Seksualiti Merdeka: Bar says freedom for all, not just majority – by Yow Hong Chieh – 11th November 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 — The Malaysian Bar has called on the authorities and media to stop persecuting Malaysians based on sexual orientation, in line with the prime minister’s call for moderation. Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee said it was not a question if the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) lifestyle was agreeable but whether Malaysians should be discriminated against purely because of who they are and what they think. Lim said the Malaysian Bar stands alongside those who face discrimination. — File pic He also pointed out that the Constitution assured every Malaysian the right to life and to meet up with like-minded people to express themselves freely.
“The Federal Constitution does not say that these rights are given only to the majority, or those who live in conformity with the beliefs and practices of the majority. “These rights are not given only to those who agree with us. They are given to all. We must be mature and learn to accept that,” he said in a statement. Lim gave his statement to police earlier today on the Malaysian Bar’s involvement in Seksualiti Merdeka, an annual sexual rights event that religious authorities as well as Malay rights groups have called immoral and a threat to Islam. “I wish to reiterate that the Malaysian Bar stands alongside those who face discrimination,” he said. “This is true whether the reason for that discrimination is sexual orientation and gender identity, or for any other reason that we think is inappropriate.” Lim said Seksualiti Merdeka had done nothing illegal or illicit, adding that it was up to the courts to decide if any law had been broken.
Seksualiti Merdeka, a movement championing the freedom of sexual orientation and gender identity, has been holding its festival annually since 2008 but sparked heated debate after the authorities banned this year’s celebration. Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Khalid Abu Bakar said the police were not against freedom of expression or human rights but had to step in because the organisers did not have a permit to hold the festival in public. He also said the police had banned the event to safeguard public order after receiving several reports against it. Khalid added that the police were investigating the matter under section 298A of the Penal Code and section 27A(1)(c) of the Police Act and had linked Bersih head Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan to the movement. Seksualiti Merdeka’s organisers have called off all public events in the interests of participants’ safety as they seek a meeting with the Inspector-General of Police to clarify the festival’s objectives.

Good article and open minded view, barring the Bar Council’s failure to mention below 3 points related to Human Rights Charter Articles 1, 8 and 18 amongst others unmentioned but covered elsewhere in this WordPress site you are currently reading.
Point 1 :  Human Rights Charter Article 8
Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law – that Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee left (conveniently?) unmentioned.
That in a true democracy, not only are freedoms for all regardless of majority or minority, all laws and articles of constitution not in line with the UNHRC must be **amended immediately** (750K funerals for CMs are not in line with the UNHRC, nor is Forced Military Conscription) as Malaysia is a signatory of the UNHCR, and a Human Rights Council member to boot . . . ) and thus legally if not morally bound to reflect all UNHCR articles in law and constitition which amount to abuses like Section 377B or the Vices and Gaming Laws which infringe on non-Muslim rights to gaming or adult industry entertainments.
The Bar Council needs to speak in terms (actually thy should already be suing but probably are fearful so they do not try harder or think clearer and speak louder) that do not allude to the ‘un-amendability’ of the law or constitution as new Human Rights are affirmed, discovered and espoused by the rest of the world. The Judiciary can also do no less than to apply this principle as well. Bumiputra APARTHEID is against the intent of the UNHCR and cannot be tolerated. The Special Malay Privileges as granted by the Reid Commission (now called Bumiputra) were intended to last 15 years not 50, nor to be used as a gravy train by any single clique within any political party hiding behind a multiracial coalition of self serving mouth pieces (declare the assets of all ‘in power’ and redistribute that wealth – EVERY Malaysian could be a millionaire) to justify continued abuse of EQUALITY of Humanity. Human Rights Charter
Point 2 : Human Rights Charter  Article 1
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Politicians who are against equality and democracy will have to be voted out or Malaysia will be a pariah among other nations by oppression of the Human Rights as guaranteed in the UNHCR (nominally backed by NATO and SCO) and modern world. All politicians identified as nepotistic (vested interest), GLC linked (conflict of interest), writing Vehicular-AP type laws, colluding with contractors voa loopholes in laws they refuse to address are all against the principles of the UNHCR and must be identified and considered enemies of the state, to be stripped of their wealth and ability to uphold flawed and easily abused laws and constitutions they refuse to address. Address the APARTHEID of Bumiputra Bar Council !
Point 3 : Human Rights Charter Article 18
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Address the abolishment of Section 377B. Abolish the Syariah punishments and punitive treatment for Apostasy (this one should be done by Malays who are deprived the right to freedom of religion because non-Muslims and non-Malays while afflicted with APARTHEID from Bumiputra policies and having right to demand equality, have no business interfering with Muslim or Malay issues that do not affect them . . . ).

Judicial diversity creates confidence (Not by This Article It Doesn’t) – by Roger Tan – 13th November 2011

In Uncategorized on January 16, 2012 at 10:39 am
(The Star Paper) Judicial diversity and meritocracy should go hand in hand. A judiciary that does not reflect society’s diversity will ultimately lose the confidence of that society. ENGLAND’S senior judiciary has often been described as “pale, male and stale” – that is a white, male-dominated bench. This is understandable because despite many calls over the years for more diversity in judicial appointments, women and ethnic minorities are still sorely under-represented in the highest echelons of England’s judiciary.
Today, Lady Brenda Hale still remains the sole woman justice out of 12 places in the highest court of the United Kingdom, now known as the Supreme Court. First appointed to the House of Lords as a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary (Law Lord) on Jan 12, 2004, she was reappointed to the new Supreme Court when it replaced the House of Lords in 2009. In October this year, Rabinder Singh became the first Sikh, a non-white, to be appointed a High Court judge of England and Wales. There is no law lord from an ethnic minority. This year two more white men, Jonathan Sumption, QC and Lord Justice Wilson, were appointed to the Supreme Court. Holding court: Former Chief Justice Tan Sri Zaki Azmi (front row, second from left) chairing a meeting of judges from Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam. The Judicial Appointments Commission should always encourage a diverse judiciary which is more representative of the make-up of our country. — Bernama
The President of the Supreme Court, Lord Phillips, did remark recently that he would like the Supreme Court to be 50/50 men and women from the point of perception, but he stressed that it was more important to consider judicial selections based on merit. Lord Hope, the Deputy President, was more hopeful, however. “It’s a great mistake to rush it forward and say that diversity must prevail over merit. The system depends on skilled people who can actually do the job and we can’t afford to have passengers here, just in the name of diversity,” he said. But is this insistence on merit reasonable when actually it is a non-issue? Or is it simply an excuse not to effect judicial diversity speedily? If so, then perhaps the very definition of what is merit should be re-examined. In fact, leading the call for more women and ethnic minority judges in the courts is none other than Hale herself. She said she was rather tired of being repeatedly told that change was “a matter of time”, but change never came. Recently, Hale told the House of Lords constitution committee that “the lack of diversity on the bench is a constitutional issue”.
On Nov 3, the Guardian newspaper reported Hale as arguing before the committee that judges would approach issues differently based on their background, and that a lack of diversity could also change the substantive results of cases (“Resistance to diversity among judges is misguided”). She added that in “disputed points you need a diversity of perspectives and life experiences to get the possible results”, particularly how the gender of justices would matter in cases such as child-birth and rape. In fact, this argument that diversity enriches judicial decision-making and that the outcome of a case is often influenced by a judge’s background is not new. In 1981, Professor J.A. Griffiths wrote in The Politics of Judiciary that English judges were neither entirely objective nor neutral in their decisions because their decisions often reflected their own political outlook and attitude. For Malaysia, the above issues are even more relevant as ours is a multi-racial, multi-religious and polyglot society. So how does Malaysia fare with judicial diversity? Is ours a more representative bench? The table shows the racial composition and gender of the judges in our superior courts. As the table shows, there is a fair number of women and non-Malay judges at the High Court level, but not in the appellate courts. In fact, since Merdeka, only one white, two Chinese, one Indian and one woman were appointed to head the High Court of Malaya.
They were, respectively, Tun James Beveridge Thomson (1957-1963); Tan Sri Ong Hock Thye (1968-1973) and Tan Sri Gunn Chit Tuan (1992-1994); Tan Sri Sarwan Singh Gill (1974-1979); and Tan Sri Siti Norma Yaakob (2004-2006). Further, the members of our Judicial Appointments Commission comprise six Malays, one Chinese, one Indian and one east Malaysia bumiputra, and only one of the nine members is a woman. To my mind, the situation could be due to a dearth of non-Malays in the Judicial and Legal Services, but overall women still outnumber men in this sector. Currently, in respect of Sessions Court judges, there are 119 Malays (56 are women), two Chinese (women), five Indians (three are women), nine east Malaysia bumiputras (four are women) and one Others (a woman). For Magistrates, there are 139 Malays (84 are women), two Chinese (men), one Indian (woman) and four east Malaysia bumiputras (all men). However, there are probably more non-Malays serving in the Attorney General’s Chambers.
But if other judicial officers such as deputy and assistant registrars are added, women would almost double men. This is not a new phenomenon as, in the last two years, women have doubled the number of men entering the legal profession. Of course, non-Malay law graduates prefer to enter the legal profession rather than join the Judicial and Legal Services with the view, whether rightly or wrongly, that private practice is more lucrative. In fact, with the revised remuneration scheme, the current basic pay of a magistrate who is a fresh law graduate is RM1989.45 (with additional perks worth about RM1,000 depending on the location where the magistrate serves). This, of course, is far better off than his predecessor in earlier days, like in the early 1980s when a magistrate’s basic pay was only about RM1,050. In any event, if the reason for under-representation in the appellate judiciary by non-Malays is due to a lack of meritorious candidates in the Judicial and Legal Services, then resort should be had to the pool of meritorious candidates among senior members of the Bar just like in the case of Jonathan Sumption, QC who recently made history by being the first lawyer to be elevated directly to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. Having said that, let no one mistake me as advocating a quota system or positive discrimination on the grounds of gender, race and religion in judicial appointments because that would go against Article 8(2) of the Federal Constitution. I am also mindful of the views expressed by some women judges themselves, such as the former justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Justice Claire L’Heureux-Dubé.
She argued that it was not enough to have simply more women or minorities on the bench. “What we need”, as she was quoted by Australian judge, Justice McHugh, “is a change in attitudes, not simply a change in chromosomes.” I disagree. If there exists a total absence or a huge disproportionate presence of women and minorities at appellate courts, something must be wrong somewhere. It is my considered opinion that the Judicial Appointments Commission should always encourage a diverse judiciary which is more representative of the make-up of our country. We must also correct any perception that our judges, who are the arbiters of civil laws, are not fair and independent especially when they adjudicate upon sensitive issues such as race and religion. It follows that who we appoint to the seat of justice is a matter of life and death.
As one of America’s finest trial lawyers, Gerry Spence, put it so trenchantly: “Who are these judges who wield such power over us, a power reserved for God? Who are these mere humans with the power to wrest children from their mothers and to condemn men to death or cage them like beasts in penitentiaries? Who possesses the power to strip us of our professions, our possessions, our very lives? “They make law. They may take away your wife or your good name or your freedom or your fortune or your life. They are omnipotent. And the question is: To whom have we so carelessly granted that power? Are they the kind who would understand you, who from their experiences would know something of the fears and struggles you have faced? Will they care about you or about justice?”
It is, therefore, my honest view that judicial diversity and meritocracy should go hand in hand because a judiciary which does not reflect the society’s diversity will ultimately lose the confidence of that society. In other words, the strength of any judiciary is primarily dependent on public confidence even if seated on the bench are monolithic judges who are most meritorious. This is achievable if there is the political will, and one only need to look at how successfully Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama did in bringing diversity to the American judiciary.

