Let's Unite for One Cause... This Fight Has to Go On !!

"You come in with a clear conviction, that you believe in freedom, you believe in democracy. And you have so much affection for the people. You love your country. You want the country to succeed. And this is one, unique, multiracial, multi-religious country with a Muslim majority that should prove to the world that we can co-exist and succeed with a vibrant economy. Now, there's a lot of intimidation, a lot of efforts to derail this. If I choose to surrender, keep quiet, then it would adversely affect the process."
- Anwar Ibrahim
I don't know about you people... But This is exactly the Sentiment I have in Me now. We can't afford to stay Complacent as We have come This Far.
Fellow Malaysians, let us pause awhile and ask ourselves these questions: Where do our country's future lies with this Umno-led administration? Since the 12th General Election, it is clear that this Umnoputra is going to continue with their corrupted culture. We can see it being uncovered everywhere just over the past few weeks. Tourism, Works, Defence etc. etc And even the Police Force were not spare from it.
And that alone would give us a rough idea as to where our country is heading. Are we going to just keep quiet and allow them to have their orgies over our country's rich resources? What good is our country when all our rich natural resources come to a zilch? We are not too far from this reality and we are not even prepare for it.
You think Umno cares? Face this reality... they don't give a hoot about the country's future!! Can we wait? We can't wait 2 years. Situation will get worse as time pass with them goons at helm. We need to start now and push for Change!! Lets look back to Mahathir's time till the present: What have they achieve? For themselves, they have done a great job. They have manage to create their super-riches and with their money, they create Slavery among those umnoputra who prostituted themselves to their evil propaganda. All these at the expense of the rakyat and country. Our income per capita does not commensurate with the inflation meaning our standard of living deteriorate with time. The list can go on forever here. The Bottomline is: They Destroys!!
This Fight is not about Malay, Chinese, Indian, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism or Hinduism. This Fight is All about Saving Malaysia For United Malaysians!!

Now Yusli, lets see what you have to say about this...

AXIS INCORPORATION BERHAD ("the company") - Unusual Market Activity

Submitted By/Contact Person

We refer to Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad ("Bursa Securities") letter dated 30 July 2008 in relation to the unusual market activity of the Company's shares.

Pursuant to Paragraph 9.11 of the Listing Requirements of Bursa Securities, the Board of Directors of the Company wishes to announce that to the best knowledge, they are not aware of any of the following that may have contributed to the unusual market activity:

1) Any material corporate development relating to the Group's business and affairs not previously announced;

2) Any rumours or report concerning the business and affairs of the Group; and

3) Any other reasons to account for the unusual market activity.

The Company will make the necessary announcement to Bursa Securities of any material information should it falls under the Listing Requirements of Bursa Securities in particular Paragraph 9.03 on disclosure of material information.

Subsequently on 31/07/08 08:32:02, the Company requested for it's shares to be suspended for this following announcement:

Submission of the Audited Financial Statements

- Submission of Audited Financial Statements for the Financial year ended 31st March 2008 (hereinafter referred to as "AFS")
The Board of Directors of Axis ("Board") wishes to announce that at the Board of Directors' meeting held on 30 July 2008 at 6:40pm., the Board has unanimously resolved that the Company would not be able to submit its AfS by the deadline on 31 July 2008 as a result of material unresolved issues raised by our external auditors, Messrs Horwath during the Audit Committee meeting held at 3:35pm on 30 July 2008. The Management of Axis requires time to resolve these issues.
The Audit Committee has proposed and the Board has approved the need to appoint an independent firm of auditors to carry out a special audit immediately to address these issues.
The Company will make necessary announcements upon the outcome of the special audit.
This announcement is dated 30 July 2008
Now Yusli, what does these 2 announcements tell you? This type of sudden change of contradicting announcement has in fact, been happening on quite a frequent basis in our Exchange and it will continue to happen because you allow it to happen on your 'tidak apa' attitude.
The fact that the price of this said shares has started to come under selling pressure one week ahead of the Exchange query is enough to raise suspicion that someone is cashing in ahead with insider information. Why was the Exchange slow to institute a query? What element is involve here for the Exchange to institute a query? Whatever it is, there is really a big flaw in the Exchange system itself. And why was there no further investigation into this matter?
Yusli, i remember you made a press statement few days back asking investors to have confidence towards our share market as the foreigners' activities accounted for about 40% of our daily volume. That statement to me is all bulls without any foundation.
With this type of event that continues to plague our system and the lacklustre attitude of the administration of yours, you can forget about investors' confidence. Our main problem lies from within that is, Bad Governance, period! It has nothing to do with the world economy outlook.
Perhaps, we can look at all these positively for the fact that we have decouple ourselves from the world markets and from foreign funds.
So much for Credibility and Accountability.

Huyoh! Further confirmation to sodomy conspiracy...

I would like to write the following statements in the name of GOD whom I believe.
I am a goverment doctor in the rank of consultant working in hospital Kuala Lumpur. I know personally the doctors who examined Saiful on that day -28 June 2008.
The so called medical report mentioned in the NST is a fabrication or imagination by the UMNO paper. There is no such medical report submitted to the polis yet.
When examine Saiful, the specialist could not find any signs of Saiful being sodomised. Saiful was very cheerful, unlike real sodomised patient who will usually very sad and disturbed.
Saiful was subsequently admitted to the ward and observed for a day. He was completely well in the ward and not emotionally disturbed.
Please let RPK know of this.
This was the comment left in Susan Loone's blog in relation to the conspiracy by a group of people from the corridor of power abusing their position to fabricate and frame Anwar for sodomy.
And now, we have rumours that they are going ahead with charging Anwar for sodomy.
Not at all to me! It is because this bunch of egoistic desperados have their 'maruah' (pride) to maintain at all costs. Any failure to proceed with this case would spells their downfall. And now this fight is all about their lies against the intelligence of the rakyat by large.
Just because their mothers failed to advise them not to play with Fire, we rakyat, shall stay united to starve off their abusive and oppressive actions .
What say you?
I say 'We Fight the Good Fight'. Fight Fire with Fire!!!

what are we waiting for, fellow malaysians?....

