I consider anything for a post. I get my inspiration for writing posts from all over, even from just having an ordinary conversation, or even a commercial. Last night blogger Ty posed a question asked by her innocent little five year old back to us. Children are the real visionaries, (not Kanye West), and we as parents should pay close attention to them.

Ty’s comment was; *The monkey post* (which is well worth reading, I don’t know why most of you skipped over it!)

“A few days my 5 year old asked me what magical power i would like….to breathe fire, to be invincible or to have a magical sword that could kill anything…it stumped me….it was a tough question, so i pose it to you all…which would u like?”

I answered the question on the post and I would also like you to answer as well, as well as a few questions of my own.

Question#1- What would you all do if you were in a position of power and could make any law at your command, or remove certain laws, what would you do?

My answer is, I would first attack child abuse and the predators of children.

Recently in Jamaica a 7 year old little boy was abducted and raped repeatedly by a thirty year old man in Jamaica. Jamaicans of course did street justice and killed the man, allegedly, and his brother who was with him when the community caught him was severely beaten as well (not sure if he did anything or was aware of what his heartless sibling did) and is now in police custody. I was sad to read this story and it brought me back to another story of a young boy that I heard of and many more stories which people have confided to me about.

As you all know I was once a part of the Zion /Revival scene, which is a spiritual church, this is what it is called in Jamaica. A Lady who was a part of the church and who was my client told me a very disturbing story once. She also is a Butch Lesbian and was also molested or seduced at 16 years old by a Madda (spiritual leader) woman in Jamaica, which resulted into her being gay to the tune of having seven women all at once as her girlfriends, more on her story another time.

She told me the story of a young boy in Jamaica who was six years old at the time. This is rural Jamaica, the family at times did not have money to cook and so their church leader (a pastor who does divination and Obeah work) as is called in Zion would provide for them if they called on him.

The little boy was sent  Leaders compound for yam for his family to cook, he went, walking there of course. He came back into a taxi, which was strange, as the mother saw the taxi pull up to her yard and her boy as he come out, fell to the ground, collapsing with blood gushing from his pants bottom which was stuffed with news paper. The Leader had raped the boy and stuffed his painful bottom with news paper and placed him into a taxi with the yam and sent him home!

Because of fear, no one approached him for what he had done, this son of a bitch was a known Obeah man in the community, nobody did anything to him, and he is still on the revival scene even to this day. The boy is now a grown man, a grown homosexual man, very effeminate one and he still is a part of revival Zion. When ever he is in any church dancing, clapping and singing, even jumping Zion and his abuser walks in, he turns into a little child and sits in a corner, depressed and almost not able to function for the rest of the day.

These things happens all the while, everywhere, not only Jamaica, and most gays that I know have been abused, most!

What would I do in a position of power to All child molesters not only of boys but of little girls also?

When they are discovered, The men I would castrate, also cutting out their tongues and chopping their arms, blinding them even, and the women would also get some type of torture and losing of limbs, then I would pack them one by one as they are found out into an institution for life, living with each other until they died a wicked horrible death. The torture would be done publicly. If I were in a position of power, dealing with child predators and rapist of any kind, is what I would first attack. Can you imagine the humiliation of rape, the defenseless feeling a person have when subjected to this atrocity while it is being done to them, the feeling of being over powered and forced to do unforgivable things?

When a wife or a girlfriend says no and the husband or boyfriend forces the act, it is RAPE!

This is done very often in Jamaica, but the women takes it as love.

 

There was a program called to catch a predator, I believe it was one of the best programs on television, you would be amazed the type of sick, perverted people within society!

So I ask you today, to answer this question along with little Yw’s questions, so cute, lol.

What would you do?

What would you do if think a friends child is being abused?

What would you do faced with sexual harassment from the CEO of the company you work for, and the job pays very well ?

What would you do if your parent told you that they are gay and leaving the marriage?

What would you do when asked to vote for religion to be taught in schools  or spirituality, what would be your vote and why?

