    ANC Centenary going to be some party

    It looks like the ANC Centenary celebrations are going to be quite a party! And this weekend's events are just the start – it's going to be a long year.

    Of course, big celebrations like these don't come cheapjust as well the ANC is the ruling party.

    Pretty hard to miss that the ANC is 100 years old this year. Strangely, I didn't even notice the celebrations in 2010 of South Africa's 100 years as an independant country. Sure, it wasn't wall-to-wall great moments – but surely worth some sort of a mention.

    A rather stark reminder that the ANC is more important than anything else in this country. Everything and everyone else is just along for the ride.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    and boy are they running scared...no fly zones...i would hate to be an afrikaaner living near the celebrations...they could suspect some sort of affiliation to a group...i wonder how many raids etc have been going on under the table...eeeeeish and imagine all the blue light planes never mind the cars...am glad i dont live close.

    something not even mentioned in the news but seems to becoming as popular as hijackings is thugs kidnapping white kids...taking them for a drive in the location...stripping them down and tasking all clothes...cellphones...and wallets...and what ever else they are doing to them..this is how some parents woke up to 2012..with a call to collect their kids...when are we as responsible parents going to stand up and say enough is enough...and start protecting ourselves and our families or are we just gona stand around and say well it hasnt happened to me and i have taken precautions to protect my kids so who cares about everyone else...

    policemen who shoot criminals are treated like criminals...something wrong with that picture...i suppose as bad as...police station to get private security to proptect the police stations...a family member had to resign from the police force for shooting and wounding a crimminal who was shooting at his police vehicle...after chasing a hijacked vehicle...the hijackers climbed out the vehicle in broad daylight...at an intercection and started shooting at the police vehicle he returned fire...not even killing the hijacker...but was put under investigation...anyone see anything stange about this...eeeeish thats all i can say...

    weddings on an islands...300 guests all expenses paid...when malema arrived in his barny suit then the penny dropped how he could afford it...being a "property developer" and all...eeeeish

    Dave, those three articles you linked to are exactly the reason the press in this country needs to be gagged and leashed for once and for all. The ANC has every right to spend what it sees fit on celebrations. They single handedly won the war against apartheid with no help from anywhere else. You can't put a price on that so I won't hear another word said that's not in favour of a well earned shindig. ANC ueber alles!!!!

    Is it true that the ANC is spending R400 million on the bash, or is that just capitalist white press propaganda?

    That can surely not be true while literally millions of small children go to bed hungry...

    To me, the true nature of the beast governing the country, is summarised in the article below.

    http://news.iafrica.com/sa/771283.html

    The sacrifice forms part of a cleansing ceremony for the ANC centenary celebrations, and is done in order to invoke the spirits of the traditional ancestors so they could oversee the events.
    We now know who & what rules SA. No wonder everything is in utter chaos.

    Superstition and black magic?

    This is a word recently coined to describe our current SA political
    situation:

    Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc'-ra-cy)

    A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

    Blurock's post started a chain reaction of though in my mind!!!
    Plato, who founded the Academy, the very first university which was a blueprint for all universities to follow provided that the ills of society would never cease until philosophers became rulers or rulers philosophy.
    Ironically, he was dead against democracy in 399 bc by democratic vote his teacher and friend Socrates was put to death on charges of impiety and corrupting the youth!!
