“When you are aware, you can prepare.” Sons of Liberty Academy One of the most important weapons the Elite use to enslave humanity is the Hegelian Dialectic. The Hegelian Dialectic is a framework to guide our thoughts and actions to a predetermined solution. Understanding how the Elite manipulate us into their clutches is vital if we are going to be free. When you are aware of how the Elite use this Dialectic to steer societies, you have a pretty powerful tool in staying ahead of not only them but the crowd also. The Hegelian Dialectic is designed to get us into a frenzied defense or offense of a particular idea or thesis. The natural outgrowth of the original idea is the opposite idea or anti-thesis, which will breed it’s own defense and offense. The predetermined answer of the Elite will be the synthesis of both sides of the conflict. In America, the most familiar Hegelian Dialectic is the Republican and Democratic parties. On the right we have the Corporatist, Fascist, Republicans that are pro debt, pro war and pro corporation. On the left, we have the Socialist, Communist, Democrats that are pro tax, pro social issues and pro labor. Both of these two fight back and forth every year in a contrived scripted drama known as Washington politics. The synthesis, of these two seemingly opposite ideas, is this middle of the road “lesser of two evils” mess we have now. When you see that the Elite are collectivists that seek to destroy individuality and freedom, the picture is easier to see. The proper scale is not this false left right paradigm, it is total government power or total freedom. If you are a freedom lover, it does not matter if your government is Fascist or Socialist, you lose. The synthesis of these two is that we get more power and money taken from us to fund every special interest in the world.
You want funding for a trillion dollar a year war? Sure, just support a trillion dollar prescription drug plan. You want unemployment extended? Sure, just support a tax cut for the rich. There are thousands of examples of these trade offs but they are not really trade offs at all. They are ALL against freedom. The use taxes, regulations, and force to take from one group to give it to another. This gets us all into our little camps to fight in their controlled paradigm. We fight for or against all sorts of ideas like mortgage deductions or minimum wage that just end up slitting all of our throats because we are stealing from each other. This only serves the Elite that derives power and profits off of this sick system. When the Elite want to move something fast they create a Problem-Reaction-Solution scenario. The Elite over and over again create problems, they wait for it to create the inevitable mess, and then walk in with a predetermined answer. Almost anything that happens in a crisis, follows this same pattern. Take for example the 2008 financial crisis. The Elite took away a lot of the regulations that were enacted during the Great Depression to regulate banks. They lowered the lending rates, sparking a boom. Created all of these exotic/fraudulent funding vehicles.
Made billions on the way up, knowing all along that this was going to blow up. They waited for the music to stop and for America and Congress to panic. They then had the balls to walk into Congress with a $700 Billion dollar ransom note and said sign it or there was going to be martial law in America. This financial coup d’etat was a carefully planned and executed operation by the Elite. All of the right pieces were in place to pull off this heist in less than a week. If you think this is amazing, wait until they finally knock the legs out of the dollar. There is always a ‘freedom choice’ in any of these Hegelian Dialectics that the Elite don’t even want us to consider. That is the kind of “out of the box thinking” that threatens their paradigm of power. Instead of the Fascist or Socialist false choice, you can choose the Constitutional choice that limits the power of the centralized Elite. The collectivists want to abolish property rights and the American Revolution and Constitution are about protecting property rights. The Elite will never give you that choice, because it does not serve their interests. If you want your freedom you are going to have to fight for it. You need to start by freeing you mind in the Sons Of Liberty Academy. The best and easiest way to protect your property rights is to sell any asset that can be taxed, regulated, zoned, or inflated away and buy precious metals that have no counter party risk.

The moral decay of our society is as bad at the top as the bottom – by Peter Oborne – 11th August 2011

In Abuse of Power, Democracy, England, Invasive Laws, Maximum Wage, Plutocracy, Property, Socialism, Wealth distribution on January 27, 2012 at 8:08 pm
David Cameron, Ed Miliband and the entire British political class came together yesterday to denounce the rioters. They were of course right to say that the actions of these looters, arsonists and muggers were abhorrent and criminal, and that the police should be given more support. But there was also something very phony and hypocritical about all the shock and outrage expressed in parliament. MPs spoke about the week’s dreadful events as if they were nothing to do with them. I cannot accept that this is the case. Indeed, I believe that the criminality in our streets cannot be dissociated from the moral disintegration in the highest ranks of modern British society. The last two decades have seen a terrifying decline in standards among the British governing elite. It has become acceptable for our politicians to lie and to cheat. An almost universal culture of selfishness and greed has grown up. It is not just the feral youth of Tottenham who have forgotten they have duties as well as rights. So have the feral rich of Chelsea and Kensington. A few years ago, my wife and I went to a dinner party in a large house in west London. A security guard prowled along the street outside, and there was much talk of the “north-south divide”, which I took literally for a while until I realised that my hosts were facetiously referring to the difference between those who lived north and south of Kensington High Street. Most of the people in this very expensive street were every bit as deracinated and cut off from the rest of Britain as the young, unemployed men and women who have caused such terrible damage over the last few days.
For them, the repellent Financial Times magazine How to Spend It is a bible. I’d guess that few of them bother to pay British tax if they can avoid it, and that fewer still feel the sense of obligation to society that only a few decades ago came naturally to the wealthy and better off. Yet we celebrate people who live empty lives like this. A few weeks ago, I noticed an item in a newspaper saying that the business tycoon Sir Richard Branson was thinking of moving his headquarters to Switzerland. This move was represented as a potential blow to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, because it meant less tax revenue. I couldn’t help thinking that in a sane and decent world such a move would be a blow to Sir Richard, not the Chancellor. People would note that a prominent and wealthy businessman was avoiding British tax and think less of him. Instead, he has a knighthood and is widely feted. The same is true of the brilliant retailer Sir Philip Green. Sir Philip’s businesses could never survive but for Britain’s famous social and political stability, our transport system to shift his goods and our schools to educate his workers. Yet Sir Philip, who a few years ago sent an extraordinary £1 billion dividend offshore, seems to have little intention of paying for much of this. Why does nobody get angry or hold him culpable? I know that he employs expensive tax lawyers and that everything he does is legal, but he surely faces ethical and moral questions just as much as does a young thug who breaks into one of Sir Philip’s shops and steals from it? Our politicians – standing sanctimoniously on their hind legs in the Commons yesterday – are just as bad. They have shown themselves prepared to ignore common decency and, in some cases, to break the law. David Cameron is happy to have some of the worst offenders in his Cabinet. Take the example of Francis Maude, who is charged with tackling public sector waste – which trade unions say is a euphemism for waging war on low-paid workers. Yet Mr Maude made tens of thousands of pounds by breaching the spirit, though not the law, surrounding MPs’ allowances.
A great deal has been made over the past few days of the greed of the rioters for consumer goods, not least by Rotherham MP Denis MacShane who accurately remarked, “What the looters wanted was for a few minutes to enter the world of Sloane Street consumption.” This from a man who notoriously claimed £5,900 for eight laptops. Of course, as an MP he obtained these laptops legally through his expenses. Yesterday, the veteran Labour MP Gerald Kaufman asked the Prime Minister to consider how these rioters can be “reclaimed” by society. Yes, this is indeed the same Gerald Kaufman who submitted a claim for three months’ expenses totalling £14,301.60, which included £8,865 for a Bang & Olufsen television. Or take the Salford MP Hazel Blears, who has been loudly calling for draconian action against the looters. I find it very hard to make any kind of ethical distinction between Blears’s expense cheating and tax avoidance, and the straight robbery carried out by the looters. The Prime Minister showed no sign that he understood that something stank about yesterday’s Commons debate. He spoke of morality, but only as something which applies to the very poor: “We will restore a stronger sense of morality and responsibility – in every town, in every street and in every estate.” He appeared not to grasp that this should apply to the rich and powerful as well. The tragic truth is that Mr Cameron is himself guilty of failing this test. It is scarcely six weeks since he jauntily turned up at the News International summer party, even though the media group was at the time subject to not one but two police investigations. Even more notoriously, he awarded a senior Downing Street job to the former News of the World editor Andy Coulson, even though he knew at the time that Coulson had resigned after criminal acts were committed under his editorship. The Prime Minister excused his wretched judgment by proclaiming that “everybody deserves a second chance”. It was very telling yesterday that he did not talk of second chances as he pledged exemplary punishment for the rioters and looters. These double standards from Downing Street are symptomatic of widespread double standards at the very top of our society. It should be stressed that most people (including, I know, Telegraph readers) continue to believe in honesty, decency, hard work, and putting back into society at least as much as they take out. But there are those who do not. Certainly, the so-called feral youth seem oblivious to decency and morality. But so are the venal rich and powerful – too many of our bankers, footballers, wealthy businessmen and politicians. Of course, most of them are smart and wealthy enough to make sure that they obey the law. That cannot be said of the sad young men and women, without hope or aspiration, who have caused such mayhem and chaos over the past few days. But the rioters have this defence: they are just following the example set by senior and respected figures in society. Let’s bear in mind that many of the youths in our inner cities have never been trained in decent values. All they have ever known is barbarism. Our politicians and bankers, in sharp contrast, tend to have been to good schools and universities and to have been given every opportunity in life. Something has gone horribly wrong in Britain. If we are ever to confront the problems which have been exposed in the past week, it is essential to bear in mind that they do not only exist in inner-city housing estates. The culture of greed and impunity we are witnessing on our TV screens stretches right up into corporate boardrooms and the Cabinet. It embraces the police and large parts of our media. It is not just its damaged youth, but Britain itself that needs a moral reformation. Peter Oborne is the Daily Telegraph’s chief political commentator.

