Yesterday was an eventful day

December 23, 2016

I was hovering around between 1959 when I was a young lad who wanted to go places and the first IBM computer was installed in South Africa [long before Windows and IT]; then found myself on a cloud above Animal Farm passing over 1984, when I suddenly landed in the middle of modern IT with a well meaning young lady but she spoke in the strange new language that only they understand but which clearly illustrates that she doesn’t understand the business English which I grew up with.

 When she “revoked” a previous computer “advice” I had to invoke the name of the Chairman.  Hell, I know the guy well enough and he is my junior by 6 years.  He is the Chairman because he founded the Company of which one son is now the CEO and the other one COO, founded it in 1998 I should add; they are a big listed group today, one of the success stories of recent years in our Country.  When I thus invoked the name of the Chairman an ear deafening silence thundered through the skies above IT Land.

 When I aspired for greatness in 1960 we had no Managing Directors in big Finance Houses.  The top dog was General Manager and he was generally 55 or 60 years old with 30 to 40 years of solid experience.  Just after 1990 they all installed the Internet and 40 year old guys took over as Managing Directors.

 I had to look something up on the Internet and that made it necessary for me to check on one of the last lot I mentioned above.  He was “the boitjie” at hhmm … OK lemme call it Company A in 1990 and he would not have liked it if I called them Company B then, but he is long gone now, so is his successor … shucks, at Google I could not find any trace of where he is today neither any mention of the two successors after them.  Oh yeah, almost forgot; this Company was an old well-known name that listed on the JSE in 1990 with some others to make “all the botjies” Managing Directors.  You should Google for these things to understand this Post and you will laugh your heads off at some of these names.  They are the forgotten men of Yesterday in Time.  The big listed companies of previous times [the Anglo’s, De Beers, Rembrandt’s, quite a few] are still there and going strong but not from our shores; they have moved off to London and other places.  The ones of the 1990 “big boitjies” are empty shells.  They will deny it, … OK by me.

 Now the 1998 Company is leading the charge for South Africa?

 With a well meaning young lady who speak in tongues?

 For how long?

 Shane, and all the guys I tagged, I still dabble in a few shares; not enough to make me broke or rich, but the Torah does advise you to split your assets in three: one third in property another third in your own business and the balance in cash and/or shares in other businesses.

 So, I shall need to cut this short now.  I have a few rand in shares; currently in ACL.  Remember and save what I tell you now.  The clever economists and everyone right up to the Chair at SARB will tell you to invest for LONG TERM, meaning minimum 10 years.  Five to ten years are Medium Term; any term under 5 is Short and you must not do Short they tell you.

 That’s called IT!

 I say that’s BULL or DIT, to suit them with your money.

 The Truth is that currently Short Term is 2 days, from 3 to 5 days is Medium Term, and anything over 5 days is Long Term, the latter much too long for me because I go for Short Term, whenever I can just for a Day.  If you study the JSE volumes it is as clear as daylight in December that they all do it with your money and thus enrich them at your expense.

 Finally record this fact [you can verify it any time ad infinitum as long as the Internet stands that yesterday one person blocked the ACL share price for the second day in a row at 1149 cents with only 71 shares remaining at close of day and they will probably go at openers tomorrow Friday, December 23, 2016.

 IT is short for Information Technology, they say.

 I say that is BULL.

 There is a D in front that they don’t tell but that is the Truth.

 D stands Dis

 Thus DIT stands Disinformation Technology.  Or you should really and it would be wise to add a second D in front thus getting DDIT for:

 Deliberate Disinformation Technology

 That is at the Media stands for and that I why the World is in the mess it is Today.

Only Thirty more Days and Nights

December 21, 2016

Morning of this day Wednesday, 21 December 2016 has already broken over some parts in the Western Hemisphere and count down has started.  In just a few hours from this moment the entire Globe will be counting.

 After 8 long years we will count the last 30 days and thirty nights of the Bama and his pathetic family in the White House in Washington USA.

