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 appears 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

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.)

A bit on Russell Peters



I have never heard of him until recently and did not know he is this famous...

I was one of David Netto's friends on Facebook, invited to his son, Andrew Netto's show in PJ. I did not attend. He is an up and coming stand-up comedian as I recently found out...

Then this morning, my wife told me, our daughter went to a Russell Peters show with her aunt and cousin. In FB, there was mention about Andrew Netto did an opening act at Russell's. But from what I gather, Andrew is gaining fame and popularity on his own. And to think we get free laughs from our local political leaders already (go to Patrick Teoh's Niamah), it is surprising professional comedians could be such a success.

David, sorry I got the date mixed up. I thought the event was over which was why I described it as 'I did not attend'. Cheers.
