No….Seriously….Bright Future????

Posted by pervster on September 18, 2008

This could possibly be my shortest post ever…….

Was watching the news earlier on…and this joker by the name of Datuk Hassan Malek claims he was offered cash by Pakatan to cross over. Now, i can’t seem to find the English version of the article online, but here’s the MalaysiaKini Malay version report:

“Laporan ini dibuat tanpa arahan dari sesiapa, saya sendiri yang ambil inisiatif untuk lapor pada BPR,” katanya kepada Bernama hari ini.

Hasan enggan menyatakan jumlah sebenar yang ditawarkan kepada beliau kerana tidak mahu siasatan tergganggu.

“Yang jelas dia janjikan saya masa depan saya yang cukup cerah. Itu masing-masing boleh intepretasikan,” katanya.

Well, he pretty much claims he got some money, but he refuses to disclose the amount, and…he was promised a “very bright future”

Now….have a look at his face:

Hasan Malek

No….Seriously….not that i want to make fun of the way this guy looks and all….but…….

Does this guy look like he has a bright future????? :P…

x

If this is the face of the future…we’re all doomed!!!

The September 16 double bluff

Posted by jingoisticbuthornydesperado on September 18, 2008

Ok, ok, I opine that September 16 was not meant for Malaysians to take the bait, but for UMNO. September 16 was a double bluff specifically designed for UMNO to take the bait. Why the heck would Anwar want to expose his battle plan for UMNO, so that UMNO has time to defend itself? Why the hell does one play chess and then tell his opponent what his next move is going to be?

September 16 was an empty threat. UMNO took the bait (or is it Najib and his cohort, Hamid Albar, as my fellow dandelions first concurred?). UMNO began to put RPK, Teresa and Tan into ISA in the hopes of maybe instigating all-out protest to have a reason to declare martial law. It will then be bye, bye opposition. But that didn’t materialise. Instead, the past few days have successfully swung the political wind to PR’s favour.

People were appalled by the actions of UMNO. Legitimacy of cross-over becomes less of a question even amongst PR supporters who frowned on cross-over. I don’t like cross-over but after the events of the past few days, hell yeah, I am for cross-over. Anwar doesn’t have to be malicious to get his goals. Anwar force UMNO into showing its inner-most demons (we have already seen the outer-demons). Many people say, inner true colours are only shown when one is tremendously stressed, an act of great goodness or great controversy……

September 16 or the recent events surrounding September 16 serve to unify PR supporters, split into for cross-over and against cross-over to a unanimous for cross-over movement. If DSAI succeeds, heck it will be a legitimate, democratically popular cross-over, the first in Malaysian history.

Heck, the September 16 event only further destroys what’s left of UMNO’s unity. (As my fellow dandelions have concurred way before me) If Najib and Hamid are behind the ISA not Abdullah, well it is a sign that Najib the backstabber is beginning to be less subtle and more desperate. Abdullah can’t tell the press that he didn’t use ISA but his minions did, as this will have disastrous consequences to the little leadership credibility that AAB has managed to retain. Najib is not going to be left unpunished, AAB “rewarded” Najib with the post of Finance Minister 4,5 months before UMNO elections (again my fellow dandelions have concurred before me). With the recent chain of events striking US financial giants, first and foremost, Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers, Merill Lynch and AIG, we have not heard the last of economic kerfuffle. Malaysia is not going to escape unscathed, and there is little Najib can do to conjure a financial miracle that will help save the US financial system in return, help Malaysia. Economy is going to be worse off, and Najib will bear the brunt.

September 16 was an ‘empty’ threat. UMNO made September 16 into an enemy UMNO itself feared most. If UMNO had not done anything, UMNO would not be in such a conundrum it is in today.

RPK took a gamble to be a willing pawn to the event leading to September 16. RPK has given UMNO a lot of ‘reasons ‘to apprehend RPK under ISA. RPK is now seen as a martyr for Malaysians who want justice, swing it to PR’s favour. Whether his martyrdom is to be converted to success in toppling UMNO remains to be seen.

I don’t know who has better chess playing strategy, but the set-pieces are already moving. Whatever result it may be, it will be preposterous to say that one got lucky winning. Politics is a high-stakes game to be left to lady luck. Has anyone ever won a chess game by luck?

Abdullah. Bodoh sepat? The villain? The unsung hero? Nyanyuk?

