A simple solution to the PAC problem

If the Government members of the Public Accounts Committee want to appoint Aseri Radrodro as Chairman of the PAC, but the Opposition still want Dr Biman Prasad, the solution is quite simple: Radrodro can decline the position. He is an Opposition member and can easily settle the issue by declining the nomination. If he doesn’t’, it will confirm that he is still the backstabber of old, the man who backstabbed Alice Tabete as CEO the Sports Council, then acted as CEO, only to be replaced by the piglet, then did the same thing to Etuate Koroi as CEO of the LTA in 2010. For once Radrofro should pass up the role of Judas and decline nomination when the first PAC meeting is called.

    We are living under the dictorship of one man, who would go to any extend to get Biman out of PAC, I repeat any extend. He tried and will try again. Afterall he has much to hide. There is no one in FF party with guts to challenge him-not even the Speaker. Afterall all have alot to hide. Lets see what else this cunning, scheming, shitty pants does next. Wonder how long will his aunt and he be able to hide millions they have shared.
    If they are as true Muslims as they try to show, they would have read the following prayer:

    Those who live on unlawful earnings

    The Holy Prophet (S) said: “The prayer of those who live on unlawful earnings is like constructing castles on sand.”41

    Hunger is a ferocious saboteur. Physical or emotional, hunger can push us to abandon our goals, crack our moral compasses, and lose sight of what truly matters. The Bible explains human nature having two hungry forces within us, sometimes in conflict and intended to work together. In Hebrew, they are called the yetzer hara (positive inclination) and the yetzer hatov, (negative inclination). The yetzer hara is our drive towards comfort, pleasure, and security, while the yetzer hatov is our ethical conscience ensuring we remain on a righteous path. The yetzer hara is necessary. Such a drive moves us towards love, career advancement, and business success. It can even spur us towards the pursuit of justice and the defense of human rights. Yet if unchecked by the yetzer hatov, the yetzer hara may lure us into behavior destructive to ourselves and others.

    We commit to a healthier lifestyle and plan for ntutritious and balanced diet. All goes well for a moment, but we are placed in situations which we cannot resist. We fall back into the old habits and have to muster enough discipline and will to get back to our goals of staying healthy. So strikes the yetzer hara (negative drive).

    Or, we’re deeply committed to a partner, in love, willing to sacrifice and compromise, and planning for a beautiful future for which we’re so willing to fight. Everything seems settled into perfect place. But then there’s some drama, and life takes a sharp detour, and we’re face-to-face with someone else willing to fall with us away from such commitments. Suddenly, we’ve made an irretrievable trade for momentary pleasure. The yetzer hara triumphs again.

    The Bible takes the time to tell us the story of two brothers, Jacob and Esau, and how each of them demonstrated the strong influence and potential consequences of these human inclinations. It also helps us to see how our personal choices and ability to control our human drives can affect our material and spiritual destiny.

    Esau returns from hunting, desperately hungry. His brother Jacob, with whom he’s struggled since they shared a womb, has prepared an apparently irresistible lentil stew. “And Esau said to Jacob, ‘Give me some of that red stuff to gulp down, for I am famished’ – which is why he was named Edom. Jacob said, ‘First sell me your birthright.’ And Esau said, ‘I am at the point of death, so of what use is my birthright to me?’ But Jacob said, ‘Swear to me first.’ So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. Jacob then gave Esau bread and lentil stew; he ate and drank, and he rose and went away. Thus did Esau spurn his birthright” (Genesis 25:30-34).
    Esau traded momentary comfort, even pleasure, for his inheritance and future privilege. After a day in the fields he was certainly quite tired and also very hungry, but he did not literally hover on the verge of death. The agreement he made was simply less challenging than exerting patience while he prepared his own meal. He chose what was easy rather than what was most worthwhile. And worse, his brother exploited such a weakness for personal gain.

    The yetzer hara lives within us all and hunger demanding sustenance comes in many forms. It may foster small indiscretions or gargantuan moral pitfalls. It requires constant awareness to combat, and patience with ourselves when we lose the struggle. Allowing the yetzer hara to dominate is part of our very flawed and very meaningful human experience. Finding balance with the yetzer hatov is an integral step on the path, as well. The story of Esau and Jacob is one in which both forces play prominent roles. Our holy Scripture reminds us none are exempt from such challenges, and stumbling is inevitable.

    To all our citizens, and especially to Raikoro, our soldiers, police and prison offers, our Government MPs and all those who are supporting Kahiyum and Bai, let this be a lesson to all of us. Our hunger for physical and spiritual comfort can influence how we see things, how we make decisions and how we live our lives everyday. Many have tried to justify the 2006 coup, the fraudulent elections, the tortures, murders, and all the evil that has happened since then simply because their hunger has been satisfied somewhat. Like Esau, many have sold their birth-rights for a single meal. For the momentary comfort and satisfaction of money, roads, and freebies, they have sold our faith, justice, freedom, ethics, our Fijian identity and our birth-rights in our own land. The yetzer hatov or negative drive has struck many of our people with a devastating blow. Fiji as a whole, and especially our native Fijian society has suffered a death blow.

    To Raikoro, Milamila and others, we can argue about the pros and cons of Khai and Bhai’s evil dictatorship and current tyrannical leadership until all the crabs and mongoose and pigs come to Albert Park or Vunidawa. Absolute truth cannot be debated. It is not subject to controversy, neither can it be derided by ignorance, nor be distorted my malice. Fijians have traded our birthright for the momentary comfort and security of a single meal. It is not weakness to admit our wrongs, but wisdom. It is not events that dictate history, but human choices and human inclinations. We need the moral clarity and discipline that enables us to see clearly, think clearly, and act wisely in order to turn our national ship of state away from potential destruction. May God help us. Vinaka.
