Keep Skin

Some people really have no idea of the situation they are in and still think they have rights to demand things.

As a disclaimer to you dumb people, that I am not being racist when I talk about what is coming next. I just read in the news that Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu is unhappy that he did not get a minister post in the government's new cabinet line up.

I think it was pretty pathetic that he actually tried to get others involved in his problem. He stated that there was only one MIC (Malaysian Indian Congress) representative as a main minister and two others as deputy ministers. He even went as far as to drag in the Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon, saying that if Koh could be made a senator and a minister, that he should have been accorded the same privilege.

That is a contradicting use of the word. A privilege is given to a person not necessarily deserving it. The way he speaks is as if he should be given a position for what is due to him. As a young citizen of this country, I may not have as much "experience" as others claim to have, but my ability of basic logical sense would say this...

  1. In the many years of unsatisfaction shown by the people of his performance
  2. his failure to convince the people, especially only through verbal means
  3. his failure to even help his own community, the Indians, which now are tired and distrustful of him
  4. members in his own party wishing for him to step down

You would think that would be more than hints for him to just back off. I would think with the "earnings" he has over the years, he would be wise to quit while he is ahead before tripping over something that will cause a greater loss.

No. Instead, he demands a position in the new government's line up. Personally speaking, I have not really read any articles of him detailing his accomplishments for the country and for his community. In fact, when the mention of tolls ripping people off comes into mind, the first name that usually appears is his. Only until recently when the Opposition party's members (Tony Pua being one of them! Woot!) were pushing their propositions on lifting the burden off the people when it comes to tolls, that the government said that they would look into it.

After that only did the MCA suddenly "took initiative" to present their suggestions as to how do the same albeit with a lacklustre method compared to that of the Opposition's.

Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu speaks as if the Indians are not represented in the new cabinet line up, when there is a fair number, though not necessarily from MIC itself. Which should not be the problem at all since they are all under the same coalition which is Barisan Nasional.

The ruling government always talks about the disunity in the Opposition's coalition. What about this then? At least the Opposition still support each other and respect the decisions made because they know that it is for the greater good of the people and the country. As shown in the previous political events where even DAP and PAS publicly showed support for each other despite their different polarities.

Examples being that the non-Malays actually voted for PAS in the recent by-election at Bukit Gantang, uniting together to stand against a common foe. The PAS spiritual leader even supported and encouraged a DAP representative regarding the latter reciting lines from the Quran. Of course all the shroud of lies that we have been fed during the school days have been dispelled thanks to likes of independent writers and news providers. Especially Raja Petra Kamaruddin.

I hope that the people of this country will see educating themselves as a constant, a way of life. Knowledge is power. Use your wisdom and knowledge to determine what is truth and what is false. Do not take the words of others easily for yourself without first understanding and finding out if its true. Heck this is one of the simple facts of life. Sadly many people are unaware.

well, he might get a position if he wasn't that retarded
saying things like 'hisap dada' and 'besar kemaluan saya' won't help

oh yea, just so you know, the 1Malaysia concept isn't really a concept, it's just the name of Najib's blog and nothing more and this blog says nothing about 1Malaysia
