First it is
about the conception of the Jews. Could we
say more than 98% of the Muslims would say
that all Jews are bad, inhumane and
therefore must be destroyed ? I asked
several friends why they condemed the Jews
so much and the reply was 'it is stated the
Quaran'. I said no more.
remember my religious teacher narrated about
our Holly Prophet Mohammed gave protection
to a Jew. I believe there is something else
that we do not know beneath the hidden
context of the Quaran.
One of our
lecturers was a Jewish lady. There were
several Muslims in the class, the Egyptian
and the Nigerians. The first day the
lecturer told us where to get the Kosher
meat. Kosher meat is the meat slaughtered by
the Jews. Muslims can always eat such a meat.

GANGSTERISM DOES NOT PAY
gangsterism invite an immense hatred and
anger. What more if a politician is seen a a
head of a Mafia group. Graduate ministers do
not seem to use their intellect in doing

they advocate criminal act. And the use of
hoodlums and hooligans to intimidate
opposition leaders and other barbaric act
made people despise the party.

BN could learn

rowdiness and hooliganism among the UMNO
supporters. Otherwise he would be accused of
being a part of the movement.
If UMNO thinks
that it has done a lot to the people, it
does not need to hire hooligan or to
threaten the voters as what what Zahid had
done to the Rela group in Telok Intan. It

THE YOUNG PEOPLE
Young people who went for computer course

remember a few ITM student programmers
came to my school to sell their soft wares

show off, making fake pictures and clips
hoping to be handsomely awarded till they
grow 50. The sad thing is when they involved
themselves in politics that is heading
towards their destruction.
In the Face Book there had been many UMNO
supporters. One was fond of throwing slur on
Anwar before the GE13. Bad words were used
on the opposition party. When he went too
far I commented about the future of the
Malays who will become beggars in their own
land and hunting garbage for a living. He
responded saying 'I will never be a beggar'.
I also said that after the election the
citizens will suffer and PM will continue to
deceive the people.
After GE13 and prices of goods went up he
was away for some time and later he was seen
again but now with different tone. He
mentioned about being broke and had to
struggle for a living.
These were the young men being poisoned by

problems with their kids, schooling and

The young people who worked for UMNO by
faking facts and pictures created a big sin
that can never be forgiven. Hooliganism and

respected race. Instead they will be hated

Hamming in the

to be the joyous. It was one of the days

of 3 and more would be chatting jovially
somewhere else. While on
other days the band start to be populated in

on as early as 9 am. And all conversations
were in English even among the Malays. There

contacts. It has been a very long time that

I think there
were a few groups of hams who were very
close to each other, a kind of kinship;
Idris, Tunku Archiebald, Eshee and Rajamani
were in a team and close in rank. After the

the team could no longer hold together. When

came into being who started to stand up by
launching vicious attacks on the old-timers.
I didn't know for what reason. There was a
chaos that led to the downfall of MARTS. The
era of 'showing off' was taking shape, of
who were knowledgeable and who were not, who
was fit to be the leaders and who were not.

was told there are Sunday 40 meter net on
7.130. I did not go above 7.1 anymore I was
not allow to move beyond 7.1. And I don't even
hear old hams below 7.1 too.
I don't think
we could resurrect the joyous Sunday
anymore. Never. There are too many people
who love to transmit and passed bad
insulting remarks when people are talking.
There is no more monitoring on the part of
the authority like before when local
intruders would easily be caught and faced
the music. The situation today is beyond
description. It is best not to talk.
I have expected
the new 9Ms to revive the past by populating
the band and slowly form cohesiveness. They
too do not make themselves appear and known.
I would not know at least 30 new class A
hams. Once I was asked whether I knew so and
so, which I was not able to answer.
But there is
one thing that I know of what happen outside
the band. Hams would use their phones to
tarnish and lash another ham behind their
back, even to the extend of spreading a
character of a person throughout the nation.

" I don't beg, steal or join UMNO to feed my

Garbage hunting could either be a part time

items outside, and the hunters would not
have to open up the plastic one by one
anymore. Usable and saleable items like old
computers, old working washing machines,
radios and electric fans, shoes and dresses
could help those people. I felt it also
helped me in getting rid of those stuffs I
don't use anymore.

seeking my view on how to better themselves.
My quick answer had always been "Join UMNO".

