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

Government fed by the people

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Nazri epitomizes BN (Buli Nasional)

Watched news on television last night and Nazri was interviewed after his official opening of Museum Cafe. When asked about the dispute over SRKC Chin Woo, his reply was typical of his confrontational 'streetfighter' stance, unbecoming of a veteran minister and very politically incorrect, to put it lightly. That he was re-elected as MP and re-appointed minister again and again, shows Umno's liking for leaders like him.

My natural reaction was to let him have what he wanted, like a spoiled brat.

I am surprised the school board did not take up this offer earlier:

"The Cabinet had earlier decided to allow Chin Woo to continue to use the land for another 20 years by leasing it, on four conditions:
1. Acknowledge that the land belongs to the ministry;
2. No permanent structure to be erected at the occupied land, i.e. the status quo be maintained;
3. Agree to a 20-year lease at RM1,000 a year; and
4. To show proof that the school’s pupil population does not decrease from the 15th year of the lease onwards.

On Nov 20, the ministry gave the school one month to accept the offer or face eviction."

More on Nazri's past statements relating to it...