Nice title and the front 70% of this article is meaningful to a point (excepting the ‘bodekist’ name dropping) , however the remaining 30% (much like Bumiputra APARTHEID policy) is self interested/self serving sycophantic/propagandist drivel. Roger Tan’s article is fine up to the below points.
1) We must also correct any perception that our judges, who are the arbiters of civil laws, are not fair and independent especially when they adjudicate upon sensitive issues such as race and religion. A blatant lie.
NO. We citizens CANNOT correct any perception that our judges are not fair and independent so long as 2 classes of citizenship remain in the form of APARTHEID laws and APARTHEID constitution. The Judiciary should read Article 1 of the Human Rights Charter and know that the Reid Commission recommended 15 years of Special Privileges which unconscionably have been extended to 50+ years with no review as legally promised and implicit in the ‘Social Contract’.  The Judiciary (staffed by Malays mostly) itself has in a display of lack of legal ethics NOT demanded such a review and allowed massive abuses and unconstitutional laws like the Vehicular-AP to pass in Parliament. How can our judges be considered fair and independent? What the reason for this unjustified defense and fetting of a Judiciary which fails it’s duties? For the Judiciary to remain in compliance with the UN, there can only be EQUALITY of all citizens, which means ending the APARTHEID of Bumiputra in it’s entiity in all articless of constitution and laws.
2) It follows that who we appoint to the seat of justice is a matter of life and death. As one of America’s finest trial lawyers, Gerry Spence, put it so trenchantly: “Who are these judges who wield such power over us, a power reserved for God? Who are these mere humans with the power to wrest children from their mothers and to condemn men to death or cage them like beasts in penitentiaries? Who possesses the power to strip us of our professions, our possessions, our very lives? “They make law. They may take away your wife or your good name or your freedom or your fortune or your life. They are omnipotent. And the question is: To whom have we so carelessly granted that power? Are they the kind who would understand you, who from their experiences would know something of the fears and struggles you have faced? Will they care about you or about justice?” It is, therefore, my honest view that judicial diversity and meritocracy should go hand in hand because a judiciary which does not reflect the society’s diversity will ultimately lose the confidence of that society.
NO again. Your honest view Roger Tan is less than honest by my refutation in point 1, obfuscates the dishonesty of the Judiciary with generalizations and rapid shifts in subject matter, superficially glossing over severe abuses than addressing them. You are a propagandist with a degree, and an ex-member of the Bar Council.  The Bar if honest at all, should suspend all members refusing to address the issue of Bumiputra APARTHEID, of unconstitutional and illegal by any world standard Vehicular-AP or forced Military Conscriptions, of Toll Concessions which have profited off the people no end, of the ILLEGAL denial of non-Muslims access to Gambling venues/games other than 4D, ILLEGAL denial of non-Muslims to legal protections of Adult Services industry/venues/adult services workers, the effective abolition of the right to APOSTASY to our Muslim citizens to choose their own faith. Bar Council has remained inactive and silent on all of the above against UN Human Rights Articles 1, 8 and 18, and more. It is good though that Roger Tan (obviously a not too evident propagandist for fascism and dictatorship, indirect abettor for theocracy), is an ex-member of the Bar Council.
3) In other words, the strength of any judiciary is primarily dependent on public confidence even if seated on the bench are monolithic judges who are most meritorious. This is achievable if there is the political will, and one only need to look at how successfully Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama did in bringing diversity to the American judiciary.
Ends with platitudes and name-dropping, with no mention of the above points, end with no solution at all. Is this what the Bar Council is now? An article mill? A TK.Koh-like (Oh look an NLP – TEAM KILLER KOH . . .) sycophant? A simple form with YES/NO boxes on the above issues could decide which Bar Council / Judiciary members may be allowed to remain in Bar Council by sheer right of objectivity uncoloured by whatever moral lenses which impinge on the freedom of Humanity via the mediocrity of social stature bias :
7 Point Acid Test To Objectivity of Legal Professionals : A YES/NO Questionairre
1) End APARTHEID of Bumiputra
2) End Forced Military Conscription
3) End Vehicular-AP
4) End punishment for APOSTASY (must be handled by a Malay, as this is racially sensitive)
5) Gaming Licenses to be non-mega franchise based and to include entire Gamut of Gaming Varieties not just 4D
6) Endorse Adult Services Industry Venues/Red Light District Zoning (for non-Muslims)
7) Right to Bear Arms (with appropriate safeguards)
The entirety of Malaysian legal ‘fraternity’s’ attitudes are dishonest and disgustingly ambivalent, and not up to par or in tandem with UNHCR standards and should be blackballed by the legal fraternity worldwide for failing to ensure JUSTICE and protection for citizens has been ensured. The Judiciary and Bar Council are the check and balance against Government/Parliament to ensure, must ensure :
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
But most Bar Council Members, Judiciary, legal professionals would likely be disbarred in a truly HONEST government. The taxpayers, especially the afflicted minority citizens paid you to ensure the above which you have not even for UNHCR Article 1 on EQUALITY.
Do your job or resign, not hide behind propagandists to justify your inaction and abettment of institutionalised disenfranchisement, harm legalized via law and tacit approval of the *MALAYSIAN* legal fraternity! Shame on the Judiciary, shame on the Bar Council, shame on the propagandists ! End the APARTHEID of Bumiputra, ensure/protect the FREEDOMS of ALL citizens ! The Star should not publish such drivel (or at least refute openly such articles) if Star is to be respected as a newspaper.