element of cynicism. But that might work for

WHY I GO ON
CW ON 7.04224 ?
was an ardent SWL. First I used to beat the
two radios to resolve the SSB and CW
signals. Later, when I purchased ICF5900W,
it remained as my main receiver for a long
time. I taught myself Morse codes and
trained myself by listening to CW signals
and messages from everywhere. I was able to
read Morse before I obtained my ticket
around early '70's.
CW by Malaysian hams
were almost a weekly affair before the 80's.
Malaysians worked each other from 7.000 to
7.100. 9M2CF, 9M2CW, 9M2MW and 9M2FK were
the masters. The pairs would stay separate.
Those were old timers before the many of the
old-newer hams. When I became a ham, it gave
me much pleasure pounding my straight key,
working some of those stations. We were not
strictly on the CW-ONLY frequencies. We were
everywhere where the spots were empty. CW is
allowed from 07.00 to 7.100. There were no
complaints and they were no back-stabbing.
There were no showing off. Hamming were fun.
9M2GV, 9M2EG, 9M2DW,
9M2AV, 9M2AT, 9M2RJ, 9M2BS, 9M2DW, 9M2FZ and
a few others were very regular with me.
9M2DW and me would stay foot on a fix
frequency chatting for hours on end.
I am having a fuzzy
memory on those SWLs who came to see me.
Haris, 9M2ALL, said he visited my shack but
I don't remember it vividly. 9M2MZ, 9M2AT
and Hassan came to see me about the learning
of Morse. 9M2HC was working in Alor Setar
and we operated a Field Day station
together. Rusli came at a later period. My
house was opened as a Jota station for
several years. Some of those who came to
operate are now class B operators.
It was after 1982
onwards I started to stay away from the ham
band. When computer came in, I was engrossed
with IRC chat, and spent a lot of time on
developing computer softwares. My interest
faded. I forget ham radio for a while.
In 2002 I found my
FT-10B covered with cobwebs in my store.
Termites attacked my shack, eaten away books
I brought back from the United States. After
some hassling with the radio, I heard 9M2HC
talking to 9M2ZA on 7040. I had no proper
antenna. I could not transmit. Only Zainal
and Choo were on the band day after day. I
did not hear hose old timers anymore.
Only in December
2002 I was able to come on the band. The
frequency was 7.040 and it was SSB. Three of
use were active. I didn't know what happen
to the rest. Zainal was not a stranger. I

and Ari. He told me that MCMC has replaced
No wonder the ham
band was so quiet.
On 18th of July
after chatting with Zainal on 7.040, there
was a disturbance on the frequency. Zainal
was with Choo on 7040 until August 2003. I
would go to 7043 to call CQ when found
Zainal and Choo were in deep discussions.
But when Zainal was not there the
Indonesians were there.
From 21st August
2003 Zainal made almost a permanent choice
to come on 7.043 with me. It was he who told
me that to make CW heard on 7.043 I need to
go to 7.04224. So from August 2003 till
today, 9th. May 2014, I stay foot like a
faithful dog, calling even without any
reply. Old hams would not let people simply
call without a response, but that was the
story of the yester years.

THE GST MAN
He is so very
confident that GST will make people happy
because the price will come down. Why not
when foodstuffs were not taxed. Sorry, I
don't know his university education and his
discipline. I am sure university Professors
were the proponent of GST and learned enough
to predict the future price.
Many stupid laymen
like me simply do not buy the argument food
price will be down. There are taxes which
are not directly incidental to the food per
se. Like one local man says 'vegetable ,are
not taxed, but all other that required for
the growth of vegetables will be taxed. The
farmers will have to increase the price of
the editable plant' . Does he need a
university degree to foresee it ?
The government, Ahmad
Maslan, Tengku Adnan and the PM will be
ready to blame the middlemen and the
consumers again when there is a price hike
after GST. They would not believe it, not
because they are stupid but because they
were fooled by the rosy theory and the
written formula they see. Or may be they
already knew it, but find is pleasurable at
seeing people sufferings. In other words the
lying is planned and deliberate.

for their living will charge more though not

area, will have to be compensated in any

EATING STOLEN FRUITS
With the lucrative price of mangoes those

Several people who were at the dialysis

Thieves steal dokong, latex, papayas,

yourself would you buy a RM5K camera for

someone is selling me a stolen Icom 756 Pro3

It is forbidden for a Muslim to buy things
which he suspects as stolen even though they
are not. 96% of the buyers would not have

Once you start eating the known stolen food
you would always want to have them as long
as they are cheap and tasty. It is difficult
to find one out of ten people who fears God.
When Mahathir said about cutting hands will
leave the Malaysian Muslims without hands,
what he meant to say was the Muslims and the
Malays are thieves by profession. Nothing
else. To him stealing helps the government.

