Do it to me one more time? Please don't !!!

Badawi: We will be attending to it.

When the Auditor-General's report came out a week ago I was really pissed off la. Just like so many other tax-paying Malaysians. First of all they are wasting public funds. Meaning yours and my money. Secondly, I was pissed off because the AG releases these 'reports' year in year out but nothing seems to be done about them. Ever. So why irritate us all the time?

Each time it happens the whole country goes GASP! Aiyoh! How can man? Then the politicians make some statements and promise to launch studies and research on why it happened (read that as pour more good money after bad, ok?). Then we go back to doing what we do best as rakyat Malaysia. Nothing.

And so it is the same with the latest AG expose. RM224 for 1 set of screwdrivers la. RM5,000 for a car jack la. RM1,146 for 1 set of pens la. Gasp, looks of indignation while perusing newspapers for the latest TOTO results, complain, then......

Okay Jom! let's do something else less straining on the brain.

And another thing, why are we always so 'nice' to everybody? So all this bad management of public funds points to just plain old bad management, right? Non-transparency, right? Corruption, right? So why are the bosses still being so nice'. We must have the most patient, forgiving, benevolent government in the world. Everything also "nemmine" one. Do slowly ok? Don't angry ok?

For example, in today's Star la...

The Prime Minister says that the ACA should step in and investigate any suspicion of corruption in ministries and government agencies implicated in the Auditor-General's Report 2006 for mismanagement of funds.

"And where the information causes suspicion, then of course the ACA should go in and investigate. We will not hinder the ACA from carrying out investigations,” ... hello, Mr. Prime Minister when you do speak or say something can you please try not to be condescending ah? You think we all stupid or what? They 'should go in'???? What the f*** does that mean? "We will not hinder"???? What the f*** does that mean? Of course they MUST investigate. There's obviously been wrongdoing. Of course you MUST not hinder. Why would you unless you want to cover up wrongdoing?

“All ministers said they have already put officers in charge to clarify the matters raised in the report. So they are already attending to it".

Pak Lah, as the elected leader of this country
in whom we placed our trust and hopes, I would like, for once, to hear you lose it and get really angry and at least try to sound like you mean it when talking about something as blatant as this wastage of public funds.

Attending to it??? What the hell does that mean??? Tell the idiots that you won't stand for this nonsense anymore. Tell them that you are not going to leave any stone un-turned until the culprits are brought to book.

Okay la, so we all already know that there is actually shit-all you can do about anything at this stage of your career. But give us the pleasure of the delution of thinking that somebody in the government is actually getting mad as hell and won't stand for this anymore.

Oh sorry, yes I forgot. There's always the unity and harmony of the country to take into consideration. Yes, yes, yes...another need to say. I understand.

Cos the majority semua all apathetic already. Gomen already full of apathy and tidak apa attitude. People also same.

Thats I find also (among our residents), banyak complain but when it comes down to DOING something, everybody suddenly go quiet or go hide.

Very cacat.

daniel said...

The cabinet should take the cue from Shinzo Abe who had some screw-ups and made some bad cabinet appointments. Have some sense of honour and quit.

And we should have the ACA answerable to the parliament and NOT to any one person. Why should it take orders from only one man? Make it operate like Hong Kong's ICAC, no fear no favours.

yok hoong said...

rot starts at the head. if the cabinet can bail-out the RM4.6 billion KPA fiasco (which is smack of rip-offs by ruling party politicians), it has lost all moral ground to talk about the current pervasive corruption.the attitude is that if the top is corrupt, we down the line can just engage in the same nefarious activties. others called it "monkey see monkey do"

yok hoong said...

wanna more shocking revealation of the PKA fiasco ( RM4.6 billion corruption)? go to ancient mariner at

You just cant believe your eyes how these fellas can be so greedy. and they are all key personalities in the ruling party. thats BN for you, guys.

zzzFIL," Niahmah!!! Just be patient like me.We have to check the verity of the AG's reports first. In Government, we don't simply trust any rumours,eh...sorry, reports.. The ACA will investigate them, then we will set up a commission to verify the ACA's investigations..."

KTK," Ya,ya, follow the governemnt procedures ma.."

zzzFIL," Don't speculate about the AG's next year report. If the same things happen, rest assure we'll investigate..."

KTK," Ya,ya don't speculate.."

Dear Patrick... a belated thanks for your fun radio programs... they helped me spent some good moments away as a teenager decades ago...

On this issue, I absolutely share every word you say...

and if I may add... bl**dy hell, what the sh*t are those people doing, man... they are supposed to be running the country in good faith but this is the crap we are all getting year in and year out...

I really wonder what is it so difficult for these people to run the country properly... bl**dy hopeless fools lah...

