A Shared Dream.

I think this post is worth our effort to make it viral to the whole nation !!!
If this does not move a patriotic Malaysian,nothing can.
Copied from BBC write up by Mej Mior Rosli TUDM (Rtd)

Good afternoon to all. The fight for a free Malaysia must go on!
Let us get one thing clear – the country and the government are separate entities. Governments come and go, the country is eternal.

We owe our allegiance to the country, not to the government.
Therefore, saying bad things about a bad government is not being anti-national. Most important of all, voting against a bad government is not being anti-national.
A bad government does not deserve loyalty. Disloyalty to the government is not disloyalty to the country; in fact, voting out a bad government is being loyal to the country.

Today, Malaysia woke up and many hearts were broken.

We mourn our nation not because we lost, but because we were cheated.

We lost not to a better party, but we lost to injustice.

We lost not to a better system, but we lost to the lack of integrity.

We lost not to a better count, but we lost to the failure in upholding civil rights.

We lost not to a better leader, but we lost to corruption.

We lost not to a better policy, but we lost to deceit.

But we will, and must not, lose heart.

We may feel sad, but we must not give way to despair.

We may feel angry, but we must not lose our righteous ways.

We may feel cheated, but we must fight on.

We may feel like leaving, but we must stay together.

We may feel like giving up, but we must now let the dream carry us.

We may feel like nothing will change, but we must now become that change.

Bersih spirit lives on!
We will rally.
We will fight on.
We will not give up.
We will become a Better Malaysia.

Clean elections
Clean government
Right to dissent
Save our economy
Strengthen parliamentary democracy.

Measuring The Productivity Of Our Ministers.

1. I have a corrupted version of Parkinson's Law. It says that useless work expands so as to justify a bloated cabinet.

2. By the end of this year, China is expected to have a GDP of 15.6 trillion USD. And according to econometric models her GDP in 2022 is expected to reach usd16.6 trillion and in 2023, USD 17 4 trillion.

3. In contrast, Malaysia, in 2020 had a GDP of around usd336 billion. Singapore had 340b and
Philippines had USD 360b.

4. Let's take Germany. In 2020 Germany had a GDP of USD 3.806 trillion. Many times ours.

5. China has a cabinet of 35 while Germany has one of 15. We have a cabinet of 70+.

6. That means that the productivity and intelligence of our ministers is half that of China's and almost 5 times less that of Germany.

7. Hence, my watered down Parkinson's Law. Useless work expands so as to justify the bloated cabinet

8. So what are our ministers doing? Perhaps two to scratch Ismails testicles, one to comb his hair, one to apply deodorant to his armpits and one to wash his bottom.

9. I now charge our ministers to produce a GDP of usd1 trillion like that of Indonesia's.

10. That ought to be the measure of our cabinet. Otherwise, like a late friend in kampung Ubai, Pekan says, 'you failed'!

11. Our GDP is now overshadowed by even Vietnam. Our ministers are not paying attention to the people's productivity.

12. If we keep sending the wrong reward signals, people will promise to work less. Perhaps we are busy taxing those who work abroad.

13. These people work hard abroad, pay taxes there, and you want to tax them again? That's double taxation, the bean counter at mof should know.

14. You are encouraging a climate for the working of a perverted backward supply of labour curve. People want to work less not because working less is sufficient to earn an acceptable level of living, but producing more will be taken to pay for the upkeep of a pernicious government. Abdullah Munsyi spoke about this more than a century ago.

15. The energies of the people are wasted in unproductive pursuits. One, for example, is you insist on infusing your Malayness in every aspect of life. You create tension instead of focusing on productivity. But in so doing you are dissipating the enemies of the people and using the tension to divert peoples attention in measuring your functionality. The reality is, you are worthless.

16. Ponder this too. One of the reasons why countries like China and Indonesia are successful is because they abhor corruption. In China, corruption invites the death penalty. In Indonesia, there are suggestions that corruption be punished with death. Indonesia progresses from a poor country to a rich one because they want to exterminate corruption.

17. Malaysia progresses from being a rich country to a poor one, because it embraces corruption. Where corruption invites even a death penalty, in Malaysia, it is defended to the death!

The Impending Umno War.

1. Zahid Hamidi sowed his own seeds of destruction when he appointed Ismail Sabri as pm. It wasn't a show of magnanimity when umno approved Ismail as pm.

2. The Bagan Latuk mp was beset with a slew of court cases. He recognised he would be a liability to umno. In a way, it's an admission of guilt on his part.

3. Zahid had no choice, but to give way to the next ranked leader of umno to be proposed as pm. Clearly it wasnt a show of goodwill on his part.