Prime Ministers were dumb and Najib is the
The first reason
given by Najib is people do not pay income
tax. The question is since when ? Since
Najib became the Prime Minister ? Indeed we
need to compare the time frame before and
during Najib's era. We could either talk
about failure and inefficiency in tax
administration or the lacking of money in
the government's coffer. Taxation and money
could have not been a very critical issue
before. And why only now Najib raise it as
an urgent matter ?
argued that more than 190 countries accept
GST. If it is bad, it would have been
rejected. Therefore GST is good.
To Najib a norm or
a standard is the number of approval. Before
Marijuana is illegal. Then it is a legal
drug in Holland. Grass is sold everywhere
and people are queuing up to inhale the
smoke. The government distributed free
condoms to prevent aid. Then state by states
in the United States is legalizing
Marijuana. Once the number has reached 190,
would Najib say that Malaysia will have to
make it legal ? If it is bad those countries
will not approve it. So it goes with trial
marriage, exchange spouses and public
GST is to cover
the borrowing and the huge spending by Najib
to keep his position. Corrupting the
citizens by hard cash for votes benefit
them. The more the money collected the more
Najib and UMNO can throw for permanent
survival, the more they can spend lavishly
and share among the cronies.
If GST would bring
the prices down then let it be to stand. But
will it ? Promises by Najib before the last
GE were broken, do you think Najib will not
lie again on commodities that will not be
taxed ? You see beautiful stuffs on papers;
item A.B, C will not be affected. But when
the time come they won't be left aside, and
Najib will come up with another excuses, one
after another. The lies and deception can go
on and on.
administer taxation before may not be a
success this time. Failures of government
agencies are reported in the news almost
everyday and in the auditor's report. There
is nothing that the government can do with
the increasing cost of living, the everyday
price increase. The enforcement officers
either gone asleep or could not do anything.
Who could you expect the officers to be
effective in their duties when the seats
during the parliamentary debate were empty ?
There is a favorite phrase used by Sanusi
Junid "The fish rots from it's head'.
Bad behaviors are
hard to discard and lies is nothing to those
who always practice it. They find pleasure
in cheating the people.
It is good to look
at what is happening in the United States

to go there, travel widely and observe well.
There is a scary situation of crime and
joblessness, homelessness, people losing
their jobs and houses. At any time our

numbers decreased. What happen to the money
We do not forget
the words of the government "Malaysia is
Malaysia. We are not ......If you don't like
our ways, go to those countries..." UMNO has
been pounding our own uniqueness over and
over again. And now Najib is talking
about copying from the other nations.
I had had a big
laugh when Ahmad Maslan said prices will
come down when GST comes into operation.

SIDE OF TRADE UNION
Several states in the United States acted
tough with the labor unions which were seen
as evils that brought bankruptcy to
the states. Unions of private enterprises do
not only push for inflation but also
weakened global market competitiveness.
Foreign commodities would be much cheaper
than the local products. In the United
States goods from China, Taiwan, India and
Indonesia flooded the market. Automobile
industries had to look for new strategy to
Government interference in imposing
higher import tax to protect the local firms
would be fatal once meeting retaliation.
Stringent laws on the firms could chase
those firms out of the country where labors
are cheaper and corruptions are lesser.
The fate of the workers in the private
sectors depend on the sale of the products.
MAS and Proton are two good examples. The
government cannot force the public to
finance those companies not owned by them.
True indeed the government could go bankrupt
if borrowing continues. It is very scary to
hear that Najib is borrowing 600 billion a
I just feel Najib could not care less to
the future of the country. Politician like
Mahathir owned properties in foreign land
where they can always go. Najib, in needing
votes and support, would bow to the demand
of the trade union. In Malaysia we have bad
and unproductive workers who could not be
fired. We don't have the law on the right to
hire and fire.
I would say there are at least 10% of the
government workers are problematic or
unproductive. Some are running their own
private businesses; house contractors,
restaurant owners, maid agents and even
frying mee in the evening.
Pushing the retirement age higher would
make the jobseekers hunting for other new
jobs and in new organizations. The expansion
of government agencies could not be as fast
as the number who leave schooling and
The jobless were driven to seek bread in
other areas. Many went to business, from
selling burger to becoming proxies to
politicians. Because shop lots are expensive
and difficult to get many are on the move. A
few found drug as a lucrative business.
It is worth to retain and reward
scientists and experts, skill and able
employees than the lazy unproductive workers
who the unions are protecting and awarding.
If Najib and Union leaders are scratching
each other's backs, it is not very healthy
to our economy.

