Petrol. Rakyat yang bagi subsidi!



Ini fakta...
Harga minyak dunia sekarang $ 75.58 @ RM 253.44 setong @ 1 barrel
1 barrel bersamaan 159 liter...

Harga seliter :-

159 liter = RM 253.44
      1 liter = RM 253.44 / 159
                   = RM 1.59

RM 1.59 - RM 0.20 (subsidi) = RM 1.39
Harga runcit utk 1 liter = RM 2.30

RM 2.30 - RM 1.39 = RM 0.91

Siapa bg siapa subsidi?????

Hapus Subsidi Untuk Tanggung Pembaziran Putrajaya


PKR mengecam pengumuman Putrajaya yang memansuhkan subsidi bahan api RON95 dan diesel, menyifatkan langkah tersebut sebagai menanggung pembaziran yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah.

Setiausaha Agung PKR Rafizi Ramli berkata pentadbiran Datuk Seri Najib Razak berusaha membolot seluruh kekayaan negara dengan mengambil langkah menghapuskan subsidi selama ini yang dinikmati rakyat.

"Dengan penghapusan subsidi petrol dan diesel, keseluruhan kekayaan hasil minyak dan gas dibolot sepenuhnya oleh Barisan Nasional.

"Mereka menentukan berapa peruntukan yang sampai kepada rakyat. Dalam keadaan pentadbiran Datuk Seri Najib Razak, terbukti tidak berniat menghapuskan rasuah, malah diburukkan lagi dengan skandal 1MDB dan lain-lain," kata Rafizi dalam satu kenyataan hari ini. 


Rafizi juga mempertikaikan langkah tersebut kerana dilihat lebih untukmembiayai pemborosan dan rasuah yang berlaku dalam Putrajaya.

"Penghapusan subsidi ini bermakna kekayaan hasil minyak dan gas dipusatkan sepenuhnya bagi membiayai segala pembaziran dan rasuah yang kian berlaku oleh pentadbiran Najib."

Dengan keputusan penghapusan tersebut, Rafizi berkata rakyat kini tidak lagi menikmati kekayaan bersama subsidi bahan api, sebaliknya akan dibelanjakan dengan sewenang- wenangnya.
"Persoalan subsidi petrol dan diesel di negara ini bukan terhad kepada keputusan ekonomi samada subsidi baik atau buruk untuk ekonomi negara.

"Prinsip yang lebih besar ialah sama ada kekayaan hasil minyak dan gas negara dikongsi bersama dengan rakyat, bukannya dibelanjakan sewenang-wenangnya oleh pemerintah di Putrajaya," katanya.

Ahli Parlimen Pandan tersebut juga menggesa supaya Putrajaya menarik balik langkah tersebut, sebaliknya membenarkan syarikat minyak menetapkan harga petrol RON95 dan diesel masing-masing tertakluk kepada harga siling.

"Dengan cara ini, rakyat akan dapat memilih untuk membeli minyak pada harga paling rendah, bukannya yang ditetapkan oleh kerajaan," katanya.

Dalam pada itu, Rafizi juga berkata satu demonstrasi akan diadakan bagi membantah pengumuman tersebut pada 31 Disember nanti.

"Dengan pengumuman Barisan Nasional pada hari ini, demonstrasi #turunhargaminyak pada 31 Disember 2014 akan turut menuntut supaya sistem subsidi dikembalikan," katanya.

Harga runcit petrol RON95 kini ialah RM2.30 seliter dan diesel RM2.20 seliter.

Dengan pengumuman ini, harga purata RON95 yang direkodkan pada pasaran dunia dari 1 hingga 19 November 2014 ialah RM2.27 seliter, berbanding harga di pam RM2.30.

Penetapan harga RON95 dan diesel pada 1 Disember nanti bergantung pada harga purata pasaran minyak dunia sepanjang November.- TMI


Hapus subsidi RON95, diesel tindakan terkutuk & tidak bertanggungjawab

Saya mengecam sekeras-kerasnya tindakan Dato’ Seri Najib Razak dan pentadbiran beliau yang mengorbankan kebajikan dan kepentingan rakyat apabila subsidi petrol RON95 dan diesel dihapuskan sepenuhnya bermula 1 Disember 2014, seperti yang diumumkan sebentar tadi.

Persoalan subsidi petrol dan diesel di negara ini bukan terhad kepada keputusan ekonomi sama ada subsidi baik atau buruk untuk ekonomi negara. Prinsip yang lebih besar ialah sama ada kekayaan hasil minyak dan gas negara dikongsi bersama dengan rakyat, bukannya dibelanjakan sewenang-wenangnya oleh pemerintah di Putrajaya.

