    Our confused and sleepy Prime Minister has just changed the NAME of the Iskandar Development Region yet again. Man, is that ALL he can do????

    This is really stupid. How will changing the name affect anything? :doh: :doh:

    If names matter so much, why not call it "The Ever Prosperous & Stupendously Rich Region Where We Can Make Billions Together!". That's definitely more descriptive than the new name - Iskandar Malaysia.

    If you ask me, the new name Iskandar Malaysia is a bad choice. It's non-descriptive and it sounds bland. It even sounds like Nasi Kandar Malaysia. Maybe that's the only business that will do well in this "economic corridor". :roll:

    I think the writing is on the wall. Abdullah Badawi is on the way out. He can either leave on his own accord or he will be dragged out of office, not by the Opposition... Oh no, it will be by his own party. :haha: :haha:

    The Star has been trying to spin it the best they can for him by saying that UMNO Johor is standing by him. But the next day, UMNO Johor "clarified" that their support was contigent to his agreement for a speedy leadership transition. In other words, you better leave ASAP!

    Unfortunately, this may not be the best thing for the country. Their choice of replacement, Najib, could be worse than Abdullah Badawi. Najib is notorious for being a fencesitter who has absolutely NO conviction and NO cojones of his own. In short = Najib is a really expensive puppet. I shudder to think of a puppet like him running the country.

    Here's M. Bakri Musa's take on the issue :

    Actually, Najib is just out for the money. Since he's the Defence Minister, it's only natural he looks for opportunities in defence-related purchases. :)

    Is Anwar going to be Prime Minister? Is he READY??? :think:

    Hmm... This very disturbing. The newspapers gave a lot of coverage to the rather racist.. and definitely controversial remarks by the Kelantan Crown Prince. Even Petra hinted that he is probably one of the bad apples in a barrel of 10 thousand. :think:

    Then now we have this report by Haris Ibrahim which makes you go ... Huh???

    If that's true... then the Crown Prince really needs to step up and give the press an earful.

    This is the sad, sad state of journalism in our country. Shame! Shame! Shame! :mad:

    LOL!!! I really love Little Bird's comments on Abdullah Badawi, whom he calls affectionately Idiot. :haha: :haha:

    I heard that Najib is going to take over the Badawi's place???

    Not sure about what Najib will do... :haha:
  12. Adrian Wong

    Adrian Wong Da Boss Staff Member

    Yeah, Abdullah already said he will let Najib take over. Not that he has much of a choice. :mrgreen:

    That's the problem. Najib has always been a Yes man. He probably never had an original thought in his life. So, if he's made Prime Minister, he will probably spend the first year or so thinking about what he should do.

    Hmm.. Should I ask the judge to close one eye on the Altantuya case? Or should I first get myself a new shiny jet plane like Abdullah? Decisions... decisions. Oooh, it's so hard to decide! :wall: :wall:

    It's disconcerting to see the "official" media and suspicious NGOs making so much noise about Malay rights, losing the country to the Chinese / Indians / both, etc. If it isn't a recipe for racial segregation and polarization, I don't know what is.

    If you are one of those concerned about the "loss" of such rights, well, let Raja Petra Kamarudin put that to ease...

    Too bad the country does not appear to be ready for a non-Malay Prime Minister. Our country deserves THE BEST man/woman for the job, but right now, it looks like we are saddled with the same bunch of folks.

    TBH, I never liked Anwar too much in the past. Quite wary of the stuff he did while he was Deputy PM. Have to give him credit though for finally tying together the Opposition parties. Still, I wonder if his rhetoric is mainly that - just rhetoric. :think:

    I really, really hope that his stint as a "guest" of the government under ISA changed his opinion of what's right and just... and what's wrong and evil. I hope that Little Bird is wrong... but you never know, do you? In any case, it's worth giving a thought to what Little Bird says.

    Well, if Little Bird is right and Anwar eventually joins UMNO, then what new respect I have for him will go with the wind. Such a step will backstab everyone who supported him. It will only prove that his critics are right and that he is a leopard whose spots never change.

    Our country's name gets smeared internationally again. I just hope that this will help force the government to repeal the Internal Security Act. :X

    LOL!!! After the political tsunami which almost wiped them out, MCA has suddenly grown some balls. Suddenly, they are so outspoken, releasing multiple press releases. :haha: :haha:

    Too bad they are still too chicken to speak out against nonsense like the NEP. IMHO, why barter over 30% or 70% with 2-5% margin of preference, etc.? Government projects MUST be openly tendered with NO MARGIN of preference for anyone. :hand: Only the best person for the job should be hired to do it, no matter whether he's Malay, Chines, Indian, Iban, Kadazan, etc. Or even if he is a she. So what?

    MCA, you are still outdated. WAKE UP and grow up la. Stop being racist. :mad:

    They have YET another press statement but I'm not going to bother posting it. Just MCA crap with the really exciting title of "Government should relax press freedom to encourage the development of media"

    I find it funny that MCA has to release these press statements. It is as if they are in the opposition. LOL!

    Come on la.. Grow some balls and don't waste our time. You are in the ruling government of Malaysia. If that is really what you think should be done, DO IT. Why waste time telling us? JUST DO IT. :hand:

    Funny how the Opposition must obtain permission from the police to conduct even private events while BN-related rallies and events are allowed to proceed without "police escort" or restrictions...

    He's not the first Opposition politician to be assaulted. I don't think he will be the last.

    MCA is now so full of double-talk. They literally make NO sense at all. Check this out :

    What the heck is MCA talking about? How can one race have special rights and yet the other races have the same and equal rights? In mathematics, it would result in this nonsensical logic :

    A = 2 x B
    A = 3 x C
    but A = B = C

    What the heck does that mean???? :nuts: :nuts:

    Either we all have the same rights... or one race has special rights OVER all other races. Or maybe MCA is just high on dung smoke. :roll:
