Say no to Chin Peng the ‘former terrorist’, say yes to Communist China!

Posted by barbie on June 9, 2009

I applaud the decision by the Malaysian government to dismiss and not entertain any idea of allowing Chin Peng the ‘former terrorist’ to return to this country.

Government Will Not Allow Chin Peng To Return, Says Najib

PUTRAJAYA, May 27 (Bernama) — The Malaysian government will not allow former Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) leader Chin Peng to reside in the country.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the return of the former terrorist would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones during the CPM’s revolt from 1948 to 1981 (known as the Emergency).

(Source: Bernama)

The government is absolutely right, many victims suffered during the communist insurgency, Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us. No, I didn’t say that. Our very wise, informed and cultured Datuk Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais bin Yatim said that.

Several quarters and individuals, including Information, Communication and Culture Minister Dr Rais Yatim, have opposed the idea.

“Chin Peng and his commandos killed many people in the past and they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us,” Rais had said.

The communists abused this country and we had been shackled through killings and terrible actions committed by them,” he added.

(Source: 1Malaysia)

We should never allow Chin Peng to come back to Malaysia. Thanks to our sensitive Defence Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for putting it in context.

Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said his return would be an insult to the families of nearly 50,000 British colonial and government troops who died during the “Malayan Emergency”. (psst, the 50,000 figure is a crap is you ask me)

But I have some disturbing questions.

1. Isn’t Chin Peng was just a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party? His party, Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) was supported by its China main counterpart throughout their four decades in Malaysia. My question is, why punish the puppet, but not the master? Obviously we should punish China!

Let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!

2. If I am not mistaken, China is ruled by Communist Party of China (CPC). So, let me get this right, China is ruled by a bunch of communists and why the hell we are courting them now? What happened to ‘the communist abused this country’ and ‘they certainly do not deserve any consideration from us?

What is our beloved Prime Minister doing frolicking in China then? Is he not worry that his visit would lead to dissatisfaction among the people, especially those who fought the communists and families who lost their loved ones?

I repeat, let’s severe our all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with China to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the communists. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit

3. If I remember correctly, the British and Japanese  also killed a lot of people during their occupation of Malaya no? The British sure killed and injured a lot of people back then.  Remember the fights by Tok Janggut, Dato’ Bahaman, Mat Kilau, Maharaja Lela? I bet my last cent the British killed more people here during their occupation compared to the emergency period.

How about the war crimes and astrocities the Japanese commited against the people of Malaya during World War II? Wait, did the communists kill less people than them?

Let’s severe all our diplomatic and bilateral ties with Japan and British (now Great Britain) to show our sensitive considerations to the suffering families that went through killings and terrible actions committed by the Japanese. Let’s show them Malaysia is serious about its past history, goddammit!

Well, I do not agree and I don’t really care if Chin Peng was a freedom fighter, but that’s beside the point. Just how much longer we want to live in the shadows of the past? May 13th, Malaya Emergency etc. often quoted by our leaders to ‘remind’ us, about what? You should know better. Selective issues, don’t you think? Why it is only Chin Peng not allowed to come back to Malaysia? How about other CPM leaders?

Conclusion: Only in Malaysia, it would seem like history has to dictate how we we live tomorrow. Rather sad.

ps: I am sure Chin Peng was not a freedom fighter. He’s taking arms for fun, just like how I shoot people for fun at my Counter Strike game. Okay, Let 4 Dead lah, nobody play CS now. Okay, bad joke.

pss: What is this ‘my father’, ‘my father’ and ‘my father’ crap keep repeated by Najib? He has no backbone to stand on his own? To claim his own credit, other that relying on his father’s name?

1 Malaysia: Unity in Diversity; as opposed to Unity in Uniformity

Posted by Oscar the Grouch on April 19, 2009

Whilst Mahathir has his Bersih, Cekap dan Amanah concept, Pak Lah with his Work With Me, Not For Me; Najib has since conceptualised his 1 Malaysia model- a yet to be fully-explained slogan backing his governmental administration.

In his website – aptly called www.1malaysia.com.my – Najib indicates that there will be 8 Values of the 1 Malaysia. So far, he has unveiled 4 of the values: – Culture of Excellence, Perseverance, Humility and Acceptance. And thus far, he has riddled us with more convoluting and meandering explanations that are, quite frankly, unfathomable.

First of all – let us understand – the 1 Malaysia is a concept. It is simply a slogan. To put it even more plainly, it is a motto – a meaningless axiomatic dictum of words that carries no weight of law.

