, and death, Americans be dammed. At least that is the message given to Americans by this current government. For it has been said, actions reveal the heart and soul of a country. In the Bush budget for fiscal year 2007, the Department of Health and Human Services took a hit in the amount of $1.5 billion. That is from a proposed budget of $74 billion. This department is supposed to look after the nations health and welfare. Promoting services that contribute to our personal well being by eliminating suffering and death. When the nation manages to provide universal health care, it’ll most likely be administrated by our Health and Human Services Department. For fiscal year 2007, under the Bush government, their budget is roughly six times smaller than the budget for war, suffering, and death.

Perhaps the day will come when the American people will demand that the nations priority will be on the preservation of the nation’s health and well being. Which will result in the Pentagon having a budget six times smaller than the Department of Heath and Human Services.

For Americans life, and well being should be considered our civil right. Americans need to declare themselves to be fed up with war, suffering, and death. It will only occur when we as Americans make it our civil right.

It certainly will not happen with this current government. Because after all the anti war rhetoric from the Democrats in the Senate. They joined there Republican colleagues for a vote of 100 to 0 to add another $70 billion to the Bush war machine. According to the Associated Press this additional money for war, received “minimal debate.” So, when you hear Democrats getting all over President Bush and his fellow Republicans, remember it is only rhetoric. They are wedded to the same mission. Which is war, suffering, and death. But all that has a purpose which is world domination, and control of the world’s natural resources. And of course, mega bucks for the nations corporate conglomerates whom they really serve.

Wal-Mart and How it’s Done

This writer finds it astonishing that some newspapers placed on their front page in bold print “Wal*Mart drops drugs to $4.” Astonishing because so many ills plague the American people that are in need of front page exposure. Like economic equality for the American labor force.

For now, just a few thoughts concerning Wal*Mart. First, and foremost, this writer despises Wal*Mart for their gangster like profiteering. While refusing to pay their labor force a livable wage. When such proposals, manage to find their way on city council agenda’s, as was the case recently in Chicago, Illinois. Wal*Mart demanded the withdrawal of such a resolution that would make a livable wage law by 2010. They managed to succeed in Chicago because the corporation said that if such an resolution became law they would not build any more stores in Chicago. Bingo! the peoples elected servant. Democrat Mayor Daley’s had the resolution tabled. Democrat Richard Daley employed his first veto in his 17 years as Mayor against the working people of Chicago. The very people he says he serves. Worker’s at Wal*Mart, and such conglomerates would have had to pay their work force $10. per hour. In addition to $3. in a fringe package of benefits by 2110.

Valuable lessons can be learned from Wal*Mart perhaps the world’s most successful retailer. Apparently they approach manufactures, and tell them how much they will pay for certain products. Said manufactures naturally balk at such a process and refuse Wal*Mart. Only to go out of business because their competitors comply with Wal*Mart’s demands. So, what some companies do is shut down operations in the states, and open shop in China, India, and any number of other foreign countries.

For most readers, there is nothing new about such a strategy. It’s what the American labor force can learn from such an operation that deserves observation.

What can be said about Wal*Mart is that it best exemplifies what capitalism represents. Which is the accumulation wealth, with out any concern for the harm it may cause. Suggesting that the corporation has well defined goals, and is unified as to its executes of its goals. All tactics are on the table to be used to fulfill its mission. Geared for hurricane like destruction of anything, or anyone who gets in its way. This has allowed Wal*Mart to find many of its executives on the Forbes 400 list of billionaires. Wealth in the amount of 999 million no longer allows a pure capitalist access to that coveted Forbes listing.

The American labor force needs to model itself after its conquers. Developing well defined goals. A labor movement that is unified in seeing that the American worker gets their fair share of America’s economic wealth. This labor force must learn to move with category five hurricane precession destroying corporations and governments that would deny them their economic package.

The problem is that American work force is so splintered and unorganized as a movement. That it is almost laughable to think that the many could overwhelm the few in this economic struggle. The Wal*Marts who are the few. Compared to the many who are the American work force. We should be able to roll over them like a cyclone like storm surge. Because in economics, we learn from the Wal*Mart model, kindness does not work, but shear brutality gets the job done.

Perhaps someday a colorful humanists, and labor organizer like Joe Hill will step foreword. Who said on the eve of his execution, “do not mourn, organize!”

A Roman Justice in American Courts

Justita, the Roman Goddess of Justice, the symbol of moral fairness is suppose to characterize American jurisprudence. Often found somewhere on the grounds of our courthouses. The ardent observer will sometimes find Justita in the nations court rooms. This writer has found her in the sacred chambers of some of the nations jurists. Usually Justita, is prominently placed in the judges chambers.

