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

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.)

Let GE 13 be a Referendum for some major issues

The present term has only 6 months to go. Lately, we have been fed with propaganda by our BN controlled mainstream media as well as efforts by the opposition in their attempt to counter some of those outright lies and false allegations in the alternative media. Personally, it can be nauseous reading and watching the spin by BN, and I am sure those who helped the opposition to explain certain matters would have been tired of the same people harping on the same issues, sometimes with the same video footages, thus requiring the same explanations to counter them. Junior Chua's attempt at discrediting Talam settlement comes to mind.

Lately, even DPM Muhyiddin has taken a personal interest in the water issue in Selangor. It looks like a collision course likely to result in the courts. Before any further action by either side which might drag the matter into legal battles, why not let the people of Selangor decide at the elections? I am sure there are those like me who would wish to see a change at federal level to make known in no uncertain terms how the matter should be resolved.

There are other major issues which the public seem unhappy with the explanations given by the PM, DPM and other ministers like Nazri. Let them spin all they like. It is only a matter of months before we will know how the people feel about those unsatisfactory explanations which basically sweep everything under the carpet.
