Thoughts for today

"The U.S. military can't win credibility in the Muslim world through new public relations strategies and instead must pursue actions that build trust, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

"We need to worry a lot less about how to communicate our actions and much more about what our actions communicate."

"Most strategic communication problems are not communication problems at all," he said. "They are policy and execution problems."

-- Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in an article for Joint Force Quarterly, a U.S. military journal

What about Malaysia?

Do the power that be, and those who deemed that they are the power that be, have the same credibility and trust? Can we trust them? Do we trust them?

The Chinese communities will survive in any harsh environment. Ironically, it is the MCA that finds the going tough and are primarily the source of anxieties. The far greater irony are those who laid claim to certain illusory rights and unfetted privileges but lives in their own dilemmas - dogmatism.

MCA and Gerakan cannot win credibility because they are part of the BN, which is a sham.

MCA and Malaysia is nothing more like Toilet-Paper and Toilet-Bowl.

We only trust them when we need to do Sh*tting!

The centric of Chinese culture are YiJing, book of changes, adaption.

Since many Chinese don't understand it, I don't expect those with power willing to understand or learn it.

Mave,
This is pointed innuendo. Much generalised view so formed to give a certain perception of discontentment. While blinkers of truth is perceived, wholesale acceptance of it will yet give a more distorted view of the truth in question

It's a black merdeka indeed.
