Kaum dan budaya (Cina) yang terhina dan durjana

Kaum dan budaya (Cina) yang terhina dan durjana


Kaum dan budaya (Cina) yang terhina dan durjana

"…The Russian people is right. It sees in writers of Russia its only leaders, defenders, and saviours from the darkness of Russian autocracy, orthodoxy, and nationalism. It can forgive a bad book, but not a harmful one."

-Vissarion Belinsky, Letter to Nikolai Gogol, 1847-

Dalam karyanya Black Skin White Masks, Frantz Fanon menceritakan sejarah dan proses bagaimana golongan yang berkulit hitam diperhambakan dan ditindas untuk sekian lama oleh kaum kolonialis Eropah. Tahap pemikiran dan kepercayaan yang dipegang sebegitu merendahkan mereka sehingga – hanya kerana mempunyai warna kulit yang berwarna hitam – tidak dilihat sebagai manusia yang mempunyai hati nurani moral dan perasaan bahkan dipandang sebagai binatang. Kumpulan haiwan yang paling dekat dengan saudara-maranya: kera, gorilla dan monyet.

Bagi Fanon, tindakan ini berpunca daripada pelbagai faktor, dan antaranya adalah akibat daripada cara pandang golongan ini yang memandang hina dan serong terhadap sejarah dan kebudayaan mereka sendiri.

Oleh itu apabila kita terbaca tentang undangan Barisan Nasional Pulau Pinang kepada Psy untuk datang ke Pulau Mutiara bagi mempertontonkan rakyatnya sempena sambutan tahun baru Cina, kita bertanya adakah kita semua disumpahi untuk menghadapi kitaran abadi memperlekehkan perkongsian kebudayaan kita bersama? Bukan cara hidup orang lain, tetapi budaya nasional rakyat tanah air kita sendiri.

Maka apabila pengumuman acara ini dibuat dengan riuh rendahnya dan diheboh-hebohkan melalui  media massa kita sudah dijanjikan dan pasti bahawa apa-apa titisan jiwa dan budaya yang tertinggal telah lenyap sama sekali.

Adakah dengan cara begini, menjemput pelakon sandiwara komersial berpentas, untuk meraikan sejarah dan memori bersama rakyat Malaysia? Melalui perkiraan faedah mata wang, pelancongan dan publisiti?

Ketika ini apabila rakyat massa bertarung di kota-kota konkrit untuk mengerjakan pendapatan supaya mak dan ayah apabila sampai di rumah nanti dapat menyediakan pinggan nasi dan sayur untuk anak-anak kecil yang tunggu di rumah?

Tidakkah si penguasa kecil dan sang penguasa besar di Putrajaya sedar tentang pergelutan hari-hari rakyat terbanyak dan bahaya yang perlu dihadapi setiap hari di jalan raya yang kian sesak dan melemaskan semua yang menggunakkannya?

Bagaimana dengan anak-anak muda yang hutang keliling pinggang perlu membayar hutang PTPTN, menyara keluarga, orang tua mereka, beli rumah dan kereta supaya yang tercinta dapat perolehi taraf hidup yang selesa dan membangun?

Di saat apabila di Eropah pemerintahan-pemerintahan di sana cuba sedaya upaya untuk mengurangkan dan minimakan perbelanjaan yang berlebihan, si penguasa kecil di sini dengan dukungan sang penguasa besar melihat ada perlunya untuk menyambut tahun baru di sini dengan sebegini rupa? Ini ideologi pemikiran yang dipatuhi oleh pemerintahan di sini untuk sekian lama: kalau ada masalah, belanja dan belanja lagi untuk mengembirakan semua. Walaupun pada hari esoknya, hidup kekal terseksa dan diperkosa.

Kita pada hari ini telah hilang segala hala tuju untuk mengangkat budaya dan luahan kebudayaan sebagai alat bagi memperdayakan rakyat massa. Untuk menanam sifat menghayati nilai-nilai kemanusiaan dan martabat manusia. Supaya kita dapat berhenti seketika, dalam pada masa meraikan dan menziarahi teman-teman bumi tercinta ini, bagi merenung dengan ikhlasnya sejenak kepayahan dan penderitaan mereka yang miskin, dipijak dan ditendang sana-sini.

