And we think we've got problems

So what's happening in Iraq now that the USA has 'liberated' it? And why do they support these barbaric fundamentalists in their war against the Syrian 'dictator'?

This is some disturbing footage, so if you haven't had something to eat yet, now may be a good time to do just that.

ISIS killing and Beheaded man brutally



ISIS beheads little kids, rapes wives & hangs husbands

Now, we can all say that this is horrible and it is, but why did the world 'liberate' these countries when they knew this was going to happen?

It just goes to show that some countries are not 'democra-tizable'. Some people need dictators or minority rule. Saddam Hussein may have been a bit of a prick, but he kept these different factions from killing each other. Now they have democracy... great.

Same thing in Egypt, Libya and now, Syria. Bashar al-Assad and his father successfully crushed the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria and Christians, Jews, Shia's and Sunni's lived together in peace, even though he ruled Syria with an iron fist. But no, Syria needed FREEDOM.

Need I draw the parallels with South Africa?

Mob Justice in Diepsloot






Diepsloot

The first thing that jumped out at me was the origin of Diepsloot. I regularly drive past Diepsloot and the contrast between the affluent suburbs that basically surround Diepsloot would make anyone point a finger at those evil, selfish white racists. But where did it come from? And when?

Well, according to video 1, Diepsloot was 'founded' in 1995, a few years after Apartheid ended. And it is populated by a lot of immigrants from bordering countries. So, if you want some good anti-white propaganda, all you need to do is drive around and take a picture of a white-owned house in Sandton and another one of the shacks in Diepsloot and you've got your punch. But it's not as simple as that.

I never saw squatter camps when I was growing up in the 80's. I saw poverty, sure, but poverty was just small houses, built by the Apartheid government.

I'm not justifying Apartheid. All I'm saying is that there are more than just one thing to blame when it comes to poverty and squalor. It's all too easy to just blame everything on whitey.


Immigration

The South African blacks who live in these townships are obviously going to get pissed off at these guys who come over and take their jobs etc... even if it's not justified.

With the collapse of the police force and the military in South Africa, our borders just aren't secure anymore. And add corruption on top of that... You just pay the guy at the border. When you get to home affairs in Pretoria, you bribe someone to get into the queue, you bribe someone to get into the gate, you bribe someone to get your visa. No shit, some of the guys who worked for me told me (and asked me to borrow them money for the bribes)

So basically Mugabe's fucked up his own country and three quarters of his 'liberated' subjects have fled to South Africa and they flock to places like Diepsloot. That's just the Zimbabweans. What about all the other fucked up countries in Africa?


The Misconception

Now some die-hard white racists and hard-line religious freaks will obviously not agree with me. But the mere fact that the people of these townships get involved in mob justice shows you a couple of things:

Firstly, not all black people are criminals. This is pretty self-explanatory, but still hard for some people to comprehend. If they were all criminals, they wouldn't get into big groups and kill criminals. Easy.

Whites are not the only ones who suffer from crime. Black people in townships suffer more from crime than anybody else in this country. They don't have electric fences and alarms and armed reaction. They're lucky to have a fucking padlock.


The Curve ball

Having said all of that, there is still room in this debate about farm murders and hate crimes against whites. If you torture a white farmer and his family for hours and hours and kill them for nothing, there's probably a bit more to the crime than the cell phone you get away with. Maybe instigation by politicians? Maybe some kind of underground land reform? I don't know, but it is worrying.

If we want to move forward as a country, we've got to get rid of these idiots that are in power. Firstly, the ones who are pointing the finger and shifting the blame for everything that is wrong in this place. 



As long as the money keeps rolling

Thanks to MariadelMar for the link to this gem from 1986:

GM to Pull Out of South Africa : Cites Losses, Unwillingness of Regime to Dismantle Apartheid
http://articles.latimes.com/1986-10-21/news/mn-6561_1_anti-apartheid-group




"We have been disappointed in the pace of change in ending apartheid," GM Chairman Roger B. Smith said in a statement. "This slowness of progress in ending apartheid has contributed importantly to the imposition of sanctions and other actions by governments at all levels in the United States."

Oh, how noble of General Motors. Funny to read the end of the article, though:

"GM's withdrawal may not be total. Company spokesman George Schreck said GM's West German subsidiary, Adam Opel AG, and its Japanese affiliates, Isuzu Motors Ltd. and Suzuki Motor Co., will continue to supply key components to the new South African company that takes over GM's operations."

Opel Rekord 1986 - in South Africa

ISUZU 1986 - in South Africa

So basically General Motors stopped making the cars that weren't selling in Southern Africa, 'sold' their manufacturing operations in Port Elizabeth to a 'newly formed group of their South African Managers for an undisclosed amount'. And pretty much kept cashing in the South African middle class's money. But now they had the moral high ground.

