The best of times

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

Deaar deminimis,

The nation & I share your despair & hopelessness...

Malaysia badly needs “Role Model” established Leaders & Politicians of HONOUR with Calibre, Maturity & Tolerance without Fear or Favour & NOT Political OPPORTUNISTS – on BOTH sides of the Political Divide.

Further this nation Desperately needs Intelligent, Time Proven Pragmatic Successful modelled, Financial & Politiical “SOLUTIONS” NOW on BOTH sides of the Political Divide, to MITIGATE the IMPENDING Political & Financial fallout.

The British educated & trained Intellectuals, Professionals, Economists, etc (Oxford, Cambridge, etc).

- In 1957 FINALLY gained our Independence from the “Colonial British Rulers” through the citizen’s “concerted” struggle & the Leadership of our Bapa Merdeka Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra & his Malayan cabinet of TRUE TUANS managing the system of Westminster style Democracy & with the Rule of Law in 1957,

That was the old UMNO (led by Tunku), MCA (lead by Tun Tan Cheng Lock) & MIC (lead by Tun Sambanthan) under the banner of the “Perikatan/Alliance” government.

Is not that the “Better & Smarter” choice by the Leadership of our Bapak Merdeka Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra & his Malayan cabinet of TRUE TUANS managing the system of Westminster style Democracy & with the Rule of Law in 1957….

Through INTELLIGENT POLITICAL NEGOTIATIONS & INTELLIGENT POLITICAL SOLUTIONS leading to a “Bloodless” handover & the Independence of Malaya!

It proves a point that Educated, Intelligent, Smart & Wise leaders do not have to resort to Threats, Militancy & unnecessary Battles with collateral damage & bloodshed to the citizens!

I was there at the Dataran Merdeka to witness the occassion on 31st August 1957 - the joy, tears & jubilation of Tunku, his cabinet & every Malay, Chinese, Indian, etc citizen of Malaya!

I hope we can accept the fact that our forefathers suffered but persevered & did not give up the struggle for Independence….,
until it was achieved!

Yes, Tunku & his Malaysian cabinet of TRUE TUANS, EARNED the RESPECT, TRUST & SUPPORT of ALL the Malayan citizens.

It was in 1969 our Bapak Merdeka/Malaysia Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra & his Malaysian cabinet of TRUE TUANS managing the system of Westminster style Democracy & with the Rule of Law was “Betrayed” with the “13th May 1969 BLOODY “coup d’état” by the “Elite UMNO Ketetuanan BEGGARS”….Tun Razak & his group…

- some of those are still “Alive, Kicking & Mentoring ALL the New Ketetuanan Beggar Wannabes.”

This great nation, its assets & its Anak Bangsa Malaysia have been abused for the last 40 years by these “Moronic Idiots & their Goons” through “Gutter Politics” & the “Law of the Jungle” ala Kindergarten style.

Desperate People, at Desperate Times, will RESORT to Desperate Henious Actions even if it means “Destroying” their “Honourable Family Legacy”, our Monarchy, All our nation’s Institutions, Pillars of Democracy & Justice, their own “MALAY MUSLIM HADHARI” party “UMNO” beyond “Redemption”, their own Kind, this country & its Many People!

- The “Common Denominator” in the scenario = ALL the UMNO/BN Leaders & Candidates they “Nominate” within their Party & at ALL the Institutions, GLCs & Corporates are Not Selected based on Merits….

- From top to bottom, MOST are NOT….

- The Right candidates for the “Specific” jobs…

I had the honour of meeting & sharing a discussion with the late Tun Tan Siew Sin & Tun Hussein Onn prior to their passing & their words & statements still ring clear in my ears….

“There is no more Honour left amongst our new leaders unlike during our time with Tunku!”
Gone are the days of the Established, Honourable Malaysian TUANS of our Bapak Malaysia Tunku & his 1st Cabinet Minister’s VALUES.

