Sssssssssssssssshhhhhh! Cabinet meeting in session.
This is a good Thursday for a few laughs from the newspapers and online news portals. On the front page of The Sun today there is a story headlined "Islam's status secure". The story is about Najib's furious attempts at defusing the tensions raised by the Utusan Malaysia articles about a Christian plot to take over the government and make Christianity the religion of the country. The PM said that "everyone must accept the fact that Islam is the official religion of the country and that it cannot be changed in whatever form. This is because the reality is that we have the Federal Constitution and its provision on the position of Islam and the other religions is very clear......Under whatever circumstances, the Federal Constitution cannot be amended and as such, no one should be worried or feel uneasy on this matter"...
What's funny is that Najib said the Federal Constitution is cannot be amended "under whatever circumstances". I think it is common knowledge that the Malaysian Constitution, since Merdeka, has been amended more than 600 times!!! So why our prime minister tell us cannot? Like that will sure scare anyone who thinks that the nonsense Utusan says will come true, right? Funny, right?
Another funny can be found on page N3 of The Star today. The headline read DOE: Drop in visibility an annual affair. The story was in reference to the shitty air-quality that we are currently experiencing. Haze up your ass that chokes your lungs faster than a pack of finest Virginia tobacco. What's funny? Don't you remember that just a few short years ago it was, "What?! Fuck the baargers!". Demonstrate in front of their Embassy. Boycott their maids and labourers. Report them to the United Nations. Stop listening to keroncong. How can they do this to us every year? And now it is "An annual affair"? But at least now they do say that the haze is the result of winds blowing over smoke from open burning in Sumatra. No more that "a neighbouring country" kind of shit. Progress!
On another page of The Star today is the report about Taib Mahmud's son divorcing his estranged wife. Mahmud's wife is asking for RM400million in matrimonial property and 'gifts'. Now I find that really funny. Why? How come Barisan Nasional chief ministers and YB's always have the ability to raise children who have such brilliant entrepreneurial skills as to amass vast fortunes in such a short time and at such a young age? Funny, right? Okay la. So it also pisses me off la. You too, right?
And this to me is the funniest bit from The Star today......"Umno has to be the pillar of the country. The Umno brand and its leaders are still strong and valued by the people. If we work hard to maintain our position by putting the people first, we will continue to celebrate more anniversaries in the future"....Najib Razak, president of Umno.
I want to laugh with you some more la but the haze is coming inside and I'm choking. It's just an annual affair la.