It's a bit like Coca-Cola, who also 'pulled out' of South Africa under pressure from anti-Apartheid activists. They moved their manufacturing plants to Swaziland and used a new company, ABI, to distribute their products in South Africa.

What a joke. Just goes to show that big corporations care about money. Definitely not about human rights.


GM in Saudi Arabia:

So General Motors, if you really give a shit about human rights, how about pulling out of Saudi Arabia? 



You know that large patch of sand in the Middle East where gay men are hanged from cranes, women are not allowed to drive and female rape victims are decapitated for the sin of being raped. And they've got a little thing called oil... maybe you know about that.




Oh, what did you say? Those guys with their oil money like to pay top dollar for your SUV's. Is that right? I thought so...

How to destroy an economy

After the AMCU's (Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union) 5 month long strike which crippled the largest platinum mining sector in the world, the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) joined in on the action during this year's 'strike season'.

Apart from the long term effects on the economy that will no doubt touch all of our lives (mostly the poor), I have been affected personally by both strikes. I did some work in Rustenburg where AMCU was striking in January and I haven't received a cent. Rustenburg is broke. This week, I worked for an engineering company which was operating with skeleton staff, mostly Zimbabweans. The owner of the company told me that we should look out for groups of people as his Zimbabwean staff had been threatened. At the time, I must admit, I thought he was just being paranoid, until I saw this video today:

video
NUMSA strikers vandalize a factory

In a country with a declining economy and 50% unemployment, I just can't get my head around the logic (or lack of) of these unions and strikers. I'd be grateful that I had a job. But, of course, in any decent, prosperous, first world country, unions have an important role to play. Workers should obviously not be exploited. In this circus of a country though, if you're not striking with them, they'll fucking kill you. And this is exactly what happened in the video above. They were walking around the industrial area, looking for people who were working.

Just like in the good old days of Apartheid when the ANC used to stick tyres around black people's necks, fill them with kerosene and set them alight if they had the slightest inkling that the condemned were not on their side, the unions continue to do this to this day. We are not moving past a point where our country can begin to prosper and I doubt that we ever will if this mentality continues. 

The NUMSA strike is affecting almost every industry in South Africa. A lot of my suppliers can't tell me when they'll have stock again. BMW and Ford as well as General Motors have threatened to pull out of the country. And what was NUMSA's reply? "So leave then"... Great, so now you have FOKOL job.

And the ANC? 

Well, our esteemed Labour Minister, Mildred Oliphant (you'd change that surname, wouldn't you?) reckons all parties have demonstrated an "encouraging commitment and maturity in finding a settlement." Sure as shit doesn't look like it when you see the above video.


Foreign Investment? 

"Moody’s Investors Service said last week the nation’s credit rating may be at risk because of the walkout, which follows a five-month platinum mining strike that caused the economy to contract in the first quarter."


But hey, who needs foreign investment, right? Those imperialist racists in the West can keep the money they stole from Africa to themselves, right? We'll sell our shit to... Uhm. Yes, my dear fellow citizens, you need someone to actually BUY the stuff you are digging out of the soil or assembling or welding. If your prices are too high, they will go and find somewhere else to dig, assemble and weld. It's time that these idiots realize that they are not special. They may have been the 'special needs' child in the 80's when everyone in the world ganged up on the 'evil whites', but today they are of no significance, especially not to people who want MONEY. They don't give a shit if you struggled. They don't give a shit if your nation spawned the great Saint Mandela™. They want profit and they've got the money. And if someone's got the money, you bend down and drop your pants. I run my own business and I've got to drop my pants. You always work for someone else. There's always a boss whether he's white, brown or yellow. It's time they get that into their thick skulls and attempt to grow up.

Platinum Strike

So what happens after a 5 month long strike? Well, exactly what everybody with an ounce of intelligence told them before they even started striking. The mines will either scale down, close or mechanize. THIS IS 2014, WE DON'T NEED PEOPLE WITH JACKHAMMERS IN MINES ANYMORE. Can you dig that? They are lucky to have jobs because the government forces every large business to employ as many useless people as possible. That is why we did so well in the Global Competitiveness Index in 2013 with regards to labour:


I hope that the platinum mines close. And I hope that the big car manufacturers leave South Africa. Because we'll find a way to make money out of their stupidity.

Noah’s Ark in the 21st Century

When you’re concerned about the safety of your family and friends as well as the declining economy, the unstable labour market and a one-party state in the making as most of us in South Africa are, we think of emigration as a solution.

So, where do we go?

Most of us would probably consider Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK. But what if you don’t have the qualifications and skills they require for immigration purposes?

I’m one of those. We’ve been trying to get jobs in Australia for a while now. Some employers just throw out applications from overseas, others say: “Well, if you were here, you’d get the job.”

So a lot of us are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Of course there are other options. Georgia, for example has attracted a lot of white South Africans, especially farmers. But with trigger-happy Putin just across the border, is Georgia really a viable option?