Secondly – and as many would want to believe – it is not about One Malaysian, where all Malaysians stands as one in equality. A concept of equality of such a nature would go against the spirit of the Federal Constitution – namely Article 153 – which safeguards the special position of the Malays and natives of Sabah and Sarawak. It would also go against the New Economic Policy.

Hence, if the 1 Malaysia is not about equality of races, then what is it about?

Professor Datuk Dr Shamsul Amri Baharuddin, from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Institute of Ethnic Studies, drew an uneasy distinction with the concept of “Malaysian Malaysia”, promulgated by the PAP of Singapore, and later the DAP.

The Malaysian Malaysia – he says – is an ideology that espouses all ethnic group having equal rights with none having special rights. The 1 Malaysia, Prof Shamsul explains – rhetorically in florid scholastic terms – as a national unity process not in the manner of “unity in uniformity” but “unity in diversity“. This in plain simple English means something out of nothing.

Najib himself, so far with his 4 Values, does not breach on the subject of equality. He talks firstly on a Culture of Excellence- it is basically the abstract issue of work and performance. In Part 2, he talks on Perseverance- in which he preaches some sort of self-help maxims on how life is never easy. In Part 3, he pleads on the trait of Humility.

It is finally, in Part 4 which he threads on issues of more substance: – Acceptance. It is here that Najib tries to surreptitiously and perhaps covertly take on the topic of equality, by pointing out the difference between “tolerance” and “acceptance”. On the former, he explains that “… when you say you tolerate, you don’t quite like it, but you accept it because you have no choice.” This is as opposed to “acceptance”, where he argues “… if you talk in terms of acceptance, it indicates a state of mind that you are embracing something positively.”

So Najib is asking us to accept not to tolerate all the farcical nonsense, but to embrace it with a smile?

It is really all too philosophical for me to swallow. What exactly are all these Values? These are all not politics. It is some sort of Swami Beyondananda mantras – “excellence”, “perseverance”, humility” and “acceptance”. Pick up any cheap self-help book from MPH and you can find the same crap. In fact, why not just get a free copy from the Buddhist temple.

I wait, with abated breath, on the next 4 Values.

“1Malaysia” – Malaysia Under 1…….

Posted by barbie on April 17, 2009

Rais Yatim, the expert somersaulter is making the headlines again. We can never get enough stale, puke inducing statements from Umno ministers, even from the so called the ‘educated’ bunch. This bugger has a Phd I tell you, and his doctorate paper was titled – “Freedom under Executive Power in Malaysia: A Study of Executive Supremacy” which he dedicated to “all who have suffered from the tyranny of executive excesses.”

It mind boggling (actually, not really.. lah! just being polite here) that a person with such background and credentials would turn into a poppycock offering ridiculous opinions like “losing Pedre Brance aka Pulau Batu Putih to Singapore is a win-win situation”. Well, we can’t expect much from an intellectual whore, right? Oopss.. by calling Rais an intellectual whore, am I breaking any law here? *chuckles*

(Bernama) – The government is not looking to find fault with bloggers and other internet users but would like them to follow the law to ensure they did not misuse it.

Oh sure man! As long as we write like any of your MSM dogs, everything will be peachy. How about telling them to follow the law as well? Cannot lah double standards, and why singled out ‘bloggers and internet users?’

Minister of Information, Communication and Culture Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said the ministry played an important role in establishing only the right kind of information reached the masses.


Rais Yatim….OOPS!!….I mean “Living Dinosaur”….. 😛

“It is not that we are looking for faults all the time. But we would like the right of the people to be guarded by the relevant authorities and the law. “Our aim is to see the 1Malaysia concept succeed.

However, in order to succeed, the facts must not be twisted or misinterpreted by some until it raises racial sentiments.

Twisted or misinterpreted, u say??? How about misquoted? You think people are dumb like you? My foot twisted and misinterpreted. I bet people misintepreted you when you said “Bok House is not a heritage building“, when you actually wanted to say it is??? What?? Come on lah, we are not so smart like you to decipher what are you trying to say, stop confusing stupid people like us.

“If the right information does not reach the people how can there be success?

Hey Mr. Living-Dinosaur-Minister, please elaborate what is the RIGHT information?

What is NOT raising racial sentiments!!???

THIS???

Jangan membuat permintaan yang bukan-bukan – Utusan Malaysia

Pemimpin politik dan badan bukan kerajaan (NGO) Melayu kelmarin menyeru orang Melayu bangkit bersatu bagi menghadapi tuntutan kaum lain yang semakin keterlaluan.

