Deja Vous Confusion?

Deja Vous Confusion?


Deja Vous Confusion?

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 09:03 AM PDT


The Parliament has yet to be dissolved and many Malaysians like me at the stage where we just want to get it over and done with and move on to the next phase of this nations's development. The fact remains that since the unexpected result of the 2008 election,  more have been fooled and deluded by all the pressies, sweet promises and new melodies that are being sung in various keys and rhythmic tempo till the actual day of reckoning.

It is saddening to note that there are many who have indulged in political forgetfulness. Some may have forgotten what their candidate DID and/or DID NOT DO. Not only do they forget the service record of candidates but also all the challenges or struggles faced in the history of this nation, and how empty promises were never kept.

Tell me, please. In the past few months when leaders talk about the elections, have they ever had the guts to talk about THEIR SERVICE record? Few have done. Whilst some may have done that sincerely, there could be others who have tried to ride on the glory of others and pass these off as their own. And what have they been telling us? The results of their fault-finding mission as to why the other side is NOT good whilst they are the best. Fair? Mature?

The saddening likelihood is that come this election, history is likely to be repeated when people forget the past so much that they will vote blindly or supposedly loyally by voting the party of their choice without considering the quality of the candidate thereby ensuring that the insanity not only persists, but has become endless.

Judging from the past, when the campaign trail gets more exciting, voters can become irrational in their judgement when the speeches/statements heat up and gets scandalous, spicy and thrilling. In the process, as a result of disinformation, in a bid to assuage the pain, many may subconsciously remember no more the pain, misery and disappointment suffered under their ADUN or MP.

Instead, time is wasted when opposing camps argue over who is right and who is wrong with little regard of the people's needs except when making promises that are not likely to be kept!

What is sorely needed is an honest to goodness assessment of the suitability of each candidate and leave it to the people to judge and to confirm whether or not he is a political serial liar, exaggerator or just a charismatic speaker or whether indeed he has ALL the qualities of an elected representative.

Is it rational for voters to vote a second time for their representative who has failed to deliver what has been promised in the previous election and if history shows he/she has been nothing but a political liar? A particular candidate who has failed to deliver the package of promises promised in the last election must be written off. Also, those who have served for MANY terms. They need to give way to young blood to be at the helm while they retire gracefully for a good rest.

I am so fed up to see HOW SELFISH are some politicians who do not regard the needs of the people in different constituencies but treat the whole election process as a lottery whereby they DECIDE to stand for election in DIFFERENT constituencies because of party rationale/agenda and reasons that are NOT related to the people's needs. Shouldn't each candidate ASSESS the situation in each constituency and evaluate for themselves if indeed they are the best candidate for that area instead of flying from north to south in an effort to ensure victory? Selfishness or patriotism?

The sad truth is that many media reports may not present an accurate depiction of reality and instead, help or distract people to forget their past experiences and to accept half-baked statements or promises that were never delivered in the previous or coming election. Why? Because one can be easily beguiled if we do not critically think about situations, speeches and quality of candidates.They may have even one too many chances for the representative to serve the people and not just look at the dollars and cents over here.

How I wish there will come a time when voters are savvy to the means and content of communication and be immovable and never persuaded by sweet talk and whatever meaningless handouts that beggars will not even accept.

I guess we are all tired. Tired of lies...games...broken promises...and the worst deal is that many others will succumb to the same pattern. What a crying shame!

I wonder how many of us are aware of the job description of elected representatives and whether we have realistic expectations of what they need to do to serve the people and whether they only vote for candidates who can work for their interests or that of their families and neighbours.

The other dangerous trend is how die-hard supporters of a candidate (who may also be key personnel in the election campaign) unconsciously puts themselves in the centre thinking that the elected representative owes them a debt which can only be settled when they ask the candidate for a favour next time. Hence, leaders should concentrate on IMPROVING THEIR PARTY and CANDIDATE instead of being selfish and trying to achieve their hidden agenda.

As the election draws close at hand, let us really do our homework and check up on the party and the candidate so that only the best candidate with the most suitable personality, experience and aspiration is elected and who is truly willing to serve the community is elected. Let us guard ourselves from becoming victims of propaganda, disinformation or misinformation. Think, analyze, reflect, digest and really assess election manifestos, speeches, election paraphernalia and do not simply believe what the content of what you read, watch or listen.

Whatever the case, don't get fooled again by either the party, person, propaganda, presents etc but seriously gauge the QUALITY of the candidate and their sincerity and willingness to serve the PEOPLE and not their masters!!!


[BERGAMBAR] Polis Mengaku Ikut ARAHAN Tahan Treler Jelajah PAS

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 11:04 AM PDT


Tahan treler jelajah PAS 'arahan' pihak tertentu?

Gopeng: Akibat ditahan pihak berkuasa, program jelajah treler berkebajikan PAS yang dijadual berlangsung di Gopeng tertangguh lebih sejam malah terpaksa diubah dari Seksyen 18 ke tapak pasar malam Kampung Pengkalan Pegoh.

Timbalan Yang Dipertua PAS Gopeng, Radzi Zainon berkata, pihaknya kesal dengan penahanan dan pemeriksaan treler itu yang diyakini dibuat 'atas arahan' pihak tertentu bagi mengganggu program yang dianjur hari ini.

"Kita lihat bila Barisan Nasional (BN) buat program, bukan sahaja tiada halangan malah anggota keselamatan turut memberi kerjasama.

"Tetapi apabila Pakatan Rakyat, bermacam-macam halangan diwujudkan dengan tujuan untuk menakut-nakutkan rakyat agar tidak hadir ke tempat program tersebut,"
jelasnya kepada Harakahdaily.

Beliau yang kecewa dengan tindakan penahanan treler itu berkata, semua pihak sewajarnya bertindak profesional dalam dalam menangani perbezaan politik kerana Malaysia adalah sebuah negara yang demokrasi.

"Tindakan polis yang mengikut arahan pihak tertentu menyebabkan program kita terjejas lebih dari sejam.

"Bukan itu sahaja kita terpaksa mengubah lokasi ke tempat yang lain, dan kita khuatir jika meneruskan program di lokasi yang asal sudah pasti pelbagai perkara yang tidak diingini berlaku," katanya ketika ditemui di program jelajah di Pengkalan Pegoh.

Tengah hari tadi, lebih 30 anggota polis, Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) dan Polis Cawangan Khas mengepung treler Negara Berkebajikan PAS di Gopeng saja keluar dari lebuhraya.

Konvoi jelajah Negara Berkebajikan PAS ditahan oleh pihak polis ketika dalam perjalanan ke tapak program di Pengkalan Pegoh.

Pihak polis menahan konvoi jelajah di Taman Pinji Perdana setelah mengejar konvoi tersebut yang melalui sekatan yang dilakukan oleh pihak berkuasa.

Ketika ditanya tentang penahanan tersebut sehingga pihak polis terpaksa mengejar treler jelajah itu, mereka hanya memberi jawapan 'menjalankan tugas mengikut arahan dikeluarkan'.

Lebih kurang lima buah kereta peronda, empat buah motosikal berkuasa tinggi berada di tempat di mana konvoi tersebut ditahan.

Walaupun treler tersebut ditahan oleh pihak polis, namun pemeriksaan dilakukan oleh pihak Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ).

Konvoi jelajah yang ditahan hampir sejam itu dilepaskan setelah pihak JPJ membuat pemeriksaan dan mengambil segala maklumat dari rombongan konvoi.

Peguam PAS, Haji Asmuni Awi antara yang berunding dengan mereka bagi membolehkan perjalanan ke destinasi diteruskan.

Semalam, treler tersebut turut dihalang memasuki kawasan ceramah di Bandar Kamunting.

Difahamkan pihak polis membuat tiga sekatan jalan raya di laluan masuk ke tempat program tersebut mulai jam 6 petang lagi -HD









Ulasan GB

Jika bas Jelajah Rakyat PKR dibaling telur, cat merah dan batu oleh puak UMNO, treler berkebajikan PAS pula diganggu oleh Polis dan JPJ yang diperkudakan UMNO BN.

Polis tak serik-serik lagi mengikut telunjuk UMNO BN walaupun dah mendapat impak negatif di Lahad Datu dengan terkorbannya beberapa anggota keselamatan.

GB sudah berulangkali menyeru dan meminta polis supaya menjalankan tugas secara rofesyenal, tanpa pilih kasih atau diskriminasi dan bukan mengikut arahan UMNO BN.

