Don’t you just lo-o-o-ve those cuddly little rascals at COSATU, who care so much for the common man and sprout words of wisdom such as these, regarding the IMF - ‘this rabidly pro-capitalist, neoliberal organization‘ which they blamed for the ‘world capitalist crisis” and then went on – ‘Capitalism, and particularly free market capitalism, cannot be a solution to high unemployment rates and slow growth. Only through industrialisation, more state intervention and strategic nationalisation of the commanding heights of the economy will we be able to meet our job creation targets.’
This is a short extract from Martin Warburg’s column on News 24, which I suggest you read in full, here: http://voices.news24.com/martin-warburg/2013/10/illusory-superiority-and-cognitive-deficit/
They are, to use a medical term, pants-on-head retards.
These are the people who believe so strongly in the Constitution and Freedom of Speech and Expression, that they stoned the DA when they marched to the Gauteng Legislature. We are being re-rated by the IMF (evil bastards) and the World Bank (spawn of satan) just because their members are always on strike. Don’t they know that’s how democracy works?!
And of course there’s the even more loveable Juju, who says something that harks back to the eighties; he could almost be echoing Uncle Eugene. ‘Ons haat nie die swart man nie! Ons is lief vir hom, maar hy het sy plek en ons het ons plek, en as hulle hul plek hou en ken, sal ons lekker saam leef!’
Now Juju is never one to rock the boat, buck the trend, swim against the current, or any one of a hundred tired clichés. No, he’s a leader in the art of following, and he had this to say. ‘We don’t hate the whites! No, they are wrong when they say that! All they have to do is give back everything they stole! The land, the businesses, the banks, and we will show the how much we love them!’
Now I’m not saying he was a fan of Uncle Eugene, or a closet member of the AWB, but there is a striking similarity in their style of speech-making. Maybe they both watched videos of Hitler? Their speeches also use a lot of exclamation marks.
And in another interesting development , Shan Ramburuth, the head of the Competition Commission was accused of using public funds to browse porn sites and buy pornographic material, when all he was doing was making certain that the standard of South African porn was at least on a par with international porn and that no one company was dominating the market at the expense of others. He was suspended for this? For doing his job? What is the world coming to?
Can you imagine the hue and cry if this had happened with the Bread Cartels? We would now be paying R30.00 a loaf, instead of doing what Woolies does. Keep the price the same; make the loaves smaller. Soon it’ll be down to two crusts and two slices and they’ll call it a handy mini-loaf. That’s where the Competition Commission needs to get involved! Porn is safe, they don’t have to worry about that. The size of a schlong is unimportant when compared to the size of a loaf of bread.
That’s my considered opinion, of course and I realise I may be wrong, because while I consume a fair amount of bread, my schlong consumption is nil. Maybe the Competition Commission do need to get involved. After all, this Democracy was built on equality and, while an outsize schlong may not be of interest to me, it must be of interest to a number of men, looking at the ads for schlong growth and the pamphlets handed out at the roadside for Doctor Professor Muphara Kumpali, who promises that a large schlong will not only improve your love life, but your financial well-being as well.
