Display name: blindfoldedcynic
About Me:

Blindfolded, standing against a wall. An optimistic cynic - but ready to be convinced otherwise.

In a land where great courage was needed to fight against an established and inequitable system of government

I am deeply depressed that this country continues along its path of self-destruction without appropriate outrage from the citizenry.

Once upon a time it used to be that finance ministers around the world took considerable pride in seeking to balance their national books.

So Pravin has managed to do it again. With his usual (and characteristically miserable) displays of wit, intellectual vigour, originality and limping force of personality (yawn)

I rather wish that I could be paid for my writing efforts on News24. I figure that I could give up the day job and make a comfortable living raising questions.

General taxation only really got started – at the time of the Napoleonic Wars in order to fund the war effort.

It seems that some of my readers have reacted very negatively to my article “Where Have All The Politicians Gone?” Mea culpa. I am sorry.

King Jacob has struck again!

The latest prescriptive profundities of King Jacob concerning the enormity of black South Africans lusting after white/Western norms and values appear to border somewhere between the comedic and the lunatic.

If the ANC will lie about the state of Mandela's health, what else are they not telling us about all manner of other things?
