Politicians and leaders

I wonder...

Recently, there was a suggestion to register all bloggers, like what is being done for prepaid mobile phone users. As it is, we can't even get our voters' list right (so many claims of phantom voters) and we want to try registering bloggers?

Not all politicians are good leaders (h3ck, some are more like Yesman than anything else). In Malaysia, some of them come off to me as gangsters rather than leaders (I mean no offence and insult to the gangsters).

If these politicians were also leaders, we would be followers who:
- build houses without approval
- avoid paying assessments
- are one-eyed (having to close one eye all the time to so many issues)
- break the law and claim the law we broke is a 'minor' one
- does not know how to be humble and instead, show arrogance and issue 'subtle' threats

A few months ago, when a former Prime Minister was actively criticizing the present leadership, one minister actually volunteered to be a 'pendekar' (Malay for warrior) and challenged the former Prime Minister to quit the party so they could have a 'fight'. That is so rash and I can see why we have road bullies now...

Road Bully overtakes a car and slightly scrapes the car he overtook. Driver in the car that was scrapped sounds his car horn. Road Bully stops his car (and the car he overtook), opens the door and walks over the driver and says "You got problem with my driving? You got problem, is it...? You want to fight, is it? Come out and fight like a jantan la...". Jantan is Malay for 'male'. Driver gets scared and apologises to the bully. Road bully is still not happy and continues "Don't think this is over you know. Just because you don't see me does not mean I cannot make your life miserable. I know your boss, I know your boss's boss. And I know this MP... I even know your neighbour's wife. So don't play-play with me!"

These politicians represent us. Are these the values we want them to represent? Are these the people we believe can best represent us and be role models and leaders for all of us?

Some of these politicians are a laugh. They never fail to amuse me when I watch them on TV. News clipping of these politicians banging their hands on the table, losing their temper, calling people names... They make me laugh. But they also make me wonder... Thugs or leaders?

Indeed they are not 'leaders'. They are not leading by good examples. In fact, they have shown a good amount of time they have no interest to lead.

Leading the country is not their main priority when they can openly asks for government projects in an assembly mainly meant for representatives to report their achievements the past year and what problems they are facing in the community they represents at the moment.

So, they are not leaders and not politicians. They are businessmen! Talking about UMO Inc.

Right now, it seems the UMO business con-men are trying to keep bloggers from saying anything damaging to their rule. Utter folly!

When the law is passed, we'll be confined to blogging about our lives, jokes, nonsense and whatnot. To comment about them, we need to sing their musics.

So fake. But they are fake politicians to begin with.

i can only hope things will get better... :(

at this rate, it's really disheartening to see the country go down the dumps. while i'm not proud to admit this, but look at our neighbour. after splitting up with us, they seem to be doing quite well.

we should really start to focus on the BIGGER issues...
