Finally, Stephen Goodson, director of the South African Reserve Bank, continues to attempt to wake people up with regard to the monetary system. He also heads up the “Abolish Usury Party.” (FYI,
usury is the act of charging interest on moneylending.) See his article below.

        SOME years ago I explored the possibility of writing a PhD thesis on monetary reform, and was informed that I would have to find a promoter. However, as about 80% of the proposed work involved examining the history of monetary systems, I encountered an insurmountable difficulty,
as economic history as a subject ceased to be taught in most universities around the world about 20
years ago. This appears to have been a deliberate policy in order to conceal awareness of the prosperous debt and interest free societies of both recent and ancient civilizations.

        At university one was told that economics is a social science. In today’s harsh capitalist environment, for example in countries such as Greece and Ireland, there is little of it that can be
considered social, and as for it being a science, one could say that it is about as scientific as alchemy once was.

        Having encountered a number of the high priests of such august institutions as the BIS and IMF over the years, I can attest that economics is a religion, and a very orthodox one at that. Woe
betide anyone in academia, business, the media or politics who tries to dispute
the mantra of fractional reserve banking. (Those who have publicly expressed
their disbelief about similar “religions” such as the alleged global warming of the planet will understand
the feeling.)

        A few years ago while attending a seminar at a prestigious business school, a professor of 30 years standing informed the assembled directors of a variety of South African banks,
that banks make their profits from the difference in the lower interest that they pay depositors and the higher interest that they receive from borrowers.

        It was politely pointed out that these same deposits are lent on and leveraged up to 90% of the bank’s capital and reserves. The astonishing reply he gave was: “Gosh, I never thought of it that way.”

American humour on muslims

Januarie 17, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

This is politically incorrect…..but still funny!

Jeff Foxworthy on Muslims (American comedian, radio and TV personality)


1.. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor. You may be a Muslim

2.. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can’t afford shoes. You may be a Muslim

3.. You have more wives than teeth. You may be a Muslim

4.. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon unclean. You may be a Muslim

5.. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide. You may be a Muslim

6.. You can’t think of anyone you haven’t declared Jihad against. You may be a Muslim

7.. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing. You may be a Muslim

 8.. You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs. You may be a Muslim

9.. You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four. You may be a Muslim

10. You find this offensive or racist and don’t forward it. You may be a Muslim.


Blikskottel: knows that humour is sometimes used to highlight sad truths.

Disclaimer: Blikskottel does not take any responsibility for asma attacks, tripping of people over their own feet or any other stupidity attack, that this post might cause. Blikskottel does not always agree with the American take on muslims, nor wish to offend anyone, but merely wish to show how some people in the USA view muslims.

The right to travel freely

Januarie 15, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

The Freedom Charter, 1955

The law shall guarantee to all their right to speak, to organize, to meet together, to publish, to preach, to worship, and to educate their children; The privacy of the house from police raids shall be protected by law;

All shall be free to travel without restriction from countryside to towns, from province to province, and from South Africa abroad; Pass laws, permits and all other laws restricting these freedoms shall be abolished.


Here is what a USA court states this actually means:


Personal liberty largely consists of the Right of locomotion — to go where and when one pleases — only so far restrained as the Rights of others may make it necessary for the welfare of all other citizens. The Right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, by horsedrawn carriage, wagon, or automobile, is not a mere privilege which may be permitted or prohibited at will, but the common Right which he has under his Right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
[emphasis added] II Am.Jur. (1st) Constitutional Law, Sect.329, p.1135.

“The right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, in the ordinary course of life and business, is a common right which he has under the right to enjoy life and liberty, to acquire and possess property, and to pursue happiness and safety. It includes the right, in so doing, to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day, and under the existing modes of travel, includes the right to drive a horse drawn carriage or wagon thereon or to operate an automobile thereon, for the usual and ordinary purpose of life and business.” Teche Lines vs. Danforth, Miss., 12 S.2d 784; Thompson vs. Smith, supra.


Blikskottel..thus opposes all means of extracting any money for such road usage, wether tolls or license fees.

Funny kids prayers

Januarie 13, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

“Dear God, my Grandpa says you were around when he was a little boy. How far back do you go?

“Dear God, do you draw the lines around the countries? If you don’t, who does?”

“Dear God, did you mean for giraffes to look like that or was it an accident?”

“Dear God, maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they each had their own rooms. It works out OK with me and my brother.”

“Dear God, if you watch in Church on Sunday I will show you my new shoes.”

“Dear God, is Pastor Dan a friend of yours, or do you just know him through the business?” “Dear God, I didn’t think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tuesday night. That was really cool.”