I’ve looked into South America when I read an article about Comodoro Rivadavia, where my grandmother was born. Her father fled there after the Boer War because he refused to bow down to the British Crown. There are still a few Afrikaans-speaking people there who have never been to South Africa.

Most of us know that there isn't much of future in South Africa for whites.


Global Crisis:

We're a bit pre-occupied here with our immediate surroundings, but what's it like in the West? Europe is a melting pot, a ticking time bomb. The USA is in trouble. The house of cards will eventually come tumbling down. Our Capitalist system and the exponential rise in population globally just can't be sustained. So, emigration to the West could just be jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

You may have seen those programs on Satellite about the Americans preparing for war and building bunkers and thought that they're a bunch of nutters. Well, they may be, but all the evidence is there that our civilization will crumble and that it's not really a matter of IF, but WHEN.


Finca Bayano:

I stumbled across a project that is in the making in Panama and as you may see, they've kindly agreed to sponsor my blog for a while. Almost half of the hits on my blog come from the USA and I'm sure that a lot of you realize that it's only a matter of time before racial tensions, uncontrolled  immigration and economic mismanagement take their toll on the States.


For white South Africans this may also be a good choice if you're looking for the tranquility of country-life without the constant threat of torture, murder, rape and confiscation of farm land in South Africa.



"Finca Bayano is located about 200 (322km) miles west of Panama-City, at an altitude of about 1,600 feet (488m) above sea level. The area is sparsely populated and malaria-free. The size of the Finca is 75 acres (30 hectares), and according to our plans, about one hundred people are going to live in the village. The climate is ideal with an average temperature of 75°F (25°C). The soil is fertile and there is adequate rainfall. Firewood is available in abundance, and there is mostly a fresh breeze. A creek divides Finca Bayano into two equal halves. There is no industrial pollution and there are no power plants in this region. Also, there are no active volcanoes and no major earthquakes."




"Finca Bayano consists of Farm-Lands and Building-Plots. According to Panamanian law, the minimum size of a 'Building Plot' is 1,000 square meters, which is equal to roughly 11,000 square feet. One square foot costs 2,70$. Thus, the smallest 'Building Plot' costs roughly 30,000$. Bigger 'Building Plots' are also available. A 'Farm land' has the minimum size of 5,000 square meters, which is equal to roughly 55,000 square feet. One square foot costs 0.55$. Thus, the smallest ‘Farm Land’ costs roughly 30,000$."

For more information about this project and to find out how they are planning to establish a self-sustaining village, please visit http://www.fincabayano.com/

The Muslim Agenda

This is a bit off topic, but I just watched this whole video (almost two hours) and I feel that as many people as possible need to see this:



South Africa is screwed, I think most of us realize that. But the West still has a chance. And after all, if you guys don't stop the Islamification of the West, us white South Africans will have nowhere left to run to.

If any of the readers of this blog are Muslims, I don't give a fuck if this video offends you. Take a chill pill, live life as if there's no afterlife, and for fuck's sake, eat bacon. You're missing out.

The New Colonial Masters

According to our esteemed president, his hollowness, Jacob Zuma, China treats SA as an equal and not a subject as former Colonial Powers.

http://www.fin24.com/Economy/Zuma-China-treats-SA-as-equal-not-a-subject-20140227

"The countries that have been dealing with us before, particularly old economies, they've dealt with us as former subjects, as former colonial subjects," he said.

The Chinese don't deal with us from that point of view. They deal with us as people that you must do business (with), at an equal level so to speak," Zuma told CNBC Africa in an interview broadcast on Thursday.

China is South Africa's largest trading partner, with trade worth $21.7bn between the two in 2012, according to official figures."

I understand that, Zuma, I've also had that feeling of inferiority when speaking to proper public school Englishmen. They tend to make you feel inferior. But in the end, the inferiority comes from inside...

When the old Colonial Powers do business with South Africa, they want all kinds of annoying things, like transparency and health & safety etc. The Chinese don't give a shit how you spend your money, they won't criticize you about your racist domestic policies, your corruption, your inability to provide services to your citizens. And they won't tell you that you can't take half the money for yourself first.

Western companies and countries are probably also reluctant to do business with South Africa because of BEE. After all, they're not black, which means that they have to give a certain part of their business or whatever to blacks who add no value to the deal. Or they have to source a certain percentage of their products and services from local black dealers or service providers.

But China? Oh, no... The Chinese are BLACK, my friends. In a landmark ruling in 2007, the Pretoria High Court gave the Chinese the privilege of being officially 'previously disadvantaged'.
http://www.workinfo.com/Articles/chineses.htm

So, of course all this BEE nonsense is not going to scare the Chinese away. And they bring their own labour, so they don't have to deal with inefficient black dealers or service providers.

Zuma, you are obviously too stupid to see what is happening...


