Our enemy is cunning – Strike 1.
It seems our enemy has struck first and in two cunning and consecutive blows.
First, after all the hype around the 40c/litre petrol price increase in November, the petrol price WASN’T increased and we all heaved a collective sigh of relief.
Well, those of us buying PETROL did anyway..those of us that buy diesel , we got hit by a 50c/ litre increase!
Or in the euphoria of the zero price adjustment on petrol, did we forget that our diesel brothers got smacked hard?!
Oh, and one other little detail- before we all break out the Moet, the petrol price came down on the UNCONTROLLABLE element of the fuel price – the Rand/ Dollar exchange and the oil price.
The fuel levy didn’t change…or had we forgotten about that bit too?
The second strike was announcing a possible CUT in the petrol price in December!
Festive Season, money is tight, lower petrol price = more consumer spending.
Plus , we start to think ,” Hey, unchanged and then a cut? In December? Ok, finally we’re getting somewhere..”
We feel relief. Again.
We’re still forgetting something..The FUEL LEVY DIDN’T COME DOWN!!
They still get the R5+ per litre!
They’re still getting their revenue stream and what’s worse is that we WON’T feel that bad about it because we’re paying less per litre.
We’re just not paying THEM less per litre.
Our enemy lulled us into a false sense of relief. The would have us believe that they’re listening to us.
That, they’re on out side after all and they’re our…friends?
Our army has lost momentum.
I know this has worked because our recruitment has trickled away to a halt.
We aren’t seeing the engagement and shares and the likes and enlistments.
Are you that naive to believe this is NOT an actual strategy from the enemy at this time of year?
It happens just about every year..or have we forgotten that too?
When we were still all pissed off from the OCTOBER price hike, SA FUEL WAR started on the 20th October and everyone said ,”YEAH” F*ck this corruption! I’m sick and tired of being RIPPED OFF on the fuel price! Let’s FIGHT BACK!”
That was good for a bit…then the news of the unchanged petrol price (not diesel price) hit and that will started to wane a bit.
The the news of a possible DECREASE in December…that will is dead, gone and buried.
“A house divided cannot stand.”- Abraham Lincoln.
We are still split,divided and weak.
Petrol V Diesel.
As long as we still separate petrol and diesel motorists, our army will be divided.
We are allies & brothers in arms, not enemies.
This WAR is about the FUEL Price – not the petrol or diesel price!
WE ALL BUY FUEL.
Oh and remember the bit that the FUEL LEVY didn’t decrease?
Regain the Advantage.
Don’t you get it yet?
As long as we DON’T get organised, develop a strategy and execute it, the enemy WILL CONTINUE to take our money.
If you don’t do anything, you’ll get that “I’m being f*cked over feeling,” EVERY TIME YOU FILL UP.
But, if you ARE DOING SOMETHING, every time you fill up you KNOW the fight is coming.
You know. They don’t.
That brings a little smile..doesn’t it?
Now, are you pissed off again about the fuel price corruption?
THEN PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING :
3) GET PEOPLE YOU KNOW TO JOIN UP!!(If you haven’t already.)
4) DO #3 EVERY DAY FOR 15 MINUTES.(If you haven’t already.)
5) REPEAT 4# Until February 2nd 2019.
At the time of this post being written , WE HAVE 842 Soldiers.
We need at least 10 000…
Use your technology and communication networks (techcoms) to spread the message. Quietly and personally.
Ask people if they’ve heard of The SA FUEL WAR?
Ask them if they would,” Work from home for 10 days to bring the fuel price down to R12/litre?”
Tell them you have joined and why.
If we are going to WIN THIS WAR, WE ARE GOING TO NEED AN ARMY.