Melalui kaedah subsidi petrol dan diesel yang digunapakai selama berpuluh tahun, sebahagian dari kekayaan itu dikongsi terus dengan rakyat tanpa perlu menunggu peruntukan yang diputuskan oleh pemerintah di Putrajaya.

Dengan penghapusan subsidi petrol dan diesel, keseluruhan kekayaan hasil minyak dan gas dibolot sepenuhnya oleh Barisan Nasional. Mereka menentukan berapa peruntukan yang sampai kepada rakyat. Dalam keadaan pentadbiran Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak telah terbukti tidak berniat untuk menghapuskan rasuah malah diburukkan lagi dengan skandal 1MDB dan lain-lain, penghapusan subsidi ini bermakna kekayaan hasil minyak dan gas dipusatkan sepenuhnya bagi membiayai segala pembaziran dan rasuah yang kian berlaku oleh pentadbiran Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Saya menolak sepenuhnya penghapusan subsidi petrol dan diesel ini dan berazam akan terus bersama-sama aktivis dan rakyat menuntut harga minyak diturunkan bermula dengan demonstrasi #turunhargaminyak pada 31 Disember 2014. Dengan pengumuman Barisan Nasional pada hari ini, demonstrasi pada 31 Disember 2014 akan turut menuntut supaya sistem subsidi dikembalikan.

Sementara menunggu tekanan dari rakyat mengembalikan sistem subsidi petrol dan diesel, saya juga mendesak Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak berlaku adil dengan rakyat dengan serta-merta mengumumkan perkara-perkara berikut:

1. Membatalkan hasrat menetapkan harga petrol dan diesel melalui sistem apungan harga terkawal (managed floating pricing system) sebaliknya membenarkan syarikat-syarikat minyak menetapkan harga petrol RON95 dan diesel masing-masing tertakluk kepada harga siling. Dengan cara ini, rakyat akan dapat memilih untuk membeli minyak pada harga paling rendah, bukannya yang ditetapkan oleh kerajaan. Ia juga memberi insentif kepada syarikat-syarikat minyak supaya lebih cekap dan tidak hanya bergantung kepada perlindungan kerajaan melalui harga seragam seperti yang berlaku sekarang. Melalui cara ini iaitu melaksanakan harga terbuka, syarikat-syarikat yang ada kaitan dengan pimpinan Barisan Nasional seperti PETRON akan mengalami kesukaran untuk bersaing kerana mereka bukanlah syarikat minyak yang mempunyai operasi berintegrasi di hiliran dan huluan;

2. Mengumumkan penghapusan cukai eksais kereta secara berperingkat untuk memastikan harga kereta akan lebih selari dengan harga pasaran seperti yang dibayar oleh pengguna di negara-negara lain. Selama ini Barisan Nasional memberi alasan rakyat terpaksa membayar cukai eksais kereta yang tinggi kerana kerajaan memberikan subsidi petrol dan diesel, alasan ini kini tidak boleh digunapakai. Jika harga petrol dan diesel ditetapkan mengikut kos dan pasaran, maka harga kereta juga perlulah mengikut harga pasaran.

Kegagalan atau keengganan Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak mengumumkan kedua-dua perkara di atas bermakna beliau mengundang kemarahan rakyat. Jika cukai-cukai kereta tidak dihapuskan, pentadbiran beliau dijangka mengutip RM17.3 bilion dari rakyat bagi segala jenis cukai kenderaan tahun depan tanpa sedikit pun dipulangkan kepada rakyat dalam bentuk subsidi.

Apa pun alasan Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak selepas ini, saya menyeru semua rakyat, NGO dan aktivis untuk turun beramai-ramai pada 31 Disember 2014 untuk menuntut #turunhargaminyak dan dikembalikan sistem subsidi.

Najib: tanda kiamat politik Umno



Saya pernah menulis dalam Majalah Suara Baru sewaktu permulaan Najib dilantik menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia dengan petikan berikut “ ERA NAJIB – mampukan Najib membawa harapan baru atau hanya menyempurnakan nafas terakhir Umno” Hari ini serangan ke atas pentadbiran Najib Tun Abdul Razak akan dan sekiranya di teliti sudah bermula.

Paluan gendang perang sudah berbunyi dan Najib pasti akan terus di lanyak lumat sehingga beliau terpaksa melepaskan jawatan yang ada.

