Please take note of the following.
1) It was never in any way said or promised that all post on this blog will be only in Afrikaans although most will surely be.
2) I will try my utmost not to completely destroy the English language in the process of writing any post on this blog. But then, why not, it has been the language of the enemy for so many years. 😀
3) All arguments may not always be contaminated with facts or fully researched but that again leaves room for all your comments to proof me wrong. 😎
Recently all news were mainly dominated by the Obama drama and the conflict in the Gaza region. At present all Americans are singing praise and rejoice for the new President Barack Obama. After all, he make sure everything is perfect, even took the oath of office a second time because he fumbled during the original session.
During his election campaign last year President Barack Obama did make serious a effort to ensure that everybody takes note that he is a Christian and have been going to the same church for the last twenty (20) years. Also was a family bible used when hê was sworn in to office. What raised the eyebrows is the fact that one of the first thing President Obama did was phone the Palestinian leaders over the Gaze conflict. Why not the Israel leaders also? We will have to follow this one closely.
A lot has been said about the fact that President Obama’s father was a man from Kenya in Africa and therefore he has strong ties with the continent. He also said in so many speeches that America will help Africa. What a lot of them understood is he will now take care of them. Surely a big difference between help and taking care, personally I think it won’t be long before they start to criticize their brother for neglecting them here on the continent.
Then we have the miles stones in a man called Jaques Kallis’s life. Soon he will become the only person to have reached specific mile stones in both test and one day international cricket. Many people have made remarks that Kallis are actually, according tot them, batting too slow. He apparently faced 96 balls to reach 72 runs in his last match. Many people will ask what does this have to do with President Barack Obama? Well in comparison Jacques Kallis is very much quicker since it took the President almost a full day and night to complete 10 Balls during his inauguration this week. 😀
It is becoming more noticeable that the ruling ANC party is not able to COPE with pressure of unhappy and defecting members. Just days ago one of their senior officials made a statement that people must not stay in the party for the sake of gaining seats in office. The starts to sound like a deceleration that the ANC begin to realize that the people are getting more and more frustrated with empty promises and poor service.
Just yesterday another member, declared that he refuse to be associated any longer with a political party that endorse fraud and corruption in the form of a leader still not tried in court and will in future rather COPE without the ANC.
Blogs and Bloggers
From the regular roaming on the various blogs recently, it was evident that more than one of the blogger were suffering from lack of inspiration, time and a declining will to be regularly lured into endless argument about topics like, South Africa as a destination for the future of you and loved ones. This is not the only topic but yet a very much contended one and leading to heated debates guaranteed.
It is my personal believe that a blog is an extension of every blogger and if he or she want to be themselves or create a persona, then so be it. What and when they write and how, is none of anybodies business. Keeping respect for others and deferring from hate speech and insults may I add.
Saying that I know that we quickly form alliances and get attached to one another, even the ones we disagree, just because we can. 😳
This is why we all feel cheated when one of the bloggers start to neglect us by not posting regularly or unexpectedly they do maintenance and upgrades without warning sending the Wosonki’s amongst the pigeons. 😛
With the above in mind, I declare that posting will be done on this forum, the moment the publish button is clicked and new post completely uploaded onto the site, and will continue to be part of this family for as long as humanly possible and to pest and make sarcastic remarks when required. 😈
More or less than that I can not promise. 😎
Greeting from the House to the Palace, Shack and Pigsty. 🙄 😆
