Pinggan mangkok yang sumbing dan retak seribu itu tidak boleh dipakai lagi, dibuang sahaja

Saya telah memberikan pandangan kepada rakan-takan fb semalam tentang budaya dan kepercayaan yang kita selalunya tidak akan menggunakan lagi pinggan, cawan atau piring yang telah sumbing dan retak seribu. Jika kita dihidangkan makanan dengan pinggan mangkok yang sumbing ia menunjukan betapa kurang sopannya atau dhaifnya kita tentang adab dan budaya bukan sahaja kepada kaum Melayu malahan kepada banyak bangsa dan kaum di dunia ini.

Setengahnya percaya bahawa jika kita menggunakan pinggan mangkok yang sumbing dan retak seribu itu ia akan membawa sial dan berbagai-bagai lagi yang tidak baik untuk kita semua.

Kesemua yang memberi respons itu bersetuju dengan pandangan saya itu, malahan ada yang memberikan bukti keyakinan mereka dengan mengeluarkan hadith Muhammad saw yang mencegah kita menggunakan pinggan mangkok yang sumbing itu. Kata mereka yang sumbing dan retak seribu itu patut di buang sahaja dan jangan digunakan lagi.

Yang lebih menarik lagi ada yang memberikan pandangan apa sahaja yang sudah retak dan sumbing itu kita patut jauhi nya termasuk lah parti-parti politik yang sedang menghadapi keretakan dan sumbing itu.

Keseluruhan komen dari peminat politik yang memberikan respons itu rata-rata berpendapat yang Umno sudah retak dan menunggu pecah sahaja. Malahan sumbingnya Umno itu sudah lama kelihatan dan semakin jelas hari demi hari. Terlalu banyak puak dan kem dalam parti itu sekarang ini. Di sana sini ada retak dan sumbingnya.

Sesungguhnya Najib akan menghadapi masalah keretakan dalam parti pimpinannya hasil dari rasa tidak yakin terhadap kepimpinan Najib dikalangan pemimpin-pemimpin setiap peringkat dalam parti itu sekarang. Semuanya sedang menjolok Najib agar jatuh dan mereka akan berebut untuk mendapatkan buah yang dijolok mereka itu. Ramai yang tidak tahu yang menjolok itu tidak akan dapat menyambut buahnya.

Akhirnya ramailah yang berpendapat yang parti itu tidak akan dipakai lagi oleh orang yang memahami hakikat yang retak seribu dan yang sumbing itu seharusnya dibuang dan jangan di dekati lagi.

Yang sumbing itu akan pecah dan yang retak itu akan jatuh berderai. Telah diyakini oleh banyak pihak termasuk yang berada dalam Umno itu sendiri yang parti itu sudah tidak boleh di harapkan lagi. 

Benarlah perbilangan yang berbunyi 'the good is for the good and the bad is for the bad' Tidak semema-mena PAS pulak yang terikut-ikut Umno dan parti itu sudah mula jelas sumbing dan retak seribu nya. Bersungguh benar PAS ini menempah mautnya.

There is no truth but fallacies from our leaders

Najib just need a tad of common sense to feel and realize that he is already a nuisance, an irritant and uninterruptedly becomes the enemy of the people and the land. To all sensible and civil minded Malaysians he is looked upon as a serious nuisance that will ultimately fails the state to an unadulterated scale. He is not just reducing himself to infuriation of the people but he brings down the image and appearance of the entire nation to the eyes of the world.

We are described and labeled with numerous kinds of insulting ‘superlatives’ both by the world community and civil  minded Malaysians that were hard to swallow by any race with a bit of pride and self-importance. Our leaders were totally domineered by devilish leaders who were oblivious of sacrifices for the people they lead to the extent that we conclusively believing that the devils are in full control of the land. There is no more saneness in the government administration. Everything is intertwined to each other, corruptions, abuse of power; thieving, looting, plundering, racial and religious misapplications so on and so forth are all tallying to our actual situation in the country.

Now we are stuck with distressing issues of 1MDB, SRC, FELDA so on and so forth. These were oversize issues that really becoming the pains of our ass but these issues are just the compounding to the already painful issues for decades to Malaysians that we have elapsed from our memories.