Ini adalah hipotesis yang ada hari ini.


Masa Najib, sekiranya serangan ini bermula sudah terhad. Arah haluan media sudah mula menunjukkan tanda-tanda kritikan terhadap Najib sudah bermula.

Serangan dari bekas Perdana Menteri kepada penganalisis politik termasuk ahli dalam Umno sendiri – sudah akan ada. Isu 1MDB, isu akta hasutan semua akan berkumandang sebagai bahan pembakar serangan.

Media alternatif juga – khususnya pembangkang sudah mula menyentuh isu ini melibatkan Umno – serangan terhadap Najib - dilanjutkan dengan spekulasi tindakan menaikkan Hishammuddin sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan spekulasi Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin akan meletakkan jawatan sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri. Lihat artikel berikut :

http://www.malaysia-chronicle.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=402851:muhyiddin-resignation-soon?-armed-with-the-green-light-from-najib-successor-hisham-waits-in-the-wings&Itemid=2#axzz3JgmYR64A

Ini semua dibentuk untuk menunjukkan Najib sedar beliau akan di humban keluar dan untuk terus menjaga kepentingan diri, Hishammuddin mahu dilantik sebagai Perdana Menteri Malaysia menggantikan beliau kelak.

Ini pasti akan memberi gambaran berlainan dalam Umno.

Cara mainan media pembangkang amat tersusun sekali – memanipulasi logik yang ada – baik untuk pembangkang menerima mahupun untuk Umno menilai berita ini.

Arah tulisan media amat teliti dengan hipotesis yang tidak lari dari logik dan kemelut politik.

Tidak juga dinafikan kemungkinan sirkulasi serangan ini juga mainan dalam Umno yang menggunakan khidmat media pembangkang.

Metodologi sebegini tidak ada dalam Umno. Media Umno kaku bertindak mengikut arah angin masing-masing.

Semua tidak tersusun dan tidak berarah.

Ini adalah senario benar yang ada sehingga Umno gagal melawan persepsi-persepsi yang di bentuk ke atas parti tersebut.

Kepimpinan Najib sendiri gagal membentuk pertahanan yang kuat dalam media alternatif.

Maka persepsi Najib akan terus ditekan untuk digantikan semakin membengkak.

Malah pada PRU13 juga – atur Umno dalam media tidak menampakkan dominasi Umno sungguhpun inventori cukup dan peruntukkan amat besar sekali tapi gagal dalam mainan propaganda khususnya mendominasi minda pembaca.

Hari ini, seakan nampak gerakan sudah bermula untuk menekan Najib dalam media dan juga hakikat politik yang ada.

Dalam keadaan Umno akan mengadakan perhimpunan tahunan mereka – kejutan kecil berlaku dengan wujud tindakan dalaman membuat protes - meletak jawatan membantah Presiden Umno. Laporan media berikut :

http://www.selangorpress.com/blog/ketua-cawangan-letak-jawatan-protes-presiden-umno/

menunjukkan Ketua Pemuda Cawangan –Simpang Morib melepaskan jawatan dan mengatakan kekecewaan terhadap Najib selaku Presiden Umno.

Ini semua membayangkan permulaan – serangan terhadap Najib. Adakah serangan ini akan lebih menyeluruh lagi sampai kepada Perhimpunan Agung Umno yang akan diadakan tidak lama lagi.

Ahli Umno baru ini di desak untuk meninggalkan budaya bodek dan mengampu dalam PAU yang akan datang ini.

Apakah saranan yang dibuat sesetengah pihak ini adalah untuk memulakan suara-suara garang mengkritik pentadbiran Najib.

Apa pun untuk memulakan gerakan menggantikan Najib tindakan Tun Dr Mahathir adalah pemulanya.

Suara Tun M masih lagi berwibawa kuat dalam politik Umno.

Sebarang kritikan akan diambil serius dan mampu mengubah landskap politik Umno.

Tindakan mempersoalkan Najib sahaja sudah menimbulkan pusaran dalam Umno.

Adakah tindakan Mahathir ini menandakan kiamat pentadbiran Najib.

Najib semakin di kritik bukan sahaja dari dalam malah hadir dalam Umno sendiri.

Apa yang terbuku dalam hati ahli Umno – ketidakpuasan akan mula terledak.

