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.

 How ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ Became One of the Most Scorned Best …

https://www.yahoo.com/…/how-driving-miss-daisy-became-one-of-the-most- 105004366092.html

12 Dec 2014 … On the 25th anniversary of ‘Driving Miss Daisy’s release, we look back on its reputation as one of the worst Best Picture Oscar winners ever.

 To Dance with the White Dog (TV Movie 1993) – IMDb

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108347/

This is the touching story of an elderly widower trying to work through his grief. When Sam Peek’s beloved wife, Cora, dies, a white dog suddenly materializes as Book published in 1990.

 Those were the days when business had principles and honor. They filmed White Dog in Americus GA, my beloved home away from home on Route 19 that enters from the south, runs right through it where it crosses with 280 East and West then goes up north all the way to Canada, I think.

 What has happened to that World?

 Is all we have left the greed, the gluttony of Velocity Trade out of Toronto Canada and their ilk around the Globe? There is likely one in your country.

Beware. They are all as innocent as Greg Blank:

Telkom SA, the inconvenient Truth

February 27, 2013

Telkom is our largest Fixed Line Telephone and Internet Provider Company; originally founded in Johannesburg in 1891; government owned at first but going public somewhere around 2002; the share came on the market at 28 bucks; 50% was “retained” by Government.

 It was an immediate success when it went public and the share once reached 140 bucks I think but today it is languishing at between 16 and 17; even the Government is concerned.

 Being Telkom, they still have the ears of Government and make the Rules but Government appoints the Board of Directors; the past few years have seen many changes.

 Telkom’s main problem is that they appointed mainly Government sheepolls as employees and these fellows soon became quite adept at hiding the truth from Management and Government.  The few honest employees working their hearts out for their Company and its Customers are thwarted in their efforts by the unruly hoodlum and gangster type that is Ruling the Roost.

 When you get to read this Post, help us to force an interview with the new Telkom CEO.

The saga never ends.  There is more:

The Foundation of Money

June 27, 2012

What money, you may ask? And that will be a good question; yes Good Sir, a good question indeed and I will allow discussion on that. Let us have a look at this thing called Money.

There used to be a time when Governments vowed to exchange a one buck note of money for its value in solid gold but that time … well, it’s a long time ago. There have been many good stories about money including one of my favorites about the fellow in Germany long time ago, stacked all his money in a suitcase and went to the railroad station to spend it because it had become almost worthless, all his savings over a lifetime, but when he turned his back on the suitcase for few minutes he discovered to his amazement that his money was scattered all around the platform but the thief had taken the empty suitcase.

Way back then when money was still real one’s wealth was usually measured in terms of hard assets, land or other real estate; stock in trade in the business was visible in concrete and steel and, if you, for instance, owned a bicycle factory your inventory would include steel, leather, bells and whistles of the actual hardware through the various stages of manufacturing.

The natural thing any wise bicycle manufacturer would do in those days would be to keep an eye on the vacant lot next door with a view to buying it to enlarge his facilities when the time was right and when it came he would call the bank; a manager would come over and look at the lot and advance him the money.

Those days ended I would guess around 1990, about the time we got a thing called The Webby or as they would have us all call it The Mighty Internet, the Space Highway some call it and we all rise up in rage when any effort is mentioned to curtail or lessen our Freedom in Space.

You guys will argue with me now but I wish you to think about it. Who owns the Internet? The robbers, thieves and the drug cartels, ole friend, they own and operate it.

But what does that have to do with the Foundation of Money, you will ask?

Good Sir[s], you really think that the woes of the Financial World are over? Well, you had better think and have another guess, Good Sir[s], and think well, mind that. It ain’t over Sir; in fact, it has only just started.

The Webby and its owners have converted your money to entries on a computer chip.

Oh yeah, better watch your suitcase; spend the money that you have now; spend it and borrow as much as you can and spend that too. Debt is about the wisest investment anyone can have these days because The Foundation of Money exists no more.

The Webby is about to take over. Freedom, you ask? It’s a myth, good Sir[s]. Read all about it in the Euro Barclays Bank Scandals and what will happen to Greece/Spain to mention a few as things unfold over the next few weeks.
