Why Are We So Pathetic?

Having dinner on Saturday night, after my dillemma I thought I should see some "Friends"

As usual Cookie Monster starts a heated debate... Oooh I so love stirring the pot and getting the table all fired up.

So I have the topic thrown on the table.... "Why are we as South Africans so soft and pathetic when it comes to our government sorting outcrime" Ooooh lala!!

After the debate I have a few answers that will fix this crime scourge on SA.

The crime is bad yes we all know and probably all of us have been effected in some way. We have stood for over 12 years and just watched the carnage, our friends, family and close relatives have been murdered, raped and destroyed by these animals we call criminals. We have done absolutely fuck all, yep folks. Harsh, but really... come on, have you done anything... nope we have done fuck all!! How pathetic, what a disgrace we are!

Now what we could do is two things, the first we could stand together and rally those that have been hurt by crime and all we need is over 200 people, that have lost or been so destroyed by crime there lives are a shambles.

These two hundred people get a lawyer and take a class action against the government.... now this is where it gets really interesting... you dont just sue, you go for the gold, in other terms, for there entire wallets!

The action should be for over a Billion Rands... ooooh yes please!!!Now tell me in sweet simple English.... our President is gonna change his boxers a few times that morning he hears this! I mean the world will stand up and say, holy fuck! To me this will bring the hammer down, and we will have debate after debate in parliment about this!!! How fucking great would that be! Hurt the pockets, or shall I say Coffers. All officials will be crying foul.... We as citizens will be exercising our rights!! Yep, our God given rights!

And we must be sure to take this all the way... the best legal team that money can buy... We should take the fight to them.... Our banners in the streets should read... " You are gonna pay, hear us now!!"

So how could one bring this action against the state, what motivation do we as the civilains to do this?? Very simple.... in the constitution it states very clearly.... "You as a citizen has the right to be protected by the government of the day" HAAAAA HAAA Fucking HAAA...Now they have failed and a price tag of one billion should be a big fuck you!

The second is a little harder... but just as sweet... simple, why pay your taxes... I mean, we aint getting return on this investment are we now?? NOOOOOOOPE. So why pay taxes... you protect, we will pay... you spend on the police and security and then simple you send the bill, we pay!!

Two ways I see the government being brought square down to our level!

I leave you with this: in 1993 and 94, we were all worried of a civil war coming down on SA when the ANC took over.... it didnt happen, thank goodness... um, yea, ummm nope folks WRONG!!! We have been in a civil war from 1995..... its crime!

Hey see, you managed to go out to dinner on Sat as opposed to working.

Stirring it up is all just part of the game. I so like to fuck with these self righteous, opinionated types. Usually find a topic and slowly convince them till they have formed a similar opinion. As soon as they've done this I approach it from an opposing or their previous point of view. Generally once this is done you can sit back and watch it unfold...what a lag.

Class action is great, bring the labour unions on board as it's their members who have taken the brunt of the punishment - robbed in the streets, thrown off trains, shot in the taxi cross fire, victims of street violent and drugs, abused at the neighbourhood level by crime lords.

Then sit back and watch it unfold, even take the moderate point of view at the point and be the mediator...fuck I should have been it politics, but I don't humour fools gladly.

So you've sparked the idea Cooks, let's see you take the next step towards the class action suit... I'm going to enjoy watching it unfold right here.

I don't agree with your tax action point. SARS couldn't care less what your personal mission is and they'll lock you up swiftly. I agree that much of our tax money does appear to being wasted, but some of it is benefitting you through health/ education/ municiple benefits. Stick to the legal route before you try the illegal route.

I'm with Champagne Heathen on the SARS thing.

However, I like option 1. Cooks, when are you going to find time to head this up? I will join you, I've got two armed robberies and a hijacking under my belt so I guess I qualify.

cooks, ur a genius, get them where it hurts!!! their pockets! they dont feel the crime cos their surrounded by body guards and heavy security, we need to show them that we mean business and we wont stand for this any more as for the taxes well they cant arrest a whole country if we dont pay, however both these plans need to be carried out at the same time for the government really feel the burn, i rate we go for it!!!! cooks 4 prez.

Howdy Gang.... so where do we start?

Angel of Heaven: The dinner sounds really good, we could go so far as creating an agenda together, you know, the points to be discussed, so we can do some homework before the battle begins.The Devils Advocate... its like you throw this piece of fresh meat on the table, with all the sizzle... sit back and watch them tear it to pieces... and then when thats done you alsways get that one person who got so fucked up at the table that they are fuming.... just stir that pot!

MR RC:Labour unions bud, thats the best idea... they really are a rebel without a cause now a days! You are so right, its the poor people that get hit so hard and suffer the most!

Champs, how are ya doing? I hear you, but again I ask the question, where is the money going, show us the invoices!In business the staff payroll is your biggest expense... in government it seems the directors and so forth are sucking all the cash up!

It could be illegal, i really do see that point, but, is the Government acting in a legal manner?

Kitty Katt... Truth be told I can barely keep my friends never mind head up this idea... my thoughts are what it will probabaly remain... I know... I sound like a hypocrit. You do qualify, and let me ask you this... did it make you a harder more aggressive person? Be tottally honoust....

Porno Pam... We need to get a porn site going, that you will run, and Im sure will run like a demon.. this site will fund our political dreams!! Hee Haaa

My Fab Flower.... NO you wrong, that temper and aggressive side to you will best be suited for minister of international affairs (think thats what you call it) so you can take that anger and pent up aggression and tell the countries that piss us off to Fuck right off.. yea? You like?

"virtual dinner party" or something... then we can cover racism, darwinism, black economic empowerment, orgasms, the death penalty, circumcision, ghosts and the g-spot... to name but a few...

Hi Cookie, interesting post - funny bout the crime in our country - just seems to be getting worse - We as a family were attacked in our house in Midrand 2 years ago. The husband has been hijacked twice, I have been involved in a smash and grab, my mum was attacked along side the road - the list is endless! Is there anyone that has not been affected in some or other way? Viva SA, VIVA!

Hey there nmotb, thanks for the visit..... we have all been effected more than others but the fact still remains... we are doing nothing abaout it.... thats what pisses me off... however I am just as guilty! Liked you blog by the way...

Bathroom Hippo!!! WTF... love the name but get a liddle terrified when someone writes that...... like they have figured who I am! Crikey I would actually have a nervous breakdown.

Oh Thanks, I suppose we are all guilty for not doing anything about it but what exactly are we too do? One has this sense of being powerless as we cant even rely on the police, I know I cant trust them and I suppose everyone has adopted the "to each his own" attitude. Do you know that when I was involved in the smash and grab (in peak hour traffic) that no one, I mean no one battered an eye lid to see if I was ok! all I got was the idiot behind me honking his horn for me to move! Asshole! Thats Africa - gotta luv it.....not!
