President Zuma

I received  this via email, but thought you would be interested….

President Zuma, the current South Africa leader…noname.jpeg has purchased the most expensive aircraft in the world for his own personal use and those of his hirelings and underlings.

BOEING 747-8 for President Jacob Zuma cost $400 Million

Welcome aboard the custom-built plane that makes Air Force One look like The Wright Brothers’ first effort.
These extraordinary images show an enormous jumbo jet that has been converted into a luxury home for ZUMA

Again, let me repeat: this custom-built Boeing 747 is believed to have 

cost South African taxpayers $400 million.

Making it one of the most expensive purchases of all time.

 The jumbo jet would normally carry up to 600 passengers – but this version was built for just one insane man, although he will be able to fit dozens of guests.noname-7.jpeg

The level of luxury is out of this world.

The plane wouldn’t look out of place on Cribs.

Of course cable television and Internet are among the perks.

No need to fight for sofa space either, just the 14 TVs dotted about the vessel.

 More sleeping space is provided in the “aeroloft” on the top deck of the vessel, with eight double beds for passengers who prefer to get some shut-eye on flights.

You know it’s good when your plane has a stateroom.

Look out for this baby flying above you.

NOW FOR THE BIG QUESTION:

 

Does the United States of America provide aid to South Africa…?

 

Yup – over $571,000,000.

 

Just enough to pay for this toy, with a little change left over.  Isn’t it heartwarming to see how our “Foreign Aid” is benefiting the underprivileged of other countries, while our own Veterans and Senior Citizens can’t get decent medical treatment or health care! Isn’t it heart-warming to learn that money, which could have gone to  help our own citizens, or maybe pay off our national debt and/or rebuild our aging infrastructure was give away, so other leaders could have such an expensive, but unnecessary plane?  If you really want different results in 2017, we can make a big change in November.0014_insanity_einstein_quote_960.jpg

      1. Exactly! I am acquainted with a severely disabled woman who doesn’t even have enough to eat half the time and whatever they pay her has stayed the same for years – despite inflation. I am sure she isn’t the only one in that sort of situation. Just think what that amount of money could have done to help those in need!

      2. I still want to see one particular UK politician manage on £50 a week (but that’s before his expenses and normal living costs have been deducted) as he stated in response to someone who couldn’t. TPTB haven’t a clue about real life and hardship.

      3. A bit over a decade ago, my husband and I decided to have an adventure – while we were still young enough to survive it… We moved aboard a catamaran and set out to investigate the world (on a boat just like Xander’s)…. We lived on $882. per month for about 5 years…. and learned a lot about ourselves – as well as what is really important.

      4. It was a fun lifestyle, and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. BUT, if one is ill, etc., it can quickly get dicy.
        It was also a major learning experience, which I think everyone should be privileged to have – particularly if they are in a position to say how much someone else needs to live.

      5. Precisely. The thing is that everyone should take their time planning Plan B – then hope they don’t need it. Unfortunately, too often I see people continue to hope for the best, only to realize too late that they are out of options.

      6. Exactly! And slow as boats move, we always planned moves well in advance. In 2005, we sailed the Intracoastal Waterway (East Coast of US)…. ’05 was the year that hurricanes went through Z and into the Greek alphabet! We spent a lot of time running for ‘hurricane holes’.

    1. I hope you are right about those toast quarters!
      I can NOT image the mindset of a person who would spend that sort of cash on frivolous ostentation, when I’m sure there are citizens in his country who needed basics, like water, food, etc.

      1. Exactly! I’m thinking that their cohorts and those who behave that way, should join them, too… That includes Obama, who seems to have spent a lot of effort undermining our Constitution and certain FBI officials who fail to deal with crime.