This writer has often wondered just what message, if any, the judge was attempting to convey. Especially, since justice in America most often is the result of hard fought battles. Which required a whole lot of effort, and sacrifice.

Is Justitia wearing a blindfold, symbolizing that moral fairness is what America is all about? And the nation’s courts are present to enforce the nation’s commitment to moral fairness.

She is bear breasted, carrying a sword, and scales. Why does she carry a double edged sword in her right hand? Does this suggest the power of judicial force to humble the might of the most powerful in America. In Justita’s, left hand she carries her scales. Could this symbolize the power of reason? From reason, the scales are tipped, signifying the strength or outcome of the case.

When this writer finds himself in the chambers of his holiness, or her honor, the time is never right to ask what Lady Justice symbolizes to the honorable court. Because this writer, usually finds himself in chambers. Some sacred tenet has been challenged that has been deemed unchallengeable.

So if sometime the question can be asked, an assumption is hoped for that the public’s humble advocate would be asked, how do you see Lady Justice? The reply would be simple. She would drop her blindfold and wink. Symbolizing her approval, for advancing American morality as she intended.

As for her bare breast, without question, symbolizing the innocence’s and purity of her cause. Cutting asunder with her sword all those who would impede her sense of justice. And that eventually the scales will dip in favor of those who deserve justice. She wears the blindfold because she is ashamed of justice denied in American courts. Winks at every small victory!

That is the analogy waiting to be delivered by this writer, clergyman, and peoples advocate.

News that should matter

This writer wonders how many people will be “suckered” into accepting Bush’s call that, “Americans need to unite behind the war effort.” He followed that statement by declaring, “The safety of America depends on the outcome of the battle in the streets of Baghdad.”

The Bush war in Iraq has taken so many twists and turns as to root cause for the conflict that it does not deserve additional commentary. Except for the reiteration of comments in an earlier posting. “America did not ask for this war,” Bush from the oval office, 11 Sept. 2006. “Arabs don’t fight out of despair; they’re willing to die only to liberate their lands whether in Iraq or Palestine.” Al Jazeera

The truth is America did ask for that war. Hopefully, no commentary is necessary to support that statement because the world press has clearly established the cause and purpose of the Iraqi war. Even the nations pathetic press was able to publish this American tragedy.

Our Federal government has billions of dollars to spend making war and over throwing governments. We the people need to find ways to make the government start spending money for the benefit of the American people. Following are several short examples. Our government has set up a special task force with the mission of bringing “Democracy” to Cuba. Which should be seen as a worn out lie, used by politicians of both parties to secure the support of the American public. The United States wants Cuba for the nations corporate conglomerates. Before President Fidel Castro, defeat the American puppet regime of Batista. American corporate conglomerates controlled 90% of Cuba’s mines, 80% of the nations utilities, 50% of the railway system, 40% of the sugar production — worth billions. These criminals did what they could to maintain their prosperity in Cuba. The managed to get the government to provide millions of dollars in military aid. Which included, planes and tanks, ships, and military training. All these professional gangsters expected in return was for Batista to keep the Cuban people in check. Along comes Castro, and he boots these corporate profiteers out of his country. And that is what, the Cuban embargo is all about. It amounts to nothing more than pay back for lost billions. Along with the hope, that by impoverishing a nations people they would revolt. Returning Cuba to American dominance of the late 1950’s.

Such behavior has harmed the Cuban and American people. It must come to an end. Are Americans up to the task of ending these human rights violation. Of course, predator’s of such criminal activity should stand trial before the world court. Yes, anything that deprives an American of prosperity is a violation of our human rights The guilty parties should be help accountable in a court of justice.

The second example, comes from the Congressional Research Service which reports that the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have costs Americans $500 billion. That money was spent on establishing regional dominance militarily, and for securing the regions natural resources. Think what that money could have bought in the way of public services for the American people.

That last example, is an observation as to how these millions of dollars could benefit the American people. Most people have a wish list of some sort that they hope their government would help with. Just think in terms of your wish.

Teachers in Detroit, Michigan went on strike, 28 August 2006. The school board wanted them to accept a 5.5% reduction in pay. They settled their strike agreeing to a one year freeze. In the second and third years of the contract the teachers get a 1% raise, and in the last year they will get a 2.5 % raise.

Such meager pay increases is intolerable considering the importance of having an educated populace who will some day represent America’s interest. It is equally true that most Americans have interests that our national government needs to address in a more effective manner.

