    Default Absolutely Disgusted

    So I'm sitting in the office and my colleague gets a call from a teacher at Bryanston Primary.

    The teachers have locked themselves into the hall and pleaded with the parents to come and fetch their children WITH HASTE as the strikers were getting violent and attacking the kids in uniforms and throwing stones at the teachers. Apparently the strikers have gain entry to the school property and intimidating pupils and teachers.

    WTF! These are grade 0 kids who are being harassed and sworn at!!! These are primary school kids!!! What threat are they to anyone??

    Should any person/group put my child's life at risk - then I will not be accountable for my actions.

    My old 'Proudly South African' attitude is being worn away day by day.

    Same thing at Delta Park & Blairgowrie schools.
    I have no problem with someone striking for higher wages, but to intimidate non-striking workers, volunteers and kids, & to endanger the lives of the elderly & patients :evil:

    Not their humanity, but moving further away from God - these strikers are not religious people, they have no God in their lives.

    Neither do I - but I do not conduct myself in such an inappropriate manner. That is no excuse.

    Sorry, no offence to the non-believers. What I am trying to say is that, if you have God in your life, this will not happen (you will never act like this) ...... ok, I don't want to get technical !

    Sorry...maybe i should clarify - before this becomes a religious topic :roll: :roll: - just because I commented under the name "Lucyfer"

    By saying they had lost their humanity I actually meant that these people seem to have lost every ounce of compassion, benevolence, i.e. they are acting in an inhumane way...let alone unreasonable and in some cases unthinkable...

    We are human and therefore not classified by "Spirit", people have characteristics that "seperate" us from being classified as "gods"....and yes belief in a God will make you something but unfortunately it does not always make you a moral or wise person.

    I am a 100% proud non believer, I live a good life, I do not harm people or animals, or destroy property.
    I am educated and have a family and I am not a hipocrite

    So what exactly has your invisible friend got to do with the strike?

    No words of wisdom, no thought of the day, no nothing.

    Got petrol (in jerry cans) will travel, but not to far.

    Nothing directly... since those who do believe, also believe that we were given the "freedom of will". (I am also not a "believer", so my remarks are based on what I know of it)

    His point, is that, perhaps (if I am not mistaken), that the people who are showing such disregard for their fellow human beings are the hipocrits...

    Let us not get into a religious debate here... that was not the original subject of the thread...

    Don't worry, I am not one of those Christians walking around with my bible under my arm, standing on a pedestal and telling everyone how bad they are

    I am just here, and not shy to say I am a Christian. But, we all have free choice

    Agreed, let us not turn this into a religious thread. My apologies if I offended anyone.

    On Monday morning, Highveld news reported that Govt. had obtained an interdict preventing any strikers from intimidating non-strikers and from obstructing public services. What's the point if no-one is doing a bloody thing to prevent it when the strikers decided to ignore the interdict and cause havoc anyway ??? :evil:
    In retrospect, the future looks quite promising ...

    Drove past Lonehill Crawford and there were lots of security milling about. I suppose they are trying to keep a high profile and the picketers will not stop and harass????

    Sorry Richard ! .......... PS. I just heard from a friend of mine that this was in the news. I hope there are enough people with sense in government that will wake up and do something about this.
