Dear Angie Motshekga… And colleagues

First of all let me congratulate you on somehow being able to hold on to the position of Minister of Basic Education which I still believe you don’t deserve. How you do it, I might never know. Secondly I need to make it clear that I am not a member of any political party nor a member of any academic institution. I’m writing this as a concerned South African citizen and also as a worried parent. I am black so you and your colleagues won’t be able to pull the race card on me nor any political card for that matter. I am not a black for rent as I’ve made it clear countless times before how racist(one who loves his race so much) I am. I am constantly sickened by how my fellow black compatriots keep selling their own skin for a capital gain but that’s something for another time.

Now that we got that out of the way I would like to focus more on the point in hand, The Education System or more recently the Matric fraud and utter failure.

You might not be aware of this but you are the most important person in South Africa. You hold the most important title in the country. More important than the President, more important than defense or finance ministries. Yours is the heartbeat of this country and all the other departments feed, either directly or indirectly, from the work of your department. So if you fail in your portfolio all the other departments as well as the private sector will fail. The opposite is also true. A country like Japan came from collapse shortly after the second world war to become the third largest economic powerhouse in the world. All because of education. Not weapons, not tax, not by building their president a mansion nor by taking mines and farms by force. Just simple old fashioned education.

So by fully grasping the importance of what you do would you be able to see that a quick effective and radical transformation is needed in your department.

It is however possible that you are aware of the above but you have been ordered by your bosses to deliberately underperform. See I know the benefits of having an ignorant and illiterate constituency. Zuma would have never got away with the Scorpions, Waterkloof, Nkandla and all those other countless sagas in a country of literates like Germany or France. Mbeki and gang would have never survived the arms deal saga. Nor would you have escaped prosecution for the textbook debacle if you were under the Chinese goverment.

The more stupid people are the simpler they can be controlled. Look at apartheid with bantu education, look at slavery and how blacks were not allowed to read and write. Stupid uneducated people can be controlled by means of SASSA grants, E-tolls, RDPs and the likes. Uneducated people don’t question the history the goverment feeds them. Uneducated people will overlook the fact that a man who started a military wing of a movement dies painted the most peaceful man on earth. I know how a party like ANC can benefit from failing matrics and school dropouts.

But the country will never, I’ll repeat that, NEVER survive a nation of illiterates. See everything in the monetary system is interlocked. The more people fail and dropout the more unemployable the nation would be. And the more unemployable the people are the more poor they will be. And the more poor they are the more they will be inclined to commit crime. The more crime there is the less foreign investment the country will get. And the cycle will go back and forth until the people revolt and there starts xenophobia and a civil war.

How many countries need I make example of for you to see the truth? We are ranked 146th out of 148 countries when it comes to the quality of our education according to “Global Information Technology Report 2014”.

Now let’s get to the latest Department of Education fraud. 2014 Matric.

In 2003 we had 1,252,071 learners enrol at schools across the country according to Dept. Of Education… Last year only 668,660, of which its 55% of the number of people who started with grade one in 2003, made it to matric. According to Umalusi the national pass rate is 75.8%… Now if you take into consideration the numbers of people who were supposed to have been in matric last year, 1,252,071, you would actually see that the matric pass rate is a big fraud. The actual pass rate would be somewhere around the 40%s. Schools often encourage, directly and indirectly, poor performing learners to drop out of school so as to maintain a high pass rate. So along the way our school system sweep learners under the rug so that the you can stand next to a microphone and lie to the nation through your yellow teeth. What happened to the other 500,000+(45%) learners that were supposed to have matriculated last year? Well they either queeing for SASSA now or mugging, raping, killing and committing all kinds of criminal activities.

All for the sake of ANC’s fabricated “good story to tell”. R2.2 million paid for a stadium to celebrate mediocrity? Couldn’t that money be made available to schools to offer better career orientations and life courses to potential drop outs? Couldn’t the goverment spend R264million on providing assistance to parents on how to breed winners? Should we be celebrating an actual 45%± pass rate achieved through a 30% pass mark?

Minister I am your boss as a taxpayer and a constituent. So I am demanding that you put real value to my tax money and start doing your job properly. If I don’t pay tax, you will not get a salary. If I don’t exercise my voting rights you would not get that fancy office and title. As your employer I am giving you an ultimatum as I’m sure I speak for the rest of concerned South African citizens and parents. You have until the end of this year to make effective changes to avoid a class suit instituted by me and the rest of concerned parents. Get off you high horse and start earning your salary.

Sincerely yours,
Your Boss
Mogomotsi Sebaetse

The world is coming to an end, in the words of PRINCE EA

The world is coming to an end,
The air is polluted, the oceans contaminated,
The animals are going extinct, the economy’s collapsed,
Education is shot, police are corrupt,
Intelligence is shunned and ignorance rewarded,

The people are depressed and angry
We can’t live with each other and we can’t live with ourselves,
So everyone’s medicated,
We pass each other on the streets,
And if we do speak it’s meaningless robotic communication,
More people want 15 seconds of fame,
Than a lifetime of meaning and purpose,
Because what’s popular is more important than what’s right,
Ratings are more important than the truth,

Our government builds twice as many prisons than schools
It’s easier to find a Big Mac than an apple
And when you find the apple
It’s been genetically processed and modified
Presidents lie, politicians trick us
Racism is still an issue and so is religion
Your God doesn’t exist, my God does and he is All-Loving
If you disagree with me I’ll kill you
Or even worse, I’ll argue you to death
92% of songs on the radio are about sex
Kids don’t play tag, they play twerk videos
The average person watches 5 hours of television a day
And it’s more violence on the screen than ever before
Technology has given us everything we could ever want
And at the same time stolen everything we really need
Pride is at an all time high, humility, an all time low
Everybody knows everything, everybody’s going somewhere
Ignoring someone, blaming somebody
Not many human beings left anymore, a lot of human doings
Plenty of human lingerings in the past, not many human beings