Seperti yang disuarakan dalam Sahabatku oleh Usman Awang, antara petikannya:

Sahabatku,

Suatu bangsa merdeka yang kita impikan

Terasa masih jauh dari kenyataan

Kemarahanku menjadi kepedihan

Bila kita dipisah-pisahkan

Jarak itu semakin berjauhan

Aku dapat gelaran 'bumiputera' dan kau bukan

Percayakah?

Aku dapat pula mendengar detak jantungmu

Detak jantung yang dulu

Kehidupan baru untuk masyarakat baru

Impian suatu bangsa merdeka

Kebenaran dan keadilan yang sama

Sebagaimana pesan nenek moyang:

'Hati kuman sama dicicah

Hati gajah sama dilapah'.

Dan jangan kita lupa bagi mereka yang denyutan masa sudah dihentikan dan terhenti, dan membuat 'tahun baru' tidak bermakna apa-apa lagi: keluarga Sugumaran, keluarga Kugan, keluarga Aminul Rashid, keluarga Sarbaini, keluarga Teoh Beng Hock, dan yang lain-lain lagi.

Selamat Tahun Baru Cina semua.

Najib's enemies within

Posted: 05 Feb 2013 07:36 AM PST

The opposition threat is something we should be worried of. I think they are getting more organised in certain aspects, especially in spinning BN weaknesses, a well-managed cybertroopers team and in getting attention (if not sympathy) over some boiling issues like 'Allah', Lynas and the water crisis in Selangor and Kelantan.

I believe many of our BN politicians are putting up their best show, not only to counter the opposition's onslaught but also in securing the slots as candidates in the upcoming general election.

Of course the usual would be, those who qualify should deserve it.

Me?

Nope, I am not at all worried about the opposition's strength. They have to come up strong in gearing up themselves for the national poll. Furthermore, their leader Anwar Ibrahim is willing to go for broke - either he makes it or retires completely from politics. He already made that promise last year.

My main concern is the people 'within the BN circle', especially some senior government servants. As GE gets closer, they take it for granted that any fresh proposal or a good input by the public should not be attended to.

Why? Since a new regime will be at its helm after the GE - expected between March and June - new policies are not necessary as it will add to their 'already burdensome' duty. A newly set-up government too would mean a new style, new policy and new approach.

I call them the stuck-up and ignorant government servants who are looking forward to the general election by neglecting fresh and better ideas from the public, mainly with regards to improving services of a few sectors.

They refused to accept a good proposal from the public, let alone giving such a proposal a chance for discussions. Those who put forward the proposal will not be given time for presentation. What they will get is a big NO, either from the secretary-general of a ministry, his deputies or other senior officials in charge of the policies.

With high expectation that their ministries would be led by new ministers after the GE, they chose to stay put and wait for the new Cabinet to be sworn in.

What is suppose to be a good governance is now left dangling to rot, with some flip flops and mistakes.

However, it is a common factor that any minister and his sec-gen, deputy sec-gen and other senior officials would not admit any minor error to their work, let alone making public some failures to their policies.

I don't want to single out any minister, sec-gen, ministry or agency but this are the peoples who would contribute to the downfall of PM Datuk Seri Najib's government in the next general election. To them, 'everything was perfect with what they had done and implemented'.

To them, the rakyat should abide by the existing rules and support anything that the government does. Should there be errors or not, they can't complaint.

It is also a usual attitude of the senior civil servants not to admit mistake as it will be translated as their incompetency in carrying out the task given. They also have to cover their boss ass, especially the minister, because as a politician, any adverse impact of the ministry's policy would reflect on the minister.

That is why some officers to the minister have to create lies and 'temberang' about anything, just to please the boss.

It applies well on Umno. When the surface looks good, the actual problem at grassroot level was well-covered up and the reports that reached up to the leadership are mostly lies and fabricated to show that the party is in good order!

Najib is not aware of this. He seems to be all alone up there. The people whom he trusted to bring him the actual news and fact have been dodging him all the while... and this people should get the boot should he remains prime minister after the general election.

Those in-charge of the ministries and agencies do not really go down to the ground to see for themselves as to whether the policy the implement is taking effect and shows good result. What they really care is, once the policy is implemented, it is considered done and achieve target.

Some of them, upon promotion, became complacent and only moves if the minister tells him to move. Even a single para non-policy press statement would have to get approval from the boss, the minister. And by the time the minister approves it two or three days later, the press statement already got insignificant.

PM Najib is not only facing the opposition, he also have the rotten senior government servants as his 'enemies within'. He should be well aware of this threat...

