Guan Eng: Local elections under EC’s purview Thursday, February 2, 2012 – 22:14 by Llew-Ann Phang

In Election Commission, Justice, Law, Malaysia on February 2, 2012 at 7:13 pm

GEORGE TOWN: It is the Election Commission’s (EC) responsibility to conduct local government elections, says Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

He reiterated this in response to a recent statement by the commission’s chairman, Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof, who had said Penang and Selangor could hold local elections should they want to, but without the EC’s involvement.

“If we do this, we will be going against the law because the Elections Act is still being enforced. This falls under federal law and we must comply and uphold this.

“We must practise what we preach, so we must comply. Let’s not break the law.We don’t want to jeopardise the legality of the councillors or decisions of local councils,” Lim told a press conference at the state administrative complex in Komtar, yesterday.

When told about alternative ways in which councillors could be elected, at non-governmental organisation or Rukun Tetangga levels and then appointed to Penang City Council or Seberang Perai Municipal Council posts, he said: “Let’s not take these things lightly. We want to hold proper elections.”

He said the state had sought constitutional lawyers’ help and advice, and was making an application seeking a declaration for the EC to conduct local elections.

“We do not want the legality of decisions made by councils and councillors questioned. These are some of the realities we have to face.

“If we were the federal government, we could amend the law, but we are governed by the federal law, and so we have engaged lawyers for this purpose.

“(Former prime minister) Tunku Abdul Rahman had said once peace is restored, local government elections (which ceased to be practised in the 1960s) will be restored and it is our hope this will come to pass.”

The Penang government has instructed the state legal adviser to issue a gazette notification exempting local authorities there from Section 15 of the Local Government Act 1976 as a precursor to seeking a court declaration to compel the EC to conduct local elections.

“This is something that will take time but it is in the process of being done,” said Lim.

Citing a previous letter to the EC, he said the commission replied it was impossible to hold local elections in adherence to the same provision, resulting in the Local Government Elections Act to be of no force and effect.

“Clearly, the Local Government Elections Act authorises the EC to conduct elections for local authorities in Malaysia.

“It is, therefore, perplexing that the EC chairman continues to refuse to conduct local government elections in Penang as it is the only legal authority empowered to carry out the elections.

“The state has no choice but to seek a court declaration compelling the EC to obey and abide by the state’s directives.”

Wheres all that attitude when hurling meaningless ill aimed insults that waste the taxpayer’s money in Parliament? If the EC is doing something illegal by UN standards, it is up to people like YB CM Lim Guan Eng to take up the issue and file lawsuits, not accede as if nothing can be done. We are living in a global village now, not a Penangite Tempurung. Are you sure you’re the right man for the job of Chief Minister? Who voted you in as Chief Minister? Oh right, Guan Eng’s dad ‘golden parachuted’ Guan Eng there.

In a one man one vote system (1.5 million Penangites vote at 66.6% minimum quorum, like the USA’s presidential vote) which DAP has no capacity to conceptualise (like the cave man before fire), Lim Guan Eng would very likely not even be on the EXCO in Penang. Try quorums and direct democracy, probably 75% of DAP’s ‘Supremos’ including Guan Eng and dad Kit Siang would be kicked out immediately being based on nepotism and oligarchy (also limitless terms) than anything else.

Complain to the ‘UN Commission for Election Practices’ or what not, don’t tell us it’s entirely up to the EC – the EC is still run entirely by vested interest politicians placed there by the BN coalition. This lack of PR coalition or even non-political party affiliated representation in the EC has not even been mentioned by Guan Eng to the UN in the context of stating the EC’s actions as purely biased and thus getting UN to require the EC to place Opposition and neutral non-party panellists in the EC. The UN can well get NATO to breathe down Libya and Tunisia and now Syria’s necks about election problems, so Malaysia should be no different. More like a crypto-lapdog waiting for 750K funds, why aren’t you doing this yet Guan Eng, new leadership is needed if you go ‘. . . ho hum EC decides everything . . . ‘ and go back to sleep  . . . you call yourself an opposition leader or even minority race leader?