Hukum kebenaran dan keadilan akan berjalan dimana apabila polis gagal menjalankan tuasnya secara adil dan saksama, maka polis perlu menanggng risiko yang besar setiap ketidak-adilan dan setiap kerja yang dilakukan secara pilih kasih akan menyebabkan integirit dan kredibiliti polis tercemar.

Set lunch: 糖黐豆 Sweet Bean @ SS2 Petaling Jaya

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 09:00 AM PDT

Sweet Bean has UNIFI. ;)

Had lunch here for the first time. Decided to go 'economical' - hence, ordered the set lunch.
 This set lunch had a main course that came with jelly and a choice of iced lemon tea or 'tong sui'.
I chose the peanut 'tong sui' aka 'fa sang wu' instead of the iced lemon tea. Why?
Reason being I was greedy I thought to myself, 'Rice alone won't be enough to fill my stomach.'
After eating the rice and consuming the 'fa sang wu', I was extremely full.
Fried rice was okay - normal.

For a much more 'interesting' review, go the link below:

Menteri-Menteri Bebal Ini Bangga Bergambar Dengan Seorang "Penjenayah"

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 08:14 AM PDT


Polis sahkan Papagomo disabit kesalahan rasuah

Polis hari ini mengesahkan identiti Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris yang dirujuk sebagai Papagomo dalam saman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim minggu lalu, sebagai bekas anggota yang pernah disabit kesalahan rasuah.

Mengikut kenyataan media pada paparan facebook hari ini, Azri pernah bertugas di Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Ampang antara 1 julai 2002 hingga 30 Novemnber 2004 sebagai seorang konstabel, sebelum ditangkap.

Azri kemudian dihadapkan ke Mahkamah Sesyen Ampang Jaya pada 31 Oktober atas kesalahan jenayah yang tidak dinyata dalam kenyataan berkenaan.

Rekod Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) sebelum ini, menyatakan Azri sabit kesalahan meminta suapan RM1,000 dari seorang lelaki pada 29 Nov 2004 untuk tidak mengambil tindakan undang-undang atas kesalahan memiliki jarum suntikan bagi menagih dadah.

Dalam kenyataan yang ditandatangani Pengarah Pengurusan PDRM, Datuk Mortadza Nazarene, Azri dikenakan prosiding tatatertib yang menyebabkan beliau dibuang kerja berkuat kuasa 6 September lalu.

Kandungan kenyataan itu seolah-olah polis tidak mahu dikait dengan aktiviti blogger pro-Umno yang kerap dikait dengan paparan lucah khususnya memfitnah Ketua Umum KEADILAN.

Kenyataan berkenaan juga menerangkan kedudukan Azri sebagai pengundi pos secara 'panjang lebar' selepas penamatan perkhidmatan sebagai anggota polis.

Pada 21 Mac lalu, Anwar memfail saman RM100 juta terhadap Azri di Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur berikutan perbuatannya menyebar video seks palsu yang terbit dalam blog Papagomo 16 Mac lalu.



Ulasan GB

Enggang sama enggang, pipit sama pipit - "seorang penjenayah saja yang akan bersama penjenayah yang lain"..

Menteri-menteri termasuk Najib tersenyum riang seolah-olah berbangga dapat bergambar dengan penjenayah yang bernama papagomo itu. Kerana papagomo banyak membantu mereka dan UMNO dalam kerja-kerja menabur fitnah terhadap Anwar dan pakatan Rakyat.

Apatah lagi hampir kesemua menteri-menteri berkenaan adalah terdiri mereka yang buta IT. Jadi dilihatnya "kepakaran" papagomo menggunakan IT menghasilkan tulisan dan video fitnah bagi memburukkan pembangkang sebagai satu aset berguna untuk mereka.

Hukum kebenaran dan keadilan tetap berjalan. Papagomo PASTI hancur binasa walaupun dikelilingi menteri dan pendana menteri. Hanya menunggu masa dan ketikanya kecuali beliau bertaubat nasuha.

Asian Muslim Action Network (AMAN): Statement on the recent violence in Myanmar

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 03:20 AM PDT

Asian Muslim Action Network (AMAN)

AMAN is deeply saddened and concerned with the current and ongoing violence in Myanmar.

There are many reports of killing and the destruction of properties and places of worship, particularly in the Meikhtila Township, majority of whom are Muslims.  AMAN would like to categorically condemn such acts.

We extend our deepest condolences to the families who have lost family members, friends and property in the violence. We would like to also extend our solidarity with those affected by this violence.

AMAN demands that the Myanmar Government bring those responsible for this tragedy to justice immediately. We also insist that the government take action against the perpetrators of these heinous acts of violence, particularly those who are involved in hate speeches against the minority Muslims.

In recent times, two waves of riots against Rohingya in Rakhine State resulted in many people losing their lives and property. Myanmar, which has one of the worst records of human rights abuses in the world, also has one of the most oppressed and persecuted communities in the world; the Rohingya.

Recent violence  seems to correlate with the country's  long due democratization  and healing process between and among  various ethnic  communities towards creating opportunities for accelerated process of development efforts in cooperation with international communities.

In Meikhtila, reports state that approximately 130 Muslims and 30 Buddhists have lost their lives due to fresh violence. Fifteen Mosques, five Islamic Schools and buildings have been damaged which left  many families  homeless.

Reports say that although it is more controlled in Meikthila, the atrocities have spread to nearby towns and villages throughout the region.

AMAN demands that the Myanmar Government not only stops the ongoing violence but prevents future tension between majority Buddhists and minority Muslims by stopping the hate speeches that are currently being spread by groups such as the "969 gang."

The Myanmar Government must allow all its IDPs to resettle with adequate security provisions.

We also urge the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) and UN bodies to call upon the Myanmar Government to stop such violence immediately.

AMAN urges the Myanmar Government to compensate the victims of violence adequately regardless of ethnicity or religion, to rebuild their homes and livelihood community.

We finally appeal to all civil society organizations, both within and outside of Myanmar, to act by strengthening mutual cooperation and dialogue in order to stop and prevent such happenings in the future.


16 combat aircraft to boost our security

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 03:19 AM PDT

Finally it comes. We will buy 16 combat aircraft from 5 shortlisted makers, thus adding strength to our defense.

There were plans to do so in the past, especially to replace the aging Russia-made machines but as the government gives heavy emphasis in combating poverty and unemployment - not forgetting the massive development plan for the people - it was delayed.


However, the announcement by Defense Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today was a boost to national security. The opposition should not take it as 'politically motivated' as the government took the Suluks intrusion in Lahad Datu, Sabah as a legitimate reason for the purchase.

While Asean countries such as Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand are also spending on their defense, we should not be kept at bay.
LANGKAWI, Malaysia, March 28 (Reuters) - Malaysia has
shortlisted five manufacturers as it seeks to buy 18 combat
aircraft by 2015 to replace its ageing fleet of Russian-made
MIG-29s, the defence minister said on Thursday.

The choice was between the Britain-backed Eurofighter
Typhoon (pic), Sweden's SAAB JAS-39 Gripen, France's
Dassault Aviation Rafale, Boeing's F/A 18E/F
Super Hornet and Russia's Sukhoi Su-30, Zahid Hamidi told
Reuters.

"We've made the shortlist," Zahid said on the sidelines of
the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition.
"We don't know the cost yet."
A good move....although it was a little too late!

Gagal Bubar Parlimen, Maruah Najib Tercampak Ke Tong Najis

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 05:24 AM PDT


MB NS perlu dapat restu Yang DiPertuan Besar

SEREMBAN: PAS Negeri Sembilan menasihatkan Menteri Besar Negeri Sembilan, Mohamad Hasan agar mendapatkan restu daripada Yang DiPertuan Besar Tuanku Muhriz ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir untuk meneruskan tugas beliau sebagai Menteri Besar di bawah 'caretaker government' atau kerajaan sementara.

"Mengikut Undang-Undang Tubuh Kerajaan Negeri dan Akta Interpretasi 1984 dan 1967, meneruskan peranan sebagai Menteri Besar di bawah 'caretaker government' mestilah mendapat restu Yang DiPertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan.

Kedudukan Mohamad sebagai Menteri Besar menjadi tanda tanya apabila Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Negeri Sembilan telah terbubar secara otomatik hari ini.