[VIDEO WAJIB TONTON] Sidang DUN K'tan vs TV3 Kes Geran Tanah Di RKT Lebir

Posted: 05 Feb 2013 09:00 AM PST

Umno/BN Cuba Gagalkan MB Agih Geran Kepada Peneroka

GUA MUSANG: Sekumpulan penduduk di Paloh 2 difahamkan dipengaruhi Umno cuba menggagalkan program Kerajaan Negeri Kelantan mengagihkan geran kepada peneroka di RKT Lebir beberapa hari lalu.

Kira-kira 40 penduduk mengadakan demonstrasi di Simpang Paloh 2 dengan mengangkat sepanduk kertas ketika Menteri Besar, Tuan Guru Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat melalui kawasan itu untuk ke RKT Lebir.

Mereka melaungkan kononnya kerajaan negeri merampas tanah rakyat.

Seorang ahli Umno yang mahu dikenali sebagai Pak Leh mendakwa kumpulan penyokong Umno Paloh 2 cuba menggagalkan program penyampaian geran di Lebir.

"Saya juga merima panggilan mlm tadi supaya hadir pada demontrasi tersebut.

"Saya diberitahu mereka mahu gagalkan program penyampaian geran. Tetapi tadi ada peneroka di sini yang pergi," katanya ketika ditemui selepas Majlis Penyampaian Geran Hak Milik Lot Kediaman kepada 84 peneroka.

Penyampaian geran tersebut disempurnakan Menteri Besar, Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat. Hadir sama Penyelia Parlimen Gua Musang, Dr Zulkifli Muhamad, Dun Paloh, Shah Aminudin, Penyelia Dun Nenggiri, Zuki Ibrahim, Penyelia Dun Galas, Abdullah Husin dan Ketua Jajahan Gua Musang, Mat Jusoh Husin.

Program penyampaian geran diteruskan biarpun Umno cuba menggagalkannya .

Malah di majlis itu, 54 orang ahli Umno turut menerima geran.

Turut kelihatan di tempat demontrasi ialah isteri Adun Paloh, Datin Mariah Din.

Adun Paloh Datuk Nozula Mat Diah juga ditemui tidak jauh dari lokasi demonstrasi.

Menteri Besar turut mengakui ada pihak tidak senang dengan program berkenaan.

Katanya, rakyat tanpa mengira politik turut diberi geran hak milik bagi membolehkan mereka memiliki tanah secara sah.

Orang ramai menyifatkan tindakan kumpulan penyokong Umno itu tidak wajar kerana cuba menghalang Menteri Besar mengagihkan geran kepada rakyat. -HD (30/1/13)

For Heaven's Sake, Think Again!

Posted: 05 Feb 2013 05:52 AM PST

I do not read the news at all and only know what's happening if a friend tells me via whatsapp, viber or email. Recently, I was utterly appalled not just at the news that Psy is coming to perform in Penang but also by the reactions of the general public.

Previously, I declared that I will not write on political issues but this evening, what I have to say is nothing political. It has to do with sheer common sense. There are MORE important issues at stake rather than politicising this proposed event.

1. Some said that the event will put Penang in the tourism map.

For heaven's sake, use your brains. Does it make sense that a Malaysian company pays a FOREIGNER $$$ at an event purportedly to celebrate Chinese New Year? In what ways are they promoting Penang?

If there is poor traffic management and this is reported by international news agencies, what sort of impression will potential tourists have of Penang?

2. How can a Korean be engaged for an event that heralds the new Lunar Year?

Why can't the money be used to hire LOCAL artistes? I am sure we have a lot of talent within our boundaries.

Why can't they get stars such as:
  • Michael Wong who hails from Ipoh
  • Fish Leong who hails from Bahau
  • An Niu who hails from Butterworth

3. Don't Malaysians realize that the $$$ used to pay a foreign artiste is actually an invisible import? How many are aware that it means our ringgit is leaving our shores and can impact our balance of payments?

4. In 2008, there were massive traffic jams around the area for hours. This time, I expect things to be worse.

Have the authorities concerned outlined/prepared a blueprint for traffic management?

5. What about safety issues? Will there be enough police and Red Crescent/St John Ambulance personnel on duty to deal with situations that need first aid attention etc?

6. I could not believe it when I read that some asked supporters to wear clothes of a particular colour. Aiyo - we are not kindergarten kids to be commanded what to wear. It is everyone's right to choose whatever coloured clothes we want to wear. Besides, such a call kind of endorses the event.