Kita menyeru kepada bukan Melayu supaya jangan lagi membangkitkan dan mencabar ketuanan Melayu yang berkaitan dengan agama Islam sebagai agama rasmi, kedaulatan raja-raja Melayu dan hak istimewa orang Melayu.

Dalam menjaga keharmonian dan kesejahteraan hidup masyarakat majmuk, elok rasanya kita jangan mengungkit dan membuat permintaan yang bukan-bukan.

Terimalah apa yang telah diberikan.

Mengapa masa kini perpaduan kaum dilihat kian longgar.

Jika kita kembali merenung lima tahun lalu, suasana perpaduan kaum kita dicemburui oleh negara-negara lain.

Tetapi kenapa sejak pilihan raya umum 2008, suasana tiba-tiba berubah.

Dengan pelantikan Perdana Menteri baru yang membawa bersamanya gagasan Satu Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Prestasi Diutamakan, inilah masa untuk semua kaum bersatu membina negara kita mengharungi cabaran yang mendatang.

Alangkah baiknya jika kita ketepikan sengketa dan perbalahan atas nama politik.

Semua kaum harus sedar bahawa tunjang kestabilan negara ini ada di tangan orang Melayu.

Jika orang Melayu sendiri sudah berpecah kepada kumpulan-kumpulan yang memihak kepada parti politik tertentu dan yang tidak peduli apa pun yang berlaku, kestabilan negara boleh goyah.

Kesan perpecahan itu dapat kita lihat dan rasai sekarang.

Di samping itu, kaum bukan Melayu tidak sepatutnya mengambil kesempatan. Akibat perpaduan kaum tidak dijaga dan dipertahankan, ia turut menjejaskan kegiatan ekonomi dan hubungan masyarakat.

Para pemimpin yang mewakili masyarakat berbilang kaum patut menghentikan salah menyalah antara satu sama lain.

Sesungguhnya kedudukan orang Melayu dalam negara ini harus dihormati sebagaimana mereka banyak bertolak ansur dengan bukan Melayu.

Ambillah iktibar kekecohan politik negara Thai. Banyak kerugian ditanggung oleh kerajaan. Malah majoriti rakyatnya tidak menyokong tindakan yang merosakkan imej negara mereka.

Kita hanya ingin memperingatkan bahawa tindak-tanduk perpecahan di kalangan masyarakat majmuk sedang menjadi tontonan negara lain. Mereka sedang mengintai peluang untuk campur tangan jika kita terus lalai dan tidak bersatu.

Oleh itu, semua pemimpin politik dan masyarakat perlu membuat memikirkan masa depan anak cucu kita.

Bersatulah pertahankan perpaduan kaum yang telah kita bina lebih 52 tahun lalu. Jangan diulangi kesilapan lampau hingga kita dijajah lebih 400 tahun lamanya.

Segala kemajuan yang kita kecapi hari ini adalah atas dasar kerjasama dan perkongsian kuasa melalui kerajaan Barisan Nasional. Relakah kita melihat segala impian yang dibina hancur berkecai akibat perpecahan antara kaum.

Dalam konteks ini, tanamkan semula semangat perpaduan dengan didahulukan oleh parti-parti politik.

Translation? I am not going to waste my time translating this shit.

Basically, this hired mouthpiece of UMNO, party of our Prime Minister, who incidentally coined up the “1Malaysia” slogan, is telling us this :-

*Princes of Earth -ledge your souls to UMNO, to ensure peace and prosperity, ehem… of course prosperity is subjected to certain individuals only.

*Others – SHADDUP!! and obey. Wag your tail. Eat shit or whatever. Just RESPECT the princes becuse we’ve tolerated you for far too long.

*Progress and stability of the nation – exclusively for BN, one and only.

And because we’ve yet to hear even a whimper from our glorious PM and his bunch of yo-yos on this piece of crap, it’s a silent endorsement of sorts, on their intepretation of what Najib’s “1Malaysia” is all about, isn’t it?

Now aren’t we just about the luckiest bunch on this side of Mother Earth to have a great “People First” cabinet working for our well-being? Ah, we are so blessed! One thing I must give it up to BN, it is good at sloganeering. Damn freaking good! Not going to post it here, save you from puking. What? When Samyvellu came up with the ‘Rejuvenation’ campaign for MIC with him at the lead, you can tell these slogans are pretty much, rubbish!

