A dangerous combination
THE ANC IN POWER is like giving six- and seven-year-old schoolchildren permission to take over and run the school tuckshop. I somehow don’t think the ANC is purely arrogant, but arrogant mixed with stupidity. That’s a dangerous combination.
While the rest of the world is in a dire financial position, with South Africa beginning to take a huge hiding, these political buffoons sit around expensive venues enjoying the best food and drink (at taxpayers’ expense) and argue over power while you and I have to put in 12 gruelling hours at work. Is the Bok emblem something we have to deal with now?
It’s rather pathetic to see and hear the pitiful bleatings of our leaders, who are just a crowd of racist spendthrifts with no regard for the welfare of the country or its people. Yet strangely enough, due to the mentality of the masses, they continue to vote for the ANC. The continued left-wing rantings are really adding to the damage.
Pretty much like Zimbabwe, the people get what they deserve. While the economy is hurting me badly, there’s a part of me gleeful that the overpaid fat cats are now beginning to see their massive, undeserved shareholdings dwindle into a fraction of what they were worth. How many more stupid people can the ANC gather into its fold?
Reality hurts, even when you’re arrogant and stupid. But even the modest and intelligent suffer.