Car modding in Singapore hits a road bump

It’s no longer so easy to pimp your ride these days, as mrbrown finds out – by mrbrown 25 March, 2010 It’s not so Fast and Furious on the streets of Singapore, but there are still “modders” who will do anything to get some street cred. There goes the “Bao Pass Scheme” for vehicle inspections, said my buddy, Ryan, when I told him that the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) had begun a probe on vehicle inspectors for bribery. “Bao Pass” means “Sure to Pass Inspection”. According to news reports, the vehicle inspectors were suspected of closing one eye (and sometimes even both) to illegally modified cars. Car modification is very popular here, despite the almost draconian laws we have in Singapore against any kind of Boy Racer mods. I believe the popularity of modding one’s car comes from the sheer price of cars here. I mean, if you paid what is the GDP of a small Third World country for your ride, wouldn’t you want to customize it to your tastes? After all, you are going to be paying off that car loan for the next seven to 10 years of your life. What’s a few thousand more dollars for a bad-boy exhaust or tinted windows, right? But this is Singapore and we have rules and rules must be followed or the sky will fall and the space-time continuum will rupture, thereby unleashing anti-matter that will consume our very souls. I laugh at the things I used to do to my car, when I owned one. Sport rims, spoilers, exhausts big enough to stuff a small animal into… all the fun stuff a young man spends his hard-earned money on. I remember my army mates telling me about their cars.

One chap had a Daihatsu Charade or Toyota Starlet, I can’t remember which, and the engine was upgraded from a 1.3 liter model to a 1.5 liter one. I asked him how it passed inspection and he laughed, saying his mechanic would swap out the illegal engine with the correct one before its once-a-year inspection. In Malaysia, things seem somewhat looser. I knew of a relative who was driving a Malaysia Jaguar with a Honda Accord engine inside. Proton cars are often heavily modified there. Proton Wiras, for instance, are often fitted with Mitsubishi Evo III, or even IV and V, engines. I doubt if many modders consider whether their car chassis can take the additional stresses from a more powerful engine. I bet they forget about the brakes too. ‘As long as my car can fly like a bullet, I’ll worry about whether I can stop later,’ seems to be the thinking. I wonder how Singapore’s cops cottoned on to the shenanigans of the vehicle inspections. Maybe they started spotting too many Subaru WRXs with gigantic exhaust pipes that looked illegal but the owners still managed to present an inspection certificate that says it is an approved exhaust pipe. “Mister, are you sure this exhaust pipe is legal?” a cop may have asked. “Of course, officer! I got cert! See?” the driver may have cheerfully waved. “I have never heard of a Subeeru exhaust pipe brand though.” “Oh, that is their subsidiary! My car is a special edition Subeeru WXY!” In the old days, any kind of exhaust pipe modification was illegal. Things were simpler. A cop saw your oversized exhaust (or he heard it first) and it was an immediate fine. You had to pay to get it replaced with the original part, and you had to pay to send it for re-inspection too. These days, things are more complicated. Some aftermarket upgrades are allowed, as long as they are on the approved list, and not every police officer can tell if that exhaust pipe is kosher or not, unless he is also a car enthusiast. Also, in the old days, tinting of windows was not allowed. Then people pointed out that having these fancy films on car windows could cut down on heat coming in, and reduce the car’s air-conditioner consumption. To save the earth, tinting was thus allowed, as long as the rear windscreen and windows allowed at least 25% of light to come through, and for the front windscreen and windows, 70%. Many car owners interpreted this as “I can tint the windows as dark as humanly possible” and soon, cars with black windows could be seen on the roads (some with curtains too, for added, ahem, privacy).

One guy interviewed by the papers said darker windows made his black car look nicer. Completely transparent windows spoiled the look, he said, while admitting in the same breath that it did kind of hamper his ability to see clearly at night. It just took him a few nights to get used to driving in the dark. It is almost Darwinian, this train of thought.

Perhaps drivers of such cars can hang a sign outside their vehicles just after their tinted window upgrade: “Driver may not be able to see you for the next few nights”. That way pedestrians can know to stay away. I am told that tinted windows were not allowed in Hong Kong in the past, for different reasons. Police officers would not be able to tell if they were approaching a dark-windowed car filled with Secret Society gangsters armed to the teeth. I am sure that after this vehicle inspector corruption probe, Singapore roads will see fewer cars with spoilers that look like they came from the wings of a Boeing 747 or headlamps bright enough to melt glass. Maybe drivers of illegally modified Singaporean cars can consider parking their cars across the Causeway. They can hang out with the Brudderhood of Modified Protons, Malaysia Chapter. Better be careful, their 300bhp Proton “Evo III”s may kick your asses. Just don’t challenge them to stopping.

URGENT MESSAGE modified vehicle laws bad

Some of you may not know that there are changes to modified vehicle laws that are about to happen in W.A, this has not been publicised hardly at all, (GEE I WONDER WHY THAT IS? the clincher is that we only have till april 9th then its all over to have any say in the matter. basically they are trying to restrict what we have already even further, the eastern state laws are to fall in line with this also at a later date, so everybody has somethig to loose here. if you are building or contemplating building a modified car you really need to read this urgently as they can change their mind if your car can be registered by the time you have completed it. this also affects people with cars that are already modified as it states a car can be recalled for inspection at any time and can be deemed unregisterable even if engineered. the mongrels are taking away our right to drive what we like and another peice of our freedom that our diggers gave their lives for. please dont think SHE’LL BE RIGHT! thats the thinking thats got this country into the mess its already in now. please take the time to read up on this matter, this will also have an impact on the performance and aftermarket car industry, so if you are in that line of buisiness i strongly sugest you read the info suppied and voice your opinion. we cant let them get away with this. info and links are below. they dont want modified cars on the road full stop.

Please back us up ad lets do something about it while we can. thankyou. THIS IS CRITICAL TO THE FUTURE OF MODIFIED CARS. Have a good easter in your pride and joy because next easter things could be alot different. This quote below is from http://www.pharosalex.com.au/pages/33achome.html

Note: Builders, modifiers and owners of vehicles need to be aware that compliance with this NCOP does not guarantee that a vehicle will be acceptable for registration in the case of an ICV or for continued registration in the case of a modified registered production vehicle. If, for example, an ICV submitted for approval does not handle or brake satisfactorily or has any other feature that renders the vehicle unsafe or not roadworthy, it is most unlikely that it will be accepted for registration. It is also important that builders and owners keep abreast of changes to legislation and vehicle registration policy in their jurisdiction, particularly in cases where a project is expected to take some years to complete. Changes to legislation before a vehicle is completed may mean that certain vehicles cannot be registered without appropriate modifications. Similarly, regulations pertaining to vehicle modifications, vehicle standards or registration policy may change causing certain vehicle modifications to become unacceptable in the future. Take this how you choose, but the way i see it, should they choose, that project your building, V8, 4 linked, tubbed etc could well become a white elephant and never see registration, let alone the road. This has already had an impact on one of my projects, due to track widths and 4 link. Eastern staters, in the not too distant future could well be in the same position we sandgropers in W.A are already. How about this for an example… MAXIMUM RIM SIZE FX – HR 5.85 inches. ( but out of the generousity of their hearts they will allow 6 inches ) REGARDLESS WHETHER FULLY ENGINEERED OR NOT, OR SUPSENSION REDESIGNED, ALL TRACK WIDTHS NOT TO EXCEED 25MM GREATER THAN ORIGINAL SPECS, NO TOLERANCE FOR UNDERTRACK.

Rediculous Australian Laws / Dumb Laws in Australia

Why does this law exist? Children may not purchase cigarettes, but they may smoke them. You may never leave your car keys in an unattended vehicle. It is illegal to walk on the right hand side of a footpath. Under Australian Communications Authority (ACA) regulations, a modem can’t pick up on the first ring. Taxi cabs are required to carry a bale of hay in the trunk. Bars are required to stable, water and feed the horses of their patrons. The legal age for straight sex is 16, unless the person is in the care/custody of the older person, in which case it is 18. Only licensed electricians may change a light bulb. It is illegal to wear hot pink pants after midday Sunday. You must have a neck to knee swimsuit in order to swim at Brighton Beach. Until the Port Arthur Killings it was legal to own an AK-47 but not legal to be gay. Lawmakers are proposing a new law that will not allow anyone to come closer than 100 meters from a dead whale’s carcass. It is illegal to roam the streets wearing black clothes, felt shoes and black shoe polish on your face as these items are the tools of a cat burgular. It is illegal to walk on the right hand side of a footpath. Bars are required to stable, water and feed the horses of their patrons. Only licensed electricians may change a light bulb. It is illegal to wear hot pink pants after midday Sunday. You must have a neck to knee swimsuit in order to swim at Brighton Beach. It is illegal to drive straight into your driveway, you’re meant to reverse in and drive out straight. QLD Taxi’s must carry a bale of hay in the boot at all times.