Genetic Modification Gone Wild: 10 Signs That Our World May Be Destined To Resemble A Really Bad Science Fiction Movie

In dhimmi, dhimmitude, education as a spiritual weapon, Fundamentalism, hegelian dialectic, Islam, media tricks, Muslims, political correctness on February 2, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Did you know that today scientists are actually producing mice that tweet like birds, cats that glow in the dark, “monster salmon”, “spider goats”, cow/human hybrids, pig/human hybrids and even mouse/human hybrids?  The very definition of life on earth is changing right before our eyes.  Many scientists believe that genetic modification holds the key to feeding the entire planet and healing all of our diseases, but others are warning that genetic modification could literally transform our environment into a desolate wasteland and cause our world to resemble a really bad science fiction movie.  For decades, scientists around the globe have been fooling around with DNA and have been transplanting genes from one species to another.  But now technology has advanced so dramatically that just about the only thing limiting scientists are their imaginations.

The things you are about to read about below are truly bizarre.  In recent years, science has really “pushed the envelope” and scientists all over the planet are quite eager to push it even farther.

But is genetic modification really safe?  Just because we have discovered that we can do something does that mean that we should rush forward and do it?

Recent films such as “Splice” have highlighted some of the potential dangers of genetic modification, but most scientists don’t see any reason to be concerned.

In fact, in most countries scientists seem very eager to push regulators to allow them to go farther and farther.  In quite a few countries there are very few boundaries left.

This is a point that I made in an article I authored for another blog called The Future….

At this point there are very few restrictions remaining on fields such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, synthetic biology, cloning and genetic modification.  All over the world, scientists are feverishly combining different kinds of animals together, adding plant genes to certain animals, and even putting human DNA into plants and animals.  Life as we know it is literally changing, and it is very hard to tell what the future is going to look like if all of this continues.

Sadly, most people have no idea what is going on out there.  Most people believe that scientists only have our best interests at heart and that they would never do anything “weird” or “dangerous”.

Well, read the following examples of genetic modification below and decide for yourself whether or not things have gotten out of control.

The following are 10 signs that our world may be destined to resemble a really bad science fiction movie….

#1 In China, scientists have inserted human genes into the DNA of dairy cow embryos.  At this point, approximately 200 hybrid cows have been successfully produced.  These cows can produce milk that is virtually identical to human breast milk.  The scientists hope to have huge herds of these cows producing an alternative to human breast milk soon, and they hope to have this “milk” sold in global supermarkets within 3 years.

#2 In Canada, scientists at the University of Guelph in the province of Ontario have produced what they are calling “enviropigs”.  These “enviropigs” have had genes from mice spliced into them, and according to the scientists they produce less phosphorous in their poop so they are being touted as environmentally friendly.  Authorities in both the U.S. and Canada are evaluating whether or not to allow these “enviropigs” into the food supply.

#3 Scientists in Japan have created a genetically modified mouse that tweets like a bird.

#4 One U.S. corporation can now produce a very muscular “monster salmon” which can grow up to three times as fast as normal salmon do.

#5 Science can now produce cats that glow in the dark.  A genetically modified cat created by scientists named Mr. Green Genes was the very first fluorescent cat in the United States.  But Mr. Green Genes was not the first “glow in the dark cat” in the world.  That honor went to a cat created by a team of scientists in South Korea.

#6 In Japan, scientists have discovered that they can grow rat organs inside of mice.  The researchers hope to use the same technology to grow human organs inside of pigs.

#7 But Japan is not the only one doing this kind of research.  In Missouri, entities that are part pig and part human are being grown with the goal of providing organs for human transplants.

#8 Scientists at Rockefeller University have injected human genes into mice.  These “humanized mice” are being used to study the spread of the hepatitis C virus.

#9 U.S. scientists have discovered that they can actually “grow” new human organs from scratch.  The following is a quote from a recent Newsweek article….

It might sound like science fiction, but growing new organs from scratch has already become reality. In addition to bladders, scientists have engineered new skin, bone, cartilage, corneas, windpipes, arteries, and urethras.

#10 Believe it or not, a company in Canada known as Nexia has actually taken goats and has genetically modified them to be part spider. The genetic modification process causes these “spider goats” to produce spider silk protein in their milk.  This spider silk protein is collected, purified and spun into incredibly strong fibers. These fibers are apparently more durable than Kevlar, more flexible than nylon, and much stronger than steel.

