"Bolehkah Dyana memberi reaksi jujur?" Apa kata Danil Daud

 Saya orang asli Wilayah Sabah iaitu sebuah wilayah independent yang menjadi salah satu Wilayah teras di antara empat Wilayah  dalam pembentukan sebuah negara daulat yang kita kenali sebagai negara Malaysia...

 Perlembagaan Persekutuan atau lebih tepat dirujuk sebagai " Perlembagaan Wilayah Malaya 1957 "  dan/atau  artikel 153 serta klausa klausa  yang terkandung didalamnya dan pindaan  seperti " hak istimewa indigenous Sabahan/Sarawakian yang  disogok pakai muat hanya selepas pembentukan Malaysia enam tahun kemudian  pada 1963...

 Persoalaan utama yang sepatutnya diutarakan  lebih setengah abad yang lalu... , Siapakah pemimpin / badan menerajui  pembikinan  draf dan pemeterai perundangan Perlembagaan Persekutuan 1957 yang meliputii yakni tongak perundangan keseluruhan wilayah Malaysia hari ini? Adakah wakil pemimpin Sabah/Sarawak terlibat sama?

 Jawaban pada soalan kedua adalah tentunya tidak kerana Sabah/Sarawak belum menyertai apa-apa perundingan pada masa Perlembagaan itu digubal dan Negara Malaysia belum wujud. Dalam hal demikian , apa yang dikenali sebagai Perlembagaan Persekutuan adalah tidak releven dan tidak significant pada penduduk  wilayah Sabah/Sarawak dan seharusnya di declare null & void setelah terbentuknya negara baru , Malaysia.

 Datuk Salleh Said , a prominent Sabahan and ex Chief Minister of the state  in his capacity as a state leader should set the records straight. Hence , denounce the significance of article 153 of the so called Federal Constitution and whatever relevance it has on the lives of both the people of Sabah/Sarawak. Going into confrontation with a Malayan politician over the matter doesn't denote the leadership quality of a genuine Bajau warrior such as the legendary Paduka Mat Salleh.
 What he should  rightly be doing ,  is to do a Ghapur Salleh on the Federal authorities by telling the Deputy Minister of home Affairs to go fly kites for the nincompoops irrational suggestion of wanting local Sabah tourist attractions to close shop as a resolute " hard thinking " government way to  prevent further abductions by the lawless AbuSayyaff bandits instead of compelling enforcement agencies to buck-up or pull out.

 Kembali kepada hudud ,The hudud and its decree. I will not dwell on race , simply because i conclude , to mention anyone's  race in Malaysia is malicious and filled with ill intent. Sabah/Sarawak known to live in harmony since time in memorial have had it , the racial bigotry spilling over the other side of the Peninsular fence.

 Notwithstanding religious or racist bigotry, The hotly debated hudud and the staunch penalties that follows.

On this particular subject i will stray away from the honorable late Karpal Singh...This is not solely about religious believes  per-Se and far from " the best of two worlds " normally associated with the Hypocrite Malay Malayan who wants to be seen and praised as pious but let out of the den , will be scavenging for cheap sex be it amongst their sub-ordinates or low down prostitutes.

These weasels , mainly Government or GLC employees away from Malaya where they pretend to be holier than thou show artists experiencing for the first time the moment they set foot in the east the free spirited ways of Sabah/Sarawak evolved to their true colours. There are so many witnesses to profess to this behavior and many more caught on candid camera performing the act , to prove a point. One of these low down skunk was the previous Sabah state POS Area Manager circa 1995 to 2002 who not only set a bad example and left a bad mark on Sabahans but also set a trend of having   free sex amongst his subordinates.

Hudud and its harsh laws should be seen as a deterrent rather than a punishment... and should be considered on grounds transgressing  the fundamental notion of  human liberty.. Besides human liberty is to do good not bad... The decrees found in hudud are not hostile to other faiths as most are inscribed in the holy bible as well as the torah. His Excellency The Sultan of Brunei , an absolute Monarch with all his might realized that he too is not above Gods law _ Danil Daud

Bolehkah Dyana memberi reaksi jujur?