In terms of vehicles : Bad Government, Politicians To Avoid –

Collusion on design of vehicles to cause higher petrol usage. While vehicles gotten larger generally, the wheels remain undersized. Now we know it costs more energy and petrol to run a vehicle on smaller wheels, so consider what the manufacturers intend when they build vehicles with small wheels rather than wheels as large as possible . . . then consider that vehicles may not need 1000s of ccs to run but are over powered intentionally to cost more in fuel consumption again . . . or that the spare parts factories tend to stop making spare parts in as soon as 10-15 years so that owners are forced to buy entire new cars. This way further profits are available and people have to keep on upgrading to the newest models. The law colludes on this clearly when Toyota Priuses or Camrys are imported by local governments who’s term limitless functionaries and term limitless politicians have relatives or proxies that own car dealerships or franchises instead ogf buying local brands – in a form of massive collusion and cronyism. Clear enough how to vote and who not to vote for?

Current laws on car modifications too strict, say enthusiasts Mon, Jul 26, 2010 The Brunei Times/Asia News Network BRUNEI, MUARA

Some local car enthusiasts expressed their dissatisfaction over the strict rules on car modifications currently being imposed after already spending a fortune on modifying their cars. According to a report last year, the Land Transport Department (LTD) is still in the process of formulating a general guideline on the limits of car modifications in Brunei. Twenty-four-year-old self-employed Jordan Wong was one of several car enthusiasts The Brunei Times spoke to get their opinion on the current strict laws of car modifications. He said: “In other countries, car modifications are easily approved by the authorities. For example, in Perth, they just need to pay around $20 to $30 and will get it approved as long as it’s safe.”

Comments by Bruneian Car Modders :

He added: “Brunei is a car-loving nation and there are a lot of people who don’t have anything to spend their money on (aka Brunei = boring and oppressed), so they spend it on their cars. It’s just like a hobby to them but the LTD doesn’t allow anything to be modified. They catch almost every single modified thing on the car.” Wong who has spent around $12,000 to modify his car said: “I don’t understand why even window tinting is not allowed in a hot country such as Brunei. And if someone wants to tint his car, he will need to have it go through test reports from the British or Japanese Institute of Standards which is such a troublesome procedure. Moreover, in Brunei, car is our main mode of transport and driving around under the strong UV sunlight can cause skin cancer.” He said: “I’ve actually been caught for body kit on my car. But I don’t understand why they even catch when it’s not even a safety issue.”

Another enthusiast, a 33-year-old owner of a modified Nissan car, said that Brunei’s law on car modifications was too strict. “It doesn’t allow us to do anything to our car. Our car is just like another member of the family we have to care about,” said Saiful Ahmad. “I’ve even asked the LTD about what can be modified and they told me that even if I change my car stereo without consent from the department, it will be considered illegal,” said the government worker. “My car is a reflection of who I am. It’s just like how you dress. You want to wear something that you like and be comfortable in it.” “Since I’ve already spent so much money to buy a car, I want to make it unique. When I see my car beside another same car model, I want to feel special.”

The government worker has spent about $5,000 on car cosmetics. Like many others, a 19-year-old restaurant owner who would only give his name as Wee, also thinks that the law is too strict but doesn’t want to modify his car. Wee, whose restaurant is in Gadong, said: “I’m willing to spend a lot of money for car modification if the law permits since I don’t have anything else to spend my money on in Brunei. It’s better than spending money on drugs and alcohol.” Declining to be named, a self-employed enthusiast who also deals in car accessories, said: “If the law is more lenient, then we can bring in more updated car accessories more frequently.  There is a ready market for it in Brunei. These accessories are not that expensive and can make your car more appealing as they are not in the way of safety.” The self-employed further said it will lead a driver to maintain his car better which can also help reduce pollution and improve safety. However, a female private sector employee said: “Car modification is fine but there’s a limit as to what can be modified. For instance, those cars with the blinding lights are an annoyance to other drivers. It’s worse for older drivers who are not able to see other cars passing by with those bright lights shining on their eyes.” The 25-year-old , who only wants to be known as Tan, thinks that the Land Transport Department needs to quicken their process of introducing the new guideline on car modifications. “There are still so many illegally modified cars around, and especially those with the loud engines… They are just causing more noise pollution.”

1) F*ck this Labor government… F*ck Kevin Rudd and F*ck the minister for environment Penny Wong… If they had it their way we’d all be driving Toyota Priueses.. Bastards.

@AgreeToDisagree : There is import collusion between the car company, in this case Toyota, and government via the MP for certain. Vote ANY MP who will not promise to make drop all those oppressive laws BEFORE voting for the bastards and bitches.

2) In Malaysia, things seem somewhat looser. I knew of a relative who was driving a Malaysia Jaguar with a Honda Accord engine inside. Proton cars are often heavily modified there.

Proton Wiras, for instance, are often fitted with Mitsubishi Evo III, or even IV and V, engines.

@AgreeToDisagree : There does seem to be a good understanding of the car modder culture but the guidelines in the JPJ seem quite narrow. Perhaps they should be adapted to these below modified vehicles so that modders can have more freedom. There is little enough freedom here with gambling venues limited to 4D and no legal adult services (except the informal ones that operate under the official radar or mere VIP clubs which are too costly for the working class Johns).

3) However, a female private sector employee said: “Car modification is fine but there’s a limit as to what can be modified. For instance, those cars with the blinding lights are an annoyance to other drivers. It’s worse for older drivers who are not able to see other cars passing by with those bright lights shining on their eyes.”

@AgreeToDisagree : Do take care to point those beams on the ground.

4) “There are still so many illegally modified cars around, and especially those with the loud engines… They are just causing more noise pollution.”

@AgreeToDisagree : These loud engine modders could still be allowed to drive but could be given tickets if in an obviously residential zone. The police could try issuing a map for loud engine suitable zones.

5) Car modification is very popular here, despite the almost draconian laws we have in Singapore against any kind of Boy Racer mods. I believe the popularity of modding one’s car comes from the sheer price of cars here. I mean, if you paid what is the GDP of a small Third World country for your ride, wouldn’t you want to customize it to your tastes? But this is Singapore and we have rules and rules must be followed or the sky will fall and the space-time continuum will rupture, thereby unleashing anti-matter that will consume our very souls.

@AgreeToDisagree : Hey morons, stop waxing lyrical about space-time or bandying about terms like ‘Bao Pass‘ and put a stop to this b.s. and act – **Vote an MP who will legalise cheaper or abolish COEs or abolish or lower Import Taxes instead of complaining**.  Run for election even if no MP wants to help the people and continue things like COE. Consume the MPs souls instead. Don’t speak as if sheer price of cars or import taxes is written in stone. It can be cheap as the rest of the ‘3rd World’ if you choose the right MPs or run as MP. Obviously Singaporeans have not been choosing their MPs correctly despite their education. Or is it brainwashing that occured?

Try the below links for an idea of what is probably minimal to a car modder, heck maybe all cars will also be sea worthy as well in the future, have VTOL jets fitted so the citizens can fly off and leave Orwell-land behind. The below examples should be legal in the next few weeks or by the next election at most – otherwise vote those Toyota Prius loving creeps to hell, throw them out of the country for causing such distress for what is likely a Human Right even :

Watch Mad Max for some ideas then take a look at Libyan Rebel Footage and consider Right to Bear Arms as well (though firing in a crowded street should get an immediate ticket, but when the traffic is negligible – no harm in firing away like those fighters do out of sheer exuberance for life. Libyan lawmakers, write the above car modding issues into law, and I and millions of car modders will migrate to Libya posthaste when things have settled down . . . ). Any country which does not allow cars or modifications or variants of the same like these to go on the road, or demand COE, should see a mass exodus of voters from their current MPs who do decide if the modifications are allowed. Who knows, countries like Pakistan, Iran and even Russia might be more lax than the above Orwellian nations overall, at least having no opinion except when an accident is caused by a falling part or somesuch or someone harmed by misfiring weapons.

