Mount Everest can be climbed

26 March 2014, 09:53

Mount Everest can be climbed…

It costs around the same amount of money to climb mount Everest as it does to run in an election….a national election …in South Africa… the money required to run for president is for some people on this planet…a pittance…but for the ordinary person on the street… it’s a lot.

Tomorrow I am going to try to climb mount Everest again…this time with what God has given me… my brains. I am going to go to the constitutional court and I am going to challenge the Chief Electoral officer of the IEC. I believe it is unfair that to stand for public office I have to pay around 20 000 USD… my voice counts…why? I have something to say…and some of the people of this country agree with me. In fact at least 100 000. So tell me…where is the fairness or the freeness? 35 000 people signed a petition to impeach zuma…but how many actually went to a police station to open a docket? not many..in fact only 3 parties that I am aware of…and I am one of them.

So bear a thought for me tomorrow as I try to achieve the impossible again. As I try to stand up against the machine as a little man..with little support or backup… with nothing much really except a strong faith in the rightness of my cause. Can everets be climbed? Yes…it blood well can..if not today..or tomorrow … one day…as long as we don’t give up trying.

Don’t believe them, Sakkie!

I’m sure you’ve all seen the advert by a certain “Dating Service” on this page: a half-nude young lady, posing with the sunset in the background. If you didn’t notice the sunset in the background, I don’t blame you… Read more...

Elias Motsoaledi again Mathata

What an astonishing story to tell, as that no normal person would in his right mind have that kind of cash lying around in the house, or even not depositing it into a Bank where it would be earning some kind or return on it. Read more...

Morality without God

I find many religious folk asking Atheists how can they possibly be moral without some sort of divine scripture dictating so or without a God figure threatening damnation to keep you in line. Read more...

I, Human

I have, over the past few years, glanced at various secular humanist websites, and have found that my personal life philosophy is very much aligned with their goals - almost to a tee. Read more...

Dear AB and CSA

Nobody likes to work with a proverbial sword on their neck, yet our beloved captain and MVP will be donning the green and gold with this burden looming like a dementor around the cricket ground of said encounter. Read more...