So folks, STOP DREAMING AND GO BACK TO WORK!!! THE GAHMEN NEEDS OUR MONEY!!!!!

We Are Who Our Government Is……..DAMN!!!!

Posted by ErnieJean on March 23, 2009

The other day at a local mall, walking past one of those indoor kiddies’ amusement centre, I chanced upon an argument  over who got to a games machine first and therefore should be the first to play on it……..Guess what? One was a kid, no bigger than 10 years old and the other was an ADULT!!!!!

Then there was this other incident where a little girl came into the ladies’ toilet looking like she’s going to wet her pants anytime soon, but did the adult, next in line to the next available cubicle allow the poor child to use the loo first? NOPE!!! Of course, being there first, the adult have every right to go use the loo first, but it would have been a decent thing to do if the poor child had been allowed to relieved herself first…..after all, children aren’t as seasoned as we adults are at holding our bladder mah?

And I realised, from the above incidents, right down to the way Malaysians drive and queue (hahahaha…yea right…), most of us have basically become disciples of “Me, Myself & I“. That nothing is more important than self-preservation. Why worry about the poor and bullied when one can benefit from the down-trodded??? Who cares about ethics and justice???

And it is these sort of “ugliness” that begot us the sort of leadership we have in power now.  H.L. Mencken once said of democracy, “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.”

And that’s why it’s absolutely “incredible” that someone found guilty of money politics, which by the way is just a rosier term for “CORRUPTION”, and barred from contesting for a post in his political party, is still deemed suitable enough to remain as the Menteri Besar of a state???

In fact our Prime Minister’s only reaction to this scandalous insult to all Malaccans was……..

“He is not sulking but is ready to continue his struggle for the party’s future.”

And how about a certain loud-mouth egg-headed minister (and let’s not forget his equally useless son too) who got a photo of himself at The Gutter Post in a very very compromising position with a young chick? If I’m not mistaken, he has yet to outright deny it, only refusing to further comment and is now as quiet as a chicken egg……and yes, he is still in charge of our nation’s legal affaird and judiciary reforms……..what a JOKE!!!

And then we have an ex-minister with a fondness for bad wigs (with so much money at his disposal, why on earth can’t he get a good wig is anybody’s guess!!!) who lost his underpants in the March election last year, but somehow managed to win his party’s presidential post for the 11th time, even though it was by default!!!??? This is despite him being involved in sooo many scandals namely, MAIKA, AIMST, MIED………and of course there’s always the useless offspring and the mysterious death of his sexy secretary to complete the picture……….

The biggest joke would probably be the ex-ex-MB of Selangor with 2 Ms, who thinks the entire nation is suffering from memory lost by promptly boasting about his achievements to prove that he indeed can speak English and was definitely lying thru his teeth during his “I no talk Inglish” incident in Australia………and he’s now touted to be in the lead (by default of course) for the race to the nation’s No.2 position………..

Is this the type of government Malaysian really want? Where “INTEGRITY” is more a liability and no longer one of the main criterias to determining a leader? Yes, some of the above “National-Embarrassments” were not voted in by us voters, but didn’t we voted for the politicial party that endorsed their sort of actions.

Of course, we’re not so naive as to believe that there will be a perfect political party without the usual black sheep or problems………but at least, from what I see so far, leaders in Pakatan Rakyat have proven to be, at the very least, more honourable than our current governing party when it comes to dealing with their folks embroiled in scandals…………they actually tender in their resignation…………….while our darling BN politicians either pretend nothing is wrong or lay low, keep quiet and pray for the problem to tide over.

So, Mr Abdullah Badawi, don’t blame the Pakatan Rakyat, or anyone else for that matter, for keeping UMNO “DISTRACTED“. If one doesn’t carry any shit, one wouldn’t be so busy “defending” oneself, right?

Najib’s ruthless plan to restore absolute power of UMNO?

Posted by Cherubim on February 21, 2009

I have been wondering why Barisan Nasional was behaving themselves. Maybe I was deluded into thinking, well, considering the grim global economic forecasts this year, they’re perhaps trying to save as many middle class in the country as possible. Think of something other than the rubbish economic stimulus packages that doesn’t seem to work long-term.  After all, people who pay taxes are those in the middle-lower class catagory, and the super rich usually gets aways without paying much. Except I forgot one thing, the reason BN’s political hold onto the country’s wavering is due to the fact that the middle class can afford internet access, is more or less well educated, and makes decisions on their own, rather than what is fed through the mass media. They don’t want that. No. So they decided to plan an ambush.