7. The company sponsoring the event and footing the entertainer's bill has the right to do whatever their hearts desire for the $$$ is from their profits.

However, instead of condemning this company, Malaysians ought to find out what is the company/its connections and then contact the company directly to make special requests rather than ranting publicly and making all kinds of unsupported allegations. We need evidence to support those allegations. And so far, none has surfaced.

8. Any one with the right mind would know that the Han Chiang venue is not a suitable place for the concert. It is illogical that a huge sum of money is spent for a performance by an international star at a venue that has poor accoustics. If they really want to bring in a world class pop star, then hold it at a world class venue - a place that merits such a colossal expenditure and can showcase the prowess of the star.

So why Han Chiang? Why Psy? Phonetically, some Chinese may regard his name in negative terms cos it sound the same as the word for 'sh*t' or quite close to 'death' in Cantonese.

Let's support home grown Malaysian talent during such an auspicious occasion. Let us respect Chinese culture by putting up performances that are related to Chinese and/or Malaysian culture.

What has gangnam got to do with Chinese New Year?

Over to you, readers. Your views are most welcome.


Preschool Closed After Sexual Activity

Posted: 05 Feb 2013 05:09 AM PST

I nearly fell off my seat when Angela told me the following news. I googled for the incident and true enough, she was not joking.

Extract from HERE:


A Carson, Calif., preschool is closing after parents learned of alleged sexual activity between 4- and 5-year-olds, according to an attorney representing the alleged victims.

Some students in the preschool class at the First Lutheran Church of Carson School would engage in oral sex during naptime, in the tunnel slide on the playground and in an outside bathroom, attorney Greg Owen told ABCNews.com.

Kes Gobala vs Saifuddin: Dia Yang Saman Tapi Dia Yang Takut Untuk Hadir Di Mahkamah

Posted: 05 Feb 2013 06:46 AM PST

Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur menetapkan tarikh baru perbicaraan kes saman Ahli Parlimen Padang Serai, N Gobalakrishnan (Gobala) terhadap Setiausaha Agung KEADILAN, Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail berikutan kegagalannya hadir dengan alasan sedang dirawat di hospital.

Hakim Vazeer Alam Mydin Meera menetapkan 25 dan 26 April depan di kamarnya hari ini untuk perbicaraan itu bagi mendengar keterangan Gobala.

Saifuddin yang diwakili peguam William Leong akur dengan keputusan itu meragui sijil sakit yang dikeluarkan hospital swasta yang merawat Gobala membuat semakan bagi mengesahkan beliau terpaksa ditahan di wad.

"Kita ragu surat sakit ini kerana semalam beliau masih sihat dan sempat merasmikan pesta ponggal. Jadi kita mahu tahu betul atau tidak beliau sakit jantung atau dada seperti yang dinyatakan dalam surat tersebut.

"IsyaAllah tarikh baru itu mungkin kerajaan sudah berubah. Kita tunggu sahaja bagaimana seterusnya," kata Setiausah Agung KEADILAN itu di perkarangan mahkamah kepada Keadilan Daily.

Saifuddin pada 10 Mac 2011, mempersoal bagaimana Gobala mampu memiliki RM1.4 juta untuk melangsaikan hutang pembelian tanah di Kelantan.

Katanya, berdasarkan bukti yang diterima, cek pertama adalah cek tunai berjumlah RM700,000 dengan tarikh 12 Januari 2011 beralamat di sebuah bank di Ipoh manakala cek kedua adalah cek yang mempunyai tarikh sah laku sehingga 15 Mac 2011 dengan jumlah yang sama.

Menurut Saifuddin, kedua-dua cek berkenaan bagi menjelaskan bayaran pajakan tanah seluas 40.47 hektar di Lojing, Kelantan di antara syarikat milik Gobala – Embun Megah Sdn Bhd dengan Kumpulan Pertanian Kelantan Berhad.

Gobala mengumumkan keluar KEADILAN dan menjadi Ahli Parlimen Bebas pada 29 Januari 2011 kerana mendakwa kononnya hilang kepercayaan terhadap kepimpinan parti itu yang dianggap gagal menyelesaikan masalah kaum India.

Saifuddin bagaimanapun mengesyaki pengkhianatan beberapa Ahli Parlimen KEADILAN yang bertindak keluar parti adalah atas dorongan habuan lumayan.