Make sure the material aspects are covered – this was done in one of the best welfare states though selective assignments have tainted it English welfare severely. Maybe there were insufficient contact type sports, or physicality oriented venues and outlets for the more boisterous among the youths especially and more robust among citizens. But England has not made sure there is equitable wealth distribution. Thus anger resulted despite how well fed, well housed or well educated – or even well jobbed. The taxpayer is not here to enrich a class of bureaucrats or politicians and these same groups have impoverieshed the entire ‘West’ even as their mentality is starting to afflict freshly ‘re-minted’ countries like India and China. All mankind as individuals can’t be, will not be allowed by their fellow man to be extremely rich and powerful via patronage or nepotism (honest business is good but sequester for no purpose or worse, to invest outside of the country – and anger is inspired again), or hand down your councillor or minister’s or MP’s or Assemblyman’s post, then expect an equally intelligent person to accept your presence in government. They (even rioters) ARE society and nation itself (no people means no nation) and will kick your a$$ and amend laws and constitutions to counter these groups no matter how hard it is to do or how much pain can be expected from doing so. Herein lies the Spirit of the War of Independence, the Spirit of the French Revolution, the Spirit of Marxism-Socialism !

Lawyer’s call for legalized prostitution stirs up a storm – by Dana Kay& Wong Choon Mei – M’sia Chronicle – 14 Aug 2011

In Abuse of Power, Invasive Laws, Malaysia, Sexuality, social freedoms on January 27, 2012 at 8:05 pm
Lawyer’s call for legalized prostitution stirs up a storm Angry women are up in arms over a call by a male lawyer to legalize prostitution. The lawyer had asked the authorities to do so when he was mitigating for a woman sex worker at the Magistrate’s court in Sarawak recently. It stirred up a hornet’s with wives and girlfriends taking umbrage at the suggestion to the extent that they flooded the PKR Women’s wing with phone calls to protest. An incensed Voon Shiak Ni, the PKR Women’s vice chairman, also hit out at the lawyer. She accused him of making a mockery of women, refusing to accept his argument that legalizing prostitutes was also one way to deter rape. Why was the study to prove such a sweeping statement, she demanded. “Rape is caused by sadistic men who want control, power and violence over women. It has nothing to do with making prostitutes legal. These are two different issues altogether,” Voon told a press conference. “This is one of the most negative statements to be used as a mitigation factor. Women should not be encouraged to go into the flesh trade and be used by men as it causes social ills, family break up and bring diseases into the home.” Oldest profession, so what? It’s a trade, Voon reasoned, that would mushroom to meet demand with women and young girls vulnerable to being treated as sex objects, without respect for them as people or human beings. Pimps would take control over their lives and they would be forced to entertain many clients with no consideration for their well-being, she fretted. She did not deny that prostitution was one of the oldest professions in the world and already entrenched in society worldwide. But that did not make it right or offer enough grounds to make it legal, Voon insisted. She pointed out that some prostitutes were forced into the flesh trade while others were brought in by human traffickers. “There were arguments that legalizing prostitution would ensure women would undergo medical checks frequently.
Now who is going to ensure that all these women will really go for checkup? All that is more easily said than done,” said Voon. She also warned deadly sexual diseases like HIV have increased and can be spread through the sex trade and taken ‘home’. At a course she attended recently, organised by the United Nations Development Plan, Voon said she was appalled to learn that AIDS was now spread more from ordinary homes rather than from ‘gay’ couples or homosexual-related activities. Since last week, the PKR leader has put up the issue on her Facebook page asking for opinions. Most people were of the idea that even if prostitution was legalized, there was no way that wives would allow their husbands to visit them. Legalization could not make prostitution respectable or acceptable either. For example, Voon said, a legal sex centre was not a ‘sports club’ where one would encourage the young to go. “We want the younger generation to work hard on their studies and improve their career, not seek out prostitutes.” She also cautioned that legalized outlets may charge higher and this in turn could make underground prostitution dens more popular. “It’s just like buying lottery tickets. Despite legal lottery outlets, there are a number of illegal ones,” she said. Don’t be a heroine at others’ expense So, is Voon right? Passionate she may be about women’s rights, albeit from her point of view, but some of her ideas seem to run contrary to the stand taken by several first world governments including squeaky-clean and conservative Singapore, which quietly legalised prostitution years ago. To many women activists, education and empowerment are the best ways forward for the female sex to be able to choose their own destinies. The gap against their male counterparts has already narrowed tremendously due to better education opportunites, although there is still a long way more to go. Within the industry, there are also many educated women who choose to be sex workers because of the money. To this group, there is nothing wrong and they appreciated the protection that comes with legalisation, although many wished it could be better. These women see Voon as a zealot, who must learn to distinguish between vice and human trafficking and offering sex as a service in a professional manner.
“These are totally different things. Of course, sex slaves and enforced prostitution that is due to vice and human trafficking must be stopped. It is cruel and I for one would contribute some money towards such a cause. But this is a problem due to poverty, the economy, and most of all, to the unscrupulous syndicates. This is a problem for the police and the enforcement people. To not legalise prostitution just because of this will harm other prostitutes,” a sex worker was kind enough to take the time to share with Malaysia Chronicle. “In the end, it is for the individual to choose. What the governments should do is to get them to a level where they can choose. How many women can really choose their own fates now? To you, it is terrible, to me – what’s the big deal? What is important is that everything is professional and safe and nobody is beaten up and taken advantage of. To me, it is important that I am protected, I get my pay and I deliver my services professionally. My client must also be professional. The law can help in this way. Women like Voon must think more deeply and not inflict her own philosophy on others. Who is she to do that? She should stop moralizing and trying to be a heroine at our expense.” – Malaysia Chronicle

Try the comments on below link too in support of legalisation. It is consensual and not forced like military conscription (who knows the legalization could include clauses could be used to punish the adulterous rather than waste the prison system resources as well) : http://www.mmail.com.my/content/58974-little-india-still-big-vice Legalise in the right places but makes sure price controls are in place. This must be a priced controlled (i.e. minimum hourly wage) sort of thing, not a way for business cartels (not necessarily underworld cartels who would be quite happy to legalize than being raided) to impoverish the blue or grey collar worker types.
It is as laborious to have a few minutes of sex (this might not even be labour but leisure for the sex workers), as to work an entire hour on a production line or maintain factory equipment or repair a car. Apart from health checks and taking of client records required of licensed sex workers, suggest price controls for ‘quick session’ to be minimum hourly wage, and ‘hourly session’ based fees to cost no more than national average for a half day of shift work. Anything more would kill most ordinary folk. Sex is not just for VVIPs though, the greedy ones could register as Escorts who would likely graduate to being Mistresses or Catamites should section 377B be abolished for non-Muslims at any rate at least. Grow up, and the law should also reflect realities on the ground as well.

