On Time and this day 50 years ago September 6th of 1966 when a Great Man died

September 6, 2016

It was also on a Tuesday, about 10 am that morning when the news came over the radio.  I had turned 26 just one month before that fateful day and was still in the formative years of my political life; it was in any event too early for me having grown up in an apolitical home, to form an opinion of the event but it shocked South Africa in its boots.

Doctor Hendrik French Verwoerd Prime Minister was assassinated by a man of a deranged soul and mind and died in his seat in Parliament that morning.

South Africa was divided between those who mourned and those who rejoiced.

I had to make a choice, and looking back I think that I made the right choice to stay above the fray and remained aloof.

In the aftermath of all South Africa showed a good sign of the heart by declaring the killer, a lost soul with a demented mind, a ward of the State President and sent to life imprisonment where he died at quite a ripe age.

Why do I place this today?

I shall reply to that in another Post. It will have to suffice for the day that any student of history will have to consider where the World stood at that time.  It was a different World to today.

The entire World is at another road crossing than it was then.  In South Africa of today we are proud of what Hendrik Verwoerd stood for; those who differ with me on this point, in South Africa or outside, read up before you judge.

To be followed up.

Of Time and a little humor in Politics

July 23, 2016

I break my series on Time for a brief note on a little humor in the doom and gloom of Politics of 2016.

We need it; mankind is still able to smile and a lot of it manages to slip through all the rancor that besets us about War and Terror, threats about the End that is drawing nigh; some even call it “and now the beginning of the End has begun” but that is not new either.

Have a break and smile.  My Gmail is down; our banks have fallen with the activity of all the mice, lice, the crawling black hordes of the Nether Regions have invaded our shores like locusts, leeches, parasites and clouds  of financial vermin, but there is still time for a smile.

Pause and enjoy.

The Bama stands out for what he is: a mere little Boy in a game for Men.

It just wasn’t the right Time, Little Marco

March 16, 2016

I am in a series of Posts on Time and thought hard and long whether I may not spoil it by this Post but it had to be said; this is not always the case with Time but I realized that there are times when you have to stick your neck out regardless of the consequences.

Americans of today generally fail the Test of Time because they live in a World of make believe of some past glory that comes from somewhere in the past that they have adopted as their own without even understanding the basics of Time.

Little Marco, oh let me call you Young Marco, you messed around in an adult World.  To come today, from a youngster like you and only a first generation American to boot, to get hammered for your presumptuousness you might have been forgiven, but then to state that “America is a special place; where you come from does not determine where you are going,” heck, young man that is your problem.  Step back Marco, let the people who have been there for twelve generations, proved themselves and paid their dues, yes, let them say that.

Marco, in Russia and China you would not have had a single chance.  Ok, now I can hear you say that you don’t like them.  You also did not like your Fatherland, Marco.

In Africa you would have been fish bait within one hour after announcing your intentions.  Now don’t come telling me that you don’t like Africa either; it’s an old Continent.  The leaders appointed by their forefathers are governing; the rest do as they are told.  It works, I tell you it does.

OK, the colonials introduced a Western form of Government, telling the people they need a Democracy and things almost got out of hand, but the leading families re-introduced the old systems and advised the people that they would  call it Democracy to keep the money flowing from America and to eat MacDonald hot fries.

Bide your time, Marco.  You’ve screwed up and may not get a second chance for a long time.  Pay your dues now and just don’t force things.  Face it Marco, you only got as far as you did, and were allowed to do so by the Party to take the Don out.  You failed, Marco and the DOP [that may be new to you; it’s now spelt with a D for Dead Old Party] will remember; it’s not a Party for brash youngsters in any event.  They only used you as much as they are using Cruz now.

But that’s his problem.  Don’t you go and tarnish your name now by throwing your lot in with Cruz.

Cheerio, sonny-boy; better luck next time.

Ikepedia on Super Tuesdays with Super Duper Rubio et al

March 1, 2016

When is America ever to learn?  Will they ever learn?  How can they ever learn that politics are for men?

Putin is a Man, and so is President Xi Jinping of China to mention just two.

How can you guys ever become great again, to quote the Trump, when a failed GOP is using a snot-nosed young kid and still a first generation American baby to assassinate the character of a leading candidate?

You’ve lost it, Grand Old Party, or do you want to hand it to the Hildabeast to finally screw up good and solid the little bit that is still left of America the once Great Society?

If the joker Sharpton gets ready to emigrate, please oh please, I beg you please, don’t let him come down South of your borders.  We have too many of his ilk here already

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.

America at War Part 5 on taking heart because so is the World

November 14, 2015

Yup, you are not alone!

 

Who must get the blame for this?

 

http://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2015/nov/14/paris-terror-attacks-attackers-dead-mass-killing-live-updates?utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=GU+Today+main+NEW+H&utm_term=137384&subid=15255091&CMP=EMCNEWEML6619I2

 

So who gets the blame now?  Ask your experts; read all about them here:

It’s time to let the people speak!  None of all the above experts know what they are talking about.  Experience?  Of what?  Do you want another Bama, or God helps you, elect Hillary and become a “hang-on State” of Africa?

 

Tut-Tut, cry not for us, America.  Cry for thee and for thy children.

 

Let your students PROTEST in all the land!  There was a time when South Africa got the blame for everything; maybe it can now serve as your guide.

Maybe this can help:

When and where did he go to school?  Are you sure he did attend school?

 

The man sounds like a one man army, or some ISIS lunatic that wants to burn the whole World down.

 

You okes must put a bridle on him and bristle his mouth before he succeeds.