And, are we supposed to continue hoping that things will change for the better? Jeeeezzz...

Mr Bojangles said...

Wow, another sign of our first worldliness....

To ensure pet owners are responsible and don't abandon their dogs, the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) will implant licensed dogs with computer chips.

"This chip" says MPS Council Prez "only costs about RM2 for each pet owner. MPS officers will have the scanner to identify the dog owners.

"This is so that we can trace irresponsible pet owners and put a hefty fine on them so they would not repeat their actions".

Another object, about 30 times the size of a mongrel, also has a form of identification and monitoring. But yet we are unable to trace owners of such objects having hundreds of summons for all kinds of offences. In fact some such objects are even larger and despite summonses to their owners are still plying their trade on our highways... one of them was recently involved in a deadly crash that killed over 20 passengers.

So what hope have we that this is not just another gimmick to save face after a snafu of major proportions (you know to show that we are actually clever people to have such modern technology), or just a pure money making scam to buy scanners, chips, surgery costs, bandages, ad nauseam, ad in finitum.

Sighhh. Why am I so negative.

An Umno friend of mine says the Prime Minister is expected to issue a statement on the AG's report soon. Abdullah is expected to call on the people to end speculation over the report for the sake of national unity. For the sake of national unity, we are expected to condone corruption and malpractice. Further discussion of this matter will only aggravate matters and result in disunity among the people. Malaysia Boleh. Semua Boleh. Corruption Boleh. Malpractice Boleh.

Plain robbery of public funds. World class organizations really, our govt depts.


nstman aka pukimah said...

I was having a discussion with an Umno buffoon, or mutt, earlier. He told me kickbacks, malpractice are part and parcel of life and he sees no reason why we should get riled up. He says national unity comes first, kickbacks and corruption should be on the backburner. His last word - Malpractices are also part of the social contract. Umno Boleh.

Aiyah, when you have someone with so little brain matter up there to rule the country then don't expect the practically brainless person to come up with intelligent responses to any issues.
Seriously, just listen to him give speeches! It is like some uneducated pakcik trying to sound like he is saying something important.
As for the AG's report, that's not new. EVERYONE knows how a set of pens can cost up to thousands when it comes to government. That's how they make the rich politicians richer and the poor citizens poorer.

Let's have a Niamah Day, instead of counting down to new year,let's pick a day, 12.00 noon on say, August 30th, just get out of your office or place you work and shout Niamah, Niamah, Niamah to all the hypocrites in Malaysia. Maybe it will be slightly more effective if we put our hands out like hitler, we shout, Niamah, Good luck to you.

sorry la, if i may sound silly but theres "nothing" to investigate anymore, right?? isnt it a straight forward case?? Auditors report shows that the items purchaed are not the market price, isnt that amounting to dishonesty and stealing? What is there to investigate?? Shouldnt the report made to the PM be made public since its "our" money being utilised and misused??

Anonymous said...

apa salahnya? tak apa lah, tutup satu mata la. small matter only. be patient, masa belum sampai, when the time comes, cast your complain in the election, and not here anymore, make a difference and deny them 2/3 of majority. then that's the time to prosecute them 1 by 1, see they scared onot? heehee

This country is made out of idiots.
Idiots ruling a bunch of idiotic bench of politicians. We are idiots too cause we know they are idiots and yet we let them behave as one.

Corruption is a part of OUR nature in this country. Police will be more interested in catching you without seatbelt than catching the ones who commit crime. Apply for this and that and when they go too slow and you complain, ok.. they will go EVEN slower. What can you do? Talking to them is like farting to their faces, and worse, they dun give a shxx. They love being farted. They dun mind being labeled lazy and useless as long as they get their easy money pay and hassle free promotions. Bribe them, wah... speedy gonzales. Who work more, will eventually GIVE in more. This is our nation's democracy.

I hardly let my smaller kids run about in the field anymore. You will never walk safe again.

What can you expect from him? Besides sleeping, he's pocketing all our hard earned money. Surely you don't expect him to report himself in to the ACA.

Anonymous said...

I don't see the need to investigate. All the evidence is in the AG report. Just fired those corrupt bastards!

Anak Bapa said...

It is not the first time and I can bet will not be the last ..... UMNO thinks they own the country and therefore gave them the birth right to plunder as much as possible. Unless and until rakyat are willing to change ... as they say ... pi mai pi mai tang tu !!!!

isnt tat typical of us.... 'takpe la' wat can we do! tats wat we alway do. crap shit!!

bloody sack those damn corrupted govenment asses... tats wat a real president should do!

can we sue them for misuse of our tax money?

isnt it obvious, like we didnt know this been happening for the last 50 years... still need to investigate huh?

