So how was the suspense? Anyone had heart attack yet? Well it’s easy to sum up most Malaysians prefer cash for votes. A battered nation yes… Nevermind next 5 years it’s payback time for those small handouts prepare to pay up and don’t complain ok…. Happy moaning
Lets’s vote BN aka Bangla Nation! Sokong pembentukan satu negara baru dengan banglaputra baru. Sokong BN! Bangla Negara…
Dear Friends & Foes of Blogsphere,
It’s been an exciting time since I joined the SOPO bloggers SWAT (See, Write And Tag) Team. How time flies and much had been done and much more needs to be done. What is sad is for me to see certain people using bloggers for their personal/political gains. How friends that walked together have to part when they reach a junction. Each to their own directions as destined. Well, it was expected from day one and after the election we see many types of colors showing.
For our Dear Hero Y.M Raja Petra – I’m gald you’re out and hope they won’t find some crappy excuse to put you back in as its been to stressful for your loved ones and friends. I pray your efforts are worth while and not just another pawn in some power game. Be it true or false RPK already made his name in every home and is an icon for many of us. God Bless you and your family.
For Bloggers United – I thinks its bloggers un-united by now since many new blogsters joined many left as well. It’s only natural and people have to get on with their lives be it good or bad. Others will take the baton of fire and keep them lighted and keep truth leading always. Just as in any arena there’ll be equally dangerous and reckless bloggers out there that does more harm to blogsphere than good. Just hope they won’t overshadow the good ones.
So that’s all folks… signing off from Wattahack? Adios compadres
|P Pinang disaman guna papan tanda pelbagai bahasa|
|Nov 4, 08 5:35pm|
|Kira-kira 200 anggota Gabungan Graduan Melayu Muda (GGMM) mengadakan perarakan secara aman hari ini sebelum memfailkan saman di Mahkamah Tinggi Pulau Pinang terhadap kerajaan Pulau Pinang berhubung penggunaan papan tanda nama jalan dalam pelbagai bahasa di tapak warisan Georgetown. Mereka mengadakan perarakan itu dari Padang Kota Lama menuju ke perkarangan Mahkamah Tinggi yang terletak tidak jauh dari situ.
Dalam writ saman yang difailkan pada jam 2.55 petang, gabungan itu memohon mahkamah mengeluarkan perintah menghalang papan tanda itu dinaikkan.
Gabungan itu turut memohon satu deklarasi dibuat berhubung Perkara 152 Perlembagaan Persekutuan bagi mempertahankan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan, demikian menurut laporan Bernama.
Dalam penyata tuntutan, Nik Rizman yang juga anggota GGMM, menyatakan bahawa beliau telah menghantar notis tuntutan kepada kedua-dua defendan supaya membatalkan keputusan memasang papan tanda nama jalan dalam pelbagai bahasa di tapak warisan Georgetown.
Kedua-dua defendan telah mengabaikan notis yang dihantar melalui Tetuan Azam Aziz dan Rose Maria menyebabkan beliau memohon satu deklarasi dan injunksi dari mahkamah.

‘I have discussed this matter with the state governments of Penang and Selangor and they have agreed to take a united stand,” he said.
news posted by Malaysiakini.
We all know when the suing starts it never stops. It happens in US and now Malaysia seems to be getting up on par with them. Soon we have groups suing DBKL for Jawi road signs and Blind NGOs suing State Gov for not having Blind Signages on every road as well. See what I mean when the suing starts it never stops. Simply because under the art of wording and how you interpret those black & white words, anyone can find a loophole or excuse to sue anything under the sun.
So in times of economic uncertainty, certain groups rather waste public resources, time & money to cause damage to anyone they dislike and hope to make some bucks and political mileage out of it. Should some student group NGO should sue teachers or Education Dept for their crappy results? Maybe Mom’s can sue Gov Depts or Employers for not having baby care facilities and free milk? How about suing KLIA for using multiligual signages and public announcements? Sue Astro for broadcasting non-malay shows? wow… neverending man!
I know one group likely to be very happy with all these nonsense… the LAWYERS! yes! soon we will have more lawyers driving BMWs and help the economy. What a way to counter economic slowdown!
HOlly CraP !!! What’s more important than our economy? how to get our economy moving… well Datuk Bandar is willing to spend some easy $$$ just to rename Jalan Alor and many citizens got upset including the Oppositions and DAP.
Now DAP gets even by proposing to rename a few road in Ipoh. WOW! talk about electing trustworthly people to represent the common folks to look after their welfare. Such a bargain to get politicians to work so hard to change road names. This may help the economy as well … Wattahack! DAP should propose to USA and EU to change road names to boost their economy as well.
Did anyone notice whenever a new state minister gets elected we get a new parking system? Well now Selangor wants to revamp Selangor’s parking system as well. Apparently we can’t have enough parking systems and need to make newer ones every few years. And everytime its the same-o-same-o statement that the new new parking system well be more efficient and bring in more revenue than ever…. yawn!
hint*… want people to pay for parking? make more and tow them double triple quadruple parkers! its not the system its the enforcement and bad habits of Malaysians! why? cause we all think we can get away with any petty crime in Malaysia – period! even big criminals get away what more to say………
by the way I propose to rename a road to Jalan Wattahack? what say you…..