Scenario Case Study in Difference Between Orwellian States and 3rd World States :

Mortar goes off barely misses a vehicle . . .  In Afghanistan or Somalia or Libya etc. : Brown/black skinned nappy headed sand n1gg3r gets out of crappy camo painted (zebra/cow/giraffe print?) car with AA gun mounted on top. ‘A-hamdulah hamdula  . . .  (Translated : Oops sorry about that glancing mortar strike, will this crock of camel’s milk and a few ripe poppies to compensate that cracked car window be alright?) Soldiers milling around in khaki uniform ignore entire exchange. Both parties depart amicably . . . as opposed to :

Cherry bomb set off by kid goes off . . . in England, Australia or Singapore : People screaming in dramatic faux-histrionics . . . then swarming black helicopters and black SUVs with storm troopers and tasers AND any nursing mothers in the area suing for millions, metrosexuals who had lost their sh1t (literally) scraped their nail polish whatever and had PTSD nightmares for months later suing the state for 100s of millions in court cases. Court cases last for YEARS in a media circus that generates 10 times the GDP of a 3rd world country that taxpayers have to pay to the Court and Prison system and colluding/profiteering supplier chain. As a spin off, curfews (new fines!) on children entering parks are born, prohibition on cherry coke is reintroduced (somehow a psychiatrist decides it incites ‘Cherry Bomb’ use) , which will justify more taxes on ‘dangerous’ implements like plastic baby food spatulas deemed ‘too sharp around the edges and are reclassified as weapons’. . . Cherry commodities markets suddenly need to sue the state for political incorrectness by using the words ‘cherry’ and ‘bomb’ on media causing fruit related stocks to fall, leading to a ban on fruits being served in schools that lead to suppliers of foods other than fruits making massive profits which lead to Brawdo’s Thirst Mutilator replacing fruits as a dietary requirement due to various new lawsuits and fruit prohibitions . . . you get the idea?

USA is still paying the judicial and prison system and dealing with copycating spin offs on more lawsuits, and ‘Cherry Bomb’ kid has become a JFK assassin type urban legend . . . which if playacted on halloween can result in arrests and further lawsuits . . . meanwhile back in 3rd world the same individuals who were in that accident still carry their stingers and AKs, and probably expanded their roadside stall businesses a little bit more probably are selling fruits that the same fruit related companies in lawsuits have moved to the 3rd world to based plantations from to avoid special taxes on ‘fruits’ . . . while term limitless officials and politicians become as rich as ‘Mittens’ or ‘Iceberg’ . . . The First World fails . . .

Pre-wussification USA (and they were already pussy enough . . .)

So much for the ‘Free World’ and ‘First World’ like Singapore, Australia and USA, ‘Orwell Fever’ has gotten hold of them. Citizens please vote properly or just migrate to a freer country. They’ve begun to take the citizens for granted and are nepotistic and abuse laws to control people rather than serve them. The irony is that the idiot voters who complain about high taxes or property assessments don’t see to know that with the right MP voted in, income tax could be ZERO and they could mod cars into mobile homes or build homes on land without invasive Municipal Council abuse and need for approval.

Whats to approve? It’s your damn land and your damn money. If you want to build a 1000 ft tall penis or a 1000 ft wide vagina on your land it’s your damn business. The only flaw was that the MP you voted was an ars3hol3 who refuses to amend those invasive laws ! So think and ask clearly what your candidate intends for or against you then vote accordingly. Whats wrong with you voters? Why are you tolerating all this invasive b.s.?

See a nepotist? A plutocrat? A racist? A religious fundamentalist? Term limitless politician? Big business linked car importer? ALL UNVOTABLE.

General Voting Cautionary (Ad Nauseum)

. . . Regarding Malaysian Candidacy Problems from Plutocrat Paradigm Candidacy Fees with MPs that refuse to Lower Election Deposits . . .

Make sure you know what you are voting for. In Malaysia’s case I keep hearing them say, it’s too expensive to run for candidacy! Then the solution is to ONLY and SPECIFICALLY vote for an MP that will **Lower the Election deposit from 15,000 to 150**! This country is for all and not just the rich. The MPs or candidates who refuse to lower the deposit are those who are preventing many hardworking and honest folk who deserve to run for election and are UNVOTABLE! Under pro-plutocrat MPs who refuse to lower deposits the governmment becomes a plutocracy and eventually colludes with GLCs and big business to oppress the citizens. As the MP candidate to promise to lower the deposit on penalty of quitting the post in a time frame. Otherwise do not vote for that MP. DO NOT vote for candidates running for MPs and Assemblymen, even political parties who refuse to PROMISE to lower those deposits.

When in doubt, vote only for Joe Publics who are worth no more than 200K (or 20 million if you’re feeling generous), see the pledge/questionairre below and ask your MP candidate or Assemblyman candidate, current MP or Assemblyman to sign with a cam taking down the signing in the presence of as many media reporters or people as possible.

The above examples are no better than Malaysia’s refusal to abolish section 377B which has been distressing the LGBTIQ community here for ages. Or the apostasy Syariah Court laws that make choice of religion impossible for Malays. All Malays will be Muslims or they will los their Bumiputra Rights to become less than minorities as of now. That is an untenable situation that the Judiciary and Malay Lawyers in the Bar Council have neglected to address !

Even the Tunisians and Egyptians are smarter than Australians now despite being ‘3rd World’, and now they are freer because they were braver and more primal and righteous as a people.

Perhaps a ‘First World Spring’? Do you think if they modified their car anyone could demand they pay a fine? The could carry bazookas and fire AK47s all the way while riding into the next town without issue! THATS democracy!

Occupy (W)All Street(S) !!! Or at least vote by the above link’s pledge requirements. Kick those high MP or Assemblyman candidacy deposit maintaining, damn tax creating and tax raising hinderances to freedom and autonomy of mankind out of power, and strip their wealth if they are plutocrats who have profiteered of your fathers and grandfathers and now you and your  children !

What do you mean we can’t modify a car, have to pay for a registration paper to change the colour, make sales of vehicles illegal between 2 individuals without making the buyer and seller go through a DMV middlemen, or ‘ask permission’ from a group of people called Councillors (some of which are not even voted for in the 3rd world) to build an awning extension or build a house on your land without asking someone you voted for in an office first? Our life, our property, our money, our choice ! Vote the bastards to hell and stop being morons!

DO NOT vote for candidates running for MPs and Assemblymen, even political parties who refuse to PROMISE to lower those candidacy deposits.

DO NOT vote for candidates running for MPs and Assemblymen, even political parties who refuse to PROMISE to abolish Eminent Domain powers.

DO NOT vote for candidates running for MPs and Assemblymen, even political parties who refuse to PROMISE to grant Allodial Property Titles.

HK agents find $2.2M in illegal rhino horns‚ ivory – ASSOCIATED PRESS – 15th November 2011

In Uncategorized on January 16, 2012 at 10:30 am
Customs officers stand guard near smuggled ivory bracelets at the Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department in Hong Kong Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011. Hong Kong Customs seized a total of 33 ‘unmanifested’ rhino horns, 758 ivory chopsticks and 127 ivory bracelets, worth about HK$17 million ($2.23 million), inside a container shipped to Hong Kong from Cape Town, South Africa. HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong customs agents have confiscated a shipment of rhino horns and ivory worth about 17.4 million Hong Kong dollars ($2.2 million) — their biggest seizure of smuggled endangered species products, officials said Tuesday. Officials said they seized 33 rhino horns, 758 ivory chopsticks and 127 ivory bracelets concealed in a shipping container that arrived Monday at Hong Kong’s port from Cape Town, South Africa.
 
They would not name the container’s final destination. Customs agents X-rayed the container because its listed cargo — scrap plastic — raised a flag, said Acting Head of Ports and Maritime Command Lam Tak-fai. They found the rhino horns and ivory after peeling away layers of tinfoil, paper and plastic wrapped around the items. Wai-king Yik, a spokeswoman for the customs and excise department, said it was a record seizure of endangered species products for Hong Kong. The seizure tops one in August of $1.6 million worth of African ivory. Several rhino subspecies are believed to have recently become extinct. Rhino horns are prized by Vietnamese and Chinese who believe they can cure an array of ailments, and the horns can fetch up to $50,000 per pound (about $100,000 per kilogram). Some 190 pounds (86 kilograms) worth of rhino horns were found Monday by the Hong Kong officials, who said they would have required the deaths of around 17 rhinos. Lam told reporters it was a record seizure of rhino horns for Hong Kong. He said customs agents have occasionally found single rhino horns being smuggled in luggage by visitors to Hong Kong but this is the first time they have found a large batch hidden in a shipping container. No one has been arrested.
 
