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

When you are big enough, you can frighten people...

even with an innocuous statement!

A tall, hefty Bayi, new to the UK, stepped into a bar for a drink. Unfortunately, the regulars in the bar had a habit of picking on strangers. When the Bayi finished his drink, he found that the
bike he had parked outside had been stolen.

He went back into the bar, banged his fist on the table and yelled, "Which one of you bastards stole my bike?!?!?"

No one answered.

"Alright, I'm going to have another drink, and if my bike isn't back outside by the time I finish, I'm going to do what I did in Patiala! And I don't like to have to do what I did in Patiala!" he said calmly.

Some of the regulars shifted restlessly. The Bayi, true to his word, had another drink, walked outside and found that his bike had been returned outside the bar. Bayi started the bike to ride out.

The bartender wandered out of the bar and asked, "Sir, before you go... What happened in Patiala?"

The Bayi turned back and said, "I had to walk home."
