Macam Mana Prestasi sukan Malaysia nak maju???

Padang SJK(T) Taman Melawati akan dibangunkan sebagai kawasan perumahan kos rendah.

Macam mana prestasi sukan negara nak maju kalau peluang untuk melahirkan bakat sukan digantikan dengan peluang untuk mencari keuntungan?

Saya hairan macam mana padang sekolah boleh diberikan kelulusan untuk dijadikan kawasan perumahan.

Kerajaan harus meneliti masalah sukan negara daripada peringkat akar umbi.

Keadaan sukan negara sejak tahun 80-an seolah-olah air tertakung. Tiada apa-apa kemajuan. Cuba lihat negara-negara jiran…. Standard mereka dengan kita dah jauh berbeza.

Sebab apa?

Sebab kita tidak pentingkan perkara-perkara yang asas.

Padang sekolah adalah perkara/platform asas bagi melahirkan potensi sukan negara.

Malaysiakini: ‘Form the government today, reduce fuel prices tomorrow’

What a surprise!

Atleast our Mainstream media is doing something relevant like this…

But this event would be better if organised buy NGO’s…You know why, Media Prima is owned buy UMNO…

Furthermore, whoever watching it, would know how the questions is from the panels… I feel like watching a s**t program… You know, only one side arguments contain fact and logicness… Another side is bulls##ting…

Next time i hope, this kind of debates will be hosted by free bodies or NGO…

And if can, next candidate would be Mr. Samy…

Malaysiakini: ‘Repent, you shameful man’

 
Taken from Malaysiakini…

 

vox populi big thumbnail

‘The Kinabatangan MP says that it was not rude to make such a gesture (as he did) so shall I suggest to all the readers to give him the gesture when we see him?’ 
On Kinabatangan MP: Yes, I did it but…

Panap Nobi: I really do not understand the focus of the media. Here we are condemning this faraway land creature and on the other hand, we are giving him all the unnecessary focus, air time and publicity.

This publicity-seeking God-knows-what will certainly dance to the media’s publicity tune not unlike a street performance where a monkey dances to some music and the crowd throws some coins.

What do you expect from a nobody seeking cheap publicity? And here the media is giving him just what he wants.

To stop his nonsense, please ensure we do not see or hear him because we Malaysians are not amused by his cheap and tasteless stunts. If simple folks like us can see through him, I wonder why experienced editors cannot.

Sabahan: This clown is an insult not only to all parliamentarians, but to all Malaysians and especially Sabahans.

He thinks that the Parliament is a coffee shop where he can use vulgar language and gestures and crack vulgar jokes to amuse his like-minded fellow parliamentarians from the Barisan Nasional.

His behaviour is not surprising coming from a constituency which is very susceptible to vote-buying.

For the information of readers, in the whole of the Kinabatangan constituency, there is only one small township which consists of a few shops.

Most of the voters are poor natives eking out an existence by farming small plots of land or working in plantations in the area.

Telling lies is, of course, second nature to him, and he is further encouraged by our PM telling lies and not apologising for them.

I am sure when he returns to his constituency, he takes great delight in telling his people his tales from the Malaysian Parliament

Peter Ooi: Looks like the Parliament is turning into a zoo. Maybe Bung Mokhtar Radin really did not mean what is interpreted by the onlookers. I would forgive him if he did not mean ill with his obscene gesture.

But would the majority of those who see the video take it lightly especially when some of them are of school-going age? They would be rather shocked than amused this coming from a YB.

They know that these type of obscene gestures and remarks are commonly made by trishaw- pullers, fishmongers and pimps. They must be left wondering and dazed that these undesirable acts could find its way into our august hall.

In England, if a football player displayed such unsightly antics, all hell would break loose. Such stupid behaviour is never tolerated especially in full view of the public. Definitely the culprit would not get away without severe punishment.

Now that Bung Mokhtar has owned up to his act, let us see what action Pak Lah is going to take. Reprimanding him is not enough because this is not the first time he is up to this sort of objectionable behavior.

Dhammika: This MP has done the dirty sign one to many times. He has offended Malaysians and disciplinary action must be taken against him.

What will the younger generation think? His gesture is unbecoming and he is not ashamed that his family watches him doing this action. He is not fit to be an MP.

