Welcome to the Great Physician
Office hours are as you come,
He’s a Specialist in all problems
And His day is never done.
He can heal a heart that’s broken
He can mend the spirit, too,
No matter what your ailment
He does have the cure for you.
His fee for service never alters
He serves rich and poor as well,
He’s our one chance for Salvation,
He alone saves us from Hell.
There’s no fee for services rendered
All He asks is that we believe,
That He bled and died to save us
And all His blessings we will receive.
Do you have a special problem
That is troubling you this hour?

.
Then just simply leave it with Him
You can find no greater power.
Don’t delay in seeking treatment
Please, my friend, don’t hesitate,
For His office is soon closing
And He’ll shut and lock the gate.
I wouldn’t want you to suffer
While the Doctor’s so close by,
Your whole life will be much better
If my Physician you will try.
In Case of Emergencies . . .

 You don’t need anyone else

You know what’s right for you.

and the dreams you hold.

You may be hesitant at times,

even fearful to go on,

but that’s a natural feeling

all of us go through.

What you need to remember

is what means the most to you

and how to keep alive your

hopes

and dreams.

Then, with all the greatness

that is within you,

LET’S SHOW our love while we can, while people need us. That is something I learnt from an incident in Bhopal .

.

I saw a little boy daily near the Hanuman temple, always in a white tee and black pants, with a small Hanuman pendant around his neck.

.

He sat with a basket of fresh floral garlands. Be it at six in the morning or nine at night, he would try his very hardest to sell his wares.

.

I was a frequent temple goer and each time the boy would ask me earnestly to buy a garland. But somehow I never did. Even when I came out, he would follow me to my car, begging me to buy one at least.

.

Other boys sold flowers too, but none as persistently as he. I went back to the temple recently after a gap of some months.

.

The boy was there, seated exactly as before. I tried to avoid his gaze(look), assuming that he would follow me. But he did not budge(move).

.

I went inside the temple and came back. But the boy made no effort to sell his garlands.

.

I thought he was angry or just showing his own self-respect.

.

I suddenly missed the communication I always had with this unknown boy and went to him. He looked at me but did not speak.

.

This was strange. I gathered courage and asked: “Bhaiya, why are you not asking me to buy your garlands?”

.

He said, “Didi, why should I ask? You are rich but you can’t spend five rupees on my garland. Anyway

Election  Night  2012

.

President Barack Obama’s re-election in the United States was watched by millions around the world. People, including world leaders, congratulated him on his success. In addition, they voiced their feelings and presented their opinions. Here’s a sampling of global reaction:

. . . . . .

 

“When you were elected in 2008, you inspired the world with a call to take responsibility for the problems we face as global citizens. Since then, you have made earnest efforts to live up to that great hope and trust placed in you by the American public. I believe you have been re-elected now in recognition of that effort.” — the Dalai Lama.

___ 

“Congratulations to Barack. I’ve enjoyed working with him, I think he’s a very successful U.S. president and I look forward to working with him in the future.”— British Prime Minister David Cameron.

___

“Your re-election is a clear choice in favor of an America that is open, unified, completely engaged in the international scene and conscious of the challenges facing our planet: peace, the economy and the environment.” — French President Francois Hollande.

___

Pope Benedict XVI sent a message to Obama expressing hope that “ideals of liberty and justice, which guided the founders of the U.S.A., may continue to shine on the road ahead for the nation.” — Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi.

___

The trust that the American people wanted to renew in you will allow the international community, Europe and Italy to benefit from your leadership without interruptions. … With your confirmation at the White House, Italy knows it can count on a strong and united America.” — Italian Premier Mario Monti.

____

“As a mother and as a grandmother who raises boy children, I think that the symbolism of having a black man occupy the highest office is something that can make my children very aspirational to know that this is possible, you know, in their lifetime.” — Zindzi Mandela, daughter of former South African President Nelson Mandela.

___

“I will continue to work with President Obama to preserve the strategic interests of Israel’s citizens.” — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

___

“The bond between Europe and North America, based upon the shared values on which our alliance was founded over 60 years ago, remains as strong, and as important to the preservation of Euro-Atlantic peace and security, as ever. President Obama has demonstrated outstanding leadership in maintaining this vital bond.” — NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

The United Nations said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon “warmly congratulates” Obama on his victory and looks forward to continuing to work with his administration on the many global

If you don’t vote, don’t complain!

.

A Letter to the Undecided Voter

.

