Today’s word: resist. As I pondered the vast array of subject topics this word might yield, it soon became apparent I could lose myself in all the material. The topic of weight loss is obvious, just resist those empty calorie snacks. Golf: feel your legs and lower body resist as you coil your upper body to create power in your swing. Spiritual: resist the devil in the Spirit of Christ and he will flee from you. Star Trek: resistance is futile. Economic: resist the impulse purchase. There are literally thousands of applicable topics available from which to choose. However, there is one I can’t resist.
I really wish people would resist the urge to weigh-in on a topic they know nothing about. The best example I can offer is the verbal subterfuge from people who have no idea what they are saying regarding:
8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens
This law was established for the very purpose of protecting our nation from very real and very present dangerous threats. Section 10 Miscellaneous, Subtopic (f) Suspension of Entry or Imposition of Restrictions by President, states:
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.
What happens with people, who “don’t like” the current protection plan, is they resist the voice of reason in their own heads and spout meaningless gibberish in protest. In their resistance of this voice of reason they demonstrate how intolerant they have become. They raise their voices claiming our president to be intolerant and prejudiced, while resisting the examination their own actions and words. In this case resistance really is futile, they simply don’t know how to do self-examination.
How can our country resist this mob mentality? What voice of reason will finally rise up and out of the midst of these mindless tirades by the uninformed? When will someone stand up and say “resist the urge to be so destructive?”
Instead, what we witness daily is a boiling pot, stirred by the agenda of an ultra-liberal America, and the false-story media who twists and perverts every word coming out of the White House, by resisting every Presidential move Trump makes. Soon I foresee the last two democratic presidents taking public stands, perpetuating this resistance. Beyond that, where will it end? What happens when people lose their resistance to lies and deception, to leaders with no morals, to the voice of reason? Chaos and anarchy are just inches away, when we fail to resist.