 The freak of a Man he is he has always wanted immortality but that even escaped his Role Model and the Icon of his dreams one named Nelson Mandela, whom every idiot in the World 20 years ago thought would make it but did not and vanished into obscurity in a mere three years.

 Bama and your ilk, in the name of God, GO!  The World with only a few exceptions bids you Farewell.

Merry Christmas 2016

December 18, 2016

Just 7 Suns from today will get us to Xmas morning 2016 and I shall start early this year because it will be my seventh one of Grace.  I hope for many more and my personal medical attendant says he cannot find any reason why I should not reach the ton; on my side I don’t want to rob anyone else going for it and thus as a human who has had his fair share:

Merry Christmas to all of you who contributed to another one for me and my cousin and Uncle Oom Wennie in my absence from Facebook.

Thank you Folks.  We have family in Oz, Paraguay, Netherlands, Ye olde country England, and quite a number with Uncle Sam.  Thank you all.

Let us remember the good things and the Blessings of our Lord God and Creator during 2016.

The year 2017 will be another year to deal with; for now it can wait.  I love you and yours for 2016.  Enjoy.

Merry Christmas 2016.

Screw the Day of Reconciliation in South Africa

December 16, 2016

I was only born in 1940 so I had to learn about the 1838 Day of the Vow more than 100 years after the event; to crown it all we were born in a family where liberal was not a political word; it meant kindness, sharing and respecting the elderly and your neighbour.  So as I grew up I went the way of the old Liberal and ended up as a Suzman Prog in 1971 and eventually devoted my entire adult life to a system of political sharing.

 However, though I voted ANC in 1994 and danced to the song of happiness with Beyers Naude and Oprah Winfrey, I soon became worried and the ANC left me when Thabo the Wimp in 1998 announced the vote for the prisoners for the 1999 Election.  Now they call 16th December the Day of Reconciliation; they can call it what they wish but I cannot in my heart, soul, mind, common sense and the basic Rule of the Lord by Nature reconcile:

 I cannot reconcile the right to life of the rapist of a 2 year old baby.

 Equality of gender allowing marriage between “parties of the same gender” and soon have them adopting babies to have a Daddy Daddy and a Momma Daddy each one fucking the little baby.  Every nerve is me says NO!

 Sex and screwing your little hearts out at age 15 and have Abortion on Demand

 Equality of Culture where my Culture does all the work and send the thief to jail where you slap him around a bit until he reforms himself, NO I cannot reconcile that with the right of the rats and common vermin with legs walking off with my garden tools.

 My right to have a dog and train him to attack the trespasser on my property where they come and shoot my Dog and the trespasser walks off with my electric drill

 NO South Africa, enough is enough.  You can take tour Freedom, your Democracy and all your Equality and shove it up your asses.

 TODAY, ON THIS 16TH OF DECEMBER, 2016 MY DESCENDANTS AND I WILL REINSTALL THE DAY OF THE VOW OF 1838 AND CELEBRATE IT.

The Jury Verdict on Nelson Mandela has just been announced in South Africa.

December 9, 2016

Well Guys, we all know the verdict on the Media by now; we don’t count in their eyes no matter what and I don’t see any possibility for change except to curtail or even eliminate Freedom of the Media drastically.  The original concept of Freedom of the Press, and that’s all, may do it but I am afraid the damage has been done.

When I mooted the Media Test for all of you on December 1st in Facebook and suggested 8 days I knew the results that I expected.  The extra day since then merely confirmed the Result.

On February 10th in the year 1990 a man walked from prison after 27 years, illegally and disgracefully detained according to the Media; some reported it as illegal incarceration of an innocent man.

He died three years ago on December 5th 2016.   I watched a substantial part of the Media from December 1st until yesterday.  It is almost another 27 years sine 1990 and, surely I thought, a few people would remember him.

Nobody did; the Ego died.  I did not see anyone referring to the hoopla of 1990 or his demise into obscurity over the past three years; so much for Media Power?  The Jury Verdict sums it up so well in utter silence:  He was yesterday’s Icon and Hero; may he rest in his own place of Destiny wherever that may be.

Let us carry on with our Lives.