Remember that $500 billion diverted to the states could buy a lot of remedies for the American people. Like national health insurance for the 40 million Americans without health insurance. It could even help the states fund livable wage structures tied to inflation so that America’s work force gains economically instead of experiencing the converse. Which is what the teachers in Detroit are bound to experience, along with millions of other Americans.

Do not forget the billions spent on regime changes around the world. Including Cuba where more money is sure to be spent. Americans can have their cake and eat it too.

How to make Crime Pay

If the shoe were on the other foot, what would happen? Meaning that if the circumstances were different the out come would also be very different. This is especially true for those who make up the nation’s elite. As opposed to ordinary Americans, doing the best they can to survive.

This posting will focus on a situation were crimes were committed over a 50 year period, but the offender(s) escape jail. Which of course would not be true for most Americans, if they committed comparable crimes. Some people can commit horrendous crimes against humanity. Perhaps they will be fined, but even then the fines will be small. But for the situation to be discussed, fines did not apply, rather a mere reprimand was handed out.

In America crime really pays if you are a part of America’s elite society. The rules are different for people who are apart of America’s elite society. That is because they write the rules. They then sit as judge and jury as who is to be punished with prison time, fined, or reprimanded. Do not be fooled by the few elitists who do draw prison sentences. Those people who represent America’s elite society understand that from time to time they must drop the heavy hammer on their own. It is done more for image than effect. Attempting to persuade society that the rules apply equally to everybody. In the end they will do what ever is necessary to protect each other. Even if they have to turn their evils against an innocent American people which they do repeatedly with impunity.

Readers should think of themselves as being responsible for comparable harm over a fifty year period. Then think about comparable punishment. Really, readers do not even have put themselves into comparable situations. All one has to do is visit a local court house.There they are sure to find an incident were the offender will be severely punished. In some cases the offense was not that serious. One might speculate that the punishment did not fit the crime. Often in America, the more removed one is from being “elite” the greater the punishment.

Perhaps some readers are not comfortable in criminal court. Then visit the sacred halls of the court rooms where civil proceedings occur. Observe how severely the judicial system punishes people for certain civil violations. There you will also discover how great the disparity in justice can be for people. The disparity is measured by distance removed one is from being “elite.”

Recently, a federal judge told seven major tobacco companies that they had violated federal racketeering statutes. She told these criminals that she was bound by the appeals court to impose punishments that were “forward looking and not punishment for past actions.” If that does not have the smell of ‘elitism,” what does? Where in the criminal code does can one find a law that dictates “forward looking remedies which excuse past behavior?” They do not exist, unless your pockets are lined with great wealth. Meaning this powerful tobacco industry of executive powerhouses are part of this damnable “elite” society. Where standards of justice are measured according to wealth.

In the end the average American citizen will never wear the shoes of “elitism.” Therefore, our American society will remain unfair with the skew of inequality growing greater every day.

This writer is available to lecture on the above subject matter. Emphasizing the necessary strategies for the abolishment of “elitism” in America. A pure evil for the average hard working American.

The View from America

According to the Declaration of Independence, this new American government was about some self evident and unalienable rights Among those were life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To the securing of those self evident and unalienable rights,…”Governments are instituted among men.”These men according to the Declaration of Independence,.. “deriving their just powers from the governed.” It was important to the people who drafted the Declaration of Independence that the citizens have some clear understandings about human nature. All governments whether republics, democracies, conservative, or liberal. All share a commonality, they are all corrupt and self serving. To that end they wrote,…”That when any government becomes destructive of those ends (self evident, unalienable rights) it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government…” Equally important to the understanding of human nature. Was the realization that it would be easy for a few greedy and powerful few. To take control of the government and take it where it should not travel. The drafters of the Declaration of Independence attempted to create an alarm of warning. They wrote,…”and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”

This current government made up of republicans and democrats are not representative of common Americans. Who are in need of public services that meet the civil rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Some of those civil rights, that result in making life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness what the drafters intended. Are surely found in a livable wage package that includes health, vacation, retirement. Wages should be indexed to the cost of living. Which is more like $20 per hour. Health care should be a government expense; totally. Vacation time should be long enough to make recuperation possible. Certainly, not less than four weeks annually. Retirement should be factored into the cost of living index.

