Government Of Abuse And Misuse

My sentiments, exactly, about the Internal Security Act or ISA.

If a government had to resort to a detention without trial in order to "protect the country from a security threat" caused by all but ONE person, then that government does not deserve to govern.

It was a blatant abuse and misuse of power. An abuse which was reflective of the government's inability - or unwillingness? - to engage the people in connection with every grievance which the people had.

An abuse which was reflective of a governmental mindset that did not respect criticisms; did not listen to the voice of its own soul, ie, the people which it sets out to govern; did not give 2 sen to the people's rights and freedom.

An abuse which was vile. And depraved.

- Art Harun on RPK's arrest


RPK has been freed, but we must always remain vigilant.

More atrocities will be committed on the citizens, by brutally assaulting peaceful crowds and arresting to intimidate.

It is not over yet - far from it, but we will fight the fight and restore our country to its past semblance of glory.

The infamous Umno potatohead gestapomen, namely, Botak Hamid & Evil Gani, tak puas hati. Like that rabid dentist Khir Toyol, they think they can wrest Selangor back from Pakatan once RPK & Anwar are locked away out of sight! Frankly, those Umno zombies remind me so much of Dickhead Cheney & Buuuussssh. Suspect they aren't really HUMAN - either they've been bodysnatched by humorless reptilians - or they're actually androids manufactured by a mad Russian scientist through a secret project funded by Daim Zainuddin.

Mathematical Proof that Mahathirism is Evil:


"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist." - Sir Winston Churchill

I think someone is fighting to retain the image that he is our greatest statesman.

In the grand scheme of Msian "democratic" history, he may WELL have this tile by default.

Why? Tunku Abdul Rahman's legacy is more or less obliterated by bigots. Despite the fact he did not die rich, his kids are not rich & neither are they in politics

The others after TAR? Hmm...let's see what we remember them for?

Oh Yes! 2 of 'em for raising their kids in the art of keris waving..& 1 for a very nice residential area in KL

Then came Mr Iron fist & after him came Mr Lembek Kambing...

so maybe rightfully - the ONLY "great" statesman left is this person whose sell-by date haa long since expired ?

If I could handcuff and drag these racist, corrupt, fascist Cabinet members and rogue Police Officers kicking and screaming to some court like that at Nuremberg to stand trial for crimes against the Malaysian people and humanity, I would do so, even at the risk of losing my own life.

If God gave me the power to take the lives of these murderers, crooks and thieves, I would do so without hesitation.

Such are the muderous thoughts crossing my mind this ordinary Saturday evening!!

Too bad that all the people who really know how to run the country are busy driving taxi cabs and cutting hair...even hawking at foodcourts too.. !!! ptui to the present government !!!

Antares, I think they're pretty normal - except theyve had their brains surgically removed.

Ian and Gobloking, Only the truly stupid can believe that Mahathir is our best statesman. Unless of course you subscribe fervently to the notion that in the world of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

Jarod, that's a very interesting point. JB is in the clutches of UMNO. Very hard to penetrate, but someone has to do it.

DPP, I feel you, man.

Political clown, it's entirely possible. :)