 
 
[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]
 
The buyers of rhino horn should buy live rhinos in healthy condition, and then breed in a natural conditions simulating environment for harvesting, then replace with faux horn (with clear marks that it is faux so it won’t be harrassed), then release into wild back into nature reserves in Africa. This repopulates the rhino and also ensures larger populations eventually as well as lowers rhino horn prices. The Chinese need to think long term, and should know that once the last rhino dies, there will be no more Rhino Horn products FOREVER. Breeders or medical inclined philanthropists should begin buying live rhinos and with that wealth breed them in reserves until there are herds millions strong in the wild for harvesting again.
 
Finally, be gentle with the animals, who knows it migth have been a relative in a past life who spent all their time ‘cockblocking’ you and was now reborn as a rhino to return that stolen ‘horn Qi’! Rhino Horns, like Elephant Tusks should be accessible to sponsors who feed and maintain the animals in a community and are only to be harvested upon NATURAL death at old age (care should be taken to ensure the horn’s material is protected (i.e. blunt – so that the animals won’t hurt each other too much if sparring – horn or tusk shaped adjustable steel sheaths with padding inside, sealed at the edges). This would mean that reservations of horns and tusks should span several decades and cost a few tens of thousands in a reserve at least until natural herd numbers are sufficiently large that such reservations will not be necessary. That first colony of 20 or 100 rhinos of various species could make the difference. Blue Ocean is better than Red Ocean. The Chinese are supposed to have patience, start exercising that patience now before the entire industry dies with the Rhino Species!

Herman Cain: “Manly” men like more pizza toppings – by Brian Montopoli – 14th November 2011

In Uncategorized on January 16, 2012 at 10:28 am
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said in an interview with GQ out Monday that one can tell how “manly” a man is by looking at how many toppings he puts on his pizza. He also said a pizza covered in vegetables is a “sissy pizza.” “The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is,” said the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Cain, laughing, then explained that “the more manly man is not afraid of abundance” before calling into question the manliness of a pizza with vegetables on it. “A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza,” Cain said.
 
The interview was conducted while Cain sampled a variety of pizzas at a Washington restaurant in mid-October, before Politico first reported Oct. 30 that Cain had been accused of sexual harassment more than a decade ago. At one point, he said he preferred a pie with arugula on it, prompting an interviewer to say “one would think that you’d brand that one the sissiest pizza of them all.” “Well, you didn’t let me finish answering the question the first time!” Cain responded, though the interview transcript does not suggest he was cut off. “It’s not only abundance; it’s taste. Okay? It’s taste.” Later, when a pizza covered in meat was brought to the table, Cain exclaimed, “NOW THAT’S A MANLY-LOOKING PIZZA!!”
 
Those were not the only food-related comments Cain made in the interview. Cain has compared himself to black walnut ice cream; asked what flavor Mitt Romney would be, Cain responded, “just plain vanilla.” He went on to call Rick Perry “rocky road” and deem Michele Bachmann “tutti-frutti” after initially insisting, when asked about Bachmann, “I’m not going to say it. I’m not going to say it.” “I know I’m going to get in trouble!,” Cain said after deeming Bachmann tutti-frutti. He went on to say that Ron Paul is “just not an ice cream flavor.” Cain said he would be “scared” if Paul was president and that he is “puzzled by some of his extreme statements, like ‘End the Fed!’ ‘End everything!'” He also criticized Perry, whom he suggested would not be an effective “communicator in chief,” and Rick Santorum, about whom he said, “I just don’t think that he would be an effective president.” As for Bachmann, Cain said he doesn’t “see great leadership qualities” in her. “I think she has some leadership qualities,” he said. “But I don’t see those qualities that are going to be strong enough to do many of the things that I know the next president of the United States is going to have to do.” Cain stressed his assessment is not because Bachmann is a woman, saying “Margaret Thatcher was a great leader. So that has nothing to do with her gender.”
 
At another point in the interview, Cain seemed to suggest he believes a majority of American Muslims are extremists, telling his interviewers, “I have had one very well known Muslim voice say to me directly that a majority of Muslims share the extremist views.” Asked if he agreed with that unnamed “Muslim voice” – whom Cain declined to identify other than saying “he is a very prominent voice in the Muslim community” – Cain said, “Yes, because that’s his community.” The interview comes in the wake of Saturday’s CBS News-sponsored Republican presidential debate as well as Cain’s wife Gloria’s first interview on the sexual harassment allegations against her husband, where she said the charges don’t ring true because Cain “totally respects women.”

Aha! Not black enough! Hey Herman, try ‘black sesame’, liquorice, or ‘squid ink’ icecream, if not the stereotypical and innuendo typical chocolate (none of that rubbish synthetic black food coloring on the other hand, is obtained by combining FD&C red 40, FD&C blue 1, FD&C yellow 5, phosphoric acid, water and sodium benzoate – more allusions to fake ‘blackness’). Black walnut icecream is not black at all, black walnut isn’t even black on the inside, and black walnut ice cream looks merely brownish/spotty with the body of the ice cream being white. To top it off sprinkle a few grains of REAL Ebony (Black Walnut Hull Powder – HULL only), granulated black tea leaves, and a few baby Black Scorpions/Black Tarantulas/Black Olives on the mix, the way the North-east Asians sprinkle Gold (Yellow, maybe saffron as well?!?) on some of their top class recipes. ‘Black Kale’, Black Hollyhock Alcea rosea nigra for garnish rather than mint.
 
There you go, REAL BLACK ice-cream and a potential slew of new dishes and agriculture based on ‘blackness’ that are truly black. NLP wise eating the above foods could as much ‘blacken’ as mayonnaise does. How about a maiyonaise based on the above that ‘turns’ those eating black as well? Try black infused noodles as well for good measure.
 
Research BLACK MILK from BLACK COWS with black teeth . . . Can you see the ‘white’ world shivering in fear now? It’s doesn’t always have to be overly fetishized, over used chocolate. But 100% with the meat/veggie, quantity of pizza issues. Finally, revive any pantheons of Black Skinned Gods and revert to Animism as well. The core of Black Animist religion should be in Africa itself not in some white country which colonized Africans in the past. How about an ALL African (The Real) BLACK STEEL rock-band for a start? The current BLACK STEEL band is all white and an NLP if anything. Would make for very interesting lawsuits about the name etc..
 
Then black diamonds, black gold for jewellery . . . http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/story/2006/11/22/metal-blackening.html
 
Also :
 
Black Pearl Pepper The more sun it receives, the blacker the leaves. It is extremely ornamental and edible. Pasilla Bajio When fresh, this pepper is called ‘chilaca;’ (careful and be aware that in Malay this is a cuss word ‘Celaka’) it is also known as ‘chile negro.’ 8 to 10 inch long cylindrical peppers are thin walled, and dark green ripening to dark brown. They have less than 250 Scoville units and are mainly used dried for their rich, smoky flavoring in sauces.
 
Purple Flash Striking flashes of bright purple foliage stand out against almost black leaves while new growth is splashed with creamy white. Small glossy black peppers are hot and although mainly ornamental, are also edible. Plants grow about a foot tall with a slightly wider spread and a layered habit. Perfect for containers or planting in gardens, Purple Flash survives summer heat while still making an exotic display.
 
Purple Serrano This is a beautiful purple-fruited version of Serrano. Peppers turn deep purple and are a little longer than those of regular Serrano, but with the same candle-flame shape. Plants are tall and branching with the fuzzy foliage typical of Serranos. Very hot and wonderful for salsas as well as many other dishes. 85 days.
 
Amaranth is not mentioned as it’s more purple than black with Flash and Serano more black than their purple names, so those were included.
 
