FELDA in News for the WRONG Reasons.....

malaysiakini has this good news for the Settlers get RM11 mil from Felda after the court ruling that they had been cheated by downgrading the quality of their fruit.
It make you wonder who benefitted from such a plot to cheat the Felda settlers who are not so highly educated.
Just look at those happy faces. It is good that after 10 years of the good fight against a powerful company, they have succeeded.
Was it the buying agent of the fruit who could then supply the mills with inferior fruit and make a profit from the fruit collected from the settlers?
Already Felda has come under close scrutiny over the drastic reduction of its cash reserves over the past few years.
Certainly the Felda management should check out why and how the settlers were being cheated to prevent similar abuse elsewhere.

Another Product of the BTN?

malaysiakini and other MSM have this story about the Headmistress of a school in Johore who insulted her non-Malay pupils with demands they could go back to China or India.
I have no doubt that in Malaysia, most people have some racial prejudices but it seems in Malaysia, people in authority or influence can get away with public insults of others. It is definitely not helping the 1Malaysia idea that is being promoted by the PM Najib.
After many police reports were made, the Minister of Education has now ordered a probe on the
'Racist' headmistress

Sorry but you have failed in your duty as the Minister of Education for rubbishing the 1Malaysia concept with your "I am Malay first...." ideology.
How can people in authority follow your type of leadership.
There is no need for any more delaying tactics with such a probe. Just don't interfere with the police investigations.
I hope the voters in the next GE will echo the words of Donald Trump to tell you:

The BULLET in the Mail.....

According to the malaysiakini report Bullet in the mail for Pua, the DAP MP has been targeted for speaking up against the housing discount for Bumis.

He did not say anything radical; just pointing out that the discount for luxury homes for Bumis should be discontinued as first-time house buyers needed more help than the privileged rich.
I would go even further to redress this housing injustice.
We need a policy that provides a housing allowance for ALL first-time house buyers for properties not exceeding RM250k. This allwance could be a tax rebate so only registered taxpayers will be assisted.
The present system is totally unjust when a person who already owns properties can get discounts simply based on race.

For this he gets a bullet in the mail?
Truly we have some sickos in Malaysia.

Desaru Trip and Death on the Road

My family spent a few days at Lotus Desaru Resort that was 100% full of mainly Singaporeans getting away for the long weekend.
The place is OK and I would rate it as a 3-star resort; with the staff struggling to hope with the 1000 holiday-makers.
The trip was marred though as there was a fatal accident about 5km before the turn-off to Johor Lama.
The road was a 2-lane road without the central divider and the accident involved a lorry trailer loaded with oil palm fruit that was headed towards Kota Tinggi and a passenger car. My daughter saw 2 bodies covered with plastic and I saw a black plastic wrapping what I thought was that of a small child.
The accident caused queues about 1km long on both sides of the accident scene and as usual motorists became impatient and started using the road shoulders to cut the queue. There was no police control except right at the scene of the mishap.
By the time we got past, the Bomba department were trying to extricate the driver of the lorry. The lorry had overturned and was blocking one lane of the road and oil palm fruit was scattered all over.
The accident delayed our arrival at the resort by about one hour.
We left on Tuesday and most of the crowd had returned on Monday, so there was a nice feel of spaciousness then and the restaurant staff were able to operate at a more sane level.
On the way back we made a brief stop at the Desaur Fruit farm and the Crocodile World at Telok Sengat. The crocodile farm was well worth the visit.
If you plan to drive during the festive season, make sure you are well and also have adequate rest before you start your journey.
If you have just passed your driving test, ask a more experienced driver to check your driving before you drive solo. That could help to prevent you becoming another fatal statistic on Malaysia's killer roads.

“We were once Malaysians” so we are told
The sorry saga took 40 years to unfold
Meanwhile our institutions have turned to crap
With simple citizens falling into the traps.

When cops who pledge to guard our lives
Simply connive with crooks to cause some dives
With judges abusing the laws for political masters
The nation’s headed for impending disasters

When security laws are treated with disdain
Peaceful vigils can result in great pain
From heavy boots and chemical sprays to protest
The ordinary folks are simply no contest

Penans can protest their rights to live with trees
The bulldozers unrelenting force shows no one is free
We have become enslaved with NEP and Ketuanan*
The most vicious strains of virus for manusia-an.*

FDIs have fled from Malaysia and may never come back
An eighty percent drop is disastrous someone deserves the sack!
When will sleeping Malaysians wake up to reality?
The Bankrupsi Negara regime end made a finality.

We are still Malaysians we must uphold
Human dignity the birthright of all the fold
With proper plans to aid all the poor
Neither race nor creed to be shown the door
But first we must reclaim our rights and join the cause
To vote new leaders who respect us without pause

Vision2020 is a dream turned into nightmare
With constant plunder there’s nothing left to share
Our young have moved to distant shores
Deserted villages lie beyond our doors

If you plan to swallow the 1Malaysia crap
Learn to live on a boot-strap
If you want Malaysia to change for the better
You must break that voting fetter

After forty plus years of Bankrupsi Negara rules
Can we still ponder to remain like fools?
Allowing the corrupt and murder to rule our lives
To change for the better we must strive

So think hard but don’t take too long
The nation’s weak and heart’s not strong
Come vote the day we can freedom reclaim
Your birthright to regain Malaysia’s fame.

*Ketuanan - Malay word meaning superiority, tuan means "master"
*manusia - Malay word meaning human beings

Why Many Malaysians Worry About 1Malaysia

When Vision2020 was crafted the people believed it.
Alas the dream has turned into a nightmare and all of us, including the foreign investors were conned.
Vision2020 was manipulated using the NEP and Ketuanan mantra to plunder the nation by the Bankrupsi Negara regime.
That should go into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's greatest scam and the mother of all crimes that affected the lives of at least 30mil people.
You may query the 30mil number - so this is how the numbers add up.
27mil residents (2008 World Bank)
3mil resident overseas(my guess)

So it is not surprising that 1Malaysia is met with derision and scorn. It is the same snake oil salesman peddling the product with different APCO packaging, Just because it is foreign packaging does not mean the product is superior.
Malaysians have to take more control of their own destiny than rely on politicians with forked ("I am Malay first.....) tongues.
