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

Umno General Assembly - the time for Chinese bashing

We have to be reminded time and again as to who is the boss and they have to be reminded again and again of our rights too.

Attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail reminded Malaysians the need to abide by the “social contract” developed by the country’s forefathers.

Kim Quek's reply to that statement:

'Yes, the 1957 Constitution is the social contract that embodied the consensus reached among the three major races at the time of independence. However, Article 153 of the Constitution has been widely and persistently misinterpreted to mean “special privileges” for the Malays, whereas it only provides for “special position” of the Malays whereby the Agong is entitled to request for reservation of quotas in three fields, namely a) public service b) education and c) trading licence.

Our Constitution is an egalitarian constitution that provides for equality and full fundamental individual rights, and certainly contains no room for anyone to create the concept of two or more classes of citizenship, as Barisan Nasional has been trying to do in the past decades.

This subject was fully explained in my book “The March to Putrajaya” under article no. 54: “The Constitution and Malay Rights”, which can be accessed at: www.themarchtoputrajaya.com '

Malaysiakini:

'According to A Kadir Jasin, fear of the Chinese was among the key reasons behind the Malays returning to Umno’s fold in the last general election.
"Images of tens of thousands jubilant Chinese and Indian supporters of the opposition taking over towns in Johor during election rallies struck fear among the Malays and they rallied behind Umno," he said.
He added that the bumiputeras, in particular the pro-BN Malays, were afraid if the Chinese dominated the government in addition to the economy, they would lose their rights and privileges
However, the former New Straits Times Group editor-in-chief said if Pakatan Rakyat could convince the Malays that it would be fair to them, BN would be in deeper trouble.'

Communications and Multimedia Minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek has questioned Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari who had said that the BN was responsible for the plight of Penang's poor Malays.
Instead, he questioned why Zairil did not say that the state's Chinese are 'rich' due to BN's previous administration.

The simple truth is: Malays are poor because of BN, but Chinese are rich despite BN. - Kim Quek

In the debate on whether ministers send their children to national or private schools, the general consensus seems to be:

‘Gov’t leaders must show faith in it; opposition doesn’t have to.’

DAP MP for Raub, Mohd Ariff Sabri:

'I have long advocated that Chinese schools seem to prosper only because national schools declined in quality. During the time when I went to school, where English medium schools had better teachers, produced better results, provided education in the language medium that is a pillar of communication in the world- performed better than vernacular schools of any kind, Chinese schools did not prosper. Chinese parents would want their children to go to Chinese schools up to standard 6 and then go on into English medium schools.'

Punish the Chinese for:-

1. Working hard like no tomorrow

2. Be very thrifty and invest wisely so that there is an umbrella during the rainy days ahead,

3. Facilitating their children with the best education,

4. Their entrepreneuring efforts inspite of the bumps erected against them by the BN government.

5. For their choosing of political leaders which are fair, clean and just to represent them and lead the nation for a better tomorrow.