Dear Fellow Rakyat Malaysia,

Whether you are a PR or BN supporter does not matter at all at this juncture.
What really matters now is that our nation is in a serious crisis. Please take a few minutes and ponder on what it means to you, your family, your friends and good neighbours when it is now abundantly clear that politicians in BN, especially in UMNO, have corrupted our government so badly till its almost paralysed.
A simple and straightforward view is this: when a cop stops your car, could you say with confidence that he's an honest cop or a crooked cop?
IF your house is burgled and the cops wish to prowl around the premises to gather evidence and look for traces, would you be confident enough to say that the cops are honest and are not working hand-in-glove with the local thieves?
IF you had the misfortune to have to sue a company for breach of contract, how would you know you'd get a fair hearing and get justice, when the defendant might just pay off the presiding judge?
This is precisely the situation in our country - an almost total breakdown in law and order, because the ruling politicians have corrupted the system so badly, its on the verge of collapse. The rot started with Tun Dr. M and we are now witnessing his legacy which is carried on as a proud tradition by UMNO.
Frankly I have no advice to offer as to how we could reconstruct the country.
All I can say is that its really sad our country has reached this state.
Perhaps we can only hope and pray that our fellow Malay brothers will wake up to the fact that its not the "pendatangs" but in fact its their very own Malay politician under the guise of "perjuangan Melayu" who had been raping and pillaging our country.
We, the "pendatangs" are helpless - there are so few of us in the police and the army, BUT if our Malay brothers can finally stand up against the criminal politicians, I am sure the "loyal pendatangs citizens" will do all they can to help rebuild and restore our country to its former glory.
So, now over to you, our Malay brother citizens - do your duty as our country needs your help now! We, the pendatang citizens will do ours when your duty is done. And we will help you where the bullshit NEP has failed you.

I found this letter posted somewhere in MalaysiaToday's portal as a comment to an article. Since it comes in a letter form pleading with fellow Malaysians, i thought it would help in a way to have this post in my blog to spread this message around. And to Mr SamYAp, i hope you don't mind me doing this... Please leave a comment when you come across this in my blog.

New script writer wanted for Bolehwood movie...

A simple medical report turned out to be a sensational exposure or evidence to further discredit the credibility of our administration and the police force in handling Anwar's sodomy case. The earlier difficulty in providing Saifool's police report to Anwar's lawyer has already casted some doubts to the truth behind this badly scripted fabricated plot to discredit the PR supremo.
The medical report done 4 hours before Saifool made the police report showed that there was zero tear or scar to rule out Saifool's claim of being sodomised by Anwar. How stupid the plotter behind all this episode can be. He or she could have asked Saifool to constipate himself for 3 days to allow his pooh to thicken and harden to finally inflict those tears and scar his ass right before he go for the medical check up.
(still cant stop laughing at their stupidity)
The reaction on the part of the police following this exposure left a lot to be desire. While CID director Mohd Bakri Zinin refused to comment to reporters' query, our Deputy IGP Ismail Omar threatened to investigate several news blogs that carry reports pertaining to the medical report. Investigate those news blogs? For treachery? Or for interfering with an ongoing investigation? Ismail, you might as well keep your mouth shut before you consult your bosses as to how you should lie to the people again.
The bottomline here is that there is this new evidence pointing to the fabrication of this sodomy case against Anwar and there should be a Royal Inquiry into the negligence of the police in handling this case. How can the police miss such a important piece of evidence? Probably, they have instruction from someone high up to frame up Anwar at all costs. They should have hire professionals to do a clean job rather than relying on our police force. Isn't Altantuya case a good telling proof as to the ability of our police force to do a clean cover-up job?
Let's see what is going to come out from botak's shit hole this time? I wont be surprise if they come out with Saifool's Statutory Declaration claiming that it was all in the first place plotted by Anwar and he acted through the script under duress.

Singapore does it again: pump prices slashed 10 cent while 'Malaysia does Dallas'

Pump prices fell 10 cents on Monday morning - the biggest cut since August 2003.
This is the fifth price drop in the last 20 days, with Shell leading the way. This was followed by Caltex and Singapore Petroleum Company (SPC).
This brings 98-octane to $2.110 a litre, 95-octane to $2.036 per litre and 92-octane to $2.003 per litre. Ultra premium petrol like Shell's V-power is at $2.239 a litre and Caltex's Platinum is at $2.236 a litre - before discount. Diesel also fell by 10 cents to $1.863 per litre.
SPC revised its pump prices across the board at 10 am on Monday.
Prices have eased recently while concerns mount about demand for oil in the face of prolonged weakness in the US economy, the world?s biggest energy consumer, analysts said.
Oil prices broke through the US$100 (S$135) level at the start of the year and then rose to a series of record highs on concerns about supply, stoked in part by tensions between the West and Iran over that country?s nuclear programme.
Unrest in key African producer Nigeria was another factor, analysts said.
The price of oil could drop to between US$70 and US$80 a barrel if the US dollar strengthens and concerns over Iran are reduced, Opec chief Chakib Khelil said on Saturday.
And Datuk Sharir said over the weekend that it is not time for our country to review the oil price from subsidy point of view and that of the hike was done when oil price was at USD125. For heaven sake, we had had a 78sen hike which was the most drastic one time hike as compared to other countries. What subsidy is he talking about here? Is government subsidy for oil base on a fixed amount now? And with lower domestic consumption, we have a lot more oil to export now. Bigger export income plus lesser subsidy. It all add up to a enormous figure they have in their hands now. Where is these money going?

here's something the rakyat need to plant into their mind...

I came across this well written article in The Sun last Friday. Thought it would be useful to share this on my blog so that many young minds would be opened up to the fact that this is Our Country and We definitely have a Say in what we want for Our Country.

where young views rule

It's all up to You
Democracy is often protrayed as a robust, invunerable lion-like beast. It is self-healing, immortal and inevitable.
The truth is somewhat less sanguine, as the recent history of the United States shows. Only with constant vigilance can we maintain its health. And democracy is worth maintaining. Singapore appears to be a successful autocratic state, only if we refuse to take into account statistics that show over half of the young people there want to leave (as reported in a local paper). It's a poor country that has no place young people. And while this has often been associated with economis opportunities, the lack of freedom is the reason most frequently cited by the emigrants I've met.
Malaysia is at a crossroads. And the future of the country lies, as always, not in the hands of politicians, bureaucrats and businesspeople, but in the hands of all of us. It is up to us, as Malaysians, to decide the type of country we want to live in. We have to decide how and who we want to govern us. This could be, as we have seen some quarters doing, through the streets and through peaceful demonstrations. There is a power in this approach, but there are also problems. One of the few successful demonstrations of modern people power, the Phillipines revolution of the late '80s and the subsequent overthrow of Joseph Estrada, were only possible because the army refused to open fire on the masses. The same was true in Moscow as Glasnost came under attack.
There are other ways. But they require one common factor. That, we citizens, takes responsibilty for the direction that our country takes. It is not enough to hang our head in shame at the shenanigans of our politicians, and bemoan the farce that too often characterises our parliamentary proceedings (from lipstick and high heels to leaks and potty politice). We have to take responsibility for these things.
Parliament, down to its architecture, was designed to be an august House. The Dewan Negara is a formidable room. The outside of the building reaches to the sky, it aspires upwards. Instead, the proceedings inside the House seem to leave it aspiring to the gutter. This is my fault, as it is your fault. It is the fault of our parents and our friends- we have collectively alolowed this to happen. And we can stop it from happening.
The outrage at the state of our judiciary is a start. It needs to be extent to the other offices of government. We need to demand that our elected representatives stop giving us facile excuses for inaction. My favourite since March 2008 is that state-level feedom of information legislation would contradict the Federal-level Official Secrets Act. This is a whitewash for not introducing legislation that would mean the state governments can be held accountable. Yet the voters who put in these state governments on a platform of reform seem to have swallowed the excuses, like the unpalatable excuses offered by the state governments before them.
One way of addressing this is to go on the street. There is nothing wrong with a peaceful demonstration. It is protected by the Constitution, and is seen in most countries as an important plank of democracy. BUt in Malaysia, demonstrating has been criminalised. There are other ways to register dissent and dissatisfaction. The first is by incessantly protesting against actions you find unpalatable. Write letters to the MPs responsible, to newspapers. Phone in to TV and radio stations. Make your voice heard.
Second, take responsibility for the society around you. Form action groups and take community-based action. Make appointments to see your elected representatives. Turn yourself and your friends into a lobby group. Take responsibility- whether it's a group of parents trying to improve educational outcomes in your local schools, responsibility for the neighbourhood watch groups to help bring down crime, or resposibilty for the behaviour of your elected representatives. Even responsibility for the ethics of thye product ( from the newspaper you buy to the decision not to invest in companies that invest in environmentally polluting practices).
This is the only way that democracy is meaningful and the only way to keep it healthy and alive- to bring it home.
Sonia thinks liberty and equality are the only real guarantors of security.