Adalah tidak jujur untuk meminta sokongan pengundi tetapi enggan menyatakan pendirian sebenar mengenai isu-isu yang sensitif seperti Perkara 153, UiTM dan hudud.
Dyana SofyaOleh Salleh Said Keruak
Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) perlu kekal sebagai satu-satunya institusi Melayu, kata Pro Canselor Tan Sri Dr Abdul Rahman Arshad.
Tan Sri Dr Rahman mengulas gesaan calon DAP dalam pilihan raya kecil parlimen Teluk Intan Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud agar peluang samarata diberikan kepada semua untuk memasuki institusi pengajian tinggi awam di negara ini.

Justeru itu, Tan Sri Dr Rahman berhujah bahawa UiTM ditubuhkan berdasarkan peruntukan Perkara 153 Perlembagaan Persekutuan Malaysia dan seterusnya menekankan bahawa hak atau keistimewaan Bumiputera tidak harus dipersoalkan.
Jelas sekali, ini merupakan taktik DAP untuk meraih sokongan pengundi Cina yang kini berada di persimpangan jalan sama ada menyokong DAP atau Barisan Nasional (BN) pada pilihan raya kecil itu.

Bagaimanapun, strategi kempen yang menyentuh isu sensitif bakal mengundang risiko kerana kemungkinan ia akan merubah senario kepada persaingan Melayu lawan Cina atau bukan Melayu.
Sebelum ini, Dyana Sofya telah membuat kenyataan mengenai hudud — Undang-Undang Syariah Islam. Dalam kenyataan itu, Dyana Sofya menunjukkan dia menentang hudud kerana itulah pendirian parti yang diwakilinya.

Hari ini Dyana Sofya enggan mengulas mengenai perkara itu mungkin kerana menyedari komennya sebelum ini tidak memberi impak yang diharapkan.
Pilihan raya atau pilihan raya kecil merupakan platform dan peluang untuk calon-calon untuk menerangkan dasar dan ideologi parti mereka kepada pengundi.

Disinilah mereka memperjelaskan kepada pengundi tentang pendirian parti.
Mereka tidak sepatutnya memberitahu kepada pengundi “tidak mahu memberi komen” apabila ditanya tentang sesuatu perkara kerana ia bermakna mereka tidak bersifat terbuka dan menyembunyikan sesuatu perkara dari pengetahuan pengundi.

Jika DAP tidak bersetuju dengan peruntukan Perkara 153 dan UiTM sebagai sebuah institusi Melayu, dan menentang usaha PAS menggunapakai undang-undang Islam, maka ini perlu dinyatakan dengan jelas supaya pengundi akan tahu pendirian parti yang mereka undi.
Adalah tidak jujur bagi parti untuk meminta sokongan daripada pengundi tetapi enggan menyatakan pendirian sebenar mengenai isu-isu yang sensitif seperti Perkara 153, UiTM dan hudud.

I call it PEACE among enemies! Good example for humans.

I call it  PEACE among enemies!   Good example for humans.

For your enjoyment:
This is a video of a homeless man in Santa Barbara and his pets. They work State Street every week for donations.  The animals are pretty well fed and are mellow. They are a family. The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn't have to walk so much (like the dog and himself).   At some juncture the rat came along, and as no one wanted to eat anyone else, the rat started riding with the cat and, often, on the cat! 
The dog, will stand all day and let you talk to him and admire him for a few chin scratches. The Mayor of Santa Barbara filmed this clip and sent it out as a holiday card.