Imam ‘severs ties’ with Johor Islamic dept – by Malaysia Chronicle – 17th August 2011

In Abuse of Power, Apartheid, Bumiputera Apartheid, Malaysia, Muslims, social freedoms on January 27, 2012 at 8:03 pm

An imam with a mosque in Johor has decided to “sever ties” with the state religious department (JAJ) following his suspension, he believes, over his detention by the police on July 9. Hassan Md Said (left), the imam with Masjid Ladang in Gelang Patah, said he was deeply disappointed with the three-month suspension slapped on him by the JAJ, which he described as unprofessional and unethical. “I will preach in other ways. I am very disappointed that they have done this to me. I have served as imam for 14 years but it is as if I am not appreciated. This religious department is totally unprofessional,” he said. Hassan, 40, said he received a letter from JAJ director Elias Hasran informing him of his three-month suspension starting Aug 2 for “going against several orders” issued by Johor Baru religious officials. Though the details remain unclear, Hassan, who claims to suffer from diabetes, believes his monthly allowance of RM750 would be frozen – leaving him without any income. He said the letter did not state what exactly he did wrong, but he believes it is directly related to his detention, along with nearly 1,700 people, in relation to the Bersih 2.0 rally. However, Hassan denied taking part in the rally, saying he was merely in Kuala Lumpur to visit relatives and tour the capital city. The father of four said the suspension order has left his name in disrepute, with less and less students going to him to learn the Quran. Hassan said his family was now facing a financial “deficit”, made worse by the rising inflation. “Our family is rather poor. We don’t even have a house… we rent (a house) near the mosque… It’s going to be hard, we won’t be able to afford the rent,” he said. Efforts by Malaysiakini to contact the JAJ director were not successful as at press time. – Malaysiakini

So where are the ‘caring’ PR aligned Malaysians who will offer him a job since he was caught due to them? Though sometimes one’s calling, even to Islam will not be realised due to politics. I suggest that Che Hassan consider running as a Malay candidate that believes 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.

;to end APARTHEID via challenging of any racist MPs or Assemblymen as an Independent Malay candidate who wishes an equal country. There are not enough high minded Malay candidates who are tired of racism, wish to remove corruption and who will summarily refuse cash buyoffs. Are you such a Malay and Muslim and Malaysian Che Hassan? If so, step forward against the racist MP or Assemblyman and you will have a bloc of Indian and Chinese voters ready to increase your chance to win by that many %. Inform the voters of your intent in the larger percentage margin minority areas for a start, someone needs to set a precedent, why not you? Also see the below – sign the below with a cam as a campaign promise taking down the signing in the presence of as many media reporters or people as possible : http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1914864390044&set=o.318515515322&type=1&theater

Best of luck Che Hassan ! And ‘caring’ PR aligned Malaysians, some help here? No? Just want to ask for 750K funerals, hold 0.002% or 8% quorums for elections, or tear down people’s awnings on their private property and steal gas tanks? Pakatan won because the people had no other choice, NOT because they were wonderful. A politically persecuted Iman supported by Indian and Chinese minorities to end APARTHEID would be a Quran worthy story to be repeated for generations of Malaysians to come. Imam Che Hassan, you should go for candidacy and be a hero for a politics free Islam and an APARTHEID free Malaysia (Islam forbids Asabiya) than a victim as you are now !

Continuing Relevance of Jammu and Kashmir – by Sobia Hanif in Kashmir – 16 August 2011

In Ethics, India, Nepotism, Pakistan on January 27, 2012 at 8:01 pm
The Jammu and Kashmir dispute is an intricate issue, which lies at the heart of most of the conflicts between the nuclear rivals of South Asia. It would be over optimistic to hope for a permanent congenial environment for the people of the region without resolving the Jammu and Kashmir issue according to aspirations of the Kashmiri people and in accordance with the UN Resolutions. The Kashmir issue is not merely an issue of a disputed territory holding vast resources as well as being the hub of all major waterways to both India and Pakistan; it is in fact an issue which determines the fate of over 15 million Kashmiris.
Therefore, while determining its future, the human factor as well as the wishes of its citizens either to become part of Pakistan or India or to acquire an independent status must not be overlooked. For those of us who refer to the decaying relevance of the Kashmir issue and call for the promotion of enhanced cross-border trade with India and greater people to people contact in exchange for concessions to India on the Kashmir issue, a retrospect into the past and an insight into the future would serve well for reality to dawn upon them. History speaks for itself. The Kashmir issue has been part of the incomplete agenda of the partition plan of the Sub-continent. At the time of partition in 1947, each princely state was given the choice to either become a part of India or Pakistan or to maintain its independent status. The overwhelming Muslim population of Kashmir wanted to unite with Pakistan, but its Hindu ruler, Maharaja Hari Singh wanted the other way around.
When the population revolted against him, he asked the Indian government for military assistance. This eventually led to a war between India and Pakistan in 1948. The matter was then taken into the UN Security Council by India and a ceasefire was implemented. Later on the United Nations called for the issue to be resolved peacefully in accordance with the UN Resolutions. However, India has never fulfilled its obligations to the Kashmiri people and has substituted the demand for a free and fair plebiscite under the auspices of the United Nations by unlawful and controversial elections in the valley, whereby people are forcibly dragged out of their homes and brought to the polling stations by Indian military forces. A futuristic analysis would clearly indicate that Pakistan’s fate is inexplicably tied with the fate of the Kashmir. Any myopic decision by our top leadership could seriously jeopardize the future of the Kashmiri people as well as having hazardous consequences for the entire Pakistani nation. In addition, while it would only be logical to hope for a quick resolution of the dispute, it would be detrimental to make the wrong choices. While Pakistan has shown considerable flexibility in its position for the resolution of the issue, the matter cannot be resolved unilaterally. India’s response to the issue has been that of ‘engage and disengage intermittently.’ On one hand, the Indian governments have repeatedly stated that they are ready to negotiate all issues bilaterally with Pakistan including Kashmir; on the other hand, it has maintained that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of the Indian union. Furthermore, when the Indian authorities eventually end up deciding to discuss the future of Jammu and Kashmir, it is usually the section of Jammu and Kashmir, that associates itself with Pakistan that they would like to talk about. The end result is a prolonged period of frustration among the Kashmiris as well as the people of Pakistan.
These procrastinating tactics have an underlying strategy to them. Firstly, at the time of partition, the ratio of Muslims to Hindus was 8:2. However, over the years, due to mass scale atrocities and the murder of hundreds of thousands of Kashmiri Muslims the ratio has been forcibly modified to 6:4. The Indian authorities are buying for themselves enough time to convert Jammu and Kashmir into a Hindu majority state so that, if eventually they do decide to hold a plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir, the turnout would show the majority favoring accession with India. This in fact is a case of a state committing the heinous crime of ethnic and religious cleansing for the achievement of its particular national interests. Secondly, The Indian military forces continue to humiliate torture and murder innocent Kashmiris as a routine. The men are either tortured to be crippled for life or simply shot dead, the women are assaulted and raped brutally, the children are forced to live under extreme fear of the unknown and the old are left to see their entire generation perish before their eyes. The Indian Military forces have been granted special powers to suppress any symptoms of uprising under the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act (PSA) and Armed Forces Special Power Act. The purpose has been to dampen their spirits and to threaten them with dire consequences in case of non-compliance with the puppet government in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and the Indian authorities.
The results are however, contrary to the Indian authorities’ expectations. Their strategies have often fired back at them. History has been evident to the fact that no nation has ever been subjugated to perpetual bondage whose people have vowed to attain freedom at all costs. The Kashmiri struggle is an indigenous one with Pakistan offering its moral and political support to the Kashmiri people. However, the issue needs to be highlighted in a more assertive and convincing manner on the international arena and revitalized in the UN General Assembly. The United States and its western allies have decided to intervene economically, politically and militarily in the Libyan crisis under the pretext that the United States cannot act as a bystander and allow a tyrannical government to suppress and murder its own people simply because they demand the right to freedom and greater civil rights. However, the shrieks and cries of thousands of Kashmiri people are falling on deaf ears. It appears as if their real concern is not the protection and promotion of human rights but actually an un-quenching thirst for the ‘liquid gold’ of the Middle East, Gulf and African states. As far as Jammu and Kashmir is concerned, the United States continues to exhibit a discriminatory behavior towards this just cause. It feels that it is not in a position to annoy its much-needed ally in South Asia. It looks towards India to assist it in the containment of China, which is already flexing its muscles and aspiring to challenge the monopoly of the United States in the years to come. Therefore, it is up to the Kashmiri people and the people of Pakistan to keep this issue burning and alive. An enduring peace in the entire region cannot be attained until and unless the Jammu and Kashmir issue is resolved according to the aspirations of its people. India too, must realize that its desire to become a regional power and a key global player cannot be realized, if it continues to display such indifference towards the Jammu and Kashmir conflict. It will always serve as a ‘bleeding wound’ and continue to drain the life and vitality from the Indian existence. The international community has lot of responsibilities in this regard. It should at least deplore India for the unparallel human rights violations by its security forces.

