    I am disappointed in all Malaysian for voting for the unholy alliance cost the market also contest to this with a lost RM30 billion incap value,i am not in support of the goverment nor the opposition but changing for one monkey to another does change things.Take the true story depicted in the picture homeless to Harvard and persuade of Happiness and the Carrissa project.An impression we can relate from the pan to fire.The people can’t think for there own self with educate knowledge on their selves are more stupied.I tried 10 years ago and the recent 2 years ago to assist for the community crime project,call Lim Kit Siang on his mobile but he can’t be bother because i am not Chinese,neither Malay nor Indian and on the hand another moron PAS ,so even you voted for the unholy alliance it does change things.Take Kelantan the youth has no jobs,garbage ever were,water taste like dead rat so if they can’t fullfull the simplist of needs then can they change your situation for the better?.Further more he owns petroleum,gold and tobacco companies.The Chinese on the power play agenda they want to control and benefit their self that what they want dominate world .That why the West,US,New Zealand,Australia and Europe on the 19 century put the exclusion act on the Chinese immigrate?.Why not another Asian races? If you still don’t believe that Bruce Lee wife was caucasian and was not allowed to participate the funeral process because she admitted the family did allow her because she was not Chinese and go to any Chinese stores they will always tend to their own first even you were first because they give rat ass about you.My point is the opposition Chinese did start the racial riots in 1969,so went you play fire you get burn.I live comfortable without any assitances from no one and using common sence and not bucking to the China perspective trend.I follow my own sets rules and being an indivualist. Search in Google for the unholy alliance .I have assisted in a few.The link below:http://www.gnmagazine.org/issues/gn72/worldnewstrends72.htm.What i am saying is well documented facts and not fabricated slant reports.Sam.

    Mar 11, 2008 A New Democratic Era In Malaysia- originally appearing at http://www.asiatimesonline.comBy Ioannis GatsiounisKUALA LUMPUR – The Malaysian government’s authoritarian instincts were finally checked by democracy at Saturday’s highly anticipated general elections, where the long-ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) government suffered one of its worst poll results in its 50-year history of uninterrupted rule.The BN won a mere 51% of the popular vote, down significantly from the 64% it notched at the 2004 polls, securing only a simple majority rather than the two-thirds of parliamentary seats it had sought. When the dust settled, opposition parties, which rode a wave of popular discontent about government corruption and neglect, won 82 of 222 parliamentary seats, 37% compared with the 9% previously held, and wrested control of four states – Kelantan Perak, Kedah, Penang and Selangor – while bolstering their hold on the northeastern state of Kelantan.The new parliamentary equation will effectively curb the BN’s ability to amend the constitution, including over issues related to citizens’ rights and the role of religion. The opposition’s strong performance came despite allegations of BN vote-rigging, stiff restrictions on political expression and assembly, and a pro-government bias in the state-influenced print and broadcast media. At around 2 am on Sunday, Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi and his deputy Najib Razak appeared dazed before a blitz of camera flashes, with Abdullah meekly announcing, “We’ve lost, we’ve lost.”The main opposition parties, including the multi-racial Keadilan, the People’s Justice Party (PKR), the Democratic Action Party (DAP), and the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) all exceeded expectations at the polls. Malaysian voters had until now tolerated corruption and authoritarianism among its leaders in exchange for relative social and economic stability.On Monday, Malaysian stocks fell the most in a decade, with the Kuala Lumpur Composite Index dropping 135.60, or 11%, to 1,160.59 at 4:15 pm local time after an hour-long trading suspension ended. The suspension followed the index falling by the 10% limit. Brokers said there was concern that the government’s public spending program might be stalled.Over the weekend, voters apparently sent the message that they now want a more sophisticated approach to nation-building and governance. “The people have expressed in no uncertain terms that they want accountability, transparency, and the rule of law,” said Anwar Ibrahim, de facto leader of the opposition People’s Justice Party (PKR).A swing away from the BN was widely expected among Indian and Chinese voters, who have felt increasingly marginalized by a long-standing affirmative action program known as the New Economic Policy (NEP), which benefits the majority Muslim Malays over minority Chinese and Indians, and the more assertive role Islam has been given during Abdullah’s term.The Chinese-majority state of Penang fell to the opposition Democratic Action Party (DAP) after 36 years of BN rule and several BN Indian leaders, including long-time cabinet member