The Chinese Republic of Zimbabwe:

In the last decade, China has slowly taken over Zimbabwe. They've been bankrolling the ZanuPF murderers and helped get old Mad Bob Mugabe back into power. They've also set up a military base in Zimbabwe.
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-03-02/meanwhile-china-quietly-takes-over-zimbabwe?page=1

"China is the only country exempted from the indigenisation laws which force all foreign investors to cede 51% of their shareholding to carefully selected indigenous Zimbabweans..."

Funny that, huh?




In 2012, the Chinese owned Zimbabwean mine - Anjim Investments - sacked 1500 diamond miners when they went on strike for better pay. At the time, they were earning $235 per month. Compare that to South African miners' pay.

"The intolerance shown by the Anjin management in handling the workers genuine grievances is unacceptable in modern society. There are credible indications of gross human rights abuses against workers by Anjin management. Workers have been beaten with clenched fists, kicked around and called racist names by their Chinese employers. There are also reports of sodomy against the locals by the Chinese. These ought to be investigated and if found to be true, perpetrators must be brought to book.”

"Other disgraceful acts by the company include, the digging up graveyards to make way for the mine, and just throwing aside human remains – rather than transferring their bodies to a new cemetery."

So, my dear African friends, it seems like your new masters have arrived. And they ain't gonna be as nice as the white boss and madam.

Human Capital

I think I've ranted about this subject before, but I think I need to do it again. Just a quick explanation of what 'human capital' is, courtesy of Wikipedia:

"Human capital is the stock of competencies, knowledge, social and personality attributes, including creativity, cognitive abilities, embodied in the ability to perform labor so as to produce economic value."

Now, I've been reading quite an interesting book called "The Story of Money - For understanding Economics".


For a layman on the economics front like me, this book has shed a lot of light on how the whole financial system works. It starts from the origins of money and goes on to present day economics in easy to understand language. It has been translated to English from French and there are a few grammar errors here and there, but it's not that bad.

As with any book that I read, I always draw parallels to South Africa and other countries. I'm by no means an expert on the subject now, but one thing that stood out to me is the 'Human Capital' aspect of money.

Through the ages, the Greeks, the Romans, The Dark Ages, The Enlightenment... One thing has remained the same. Money is a 'token' of productivity. And as you can see in the above quote from Wikipedia, Human Capital is a measure of your ability to 'produce economic value'.

And Inflation? Well, as far as I understand, inflation, in its most basic form is when the production of a country falls in comparison to the total amount of money in circulation.

This happened many, many times since civilization began. And it's happening NOW in South Africa.

We all know that South Africa has already passed the point where we consume more than we produce. In fact, even our agriculture, which makes up a small part of our economy has passed that point. We now import more food than we export. And I can give you a lot of reasons for that, but it's not the point of this post. If you browse through the rest of my site, you'll probably figure that out by yourself.

Something interesting that jumped out at me in this book is the following about the inflation and unemployment crises in the 70's (in the West):

"Women joined the workforce en masse in the 70's after the social changes of the 60's. Until then, women had worked intermittently to support the war effort, but later quitting their jobs due to marraige and childbirth.

This surge of female workers was a challenge for the economy due to the length of time it takes to train and become profitable. Mass hiring was unrealistic, because wages combined with low productivity would have only led to more inflation. Along with other economic woes, workforce demography contributed to mass unemployment in the 70's."

Now, before the feminists get all up in arms... I'm not saying that the current situation in South Africa has anything to do with female workers.

What I'm getting at is this:


The Situation in South Africa:

Our official unemployment rate in 2011 was this:
15-19 years: 78%
20-24 years: 59%
25-29 years: 43%
30-34 years: 36%
35-39 years: 32%
Rest about 25%

IF the ANC was able to create jobs for the unemployed, what sort of jobs would it be? Picking up litter? Cleaning jobs? MORE government jobs?

The fact of the matter is that these sort of jobs don't contribute to the productivity of the country. The money has to come from somewhere to pay these people. And, contrary to popular belief, this money WON'T come from our taxes (the 3.3 million people who pay taxes). No, the taxpayers merely pay off INSTALLMENTS on the loans that the government take out. They spend WAY more than what they get in from taxes.

No, the money these people would earn is 'created out of thin air' by banks. This increases the money in circulation. And on average, the country's productivity goes down. So BAM! INFLATION!

The ONLY way to sort out this economy (from my layman's perspective) is to stimulate growth in the private sector to create jobs that will actually contribute to the PRODUCTIVITY of the country. But what are the chances of that happening? Because that would mean that the ANC would have to support the private sector (which is in white hands) instead of blaming everything that is wrong with the country on us.

And even IF they do that, we still have a problem with productivity. And again, this brings up the question of 'Human Capital'.

We've all driven past a gang of workers next to the road in South Africa. And we've probably all commented on the fact that there are 40 people looking and 1 working. This is the government's policies in action. Those two women flying the red flag at the stop and go... They're causing INFLATION.



