Quote of the year: Something to chew on, while waiting for the New Year and the coming General Elections.
“If the Barisan Nasional is really strong as they claim, they do not have to resort to such measures.”

Ansari is also the lawyer for former Chief Minister of Sabah Chong Kah Kiat who filed a lawsuit against the Kudat Town Board over the construction of a Mazu statue)

It takes less than 3 seconds to sign an ISA detention order which condemns a person to indefinite detention without trial.
But it will take 3 weeks, according to Government prosecutors to prepare their case in court.
High Court judge Zainal Azman put off the hearing after the prosecution team, led by senior deputy public prosecutors Kamaludin Md Said and Abdul Wahab Mohd, said that they needed more time to prepare for the hearing.
“We will need at least three weeks to file in the 40 affidavits and prepare our case,” said Kamaludin. (Malaysiakini, 26 Dec 2007)
Yes, it takes this long. Despite what the Inspector-General of Police, Musa “Turn-Over” Hassan deems as irrefutable proof of the Hindraf-5’s terrorist links, apart from his litany of the five men’s alleged threat to national security.
Three whole weeks. Irrefutable proof. Wow.
Hearings will only commence Jan 24, 2008.

Despite the damper just before Xmas, thanks to a Deputy Minister and his Director-General with a combined IQ of an egg spewing rubbish, there’s still plenty of baking, roasting, cuddling, peace and good cheer to spread around.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays 🙂
I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
Yep. Home is where the heart is 🙂
19 Dec: Fight for your right to assembly! December 17, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Human Rights, Malaysia, Note2Self, Politics.
In recent weeks, the Government and their NGO cronies have embarked on a campaign to stop and suppress the rights of Malaysians to peaceful assemble.
The Right to assemble is a fundamental right enshrined in the Federal Constitution Article 10, Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 (Article 20) and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights 1966 (Article 21)
Based on the intimidation, threat and the use of draconian laws like the police Act Section 27 and the misuse of Magistrate Court order to suppress assemblies and the continues use of malicious advertisement in media, the Government is all out to put an end to Peaceful Public Assemble.
If we allow this, it would be a major blow to human rights and our democratic rights.
To defend the Rights to Public Assemble, The Coalition To Defend – Right To Assemble which is represented by community based organization, NGOs and political parties will organize a peaceful assemble at SUHAKAM
To highlight and protect :
1. The Right to peaceful assembly as enshrined under Article 10 of the Federal Constitution
2. To support the position of SUHAKAM in protecting the right to peaceful assembly and its position in opposing the issuing of police permits.
3. To oppose and protest the action of the Government and other parties in undermining the Right of the Rakyat to assemble peacefully
The Peaceful Assembly as well as the memorandum handing ceremony will take place in SUHAKAM office as follows:
Date : 19 December 2007 (Wednesday)
Time : 11 am
Venue : SUHAKAM Office
Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur

A touching portrait of V. Ganabathirau, from Tony Pua, DAP economic advisor and head of DAP Damansara branch.
Ganabathi will not have the chance to see his 8-month old baby girl grow up, thanks to Abdullah Badawi and UMNO.
Please forward this around as you won’t get to read this in any of our mainstream newspapers. Pah…

Dua hari selepas Udayakumar, penasihat undang-undang HINDRAF telah menjelaskan kepada Utusan Malaysia bahawa HINDRAF bukan pertubuhan anti-Melayu, tetapi musuh sebenarnya ialah UMNO, kini beliau bersama 4 rakan-rakannya ditahan di bawah Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negara (ISA).
Bilakah musuh UMNO boleh menjadi musuh negara?
Cis. Bebal betul Pak Lah ni. Pandai bazir wang, pandai tidur. Pandai buat tak tau. ‘Zero’ kemahiran mentadbir negara.
Jangan biar negara kita sampai ke tahap parah seperti Zimbabwe dan Myanmar.
Lawan tetap lawan.
Lawan demi maruah.
Lawan sampai menang.
(Kemaskini) Sesiapa yang berada di Pulau Pinang, sila datang ke “Malam untuk Keadilan” yang memberi sokongan kepada semua orang yang ditahan. Program ini dianjur oleh pihak Suaram-Pulau Pinang dan rakan-rakan NGO di utara.

A new species was discovered in Malaysia, a country close to the equator, in November 2003. Political scientists have called it ‘Hippocretin‘ and is said to be a cross-breed between a hypocrite and a cretin. It is believed this new being which resembles a chicken, is easily spotted with its Big Ears, has an IQ of ‘Ling-ling’ and the ability to fall asleep anytime, thus needing constant guidance and prodding from his brood to move around. It loves Nasi Kandar but definitely not floods. It is known to be afraid of crowds.But seriously.This is a little rich, coming from someone who flew off to Venezeula, then a week’s holiday in Perth (and caught opening a Nasi Kandar shop of his family’s, of all things!), when the country faced the worst floods ever in its history.Is buying a RM 200 million personal jet a form of loving your country, when fuel subsidies are cut and inflation spirals?Is enriching your family and friends with titles, contracts and money a patriotic act? Do you know the difference between filial acts and patriotism.Is silencing people who have legitimate grouses and demonstrate peacefully with chemical-laced water, teargas, batons, mass arrests, media machinery, called loving your people?IS ARRESTING UDAYAKUMAR, MANO etc. WITHOUT TRIAL under the ISA, taking away their right to defend themselves in an open court, a fair and just action?No, Hippocretin.It’s a cowardly act.