Since mid-eighties Malaysia have been going through colossal losses through government misadventures and misfortunes by the tens of billions of ringgit plus the unashamedly malpractices through massive systematic corruptions via big direct negotiations on both necessary and unnecessary crony motivated projects for umpteen of years. Now that culture has progressively turned to culture of lootings and thieving through 1MDB and all other used-to-be cash flush agencies. These agencies that used to be free from financial problems are now almost dried up by the milking of their resources without shame by the board members and their senior staffs and operators.

All the rhetoric and the lofty talks to make this country a truly high income nation by the actors and political performers are wide-ranging fakes and counterfeits. The nauseating statements issued by leaders like Najib and the rest of the Cabinet members were of no importance and do not deserve any attention.

PM Najib himself is unable to erase the image of a playful and careless leader who is not resourceful enough to weather through the global economic downturn to enhance the nation’s revenue as he only see the ordinary public as the source of revenue for the country led by the boastful and the injurious leaders of the day. He was the PM who withdrew all the subsidies the people had enjoyed before his premiership. We had the petrol subsidies withdrawn completely and at the same time forced the people to accept and consent the introduction of GST, the immediate executioner to the livelihood of ordinary Malaysian as a whole.  

Now let us deliberate the tough position that the ordinary Malaysians are facing in a very simple and humble manner with simple words that is real and practical state.

Firstly the group that suffers the most is the middle-class. They are not reachable to the government assistance which the lower income group themselves are having great and huge trepidations to the policy shout about by the leaders of the day. The lower income group themselves are facing huge glitches in their lives with high and expensive basic goods and services for basic living in this country which they used to joyously experience before the current crop of leaders rule this nation.

Parents have to continuously assist their working children for they do not have enough disposal income even to own simple and cheap houses for them to live. Fresh graduates who earns less than RM 3000 do not have enough even to keep their lives reasonably afloat as everything they need are all expensive and not within their reach.

Hence we are not just apprehensive about our future generations but we have a great fearfulness about our own current generation. Right now Malaysians are in anguish to meet up the basic needs and necessities with the extended family responsibilities via the responsible towards our adult children and their siblings.

Can one imagine how the newlywed couple with insufficient income compounding with one whose able bodied parents are dead and no more living for them to lean their mind bogging life problems? How are these young generations going to progress with this kind of situation that engulfs our entire nation?  

There are now hundreds of thousands of young working group losing their jobs as their employers could not sustain their progress with the serious economic problems they face. Companies and conglomerates are bleeding economically that they have to terminate jobs in thousands each month countrywide.  The business entities are just unable to main the number of staffs they used to employ. There have been massive losses of their businesses with millions of ringgit to be paid to the government in the name of GST and what not.

The consequences far reaching to the young generation and that is part of the reasons why this group is suffering and interruptedly facing bankruptcy proceedings everywhere in the country.

The rhetoric by leaders that the economic policy is on the right track and we are going to unquestionable successes in achieving the higher income nation by 2020 truly irritates and exasperates the younger generations and the ordinary Malaysians on the whole.  

They take the rhetoric of these leaders are all fakes and misjudgments. Those words from their leaders are all impregnated by fallacies, falsehoods and canards.

Najib and the whole Cabinet should resign instantaneously. In fact they should have resigned long months ago.

Soon we'll be in Zimbabwe with different name if we don't change

We can witness noticeable and strong migrations of Umno members to Bersatu in most constituencies in Peninsula Malaysia and unmistakable erosion of Umno support in Sabah, the party’s traditional stronghold since the party’s presence there in October 1990. Hence Sabah will cease to be Umno’s fixed deposit in short due. In actual fact Sabahan do not want Umno to exist in the state any longer and their flavor is now for local parties in control of the state government.

I don’t know for sure whether the migrations of Umno members to Bersatu and other parties can break Umno, but the situation is much worse than it was in the last General Election. In the last GE Umno and its component in the peninsula performed the worst when the coalition won just 133 seats out of which Umno won 89 seats which now have reduced to only 80 seats with the sacking of some of its MPs and resignation of few others who crossed the floor for the opposition bench.