Samy Vellu, lost their seats. Less anticipated, however, was the large deflection of Muslim Malay voters to the opposition camp. The United Malays National Organization (UMNO), which leads the BN coalition, has long fashioned itself as the protector of ethnic Malay interests.It had until now maintained political support by instilling fears, reiterated in the run-up to Saturday’s polls, that a vote for the opposition would divide and weaken the nation. However, many Malays proved undaunted, joining hands with Indians and Chinese to punish Abdullah’s administration for failing to tackle corruption, crime and inflation.BN was routed in the Malay-majority states of Kedah and Kelantan, while in many areas Malay support for UMNO was not much more than 55%, according to Ibrahim Suffian, program director of the Merdeka Center for Opinion Research. That significant numbers of Malays, Chinese and Indians voted for the opposition, despite the UMNO’s fearmongering claims, will lessen the likelihood that discord will play out along racial lines.It is not clear whether and how UMNO will respond to the democratic setback. The tendentious party has been known to react unkindly when its stranglehold on power has been threatened. In 1999, for instance, when PAS won the rural eastern state of Terengganu, then prime minister Mahathir Mohamad later deprived the state of development funds. He also restricted publication and distribution of the party’s newspaper Harakah. After enacting its revenge, the UMNO won the politically contested state back in 2004.Voter rejection of the BN this time is more encompassing, not only cutting across racial lines but also along rural and urban ones. The results also signal to Malaysians – long trained to think otherwise – that they possess the ability to check official abuses.Abdullah in the hot seatAfter the resounding setback, some believe the UMNO’s first order of business may be to pressure Abdullah to resign – perhaps opening the door for his deputy Najib to take over the party’s leadership. A spokesman for Abdullah said he has no plans to step down, and on Sunday senior UMNO leaders met at the premier’s official residence to show their support for him. He was swiftly sworn in as premier on Monday morning through UMNO’s and the BN’s simple majority.Yet even Abdullah’s resignation would not necessarily restore the UMNO’s and BN’s legitimacy, which the opposition has in the past pointed out is manufactured by opportunistic gerrymandering. The ruling coalition’s Indian and Chinese component parties are now widely seen as UMNO tokens, with their leaders cushioning their positions at the expense of their constituencies.The UMNO, meanwhile, has in many voters’ eyes become synonymous with mediocrity, feudalism, racism and patronage. The party’s young rising stars were expected to adopt a more progressive approach, but to many they have become indistinguishable from the old guard, which in turn has eroded public confidence in the UMNO’s ability to reform itself. Mahathir, for one, has accused Abdullah’s son-in-law and UMNO deputy youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin of being emblematic of this trend and said that he “played a big role” in the BN’s losses over the weekend.It’s perhaps telling of the mood in Malaysia that Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin – dubbed the “misinformation” minister by the opposition – lost his parliamentary seat in Kedah, while the popular critical blogger Jeff Ooi won the Jelutong parliamentary seat with DAP. The government had leveraged the traditional media it tightly controls to report that Malaysia is an economic miracle, respected by the world and breezing toward developed country status under visionary BN rule.Web portals and blogs like Ooi’s, however, have exposed Malaysians to the country’s less flattering realities and awakened many Malaysians to the fact that becoming a developed country will require replacing the political culture of mediocrity and impunity.Saturday’s results may pave the way for that shift. Both the opposition and the BN will feel the pressure to perform: the opposition has been given a precious opportunity and the BN can no longer take the public’s allegiance for granted.Incoming chief minister of Penang and DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng’s sober victory address to reporters on Sunday morning suggested that he is not underestimating the hard work ahead.Opposition icon Anwar, meanwhile, said he plans to start assisting the opposition to form governments in the states it now controls. A politically motivated corruption charge prevents him from running until next month, though it is expected that another member of the party – perhaps his daughter, who won a seat and has expressed some reluctance to enter politics – will step aside so he can
    contest in a by-election.New winds of democracy are expected to blow through Parliament as well, where the BN’s dominance had in the past all but turned the legislative branch into a rubberstamp of the executive. Dissenting voices will now be harder to ignore in Parliament, which under a previously unassailable BN majority lacked a culture of debate and accountability.As opposition leaders hailed Saturday’s results, the streets of the capital Kuala Lumpur have been eerily quiet – as perhaps they should be out of respect for the country’s still fragile social balance and during what amounts to a traumatic moment for some in a society that is not accustomed to genuine democratic change. If the BN and citizenry handle the transition gracefully, Malaysia will have taken an all-important step in its political development.Ioannis Gatsiounis, a New York native, is a Kuala Lumpur-based writer, political researcher and journalist

