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

Tony Pua on how Dr Mahathir redefines Racism

'When Malays vote overwhelmingly for UMNO in the past, it is never “racism”.
When a 100% Malay crowd hold weekly protests against the Pakatan Rakyat government in Penang, it is not “racism”.
When Chinese voted for MCA in the past, that can’t be racism.
When Chinese also voted strongly for PAS and PKR in the current elections, PAS and PKR are not accused of racism.

When Malays increased their support for the DAP candidates, Dr Mahathir accused DAP of spreading “propaganda” that influenced educated Malays.
However, when the Chinese also voted strongly for DAP, that is proof of DAP “racism”.
When many Chinese turns up at Pakatan Rakyat events, that is beyond shadow of a doubt, Chinese “racism”.

What type of senile perverted logic is that?'

A result of having been in power for far too long, talking down to yesmen... lost his sense of logic.

I always wonder about this whenever someone from Umno accuses others of being racists. What could be more racist than a race-based party bent on race supremacy? Yet we are accused of being racists whenever we react to their unfair policies.