They were planning to topple the hold that the Pakatan Rakyat has in the 5 states one by one, using proven effective techniques.  The first technique we have seen is bribery, where there are those 4 from Perak who fell to the ploy. There is an alleged claim that the former DAP MP’s actually incurred numerous debts, and the woman chose her husband over her own other loyalties, or so the whispers in the wind say.  Second technique is the digging out dirt on the head or those who hold the parties together, as poor Elizabeth Wong has sufffered and Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim is finding out. The third is by psychological pressure, by giving death threats, putting the MPs in fear of harm to their families, which unfortunately knowing as how things are evolving in this country, might be carried out.

What all of us must understand is that the next Prime Minister of Malaysia (a dictator who would rival Mahathir’s iron grip, with less tact, less consideration for the economy, and a womanizer to boot)  is one ruthless sneaky fellow, and he’ll do anything to keep his imagined god-given right to rule and leech off the land. These people don’t care about us common folks who work 10 hour days and want only to be good at what their chosen profession does. No matter what, free access to the nation’s coffers would ensure that the powers that be in BN UMNO always be more than comfortable. They’re already wealthy, and the only way to keep things that way is to maintain hold on power in the country and be Deities (in their minds) above the law. No one is safe from being their pawns. Whatever it takes, it will be done.

Pakatan Rakyat as it is right now exists on a fragile balance. Everyone has ideals, everyone wants justice and equality, everyone has their own motives and reasons. Everyone is human. Make no mistake, Najib’s plan is to prey on PR MPs’ weaknesses, expose/threaten/pay them off then play dumb and innocent officially. PAS, for all their excessive enthusiasm for religion, does not lack of loyalty and solidarity amongst themselves, it is after all the Muslim way. Cannot the DAP and PKR do the same? We are facing a common enemy, it is now time to strategize and effective counter-attack. One has to be smart, and trust one another. They cannot break a bound bundle of sticks, but it’s easy to break them one by one untill all has fallen.

Pakatan Rakyat, worry, strategize, and prepare yourselves. This 4-year-term you have earned will be unchartered territory as far as Malaysian political scene is concerned. Everything is possible, even assasinations. Remember, the people have supported you, so kindly do you end of the bargain.

Tempe King, Khir Toyo is a botox-ed face hypocrite!

Posted by barbie on February 18, 2009

Tempe King, Khir Toyo is a botox-ed face hypocrite!

The REAL face before tempe and botox treatment

On Eli’s Wong nude photos:

KLANG: Selangor Opposition chief and former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo has called for Pakatan Rakyat state executive councillor Elizabeth Wong to resign on moral grounds.

He said Malaysians were not ready to accept leaders who were embroiled in scandals.

Given this, he said Wong must relinquish all her positions.

This is a moral issue and Malaysians cannot accept leaders with moral issues and so she must vacate her State Assembly seat.

And after Eli offered to resign, the morally constipated Khir Toyo said this:

Selangor opposition chief Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo commended her for offering to resign, saying it was the right thing to do.

Dr Mohd Khir said that it was an unfortunate turn of events but said he appreciated Wong’s move to immediately resign.

It is good that there is a trend in Malaysia now whereby embattled elected representatives readily resign from their posts,” he said.

But, Khir Toyo.. what you said when photos of your representatives clearly in a compromising position were leaked out?

Political Assassination of Eli Wong…..Too Bad It’s Not Working!!!

Posted by ErnieJean on February 16, 2009

You know what?

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!

ENOUGH with all these low-life tactics to politically assassinate one’s opponent. For once, can’t these people pppplllleeeeaaaasssseeee come up with something that has more substance than some cheap nauseating thrills!!??

Nude photos: Politician lodges police report

Malaysiakini – Feb 16, 09 9:45am

A top Selangor assemblywoman, whose nude photographs are being circulated in public, has made a report urging the police to investigate the matter.

According to the assemblywoman, she lodged the report late last night at Damansara police station in Petaling Jaya at about 11pm.

It is believed that the photographs were taken without her consent, most likely by a former boyfriend, while she was sleeping.

Malaysiakini has seen a couple of the photos, one of which shows her asleep naked in bed.

The politician, who is from the ruling Pakatan Rakyat coalition in Selangor, has been severely traumatised by the release of the photos.

She told Malaysiakini that it was a gross invasion of her privacy.