BMC saga: charge them all for attempted murder...

After reading through the first few witnesses recollection on the BMC incident from the Suhakam's inquiry, it is obvious that there is consistency in all their recollection that the police force had indeed acted beyond their duties. In this case, they have dragged Chang Jiun Haur out of his car and brutally beat him up without any provocation at all.
Who would, in their sane mind, dare to provoke a group of armed policemen? It just doesn't make sense at all. Yet the police were quick enough to draw up a attempted murder charge on him when he was the only one that landed in the hospital that night with severe injuries. It is a wonder he survived those brutal beatings by a group of more than 20 cowards.
Who would actually believe the police claim that Chang tried to run them down with his car? In the past, we have read from the newspaper on incidents whereby cars and lorries slammed into pedestrians or motorcyclists taking shelter under the bridge. And in most of those incidents, casualties and injuries are usually high. So if Chang have the intention to run them down, he would have step on his accelerator and ram the shit out of those cowards. Yet there is no report of injuries on their part. Not even a bruise as a matter of fact.
This is, in fact, a very clear and straight forward case. Why the need to waste time and money on an inquiry? This should indeed be trial in court by now and all those cowards should be jointly trial for attempted murder.
I really wonder whether any of those cowards have balls when they are alone.

state government's car maintenance cost... it smells like rotten fish!!

What?? It cost more than 50 thousand of taxpayers' money to maintain a Perdana annually? You must be fucking joking!!
Most dailies reported that the Trengganu state government had spent more than 300k to maintain two Perdana since 2004. And that works out to an average of 50k per Perdana annually.And we also have the Kelantan's and Pahang's Menteri Besar coming out in defense, justifying this high cost of maintaining a Perdana.
Are they forgetting that we do have many Perdana users in the country? And the fact that most of private Perdana users don't even spend 50k to maintain their car in the first few years alone. Imagine 50% of the cost of the car to maintain yearly... Either the quality of our national car sucks or somebody is receiving kickbacks from those authorized appointed workshop.
Logically, if someone were to spend that kind of money to maintain that car yearly, isn't it more advisable to change to a new car yearly? For the fact that all new cars comes with warranty and new cars don't breakdown that easily. Even if it did breakdown, it's still under warranty. That should more or less save all the trouble of maintaining such a car at that high a cost. How much can a Perdana depreciate in the first year? Definitely less than that astronomical figure.
Anyway, why the big fuss now? This is definitely a norm which have been practised by Umno led government for years only to be exposed now by Trengganu state government. Wrong? Then get all the states to open up their books for an independent audit on state's vehicles maintenance alone. I am sure we can find more shits everywhere.
So, shall we have all the states to come out with their car maintenance cost reports from 2004?? Don't penalise the present Trengganu state government... Go for the past administration.
Clearly. OSA is being used to cover up their wrongdoings. That explains why files were removed and destroyed when PR took over the 5 states.

of nuclear power plant and more dams... damn!!!

Utility giant Tenaga may construct the country's first nuclear power plant at a cost of RM10 billion but is braced for objections from the public.
Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said in June that Malaysia may consider nuclear power to meet its long-term energy needs amid surging global oil prices.
Currently, half of Malaysia's power plants run on gas. Other sources include coal and hydro-power.
Sarawak plans to build 12 hydroelectric dams to meet its future industrialisation needs.
Deputy Energy, Water and Communication Minister Datuk Joseph Salang Gandum said the dams were necessary to meet energy demands as it was projected to increase with the development of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy.
Currently, Sarawak's energy output is 933MW and it does not need any more energy.

What is all these? Energy Play? Ridiculous!! Read clearly between those lines. DPM said it is necessary to meet our long term needs amid surging global oil price. Yet 50% of our power plants are powered by GAS of which our country have in abundance. That alone make us self sufficient in terms of gas usage. No subsidise involve here as the gas belong to the country. Just nationalize all those power plants into one entity under the government and after taking off these usage, the remaining can be used for export to generate revenue. Why the need to spend RM10B to build a 1000MW nuclear powered power plant?

Now i question our long term needs. Cant Najib please explain to me what long term needs he is talking about? As far as i am concern, we are going backwards rather than forward. Look at our economic situation now. Perhaps he would like to show me some blueprint to substantiate his claim of increasing demand for energy in the future.
And today's headline in The Star mentioned about 12 more dams despite the fact that the 2400MW Bakun dam remained incomplete after more than 10 years. I am really disgusted with the way they justified the need to have these 'so-called' projects of theirs. If Bakun was meant for peninsular Malaysia, then we don't really need the nuclear power plant. What we are talking about here is about 1000MW and still there is a balance of 1400MW from Bakun which can be redirect to Sarawak itself. Just get the infrastructure right.
So much of my rant here. Perhaps, i should run some articles as to why we can do away with those 12 dams proposal..

What dams do

Whatever their purpose, dams regulate water flow. And that can cause a series of upstream and downstream problems.

Upstream and downstream:

Constant water level prevents sediment from consolidating, turning banks mucky.

Dissolved oxygen may fall, harming fish and shellfish.

Water may warm, injuring or killing fish that need cold water.

Upstream of the dam:

Wildlife habitat is flooded.

Fish are blocked from migrating and spawning (although the decline of the salmon is blamed largely on dams in the Northwest, steelhead, striped bass, sturgeon and alewife have similar spawning habits).

Silt in the dam impoundment can damage or destroy fish spawning grounds.

