Why MY Weltanschauung call some BN politicians IDIOTS :-
- Peaceful Assembly ENSHRINED in Malaysian Constitution
Notwithstanding qualifying clauses, Article 10 (b) states that:-
" all citizens have the right to assemble peaceably and without arms "
- Democracy Benchmark
Protests happens in matured democracy like Washington, USA or London,UK
and is credited with ending the Vietnam War and Poll Tax...amongst others!
- Spending Stimulus
Desperate times calls for revolutionary thinking! Malaysia's *foreign minister Anifah Aman comments vis-a-vis ASEAN approach towards Myanmar is a case in point! I would say having more protests actually stimulate the local economy by enriching the hawkers & petty traders...amongst others. This is because a protest is actually an EVENT.....and like most events, RM have to be spent!
" There are 3 types of LIES - Lies, Damned Lies & Statistics "
I do not know where the FT Minister( an alumni of the RMC ) got the figures of RM100-200m losses as a result of the "incident"...it would be interesting to see how the *FT minister qualifies his statement as compared to what an actuarist tabulates! I beg to differ with the FT Minister as I believe that well attended Protests actually adds value to the economy. Examples:-
- Increased TRANSPORTATION Spending
- Toll, Petrol, Plane/Taxis/LRT/Bus fare and/or charter etc.
- Increased F & B Spending -
- Increased MERCHANDISE & Related Items Spending
- T-Shirts, Caps, Badges, Posters, Newspapers etc.
- JOB CREATION & Increased SALARY
- Overtime Pay and/or Allowances for Reporters, Security personnel, DBKL Cleaners etc
Why MY Weltanschauung call some PR politicians IDIOTIC:
- H1N1 Spread
With the H1N1 outbreak in Malaysia spiralling out of control, only the extremely dumb will say that having hundreds of people let alone thousands...in a dense area a smart move - unless they think that SMART is the name of a car!
Note: *IF ONLY.....SMART countries had imposed a travel ban earlier!
- Getting KIDS involved
COWARDS get kids involved in their fight! ...but then again, in certain 'conflict' countries - kids are bearing arms.
MY Weltanschauung RM177 comments:
Najib's honeymoon is over!
at the end of the day, the ONLY person/body who came out of it with something is the Malaysian Police esp FRU who managed to get some practise after a long hiatus. After all ASEAN did not have the *ASEANAPOL-Police HQ in KL for no valid reason.
Perhaps it's time for a 3rd force in Politics
...something like the Liberal Democrats in UK!
Partai Kunci ( KEY Party )...ANYone???
