About Me:

I am 61 years old. Am interested in a large range of topics, including music, the arts, politics, the environment, financial issues, spirituality, social justice, democracy and human rights, alternative health etc. I feel I can make an objective contribution in these area's.

Are we South Africa taxpayers committing a crime by paying our taxes? The crime we would be committing is, “aiding and abetting crime, corruption and extortion”.

Now what are the chances that you write an e mail to the CEO of your bank, and actually get a reply? To my surprise, and delight, I experienced something that I, as a former banker, never thought would happen.

I asked myself what Madiba would have felt, done and said about this situation.

The true fact is no matter which government is "in charge", unless people take charge, and governments and laws are representative of the will of the people, then we are all in a prison of our own making.

I don't know if you know we are being duped. Duped means like the wool is being pulled over our eyes.

We are soon going to be going into an election, and like many other citizens I begin to reflect on the past and postulate on my views of the future.

In 1994 SA's goodwill reached near the top of the 144 countries in the world. Our assets were intact and our stock was high.

The sad fact is that there are no clinical trials that corroborate the claims of the pro-GMO lobby.

I made a rather startling and accidental discovery today researching South Africa's trade balances.

I heard on a talk show on the internet that there was a corporation registered in the New York Securities Exchange called the Republic of South Africa.

I last watched soccer during the last World Cup, and was intrigued that people actually watch soccer. I am not a soccer follower, so I watch rather dispassionately.