“”Dear God, please take care of my daddy, mommy, sister, brother, my doggy and me. Oh, please take care of yourself, God. If anything happens to you, we’re gonna be in a big mess.”

“Dear God, if You can’t make me a better boy, don’t worry about it. I’m having a real good time like I am!”

“Dear God, I say your prayer every night, ‘lead us not into temptation and deliver us some e-mail’ but I never get an e-mail from you. Do you have my right address?”

“Dear God, instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don’t You just keep the ones You have?”

“Dear God, please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before. You can look it up.”

“Dear God, we read Thomas Edison made light, but in Sunday school they said You did it. I bet he stole your idea.”

“Dear God, did the unicorns miss the ark? Too bad the skunks didn’t miss.”

Internet under future government control?

Januarie 12, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

If I look at how the internet, social media and mobile phones have helped to change governments, I can understand that it will not be long before these things are under their complete control. China and other skunk states are allready in this situation and so so-called democratic states might follow:


The USA, with it inherently flawed government systems (ja flawed, as their economy shows), seems to be moving strongly in this direction and I will not be surprized to see the ANC also taking control of the internet. They surely are taking notice of what happened in north Africa and know that sooner or later, the rest of Africa’s people will also wake up and decide to make changes

Blikskottel..knows we have to defend our access to information at all cost.

Wette ontneem ook eerlikes van regte

Januarie 10, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

Wette, statute en regulasies word meestal gemaak om die kriminele in die samelewing vas te vat. Die probleem is dat in die proses word die eerlikes, ordentlikes en die wat geen rus verstoring veroorsaak nie, ook ontneem van regte en vryheid. Nog erger lei dit daartoe dat die groot groep se rus nou verstoor word deur polisie manne, meestal sonder enige rede.

Ek verkies om te glo dat die laasgenoemde laaste groep by verre nog ‘n meerderheid is en dus betaal die meerderheid die prys vir ‘n klein minderheid. Om al die redes, staan ek op en eis ek my individuele mense regte, soos in die republikeinse stelsel van regering dit hoort.

Blikskottel..verstaan dat demokrasie niks ander as mobokrasie is nie.

The real pekking order!

Januarie 9, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

Depending on what you believe, I offer a two options at the top:





It is time that every human being remembers who gives office, not power, to who? Government is not the boss of anyone or anything. The are merely servants put in place by human beings to do a very limited and spesific task and should be treated as such and also behave as such. If the ANC took heed of these truths, maybe RSA would have been in a better situation.

Then this one other thing that all human beings should know:

The courts belong to the people, those who serve in the courts belong to the people, and never must people belong to the courts. A dead entity(corporations & governments) should never be treated more humanely than the human beings who allow the corporations & government to exist by grace and conditional consent only.


Blikskottel…believes NO INDIVIDUAL HUMAN BEING can be governed without consent, as that would be slavery.

The other day I needed to go to the local NHS hospital but not

wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my blue jacket and

pinned on a plastic ID card that I had made off the Internet

onto the front of my jacket.

When I went into the hospital, I noticed that 3/4 of the people 

got up and left.  I guess they decided that they weren’t that

sick after all.  Cut at least 3 hours off my waiting time. Here’s

the patch.  Feel free to use it the next time you’re in need of

quicker emergency service. 


It also works at all supermarkets. It saves me hours.. 

At the Laundry, three minutes after entering, I had my choice

of any machine, most still running! 

Don’t try it at McDonald’s though….. The whole staff

disappeared and I never got my order !!!!!


Also………. never wear it while trying to get a taxi !


Blikskottel…understands their frustrations, but they asked for it.

BofA-ML voorspel dat die goudprys in die volgende 12 maande tot tussen $2 000 en $2 500 per fyn­ons kan styg.

Die lees ek vanmore op FIN24 en al wat dit vir my beteken is dat die ekonomie op die ou aarde nog in baie groter moeilikheid gaan beland. Die onbeheerste aanteel van mense is nou besig om lekker die poppo te slaan. Dit tesame met ‘n uiters bose bank stelsel, moreel korrupte regerings, uitgediende regerings vorme en ‘n “REGS” stelsel wat net een doel het nl om mense te beroof, gaan alles mooi saamwerk om nog heelwat burger oorlog situasies te veroorsaak.

Blikskottel..weet dat die regte oplosssing ongewild is en verwag daarom die ergste.

REAL peoples government

Januarie 1, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

I am a firm believer that municipal workers, the cops, speedthigs, the magistrates etc should work directly for the communities and people they serve. If we directly employed them, disciplined them and paid them, this type of thing would never have been seen. This photo was taken during the one day municipal strike in my hometown of Parys.

Blikskottel: Understands wat real peoples government is and what we have now is not it.