ARE YOU ?
This is not a
new subject, like an American TV that
repeatedly screening old movies over and
over again, similar to our TV which has been
screening P.Ramlee's movies week after week.
But circumstances drove me to pen it once
again. How smart are you or how smart am I ?
Now on the
facebook any comment rejecting GST will be
met with harsh criticism by the people whom
I suspect as the UMNO Blue Army or similar
to it. UMNO had trained a few hundred
personnel to explain what GST mean. And
these people believed what was told. To them
those who opposed it are stupid morons who
do not understand it. To them the public
will profit much out of the policy. Indeed
the arguments and explanations were
convincing when looking on the surface. But
the GST itself is not relevant here. It is
the people who arrogantly pointing fingers
at the others as stupid and ignorant. They
think they are the smartest lots.
And a few days
ago a female university student humbly
showed me her fingerprint application
written in Visual Basic Dot Net, which is
very Greek to me. Her software amazed me,
and I realized I am nowhere compared to
millions of other people out there. How
could I be smarter than her ?
Today I met
someone who write program for aircrafts,
built sophisticated hardware, mastering
EPROM and PICs and construct a HF SSB

gathered alot from the discussion, and
gauged my knowledge in comparison. I know
where am I.

We tend to
think that we are the best in everything and
our ideal is beyond any challenge. When we
become so arrogant and selfish we would tend
to despise all others and perceive ourselves
as the most superior. It would be a big
problem when the less schooled and less
educated feel they are the greatest. Their
behaviors tend to be wild.
We all clearly
remember on what we were told by our
government; only listen to our national news
on MH370 and don't listen to the others. If
we did, what do we know by now ? If we
stepped out of the boundary we would have
seen the wider world, the island of Diego
Garcia, the Taliban shooting US drone and
more of the conspiracy theories. Our
government want us to have a single tracked
mind and to swallow as what we are told.
I would never
encourage laziness in any way. It could
create a stupid person with a narrow mind
but with big emotion and sentiment to
pompously depict the wrong which he thinks
is right. Even the real men of knowledge do
not agree with each other, traditional
science as oppose to quantum science, the
unending theory of wave characteristics and

what they were talking about. Fools quoted

what they heard. A person can continuously

wealth imbedded, unseen, but it enhance your
real-self. It is self-fulfillment.
How smart are
we ? There are others who are smarter. How
smart am I ? 90% of my students who are
better and smarter.
As you listen
to people on TV and read the news from any

When our hockey
team was beaten by Canada, it as not because

THE 1st OF MAY FOR ME
I knew today was
Thursday but I didn't know it was the 1st of
May till late last night. Yesterday I sent a
message to one university student who is
designing a thumbprint application to see
the administrator of the local
vocational college to witness the software I
developed. I would go to see her soon after.
Late at night I read her message that
Thursday is a Labor Day. I replied telling
her to meet me at the Seri Malaysia hotel.
As usual I went to
buy breakfast for my wife at 9.00 am and
continued for my usual brunch at Majid
restaurant. As soon as I arrived the owner
quipped, "Big prawn for you on the house." I
nodded my head but I took it as a joke.
After a delicious meal I went to the counter
for payment. "No. It is free for you." It
was a good day for a start.
At noon I went to
Seri Malaysia. I met the student who came
with her brother and father. She showed me
her application written in Visual Basic Dot
Net, which is Greek to me. The design was
superb but how could I help her with my zero
knowledge. She said her Professor wants the
application start with a certain module and
that she had a problem in printing the
listing. I asked her to look for the startup
module. She found it. And I asked her to
open the logging data file on a DataGridView.
I had a short time reading about it on the
website. I showed her how to populate the
datagridview. She gave a ponder, grasping
the concept and nodded giving a sign of
She thanked me and
handed me with some cash. I rejected it. The
father shook my hand with the cash, which
also refused to accept. The father is a
teacher and her mother too is a teacher. She
heard about my writing the application
through her mother. After a short talk with
her father we bade good-bye.
Evening was my
walking time. I had to go late because my
sister-in-law came to help in house
cleaning. She would come to see and arrange
things once a week. At 6.00 pm I found no
parking space at the jogging track. Cars
everywhere even at the no parking area and
on the doubled lined road. I had to park at
quite a distant away. I realized of the big
crowed due to the public holiday.
At night while
nursing my wife having her vowel I heard
Najib appealing the people to help the
government. TV was blasting and lambasting
those who went out to protest against GST. I
didn't stop to watch the TV. Instead I
switched it off.
I just went to the
super store looking at price tags. What was
sold at 80 cent before is now more than
RM4.00. Prices climbed so fast. It does not
come by itself. It is made by Najib's
policy, probably advised by some PHD
economists. Daim said Najib borrowed RM600
billion a year. My question is 'For what ?'
At the restaurant I heard a few UMNO's big
guns were discussing million dollar project,
about land price bought at RM5 and sold at
RM75 per square foot.
We all heard about
Rosmah and Najib's lavishness, about giving
money to friends and cronies, about the
missing billions, military purchases that
went astray, and about corrupting the public
for votes. Najib is appealing to the general
public to pay for the wastage and the stolen
billions. Let us ask ourselves how much was
spent to hang Rosmah's pictures in Putrajaya.
This is not a slender. It is true and you
are asked to pay for it.
This is the 1st.
of May 2014. We are going towards the
hardship. Najib is going for the repression
and the fear of any citizen who have
experience in holding military arsenal like
the rocket launcher. Those who were in the
battlefield fighting Israel under Hezbollah
and Hamas will be all be arrested. They
could be a threat not against Malaysia but
against the politicians.
seed of militancy and violence began to
surface. All eyes are watching and will be
nipped in the bud. All must be wiped out
before it has the chance to grow. But the
same happened in all other authoritarian
countries including Soviet Russia.
Najib's mode of
soft pitiful request will not sustain
forever as the high cost of living keep on
You may want to
argue about the rising number of wealthy
Malays. The Malays who are getting richer
are those in businesses which they had to
struggle on their own for years. The