I don’t understand how his constituents elected him. Being deputy chairperson of the Backbenchers Club, he should be sacked for bringing shame onto the organisation.

He is behaviour can be likened to those in the secret societies. If he joins them, he will be a leader for them. This lewd sign is disgusting and against our culture.

Kiv T: Surely a lot of Malaysians have made this gesture before when we were a very young with very little education.

These are the things people with very little education do but to do this in Parliament during a live telecast is a true disgrace to Malaysia and the people of Malaysia.

I was watching the proceedings and the moment I saw what he did, I was so shocked. I sincerely feel MPs like Bung Mokhtar Radin are not qualified to be they are is today.

I don’t know what education level he has but with his behaviour in Parliament one can conclude that he is not well-educated.

He says that it was not rude to make such a gesture so shall I suggest to all the readers to give him the gesture when we see him?

Again, we will not do such a thing because we have more class and are much better-educated than MP Bung Mokhtar Radin.

I have been watching the live telecasts almost everyday and MP Bung Mokhtar Radin is one of those BN MP that are there not to get things done but to pick on the opposition. What a waste of time and rakyat‘s money!

Meng: The Kinabatangan MP has a peculiar habit. He beats the back of his own hand when he gets angry.

There’s a better way to show your frustration and many Malaysians would rather you slap yourself hard on the cheek.

That way there is no mistaking a rude gesture that is more becoming of a labourer or an uneducated person.

Once again, you can talk yourself out of this, but we all know what you meant and you are foolish to deny it.

You are a good reminder why the BN is yesterday’s news and why we should continue the punishment beyond the March 8 polls.

A Concerned Citizen: Bung Mokhtar, what you did in Parliament is obscene. What you did after that in denying what you did is even more obscene.

In the first instance you showed yourself to be uncouth. In the second you showed yourself to be dishonest.

Repent, you shameful man.

Malaysiakini:’There was never any subsidy’

http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/84417

“Al Tugauw: There was never any subsidy. The BN government is and has been cheating the people. If we follow their twisted logic, then everything the government spends on is a ‘subsidy’ of one sort or another. It is the Malaysian people that have been subsidising shoddy government, mismanagement and extravagance, even sheer waste and corruption, the brunt of which is being borne by the hardcore poor of the oil-producing states, Sarawak, Sabah and Terengganu, who should rightfully have a far better claim for ‘subsidies’.

Furthermore, the Ministers’ 10% cut is actually nothing. Their pay plus allowance is about 40k. But they don have to spend it for any basic necessities.

Their phone bills, electric bills all paid for. Oil and toll all paid for. Whenever they go out to makan with anyone also, they submit the receipt and claim back, so why even bother giving them the entertainment allowance?
Their overseas trip also, all paid for plus they are given pocket money to spend! WHy do they even need the holidays? Not that they do much work also… its the ‘ppl’ who are working!!!
 
“BH:Despite all the hue and cry from the public, these corporations continued to increase prices and later at the end of the year, proudly announced their annual achievements of certain high figures. Doesn’t this sound like robbing from the poor to feed the rich? With all these crazy increases, we should be asking the government to reserve their savings from the subsidies to pay off the toll concessionaires so that all roads can be toll-free. And return Petronas to the rightful owner – the citizens of Malaysia.

“Johnny Koay:If the BN government really cares for the rakyat they should instruct TNB to help. The BN government has bailed out MAS and other non-performing government companies. When they are in a fix, they ask the rakyat to ‘sabar’ or change our lifestyle.

Finally, here is one radical suggestion…

“Thanneer: Target one of the petrol providers and boycott their stations completely. Once their revenues go down, theoretically they can either close shop or reduce prices. If they choose to close shop, we can continue this with another company. This can be executed as long as we get mass cooperation from motorists.

Ministers’ entertainment: a 75% cut more like it

Letter from Malaysiakini
Yow Lop Siaw | Jun 12, 08 4:15pm

 

The initiative to cut the entertainment allowances of ministers by 10% and other costs such as restricting paid overseas travel by families of ministers and so on is just an eyewash and a way of pleasing the people. The 10% cut is peanuts as most of the time, it is the ministers who are entertained by those who wish to seek favours or be in their good books.

