A headline made in heaven…

Sorry Mandy, but your article about the cracks beginning to show in the Shaik family edifice just begs an honest response…

Not only do I not believe that there is any fallout in the Shaik family, with all the disdain Lady Justice has been receiving lately from our politicians and their cronies, I propose the following:

No, the cracks are beginning to show in Lady Justice’s orifice.

Whaddya Know!

Lady Justice

Terminally ill convicted fraudster [I just lurv saying that] Schabir Shaik has just got another get-out-of-jail-free card.

Or perhaps it wasn’t that free. We’ll never know if his latest arrest and incarceration (?) was a quick debrief and grease session.

All that matters is that Lady Justice has been raped again. And the helpless citizens – the decent ones – can do nothing about it. This disgusting crook will be playing golf again soon; perhaps a quickie assault before supper. He now knows that it’s not illegal to beat people up while out on parole – it is the new South Africa after all.

Hurry up and die bastard!

PS – I’d like to pay for your tombstone if I can write your epitaph: Here lies a terminally dead fraudster, who excelled at raping the Justice system, again and again.

Why I'm going to vote again after 16 years

The first time I voted in an election, was back in 1994, generally regarded as South Africa’s first truly democratic elections. That was also the last time I voted.

It was a euphoric moment and my expectations were high; maybe too high. Soon thereafter I came to really know the vile creature known commonly as a politician. The ANC who were voted into power by a substantial margin, wasted no time in mutating into that which they had fought against, that which we who were disenfranchised, had all grown to despise.

I watched in despair and anger over the years as the politicians lied, cheated, deceived, stole, cajoled, pledged, broke their promises and then lied, cheated, deceived, stole, cajoled and pledged some more. Poor Democracy! He was getting it up the rear in equal measure to Lady Justice who was constantly being raped. As the politicians cheered this sodomy and rape of our constitutional and justice systems respectively, their proselytes and beneficiaries licked their lips in glee, while the majority of the people wrapped themselves tighter in ignorance, or just did not give a shit.

I decided to abstain from voting; abstain from endorsing this sick process.

However, recent events around the continent where despots were being hounded out of office, and the current demonstrations in Egypt, against a resolute scumbag in office, have compelled me to review my decision. I have decided to look at the voting process philosophically, rather than with anger. Instead of viewing my vote as FOR a political party, I now view it as AGAINST a particular party; the incumbent ruling party which has been the source of my disdain.

I now realise that it is imperative to send a loud and clear message to these cretins that we’ve had enough. We may not be able to dislodge them entirely, but at least we could weaken them somewhat.

I now realise that this is much better than the alternative – rioting and demonstrating in the streets of South Africa 10 years from now, to force them out.