I feel Malaysians as a whole got the same symtoms as I’m feeling now. I mean Fever can drive you mad, Sorethroat can render you voiceless/speechless and looking at the Pendulum too long will make you loose sight. What does this all mean? As simple as falling sick can distract you and make you less productive. Its exactly what’s happening to me and I suppose all of us maybe?

Our bro Haris got a call .. what here’s whats said http://harismibrahim.wordpress.com/2008/10/16/stay-calm-and-stay-cunning-dont-react-for-now/
Lil Hummingbird caught up with me at the lay-by heading out of KL last night.
‘Jaya, Shar and Chee Seng are spot on’, he said.
‘Who is Jaya, Shar and Chee Seng? And correct about what?’, I asked
The comments by Jaya, Shar101 and Chee Seng reproduced below.
Banning Hindraf is a “smoke screen” to divert the nation’s attention from the ‘private sms’ and ‘public Eurocopter’!!
Only hope Hindraf’s does not fall into the ‘trap’ by responding as they ‘expect’ the reaction to be!
Need for a rational but strategic response is paramount.
Never mind the legal technicalities, bro.
It’s become obvious the authorities did not bother to heed Hindraf’s call nor did they provide a proper avenue for Hindraf to channel their grievances.
Militant UMNO needs a bogeyman.
In Hindraf, they found one or putting it another way, the UMNO-led BN government and the MSM have manipulated/reported events since Nov ‘07 to paint Hindraf as such.
Things will get worse now.
Hindraf going ‘underground’ will create opportunities for the powers that be to set up state-organised covert groups masquerading as Hindraf to spread chaos.
Unless AI and PR have better options.
We seriously need a political solution to avert a social disaster from happening. Question is – Will AI take the lead?
Chee Seng :
Is this a strategy to try and incite another May 13 or Ops Lalang?
Looks like it. Close observers of Malaysian politics have sensed a shift in the political climate since Dollah announced he decided not to seek re-election. The racism displayed by UMNO is no longer random. There seems to be more cohesion and focus in its expression.
It’s reminiscent of Ops Lalang i.e. a racially-charged scenario engineered by Mahathir who then swooped down on dissenters. Both situations also occurred when UMNO’s grip on power was under threat. Both situations cowed the nation into submission and allowed UMNO to weasel their way to a stronger grip on the nation.
It would seem that today the strategy has not changed, but tactics are a little more refined this time. Not because UMNO has become smarter, but because of their clumsy moves since March 8, they have to tread more carefully.
And since Najib, Muhyiddin and Mahathir seems to be one big happy family now, it’s pretty obvious Mahathir is calling the plays in the game.
So if we interpret everything that’s happening in our country now through the assumption that it’s all building up Ops Lallang 2 or May 13 pt 2, the strategies employed becomes obvious:
Step 1. First neutralise the Generals of change – RPK and Anwar
Step 2. Then incite the Malays to fever pitch – using Ahmad Ismail, Utusan Melayu, Khir Toyo, etc to paint everything uttered by non-Malays as anti-Malay
Step 3. Antagonise non-Malays – blatantly lie about Teresa Kok, RPK, the Sin Chew reporter, demonise HINDRAF, rip up KTK’s photo, etc, etc, etc.
This is moving the pawns into position for battle!
The next logical step would be:
Step 4. Confound the lieutenants to eliminate the second-tier leadership of the movement for change.
This can be done by crackdown or distractions. Since they have seen the rakyat’s recent reaction to crackdown, distraction is the more likely strategy employed.
Is it being implemented now? I believe so.
Plenty of issues are being thrown out into the open that divert attention away from people’s clamour for change of govt have recently surfaced – Cabinet absent from Parliament, refusal to re-table Budget 2009, fuel price decrease, RPK’s trial postponement, Utusan’s spat with Teresa Kok, banning HINDRAF, rumours of Zul joining UMNO, etc etc etc.
This will throw up plenty of fires to keep the remaining civic leaders busy. So instead of a concentrated push for changing the BN govt, the people’s energy is diverted to defending and supporting RPK, Teresa Kok and HINDRAF and trying to make heads or tails of the whole plethora of senseless issues.
These issues cannot be interpreted or reasoned out because they are designed to be senseless! So while the PR & civic leadership are thus occupied, the real strategising is going on between TDM, Najib and Muhyiddin.
Step 5: Strike decisively – Shock and Awe
Dear friends, it’s been 7 months since the election and the BN/UMNO has not shown any inclination to change or reform. In fact, we see their position hardening against dissenters. Now that the unholy trinity is finally in charge, the game will be up very soon.
We need regime change in this country if we ever hope to see real reforms. And we need it more desperately than ever with the global recession bearing down on us. (One can only assume that the PM-to-be refuses to table a new budget because when recession hits this country, we’ll be too busy worrying about our rice bowl than regime change.)
Let’s not be distracted from that goal.
How can we play our part in all this?
Do not be drawn into their evil trap! Do not get angry by their actions/words – that’s exactly what they want! Do not flame websites or blogs with our reactions to their shenanigans. Do not counter their comments.
Let’s stay focused! Our leaders in Parliament and in civic society need all our support!