Voters ! Don’t tick whatever has the ‘Ghandi’ or Nehru name on the form. With the Indian government banning all things negative about Mahatma Ghandi (they make it a crime to say anything bad about him), this Nehru dynasty has been riding high on that borrowed name for several generations, and still going. India, you are among the oldest nations worldwide, rather than succumb to corruption and foreign influences of a few men, or indulge in nepotism and plutocracy, sequestration of wealth, while people starve, end this recipe for destruction and shames BRICS, and do the correct thing. PM Manmohan Singh has to grow the political will to deal harshly with those who destroy India from within, politically, ethically, environmentally, socially and fiscally.

Articles On China – reposted by @AgreeToDisagree – late February 2012

In Uncategorized on January 27, 2012 at 7:58 pm
An official in Southwest China’s Yunnan province has been dismissed from his post after images showing him taking part in group sex were posted online, local disciplinary authorities confirmed on Thursday. The Kunming disciplinary inspection committee released a statement saying that the official, identified only by his surname Cheng, has “severely damaged social morality” through his behaviour. Cheng, an official with the Kunming commission of development and reform, was also expelled from the Communist Party of China. Photos showing Cheng taking part in group sex were posted online on the morning of July 31. Cheng went to local police later that day, claiming that he had been blackmailed for 63,000 yuan (RM29,591). After an investigation, the Kunming Public Security Bureau said in a statement on Tuesday that a group of four people lured Cheng into participating in the act and recorded him using a hidden camera. The four people have since been arrested, according to the statement. Cheng’s case was revealed shortly after another official in Central China’s Henan province was suspended for similar reasons. Tian Hanwen, a lawmaker in Ruyang county, became notorious overnight after photos of him having sex were posted online by an anonymous woman, who accused Tian of “taking advantage” of her. The woman said in her post that Tian made several unwanted sexual advances toward her after meeting her in 2006, promising to help her find a job. Tian never fulfilled his promise, the woman said, adding that she has not been his only victim. – China Daily/ANN

The citizen has to choose beween victims of blackmail or REAL corrupt officials who appear respectable yet collude and loophole policy for their own benefit against the citizens. How corrupt is Commissioner Cheng, how much damage does Commissioner Cheng do to the system via ratifying of bad laws, how much has the Commissioner stolen from the people, sent to tax havens as opposed to the blackmail personally cautious publicly respected but citizen abusive officials and politicians? Would you prefer an official who visits prostitutes in his private off time (legalise adult services venues already), or an official that barefacedly writes 750K of your tax monies to his own funeral expenditures and raise his or his wives salary allotments? They are there to make sure the bureaucracy works not be moral exemplars. Are they hardworking and write good policy despite their proclivities in private? Or would the Chinese have respectable types who destroy the nation in all other ways while they are moral exemplars? One destroys the nation, one destroys themselves, and only at the people’s will. Who harms more people? Of course BOTH ways perfected would be great but this is not always possible and the sacking must be weighed in this manner to be just. ***Commentary : This comment was disallowed on Malaysia Chronicle.

Mother left baby and toddler locked in car while she went drinking in bar… at 4am – by James White – 26th August 2011
A mother left her two young sons alone in an unlocked car while she was drinking in a bar until nearly 4am. Police found the youngsters – one aged nearly three, the other just eight months – on a street in Rusholme, Manchester, after a passer-by raised the alarm. Officers rescued the boys and waited by the car for 40 minutes until mother Kayleigh McNaughton, 21, emerged from a nearby bar at around 3.45am. Drunk mother: Kayleigh McNaughton is facing prison after leaving her young sons in a car while she went drinking in Rusholme, Manchester The vehicle, which belonged to a friend of McNaughton, smelled of wet nappies and vomit and there was no sign of any food, Manchester magistrates’ court heard. When the police asked the older child where his mother was, he pointed up the street and said: ‘Mummy that way.’ McNaughton has been warned she could face jail after admitting two counts of neglecting children in a manner likely to cause them unnecessary suffering. She left the court in tears, with her lawyer describing her as a ‘loving mum’ who was ‘distressed’ about what she had done.
McNaughton had driven into the Rusholme area in the early hours of August 13. Just before 3.10am, police received a call from a concerned member of the public who had passed the parked car. They rushed to the scene and found the older child standing up in the rear footwell and the baby strapped into a car seat. When McNaughton arrived she was unsteady on her feet and smelled strongly of alcohol, the court heard. She initially claimed she had only been away for a few minutes – but later confessed she had been with a female friend drinking in the Saki Bar for up to an hour. Matthew Wallace, defending, said McNaughton had intended to go to a chemists to buy painkillers before ending up in the bar. He said: ‘She is distressed about her behaviour. For reasons she cannot explain she just wanted to get away. ‘Normally she is a loving and caring mum and is totally ashamed of herself.’ Mr Wallace said that McNaughton, who has never previously been in trouble, had been in a very violent and abusive relationship. She had been having problems with the children, one of whom was teething and was feeling depressed, the court heard. Magistrates sent the case to Manchester Crown Court for sentencing, warning McNaughton that she needed ‘greater punishment’ than they were able to give.
Hugh Keachie, chairman of the magistrates, said:’ We don’t think we’ve sufficient powers in this court to deal with you. ‘The offences are so serious you need greater punishment than we can give.’ The children are now in the care of social services and McNaughton is said to be living in a Manchester refuge.

More 3rd world prison favouring contractor injustice. After my comments on prison contractors, I’m beginning to see how much the current governent loves it’s prison contractors and probably military as well instead of being more considerate to it’s citizens. Is England a quietly ‘junta-fied’ nation? This will destroy the continuity of this already suffering young woman’s life and her 2 children as well. Punish her if something happened to the children, but since nothing actually happened to the children, instead of wasting tax payer monies and refuge operators ‘business’ or a reason to keep open – like so many Quangocrats, and later jail, it would be better to just give her a warning and be done with it.
Assign a counselor for her to report to for a day or 2 or few weekends at most, that would cost less than jail. England’s judges are so inconsiderate and England’s criminal code is so hateful. All that family destroying behaviour by the English for mere profit at the cost to taxpayers is sinful and shameful. All those Inns of Law are for naught the way judgments are passed. Little wonder those riots occurred. English citizens, time to remocve all MPs who refuse to amend laws or even the judges who are inclined to take advantage of the system by victimising the already unfortunate. The other issue is of course, was neurotech intentionally used to make her depressed then forget her children in the bar simply to enrich prison contractors?

