Common Sense wins for a change

07 November 2012, 08:04
It looks like the misogynist with the magic underpants has lost the election. Obama stays in the white house. This is actually a win for the world and will maybe lead to more common sense in politics. The Americans have rejected far right religious nuttery.

Maybe we can get lucky here on the Southern tip of Africa and some common sense will come to the fore at Mangaung. I don't have much hope of this happening as our glorious leader seems to have the populace and ANC members in awe of his member...ship. Sadly there does not seem to be anyone in the ANC that will stand up and fight for the country and not themselves.

Recent events show the total lack of moral will in the ANC and then people hope that sense will prevail. Not one ANC member protested about the School book Debacle, not one ANC member protested about the killing of Tatane, The Marikana miners (seems the cops played dirty here), not one ANC member condemned the SASCO fellas die like cockroaches comment, but we had full on riots to stop a few people from the DA from looking at the Presidents city (can't call it a compound because that would be racist)  We had full on riots when an artist painted our beloved leaders with his member hanging.

It seems to me that unless some common sense comes to the fore in South Africa we are doomed to more corruption and graft, more poor leadership and more apartheid. It's funny how it's wrong to use race as a criteria when black people are being demonised but Whites can be demonised at will.

Maybe it's time for our fellow South Africans that our beloved leader accused of being too clever to actually use that sense he thinks they have.

The problem with defining people ...

A while ago there was a spate of articles about white privilege that I really wanted to respond to but business being what it is I simply didn't get the time. However considering the racial nature that many of the discussions on all social media platforms soon descends to the topic is as relevant as ever. Read more...