A 75% cut would be more appropriate and realistic. After all, ministers also derive income from being elected representatives and this 75% cut should not be painful, especially if they truly believe and profess to be our wakil rakyat – they should feel for the rakyat and be one of us.

After all, this cut is only for this current difficult period and once conditions recover, this cut could be lifted. In fact, a true wakil rakyat should be one who would step forward voluntarily and seek such cuts.

Another area that should be looked at and steps be taken to curb this wanton practice is the habit of organising training and staff development programmes in posh hotels and resorts.

I remember a government servant friend telling me that there is a huge allocation for such purposes and they find ways and means of utilising this allocation – hence such wasteful practices.

Housing big groups of participants in hotels with meals and accommodation provided over a few days costs tens of thousands of ringgit and if you factor that by the number of such courses, hundreds of thousands of ringgit are spent, and that’s just for one department.

The entertainment allowance cut should be extended to all senior government servants, not just ministers. At the moment, an entertainment allowance is given to all senior government servants across the board, with only the quantum varying.

There are many categories of senior government servants who do not need to entertain at all. Such a move would not be popular but if we consider the recent hefty pay hike. A temporary cut in entertainment allowance would not really hurt.

Scale down, postpone or cancel projects, especially mega ones in order to have enough money to face these difficult times. The government keeps telling us to adjust or change our lifestyle in the face of rising costs.

We are doing this and we have been doing that so don’t just tell us – the government must also adjust to accommodate and weather the difficult times. Food shortages, especially rice, will push prices up. Transport costs will escalate, as a result of rising petroleum price.

In short, almost everything will fall short, including our tempers when we think of the government’s wasteful practices. It is imperative that the government sit down and seriously go through all major projects planned and do a complete revamp.

Providing food and a roof for the rakyat will be a serious problem if we continue to embark on these mega-projects.

We are also aware that the NS programme costs millions. The government should look into various costs involved, such as costs of food supply, uniform supply, transport charges and other costs – are prices quoted fair and just?

Word has it that each set of uniform costs a few times more than the Singapore regular army’s! If that is the case, it is really absurd. And if this is indeed true, what about other costs – are they competitive?

In conclusion, have your ministers go through their operating costs and come up with viable suggestions to cut costs. If they do that, then they can claim to be our true wakil rakyat.

PUTERA MIC award for blogging excellence

pakguard84

 

When Malaysian were hit by fuel price Tsunami, MIC come up with some sort of blogging award…

According to Malaysiakini report, Putera MIC wants to expose more Indian youths to blogging and encourage them to be fair in their postings and content.

As far as i concern, the posting and contents will be fair if MIC fair enough in their action. Nobody will criticise MIC if everything fine. The problem is there is alot of grass roots problems that MIC have to solve. Which they failed to do until now…

Furthermore, as reported in Malaysiakini, the latest move by Putera MIC is seen as an attempt to regain lost ground, especially after losing support from the Indian youths.

Once again im telling you guys, Indian youth wont support you just because you giving award to them or encourage them to blogging… Do something to the mass society. Dont waste peoples money by organizing such events, because as a member of  community i feel that you people wasting the money. Which can be used to aid our indian brothers and sisters(those who really need money).

We Malaysian Indian Youth start blogging not because someone told us to do so. We learn to do so when we realise that my community needs me. We not hoping to get awards for what we are doing now. We blogging as volunteer and standing together with public.

Yes we are critical towards MIC, but do MIC take it into account? If really MIC going to help INdian Community, then it should consider the views and opinion because im part of the Indian Community also.

Anyhow, those who(of course blog which content pro MIC writtings) will get the award, my best wishes… But dont forget your responsibility to your community…

A political party always full of agendas… but my pity Indian Community demmed in full of sadness… Lets change it… Blogging to bright the community, not for the award!!!

Must questions for our dearest leaders

pakguard84

 

Where does publics tax money go? Because I see the poor getting poorer… Do public need to pay for others inaptitude and greed?

 

Where will the government’s fuel subsidy go to? More useless programs and events?

 

Will value of ringgit in the international currency exchange increase?

 

Can government take over all the tolled highways and scrap all toll booths and make the highway concession agreement public?

 

Can they use smaller CC vehicles?

 

When our public transport systems will be improved?

 

Don’t you feel guilty???