I've subcontracted for big companies working at mines and factories. When they found out that I only have one guy helping me, they'd usually say that they can supply labour. Then they'd shower me with 10 labourers who would just end up being in the way. If you walk around on a site like that, you'll see the art of 'looking like your busy' in action. Our fellow citizens in South Africa have perfected this art. They'll sweep a floor for fucking hours, watching that clock the whole time. And as soon as the white man is out of view, the broom stops and they just stare at the clock. 

So, why are they all there, you may ask... Government regulations. You've got to employ a certain number of people if you want to get a big tender. And guess what.... In the end, this causes INFLATION.


South Africa vs The World:

So, how competitive are we? Why do we have inflation? Well, the Global Competitiveness Index compares 148 countries.


South Africa's Labour Market Efficiency:

Cooperation in labor-employer relations - 148/148
Flexibility of wage determination - 144/148
Hiring and firing practices - 147/148
Redundancy costs, weeks of salary - 35/148
Effect of taxation on incentives to work - 15/148
Pay and productivity - 142/148
Reliance on professional management - 12/148
Country capacity to retain talent - 51/148
Country capacity to attract talent - 55/148
Women in labor force, ratio to men - 88/148



Human Capital:

The sudden increase in luxury German cars and the colour of their occupants irritated me for quite some time when I came back to South Africa. I've been running my own business for ages and I can't afford a German car, neither do I want one. But it always pissed me off because I KNEW that I work 24/7 just to survive and put a little bit away, while most (and please note, MOST) of these idiots probably just got a nice fat tenda or got some cushy government job where they have to do nothing the whole day.



But it struck me one day that I have something they don't. And even though I don't have a University Degree, I have Human Capital. From the day my dad started teaching me how to mow the lawn, how to hammer a nail, to help him fix things. From the day I got interested in how things work and how things are built, I started gaining Human Capital. And that is something Julius Malema, even though he wants it so badly, will NEVER take away from me. He can take my house, my money, my flat screen TV. But he can never take away my ability to produce economic value. 

I've gone under a few times and had to start again from scratch. And I can do it again.

So you big BEE men, the BEE babies, the instant millionaires. You're going to get your day. It's all nice on the big 'white taxpayer funded' gravy train now. But the gravy train is running out of fuel, my friends. And no matter how much money you've got now. No matter how much bling, gadgets and BMW's. I've got something you don't. And you can (and probably will) take everything from me, but I'll go somewhere else and I'll start up from scratch again and in a few year's time you'll be back in your shack and I'll be all right.

And if you follow us to other countries, the fact that you are black and the fact that your uncle is in the ANC will count FUCKALL. You won't get that tenda just because you are black, my friends.



You're the shit now, huh? Tick-tock...

Triumph for traditional healers

The Supreme Court of Appeal has ruled that a sick note from a traditional healer be seen in the same light as one issued by a qualified medical doctor.


http://www.health24.com/News/Triumph-for-traditional-healers-20131205


So basically we as employers can expect a few sick notes like these:







I wonder how many people know that the first heart transplant took place in South Africa in 1967. But don't tell the witch doctors... They've been trying to do the same thing unsuccessfully for hundreds of years...

Dear Juliass... Part 2

Juliass, I know I promised to educate you about rating agencies in my next installment, but with everything that's gone down since the beginning of December, I don't think you'll pay enough attention to take it all in.
http://www.thetruthaboutsouthafrica.com/2013/10/dear-juliass.html



I know you've probably been planning your New Year's eve from the beginning of December, so all you have on your mind is Johnny Walker and loose ladies now.

I found an interesting short course in politics which I'd like to share with you, because I don't think you're getting objective views from your friends in South America and Zimbabwe.


TWO COWS:

I'm not too sure if you still have cattle Juliass, I know SARS has taken your farms (for which you worked so hard) away. But I'm sure you know what a cow looks like. In case you don't, I've inserted a picture below. Not only does the picture show you what a cow looks like, it also shows you what TWO cows look like together, so you get a bit of math education as well...


Note: These cows are European, so you probably won't like them, because they invaded your country and produced more milk than the indigenous African cattle. But still, you do enjoy the milk in your Pap, don't you?


LESSON:

SOCIALISM: 
You have two cows. The government takes one cow and gives it to the poor.

COMMUNISM: 
You have two cows. The government takes both of them and gives you milk according to availability. Government members have free, available, abundant milk from your cows. One day the cows die.

FASCISM: 
You have two cows. The government takes both of them and sells your milk.

NAZISM: 
You have two cows. The government takes both of them and shoots you.

BUREAUCRACY: 
You have two cows. The government takes both of them, kills one and spills the milk in the sewage system.

CAPITALISM: 
You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.


THE STATUS QUO:

Now, Juliass, if I look at the above, I think that South Africa has a mixture of Socialism, Communism and Capitalism at the moment. Remember this is an analogy, which means it's a comparison between one thing and another, typically for the purpose of explanation or clarification. So this applies to any business in South Africa. And remember, businesses are at the center of wealth creation. If you have a government job, you are not creating money, even though you pay taxes. Because your salary comes from taxes. Same goes for politicians like you, Juliass. You are just a sponge.



So even though South Africa has in fact got a mixture of Socialism, Communism and Capitalism, the clever guys in charge of the countries finances realized early on that true Communism and Socialism don't work, so they decided to keep Capitalism going, but to leach money off the Capitalists and to use this money to create a 'Welfare State'.

See, the white farmers you despise so much are still trying to buy bulls for their cows so that they can make more cows in order to produce more milk.

But the government is essentially taking more than 60-70% of the money the farmers get from selling the milk. They use it in the following ways:


  • A tiny bit is used to build shitty houses for the poor to shut them up and to keep them voting for the ANC. They also give them a pittance every month for every child so that they get a lot of children who will also depend on the state one day and will also vote for the ANC. It's brilliant, really.

  • Another tiny bit of the money also goes to what it's actually supposed to go to. Infrastructure maintenance and development. But most of it is just blown on consultants and BEE front-men and in the end, the jobs are done by the people who can - and who do it for a tiny fraction of what the government is paying. You'll know all about this. It's called tender fraud.

  • They're also taking some of the money the farmers make to give to the 'previously disadvantaged' to run their own businesses. You'll know this as BEE in the form of big BEE deals like the one where Zuma's son got a mine somewhere in Gauteng, fucked it up overnight and had to sell all the gear for scrap metal within a few months time... I forget the name of the mine now.

  • The rest of the money is spent on an over-inflated civil service. You know, when you need to get government paperwork done and you get to some huge office building in Pretoria and the guy behind the counter is playing Solitaire on his PC while eating Pap and Shebba. That guy is actually being paid with money that the farmer gets for his milk. To do a tenth of the job that he's supposed to do. So they get another 9 people to help him get his job done.



THE EFF'S IDEA:

Now, Juliass, what you and your EFFIES are proposing (well done, by the way, I see a lot of black guys with nice cars and red beret's these days) is full-blown Communism.




This is where the government takes both your cows and then provide milk to all the people. You'll notice at the end the cows die. Now this is why Communism didn't work. I think you don't realize that it didn't work. Maybe I should tell you about Russia and Eastern Europe in the next lesson.

You see, if you take the two cows and the farmer still has to look after the cows, but he doesn't get any reward for looking after the cows, the farmer will become lazy. Why should he look after the cows when the people across the road don't have cows to look after? In the end, they also get milk once a month.

So the farmer stops looking after his cows and they die.

For a while, you guys (The EFF) will be drinking as much milk as you want. Because, of course, you'll sort your friends out. They'll get the best milk and cheese before the rest of the skimmed milk is divided among the population (if they get any).

You guys are going to have a great time for a few years. All the milk you can drink. But as each farmer gets more and more lazy, the cows are going to start dying all over the place. And in the end.... No milk.


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, Juliass, but please don't shoot the messenger!


I don't know if you remember this guy, Eugene Terre'Blanche. He was murdered on his farm in April 2010, about the same time you started singing "Kill the Boer".

Even though I never agreed with the AWB, he said something in one of his last interviews that really stuck in my head. He said: "jy kan 'n koei doodmelk" (you can milk a cow to death)

Juliass, that is what the ANC is doing, if South Africa is a cow, the ANC is milking this cow to death.

But if you guys get into power, the cow will just starve to death.

Xenophobia in South Africa

WARNING: VERY GRAPHIC CONTENT

Notice the school uniforms. This is the nature of our 'peace-loving' population. If school children, who never lived under Apartheid can do this sort of thing, what the hell is wrong with our society?


The legacy of Mandela™?

No, of course, this is because of the evil whitey. We're responsible for these violent school children in some way.

If you disagree, you're the devil

This is a letter I wrote to a guy about the question of whether black South Africans were better off under Apartheid. I added his response below.

Hi,

(This turned into an essay, please read it - I'm not trying to convince you that Apartheid was wonderful, I'm just giving you the info and you can make up your own mind)

I'm not the kind of guy who's going to force my opinion down on anybody. We've got a potential disaster on the horizon in SA. Rising food prices all by itself could trigger a revolution. And with all the crap the ANC feeds the blacks, they will find a way to turn them to us, the whites, first when the revolution happens. To give you an idea: I once spoke to a black guy who worked for me about politics. I told him they should thank FW de Klerk for their freedom, not Mandela, as he gave the country to them on a silver platter. (that's the truth.) He told me that he'd heard that De Klerk used to ride into parliament on the back of a black man. I kid you not. You've got to remember that the masses are still very ignorant. They believe in witch doctors and all kinds of other crap. One of the black guys who works for me (I'd take a bullet for this guy) has on a few occasions had to sleep over at my house. He would go out and get bricks to put under the bed, because they believe the Tokoloshe (some kind of evil monster) will come after them if the bed is on the floor.

