Stricter punishment needed (Cape Argus, 30 June, Let citizens decide the law)

The article “Drunk drivers should be jailed” Cape Argus Wednesday 28th June is an old story that requires an answer. For decades intoxicated drivers have killed thousands of innocent people with limited costs for the intoxicated driver equated to the dead, maimed and very injured victims. Since it does not seem likely that the mayhem on our roads will stop anytime soon, I will continue to advocate a revisit of our Constitution with the agenda of stronger federal states and…

The history of politics matters ( Cape Times, 29 June , Skills before color)

  When politicians fail to deliver I tend to blame those who voted for that person and party. Voters must grasp that thru history, leaders in general and politicians specifically cannot be trusted.

Nimby (not in my back yard) – Cape Times , 22 June , ” Why fret over projects to house the poor”

We all have rights, some more than others. Sometimes the concept of rights goes too far and thinking people must come together and allow rationality to supersede. Recently some ratepayer’s associations a distant from the Garden village community objected to the development of affordable housing near that village.

Since the Provincial Department has clearly assigned huge resources into the planned development, why is it that a few consider they know better…