Downstream of the dam:

By regulating river flow, dams destroy habitat for organisms adapted to rising and falling water.

River stay inside their banks, so floodplains no longer get deposits of fertile sediment .

Dams block sediment flow, causing many changes downstream:

-The river bottom becomes more rocky, as sediment no longer fills gaps between larger stones.

-Beaches on the nearby ocean are starved of sand normally carried in the river, a particular problem in Southern California.

The same starvation can affect wetlands. The many dams on the Mississippi-Missouri rivers, for example, have deprived wetlands in the Gulf of Mexico of sediment, exposing coastal Louisiana to devastating hurricanes.

Oldies, not goodies

Still, the impetus for dam removal comes not from environmental damage, but from the simple fact that dams are getting long in the tooth: 25 percent of America's 2 million dams are older than 50 years.

Many of these codger dams have problems: They may have cracks. Water may have undermined the foundation. They may be so full of sediment that they cannot store water. They may have been built for a purpose that no longer exists. Or they may endanger swimmers or canoeists, who can get trapped and drown in "scour holes" that appear downstream of dams.

The dam-removal process often begins when a state inspector looks at a dam and insists on repairs. These often turn out to cost far more than removal, so repair can only be justified if the dam provides significant economic benefits. If a dam was built, for example, to power a grain mill that is long gone, or is supplying only a small amount of hydroelectricity, who would want to pay a million bucks to keep it going, when it could be ripped out for $50,000 or $100,000?

Dam bottom line

Internationally, the effects of dam construction are rather different. The World Commission on Dams, in its 2000 report, said large dams had created enormous social dislocation:

The negative social impacts reflect a pervasive and systematic failure to assess and account for the range of potential negative impacts on displaced and resettled people as well as downstream communities. Estimates suggest that some 40-80 million people have been displaced by dams worldwide while the livelihoods of many more living downstream were affected but not recognized. Mitigation,
compensation or resettlement programs were often inadequate.

Yes, there is a trend towards dam removal in the world now and we are talking about building more dams. I really wonder whether our so-called people's representatives know what they are doing. Was there any feasibility studies done before they embark on any project? Do we have other options? I suppose they don't even bother to. They only have one thing in their mind: how much can i get out of this? when can i get my money? All these regardless of the damage to the country's coffers and environment.

Malaysia in the limelight for all the wrong reasons...

Sodomy, Murder, DNA Tests Make `CSI Malaysia': William Pesek

July 21 (Bloomberg) -- It's becoming the highest-rating program in Asia: Malaysia's crime scene investigations.
Just like its wildly popular American counterparts, this crime drama -- call it ``CSI Malaysia'' -- features sex, murder, DNA samples, cover-ups and a colorful cast of characters wondering who's guilty of this or that.
At the center of Malaysia's CSI franchise is Anwar Ibrahim, a former deputy prime minister who did time on corruption and sodomy charges. Last week, Anwar was arrested on new sodomy claims. He accuses Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak -- who denies sexual-misconduct allegations related to a 28-year-old Mongolian woman killed two years ago -- of manufacturing the charges to discredit him.
The storyline is captivating this nation of 26 million people, most of whom are Muslim. It's sparking steamy and decidedly awkward debates about how one defines sodomy and whether it should be a crime. (It is under Malaysian law.
Surreal subplots abound. Mahathir Mohamad, the man in power when Anwar was jailed a decade ago, has been fighting a very public war of words against his successor, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, over corruption allegations.
Events in Kuala Lumpur would be far more entertaining if they were confined to a television screen -- and not denting the image of one of Asia's most promising economies.
Shifting in Seats
Many Malaysians aren't quite sure what to think. Are the charges against Anwar trumped up to keep him from toppling the government? Is the male aide who claims to have had sex with Anwar telling the truth? If Anwar is innocent -- he claims he has never engaged in sodomy -- why not submit a DNA sample and clear himself? If you were Anwar, would you trust authorities not to taint the DNA test?
It was impossible to avoid this issue at a Bloomberg panel discussion on July 17, the day after Anwar was arrested (and the day on which he was released). On the panel were bigwigs from the likes of Malaysia Airline System Bhd., Maxis Communications Bhd. and CIMB Investment Bank. You could see them shifting nervously in their seats as the issue of sodomy came up.
If Malaysians don't know what to make of Anwar's plight, you can imagine what foreign investors think. ``Summer of Discontent,'' is how Deutsche Bank AG analyst Teoh Su-Yin titled a recent report on Malaysian stocks.
Last week, it was hard to find an analyst predicting a quick resolution to Malaysia's fragile political backdrop. Nor could I find anyone in Kuala Lumpur who felt markets had fully priced in the negative impact of higher inflation on the economy and corporate earnings.
Changing World
What's so frustrating about Malaysia is the obvious potential. Its natural-resource-rich economy has achieved great things in the 50 years since independence from Britain. Twenty- five years ago, this was a tropical backwater. Today, Malaysia's modern, skyscraper-filled capital is home to the world's tallest twin buildings: the Petronas Towers.
Yet the world is moving ahead at a rapid pace, hastened by the rise of China and India. It won't wait for Malaysia, and the current scandals preoccupying the government are coming at the worst possible time. Malaysia should be acting boldly to increase its global competitiveness.
Nations as diverse as China, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam are working to raise their global influence. Five years from now, any of these economies might harness specific advantages, from low costs to human capital to technology, to challenge Malaysia's growth prospects.
Leadership Vacuum
Malaysia should start by fixing a key weakness: a four- decade-old affirmative-action program favoring the predominant Malay community. It limits investment, stifles competition and keeps the economy from becoming a meritocracy. It's a third-rail issue and isn't discussed seriously.
The leadership vacuum in Kuala Lumpur means Malaysia is squandering time its economy doesn't have. Its $151 billion economy is becoming a smaller blip on investors' radar screens, and politics deserve much of the blame.
Abdullah is under pressure to quit after his coalition's worst-ever election result in March. Earlier this month, he announced plans to stay in power for two more years as his chosen successor, Najib, faces sexual-misconduct allegations. What has the makings of a trashy novel has become reality, and it's not clear Malaysia's leaders see that.
Unstable Situation
Malaysia, it seems, is being run for the sole benefit of those in charge. The nation has become more about Abdullah's party, the United Malays National Organization, than the welfare of its people. That's not being lost on overseas observers.
``Investors are already considering the situation as unstable,'' says Tricia Yeoh, director of the Centre for Public Policy Studies in Kuala Lumpur. ``They are already reconsidering their options in the country. The new investors are possibly not looking at Malaysia as a viable option and previous investors would be thinking of extracting their funds to be put in more stable and viable locations.''
Financiers may be perfectly happy to watch CSI at home. They are far less keen on exposing their money to a whodunit playing out on Malaysia's national stage.

