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

Government fed by the people

Initials could mean different things to different people

I used to joke about the fuel meter in a car with E for Enough (instead of Empty), and F for Finished (instead of Full). Here is a new one...

Achar buys the new Automatic BMW X8 sport.

He drives the car perfectly well during the day, but at night the car just won’t move at all.

He tries driving the car at night for a week but still no luck.

He then furiously calls the BMW dealers and they send out a technician to him, the technician asks “ Sir, are you sure you are using the right gears?”

Full of anger Achar replies: “You fool, idiot man, how you could ask such a question, I'm not stupid!! I use D for the Day and N for the Night...”

If the above do not make sense, don't worry... they are not supposed to.

What my friend forwarded to me:

"Some Hospitals in Singapore may have names changed to cater to Kiasu Citizens...

Do you know why New Changi Hospital (NCH) changed its name to Changi General
Hospital (CGH)?

Because NCH stands for 'Never Come Home.

That's why business was very bad before it changed its name.

Now CGH stands for 'Can Go Home'. So business is picking up.

Business in Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is still going strong because
SGH stands for 'Sure Go Home'!

Now National University Hospital (NUH) is also considering a name change.
It stands for 'No Use Hospital'!

What about Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).
Not too good a name, no wonder so much problem. It stands for 'Tiam Tiam Si
Hospital' (Always Die or Die Quietly).

So, be careful of choosing which hospital to go if anyone is unwell. "