Suara mempersoalkan “winner able candidate” sewaktu pemilihan calon juga melukakan beberapa pihak akan juga dipersoalkan, langkah mengambil semua orang-orang kanan bertanding – dan kalah membuat Najib di persoalkan, isu – isu semasa – seperti pemberian BR1M turut dikatakan satu kesalahan yang mencubit kedudukan kewangan dan hasilnya dikatakan – adalah mengenakan rakyat semula untuk mendapat semua pemberian tersebut, isu 1MDB mula berkumandang dengan kehilangan beratus juta ringgit serta persoalan jaminan kerajaan.

Hari ini mekanisme petrol juga menjadi konflik yang wujud.

Persoalan juga ditambah dengan desakan dalam tidak menghapuskan Akta Hasutan dan ketegangan yang wujud dalam persoalan perkauman – agama yang tidak cantik di tangani akan turut dipersoalkan.

Adakah Najib mampu bertahan dengan kelompok yang ada di sekeliling beliau.

Adakah mereka yang ada itu sedar apa yang mula terbentuk dalam arus bawah ini.

Berapa lama agaknya Najib mampu bertahan dengan tanda-tanda sudah wujud untuk menolak beliau dari terus memimpin Umno dan negara dan apa sebenarnya akan dilakukan kroni beliau dalam masa serangan ini bermula.

Akhirnya kita harus dari hari ini meneliti tanda-tanda kiamat politik Najib dan apa kesannya terhadap PRU akan datang.

Adakah kegagalan Najib ini merupakan nafas terakhir Umno pada PRU 14 nanti.

Adakah kiamat politik Najib merupakan penyempurnaan nafas terakhir Umno dalam politik tanah air.

Adakah kita akan melihat Umno sebagai pembangkang dan apakah Umno mampu menjadi pembangkang yang kuat? Hakikatnya menjadi pembangkang yang lemah di Selangor sahaja sudah terbukti. – 22 November, 2014.

CITY HALL SHOCKER! 3 plots of land worth RM1.5bil sold for RM671 mil - who is responsible?

CITY HALL SHOCKER! 3 plots of land worth RM1.5bil sold for RM671 mil - who is responsible?
KUALA LUMPUR - City Hall has come under fire for its decision to sell three pieces of prime land through direct negotiation, with Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai claiming the transaction was carried out at the expense of taxpayers.
He said the three lots were purchased by three companies for RM671.6 million, when their market value would have amounted to RM1.5 billion according to independent valuers.
"Why were the three lots sold to private companies without tender and at a lower price?" he said at a press conference yesterday.
"This would only incur losses for the government and be a burden to the people."
Tan said the Kuala Lumpur Velodrome was located on one of the lots but was only sold for RM146.6 million; while the second lot, which had three of City Hall's department buildings was sold for RM380 million.
The third lot, he said, was 0.55ha located in the city centre but was only sold for RM145 million.
He said the government would not have suffered an estimated loss of RM900 million if the sale had been done through open tender.
"City Hall now has to fork out RM83 million for a new velodrome complex in Bandar Tun Razak.
"The buildings of the three departments are to be demolished and more will have to be spent to relocate them."
Tan said he had highlighted the issue in Parliament on Wednesday and Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor had said it was unnecessary to have an open tender for the sale.
"He (Tengku Adnan) had said the three lots had been valued by the Valuation and Property Services Department and denied the sale was scandalous.
"This is one enormous area of wastage that would only bring more burden to the people."
Tan said Kuala Lumpur DAP Youth would lodge a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission next week. -Malay Mail

