Double standards all over again .... and again

PKR’s Chua Tian Chang was charged with sedition today for allegedly linking Umno to the on-going Sulu intrusion into Sabah.

Two surprises here.

One, that the Sedition Act is being used despite Putrajaya saying that the law will be repealed.
Two, allegedly offensive statements to burn Malay-language bibles by Datuk Ibrahim Ali and that against Hindus by academic Datuk Dr Ridhuan Tee have yet to see the police working as hard as they have with the Batu MP.

What does that say about double standards?

And what does that say about the priority of the powers-that-be in taking action against those who criticise the government rather than those who wound the feelings of fellow Malaysians?
Aren’t all of us supposed to be equal before the law? Is there a law for opposition MPs and one for those friendly with the government of the day?

Every Malaysian expects the police and the prosecutors to be above politics. To act without fear or favour. To investigate every case thoroughly and bring to court those who they believe have committed an offence.

In this case, the police and prosecutors have done a swift job with Tian Chua, taking him to court even as the Sulu incursion continues. Malaysians can only leave it to the wisdom of the judiciary to decide whether Tian Chua has committed sedition.

But we are in the dark over action taken against the Perkasa president and the lecturer in the National Defence University. How is it that their cases are still being investigated and no action taken?
Even if there is no case to answer, shouldn’t the people be told? At least then, they know the police are doing their job.

Justice must not only be done but must be seen to be done. The swift action against Tian Chua is glaring when compared to the snail’s pace in investigating both Ibrahim and Tee.
And it lends credence to Tian Chua’s assertion that this is all political and nothing to do with what is right or wrong.

My take on this issue is this.  Since when has it become seditious to say anything adverse about UMNO which is nothing more than just a political party?  I thought sedition lies in the fact that a citizen shows disrespect or disloyalty to the King [or Sultan] like those UMNO members who called a certain sultan  ' 'natang' (animal) OR who puts the nation security in jeapordy like granting citizenships to the illegal immigrants in a covert manner, a project closely linked to one former prime minister who has the tendency to suffer from eclipse of memory.

Penang attacked by 'zombies'

You are doing your weekend shopping at a mall, enjoying the various wares on display as well as the company of the easy-going crowd.  Some are having a date in a coffee house.  Others treat it as a family outing with their children in tow, but many are window shopping for bargain.

Suddenly a scream rang out and you notice a group of people just walked into the shopping at a fast pace with their hands out stretched, trying to reach for their victims.

Everybody run helter skelter as fast as they can trying to escpe from this strange group of people who seem to be moving mindlessly in one direction with incoherent sounds.

You run as fast as you can and suddenly you hear a voice calling out to you, "Masuk sini, masuk sini!!"  It is a security guard urging you to quickly enter the departmental store, and as soon you have entered, he pulls the glass doors shut with great haste and locks them.

In a matter of seconds, this group of mindless people had reached the glass doors and are pounding away trying to get in.  You can almost hear the locks to the doors rattling away as they keep on pounding the door endlessly.

Is this a scene from one of the zombie films?  No it was a scene in Penang, Komtar to be precise.  Watch the video and you will know what I mean.

We must change the government so that we can rid ourselves of such zombie incubator that is the BTN, before they produce more of such 'living dead' to threaten our very existence.

This envelope sure beats Rosmah's Birkin bags anytime

After seeing a picture of PAS Murshidul Am Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat using a mere envelope as his money pouch, a PAS member decided to present him with a proper wallet to keep his money.

Last night, a wallet specially made for Nik Aziz by the anonymous party activist was presented by PAS information chief Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man and Shura Council secretary Nik Zawawi Mohd Salleh, before the council's meeting.

The wallet is hand-made, green in colour and bears the PAS logo.
Nik Aziz recalled that he had only bought two wallets in his lifetime: once before furthering his studies abroad and another upon his return.

The picture of Nik Aziz receiving the wallet went viral shortly after it was uploaded on Facebook, with some 108,000 views within four hours.

Monday Humour


I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mom, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!'

On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.'

A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.'

A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?'

5) POLICE # 1

While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop? Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report. My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'

6) POLICE # 2

It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station.. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked.
'It sure is,' I replied.
Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?'

While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I
braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'
A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.'
'And why not, darling?'
'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'

While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased.
The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said: 'Glory be unto the Faaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he goooes.' (I want this line used at my funeral!)

A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!'
A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.
'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out.
'What have you got there, dear?'
With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam 's underwear!'
