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 appear 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

When your FD (Sabah and Sarawak) is big enough to make or break you...

Excerpt from Sakmongkol AK47's article, 'Don't secede, just leave BN!':

"We do not have to wait for GE14 to oust PM Najib and BN. nor have we reached a stage where conscientious lawmakers forget about being partisan and agree on a vote of no confidence against the PM. BN presently has the numbers and has the support of an equally partisan speaker. Any motion of no confidence will be defeated."

"...If you look at point #7, it says there is no right of secession.

What do Sabahans and Sarawakians want? Since secession is not possible, the next best thing is to kick out the federal government which is the source of much of the East Malaysians’ discontent. Work with people who can make that possible.

What is to be done?

All we need do is persuade the 8 non-Muslim MPs in Sabah and the 11 non-Muslim MPs in Sarawak to leave BN. BN will be reduced by that number and will only have 114 left in parliament on their side.
Out of that 114, the 14 comes from PBB- Taib Mahmud’s party. Taib hasn’t forgotten Najib’s humiliation of him- Najib went to Sarawak and in front of thousands announced that Taib Mahmud is leaving. Either Najib must have been seized by a temporary bout of political insanity or he was plain excited- did he forget that PBB isn’t UMNO at all. Taib Mahmud certainly wasn’t an UMNO serf always forced to pay obeisance to the lord. Taib Mahmud is like the PM of Sarawak."