In the coming GE, I am more inclined to believe the findings of some serious political analysts that Umno will maintain only 50 seats while the rest of the BN component in the peninsula will be wiped out clean.

With a bit more workable and doable efforts, Johor will be another state that will cease to be the party’s fixed deposit. Johor and Sabah in recent few GEs was the strong bastion for Umno that keep the party in a marginal control in the Federal Legislature. For Umno to claim Sabah and Johor still as its fixed deposit is a severe error as Umno will be humiliated in Sabah while in Johor the party’s support is assuredly waning. Do remember Sabah and Johor was the savior for Umno and BN in the last few elections and with the current glitches in Sabah and the dwindling support for Umno in Johor the chances of Umno to be in the opposition bench after the GE is seriously promising. 

There are still reasonable numbers who are still in the party at all levels but most of them are merely dormant members and splinters of supporters who stay in the party to see who will lead the party in the forthcoming General Election before they eventually decide which side to support. There are also some splinters of supporters who write in the social media like fb who we should not pay any devotion to these political novices. These inactive Umno members are in reality very vulnerable and tendency for them to sway and turn coats in the ballot boxes in the coming GE is conceivably expected.

At ground level Umno is already trampled psychologically and not many of its members don't even have the courage to wear their party’s t-shirts (the blue Umno t-shirt) and other merchandises in the open to evade being cackled at. The party’s traditional activists are either working against the party in favor for the oppositions or stay as dormant observers because they have lost their confidence with their contemptible party leadership. Umno leaders at the grassroots are in defensive genre and more often than not they are feeling inferior to the relatively more calculable oppositions.

They are in reality not tallying up with the replicated strength of the party. Umno is just left with the few elites who are having the exuberant life with the personal doles they gain being appointed to positions with high social standing together with few noisy cheer-leaders who are oblivious of what Umno is all about but audaciously active in court-jesting themselves wanting to be paid attention at in the social media in particular the fb and some by highly paid bloggers.

However there are some who are still in denial that Umno is fast dwindling in support from the people of all races. Umno itself gives everyone reason not to be supported any longer. Umno has failed to prop up leaders who are incorruptible with high magnanimity and truthfulness. Umno has cultured corruption to an inconceivable level and power has been abused brazenly without hindrances.

Any quarter that is critical towards the government will be ostracized and detested from their positions. Some others were victimized of their livelihood and this is nothing more and nothing less similar to the manner a communist managing its country and people. Every power is centered in the hands of a PM ever since the unabashed raping and disbanding of separation of powers in this faked and distorted democratic nation.

The consequences of scattering the separation of power in managing the country were too injurious to the country and we are now going through perdition beyond any civil mind can compute. What is left in Umno-led Cabinet is just their inane ego and the party is consistently in denial that is in grave danger of infinite loss of power.  

However the only setback that the Bersatu led opposition is that they don’t have serious and viable leader to alternate Najib. The opposition has the similar problem with the current Cabinet lineup. To choose among the present Cabinet lineup to replace Najib is a real effort. For Zahid Hamidi or Hishamuddin to replace Najib is another grave error while choosing one of the main leaders among the Bersatu-led opposition is equally another threatening initiative.

Malaysians on the whole have yet to come out with a serious solution to their soul-searching exercise. The fact remains that we have to restart, reshape and to reorganize this nation anew with new political ambience if we are still in need of a proper and fitting government to govern us and our generation.

Right now we are in the fast lane to be in Zimbabwe with different name. It's frightening!

Najib can be well remembered if he owns up his mischiefs, Mahathir has done it

Current leaders of UMNO are interminably schmoozing about the past history of successes of the party and they expediently claim as theirs. The successes of the current leaders especially those in the ruling party elites and the government are only to contribute pains and miseries for the people. They are all out to destroy past efficacious records of our fore fathers who built up this nation through sweat and tears.

Since the eighties all the solid democratic institutions were invaded by unsecured and spiritually weak leaders who only think about the security of the positions and power they joyously in love with. Usually these inferiority complex leaders will never want to see good and budding leaders to be around in the hierarchy of power and instead choose to bring together contemptible sycophants to amuse and to keep his or her position without disturbances and feelings of insecurity. 