breaking news: pump prices fall again - third time in fortnight

PUMP prices fell for the third time in a fortnight, led again by Shell on Monday.
The reductions were two cents a litre for diesel and four cents for petrol, except for so-called ultra-premium petrols, which fell by three cents.
The latest adjustment brings a litre of 92-octane petrol to $2.133 a litre before discount; 95-octane to $2.166; and 98-octane to $2.24.
Shell's V-Power is now $2.369, while Caltex's Platinum is $2.366.
Diesel returned to sub-$2 level to $1.993.
The slide follows a sustained drop in international crude oil prices. Light, sweet crude for August delivery ended last week at US$128.88 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
A week earlier, it hit a record US$147.27.
Fool you, didn't i? That was for Singaporean.. not Us !! Yeah.. What happen to our government's monthly review on petrol price? The whole administration must be sleeping again. Or rather it was all intentional to raise the oil price without any intention to review or reduce it in the first place. If there was this intention to review, what happen? Inefficiency or our administration just don't have the knowledge or mechanism to monitor the situation. Do we really need to waste further taxpayer dollars to set up a new ministry or department just to monitor this situation?

umno is banking on the weakness of human nature... greed!!

First, we have our PM disclosing that there have been 3 talks held between Umno and Pas. Then followed by certain quarters from both sides coming out with their justifications over their secret meetings with our MSM help to blow up this issue.
So, what was those meetings all about here? While Umno tries hard to stay in power, we questioned the credibility of those Pas fellows involved in these dialogues. Malay unity and religion seemed to be the theme play here.
Hello... all those bickering about Malay unity and Islam is just excuses to divert attention away from the real offerings by Umno. What Umno can offer now is just a share of the taxpayers' dollar into their pocket with a Promise of power. Yeah right... Money politics at work here. It all eventually boils down to dollar and cents. Nothing to do with the welfare of our country.
Do we really need to raise our concern such reports? I don't really give a 'hoot' for i still believe the change during March 8th was all due to the maturity of the rakyat in general. No single person is going to influence the vast majority that easily anymore. Of course, unless you are from Umno where their people are more or less swaying to the tune of 'easy money'.
After saying that, it actually come as a 'blessing in disguise' for the coalition to discover their weaknesses at this juncture so that necessary steps can be taken to strengthen the coalition further.
For as long as everybody maintain this fight as a fight for the betterment of the country, the people will continue to stand behind those who share the same agenda... Malaysians for The Betterment of Malaysia!! Set aside racial segregation and stop using religion disgracefully.
Is all that so difficult to achieve?

Tajuddin Abdul Rahman: the pariah from pasir salak on psd's scholarship...

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nazri's stance on the the 55:45 ratio for bumiputras and non-bumiputras used by Public Services Department (PSD) to issue scholarships to university students was met with some resistant from within the ruling coalition.
Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (BN-Pasir Salak) then said,
" No one knows what is actually meant by the Constitution except for the forefathers who were directly involved in drafting it. We can only interpret it. But please don't misunderstand the original objective of the Constitution. To gain excellence for the bumiputra is only secondary. The primary objective is to strike a balance in human capital development among different races. Have we achieved this primary objective?
Are you (Nazri) trying to win the hearts of the people by saying this now? We don't want a populist government. If this is the stance of the government, i would not support it. I will leave the House. I won't compromise when it comes to the rights of bumiputra."
Something he also said during some heated exchange between him and the Opposition:
"I will defend bumiputra rights. you take my life if you want to! Let's go out (and fight about this) now."
Hey pariah!! You bloody make me sick to my guts with your brainless motherf**king bastard of bastards racial rants. Where the Hell you get your interpretation of the Constitution? From what that have been professed by generations of good-for-nothing UMNO goons? You made so much noise about defending bumiputra rights. Look at our country's situation now. What we are now is because we get idiots like you ruining the country with your racist cry. Tell me what have you done all your life to deserve to be in parliament? Play politics and that's just it.
Perhaps, you try to get some publicity for your selfish craze for power. But we rakyat definitely wont allow you to use racial remarks to achieve your means. You want violence? Don't do it in the parliament. You have balls, you walk on the street alone. I bet those who recognise you would oblige to a one to one duel with you. Count me in!! Pthooi!!
In the first place, you think we rakyat actually believe in that ratio of 55:45 spread. To hell with that doctored ratio. Why so difficult for PSD to make it transparent?
The very fact is that we, the people, had lost our trust and faith in this UMNO led government. So, why don't all of you just shut the fuck up and disappear from the face of this Earth.

another true classic from Raja Petra Kamarudin...