Posted by barbie on September 17, 2008

Quoting RPK from his infamous article that is said to be the reason he is arrested under ISA:

Malays say that there are two types of bodoh. One is bodoh sepat — you pretend to be stupid but are actually very devious. Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi would probably fit this bill. He pretends to be bodoh but is actually very crafty. The second is bodoh sombong — you are actually very stupid but are too stupid to realise that you are stupid and think you are very clever.

Judging from the latest scenario today, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is bodoh sepat. ‘Sepat’ is a fresh water fish famous for its refusal to be baited in the saying: “bodoh-bodoh sepat, tak makan pancing emas” which means even a dumb person knows how to choose what is best for himself. So a person who appears to be as “dumb” as a sepat, pretends to be stupid.

Why the portfolio swapping? Why the timing? Another coincidence? Screw coincidence. Nothing that is happening in Malaysia before, present and after this is ‘coincidence’ despite what our leaders want us to think. Things in Malaysia happen because of only 2 reason – God’s will and politically motivated. (You can ignore the 1st reason, just like me unless you are Palin’s fan)

Why Abdullah wants the Defence Ministry portfolio? Is him preparing for something bigger? You know what I I am thinking, stop being bodoh sepat.

Why Abdullah is bodoh sepat? 2 scenarios.

Abdullah as the bad guy, the villain.

1. In this kind of economic situation, giving the Finance Ministry portfolio to Najib is definitely a smart move. Najib is left to battle the ailing economy, a tall order. Good luck Najib.

2. He successfully nullified the dissent voices in UMNO by reaffirming the 2010 power transition plan.

3. Najib may not survive his political career until 2010 with all the allegations and now add to that now, an unenviable assignment. He knows jack shit about finance, just looking at the all the purchases he did while he was defence minister, ‘consultancy fees’ paid to Razak Baginda’s company in the amount of RM500mil (a world record for such consultancy service) you know how good Najib with money.

4. If rumours of Najib cahooting with Syed Hamid is true, with the backing of the army to do… well things is true, then now Abdullah already took care of that. Najib is paralysed.

5. Abdullah hinted to use ISA against Anwar, well if Anwar doesn’t has the number then why the need to ISA him?

Putting this all in pieces, now Abdullah is taking control of the Defense Ministry, which can be used to take control of defence for emergency rule and crowd dispersal control he is definitely stocking himself with enough ammo to battle it out, nasty and dirty.

Abdullah is the good guy, the unsung hero. The Oracle?

Then we must assume he is trying to help Anwar.

1. He set Anwar free and his son in law arranged passport for Anwar to go to Europe for medical treatment.

2. He is a man of conscience, being an ulama son and god fearing person. He never sumpah like Najib, Saiful or Ezam.

3. He needs to be in control in order to dismantle the rotten corrupted UMNO, sissified MCA, Gerakan, clueless and hopeless MIC and other idiotic BN component parties. So he stays in power, flip flop flip flop and play bodoh sepat until Anwar has the time to make his move. He is delaying and buying time for Anwar.

4. Anwar asked for peaceful transition of power. Who is going to lose everything? Person with the most dirts and extra baggage, non other but Najib. The person that will never agree to a peaceful power transition is Najib. So in order to have a peaceful power transition,  Abdullah need to take away the defence job from Najib so he will not repeat what his dad did back then. Now Najib is powerless. Hurray!!

5. Then peaceful transition can be done. Abdullah will step down gracefully and be remembered in history and the most kind leader, sacrificing himself for the good of Malaysia.

6. Anwar leads the country and Malaysians live happily ever after.

Well, probably above scenarios are nothing but craps, I am reading too much into this shit and Abdullah is nothing but a nyanyuk (dementia) old man clutching at straws, doing senseless things before he is gone for good.

ps: Thanks to Malaysia Today commentators for inspiring me to come up with this shitty post.

pss: Najib is kinda dungu to agree to the portfolio swap then. Maybe the prospect of earning quick buck from the Finance Ministry clouded his judgement? Maybe bad advice from a certain plastic reinforced lady? We never know…

Updated 5.10pm:

SAPP pulls out from Barisan. The timing cannot be better??? Just after the portfolio swap, this took place?? Pak Lah, you are really our unsung hero, eh?

How to kill two birds with one stone?: Anwar to be detained under ISA?