4. Do you think Zahid doesnt want to be pm? A position that gives him power over life, death and taxes? He certainly could find some pliable enough judges to make his and his ilks's cases go away.

5. En passant(not the chess move) it means that not all judges are made of stout constution. As for Zahid, he must have rue the day when he made the fatal decision to allow Ismail be the pm.

6. Its water under the bridge, rice has turned into porridge. But such a stupid decision is expected from a dullard like him.

7. To Zahid, Ismail is now the Sword of Damocles, pointing direct to his heart. Ismail is no more the obsequious subordinate.

8. You can already read the writing on the wall. Ismail Sabri has already ignored several of Zahid's and umno's policies. He's rubbishing them.

9. But Zahid is too much a dullard to see these. Ismail has blatantly disregarded the umno general assembly's resolution and mkts directive that all umno members to resign from holding ppbms government posts.

10. Ismail himself never resigned. Indeed, he and 'mad dog' Nazri did some last minute manoeuvrings to seize power.

11. The actions of Ismail and several others, who ignored umnos resolution and directive, were acts of insubordination and mutinous. They were acts of betrayal.

12. Zahid forgot that a rule of a pack like umno is that forms of betrayal must be avenged and punished, and not rewarded.

13. Hence, people like Nazri, Shahidan, and Anuar Musa will forever think that Zahid is the thickest of all umno presidents.

14. To add insult to injury, Ismail appointed Zahid's detractors to cabinet posts. Recently, these people held a pc of defiance. That's a declaration of war to Zahid, essentially.

15. I am not judging Ismail, saying it's good or bad. But those are signs of quite ruthlessness to seize and retain power. All hail to him.

16. Ismail must now exploit all the advantages and fight a battle he can win.

17. The chief advantage he has is a psychological one. The umno people are unaccustomed at seeing the PM NOT the party president. He has won the battle of the mind.

18. There is thus a ready mindset to accept him as also the party president.

19. Then, he has the support of Zahid's detractors, who can serve as his warlords. By appointing many of these to cabinet and GLC posts, he has ensured that Zahid's loyalists are out of orbit.

20. Zahid's eventual downfall is the result of his own doing. He did not expel his enemies and did not avenge betrayal.

21. Why should he help the court cluster group? Let them die a natural death. Let them be too preoccupied, and in particular let Najib shout himself coarse and blue in the face.

22. Ismail must now send his emissaries and cultivate the ketua perhubungan and bahagian.

23. On the ashes of this war, he can start building an honest government and please downsize the bloated cabinet.

24. By having such an agenda, he can win the alliance of party seniors who have been duped by Zahid and his accomplices. Its no loss cultivating people like Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

25. Ismail must strike while the iron is still hot. Carpe  Diem!

Title. 'If the law presupposes that,the the law is an ass. Mr Bumble. Part 1.

1. I had to have a part 2 to my article, the Malay Enigma because I felt compelled to write this.

2. Common sense should prevail, rather than the twisted and strenuous logic of the shyster lawyer.

3. When Mr Bumble, the spouse of a domineering wife, is told in court that the law presupposes that the wife follows the direction of the husband, he replied:-

4. If the law presupposes that, said Mr Bumble, then the law is an ass.

5. I am of course referring to the conviction of the most infamous felon, Najib Razak. You convict a person, then on the next breath, sets him free. Where is the common sense?

6. In my opinion the court of first instance, the high court made a mistake last time and now the CoA compounded the mistake. It's a case of you fooled me once, shame on you, fooled me twice, shame on me.

7. When the courts made such an asinine mistake, I am inclined to agree with Mr Dick the Butcher.

8. The first thing we do, is let's kill all the lawyers. The judges, pardon me, should be killed twice.

9. What happened to Najib Razak is such an asinine mistake. Let the judges never forget that justice, must not only be seen to be done, it must actually be done.

Let our judges remember the dictum of Lord Hewart, CJ that justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done.

10. I think in the case of Najib Razak, it seems that justice was done, but we didn't see it.

11. So I ask the question again-you convict a person and then set him free? Where is the effing logic? You can get punch drunk in trying to understand the illogic.

12. To me, it has reached a comical point, that I want to add the following snippet:-

13. The joke is especially severe on the Pahang people in general and on pekan people in particular:-

14. I am surprised the judges didn't consider the importance of the common good. Instead, they directed their minds to inconsequentials. That implicitly showed their capitulation to the rich and powerful.

15. If the law presupposes that by freeing Najib, the felon will behave with remorse and behaves circumspectively, then as Mr Bumble says, the law is an ass!

16. In fact, the felon behaved with wanton abandon and recklessly. He played golf with a billionaire buddy from Singapore.

