Read and share.


I think this article by Zaid Ibrahim taken from The Malaysian Insider is worth reading and spreading to your friends and family. Malays and non-Malays.

APRIL 6 — So at last we are going to have a general election after all. The months of waiting have taken its toll on most people, but it’s important that they continue to have energy and spirit and to work hard to make this GE a meaningful one.

This week I want to talk to the Malays. They form the biggest block of voters and to them I say, this is your chance to have a new government. A new government will enable you to make a comparison with the one we have now. You have been told time and again that no one besides Umno/BN can govern and protect you, but wouldn’t it be better for you to try to find out for yourself? How can we know if Pakatan would be worse than Umno if we do not give them a chance?

You have to be brave and not let others bully you with fear and intimidation. The opposition parties have more Malays than BN so they will not harm you. They have worked hard and deserve a chance. For all you know, you may get better schools, better teachers for your children (as they may devote more time to teaching than politicking) and better security from the police and the army. Even your household income may improve as there will be more for the government to share with less corrupt leaders at the helm.

You will not lose if you vote for the opposition. If the opposition gets stronger because of your support but BN still wins, then you will get more cash handouts than they had promised. Money and projects have only been given to you because the opposition was strong — if the opposition had been weak, you wouldn’t have gotten the BR1M 1.0 and BR1M 2.0. It makes sense to vote for the opposition if you want more from the BN. Learn to value your votes to improve your livelihood.

Umno will use all the scare tactics in its arsenal, like telling you that Islam will no longer become the official religion and that the Malay Rulers will disappear if the opposition wins. You should ask your children and grandchildren if any of these can come true. Even they will tell you that this is all nonsense, just fear mongering by those desperate to cling to power when everything else has failed.

The Malays need to change their loyalty and support PAS as their protector. PAS is a Malay party just like Umno. The difference is that PAS has never been entrusted to rule the country. If the Malays can give Umno 50 years to govern, surely it’s not too much to give PAS at least five years. The opportunity for PAS to rule (in coalition, of course, with PKR and the DAP) is an historic moment for the Malays to seize. If PAS is not able to govern well then the people can always go back to Umno. Choice is what the Malays need for their own wellbeing — they have not had it in the last 50 years.

I know it’s easy to persuade the Malays to support their leaders and not go against them. They will be reminded of the cash and all the help that’s been given to them. They will be told to be grateful. They will be told that BN and the government are one and the same so if you want more from the government, then only BN leaders can help you.

Again, I urge you to talk to your children and grandchildren. The monies/salaries that BN leaders give in exchange for votes do not belong to them, but to the people of this country. It’s wrong for leaders to bribe you for votes. They have not been sincere to you. It’s not wrong for you to vote for the leader/party of your choice and still keep the money. In fact, if you vote for the opposition then BN will have to give you more next year. Either way, you win by supporting the opposition.

The fucking problem is that both BN & PR are giving handouts as to topple each other. Both the coalitions are the freaking species but with different names (that's all & nothing more than that).

MCA & MIC are stooges of UMNO, while, DAP & PKR are the same stooges of PAS. Should Pakatan Rakyat really form the govt., I can guarantee the 1st thing they will do is to fight out with each other over who should succeed as the next PM. PAS will say "FUCK OFF! Anwar", while PKR & DAP will say "FUCK OFF! Talibans".

Too sensible to have much effect. People only change if they are fed up or fear something.The UMNO controlled MSM has been telling lies for so long that it does not know what truth is any long.

Zaid should be brave enough to bring up all the issues that matter to Malays (and of course to the Chinese, Indians, Dayak, Ibans, Kadazans, etc)like the misuse of petroleum monies, milking of the Treasury for the benefit of a few well-connected people, erosion of freedoms, lack of the rule of law in the manner people are marginalise beginning with the questions of mosques in Kelantan, etc.

