A Samad Said’s Poem
Semakin lara kita didera bara -
kita laungkan juga pesan merdeka:
Demokrasi sebenderang mentari
sehasrat hajat semurni harga diri.
Lama resah kita – demokrasi luka;
lama duka kita – demokrasi lara.
Demokrasi yang angkuh, kita cemuhi;
suara bebas yang utuh, kita idami!
Dua abad lalu Sam Adams berseru:
(di Boston dijirus teh ke laut biru):
Tak diperlu gempita sorak yang gebu,
diperlu hanya unggun api yang syahdu.
Kini menyalalah unggun sakti itu;
kini merebaklah nyala unggun itu.

Executive committee member Lokman Noor Adam claimed he led 600 Umno Youth members at 10.30 last night, blocking the street in front of the PKR headquarters as they chanted loudly in the night.
He said the gathering of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur Umno Youth members was to “send a clear message to PKR that we are not afraid and we are ready to meet them even earlier.
PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution told The Malaysian Insider that 300 Umno Youth members, mostly on motorcycles, had travelled from as far as Shah Alam but were not stopped by police despite waving Umno flags.
“They gave a speech outside, threatening that if the Bersih rally proceeds, they will harm Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim,” he said, referring to the Bersih chief and PKR de facto leader respectively.
“They also threatened to burn down our HQ,” the Machang MP said, adding that he had lodged a police report at the police station a few doors down.

Supporters urged to don yellow in Bersih ‘warm up’
Thursday, June 23 @ 02:05:52 CDT
Supporters are asked to wear yellow on June 25 and July 2, two Saturdays before the July 9 rally.
The Coalition for Free and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) today urged its supporters to don yellow shirts on the two Saturdays leading up to the mammoth rally scheduled for July 9.
In a widely circulated text message, Bersih 2.0 asked supporters to “paint the nation yellow” in a warm up to the rally in Kuala Lumpur to hand over a petition seeking royal intervention for electoral reform.
“You need not assemble (on June 25 and July 2), but wherever you may be, put on your Bersih 2.0 t-shirt on those days,” the text message reads.
With Bersih 2.0 T-shirts currently on sale, a PKR Youth member Razali Abdul Ghaffar was hauled up by police about half an hour yesterday to give his statement for selling the t-shirts.
According to PKR Selangor information chief Shuhaimi Shafie, Razali was approached by police officers outside of a Pakatan Rakyat ceramah in Sungai Merab, Sepang.
”He told me that police confiscated two T-shirts, took him to the police station and asked him where he got the T-shirts and who is he is selling it for.
”He is just a small trader trying to make extra money. It appears that you cannot say the word Bersih any more, can’t use the word ‘yellow’, can’t wear or sell yellow T-shirts,” he said.
Shuhaimi, who is also Sri Muda assemblyperson, added that an officer from the Sepang district police station asked him this morning to give a statement on the matter.
”I will most likely give my statement tomorrow as I am not free today,” he said.When contacted, Razali said that the police took the T-shirts as “samples”.
“The officers who approached me were in plainclothes and when I asked for their authorisation card, I noticed one of them still carried his civilian identity card,” he said of the incident which happened at about 10pm last night.
The full-time trader added that the police told him that it is “wrong to sell Bersih 2.0 T-shirts and to encourage people to go to the rally on July 9.”

Najib C4 Malaysiakini ?
He also admitted meeting Saiful Bukhari Azlan a few days before he (Saiful) lodged a police report against Anwar Ibrahim, accusing the PKR leader of sodomising him.
“He came to my house because he needed my help because he was so traumatised. That was it,” Najib told reporters in Parliament.
He added that there was no conspiracy involved in the police report as being claimed by Anwar.
Saiful a coffeeboy having access to Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak home? what does that says? The Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak giving advise to a traumatised person? Have this boy heard of Befrienders? Doctors or Friends? Why the Deputy Prime Minister? Why not the Prime Minister or his fiancee? Can you a normal guy walk into DPM’s home anytime?
Confused? So am I but don’t worry the ‘Matter will be resolved … be cool’

Selangor state is said to have an internal circular to axe any previous BN approved projects above 5 million but not yet been signed by the state. It is looking at those projects which are listed as direct negotiation as it lacks transparency and may lead to waste of public funds. Will Malaysiakini investigate on this piece of news validity?