Bribing Voters Malaysian Style–An Example for the World


April 11, 2013

Watching Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak entertain BN supporters at the Stadium Putra in Bukit Jalil recently was like attending an orgy of greed and self-indulgence at a crooks’ convention. In what could be the final line-up of BN leaders before they disappear from public view, Najib’s last act encapsulated UMNO’s rule – corruption and abuse of power.
Najib and His Manifesto
His final attempt at wooing voters with cash handouts will corrupt the nation’s morals. Most leaders encourage their citizens to follow honest and hardworking paths in life, but not Najib. He is a feckless Prime Minister, a dishonourable Malaysian and a moral degenerate.
To cries of adulation, Najib announced various increases in handouts like the BR1M payment. He denied that these were “vote-buying” tactics. When he said that some payments would be given yearly, the crowd burst into a frenzy.
2 PMsFormer PM Mahathir Mohamad is allegedly the driving force for establishing the evils of corruption in Malaysian politics, but is Najib an evil conspirator or is he a victim, too?
Clearly, Najib attracts some sympathy. Son of a former Prime Minister, born into privileged Pahang society, a ladies’ man and a bon viveur, Najib wants for nothing and could have used his impressive lineage to help the rakyat.
At the launch of the BN manifesto, Najib charted his political ascent: “I started as a backbencher, then Deputy Minister, then Minister, Menteri Besar, Deputy Prime Minister, then PM. The principle of my struggle is that of loyalty to my superiors. I served under three prime ministers and was loyal to all. Was Anwar loyal? Definitely not.”
The untimely death of Najib’s father (n 1976), Abdul Razak Hussein, catapulted Najib into politics but few would be impressed by Najib’s lacklustre performance as a career politician. Ironically, Najib’s personal tragedy lies along the path that led him to wealth and power.
Despite his political pedigree, Najib cannot empathise with the rakyat. HisNajib other encounter with “normal” life, was a brief stint in the corporate world. He sees little of the rakyat’s suffering and has experienced few hardships in life.
One could always argue that Anwar has proved his loyalty to the rakyat. He dared to challenge Mahathir, but was punished: however, to what or whom is Najib loyal? Money, power or both?
The moment Najib started to milk the taxpayers’ money, he became a prisoner of the system. Our leaders are good at taking what does not belong to them.
Mahathir dispensed with transparency, accountability and responsibility. Cronies were encouraged to embrace a culture of entitlement. They are used to receiving something for nothing. Mahathir compromised our work ethics, our culture of honesty, sense of values, respect for the judiciary and the police, self-respect and respect for one another.
Offers of cash, with the promises of more, risk the nation’s finances. Who foots the bill? Will the crowd be euphoric when taxes are increased? Will they be jubilant when subsidies are reduced?
Corrupt leaders have studied and worked the system to their advantage. Their success is mainly due to our apathy and our inability to ask challenging questions. Politicians succeed because they are able to massage the greedy side of our human nature. Whilst we were engrossed with our RM500 BR1M payment, we overlooked the billions of ringgits acquired by politicians through commissions and land deals.
Subsidising the lifestyles of the corrupt
Why should we subsidise the lifestyles of corrupt politicians? They live off us like drug addicts consume drugs. Like drug addicts, they are not interested in stable employment or earning a decent living through an honest day’s work.
Najib is UMNO’s evil conspirator but he is not a victim, like us. Najib is trapped by his lifestyle and the vicious cycle of fame and debauchery. Neither he nor his peers feel they have done anything wrong. They believe that they are entitled to the culture of “something for nothing”.
Shahrizat A JalilShahrizat Abdul Jalil has shown no remorse for the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) scandal, whilst Taib Mahmud has expressed contempt for the MACC in investigating allegations of his corruption. Both Najib and his self-styled First Lady, Rosmah Mansor, have denied allegations of murder, corruption and excessive spending.
The tragedy of Najib is that he is unprincipled. He could have achieved greatness by being an able leader, by putting his nation first; before him or his wife. In times of crises, he invokes the memory of his father’s good deeds. He is just trying to hide behind his father’s laurels, like a child hiding behind his mother’s apron. In the end, he failed everyone, including himself.
Even Tok Mat (above) cannot be deceived
A few years ago, UMNO politicians boasted of being able to trounce the Opposition at the polls. The rhetoric gradually reduced to that of a hung Parliament. If people could be used as a barometer for despair, then Mahathir is one. He entered the fray, and warned Najib that if he did not perform, his deputy would take charge.
UMNO realised that their internal power struggles were turning the rakyat against them. They knew that a failure to win GE13, would signify an end to their political futures and personal freedom. They knew that if at any time one of them had fallen, they would all have been toppled, like a house of cards.
Saturday’s launch was an open show of bribery which shames everyone. UMNO knows it faces defeat at the polls, but it has gone past caring.
Anwar Ibrahim is not perfect and it would be facetious to claim that the Opposition parties are unblemished; however, only fools would be seduced by more lies that UMNO needs more time to reform.
Lest people forget, Anwar’s ill-treatment at Mahathir’s hand awakened a moral desire, in each of us, to be rid of racist and religious bigotry, and the desire to establish a just and equitable society. Even if Anwar could not continue with the struggle, the spark he lit has already ignited the embers of consciousness in most Malaysians.
