Cape Town Parliament Walkout reminiscent of Weimar Republic - 1928

I said when the EFF and DA walked out of parliament that this is what happened in 1928 and people laughed at me. The DA walking out of parliament is probably the biggest mistake they ever made! That particular sitting was a Joint Sitting of Parliament for a Ceremonial Occassion. It didn't matter what the President was going to say or not say. The Status of Parliament was and is at stake.

The following article was written by Jeremy Cronin and appeared in The New Age. We must be very careful that we learn from history and don't allow it to repeat.

Here is the article:

Legislative disruptions: From the Nazis to the EFF - Jeremy Cronin

SACP 1st DGS says the inclination to collaborate with hooliganism by the DA and much of the mainstream media is of particular concern

BID TO Paralyse Parliament: No different to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party in the Reichstag, and just look how all that ended up

What is going on in South Africa's Parliament?

Let me begin with a …

Decisions. Why people are apathetic.

The following question came up on Facebook today:

"We live in chaos everyday of our lives. Confronted and having to deal with social and political issues festering, making us as a people sick. The puppies non confrontational and innocent. Not difficult to understand why they get more likes. I am aware of fracking, also aware of rape, murder, load shedding and SONA and yes the beggar on the corner. Which flag to hold up? Where to give and how much to take."

And here is my answer:
Its easy.
Decide that you want to retire asap. Then make your own electricity, find your own water, work with your neighbours and friends on food and clothing, pay off your house and car, dramatically reduce your cost of living, and then you are retired.
And at the same time as this, you have done your bit for the environment and unpolluted your mind.
Do one small thing each day towards this vision. It is my vision and it is working for me. My wife and I implemented it in 1999. We aren't there yet, but…

Virgin Mobile losing their virginity

Dear Mr Branson

There is a block of flats up the road.

We receive the mail for a Virgin Mobile client who lives in this block of flats.

I won't use real names, but the address says:

VirginBlockOfFlats 14 Virgin Street.

We live in Virgin (not real name) Street.

We get the mail for VirginBlockOfFlats (not real name) 14 because the post man (post person?) sees 14 Virgin Street instead of 14 VirginBlockOfFlats, even though the post man can plainly see that we don't have a block of flats at 14 Virgin Street, and even though we have asked him to deliver the owner at 14 VirginBlockOfFlats mail to her, but maybe we have a new post man.

We have asked the person living at 14 VirginBlockOfFlats to get this fixed. We have had this problem repeatedly with various accounts during the 19 years we have been "almost neighbours", but with Virgin for the past…

Learning from History

President Zuma blames Apartheid and says that Land Seizures are now required. Farmers can have maximum 12,000 hectare farms or two farms.

My comments ...

Blame is one of our oldest emotions and it starts with anger, jealously and coverting another person's stuff. The Old Testament has a law against it, "thy shalt not covet". In Buddhism, Anger and Jealousy are considered to be Mind Poisons. And in my opinion, depression generally, is caused by one person feeling less than another person.

The word blame appears in google 207 million times. Jealously 39 million times. Jealous 117 million. Anger 172 million times. Angry 440 million times.

History has shown that land (asset) seizures are always a requirement when a government has failed its people!

It chooses one or more scapegoats and blames them for all its ills, whilst telling the rest of its people that it is right and that they MUST continue voting for the government to get their rights.

This is often done by adding secrecy l…
