LETS START BEING FRANK WITH EACH OTHER

09 January 2014, 07:49

I dislike it when people say stop complaining. These people are either the rich and dont care or those who are benefitting so much from the system that they do not want to see the big picture nor do they care about others.

The fact is that we need to be frank. You have to be double teflon coated not to see that our country is not in a good place. No its not all the ANC's fault either but it is their fault that they do little about it. 

Many have said that we 'pale faces' just dont like blacks being in control. What utter nonsense. I think i can safely speak for the majority of pale faces and say that by far the majority of us support democracy but what we dont support is the 'zoo-ocracy' looming before us caused by the ever increasing levels of maladministration, corruption, arrogance and sheer ineptidude of many of our civil servants and their private sector 'connections'. These people are ultimately paid by you and i the taxpayers and they are supposed to know what they are doing and further be productive and actually earn their salaries. In many many cases around our contry these civil servants they do neither. We also very much support the notion of fair play and fair pay but the unions dont. They agree terms with employers only to renege on them by the next year and employees are told to strike all over again. SA's productivity is declining all the time and we wonder why people buy from overseas. People want and demand jobs but when they get them they dont want to work properly. We dont suport abuse by employers and would support naming and shaming of those employers found to be wanting.

Bottom line is we want South Africa to succeed too but South Africans need to realise the following:

Those teachers who cant or dont want to teach move over and lets someone who does take over. The same with our nurses. Levels of nursing are dropping to the extent that it is embarrasing. To all of us workers if you work you become valuable but if you toyi toyi and ask for more than you are worth you become dispensable. To the unions wake up and smell the coffee period. We that work and pay taxes cannot forever be the golden geese that lay the golden eggs. We are fast becoming a social secuity biased country not a productive state. We encourgae via our various unions medocrity not productivity. We have a serious HIV/AIDS pandemic on our hands yet many of our citizens still have unprotected sex. Come on how long must we carry on spending millions trying to get a message across to people who just wont liste. The message we give is all wrong. We need to change tack and be harsh. Its the only way. It is a terrible disease but it is only worse here because we think we can do as we like and everyone else will bail us out. Despite all the harships and unemployement being a major one still have a high postive bith rate that will no doubt far outstrip the possibility of all our people finding employment. Lets be honest about this hwo ofetn do we hear about people in poverty but who have 4,5 ot 6 children and expect everyone else to help them out. Or they tell their employers 'of we have 5 chidren to support'. Here's a wake up call - employers do not pay and never have based on the number of children you have. They pay you to do the job you are employed to do. 

We are now at a stage where South Africans need to start helping  themselves and our country out by not putting an unreasonable strain on its resources. Then all we ned is our government, provinces and municipalties to start being held accounatable really accountable for their actions. We the workers provide the taxes to make this country function and enable service delivery in order to enhance the lives of those less fortunate. It is sadly without question those in positions of power in our country who waste our hard earned  taxes with the net result that those in need stay that way. To be blunt its time these cheating, inept and arrogant civil servants and others were brought to book. Its the only way to save our beloved country.

Those demoracies in the world that succeed do so due to a large dose of honesty, hard work and being held accountable for their actions. We need to learn and learn fast.
