UPDATED 2.27PM, 17 June 2009. - inspired by S'wak 's comment I changed the original heading and added the poster from that classic from the 60's above.
ORIGINAL POSTI'm not part of Malaysian intelligentsia nor am I politically active or even politically motivated. My motivation stems from an ice cold beverage during Happy Hour, the odd Star Wars action figure and Neil Gaiman's latest literary adventure.
But lately it makes me wonder where are we really going with this party? We have a stronger Opposition but it basically feels like invited guests to your house party turn up without the second 'B' in BYOB. They're just draining the house keg and polishing off the chicken wings while the curtains are on fire.
The Federal boys too seem to be doing their best to remind us that we need a better, stringent education system so we have more informed citizens.
Below are some signs that we will never reach any so called vision or dream set out by political agendas in the next 10 years because there is not enough grey matter to share among those who represent us:
Solving the Mat rempit menace - "Lets train them to be pilots." Because at 30,000 ft they can't do the wheelie? Because you think cowards and thugs deserve better than those living below the poverty line?
Preventing H1n1 flu - "dont shake hands. Just bow your head or put your hand on you heart when greeting people." Holy frak. When Australia is doubting heat scanners will prevent or detect the flu and China is doing 100% checks ON the planes before landing at the airports (where they still have to go through the scanner) WE in all our wisdom are resorting to 'bowing'. -_-
The early stages of the haze (denial) - as usual the normal yearly bullshit lie - " the weather is hot so the air is HEATY." ?????????????????????? I woulda believed it if she said "all the cows in Malaysian farted at the same time". IT'S THE HAZE! Step out your air conditioned house, office and car and TAKE A DEEP BREATH woman! AND its not the Indonesians doing the open burning all the time.
"Go back to teaching Maths and English in Bahasa" Yes why not? Globalisation means driving from Perak to Kelantan to buy keropok lekor?
It's going to be an interesting time in the years to come...
