“Duplicity – 101”…Blog.

“Duplicity – 101”…Blog.

Just was is… Duplicity anyway? Aw Shucks… isn’t that some disease that you get from eating ‘raw corn’… because you didn’t cook it first? Or is it that ‘thing’ you get by… sitting too close to someone on the bus? How about if it’s what you get from… watching too much TV and Videos?

This last one… really opens your mind to possibilities and facts of… “Duplicity!”
The Pessimist will… usually view life looking at its ‘worst’ possibilities. Oh I can’t do that, it is too hard. Why should I try, I’ll never be able to finish college and remember I’ll be 89 next Tuesday! Why Tie my shoes when I can buy ones with Velcro Tabs. Or like ‘Chicken Little’… The Sky is Falling! This one will mostly see life through the… ‘Doom & Gloom’… scenarios.

The Optimist will… usually view life looking at its ‘best’ possibilities. “Just Do IT!” How will you even know if you just don’t try… so try anyway. It will all turn out for the best even though it doesn’t see so now. “Keep on Keeping ON” seems to be their life motto. Failure and defeat do not seem to be in their vocabulary.

The Realist will… usually view life… “With real time…‘logic & analysis’… and verify their decision with ‘facts & statics’”. This person is usually ‘not’ heard because their facts terrify the ‘status quo!’ Their decision will usually make people… “Make Believe”… that things are really better than presented, even though ruin and false hopes… will take the situation completely over. Remember the Titanic?

So where does… Duplicity come into this Equation? Can ‘any or all’ of these three personality types subject to Duplicity? But of Course! It simply means… ‘Saying One Thing and Doing Another. Have you ever been stood up with a date? Worse than that, did you ever have a “Blind Date”… and get ‘Fleas’… from her… Seeing Eye Dog? …LOL! [That… was a Joke!]

The term “WYSIWYG”… was popular some years ago. I seldom here it used today. “What You See Is What You Get!”… But that’s not really TRUE! Did you “read and understand”… the ‘Fine Print’… when you signed the mortgage or vehicle loan or credit card application? You were LATE on your Payments… AND your interest rate went to… “28%”!

And… They ‘didn’t even’ warn you that it would! “That is Duplicity!” Simply a “False Representation”…!

We are exposed… To “DUPLICITY” all the time through the Entertainment Medium. Say it isn’t so? Have you ever seen the movie… ‘Gone in 60-Seconds?’ I borrowed the Video from a friend of mine. Don’t you just hate those… Previews that you have to wade through first?

This particular movie… was ‘About A Car Thief!’ Yet on the Video Previews… there was a “Message” from some film organization telling ‘Everyone’ the… “Problem of… PIRATED VIDEOS!” And… How the Film Industry was “Loosing Revenue” from Pirated [copied] Videos. All this… in the Previews of… “A movie about Stealing Cars” That is DUPLICITY!

The Promises of Change… and still the economic markets remain lean. The Promises of Jobs and unemployment is at a 25-year high. The promises of Hope and the Future when the economists have predicted “10-years” of hard times, due to the Foolish Government Bail Outs! This is Duplicity!

How can you… believe those that would say ‘One Thing’… and then ‘Do Another?’ Husbands cheat on wives… and Wives cheat on husbands. Duplicity! You made… “Wedding Vows”… before God and Witnesses and “didn’t” keep them… that is Duplicity! Those ‘actions’ have led to a “Pandemic of Divorce!” “Your”… Children will pay ‘The Price’ of your… Duplicity!

Not being “100%... Truthful… is nothing but Duplicity! Will you allow Duplicity with your Pharmacist? How about with your Employer? I know they promised you a raise… but these are hard economic times. Yet the bosses still gets their… ‘Annual Bonus!’ That is Duplicity!

Who or What… then can we Trust? Surely not our… ‘Economic Structure’ of America. How about Financial investments? Ever since there is… “No More Gold Standard”… our finances are just “ones & zeros” in some computer terminal at an “ever changing and soon disappearing” financial institution. What then do you trust in that… is Not Duplicitous?

(Habakkuk 3:17-18) Though the fig tree shall not blossom, and fruit is not on the vines; the labor of the olive fails, and the fields yield no food. The flock is cut off from the fold, and no herd is in the stalls;
(Hab 3:18) yet I will rejoice in Jehovah, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
