Sneaky Redistribution of Wealth

Die Brosjure

Die Brosjure

Hierdie brosjure kom saam met my jongste eiendomsbelasting rekening.

Die Stad Kaapstad betaal 5% van die koste om ‘n sonverwarmer te installeer.

Maar waar kry hulle die geld vandaan? Van die belatingbetalers natuurlik! So, ons almal betaal vir die subsidies wat enkeles ontvang.

Wie is dit wat die subsidies kan opneem? Dis dié van ons wat wat genoeg geld oor het elke maand om vir sulke goed te betaal.

M.a.w. almal, arm mense ingesluit, se geldjies gaan na dié wat reeds welaf genoeg is.

Dieselfde ding, net op groter skaal gebeur met windplase. Welgestelde grondeienaars verdien dermiljoene uit subsidies wat uit ons sukkelaars se elektrisitetsrekeninge gegaps word.

Robin Hood draai om in sy graf.

  1. Dit lyk my die DA is werklik daar vir die rykes!

  2. But on the other hand it does save the environment ?

    • “Saving the environment” requires the most efficient use of resources. “Fossil” fuels yield about 30 units of energy for each unit used to generate those 30 units whereas solar and wind yield only between 2 and 3 units per input unit. This is due to the fact that the energy density of solar and wind is much less than fossil fuels. So on the whole, using fossil fuels is many times less wasteful and destructive than bio, wind and solar.

      • But building power stations to accommodate all is ! You have to take erection of power stations into your equation.

      • To replace one coal fired plant with wind/solar/bio requires many more acres of land and cannot be viable without huge subsidies. This makes energy unaffordable to the poor. High energy cost does not affect the wealthy. It makes no economic sense to replace efficient energy generation with inefficient methods.

      • Maybe we have crossed lines here, I am referring to the solar water heaters which are very effective.

      • Oh! OK. But let those who want it install at their own cost and not be subsidised by everyone else. Besides, I’m not convinced that most solar water heaters have a lifetime long enough to recoup the cost from electricity saved. I’ve seen some pretty decrepit installations in our neighbourhood.

  3. Die keer is jy heeltemal reg dink ek

  4. perdebytjie

    Ek voel al soos ‘n melkkoei!

  5. Ek is so gatvol vir al die korrupsie en skelmheid in ons land en die politieke rykes se selfsugtigheid