Raja Petra Kamarudin

My last few articles on Islam have certainly rubbed both Muslims and Christians the wrong way. Muslims feel it is unfair that I expose the weaknesses of Muslims, as the ‘enemies’ of Islam can use this information to run down Islam. As much as I may argue that the weaknesses of Muslims do not reflect the weaknesses of the religion but the weaknesses of those who profess the religion, they still find it very hard to grasp the meaning of this.
The non-Muslims, on the other hand, feel that while Muslims can criticise not only non-Muslims but their religion as well, non-Muslims, however, are not free to either defend themselves or retaliate. Engaging in a ‘my religion is not what you say it is’ or a ‘my religion is better than your religion’ debate will attract retaliation from the authorities. And they are right of course. Muslims are free to label the non-Islamic religions as fake, distorted or deviant religions, but heaven forbid the non-Muslims say the same thing about Islam.
I am not propagating that we allow or encourage the non-Muslims to insult Islam, though I have no problems if they insult Muslims as we can certainly agree that Muslims deserve these insults. I mean, when Muslims take two hours off from work on Friday to go to the mosque and then at 3.00pm they meet Chinese businessmen to collect bribes, how else can we treat Muslims except with contempt?
Okay, the normal argument is that these types of Muslims are the minority and should we whack Muslims in general just because of the actions of a few Muslims? But then the Malays have a saying that when one buffalo carries mud then the entire herd becomes muddy.Okay, I am in agreement that we cease whacking all Muslims in general on what a handful of Muslims do. I can also agree that just because a few Muslims are corrupted and hypocrites (pray in the mosque at lunchtime and indulge in corruption by teatime) it does not warrant me whacking the entire 16 million Malay-Muslim community. Sure, the son should not be made to carry the sins of the father. But I can subscribe to this only when the rest of the 16 million Malays-Muslims oppose these corrupt acts and shun corruption and reject corrupters. As much as we can argue that the corrupted Muslims are in the minority, it is, however, the majority who make it possible for the minority. So the majority are as guilty as the minority and they can’t hide behind the ‘this is done by only a few Muslims’ argument.
Let me put it another way. The mother and father hold their teenage daughter down while the uncle rapes her. Can we argue that only the uncle is guilty of rape and not the girl’s mother and father as well? Sure, it was the girl’s uncle who raped her. But this was only possible because the girl’s mother and father were accomplices to the rape. Without their help, the uncle would not have been able to rape her.
In this same situation, we have our political leaders raping the country.In fact, the country is not just being raped. It is being sodomised, and by its own leaders. Can we argue that these leaders are in the minority? Sure, maybe those raping or sodomising Malaysia number only one million. How can we blame the entire 26 million Malaysians or the 16 million Malays-Muslims for what one million do? And we shall not be far from that one million figure when we consider that there are more than one million people in Umno and the civil service. Maybe the ‘rapists’ and ‘sodomists’ are closer to four million than one million. Anyway, for arguments sake, let us work within this one million figure.
Okay, so only one million people are raping and sodomising Malaysia. And only 90% or so are Malays-Muslims while the rest are not. Is it fair, therefore, to blame all Malays-Muslims for what these one million people do? Is it justified that we whack all Malays-Muslims because of the actions of only 5% of the Malays-Muslims in Malaysia? Yes it is, and let me explain why I say so.
Barisan Nasional runs this country and the Chairman of Barisan Nasional becomes Prime Minister and decides on the Federal Cabinet line-up. He also decides who becomes head of the civil service (KSN), the Police Chief (IGP), the Anti-Corruption Agency head, the Attorney-General, the Chief Justice, head of the Customs Department, the Chief Ministers and Menteris Besar plus the EXCO line-up (in BN ruled states), and much more. The man who will become the Chairman of Barisan Nasional is he who is the President of Umno. Umno has an estimated 3.5 million Malay-Muslim members. Umno claims that 51% of the Malays-Muslims voted for it in the last general election. Not all the 3.5 million Umno members are voters and not all the 51% Malay-Muslim voters are Umno members. So the overlap between the Umno members who also voted for Umno is less -- meaning that we can total up the two with a slight discount of, say, two million.
The 3.5 million Umno members get to choose their branch heads and committee members beginning this month. About 20,000 Umno branches will be involved. Next month, the branch heads and committee members from these 20,000 or so Umno branches get to choose their 191 division heads and committee members. At the end of the year, about 2,500 or so delegates from the 191 Umno divisions get to choose their national leaders from the President down to their Supreme Council Members. And, after that, these winners get to run this country in the name of all the Malays-Muslims -- as what Umno is fond of claiming (that is, Umno represents ALL Malays-Muslims.
In short, more than half the Malays-Muslims choose their leaders either in the general election or in the Umno party election, both which are held this year. And these leaders rape and sodomise this country. And this raping and sodomising has been going on for half a century. Yet these Malays-Muslims insist on continuing to choose these same leaders in spite of the corruption that they perpetuate.
Yes, it may have been the uncle who raped his teenage niece. But the girl’s mother and father held their daughter down to enable the rape to happen. The girl’s mother and father are equally guilty of rape and they can’t absolve themselves of the crime just because it was not them who did the penetration.
How can I exempt the Malays-Muslims from the whacking? How can these Malays-Muslims argue that just because 5% of the Malays-Muslims are corrupted does not mean that all Malays-Muslims are also corrupted? Maybe only 5% of the Malays-Muslims are corrupted. Nevertheless, the rest of the Malays-Muslims made it possible for these 5% Malays-Muslims to perpetuate their corrupt deeds. If they had not been voted into positions of power then they would not have been able to continue their corrupt deeds as they have been doing so this last half a century.
The Malays-Muslims think that as long as they pray five times a day, go to the mosque on Friday, fast during the month or Ramadhan, pay their tithes, and go to Mekah to perform the pilgrimage, then they have fulfilled their Islamic obligations. What others do is the concern of others and of no concern to them. But that is where they are wrong. What others do IS your concern because you have made it possible for them to do what they are doing. So, the corrupt deeds of those you put in office become your corrupt deeds as well. That’s the way it goes.
So, no, I can’t exempt Malays-Muslims from the whacking. I shall continue to whack Malays-Muslims as long as those leaders they put into office rape and sodomise this country. And while 51% of the Malays voted for Umno, about 55% of the non-Malays also voted for Umno and the rest of Umno’s partners in Barisan Nasional. So Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and whatnot are also guilty of allowing corrupted leaders to rape and sodomise this country.Therefore, if the Malays-Muslims whack the non-Malays/non-Muslims I will only clap and cheer. Don’t look at me for sympathy. I have no sympathy for the non-Malays/non-Muslims who grumble that the Malays-Muslims can say all sorts of nasty things about the non-Islamic religions but they are not at liberty to reply. My reply to that is, “Padam muka (serves you right).”
Okay, okay, okay, I know what you are going to say. You are going to argue that you have no choice since…………..etc., etc., etc. My reply to that is still ‘padan muka’. If you have no balls then just stay quiet and accept the insults. You have no business complaining. Maybe I will join the other Malays-Muslims and whack Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism as well just to rub it in even more. Well, then again, maybe I will leave you alone to lick your wounds while you contemplate whether what is happening to you is entirely your fault.
Ouch!! That should hurt many... Good Sweeping Swipe, RPK.

WWF's campaign against global warming...

World Wildlife Fund was founded more than 45 years ago and for all this time, it has been protecting the future of Nature.

market trend: no promising sign with further setback from our incompetent government..

TheWhisperer said...

"My calculation tells me the oil bubble may burst once the price hit USD148.
Local economy is right about depression.. question is whether the world is well equip enough to avoid it.
Subprime at its peak totalled up to USD300 trillion. A conservative 10% non performing loan (NPL) would actually translate into a USD 30 trillion that need to be written off. And so far what have been written off is less than a trillion. Sub-prime woes ain't over yet.
That should explains the transfer of funds from equities into commodities and metal derivatives. Record prices been set mainly due to excessive speculation..
Dangerous precedent that could spell destruction to the world. That is why it is better to hold cash now only if we have any left by now.. lol"
27 June, 2008

That was my comment on crude price which i posted on article titled 'Crude Oil surpass the USD140 mark!!' when everybody was singing to the tune of crude price could reach the USD170 mark. Look like my calculation came close to reality for the time being. Please don't ask me how i arrive at that magic figure as it only came into my mind at that instance to add, subtract and multiply using levels and percentage. I now have the slightest idea on how i arrive at this USD148 figure.

Another similar incident happened during the late Feb 2007 stock market plunge. When it started, it occurred to me that i must calculate and try to get the bottom level. There i went adding, subtracting and multiplying on my calculator and i concluded that 1090 would be the bottom. And it happened exactly on the dot and came the big push. I did tried going backwards with my calculation and till today, i don't have any idea how i came to that 1090 level. My friends did suggested that i should keep a log on my calculations. Nah, it can never work that way. It has to be spontaneous at that instance when the mind is in the right frame with the fingers doing all the punching. And also the fact that each situation requires different sets of calculation as the factors involve varies.

Since my last post on June 5th ( i apologise for the long lapse ), i mentioned about the breach of 1200/1201 level would spell disaster to our market. A breach of this level would see an index-low lower than the August 2007 low. Please do not ask me what would be the low this time as my mind is still on holiday mood. However, i assure all of you that i would post it up immediately the moment my mind come out with one.