Ekoran itu, Gobala mengemukakan saman RM12 juta ke atas Saifuddin kerana mendakwa beliau menerima habuan daripada pihak tertentu untuk keluar dari KEADILAN. -KDMbr>

Banner Nurul Izzah Diturunkan Oleh Balaci UMNO Sempat Dirakam

Posted: 05 Feb 2013 04:36 AM PST


Cerita ajaib | Petang semalam semasa saya memandu di Jalan Maarof menghala ke Damansara saya telah berhenti di lampu isyarat berhampiran Masjid Saidina Abu Bakar As-Siddiq kerana lampu merah. Sementara menanti lampu isyarat bertukar hijau, saya berhasrat mengambil gambar banner-banner yang tergantung di pagar masjid termasuklah banner ucapan Selamat Hari Wilayah dari YB Nurul Izzah Anwar dan banner dari menterinya YB Dato Raja Nong Chik.

Saya berhasrat untuk bercerita pada teman-teman bahawa banner YB Menteri boleh berganding mesra dengan banner YB Nurul Izzah dalam sama-sama menjunjung semangat setiakawan & demokrasi di tanahair tercinta ini. Walaupun saya tahu hampir kesemua banner YB Nurul Izzah di kawasan Parlimen yang dimenanginya, yang turut digantung sederet dengan banner promosi jualan kereta dan banner tawaran kemasukan ke tadika, diturunkan.

Saya merancang untuk memetik segera button pada kamera telefon bimbit sebelum lampu bertukar ke hijau. Rupanya perancangan Allah lagi Maha Hebat. Tidak semena-mena dengan pantasnya datang seorang lelaki bermotorsikal turun dari motorsikalnya terus menuju ke banner YB Nurul Izzah dan menurunkannya! Saya terkedu!

Tidak sempat saya mengambil gambar gandingan banner-banner itu. Saya hanya sempat mengambil gambar lelaki itu dari kejauhan setelah beliau meletakkan banner yang diturunkan itu ke dalam bakul motorsikalnya.

Saya meneruskan perjalanan dengan hati yang geram kepada para pencuri banner yang tidak sabar-sabar menunggu Raya Korban. Banner yang dicuri sebagai tempat hamparan untuk bergelumang bersama daging korban.. -M Fakhrurrazy M Ariff

Banner Kak Izzah diturunkan

Di Jalan Pantai Baharu.


Di Kerinchi.
 
Kalau banner kak izzah dipotong kononnya alasan tak ada permit, barang2 yg ini pula ada permit tak?

Taste Of UMNO Kelantan..

Posted: 05 Feb 2013 02:22 AM PST

A well-known Kelantanese penceramah Ustadz H***d D from Kelantan once said that in Kelantan, our UMNO leaders and all those with positions are filthy2 rich.
Whatever money that BN pumps in to make UMNO Kelantan strong are siphoned and pocketed by those in muscle power.
UMNO Kelantan actually enjoy being an opposition..they like the huge reserves that can be pocketed.
So Kelantan will stay under PAS for as long as these 'dishonesty' persists..that was around 10 years ago..a shocking tale indeed.
Unbelievable..so disappointing..

Hopefully, the scenario today is much better..maybe BN can conquer Kelantan this PRU 13..
Anyway, please check on this writer's observation on the behaviour of some of our Kelantan UMNO members..I have a suspicion that the attitude of Kelantan UMNOnites has not changed much.

But my personal view is inconsequential..who knows, the situation may in reality be okay..and have improved.

Otherwise, BN has not got its investment's worth..the tireless,aggressive efforts and considerable attention of our hardworking PM on Kelantan will be obviously futile as always.

Read this humble blogger's story http://www.ariffinmamat.net/2013/02/my-country-malaysiakelantan-politically.html

p.s.
If UMNO can wrestle Kelantan from PAS this PRU 13..
O what a dream..after all these years..
I believe our UMNO Kelantan must change their mental landscape..if not, we'll lose our battle in Kelantan..again.

My COMMENT>Sometimes a law is just on its face and unjust in its application. For instance, I have been arrested on a charge of parading without a permit. Now, there is nothing wrong in having an ordinance which requires a permit for a parade. But such an ordinance becomes unjust when it is used to maintain segregation and to deny citizens the First-Amendment privilege of peaceful assembly and protest.

I hope you are able to see the distinction I am trying to point out. In no sense do I advocate evading or defying the law, as would the rabid segregationist. That would lead to anarchy. One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty. I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.