TERESA KOK SCORNS 'COWARDLY' SYED ALI for not daring to debate 1MDB at Umno meet

TERESA KOK SCORNS 'COWARDLY' SYED ALI for not daring to debate 1MDB at Umno meet
DAP vice-chairman Teresa Kok today lashed out at an Umno division chief, saying Datuk Seri Syed Ali Alhabshee was afraid to take up her challenge to debate 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) during the Umno general assembly next week.
She said that Umno members, including Syed Ali, should be bold enough to discuss the scandal-ridden sovereign fund and not resort to hiding their fears behind baseless attacks on DAP.
"The issues related to 1MDB, raised by DAP and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad are very serious, which Umno delegates should be bold to take up in their debates," she said in a statement today.
"Syed Ali, the Umno Cheras divisional chief's response to my statement two days ago shows one simple fact – that he is not bold enough to raise the 1MDB issue at the Umno general assembly.
"In order to hide this fact, he has chosen to make baseless attacks against me and DAP. The attacks include the allegation that I have in the past insulted the position of the Malays and Muslims," said the Seputeh MP.
Kok pointed out that Umno former president, Dr Mahathir, too had questioned 1MDB's debts, so Syed Ali was mistaken to have accused DAP of raising the issue to tarnish Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's image.
"Is Syed Ali going to allege that (Dr) Mahathir has politicised 1MDB issue to tarnish Najib’s image?" asked Kok.
She also questioned why Umno wanted to make vernacular schools a main debate topic, and wondered if it was a scapegoat for the "government’s failed policies to bring about genuine national unity".
"If Umno members are keen and concerned about issues of primary school education, they can always discuss rationally why national schools have failed to become the main choice of parents or why, as recently highlighted by the former prime minister, that more and more Umno ministers and leaders are sending their children to private or international schools, whether local or foreign," she said.
1MDB's financial troubles have been widely reported by local and international media, including its ability to pay its debt instalments and the lack of transparency over its operations.
PR lawmakers have also revealed that 1MDB has also been involved in shoddy deals with suspicious companies from several countries ever since it was set up in 2009.
Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua also pointed out that 1MDB has been forced twice to reschedule and restructure an overdue RM6.7 billion loan, incurring heavy costs and penalties.
Dr Mahathir was among 1MDB's staunchest critics, and has called on Putrajaya to explain how the fund had benefited Malaysians and added that there was no need for 1MDB as it only served to add on to the country's debt. –TMI

LESSON FOR NAJIB: Jokowi flies ECONOMY CLASS to son's graduation in Singapore

LESSON FOR NAJIB: Jokowi flies ECONOMY CLASS to son's graduation in S'pore
Unlike Malaysia's big-spending first couple, Indonesian President Joko Jokowi Widodo and wife flew to Singapore in an economy-class flight to attend the graduation ceremony of his youngest son, Kaesang Pangarep.
"(The President) will attend the graduation of his son from 7pm to 9pm (on Friday). He will return to Jakarta at 10am on Saturday," Indonesian Embassy in Singapore spokesperson Sukmo Yuwono told The Jakarta Post on Friday.
Corrupt old school vs globally-minded young voters
While Jokowi's move may be aimed to contain public anger at fuel subsidy cuts he has refused to postpone, his modest living will inevitably turn the regional spotlight on Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak and spouse Rosmah Mansor.

In Kuala Lumpur, Najib too is facing public anger over a fuel price hike announced last month and is now battling to avoid being embarrassed by rivals at his Umno party's annual meeting later this month.
The leader of South East Asia's second most populous Muslim nation after Indonesia, the 60-year-old Najib is often compared negatively against the reformist-minded Jokowi.
The fabulously wealthy Najib comes from a political dynasty. He is seen as part of a 'corrupt old world' that pushes a brand of racial and religious politicking that is now losing favor as a young and increasingly global-minded electorate stamp their mark in the region including in Malaysia.
Jokowi's use of an economy flight may stun the Najibs, who are known for their love of the high-life. Both Najib and Rosmah are often sharply criticized by their countrymen for using the government's private jet to make personal trips and planning overseas 'working' visits to coincide with their personal calendar. Recent examples include trips to the US, where Najib not only met with foreign officials but took significant time off to attend his daughter and later, his son's graduation.
Separation between personal and public money
Meanwhile, according to the Indonesian media, Jokowi's 19-year-old son Kaesang completed his international baccalaureate at ACS International Singapore.

On Thursday, Cabinet Secretary Andi Widjajanto said the President, along with a small entourage of Presidential Security Detail (Paspampres) officers, would fly from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to Singapore's Changi Airport on a commercial flight.
According to Andi, Jokowi refused to use the official presidential aircraft because the purpose of his visit was personal.
"Pak Jokowi will travel as Joko Widodo, not as President," he told reporters.
Jokowi and First Lady Iriana have three children: sons Kaesang and Gibran Rakabuming Raka, 27, and daughter Kahiyang Ayu, 23. - Malaysia Chronicle