So, what is in store for us now? With the total daily volume been dwindled down to barely 300M, i expect this market to continue remain listless with downside bias. From the market cycle point of view, i suspect that we are going to have a downward trend for the first half of the cycle follow by a uptrend for the second half. To piece all these together, i foresee another wave of downtrend in August.

What we need to do now is to look for sign of a consistent build up in volume. Critical timing would be the last week of August and the first 4 days of September. Get ready to be involve then. Like i have said earlier, i don't have the index bottom yet but nevertheless, i will try to feel for one the soonest possible.
Meanwhile, sit back and relax. Unless you are involve in the futures derivative. This is the only place we can make our money for the time being. Short on strength but be careful towards the end of August. Don't get caught on your short position as the damage can be of serious consequences.
Again, it's only my 2 cent take here. So tread and trade at your own risk. I am just going to put my money where my mouth is.

anwar arrested despite the 2pm deadline...

First, we have the sodomy report that sprang the police to action efficiently. Then we have the roadblocks saga over the weekend. Now we have Anwar being arrested despite the 2pm deadline given to him by our CID director Commissioner Datuk Bakri Zinin.
And all out of a sudden, Anwar got arrested even before the deadline. What is all these about? Is our IGP himself involve in this contradictory saga? He has a reason to. Personal vendetta or whatever you want to call it.
Or these recent spurts of flexing muscle actions by the police force is just part of political ploy indirectly telling the people that our country is now a Police State.
Well, it surely looks like one and we are doomed for sure now.
They are going to stay in power at all cost. Never mind if the stories are all fabricated. As far as they are concerned, it's how they interpret their law that should matters. What happened to those stories of Hindraf linked to terrorists group? Where is the proof? See? It's going to be the same for sure.
That's just part of Umno's politics. This i have to salute them.
Finally, something for them to be proud of. Best in the World!!

support start pouring in for anwar...

Something interesting came into my mail today.
You can click on this link for international endorsement:
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the MercifulMay Peace and Blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad and his kin

“ … [M]ake peace between them justly, and act equitably. Lo! Allah loveth the equitable. / The believers are naught else than brothers. Therefore make peace between your brethren and observe your duty to Allah that perhaps ye may obtain mercy.” (The Holy Qur’an, Al-Hujurat, 49:9-10)

Al-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu,
We, the undersigned, believe the honorable brother Datuk Seri Dr. Anwar Ibrahim to be of the highest ethical and moral integrity, a devout Muslim and a devoted father and husband. He is universally recognized as an advocate for justice and fairness, and he has a long history of promoting Islam and championing Islamic ethical and charitable causes.
We are deeply concerned about the physical safety and freedom of our respected brother Datuk Seri Dr. Anwar Ibrahim. We are troubled by the unsubstantiated and clearly scurrilous claims made against him and his character. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:

“O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Ye abhor that (so abhor the other)! And keep your duty (to Allah). Lo! Allah is Relenting, Merciful.” (The Holy Qur’an, Al-Hujurat, 49:12)

Our beloved Malaysia is today one of the leading countries of the Muslim Ummah. It is an example of a successful modern Islamic country, and in many ways a model and example for other Muslim countries. This has been due to the Grace of Allah and then largely to the historical and invaluable efforts and contributions made by Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammed and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi (among others). Every Muslim who knows anything about Malaysia is proud and appreciative of these efforts. Equally, every Muslim who knows Malaysian politics is appreciative of the formidable political courage in leadership exhibited by Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammed during his time as Prime Minister of Malaysia and of the example of personal piety and forbearance that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi has given the Ummah today.

Indeed, perhaps precisely because of Malaysia’s prominence within the Ummah and the world, we would like to point out that the global Muslim community is paying close attention to the way our respected and honorable brother Dr. Anwar Ibrahim is treated. We have no wish to interfere in the internal politics of Malaysia, or in civil and criminal accusations within the country, which we reiterate are ultimately the business only of the Malaysian state and people. However, the spectacle, ten years ago, of our respected brother Datuk Seri Dr. Anwar Ibrahim sitting patiently in court after having been personally and illegally beaten up by then Police Chief of Malaysia is still fresh within our minds as a travesty of justice and impartiality under the law in a leading Muslim country. We are all still ashamed of that image, which will ever be indelibly engraved in our memories. So we remind our bothers in Malaysia that our beloved Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that justice is the very goal of government in Islam. And Allah Himself says in the Holy Qur’an:

Say: My Lord enjoineth justice …” (Al-A’raf, 7:29)

Thus we feel that we have a right — and indeed, an obligation under Islam — to strongly urge the Malaysian authorities to facilitate a swift, transparent and just resolution to this issue and resolutely ensure the safety, freedom and physical well-being of our honorable and respected brother Anwar Ibrahim. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:

“The Truth is from thy Lord (O Muhammad), so be not thou of those who waver.” (Al-Baqarah, 2:147)

Moreover, given the political implications of the timing of this latest incident; given the political undertones of the previous incidents of similar accusations made in 1998 — which led to the wrongful incarceration of Dr. Anwar Ibrahim for six years, and that have since been publicly refuted in the highest Malaysian court of law — and given the proven questionable nature of the authorities involved in the investigation, we feel morally obliged to also state our deep concern about the prospects of true justice for Anwar Ibrahim in the current authorities in the police and prosecution departments (whose leadership was personally involved in Dr. Anwar Ibrahim’s previous unjust accusations) without deliberate, careful, impartial and independent political oversight. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:

“Lo! Allah enjoineth justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk, and forbiddeth lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorteth you in order that ye may take heed.” (Al-Nahl, 16:90)

Finally, we are morally obliged as Muslims to also point out that our religion and our beloved Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) regard false accusations in these matters to be of extremely grave consequence. In fact, under Islamic Law, accusations of this magnitude that are not substantiated by four eye-witnesses of impeccable character (such as did not occur neither with these accusations nor with the previous ones) incur severe legal punishment only for the accusers themselves. Perhaps what is most insidious and disturbing, however, is the likely malevolent and slanderous intent behind these attacks on the moral character of our brother Dr. Anwar Ibrahim. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:

“When ye welcomed it with your tongues, and uttered with your mouths that whereof ye had no knowledge, ye counted it a trifle. In the sight of Allah it is very great. / Wherefor, when ye heard it, said ye not: It is not for us to speak of this. Glory be to Thee (O Allah)! This is awful calumny. / Allah admonisheth you that ye repeat not the like thereof ever, if ye are (in truth) believers.” (The Holy Qur’an, Surat Al-Nur, 24:15-17)

However, we have complete trust in Allah and so remain hopeful that the highest political authorities in Malaysia will, in sha Allah, secure an honest and just outcome to this deeply troubling situation. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:

Let there arise from you a band of people who invite to goodness, and enjoin right conduct and forbid wrong. Such are they who are successful.” (Aal-‘Imran, 3:104)

Wal-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu.

whisperer's take on last night's debate...