As frightening as all of those examples may sound, the truth is that the genetic modification of plants has gone even farther than the genetic modification of animals has gone.

Today, approximately 93 percent of all soybeans and approximately 80 percent of all corn in the United States have been genetically modified.

Considering the fact that corn is literally in thousands upon thousands of our food products, there is a really good chance that you consumed some genetically modified food today.

Are you certain that it was safe?

Genetically modified crops have been linked to organ disruption in at least 19 different studies.

In addition, there is also an increasing body of evidence that suggests that genetically modified food actually alters our digestive systems.

Do we really know everything that we need to know about genetically modified food?

Perhaps we should have investigated all of this sooner.  The truth is that once genetically modified crops get out into the wild it is just about impossible to put the genie back into the bottle.

A while back, a genetically modified strain of maize that was banned in the EU was accidentally sown all across Germany.

Oops.

But once it got out there was no way of totally eliminating it.  In fact, in many areas of the world genetically modified crop strains are breeding natural crop strains out of existence.

We are permanently changing the natural order of things.

Is that really a great idea?

Sadly, things are only going to become much more bizarre in future years.

DARPA’s current budget actually includes money that is allocated for the development of this kind of technology.  Apparently the goal is to someday produce “super soldiers” with “edited DNA” and implantable microchips.

In this article I have only talked about the stuff that we know about and that is admitted in the mainstream media.

So what is going on out there that we don’t know about and that the mainstream media is not admitting?

In past decades, genetic engineering was extremely expensive and it was only done by top scientists.

Today, even college students are transplanting genes and creating new lifeforms.  There seems to no longer be any taboo on monkeying around with the fabric of life.  The field of “synthetic biology” is extremely hot right now and very small companies are “creating” new plants, new animals and even new microorganisms in garages and basements all over the globe.

So what will the future bring?

Will genetic modification enable us to feed the entire world and will it enable us to heal all of the horrible diseases which afflict us? Or will genetic modification result in a nightmarish world where “man-made life” and twisted human-animal hybrid creatures are free to roam and breed? Will our bizarre experimentation destroy the environment and turn this planet into a bizarre wasteland?

Only time will tell.

Heavily modified food animals COULD be viable IF there are clear GMO and non GMO sections in super markets (if not entirely separate super markets) for eating.

Such GMOs if not to influence the Human gene pool, should only be for married couples who do not intend to reproduce or have reproduced and do not intend to reproduce further (i.e. sperm and eggs from such persons will no longer be allowed to be carried to term – or if carried to term must be properly indicated – note that the GMO Human could be as dangerous or more so than HIV and could like the African wasp destroying Honeybees be like GM Humans breeding out non-GMO eating Humans). This would set tha age of consent for eating such heavily modified GMOs at around early 20s.

The wealthy or those growing their own non-GMO food would certainly decline though.

One could see elephant sized pigs, super mutant soldiers, furries or what not, with people ‘growing’ breast and whatever body part implants, but interactions with those useing these would be quite difficult to manage especially among the LC minded given the profligate views on sex these days.

A whole new cootie/glove wearing/prophylactic culture would need to be prepared long in advance, and new forms of racism and discrimination between GMO Humans (or demi humans), and non GMO Humans would be even harder to deal with.

Try telling a half-spider to be friends with a whole man when whole men merely a shade of colour or faith different, vene different sects within a faith who have warred for 1000s of years. Conversely the sheer differences could bring non-GM humans closer together, but at the expense of GMOs as well. This is something those writers and purveyors of bestiality and ‘furry’ culture have alluded to in their nonsense, but will need to formalise education about, even as they willingly butcher massive beings like whales who’s brains are many times the size of mankinds’ for meat, while they poison the environment?

Alot of serious work needs to be done but all we hear is about the next war or how a plutocrat has destroyed the lives of entire nations. Where are the qualified and enlightened these days? Languishing selfishly in their enclaves or cynically plotting overthrows of nations?

ARTICLE 1

The mind is willing, the flesh is weak – Wednesday, 25 January 2012 Super Admin

So, what we are seeing here, which Tony Pua did not address, is actually a fight to become the next Prime Minister. And for those (other than Anwar) who want to become Prime Minister, they will need to first weaken Najib before they bring him down, like what they did to Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

“It will leave Najib in history as the prime minister who failed moderation. Without sincerity and political will from the top leadership, Perkasa has the tacit approval to do its worse in the light of the upcoming general elections to sow fear into the hearts of the Malay-Muslim community in order to protect the vote bank for Umno.”

