Entertainment today

Adam: Don't angry ah. Just joking only. Heheheheheh...

First, the Prime Minister says that maybe the government will compensate victims affected by the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide. Then his minister of Housing and Local Government proudly announces that the landslide is not due to human negligence so it is an act of God. Act of God will mean no compensation, right? God made it happen what so how can you ask ME to pay you?

Then some people were very happy when DPM, Najib announced that he was 'mulling' over the introduction of hillside laws similiar to those in Hong Kong. Good!!! Right? I mean Hong Kong has loads of hillside developments and their safety record is almost impeccable. Right? Wrong. Why?
Because in Hong Kong..."it was not the government but the home owners in Kowloon, a hilly area in Hong Kong who have to 'spend millions' of their own funds to monitor, maintain and manage the slopes, roads and drains on their private properties."

So all they're mulling over there in the DPM's office is how to pass the buck and the bill to you and me. But I hope somebody remembers that in Hong Kong it is the government who initially makes sure that developers build according to the proper safety standards set before selling the properties to people who want homes "with a good view" as our PM says. Sure, after purchasing it with full knowledge of the law then we will gladly take responsibility. Can we achieve this in Malaysia? I doubt it. And what is the government mulling over to do about all of us schmucks who bought our hillside properties before all this? Too bad la, what to do? Issit?

And then as if to kick us in the balls while we are still reeling from our losses the Deputy Prime Minister warns, 'The government hopes that people will not have short-term memories. Many just want to get profits and put aside safety and environmental concerns."

Well if the DPM doesn't have the shortest fucking memory!!! Did he forget that the government did jack-shit after 48 people died in Highland Towers? This fucker even had the cheek to tell us, "We will have to discuss it as we do not want this to not happen again as there is cynicism that statements by leaders will not be heeded by local authorities."

Do not want this to not happen again??? Statements by leaders not heeded by local authorities??? What the fuck does that mean? That you can't control and manage your own circus?

And one last kick in the balls...'A mechanism must be put in place to prevent high-risk projects,' he concluded. Ya! Close the stable doors AFTER the horses have bolted. I hope he remembers to close the submarine hatches before they dive.
And now for something completely different....

Prime Minister, Badawi has recently been thumping his chest and mouthing off about 'reforms'. And he tabled Bills in Parliament yesterday in the process. Two of those Bills were to set up new bodies to oversee judicial appointments and fight corruption. Great! Right?

Okay, The Anti-Corruption Commission will replace the Anti-Corruption Agency, which has been criticised as being toothless. But the Anti-Corruption Commission will still need the Attorney-General's consent required for prosecutions. And who does the Attorney-General report to? The Prime Minister, of course! Eh? Aiyoh! Same thing isnit? You think that is comical? Listen to this...

The Bill on the Judicial Appointments Commission proposes setting up a nine-man panel to make recommendations for appointments of judges to the High Court and above.

Under the current system, the sole prerogative lies with the PM on the recommendation of the Chief Justice. But here is the joke...the commission, which will include four “eminent persons”, will recommend names but the PM has the final say. So no diff lor. Wait...there is more stupidity coming. The Prime Minister also said that it would not pose a problem as the PM would not carelessly disregard the commission's recommendations.

Okay, now we can add NAIVE to the list of adjectives to describe this poor man.

Leaders forget
About tragedies of the past
Lives lost on collapse buildings
And they say it is act of God

So no compensation
Under the law the owners bear
Unless they can proof it is developer negligence
Then sue the company for shoddy work

The government agencies
Immunity laws help the officers
What they have done
They can’t be prosecuted in court of law

These officers escape
The clutches of death in their hands
They aren’t be held accountable
Turning quick buck forget about losses
Of lives and properties
When nature charges her fury

One minister says
It is a natural disaster
It isn’t man made negligence
A sequel of the Act of God
How stupid he thinks the public is?

Don’t buy hill slope properties
Don’t even think you get good Feng Shui
When nature rears her fury
You can only pray

The government forgets
The old record keeps playing
Nothing has changed
Lives will be lost
Unless we change them
And our perception of good living

Hey Pat,
Fantastic write up, agree with you that it is more of the same bullshit. Or should I say same shit different day!!!!!!!!! My comments here more or less mirrors what I have commented in Rocky's write up. PM still retains executive powers. So no difference, but just to add salt to the wound (or as you aptly put it 'one last kick to the balls') the possibility of Pak Lah using these two 'reforms' for his own benefit i.e stay on as PM afer March is looking more and more imminent. CAN'T STOP FUCKING LAUGHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aiyah, I told you so la. Everyday those comedians will talk kok one, so if you remain serious, you will get heart attack. The only way to overcome them is to treat them as comedians, period!

I mean when you watch Mr Bean, he does all the nonsense, you will laugh right? When you read Lat cartoon, silly ya, so you laugh ya? So unless, and only if you treat those buggers as comedians in the making, you will get frus and aggro. Take it fr me, laugh at them and if you dont want to laugh anymore, then vote them out. If you cant vote them out, you best find a way out the main door at KLIA. Be quick, the door is closing fast; no, not the door at KLIA. The door overseas! Too many people rushing out fr their country. Overseas govt also scared, got to spend money on unemployment benefits on those new migrants during bad economic time.

I agree that the government is trying to shift the blame to consumer. Something like the petrol price. Government is the one making profit.

Do away with the immunity to local councils and we can talk about the new HK rules.