He should tell them that this may be their last chance as UMNO will no doubt move heaven and earth to cause trouble for those against the UMNOputras. Spell it out man, unless you got something to hide yourself.

man, what pure nonsense is this ?
PAS and then vote back UMNO. I can never trust PAS, look they just blew money in Papua, Kelantan, is a piece of shit country.

Seriously, vote with a right mind. Not because of BRIM, BROOM, whatever.

vote on who can do the best. Vote for a stronger Malaysia and not for a weaker country. So far, Pakatan is just bullshitter. I'll put my vote to BN.

When you get your ballot paper, make sure there are NO MARKINGS made on it. If the SPR kerani wants to play funny tricks, all they need to do is to pre mark the paper (a dirty smudge or dot) and if you don't 'pangkah the same calon, its considered a spoilt vote.

Be observant, be careful and be brave enough to say 'tukar' when you know you are being cheated.

作为世界上数一数二的储蓄基金,EPF已经存放着1千2百万名大马人的毕生储蓄,总额超过4千4百零5亿2千万令吉。

但是这些数额庞大的存款,截至2011年,由巫统主导的中央政府已经透过各种巨额借贷和投资的名堂,动用了EPF里头60%的存款。

而截至2010年12月,单单巫统政府本身,就拖欠了EPF两千四百亿令吉。

有评论就这样形容,我们打工仔是EPF公积金局背后的股东,然而这些年来巫统却把EPF当着是它的 “私人饼干罐”private cookie jar。不过,不是国库有多钱就拨一点过去,而是从这个饼干罐里偷钱。

这点不禁让人联想到,为什么政府强硬要求雇主把原有的12%缴纳率,提升到13%。这是不是为了填补EPF的财库黑洞呢?至今没有政府领导层对广大的打工仔做出解释。

我们打工仔的EPF退休金,在退休的时候还能够完完整整的原银奉还吗?你认为呢?

MCA need to use its whole MCA youth machinery to deal with just an ordinary member from DAP 'Superman' Hew, that is how pathetic MCA has become, instead of focusing on more important agenda, instead they have help 'Superman' become even more popular!

It looks like Zaid has reach the age of wisdom and now... speaks from the heart.
Unfortunately...he is not an influential man to get Malays attention.
However...one more well educated Muslim speaks out like this is good for the country.

Mr Lonely said...

agree!

After all the 'hopeless case' scenario of MCA for so many years, one wonders why so many mca members still cling and support a sinking ship! No guts to quit? I thought chinese are wise and practical people not beggars! No sympathies for boot-lickers! RIP McA!

It is very difficult to get many Malays to understand and accept the sad fact that Umno, the one founded by Tunku Abdul Rahman, is dead and gone. Deregistered as enginered by Mahathir a/l Iskandar Kutty.

Mahathir in his anger at being sacked from Umno by Tunku, plotted revenge against Tunku and Umno.Tunku saw in Mahathir an evil man and many in Umno supported his decision. Mahathir’s best vengence is to allow Umno to be de-registered. And to top it up, he rubbed salt into Tunku’s wound, he formed Umno baru, coerced Umno members to join Umno Baru. Tunku died a sad man.

Till today, many Malays think that Umno Baru belongs to them, that Umno Baru and Umno is one and the same. They still think they are better off than before, than other Malaysians – which is far from the truth

The new Umno Baru is solely his, Mahathir’s party. Mahathir made use of the blind patriotism of the Malays to his personal advantage. He used race, religion, royalty to hoodwinked the common Malays to give him their unwavering loyalty, support and adoration. He made sure that Malays became dependent on him, his Umno Baru. That they forever be grateful to him and can only stand on crutches, he said so himself.

Today we don’ have Umnoputras. We only have Umno Baru-putras, a different breed altogether. These new breed has no soul, no shame, no conscience, no integrity, utterly corrupt, resort to threats, blackmail, misuse the law, give out citizenship to undeserving foreigners while rejecting citizenship to bona fide Malaysians, abuse the judiciary, abuse religion for political gains, blackmail the PDRM, MACC, Jabatan Immigresen, civil service, election commission to do its biddings. I could go on and on and I could fill a volume larger and bigger than Rosmah’s biography.