BN on the brain

DEAN JOHNS
In case anybody noticed last week’s absence of my column fromMalaysiakini, my excuse if not justification is that I had to rush to complete my final university assignment of the year. An essay, as it happens, on the raving misogyny that infests the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900).
This strikes me as somewhat paradoxical, in view of the fact that one of my principal original aims in returning to academia was to regain the use of my brain after too many years of reading and writing about Malaysia’s mind-blowingly mad, bad BN regime.
Yet here I’ve found myself slaving away over Nietzsche, the very man whose manic writings about sex, race, power and supremacy have been appropriated, perverted and employed to propagandise every group of fascist goons from the Nazis to Barisan Nasional.
So here I am again with BN on the brain. But at least I can console myself that at least I’m not suffering from that far more dreaded and deadly of mental, emotional and ethical diseases afflicting the members, cronies and supporters of this criminal and incompetent regime, BN of the brain.
Of course this is not the innocent, everyday form of dementia from which so many innocent people tragically suffer, and which, among other hypothetical possibilities like syphilis, chloral hydrate abuse, brain cancer and hereditary insanity, may have been the cause of the above-mentioned Nietzsche’s mental incapacitation for the last 11 years of his life.
The BN brand of dementia is entirely self-inflicted or else feigned for the purposes of power and personal profit. In fact on further thought, it isn’t real dementia at all, and to keep calling it such serves only to give an honest if horrible disease a bad name. So from here on in, I propose to refer to BN’s brain-dead desire for power and domination by the more appropriate term ‘domentia’, and its deranged lust for money ‘doughmentia’.
Of course, as Sydney University Student News coincidentally informs me in its latest e-dition, the most common cause of genuine dementia is the awful Alzheimer’s Disease. And of course this is very much evident in BN circles in a variety of mutant forms.
Alcoheimer’s Disease, for example, whose symptoms are forgetting, and trying to ensure that the Malaysian people either forget or remain brainlessly ignorant of the fact that members and cronies of the BN regime have a great many shares if not majority interests in breweries, and that companies with family and other close connections to this ever-sanctimonious Muslim-majority gang of thieves have been granted ‘directly-negotiated’ or in other words corrupt monopolies for the supply of liquor-bottle labels.
Then there’s Allaheimer’s Disease, a mental malady apparently unique to Malaysia among all the Muslim-majority nations and Islamic states in the world, whose chief symptoms are forgetting or fanatically and fantastically denying the incontrovertible fact that ‘Allah’ is the generic Arabic word for the ‘God’ of the Muslim, Jewish and Christian religions; and a burning desire to ban the use of the word by non-Muslims.
Ibrahim Aliheimer’s Disease
And a closely-related intellectual impairment to this one is Ibrahim Aliheimer’s Disease, whose manifestations include insane urges on the part of individuals and fake ‘non-government’ organisations to abuse and threaten non-Muslims for imaginary alleged threats and insults to Islam, and for the regime to forget or refuse to admit that it funds these sectarian scum with public money.
Of course arguably the most fatal of BN’s congenital Alzheimer-related diseases, at least to those unfortunates who fall into the clutches of those who make it their business to spread it around, is Assassheimer’s.
A mania for killing those who pose a threat to the demented, domented, doughmented BN regime’s criminal members, as the hapless Mongolian ‘model’ Altantuya Shaariibuu did in the Scorpene Submarines affair, or have the misfortune to fall into the hands of its police or anti-corruption commission.
And of course the other effect of Assassheimer’s is to cause total amnesia among the killers, their accomplices and accessories before and after the fact of these crimes, not to mention an attorney-general’s department that long ago forgot its duty to prosecute them, and the promotion of as much memory-loss in the populace as possible by means of the lamebrain ‘mainstream’ media.
According to the Student News report mentioned above, the latest findings by the Regenerative Neuroscience Group at Sydney University’s Brain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI), while most if not all forms of dementia including Alzheimer’s are so far incurable, professionally-supervised “group-based brain training is effective at improving performance in a range of cognitive skills in healthy older adults”.
But, says Regenerative Neuroscience Group leader Associate Professor Michael Valenzuela, “commercial products promoted for solo training use at home just don’t work. There are better ways to spend your time and money.”
Unfortunately the professor didn’t mention whether going back to uni and straining one’s brain by writing essays about long-dead demented philosophers achieves anything in the senility-slowing department.
But if my experience with my latest efforts in this regard, there is a very fine line between productively exercising one’s mental faculties and utterly exhausting them.
Not that this has any particular relevance to all those millions of Malaysians who realise they’ve been out of their minds to have tolerated, let alone voted for or failed to vote against the demented, indeed outright deranged BN regime all these years.
That it’s way past time to get rid of this gang of criminal kleptomaniacs is a total no-brainer. But unfortunately BN-style domentia, doughmentia, Alcoheimer’s, Allaheimer’s, Ibrahim Aliheimer’s and Assassheimer’s are no more curable than ordinary dementia and Alzheimer’s.
So it’s high time the citizens of Malaysia got wise to the fact that they will never relieve themselves of their dead-head BN regime by thinking, wishing, hoping or otherwise using their brains, and started, people-power style, using their brawn.
