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.)

Ah Jib Kor as Choy Sun Yeah?


Sorry, this pic (from FB) is irrelevant, other than the Chinese costume.

Instead of Santa Claus (since Christmas is over), with the coming Chinese New Year and PM's generous handouts (BR1M 2 and so on), it would not be wrong to place him as Choy Sun Yeah to many Chinese and non-Chinese who are eligible.

It was obvious BR1M 1 was way too early for GE purposes (could have been meant for an earlier GE date which did not materialise), so BR1M 2 becomes necessary. As if this is not clear enough as unethical buying of votes, DPM had even confirmed that if BN wins again, it will be continued indefinitely!

The worst has yet to come as there were rumours of Rm5 million per opposition candidate (presumably winnable, especially with good track record) who is willing to cross over. Just imagine what money can buy, to ensure victory at a General Election. To think that only a small number is required to ensure simple majority, the price (though a big sum to an individual) is nothing to BN, with its big war chest.

Najib had proven he could pull it in Perak, he might be encouraged to do it again nationally. It is our duty to ensure such potential candidates are not tempted, as we have witnessed how those who did so were lambasted and vilified by the general public, and hope that was enough deterrent. But, as they say, everyone has a price and some are more open to persuasion. So the amount of inducement could make a difference. After all, to some, being a successful MP and Minister in a Pakatan federal government is not going to be a lucrative proposition, what with accountability and transparency as guiding principles.