“I’m a little speechless and at loss of words,” she said, adding that she would leave to the police to find the culprit who circulated the photos.

The photos have been sent to a number of newspapers, including The Sun and Malay Mail, which today ran reports on the matter.

According to one of her supporters, the release of the photos is aimed at casting aspersions on her and Pakatan ahead of two crucial by-elections in April, in Kedah and Perak.

The assemblywoman, who is in her late 30s and single, is expected to release a statement later today.

From what I gathered, these are basically photos taken of Eli Wong sleeping in nude/almost nude, without her consent mind you……….I mean, COME ON!!! Im’ very sure there’s many of us out there, men included, who has slept in their “birthday-suits” before, so WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL!!!???

These photos are neither controversial nor are they sexy!! What they are, are basically a gross violation of one’s personal boundaries!!!! Nothing more and nothing less!!

To use private photos of another person in order to embarrass him/her is not only criminal but TRULY TRULY DESPICABLE!!!

And you know what……I somehow suspect that the source of this “despicability” has the stinky trademark scent of some mastermind from a particular racist and corrupted political party that promotes and approves of such of behaviour………and for anyone to not know which party I’m referring to, must have been a hermit in some limestone caves……….

No, I have not seen the photos, nor will I ever be interested in viewing them……because by doing so would only give whoever posted those photos the publicity he/she so crave.

As far as I’m concerned, Elizabeth Wong is one great assemblywoman and the work that she has done for the people (even way before she was elected) certainly outweighs all that Toyol and his goons have done in their entire political career!!!

Btw, I do wonder if it could also be because of her and the PR state government’s unwavering stand on many issues that has made them the darlings of the voters but hugely “unpopular” with the corrupted businessmen, who used to get their way with the previous  Toyol government by just donating large amounts to some mysterious “Football Club”……….the illegal billboards and dangerous hillside developments instantly springs to mind……..hhhmmmmm…..

Quite frankly, I certainly DONT’ GIVE A DAMN what she wears to sleep, do you?

And just like Teresa Kok and her ISA detention, this incident of betrayal will not only ensure that the political career of Eli Wong will definitely live on, but she will find herself deluged with public support…….

Ultimately the BIG LOSER will NOT be the victim, but the perpertrator!!!!

Reducing Unemployment : What UMNO Does With The “Un-Employables”….

Posted by ErnieJean on February 11, 2009

Remember sometime last year, when our dear ole 2nd Finance Minister, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed assured the nation that the country’s unemployment would not go beyond 4% in year 2009?

As we all know, most of Nor Mohamed’s sugar coated predictions are to be taken with a pinch of salt.

So, it’s hardly a surprise when MIER (Malaysian Institute of Economy Research) came up recently with , I think, a more realistic assessment of the unemployment rate of 4.5%. In fact an economist Datuk Dr. Zainal Aznan Tusof predicted that the figure could very well go up to 6%. That’s definitely an alarming thought, since during the good times, unemployment rates were kept well below 3%.

With so many people being retrenched, what do you think our UMNO-led government is going to do?

With so many of them boasting about being graduates from Oxford, Cambridge, Hardknocks and Whatnots, it’s only fair that our expectations are high, no?

How utterly dissapointing it is to see the “brilliant” minds of our leaders coming up with such re-employment scheme!!!!

Apologise or face daily demos, warns Umno Youth

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth wants DAP national chairman Karpal Singh to drop any lawsuit against the Sultan of Perak or it will demonstrate outside his office in Jalan Pudu every day. (Demonstrate everyday!!!!??? Lu orang tak payah kerja ar!!!!??? )

“We want any action to bring the Sultan to court to cease immediately because it can jeopardise public security and Karpal Singh must ask for forgiveness from the Sultan,” said Serdang Umno Youth chief Ungku Mat Salleh.

They also called for the arrest of PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin for not heeding the Sul­tan’s directive that the latter resign.

Some 50 Umno Youth members from Selangor and Federal Territory marched to Karpal Singh’s office yesterday. The demonstration stopped rush hour traffic around the busy Puduraya area.

Working hard for the money.....

Employing the "Un-Employables" : Working hard for the money.....

umno-protest-21

Employing the "Un-Employables" : We don't makan gaji buta, u know?

