Foamy Mouth also announced that the government was not planning to have laws to restrict or control blogs and bloggers. Why? Now, this you have to read to believe. The wise minister said, "I feel the government is not proposing to do that as maybe the number of naughty persons who abuse the facility is not big... one or two per cent only of the total in the blogging world......." Naughty persons??? I know Shabery isn't the most articulate of persons but his choice of words really amazes me la. Y.B. I would like to propose that the government isn't proposing to do shit because they really don't know what to do that would work. Right?
And now for the best laugh you have to read this part of his statement on the steps taken by the government to face the global economic crisis. Ahmad Shabery said Malaysia had not seen large lay-offs as in Western countries like the United States where the number of people who sought aid and social benefits was at its highest in 16 years.
"We don't hear of that in our country as our economic system is better established and the government's preparation is far better than that of the Western countries," he said.
Now as a loyal Malaysian who trusts his government I should be really happy to hear that from a minister. Right? But no la. Why do I think instead that our government is actively encouraging us to bury our heads in the sand and hope that it will all go away eventually? I am still a loyal Malaysian. So I guess that just makes me a Malaysian who does not trust my government. Yup!
Don't worry! Semuanya OKAY!
