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

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.)

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

BN running out of ideas?

Najib started BR1M with Rm500. Wrong timing first time, so BR1M 2.0 followed. Encouraged by response (demand exceeded expectation, only natural to be kiasu), BR1M promised to be an annual distribution. When Pakatan offers Rm1,000 if elected, BN offers Rm1,200! But I believe this kind of bribery will backfire on BN.

This is a true story:

A local young Indian rubber tapper's application for BR1M the first time was rejected because his income exceeded Rm3,000 a month. For BR1M 2.0, his appeal was successful. 

One day, in a coffee shop, a senior Chinese man called him, 'Tambi, lu ada dapat Rm500?' (Young man or brother, did you get the Rm500?) 

He replied, 'Sudah dapat.' He was then asked, 'Undi apa parti?' (Which party are you going to vote?) 

He replied, 'Oh itu, tak boleh cakap. Rahsia.' (Oh that I cannot tell you, it's supposed to be secret.)

The Chinese man then advised him, 'Duit Rm500 itu masuk pocket, tapi undi, undi Rocket!' (You can pocket the Rm500, but when you vote, vote the Rocket (DAP)).