Firstly I stand massively corrected on my assertion yesterday that the day of rage would fizzle out before it started. So now I know – next time I predict a quiet protest, it’s time to crack out the bullet proof vest. By the end of the week, it had become patently clear to everyone following the demonstrations here that the protestors weren’t going to succeed in ousting President Saakashvilli. Standing by the barriers just before the police advanced was like witnessing a large-scale version of a schoolyard brawl. Police did not distinguish between demonstrators and journalists, watch one of the task force take aim at our cameraman: The protestors would have played the role of the scrawny kid who’s trying to stand up for himself against the school bully. You know they don’t have a hope in hell of winning, but the fact they stand their ground leaves you morbidly transfixed. And this time, those catcalling for a fight were people who really should have known better. Absolutely no one comes out of this looking good. Not Saakashvilli, whose police force undisputedly used excessive force in dispersing the protestors.
Nor the opposition, who rallied their people into a fight they were destined to lose as they hot tailed it away to safety the minute violence broke out. Many of the crowd were of an older generation: And that was the saddest thing about witnessing the protests. The people caught up in the violence were simply the victims of a much more cynical political power struggle. Many of them had legitimate cause for complaint. But neither Saakashvilli nor the opposition who are after his Presidency seemed to care a toss. Had they, perhaps negotiations would have taken place sooner, and if they had been more constructive – it would have saved a couple of lives and a lot of totally unnecessary bloodshed. Tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets were used to disperse the crowds: As the numbers grew yesterday I commented on the fact that it seems strange that people calling for democracy choose to do it looking like something out of Mad Max – their faces covered and brandishing weapons. Someone brought up the old revolutionary saying – ‘you can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.’ But you know what you make if you break too many – a big bloody mess.

Citizens outnumber po-po (police) 100 to 1 (10,000 to 1?) regardless of equipment. Guess who should do the arresting? Make sure you are coordinated enough to ARREST the ARRESTERS. Is your cause just? Do you need justice and have been abused, physically or even psychologically? Thus you will seek redress by the medthod you know best. Some write, some riot, others wait t vote, the organised, stand for candidacy to remove bad MPs or a bad political party. More importantly, many ‘borderline-case’ or emotionally immature Englishmen and Englishwomen who only deserve a reprimand or an ASBO or community work at worst, are in jail for unreasonable jail term periods and punishments way beyond the scope of offense, or unreasonable and whimsical application of judicial powers backed by police. Why should any citizen tolerate this? Would the UN or NAM send peacekeepers to liberate the English from the fascist application of laws? Why should a person who steals a bottle of water be imprisoned for 6 months? Why should government raise salaries beyong GDP growth? Why should taxes increase? And all the while being insulting?
Nobody has any sympathy for the way they apply the law in parts of England and parts of USA. In fact if enough *BAD* po-po (police) (the friendly ones should be left alone) are ‘arrested’ before they even step out of their homes to get into their ”pig’ mode, the unhappy prisoners could be freed and abused citizens could liberate England like Libya instead of tolerating the way the po-po (police) throw their weight around and the way the judiciary abuses their powers. No burning of shops or property destruction or theft though, but do CITIZEN ARREST any ‘uniforms’ who abusing power or arrogantly passing sentences without consideration for the supposed ‘criminal’. Revolting against abuse by authorities happens off and on, if someone is shot on in an act intended to casuse fear, then by all means let the sh1t fly but make sure the aim is well and good and that you are justified and act responsibly, not viciously in any altercation and arrest or counter-arrest. Get the goodly and fair minded among police on your side too, what better way to revolt eh? But do be correct and civilised in whatever actions so that popular support is with you. Time to throw out the oligarchs, plutocrats and nepotists – if it’s too serious OCCUPY City Hall and set up a respectable ‘shadow’ council and shadow government. England has to set an example and we’re not talking about citizens capitulating to police state repression . . . give them what they deserve. Maybe in coordination with hacking groups and perhaps also political support of international observers like UN, NAM, AU, EU or ASEAN. Coordinate if your fellow citizens are being abused, I believe too many Englishmen are indeed living in a police state. Opinions or rebuttals? Do as you will, but stay legal wherever possible disregarding illegal laws !

Ideal duration for judgment is one month – former judge – by  Malaysia Chronicle – Thursday, 14 July 2011 18:49PUTRAJAYA – One month is the ideal duration for judges to write and deliver their judgments, said former High Court judge Datuk Syed Ahmad Idid.He said judges should gather and write down the points immediately, upon completion of hearing their cases. A delay, he said, would cause the mind to be disorganised since they would have other cases to manage.”Very much better, you finish your case, you gather the points together and draw up…and from there, you already have an idea and know the main crux and what to concentrate (on),” he said.

He said judges should take two weeks to write the draft, and another week or two, to rethink what they had written before making some adjustments to their judgment.

Syed Ahmad said judgments must be clear, adding that the importance of writing a judgment was for people who were affected by the judgment.

Syed Ahmad, who is also Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration director, was speaking at a media conference after the launch of his book, ‘Writing of Judgments: A Practical Guide for Courts and Tribunals’.

The book was launched by Chief Justice Tun Zaki Azmi at the Conference Hall in the Palace of Justice here.

In his speech, Zaki reminded judges that their judgments should be written in a concise, clear and succinct manner to make it easy for parties in a court case to understand the judge’s grounds of judgment, as well as for the appellate court to understand the rationale of their decision.

Meanwhile, Syed Ahmad said the book was intended to give judges, particularly the younger ones, guidance and equip them with knowledge and ability to write judgments.

On some judges who delayed writing judgments by between two and eight years, Syed Ahmad said the chief justice was concerned over the matter.

How about allowing for minor cases not exceeding a certain amount to be judged by lawyers at their offices with the entire process recorded on camera as proof of appropriate judgment and also for records where students could study and learn? This way the main courts could be freed for more cases.Meanwhile, no respectable lawyer will tolerate a lack 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.They would petition and sign and boycott or contact the UN or whatever legal world body to challenge the Asabiya form Bumiputra APARTHEID aka enforced Dhimmitude which is by proper application of Islam a munafiq practice to be denounced by Muslim lawyers as well.

Stalkers to be given ‘substantial’ jail sentences under new plans to protect victims – by Leon Watson – Last updated at 9:42 AM on 5th February 2012

A major inquiry will recommend that stalking should be made a specific criminal offence, it was reported today. MPs believe the problem has got so bad a new law is needed to protect victims from emotional and physical abuse. The all-party parliamentary group, following a six-month investigation, will say this week that stalkers should face substantial jail terms.

Lurking: Stalkers who harass their victims should face tougher sentencing, a report will claim

It comes before the result of a separate Home Office inquiry, which completes its consultation on how to protect stalking victims today.

Prime Minister David Cameron has already conceded that there is a gap in the current protection for stalking victims.

The Observer reported today that Home Office ministers Theresa May and Lynne Featherstone are also understood to be in favour of a change.

The parliamentary group on stalking heard evidence from lawyers, psychologists, academics and the parents of murdered stalking victims.

Chairman Elfyn Llwyd MP told The Observer: ‘We are very firmly of the view that there needs to be a change in the law.

‘We’ve looked at other countries, such as the way Scotland has done it, and they have a law which resulted in several hundred successful prosecutions in the first year.’

Tragedy: Tricia Bernal with her daughter Clare, who was shot by her stalker in 2005

British Crime Survey figures show there are an estimated 120,000 cases of stalking in the UK each year, 53,000 are recorded as crimes by police and only one in 50 of these leads to an offender being jailed.

A study released in December by the probation officers’ union Napo warned that just two per cent of suspected stalkers are being jailed.