"Kita bukan mahu Mohamad tinggalkan jawatan sebagai Menteri Besar sepenuhnya, tetapi kita tidak mahu rakyat keliru dengan situasi yang berlaku di Negeri Sembilan. Tambahan pula sekiranya Menteri Besar dan Exco masih lagi berlagak dengan kuasa Menteri Besar dan Exco sebelum ini.

"Kerana fungsi bagi kerajaan sementara adalah terhad. Tidak boleh membuat sebarang keputusan kritikal seperti meluluskan tanah, projek kerajaan atau menyampaikan bantuan kerajaan.

"Maka cara yang terbaik untuk elakkan kekeliruan adalah dengan (Perdana Menteri) Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak membubar parlimen segera," kata Ketua Penerangan PAS Negeri Sembilan, Ustaz Norazman Mohamad.

Ketua Pemuda PAS Negeri Sembilan, Mohd Khairil Anuar Wafa pula dalam nada sinis mengucapkan jutaan terima kasih dan merakamkan penghargaan kepada Mohamad di atas jasa Mohamad sebagai Menteri Besar terakhir Barisan Nasional.

"Saya mengucapkan jutaan terima kasih di atas jasa beliau dan ingin merakamkan penghargaan di atas sumbangan beliau sebagai Menteri Besar Barisan Nasional yang terakhir.

"Semoga Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU-13) akan membuka lebaran baru dan Kerajaan Negeri Pakatan Rakyat yang baru akan terbentuk," ujar Mohd Khairil.

Sementara itu PAS Negeri Sembilan juga mengumumkan akan bertanding di 12 kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) pada PRU-13 ini.

Menurut Setiausaha Perhubungan PAS Negeri Sembilan, Mohamad Hassan Tamby; PAS telah menyerahkan kerusi DUN Sri Menanti dan Gemas yang ditandingi oleh parti itu pada PRU-12, kepada Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

"Sementara PKR pula telah menyerahkan kerusi DUN Labu kepada PAS. Pada PRU-13 nanti PKR akan bertanding 13 kerusi DUN, PAS 12 kerusi dan DAP kekal 11 kerusi DUN.

"Peruntukkan kerusi Parlimen juga kekal seperti PRU-12 iaitu PAS akan bertanding di Jelebu, Jempol dan Tampin, sementara PKR pula di Telok Kemang, Rembau dan Kuala Pilah. DAP pula akan bertanding di Seremban dan Rasah," jelas Mohamad Hasan.

Apabila ditanya tentang senarai calon PAS pada PRU-13 nanti, Mohamad Hasan berkata beliau tidak boleh umumkan senarai calon sekarang kerana telah dipersetujui oleh Majlis Pakatan Rakyat Negeri Sembilan bahawa semua calon PRU-13 akan diumumkan serentak oleh PAS, PKR dan DAP di bawah entiti Pakatan Rakyat. -FMT


Kerajaan Negeri Sembilan haram selepas 26 Mac – Dr Aziz Bari


Kerajaan Negeri Sembilan akan menjadi kerajaan haram jika ia terus beroperasi selepas 26 Mac, kata pakar perlembagaan, Profesor Dr Abdul Aziz Bari.

Mengikut Undang-undang Tubuh Kerajaan Negeri, DUN Negeri Sembilan akan bubar dengan sendiri pada tarikh tersebut jika tiada pembubaran DUN dilakukan sebelum itu.

"Sekiranya kerajaan Negeri Sembilan terus beroperasi selepas Selasa, 26 Mac ini, kita boleh katakan yang ia haram. Ini kerana pada tarikh itu DUN Negeri Sembilan bubar secara automatik.

"Dalam sistem demokrasi berparlimen – atau Westminster – hayat kerajaan bergantung kepada dewan. Bila dewan bubar kerajaan pun ikut bubar.

"Sebuah kerajaan sementara (caretaker government) perlu dilantik oleh Yam Tuan Besar. Menteri Besar (MB) yang ada boleh dilantik sebagai MB sementara," katanya kepada Keadilan Daily.

Untuk rekod, sidang pertama Dewan Rakyat adalah pada 28 April 2008, manakala sidang DUN pertama pula bermula dengan Negeri Sembilan iaitu pada 25 Mac dan diikuti DUN-DUN lain pada bulan April 2008.

Menurut Aziz, adalah tidak bermoral bagi kerajaan negeri atau pusat terus berkuasa kerana ia telah melebihi tarikh 8 Mac, iaitu melepasi tempoh mandat lima tahun yang diberikan sejak pilihan raya umum (PRU) 2008.

"Kalau dulu taklah menonjol sangat sebab dewan (Dewan Rakyat dan DUN) dibubar sebelum 5 tahun. Sekurang-kurangnya adalah hujah moral untuk tidak melantik kerajaan sementara secara formal, "Tetapi sekarang ini lain, tarikh 8 Mac sudah jauh ditinggalkan. Tempat berpijak yang ada hanyalah tarikh dewan bersidang buat kali pertama selepas PRU yang lalu. Kalau tarikh yang itu pun sudah luput, apalagi alasan untuk kerajaan ini berada di situ dan menggunakan kemudahan serta wang rakyat," katanya.

Justeru katanya, kerajaan sementara yang dilantik di Negeri Sembilan selepas 26 Mac perlu melaksanakan prinsip tersebut dengan menjalankan fungsi terhad sebagai sebuah kerajaan.

Ia katanya, termasuk tidak membuat sebarang keputusan kritikal seperti meluluskan tanah, projek kerajaan atau menyampaikan bantuan kerajaan.

"Kerajaan sementara ini sekadar buat kerja rutin dan tak boleh buat inisiatif penting. Guna kemudahan awam lagilah tak boleh. Naikkan gaji pun menimbulkan persoalan," ujarnya.

Menyifatkan tempoh yang ada pada kerajaan ibarat 'simpanan petrol' dalam tangki minyak sebuah kereta, Aziz menggesa parlimen segera dibubar agar mandat baru diberikan oleh rakyat.

"Tarikh 26 Mac itu – atau 28 April dalam konteks Dewan Rakyat – ibarat petrol reserve.

"Maknanya kalau minyak habis, kereta kena berhenti dan isi minyak. Isi minyak di sini bermaksud bubar dewan dan adakan pilihan raya umum bagi mendapatkan mandat atau autoriti baru dari rakyat," kata Aziz.


Ulasan GB

Banyak implikasi negatif akibat daripada kegagalan Najib untuk membubarkan parlimen setelah genap 5 tahun pilihanraya umum ke 12 di adakan pada 8 Mac 2008.

Apabila DUN terbubar dengan sendirinya seperti apa yang berlaku ke atas DUN Negeri Sembila, Najib seperti tidak menghormati kuasa Raja, Sultan, Yang Dipertuan besar dan Yang Dipertua Negeri yang mempunyai kuasa, di bawah Perlembagaan untuk membubarkan DUN negeri masing-masing.

Masih ingatkah kita di dalam peristiwa krisis Perak di mana tatkala rakyat Perak ingin DUN Perak dibubarkan ekoran rampasan kuasa UMNO BN terhadap kerajaan negeri tersebut? Sultan perak telah tidak memperkenankan pembubaran DUN, mengesahkan bahawa kuasa Sultan / Raja / Yang Dipertuan Besar dan Yang Dipertua Negeri amat perlu untuk pembubaran DUN.

Tetapi apabila DUN terbubar dengan sendirinya bererti kuasa mereka lansung sudah tidak dihormati. Siapa yang menyebabkan keadaan begitu berlaku? Jawabnya PM yang penakut untuk membubarkan parlimen!

Selain daripada itu impak yang ditinggal amat besar. Kini Negeri Sembilan negeri pertama tiada lagi YB-YB dan para exco di negeri itu. Kerana tempoh YB-YB dan exco telah tamat. Begitunya MBnya. Gaji dan elaun mereka terhenti secara automatik.

Memang pun "Caretaker Government" mengambil-alih dan MB boleh meneruskan peranan sebagai Menteri Besar di bawah 'caretaker government' itu, tetapi mestilah mendapat restu Sultan / Raja / Yang Dipertuan Besar dan Yang Dipertua Negeri masing-masing dan jumlah serta struktur kerajaan di dalam Caretaker government ini tidak sama malah kuasa mereka juga amat terhad.

