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

Some things don't change

'The elections have come and gone, but some things have not changed, namely:

* The arrogance of Umno

Just listen to Datuk Seri Musa Aman, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz and Datuk Seri Salleh Keruak justify the Sabah state government’s decision to block the entry of Nurul Izzah into the state and it becomes clear that Umno men still have disdain for the will of the people.

Nurul Izzah is an elected MP and senior member of the Opposition and yet she is treated like a criminal/terrorist/illegal immigrant. Why? Because arrogance and hubris is in the Umno man’s DNA.

Musa says that there is a need to preserve the peace and stability of Sabah. He forgot to mention: the need to keep in place a corrupted system where the rich and connected enrich themselves and flood the state with illegal immigrants.

These Umno politicians allowed hundreds of thousands of illegals to enter Sabah and compromise national security and they speak of having the interest of the state at heart.

* The baffling Tan Sri criteria

Just what exactly did MACC chief Datuk Seri Abu Kassim do over the past 12 months to deserve the Tan Sri award by the King.

Really, what is the criteria for the award?

It is understandable that Chief Secretary of government Datuk Seri Ali Hamsa and actress Datuk Seri Michelle Yeoh both were made Tan Sris.

After all, both went out of their way to campaign for BN in the run-up to the election! So the award was their just reward for loyalty to Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the government.

But what exactly did Abu Kassim do? Caught a bunch of small fish and little else.'