UMNO's policies. At the same rate the number
of unemployment and joblessness are on the
increase. This will push crimes and the evil
ways of getting money in order to cope up
with expensive living.
governance can ensure peace and security,
not the practice of deception and lying,
wastage and lavishness.
If I have not
heard Najib appealing to the people to say
'aye' for GST, the 1st. of May 2014 would
have been a really beautiful day for me.

APA PASAL DR MAHATHIR
BERCAKAP PASAL RAKYAT MALAYSIA MAMPU
MENJATUHKAN KERAJAAN DENGAN GANAS ?
Sebelum ini Dr Mahathir menuduh PAS dan PR
hendak menjatuhkan kerajaan dengan ganas.
Tapi tuduhan tersebut tidak diambil indah.
PAS berulangkali sejak dari dahulu lagi
berkata bahwa perubahan kerajaan hanya akan
berlaku melalui pilihanraya.
Kini dengan tiba-tiba beliau menyebut
tentang rakyat boleh menjatuhkan kerajaan
dengan ganas kalau mereka tahu caranya.
Segala susunan ayat menampakkan apa yang
terdapat di dalam minda beliau. Beliau tidak
lagi berupaya menggantikan Najib sepertimana
beliau lakukan kepada Pak Lah. Rejim lama

yang terlalu boros sehingga membawa masalah
kepada ekonomi negara. Daim mengatakan Najib
berhutang sebanyak RM600 billion setahun.

pengiring keselamatan yang lebih dari 2 kali
ganda dari Dr Mahathir.

nampak jalan lain untuk menjatuhkan Najib

Respect of the
The way the Muslims show their final respect
to the dead is not the same as the
non-Muslims. As shown at Karpal's funeral
the Muslim PKR leaders bowed their heads.
The pictures went viral accusing those
Muslims bowing to DAP, and did not do the
same at Azizan's funeral. The Muslims take a
few seconds to recite a surrah, and prayed
at the mosque. The recital and prayers were
seldom pictured. I would not say those who
yelled insults at the PR leaders as stupid
but has an evil mind in their heads.
- An UMNO lawmaker was shouting her
head off, giving detail on the property
price in Penang. Land and houses were high
in states under BN, before and now. No
normal Malays can afford to pay RM500K to
RM10 million for a house in many states
including Selangor under BN. The working
people have to pay through their nose for a
RM500K. How about the prices in Johor Baharu
and Kuala Trengganu ? Will the lawmaker be
willing to sell her property for RM200K or
lesser ? Why BN government encourages
property development ? They say property
prices will fetch astronomical price in the
future. UMNO created hardship for the people
and now they are blaming the others. Aren't
that stupid or evil ?
Students - I had touched a lot on the
education system, the Malays and the drugs
and the morality of the Malays. UMNO had not
care about all those for many decades and
keep on devising an education system which
would further problems to the Malays. The TV
Malaysia was showing the concern of the UMNO
lawmaker of the Muslims students who can't
pray and even take ablution. Would she want
to be a champion ? However, with a due
respect to an UMNO Minister, Dato' Ahmad
Bashah, I would like to remind readers to
know that Dato' Ahmad Bashah had known about
the Muslim students when he was an Exco
member in Kedah a long time ago and
participated in the program of re-educating
such kind of students. The Ministry of
Education just would not care about the
illiteracy of the secondary school students
and the poor Muslims. I had brought up the
case to the higher officers but was ignored.