Party promotions based on “nepotism, patronization, money politics, etc” without “Meritocracy and Proven Successful Track Records” leads to “Leaders” that UMNO is inheriting….

- “Elite, Ketuanan UMNO BEGGARS” with their “Gutter Politics” & their “Law of the Jungle” ala Kindergarten style….

- “Quarreling with PR & Anak Bangsa Malaysia whilst still playing with Jaguh Kampung “MARBLES”….

- When all the other nation’s PM & FM are “Strategising & Synergising” on the International Political, Economic & Financial “CHESSBOARD”….

PRESENTLY our UMNO/BN Leaders “DO NOT EVEN Cross Talk” amongst themselves….

Nov 2007 Our new dawn was achieved - The citizen’s Yellow wave protest march to petition to our Agong.

The 8th March 2008 elections offered us an “Alternative” to the UMNO/BN Autocratic Government.

In 2009, We are ALL Anak Bangsa Malaysia in SYNERGY with RPK & His Barisan Rayaat Bloggers, Haris & his Anak Bangsa Malaysia, the Anti ISA Group & the many other Defenders of Truth, Justice, Equality, Human Rights & Freedom with our struggles to achieve our 2nd Independence….

Not from the British Administration, BUT from our own Autocratic Ketuanan UMNO Baru, MCA & MIC) regime.

YM RPK & MT including All the Pioneer & Mainstream Bloggers have achieved the “Impossible” with their “Provocative, Uncensored & Investigative Journalism to “AWAKEN, ENLIGHTEN & THEY HAVE STIMULATED” a large majority of Malaysians, Politicians on both sides of the divide, etc and with a Worldwide exposure….

Further, our RPK & his Barisan Rayaat Group, Haris & his Anak Bangsa Malaysia Group, Zorro & his fans, all the other groups & our “Defenders of Truth, Justice, Equality & Freedom” including all of you have done everything that is “Humanly” possible…

All Anak bangsa Malaysia share your “Despair” but we must accept the fact that not every Anak Bangsa Malaysia are as “Priviledged & INDEPENDENT” like some of us….

To do more than what they can “Volunteer to Support” with their tight budget, family & school going children with the impending Financial Tsunami….

I have been involved with many Charitable Organisations, Lions International Clubs, Rotary International Clubs, etc to see, learn & CONTRIBUTE my services, time & funds for many years….

To be the SILENT one to LEAD….so others may FOLLOW & EMULATE… VOLUNTARILY!

Let us all SHIFT our “Ketuanan, Racial, Religious, Personal, Selfish, Etc PARADIGM”…

To now think about “OUR GREAT NATION MALAYSIA for ANAK BANGSA MALAYSIA”…

Inline with the original “VALUES” which our Bapak Merdeka Tunku
Abdul Rahman Putra together with his first cabinet adopted - From TOP to BOTTOM.

With the impending Financial & Political Tsunami meltdown…

- FORGET about the Politics & what ANYONE is saying…

- NO one can SAVE this nation nor its ANAK Bangsa Malaysia NOW…

- Be PROACTIVE with our God Almighty’s gift of Intelligence, Ilham, Akal, etc to us all…

- Only WE can save OURSELF & OUR FAMILY & every man for himself….

- So please consider repositioning yourselves & family financially (mortgages, Loans, children’s educational expenditures, etc)…

- Rentals cheaper than >50% loans repayments; downsize your mortgages, cars/loans, etc.

- reposition your profession, career, jobs, etc;

- Remember every dollar is precious & “Cash is King”,

- Convert your MR to Euros, AUD, Sing Dollars, etc…Open foreign FD A/cs, etc

- As such…my frenz….“Pleez Fasten your seatbelts tight” to safely rideout this “Double Whammy” Financial & Political Tsunami!

Do keep up your “Prayers” to God Almighty in your own way for “Sanity, Human Rights, Justice, Freedom, Equality & Peace to “Prevail” over “EVIL.”
