The Distaste of the Nation

14 February 2013, 13:00

Nowadays everything is either “e,” or, “i.” We have eTolling, iPads, eMail, iPods, eNews, eTaxis, iRukandji, e-Filing, eTcetera, eTcetera.

Tonight eZuma will be delivering his state of the nation address. Almost certainly this iDiot will not focus on the real iSsues that are plaguing our country.

Not a word will be said about the millions he stole to build his eState (compound), at Nkandla. He will iGnore the promises he made of creating 500 000 jobs – as well as his promise of better basic services to poor communities.

Not a word on the eXpanded eXtended Public Works Programme, or better eDucation, or iMproved municipal services.

eShowerhead will be silent on how he is going to iMprove water and eLectricity provision. Or how he, and his communist cadres, is going to repair and maintain this country’s collapsed iNfrastucture.

I don’t think he will try to eXplain how the eConomy can remain globally competitive – when overseas iNvestors are eXpanding in the rest of Africa – and skilled people are eMigrating in droves. We are eXporting fewer products and produce eAch year.

The useless ANC-government has a million plans; but no iDea of how to iMplement these plans.

Comes eLection time, the fats cats wake up and approach the mindless masses with promises of eJobs, eHouses, and eGovernment grants. The iDiots fall for the same lies eVery time and vote them back in power.

eCrime, eRape, iNcompetent government, eFarm murders, eCorruption, ePotholes, eSkom, eGravy train, iNvasion of Chinese iMmigrants, the list iS eNdless.  

Our eConomy, and the country as a hole (a big black hole), has been crippled by the ANC-led government. eZuma’s presidency has been characterised by promises, iNaction, political eXpediency, and scandal. Surely, this “president” is an eMbarrassment to our nation?

Although most people are iNfuriated, eXasperated, and iRated by eZuma (who has no iNtegrity), he will remain iN power, as long as the mindless iMbeciles can be iNfluenced by their leaders, and eNcouraged to vote for the corrupt ANC.

iSn’t iT eNough to make you sick?

A captured Public Protector?

The new public protector has very clearly already nailed her colours to the wall, and the signs are there that Zuma was right in pressing for the report on state capture to be handed over from Madonsela to Mkhwebane.  Read more...
