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 appear 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

Malaysia xenophobic?

Just a coincidence.

According to Wikipedia, 'Xenophobia is a dislike or fear of people from other countries or of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange...'

According to an AAP report:


"Nick Xenophon denied entry to Malaysia, delegation scraps visit
From: AAP February 16, 2013 2:23PM

AUSTRALIAN politicians have called off a visit to Malaysia after Independent senator Nick Xenophon was refused entry to the country and detained pending deportation.

The group, comprising Senator Xenophon, Liberal MP Mal Washer, Nationals Senator John Williams and ALP MP Steve Georganas, were planning an unofficial visit ahead of Malaysia's upcoming elections.

They were to meet opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, as well as Malaysia's minister in charge of parliamentary affairs Mohammed Nazri and members of the group Bersih, the Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections.

Senator Xenophon, who arrived ahead of the others, proceeded no further than the immigration line.

He was told there was a technical glitch with his passport and then escorted to an area of holding cells, although he was not put in a cell.

“I was eventually told apologetically by immigration officials that I am on a watchlist, that there are orders from above in terms of security concerns and I have to be deported on the next flight out of here,'' he told Sky News..."

"We have a government that welcomes Australian toxic industry but fears an Australian senator, that begs invading Filipino outlaws to leave peacefully but deports the visiting Australian lawmaker.

What more reason do you need to oust such a moronic government?"