What would you do, if offered fame but with a very dirty cost, for example sacrifice a friend or family member?

What would you do if you got the chance to punish a wicked enemy without fear prosecution?

What would you do with a Klondike bar (lol)?

My 8 year old is on a would you rather kick as well. We must go through about twenty questions such as these a day. I would definitely pick invincible (as long as it did not result in immortality)

What would you do if think a friends child is being abused?~~I would explain the situation to someone who is professionally trained to recognize these situations to make sure I am not way off base then take my concerns and a slip resistant-non negotiable-effective immediately plan of action to my friend to end the abuse and make sure it never happens again.

What would you do faced with sexual harassment from the CEO of the company you wort for, and the job pays very well ?~~Leave. Money is nothing. End of story.

What would you do if your parent told you that they are gay and leaving the marriage?~~My parents are already divorced, my mother a VERY STAUNCH catholic if she came to me with that I might think she was an alien robot or something. If my dad came to me with it…might not be surprised (shh…..I used to think his new wife looked a little masculine), my dad has already put my sister and I through a lot with his promiscuity, homosexuality would just sort of round out the spectrum. End of the day he’s still my dad, I’d still love and support him.

What would you do when asked to vote for religion to be taught in schools or spirituality, what would be your vote and why?~~I have kind of mixed feelings about this. I feel as though spirituality should be something learned from family, friends and other such loved ones. I do think that religion should be studied, not as in how to practice, ins and outs how tos, but studied as one studies culture, or history, or math. I think studying different religions and their teachings academically is important learning (it has helped me understand much about the world and how man has developed). Spirituality should be shared and learned personally, as part of you and how you develop as a person (this all made sense in my head not sure if it translates to writing very well). Plus a majority of children dislike school very much, I wouldn’t want them to lump spirituality in with algebra and mystery meat lunches and other such unpleasant things they experience while there.

What would you do, if offered fame but with a very dirty cost, for example sacrifice a friend or family member?~~never fame like money it nothing. mi done talk.

What would you do if you got the chance to punish a wicked enemy without fear prosecution?~~I would heap the just punishment on their head till I was weak in the knees. Notice the word just.

What would you do with a Klondike bar (lol)?~~well…baby would rather have a mango, but ice cream is yummy too.

Happy day everyone!

This post should linger because that is a lot of “what would you do” questions.

To answer baby Ty/Yw question…I would want the power of invincibility. That answer should answer the rest of what ifs…with such a power I could become the equalizer for justice against the demons we have here in this realm.

The question about knowing of a child molester…if me sense it I’m bawling it out…if it don’t go like that then who cares because prevent better than cure.

Hailings ES peeps…I’m on a self appointed blog recess…I’m slowly recovering and me jobless so I don’t feel like talking much.

Good afternoon everyone!

If I could have a superpower, I think I would like to be able to become invisible whenever I choose. Ooh, the things you could learn about people when they think you are not there. Plus, if anyone tried to attack me, I’d just “poof” myself into invisibility and they wouldn’t be able to find me allowing me to sneak attack them from behind. BAM! One good chop on the back of their head. LOL!

If I found out for sure that a friend of mine’s child was being abused, the first thing I would do is tell me friend and implore them to go to the authorities to have the pervert arrested. If justice somehow could not prevail, then we just simply gather up a group of big, strapping friends in the middle of the night and pay the pervert a little visit and handle it. I am SOOOO not a violent person and generally hate and find very little use for violence, but my one exception is for predators who prey on women and children.

If my boss or CEO was sexually harassing me at work, that is a very tough situation. Realistically, I would probably just look for another job and quit. But I would like to think I’d be able to document every advance or comment he makes to me by saving every email, voicemail, secret recordings (yes, I’d be recording every interaction with him alone) and once I’ve gathered my evidence. Take it to HR and file a complaint and ask that he be disciplined and I be transferred out of his department . Should I get fired or demoted in the process, then I have to quit and file a lawsuit. But that is an ideal situation. Realistically, I’d have to have the stomach for a long court battle and very tight financial support from elsewhere.

