Digging out the worms before the Malaysia 12th General Election

First of all, Happy Pai Thnee Kong. It is the 9th day of Chinese New Year and the birthday of the Jade Emperor or heaven god who is the highest god of all the gods for those Chinese who worship deities and gods. You are going to hear a lot of firecrackers tonight.
Now that we know the polling date is on March 8th for the Malaysia 2008 elections, all bloggers are digging out the worms before voting day. Of course, I am doing that too because there is nothing more thrilling than to be ahead of the other politicians blogs. In case Malaysians mudah lupa, please read the posts by Pablo who is a lawyer by profession. He has all the serious facts and figures on Malaysia election.
Meanwhile, if you hate politics, never mind. I hate it too. But I do have many previous posts that are worth reflecting.
Undi Barisan Nasional happens to bring up my old post in Bahasa Malaysia. It was a post where the minister in the Prime Minister department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz supported Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Musa Hassan’s suggestion to charge Nurin Jazlin’s parents for failing to take care of the little girl. Eventually, adik Nurin was found brutally raped and murdered. Until today, the police still couldn’t catch the culprit. Then, the same crime happened to adik Sharlinie. And the little girl is still missing.
Then, let’s not forget all those cases of people suffering during the Johor floods. In the end, it was the power of the volunteers from the various charitable bodies that helped those victims in Johor while our PM was holidaying somewhere on a yatch.
And to my fellow Christians, let’s take note what Kumpulan Maya UMNO insinuated about Christians.
Let’s also not forget the cases like Gan Eng Gor. Think of how many cases where these conversions issue have cropped and yet, our top ministers refused to move a finger to help. None of the MCA or Gerakan or MIC ministers (heh) came forward to help those non-Muslims family. Only Lim Kit Siang talk about it.
If you are a blogger or read blogs, you must remember how many names those ministers flung at us. These are the very people who spend billions to IT here IT there, talking about information technology, cyber here cyber there. Yet, these people are the ones who call us gobloks, beruk, liars and try to censor the net with cyber police and censor Youtube during Namewee case.
Then, let’s remember the issues of tearing down surau, evicting squatters, places of worships and all those actions done by the respective majlis perbandaran or council. Do you remember the chaos at Kampung Berembang? All of these poor folks suffering because they are too poor to built legal homes? Meanwhile….remember the palace of Datuk Zakaria and how he is enjoying his istana now?
Oh yes, please tell me if Lingam’s secretary is saying that the ACA which is the anti-corruption agency bribed her with RM3K to drop the case against the top government officers? Is that what Lingam’s secretary implied? I am too dumb to understand but that’s how I see it.
There are plenty of other issues that affect us, the regular folks. We do not even need to talk about the major ones because all these little issues are already enough to tell us to vote for a change.
Tell them we do not want childish acts like the Penang MPPP who accused the reporter when his technician focussed on her thighs “If the dress was not sexy, the incident would not have happened.”
Arrggh…once I start, I cannot stop. I bet many of you remember more reasons not to undi barisan nasional. Please refresh each other’s memories before the 12th malaysia general election. Remember, keep March 8 free for the pilihanraya malaysia. Heh.