When news of BN Politicians are getting into blogging its going to be a mockery to the Blog World. The filth and utter pollution of blogs by unethical and non-GOD fearing persons that will do anything to stay in power and rape the nation of its wealth.
As Raja Petra simply put it: ‘Yes, makan babi, haram. Tapi makan duit perniagaan babi, tak haram. Makan duit rasuah dari perniagaan babi, tak haram. Makan gaji dari duit cukai perniagaan babi, tak haram. Cium ‘French kiss’ mulut GRO Cina yang makan babi, tak haram. Aiyah…..Melayu ni bangang sangatlah.’
Below is the babi related post:
Ladang ternakan babi hadiah pilihan raya
TAHNIAH kepada kerajaan Selangor kerana meluluskan cadangan untuk membina ladang ternakan babi bernilai RM100 juta di Sepang. Sesungguhnya usaha yang dilakukan oleh kerajaan baru gabungan PKR, DAP dan Pas ini adalah sebagai hadiah kepada para pengundi yang menyokong parti mereka, termasuk para pengundi beragama Islam pada pilihan raya umum lalu.
Isu babi telah lama menjadi masalah di negeri Melaka dan kerajaan negeri sentiasa bersikap bahawa ternakan babi hanyalah untuk keperluan dalam negeri dan bukannya untuk tujuan eksport. Oleh sebab itu, kerajaan Melaka sentiasa memastikan jumlah ternakan tidak melebihi had yang telah ditetapkan iaitu antara 45,000 hingga 60,000 ekor sahaja. Manakala kawasan ternakan yang dibenarkan hanyalah di kampung Paya Mengkuang, Masjid Tanah.
Bagaimanapun, ada sesetengah pihak yang bersikap degil dan terus menternak babi di luar kawasan Paya Mengkuang manakala jumlahnya sehingga mencapai ratusan ribu ekor yang menyebabkan berlakunya pencemaran air dan udara di kawasan berkenaan. Hal ini sudah pasti tidak disenangi oleh kaum Melayu yang tinggal di kawasan tersebut sejak sekian lama. Oleh sebab itu, pada tahun lalu kerajaan negeri telah mengadakan usaha untuk mengurangkan kandang babi yang tidak memenuhi syarat. Walaupun pada awalnya ia mendapat bantahan di kalangan pengusaha, namun hasil pemuafakatan yang tebal dan sebati dalam kerajaan BN, maka ia berjaya diselesaikan menjelang pilihan raya umum lalu.
Usaha kerajaan Selangor membina ladang ternakan babi di Sepang itu boleh dianggap sebagai satu lagi projek mega di negeri itu setanding dengan Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur dan Litar F1 kedua-duanya juga di Sepang. Kedua-dua projek mega tersebut berjaya memberikan keuntungan berjuta-juta ringgit kepada kerajaan Selangor sebelum ini, maka selepas ini keuntungan juga boleh diraih melalui hasil ternakan babi.
Biar apa sekalipun, babi adalah binatang yang dikategorikan sebagai najis berat (mughallazah) kepada orang Islam dan ia haram bagi orang Islam untuk menyentuh apalagi untuk memakannya. Oleh sebab itu, langkah untuk membina ladang babi itu perlu dilihat dari aspek kesannya kepada umat Islam yang tinggal di kawasan berkenaan. Keadaan ini juga dirasai oleh penduduk-penduduk di Kuala Sungai Baru di Melaka. Oleh seba itu, kerajaan Melaka telah berusaha untuk mengurangkan jumlahnya bagi mengatasi masalah itu.
Saya cukup kecewa dengan sikap para pemimpin Pas yang menganggotai mesyuarat exco kerajaan negeri Selangor yang turut bersetuju dan merelakan pembinaan ladang ternakan babi terbesar itu di negeri mereka, padahal mereka sebelum ini begitu lantang mengkritik saya berhubung isu babi di Melaka, walaupun kerajaan negeri sudah pun berusaha untuk mengurangkannya. Harus diingat bahawa sejak saya memimpin negeri ini, kita telah berjaya menutuo dua ladang ternakan babi iaitu di Jasin dan Melaka Tengah.
Tetapi apabila cadangan untuk membina ladang ternakan babi terbesar di negeri mereka, Pas tanpa segan silu turut menyokong cadangan tersebut. Tindakan para pemimpin Pas di dalam kerajaan Selangor juga telah “menghalalkan” perkara yang haram malah tanpa merasa bimbang akan pencemaran dan jangkitan penyakit yang boleh dibawa oleh babi kepada manusia, khususnya di kawasan terbabit. Ingatlah bahawa ladang yang akan dibangunkan itu adalah di kawasan majoriti didiami orang Melayu dan jika mereka benar-benar mahu membina ladang ternakan babi, buatlah di kawasan majoriti penduduknya terdiri dari kaum Cina.
Rakyat Selangor kini bergembira kerana bakal menerima hadiah pilihan raya yang begitu tinggi nilainya hasil sokongan mereka kepada parti mereka pada pilihan raya lalu.

FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY OUR PRIME MINISTER ABDULLAH BADAWI SHOULD NOT STEP DOWN.