If one of my parents told me that they were gay and leaving the marriage, I would surely think that this parent has lost his/her mind. Even though my father is deceased, I just couldn’t imagine either of my parents telling me something like that. But I guess in a situation like that, separation is best, What is the point of being married to a gay spouse when you’re not gay?

I would vote no for religion and/or spirituality to be taught in schools. I think those are two very personal and subjective things. Since I live in a country where there are so many religions and belief systems it would be hard to do that in an equitable way (I think) and I wouldn’t want someone who believes in a religion that I don’t believe in teaching my kids their beliefs. I will teach my kids what I think they need to know at home. I do agree with things like general ethics, human rights education, conflict resolution, peace education, and social-emotional learning being taught in schools. Absolutely for that.

I would never sacrifice a friend or family member for gain, and especially not for fame. I’ve never really been interested in being famous (I much prefer my privacy).

If I had the chance to punish an enemy without persecution, I simply would just want them to understand and feel whatever pain or hurt that they caused me. Nothing more and nothing less, but if I felt that they had some sort of conscience about what they did or were willing to repair and right the wrong, then I would forgive and not punish.

For a Klondike bar, I would just go to the store and buy one. LOL!

What would you all do if you were in a position of power and could make any law at your command, or remove certain laws, what would you do? That would be my law Every person that is in prison would have go into intensive therapy every prisoner. They have to be taught their black history give them classes on that only the black ones.

Then any rich person that is in KKK would have to go into the Mexican jungle and live for a year Mexicans and black people. I bet they would look at skin color differently when you need to survive

What would you do if think a friends child is being abused? Well my honest opinion I really wouldn’t want to guess and come out wrong, but I would tell my friend to watch her man around her child, and explain the reason,but people are sensitive about their man and kids. I know the friendship wouldn’t be the same after I say something .

what would you do faced with sexual harassment from the CEO of the company you wort for, and the job pays very well ? I would sue. I wouldn’t care how much they pay… respect me…I would gather evidence on him first, before I leave the job. I was hired to do a job, clearly I have the brain for it which is why i was hired. I am a woman and you find me attractive, but you are going to respect all woman when I done with him.

What would you do if your parent told you that they are gay and leaving the marriage? I would be upset and no I don’t think I would be in a happy place with my parent for a while.

What would you do when asked to vote for religion to be taught in schools  or spirituality, what would be your vote and why? I would vote yes for spirituality, with spirituality you that everything in life in has a connection. I feel if was taught the world would be different certain universal laws that teaches you and helps you strive to be the best you… you can be.

What would you do, if offered fame but with a very dirty cost, for example sacrifice a friend or family member? I would decline…

What would you do if you got the chance to punish a wicked enemy without fear prosecution? I would kill but don’t judge me. I would beat,drag and kick the person until my soul is satisfied. I visualize it sometime. 🙁

What would you do with a Klondike bar 
Eat it I am hungry right about now lol

Hey everyone going to read the comments now

Blogger

I would trade this banana I’m currently eating for a klondike bar right now! lol

I would just breathe fire on the wicked enemy to punish them loooool Nah, really leave them to time. TeamKB fights for me! So I ain’t never scared!

Spirituality! Definitely spirituality should be taught in schools. Prayer/mediation to any higher being should also be held. For knowledge.

I only have one parent alive and they would never be gay. If they were it would have never been hidden. No closet for them. DWL…if you all knew this parent you would understand my laughter. smh

Ask for a pay increase before I class him! ….Ok maybe I need to think on this again LOL I just meet with my boss and the why his office smells alone is a turn off. DAmn office smelled like feet and some other funky stuff! kmrt

Ooo gawd now this question…Am abuse survivor so I observe and listen alot. I feel like the abuse continued because no one payed close enough attention nor did they ask me any questions. I pay attention to details with mine and other children. I also ask questions. I talk with the kids in my family about good touch bad touch. Who can see them undressed and who is not supposed to. If someone touches them and they do not like it. Any and every question I can think of to make sure they are NOT abused. My one nephew mouth naave nuh government lol he would call the po po. Same way he call the police PO PO! LOL
If I suspect my friend’s child is being abused you already know it’s a problem. I would talk with them about my suspicions and what questions to ask their child. Next would have to be interview by a medical doctor and a physical exam. If that friend is not listening, I would have to contact the local child services, beat they A##, and breathe fire on them and the abuser.