17. Whether they played 18-hole or 1-hole golf, that is not our business. Playing golf is not the issue. The issue is what the particular golf represents.

18. That particular golf game represents defiance and mocking of the judiciary. It represents the felon's recalcitrance. That's the issue.

19. It is regrettable the judges did not have the far-sightedness when freeing Najib. Or perhaps Najib's aura extinguished that.

20. The reasonable common man, want Najib imprisoned. It is regrettable that the judges, having the sophisticated reasoning they do, failed to give expression to the wishes of the reasonable common man on the Srijaya omnibus.

The Malay Enigma. Part 1.

1. I am at odds to explain the bizarre mindset of the Malays. In a way, they have a death-wish. The famous saying attributed to Hang Tuah 'takkan Melayu hilang didunia', means exactly the opposite. Malays will wither as in layu.

2. They will eventually perish if they refuse to adapt. Its adapt or perish. That is the rule of all living organism.

3. Unfortunately, they refuse to adapt to changing social, political and economic changes. They feel comforted with their closed minds. The late Sanusi Junid said the main preoccupation of the Malays is finding ways on how to increase their libido.

4. The observation by the eminent Malay thinker, Zaaba that the most salient feature of the poverty of the Malays, is poverty of the mind.

5. Their homes are devoid of reading material. They prefer reading' Gila Gila' and books on ghost stories. They read, on average, 2 pages a year.

6. Hence, like Zaaba said, they are more moved by all sorts of tahyul, pelesit, bajangan, will 'o' the wisp, etc. Rational thinking is non-existent.

7. The same is generally true of the East Malaysian natives. How they react to the elections is interesting. Or are they more interested in erections? Will they throw rational thinking out the window?

8. As a result of their refusal to adapt and their laziness to cultivate their minds, their brains become stunted in relation to their bodies. Body like a buffalo, brain like a pea.

9. If the government of the day promises to upgrade 1000 schools, electrify and supply water, wouldn't whoever becomes government be able to do the same?

10. Because of these afflictions, among others, the Malays developed dinosaurich features. Most notably, a smallish brain incapable of rational and right-thinking.

11. Because the Malays refuse to adapt and adopt honest and for the common good thinking, they will sadly suffer the same fate of the dinosaurs -go extinct!

12. If we Spinosaurus, with no backbones, want and continue to elect Tyrannosaurus, what more can we do? We reap what we sow.

13. We elect a tyrant when we allow such a bugger to foist the government's incompetence, injustice, blatant racism, endemic corruption which is acculturalised and accepted as a norm, a country riddled with its 1MDBs- such a decision is tyranny on ourselves.

14. We are sadists and masochists, enjoying hurting ourselves and deriving orgasmic pleasure from it, what can we do?

15. And allow me to be blunt and speak with candour. The people, chiefly to blame for the mess and implosion we are now in, are the Malays. They are responsible for the outcome of our politics.

16. If they choose to elect a Malay led government that is incompetent and corrupt, they can only blame themselves for it.

17. Isn't it the tanah melayu that they dream of. Decadent and incompetent, filled with all kind of Intransigences?

18. The warnings about placing the country under mismanagement is evidenced in one of the celebrated passages in the Quran.

19. The verses in question are verses 15 to 17 from the surah Saba'.

20. One possible interpretation is this. They tell us of a story about the people in a country called Saba'. They were initially blessed with fertile lands where they were able to draw bountiful living. Their lands were divinely blessed.

21. They soon become haughty and forgot the meaning of sabr, dilligence, syukur and forgot to offer benedictions. They elected an evil government and countenanced its corruption, decadence and debauchery. The voices of upright men were ignored. They rebelled against God.

22. Divine retribution came quickly. God sends a great flood that turned the once fertile land into a desolate and barren place. The once prosperous country became a poverty-stricken nation.

23. Its society imploded, the country destroyed, while the leaders fiddled as the country burns because of 3 reasons.

24. First, the people voted in an evil government. 2nd,the people countenanced and acquiesced in the evil. 3rd,the voices of upright people are ignored.

25. What's happening in Malaysia parallels what happened in Saba'. Our country is moving in that direction unless we change our mindset. Woe betide us.

26. Didn't Allah says in Ar Ra'ad: 11, that he will not change the destiny of a people unless they change what's inside the first?

27. Instead, the Malays seem to have a new Weltanschauung:-

28. The first order of the day is:let's form an HONEST government. When Kishore Mahbubani was asked about the secret of Singapore's success, he answered: MPH.

29. That stands for Meritocracy, Pragmatism and Honesty. Except in our country, we need honesty first before we can apply meritocracy and pragmatism.