TO NEUTRALIZE THE BLAME
Now the government
is saying about the PBS, "Hey don't blame us
for any problem on PBS because we have asked

No matter what I do
not agree with the new system because it

to improve themselves. They cannot reseat

Idris Jusoh mentioned about training the
teachers and soon the parents to let the
parents do their roles. I don't know what is
the plan and what are the roles of the
parents. The moment I heard of 'parents
role' I quickly jumped to conclusion. "If
anything goes wrong, don't blame us. Blame
the parents." If any parent were to say that

say, "Make time. If we can do it, why can't

the government blamed the populace for not
exercising consumerism. People are asked to
boycott the goods, not to buy food outside.

problems is that the voters are either

China was merely for self defense. USA chose
to maneuver the economy of the Middle

But China is a Communist state. The manpower
is almost free. If she has all the resources
on her soil the built cost would only be
nominal. The real threat is not now but
years to come. The present Chinese
leaderships are more rational, cunning and
give priority to science and technology. The
United States have to break the Chinese
backbones by corrupting those high ranking
Communists. And she needs every country in
Asia and Southeast Asia as allies.
Putin has said that Russia is not afraid of
USA but China said nothing and didn't show
any hatred or her disliking towards America.
Simply because she is not ready to compete
with the mighty Americans. Friendliness
gives her time to build stealth aircrafts
and drones, improving her satellite
capabilities and slowly strengthened her sea
power. USA understands carelessness could
give China dominance in this region. There
should be zero error.
At this scenario, I would relate the missing
MH370 to this cold war.
Najib is facing a hard time because what he
needs most to be the Prime Minister at
whatever cost. The local Chinese is pressing
him. Ong Kah Teng is close to China. He
could make many decision for Najib. Would
Kah Teng tell Najib what to do or lost his
post in the next general election ? Najib
has to show that he is more incline to China
to the local Chinese and at the same time he
has to appease the Americans. After all
Malaysians security forces schooled by USA
USA need to observe the Chinese maritime
activities. Kelantan and Trengganu would be
very favorable. And she cannot allow even a
small piece of land in the middle of an
ocean left without any control. It can be
another Diego Garcia. China must not be
allowed to form a Chinese military base as
what USA is having.

After three busses
plunged and killed passengers, MH192 heading
to India with 166 people on board had to
make an emergency landing in KLIA after the
tire burst upon the take off. A school
Principal killed himself as the Korean ferry
sank. Here everyone would go scot-free after
numerous bus accidences. In the primitive
world the bus owners would have been hung.
But Hishamuddin had
called the police to investigate the
possibility of criminal sabotage on MAS.
After MH370 and before MH192 there were
reports on technical failure on the carrier
at Hong Kong airport. I am anxious to know
what is in Hishamudin's mind and what made
him suspect of such an insidious and vile
feat. He follows the right course of action.
Don't we see people
checking tires and other stuffs before take
off ? The checking steps were seen to be
thorough by several persons. Let the police
investigate and come with the right
conclusion, specific and beyond any
In the dark ages the

We hail and praise
the MH192 pilots for the safe landing. That
should not be the end. The government and
MAS should also look in the mirror to see
all the details that could lead to
causal-effects manifestations. Please don't
feel insulted when I say Rosmah factor too
has to be considered. Could anyone just tell
her to shut up her mouth ?
It is lucky that
there is no major damage that led to any
major lost. What if all the 166 passengers
die and the plane broke up into pieces ?
Isn't that about the three busses of bus
loads that had had the recent accidences
within 8 days ?
With all the chaos
and bizarre happenings, Najib is happily
talking about millions and billions and the
high income nation. The traumatic events are
too small to think about. The high cost of
living is nothing too. If there is a kind of
Presidential election here Hishamuddin will
be the Prime Minister.

