The real reason why we are always behind

We Malaysians always think we are so smart and powerful.

But why are other people in our neighbourhood doing so much better than we are?

Maybe the reason is that we're not so smart, after all, as we think we are.

It's only when the tide goes out do you find out who is not wearing a swimming suit.

A dollar is a dollar is a dollar!

A dollar made is worth the same as a dollar made - from manufacturing, from you salary, from kickbacks, from under-table, from top of table, from selling services, be it services of labor, brain or down-under, or anything that you service.

The cracks in our social and political systems are visible and alarming and the decay had set in. We have allowed and implicitly encourage our loss of focus of the real issue we faced; the nation have diverted enormous energy, money and attention to the war against, not our enemy but our very own. Since we do not have an outright external enemy, it had to be created from within so that those who cannot work hard can have a right to demand from those others who can.

The millions of top brains who had beginning 1969 emigrated to countries which practise meritocracy are definitely the main causes of Malaysia's continuous slide in every field. The rate of brain drain has since been picking up in recent years, hence the the very tangible negative impact should be increasingly be more apparent, accentuated further by the rise in corruption of public officials.

Malaysia politicians are "smart" but the rakyat are "bodoh".

Our BN politicians has learnt & copied the British tactics of "Divide & Rule" and then the American way of creating a pseudo enemy to benefit themselves.

There is a continuous process of brain drain from Malaysia to Singapore...."Smart" people are leaving. Meanwhile, our politicians send their sons & daughters for further studies & exposures overseas in order that they too become "smart" leaders to continue to rule over us, the majority "bodoh" rakyat. This process will repeat again & again unless the majority "bodoh" rakyat wake up. But when??

Missing RMAF jet engine discovered sold

BAGAN DATOH: The Royal Malaysia Air Force (RMAF) F-5E fighter jet engine missing since 2007 was sold to an international company based in South Africa, said Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He said the company was believed to have hired an agent to bring the RM50mil engine out of the country.

“The ministry will take legal action at the international level to charge the company involved.

“Stern action will also be taken against RMAF involved for betraying the country,” he told reporters after launching an environmental programme here Saturday.

Ahmad Zahid confirmed that all documents pertaining to the sale of the engine had been obtained by the police.

“The international company was interested in buying the engine because the price was cheap, as it was a spare part categorised as faulty and would be repaired,” he said.

Local dailies reported Saturday that police had arrested four individuals, including RMAF officers, in connection with the missing F-5E fighter jet engine. -- Bernama

I have nevered cared about being rich. But as I have a family, I have to make a living.. just a simple living. I was blocked by Govt policies giving preference to some and by Chinese business practice of locking out non-Chinese.

I only wanted to be free. I did not want to be a MP or Menteri, or even join a political party. I wanted to be free to educate my kids to their potential. This the BN Govt tried to deny me. So I left.

I took my family and y UK & foreign qualifications with me. After 20 years I am a millionaire in real dollars. I did not have to kiss ass, steal or lie. I just worked hard. But I could not do that in Malaysia.