    Yang Berkhimat Wee. Firstly, Congratulations for winning Wangsa Maju seat! As an outsider, I consider what you are going to do as YB more important than the election itself. Let us move forward and start planning. Doing is easy, you just delegate to the local authorities – their job is to carry out orders. So, please use your influence to plan effectively for the rakyat (the Boss). Please take note that the people are ready for a change and not just talk. Talking is over for now. Action is needed to remedy a raft of issues1) Road management? Absent road signs – where should I turn? Do you know that we do not have a useful road directory? To make matters worst, most of the roads do not have signs (maybe they were stolen or not clearly visible). We are the laughing stock when not only we do not know where the Jalan is, when we asked the taxi drivers for direction, they also shaked their heads and cannot direct you to the destination. I know I have only a hand drawn map to get around KL hospital, PJ, Shah Alam, Sunway, Klang etc. That map is 6 years old and need updating but I could not get any better information. Please see to it that tourists and locals have a useful road directory for your area specifically and KL generally rather than depend on the good old memory. Then we could have less headache, traffic accidents, road rage (because the jalan suddenly become no entry) and frustrations. You can play a significant role in highlighting the historical places and cultural heritage of WMaju. Everyone should be proud of our multicultural background and heritage.2) Public health and hygiene. This is so critical when we have diseases that we do not have vaccines for. So please focus to increase hygiene level in public places – like having a place to wash hands with soap at all eateries. Muslim restaurants have wash basins with soap, why can’t other eating places have these as well? Are we living in 1950’s where water is scarce? Eating places should also have clean toilets for public to use, even if we have to pay to use one. This is no excuse for a country like ours who has celebrated 50+ years independence from our British masters. We must be proud of our hospitality, food and culture. Clean toilets are for everyone’s convenience, not just tourists. Rubbish should be collected and not subject to open air for flies, dogs and rats to visit. Fancy eating or drinking in a stall where you have to pinch your nose not to smell the poor drainage and flies. I feel sorry for the operators and the customers who could not afford to go into food court to eat or drink. So we are now living in class society where the poor are forgotten and invisible. Eateries should be a clean and pleasant place to eat. Please promote food safety, public hygiene and public health in your ceramahs from now. The community need to be aware that healthy living is not a privilege; it needs cooperation from everyone to do the right thing. It seems everyone is busy making a fast ringgit at the expense of food safety – note that not all food items from China are safe for consumption. You can play a big role in this cause. Everyone should applaud you for this.3) Crimes and community safety. I do not need to say more on this. It is everyone’s duty to report a crime or suspicious happenings rather than pass the buck to someone else. We must honour and respect law and order and assist the police as much as possible. We must treat our law enforcers with trust because they gave their lives to protect ours. You can play a major role in getting people united to reduce crime rate by helping each other, less kiasu, more generous towards victims of crime, bertimbangrasa to our neighbours and raise our conscience to look out for each other regardless of race, religion, creed or wealth. What is the point of being wealthy but your children or widows in the community have no food to eat? 4) Community education on social justice. Public should be made aware of their rights to seek justice in their everyday lives. For example, people who were “kena” by unscrupulous retailers or shops used to report to Michael Chong (MCA public complaints bureau) and highlight their misery. Where do people run to now that MCA has been decimated in the election? Will you champion the cause of the small and ordinary folk who has been threatened hoodwinked, shortchanged and/or lied to by major corporations, retailers, or Ah Longs? We must empower our consumer body to protect the rights of everyone in Malaysia. You can use your profile to be the people’s champion seeking for truth and justice.Hooray, I have finally found a champion in you to further these issues for the betterment of everyone in Malaysia. I hope to see you do well in future.Terima kasih and selamat sejahtera.( a posting sent earlier but received no comments from YB Wee. PErhaps this will get your attention.)