For the past 30 years, Umno Baru held Malaysians to ransom in order to stay in power. With the GE13 looming, its colours begin to change like the chamelion. Goodies here, goodies there like an old santa who forgot that Christmas is over. It maintains that Umno Baru is the only party fit to rule Malaysia, the only pary that can govern.

Yet, today many Malays still support Umno Baru even when there is PAS and PKR as alternatives. Why is it so? I guess Mahathir a/l Iskandar Kutty has done a good job convincing many Malays to sink with the captain and the ship. The fact is that Umno Baru and its ardent supporters are the ones keeping the rest of Malaysia in perpetual slavery to elites like Mahathir and all his cronies.

Anything that comes out from Zaid is now no better than a pile of rubbish. This person has lost his credibility, leaving UMNO, joining PKR, leaving PKR, badmouthing both sides in the process.

Pat, you are not that naive to buy what he says, are you?

As naive as they can be, BN think by dishing out goodies, they will win the hearts of the voters. But they can just dream on because most of us have decided that our votes will go to Pakatan regardless. By the way, some generous people in BN sponsored cars came to our area yesterday and gave out goodies like plastic bag with BN logo embossed on it to my father. But he told me he will vote for the opposition. Well, old folks like him who used to be loyal supporters of BN has changed their minds.

MCA= Money Collecting Association
MCA= Many Clowning Asses
MCA= Make Chinese Angry
MIC= Malaysian Idiot Committee
MIC= Make Indians Crazy
MIC= MICkey Mouse Club
UMNO= U Must Not Oppose
UMNO= U Must Not Object
UMNO= Unruly Malaysian Nazi Organisation

All of these will be fielding candidates even though they are responsible for scandals like the Murder of the Mongolian girl, Cowgate, Bank Bumi, PKFTZ, MCA Finance Co-Ops, Chua's China mistress, Maika, FELDA, etc etc.

Please talk to your friends, relatives and neighbours (many are not on the net) about these matters and tell them of the opportunity they have to be rid of this bunch of shits.

Malaysian Chinese should read The Sunflower paper 《太阳花》online:

http://sunflowerpaper.com/

The newsletter is currently distributed free in Selangor, KL and Johor. It counters MCA’s argument of chaos if Pakatan wins.

Avoid that rotten tomato at all cost!

Umno led BN has transformed itself by offering a higher bribe to the rakyat from RM10 20 years ago to RM 500 last year and hopefully RM1,200 next year. That is the culture of Umno. To stay in power forever so that they can plunder Umno led BN will continue to insult the intelligence of Malaysians by offering bribes to win votes. They had milked most GLCs , chopped almost all valuable timber, grabbed million hectares of state land including NCR lands in East Malaysia and are now targeting our petroleum resources.

Malaysians must stop all these robberies by Umno led BN whose PM, cabinet ministers and thief minister have only one ambition in life, to be billionaires by plundering our nation and dividing all the races and community to stay in power.

We must not make the same mistakes for being indifferent, gullible and allowing ourselves to be deceived over and over. Umno led BN must not continue to rule and must be voted out in GE 13. The making of history is in our hands.

这一次也是最后机会去改变,错过了再也没有机会了...

月亮聂阿兹长老已年迈,火箭铁汉强人祥叔卡巴星也高龄,蓝眼安华又被巫统蓄意连拖代打强窃不入!

今天,难得众在野党放下多年成见而结盟,火箭月亮蓝眼,这百年难得一见良机,实属机会难逢。

集中火力以“一对一”朝野对撼,摆脱多年来众野对一朝,野党选票皆分散的困境,而让国阵54年来频频独占鳌头,东方不败。

但国阵花无百日红,今天我们国家政治格局已来到如此境地,着实大家都乐于见其成,再不把握时机,这大势将犹如大江东去,永不回头了。

各地朋友们,让我们珍惜机会,把握这难得的机会,共同写下历史新一章,见证大马成功革命,廉明新政实现。