Thank you. I just learned that Obara Meji is one of the 16 Major Odu’s. “Be industrious and accomplish your desires.” As a sitting judge, I am so overwhelmed by the wickedness in the world. I usually pray for a “magic wand” to transform the spirit. Many days I cry and pray – what do I do in this case. Oftentimes, I must choose punishment or rehabilitation and restoration. Some people must die they do not belong on the earth. Others, well only heaven knows the way to salvation. I ask for divine guidance in my decisions. Love to you all. I am learning about Yoruba in my 70th year of life. I hope to join you in Nigeria next March. Charlotte Brown

What would you do if think a friends child is being abused? I like Courtney’s answer. I would do the same. I would also find out, if I would, who is abusing the child. Just in case, its someone I know. IF its someone I know like the parent themselves I would do all I could to protect the child.

What would you do faced with sexual harassment from the CEO of the company you wort for, and the job pays very well ? Like Bfaroy shared, I too was harrassed in one of my jobs. It was very disturbing for me. The person who was head of human resources! made several unwelcomed passes. He promised me a higher job etc. The entire time I was there (over 6 years) I just avoided being in the same room with him. If I had to go in his office, I would leave the door open and speak very loudly. All email messages, i would cc my boss. I knew if I reported him I would loss my job and him being the head of human resources made it even more likely that I would lose and probably not get any references for another job.

What would you do if your parent told you that they are gay and leaving the marriage? silence on this one, my brain can’t even go there

What would you do when asked to vote for religion to be taught in schools or spirituality, what would be your vote and why? I would vote for ALL religions then, not just the eurocentric ones. And the religions would have to be taught by an expert (highly recommended priest/shaman etc) of that particular religion

What would you do, if offered fame but with a very dirty cost, for example sacrifice a friend or family member? not for me

What would you do if you got the chance to punish a wicked enemy without fear prosecution? I don’t even know, haven’t thought of this much

the question asked by the 5 year old child, I would want a sword to kill anything.

I don’t know about breathing fire, would I still be able to talk without burning people? Not sure about being invisible, I want my loved ones to see me LOL even though it is a very good power to have 😉

The one about changing laws is difficult because there are so many that need changing. Yesterday I went into the city and I saw this man sitting at the roadside by a gas station, he looked destitute, I’ve never seen sadness on a person’s face like I saw on that man’s face. He had his head hanging, his shoulders slumped and his hands clasped between his knees and two tie-up scandal by his foot. He looked like he was on the verge of tears. I know that there are Safe Havens and such but it would be nice if there were more places that’ll help

The question about religion or spirituality in schools easy for me. Andwer, Spirituality for 200 Alex! why? Because Spirituality teaches harmony and balance and (for me) it helps to lessen confusion and explain what’s happening before my eyes

Morning love muffins

If a friends child was being abused i would tell the parent right away and expose the abuser! If said parent is unconcerned i would notify the proper authorities and do all I could to get the child help.

I would document all interactions with said pervert and try to get tangible evidence.Notify human resources and if they do nothing or fire me i would threaten to expose the company in the news and sue for damages, wages lost and sexual harassment. These predators are always repeat offenders and for him to feel comfortable enough to do this it has happened before and I may be able to spear someone the ordeal if i speak out.(My legal representation is free) Never scared.