The unsecured leaders will never want to co-exist and accept the concept of separations of power as the inferior feelings in him will see the separation of power may bring him down when he commits offenses and encroachments on the system of government. He would take pre-emptive actions by dismantling the system and takes all powers centrally into his own bare hands.

He can now have all the power with him without fear of being disturbed by the check and balance system that is practiced in all advanced and matured democratic nations. We were deeply thrown into this environment when the Judiciary was raped by the executive in 1988 and the Judiciary has been on trial ever since and has never recovered till today. The dismantling of separations of power was the root cause for the current environment and to retrieve and to go back to the true democratic system will be a massive enterprise for us Malaysians. 

Dr Mahathir maybe recognized leader who could manage his own system of democracy without the sound democratic institution. He himself was a system. BUT that system can’t guarantee works well by others who lead the party and the government after him. That was the reason why a nation must have a standard manner of managing a country and that is practiced in all advanced and matured countries. AND part of the system is to respect the separation of power.

Now Najib is taking the dismantling of the separation of power expediently for his advantage as Mahathir had inherited the system where the PM controls everything. The PM has the power and influence to put anyone in prison as he wishes and he can free anyone out of prison. The power that is vested on Malaysian PM is much more than the power of US President. That is the reason why Najib Rule-by-Law instead of following Rules of Law. Najib displaced the investigation team on 1MDB by sacking the AG to cover-up the heinous 1MDB scandal. In actuality Najib like Mahathir used to be, has the power of  an emperor.

Mahathir didn’t abuse the power he had absolutely; Najib is taking every law in his own hands. Najib is the judge, as well as the AG. The new minted AG whether we like it or not is perceived to be a rubber stamp of the 'cash' crazy Najib. Let us not talk about the rest as every thinking Malaysian can add two and two together regarding Najib's tales of power abuses and his corruptions related issues.

Umno and Najib are having day dreams as they are in denial that Umno will be dumped. The issue is Umno is keeping irresponsible leaders to lead them and therefore Umno has to be done with in order to stop the menace done by the party towards the country. Compounded to their political madness the country is now facing inconceivable economic and social complications beyond restoration for as long as the current line of leaders are still dawdling shamelessly in Putrajaya.

We are facing serious economic problems as our domestic demands are too small to weather the now stunted growth as well as unsustainable household debts across the board. The plunging of exports with the fall of tourist arrivals together with the plunging of government revenue and ringgit depreciation against the green belts are very severe. Without a respectable alternative leadership to the eyes of the economic community internationally the country will be on the perpetual pain and aches.

Umno has only one choice in order to remain relevant; that is to have the entire leadership line to go off. The ever hungry leaders must have some common sense to admit that Umno is already at the edge of high and slippery cliff. Once it falls it will fall heinously and the party will be history. If Najib wants to be remembered as a responsible leader to his party, quitting from every position is the only sensible thing to do. OR else he will be remembered as the person who was responsible for the dreadful demise of his party and that will be boldly transcribed in many history books read by our coming generation.

As I have said in my last posting Najib must find some kind of face-saving device and leave after which to live in repentance ever after. Let’s find the most decent leader to start the nation anew as this blog has regularly said since years ago. Najib should come to term those human beings, more so for those believing in spiritual life elements would want to live in solace at the end of one’s life. Leave the nation to someone who can bring everything on the drawing board and restart the nation anew for fresh ambience and environments.

If Najib owns up all the misdeeds that he has committed to the country he has the right to have that soothing life in the end. If he is unable to show could cause for the country he still have the chance to be remembered as great leader by sacrificing all positions that he is currently in love with. He must think deeply for the sake of the country and more noble for his mother and family and his own self. He must be strong in his inside self to take up the challenge that he fails to do till to-date.

It’s tough enterprise for Najib to own up his failures but if he succeeds in taking up that challenge and find the face saving device and retires he will be greatly remembered by all Malaysians and our generations.

Just be like Doc Mahathir, he admits and owns up his failures and now he is all out to do all the repair jobs on all his mistakes to the country, the government and its politics. He will be great again if he succeeds, which I think he will.
