The irrelevant Iowa Debate with an update.

January 30, 2016

To Russia, China, Asia and all Sefrikens [and that gives you about all the parts of the World that count], there is nothing to add to the Headline, except maybe …

The Trump won it by the proverbial 1000 miles.  Period.

Oh well, perhaps it is a good idea to read what they say across the pond.  It’s funny in a way, but so are the British and their little Island, not to mention the Guardian jornolosts.

The irrelevant Iowa Debate

January 30, 2016

When the Lion Feeds

January 9, 2016

The well read person will recognize the headline as the title of a book by famous South African author Wilbur Smith in his very first historic novel.  He would go on with the theme from there to publish more than 20 follow ups of which most were translated and published in a fair number of languages and the author became a household name amongst international publishers.

Wilbur Smith did not explain his choice of title in the book and that only became known after the Afrikaans work was published under the title “Iets moet Sterf” [literarily “Something has to die”] in English.

At the time of going to press South Africa had severe censorship powers over the Press and every single new publication had to pass the Censor Board where one of a few or even one of the censors had the power to ban the work.  They had the power and did not have to publish their reasons.  ‘When the Lion Feeds’ was banned outright.

The reading public never found out what the reason was until much later.

Smith talked to his publishers and they immediately found the probable cause; went ahead with the Afrikaans Dutch edition in which they omitted one small line and published.  The censor Board passed it with no objection.  We had the Afrikaans version under the title of ‘Iets moet Sterf’ and though we all talked and wondered we were never told of any changes to allow it to pass and we of course did not have the original English version ‘When the Lion Feeds’.

I found my own version of ‘When the Lion Feeds’ in a second hand bookshop on Sunset Boulevard where you are just short of entering the Pacific Palisades and Hollywood.  It was on my first visit to the States May 1981 and I also found my own copy of James Michener’s book ‘The Covenant’ in the same store.  The Covenant was also banned in South Africa and finding both in one American store was pure joy and a real treasure.

I proceeded and smuggled both books into South Africa.  It was one of the greatest days in my life when I added them to my personal library.  I climbed into the pages and was, I am sure, one of the first in the Nation to find the reason why ‘When the Lion Feeds’ was banned but ‘Iets moet Sterf’ was not.

There is a tiny paragraph where it becomes clear in both works what the origin of both titles alludes to.  It in short refers to old African folklore that for the lion to eat something else must first die.  In the English version a short reference to race [purely innocuous but enough to raise the shackles of the censor board reader] was included just before that in ‘When the Lion Feeds’; but deleted from ‘Iets moet Sterf’.

Old folklore informed their young ones that the lion only kills when he is hungry, AND ONLY kills as much as he needs.  Thus a small pride under a new young male will only select a smaller prey than the old lion with a large pride of females and young ones he must fend for.  The male lion makes the decision on what size animal is required and the female lions do the stalking and the killing.

For all these reasons old folklore warns their young ones not to venture out on the plains or in the woods when the lion is hungry.

Then something happened in the past week; if you have the same habit of the lazy reader who reads the last few paragraphs in a book to see whether he likes it before he buys it, you must not do it this time.  If you read this you must start at the top; if you don’t you will miss the entire theme and join the ignoramuses employed by Western Powers in Foreign Affairs and Diplomatic Missions and Embassies around the Globe.

What happened was that a wannabee Lion cried a few days ago; real lions don’t cry but fake wannabee lions do.  This fake is hungry and the pride has become unhappy with him as leader of the pride.  His leadership has not been to the benefit of the pride and he has turned rogue.  He is unhappy because he only has ten months from this morning and the rogue kills for the sake of killing.  Old folklore warned against the rogue lion.

You have to warn your young ones, America.  The next ten months the rogue will kill anything in sight; it’s called “crying with rage” at being found unfit to lead the pride.

Read this Drivel and cry for your children.

Open Letter to America

January 8, 2016

Today in History.

President George Washington delivers first State of the Union address.

On this day in 1790, President George Washington delivers the first State of the Union address to the assembled Congress in New York City.

Washington began by congratulating you on the present favorable prospects of our public affairs, most notable of which was North Carolina’s recent decision to join the federal republic. North Carolina had rejected the Constitution in July 1788 because it lacked a bill of rights. Under the terms of the Constitution, the new government acceded to power after only 11 of the 13 states accepted the document. By the time North Carolina ratified in November 1789, the first Congress had met, written the Bill of Rights and dispatched them for review by the states. When Washington spoke in January, it seemed likely the people of the United States would stand behind Washington’s government and enjoy the concord, peace, and plenty he saw as symbols of the nation’s good fortune.

Washington’s address gave a brief, but excellent, outline of his administration’s policies as designed by Alexander Hamilton. The former commander in chief of the Continental Army argued in favor of securing the common defense [sic], as he believed preparedness for war to be one of the most effectual means of preserving peace. Washington’s guarded language allowed him to hint at his support for the controversial idea of creating a standing army without making an overt request.

The most basic functions of day-to-day governing had yet to be organized, and Washington charged Congress with creating a competent fund designated for defraying the expenses incident to the conduct of our foreign affairs, a uniform rule of naturalization, and Uniformity in the Currency, Weights and Measures of the United States.

After covering the clearly federal issues of national defense and foreign affairs, Washington urged federal influence over domestic issues as well. The strongly Hamilton-influenced administration desired money for and some measure of control over Agriculture, Commerce and Manufactures as well as Science and Literature. These national goals required a Federal Post-Office and Post-Roads and a means of public education, which the president justified as a means to secure the Constitution, by educating future public servants in the republican principles of representative government.

It is Ironic with an Upper Case I that on a day almost spot on 226 after that Historic address the present White House incumbent broke into tears at a public meeting.

Read all about that Shameless Act and rid your Society of the causes for it before the World will let you grovel in shame and make you pay for the reasons that caused it.

Stories of Kings

January 7, 2016

Meeting his loyal President and humble servant of the Pewpolls:

 Zuma and his one of his Kings

 He seems contented:

 A smiling King


Now, he is laughing:

 Now a laughing King

 No, I don’t know where he is from or what sort of King he is.  ML out your way had a dream; this one is having a bad dream.

They say he is my King.  No, I am a Sefriken; they didn’t have Kings when we got here in 1652; it is an English word and they didn’t speak English.

No, I don’t understand it.  Maybe you can tell me; read for yourself.

And you still want total Press Freedom….so help me Boab

January 5, 2016


Read it?

Now tell me honestly whether this is the Freedom of the Media that you are prepared to die for?

But then you gave Mandela a Nobel and the UK handed him pride of place on Trafalgar Square.  It all makes sense if you are a Sefriken.

This spells not only the end of the line for civilization; liberty is buried and the anarchist stands ready to bleed you to death.

The Guardian should rather ask the anarchist who wrote the drivel to publish it in China or Russia.

England is scheduled for the ashes anyway.  Nothing can help a society that allows this kind of open incitement to the criminal or terrorist extremists.

Happy New Years and I

January 1, 2016

This is going to develop into a tirade that will soon change into Open War.  Yes I have had it with some people; this year I declare War on them.  Be assured it will be a dirty and a vicious War; you will all see; watch this space.

No prisoners are going to be taken; the object and sole purpose of the War will be to erase the enemy from the face of this earth.

It starts today.

But whoa, before I start shooting with my poison gun, a Happy New Year to all my Friends.

Stay with our Lord and Creator, my friends; we shall need each other in the coming weeks.  This is one New Year resolution that I am going to stick with and I shall need you in the fight with the real enemy.

Info to be advised soon.
