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

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

Ode to daughters

Baby girls are the comfort of the eyes of their father!
They hold the key to their mothers hearts!
Daughters are really unique.
They care for their parents even after they are married.
It is rightly said, "A son is a son till he gets a Wife, a daughter is a daughter all her Life!"

And here is the little story (not really convincing)...

A couple made a deal the night of their Marriage to 'NOT open the door of their room to anybody who comes knocking in the morning for any reason!'

In the morning, the parents of the husband came and knocked on the door. The husband and the wife were looking at each other and as they agreed before, they didn't open the door.

After a while, the parents of the bride came knocking at the door to check on them. The couple were looking at each other, then the bride dropped a tear and started crying.  She said: "I cannot keep them knocking and not open the door... I miss them already"

The husband didn't say anything and he let her open the door for her parents.

Years  passed and the couple had 5 children: the first ones were boys and the 5th was a little girl.  

When she was born the father was extremely happy that Almighty blessed him with her, and he threw a huge party for her in grand style. People were so amazed with his joy and his happiness that they asked him, "Why are you so happy with her, more than you were before, with her older brothers?"
He answered simply: "She is the one who will open the door for me."

Comment: I run the risk of upsetting my son because I have two daughters as well. But in the story, it was the son himself who realised his own uncaring nature, and later as a father, he wished for a daughter. Seriously, it is only when we have a choice, we try to choose. What about those who tried unsuccessfully to have a baby?
