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

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

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

Government fed by the people

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Year-end Humour from Traffic Cops in the US

US cops have a way with words! These are actual comments made by South Carolina troopers that were taken off their car videos:

when dealing with those with poor memory:
"You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?"

when dealing with name-droppers:
"I'm glad to hear that the chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail."

when dealing with those with superior complex:
"Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?"

when dealing with those who believe in quotas:
"Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."

or...

“No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can."

AND THE WINNER IS....

when dealing with conceited women:
"You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't. Sign here."
