What traffic rules...?

The life expectancy of ordinary motorists in the Polokwane area has probably dropped significantly since the start of the African National Congress' conference there at the weekend.

The armada of big black bodyguard bakkies that rush the scores of party bigwigs to and from the conference has created its own set of traffic rules.

The drivers apparently believe that if they flash their blue lights and drive very fast, they have right of way - even at an intersection where the traffic lights are red against them.

This holds even when they are not escorting VIPs.

And it works: a Ford Fiesta was seen shooting an intersection with emergency flickers flashing and the vehicle was not pulled over - although it was late at night, and there were no traffic cops around.

Speed limits have become little more than a quaint notion.

On Wednesday morning, an ordinary police van on its way to the conference, raced down the road at something close to 140km/h.

The conference is being held at the University of Limpopo, some 30km from Polokwane town, where most of the VIP delegates are staying.

Driving on the single-lane tar road past the university has proved particularly dangerous for delegates after conference adjourns for the night.

Then, to avoid sitting in the slow crawl of delegates heading back to Polokwane, the big black bakkies simply take over the oncoming lane, forcing all other vehicles onto the verge.

Made TVNZ news again tonight. What a joke SA is becoming!!!! The world is watching. Hopefully all those liberals from the 80s will see how wrong they were about black majority rule!

NZ might be watching, but mostly the world is no longer interested in SA.  They got what they wanted in the early 90's and now they've turned their attention elsewhere..

I disagree, and this is my opinion, if you dont share my centiments,so be it.

The money mongers of the world, had to have south Africa with a corruptable government

in order to get their hands on the mineral wealth without having to go to war to do it.

The method to obtain this is to lend them as much as possible,

and when the economy is growing at top speed beeing fertilised with borrowed money,

you start demanding payback and economic collapse is unavoidable.

So now you make noises of writing off the debt in exchange for the mineral wealth,

wich is already state owned, because that was the first thing your advisors told them to do.

Only problem is, China was lending much more and much faster than anglo american

and their partners !

It was on the news last week or the week before,

not exactly sure when, that the deficit on the national account is the highest since 1982,

and the very next day, the european union are very concerned at the rate of wich China

is aquiring mining rights of specifically coal and diamonds in sub sahara africa.

I think the closing bell is ringing for South Africa, but nobody is listening.

Why do I say so ?

The interest rates is going up again in January, why ?

The interest rate hikes of the past year or so is touching the consumers purse,

so they lend more money to repay debt, paying credit cards with credit cards etc,

so the personal debt per capita increases, something the government is

trying to decrease by hiking interest rates.

This in turn makes less money available for personal  savings,

 increasing the national deficit, wich increases inflation and so forth.

Adding to this the communist way of thinking of Zuma,

wich discourages foreign investment and the future looks even bleaker.

To sum it up...........

THE END IS NIGH !!!!!!
Never look down upon someone, unless you are helping him up.

Having watched the markets this week, it would appear to be "ok" for now. Yes they did fall with a bang on Wednesday, but so did world markets. And it is up 2.2% this morning.... I very much doubt that this will be the trend for next year!

What really peeves me off, is that some idiots are still saying it will be ok, there is too much riding on 2010.... blah blah blah!
I just took another gulp of wine to shut up!

Will the last person to leave please turn off the lights.... oh wait sorry load shedding not to worry!