So, whether blacks were better off under Apartheid is a very complicated question with a very complicated answer.

Of course, the new rich blacks are much better off. I'm in the construction industry and I know how things work with Black Economic Empowerment. One civil engineer that I know, who's been in the business for 30 odd years has a black partner, who used to work for him at the beginning. He had to establish a company for this guy. He pays him a salary of R40 000. They tender together on jobs, two different companies. One has an engineer as a CEO and hundreds of employees, equipment, a fleet etc. The other has a black guy with no qualifications and a pick up truck. (His partner). The partner always gets the job. And then he subcontracts the job to the white engineer. Even if the tender price was higher. So, for this guy (who is a really nice guy by the way), of course he's better off now. 

There are millions of these BEE 'business men' who I've worked for. My uncle is a lawyer and their law firm had to take on a black partner for the same reason. He does NOTHING. He's not allowed to sign anything. He's just living somewhere on the coast and raking in a huge salary for having his name in the company logo. So I'm sure this guy is better off under Democracy.

Civil servants, on the whole are better off now. Because they are now part of the white middle class, they live in previous white neighborhoods etc. My neighbor is a black guy and we get along just fine.

BUT

From the last census in 1996, the black population increased by almost 10 million. And there's anywhere between 5 and 10 million illegal immigrants in SA since the ANC flung the borders open. Of the 42 000 000 blacks in South Africa (excluding the illegal ones) how many of them would you say were as lucky as the two guys I mentioned above? How many of them got jobs with the government? I've heard that the middle class and upper class are pretty much 50/50 white and black now. And there are 4.5 million whites in SA. So, say that's true. Then we've got 10 million people who now live comfortable lives in SA (minus the whites who now live in squatter camps and plus the indians and coloureds.) 

With a population of 52 million plus, let's say, 5 million illegals, that comes to 57 million. So roughly 17.5% of the population are living comfortably. 

If you don't live in Africa, I doubt that you know what poverty looks like. As I mentioned, I'm in the construction industry. I regularly go into 'townships' and I see the conditions in the squatter camps. I also regularly go to municipal dump sites where people storm your pick up like flies and old women go through trash to find something they can pawn to buy food for the day. These people now actually live in the dump sites. 

The unemployment rate in SA was 30% in 2011. But for the age group of 15-19 it was 65%, for 20-24 it was 48% and for 25-29 it was 27%. Now, if you were 29 years old in 2011, you were 12 when the first democratic elections took place, so whether you were better off under Apartheid or not doesn't really matter. There are just over 30 000 000 people under the age of 30 in SA. Let me break it down for you:

- 15-19 = 5 003 477 * 65% = 3 252 260
- 20-24 = 5 374 542 * 48% = 2 579 780
- 25-29 = 5 059 317 * 27% = 1 366 015

Thus a total of 7 198 055 out of the 15 437 336 people who never lived their adult lives under Apartheid are unemployed. I'm not sure what the government grants are for them, but from what I've heard you get something like R200 per month per child. Which is $20, so they're just sitting at home and having children to survive.

I agree that black people's rights were stripped away under Apartheid and that couldn't have been very nice. I sure as shit would've been right up there with the ANC at every rally and march and lynching. 

But if you're sifting through rubbish to make a living, or sitting at home making babies in a corrugated iron (if you're lucky) shack, would you feel good about yourself? If you're begging at a traffic light (there's at least one at every intersection in Gauteng) what human dignity have you got anyway? The question is, if you're struggling to survive, are you really free? Do you even care about the system of governance if you're hungry every day?

The 7 million people I mentioned above and the ones younger than them have no future under the corrupt ANC. The quality of our education system was ranked 146 out of 148 countries in the 2013 Global Competitiveness Index. We ranked 148 out of 148 countries for the quality of our maths and science education. The government no longer has apprenticeship programs like they did under Apartheid.

My father worked for the wheat board (which no longer exists). They (and the maize board) used to regulate the price of flour and bread. They protected farmers against international cartels who wanted to dump their over-subsidized grain in Africa. The government even subsidized brown bread. This may sound irrelevant to you, but if you're poor and you just need to get a bread every day, the price really matters.

South Africa is now a net importer of food. Our inflation is showing the first signs of going the way of Zimbabwe. 

South Africa's staple food is maize. The price of maize meal went up by 4.3% between August and September this year. If you're living off less than 2 dollars a day (like 30% of our population) then this is cause for alarm. And why? Because our commercial farmers are seen as the enemy and not the feeders of the nation. They are being killed off and driven off their farms. 15 years ago there were 100 000 commercial farmers, today there's 36 000. And 99% of the farms that have been handed over to blacks are producing NOTHING.

