Let's keep the bastards honest

What we are seeing now are the death throes of UMNO as we have known it in the last 50 years. But it will be a slow death and the inflicted pain on our country will be unbearable if there is no one to deliver the coup de grace. There is not. UMNO and its leaders is not respected by most and loved by less. UMNO for money. UMNO for greed. UMNO for deceit. 

It is a long time between General Elections. We must keep our anger on the boil. The force is there the will is there. Just see what we did in Selangor, Perak, Penang and Kedah – and lately in KT. The sad spectacle of the Pakatan Rakyat’s Perak MB being escorted out of his office brings to mind Shahidan Kassim, Isa Samad, Rahim Thamby Chik, Idris Jusoh, Khir Toyo - all ousted by their own follies for those whom the Gods wants to destroy, he first makes mad. Remember Samy Velu? Remember Radzi Sheikh Kadir? Remember Rafidah the immovable iron lady who has virtually made the International Trade Ministry her very own kingdom. …then our Prime Minister himself…all asked to leave before they were ready to do so. Power in politics is so fleeting when measured against time as we know it.

It is not often that we have a Daem of Lim Chong Eu who left when their time came – held their heads high and went into retirement with a sigh of relief for having rid themselves of their political trappings. Ok Daem had his FU (Fuck You) money - and they needed him more they he needed him but he is the exception.

Lest we forget we must keep our anger on the boil because come the next election we can at the least, ensure that an effective two party is put into place and this is one of the most effective way of keeping the bastards honest. But it’s a hard task. We’re fighting against Politicians who cannot see beyond their noses – be it Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat - who are prepared to do just about anything to stifle dissent and avoid embarrassment. So keep your anger boiling so that come the next election we will do the necessary.

It does take a bit of a wait and we must have the numbers to make the difference. Lest we forget we must all keep the anger within us - not only anger towards Barisan Nasional but if need be towards Pakatan Rakyat for promises not kept. Do not despair because for all these bastards the day of reckoning will come when they have to face us at the General Elections..and be it Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat the fear of God will be with them when they face us. No longer would they be able to hide behind the Police, FRU or their money. It will just be them vs Us…and if we are one, united and focused on what we have to do - we will make that difference. For now they are in power and they will plunder OUR country to their hearts content. But let us stoically wait it out. Let us count the millions they steal from us. Let us wait for surely we can win in the end. 

"Its name is Public Opinion. It is held in reverence. It settles everything. Some think it is the voice of GOD". Mark Twain.

"Public service must be more than doing a job efficiently and honestly. It must be a complete dedication to the people and the nation with full recognition that every human being is entitled to courtesy and consideration, that honor is earned, not bought".


  1. That last quote there, is it HH's? It's a good ideal - but so very far from the reality, I think.

  2. that last quote is too good to be mine...reality is subjective. I would like to think that Hussein Onn would have insisted on it. So would Tunku. The others would take or leave as it suits them. Hence the rise of the obnoxious "Little Napoleons" and the "Mats" at the JPJ which our "Bai" had the misfortune to meet earlier on at the JPJ.
