It was just a few months ago that the public could purchase a 330ml Coke in a Can for a price, now the same can a little narrower and a little taller is on the shelves of every store pub and restaurant, yet only contains 300ml of Coke, at the same price of the not so old 330ml Coke can. How is it that they can get away with that so easily and no one complains and accepts it?
Now some say it’s because of the sugar tax imposed by the government, and some say it is because our living spaces are becoming smaller and Coca Cola made the new smaller size Coke’s smaller and longer so that they can fit better in your our little fridges or refrigerators. However if that was true why are we paying the sugar tax for Coca Cola by settling for 30ml less coke for the same price?
It does seem that Coca Cola refuses to lose the money they have to pay for the sugar tax, so they came up with this brilliant idea of letting the public pay, by reducing the size of the can (a saving for Coke) and then reducing the amount of coke in the can by 30ml. Therefore Coca Cola looses nothing in fact they still gain out of sales by selling us a smaller can of Coke for the same price as the 330ml a few months ago.
Once again the public is the loser and the mighty Coca Cola Company covers the governments sugar tax and in the process still manages to add a small profit.
Another question Googling this it seems that other countries have also changed to a longer narrower can but their content rangers from 320ml to 330ml as opposed to South Africa being only 300ml?
Why not add your comments or am I the only one to notice or have a problem with this, Coca Cola will be more than happy if no one comments and if no one does then you all deserve……………

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing and stopped at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.
The tailgating woman behind him was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.
He said, ”I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, giving the guy in front of you the finger and cursing at him. I noticed the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally ……..I assumed you had stolen the car.”

It seems very obvious from the settlement below that if you want to sue someone you wont be the one to get the farm. It becomes very clear that Americans are suing each other so easily because they are encouraged to do so not for your own gain or maybe for being the victim, but for the pockets of the ones that are going out of their way to encourage you to do so. Below is a settlement I recently spotted on a news site and where the clients sued for One Million Dollars, but the client or clients hardly got one-third of the money. So if the client was not the winner and the person being sued was not the winner then who walked away with the pot of gold? Could it be the ones who are encouraging you to to sue?
Out of the $1 million settlement, one the victims, who has retired from the department on duty disability, will receive $216,120, while the other will receive $74,427. The rest is split up among the city, lawyers’ fees and other costs.
The Victims get $ 290,547 less than one third and the rest $ 609,453 goes to costs. Well that hardly sound like fair it sounds more exploitation. If someone did you wrong and they will pay you $1,000,000 for your inconvenience why should the ones who never suffered at all in this situation walk away with almost all the money.
I believe this is just a way to exploit the people and make big money out of the victims by using their power to sue for you and then help themselves to more than 60% of the payout. It’s a good turnover for any business.

The Shocking Truth About Racism by Juju Mkize a Top Black Academic At the University Of Cape Town
The history of black South Africans has always been that of violence, death and destruction – NOT inflicted upon them by white people in this country. Shaka Zulu, during his 10-year reign butchered more than 2 million black people in South Africa, not counting the deaths during mass tribal migrations to escape his armies. He had his warriors clubbed to death upon the merest sign of weakness. He neither took a legal wife nor fathered a son, for fear that his heir would plot against him, and had his concubines executed if he discovered they were pregnant. When his mother died, he massacred thousands of his subjects so their families would mourn along with him. Shaka retained his throne through the worst kind of sheer terror, vast mass executions, torture and mindless butchery. His brother, Dingane, was no better. He took power after the assassination of Shaka and started his reign by butchering those loyal to Shaka.That,amongst many other horror stories of black-on-black violence, is the history of Black South Africa.
During the Apartheid years it was not better. Factional fighting and tribal conflict was again the main cause of violence and death amongst black South Africans. During the Apartheid era, from 1948 to 1994, the average life expectancy of black South Africans had risen to 64 years, on par with Europe’s average life expectancy. Infant death rates had by been reduced from 174 to 55 infant deaths per thousand, higher than Europe’s, but considerably lower than the rest of the African continent’s. The African population in South Africa increased by 50%.
Deaths due to political violence during apartheid: 21 000 people died in political violence in South Africa during apartheid of whom 14 000 died during the transition process from 1990 to 1994. This includes SA Defence Force actions, for instance the 600 deaths at Kassinga in Angola during the war in 1978. Of those deaths, the vast majority, 92%, have been primarily due to Africans killing Africans, such as the inter-tribal battles for territory. During the period June 1990 to July 1993 a total of 8580 (92%) of the 9 325 violent deaths during the period June 1990 to July 1993 were caused by Africans killing Africans, or as the news media often calls it, “Black on Black” violence – hostel killings, Inkatha Freedom Party versus ANC killings and taxi and turf war violence.
The security forces caused 518 deaths (5.6%) throughout this period. During the transitional period, the primary causes of deaths were not security forces nor white right-wing violence against blacks, but due to “black-on-black necklace murders”, tribal conflict between the ANC-IFP, bombs by the ANC and PAC’s military wings in shopping centers, landmines on farm roads, etc.
In this country TODAY (under black rule) as many as 18 000 people are murdered EVERY year. …and those are the official statistics. More than 400 000 people have been murdered in South Africa under ANC rule.
The past 20 years have been the most violent in the history of this country since the death of Shaka Zulu…and NONE of it has anything to do with WHITE people or APARTHEID… but I guess if you repeat the lie often enough foreigners actually start believing the drivel coming from your mouth, Mr. Uneducated President !!!”
Unfortunately people from all over the world believe the lies you have spread and wrongly blame the Whites for Racism!!

