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

Rubbish thy neighbour...

seems to be the motto of my neighbour because his own place is spic and span...

(Click for bigger image)

The items seen in the above picture of what we see in front of our house are his creations:

the plot of unsightly but useful (to them) plants and a barrel, the unwanted 'mother-in-law's tongue' just taken out of a pot, the freshly cut palm leaves, and the pigeons (early birds, not yet the full force) waiting for their daily grains thrown on our side of the road. The bird shit accumulated over time can be seen on the blue roof below the electric cable.

Call me racist if U want. But this is typical of neighbor from a particular race in Malaysia. Parking & blocking our main entrance is also a major problem. I hv experienced it.
My advice: Sell yr house & Move out!

Sorry, I do not wish to be drawn into a racist discussion on this matter. Why should we move out?

My Law-Abiding Neighbour

My neighbour is a law-abiding citizen
A paragon anyone would praise.
He cleans is garden spick and span
And ties his rubbish in a garbage bag
Which he leaves by the road
Outside the house of his neighbour!
Oh he does it in the wee hours
When no one would see dastardly deed
So that he remains a pillar of his society.
