Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

I Could Be PM ... Nov 06, 2008

If you read this morning's headline oh ok maybe it wasn't the headline but a byline somewhere (I forget now) you would have read this incredulously mind boggling statement by Sleepy Eyes the PM everyone is pointing the exit door to but he just refuses to leave.

Anyone can be PM - says Pak Lah ... and then you read the rest of the report.

quote " It is possible for anyone from a minority group to be a nation’s leader, even in Malaysia, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi.

“It is up to the people to decide, just as the Americans had done through the democratic process,” he said while extending his congratulations to Senator Barack Obama."unquote


Does this now mean that I too can be Prime Minister of this country? or what Sleepy Eyes saying is that even if you are a 'Minority' within UMNO then you can still aspire to be Prime Minister.

I'm confused.

Didn't we just have some big hulabaloo about some minority group questioning the sole rights of the Malays as the PM incumbent hence other races were like dogs scavenging for crumbs if there was any to scavenge.

Have we not got politicians forever pulling out the race card and shoving 'Ketuanan Melayu' down our throats any given chance?

Didn't we wake up one morning recently to find racist pigs like Khir Toyo suddenly looking like a favourite to take on the UMNO Youth??? Can you imagine the generation of racist pigs we will then have to deal with.

I am stumped. And I think everyone else who read this in the morning was left stumped. I was looking up the Malaysian Constitution and come away a little more confused ...

Article 43 clause 7 reads (7) Notwithstanding anything in this Article, a person who is a citizen by naturalization or by registration under Article 17 shall not be appointed Prime Minister.

Now I went up to have a look at Article 17 - all it had was Repealed. And I looked at the footnotes to try to understand what Article 17 might have been and your guess is as good as mine nothing ... hmmmm ok so am not a fervent analyst of the constitution and usually end up just listening to the 'learned informed' crowd's arguements but anyone know if this Article 17 is what keeping us minority fookers from becoming PM?

Anyways my vote for PM is still my quad-bellied (self confessed) sweetheart buddy Kerp! I'm better off using my whip on some other Ministries to ensure the betterment of Women and Children's Rights - and me thinks with Kerp as PM, I'd get that portfolio in a blink :)) - he won't fight with akka for sure heehhehe.

So Mr. Prime Minister aka Sleepy Eyes, please read the writings on the wall and before you make anymore musang berlalu (faux paus la seeing as most M'sians say it as 'fox pass') embarrassing moments, the door is very clearly on your left ... do exit stage as soon as possible. Or else you're going to stir the shit so hard it's going to hit the fan and knock your replacement off his precarious chair in waiting ...

Minority groups can be PM too indeed - go tell this joke to some uneducated fool, the rest of us have taken enough of your 'sandiwara'.

Change is inevitable - I agree - It begins with you taking a long pre-retirement sabbatical. Let your designate swim the in the quicksand before he drowns in all the shit as well - people want change and people will have it ... eventually.