GMA Network Inc. filed a suit yesterday afternoon, December 3 at the Quezon City Regional Trial Court against TV5, Malaysian company Media Prima Berhad (MPB) and MPB Primedia for entering into an unlawful blocktime agreement.

Here is GMA Network’s official statement in full:

“GMA Network, Citynet, and ZOE Broadcasting have filed a lawsuit against ABC-5, Malaysian company Media Prima Berhad (MPB), and MPB Primedia for allegedly entering into an unlawful blocktime agreement.

GMA Network is asking the Quezon City Regional Trial Court to nullify the blocktime agreement between MPB Primedia and ABC-5 as the agreement violated the 1987 Philippine Constitution, which restricts ownership and management of mass media to Filipino citizens or corporations.

The said blocktime agreement allowed MPB Primedia to control and manage ABC-5’s programming content and airtime sales.

GMA Network said that while MPB Primedia’s Articles of Incorporation indicates that it is Filipino-owned, it is in truth a subsidiary of Malaysian company Media Prima Berhad. The Verification or Reservation Request of Primedia on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) indicates that the acronym ‘MPB’ in its corporate name stands for ‘Media Prima Berhad’ which is the same name of the Malaysian company.

This was later confirmed when MPB stated in its own website that it ‘has set up a subsidiary, MPB Primedia, Inc. that will soon enter into a blocktime agreement with the ABC5 network, one of the television networks in the Philippines.”

GMA also said that according to the report of Merril Lynch of Singapore on March 25, 2008, the acquisition of ABC-5’s airtime forms part of the investment strategy of the Malaysian corporation, Media Prima Berhad, to establish a company in the Philippines, which will be owned by MPB at seventy percent. This Philippine company was identified in the report as Primedia.

MPB Primedia has an authorized capital stock of P5,600,000. Twenty-five percent (25 percent) of Primedia’s authorized capital stock was subscribed by its incorporators and directors. Out of the 25 percent subscribed capital, only P350,150 has been paid.

The transfer of control and management of ABC-5’s programming content and airtime sales to MPB Primedia constitutes intervention by a foreign company and/or its dummy in the management and/or operation of a 100 percent nationalized business activity which violates the Constitution and the Anti-Dummy law.

As mandated by the Constitution, mass media, which includes television and radio broadcast, is a completely nationalized business activity. The Anti-Dummy Law (Commonwealth Act No. 108, as amended) punishes the evasion of nationalization laws and prohibits non-Filipino citizens from intervening in the management, operation, administration, or control of any nationalized activity.

It being contrary to the Constitution and the Anti-Dummy law, GMA Network said that the blocktime agreement entered into between ABC-5 and MPB Primedia is void.

GMA Network likewise said that the blocktime agreement between ABC-5 and MPB Primedia results in unfair competition against local broadcasting networks. GMA said that while it continues its operations within the bounds of law, ABC-5, MPB and Primedia employed illegal methods to evade restrictions on mass media ownership, which have deprived GMA and other local networks of the fair chance to engage in the broadcast business.

Since its re-launch in 2008, TV5 has ascended to the number three post in TV ratings.

Apart from asking the court to declare the blocktime agreement between ABC-5 and MPB Primedia null and void, GMA Network is also claiming a total of P11 million for damages, including attorney’s fees and litigation expenses, from ABC-5, MPB, and MPB Primedia to compensate for the loss of revenues due to unfair competition.”

Act of God? Read this letter in the NST today They already know the problem long time ago. Now they say Hong Kong has the problem under control. Read this, an apartment there sell for US$28.8 Million. With that sort of money not only they can build up on the hill slope, you can even build a space station hundreds of km up. Hong Kong island is a whole solid piece of rock. Look at this it has been sitting on top of a rock for hundreds of years. Bkt Antarabangsa is unstable as mentioned in the NST letter. Also, does Hong Kong have alternative? Do we in KL have alternative places to build? MBs and local council may give approval, but the recommendation must be from the geotech engineers. It's irresponsible of engineers giving such recommendation.

If a minister can say "she was arrested (ISA)for her own safety", what is left that they are scared to say anymore!

KoSong Cafe said...

Our HK friend (PR) has a unit in your condo. She is pissed off because Bukit Antarabangsa is now bad news and publicity even if a particular condo is safe. I can understand why you are so angry these days.

As for MCAC, doesn't it sound like ICAC? Maybe public impression will improve thinking it is similar to HK? In Terengganu, a university that physically looks like Harvard might impress students and others, never mind the standard of professors or lecturers.

If Finance Minister said Valuecap is not for bailing out companies, then we should take his word. After all, 80% of people (who read newspapers) are convinced, why worry about the small number who use the internet? This formula worked for 51 years can't be wrong, can it?

So , now they wanna follow HongKong.
This type of thing wanna follow the HongKong style.
Why not our very own police force and our ACA follows the exact HongKong style? Anyone who had read the reform bills on judges and aca knew that nothing will not be change.
If such important bills changes nothing , know the meaning lah.

patrick kor,

Nice article. Dont just quote in HK, the owners' is liable for slope maintenance. The govt and its agencies are also responsible for the slope maintenance.
In HK, we have ordinance to enforce slope maintenance, and enforce it we will!

The following is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is said to be Dr. Emanuel Tanay, a well known and well respected psychiatrist.

A German's View on Islam

A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'

We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics, who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our posers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.

Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.