Demonstrate everyday!!!!???? These people don’t need to make a living meh? I must be mistaken because I assumed since times are bad, people should be working doubly hard to put food on their tables. Perhaps this sort of “occupation” pays handsomely……too bad I’m “over-qualified”  😛

But then again, this bunch of hooligans represent UMNO and we all know how UMNO takes care so absolutely lovingly of their “volunteers”, right? Be it the by-election, house-warming, ceramahs, visitation to some charity homes, there’s always the meal allowances, accomodation allowances, transportation allowances, exposure-to-hot-sun allowances, hooliganism allowances, and so on and so forth to look forward to, no?

And by the way, you UMNO goons really think we Malaysians forget soooo easily, don’t you?

If anyone needs to apologise to their Sultan for being rude and disrespectful, it should be the leaders of UMNO!! Remember this? Well, most of us still do…….so how?

22 Barisan Nasional (BN) state assemblymen led by the secretary of the State Umno Liaison Body, Datuk Rosol Wahid, who opposed the appointment of Ahmad as the Terengganu Menteri Besar in place of Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, arrived at Istana Tetamu about 7.50 am to hand over the letter of protest on the appointment.

Rosol, who was not allowed to enter the palace, later handed over the letter to the Secretary of the Terengganu Regency Advisory Council, Shafie Ali.

When met by reporters, Rosol said the letter, among other tings, stated that all the 22 BN elected representatives fully supported the reppointment of Idris as the Menteri Besar and rejected Ahmad’s appointment as the new MB.

“Our support for Datuk Seri Idris is unanimous. There is no other person qualified to hold the Menteri Besar’s post apart from him (Idris),” Rosol said.

He said Ahmad’s appointment was invalid and hoped that those involved would take a serious view on the matter as it involved the interest of the people in the state.

He said if Ahmad were to proceed with his intention to take the oath of office as Menteri Besar, the Kijal Assemblyman would be violating the party rules and action could be taken against him, including expulsion from the party.

“That’s why we sent the letter of protest because Umno and BN secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor had informed me last night that Ahmad would be contravening the Umno constitution should he take the oath of office,” he said.

Rosol said the protest letter had been sent to Ahmad and a copy to the Head of the MPPR.

Since the Terengganu BN won in the general election on March 8, winning 24 of the 32 State Assembly seats and seven of the eight parliamentary seats, the state government had functioned without a Menteri Besar.

On Saturday, Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said disciplinary action could be taken against Ahmad if he were to accept the post of Terengganu Menteri Besar as he would be going against the instruction of the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who wanted Idris to remain as the MB.

Abdullah, who is also BN chairman and Umno president, had issued a letter nominating Idris as the Terengganu Menteri Besar.

Meanwhile, several supporters of Idris were seen gathering at the official resi

dence of the Menteri Besar at Seri Iman, here, to give their support to the Jertih Assemblyman to be reappointed as the MB for a second term.

Dari Jelapang ke Jelutong: Suatu Kisah Penentangan

Posted by barbie on February 11, 2009

(This is the Bahasa Malaysia version for the previous post by Oscar – From Jelapang to Jelutong: A Tale of Defiance)

Nampak gayanya saya sudah semakin tua. Sudah banyak kali, saya mendapati diri saya terkapai-kapai, lemas dalam cubaan untuk merungkaikan kemelut politik Malaysia. Barangkali politik Malaysia itu sendiri yang semakin celaru untuk difahami, bukan kerana dangkalnya akal fikiran saya.

Kita ambil contoh, kes Karpal Singh. Beliau hendak menyaman Sultan Perak. Ramai yang tidak gembira dengan keputusan beliau ingin berbuat demikian. Banyak laporan polis telah dibuat di beberapa tempat, semuanya atas tuduhan bahawa Karpal Singh derhaka, kurang ajar, biadap; malah ada yang menyifatkan beliau sebagai pembelot kerana kerana menyanggah keputusan Sultan.

Bahagian ini yang saya tidak faham. Mengapa Karpal tidak boleh menyaman Sultan Perak? Itu adalah hak beliau untuk berbuat demikian. Sudah tentu, segelintir daripada kita mungkin berpendapat beliau tidak patut berbuat demikian, kerana adalah adat untuk seorang rakyat biasa menunjukkan taat setia dan patuh kepada raja yang berdaulat.

Tetapi pada zaman sekarang, dengan pembaharuan undang undang yang berdaya maju, hak seorang warganegara untuk membawa pemimpin ke mahkamah keadilan adalah suatu nilai kebebasan yang paling asas yang wujud di semua badan kehakiman di dunia. Sekiranya Karpal tidak mempunyai kes yang kukuh, saman beliau akan ditolak oleh mahkamah, yang mana beliau akan menanggung kos perbelanjaan mahkamah. Di dalam apa jua keadaan, badan kehakiman yang akan dipertanggunjawab untuk menegakkan keadilan.

