“Politics taken its TOLL on Economy..??

My brother in law who is Australian asked me,”Is it also happening over in Malaysia.?” Of course it is as the economic jitters caused by the massive plunge in financial markets has affected the whole global economy. Finance Minister Najib and also Deputy Prime Minister in this Malaysiakini report made a reassuring statement http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/90626 The government quickly offered investors reassurance today that the economy was strong despite turbulence in US and regional financial markets. “The fundamentals of the Malaysian economy are strong. The economy has the capacity to weather the destabilising consequences. Malaysians need to remain united and cohesive as the country prepares to face the global financial economic challenge.

But what was to come out from this PC was also quite straight forward and with it a “warning” with possible consequences.”What is so uncertain about our political situation? BN continues to be in power. Pakatan has been trying to rock the BN administration to submission but it still holds on to power steadfastly.

Now is not the time for politicking, speculation and political game by anybody. The government will act responsibly and swiftly to address any eventuality to safeguard the interest of the people and the nation,” Najib said.

Pakatan won an unprecedented 82 seats in the 222-member Parliament in March and took control of five of Malaysia’s 13 states. BN now has only a 28-seat majority in Parliament. UMNO has also indicated that PM Abdullah may step down by March and hand over the reins to Najib. Of course we know that if a country is too involved in too much politiking it creates uncertainty and unstability for foreign investors to even consider setting up their operations or bases.

The fears of political chaos in the country was also brushed aside by Najib and he continued that the government is confident of weathering the crisis as the BN is firmly in control with the majority still at 138 BN-81 Pakatan 3 independant. Najib in his capacity reassures the nation that the economy and political situation is very much in control and he knows that other factors are also crucial in maintaining the country remains stable.

Meanwhile Anwar took advantage of the season’s festivity to reiterate his populist economic philosophy that national wealth must be shared among the rakyat.The opposition leader said that “Malaysia is not mono-cultural”; as such, its economic growth and wealth must be understood and underscored by a wider meaning than is currently in practice.”Wealth cannot revolve around the few,it should become the motivator to liberate society from oppression and tyranny.This is what we emphasise to be a human economy. “An economy built on human principles of man as a moral being and not merely homo economicus who only prioritises one’s self,”

Politics certainly has taken it toll on the nation and for now with Hari Raya Aidil Fitri tomorrow Malaysians will be too busy wishing those of the Muslim faith a SELAMAT HARI RAYA………and what happens economically outside in the world can wait while Malaysians celebrate and indulge in food and merry making…..

    The use of ISA to protect Nargis is taking a toll of the Nation, the capital flight was the nett results.

    The UMNO Clown Botak and his cohorts will be made to taste their own medicines when the time of reckoning comes very soon.

    Leave BN, all Component Parties with a conscience must leave the Evil Master Oppressor UMNO for good ok??? Leave & let them, the UMNO clowns to settle the horse trading between Flip Flop and C4 ok???

    Come October 2008 there is nothing left but the Opposition Leader’s Post to Hand Over from Flip Flop to C4 ok???

    There should be no peace for Botak if the ISA detainees are not released and the oppressive draconian law is not abolished because such injustices are not tolerated and thus create great discontentment in this modern society. One day Botak and his cohorts should be made to eat their own medicine for the injustices they have committed against the detainees especially RPK, our Brave Hero no doubts.

    We call upon all the Rakyats of Malaysia to sign a Petition to be sent to the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to release RPK from his detention under ISA because there is a hidden agenda of a conspiracy of using his detention to silence him so that he could not further release more evidences against the real C4 murderers of Altantuya because all the accused were all fall guys of the real murderers because they all did not have a real & logical motive to murder the Mongolian Lady.

    THE NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA HAS COME & THE FIRST THING IS TO ALLOW APPEALS & THEN RELEASE ALL ISA DETAINEES, ABOLISH ISA, OSA, SEDITION OR WHATEVER ACTS THAT COULD BE EXPLOITED AND MADE PREJUDICIAL AND OPPRESSIVE TO THE VOICE OF DISSENT FROM ALL THE RAKYATS.

    It is very easy to generate Police Reports against DSAI by using Penang Mamak Umno’s 25 Members headed by Wan Abidin Zain, who claimed to be non-partisan, using their uneasiness that most Penangites will now be boycotting Nasi Kandar one more round???

