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

Pua not fit to debate with Chua?

The cheek of Tee Yong! If Tee Yong was right in his claim that Tony had made a mistake in not taking into account liabilities when mentioning assets, did he not make many more claims (like the Rm1 billion scandal which trickled down to overpayment of Rm42 million, which was rebutted by Tony, but never reported in the msm) which were unsubstantiated? Wouldn't it be nice to take him on, now that he thinks Tony cannot read financial statements?

Based on party positions, Chua Tee Yong is MCA Young Professionals Chief and a member of MCA's Central Executive Committee. Tony Pua is DAP's National Publicity Secretary and is also a member of DAP's Central Executive Committee.

Datuk Chua Tee Yong succeeded his father in the constituency of Labis, Johore and he became an MP after winning in 2008. He was appointed Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister in 2010. He should not be too smug about his datukship and his deputy ministerial position which many would assume he was appointed deputy minister in place of his father, Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek, who does not hold any ministerial position, and awarded the royal title because of his position.

Because of Chua's relatively younger age as compared with Pua, many would think he is too young and inexperienced to debate with Pua, but now he claims Pua is not fit to debate with him! On what basis? Chua is a graduate from RMIT and is a chartered accountant by training. He was a CFO in a government linked company. Pua is a PPE graduate from Oxford University. He was formerly CEO of a SESDAQ listed company. He sold his company in Singapore and stood for election in Malaysia's PJ Utara constituency and became an MP in March 2008.

Tee Yong did question why Pua has been explaining instead of those in Selangor State Exco. But if he is being picky, Pua as an MP in Selangor certainly has more right than him as an MP of Johore, stirring up trouble in Selangor!

The least Tee Yong can do is accept Pua 's challenge to a debate, and let the people decide as to who is better in a debate. The mainstream media have always been partial to BN. What we get from them are propaganda instead of news.

William Leong's article is rather informative and gives further insight into Talam's history...
