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

Guan Eng's new Mercedes: only the timing sucks

"The point to be noted here is Lim was not desperate to have the Mercedes-Benz.

He could have rushed to get the latest Mercedes Benz as his official car five years ago if he had wanted to. But he didn’t, so why the fuss now?

After all, all heads of state in this country are driven in such a car, so why must Lim be an exemption?

There is nothing much to fuss over except that the timing of delivery of the car. Yes, the damning delay.

It came two months after the arrival of the fleet of 15 Camrys for the entire executive councillors. It wouldn’t have raised an eyelid had it not been the delay.

Perhaps Lim should have been more sensitive to the repercussions of being seen driven in the new car at a time when the rakyat are faced with the rising cost of living."

Let Guan Eng have his Mercedes