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.
Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.
Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.
Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle was:
She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.
She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.
Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.
Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.
After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.
What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?
Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”
Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that it is not going so well with me. my financial situation has deteriorated to the extend that I cannot afford the luxuries I am usually used to, and have taken for granted all my life.
As of today I have been forced to eat old and rotten cheese:
I even had to eat my first piece of dried out meat and was forced to drink some old wine to quench my thirst:
Even when it comes to my cars, I feel terrible riding around as none of my cars have roof’s anymore, it is so embarrassing:
and now to crown to all it all I don’t even have a bath in my home anymore it is outside,
I don’t know if I can handle this anymore, I just don’t.
But I am trying to stay positive through all of this and hoping that things will soon change, and I will be able to live the good life again. After all my friends have been so supporting by sharing my rotten cheese, eating my dried meat, drinking all my old wine and driving my roofless car and bathing in my outside bath. I feel they are trying to get me through this as they all say don’t worry things will come right, just give it time….we will be by your side till it does.
If you feel you want to comment you are welcome…..
If you think that the Easter Weekend is just another Holiday that you can kick back, relax and enjoy at your leisure. You are probably right, however there is one person that had to sacrifice his life for you to enjoy this wonderful weekend, and that is the Son Of My God, Jesus Christ. This article is not intended to spoil your wonderful weekend for you, if you have the time, take a few minutes and read what Jesus had to sacrifice for you.
At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to death by crucifixion, which at the time was the “worst” death penalty handed down to anyone and only the worst criminals were condemned to die by crucifixion. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, for unlike other criminals of the time condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus was nailed to the cross by His hands and feet, rather than tied. Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There’s a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the Wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself, so that He could breathe. Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus, He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs for long because of the pain, so, He was forced to alternate between arching His back and using his legs just to continue to breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage. Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours. Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds.
From common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side. But, do we remember the many wounds made to his body. A hammer driving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlapped and a nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. And…before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns (two to three-inch thorns) cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture. Jesus had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 5 liters (just over a gallon) of blood. Jesus poured all 5 liters of his blood. He had three nails hammered into His body; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest. All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross beam was almost 30 kg of weight, to which His hands were nailed).
Jesus had to endure this experience, so that you may have free access to God.
So that your sins can be “washed” away. All of them, with no exception!
JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU!
And, rose again on the third day!!!
May God bless you! Yes, I love God.
He is my source of life and my Savior. He keeps me alive and safe, both day and night. Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13.
My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. He has his food prepared for him. His meals are provided at no cost to him. He visits the doctor once a year for his checkup and again during the year, if any medical needs arise. For this he pays nothing and nothing is required of him. He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep. If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He receives these accommodations absolutely free. He is living like a king and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others who earn a living.
I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a ton of bricks ……
MY dog is a DEMOCRAT!
If you are a Democrat and not too busy please speak up and defend yourselves I know it will involve some effort but please comment on this fun story you will be most welcome, liberally, sorry I mean really…..
This Guy goes into a bar in Louisiana where there’s a robot bartender! The robot says, “What will you have?” The guy says, “Whiskey.” The robot brings back his drink and says to the man, “What’s your IQ?” The guy says,” 168.” The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.
The guy leaves, but he is curious, so he goes back into the bar. The robot bartender says, “What will you have?” The guy says, “Whiskey.” Again, the robot brings the man his drink and says, “What’s your IQ?” The guy says, “100.” The robot then starts to talk about Nascar, Budweiser, the Saints and LSU Tigers.
The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time. He goes back into the bar. The robot says, “What will you have?” The guy says, “Whiskey,” and the robot brings him his whiskey. The robot then says, “What’s your IQ?” The guy says, “Uh, about 50.”
The robot leans in real close and says, “SO, You people still happy with Obama……?”
If you feel you want to comment you are welcome, liberally, sorry I mean really…..
No dictionary has ever been able to satisfactorily define the difference between “complete” and “finished.” However, during a recent linguistic conference, held in London, England, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese linguist, was the presenter when he was asked to make that very distinction.
The question put to him by a colleague in the erudite audience was this: “Some say there is no difference between ‘complete’ and ‘finished’. Please explain the difference in a way that is easy to understand.”
Mr. Balgobin’s response: “When you marry the right woman, you are ‘complete’. If you marry the wrong woman, you are ‘finished’. And, if the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are ‘completely finished’.”