That was what Tony Pua said today (you can read the full news report below). Pua also said that while the prime minister was pushing for Malaysia to lead a global movement of moderates for peace, he was actually creating a fertile ground in breeding extremist racism and religion.

Actually, what Tony Pua said was not too far off the mark. But Tony Pua was only looking at one side of the coin. A coin has two sides. So let me talk about the other side, which Tony Pua did not address.

Politics is about power. And the objective of power is to try to retain it and not lose it. And power at the top is about becoming the Prime Minister and to try to remain as Prime Minister without getting ousted.

Hence, everything that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak says and does must be with this in mind.

Note that Najib is not the only one who wants to become Prime Minister (or retain his post as Prime Minister). Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin also wants to become Prime Minister. So do Anwar Ibrahim, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, Khairy Jamaluddin, Mukhriz Mahathir, Ali Rustam, Muhammad bin Mohd Taib, Khir Toyo, Hishammuddin Hussein, Mohd Isa Abdul Samad, Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik, Rais Yatim, etc. In fact, I can add at least another ten or so names to that list.

That makes about two dozen or so aspirants. And I am not including those from PAS and only one name from PKR. If not, the list would run into at least 30 names.

But only one can be the Prime Minister. And if anyone else wants to become the Prime Minister then he (or they) will need to topple the incumbent. Of course, if Anwar wants to become the Prime Minister then he will have to ensure that Pakatan Rakyat gets to form the next federal government. For all the others, they will have to embark upon an ‘inside job’.

So, what we are seeing here, which Tony Pua did not address, is actually a fight to become the next Prime Minister. And for those (other than Anwar) who want to become Prime Minister, they will need to first weaken Najib before they bring him down, like what they did to Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

“It will leave Najib in history as the prime minister who failed moderation,” said Tony Pua. That is true. But what Tony Pua did not state is: will Najib have failed moderation because he is not sincere about moderation or will he fail because he is being blocked from moderation?

Now, when I use the word ‘sincere’, please don’t get me wrong. I am not using the word ‘sincere’ in the context that you and I understand it. I am using that word in the context of how a politician would see it.

To a politician, sincere is doing what can get him votes and allow him to retain power. Hence, Najib’s ‘sincerity’ means doing what the voters want (in particular the non-Malay voters who he needs to win back after losing them in 2008).

Nevertheless, he is ‘sincere’, in the political context, about moderation. And if he can convince the voters about his sincerity, in particular the non-Malays, then Barisan Nasional can be assured of winning back many of the seats it lost in 2008 and Pakatan Rakyat can be reduced to less than 80 parliament seats and maybe just two states or so.

That would mean Najib would have performed superbly, going by the standards of the 2008 general election. And that would also mean there is no reason to oust Najib like they did Abdullah Badawi after the disaster of the 2008 general election.

To justify kicking Najib out, Barisan Nasional must lose more than 90 parliament seats and at least five states, maybe even six. Of course, Barisan Nasional will still form the federal government but Najib would have to go. Then Malaysia will see a new Prime Minister, but still one from Umno.

Does Najib really have control over Perkasa? Who controls Perkasa? Would Najib dare clamp down on Perkasa and incur the wrath of the hidden hand behind Perkasa? Is Najib ready for political suicide and suffer the fate of Abdullah Badawi?

Tony Pua is focusing on the issue of Perkasa. That is being a bit naïve. Tony Pua failed to mention Pekida. Pekida is more dangerous than Perkasa. Perkasa, which is headed by Ibrahim Ali, only screams and shouts, and once in a while holds demonstrations of 100 or so members.

Pekida, however, is more militant. Pekida is the IRA of Umno, not Perkasa. But you do not see them or hear them. There are many members of Pekida in the government, in Umno, in the military, in the police force, etc. This is the real paramilitary force of Umno. In fact, Abdullah Badawi is the leader of Pekida in Penang and Dr Mahathir the leader of Pekida in Kedah. And we have Pekida in Selangor and all over Malaysia, all headed by key Umno leaders.

