Quote of the week

As seductive as certain perspectives of international law may appear to those who disagree with the outcome of the interpretative exercise conducted by this Court in the contempt judgment, sight must not be lost of the proper place of international law, especially in respect of an application for rescission. The approach that my Brother adopts may be apposite in the context of an appeal, where a court is enjoined to consider whether the court a quo erred in its interpretation of the law. Although it should be clear by now, I shall repeat it once more: this is not an appeal, for this Court’s orders are not appealable. I am deeply concerned that seeking to rely on articles of the ICCPR as a basis for rescission constitutes nothing more than sophistry.

Zuma v Secretary of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector Including Organs of State and Others (CCT 52/21) [2021] ZACC 28 (17 September 2021)
24 February 2007

Useless but priceless information…

Before FNB irritated the President and his advisors, it irritated the rest of us by sponsoring widely advertised talks about how one should love one’s money, by one Suze Orman. That woman’s prattle about how one would become rich if one only thought about it, more seemed particularly galling in a country where many poor people go hungry at night.

In any case, now we hear that, Suze Orman, the financial guru to millions, is a lesbian in a committed relationship of seven years.

Money quote:

Orman says they’d like to get married, and both “have millions of dollars in our name. It’s killing me that upon my death, K.T. is going to lose 50 percent of everything I have to estate taxes. Or vice versa.”

Maybe if she just though positively she’ll manage to change the US into a wonderfully homo-tolerant society.and before you know it, same-sex marriage will be allowed in all 50 states.