Posted by ella-mae on September 17, 2008

Anil Netto at 14:34 said:

1434: It is a serious weakening of Abdullah’s own position in the Cabinet in relation to Najib The PM, who was finance minister until now, will now focus on “religion, social issues and reforms”, reports the NST. He says he will not stay on after 2010, but “may go earlier”. Najib has strengthened his hand considerably in government. Perhaps the hope is that this Cabinet swap will pre-empt the Mahathir-inspired faction, Razaleigh and Muhyiddin from gaining momentum. In a sense, it may be seen as history repeating itself. Abdullah’s current position reminds me of the tail-end of Tunku’s tenure in 1969-70 when Najib’s father Abdul Razak for all intents and purposes held real power even though the Tunku only stepped down later.

And then we find out Pak Lah takes over (tada!) the Defence Ministry.

Malaysiakini:Najib takes over as finance minister
Beh Lih Yi | Sep 17, 08 2:16pm

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today said he would pass his finance portfolio to his deputy Najib Abdul Razak, while he takes over as defence minister.

Abdullah told a press conference this afternoon that the swap in the cabinet posts will take effect immediately.

The prime minister, who has held the post of finance minister since 2004, said he had informed the cabinet of the decision.

Abdullah also said that he may step down earlier than 2010 depending on Najib’s performance.

However, both leaders nevertheless reaffirmed their commitment to the 2010 power transition plan.

Abdullah added that both he and Najib will defend their respective posts as Umno’s top two leaders in the party polls in December.

Najib, who was present at the hastily-called press conference, said when asked to comment: “We have agreed. I’m leaving it to the party. We are offering ourselves to the party and I hope that they will accept.”

There has been increasing pressure on Abdullah to quit earlier than scheduled, but it now appears that Najib has stitched a deal with his boss to placate the demands of the Umno grassroots.

Both men have been at the centre of a political maelstorm, caught by bitter infighting in Umno amid a mounting challenge from Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, who has promised to form a new government soon.

Imagine this scenario…

Bird 1= Anwar

Bird 2 = Najib

Stone = Defence Ministry

So clever la you, Pak Lah. Diam diam ubi berisi…

Apa pendapat anda? (And oh! Everyone’s favourite minister (NOT) Nazri might be made the de facto Law Minister to replace Zaid Ibrahim’s former cabinet position.)

Updates from MalaysiaKini

Another round of ISA for Anwar?
Sep 17, 08 3:40pm

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has left observers wondering if Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim could once again be detained under the Internal Security Act.

During a press conference at Putrajaya this afternoon to announce a reshuffle of cabinet portfolios, the premier made remarks that appear to indicate the possibility of an ISA arrest for the maverick politician.

Among others, Abdullah described the opposition leader as a “threat to the country’s economy as well as a possible threat to (national) security.”

This in itself provides sufficient grounds for the authorities to invoke the security law which provides detention without trial against Anwar.

And when asked what action the government would take against him, Abdullah refused to reveal his cards, saying: “I will not indicate what plan I will take, what I do will be in the best interests of the people and the country.”

Employing the ISA against Anwar would undoubtedly have severe repercussions but such a move would not come as a surprise since the opposition leader had been constantly flirting with this possibility.

Takeover bid

Since the March 8 general election, Anwar had been a major thorn on the side of Barisan Nasional by threatening to launch a political coup.

The two-time ISA veteran claimed that he has enough ruling MPs willing to cross over into the opposition alliance Pakatan Rakyat in order for him to form government with a simple majority.

Anwar had failed to initiate the coup yesterday (Sept 16) – the date which he had set – but reiterated that he had the numbers and the toppling of the BN-led government was imminent.

The 61-year-old politician had also requested to meet Abdullah to discuss a transition of power plan and urged the premier not to resort to drastic measures, like declaring an emergency, to thwart the takeover.

Abdullah, however, rejected the meeting again today and dismissed the takeover claims as lies.

“There is nothing to discuss,” he said.

Anwar, who is currently facing a court battle over a sodomy charge, was first arrested under the ISA in 1974 in connection with a student protest. The former student leader was incarcerated for 20 months.

More than two decades later, he was once again briefly arrested under the ISA after spearheading a series of protests against his sacking as deputy premier in 1998.

The Battle Has Begun!!!! And Hopefully, It’s Not The Riots This Time!!

Posted by ErnieJean on September 17, 2008

So, another UMNO fler has decided to jump on the bandwagon…perhaps he should have consulted his fellow racist bigot, the Toyol man himself about the effectiveness of gaining popularity through blogging propaganda crap (whether self or otherwise)…….after all Toyol’s blog has been receiving such “overwhelming” response that I can’t seem to locate the total number of hits todate on his blog…did he take it out?

