Cognitive Dissonance or Uncomfortable Moments of Silence



The study of politics and governments are an essential pretext to understanding your place and responsibilities as a citizen of the world. , not just these United States of America, this is Earth's current state of affairs.
I want to know why we as America's people must act as if we have no need to understand our place in this world and how to make a difference that is beneficial to all humanity.
Why these rights where written and whom did the 'founding fathers' have in mind when this document came together.
What is amazing about the Constitution of the United States is that out of the 4400 words, Pennsylvania is misspelled.
What is actually fascinating, of which I did not know, not until watching the movie " The Pursuit of Happyness," with Will Smith and his son, was the fact that we have the right to 'pursue' happiness, which is our right, just that Thomas Jefferson, who by the way did not sign the Constitution, specifically choose to use this word, pursue happiness.
Just a thought...
This is the oldest living document that other countries use to model their own concept of the constitution for their countries. Ours is a living document, which evolves as each new generation moves into its place in history. This particular document guarantees our rights to freedom of speech without reprisal of harm. Nevertheless, the dichotomy of this freedom is that we have no actual boundaries with our concept of freedom. We do go far with our liberties, just think about all of the people throughout history who have died, or been murdered, and or lynched in the name of " Freedom," or how nations are constructed under the guise of democracy or is it' 'demonocracy,' ( infowars.com). What is ironic in the English syntax is that the word 'America' is Arabic in its general structural make up. The root word being 'Amir', which means leader, to lead to be an example of good character and display the criteria of humanitarian tendency. 
So, where are we leading the rest of the world? Alternatively, where do we hope to go ourselves?
I read somewhere  that in order to lead others, one must be able to follow orders, or was it to be able to control others, one needs to be able to control yourself, but either way I trust you understand.

Bible: Word of Men? Part 1

Every one now must know about the witch hunt of Muslim American(s), what appears to be overlooked is that Muslims have helped  with forty (40%) of the prevention of terrorist plots which could have been deadly.

“History is written by the victors.”   Sir Winston Churchill. (1874-1965). He also said:

“You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

“Arabia was idolatrous when, six centuries after Jesus, Muhammad introduced the worship of the God of Abraham, of Ishmael, of Moses, and Jesus - Muhammad declared that there was none but one God who had no father, no son and that the trinity imported”  Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821). On the face of the topic the majority of American's, citizens of the world, and just about every priest and parson in Christendom all agree that Islam is a manufactured religion or school of thought. Long story, made short, we have now come to the new world order enemy.  In addition, George Bernard Shaw stated:

“If any religion had the chance of ruling over England, nay Europe within the next hundred years, it could be Islam “As mentioned, this topic takes time and needs a point by point discussion in order for society and you, dear reader to not only understand, but be able to implement the facts in your life. Initially, wanting to list similarities between the world’s three major faiths, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Nevertheless, decided to go with Christianity, as Judaism actually denies "Jesus," (Isa Ala'ih as salaam, in Arabic), as the school of thought agrees. (Correct me)

There are people who do believe in Jesus Christ. They believe that he was the promised Messiah. Also, his Ascension and his Second Advent or return, rule and control. Christianity is ranked as the largest religion in the world today with approximately 2 billion adherents. (According to "Christianity Today.com website. Religion.com states in the United Kingdom, there are fifty-one million as of 1997. As of March 10, 2011, one-fifth of the world's population professes followers of Al-Islam, known as Muslim(s) Yet; both of these groups are trapped on the subject of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The faith and salvation of the first group depends on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, but the other, the "accursed: death on the cross is a negation of even his prophethood, according to " Deuteronomy 18:20: Kings James Bible, 1972."

 Muslim belief is in the Holy Quran, The Divine Word of God (Allah, in Arabic), declares in the empathic terms that the Jews did not kill “Jesus,” nor crucifies him. Furthermore, Muslims love and revere Jesus Christ to such an extent the thought of him being led to the cross is repugnant to us. How could God allow His Chosen Messenger, Jesus Christ to bear the disgrace and nakedness of the cross!? As I type this thought, or letter, which is mostly what was learned from Sheik Ahmed Deedat, (July 1, 1918 – August 8, 2005), of whom I credit with making comparative religious studies a work of art. If you have never heard or seen this man in action, just go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhazm0UdlTc 

 From the beginning, there were doubts long before the birth of Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (p.b.u.h=peace be upon him). Historically speaking that is, among early Christian sects and various schools of thought about the Crucifixion of Christ.  Some did not believe that Christ was crucified on the cross. The "Basilidians,"2nd Century. A Gnostic sect founded by Basilides of Alexandria, Egypt 2nd century, who claimed to have received his gospels, a gospel is a written account that describes the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus. In a more general sense, the term "gospel" may refer to the Good News message of the New Testament. It is primarily used in reference to the four Canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. However, the term is also used to refer to the Synoptic gospels, the Apocryphal gospels, the Non-canonical gospels, the Jewish gospels and the Gnostic gospels. (Wikipedia), Basilides believed he received his gospels were given to him from Peter, also believed that someone else was subsisted for Christ on the cross. As there were historically sixteen 'crucified Christ’s,' more on this topic at a later, date and time.

Y ou have to see this movie

I was watching CNN this Am, and was presented with a very beautiful film,which I think is long overdue in being viewed in the USA. I watched the trailer,and found myself immersed in the story, almost immediately, as these are similar experiences we as Muslims,from time to time have had to endure. So,please if you are reading this, educate yourself by going to the theater and buying a ticket to this film

Awards night...

After watching the Awards last evening, I have to say this, European actors, play pseudo archetype roles, where the emotional depth has no strong contextual attachment to the character's 'johari window,' and we as people of color are only recognized and applauded when and if we denigrate ourselves within the standard of rude and outright animals. Remember Denzel had to play an evil cop in Training Day, Halle Berry had to screw around with 'Billy Bob Thornton, just to get noticed by Hollywood. Maybe we need to start our own Grammy awards ceremony. And call it the Hattie McDaniel award. Or Paul Robeson ceremony...

We are rewarded for the concept of inhumane behavior, ....Hollywood.... deems appropriate. Now do not get me wrong, I love acting, and movies. However, to quote ....Paul Mooney...., .."Black is the new white......."we are skiing in the Alps, roller blading down 125th street. Yet, when heading downtown in the loop, every morning, I see now black people. Occasionally, on e or two of us do happen to show up. But, very rarely. And when I just happen to notice"us," it appears like we are leaving work. Just a thought and an eerie observation...

We have come a long way. Yet, we have not acknowledged our successes.
We still treat each other as enemies; we carry ourselves as if we have no future or stake in this society. We have to change what is in our hearts in order for the attribute to take a positive effect on our minds. Now, there are a number of things, which to be alluded to, but what is required is constructive discussion on what our description must be. We need to know what should be expected of us as men and women, our children need to understand their role in the family and that education will help change our perception of self and our place in this world will become ever clearer. We where teachers of men, instructors of students, who wanted to learn. Who understood, that college was designed to help you to think.

What happened? Have we fallen so far from what g_d, wanted for us, that most of us, if not all could only find solace in entertaining the rest of the populace? I once read, yet, for the love of me, do not remember where, that one cannot find the right place if one starts off in the wrong direction. Maybe this is true, Unless, we drop our pride long enough to ask for directions. I am so proud of us and all the fantastic achievements under our belts. But, what happened to all of the inventors and scientists and patents our ancestors we so prolific at bringing to the table?

Just a thought...what do you think?