For all their faults, the National Party had the country's interests at heart. Unemployment was almost on European standards before the sanctions started in the 1980's. They protected our small economy from the international predators. And I would go as far as saying that if you were a poor, uneducated black in 1970 you probably would've been better off (on average) than a poor, uneducated black today. Sure, today you have the right to vote. But that means absolutely nothing to you if you are hungry NOW. And if you need to feed your kids NOW. Just remember, the vast majority of blacks were oblivious of the form of governance during Apartheid. Most of them never even saw a white man. 99.9% of blacks never had police breaking down their doors or beating them up. That's just in the movies. Most of them couldn't care less who ruled the country.

The ANC mobilized these people violently in the 1980's. A guy called Steve Biko told them that they were being treated unfairly with his 'black consciousness movement'. I always say, it was a bit like a rat that was free coming to tell the rats who had grown up in a cage and were none the wiser and happy, that they were not free. (I'm not comparing them to rats, just using it as an example)

You talk to any poor old black who lived in SA under Apartheid and most of them will tell you it was better then.

But I can't make the call, because it's a very complicated subject.

What I can tell you with certainty is that the ANC is turning SA into Zimbabwe.

This is his response:

The devil has no conscience, if he did he wouldn’t be the devil. Who do you think you are talking to, you white racist bigoted pig? I am a historian, an educated PROUD BLACK MAN with a Master’s degree. And I see your racist point of view spew through your words like venom from a snakes mouth. Oh I just don’t know where to begin with you. Let’s start with the so-called illegal aliens. As far as I am concerned you white people in SA are the only ILLEGAL ALIENS there. How did you come to SA? Where you invited by the people? Or did you invade? What does that make you? A nationalized citizen? You piece of filth. You are just a person who is upset that Blacks are now trying to rule THEIR OWN DAMNED COUNTRY. Tell me something, how did Steven Biko die? Do you condone his death? What kind of crap is the African National Congress feeding people? That is it not okay to gun down innocent school children? That this was your land until the white man came and stole it from you? I had to pull myself off the floor when you mentioned that white police breaking into people’s homes were just in the movies. That right there let me know what you are really all about and just blew away any possible validity of everything else you said. LIES, ALL LIES! All your stats and figures, are all just LIES to justify what you all trying to do. I’m sure you would love to change Zimbabwe back into rhodesia  (small caps intended).

That is just like some whites here saying that Black were better under slavery. And to say that Apartheid was not very nice, ARE YOU KIDDING? Apartheid was spun by the devil himself and you held the thread.


Oh sure they (the white government) gave a few Blacks some opportunity to convince the world that they were making progress. Moved some into white neighborhoods to fools some people to take off the pressure. You mentioned that you are in the construction industry, so why haven’t you tried to make a difference in the poor Black communities? Why haven’t you contracted with the government to build better houses for the people so that their living conditions can improve? I’ll tell you why, BECAUSE YOU DON’T GIVE A RATS ASS ABOUT POOR NIGGERS, RIGHT!  De klerk did not give the Blacks in SA a damned thing. Why! BECAUSE IT WAS THERIS IN THE FIRST PLACE! You stole it from them. Let’s go back to Apartheid not being “very nice.” You fucking idiot, stealing cookies from a cookie jar is “NOT VERY NICE.” Apartheid is a despicable EVIL. I say is because as far as I am concerned, it still exist. You murdered innocent school children in June of 1969. Imagine, cowardly cops, armed with pistols, rifles and machine guns, open fire on innocent unarmed school children who were peacefully protesting a school curriculum that was not in their best interest. “ The police then began to shoot directly at the children.” Is that what you call not being “ very nice?” Police vans and armored vehicles patrolled the streets throughout the night shooting and killing children on the spot”. Emergency clinics were swamped with injured and bloody children.”

Maybe this should have been your child’s bullet ridden body being carried instead of
Hector Pieterson.

How about this one. The Sharpeville massacre. Once again unarmed citizen, peaceful protest and armed cowardly cops. 70 people dead.

In  regard to this: “One civil engineer that I know, who's been in the business for 30 odd years has a black partner, who used to work for him at the beginning. He had to establish a company for this guy. He pays him a salary of R40 000. They tender together on jobs, two different companies. One has an engineer as a CEO and hundreds of employees, equipment, a fleet etc. The other has a black guy with no qualifications and a pick up truck. (His partner). The partner always gets the job. And then he subcontracts the job to the white engineer. Even if the tender price was higher. So, for this guy (who is a really nice guy by the way), of course he's better off now.” I have no sympathy. It’s payback time for all the years you stole from the true SOUTH AFRICANS. The BLACK SOUTH AFRICANS. And yes I read the farm report. “Ramphele said inequality in South Africa was structurally created, and therefore “needs structural remedies.”


Any problems that South Africa is having today is still a result of colonization from the european powers. I’m going to be watching every move you make and everything you say and will have a response waiting for you.


So, do you think I deserved that kind of response? Was I  being racist? Please enlighten me.