Last night's debate turned out to be a waste of time. While Anwar spoke with facts and figures to support his stance, Shabery Chick made a fool out of himself by trying to continue to propagate
the administration's lies with fictitious figures as provided by the administration.
In the first place, who would believe that our inflation rate still stand at 3% that continue to be made public by our administration? The true fact is when we go out and spend our money on neccesities, we definitely need to pay at least 25% more as compared to few months back. So forget about that 3% figure.
Then came this attempt by Shabery Chick to try and compare us to Norway with many more planted fools there giving him a big applause. I almost puked. But Anwar was quick to counter that by stating the fact that we cannot compare ourselves to Norway as their income per capita is 10 times higher than that of Malaysian per se. That alone should shut them up for good.
For heaven sake, we are a net oil exporter nation with many other rich resources and if we were to compare ourselves to other countries without what our country have like Singapore, Hong Kong and even Thailand, we ought to be ashamed of ourselves for what we actually are now. Now Shabery Chick, are you getting my point here?
It wasn't worthwhile going through that hour long debate. Even those commentators were making empty talks. Yeah right, talk cock like sing song!! At the end of it, wisdom and maturity was the difference. Guess who's lacking it.

all it takes is only one man to put malaysia's past and present leadership to shame...

With the recent human rights organisations' criticism on Singapore's style of governance that violates human rights and that is not of a liberal democracy, Sinagapore Grand old Minister Mentor, Lee Kuan Yew came out in a robust rebuttal with his guns blazing during the Economic Society of Singapore dialogue in conjunction to it's annual dinner.
Below are some of his rebuttal:
On integrity and honour
" That integrity and the sense of honour and anti-corruption has remained a characteristic of the PAP till today... The way we get things done- you may not like it but you cannot say we are doing it to get rich. In many other countries, people asked: Why is he doing this? To get money. And that ruins it all."
We had next to nothing
"Many countries had achieved Merdeka or whatever. It turned out to be an orgy of looting. So we were quite turned off. We were young, of course. This will ruin us. We've got nothing here: no oil, gas, plantation or timber. All we've got are roads, airport, wharf and infrastructure.
We've to make it work.
Had we inherited a huge oil country, like Angola or Nigeria, we might have gone the other way. But there was no such temptation when we came in. There was $15 million in the kitty. That was what we have in the reserves. Enough for one week's imports."
It's people that matter
"Can this system last? I'm not sure. I've done my job. I passed it on to the next generation. Goh Chok Tong has passed it to the next generation... If you have a competent team on board, honest and dedicated, it will last. If you have bums, then even the best institutions, it will fail. People decide. Not institutions. Institution help."
Well, sound pretty familiar and straight forward here. What Singapore is today is good enough to put Mahathir and Pak Lah to shame. Singapore separated from Malaya in 1963 and just look at them now... light years ahead of our country despite the fact that they are without natural resources. Perhaps, Mahathir would like to clarify why we still slack behind Singapore.
One Singapore dollar is worth RM2.40 today. I remembered during my younger days where our Ringgit was on par with Singapore dollar and Brunei dollar. And that wasn't long ago. As far as my memory carries me, our Ringgit started to rot in the mid seventies.
That was also the beginning of a new Destructive system of Governance in Malaysia where the system was run by incompetent people due to the propaganda of meritocracy.
Even till today, it is still being practised and that should more or less tells us where our future lies with this BN rule. With the global economy heading towards Depression, where would our country be when it strikes? Yes right, we will be on par with Zimbabwe. Wawasan 2020 would turn out to be the opposite.
Believe me or them? The choice is yours.
And to all Singaporeans, please do not complain too much about your government. As compare to what we have here, you all can consider yourselves much much luckier.

screw the police force, screw syed hamid, screw the judiciary, screw nazri, screw the gangsta ruling coalition and screw them all!!

Routine block? My Ass!! All roadblocks put up by the police around the entry points into the city of Kuala Lumpur was done unnecessarily as far as the people are concerned. Especially when it was done as if the city of Kuala Lumpur was about to be invaded by terrorists. Imagine one having to go through all the jams that stretched as long as 5 kilometres by merely trying to run an errand during the weekend. What more left to be said today when one have to go through further misery trying to get to work this morning. All these inconveniences due to the stupidity of those paranoid assholes we had for our country administration.
Then we get this court order restraining people from marching within a 5km radius of the parliament. What the f**k!! Court order issued without any solid evidence or action involve? What type of judiciary we have here in our country? The Kangaroo judiciary, i suppose. Can we obtain a court order to restrain the present government from running this country on grounds that they are destroying this country with their gangsta rule and continue to corrupt on our country resources? Can we?
So you people better stay on guard when you are walking in group around KLCC or Bangsar as you are within the 5 km radius from the parliament. They can come and nab and charge you for going against the court order. If you have to go for lunch or do an errand, you better do it alone just to avoid those hoodlums from up-keeping their law of the jungle.
And today, we have our sleeping PM assuring or rather lying to the people that our economy is still stable state. Our country is still the preferred destination for foreign investors? What a joke!! Pak Lah, please wake up and take a look at our country's domestic economy. Its has come to a standstill and coupled with increasing inflation that was caused by the excessive corruption by the previous and present administration.. give me some concrete evidences that show your sincerity in tackling this country woes. All talks made by you and your henchmen are cheap!! Lies and lies continues to be spread by your msm for years on a daily basis.
Allow me to share what i think of your two years transition plan. Perhaps, the two years transition plan is just to divert the attention away from your main evil intention. Najib doesn't want to be PM as he had already accepted the fact that he cant be the next PM with all those controversies that surrounds him. And you knew that you cant stay in power alone. So the collaboration of two crooks came into force for the purpose of buying more time to stay in power.
And with the recent oil hike, windfall taxes and further removal of gas subsidies, all those moves translate into your administration is going to have more money in hand. So am i wrong to conclude that the next two years will be a self enrichment program by your administration through the pretense of having projects to enlighten the people woes. Very smart delusive move indeed. First, you create the problem and get more money into your hands and then come out with fictitious projects to transfer those monies into your own pocket.
Here's the latest.. Our parliament speaker rejected the no confidence motion against the PM on grounds that it was of wrong choice of words. How come i am not surprise at all? Well, what do you expect when the whole administration is planted with their dogs who cant even form an opinion on their own through their God given senses, let alone have a mind of their own.
We are destined to doom-dom by the present administration, not by our choice but by our lacking of responsibility to put a stop to all these. From where i stand, the whole country need a drastic thorough system reforms. The People need Someone to stand up and lead us to put a Stop to all these Destruction. IF only, the Royalties can Unite and take a Stand...
