Thought of the day

I thank whatever gods may be / For my unconquerable soul. / I am the master of my fate / I am the captain of my soul. ~William Ernest Henley, Invictus

Government's promises are like the Ringgit, they depreciate with time.

Still Remember Altantuya Shaariibuu??

Dr. M never stop to amuse me.
This time, the arrow is directed at the going-to-be successor of the current premier - Najib.

Somehow, I think Det (Dr. M's pen name) is trying break the "RAHMAN" circle:
R - Rahman
A - Abdul Razak
H - Hussein Onn
M - Mahathir
A - Abdullah Badawi
N - Najib?

But, I totally agree with Dr M. Why? Aside from the reasons stated by Dr M himself, here is my point of view:
  • Razak, his father was the mastermind behind the May 13, 1969 racial riots which was aimed to overthrow Tunku Abdul Rahman. This is followed by the launch of the Malaysian New Economy Policy (MNEP), which marks the rise of the Malay capitalist. Last but not least, he initiated the change of education media from English to Bahasa Malaysia which had set many Malaysians far from being successful worldwide. Short-sighted he may be, he lacked of foresight as well, and people say "Like father, like son".
  • He is the great-grandfather of the keris-hoisting culture. Back in 1987, he defended special Malay privileges in a speech where he vowed to bathe the keris with Chinese blood. Defending the Malay's special rights is not wrong, but playing the racist card in a multiracial society is a no-no.
  • Somehow as the Minister of Defense, he is careless to give a decent explanation of how the C4 got out of the Defense Ministry, finding its way to blow up some Mongolian model.
Somehow, I just don't trust people who can cast national unity aside, least to support those who might simply blast a C4 at you. Now, I wonder why Pak Lah identified Najib as his successor despite all those controversies. Do you smell something cooking? Citizens of Bolehland, would you entrust the country's fate in his hand?