MH370 - IF
What can you figure
out if the missing plane is not found ? If
it isn't under the sea bed it cannot be
found. If it is somewhere there there are
only two possibilities that could have
happened; it is put there by someone after
it had landed somewhere or it is a
deliberate dived of a suicide mission. In
both cases it has to be lured by some
There is a theory
focusing on the suicide drove by emotional
instability. Would it not come across our
mind the target would be Putrajaya or the
abode of some VIPs or MAS officers ?
The public is
pressing for the information on the cargo.
It could lead us to what really happened to
the plane. It is a drone theory. But Taliban
has to tell the world that they had shot
down a drone and was selling the hardware to
The Chinese are as
cunning as the British but forget to compute
the Chinese Embassy is under the full time
surveillance by the CIA on the ground and by
the satellites. What moved in and out were
If the drone was in
the plane it had to be the work of CIA.
Nothing more and nothing less. The plane had
to be brought down on land. If it hidden
somewhere it would never be found anywhere.
Somehow it has to be put back into the sea
to avoid suspicion. Australia, being a close
allies of the United States, was given a
task to carry the dirty job.
Remember, in the
first place the flight destination was
China. How could it ended up in Australian
water or close to the sub-continent.
Hence if MH370 is
not found anywhere in the sea, it could not
be the deliberate plan of the crews to
commit suicide. It would better to dive the
plane at the enemy's home.
The plane cargo
could be the main clue as far as we are
concern. To the Chinese they would probably
be certain if they put the cargo on the
plane to be flown back to Beijing. Najib
could have been told about the cargo but has
to stay mum. Nancy Pelosi said that the
moment any Congressmen blamed CIA for
anything they would come after 'you'. Utusan
Melau had been warned not to expound the CIA
To most Malaysians
the cold war between USA and China means
nothing, the drone means nothing too. Even
if it is brought down by CIA or Taliban,
they hope everyone is alive. The rest no
revenge and no pain.
To Najib all he
wants is the people must not blame him nor
his administration. He would be happy if the
blamed could be shifted to Anwar Ibrahim.

seen too much to dismiss it as a crazy stun.

No modern Malaysians would believe the world
is flat. You would be snubbed and laugh at
even by a tem year old boy. This is the age
when mankind has conquered space, shutting
back and forth on space vehicles and
stationed the satellites on the 4 corners of
the earth. Yet many Americans still believe
that the Earth is flat and does not rotate
on it's axis. If you care to join the Flat
Earth Society by all mean visit the webpage
and become a member.
Several documents on video were arguing and
trying to prove that the earth is flat in
term of our sighting and viewing. Even
looking at the earth through the ISS we
would not see the earth like a ball and
rotating like one. We see it as flat. Then
it is flat by our sighting. Would it not be
better for a space vehicle to stay foot at
the geo-synchronous orbit and see countries
passing bye rather than the spacecraft
flying across those countries.
What is the speed of the rotation at the
point where we are standing ? What do you
imagine if you fly an airplane 100 mph
Eastwards and 100 mph Westwards, is there
such thing as 100 mph + earth rotation and
100 mph - earth rotation ?
My religious teacher told me more than 60
years ago that flat means flat to our eyes.
The shape of the earth is designed cleverly
to create day and night. It made sense.
What if I see clearly the true shape of the

When the government
is unjust people are angry. In the show of
strength and power, backed by the judiciary
and the police force the winning will always
on the government side. As the court passed
judgment the people too made judgment. Worst
thing when thieves sue those who saw and
accused them stealing.
There were many
intolerable cases that fumed maximum anger;
Teoh Beng Huat's death, Major Zaidi court's
proceedings, the reversal of court's
judgment on Anwar and Karpal, the arrogance
of Shahrizat and her husband, and the harsh
words Karpal after his death. The arrest of
those who protest and racial slur thrown on
Ambiga and the Chinese could not be calmed
down by the money given by Najib.
Karpal's funeral has
thousands of mourners who showed their
strength and unity and anger towards those
stupid UMNO idiots with foul mouths. The
police should arrest the Perlis MP and the
Perkasa man and slapped them under seditious
These are never a
good sign for the nation's future.
What is Najib's
trying to do at his talking about millions
of ringgit and the wealth of the nation when
the price is going up day by day ? Is he
thinking MONEY talk and the BRIM would cure
all the disease and everyone will be happy ?
Didn't he learn anything from Sungai Limau
and Kajang ? And now with the demised of Mr
Karpal he should open up his eyes and mind
to sense the reality.
Anger could be shown
in more than one way. The most dangerous is
to dive an airplane down at Putrajaya as
Anwar had pointed out.
Does the government
think quieting the protestors would
evaporate all the anger and the hatred
instilled among the people ?
We have been calling
UMNO to analyze national problems in
relation to UMNO's policy and the attitudes
of it's members. They simply ignore it or
arrived at the conclusion in the simplest
way that they want to see; may it be the
problem in drugs, education, apostasy, crime
or the economy of the Malays. Instead they
defy the accusation on corruption and the
rising spate of crimes. They gave so much
focus on wealth gathering through
developmental and mega projects which robbed
away water catchment areas and our own rice
When the Malays are
at lost they looked for Mahathir to show
them light to the right path as if Malaysia
only produce one thinking Malay since the
independent. The rest are just like Ibrahim
Ali, Nordin or Noh Omar. So much so they
have to employ foreign consultants to teach
either refuse to toe the line and stay away
from politics or show their anger by silent
protest. UMNO's effort to draw them back
into it's fraternity would meet with
futility. Only the less brainy will be
deceived. Even the racial card tactic would
not work. DAP members are less wealthy than
the MCA who are around the Prime Ministers
for major projects and favors.
The real strength is
not in the strong police force or pro-BN
judiciary but it is in the sharpness of
thinking and the power of the brain. And in
the modern world brain in mightier than
guns. The mastery of knowledge and skills in
all areas of technology, arts and