Maruah Najib kini tercampak ke tong najis. Penakut yang tiada taranya dengan memberikan alasan-alasan dangkal sedangkan apa yang sebenarnya berlaku ialah hendak mempastikan perlaksanaan program penipuannya berjalan sebelum pilihanraya dipanggil.

Di segi yang lain pula, dengan hukum kebenaran dan keadilan, apa yang nyata, seseorang itu sebenarnya diberikan kesempatan untuk menggunakan sehabis-habis peluang untuk memerintah sehingga ke akhirnya kerana itulah tanda-tanda riwayat pemerintahannya sudah pun berada di penghujung jalan seolah-olah tiada esok lagi bagi UMNO BN....

In Okkan, there have been sermons arranged by the 969 sect, and people are worried of the day that will end the sermons, 29th March. Letters of threat have been received which says that Muslim villages will be set on fire.

M-Media talked to a refugee who has fled Zigone, Pegu (Bago) division, due to spreading religious persecution in Myanmar.

"Muslims including those whose homes were destroyed in Zigone have fled their homes to nearby villages where temporary camps have been opened.

There is information spreading in Zigone that the villages that have temporary camps will also be attacked. Buddhist friends from Zigone called to inform us. About 22 soldiers from Inn Ma are here to protect us.

Zigone township funeral service just came to give us some food and water. About 4/5 of Muslim residents are still in the village, which is a Buddhist majority one. Local Buddhist residents are also protecting us. What about Muslims? What will Muslim organizations do? Violence in the western part of Pegu division is the worst. Everyone responsible should do something to help. Otherwise, we will have more problems. Please help so that riots don't occur in other areas."

To
President
The Republic of Union of Myanmar

Subject: Asking to protect Myanmar Muslims' lives and properties due to currently insecure situation

1. At the present time, there have been no securities for Myanmar Muslims' lives and properties, mosques and religious schools increasingly. Now the situation becomes worrying for Muslims even in Yangon.

2. Those terrorist attacks include big crimes such as arsons and massacres and so on in which offenders can be stopped by killing according to the law of defense.
However, the neglected situation has happened that responsible authorities have not taken effective action timely to criminals who dare to offend crimes openly in front of them.

3. It is learned that such massacres and loss of religious building and properties are due to weakness and omission of administrative authorities to provide protection and take action effectively.

4. That is why, this Islamic Organization strongly believed that peace and tranquility of the country as well as protection for Muslims' lives and properties, and religious buildings would be given by quick and effective action taken to above mentioned events. Moreover, it is enthusiastically asked to implement promptly the statement (7/2013) of the spokesperson group of Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

အခုျဖစ္ေနတဲ့ျပသနာေတြမွာ အင္အားႀကီးျပီး စံနစ္တက် ဖြဲ ့စည္းထားတဲ့ အဖြဲ ့အစည္း ခပ္ႀကီးႀကီးတစ္ခုေနာက္ခံျပဳေပးမထားဘူး ဆိုတာကို ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ လက္ခံေပးႀကမွာလား။ ယံုႀကည္ေပးႀကမွာလား။

ျပသနာျဖစ္လာပံုေတြကို ေလ့လာသံုးသပ္ႀကည့္ႀကပါ။ ျမန္တယ္ ၊ အင္အားပါတယ္ ၊ အကြက္ေစ့တယ္၊ထိေရာက္မႈအားေကာင္းလြန္းေနတယ္ ၊ အရွိန္အဟုန္နဲ ့ အဖ်က္စြမ္းအားႀကီးပါတယ္။ ထိုးစစ္က ျမန္ဆန္ထိေရာက္သလို ၊ ခြာစစ္က သပ္ရပ္စံနစ္က်ပါတယ္။ ခြာစစ္လမ္းက ေျဖာင့္ေနတဲ့အျပင္ ပံုဖ်က္လည္းေတာ္ေနႀကျပန္ပါတယ္။
ေစ်းသည္နဲ ့ ေစ်း၀ယ္/ ေရာင္း နွစ္ဦးသား ျဖစ္လိုက္တဲ့ ျပသနာက ေန ့မကူးခင္ လူအုပ္ႀကီးပါလာပါတယ္တဲ့။ညတြင္းခ်င္းပဲ မီးေတြရႈိ ့တာ ျမိဳ ့က သုသန္တစျပင္လိုျဖစ္သြားပါသတဲ့။ နည္းနည္းေလး စဥ္းစားႀကည့္ႀကရေအာင္ပါ။ ဘာျဖစ္လို ့ အဲဒီေလာက္ျမန္ရတာပါလဲ။ ဘယ္ကလူေတြက အဲဒီေလာက္မ်ားမ်ားႀကီး ခ်က္ခ်င္းႀကီး၀င္ပါလာခဲ့ႀကတာပါလဲ။ လူအုပ္ကႀကီးလြန္းလို ့ အင္အားနည္းပါးတဲ့ ရဲေတြက မတားရဲပါဘူးတဲ့။ ရုတ္တရက္ေတာ့ ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ လက္ခံေပးခ်င္ေပမယ့္ တစ္ကယ္ေတာ့ အဲဒါက ယုတၱိဆန္ရဲ ့လား။ ျပန္စဥ္းစားႀကည့္ႀကရမွာပါ။ ျပသနာက ဒီေလာက္ျမန္ျမန္ဆန္ဆန္ႀကီး အရွိန္အဟုန္ ျမင့္လာခဲ့ပါတယ္ဆိုရင္ေတာင္ ထိန္းမနိုင္ သိမ္းမရႀကီးထြားမလာေသးတဲ့ လူအနည္းငယ္ကို ရဲက ဘာလို ့ လႊတ္ေပးထားခဲ့ပါသလဲ။

ဟိုးအတိတ္အေ၀းကို ျပန္မေျပာပါနဲ ့ဦး။ ေလာေလာလတ္လတ္ လက္ပန္းေတာင္းေတာင္ ၊ မအူပင္ အေရးေတြမွာ ျပည္သူ ့ရဲေတြအအုပ္အထိန္းေကာင္းရံုမကပဲ လက္ေတာင္လြန္သြားခဲ့ႀကေသးတာပါ။ အဲဒီလိုဆို အားလံုးက ၀ိုင္းအျပစ္တင္မွာ စိုးလို ့ပါ ဆိုရင္လည္း ျပသနာႀကီးလာနိုင္ရာကေန ၊ အလြန္အကြ်ံ မီးဟုန္းဟုန္းေတာက္တဲ့မီးေလာင္ျပင္ေတြ ၊ စစ္ေျမျပင္တစ္ခုစာ အေလာင္းေတြ ပံုလာတဲ့အထိေတာ့ နွိမ္နင္းဖို ့ အမိန္ ့မရတာပါလား။အမိန္ ့မရရင္ တစ္ကယ္ပဲ ဘာမွ မလုပ္နိုင္တဲ့ အဖြဲ ့အစည္း ့့အမွန္တစ္ကယ္ပါလား။ အဲဒါဆိုရင္ လက္ပန္းေတာင္းေတာင္နဲ ့မအူပင္မွာက ဘယ္သူအမိန္ ့ေပးလို ့ပါလဲ။ အမိန္ ့ေပးသူကို ေဖာ္ေပးပါ။ တစ္ကယ္က ျမန္မာနိုင္ငံကရဲေတြဟာျပသနာအနံ ့နဲ ့ ဘယ္လို ဖမ္းဆီးထိန္းသိမ္းရတယ္ ဆိုတာကို ေလ့က်င့္ ကြ်မ္းက်င္ျပီးသား ပုဂိၢဳလ္ေတြပါ