It found that police, probation and court staff are continually failing victims, some of whom have suffered 20 years’ harassment at the hands of their stalker.

High-profile cases include that of Clare Bernal, shot dead by her stalker in 2005 as she worked at the Harvey Nichols department store in London.

Stalker and his prey: Shane Webber, left, was jailed at Southampton Magistrates’ Court for his campaign against ex-girlfriend Ruth Jeffery, right

Ultimate betrayal: Shane Webber’s online harassment made girlfriend Ruth Jeffery so ill she was prescribed anti-depressants and aborted their unborn child

Former store security guard Michael Pech, 30 was on bail awaiting sentence for harassment of his former girlfirend when he murdered her.

The Czech-born immigrant then killed himself.

In October, a man who stalked his girlfriend online for years without her knowing it was jailed for four months. He had admitted causing harassment. Ruth Jeffery, 22, said Shane Webber had ‘wrecked the past three-and-a-half years of my life’.

The actions of the unemployed 22-year-old, from Nottingham, ‘made me feel sick and so stressed because it was happening every single day’, she said.

Researchers recently found that two-thirds of victims said the police and prosecutors did not take their complaints sufficiently seriously.

Laura Richards, of the charity Protection Against Stalking, said: ‘We know first hand that, for too long, victims have suffered in silence or at the hands of the criminal justice system.

‘The inquiry has now given them a voice.’

Here’s what other readers have said. Why not add your thoughts, or debate this issue live on our message boards.

According to Ken Clarke substantial will be three weeks.

“The parliamentary group on stalking heard evidence from lawyers, psychologists, academics……” The stalking industry again making money and political gain from the expansion of the abuse industry. The appalling disregard for justice that resuts is likely to lead to many cases of increased violence rather than less, murders are rare and may not have happened at all were it not for the stalking propaganda in the first place. There are already more than enough laws including the draconian harassment act, where unwanted conversation absent any threat and regardless of motive or context can lead to 5 years in prison. Vindictive malicious accusations will abound yet they wont lock up the thousands of female so called stalkers. If looking up someone on google can lead to a prison sentence under new laws then evil really has taken hold of the justice system and we have become worse than third world despot countries.

“‘substantial’ jail sentences” What exactly does that mean though? sentences for serious crimes are a complete joke in this country and even if they are given a long sentence it doesn’t mean they actually serve it. A friend of a friend got sentenced to 18months for something serious she served just 4 and half months in prison so the judge wanting to make an “example of her” was a complete waste of breath. Serving a quarter in prison and a quarter on tag makes the sentence laughable.

Making stalking a criminal offence should have been done years ago. A friend of mine was stalked by an ex-boyfriend who was trying to threaten her into going back to him. It went on for years. The police would only do something when he put bricks through the family’s windows and smashed up their cars, for which he only received a short sentence and then was straight back carrying on stalking as before. My friend ended up having to move abroad just to get away from him. He carried on harassing her parents for a while, but eventually gave up. It was really frightening for both her and her parents and yet the police said they could not stop him.

Don’t enrich the prison contractors. Use an electronic anklet and warning tracer for the victim. Anytime the item registers stalking, the police are alerted and the stalker will be required to relocate at cost to themselves at least a few 10s of kms away everytime they stalk as well as make a public apology in the local paper at cost to themselves? These are mentally ill people and fines or incarceration doesn’t change anything, the above relocations should however help the victims tremendously. Who wants to move house everytime they stalk people (effectively they are trying to displace well being so  equitably the same type of punishment being meted would be mor meaningful) who have dropped them from their list of normal people that can be mixed with? Try another one for sickos who follow about the internet thinking they’re so cool when all they are is so SICK. Bar the creeps from using internet or remove their mobile handphone rights for an increasing period of time everytime they electronically stalk!

Former RAF sergeant, 60, revealed as transsexual named Foxy Roxy is jailed for offering kinky sex with boy – by Daily Mail Reporter – Last updated at 9:06 AM on 8th February 2012

A transsexual former RAF sergeant has been jailed for eight months after he was discovered offering sex services with a 15-year-old boy.

Martin Shaxted, 60, who used the name Foxy Roxy, appeared at Canterbury Crown Court yesterday to admit a charge of keeping a brothel and three counts of making and showing 32 indecent images.

The court heard that police officers had raided his home in Cliftonville, Kent, in December 2010 and discovered the boy.

Jailed: Martin Shaxted has been locked up for eight months after admitting keeping a brothel and three charges of making and showing indecent images

But the prosecution accepted that Shaxted believed the boy was 19, rather than his real age of 15 after he confessed to police.

The youngster also admitted smoking cannabis and taking ‘legal highs and poppers’ and engaging in sex.

Police who raided the home also found child abuse pictures on Shaxted’s computer and took away objects including sex toys.

During the hearing Oliver Saxby, prosecuting, told how Shaxted had advertised his services online

Military past: Shaxted, who used the alias Foxy Roxy, served in the RAF for 23 years

He admitted meeting the youngster at a bar but denied encouraging him to take part in sex with other men.

Diaries revealed his services had earned him annual totals of £5,620 in 2008, £5,180 during 2009 and £5,955 in 2010.

The court heard Shaxted was a former RAF sergeant but no details were given of his military records, apart from the fact he served for 23 years.

John O’Higgins, defending Shaxted, said: ‘He became associated with a person who masqueraded as a much older person.

‘He took up escort work five years ago. But he did not entice this young man into providing the services.

‘He is not in the best of health and is now a recluse and is very embarrassed.’

Judge Adele Williams rejected a call from the defence to suspend the sentence because ‘of the kind of experiences he could expect in prison’.

Judge Williams then sentenced him for eight months after telling him: ‘The mischief here is this, that even though you believed him to be 19, he was in fact 15 at the time.

‘You are 60 years old. You allowed a very young man to be providing these services. But I accept you did not exploit him’

Shaxted was also ordered to sign the Sex Offender’s Register.

Whats so illegal about a brothel per se? Brothels offer sex workers safety in numbers and create a sense of community, a communicative atmosphere and camaraderie. What is so offensive? Whats so illegal about making and showing indecent images especially to persons obviously matured enough ‘appreciate’ the images? Some people subsist on a diet of porn, others exist off making porn. What’s criminal here?

The judgment on the teen is good, but the sentence of 8 mths is meaningless, which taxpayers want to pay for that jail stint? Porn is everywhere (actually it’s just art in nature of people unclothed in general . . . ), enjoyed by not everyone but a democratic and human right for those who do enjoy porn. Finally brothels in spirit are harmless! This judge is wasting taxpayer funds and colluding with prison contractors.

Pornography blamed for five-fold rise in genital cosmetic surgery requests by women – by Claire Bates – 24th August 2011

In Democracy, Informed Consent, Islam, Muslims, Sexuality, social freedoms on January 27, 2012 at 7:50 pm
The demand for genital cosmetic surgery among women has risen five-fold in just 10 years, according to NHS figures. But a new study has found that most women who request a ‘designer vagina’ do not need it. A study by Dr Sarah Creighton, from University College London, found most women requested it as they felt pressured to have ‘perfect’ sexual organs by pictures seen in the media. ‘Women are bombarded with images suggesting they are not normal,’ she said. The latest figures for England show around 2,000 NHS-funded procedures take place each year. Dr Creighton led a team from the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Institute who studied 33 women referred by their GP after they requested labial reduction surgery.
The group included eight school girls including one who was only 11-years old, according to the report published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Each girl or woman was examined by a gynaecologist and the width and length of their vaginas were measured and compared with published normal values. They found that all the women seeking surgery had normal-sized genitals. Just three women were offered surgery to address a significant asymmetry. Yet of the women who were refused surgery, 12 (40 per cent) still wanted to pursue surgery by another route. Eleven accepted a referral for psychology and one participant was referred to mental health services. Dr Creighton, said: ‘It is surprising that all of the study participants had normal sized labia minora and despite this nearly half were still keen to pursue surgery as an option. ‘A particular concern is the age of some of the referred patients, one as young as 11 years old. Twenty women (60 per cent) said they wanted a smaller vagina to improve its appearance. Of the 27 women who were able to say when they first became dissatisfied with their genitals, 15 said it was when they were young than 15, while 12 became worried later on. The reasons included becoming more aware of the genital area, watching TV programmes on cosmetic genital surgery, comments from a partner and physical discomfort. ‘It’s shocking, particularly because we are seeing girls who are really young,’ Dr Creighton told the BBC. ‘They are asking for surgery that is irreversible and we do not know what the long-term risks of the procedure might be.’