(Bernama, 17 Sept 2008) Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has launched his personal website www.1Malaysia.com.my today.

In statement issued by the deputy prime minister’s office, the website is intended to be a forum for all Malaysians to exchange views on important issues, promote common goals and highlight the nation’s unique diversity. (Who is he trying to kid!!!??? ROTFL!!!!)

Najib in the statement said he was concerned that certain quarters were seeking to drive wedges between Malaysia’s communities for political and personal gain and http://www.1Malaysia.com.my was intended as a portal through which the public could directly engage in open and honest dialogue with him. (Which “certain quarters” would you be referring to? Trying to play “memory loss” here Mr. DPM? Open and honest dialogue? Don’t think you can take it………)

“I do not believe in the politics of “deceive, divide and rule”. Returning to our long held belief in unity and mutual respect is more important now than ever,- he said. (Sure you don’t believe in that sort of politicis? How about your own keris-dipping-in-blood waving incident years ago and your countless endorsements of the racist statements by members of your very own party?)

He said the website was for all Malaysians and he encouraged those who rely on the Internet for information, communication and community to join this discussion. (When the name, email add, phone no, postcode, etc is required in the comment box, and the knowledge of your goons monitoring our IP addresses, just how many honest opinions would you be expecting? Especially after the way you guys merrily detain any civilian under ISA based on your whims and fancies?)

“As I work to update my skills, I will need your input and response to let me know how I am doing. The insight of the online community increasingly reflects what is important to Malaysians and I am eager to gain that perspective. (Didn’t you people write off the relevance of the blogging community just recently? Speaking with a forked tongue again?)

“I hope this website will initiate an open and vital dialogue, exploring our Malaysian identity, purpose and direction. As a father of two teenagers, I am both familiar with and resigned to heated debate and disagreement. (Hhhmmm…makes one wonder if our future PM can’t even win a debate with his teenage girls, and I don’t think it’s about national or worldy issues ya, how is he expected to command the respect of the nation?)”

Let’s proceed as the extended family we are. Let’s practise courtesy in our discourse and make understanding the primary goal of our interaction,” he said. (Still can’t believe he actually thinks anyone will be falling for this “We are A Happy Family” crap!!”

Najib also encouraged people to join him in defining Malaysia and the role Malaysians must play in its future. (Najib’s definition? We work like donkeys while they go golfing in Taiwan)”

Each of us, despite our differences, shares a desire for a better tomorrow.’ Each of us wants opportunity, respect, friendship, and understanding.’ Each one of us, in our unique way, is Malaysian. -Together, we are One Malaysia. I hope we will keep this conversation going,” said Najib. (Coming from someone who absolutely has no credibility or integrity left, this rings utterly HOLLOW!!!)

Isn’t it just infuriating that some people have such thick skulls that they have yet to accept the reasons behind the rakyat’s rejection of their leadership…they still think it’s the faults of the bloggers and the only way to stay in power is to “counter these cyber liars”. It has yet to dawn upon them that their policies laced with corruption, oppression, croynism, racism, etc are the reasons for them being hit with one “tsunami” after another….sigh……..

I have always wondered what the BN government will be doing to cling on to power and fight this takeover by Pakatan Rakyat and DSAI. To be honest, I know many of us were and are still worried about the possibility of chaos and riots being created, but I’d like to believe today’s Malaysians are no longer as naive as they were in yesteryears, where riots were easily sparked. If you’ve seen photos of the gathering in Kelana Jaya Stadium two days ago, you’d know what I mean, that majority of Malaysians no longer view each other with contempt and suspicion, what more to raise daggers at each other……which is, by the way, exclusively reserved for UMNO politicians.

Then, it dawned on me, that UMNO is most probably using the entire might of their MSMs to confuse the steadfast supporters of Anwar, and the blogosphere to turn the tablesI!!!! Smart but not smart enough my friends!!

So what made me come up with a conclusion like that? Check out what’s been going on since Anwar’s 2pm “916” press conference……..

Counter Attack 1

Last nite, right after DSAI’s press conference, I received an sms, which I believe a lot of Malaysians have received too, about DSAI being a con-man and that this cross-over scheme is all one big con job and the joke’s on us….all because Lim Guan Eng was quoted by Malaysiakini as saying that the 916 strategy was that of a “psychological war”. Hello, of course lah it’s psychologicall! We all know the strategy involved making them piss in their pants!! Don’t twist this into something that meant playing a joke on the rakyat.

