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

How a missing wallet saved a marriage

We have often watched it in movies, when a couple fell out of love for one reason or other. Either husband or wife refused to take the initiative to try again to see if the relationship can be saved. Then, one of them met with an accident and remains comatose, or diagnosed with a terminal illness with just months to live. Often, when it comes to the crunch, everything can be forgiven and true feelings poured out. But then, it could be too late when one realises that he or she cannot live without the other.

In fact, some scripts would have one pretending to be seriously ill, just to test the other half's reaction. Often, as the script goes, it works and they make up.

Here is another twist to a similar story...

It was their anniversary, and Aisha was waiting for her husband Rajiv to show up.

Things had changed since their marriage, the once cute couple couldn't-live-without-each-other had turned bitter.

Fighting over every little things, both didn't like the way things had changed.

Aisha was waiting to see if Rajiv remembered it was their anniversary!

Just as the doorbell rang she ran to find her husband, wet and smiling with a bunch of flowers in his hand.

The two started re-living the old days. Making up for fights, then was dinner plan for champagne, light music
And it was raining outside! Just perfect to be home.

But the moment paused when the phone in the bedroom rang. Aisha went to pick it up and it was a man.

"Hello ma'am I'm calling from the police station. Is this Mr. Rajiv Mehra's number?"
"Yes it is!"

"I'm sorry ma'am; but there was an accident and a man died. We got this number from his wallet;
we need you to come and identify his body."

Aisha's heart sank.!!! She was shocked! "But my husband is here with me!"

"Sorry ma'am, but the incident took place at 2 pm, when he was boarding the train."
Aisha was about to lose her consciousness.

How could this happen?! She had heard about the soul of the person coming to meet a loved one before it leaves! She ran into the other room. He was not there. It was true! He had left her for good!!

Oh God she would have died for another chance to mend every little fight!
She rolled on the floor in pain. She lost her chance! Forever!

Suddenly there was a noise from the bathroom, the door opened and Rajiv came out and said "Darling, I forgot to tell you my wallet got stolen today".