Refusal for surgery is ridiculous and condescending and in this day and age is ridiculous. Does anyone need permission to get a boob job? Lip surgery? It’s their own body, they can transplant a penis atop their vagina or pierce it with piercings until it looks like an Elvis jacked for all they care. Whats the surgeon supposed to be? An FGM dictator? The door swings both ways. What if they go overseas to get it done? Will the English government arrest them for having surgery when the return? Absolute dictatorship in England if the English don’t realise it, by any reading of the Human Right Charter, no adult person has any right to refuse another adult person to change their body, much less require that they have to be vetted at all or referred to mental services. This is just too offensive and makes some things about the English quite clear. It is a free citizen’s democratic and Human Right to decide how their sex organ should look and the service provider (surgeon) just provides the skills not play God. Referral to mental health services looks like a profit paradigm much like the prison system profiteers (and grows, i.e. gains asisignments of cash from parlianent) off the number of people who used the services. Someone gets a commission somewhere somehow in the chain.
Collusive and profiteering women’s groups silent on this? But they’d rally naked in lesbian super-biker parades and advocate all kinds of nonsense while harrasing random people with lawsuits for being ‘chauvinists’. The necessity of the surgery (right to chose being a given, except in England it would seem) is that if an ugly face (something quite public, or maybe the Muslims have got that right) can offend, the not too lovable looking ‘poon’ (some societies consider it bad luck) needs all the work it can get. Some of the refined types, and society’s increasingly delicate tastes make this necessary. Maybe a preferred look from culture to culture could be stabilized, not being or going to claim to be an expert in this matter, I ask instead Aesthests, Madams/Pimps, Cosmetic surgeons and alongside any adult/pornographic models, perhaps a casanova or few, ALL locally gather to discuss among themselves what the look should be as the current ‘look’ that any cosmetic surgeons (all Western educated or derived) could very well be a CAUCASIAN ‘Typical’ / ‘Preferred’ rather than regionally representative and determined.
There are 6 distinct racial colours, I think there might well be 6 distinct ‘poon’-o-types as well. Have fun and don’t be lazy and just look at 10 and decide. Look at 1000s from each region then decide. Cosmetic surgery skills can then be localized and retaught for the ‘correct’ LOCAL look. Incidentally, pornography does not change the inherent way a person might think. Though some people might be influenced, the title seems rather slanted, much like the lack of freedom of choice to shape one’s ‘poon’ via consensual surgery (you’re a surgeon not God so remember your Hippocratic Oath and help beautify some ‘poons’), as well.

Mat Sabu under attack: Bukit Kepong remarks an insult, says Muhyiddin – by Malaysia Chronicle – 28 August 2011

In Abuse of Power, Apartheid, Democracy, Equality, Ethics, Fat Cats, Informed Consent, Invasive Laws, Malaysia, Nepotism on January 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm
(BERNAMA) Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the alleged remarks by PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu that the communist terrorists (CTs) who attacked the Bukit Kepong police station in the 1950s were the true heroes of the country, was an insult to those who had fought for the country’s freedom. The Deputy Prime Minister said that he was extremely disappointed that Mohammed Sabu better known as Mat Sabu had allegedly made such remarks at a political talk in Tasek Gelugor, Penang on Aug 21, as was reported by a local daily. Muhyiddin said the PAS leader was also reported to have claimed that Malaysia’s former prime ministers, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj and the late Datuk Onn Jaafar, did not qualify to be called freedom fighters. “He has arrogantly hailed the CTs as heroes. Such remarks are a manifestation of Mat Sabu’s ignorance of the contributions of past Malay leaders in the fight to gain independence for Malaysia,” he said in a statement here Saturday. Muhyiddin stressed that Mat Sabu should apologise to all Malaysians if he had made the irresponsible comments. “He (Mat Sabu) has forgotten that it was because of their (past Malay leaders) struggle that Malays were inspired to rise up to oppose the English colonists and the Malayan Union.
“It was because of the contributions of these Malay leaders that the Malays rose up to be united and formed associations which later gave birth to Umno to fight for independence and defend the sovereignty of the Malay rulers, Malay rights, the Malay language and Islam,” said Muhyiddin. Muhyiddin further described Mat Sabu as being blind to history because he was willing to hail people who were cruel and murderers (the CTs). “The communist struggle was not to liberate the people from colonialism. Instead, they (CTs) wanted to form a communist country and rule with an iron fist,” he said, adding that the people who lived in that era knew only to well their cruel and murderous ways whereby after the Japanese surrendered (at the end of the Second World War) they went on a killing and rioting spree and not even sparing innocent people. Meanwhile, Pagoh Barisan Nasional Youth chief Ismail Mohamed today lodged a police report at the Pagoh police station in Muar, Johor over the alleged remarks made by Mohamad Sabu which were published in a local daily. According to the report, Mat Sabu, when giving the talk, had allegedly claimed that the CTs who attacked and killed 25 police personnel and their families in the Bukit Kepong tragedy were the real heroes as they were actually fighting the British.

DPM Muddy, pls. respect freedom of speech. The BUMIPUTRA APARTHEID system and refusal to endorse the 3 items listed below by BN is an insult to the full 35-40% minority of Indians and Chinese and Orang Asli far worse than Mat Sabu’s generalised provokation via support of the CPM, which no longer even exists.
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.
Unless an insane dictator, you cannot or won;t even bother to dictate what Mat Sabu has as an opinion. The police report and any court case will be classified as vexatious and a waste of time if the Judges know what Freedom of Speech is. The police and judiciary shouldn’t even entertain this sort of nonsense, much less DPM Muddy wish to join in the lame argument. The judiiary in fact should be suing and the police putting the corrupt and unconstitutional law writing politicians into jail.
A LIST OF THE MOST SERIOUS ILLEGAL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL, NON-HUMAN RIGHTS COMPLIANT PROBLEMS IN MALAYSIA
Bumiputra Apartheid
Bumiputra Apartheid is unconstitutional and against the Tenets of Islam which forbid Asabiya. Also against the UNHCR Article 1All 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.
The practice of nepotism and unlimited terms for MPs and Assemblymen or CMs as well as nepotism or blocs of families in Dewan or across Ministries and bureaucratic offices is prejudicial to democracy (see links on note 1) and is also unconstitutional, Alienation of Land from the state to be resold on the cheap to RELATIVES is unconstitutional and also TREASON.

Vehicular-AP system

For example the Vehicular-AP system is unconstitutional. All involved in approval of Vehicular AP have committed terrible offenses against the very foundation of modern democracy. Ask any law maker or even the UN if Vehicular AP is legal or even acceptable in a modern government.
Forced Military Conscriptions
Forced Military Conscriptions are unconstitutional and are against various Articles of the UNHCR. Apart from no equitable compensation, in the First World, NS would have been shut down (or as described by several free minded Tories that if non-voluntary would be similar to a political ‘kiss of death’) and the law considered unconstitutional and illegal to begin with. Politicians who continue Forced Military Conscriptions should be condemned as fascists and nazis. Down with brown shirt fascists tyrants (aka Singapore and Israel which both host among the longest “Forced Military Conscriptions”)

The NS Training Department NS is an attack on FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY and backed a law that is unconstitutional and against the Human Rights Charter Articles as follows :

UNHCR Article 3 : * Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Forcing people to go to military camps under threat of jail and fines takes away LIBERTY. In military camps fights, rapes and deaths occur, this take away security of person. The NS Act which forces military conscription is ILLEGAL and contravenes Human Rights Charter Articles 3,4, 5 and 9!