If a parent came to me stating they were gay and leaving the marriage, I would encourage them to leave so that both parties can go forward with their lives. i personally have no problem with openly gay people however i do not like under cover brothers or people living a lie. to dupe someone into a marriage and allowing them to build a life and immerse themselves in a lie is wrong. People have a right to choose what they expose their mind body and spirit to. You are manipulating emotions and when the heart is involved people lash out and do crazy things.

I would vote yes for religion and spirituality to be taught in schools because as Obara said all religion is valid once it teaches love. I would make it more spiritual based and explore different religions while putting your spiritual growth and well being in the forefront, I would put it as an elective however because with everything else it is a personal choice. Obara always says to follow your head and i believe that all those who need it will be lead there out of curiosity and also by their guides.

I would not do that to a family or friend. Fame is a fickle thing and to give up a meaningful relationship for fame is not even an option. The levels of fame vary and it can be a double edged sword. that can easily turn into hell on earth because you have no sense of normalcy and simple pleasures are out of your reach.

If i got the chance to punish a wicked enemy i have no idea. I use to be big on revenge but as i grow i realize that the universe does a much better job than we can ever do. However mess with my babies I am gone take that ass out!!

I would give it to someone who likes Klondike bars! Make someone smile!

Boy the imagination of a child is a beautiful and wonderful thing…. I would like to breathe fire. lol Yep I would breath fire on all pedophiles, child abusers, domestic abusers, rapist, murders. Burn them bum to a crisp! Stop wasting tax money housing and caring for them. As we’ve learned on ES is that even bad people have their purposes in life but for this lot it is very hard to see. Fiyah burn!

What would you do, if offered fame but with a very dirty cost, for example sacrifice a friend or family member? Yes I would take and sacrifice the dutty family member that abused me. I would sacrifice him a million times over and not feel any pity.

I’m still thinking on the other questions soon forward…

Hmmm tough questions, but I will like to answer the question, “What would you do faced with sexual harassment from the CEO of the company you work for, and the job pays very well “? Well, it depends on the way or level of harassment, I would tell him politely and make him see reasons why I can’t date him. But if he insists, I may report to my lawyer or quit the job. It happened to me when I was having my industrial attachment in a bank in Lagos, Nigeria, I was just 20 and this old big man wouldn’t let me be, though he wasn’t the CEO but the branch manager, until I fell sick and I was rushed to the hospital, then when the bill came, It was alleged that I did a fraud with the hospital, my God! Because the bill was more than expected for an IT student, it was an appendices operation that I had, but when the letter came from the Area office that my appointment was terminated, I went with this letter to the branch manager to defend me but this old bastard told me there was nothing he could do to help me, hmmm the next he said, “you see if you accept to date me, I would introduce you to my friend who will give you work” I looked at him and said thank you sir. I walked out of his office and cried to my ‘ori’ to fight for me.

I left his presence and as God would have it, the daughter of the Area manager was a colleague and she knew when I was rushed from the office to the hospital, I guess she told the father what happened. I had to leave for pursuit of my Higher National Diploma, and it happened that, I needed to sign some documents at the bank and I had to go back to the Area office of the bank, as soon as the father of my colleague heard my name, he ushered me in immediately, by this time, the useless old branch manager, was in the hospital shortly after I was sacked; from the wound sustained when armed robbers visited his apartment.

The Area Manager who felt I was treated unjustly, asked me if I wanted to return back to the bank or to sign my documents. I told him I would like to return back, that was how I was transferred to another branch of the bank. One day out of the blues when the older branch manager who was harassing me left the hospital with a limping leg and few toes on his legs as a result of the armed robbery attack, came to the branch and was shocked to see me when he asked what was I doing there. I told him I was working, you can imagine when he asked how come, who called me back, I told him, it was the Area Manager, he asked if it was the same area manager? So sometimes when such things happen and it is the will of God for you be at a place at a time and there is anyone that is planning to stop you, just pray to your ori to fight for you.

So to any CEO who will not allow me to work in my place of destiny, then it is to pray, talk and probably leave. But of course if he is not someone I liked too! Lol
