Dr M: Democracy in Malaysia is Dead 0 (0)

democracy

More interesting things especially on democracy and Malaysia are taking place on social media and in late nights when I do have the time, I usually spent it on surfing through Facebook instead of writing a post for the blog. Another is that I have gone “back to school” and I managed to get one of the certificate that I targeted to get this year. Unfortunately it is just a start and I have another target to meet in the next few months. So, it is back to doing revisions and the dreaded homework in the coming months. Image: Pinterest

And times are tough and times are not right for one to simply sit back and take things easy. Work too have been piling up over the last few months and the expectations from both in and out of the organisation have been very, very demanding.

(Only in Malaysia this happens on a regular basis and it is not a laughing matter. After all this country is best of the best when it comes to corruption free Government and corruption fighting agencies, eh?. Cartoon source: http://johnnyongcartoons.blogspot.com/)

Whilst we are largely pre-occupied with MH370 tragedy and have been keeping up our hopes for some kind of closure, some Malaysian politicians have been having some strange itchiness and have been trying to outdo each other in making themselves looking like an ass in public.… Click to read the rest

PM Talking Cock 0 (0)

Another case of you help me, I help you?

(With elections around the corner, expect more incidents of talking cock to be sprouting out from the foamy mouth of the many half-past-six politicians around the country and on a more regular basis too. Image source: http://www.olx.com.sg)

In Malaysia, I think we have come to a point where we can take in usual talk cock from the politicians in this country on a regular basis but when it comes to the Prime Minister himself talking cock and even though you may say that you have see it all, heard it all, you should know that at this level, even talking cock has it’s limit

Datuk Seri Najib Razak today pledged to give more freedom to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in the appointment of its officers if Barisan Nasional (BN) wins two-thirds control of Parliament in the next general election.

NFC: When They Will Be Really Honest? 0 (0)

(Countdown – 336 days to “doomsday”)

(An unexpected revelation of corruption involves the cows or an internal chess-play for the Pantai Parliamentary seat? Cartoon source: Zunar / Malaysiakini)

It could be just an hypothetical question but here’s one last post before the holidays…

This article by Citizen Nades on the NFC mess was a good one and if you had missed reading this in The Sun last Wednesday, here it is in verbatim (basically it nails the same thing that every tax payer has in their mind):-

Be honest and answer all questions

It’s A Suicide But…. 0 (0)

This is serious and very damaging…

(So, this was “suicide due to guilt feeling” back then but with a twist now – it is driven to suicide by aggressive interrogation. No matter how we look at it, Teoh Beng Hock should not be dead in the first place – it is a tragic loss and failure by MACC to conduct its business in the right way)

Free Malaysia Today reported:-

“It was found that he was not killed.

Case for PR’s 100 Day Plan 0 (0)

(Warning: Long post ahead)

(PR is making it case to the general public that it can make a positive difference if it becomes the Government but we need a more convincing case. Image source: http://wargamarhaen.blogspot.com)

Interesting topic for the beginning of the year…

Well, it is in our best interest (no matter which side of the politics we may be) to know what the opposition intends to do if they come in power – although the chances of that happening in recent months is almost nil, no thanks to the Oppositions shooting themselves in their foot numerous times in the last 4 years (but who knows what can happen in the next few years).… Click to read the rest

Speechless Corruption 0 (0)

What the MACC still waiting for? The usual green light from the top?

(Why care about these people when RM50 million of hard cold cash goes to your pockets on a yearly basis and no one can touch you, right? Image source: http://www.sarawakreport.org)

Despite saying “we are not as corrupt as we are perceived to be”, one need to wonder whether MACC still sleeping on the job?… Click to read the rest

MACC in “Action” 0 (0)

I have read about it but nothing beats watching it in video…

[youtube = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ffbSgUy_1E]

Just watched “Malaysia’s Funniest and Tragic Court” video and it was hilarious to see the “experienced” 24 years MACC lawyer trying very, very hard to prove a point in the case.

Watch out for Part 5 – the juicy part is there but then again, the comedy starts in Part 1 itself.… Click to read the rest

MACC & Untouchables? 0 (0)

(There is no smoke without fire. It cannot be “something fishy” without corruption. The question is why a RM100 dormant company can buy properties at almost 85% discount if not for gross conflict of interest and personal gains. Image source: http://hornbillunleashed.wordpress.com)

Some people still think we are living in caves, they really do…

At these days, information is obtained at lighting pace and at a press of a button; it is not easy to sweep things under the carpet.… Click to read the rest

MACC can truly improve? 0 (0)

This is the question that been asked many times but yet to be answered satisfactorily by the agency itself…

(We don’t have Senapathy – the old man who kills corrupt government officials (in the movie Indian) and even his own corrupt son to weed out corruption from the system. We have MACC but the question is how far it has been effective in “weeding” out the corruption from the system.Click to read the rest
