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

Government fed by the people

Don't order your cake by phone

The first example, I posted before:

I chanced upon Mel B's reality television show, It's a Scary World. Mel B or Melanie Brown is aka Scary Spice of Spice Girls. Of course, the best known is still Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham.

Anyway, the show featured Mel B, her husband and daughters in their everyday life. The funny part of one episode was when her husband ordered a cake for their daughter's graduation day celebration. He spoke to the cake shop person, 'Put the name Phoenix in the middle' and when the cake arrived, it had 'Phoenix in the middle' on it!

What Difference Does It Make Whether Top Or Bottom?

A man wanted to celebrate his wife's Birthday by throwing a party. So he ordered a birthday cake for her.
The salesman asked him on the phone what message he wanted put on the cake.
He thought for a moment and said, put "you are getting older but you are getting better".
The salesman asked "how do you want me to put it?"
The man said 'Well...put "You are getting older" at the top and
"but you are getting better" at the bottom.'
When the cake was unveiled at the party all the guests were aghast at the message on the cake.

It read: "You are getting older at the top, but you are getting better at the bottom"