Tony Pua should not over-simplify the issue. The problem is not Najib. The problem is the hidden hands in Umno and the hidden ‘structure’, such as Pekida, that was set up soon after the race riots of 13th May 1969.

There are things that I sometimes can’t talk about. Sometimes we have to give an impression that we are not aware of what is going on so that we can better prepare our counter-strategy. But when Pakatan Rakyat leaders start going off-tangent and hit the wrong target, then I am forced to say my piece at the risk of revealing what is up our sleeve.

Some of you have been in this game since 2007 when the Bersih and Hindraf marches first exploded onto the scene. So I can quite understand why you look at things from only one perspective. We have been in this game since 1977, 30 years before that. And there are many things that have happened over the last 43 years since 1969 that many of you are not privy to. In fact, many of you were not even born yet then. [[[ *** So what if anyone is older, or richer or wiser? Some old or rich or wise people have been around too long doing nothing selfishly glorifyig in themselves to no purpose, they might as well not have been born, makes no difference if they’re here or not . . . *** ]]]

Moderate Malaysia in danger from Umno and Perkasa, says DAP

(The Malaysian Insider) – Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s failure to rein in Perkasa is jeopardising Malaysia’s name internationally as a moderate country, DAP’s Tony Pua said today.

“The game that Umno and Perkasa are playing, regardless of the outcome of the next general election, is a highly dangerous one which may forever tarnish Malaysia’s reputation as a moderate country,” the opposition lawmaker said in a statement today.

“It will leave Najib in history as the prime minister who failed moderation,” he added.

The DAP publicity chief was responding to the latest published remarks from Perkasa’s secretary-general who had said that “the faith of Islam, of Muslims is under siege in Selangor”.

He noted that the right-wing movement seemed to imply that Christians were likely to become more aggressive in their proselytisation attempts in Selangor with its Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim now in charge of Islamic affairs.

The religious portfolio was previously handled by conservative Datuk Hasan Ali, until earlier this month when he was sacked from Islamic PAS for repeatedly breaching the party’s official stand.

Pua noted that while the prime minister was pushing for Malaysia to lead a global movement of moderates for peace, he was actually creating a fertile ground in breeding extremist racism and religion.

The Petaling Jaya Utara MP pointed to the prime minister’s inaction against right-wing Malay movement’s growing increasing audacity in issuing statements that provoke fear and anger between Muslims and Christians in the country.

He added the fact that such statements were carried in mainstream media owned by the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) lynchpin, Umno, proved “Najib is either hopeless or devious in the fight against extremism”.

Pua raised again the 2010 attacks against houses of worship nationwide by extremists following a court ruling allowing the Catholic Church to publish the word “Allah”, and reminded that such “freedom provided Perkasa and its ilk… will not lead to any peaceful outcome”.

He said, “Without sincerity and political will from the top leadership, Perkasa has the tacit approval to do its worse in the light of the upcoming general elections to sow fear into the hearts of the Malay-Muslim community in order to protect the vote bank for Umno.”

Malaysia’s 28 million population is over 60 per cent Muslim, but more than half its citizens in Sarawak and Sabah, long considered the ruling BN’s vote bank, are predominantly Christian.

Tony is full of selective amnesia and biased thinking in spirit of law issues and careerism and limitless terms or nepotism. Can you trust a country to a person who is like that? And thanks for introducing ‘Voldemort’ (Perkida) to Malaysia. Perkida? I remember one Kida, that was the character from Disney’s Atlantis though, other than being rather ‘brown’, I doubt there is any similarity between the two.

You were saying? Pak Lah is such a bad guy?!? Well to most of us, he was among the most uninvolved PMs (also shortest reigning – due to nepotism issues) ever. To say he is part of some murderous secret society is just too much to believe. You’re part of the UMNO propaganda machine aren’t you RPK? We don’t hate UMNO in that way, now you made BN even more unvotable for the wrong reasons. Sick but effective, quite worthy of another half-blooder (beginning to see a pattern here?) . . . but too damn Jewish ALL THE SAME. Return to Malaysia and run for a seat honestly, don’t spout rubbish from afar which only proves you are a strawman.

ARTICLE 2

Pekida (Malaysia) – Sunday, 29 January 2012 admin-s by Hakim Joe – Malaysia Today
In the Pekida website, one of its mission statements read as such: “Kami berjanji mematuhi peruntukkan perlembagaan sebagai dan menjadi ahli yang berdaftar dan terus berusaha mencapai objektif pertubuhan supaya menjadi sebuah organisasi Melayu yang terulung.” (Hunga-Bunga! JK . . . ) Can anyone find fault with it? What if an Indian or Chinese organization states exactly the same thing (replacing the word Melayu with India or Cina)?

Pekida is an acronym for Pertubuhan Kebajikan dan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia, and it has such a low profile that even Wikipedia does not have an entry on it.

Pekida did not surface from its self-imposed hermitage until the circulation of an SMS warning about a gathering of Malay extremists in Kuala Lumpur in response to the Hindraf issue in 2007. Pekida is also known as “Tiga Line” and their flag consists of three colours; red, yellow and green, mimicking the traffic lights.

Pekida is not a new organization and has been around for quite some time. It was formed immediately after the May 13 Race Riots in 1969 and its main objective was to create a frontline in the event of another race riot, and because of its intricate ties to the government, Pekida’s major purpose has been somewhat diluted to include the retention of BN as the GOM and henceforth its subtle involvement as a major force to disrupt the Opposition as with the Perak Political Crisis in 2008 and Ops Lalang in 1987.

Pekida is not an isolated organization either. Since its inception forty and more years ago, its web of members include many highly placed political and military figures including prime ministers, cabinet members, government officials and high ranking police and military personnel. As such, it is a well-funded and well-organized group of paramilitary people and is seen to be the “fifth BN column”, and since the Razak Administration all Menteri Besars and State UMNO Chiefs have been high-ranking members of Pekida.

Both the Social Contract and Ketuanan Melayu principles were originated from Pekida. In a 2009 interview with the Pekida president, Jamaluddin Yusof, he said, “Ketuanan Melayu is important because if we do not become tuan (masters) we become hamba (servants).” Does this mean that all Malays should become tuans and all other races exist as hambas to serve them? If such is the case, what is different between Ketuanan Melayu and Apartheid?

Pekida, like Umno, MCA and MIC are all about race segregation, quite similar to the South Africa apartheid of before. In the 2011 address to the Pekida general assembly, PM Najib pledged that his party, Umno, would not allow the Malay race to be oppressed in its own land, “We will not surrender even an inch!” As such, the race issue becomes an essential formula for BN to attempt to retain power; not social, economic or other more important factors.

In the Pekida website, one of its mission statements read as such: “Kami berjanji mematuhi peruntukkan perlembagaan sebagai dan menjadi ahli yang berdaftar dan terus berusaha mencapai objektif pertubuhan supaya menjadi sebuah organisasi Melayu yang terulung.” Can anyone find fault with it? What if an Indian or Chinese organization states exactly the same thing (replacing the word Melayu with India or Cina)?

For an organization that declares the safeguarding of Malay Rights as their singular priority, it henceforth does not make much sense when they gave official warning to the organizers of the Free Anwar 901 rally, an event that has nothing to do with Malay Rights. Similar harsh warnings were given to the BERSIH rally organizers. The question begets now whether Pekida is actually protecting Malays or Umno.

In the recently released movie KL Gangster, it was exposed that the film producers used quite a few of Pekida’s “secret codes” in their scenes and that the KL Gangster hierarchy was also based on the Pekida own power pyramid. Kumpulan 77, Kumpulan Merah, Semerah Padi and Pewaris are all gangs formed by Pekida members of whom has gone rogue, so says Pekida (after the release of the movie, not before) and hence their house cleaning these days.

So, is Pekida an organized group of legalized gangsters (RM13 membership fees), a Malay Rights protector (are they absconding the Sultans’ job?), an Umno crony or a non-racist (even though they only accept Malays), non-political (even though the majority of their leaders are from Umno) and non-government organization?

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

Jamaluddin Yusof, he said, “Ketuanan Melayu is important because if we do not become tuan (masters) we become hamba (servants).” Does this mean that all Malays should become tuans and all other races exist as hambas to serve them?

If such is the case, what is different between Ketuanan Melayu and Apartheid? Hegelian dialectic. Why either or? Master or slave? How about ALL are equal and citizens, neither Master nor Slave? Master-Slave is only possible if both parties are into either roles my BDSM similar sounding proponent fellow citizen. Neither of all races here are into this tuan-hamba thing (except lapdog political parties and ‘ketuanan types’), we just want to live as equal citizens. This is not about who has the right to government goodies now is it?

At the end of all the b.s. we are all world citizens? Why so inward looking and communal? Also the race riots were a false flag to implement Emergency Laws by the colonial forces so they could make the races hate each other, so that the Colonials could be mediators and indirectly control Malaysia with half-blood princes like dr.Evil. Hope this is simple enough for Perkida to recognize. Colonial sickness affects the racists among Malaysians whatever political party they are from.

Qur’an (3:118)“O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than your own people, they do not fall short of inflicting loss upon you; they love what distresses you; vehement hatred has already appeared from out of their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater still; indeed, We have made the communications clear to you, if you will understand.”  This verse only warns Muslims not to take non-Muslims as friends (though Muslims are much friendlier with people who have lived beside them for a long time), but says nothing about equality being bad (we can not be friends but still live as equals, with separate no-entry areas for things either or both cannot abide by. Also Malaysia is a signatory of the UNHCR and must abide by Article 1, which is also parallel to the issue of avoiding the ‘Sin of Asabiya’. Ironically, Islam never was Malaysia’s native faith which is Nusantaran Animism.

Ask the non ethnic English citizens like Scottish, Welsh and Irish or especially Africans holding English citizenships about divide and conquer. Just watch Braveheart otherwise . . .

The Perniciousness of ZTP (keeping psychedelics illegal) – Wednesday, February 1, 2012

In drugs, Justice, Law, psychedelics on February 2, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Mmm . . . organic psychedelics . . . —er, I mean: Mmm, chocolates . . .

A pound? Half a pound? A few ounces? Or would you not smoke-use any organic psychedelics at all, once government made this announcement?

Suppose that I promised to give you free organic psychedelics for the next three years: How much organic psychedelics would you smoke-use today?

After all, you’re going to have free organic psychedelics for the next three years—seems silly to gorge on organic psychedelics today, when you can have as much as you’d like tomorrow, or next week, or whenever you want over the next three years.

So free organic psychedelics for the next three years? . . . uh, only not right now, thanks very much: I’m kinda stoned already. But then what if I said to you, “organic psychedelics is free now—but I’m definitely going to raise the price or make it illegal in the near term. In a month, organic psychedelics might be illegal—or then again, it might cost $10,000 an ounce. You would likely rush to stockpile, because tomorrow, you never know!” Well, obviously, to such an uncertain outlook, you’d go out and buy some organic psychedelics now—because tomorrow, it might well be unaffordable.

In fact, it seems quite obvious that if you don’t know when I’m going to raise the price of organic psychedelics, you’ll probably wind up buying—and smoke-useing—more organic psychedelics than if it was free. A paradox? Sure—but true.

In point of fact, if the organic psychedelics is free, you might not smoke-use any organic psychedelics at all. Every time you make the decision as to what to smoke-use, you might well find yourself saying the same mantra: “organic psychedelics is free—I can have it any time I want. So I won’t have any now.”

This is the problem Drug Prohibition and the Legal System currently have — and it’s their own stupid fault: They have promised to maintain idemocracy and freedom of expression when they have in fact announced this zero tolerance policy (ZTP) as the hallmark of their strategy to stop the use of psychedelics — — but then they’re surprised when businesses aren’t borrowing more. They’re surprised when lending is in fact contracting. They’re surprised when the American economy doesn’t stop using borrowing—and thus growing—like crazy.

So the American economy obviously doesn’t benefit from ZTP. In fact, it stagnates because of ZTP.

Leaving aside the deplorable notion that debt-fueled consumption is “growth”, businesses are not going to borrow to expand during the announced period of ZTP, because business owners will say, “I’m really not sure if my market is growing—and since I can get a low-interest loan for at least the next three years, I think I’m going to hold off on any expansion of my business, hold off on hiring new workers, and instead wait and see if the economy really does pick up. If it doesn’t pick up, I won’t have more debt to service. And if it does pick up, I can always borrow and expand later.”

“I can always borrow and expand later”: That’s what every sensible business owner is saying today. Why smoke-use free organic psychedelics now—when I can smoke-use it for free later? Why borrow for free now—when I can borrow for free later?

And of course, later becomes never.

See, mainstream economists presume that uncertainty—by definition—is bad. This is why the Narcs are doing this whole “transparency” thing: By announcing their interest rate targets, they think they are giving the markets security. They are trying to eliminate uncertainty insofar as their bailiwick is concerned, by making their legal policy predictable. Predictable? Hell, they’ve flat-out trounced it.

But uncertainty is not by definition bad. Uncertainty is essentially ambiguity about the future. And as any novelist (such as myself) can tell you, ambiguity per se can be bad—just as easily as it can be good. Why? Because uncertainty about the future can lead people to think that the future will be bad—but also lead them to think that the future might be better.

In fact, most people—especially business people—are fundamentally hopeful, occasionally to the point of delusion: Ask any person, and nine times out of ten, they will tell you that the future will probably be better than today. Ask a business person? Eleven out of ten will tell you that tomorrow will be better than today. After all, entrepreneurship attracts fundamentally hopeful people: Nobody starts or runs a business if they think they’re going to fail.

So if business people see their markets picking up—even if it’s only just a little bit—even if they’re only really imagining it—and if they are uncertain for how long this free Fed money will last—then they’ll jump at the chance to expand their market now: Borrow the free money now, expand now, pick up more customer now—and therefore hire more people now, and turn their irrational hope into a self-fulfilling virtuous circle.

But that’s not happening—because of ZTP.

Mainstream economists—and Ben Bernanke and his Merry Gang of FOMC Fools in particular—don’t get the value of uncertainty at all. They rightly realize that uncertainty about the future makes some people wary. But it can also make them take chances now—something that their rigid worldview cannot seem to entertain.

Thus the Fed insists on offering free money to the economy—and the economy insists on politely declining. Why smoke-use free organic psychedelics now, when I can smoke-use as much free organic psychedelics as I want later?

So then, if businesses—and the wider economy—do not benefit from ZTP, who does?

Why, the criminal cartels, prisons contractors and the Federal government from fines and confiscations of property! (Yeah, I know: How am I not surprised . . . ?)

See, the cartels depend om prohibition so they can keep prices high due to the ‘risk’ and ‘illegality’ factot . . . and promptly go out and justify allowances for the cronies, informers and uniforms, and adds massively to the expenditure bottom line. And ultimately to the bureaucrat’s bonuses. After all, the Federal government isn’t gaining twenty bucks for gas: It’s gaining a massive percentage of $400 billion a year—every year incresing yearly.

Thus the Federal government, that glutton for criminal collusion, also benefits from ZTP.

Worse still, ZTP is a disincentive to reduce the deficit and the overall debt. Since the Justice Department and the Federal Government are putting out 5 billion over the next three years, the Federal government will be under zero-pressure to legalise because it is more profitavle to keep this illegal though cost to citizen freedoms is tremendous. In fact, ZTP encourages democratic irresponsibility or dictatorship. After all, it is the rising coupon payment which eventually leads to rising debt levels being choked off.

ZTP doesn’t eliminate the Minsky Moment—that is, the Day of Debt Reckoning from costs incurred in anti-organic-psychedelic administration and imprisoning citizens. Rather, ZTP merely postpones it—while making it a whole lot bigger.

Thus the Federal Reserve’s zero interest-rate policy does not help businesses expand and thus hire more workers to restart the economy; it does not encourage banks to lend to economically productive sectors; and it does not get the Federal government to begin reducing the deficit, let alone the debt.

In fact, ZTP makes all these problems worse. Legalise organic-psychedelics because the ‘profits’ are dwarfed by incidental costs and human lives, loss of productivity (i.e. a regular 9-5/5-2 Joe Everyman who pays taxes and contributes to the economy in usual expenditures gets locked up for years at taxpayer expense, depriving the family of a parent and wasting away in prison unable to earn or spend. Is this the best way to destroy America or what?) as well for something that grows for free on the lawn. Prohibition also makes an easy way for terrorism to thrive, the greed from high profits which could be entirely removed because growing your own or buying at extra low government controlled prices makes criminality about psychedelics not worth their time! It’s just a comfort Nature gave humanity, who has any right to demand that Joe Everyman enjoying a joint or few is locked away at cost to the taxpayer?
