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

Oh No! Not Him!

'It is confirmed. Umno lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah (pic) wants to become the next attorney general, saying being of service to the public was far more important than making money.

"I would take any position to do public service. And if that public service is something I am qualified for, if the government really requires me, I will take it," he said at his posh Bukit Tunku office in Kuala Lumpur yesterday...'

Yes, I am prejudiced, but as a member of public, I am entitled to my personal opinion. But an Attorney General cannot be prejudiced, certainly not when he is publicly perceived to be prejudiced. He is an Umno lawyer, a very high profile one, with many successes to his name. But what irked me most was when he publicly said that he needed just two hours to nail Anwar. He has been appointed by present AG for this specific purpose. Can we trust him to be fair to all and sundry?

By the way, it is a small world indeed. The first time I heard his name was when he was going out with an ex-classmate's sister, both of them young lawyers. Unfortunately, near Campbell Complex in Jalan Dang Wangi, she got off his car to cross the busy road and was killed by a minibus.