Farewell to Life

August 2, 2015

Saturday, August 01, 2015

 

Don’t worry my friends and some of the family. I will be OK but at some stage soon before many more 1st of August’s life will cease.

 

In fact, you can hardly call it life the way we used to define it. I shall survive because I am taking precautions to keep my brain alive; the farming community around my area of abode will plant and harvest; ants, flies, little worms and cockroaches will roam and do what they do to maintain the soil and keep it clean. The brain dead will ambulate for a while and drop away; more work for the ants, flies, worms and roaches to convert to material for the soil.

 

I have seen this coming since 1990. The end of Life is nigh; hi-tech will hasten it and I expect the finale any day or week; maybe it will take a few months but surely then it will be done.

 

It’s a freezing 3 F degrees out here this morning at 04:17 AM; an unusual cold climate change that came much too soon after the global cooling of last year. I suspect that to be a large part of the cause of the massive brain death rate syndrome that is spreading like a tsunami over the land.

 

Our electric power is still on when it happens to be on; good men in the coal mines and oil industry are keeping it up [no place for women or pansies in that task; it needs men with brawn and brains]; our fixed landline phones are still on most of the time [again it’s men with strong arms and legs climbing up these strong four or five meters high posts to connect the copper wire. We have some problems with the major [well, we only have one] landline supplier that also wants part of the wireless cellular cake but fortunately for us keep on screwing it up so it is not getting anywhere.

 

The high-tech wireless industry is on the verge of collapse. Let by a group we call Nebo Voda Non-Com.

 

Just look at this and tell me whether I am completely nuts. My account is paid to date. They confirm it. I have just got my new data allocation for the month, a little over 4 hours ago; they confirm that. Why do I get this?

I checked it again at 2015/08/01 05:10 AM. There you see it; the computer tells me so. But there is an entire Web page saying the opposite:

 

You have run out of data and airtime

To continue browsing the Internet, simply recharge with airtime. Save on data charges, and click here to buy a data bundle www.vodacom.mobi.

You can also transfer a data bundle from any other Vodacom cellphone directly to your data SIM card, no hassle.
STEP 1: Dial *111#, FREE from your Vodacom cellphone.
STEP 2: Select Bundle Transfer and choose the bundle you want to send to your data SIM card.
STEP 3: Start browsing again!

Got a cellphone or a tablet?

You can load your airtime by removing your data SIM card from your device and inserting it into a cellphone. Then recharge like you would with any cellphone.

Once you have airtime, you can purchase a data bundle in one of the following ways:

On your Vodacom cellphone:
Dial *111# and select “bundle purchases”.
Or
Send an SMS to 100 (FREE) with the bundle size you need
E.g.: “MyMeg 500” to 100

On the web:
Visit vodacom.co.za, sign in to your My Vodacom account and click on ‘Buy bundles’
Or
Visit the Vodacom Online Shop at vodacom.co.za/shop and buy data with your bank card.

Got a Vodacom 3G modem or router?

Use our Vodafone Mobile Broadband (VMB) Connection Manager to convert airtime into data:

Go to ‘Buy once-off data bundle’ on the ‘My Account’ drop-down list to select a data bundle

Or

Send a FREE SMS from your VMB Connection Manager with the data bundle size you want to 100.

For example: If you want to buy a MyMeg 250 data bundle, SMSMyMeg 250 or for a 1GB, SMSMyGig 1 to 100

For assistance, please call Vodacom Customer Care on 082 111, FREE from your Vodacom cellphone.

 

Farewell to Life my friends. It looks sure that by end of day the entire work force in high-tech will be down with BDS [dead brains].

 

As I said I have seen it coming since 1990. The invisible machine has taken over; the machine is running man. We may as well close schools and cease education; shucks that’s probably where the new generations fall victim to the BDS.

 

Farewell to Life as we once knew it, my Friends. I am going to plant some cabbages, some tomatoes and early spring peas today.

 

Progress Report 8/1/2015 6:37:37 AM, time as by my computer:

 

I tried their emergency number again and found one that can talk and decided on a different approach. First I insulted his Company then asked him how long he has been with them. “Three years,” he said. Then I asked him whether he knows that the entire Company is fucked up. You won’t believe it he laughed and said, “Yes Sir.” So what could I do? I thanked him for his honesty and he then admitted that there is a big problem right now; could not even guess when it will be solved but honest enough to tell me so. We parted in good spirits; at least one of them has a live brain.

 

Update: 8/2/2015 3:26 AM. It was still off at just after one AM and I checked when I woke up a few miutes ago. It was on.

 

PS: The blank spaces in the No-Com Voda Nebo-Com are from their site. I dunno how to remove blanks spaces.

Africa 21 years ago Today Part One

April 27, 2015

It was Tuesday April 27th when the clock struck 12 at midnight that the entire Africa was Free at Last; the legitimate black owners of the entire continent were freed and every baby born after midnight that night entered the World as a free person; it is estimated that approximately 1 360 free young ones were born all around the country in the 24 fours that followed; in the first 100 days about 136 000 of them, giving us about half a million new free people by the end of one year after freedom.

At 07:00 AM the next morning the polls opened for all colors and by that night the freedom fires were lit all over the country.

They partied for weeks and the World partied with them. I did too because I had supported the move towards Freedom for all our people for my entire adult life up to that point; that morning I had made my cross on the ballot paper to become a free man too.  It was a time of joy for most.

In Part Two and the others to follow on that we will take a look at Freedom today and how it altered lives of millions in the past 21 years and beyond.

PS: Late off the press but to complete the picture with a visual presentation of the truth, see:
