Hisham: M'sian firms not involved in Wikileaks missile scam

Posted: 02 Dec 2010 11:58 PM PST

PUTRAJAYA - The two Malaysian companies implicated by Wikileaks as being involved in a network controlled by Iran to purchase missile technology from China have been cleared of any wrongdoing and pose no threat to national security.

"We have been monitoring these two companies since 2008 and from our observations, they are of no threat to national security," Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said at a press conference here Friday.

Claiming that reports on the whistleblower website Wikileaks were not new, Hishammuddin said the more surprising thing was speculation that the Malaysian government was not doing more to stop the two firms.

"If they (international agencies) have any doubts or new information, why not just ask us instead of communicating and speculating among themselves?" he asked, adding that the ministry is in contact with the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies.

Hishammuddin also said his ministry had been given full cooperation and spoken to the directors of the two companies.

The ministry is working closely with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the Defence Ministry and the Foreign Ministry on the case, he added.

Harga RON95, Diesel, Gula & Gas Naik Lagi, BN Menipu Rakyat

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 05:54 AM PST

Petrol RON95 dan diesel naik lima sen, gula mahal 20 sen

Harga petrol RON95 sah mengalami kenaikan lima sen seliter manakala gula pula 20 sen sekilogram (kg) mulai tengah malam ini — kenaikan kali kedua harga produk itu sejak Julai lalu, di bawah dasar pelarasan subsidi diperkenalkan pentadbiran Najib.

Turut mengalami kenaikan ialah diesel, naik lima sen kepada RM1.80 seliter.

Ekoran pelarasan itu, RON95 akan dijual RM1.90 seliter.

Pelarasan itu juga membawa kepada kenaikan gas petroleum cecair (PLG) kepada RM1.90kg iaitu naik lima sen berbanding sekarang.

Kedua-dua bahan api petrol dan diesel serta LPG dan gula mengalami kenaikan pada Julai lalu apabila dasar pelarasan diperkenalkan dalam usaha kerajaan mahu mengurangkan subsidi.

Petrol RON97 yang tidak disubsidi telah mengalami kenaikan pada 1 November dan 1 Disember lalu, tetapi kerajaan tidak membuat pengumuman atas alasan ia perubahan kerana pengapungan harga.

RON97 tidak mengalami kenaikan kali ini.

The Malaysian Insider tengah hari tadi melaporkan produk-produk itu akan mengalami kenaikan mulai tengah malam ini.

Dengan pelarasan kali ini, kerajaan menjangkakan dapat menjimatkan RM621.9 juta dari produk petrol RON95, RM213.2 juta (diesel), RM63.5 juta (LPG) dan RM283.5 juta (gula) setiap tahun ataupun RM1.18 bilion.

Pada Julai lalu, kerajaan menjangkakan harga tidak akan naik sehingga akhir tahun ini.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Unit Pengurusan Prestasi dan Pencapaian (Pemandu) Datuk Seri Idris Jala (gambar) berkata, pelarasan subsidi diperlukan untuk mengurangkan perbelanjaan kerajaan.

"Kami melakukan yang ini (pelarasan subsidi) untuk memastikan defisit kita dapat dikurangkan. Kami adalah sebuah kerajaan yang bertanggungjawab.

"Kami akan memastikan kita hidup dalam lingkungan keupayaan (kita)," kata beliau pada majlis taklimat pengumuman pelarasan subsidi di pejabatnya petang tadi.

Kata beliau, walaupun ada kenaikan lima sen, harga jualan RON95 dan juga LPG serta diesel dan gula masih rendah berbanding di Indonesia.

"Lebih rendah berbanding Singapura dan Thailand," katanya.

Turut hadir ialah Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

"Salah satu pendekatan untuk mengurangkan kos ialah merasionalkan subsidi kita sebab subsidi keseluruhan Malaysia adalah paling tinggi berbanding negara lain. Subsidi kita tidak sasarkan pada (kumpulan) rakyat miskin," katanya.

Oleh itu kata beliau, penjimatan daripada pelarasan subsidi akan digunakan untuk pembiayaan pembangunan luar bandar, pendudukan, pengangkutan bandar dan bidang-bidang lain dalam Program Transformasi Kerajaan (GTP).

Pertengahan Julai lalu, kerajaan mengumumkan pelarasan harga menyaksikan kenaikan harga beberapa barangan keperluan utama.

Dalam kenyataan diumumkan ketika itu, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak pelarasan harga itu membabitkan petrol, diesel dan Petroleum Gas Cecair (LPG), dan juga gula, yang diselaraskan semula sebagai sebahagian daripada Program Rasionalisasi Subsidi.

Selaras dengan itu, Kabinet telah mengambil keputusan bahawa berkuat kuasa pada 16 Julai 2010, harga bagi bahan api, terutamanya petrol, diesel dan LPG, dan juga gula, akan diselaraskan semula sebagai sebahagian dari Program Rasionalisasi Subsidi.

Menurut Najib yang juga Menteri Kewangan, Penyelarasan semula harga barang-barang itu akan membolehkan kerajaan mengurangkan perbelanjaannya melebihi RM750 juta untuk tahun ini.

Berdasarkan proses itu, kerajaan memutuskan harga petrol RON 95 dan diesel akan diselaraskan sebanyak lima sen seliter bagi semua sektor. LPG akan diselaraskan sebanyak 10 sen sekilogram dan petrol RON 97 akan diapung secara terkawal.

Bagi gula pula, harga akan diselaraskan sebanyak 25 sen sekilogram. -TMI




Ulasan GB

Belum pun sebulan, Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob menyatakan "Harga minyak RON 95 dijangka tidak akan dinaikkan pada tahun ini".

Tetapi pada malam ini, 1Malaysia dikejutkan dengan keputusan kerajaan untuk menaikkan harga minyak RON95 daripada RM1.85 kepada RM1.90 seliter dengan diiringi kenaikan harga diesel, gula dan LPG.

Sungguh jahat mentaliti menteri BN untuk menekan rakyat dengan mengemukakan alasan "pelarasan subsidi" dan sebegitu mudah rakyat 1Malaysia ditipu oleh kerajaan BN.

Dan kita yakin setiap mereka yang "menipu rakyat" akan tetap ditolak oleh rakyat nanti.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 — The Najib Administration is keen to use futurology to try and predict the trends of the tomorrow and give the public and private sectors a heads up in terms of where to invest.

Kishore Mahbubani's comments on the Nobel Prize

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 12:18 AM PST

By Syed Akbar Ali



Received this in the e mail.

".. on the eve of the award of the Nobel Prize to Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, Kishore Mahbubani, a former Singaporean career diplomat and now dean of public practice at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, spoke at a shipping and offshore conference in Singapore.


He had this to say about the Nobel Committee's picks for the peace prize:


"We all respect the Nobel Peace Prize. Most winners deserve the prizes they get. Nobel Prizes by and large reflect the western world view. The winners in Asia are never leaders who brought great change. The man that did more good than anyone was Deng Xiaoping. When he came to power 800 million people were living on less than one dollar a day. Thirty years later on after the results of his reforms, 200 million lived on less than one dollar a day. Six hundred million people were lifted out of poverty.


Will he ever get a Nobel Peace Prize? Never. Because of the western world view that the prize must be given to dissidents in Asia. Aung San Suu Kyii is one.


What has Obama brought? Where is the peace in Iraq? In Afghanistan?



How can you give him a Nobel Peace Prize? He is a wonderful guy but he has achieved nothing. Deng Xiaoping saved 600 million people and he will never get a Nobel Peace Prize. That's why it is important to step outside the western world view."


My view is that the Nobel Prize has obviously become a tool of western propaganda. Not just the Peace Prize but even in Science there have been tremendous achievements by scientists in the non Western world like Russia and Cuba. Yet few Nobel Prizes have been awarded to scientists from those countries.


They say there is a rigorous process of sifting through possible candidates. The question is what if the candidate or his work does not even get into their selection processes?


The Cuban medical health system is among the best in the world, if not the best. And they are a Third World country. Will they ever get a Nobel Prize ? Not unless some Cuban doctor becomes a dissident like Aung San Suu Kyi.


Please note that even George Bush did not bomb Pakistan as often as Obama has done. Under Obama the US bombs Pakistani villages on a regular basis. Yet Obama was chosen for the Nobel Peace Prize, just weeks after he was elected President.


Ya, Tebang Pokok

Posted: 02 Dec 2010 06:51 PM PST

KUALA LUMPUR: Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) akan bertindak segera dalam tempoh 24 jam bagi mencantas dan menebang pokok yang membahayakan pengguna di sekitar bandar raya ini supaya kejadian meragut nyawa orang awam tidak berlaku pada masa depan.


Timbalan Ketua Pengarah DBKL, Datuk Amin Nordin Abd Aziz, berkata pihaknya memerlukan kerjasama orang awam bagi memaklumkan pokok atau tunggul kayu yang membahayakan di tepi jalan mahupun di kawasan perumahan.
Katanya, orang awam menjadi mata dan telinga DBKL dalam memberi maklumat selain pemantauan yang dilakukan pasukan khas DBKL.
"Mereka boleh membuat aduan terus kepada DBKL sebelum pasukan kami mengambil tindakan sama ada mencantas atau menebang pokok besar serta membuang tunggul mati," katanya.
Petikan Metro


Sebelum beralih ke sungutan utama 

Pagi tadi wa tengok berita pagi. Aisey, wa sudah jadi macam bos wa pula. Pagi-pagi tengok berita. Orang DBKL menyerahkan cek bernilai RM2000 kepada adik arwah yang meninggal setelah dihempap pokok mati bagi meringankan beban kata mereka. 


RM2000 tu aku harap tidak menyebabkan keluarga arwah lupa yang mereka boleh menyaman DBKL. Yang takde memanglah takde, satu juta euro pun tidak boleh mengembalikan yang telah dipanggil mengadap Ilahi, tetapi beban tanggungan dan kerosakan emosi harus diambil kira.

Sungutan utama berdasarkan berita diatas tu:

Orang awam jadi mata dan telinga DBKL eh??? Orang DBKL jadilah mata dan telinga sendiri. Unit menyaman kenderaan bukan main ramai kan? Sesambil ronda menyaman orang tu, ronda sekali la tengok pokok berbahaya. Amacam, boleh? Satu kali saman tak letak dalam petak caj sampai RM100. (kalah saman Polis DIraja Malaysia), lagi nak harapkan orang awam pergi check pokok mati kat tepi jalan Kuala Lumpur. (Ya, aku memang bengkek sikit dengan unit menyaman DBKL neh, manjang saman, bukan nak sediakan kawasan parking yang banyak pun. Punishment without solution. Dahla mesin terima duit siling je. Dr Sheikh Muzaffar Shah dah sampai ke ISS dah, mesin DBKL masih takleh terima duit kertas, canggih tau. Tak caya meh Bangsar meh. )

Sudah ada orang mati, baru nak bertindak. Meh tebang pokok besar depan China Press, Bangsar neh. Asal musim berbunga je penuh bunga kale kuning jatuh atas bumbung kereta yang diletakkan DI DALAM PARKING DBKL tepi jalan tuh. Menyusahkan rakyat jugak tuh.



“The most evil man in the world”

Posted: 02 Dec 2010 11:06 PM PST

Came across this article and it should be interesting reading for those who want to know who really controls the most powerful man in the world – the president of the United States of America who is Barak Obama currently.

This same man had tried to destroy our economy in 1997 during the then infamously known Asian Financial Crisis but was out-smarted by the ingenuity of our then PM, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who took the unprecedented step of rejecting the poisonous IMF financial package and pegged our Ringgit to the US dollar with a fixed rate.

The 'evilness' of this man knows no bounds apparently. All he hungers for is "absolute power," which sums up, quite frankly, his burning desire and motivation to destroy any country or economy without any hesitation. Is he also one of the detestable ring leaders of the dark cabal that is currently wreaking financial terrorism throughout the world? Read on and judge for yourself.

The article I referenced was posted by John MacHaffie in a blog here. (Emphasis mine.)

Monday, November 29, 2010, John MacHaffe writes …

The Most Evil Man In The World (And it's not George H.W. Bush, he directs Bush)

This needs to be read by everyone in this country, especially members of Congress

The Most Evil Man In The World:
by CBS writer, Steve Kroft:

Some time ago I wrote an article questioning who might be the power behind Barack Hussein Obama. It has to be someone because of his meteoric rise to power, with experience at virtually nothing, with questionable wisdom, and with a mysterious past that has been carefully erased and hidden where no one can check it. The puppet master apparently paid for Obama's education and his travels to Pakistan for some mysterious purpose, and promoted him into Illinois , then national politics.

I once suggested it might be billionaire George Soros. I now believe that to be the case more than ever. George Soros might be the most evil man in the world, with intent to destroy America and every value we have held dear. Obama seems to be in lockstep with Soros' philosophies and simply a tool in Soros' world-changing strategies.

The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the "United States" ~~ George Soros

What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath's lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist world class philosopher, despises the American Way and just loves to do social engineering (change cultures).

Gyargy Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros' father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of Esperanto a language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz's, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s. When Hitler's henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country's Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds. Soros has repeatedly called 1944 "the best year of his life." "70% of Mr. Soros's fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect."

During an interview with "Sixty Minute's" Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his "best year:"

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

SOROS: Yes. That's right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.

After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors. Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper's death in 1994. Two of Popper's most influential teachings concerned "the open society," and Fallibilism. Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. Then again, I could be wrong about that. The "open society" basically refers to a "test and evaluate" approach to social engineering. Regarding "open society" Roy Childs writes, Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper's advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.

In 1956 Soros moved to New York City , where he worked on Wall Street, and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation. Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.

In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for "The American Thinker" she says, "Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England . He broke it on the backs of hard- working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight."

In 1994 Soros crowed in "The New Republic" that "the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire." The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be "one of the greatest social robberies in human history." The "Soros Empire" indeed.

In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia . At the time, Malaysia 's Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, called Soros "a villain, and a moron." Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, "We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people."

The website Greek national Pride reports, "[Soros] was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia , Ukraine and Myanmar [ Burma ]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros' role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality."

France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars.

Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for "illegal market manipulation." Elizabeth Crum writes that "The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros'] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary's economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.

My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach.

But what about America ? Soros told Australia 's national newspaper "The Australian"

"America , as the centre of the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out," he said, adding that the time has come for "a veryserious adjustment" in American's consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about.

Soros: "World financial crisis was" stimulating" and "in a way, the culmination of my life's work."

Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil, in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama's largesse towards Brazil, came shortly after his financial backer George Soros invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras).

Tait Trussel writes, "The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil , but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independance."

A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com. This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world's poor; that justice will be served.

In 1997 Rachel Ehrrenfeld wrote, "Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His "open society" is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of an PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements."

Perhaps the most important of these "whistle blowers" are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book "The Shadow Party" outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which became the Obama Administration.

Discoverthenetworks.org (another good source) writes, "By his ['Soros'] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, and Yugoslavia . When Soros targets a country for "regime change," he begins by creating a shadow government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup."

November 2008 edition of the German magazine "Der Spiegel," in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U.S. ) should do after taking office. "I think we need a large stimulus package …" Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right.

Soros also said that "I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S. needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights."

Although Soros doesn't (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.

Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by 'The Baltimore Chronicle's' Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by "a veritable who's who of former Republican leaders," from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head [and ex-President] George Bush, Sr. In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney's old stomping grounds.

And I must not forget to mention Soros' involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to. In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM.

As Matthew Vadum writes, "The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives." Richard Poe writes, "Soros' private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America 's traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering."

Some of the many NGOs (None Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn.org, the Apollo Alliance , Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America ), La Raza, and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks .org.

Poe continues, "Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia." America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America and his puppet, Barak Obama is leading the way.

Soros was the original funding behind the Global Warming Hoax. For every 10 million Gore makes, Soros makes a billion.

This may explain what has been happening in our country as well as around the world. George Soros may well be The Most Evil Man In The World.

SC boss under 'inside' attacks

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 10:20 AM PST

I came across this 'a kind of a blog' accusing SC boss Tan Sri Zarinah Anwar of committing another big mistake in accepting the registration of PriceWaterhouseCoopers under the AOB on April 1 this year when the amendment to the Securities Commission Act 1993 for the Audit Oversight Board only comes to force on April 15.

The owner(s) of http://zarinahtakesapaycut.blogspot.com also claimed that Zarinah signed the amendment on April 8 while the Second Finance Minister only approved it on April 13, meaning that the registration was not at all valid.

"How on earth can you register a auditor and collect the fees on the 1st of April when the lay only allows it on the 15 of April? It is a fraud and illegal and we in the SC know it, and we know a lot more and we will share it.

"
We are here to ask that Tan Sri Zarinah accepts a pay cut of RM100 every month for letting this big wrong decision take place under her watch We hope Datuk Seri Najib will see that the SC remains an institution that is strong and not open to attack by anyone..."

So, the URL belongs to 'inside people', it seems. I wonder what else will come out as the SC has been under tremendous bloggers attacks over the pass few months.



Women of Substance

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 08:56 AM PST

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 50. I have not hit 50 yet...but am greatly touched that some men do value women over 50! So to all of you out there regardless of your gender or age, may you value your loved ones and friends because each one of us IS special!! *Note that this post is somewhat similar but briefer and less saucy than the other I posted HERE a few days ago.



"As I grow in age, I value women over 50 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 50 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 50 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.

Women over 50 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 50.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 50 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest.. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk or if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 50 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 50, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?' Here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!"

Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

*Special thanks to S.Y.K. from UK who sent this to me!
