    Ditto x 1000000

    Although, currently in Greece ppl want the rich to pay up and help with the country's debt. Is that much different from what the ANC wants at this point? It's just coicidental that the rich in SA are a white majority.

    Cool so I can steal the money in your bank as long as I steal it only once? I mean that is not wrong as long as it is legal right?

    It is a little racist, yes. Although, it is the whites that did benefit from apartheid. "All people that benefited from apartheid should be taxed" is all he is really saying, any black guys that you know that benefited directly from apartheid policy? I was a bit angry when I first heard him but it is the truth.

    I give them 2 months and all the tax money is spent, the poor are still poorer and the rich are still richer, but hey basic economics and common sense isn't for anyone, especially not men of the cloth of government bureaucracies.

    Actually how do you define if people are black or white? Should we implement the pencil test, in all honesty if a guy comes to me and ask me to be taxed I'm going to play the "hey I am black card"

    If the Dalai Lama needs to leave on a certain date to be here on time, and by the time he had to leave, his visa has not been granted, he has NO CHOICE but to drop his visa application. It is in fact a denial of the visa by default. Keeping quiet is an answer in itself!
    That may be true if his visa wasn't issued in the usual timeframe. Does he expect a fast-track response?

    He applied 5 weeks before his trip - I don't know what the usual processing time is.

    Then prove that direct monetary gains were received by people and tax those accordingly. Blanket tax on race is racist, not a little, it is racist. You can't be a little dead either.

    They might just, if they need to do damage control and the Dalai Lama will be here in time to give his peace conference on Saturday. But this is the ANC we are talking about and lets face it they have no moral backbone.

    The Lama said today they must shove it! Even if they approve now, it's too late - too many logistical problems for him. Nope SA screwed it up and the ANC wins the award of "International prick of the month"