Whats sticky and white that Brer Rabbit hasn’t fought? They made him fight a black one – self infliction NLP against the African-American community if anything (Ah Enid . . . and to think so many thought you were writing innocent children’s books . . . ) ! So redirect and invent ‘white tar’ (no reference to Naphthalene), use black chicken feathers for good measure! http://ethiopundit.blogspot.com/2005/05/tar-feathers-and-myths.html

PR MPs Are The Real Heroes By Exposing KR1M Scheme – YB Tony Pua (MP for Petaling Jaya)- 17 November 2011

In 1% tricks and traps, 3rd Force on January 16, 2012 at 10:25 am
Pakatan Rakyat members of parliament have over the past 2 weeks exposed the fact that many of the goods sold in Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) were not only substandard, illegal and unhealthy, many of these products were also not cheaper than products sold in existing hypermarkets. We were criticised by the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister, Ismail Sabri as being unfair by not comparing “apple to apple”, that is we should not be comparing 1Malaysia products with house-branded products from Tesco, Giant or Carrefour.
However, we have proven that the comparison was indeed not “apple to apple” for products such as the “oyster sauce” because the sauce from Tesco contained real oyster extracts, the 1Malaysia product had only flavouring and no oysters. At the same time, the comparison of 1Malaysia milk powder with that of Nestlé’s Nespray 1+ demonstrated not only that the former is a far inferior product but also the fact that the latter was 24% cheaper.
The 1Malaysia milk powder was short of at least 15 legally required vitamins and minerals, deficient in calcium and iron and provided a 802% overdose of Vitamin A, putting at real risk our very young children. Instead of facing up to the problems, IsmailSabri has chosen to go on an inflammatory rant calling Pakatan Rakyat MPs, DAP and myself racists for allegedly being anti-Malay in our exposés. Ismail Sabri said on his Facebook and Twitter on Tuesday 15th November 2011 that :
TONY PHUA DAP ni masih tk habis2 menfitnah KRIM. kini dgn tuduhan tdk berkualiti. semlm isu ini tlh dijwb oleh Mydin & pembekal IKS. jelas agenda DAP yg ingin menguburkan KRIM yg rata2 supplier nya terdiri dari IKS bumiputra. Rata2 pembeli nya terdiri dari gol berpendapatan rendah bumiputra. Mydin pun bumiputra. malangnya ada bumiputra spt nurul izah & zulkifli ‘menyalak’ bagi pihak DAP.”
The racist accusations made by the Minister is not only completely baseless, it is the complete opposite of what the Pakatan Rakyat MPs are trying to achieve. By exposing the list of poor quality and illegal products which do not meet the minimum legal standards set out in the Food Act 1983 and Food Regulations 1985, it is Pakatan Rakyat that is truly fighting for the interest of the mostly Malay consumers at KR1M as well as other poor Malaysians.
If not for our exposés, many Malays and poor Malaysians will still be consuming poor quality oyster sauce, evaporated millk, ice-cream,sardines and fruit jam sold at KR1M. What is worse, if not for Pakatan Rakyat highlighting the shocking deficiencies of the 1Malaysia children’s milk powder which resulted in the product’s withdrawal yesterday, a whole generation of Malay and poor Malaysian children might end up suffering from malnutrition, disease and poor physical development. It is the BN Ministers like Ismail Sabri who are more than willing to sacrifice the interest of ordinary Malays and Malaysians by giving unsubstantiated “guarantees” on the quality of KR1M products and pander to the monetary and vested interest of certain businessmen. The fact that Ismail Sabri’s ministry is going to subsidize theKR1M stores to the tune of RM40 million in 2012 to sell some of these productsto ordinary Malaysians without first ensuring strict quality control over the products shows that BN Ministers are only keep [[[ *** typo or NLP – this should read keen? *** ]]] to score political goals with KR1M. They are not at all interested in the welfare of Malaysians, especially the Malays, who will suffer the most.

3rd Force MPs Are The Real Heroes Fighting For The Interest Of Malays And Poor Malaysians By Exposing Nepotism and Globalist Collusion by DAP type parties.
3rd Force Coalition members of parliament have over the past 2 years exposed the fact that many of the MP’s selling themselves to Globalist/NWO/Illuminati purposes, were not only substandard, illegal and unhealthy, many of these MPs were also less cost efficient than policies made in other existing nations. We were criticised by family blocs within the Pakatan Coalition, as being unfair by comparing “propagandist to propagandist”, that is we should not be comparing Pakatan policies with policies from ethics and conflict of interest viewpoints.
However, we have proven that the comparison was indeed not “propagandist to propagandist” for products such as the “Limitless Terms Prevention For Better Democracy” because the term limit issue from 3rd Force contained consideration for democracy, the Pakatan policy had only 750K funerals and no prevention of Limitless Terms. At the same time, the comparison of Pakatan’s jobsworth-ism with that of 3rd Force demonstrated not only that the former is a far inferior coalition but also the fact that the latter was 124% less nepotistic.
The Pakatan jobsworth-ism was short of at least 15 legally required considerations (i.e. ethics, protections via separation of powers, prevention of nepotism, failed quorums, land grabs, abuse of power, sackings of part members dissenting of the ‘Family’) deficient in self-appraisal and conscientious address of APARTHEID and provided a 802% overdose of Vitamin M in the enriching or proxy contractors, putting at real risk, subverting our ‘Malaysian Spring’ into a self serving second UMNO style clique. Instead of facing up to the problems, Tony Pua has chosen to go on an inflammatory rant calling 3rd Force MPs, DAP and myself out of touch for allegedly being anti-progress in our exposés. Tony Pua effectively said on Malaymail (his Facebook and Twitter also?) on Tuesday 17th November 2011 that ‘DAP was doing a fine job.’
Well DAP has not and is a second UMNO in the making, has not addressed APARTHEID. The out-of-touch accusations made by Tony Pua is not only completely baseless, it is the complete opposite of what the 3rd Force MPs are trying to achieve. By exposing the list of poor quality and unconstitutional policies which do not meet the minimum legal standards in UN (such as not addressing APARTHEID and NEPOTISM), it is 3rd Force that is truly fighting for the interest of the mostly Malay voters as well as other poor Malaysians. If not for 3rd Force exposés, many Malays and globalist/hegemonist unaware Malaysians will still be accepting fifth columnist b.s. political coalitions, poor quality policies, nepotism, limitless terms, self serving 750K funeral-for-CM, 120K funeral for assemblyperson (CM’s wife) policies, and unkept promises such as no quorum Local Council Elections maintained at the taxpayer’s expense at Parliament.
What is worse, if not for 3rd Force highlighting the shocking deficiencies of Pakatan’s bad policies which resulted in the product’s withdrawal yesterday, a whole generation of Malay and poor Malaysian children might end up suffering from blocs of families passing MP and asasemblyperson seats to their children, enforcing Gambier Threat type laws than amending the same and poor ethical development among Pakatan type followers who do not address APARTHEID or other freedoms in the UNHCR. It is the PR runners like Tony Pua who are more than willing to sacrifice the interest of ordinary Malays and Malaysians by giving unsubstantiated “guarantees” on the quality of Pakatan policies and pander to their own monetary and vested interest (think land grabs) of their proxy businessmen.
The fact that Tony Pua’s party DAP is going to subsidize old folks (much like the way RM100 assistance for primary and secondary school students – institutionalized bribery and vote buying actually – voters, every 100 thy give you now will be extracted via taxes many times more in ‘revenge’ policies, vote them out foolish voters . . . haven’t you noticed that life gets harder every year? Same coalition in charge for 50+ years . . . or same 2 coalitions in charge in USA’s case :
;to the tune of (b)millions at tax payer’s expense to continue some of these abusive policies to ordinary Malaysians instead of first ensuring considerate amendments to make cost of living lower, shows that PR politicians are only keep to take over control-of-citizenry goals with Pakatan where they intend to replace UMNO-BN.
They are not at all interested in the welfare of Malaysians, especially the Malays and non-Christians (some Churches even run like family businesses, you can’t sell religion or monopolise it, the House of the Lord is not a building or a religious order, it’s in the spirit of interaction with others and the World, what happens here is parasitism off the uneducated or those who have sinned and suffer guilty consciences that leave them vulnerable to you-know-who-dohs), who will suffer the most fron rampant nepotism and ultimately an oligarchy of UMNO-like family members from the Lim/Karpal/Anwar dynasties nominally backed by Zionists if the Zionists in Israel manage to retain their grip on the USA.
Vote 3rd Force or at least the non-nepotist family blocs and term limitless types in Pakatan.

