Pastorpreneurs

Seems like there’s a need among “prophets” and “pastors” to “own” business jets in order to better serve their victims congregations. To save me turning to Google for the debunking I’ve decided to keep notes here .

Please don’t be taken in by self-appointed preachers promising wealth, health and happiness: you get that by your own ingenuity.

Imagine my surprise when, about six hours later, I finished my business at Sowa and found a train load of coal parked at the mine gates.

Shop management use all manner of deceptions to capture our attention and extract more of our money from us, some of which are prohibited in places where consumer protection is taken seriously.

A simple one to start off with, 2 for slightly more than the price of 1:

Single lemons for P4.95, two in a pack for P12.40

Multiplication matters.