မိထၳီလာ NLD မြတ္ေဒါင္းေတြ အုပ္စိုးေနျပီလို ့ စကားသံေတြ အရင္လြင့္လာပါတယ္။ on line မွာ မိထၳီလာဆိုတဲ့နမိတ္ေတြ မျဖစ္ခင္က ႀကိဳျပတဲ့သူက ျပေနခဲ့ႀကတယ္။ ၉၆၉ လႈပ္ရွားမႈက ရည္ရြယ္ခ်က္ေကာင္းတယ္ ဆိုရင္ေတာင္ရန္စေစာ္ကားသလို ၊ အႀကမ္းဖက္သလို၊ ဇြတ္အမိန့္ေပးသလိုေတြ မိထၳီလာမွာ လုပ္လာခဲ့တယ္။ လက္ပန္းေတာင္းမွာ ေဒၚစုအကြဲပဲလို ့ ေမွ်ာ္လင့္ထားႀကတယ္။ မိထၳီလာအေရးျဖစ္တာနဲ ့ ဦး၀ီရသူ ေရာက္လာတယ္။ ေပါ့ေစလို လို ့လား၊ ေဘးျဖစ္ေစတဲ့ေဆးလား ။ ဘယ္သူမွမသိနိုင္ေပမယ့္ လုပ္သင့္မလုပ္သင့္ တြက္ႀကည့္တဲ့အခါ အစၥလမ္ေတြက ဦး၀ီရသူကို ခ်စ္ေနတာ မဟုတ္ပါဘူး။ သူ ့ရဲ ့တရားေတြေႀကာင့္ပဲ လန္ ့ေနခဲ့ႀကတာ ၊ေႀကာက္ေနႀကတာက အေသအခ်ာပါ။ ကယ္ဖို ့သြားတယ္ဆိုရင္ေတာင္ ေႀကာက္ကန္ကန္ျပီး အလြဲတုန္ ့ျပန္ နိုင္ေနတဲ့အေျခအေနမွာ စဥ္းစားစရာပါ။

အဲဒီလိုနဲ ့ မိထၳီလာဟာ ေသြးပ်က္သြားခဲ့ပါတယ္။ မိထၳီလာကိုယ္တိုင္ ေသြးပ်က္သြားခဲ့သလို ၊ မိထၳီလာကပဲ လူအမ်ားကိုပါ ျပန္ျပီးေတာ့ ေသြးပ်က္လာေစခဲ့ပါတယ္။

ေခတ္အဆက္ဆက္က သူတို ့အတြက္ အႏၱရာယ္ရွိတယ္လို ့ ယူဆရင္ အနံ ့သဲ့သဲ့ေလးရရံုနဲ ့ေတာင္ အျမစ္ပါမက်န္္ေအာင္ ေျမလွန္ရွင္းထုတ္တတ္ျမဲျဖစ္တဲ့ အစိုးရရဲ ့ စစ္ ၊ ရဲ ေထာက္လွမ္းေရးကြန္ယက္အသီးသီး ဟာ ဘယ္တုန္းကမွ မညံ ့ခဲ့တဲ့အျပင္ႀကက္သီးထစရာေကာင္းေအာင္ ေတာ္တယ္ဆိုတာ နိုင္ငံေရးအက်ဥ္းသားေတြက သက္ေသေကာင္းပါ။ တုတ္တုတ္လႈပ္လို ့ေတာင္မွ မရခဲ့တာပါ။ အစိုးရမတူလို ့လို ့ မေျပာပါနဲ ့။ လူမေျပာင္း စံနစ္ ေျပာင္းေယာင္ေယာင္ အစိုးရဆိုတာ လူတိုင္းအသိပါ။

မိထၳီလာျငိမ္ေတာ့ အဖ်က္သမားလို ့ ယူဆရပါတယ္ဆိုတဲ့ သာမန္ ခိုးဆိုးနိႈက္ေတြပဲ အမိျပပါတယ္။ ခြာစစ္က စံနစ္တက် ျပန္ဆုတ္ သြားႀကပါတယ္။ ေနာက္ျမိဳ ့ေတြဆီကို စံနစ္တက်ပဲ ေရြ ့လ်ားႀကပါတယ္။ စံနစ္တက် ဖ်က္ဆီးျပႀကျပန္ပါတယ္။ စံနစ္တက်ပဲ ၀ါဒဆက္ျဖန္ ့ပါတယ္။ စံနစ္တက်ပဲ အေႀကာက္တရားရယ္ ၊ သံသယရယ္ ကို သပ္လွ်ိဳထည့္ေပးႀကျပန္ပါတယ္။ တိုင္းျပည္ဖ်က္ဖို ့ အေကာင္းဆံုးလက္နက္က ေကာလဟာလရယ္ ၊ အေႀကာက္တရားရယ္ ၊ သံသယရယ္ကို လူအုပ္ႀကားကို ထုတ္လႊင့္ေပးျခင္းပါ။ ေပါ့ေပါ့ေလးလို ့ ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ထင္ေနရင္ မွားႀကေတာ့မွာပါ။ ဒီေန ့၁၄၄ ထုတ္လိုက္တဲ့ျမိဳ ့ေတြကို ့ႀကည့္ရင္ ပ်ံ ့နႈန္းဘယ္ေလာက္္ျမန္ေအာင္ သူတို ့လႈပ္ရွားနိုင္တယ္ဆိုတာ သေဘာေပါက္ႀကရပါလိမ့္မယ္။

ဒီပဲရင္းလူသတ္ပြဲရဲ ့ ဖန္တီးရွင္လက္ရာေတြ ျဖစ္ဖို ့မ်ားပါတယ္။ ဦးေအာင္ေသာင္းရဲ ့ ေမြးရပ္နယ္က ေပ်ာက္သြားႀကတယ္ဆိုတဲ့
လူမိုက္ေတြရဲ ့အေႀကာင္း၊ ျမန္မာျပည္က ဦးေတဇထက္ ခ်မ္းသာတယ္လို ့ အဆိုရွိတဲ့ ဦးေအာင္ေသာင္းသား ျပည္ေအာင္ရဲ ့ ရူးသြပ္မႈနဲ ့စည္းစိမ္ေနာက္ခံအင္အား ၊ စာဖတ္ေနသူႀကီး အယံုႀကည္ဆံုး အားအကိုးဆံုးျဖစ္တဲ့ သက္ေတာ္ရွည္အမတ္ ဦးေအာင္ေသာင္း၊ ဖိုးလပည့္ရဲ ့ သတင္းထြက္ေပၚလာမႈအေပၚ ေဒါသအမ်က္တေခ်ာင္းေခ်ာင္း ခံစားသြားခဲ့ရတဲ့ အနားယူ စာဖတ္ေနတဲ့သူႀကီးရဲ ့ အတၱမာနကို ထိပါးသြားရမႈ တို ့က အမ်ားႀကီး ထည့္စဥ္းစားစရာပါ။

ဦးေရႊမန္းဟာ နအဖထဲမွာ တတိယပုဂၢိဳလ္အျဖစ္ ေနရာေပးျခင္းနဲ ့ နွစ္အေတာ္ႀကာ ေျမွာက္စားခံခဲ့ရတာပါ။ အနာဂတ္ရဲ ့သမၼတလို ့ တပ္တြင္းမွာ သေဘာေပါက္ နားလည္ထားခဲ့ႀကတာပါ။
ကာကြယ္ေရးဦးစီးခ်ဳပ္အျဖစ္ ေမွ်ာ္မွန္ခိုင္းထားခဲ့တဲ့သူရျမင့္ေအာင္ကို ဇြတ္နားေစခဲ့တာ ၊ လႊတ္ေတာ္မွာ အစိုးရဖြဲ ့တဲ့အခါႀကေတာ့မွ သမၼတေပးမယ္ဆိုတဲ့ ဦးေရႊမန္းက လႊတ္ေတာ္ ဥကၠဌပဲ ျဖစ္သြားခဲ့ရတာေတြက အာဏာရွင္ႀကီးရဲ ့ အနီးကပ္ လ်ပ္တစ္ျပက္ ရိုက္ခ်က္ပါ။ အဲဒီေန ့က ဦးေရႊမန္းမိန္းမ ေဒၚခင္ေလးသက္ သူ ့အိမ္မွာ လာသမွ်လူကို ဦးသန္းေရႊမေကာင္းေႀကာင္း ေအာ္ဟစ္ဆဲဆို ငိုေႀကြးက်ိန္ဆဲေနခဲ့တယ္ဆိုတာ သိျမင္ႀကားႀကသူေတြ မနည္းရွိခဲ့တာပါ။