Who is going to pay for this? Our government! This current government can spend millions per hour making war in places like Iraq. This current government spends hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour engaging in the over throw of governments. Governments like that of Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

Are we as a people so conditioned into accepting government rhetoric that we have the best government ever devised? If that is an acceptable, public conclusion. Than the drafters of the Declaration of Independence were absolutely correct. People are more willing to suffer than to cast off the burdens that weigh them down,

We do not have the best government ever devised. We have the tools for creating the best government ever devised. It’s our birth right guaranteed by law. As Americans, we are commanded to alter, and abolish any government, that is not responsive to the dictates of the governed. Much work needs to be done! This American government serves the needs of the few very rich and powerful. It has been that way since the countries inception. The many serve the monetary needs of the few. It is time for a change.

Murder freely when connected with Power and Influence

The previous posting chronicled the fate of a restaurateur. Who has charged, and prosecuted for manslaughter, by the state for killing a man who robed him. The restaurateur operated a small business that had the capacity to serve customers at eight tables. The owner did not have the power of a board of directors with connections and support from the state to protect him.

The young mother expecting her second child who was robed of her life by a hospital, but the killer in this chronicle is well insulated from any punishment.

What do these two chronicles have in common? The restaurateur, just an ordinary guy trying to earn a buck. The young mother, just an ordinary woman wanting nothing more than to be a mother for the second time. The restaurateur prosecuted for being an ordinary guy without power and influence. And of course, mother, and her husband unable to experience justice in criminal prosecution because of power and influence.

A young women goes into pre-term labor. She is rushed to the hospital at around noon and is pronounced dead by 3 PM.

In order to make a long chronicle short. She was given a dangerous drug. A dose four times stronger than required. The drug killed her, and the hospital was responsible for her murder.

When such occurrences happen, by law the hospital must report such incidences.

The family, of the mother of a two year old daughter, now deceased, will be denied justice because there will be no criminal prosecution. Instead the mothers murder was turned over to a state administrative agency.

Not only will there not be any criminal prosecution for wrongful death, the hospital was not even fined!!! The reason the state administrative agency provided for not fining the hospital. The state said, the hospital has implemented corrective measures; thus avoiding such murders in the future. At least one person was placed on administrative leave. But the hospital said, they expect people on administrative leave to return to work. Because no intentional wrong was discovered, by those associated with her murder. The young mother who leaves behind a husband, and a two year old daughter were told that her murder was an error.

One or more people associated with that hospital should have been charge and prosecuted for manslaughter. Manslaughter is define by Blacks Law Dictionary as an unlawful killing of a another person without malice aforethought.

Most certainly, the young husband will sue the hospital for wrongful death and prevail. Of course, the hospital with the backing of the state will resist, and drag the case out for maybe decades. Only causing years of anguish for her husband and daughter.

As stated in the previous chronicle the intent was to illustrate the disparity in justice for ordinary people and those connected with power and influence. It is so common place in our American society that few are fully aware how poorly ordinary people are treated by American democracy. With its frontal horns of capitalism and evangelical fundamental extremism religion. Indeed, it is a three headed beast that needs to be put to sleep.

It could be very different; it is just a matter focus and determination.

Double Standards

The United States likes for American citizens to think of the nation as a country where justice is equal. A nation where there is no disparity shown under American law. Is there an American citizen any where in the nation, who with confidence believes that statement?

Yet Americans, allow so many disparities in the nations jurisprudence to go unchallenged. So this writer has decided to chronicle two incidences showing showing such disparities in law with two separate postings. As the chronicles are developed, picture yourself as the restaurateur who was robbed and prosecuted. Or, the victim whose life was lost, but the state said, it was an unfortunate oversight.

The owner of a small restaurant that sat customers at eight tables. Where he functioned as chef and chief bottle washer. Meaning of course, that every task in such an operation fell upon him which included any renovations.

One late night after his restaurant closed. He was in the midst of remodeling his restaurant. Already exhausted from a long days work, he decided to take a break from work. He went to his car where he was approached by a African American with a criminal record. He was forced to return to the inside of his business where he was robbed. As the thief left his business establishment, he called 911. He then got into his car looking for the thief. He spotted the thief. He drove down the one way street with the thief approaching. Suddenly he swerved directly into the thief, killing the 24 year old criminal.

The State Attorney and his prosecutorial staff were divided as to what statute under Florida law to charge the restaurateur with. Some members of the state attorney’s staff argued for charging him with second degree murder. Finally, they decided upon the criminal crime of manslaughter.

His case went to trial where the jury acquitted him.

After the acquittal, the State Attorney, said this was a case that had to be tried.

Of course, the State Attorney ignored the reality that our Constitution provides Americans with the right to be safe and secure within their premises. In addition a recently enacted Florida law provides the same guarantees. The case should never have been tried.
