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

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.)

FAMA belongs to Umno?

It's been quite sometime since someone made a stupid statement like this:

May 14: In what is believed to be a first in the country, the Negri Sembilan state government announced that it would revoke the business licences of those who set up stalls at events organised by Pakatan Rakyat.

Malay-language tabloid Sinar Harian today quoted the state's exco member for Industry, Entrepreneurial and Cooperative Development Yunus Rahmat (pic) as saying he had received "complaints" of stalls being set up using "government facilities and equipment".

“We recently found a stall at a PAS ceramah in Kampung Bukit Serambai using the Fama umbrella," lamented Yunus, who is the Kuala Klawang state assemblyman, and added that he had instructed officers of Fama, the government's Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority, to report any use of government "equipment" at such events.

This reminds me of the time when Ali Rustam decided to de-list from his panel, medical practitioners in Malacca, for supporting the opposition.

So it seems it is alright for federal and state facilities to be used by BN, but not for Pakatan. But whether government or opposition really depends on the voters. I hope the voters in Negeri Sembilan will either vote him out or make him a state opposition assemblyman in the next general election.

What does he think of Najib, who is supposed to be on a working trip to London, scheduled to do this...?
