Doesn't bode well for us bloggers.
I hear a whole bunch of bloggers are going to get rounded up soon.
I'm going to get arrested 'for my own safety'.
I wonder what kind of treatment us VVIP's get in there.
Why is it our government likes to suppress the truth?
Is it because the truth may just bring them ti their knees?
It's pathetic, I tell you. Just because us bloggers want to do something about the current situation in the country, they go and pull us down for 'Sedition' or slap the ISA on us. For once in my life, I feel like telling the truth may be a crime.
If we're going to get arrested for our own bloody safety, you ought to make those prisons a little larger. Because if that's the case, a whole lot of bloody people are going to ask to get in there, because it's obviously not safe enough for them out here.
Maybe we should start arresting tourists too, to avoid them getting blown up by C4's.
Or arrest entire families, so that their safety is ensured.
What kind of a s**ty answer is that?
Seriously, the Govt. ought to employ someone with a brain to speak for their Reps. during press conferences to avoid getting stupid answers like arresting people for their own safety. Tak masuk akal. But then again, half of the Parliament dont have an akal, right? Akal ada pun tak berguna, sat mereka tak tahu macam mana n'dak guna, is a answer from an old relative of mine when asked.
I knew that the whole Taipei thing must have been some kind of ploy to stop September 16th from happening. Why else would they send the whole Parliament to Taipei?
Don't worry, I honestly think that the power-shift is coming.
I still don't know when, though.
Get ready because when it gets here, it's going to rock BN to the ground.
Then they can kiss goodbye to all those ill-gained riches.

They're making too many stupid mistakes.
Everyone is so busy back-stabbing each other, that nobody is actually governing the country.
After all this is dealt with, what is left of our beloved country?
Ok, let's look at the facts. All the money that ought to be used to 'alleviate poverty' is being used for 'something it ought not to be used for'. So what happens to the people that should be receiving the money? They 'slowly creep into poverty'. But at least the Menteri's are living comfortably, right?
Just for your info, UMNO's got a housing project in Janda Baik, Pahang.
Must be the ex-MB Selangor getting lonely. Probably built them for all his suap buddies.
I was pondering on an issue of a glossy news magazine the other day. The article was about the elections. I saw all the glossy pictures of BN supporters putting up flags and banners, then being whisked away in an army of black pick-up trucks.
Those trucks didn't look older than a month.
Those trucks were decorated in BN paraphernalia.
I don't remember the purchase of expensive trucks in the 9th M.P. or the 2008 Budget.
Where did that money come from? Shouldn't it have been put to better use?
Right now, all I want is a new (or revised) Government. All I want is to see all those *____________* kicked out of their beautiful leather chairs in their tastelessly decorated offices. I want all that money returned. I want that money to be utilized properly. Food & shelter for the homeless, things like that. Or revamping the Education system.
Revamping the education system is important
Because the Menteri's we have are a result of our education system.
Right now, I'm not supporting any party in particular. Anything but BN. I'm living under BN rule now, but I don't want to die under BN. Anything but that.

My dear Datuk Anwar, what have you done? Some of your supporters were looking forward to the change, and now some of them are looking at you like some kind of pretentious idiot. They're disappointed, and some of them are hoping for a new savior. Is that how you want to be seen?
I am disappointed. When I saw the newspapers piled up at the local 7-Eleven, I thought they'd all say 'Anwar Ibrahim successful!' or 'Anwar the new PM!'. And I was crestfallen to find that the day was so uneventful that I didn't even notice.
Come on! This country needs change. And it needs it NOW. Because we're at the edge. And in order for us NOT to fall off the cliff, we need (I know I said it already) change. Somehow, I think that our pathetic government is DESPERATE for someone with a backbone and a BRAIN to sit in the top chair.
You know who could have been a great PM? Rafidah Aziz. While the guys were mucking about, calling each other prats and what-evers in Parliament, Rafidah went straight to the point. She got things done. And I personally think the whole AP license fiasco was just a set up to make her look bad. Typical of our Kerajaan, kan?
Regardless, if Anwar wants to take over our Govt, do it quick. We can't wait much longer. Hurry up, some of us are getting inpatient......

Ok, Dato. Tell me, what did Koh Soo Koon do to you? What, did he actually tell you just how much of a narrow-minded brat you are? Orang kampung pun hidup berharmoni. Melayu, India, Cina. Tak kira.
Absolutely pathetic. If Tun Dr. Mahathir was around, I'm sure he'd be jailed under the ISA, or under whatever bogus charge they can come up with (which they're good at). But both Najib & Abdullah have NO backbone. Not even 1 comment on the matter.
Let's be honest. BN haven't got a leg to stand on. September 16th, hopefully, will be the last time we'll see them. And we thought they'd play it cool, and maybe go out with a bang. But with this fiasco on the table, the post-millenia BN may be noted in history as 'a millennium mistake.'
What on God's blessed Earth could the Gerakan members have done to this hot-tempered git to have incurred a wrath of this magnitude? No matter how idiotic this guy may seem, it's a valid question. I don't follow the news, and my Internet connection sucks, so brilliant blogs like Rocky's Bru are a little out of reach. Please, fill me in!
To you Barisan supporters who may be reading this blog, try and get your beloved Party to get it's act together. It's sad. Not to mention childish. May September 16Th bring good tidings to this country.

Alahyarham Tok Samad Ismail passed away earlier this evening.
He is an ex-journalist.
He is an ex-ISA detainee.
He fought for free media.
He fought health issues.
He was a fighter.
He is our Bapa Kewartawanan.
His presence will always be felt in the hearts of many journalists.
His memory will live on in the hearts of those who know him.
He leaves behind a wife and children to carry on the legacy.
May have a great afterlife.
'For all great things must come to an end.'
'Khun Faya-Khun' (Surah Yasiin) For what He wills, will be.

Nuraina looks as if she hasn't slept in weeks.
Pray for Tok Samad.
What would Malay Literature be without him?
What would Malaysia be without him? Without his ongoing struggle for what is right?
God help him.
