Although parables are, and have always been well-meaning, life within the “parameters” of (free will), is not a parable.
Barack Obama’s agenda, since childhood has always been to dismantle the Constitution of the United States.
Obama’s father, an individual (as I know him) from Obama’s book; “Dreams from my Father,” written, (in my opinion), by “William Ayres” was unequivocally “anti-establishment” and “anti-government.”
Not that Barack Obama’s father in actuality had anything to do with Berry’s upbringing, other than being a muse…
According to Webster: “muse,” (in context) v. A source of inspiration.
FYI, (in my opinion), Inspiration without ability or substance ends in imagination.
..and of course, again (in my considered opinion), no Homo sapien on this planet has more imagination than a socialistic ideologue.
Thank God for Scholarships and Welfare…
Barack Obama’s mother was an academic and a communist who like all communists, “vigilantly disapprove” of capitalism, except for when capitalism picks up the check for their lives.
Homo sapiens, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on whether or not you’re an enthusiastic glass “half-full” person or a complacent glass “half empty” milquetoast, we all judge, as judging is at the core of our nature.
Need more proof? At the close of my last paragraph ending in the word “nature,” my (word count) was one hundred and ninety-nine, with every bit of my blather judgmental to some degree.
That’s what we do, judging is so incorporated into our daily lives that few of us, if any, realize that we are judging others until or unless someone calls us on it.
For me, (holding nothing back), judging begins the moment I opened my eyes in the morning, is it time to get out of bed, I have to decide, yea or nay?
When my feet hit the floor, is the floor too cold? Is it too early to let Sadie out?
I turned to the weather Channel last thing before retiring the tube last evening to learn that it would be a clear night with a low of 56°, which of course isn’t too shabby when one of yer’ concerns is a late cold snap because you’ve got seeds in the ground.
So of course when I was awakened this morning at 4:45 by raindrops hitting my bedroom window, I immediately “judged” the weather Channel to be laden with imbeciles.
Attractive imbeciles, ..albeit imbeciles nonetheless.
Which of course is the reasons I keep a large round rock in my front yard, ..when the rock is dry, ..I know the sun is out, when the rock is wet, ..I know it’s raining and when the rock is white, – well you get the idea. 🙂
We all make judgments every day, do I want cream cheese or jelly on my bagel?
Is there enough room to pass that car or truck before I meet oncoming traffic?
Should I pick up a hitchhiker?
Do I want pork chops or chicken for dinner?
Do I think our current leaders are serving the country well?
Question: So if I’m aware that I am judgmental, why don’t I quit being judgmental?
When I was twenty-eight, cigarettes were $.35 a pack and every bit as unhealthy then as they are now, so I gave ‘em up, an accomplishment that required maybe two seconds.
At thirty-five I decided that investing in alcohol provided no dividend, so I quit drinking and I haven’t missed it a minute.
I didn’t give up frequenting taverns, playing pool or riding my motorcycle, I simply reinvented myself to participate with full knowledge of my surroundings. It was frightening for a while, but then since I was 6 foot five and weighed 280 pounds, no one ever noticed.
Giving up cigarettes and alcohol was easy, as cigarettes and alcohol are not a part of humanity – making judgments is.
The truth will light your way, I’ll be back tomorrow
Matthew, Chapter 7, Verses, One through Five.
1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