–Monica Bauer

Playwright and Political Science Professor;

Writing Fellow at Quinnipiac University

.

.

I know what you’re looking for today. Something that will help you make up your mind that is not about mudslinging or some trivial gaffe a candidate made, or a quote taken way out of context. I respect that you are still thinking about things, and looking for a bit of truth in a season of exaggerations and partisanship.

.

I spent some years training to be a political scientist. We’re a strange bunch. We actually try to separate fact from fiction. And although most of us are partisan, we don’t like the mudslinging, the ‘gotcha” politics, or the trivial pursuit politics any more than you do.

.

.

The economy is an issue that is important to everybody, but the economy is incredibly confusing right now. It’s absolutely true and easy to demonstrate to everybody, that the economy has just been through the biggest crisis in American history since the Great Depression. It’s absolutely true that things are getting better slowly, although some purely partisan folks do not want to believe the facts. But I don’t think you are a dedicated watcher of Fox News, or a dedicated listener to Rush Limbaugh; if you were, you would not be Undecided.

.

So the question you might want to think about is, which of these two candidates for President has the better plan to move the economy forward. But that’s a confusing thing to wrap your arms around, because it is so, so easy to promise. And we know that Presidents cannot always keep their promises, and sometimes they make promises they know they cannot keep, just to get our vote.

.

I want to offer you another way of looking at this. Have you ever raised a child, or a puppy? The best way is through “positive reinforcement.” You can get the behavior you want the next time, by rewarding the child, or the puppy, whenever they do something good. We get the behavior we reward, don’t we? This is as true in politics as it is anywhere else.

.

Now, you might say to yourself, “I wish President Obama had done a better job making the economy grow faster.” And most of us would agree with you. But if you vote based on that, to “give the other Party a chance,” your vote will be rewarding some behavior I don’t think that you approve of, behavior that’s bad for our politics as a whole.

.

Because no matter how much we think we are voting for a person, a particular candidate’s personality or background, as a political scientist I can assure you that you are also voting for a political party. Whichever party wins will claim that you voted to give your stamp of approval not just to Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, but to a whole set of ideas. But even further; you will be rewarding behavior that you are likely to see again and again.

.

Here is the behavior pattern that keeps me up nights, not just as a partisan, but as a political scientist. When we have a presidential election in this country, the party that loses is supposed to give some cooperation to the party that wins. The idea is, the people have spoken. They have made their decision. This is the direction that the voters want. In 2000, the election was bitterly disputed. The Supreme Court had to step in. The Democrats won the vote nationwide, but they lost Florida by fewer than 600 votes, in a disputed recount. Angry Democrats could have banded together to oppose, on principle, every single thing President Bush wanted to achieve. They could have made it their only mission, to make President Bush a one-term President. But that’s not what happened. Senator Ted Kennedy reached out to Bush, and together they passed the No Child Left Behind legislation. When Bush wanted to take the country to war against Iraq, on flimsy evidence that turned out to be wrong, many Democrats supported him to keep the country unified after 9-11.

.

But in 2008, when the Democrats won in an election that was not disputed, a big win in the popular vote and a huge win in the Electoral College, the Republican Party response was clear, and completely out in the open. The number one goal of the Republican Party became, not to seek some compromises, not to get some of their ideas into public policy through trying to influence lawmaking when they could, but to make Barack Obama “a one-term President.” You can see Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell say this in public on You Tube.

.

And this is what happened, without dispute, without spin. This is history. The Republican Party, especially in the House of Representatives, agreed to block the President’s plans with total unity. They had all pledged never to raise taxes, even on millionaires, for any reason, no matter how reasonable. Whatever the President proposed, even if he used Republican ideas (”Obamacare” is just “Romneycare” on a national level), was denounced as radical socialism. And they stuck to their guns.

.

After 2010, the President was blocked over and over again, by a one-two punch. The House went to a Republican majority in 2010, and they stood against even the ordinary votes that were needed to keep the government going, such as raising the debt ceiling. This was the most partisan Congress in the history of the House of Representatives. Never before had we seen routine votes turned into pure obstructionism. In the 2010 elections, moderate Republican senators such as the highly regarded Dick Lugar faced defeat simply because they had worked with Democrats in a bipartisan way. Moderate Republicans got the message, and either moved to become more partisan and less likely to reach across the aisle like Senator John McCain, or they announced their retirement, like Senator Olympia Snowe.

.

If you, Undecided, reward this behavior by giving them your vote, you may see it as a simple protest vote against
