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

How I became an inadvertent seller of 100 shares of PM Holdings Bhd


On July 20, there were a few buyers willing to buy a few thousand lots (100 units each) @ 0.055 and some sellers offering to sell @0.065. I had been telling myself not to subject myself vulnerable to this possibility. But 40,000 shares @ 0.005 mean Rm200 difference. So I keyed in to sell at Rm0.06.

Soon after, the total for sale  at 6 sen (my 400 lots) was increased by someone to 1830 lots. Then it happened! This is common and likely to be the work of someone whose duty is to buy a minimum of 1 lot so that the share price shows an increase in price. The total lots sold increased from 50 to 51 and the number of lots for sale at 6 sen reduced to 1829. I knew I had it because this particular counter has been inactive for a long while, with rise or drop in price of 1/2 or 1 sen only. Sure enough, at the end of trading for the day, total lots sold remained at 51 and I had 399 lots unsold!

Proceeds from sale of 100 shares @ 6 sen: Rm6.00
Less: minimum brokerage of Rm12.00, Rm1.00 contract stamp and clearing fee of 1 sen
Net due from me: Rm7.01!

But I take it as a lesson learnt as well as a sign for me to keep the shares instead.