Money is still the root of all evil
Yet we tell our kids don’t get that degree
Their jobs don’t pay enough
Good deeds are only done when there’s a profit margin
Videos of the misfortunes of others go viral
We laugh and share them with our friends to laugh with us

Our role models today 60 years ago would have been examples of what not to be
There are places where people can legally be discriminated against Because they were born a certain way
Companies invest millions in hiring specialists to make Little girls feel like they need “make up” to be beautiful
Permanently lowering their self esteem
Because they will never be pretty enough
To meet those impossible standards
Corporations tell us buy, buy, buy, get this, get that
You must keep up, you must fit in
This will make you happy, but it never does for long

So what can we do in the face of all of this madness and chaos?
What is the solution?

We can love
Not the love you hear in your favorite song on the radio
I mean real love, true love, boundless love
You can love, love each other
From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed
Perform an act of kindness because that is contagious
We can be mindful during every interaction
Planting seeds of goodness
Showing a little more compassion than usual
We can forgive
Because 300 years from now will that grudge you hold against Your friend, your mother, your father have been worth it?
Instead of trying to change others we can change ourselves
We can change our hearts
We have been sold lies
Brainwashed by our leaders and those we trust
To not recognize our brothers and sisters
And to exhibit anger, hatred and cruelty
But once we truly love we will meet anger with sympathy
Hatred with compassion, cruelty with kindness
Love is the most powerful weapon on the face of the Earth
Robert Kennedy once said that
Few will have the greatness to bend history
But each of us can work to change a small portion of events
And in the total of all those act
Will be written in the history of a generation
So yes, the world is coming to an end
And the path towards a new beginning starts…
…within you

13 Contradictions from the Bible itself…

  1. Did Jesus Speak at His Hearing Before Pilate?

Matthew 27:11: Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” “Yes, it is as you say,” Jesus replied. When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. Then Pilate asked him, “Don’t you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?” But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge— to the great amazement of the governor.

Jesus doesn’t answer the charges.

John 18:37: “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

Jesus answers the charges.

  1. What Color Robe Was Jesus Given?

Matthew 27:28: They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him..

Jesus is given a scarlet robe.

John 19:2: The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe.

Jesus is given a purple robe.

  1. Who Carried Jesus’ Cross?

Mark 15:20b-24a: … and led him out to crucify him. And they compel one Simon a Cyrennian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus to bear his cross. And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, beingb interpreted, The place of a skull. And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. And when they had crucified him.

Simon of Cyrene carried the cross

John 19:16-18: Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha where they crucified him.

Jesus carried the cross.

  1. When Was Jesus Crucified?

Mark 15:25: And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

The third hour, as noted in the Amplified Bible, is 9am

John 19:14-16: And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he (Pilate) saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him over therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

The sixth hour is Noon.

  1. What Were the Centurion’s Words at the Cross?

Matthew 27:54: When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was

the Son of God!”

Luke 23:47: The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.”

  1. Where Was Jesus on the Sixth Hour of the Crucifixion?

Mark 15:32-33: And they that were crucified with him reviled him. And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

Christ was already on the cross at 9am.

John 19:14-15: And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him.

It was 9am as Jesus was being judged at Pilate’s palace.

  1. What Were Jesus’ Last Words on the Cross?

Matthew 27:46: Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani? that is to say, My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?

(Verse 50 says he cried out again before dying, but no mention is made of spoken words.)

Luke 23:46: Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.

John 19:30: It is finished

  1. How Long Did it Take for Jesus to Get to Heaven After the Crucifixion?

Matthew 12:40: For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Jesus wouldn’t ascend to heaven for 3 days. His journey is compared to Jonah’s 3 days in the belly of the fish.

Luke 23:42-43: And he said unto Jesus, “Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.” And Jesus said unto him, “Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise.”

Jesus is to be in Paradise that very day.

  1. Who Were the First Visitors to Jesus’ Tomb?

Matthew 28:1: After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary

Mark 16:1: When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body.

The two Marys, plus a third person, Salome

Luke 24:10: When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles.

The two Marys, Joanna, and “the others.”

John 20:1: Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.

Only Mary Magdalene

  1. Was the Stone Rolled Away?

Matthew 28:1-2: After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.

The stone was in place when they arrived, and the angel rolled it back.

Mark 16:4: But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

The stone had already been rolled away upon their arrival, noted also in Luke 24:2 and John 20:1.

  1. Who Did the Visitors Tell of Jesus’ Empty Tomb?

Matthew 28:8: So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

The visitors were overjoyed, and they ran to tell the disciples

Mark 16:8: Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.

They were afraid, and told no one.

Luke 24:9: When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.

They told the eleven and others.

John 20:10: Then the disciples went back to their homes, but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.

Mary informed Simon and the other disciple about the empty tomb, then she remained at the tomb crying.

  1. How Did Judas Die?

Matthew 27:3-8: Then Judas, which had betrayed him (Jesus), when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders. Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? See thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore, that field was called “The Field of Blood” unto this day.

Judas hanged himself

Acts 1:16-19: Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The Field of Blood.

Judas bought a field, fell down and his intestines spilled out.

  1. Where Did Jesus’ Ascension Take Place?

Mark 19:20: After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

The ascension took place presumably from a room while the disciples were together.

Luke 24:50-51: When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.

The ascension happened outside, at Bethany, near Jerusalem.

Acts 1: 12: Then they returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk from the city.

The ascension happened at Mt. Olivet

Matthew 28:16-20: Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew makes no mention of the ascension at all, an undoubtedly noteworthy event.