In an ideal world the PM should have decapitated every Minister whose portfolio had been named. As many of you here have pointed out, 'investigating' the Government's chief forensic accountant (whose sole purpose for earning a government paycheck is to investigate in the first place) is the kind of retarded behaviour we expect of the village idiot's incestuous offspring.

Village idiot? Oh, wait, that would be us. We elected them, didn't we? Okay, some of us didn't. Either way, it is still our responsibility to make a hell of a fuss over this, but we don't because a) in Old Man's day this was Not Allowed and you could Go To Jail For No Apparent Reason. That was fine then, it was the way we did stuff, and stuff generally got along somehow.

But those times have passed. We are now saddled with an idiot whose sole purpose in life seems to be to leave it, so what is our excuse? The Press has been complicit in this, as always, and, luckily for you lot, a brilliant front-pager presented itself in the nick of time.

The A-Gs Report has now gone sideways as far we are concerned. But it is gratifying to see that in its place, some action is happening with the judiciary--action that the Bar Council seems determined to keep in the first five pages of the papers.

Lawyer fixing a judge, it seems. Same lawyer fixed a chief justice some years ago, if you guys remember. Same source leaked the new information. Interesting, no?

What to do? Easy. Arrest the lawyer. He has missed a court appearance, and we know more or less where he is, and the country he's in has an extradition treaty with us.

Arrest. Doesn't matter if we have no evidence. That is what magistrates and remand orders are for. Then beat the crap out of him and get him to admit to, well, anything up to and including the truth.

Instead: Minister after minister parrots the same nonsense. Oh, we must be careful because such unfounded allegations will bring the judiciary into disrepute.

The judiciary is ALREADY in disrepute, you idiots, as is every other branch of Government. Even if nothing has happened, it would be in the PM's best political interests to invent a case and let somebody hang, just for the hell of it.

U-En's political programme: A) Don't pay your taxes. If you do, you are an idiot. B) Take every chance you get, if you ever do, to be in contempt of court, and then ridicule their contempt. They are beneath mine, but it won't stop stooping to their level. (We must all make our sacrifices, no?)

Elween said... actually have a blog! well, my mum told me that we are kinda related but i don't know how. anyway, just want to say that, if Pak Lah shows his anger in front of the media, it wouldn't turn out to be something good. i think we are just doing fine now. Pak lah looks depressed and grew older than he is meant to look like, don't you think?

have a nice day and take care! :)

While the local papers NST,theStar, Utusan,Berita Harian - will not report this - let us all give full coverage of the MARCH. The March to Justice. Let us uphold the fellowship to purge Malaysia of EVIL.

We are Marching

The ground is shaking, Putrajaya is awakened from its sleep. A thousand lawyers, activists, and bloggers are marching peacefully to the PM’s Dept from the Palace of Justice. We form a line stretching almost a kilometre, I estimate. I am nearer the back row. It’s 12.15pm, about 20 or 25 minutes into the walk.

Earlier, about 200 lawyers were ordered by the police to get off the buses that were ferrying them from KL to Putrajaya. This group, led by Edmund Bon, had to walk 4 or 5 km to get to the Palace of Justice.

There are FRU trucks, a couple of choppers, and scores of cops to safeguard the peace in Putrajaya.

We are marching to safeguard the integrity of the Judiciary.

More later ….(Posted from a Blackberry).

Edmund Bon of the Bar Council has a message for you posted yesterday:

The walk tomorrow is a peaceful stroll to the PM’s Office. Everything humanly possible is being done and has been done over the couple of days to ensure this. The Cabinet has been informed that we are doing this, and handing over a memorandum and a representative will be expecting us.

The walk is importantly (1) a show of solidarity of the Bar and civil society’s positions on the issue (2) to send a message that we are serious about wanting a clean up of the Judiciary including by (3) calling for an independent appointments and promotion commission (4) calling for a royal commission to enquire into the recording and the state of the administration of justice in Malaysia.

A Star sms has been received about DPM announcing the establishment of a panel to investigate the authenticity of the clip. This does not change anything about the walk. We are still proceeding to walk because the issues we are advocating are not limited to the recording alone but with much larger issues as described above.

And would such a decision by the Govt for a panel be set up have been made without the continuous pressure from us and civil society which includes calling for this walk, more so after PM said there would be no royal commission?

Believe in the power we all have in making change, and believe in ourselves. We CANNOT be afraid to walk, we CANNOT look lowly on ourselves, we CANNOT give up our country to people who do not deserve to run it.


Warm regards

To live in Malaysia in Perfect Harmony within the races, we have to believe in the concept of Bangsa Malaysia.

This can only be done be eliminating racism in politics. Racial-based politics is not health.

This is a video dedicated to Bangsa Malaysia. A song created to be a singalong anthem for Malaysian.
