Sin taxes and government's investment in sin

We all agree on one level that "sin" taxes are a good thing, because we believe that these "sin" taxes are a deterrent to buying products that fall under these "sin" tax laws. Usually, smoking related products such as cigarettes, and alcohol are "sin" taxed. Of course, we all believe that people will think twice about buying such products because of these extra taxes on them.

I am not sure that this is indeed the case! From my experience, many of these "sin" users simply cut somewhere else in their budgets in order to keep purchasing their "sin" delights!

Join the Baby wars

Here in South Africa a total of 210 rhinos have been killed in 2010 for their horns to satisfy the 'horny' (forgive the intended pun) desires of degenerates in the far east. These lunes will pay top $$$ for rhino horn because they believe it has some kind of medicinal value and the power to give them sexual prowess. Why don't these people not just chew their own hair?

Anyway, these majestic animals are being killed for nothing! And that is a shame. And, outrage against this trade is the right response! Hence, there is a call to Join the Rhino Wars.

However, why don't these people show outrage against the vicious, conscienceless killing of another sort? That of millions of human babies every year! Enough human babies are being aborted worldwide every year to have decimated the populations of some countries!

Something for all jelly-spined Westerners to take note of!

We cannot say that we haven't been warned! This has been going on a long time! Islam is not interested in peaceful negotiations with anyone! It has one goal: World domination!

Be Warned!

New Gauteng number plates to launch in December 2010

The proposed Gauteng number plate system
I wrote about the new proposed Gauteng number plate system back in November 2009, and now finally, it seems that those new number plates will come into effect in December 2010.

Of course, one of the reasons that the current system of number plates have run out so soon, is because it never used vowels. The current system of BBB000 GP, doesn't use vowels. If I calculated correctly, the current system (without using vowels and excluding personal and government vehicles) can only take about 9,261,000 numbers, whereas if vowels were used it would've taken 17,576,000 numbers. Almost double the amount! Now they want new numbers which would cost people more, again!

Show your support for the Right to Know Campaign today! ACTION item!

The South African government is busy looking at the Secrecy Protection of Information Bill. I wrote about this in my post called "South Africa soon to experience its own Body Snatchers." In this post I wrote:

"The problem with any government, is that as soon as the government starts intervening in the area of the free flow of information (FFOI), it is usually (read: almost always) because the current government (political party in charge) does not like what is being said about them. When it comes to the ANC, that is exactly the case. The ANC does not have the social make-up or maturity to handle criticism well. [...]

"A government that does not like, and cannot handle, criticism, soon turns into a totalitarianism."
South Africa is currently at a cross-roads in more ways than one, and the issue of the freedom of the press and of the Free Flow of Information (FFoI) is but one of them. However, for the South African democracy this issue rates as one of the most important, if not the most important issue.
