Tighten your belts - the e-toll way!

11 January 2014, 23:35

My life as a anti e-toll activist started four years ago when I heard Alli Baba spewing his arrogant rhetoric.

 On the 3rd of December our lives as South Africans changed for the worse. No longer are we free to roam our beautiful country. Our freedom of movement was stolen from us by our own elected government. Now we have to pay to pass a point in the road. Not one point alas… many. And like pin pricks on a map, these corporate crooks want to spread their devilish scheme from North to South, East to West on the map that we proudly call our home.

A toll is a devilish tool. We all know it’s a burden on society. Instead of saving our money and spending it on crucial family matters, such as: food, schools and medical care, we now have to dig deeper in our pockets for hard earned money.

 Tighten your belts ‘they’ say! However I don’t own a BMW or a fire-pool or a big house in Bryanston. I’m just little ol’me and my belt’s so tight I’ve run out of notches!

 Thankfully some of the well-to-do can sympathise with the working class’s plight and have so far stood in solidarity with us, and for that we are grateful. To the poor and the hard working classes I say make a fist, feel the anger well up inside of you, stand your ground and walk tall. Take a deep breath and do not allow sanral’s gestapo tactics to influence you. You need but shout help and people like I WILL come to help you!

 There is an atmosphere around us and it is strangling me. Everybody is now very quiet… shhhhh… I mustn’t ask if you have bought a e-tag. It’s terrible, we’re now all scared of each other… you might be an informer… you are a collaborator… TRAITOR!  No, but we must all be quiet and pretend this will all go way and please remain calm and don’t do anything to hurt anyone.

…I have seen some pretty smug, self-righteous e-taggers driving around and I have a burning desire to teach them a lesson!

No more strikes!

If you want a better standard of living, you need a higher salary. To get a higher salary, you don’t ask for an increase. That just creates inflation which hurts everybody, including you, later.  Read more...