Mahathir always want

for fear of the consolidation of the smart

Within the country
the suppression will drive the hard-core
anti government individuals below the
surface. Once in a blue moon they would
surface to show their anger in a remote way.
The death of Karpal

relief to UMNO. One goes a new thousands

WAR WITH OWN CITIZENS WON'T PAY
It is indeed a sad
affair that UMNO chooses to declare war on
the people using the large army of cyber
troopers, including the total control of the
Facebook, youtube and the network. You would
notice that nearing the election time you
can't escape from seeing Najib as soon as
you go into web pages like the You Tube.
Right now the Face book is under full
control of UMNO, who would manipulate

false information to derail the people.

effectiveness of UMNO, gauged from the
result of the two previous by-elections in
Peninsular Malaysia, showed total failure.
Internet censorship and manipulation, the

information is another waste of resources.
Each day the cost of

Rhetoric had not solve it. The operation on

people who are working for UMNO, yelling

voices have to pay more and more each day.
People who fell to their lies and earned

they are yearning for. They yearn to pay
more. That's all.
You should also know
that the old guards refused to give ways to
the young people whom they think will
jeopardized their future. They need the
young adults for votes, not to replace them.
Why can't they
choose the other alternative to win popular
votes ? They simply cannot shake off their
bad habits, greed, arrogant and egos. Just
try to hear Rosmah's speech; each time she
tries to defend her and her husband, she
made more people angrier at her. People can
feel her sarcastic remarks. And each time
Mahathir was trying to spin facts, he made
more fools of himself.
What is the
different between Putrajaya and people in
the main streets ? Whenever the weather is
extremely hot, the people in Putrajaya
enjoyed a cooling air. Whenever there is
water rationing imposed on the men on the
streets, Putrajaya never had water
difficulty. We, the street people, notice
garbage hunters and criminals waiting for a
prime time to strike. Putrajaya is blind to
what the people down here are sufferings.
Cyber army needs to
have smart people at worst. There was one
guy who wrote '...Kalau pelewat jadi PM tak
tahu apa nak jadi pada negara ini..' ( if a
person who likes sodomy were to become a PM
what could happen to this country). That
would not be a smart statement because such
a provocation could immediately invite an
unwelcoming and abusive response '...how
about a murderer become a PM ? '
Provocation and lies
do not help to recover the image of UMNO.
Censorships too won't be a good remedy. As
days gone by people see and feel the
changes, both good and bad. Najib is
assessing how much he can push the people
together with the money rain. He is very
confident with the power and the capability
of the police.
Anwar was too honest
to tell what the MH370 could have done if
our military is too negligence. The plane
could dive down at the buildings in
Putrajaya. Do we need to say more ?
It is foolish to
assume that the citizens are fools. How
could corruptions be eliminated when Najib
himself paid out a hard cash to the people
for the return favor. UMNO MP condemned the
people who received BRIM for not giving
their votes to the party, calling the
ingratitude citizens. We can't define
corruption as we like and different meaning
to different people. The police chief denied
the allegations of top police taking bribes.
People do not see Najib is serious in
fighting corruption but a mere eye-washed.
People also want to
see criminals be punished. Yet everyone goes
scot-free with Bank Bumiputera, PERWAJA, PKZ
and even the NFC. Whereas Teoh Beng Hock
died over an alleged matter of corruption by
The list of evils
done is beyond this brief description.
Would it be very
difficult for UMNO to be sincere and honest
to gain back the support of the great
majority of the people ? The usage of all
the resources had been exhausted. UMNO
stands because of the Sabahans and the
Sarawakians. That is too bad.
Didahulukan a reality or else people would
vomit when hearing the phrase again and
again. The 5 years given is ample to revamp
the party, to clear all the vile and malices,
the greed and avarice.
