“DA Devil”

In the first place, don’t get me wrong.  I don’t vote.  At all.  Political parties put me off (especially if they cost as much as the ANC 100-year-party).  Show me a politician and I show you how he’s broken the law.  Yuck.

But this is a prime piece of biased reporting:

“The Devil in the DA Deal”

In it, “WickedMike” goes to town about the R700 000 legal fees the DA wants to “socialize” into taxes.

Really, R700 000?  (Some lawyer made good money – but not as much as some.)

Let’s put this in perspective.  To make this visible and more understandible, let’s say one rand is a millimetre.

1) DA legal fees: R700 000
2) ANC 100-year party: 100 million
3) Nkandla palatial home-“village” for president and family: 246million
4) SANRAL e-tolling project: 20 billion. (and counting)

If one rand were a millimetre:

1) DA: 700m or the 10-min walk to your nearest shops.
2) ANC 100-yr party: 100km or from Joburg to Rustenburg
3) Nkandla:  246km or from Joburg to Pietersburg (Polokwane)
4) SANRAL: 20 million km or halfway to Venus.

Dear Mike.

You mind being taxed a ten-minute walk to the shops but are quite ok with having to travel halfway to Venus??

You’d rather go with a government that sends you to Rustenburg and Polokwane on a whim (for a party and luxuries of theirs), and deep into space for their profits?

Go figure, I really can’t understand some paid reporters.
