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

Josh Hong: Ini Kali lah!


While the BN-friendly mainstream media have been trying to drive a wedge between the opposition parties by raising the issue that Anwar Ibrahim’s candidature as prime minister is yet to be openly endorsed by PAS, these discredited “senior journalists” choose at the same time to gloss over the fact that Malaysians did not opt for Najib Abdul Razak either when they cast their ballots on March 8, 2008. 

Indeed, Najib has shown no shame in occupying Seri Perdana together with his wife for longer than necessary, lacking utterly the courage to seek his own mandate for a full four years.” 

Just look at the opposition alliance. Granted, it is made up of three parties with disparate ideologies, but what is not in dispute is that none of them is dominant enough to impose its will on the others. Compared this to Umno which has an omnipresence across the country except for Sarawak, complete with a monopoly on the country’s resources and public institutions, wouldn’t a new dawn usher in a different political culture that may help move the nation forward?” 

...racial politics is so entrenched that it cannot be rid of without breaking Umno’s dominance. While it is true that PAS as guided by religious principles could pose a challenge to a new government, the Islamic party, contesting only one-third of the parliamentary seats, would not be in a position to run the country as the racist Umno has been doing for more than five decades.”

Just mention to the Chinese names like Nurul Izzah Anwar, Rafizi Ramli and Khalid Samad, and you will see more applause than if it is Chua Soi Lek, Liow Tiong Lai and even Ong Tee Keat.

Yes, there is now a rare opportunity for Malaysians to put the notion of non-racial politics to the real test. It may or may not succeed, but I know for sure another mandate for Umno would only mean its tested formula is still working well and there would be no seismic change for decades to come.”