အဲဒီအခ်က္က အေရးမႀကီးဘူးလို ့ယူဆလို ့မျဖစ္ပါဘူး။ သမၼတရဲ ့ အုပ္ခ်ဳပ္ေရးအာဏာ ၊ တရားဥပေဒရဲ ့တရားစီရင္ေရးအာဏာ စိန္အေခၚခံရျပီး ဥပေဒျပဳေရးအာဏာကသာ က်န္အာဏာနွစ္ရပ္ကို ပီပီျပင္ျပင္ လႊမ္းမိုးသြားလိုက္နိုင္ေနျပီ ဆိုတာ ဒီေန ့နိုင္ငံ့အေရးကို စိတ္၀င္တစား၇ွိတဲ့သူတိုင္း ျမင္ေတြ ့လက္ခံထားေနရတဲ့ အေျခအေနပါ။ ဥပေဒခံုရံုးကိစၥ ၊ စာရင္းစစ္ခ်ဳပ္ ကိစၥေတြသာမကပါဘူး။ အခုေနာက္ဆံုး မိထၳီလာ ျပသနာမွာ နိုင္ငံရဲ ့တရား၀င္သမၼတက ၊ အတိုက္အခံ လႊတ္ေတာ္အမတ္နဲ
သာမက ျပည္သူ ့လႊတ္ေတာ္ဥကၠဌနဲ ့ပါ ပူးတြဲ သေဘာတူညီခ်က္ ထုတ္ျပန္ျပလိုက္ရပါတယ္။ ဒီအေရးအခင္းေတြမႀကာခင္က ဦးခင္ညြန္ ့ကို ဦးေရႊမန္းက တရား၀င္ ပြဲထုတ္ျပလာခဲ့ပါတယ္။

Eleven မီဒီယာဟာ ဦးေရႊမန္းသားရဲ ့ ရွယ္ယာ အမ်ားစုပါတာ.. ေဇကမၻာဦးခင္ေရႊနဲ ့ ဦးခင္ညြန္ ့ဟာ ဗိုလ္ခ်ဳပ္တင့္ေဆြရဲ စံနစ္တက် ျပဳစုပ်ိဳးေထာင္မႈေအာက္က ရည္မွန္းခ်က္တူညီတဲ့ ဂိုဏ္းတူေသြးေသာက္ ညီအကို ေတြ ျဖစ္ေနခဲ့တာ… ဦးခင္ေရႊဟာ ဦးေရႊမန္းရဲ ့ ခမည္းခမက္ ျဖစ္ေနခဲ့တာ.. တိုးနိုင္မန္းဟာ စည္းစိမ္ဥစၥာသာမက အနာဂတ္ရဲ ့ အုပ္ခ်ဳပ္ေရးအာဏာအထိပါ ေမွ်ာ္မွန္းထားတာ …ေတြဟာ ဆက္စပ္ႀကည့္တဲ့အခါ ေႀကာက္စရာ ေကာင္းေနတဲ့ ေပးထားခ်က္ေတြအျဖစ္ ရွိေနခဲ့ႀကပါတယ္။

သမၼတႀကီးဟာ အရုပ္ပဲ ၊ ရုပ္ေသးပဲ ၊ ႀကိဳးဆြဲခံေနရတဲ့သူပဲဆိုတာ ဒီေန ့အထိ ျဖစ္ပ်က္ေနသမွ် တိုင္းျပည္အခင္းအက်င္းေတြကိုႀကည့္ရင္ သိသာေနခဲ့တာပါ။ ဦးေရႊမန္းဟာ သိပ္ေႀကာက္စရာ ေကာင္းတဲ့သူပါ ။ ေသြးေအးပါတယ္။ စိတ္ရွည္ပါတယ္။ အႀကံႀကီးပါတယ္။ အကြက္ေစ့ပါတယ္။ လုပ္ရဲပါတယ္။

ဦးေရႊမန္းအနည္းငယ္ လန္ ့ေနတဲ့အရာက တပ္ခ်ဳပ္ႀကီးပါ။ ကာခ်ဳပ္မင္းေအာင္လိႈင္ပါ။ အခုအခ်ိန္ထိေတာ့ တပ္ခ်ဳပ္ဟာဦးေရႊမန္းကို ခါးသီးပါတယ္။ မနွစ္ျမိဳ ့ပါဘူး။ အဲဒီအေႀကာင္းကိုလည္း ဖံုးကြယ္မထားပဲ တပ္တြင္းေတြ ့ဆံုပြဲေတြမွာ အလ်ဥ္းသင့္သလို ထုတ္ေျပာေလ့ရွိပါတယ္။ ဦးေရႊမန္းရဲ ့ မဲဆႏၵနယ္က တပ္ခ်ဳပ္ရဲ ့ ပိုင္နက္ဧရိယာအတြင္းမွာ ရွိေနျပီး လိုအပ္ခဲ့ရင္ လႊတ္ေတာ္ကိုယ္စားလည္အျဖစ္က ျဖဳတ္ခ်ပစ္လိုက္ဖို ့ မဲလက္မွတ္ေတြကို အဆင္သင့္ စုေဆာင္းထားရွိျပီးျပီ ဆိုတာကိုပါ ဥိးေရႊမန္းကိုပါ သိရွိေစခဲ့သူပါ။ အဲဒါေႀကာင့္လည္း ဦးေရႊမန္းဟာ တပ္မေတာ္ ဘတ္ဂ်က္အပါအ၀င္ တစ္ခ်ိဳ ့ကိစၥေတြမွာ တပ္နဲ ့ထိပ္တိုက္မေတြ ့ေတာ့ပဲ လိုက္ေလ်ာေပးခဲ့သလို ၊ ဦးသန္းေရႊ အႀကိဳက္သေဘာေတြ ့နိုင္တာေတြကို လုပ္ေပးနိုင္ေအာင္လို ့ အသည္းအသန္ ႀကိဳးစားလာခဲ့တာ ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။

အဲဒါေႀကာင့္ သမၼတဟာလည္း လက္ရွိရုပ္ေသးအာဏာကိုေတာင္ တည္ျမဲဖို ့ ကာခ်ဳပ္ကို အားကိုးေနရတဲ့သူ ျဖစ္လို ့လာပါေတာ့တယ္။ အဲဒါေႀကာင့္ အခုျဖစ္ပ်က္ေနတဲ့ နိုင္ငံအ၀ွမ္းက မျငိမ္မသက္မႈေတြက အတြင္းမွာ နက္ရိႈင္းႀကီးမားတဲ့ ရန္သူရွိေနပါတယ္။ ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ ေမ််ာ္မွန္းနိုင္တာထက္ ႀကီးမားတဲ့ ဆင္ကြက္ေတြ ရွိေနပါတယ္။ သာမာန္ ဘာသာေရး အဓိကရုန္း ၊ လူမ်ိဳးေရး အဓိကရုန္း မဟုတ္ပါဘူး။

ဒီမိုကေရစီ အေငြ ့အသက္ကေလး နည္းနည္းပါးပါးရလာေအာင္ ပန္းခင္းတဲ့လမ္းေတြကို ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ ျဖတ္သမ္းလာခဲ့ႀကရတာမဟုတ္ပါဘူး။ ေသြးေတြ ၊ မ်က္ရည္ေတြ ၊ အသက္ေတြ ၊ ဘ၀ေတြ နဲ ့ ဆင္းရဲမႈအေထြေထြကို ရင္းလာခဲ့ႀကရတာပါ။ဒီေလာက္ရင္းထားခဲ့ျပီးမွေတာ့ ဒီလိုလြယ္လြယ္နဲ ့ သူတစ္ပါးကို ဖ်က္ဆီးခြင့္ေပးလိုက္လို ့မျဖစ္ပါဘူး။ မူဆလင္ေတြေရာ၊ဗုဒၶဘာသာေတြေရာ ရဲ ့ ဘံုရန္သူက စစ္အာဏာရွင္ေတြပါ။ အတူတူတိုက္ျပီး အတူတူပဲ ရင္စည္းခံလာခဲ့ႀကရတာပါ။ ခံခဲ့ရတဲ့သူအခ်င္းခ်င္း သခင္အားရေအာင္ ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ တိုက္ခိုက္ေပးႀကမလား။ အတူတူမျပီးဆံုးေသးတဲ့ စစ္အာဏာရွင္ကို ဆက္တိုက္ႀကမလား ဆိုတာကို ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ ေရြးခ်ယ္ႀကရပါလိမ့္မယ္။ ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ေတြ ခြပ္ေကာင္းေကာင္းနဲ ့ ခြပ္ေနလိုက္ႀကတာ ၊ ယာလည္းညက္ေစ၊ ႀကက္လည္း ပန္းေစ ျဖစ္တဲ့အခါမွ အဆင္သင့္ ရိုက္သတ္မယ့္သူက အဆင္သင့္ပါ ။

ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ဟာ တန္ခိုးရွင္လို အရာေတြကို အားကိုးေမွ်ာ္လင့္ေနတာထက္ ကိုယ့္ရဲ ့အသိညဏ္ေရခ်ိန္ကို တိုးျမွင့္ႀကည့္ျပီးသတိႀကီးႀကီးနဲ ့ ကိုယ့္ဘ၀ေတြကိုယ္ ကာကြယ္ႀကမွ ျဖစ္ေတာ့မယ့္ အေျခအေနကို ေရာက္ေနပါျပီ။ ကြ်န္ေတာ္ ေျပာခဲ့ပါတယ္။သူတို ့ဟာ အာဏာအတြက္ ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့ကို ၊ ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့တိုင္းျပည္ကို ဘာမဆို လုပ္ရက္နိုင္တဲ့ အာဏာရူးႀကီးေတြသာ ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။ အရာရာကို ကြ်န္ေတာ္တို ့သတိနဲ ့ဆင္ျခင္မွသာ ရပါလိမ့္မယ္။ ။

Mudslinging and Misinformation in Political Campaigns

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 12:46 AM PDT

I don't know about you  but I am VERY tired of waiting for the next election. Please cut short our ordeal of waiting, speculating, postponing holidays etc and hold the elections asap. I'm fed up of the mudslinging and the misinformation given through many forms of media to make opponents look incompetent, immoral or useless not forgetting worn-out plots (especially sex videos) and over-used scripts. The recycling of sex video attacks is evidence of the state of neurons in the minds of some who are prime candidates of the competition for Air-Head of the Year. Don't they have any other thing to do apart from insulting our intelligence? Sighs...

It is about time responsible leaders exhort us to vote for the character of a candidate based on their campaign manifesto, aspirations,  ideas and service record. To that end, each of us must take responsibility and do our homework by undertaking research to find out the background and worthiness of the candidates without being influenced by any other kind of political propaganda. Then only can we rightly vote for the best candidate.

At the rate we are being fed on a staple diet of disinformation and misinformation, whither Malaysia?

According to the team of psychological scientists working on the study, led by Stephan Lewandowsky of the University of Western Australia, the main reason that people are more likely to believe false information (for example, that climate change is a hoax) is because it actually takes less brain power to believe a statement is false than to accept it as truth. Finding the truth takes time and effort that people often don't care enough to spend on particular issues that aren't of immediate concern.

A few excerpts from the report:

The main reason that misinformation is sticky, according to the researchers, is that rejecting information actually requires cognitive effort. Weighing the plausibility and the source of a message is cognitively more difficult than simply accepting that the message is true – it requires additional motivational and cognitive resources. If the topic isn't very important to you or you have other things on your mind, misinformation is more likely to take hold. 
And when we do take the time to thoughtfully evaluate incoming information, there are only a few features that we are likely to pay attention to: Does the information fit with other things I believe in? Does it make a coherent story with what I already know? Does it come from a credible source? Do others believe it? 
Misinformation is especially sticky when it conforms to our preexisting political, religious, or social point of view. Because of this, ideology and personal worldviews can be especially difficult obstacles to overcome. 
Even worse, efforts to retract misinformation often backfire, paradoxically amplifying the effect of the erroneous belief. CLICK HERE for more.

Time carried an article here which discusses the same research and why misinformation sticks and corrections can backfire. 

Sora Sing's The Upside of Gossip: Social and Psychological Benefits discusses how engaging in behind-the-back talk actually had meaningful social benefits. It lowered gossipers' stress, prevented exploitation and promoted more generous behavior.


This site also reported something interesting:

A new study about media misinformation and media users' ignorance is only the latest wakeup call for anyone who worries that the American press has gone badly astray. From the summary of "Misinformation and the 2010 Election" comes this bottom line:


  • The public is thoroughly cynical about political campaign advertising.
  • Much of the public is misinformed about major issues.
  • Fox News viewers are especially prone to believing things that are not true.


The report, from the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, won't surprise anyone who's been paying attention to national affairs and the media. We have an information crisis. Influence peddlers and opinion launderers can now spend unlimited amounts of money, much of it raised from anonymous sources, to push political issues and candidates. A system that has absolutely no accountability is almost guaranteed to become a sewer, and this one certainly has.

Meanwhile, "news" outlets are becoming not just advocates but outright partisans in the worst sense of the term. They treat policy as war, and in wars the truth comes second to winning.

In some respects, the survey is heartening. Nine in 10 voters believed they'd seen ads that were misleading or false, and more than half of the voters thought such ads were a frequent occurrence — and that the misinformation was accelerating. Why is this good news? Because the more skeptical people become about political ads, the more likely they are to disbelieve all political ads. It's the only rational approach at this point, given our political system's unwillingness to address the poison it spews, and I hope that by 2012 the public will have a universal belief that any political advertisement they see is probably a lie. MORE HERE.

The Washington Post  says that misinformation is the norm at political conventions and discusses how "by its very nature, that means downplaying unpleasant facts, highlighting the positive and knocking down the opposing team."

So, what then should we do? Read carefully and cautiously. Think, analyze and then only accept it if you are fully convinced it is the truth.

Check out my post on The Politics of Misinformation.

When writing this post, I realized that so many types of governments have this problem. Then, why do even more succumb to both disinformation and misinformation???

In closing, allow me to quote from THIS BLOG:

Nothing affects the lives of average citizens than the pervasive, endemic, and widespread cronyism that has infected cities and states across the entire country, again, driven by the ability of corporatist cartels to buy off politicians with special favors, campaign contributions, lucrative jobs, and many times, old-fashioned bribery and influence peddling. 
Nothing is more damaging to society than the existence of a two-tiered legal system, where average citizens are subjected to increasingly punishing and draconian laws, while the rich and powerful get pass or a slap on the wrist. 
And finally, there are the issues related to our disappearing constitutional rights, the widespread expansion of a total-information-awareness surveillance security/police state, and again, a lot of it pushed by nefarious corporate interests, acting behind close doors, hidden from public scrutiny. 
Something that should be very concerning to progressives is the trend on the so-called liberal media, which has now become obsessed with reporting on every single "outrage" committed by Republicans and the right wing.  The reporting mainly serves to inflame emotions of the "liberal" viewers, but really have very little effect on addressing the real issues we should be confronting. CLICK HERE for more.

If there is any reason why the situation is so bleak in this land, it is largely due to the pathetic standards of education. Whoever it was that made all the wrong decisions effectively destroyed our human resources, the pool of leaders, thinkers and citizens who could together develop Malaysia.

Alas, with the slow death of the thinking mind and the manner in which we are losing our international or even regional competitiveness, I dread to think of the kind of messages and information that we may get in the future. Just take a look at how some politicians respond to citizens who express their concerns about mega projects. CLICK HERE to read a letter written by an old friend whom I have not seen for many years. Is it wrong to question when it appears that ome decisions seem to have been made without public consultation or EIA and then the public are confused about subsequent statements?

If you do have time, please read Lies, Damn Lies…and What We Believe Anyway by Jeff Cobb where he dargues that fundamentally, we need to place more emphasize than ever on developing and practicing good learning habits – like critical thinking and reflection – that prevent misinformation from making inroads in the first place.



As the report suggests, once the truth gets twisted, straightening it back out is no easy matter.

Anita Moorjani: Dying to be me

Posted: 27 Mar 2013 09:24 PM PDT



I am listening to this now... just watching off and on - and though I didn't think it would be, it is good. And interesting story of a woman brought back from the brink of death.

To be honest, I didn't want to watch it.  I looked at it lying in the e-mail from a dear friend, and in my head I said: Oh no, a cancer thingy. Must I...?

But, because it was sent by someone I love, and respect; and because she is not about fluff and rubbish and oh-you-must-find-god-and-be-saved-before-you-die, I decided that I'd would. Watch it, I mean.

Now, I'm glad I did. It wasn't what I thought it would be. And I love her message. And I love her sense of who she is and her radiating smile and happiness. And her love for her husband who makes meaning in her life.

Led by the interviewer, she goes back and forth in the vid, and all of it was not for me. Like heaven, for instance. I am not interested in whether she saw heaven or not. I think heaven is a state of mind, and if it is - for me, a big IF - it is nothing like the books proclaim: with angels and harps and idiot cherubs in diapers. I'm pretty sure I'm right about that!

