How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Careless whisper

Think before we speak.

There is a Chinese saying: "A speech will either prosper or ruin a nation."

Many relationships soured because of careless speech. When a couple is too close with each other, they always forget mutual respect and courtesy. One may say something without considering if it would hurt the other.

A lady and her rich husband visited their construction site.

A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted, "Hi, Rosie! Remember me? We used to date in school."

On the way home, her husband teased her, "You are fortunate to have married me. Otherwise you will be the wife of a construction worker."

She answered, "You should be grateful you married me! Otherwise, he would have been the millionaire and not you."

It is a matter of perspective, isn't it? Life has always been.