UNHCR Article 4 : * No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

This is a form of mental and psychological imprisonment and slavery and is thus a criminal law imposed on citizens.

UNHCR Article 5 : * No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

To some well bred or nerdy or physically weak kids from good families, this constitutes cruel and degrading treatment or punishment.

UNHCR Article 9 : * No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

The NS law is unconstitutional because it threatens arbitrary arrest and in itself is detention.

I propose that either an ABSTENTION or VOLUNTARY CLAUSE be appended to the illegal and unconstitutional NS law or that the rent seeking system by done away with ENTIRELY. The greed driven writers, supporters and rubberstampers of such laws no empathy as long as they does not speak up against the lack of voluntary clauses in NS.

Various Others :
Toll Concessionaires also are unconstitutional. The bailout of Mirzan Mahathir’s shipping ’empire’ is unconstitutional -n sequestration of billions worth of taxpayer monies is criminal. Asking for 750K in funeral funds for CM’s and 120K for assemblymen by CM Y.B. Lim Guan Eng is unconstitutional and shows vested interest and conflict of interest – if this was asked for by a 66.6% quorum by the people, then no issue, but who in their right mind would want to assign tax payer monies to some idiot ex-politician’s funeral? Giving away of Oil Blocs because one is easily flattered also actionable and the giving away itself REVERSIBLE by the Judiciary for being unconstitutional (yes a PM’s decision to give oil blocs away can be reversed by the Judiciary, Supreme Judges, did that office go to your head that it was meant to bodek with than protect national interests?). The continuation of LGBT hate espousing Section 377B is unconstitutional and against the Human Rights Charter.
Note 1
Finally . . .
All of the above are actions that the Judiciary should consider TREASON and that the police should take politicians writing those to jail for. Do you know what your job is anymore Judiciary and Police? Finally, instead of further globalist interests, the international UN or NAM and BRICS(PIIGS?)  type organisations should register their condemnation via letter to the public of the offending judge in any country neglecting all such actions as listed above.
ALL judges who do not know what they are supposed to prevent or when to act against officials who have allow the above crimes against humanity, to help Malaysia as well very much in the way the Australian MPs condemned Anwar’s sodomy case should have their degrees removed from the bestowing Universities.
Agong and Sultans, know you not what the country is coming to? Or have pursuit of business interests even diverted our last bastions of Sovereignty in a sea of corruption and a sense of non-country? One sovereign to another, any who are left awake, please deal justice on all above and 3 items’ counts or Malaysia is finished, as even the littleest media portal now serves political rather than national interests. Wakey, wakey, Malaysia 3rd world country-isms needs addressing . . .

The problem Tory ‘feminists’ face – Suzanne Moore – guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 25 January 2012 20.45 GMT

Even a vibrant Conservative MP such as Louise Mensch can’t avoid the fact that austerity is stripping us down to very old gender roles

‘Up pops Louise Mensch, rebranding feminism in her own image.

“Women taken seriously shock!” No, not a headline from this week, but a response to the four women who spoke at the Leveson inquiry about how the media portrays us. Anna van Heeswijk (from Object), Jacqui Hunt (Equality Now), Heather Harvey (the rape charity Eaves) and Marai Larasi (End Violence Against Women) made their case with quiet assurance, and were listened to with courtesy. Their evidence, shockingly enough, was deemed worthy of censorship and could not be shown to the sensitive souls of the inquiry, even though the images of women they had gathered came from mainstream papers that any child can buy in any newsagent. This is as good as it gets. You don’t challenge Page 3 or they do to you what they did to Clare Short.

Rebekah Brooks, of course, did not ban Page 3 as editor of the Sun; she embraced it. Is she one of the women in high positions who do not encourage other women, who want to be “alone of all her sex”? It’s the new USP: the sisterhood is fantasy. I don’t want to burst your bubble but women, like men, are all different. Clearly the words “feminism”, “equality” and “women’s rights” are interpreted differently in different contexts. It is certainly possible to make alliances over particular issues. And we do. It’s called politics.

Here at the inquiry was one such issue. Leveson listened as he was told systematically what we have known for years. Rape, abuse, violence and the murder of women are often reported in a sensational and titillating way. The victims, even when they are children, are often held somehow to blame. Pictures of semi-naked women whose bodies are up for scrutiny have become our societal screensaver. This is but a side-issue for Leveson, one of many, for why did he not discuss “sexism” with male editors or with Richard Desmond, whose media business is founded on porn?

Another issue beyond Leveson’s remit is that of women as consumers. There is not a newspaper or a TV show that is not chasing the female pound right now.

Commercially and politically, I can see that pulling away from victimy and drab feminism in favour of being chic and individually entrepreneurial – the new, fun kind of feminism that can’t get enough of men or makeovers – works. So again up pops Louise Mensch, rebranding feminism in her own image: hip, uplifting, go-getting. It’s all cool except don’t mention the C-word. Class. Or that downer thing, victims. Some women don’t see themselves as victims. They are victims. They are beaten and abused, they don’t vote and gasp (!) don’t have their own small businesses. Sometimes collective politics means simply looking out for the weakest rather than pushing oneself up to bellow with the strongest.

The Mensch way, though, is apparently Tory “feminism”. Ed Vaizey, one of the good guys who, as Mensch says, “has our backs” (as opposed to our fronts?) is going to broker a meeting between Nadine Dorries and influential people in the media. Lovely, if not the teensiest patronising?

Where Tory feminism makes possible sense is on this issue of sexualisation. For there is a mish-mash of freemarket fundamentalism but a coyness around the “flaunting” of female sexuality. Even Cameron realised that the Squeezed Middle/Mumsnet/Hardworking Whatevers do not like padded bras for eight-year-olds or to see women in fake lesbian poses when buying Monster Munch.

This is uncomfortable territory for the Tories because if everything is left to a deregulated market, then everybody is up for sale. This hypersexualised culture is not new, but its means of transmission are. What initially drove the Suffragettes was widespread prostitution and venereal disease. This was the price poor women paid to uphold “Victorian values”. The early suffrage movement wanted to protect women as well as give them a modicum of power. Emmeline Pankhurst joined the Tories herself, many years after women had been given the vote. But where does this supposed Tory/feminism crossover falter?

Right here on the debate over reproductive rights, sexuality and the way women are portrayed in the media. For much hinges on whether we regulate or let capitalism go about its natural business. Feminism has been the territory of the left because it recognises nothing will change without challenging the status quo. We do not exist “outside” of this market and the market says if something sells then sell it, even if it’s an image of a child or abuse. None of this is to do with whether women such as Mensch look great, it’s about a central tenet of almost any strand of feminist thought: control over one’s own body.

The context in which all female bodies are now exposed, as revealed at Leveson, is heavily sexualised. This is not balanced by images of women in power, in control or even in clothes. It’s that simple. Austerity is stripping us down to very old gender roles, despite the efforts of a few vibrant women MPs such as Mensch. The new poor are fallen women failed by feckless men. This is no feminist future, for it is indeed familiar. It looks exactly like the past. That, after all, is what conservatism is.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Taking of advantage of financially compromised women is unethical. Men though are spiritually compromised without female sex workers to keep their ‘spirit’ (for those who know or have one anyway) ‘protected’. Womenfolk need to know that without secrecy and privacy, no country can progress. If the sex worker par excellence Pandora, will not be the box, the nation will have no chance, and if wives do not play the part, men will have no ‘harbour’.

Between the downfall of the nation and a safe place for men’s sexuality to ground what innovation and progress a nation may make, no feminist movement would even survive without sex workers who are the first line of defense spiritually of a nation. ‘Mensch’ who can inspire such awareness, should be working on the right side of the issue, legalize the trade or none may move forward without great cost to the self.