Why one may ask? Why when everyone is trying to rid the nation off a weak leader does this blog want the opposite? A simple as this “A WEAK LEADER”. To conquer another nation 1st we need to identify if the leader of that nation is strong or weak. If he’s strong and command well your chances are 50/50. If the leader is weak and does not have full support from the locals and soilders then your winning chances are very much higher.
Pak Lah is just that. He sleeps over decisions and when things falls apart he blames others sabotaging him and lay full blame to Tun Mahathir for leaving him a shitty country to run. If there’s truth to that then why did it happen? Why anyone want to sabotage a good leader, a clean leader, a good father-in-law & an islam hadhari founder?
If the judiciary is tainted and foreigners prefer to use Singapore or else where to seek justice then why didn’t Pak Lah rectify it knowing it was Tun that damaged the reputation? If Tun was responsible for Ops Lalang and he knows it, why did Pak Lah then use ISA on 5 Indian men? Surely, they are not capable of using C4 bombs on protest gathering.
Pak Lah is a weak leader as even less than 100days we see his decisions are not inline with what ministers under him dishes out. Under him the Tourism Minister decided to sideline money due to PR states the way they did to Terengganu withholding Oil Royalties when PAS won. So the same will happen and money will go to one poor soul like the former King Zakaria of Klang.
Pak Lah should stay as PM. If he does then more UMNO/BN members will be angry and defect to PR. Pak Lah should stay as PM so many more mega corridors will emerge only to be cancelled later due to corruption, cost overruns and lack of funds. Most importantly Pak Lah should be defiant and remain as PM until next election so Pakatan Rakyat can win and form a New Ruling Party to lead a Malaysia for all.

HE WHO KNOWS SHIT TALKS SHIT….
ref: malaysiakini , malaysia-today
I am surprise that someone heading a chamber of commerce talks of handicap for open tenders based on race. On TV, this person mentioned that its grossly unfair for Malay businesses to fight with Chinese businesses over a tender as he ASSumes all Chinese businesses are filthy rich CONGLOMERATES that will TELAN all Malay businesses in the open field. Does he really care for a clean effective way for the Gov to procure services or products via Open Tendering? No period. He only cares if his race gets the job 1st. If he compares to Chinese then Indians will suffer most compared to Malays hence should the Gov divide Tenders to 50% Orang Asli & Lain-lain, 30% Indians, 20% Malays & 10% Chinese based on his skewed perception?
What utter nonsense if one were to give handicap based on race, this is not a GOLF game.
Simply put it if Gov were to give Malays 80% of the open tenders would it mean 80% Malays will profit from it? Answer is No! Because the fact is there are large Corporations owned by Malays and the have the resources and delivery power vs the small Malay business. Where that leaves the small fry as the Malay Chamber of Commerce so bluntly said. This is the core reason he gave to have handicap based on race quota. Now would he dare to raise this again within the Malay community that 90% of tenders are to be given only to small frys and the balance to large corporations? If the Gov decides to open a telecommunications tender for a zone and TM, Maxis, Digi and TeleAbu decides to bid what will be the outcome? Handicap for TeleAbu cause he’s a Malay small fry with 5 staff and 50k bank balance. Should 90% of that zone be his then? Yes? No?
I suggest all leaders and business chamber of ASSumes please read up on OPEN TENDERING or BIDDING before making a FOOL of oneself in Public.
“Open tenders”, in other words open calls for tenders, also called advertised tenders, are open to all vendors or contractors who can guarantee performance.
“Restricted tenders”, in other words restricted calls for tenders, also called invited tenders, prequalified, short-listed, or selective tenders, are only open to selected prequalified vendors or contractors. Example: ad and results.
There are 3 main procedures when tendering for European contracts that are above a certain level cost: – Open procedure – Restricted Procedure – Negotiated procedure
Each of them work in different ways.
Handicap needed for Malays, says chamber
PENANG: The Penang Malay Chamber of Commerce is not against an open tender system but is concerned about how “fairness” is defined.
President Rizal Faris Mohideen said the chamber was not against the new state government’s move for fairness and open tender, but felt some handicap should be given to Malay entrepreneurs to even the playing field.
He said this was because there was a gap among the different races in terms of wealth and control of the economy.
Rizal Faris compared the Chinese and the Malays, saying they were unevenly matched.
“We are all for competitiveness and open tender on a level playing field. In business, we have to be competitive. However, we are concerned about the definition of fairness as the playing field is not level among the Malay, Chinese and Indian communities,” he said.
Rizal Faris, however, asserted that the chamber did not want to encourage the subsidy culture.
He said the federal government had been pumping in billions of ringgit to help those marginalised over the last 50 years but noted that the Malays had yet to reach the competitive level.
“Maybe, how the money was not well spent. We have to change our approach and review how we do things to be able to create competitiveness,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters Wednesday after a courtesy call by 43 members of the chamber, the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce, the Malaysian Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Penang and the Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce and Industry Penang on Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at his office here.
Rizal Faris said this was the first “interface” with Lim and his whole line of state executive councillors, and requested a separate session for Malay entrepreneurs involving his chamber, the Penang Malay Economic and Business Council and the Penang Muslim League.
In response, Lim said certain things were beyond the state’s control and the government had to follow the state treasury’s guidelines when it came to open tenders.
“That is the advice from the State Legal Advisor. Our scope is limited,” he said, and reiterated that the open tender system was for economic growth in Penang so that everyone could share in the prosperity.
