CHRIS Rock is indeed a social critic of great wit and intelligence. A particular set involves how there's no one that gives less of a ***** than George Bush.
He goes on for a bit, but the punchline is that even if you were hanging off a cliff and all that you wanted was a *****, George would refuse because he doesn't give a *****!
An attitude that rings close to home with our administration, who honestly couldn't be bothered with the current state of affairs.
Widespread corruption, massive unemployment and an economy hurtling towards the dreaded R...; and a government that is utterly lost aside from a petty response to an "imperialist" periodical.
There isn't an ounce of leadership being displayed, plenty of talking without any substance; infrastructure act anyone?
More like political posturing, which is useless in the current climate where this country needs action and competent leadership.
The government spent R4.6bn on travel, food and entertainment, wow! I hate to repeat myself but can we afford this? I'm particularly peeved because I'm a taxpayer.
This lavishness added to the security and 13 car cavalcades is irresponsible and downright shamefull. How can the Minister of Traditional Interior Decorating possibly need such security? The deputy president laughed it off when presented with this incredible figure, but I guess if you're ignorant it would be funny!
So why is this circus allowed to go on? Simply because the voice that should call our leaders to order is too faint; and it needs to roar in order to take the administration to task even in the face of utter incompetence.
So until the people focus their attentions towards the country's leadership, instead of industry we will be but a whisper...
Or a Chris Rock joke.