    RIZAL IS BOLD & THICK ALL OVERNST,MARCH 12 – Call to give deputy CM’s post to a MalayGEORGE TOWN: The Penang Malay Chamber of Commerce has called on the new state government to ensure the deputy chief minister’s post is given to a Malay. Its chairman, Rizal Faris Mohideen, also requested that several Malay state assemblymen be appointed as state executive councillors as they could deal with problems concerning Malays.”The problems being faced by the Malays need attention and need to be addressed,” he said yesterday.Rizal said there were many problems facing the Malays here which had yet to be resolved.He said there was a need for specific policies, such as the New Economic Policy (NEP), to help the Malays.”Among the issues are the economy and education. Malays are, at present, at the lowest end of the value chain. They have been marginalised,” he said, adding that rapid development and modernisation had contributed to the problem.On the state government’s plans to do away with the NEP in the state administration, Rizal said: “The Malays should not be deprived of the opportunity to excel.”The Malay agenda should not be compromised.”

    Dear Mr. Wee,The former Minister of Health Dato’Chua should not be invited for any public speech because of his controversal figure. I feel that even he is innocent by the law, he is not a good example for us. I do not know why Sinchewdaily invite him for the ceramah last night. As we know, all of us share responsiblility in maintain good moral values. We do not want to see too many broken family in our society and whereby their children suffer due to family problem. We have to teach our young children the right way to manage their family tides in future. Leaders should set good example and to be good role model to our society.Wanita

    I am writing in respond to the first post by Sam.Hi Sam,I am sorry to say that your party didn’t win in the Saturday election. Like in any democratic society, there is only one winner, even if that winner didn’t have at least 50.01% of the votes cast. While both the winners and losers are ‘Monkey’ as you have referred to, I am proud to see these new ‘monkeys’ in office simply because some of them had previously risked their life for what they stand for. Would you do that? These people could been a Tun or a Tan Sri and also a millionaire by now if they had crossed the floor years ago. I believe that you are not happy simply because of your losses in the shares market. Perhaps one thing you forgot that the share markets have be downward trend long before this election. In case you forgot please let me remind you some of the incidents that impacted this down fall like the US economy, weak USD, sub-prime loans crises and more importantly the current high oil prices.I am not sure what Linda Lee Cadwell has anything to do with the recent election out come. You really lost me there! You also touched on the West, like Australia, imposing a human tax on those Chinese migrants during the last gold rush. Perhaps you are not aware that this act was introduced by the NSW and Victoria State governments simply out of jealousy. You get rewards for working hard but in those days, white Australians don’t see it that way. Instead of killing them why not just imposed a tax on them for 10 pounds each for coming into this country? Is that fair to you? The white Australians are never proud of their past history, especially not the way they have treated those Australian Bumi. Only last month the PM of this country publicly, for the first time in Australia history, apologized to the aborigines people of this country for all the hurt and suffering they have bought on them. Considering these people have been living on this continent for thousand of years, yet they were only given their citizenship of this country after a referendum in 1969.You talk about Kelantan current crises. Why don’t you put the same question to the government, BN? After all they are the one that have control all funds allocated to the States. If they want to hold onto the RM10 billion until they reclaim the state, would you kowtow to this kind of blackmail. Definitely not me! Finally, since you said that you are either a Chinese, Indian or Malay, perhaps you should consider packing your bags and go back to where you came from! Obviously Malaysia is not your cup of tea at this current environment.

    To anonymous who wrote to Sam’s earlier comments. Anon asked Sam “to pack his bags and go back to where you came from.”My friend, there is no need to resort to such rude manners and arrogant attitude. This was exactly the similar sentiment expressed by Pauline Hanson (she was the champion of Anti-Asian migrants in late 1990s and early 2000’s in Australian political scenery headed by then PM John Howard – a neo-conservative). She said to us Asians to go home whence we come from because according to her “we do not assimilate into the Australian culture, our culture and customs are alien to the local Australians, we grab most of the job opportunities from the local Aussies plus we are a threat to the society because of this. Need I say more? Strong sentiments like these ended nowhere for govt policy nor human consumption. THese expressions are borned of evil desires to rid of a particular race or ethnic group. So if I were you, please look into the history of our nation,our Asian people residing in Western countries (they had it tough then and now. Such attitudes are still alive in the rural and regional areas where there is monoculture of one type only, the White culture. I am still learning from all this plus our recent win in the election but history of artrocious remarks should never be repeated. THis could led to all sorts of retaliation and see what happens to John Howard’s White Policy – he said “we shall determined who comes into our country and the circumstances they come in”..Learn from this and learn quickly, everyone because we cannot tolerate any bloodshed in Malaysia.
