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

Mukhriz is an embarrassment and embarrassing himself

I am referring to Malaysiakini's report:

Mukhriz: Don't embarrass my dad twice
http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/205340

First of all, he was presumptuous in telling people that by voting Pakatan into power in Kedah in 2008, they  embarrassed his father, Tun Dr. Mahathir. Hello, he was PM of Malaysia for a very long 22 years, do we have to continue showing support for him after he retired? It is a case of what Cantonese would say, 'Mou kong tu mou kam lau!' In other words, it is better left unsaid, otherwise some people would be reminded and get angry that his dad probably overstayed people's welcome as PM.

Secondly, by suggesting to people not to embarrass his dad again by voting back Kedah to BN, especially knowing that he is due to be Menteri Besar if victory was achieved, and that it is also his dad's wish, he is presuming Kedahans still love his dad so much that they would listen to his advice and accede to his dad's wish!

Time has changed, the people want change, and dynasties and nepotism are among those long overdue for change.