Counter Attack 2

RTM had a late night program yesterday about DSAI’s press conference where they called on viewers to sms their thoughts and opinions. Needless to say, all the smses were critical of DSAI and very pro-BN…..well…duh!!! It’s RTM people!!!

Counter Attack 3

DPM launching his “We Care. We One Big Happy Family” website. Have checked it out, by the way, out of curiousity, as our DPM is not exactly known to be a writer or witty for that matter. At the moment, there’s nothing there except for a very rosy and glossy introduction to who the “great” man is. *Gag*

I’m sure there’ll be more coming out at us the next following days and like RPK, I pray that Anwar moves fast, as this country really needs to get back on track. We’ve been cursed with a non-performing government since Badawi took over and as confirmed by the man of the hour, Zaid Ibrahim, the PM has basically lost the control and respect of his ministers and party members….which basically explains why this ship is sinking.

I am writing this resume to prepare myself for the worse. I may be jobless after that traitor Anwar Ibrahim make good of his promise to take over the government this coming Sept 16th. I may need to quit my Deputy Chief of UMNO Youth and my powerful father in law no longer can provide for me. Damn Anwar Ibrahim!!

I should not make that stupid statement at the Permatang Pauh ceramah that day. What I was thinking saying we are here to bury Anwar’s political career and challenging Anwar Ibrahim to  resign as PKR adviser if he failed to become prime minister by Sept 16. I should just stop and that and not saying I would quit as Umno Youth deputy chief. Damn my smelly mouth!!

I am jobless after selling my shares in ECM Libra Avenue Bhd in 2006. Hey! I sold it at 65 sen per share, 6 sen cheaper from the price I bought at 71 sen, so I actually loss a lot of money! I only made less than RM 7 million after selling all my shares. What rich? I borrowed the money to fund my RM9.2 million shares, sold it for RM7 million  so I actually lost RM2 million okay! Damn that old man Lim Kit Siang, simply say I am the richest unemployed man!!

Luckily my father in law is a good and generous to me and thank God I am the Deputy Chief for UMNO Youth, I still can ‘cari makan’ as the Malays say. For quite some time I am depending on my father in law to pay off my cars, traffic summonses and my 2 iPhones. I am quite embarrassed to depend on him, but what I can do?  You see I have three cars with number plats KJ10Q, WNA13 and WMT8001. The car number plates itself also cost more than the car, you know! Damn the cars!!

I bought 2 iPhones and signed up for the AT&T’s 2 years contract, which is available for USD$60, $80 and $100 per month. I am the Prime Minister son in law, you cannot expect me to buy unlocked iPhone at Lowyat Plaza right? You do the math, cheapest plan still cost me USD1440 per year and I have 2 iPhones. I need to pay for the exorbitant roaming charges some more. Sigh!I shouldn’t buy those phones when I was away vacationing at the States for weeks. Damn the iPhone! Damn Steve Ballmer!! Damn Steve Jobs!!

I need to raise my family. I really need to prepare for the worst.  have listed some of the cool jobs I think I can do best judging from my past experience.  Help me make my decision.

1. Tukang karut in a dikir barat group – I can gather some of the my good friends: Nazri, Badruddin, Najib, Ali Rustam, Samyvellu, Ezam Mohd Nor, Bung Moktar, Pandikar Amin and form a dikir barat group! I am so good at ‘mengarut’, being a tukang karut should not be problem.

2. Lead singer in boria – I have a thing with boria. I join UMNO because I love the boria atmosphere.

3. Start a boy band with Jason Lo, my best friend! – We did MyTeam together, why don’t we start a new boy band to rival Too Phat?

4. A tele marketeer – I have no idea why I think of this job. Wait I heard tele marketeer need to bullshit a lot, I think I can handle that. I cannot make much money from it though. Skip this.

5. Go to Texas and become bull auctioneer – I have a loud voice. I love animals. I can connect with them.  Wait, George Bush is from Texas. I hate the bugger. Skip this.

6. Replace AC Mizal as host in AF – I hosted a talk show before. I think I am way more good looking than AC Mizal. I can make good jokes too.

