Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

Jo­han Botha should walk into the Proteas side, what is wrong with the se­lec­tors?

Is the Ar­gus go­ing to re­port on the U19 soft­ball world se­ries hap­pen­ing in our back yard?

Pol­i­tics

Malema is un­likely to have a good Christ­mas. His fi­nances are un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Hawks and the pub­lic pro­tec­tor. His ca­pac­ity to in­flu­ence ten­ders in Lim­popo has been hob­bled by his ANC sus­pen­sion, a sit­u­a­tion now wors­ened by the prov­ince be­ing placed un­der national ad­min­is­tra­tion. I strongly ad­vise the builder, ar­chi­tect and oth­ers in­volved in the con­struc­tion of his Sand­ton man­sion to get cast-iron guar­an­tees that they will be paid, other­wise they may find Christ­mas 2012 re­ally mis­er­able.

Why can po­lit­i­cal par­ties never stand to­gether on is­sues which af­fect this whole prov­ince, and its peo­ple? No one wants the stupid, un­nec­es­sary and ex­pen­sive toll roads, so why not stand to­gether on this, both the DA and the ANC?

Brian Cox has hit the nail on the head. The ANC prefers to keep the masses ig­no­rant. This dis­turb­ing fact was brought to my at­ten­tion by a bright young black Zim teacher work­ing at a fill­ing sta­tion in Dur­banville. He loves his coun­try but could not stay be­cause of Mu­gabe’s bru­tal­i­ties. He pre­dicts that SA will be in the same sad boat un­der ANC rule within the next five years. Scary thought.

Oth­ers

Are we as par­ents and cit­i­zens go­ing to sit back and ac­cept the fact that the driver of the taxi says he blacked out and can’t re­call what hap­pened? In­no­cent lives were taken. The same words were used by Jub­jub. Please save our chil­dren.

First Sch­abir Shaik, then Jackie Selebi and now Ballem. Me­thinks we will be need­ing more hos­pi­tals to cater for this new trend.

What comes first ? The melt­ing of the glaciers or the fi­nan­cial melt­down?

How many trees have been planted to re­place up­rooted alien trees?

On Ea­gle’s Wings – blow­ing your own trum­pet is not a virtue.

Is flu­o­ride toxic? It’s a most ef­fec­tive rat poi­son and in­sec­ti­cide. Google flu­o­ride rat poi­son.

Re blood re­fusal – is flu­o­ride toxic? Then so is tooth­paste.

And fi­nally ...

By the looks of COP17, COP37 will take place in the desert that used to be the North Pole, in tem­per­a­tures touch­ing 44 de­grees.
