Back in the day you could voice your opinion as a normal citizen and your voice was heard. Well at least it felt like it was. Now, every person who can write is voicing their voice.
Not meant in a negative way, more, do they actually listen to us?
My country was mine to enjoy with joy in my heart. Now, there are strikes everywhere.
One headline read, “Strike Nation”, that is what we have become.
I asked a lady the other day, why do you burn things when you strike? Her response was: ‘So the people can hear us.’
REALLY!!!! Is this what people are being taught: 'Burn your car and then your boss will hear you and give you more money'.
What a bunch of bull. I also asked, do you have to dance? Her response: 'Yea, they listen to us when we dance'
Has no one taught anybody the principle of, if you burn your truck, you would not be able to work, and replacing that truck you burnt is going to cost the company a couple thousand almost a million to fix.
So great, you got your raise, but now you are told there is no more work for you. Why? Well the company had chosen between staying open, replacing damaged good and you. And guess what, the employer is going to choose his company and his trucks over you.
But hey, who am I to say anything. I can't strike, I will get fired is I do, I have no choice but to continue working and try find a new better paying job. But I'm getting really jealous of all the union workers getting 22% increases, where is mine, I got a mere 4% increase, and guess what I have to live with that or find a new job.
I have lost all respect for the ruling party, at some stage I liked you. Now, I want you gone, faster than a jet.
If it was not for the ruling party our country would still be a country. I have one word for you CAPITALISAM!!!!!!!!!
Something notable in South Africa is that we hide behind racism as a shield for capitalism.
This country (Ruling Party) is so money driven that they are not realising that they making the poor even more disadvantaged.
Your greed is killing young innocent children,
Your greed is rapping innocent children,
Your greed will cause an uprising.
Due to a lack of truthful communication, an uprising will be led blindly.
Wait it has already started.
What are you going to do?
When are you going to put a stop to your greed that’s breaking the one place I want to call home apart?