7. AF contestant (since AF taking contestants up to 45 yrs of age) – I love AF. Damn Mawi! He is so famous now. Ali Cafe, Mamee, Poweroot, Hotlink ads all got his face. I also want to be famous. Wait, I am already famous! HAHAHA! Skip this.

8. Gigolo. – Those lecherous white/Japanese girls love beach boys. I am so tanned and good looking. I can speak with accent which they love. But KJ the Gigolo does not sound quite appealing. Skip this.

9. Start one more boutique selling bra and panties – I already have one at Pavilion KL. Well it’s belong to my wife, so it’s belong to me as well. Then again, it is a bit sissy for me selling bras and panties. Skip this.

10. Join Raja Lawak competition – I had told many funny jokes and people love it! I see many stupid bloggers quoting my jokes without paying royalties to me, damn!!

After much consideration, I reflected on my past achievements in politics, hosting political shows, handling public relations events and all that I have done in the past, I think I have failed miserably. UMNO is now at all time low on the pop charts. I do not want to go down the same path again.

I do not know much words apart from “lawan tetap lawan, kuburkan, liwat, pengkhianat bangsa” so I doubt I can be a good political orator. I made so many enemies, there is no one left for me to interview anyway. If they are seen to be too friendly with me, I may cause their shares to drop for the public may hate them.

I cannot sing that well either, so I do not want to do all those tukang karut, boria, AF, boy band stuff.

I think I should try my luck on the Raja Lawak competition. What do you think?

ps: Love this post? FAVE IT!

Khairy: “We are here to bury Anwar’s political career”

Posted by barbie on August 27, 2008

Remember this?

Khairy: We’ve come to ‘bury’ Anwar
Beh Lih Yi | August 21, 2008

Barisan Nasional will not only defeat Anwar Ibrahim in the Aug 26 Permatang Pauh by-election, the ruling coalition will also bury his political career.

This bold prognosis came from Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin.

Speaking at a ceramah in Seberang Jaya last night, he riled up the audience by characterising the upcoming contest as one that would decide the fate of the nation.

During a fiery 30-minute speech, Khairy said BN candidate Arif Shah Omar Shah’s true challenge was to end the career of the ‘power crazy’ opposition leader.

We are here to bury Anwar’s political career. We are here to make history to ensure our nation’s future is free and safe from him!” he thundered to loud cheers from those present.

(Source: Malaysiakini)

Hahahaha!!! Hahaha!!! Ha! Ha! Ha!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!

WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

NYAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

*cough! cough!*

ROTFLSMDL!!! ROTFLMAO!! ROTFLMAOWLKITA!!

Sorry… can’t help it..

This comment from a reader of Malaysiakini reflects my opinion of Khairy:

“Maybe Khairy wants to look at his salvation act and see how he has ‘buried’ his own father-in-law’s political career with the ‘demise’ of the five states in the hands of Pakatan Rakyat, not to mention his own ‘burial’ with a limbo rock on his position as deputy head of Umno Youth.

Good, Khairy. Do more salvation work – ‘bury’ your own career.”

*ROTFLSMDL – Rolling on the floor laughing sampai masuk dalam longkang!
**ROTFLSMDL – Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off!
***ROTFLMAOWLKITA!! – Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off with legs kicking in the air!

Numbers that don’t quite make sense

Posted by pervster on August 27, 2008

Numbers that don’t quite make sense in today’s The Sun:

PERMATANG PAUH BY-ELECTION:EC reports 65.25% turnout

BUKIT MERTAJAM (Aug 26 , 2008) : A total of 38,144 voters cast their ballots in the Permatang Pauh by-election today, accounting for 65.25% of the 58,459 registered voters in the constituency at the close of polling centres at 5pm.

———————-
PKR – 31195
BN – 15524
AKIM – 92
Total – 46811

Voting was brisk ……….. But the overall turnout (62.25%) was much lower than the GE when 82.06% voted.

Also stated in The Sun:

Election Commission secretary Datuk Kamaruzaman Mohd Noor announced that 38144 of the 58459 registered voteres cast their ballots.

———————-
Now, it can’t be 62.25%, because
62.25% = 36391 people

And if it is indeed as what the EC claims, then:

38144 out of 58459 = 65.24%

46811 is more like 80.07%. But this is not including the spoilt votes.

Where the heck did all the other people come from??!!!

So….it got me thinking….. here’s what I think really happened:

ACTUAL count: (assuming undi rosak = 0)

PKR – 31195
BN – 6857
AKIM – 92
Total – 38144

Phantom voters – 8667.