But, I was interested in her experience of consciousness when in her 30-hour coma, and that she could feel her husband willing her to return to them; hear her mum crying; hear the doctor telling them that her organs were failing - and do I remember it right... that he said that outside her room?

I remember my dad's last days were spent in a coma. Could he hear us? DID he hear us around him? How were we to know, I remember wondering. I do remember that I respected the sense of his still-being-there. I remember playing him  John Denver, and sitting with him and singing along -  because that is what he liked: music, and us singing.

But I like her message of 'live life without fear'. Her life could be mine - minus the cancer, the coma, and the fact that she's a big-time author! Hahahah! This need to be good, to not let anyone down, of needing to succeed. That's me. Especially when I was still at home. Then, I got married and Chuan helped me a bit with that, but there was still a lot of stress and fear in me. The driving need to do, do, do stuff and get somewhere . . . .

For me, it has been growing older and older that has been freeing. My hysterectomy was the start, for some reason. In 2001, I had it, and my life changed ... the raging and mixed-up hormones had started the process of this freedom I felt, and the hysterectomy sealed my fate, I think. ( Hysterectomy is a bad-word these days, and even then, it was something that was a last resort, and of questions and why-did-you-let-them-do-it all the time. At the time, it was a decision we talked about, and made, and it was the right one. For me.)

And then, I turned 50 in five years, and I was ready for this new me: Freedom from it all. How I looked, what I did, what people thought - I found I no longer gave an effing damn. That is why I have always said that turning 50 was freeing - but it is a process, and there is no way you are going to wake up on your fiftieth birthday and have the shackles just fall away. So, yah, it was a process, and bit by bit, I got there.

And that is where I am now. My art/painting happened like two years+ ago. And it happened at the right time, for me. It couldn't have happened any earlier - because if it did, I'd not be where I am now with it. For sure! The old me - the before 50 me - would not even have taken up a brush and dipped it in paint - because she would have been afraid that people would laugh, that it would look stupid, that the colours would be all wrong... endless reasons for me to not even try.

For me, EVERY effing thing I did, I needed to excel in. To be the best. To be an expert and way-up-there in the field. And, to a certain extent, I was. Because I was blessed with a good brain (god or DNA, I have no idea) .

But, when I know longer worried of what people would think, I was in the right place to let Donna Dewberry 
'speak' to me on the You Tube vid a friend sent - and I let her convince me that I too could paint like she did! The old Pat would have done what she'd always done: watch the video and let the video itself be the entertainment for her! Like her exercise DVDs and her dance DVDs... hahahaha! Instead of being 'instruction' they'd have been just another thing to watch for fun! 

So, yah, this was a good thing for me to watch. It validates how I think about life now, and how I just want to do what I want to do, and to hell with everyone who doesn't like it, or like me. WHATeva!

Pengakuan "Bunuh Mahathir", Dongeng Untuk Tutup Kes Pemberian IC

Posted: 28 Mar 2013 02:35 AM PDT


SU Agung: Dakwaan ahli Pas pernah cuba bunuh Mahathir mengarut

SHAH ALAM - Setiausaha Agung Pas, Datuk Mustafa Ali hari ini menempelak cubaan pihak-pihak tertentu mengaitkan Pas dengan pengakuan bekas ahli seumur hidup parti itu, Zainon Ismail (gambar) yang mengaku pernah merancang untuk membunuh bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Menyifatkan cubaan Zainon dan beberapa media membangkitkan semula isu 30 tahun lalu itu kerana sudah menjadi "alat Umno", beliau bagaimanapun meminta polis segera menyiasat kerana isu bunuh bukan perkara main-main.

"Ini 'rubbish'. Patut polis siasat dia (Zainon). Dia mengaku dia hendak bunuh (Dr) Mahathir. Pengakuan hendak bunuh orang ini berat," ujar Mustafa kepada Sinar Harian Online hari ini.

Bernama hari ini memetik Pengerusinya, Datuk Abdul Rahman Sulaiman sebagai berkata, agensi itu pernah melaporkan tentang kumpulan ekstremis Pas yang diwujudkan untuk membunuh Dr Mahathir pada 1988.

Menurut Rahman, laporan khas bertarikh 11 September 1984 nukilan wartawan Bernama itu diperoleh daripada sumber risikan agensi berita itu sendiri.

"Bernama dapat mengesan ancaman terhadap Dr Mahathir itu lebih awal daripada pembunuhan yang dirancang ingin dilakukan pada 1988," katanya.

Laporan khas pada 11 September itu juga mendakwa seorang daripada pemimpin Pas Kedah dikatakan pernah memberikan senarai lima tokoh Umno yang harus dibunuh demi menegakkan hukum Islam di negara ini.

Zainon yang merupakan penulis buku 'Kafirkah Aku?' pada Isnin lalu, dilaporkan berhasrat menemui Dr Mahathir untuk meminta maaf kerana merancang membunuh bekas perdana menteri itu.

"Sudah jadi alat Umno boleh kata apa sahajalah. Bila Umno suruh kata apa pun, mereka (Abdul Rahman dan Zainon) ini akan kata," bidas Mustafa lagi.

Dr Mahathir, bekas Presiden Umno, menjadi perdana menteri dari 1981 hingga 2003. -SH

Ulasan GB

Apa yang dapat dilihat isu "bunuh Mahathir" ini hanyalah rekaan - jika benar sepatutnya pihak yang mengaku iaitu Zainon Ismail (AC Afghan) itulah yang perlu disiasat kerana tindakan beliau itu adalah tindakan peribadi bukan tindakan parti.

Kedua, hakikat yang sebenar, di kalangan UMNOlah berlaku bunuh-membunuh. Kes Mokhtar Hashim dan Datuk Taha adalah bukti yang nyata di mana pimpinan UMNO sanggup berbunuhan demi kuasa.

Ketiga, pemimpin PAS yang sebenarnya yang sering menerima sasaran pembunuhan seperti apa yang berlaku kepada Allahyarham Prof Zulkiflee Muhammad dan Ust ibrahim Libya.

Justeru itu berita mengenai cubaan bunuh Mahathir ini hanya satu helah untuk mengalihkan pandangan rakyat tentang kes yang terbongkar mutakhir ini mengenai pemberian IC oleh mantan Perdana Menteri tersebut yang telah menyebabkan kemarahan rakyat Sabah sendiri.


Diwujudkan cerita yang bukan-bukan kononnya ada cubaan untuk bunuh Mahathir maka diupahnya sesiapa yang boleh buat pengakuan bagi memperkuatkan fitnah itu.

Tetapi kebenaran itu tetap kebenaran dan ia akan terserlah juga akhirnya. Fitnah dan penipuan tidak mampu untuk menandingi kebenaran dan keadilan. Yakinlah!

Manila is no longer a good friend

Posted: 27 Mar 2013 09:51 PM PDT

The new address reads: Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, The Philippines.

This is the directive given by the Foreign Office in Manila to all Pinoys when addressing Sabah in all correspondence, official or not. No more 'Sabah, Malaysia'.


The government of President Aquino is now supporting self-proclaimed Sulu sultan Jamalul Kiram in his claim on Sabah. Indirectly, they also support the intrusion by the Suluks in Lahad Datu.

So, it is clear that Malacanang wants Sabah and didn't recognise UN recognition that the state belongs to Malaysia.

Manila is also forgetting that Indonesia will not allow that to happen as it shares the land border with Sabah and Sarawak. If Manila puts a claim on Sabah, Jakarta too (I believe) has more rights to do so but the Indonesians have accepted the fact that Sabah is Malaysia.

What the Philippines do could spark a war in Southeast Asia!
MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) reminded government agencies yesterday of a government directive not to refer to Sabah as part of Malaysia. 
DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez said Malacañang issued Memorandum Circular 162 dated Aug. 20, 2008 entitled "Guidelines on Matters Pertaining to North Borneo (SABAH)" to government departments with regard to any act or statement expressing or implying, directly or indirectly, any recognition of a foreign state's sovereignty over Sabah, a Philippine territory. 
Hernandez clarified the circular, issued by then Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita by authority of then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, after it was raised in a discussion at a meeting of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) on Monday.
"I understand the subject of whether or not to refer to Sabah as being part of Malaysia was mentioned in that meeting," Hernandez said. 
The Philippines has always maintained historical and legal rights over Sabah.
The circular was issued because of the need for guidelines with regard to activities, acts or statements in relation to Sabah for the protection of rights.