Ini membawa saya kepada satu lagi kemusykilan. Mengapa ada segelintir rakyat yang marah kepada Karpal Singh kerana ingin menyaman Sultan? Saya rasa ini sesuatu yang amat lucu. Karpal Singh telah berkecimpung dalam bidang saman-menyaman Sultan, sejak sekian lama.

Pada tahun 1986, beliau menfailkan saman sivil ke atas Sultan Johor, Tunku Mahmood Iskandar yang pada masa itu merupakan Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Saman sivil itu difailkan bagi pihak Daeng Baha Ismail untuk meminta ganti rugi/pampasan serang (Daeng Baha Ismail telah dibawa ke Istana Johor dalam keadaan bergari oleh pegawai polis dan ditumbuk serta dipukul berkali-kali oleh Sultan di hadapan kerabat diraja yang lain). Karpal kalah dalam kes tersebut, dan desas desus menyatakan Sultan kemudianya menggunakan nama Karpal sebagai nama salah seekor anjing baginda. (“A Malaysian Who Dared Sue a King” Far Eastern Economic Review, 20 May, 1993).

Pada tahun 1995, Karpal menfailkan saman ke atas Yang di-Pertuan Agong pada pada itu, Tuanku Jaafar Rahman, Sultan Negeri Sembilan. Aduan dibuat bahawa Tuanku Jaafar telah menipu seorang ahli perniagaan dalam urusniaga tanah di Port Dickson. Karpal juga menyatakan hasrat untuk menfailkan pertuduhan pecah amanah dan telah membuat laporan polis ke atas Tuanku Jaafar. Tuanku Jaafar kemudiannya dilaporkan menyelesaikan kes tersebut di luar mahkamah dengan sejumlah besar bayaran.

Pada tahun 1996, Karpal mewakili Faridah Begun bte Abdullah untuk menyaman Sultan Pahang di Mahkamah Khas, akan tetapi kes tersebut tidak berjaya atas sebab-sebab teknikal.

Jadi, mengapa baru sekarang ramai orang berkecil hati dan tersinggung dengan perbuatan Karpal Singh? Saya merasakan bahawa perkara ini memang sengaja dipolitikkan.

Dan saya tidak sekali setuju dengan semua laporan polis yang telah dibuat atas tuduhan biadap dan menghina kedaulatan institusi raja-raja Melayu. Adalah jelas bahawa, rakyat Malaysia secara amnya mudah lupa.

Pada tahun 1983, kerajaan Barisan Nasional telah mengambil tindakan meminda Perlembagaan supaya kuasa Yang di-Pertuan Agong untuk menolak rang undang-undang yang dilulus oleh Parlimen dibatalkan, oleh sekaligus menjadikan baginda sebagai ‘rubber stamp’.

Pada tahun 1993, sekali lagi kerajaan Barisan Nasional melupuskan immuniti raja-raja dan Yang di-Pertuan Agong dengan pindaan ke atas Rang Undang-Undang Akta Perlembagaan (Pindaan) 1993 dan ini membolehkan baginda dan raja-raja lain disaman atas perbuatan mereka.

Dengan izin, bukankah pindaan-pindaan rang undang-undang perlembagaan ini memberi kesan serta akibat yang lebih dahsyat dan teruk kepada Sultan-Sultan khususnya institusi raja-raja itu berbanding apa yang dilakukan oleh Karpal sekarang? Tiada siapa yang mengadu atau membabi-buta membuat laporan polis ketika itu, sedangkan kuasa institusi beraja telah dilucutkan dan dipijak sewenang-wenangnya oleh BN dan UMNO pada masa itu. Tiada siapa yang berani mengadakan tunjuk perasaan, siap dengan kain rentang, sepanduk; juga kain ikat berwarna kuning.

Sekarang, seorang rakyat hendak menyaman Sultan dan tiba-tiba ia menimbulkan kekecohan. Pemuda Umno, yang sememangnya lebih gaya dari rupa, seperti dijangkakan telah menawarkan khidmat untuk mempertahankan kedaulatan institusi raja-raja Melayu; institusi yang telah diperkosa oleh parti ibundanya – UMNO beberapa dekad yang lalu.

Khabarkan pada saya sekali lagi, mengapa saya tidak memahami politik Malaysia.
