It would seem to me that the UMNO government that we now have under Najib sees its enemies to be everywhere. It is not enough that they use all the machinery of state to suppress the opposition, the ISA to stifle dissent in the most barbaric manner, the Judiciary, Police and MACC to harass and beat its own people. All this I see as an affront to the democratic principals that the government profess themselves to champion. And all this I see from afar and commented from afar. And it all seems to me to be a world apart because I see but I was not part of it. Until now. Yesterday they called in Bernard of Zorro Unmasked for reasons best known to those goons from PDRM for questioning. Today I finally realized that money can be deposited into my Bank Simpanan Account – but it could not be taken out. So I am out of a few hundred dollars – but I think in the long run it is BSN and the government that will be the loser.
I have had people ask that I use another Bank for them to deposit donations for steadyaku47 because they were uncomfortable in using BSN. I did not heed their advice. Now their fears are realized. I am out of a few hundred dollars but BSN loses some more of its credibility, its customers and of course my service.
If by doing this they think it will make my life difficult – yes they are right. It is causing problems for me to go on with my blog, harder for others to access my blog and harder for me to access my own blog. Emails sent and received are going haywire. And maybe I might have to stop for a while because this is my son’s computer and I do not want what I do to compromise his computer and affect his studies. I have not receive enough donation to do what I want to do to ensure that steadyaku47 proceeds without interruptions. And if I do stop they can say that they have succeeded in putting me out of business. But it will only be for a while until I get my resources together again. All that this will do is to make me more determine to be in business against those bloody goons and bastards. I will not stop.
All that I want is that through my writing bit by bit it this will go towards turning another one Rakyat against them – and for me that is enough. If one of those that read this is turned against opening an account at BSN, at doing business with BSN and at condemning at the manner in which the government conducts itself: that will do for me. That is all that I seek – just one a day turned against the government of Barisan Nasional – of UMNO – that is enough for me. One a day against UMNO is reason good enough for me to continue with this Blog. One a day is good enough reason for me to lose a few hundred dollars from the closure of my BSN account. All this will add up - come the next general Election let us hope that this one a day can make that difference. The difference between Pakatan Rakyat an UMNO being in Power!
You are ONE, with me we are TWO
