Everyone that reads my articles on anything that can be related to a regular occurrence probably thinks I am going to have a go at the religious in this article, Well good for you, you are probably phsychic, send me the lotto numbers please.
During the last month much has happened and some things have not. Let's start with Uhuru or the night of the long knives that has been touted by the religious far nuts over the last 20 years or so. Even as a self fulfilling prophecy it failed. Now if your Religious prophets are that bad at prophecy may I suggest, you start listening to people that make more sense like Julius Malema for instance.
2013 was a annus horribilus for many, That damned economy and petrol prices compounded with e-tolls and other wuckfittery from our government has put many below the bread line, and many many just out of work. but it was a great year for the President, The Guptas and their chosen ones. Zuma got a new fire pool, a soccer field and some land that "belonged" to other nice folk just because they were considered a threat. That new tar road all the way to Nkandla was abit of a waste as he just drops in home by chopper, but never mind. The Guptas were gifted with loads of government money via New age Breakfasts and advertising, They had a VIP landing at a national keypoint and Police protection all for free. Others that benefited from the largesse of Zuma and the ANC are too numerous to mention, but I am pretty sure that ANC membership added value to the lives of many in 2013 and this will continue into 2014 and beyond I suspect.
I have had conversations with a number of folks over the last month since the booing and have found that some are actually still pro Zuma, so I think we have a litlle to be concerned about, I also found that these very same people had a belief in the almighty and some the tokoloshe too. Many were willing to slaughter animals to appease the ancestors and to support the evil shower headed one.
I cannot prove any definite link between religion and support for Booma. I can however prove a link between stupidity and religion, Google it, There are many studies that show the reduction in IQ related to the support for ghosts, spooks and mythical creatures. It takes real stupidity to have an invisible friend that does not ever respond if you are over 11 or so. However the majority of the religious never got the memo about Santa Clause and Yahweh having something in common.
Many were brainwashed into this state of belief before their minds could diffenrentiate between manure and gold. Those beliefs were ingrained into them and no amount of logic will repair their mind set. No matter how many times God fails to answer their prayers, no matter how much poverty and desperation they see physically or in writing, they will believe that God supports their team because the evil boogers they are playing against don't deserve the largesse of their God. They suffer from a malady that allows them to ignore the suffering of the beseeching hordes and the absolute suffering of the many in favour of seeing the bonanzas of the few
. My new years wish is that you will grow a conscience and see the destruction caused by religious wuckfittery, You will stop praying for others and actually do something to assist. Find a local starving family, they exist and buy them a bag of pap and a few ingredients to make a sauce, Find a local school that needs infrastructure and put in some effort to help reduce poverty right there in your neighbourhood.
Malema may be correct in believing that the wealthy just don't give a hoot, and that my friends is the crunch. That is the elephant in the room.
A Happy and prosperity sharing New Year to you all.