    It is very Sad that the legacy of Malaysian Independence is reduced by this Moronic Flip Flop Coward into great disrepute and a laughing stock of the whole world and knowing very well that the UMNO Government has technically collapsed and they have lost locus standi to govern but yet he has decided to shamelessly still cling on to power via dubious means like hiding himself via using of the ISA and we cannot imagine that the Malaysia Moronic Flip Flop Coward has now stoop so low and using the Police Deputy IGP as his willing tools especially the Deputy IGP’s clearly taking side as the Police must be neutral and should be not politiking for him.

    The Coward Moronic Flip Flop Chicken dare not meet DSAI face to face to settle matters but chose hiding under the use of ISA and that is what you have as a disgraceful cowardice leader for UMNO.

    After 51 years MALAYSIA IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE but backwards because of the Oppression from the UMNO goons’ divide and rule fear tactics the Rakyats have matured & you must see all this coming because All The Rakyats of Malaysia are all fed-up & can no longer with-stand the hypocrisies, bullshits, lies and deceits of these UMNO Clowns now in Power ok??? What Oil Subsidies IS nothing but a hoax that the UMNO Government MAKE BELIEF THAT THERE IS AN OIL PRICE SUBSIDY TO THE PRICE OF FUEL BUT IN FACT THERE WERE NONE THIS IS BECAUSE MALAYSIA IS THE NET EXPORTER OF OIL THAT IS ONLY AFTER DEDUCTING DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION THE BALANCE IS EXPORTED TO EARN FOREIGN EXCHANGE. THESE LIARS MAKE US BELIEVE BY CONTINUOUS PROPAGANDA THAT THERE ARE OIL PRICE SUBSIDY BUT IN FACT THERE WERE NONE BECAUSE THE PRICE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACTUAL SALE LOCALLY AND THE PRICE THEY INTENDED TO SELL ABOARD IS AN OPPORTUNITY COST NOT PRICE SUBSIDY.

    We urge all BN Components & MPs with a conscience to do the necessary to make possible a New Malaysia for all Rakyats of Malaysia so that all our children and their children & their children’s children’s future will be safe and secured in the Country we all love and not be intimidated by those UMNO Clowns now in power with their oppressive & fear tactics and in the verge of making Malaysia a Police State if left unchecked otherwise. Save RPK as he is the midst of a conspiracy of the real murderers of Altantuya to silence him for good, instead of being C4ed he could be poisoned and worse off if he is on hunger strike by himself. The Acting IGP is defending the Police position after being made the tools of UMNO’s fear tactics & so he is now making lame excuses for being the Stringed Puppet to be easily manipulated by the Puppeteer, power that be. The Deputy IGP must be held personally responsible for the safety of RPK who has been heard to be tortured otherwise he must be made to eat his own medicine come the New Dawn of Malaysia.

    Moronic PeeM and Botak Home Minister last minutes’ attempts to cling on power by using the fear tactics of using the ISA at their whims and fancies selectively against dissent & tried to deny their own actions as they now have no balls to face the wrath of the all the Rakyats of Malaysia. ONE DAY THE MORONIC BOTAK AND FLIP FLOP AND C4 MUST BE MADE TO TASTE THEIR OWN MEDICINE OK?

    All Rakyats of Malaysia will see to that these Clowns will be thrown out soon come the New Dawn of Malaysia & that all Rakyats of Malaysia will welcome the New Malaysia on Malaysia Day 916, 2008 for a Malaysia for All Malaysians.

    Justice MUST BE DONE for Altantuya and for all those detained under ISA without the trial nor the rights of appeal. Light-up a Candle in the Lantern of the Mid-Autumn Festival for them all to usher in the NEW DAWN OF MALAYSIA COME 916, 2008

    The present government has put in place someone who is oppressive, ruthless, uncaring, inhumane, power-crazy, arrogant, irresponsible and indifferent to have the sole authority to place any citizen in detention without trial at his own perception and discretion. Why should the citizen of this country accept that? This person is put in place by a so-called ruling party who has less than 30% of the voting population’s support. Why are we allowing hom to have such absolute power? I think the ruling government has failed to protect the right of the citizen and allow them to be terrorised by such a rude person. The citizen must be given the right to counter this madness in empowering one person in the country to threatened the whole population. It looks like he is even more powerful than the PM and the King. His instruction to detain people as a result of his own perceived possibility of unrest from his self-proclaimed “majority” of the people (or his party member?) is most frightening and difficult for the ordinary people to comprehend. Can some rationality prevail in this country and put some sense to do what is right for the citizen and not the political party.
