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

The hand that rocks the cradle is now rocking the world...

with their philosophies in life.

Actually, it is more like a psywar, with each side thinking he or she is superior. For the first time, a lady friend commented that modern man has a hard life (Hokien: 'phai meah'), having to look after baby and do the household chores, unlike in the old days when a man of the house (including his sons) was served by his wife or daughters.

But then again, there are things which bother women, like the reason behind this excuse for day off...

Best excuse by a female employee !

This incident, is supposed to have happened in real life.

My friend, who is a the head of Human Resources at a very large bank, says that the best excuse for absenteeism, that he had ever received in his career of almost 22 years, was from a female Indian employee, at their bank's headquarters at Mumbai, India, in July, 2010.

He says when the lady, was questioned on why she remained absent the previous day, she simply replied:

"But sir, I had no option. My husband was on casual leave yesterday and was at home. By mistake he took pills from the wrong bottle in our medicine cabinet and ended up consuming an over-dose of Viagra!
Now how could I have left him, all alone at home, with the house-maid? "