Of course, there is nothing new about this kind of civil disobedience. It was evidenced sublimely in the refusal of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego to obey the laws of Nebuchadnezzar, on the ground that a higher moral law was at stake. It was practiced superbly by the early Christians, who were willing to face hungry lions and the excruciating pain of chopping blocks rather than submit to certain unjust laws of the Roman Empire. To a degree, academic freedom is a reality today because Socrates practiced civil disobedience. In our own nation, the Boston Tea Party represented a massive act of civil disobedience.

*************We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was "illegal." *********It was "illegal" to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler's Germany. *********Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers. If today I lived in a Communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country's antireligious laws.Read the rest of his letter here @

The Most Bizarre Suicide

Posted: 04 Feb 2013 07:00 PM PST


At the 1994 annual awards dinner given by the American Association for Forensic Science, AAFS president Don Harper Mills astounded his audience in San Diego with the legal complications of a bizarre death. Here is the story:

On 23 March 1994, the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald Opus and concluded that he died from a shotgun wound to the head. The decedent had jumped from the top of a ten-story building
intending to commit suicide (he left a note indicating his despondency).

As he fell past the ninth floor, his life was interrupted by a shotgun blast through a window, which killed him instantly.

Neither the shooter nor the decedent was aware that a safety net had been erected at the eighth floor level to protect some window washers and that Opus would not have been able to complete his suicide anyway because of this.

Ordinarily, Dr. Mills continued, a person who sets out to commit suicide ultimately succeeds, even though the mechanism might not be what he intended. That Opus was shot on the way to certain death nine stories below probably would not have changed his mode of death from suicide to homicide. But the fact that his
suicidal intent would not have been successful caused the medical examiner to feel that he had a homicide on his hands.

The room on the ninth floor whence the shotgun blast emanated was occupied by and elderly man and his wife. They were arguing and he was threatening her with the shotgun. He was so upset that, when
he pulled the trigger, he completely missed his wife and pellets went through the window striking Opus.

When one intends to kill subject A but kills subject B in the attempt, one is guilty of the murder of subject B.

When confronted with this charge, the old man and his wife were both adamant that neither knew that the shotgun was loaded.

The old man said it was his long standing habit to threaten his wife with the unloaded shotgun. He had no intention to murder her - therefore, the killing of Opus appeared to be an accident.

That is, the gun had been accidentally loaded.

The continuing investigation turned up a witness who saw the old couple's son loading the shotgun approximately six weeks prior to the fatal incident. It transpired that the old lady had cut off her son's financial support and the son, knowing the propensity of his father to use the shotgun threateningly, loaded the gun with the expectation that his father would shoot
his mother.

The case now becomes one of murder on the part of
the son for the death of Ronald Opus.

There was an exquisite twist. Further investigation revealed that the son, one Ronald Opus, had become increasingly despondent over the failure of his attempt to engineer his mother's murder.

This led him to jump off the ten- story building on March 23, only to be killed by a shotgun blast through a ninth story window.

The medical examiner closed the case as a suicide

The Mysterious Driver

Posted: 04 Feb 2013 07:00 PM PST


The Pope had just finished a tour of the East Coast and was taking a limousine to the airport. Having never driven a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while. Well, the chauffeur didn't have much of a choice, so the chauffeur climbs in the back of the limo and the Pope takes the wheel.

The Pope proceeds to hop on Route 95 and starts accelerating to see what the limo could go. Well, he gets to about 90 miles per hour and,WHAM! There are the blue lights of our friendly State Police in his mirror.

He pulls over and the trooper comes to his window. Well, the trooper, seeing who it was, says "just a moment please I need to call in."

The trooper radio's in and asks for the chief. He tells the chief "I've got a REALLY important person pulled over and I need to know what to do."

The chief replies "Who is it, not Ted again? "

The trooper says, "No, even more important."

The chief replies, "It's the Governor, isn't it? "

The trooper replies "No, even more important."

"It isn't the President is it?"

"No, more important," replies the trooper.

"Well, WHO the HECK is it!", screams the chief.

The Lady in the Nursing Home *joke*

Posted: 04 Feb 2013 05:34 PM PST


One evening a family brings their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and leave her, hoping she will be well cared for.

The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.

She seems OK, but after a while she slowly starts to fall over sideways in her chair.

Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up. Again she seems OK, but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side.

The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright. This goes on all morning.

Later the family arrives to see how the old woman is adjusting to her new home.

They ask,"So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?"

"It's pretty nice," she replies. "Except they won't let you fart."

*Posted for laughs. :-)
