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

He is no superman... biting off more than he can chew?


He is our Prime Minister and Finance Minister, and our FLOM's husband.

To think that his cousin is Defence Minister and Acting Transport Minister, it would appear either there are not enough capable or suitable candidates for such important positions, or simply they are being greedy in wanting more portfolios.

MCA leaders should thank their lucky stars that one of them who was supposed to be Transport Minister was not, at the time of disappearance of MH370. Hishammuddin had the advantage of overseas education and experience in various portfolios to be able handle the daily press conferences at the early stage. Though there were brickbats, there were also compliments about his excellent command of English in the face of questions from foreign journalists. But we should not confuse suaveness and flair with competency. He had the added advantage of being Defence Minister who can speak with authority when dealing with the Search and Rescue operations. I cannot imagine how an MCA Transport Minister would deal with the problem under the circumstances, especially without actual authority in many things.
