Poor people don't understand

05 November 2012, 07:15
It's very clear, that on News24 and even the internet in general, we have a very clear and condensed summary of what our media is presenting to us about the daily events around the globe and also in our country. But, the global community is only available to those who can afford to be in this "community".

Now on this forum we are mainly all here for 2 reasons: Free news & What has the ANC/its counterparts done today that I should be made aware of?

This is all hunky dory and fantastic for all of us who havesome time to read over what the beloved African National Congress has done to help it's people today. 98% no sorry, 99.8%, no not EVEN, 99.99% of the time you'll hear the ANC stuffing up in some way and it just makes me thinkwhy the poor continue to vote for these idiots.

There is no logical way they can still blame apartheid on this, it doesn't add up. For something that happened 18 yearsago cannot still effect you as a person. It's not possible, something is wrong with you're mindset.

Another thing that doesn't add up is to why the poor continue to strike for service delivery and say they want ZUMA out but when the fatcat rocks up at their townshiptheir all lovy dovy and faith is restored again...and they vote for him at the next elections and then the cycle is repeated.

Why is this?

Is this because the poor are uneducated? YES. Has apartheid affected their lack of logical thought? NO.

Think about it: What is the one thing that keeps the poor in the dark all the time? INFORMATION. I wonder if you find a homeless person and ask him/her about what they think about Hurricane Sandy they will go "Eh? What seh?"

I don't even think poor people understand the concept of how money even works :/ I was driving through Sandton the other day and down the road from the McDonalds at that Hospitalopposite CellC you will see a homeless guy with either a sign or a car washing squeegee. Honest, he came up to me one day and said "hey my brah, do you have 20c for me please i'm so hungry" and I told him "What the f*** are you going to do with 20c bro?" and he said to me "Bread my brah".  

If you know of a place where you can get 20c worth of bread please go and tell that man the place.

I don't even think poor people understand how car washes work! Just a simple thought. When you're driving into Sandton and about to turn into Grayston Drive you'll have a barage of window washers. This new thing their doing is just spraying you're car while youre driving (not only is this flipping dangerous but it's just mindlessy stupid), what if he sprayed thewater, missed my window and hit my face and caused me to have an accident? THEN I would confront him and even though he was in the wrong what would he call me? You guessed it: RACIST.

But anyway back to the window washing. So you get to these chops and they start washing your car and honestly every time I tell them to stop they genuinly 9/10 times say "I'm giving you a free car wash my brah!!" and then they stick their knuckles to your window and want you to bump knuckles with them. I tell them everytime "dude STOP IT! watch this!" and I press the button in my car that magically makes water spurt out from the bonnit and presto I have my own free window wash!!

To my amazement the guy still told me I was getting a wash for free...

Poor people who don't earn anything and just expect handouts from others should go and ask ANC for money. Plain and simple.

They don't pay tax. They don't earn. They have no housing. They leech off everyone else. They keep voting ANC into power so WHY must their problems become our problem? Because it's our responsibility? KUK. It's the ANC's responsibility to give these people what they voted and surprisingly they are  getting it: Corruption, racism, bigoting, scandles, fighting, degredation, lies...you name it.

As far as I'm concerned the poor shouldn't be mine or anyone else problem for that matter.