Textbooks taken back before SPM – The Star Paper – 13th November 2011

In Abuse of Power, children, Education, education as a spiritual weapon, Malaysia, soul, soul binding, soul theft, spiritual abuse, spirituality on January 16, 2012 at 10:21 am
Students from a school in Bandar Sri Damansara, Selangor who will be sitting for the SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) examination, which starts tomorrow, have been without their textbooks for over two weeks. The students were required to return their textbooks a fortnight ago as the school authorities had claimed that the teachers would be too busy during the exam to ensure the return of the books. As a parent, I am upset with the school for demanding the return of the books as surely students would need to revise and look up facts for a major public exam like the SPM. The reason given for the return of the textbooks was, to say the least, unreasonable and self-centred.
Obviously, the schools want to get back the books early so that there will be less paperwork. Teachers find this procedure convenient for them. Now my son has to surf the Internet for vital information as he cannot consult his textbooks which to him and fellow students are badly needed either for reference or revision. Is the measure taken merely for the convenience of schools at a time when teachers are in the holiday mood? Is it a policy made by schools or is it a directive from the Education Ministry? All told, it is a silly, irrational step.
One does not have to be a genius to determine that textbooks can be returned a few days before the school holiday starts or during the week of the exam. Why can’t this be done in the interests of students and not for the convenience of schools or the Ministry which will probably want to know the status of the returned textbooks? We keep talking about Vision 2020, but we do not seem to have the mentality to move forward. The Education Ministry seems to be making decisions without reflecting over the consequences. – Kenny

This case is quite similar to the below : 2 Articles On Possible Mass Attempts on Theft of Soul/Spirit (late May 2011)
Here is how soul theft works *IF* this was an attempt. The taking back of the textbook attempts to steal the Chakra of Mind which considers the textbook as part of itself. This chakra of the student follows the textbook and gets STOLEN by the Ministry of Education then given to mediocre students of ‘a certain race’. That is why you have students of a  tender or at least fairly young age committing suicide out of the soul loss, the soul has followed the original textbook and since mentally the child understands that their future depends on education and by extension the textbook – when the texbook is traken away their soul is also taken with the textbook, or in Foxconn’s case workers who are purposely overworked that their soul becomes tied up in the machinery at the factory and becomes so fearful the physical form is sacrificed so that the soul can escape. If not simply neurotech actions from satellite cell tech ordering the suicides of course.
The stronger ones return to the original owners on their own to their owners, the weaker ones do not. In extreme cases, death can result. Buy your own textbooks or photostat the textbook they give you and study from that photostated version instead. End of story and note that the powers used here are not of Islam but the older Malay Animism, which should be revered for holy purposes instead of being used to deprive others of their future via taking their Mind Chakra (concentration).
The alternative version is that neurotech will be used under cover of false flag spiritualism. Take your pick but photostatting the textbook and exclusively using that photostat version (entirely leaving the ‘original’ textbook alone), is the best way to avoid the nuisance actions in all instances. Meanwhile do remember to vote for candidates that believe in :
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

Hadi and Kit Siang to be DPMs when Pakatan wins, any problems with that? – by Melissa Lee – 20 November 2011

In Uncategorized on January 16, 2012 at 10:19 am
DAP chairman Karpal Singh reiterated that PAS president Hadi Awang and DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang would be the deputy prime ministers of Malaysia when the Pakatan Rakyat wrests control of the federal government. “Both of them are capable of bringing progressive development to the country,” Karpal told reporters on Saturday. His comments are not new but the BN media has been keen to stir up trouble among the 3 coalition members – PKR, PAS and DAP. Recently, DAP sec-gen Lim Guan Eng nipped in the bud further such talk by reiterating that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim would still be prime minister even if the BN jailed him on manifestly fabricated sodomy and sex video charges.
 
The BN then turned its attention on the No. 2 post, hoping to create envy among PAS members and suspicion among the Malay voters with the news that Kit Siang – an ethnic Chinese – would get to sit in such a high post. Racist Umno unable to accept a non-Malay DPM The BN is notoriously racist in its conduct. Led by Malay nationalist party Umno, it has been accused of driving the economy to the ground with massive and widespread corruption at all levels, and using racial and religious politicking and bigotry to mask its financial moves. Despite talk of power-sharing, none of the non-Umno components have any say in the BN decision-making. A recent example is Gerakan president Koh Tsu Koon, who was forced to announce that he would not contest in the next general election, widely expected to be held soon. However, even that was not enough to appease Umno and former premier Mahathir Mohamad has already led the Umno call for Tsu Koon to give up the Gerakan presidency. It is believed that plans are afoot for Tsu Koon’s predecessor Lim Keng Yaik to make a return to national politics. However, Keng Yaik is widely known to be battling a serious illness.

Yes. Theres a problem. These 2, (less so Hadi though) will keep the system in place to cynically take advantage (also deny freedom) of all Malaysians (Malays) at worst with the nepotism in DAP as bad as UMNO, or stagnate in a manner on issues as below mentioned.
 
Solution? Let ALL members of Pakatan political parties vote enmasse at a quorum of 66.6%. You’ll find Kit Siang and Hadi possibly at the bottom of the list (much like PKR’s 8% quorum in which Nurul and Azmin got to bve committee members in absence of a 66.6% quorum – can you say ‘kelam kabut’ – means slipshod  . . .), simply because they might be too old and irrelevant to the majority younger members who want issues that old folk can never reconcile to, and I am not merely referring to LGBT or Apostasy for Muslims alone which these 2 probably will not be able to handle much less END APARTHEID.
 
Any politician who cannot honestly address and grant the below 3 items :
 
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
 
;does not deserve to be DPM, much less an MP. All things considered, if the winning coalition has the guts and sense of ethics, one DPM should be from the losing coalition or any other coalition as well. BN did not have this confidence and sportsmanship, Pakatan sure looks like it doesn’t have confidence or ethics either.
 
*** Commentary : This comment was removed by Malaysia Chronicle in less than 5 minutes. Apparently they cannot handle dissent. And we all know what that means for the Malay demographic in DAP constituencies, looks like there will be nary a Malay vote for DAP . . . as of late December 2011, comments were allowed again . . . a corrected lapse is better than no correction at all.

Ghani slams Pakatan’s ‘one-term millionaires’ – by Athi Shankar – 26th August 2011

In Uncategorized on January 16, 2012 at 10:13 am
The firebrand NGO leader says Umno leaders needed 50 years to land themselves in lavish homes, but Pakatan reps in Penang did it in three.
 
GEORGE TOWN: Umno leaders, according to Suara Anak-Anak Malaysia chairman Mohamed Ghani Abdul Jiman, took more than 50 years in power to purchase lavish homes. However, he said Pakatan Rakyat representatives were dwelling in luxury within three years of seizing control of Penang. These representatives, he added, lived in double and triple-storey bungalows as well as posh townhouses. “Umno politicians needed 50 over years to buy such houses but current elected representatives only needed one term to become millionaires. I have evidence to prove my allegations,” he said. After a long hiatus, the firebrand Ghani led several pro-Umno NGOs to stage their outine post-Friday prayers anti-Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng protest outside Masjid Jamek some 50m from Komtar this afternoon.
 
Unlike the last riot-like street demonstration against the state government on July 1, this time the protest was a tame affair with about 10 people taking part. Media representatives and police personnel at the scene outnumbered the protesters. Despite the poor turnout, the protesters however did not lose their sting when attacking Lim and his administration. ‘Jump off the Penang bridge or Komtar’ The demolition of Malay and Mamak-owned eatery outlets on the island was the main issue of their protest. “We wish Selamat Hari Raya to all victims of Lim’s brutal rule. The current state government only demolishes Malay and Indian shops, not Chinese shops. “I am not a racist. I only want a government which is fair to all,” said Ghani, who is also the vice-chairman of the Coalition of Islamic NGOs Penang. He urged Lim to step down if he could not return the items seized from the demolished outlets, including from his shop.
 
“If he can’t return my belongings, I will present him with a special gift soon,” warned Ghani, who also heads another unregistered NGO, Suara Anak-Anak Mamak Pulau Pinang. The protesters displayed three anti-state government banners and chanted anti-Lim slogans, where the chief minister was condemned as a “communist, coward and ‘pondan’ (transvestite)”. Shouting at the top of his voice, Ghani called on curious onlookers to reject Lim because “the Malaccan was not a Chinese but a communist.” He called on Lim to quit and go back to Malacca immediately and repeated similar calls on the chief minister’s political secretary Ng Wei Aik, who is also the Komtar assemblyman. Ghani also suggested that Lim jump down from either the Penang Bridge or the Komtar building to save Penang.

Here’s something that would never make it’s way into the pro-Opposition media site articles or reporting. No problem on the above issues except that peaceful Communists are as viable a political party paradigm as any, and that the discrimination against ‘pondan’ merely shows the protesters’ narrow attitudes to the LGBT community. Also this group while highlighting serious problems with Pakatan is itself likely not a supporter of :
 
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
 
;even though Mamaks themselves do not have equality yet! Ghani’s suggestion that LGE jump off the bridge or KOMTAR is ridiculously rhetorical and not valid at all in dignifying his supporters or even detracts from the destruction of stalls issue. Ghani should run for election instead and demand full Bumi Status for Mamaks, the same status that dr.Evil has that you somehow do not. One term millionaires though is a strong rallying factor, alongside the issue of limitless terms. LGE’s father LKS has beaten Mubarak and even dr. Evil here in years . . . Indian Muslims demand for bumiputra status!