EC guy forgot to count phantom voters…. and only after that he realised the discrepancies and announced another ‘official’ result. Ahaks!

Now… back to the celebrations!…. REFORMASI!!!!

Hear my dream, Permatang Pauh…

Posted by ella-mae on August 26, 2008

This Thursday 45 years ago, in what is still considered until today to be the definitive moment of the American Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King, Jr spoke his dream from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

The speech which I first heard as twenty year old year in university left me teary-eyed because for the first time in my life I had to face racial polarisation which I never had to in school or in the neighbourhood where I grew up.

The first few months in my campus surroundings left me terribly disheartened because I was expected to hang out with only “my own kind” and my seniors would express disapproval if I mingled a little too closely with a person of another ethnicity.

Things have not changed since I left university. If anything, it has only gotten worse. “Sifat Toleransi” actively promoted by the BN government in the education system has only left us superficially united.

In my book the word tolerate is probably one of the more despicable words because to tolerate means “to put up with”, “to stomach” or “to endure” something one would otherwise never be quite at ease with. Not a good thing when I have tolerate my fellow countrymen – how can we be united if we have to stomach and put up with one another’s differences?

Barisan Nasional Neraka has done this to us through their many divide and rule policies which have caused us to view one another with distrust and wariness.

Just yesterday I met a fellow “my kind” who thought the only way Malaysia can be saved is through a violent movement in reminiscent of demagogues launched by megalomaniacs like Hitler. I spent a good hour giving him a dressing down: enlightening the guy – telling  him the way he thinks very clearly  shows that he too is a successful product of evil BN policies and propaganda.

Trust me, there are many out there who still think like him.

Anwar Ibrahim promises Ketuanan Rakyat will replace Ketuanan Melayu when Pakatan Rakyat becomes the government. While the politicians of the BN kind are spewing hate at every chance they got, I was deeply touched when I heard Anwar speak Anak Melayu, anak kita, anak Cina… anak kita, anak India… pun anak kita. Mengapa harus kita bezakan?”

Of course like you, I too have heard things about him, what Anwar did when he was part of the dreadful BN. But I believe while every man has a past, he also has a future.  Six years in prison: away from loved ones and the public eye must have given Anwar much time to think of and ponder on his past sins. I believe the Anwar Ibrahim we see and hear today is indeed a changed man,  and that he is the one who can bring about the changes and reforms Malaysia so desperately needs for survival.

Today, the 58, 000 plus voters of Permatang Pauh have the magnanimous task of deciding Malaysia’s future! As Martin Luther King, Jr shared his dream with his fellow Americans, I too would like to share my little dream with the people of Permatang Pauh (and you).

I dream of the day when we will cease to exist as Malays, Chinese, Indians or “dan lain-lain” but for us to truly be united as Bangsa Malaysia.

I dream of the day when all Malaysian citizens will consciously work to encourage national integration while mutually respecting and loving one another.

I dream of the day when Malaysians will not view another with doubt and suspicion but to stand guard against every form of extremism, chauvinism, racism and isolation.

I dream of the day when colour of skin will not matter, ethnicity will not matter and religious affiliation will not matter.

I dream of the day when the same treatment and opportunities will be accorded equally to every Malaysian with no marginalisation of any ethnic race.

I dream of the day when political parties will truly serve Malaysia: the nation, and not themselves or their members with leaders who will rule over the land honestly with integrity, wisdom in financial management and honest stewardship of all things that has been entrusted to them by the people of Malaysia.

I dream of the day when a national commitment is implemented to expose and remove corrupted individuals and may their positions be replaced by people of good standing who are willing to serve the country well while performing their duties effectively.

I dream of the day when transparency, integrity and impartiality will not be mere words used to “colour” outwardly impressive political speeches but to honestly be used in every good judgment for excellent governance of our beloved nation.

Permatang Pauh, I pray for a just outcome of the by election: I pray you will set aside every prejudice, every preconception and vote in all honesty from your heart… for what is best (right now) for Malaysia: She has suffered so much, our nation, our beautiful motherland.

I am in an emotional mood right now but before I go, let me share a simple chorus from one of my favourite songs…

Hear our prayer

Oh Lord, God Almighty

Come heal our land

As we seek you, worship you

Lord, I pray you will restore and recompense all that we have lost in the past. I pray tonight we will see the birth of a Better Malaysia. Amen!
