Money is only paper, nickels and dimes

We know (or have been told) that America is in the Red and China is in the Green; financially speaking of course. Same goes for the countries in the Euro zone: some are in the green, others in the red. In other words, some have true money while others only have printed money.

Dalai in a Tutu

Posted by Jawellnofine in visa , south african , religious , religion , politics , opinion , gambling , Dalai Lama , commentary , chinese , China , brouhaha


Why are we westerners making such a issue over a religious figure. One who belives in reincarnation and predestination. I mean, he has seen it all before.

I bet that he is having a quiet giggle to himself.
I also bet that the brouhaha has nothing to do with the way his visa application was dealt with or with the China syndrome (I bet that they, China, are also having a quiet giggle to themselves watching us westerners get all hot under the coller with each other.)
I will put my money on the fact that it has mostly to do with going against anything the SA government and or the ruling party says or does; just becouse we can. Government bashing is afterall the flavour of the day.
I bet that the media machine are enjoying all the hive of activity behind this controversy; lots of money is being made.

Then again, I have never been a good gambler. But maybe, just maybe, this time my money is safe.

Democracy is not (just) about casting a vote.

Posted by flytrap in voting , politics , Government , Democracy


I managed to keep from commenting on the elections by virtue of the fact that my computer went bang and I have a bad 'flu. The discussions in the vehicle at night post-election make it hard to stay quiet. The discussions can get heated, but I encourage the girls (the caregivers I drive to their shifts) to exercise their Democratic right to express their opinions and to think their way through the politics to see the truth.

First things first… I am not a hippie. I am not a tree-hugger. I am not a political activist. I am just a Journalism student, who has a keen interest in History, Politics and humanity’s incredible ability to ruin all the good stuff about this planet of ours.

I am a cynic. I am critical. I do believe that we can use history and past mistakes to fix the present and secure a better future. Global warming - I think I believe it exists. The apocalypse of 2012 – I’m rooting for that to be real, for it to be a cleansing session for our world. South Africa – I’m a true patriot at heart but very aware of this country’s flaws and inability to solve crises.
