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

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

Dato Mohd Ariff Sabri: Suing WSJ and being Walter Scott

'It appears that the party buying time and pretending it was doing something righteous is the firm of lawyers representing PM Najib. It sent a letter seeking clarification only.

Because it did not understand? Why didn’t it send a letter of demand immediately? Now that WSJ has not responded, don’t hesitate. Sue the pants off WSJ.

The PM’s lawyers say the PM now has 2 options? Will the lawyers now behave like mendicants with bowl in hand pleading with WSJ to please respond lah…

The PM does indeed have 2 options; voluntarily resign or be kicked out.

Why should WSJ want to respond to stupid questions asked by PM’s lawyers? If they cannot understand what WSJ published, why is that our problem?

Read the articles published again and try to understand. Read them slowly, underline, use a highlighter, have a dictionary nearby and try to understand. Translate into Malay if required.'

'To simple minded folks like us, it means WSJ wants to take PM on his dare. Make us proud. Do justice to your bogus Bugis lineage. Get the palefaces on their home ground. Appear before an American judge.

That means they want to be taken to court. So PM’s lawyers better get cracking. Make sure you send someone who can understand American English and who can communicate in English.'

'WSJ does not need to respond to the letter asking it to clarify what it meant by its publication. It’s not the business of WSJ to ensure anyone who reads its published material can or cannot understand what is written. It’s not in the business of educating the dumb and mutes.'

'I want readers to remember- the accusation that Sarawak Report used tampered documents is based on the opinion given by a private eye company. The company PGI was paid by Petrosaudi.

He is hired by Petrosaudi- so that is already an ember light flashing to warn readers that reliance on a mere assertion of another party paid by the party at the centre of the controversy, is an untenable position.

No one has been allowed near Xavier Justo. So how did PGI come to that conclusion?  Whatever confessions Justo made- he made to the Thai Police. The Thai police has not issued any statements regarding that.'

'Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive! The quote is Walter Scott’s.'
