      busg dweller, i am not sure what you capetonians have got to boast about. whenever i come through to your area, i travel along miles of squatter camps. where do you hide? in the affluent suburbs like an ostrich? i am appalled at the poverty and how at how the "other half" live.... you guys also have that dreadful problem of gang warefare and the highest levels of alcohol and drug abuse in the WORLD. i would keep quiet if i were you.

      @dottie_01...the other day someone said bad things to you and I stood up for you and told him about it, but now I see why they said it...So shuttup you fool!!....The Cape Province is by far the best off of all the provinces...

      noonya, there is no need to tell someone to shut up... how very crass. try and hide your low breeding for your mother's sake. if you think that the western cape is a shining example of success, then i feel sorry for you. this is a direct insult to the many many thousands who live in poverty and do not have a roof over their heads, not to mention the many thouasands who are victims of crime, abuse and neglect. what low standards you have. just because the province is marginally better off than all the others, you think that you can claim that it is SUCCESSFUL? oh dear. just because there is a mountain that looks like a table, you people think you are living in utopia. now run off with that filthy mouth and wash it out with some lifebuoy soap.

    i need to remind myself that all people are equal.... over and over again. it is just too tempting to think of certain groupings as more barbaric than others.

      Dotty_01 It is a fallacy to accept the old adage that all people are equal. Yes, all people are born equal but the decision, to put it frankly, to remain equal with society rests with the individual.Every society has its set of rules and regulations regulating those societies. The adherence to those regulations and laws determines a persons claim to equality in that society. Is it fair and correct to equate Mother Theresa with Stalin or Jack-the-ripper? Would it place one in a moral dilemma to equate a criminal that rapes and murders a three year old baby as lesser than a law-abiding citizen? On the other hand must the German nation be held guilty of the atrocities carried out by the Nazi regime? If we wish to judge Hitler than we cannot judge the nation as abetting him in his crimes.

      I am referring broaly to colour groupings. i am forver reminded by the politically correct world that we live in to believe that there are no fundamental differences between the race groupings other than within the physical arena. i find this increasingly difficult though - these wonderful countrymen of ours seem intent on solving everything with force and savagery. they seem to like the western notion of voting and the fantasy of living in a society governed by rules, but they seem to prefer the more tribal and barbaric way of life, and seem to prefer to burn, loot, murder, rape and destroy everything that is not to their liking.

    The 22 year old murderer is just following the beautiful example set by their youth league leader. Oh the ANC is SO setting up their very own future for failure. Even if they do rule forever. They might think they have it all under control now, wait until these violent non-diciplined youths take over the country. So enjoy it while it lasts. It might be great for you now, but boy oh boy are your kids and grand kids in for a great suffer. And this time around you won't be able to blame the whites. So enjoy the fruit of the ANC, teach kids to be lawless. You get what you give.
