KISAH POKOK BESAR DENGAN POKOK RENEK
Di sebuah padang yang luas, ada sepohon kayu yang sangat besar dan tinggi. Di sebelahnya pula ada sebatang pokok renek yang rendah dan rendang. Pada suatu hari angin bertiup dengan kencangnya. Pokok besar yang tegap itu tidak bergoyang sedangkan pokok renek itu meliuk ke kiri dan ke kanan.
“Mengapa kamu tidak boleh berdiri tegap seperti aku?” Tanya pokok besar dengan sombongnya.
Pokok renek pun menjawab, “Aku tidak sekuat kamu. Aku pokok yang lemah.” Pokok itu terus melentok ke kiri dan ke kanan apabila dituip angin.
“Ya, kamu sangat lemah. Aku lebih kuat dan berkuasa daripada kamu,” kata pokok besar dengan angkuh. Tidak lama kemudian, angin ribut pun bertiup dan mencabut akar pokok yang besar itu. Ia pun tumbang, tetapi pokok renek tetap meliuk ke kiri dan ke kanan. Ia tidak tumbang.
Cerita ini bermoral: Sifat sombong dan angkuh tidak boleh menyelamatkan diri sendiri.
Note: We teach our children morals which we forgotten. The story above applies to all adults especially those holding public positions and are leaders for our country. Lest we forget again, we are only as strong as the ground holding us and must be flexible to adapt to challenges.

Sultan Sharafuddin: ‘No one race could have brought Malaysia to what it is today’
The Sultan said he wanted Malaysians to understand that the country’s independence was achieved through the unity of all the major races.
The Sultan of Selangor, HRH Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah came out strong on issues that matters most to Malaysians on the near completion of 50 years of Independence – corruption, crime, race, religion, education and the brain drain, the environment and of course politics.
Excerpts from an interview:
On Race: His Royal Highness pointedly declared, “No one race could have brought Malaysia to what it is today” Clearly he was pushing forward a Bangsa Malaysia initiative. He insisted that multi-racialism must be nurtured in school and that everyone has a right to feel as Malaysians.
On Religion: The Sultan of Selangor urged his subjects to respect other religions, the way others respect Islam, the State Religion. “I want Muslims to respect the religions practised by other Malaysians.” He also expected non-Muslims to reciprocate similar respect towards Islam. He earlier expressed his unhappiness on politicians, of late, harping on race and religion. (more…)
‘Amend laws to enable action against bloggers’
PETALING JAYA: Laws should be amended so that action can be taken against webmasters and bloggers who post lies and other statements which could have serious repercussions.
Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the Internet was good in the sense that a person had the freedom to think and decide, but there were those who posted lies and tried to incite feelings of ill will among the different communities in Malaysia.

Who comes after ‘A’?
One can view that in a positive note or a negative note. Just as many would view Malaysiakini and Malaysia-Today as good for the nation… others would label them as mouthpieces for the Jews.
Now we were all lead to think of the outcome of R.A.H.M.A.N as the superstitious prediction for our next Prime Minister. If its such a case why would anyone care to vote then? Now it may seem we voted the same R.A.H.M.A.N in real life or was it planned to be? How much coincidence is that? If I were to tell you your next lottery number begans with ‘N’ would you care to buy A-Z minus ‘N’? If past records claims I was right all along.
Nation’s successes and achievements inherited cannot be sustained forever if …
The following is the full text of Raja Muda Perak Darul Ridzuan Raja Nazrin Shah’s speech at the launch of a book on former Deputy Prime Minister Tun Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman titled “Not because of position: Tun Dr Ismail and his time” in Universiti Malaya today (Aug 3, 2007):

“The electorates should initiate monitoring systems to keep tabs on the performance of their elected representatives, said Transparency International-Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Ramon Navaratnam.”
“He said the monitoring system can scrutinise all candidates put up by political parties for the coming general elections.”
It is appropriate to name Transparency, Accountability & Responsibility as the TAR policies in honour of our Father of Independence - Tunku Abdul Rahman. It is our responsibility to lead on the visions of our founding forefathers and reject those intended to hijack our beloved country with their corruptions.
The 1st step to a better nation is the monitoring of our elected politicians. They are there for a reason and that reason is to serve the people in otherwords the Nation. Malaysians feels the country heading backwards because of the unqualified leaders they put into the public office. In return these so called leaders then offer positions to even less qualified persons or relatives in states and disticts levels. As commented by Tun Mahathir ‘send signal to the rotten goverment’, we are actually the ones that have the Power to rule this country. Therefore send out the signal to your neighbours, friends, family and even business associates to get themselves to Vote for the sake of our 50 year old Nation.
