bodoh cina + cina bodoh!!!

Dato Dr. Tan Tiong Hong’s reply on additional Empat Ekor draw most ‘unsatisfactory’
Press Statement by Parliamentary Opposition Leader, DAP Secretary-General and MP for Kota Melaka, Lim Kit Siang, in Petaling Jaya on Tuesday, l6.7.l985:

Tan Tiong Hong’s reply on additional Empat Ekor draw most ‘unsatisfactory’
The reply by the Deputy Finance Minister, Datuk Dr. Tan Tiong Hong, in Parliament to questions as to why the government approved an additional weekly draw on Thursday for Magnum Corporation’s Empat Nombar Ekor from twice to thrice weekly is most unsatisfactory.
It was most unfortunate that my DAP comrades and I were not given the opportunity to put supplementary questions to Datuk Dr. Tan to expose the hollowness of his reasons.
Datuk Dr. Tan told Parliament that the additional weekly Thursday draw was to reduce orcheck the illegal Empat Ekor syndicates. This is utter rubbish, for what the governmenthas done is the opposite, in encouraging the increase in activities of illegal Empat Ekorsyndicates from twice a week to three times a week. The other reason give by Datuk Dr. Tanthat the increase was to give the people more opportunities to have the chance to buy Empat Ekorto ‘strike’ the numbers they want is even more ridiculous, for by this reasoning, there should beEmpat Ekor draw every day, or even better, twice a day to give the people more chance to‘pursue’ the number they want. Datuk Dr. Tan and the Barisan Nasional government hadcompletely ignored the fact that at a period of great economic hardship, when moneyis tight, the additional Empat Ekor draw a week would have the adverse effect of wiping outthe hard-earned money of the people. No wonder shopkeepers and businessmen are finding times unbearably hard. The only beneficiary is Magnum Corporation, and its parent company, theMulti-Purpose Holdings whose share price yesterday was the all-time low of 84% cents when it wasone time boosted as worth $9 or $10 a share! Is this the MPH’s secret weapon to try to jack up its price?
Datuk Dr. Tan should tell Malaysians how much revenue the Government expects to get from the additional Empat Ekor draw a week, and what is the expected additional profits toMagnum Corporation and Multi-Purpose Holdings from such additional draw. Has the Malaysian economy become so bad that the government must encourage the people to gamble in order toget more revenue?
All the monies gained by the government and Magnum Corporation and Multi-Purpose Corporationwill be at the expense and hardship of the people, and clearly is not only against the national interest,but directly against the whole spirit of the government’s Islamisation programme to instil moral valuesin our society.
The MCA is becoming the gamblers’ party, whose leaders are not only gambling away thepeople’s rights and interest, but want the people to gamble away their money as well.It is significant that both Neo Yee Pan and Tan Koon Swan MCA factions have not dared totake a public stand to call on government to cancel the additional Thursday draw for Empat Ekor,which shows that both factions are no different when it comes to the peoples basic issues!
Labuan as a bunkering station for US naval vessels and as possible replacement for US base at Subic Bay in Phlippines?
I wish to clarify some newspaper reports that the Deputy Defence Minister, Datuk Abang Abu Bakar had, in his reply to my supplementary question, denied that Labuan would become a bunkering stationfor US vessels and possible replacement for Subic Bay in Phillipines for US navy in future.
I had asked whether the proposed submarine-building programme of Sabah Shipyard Sdn Bhdhad any connection with the proposal to convert Pulau Kraman in Labuan as a bunkering stationfor US Navy, and as a possible replacement for the US Naval base in Subic Bay in the Philippinesshould the US had to withdraw from the Philippines. All that Datuk Abang Abu Bakar said was ‘the question does not arise’ – which could mean either there is truth or no truth in the connection.The Defence Ministry should come out with a clear-cut statement on this question!

Dato Dr. Tan is my personal friend, we met quite often in Singapore to discuss business deals few years ago and we did travel to China to explore business opportunities. I like being with this former MCA MP cum deputy Minister for his gentlemanliness, humility and mildness; his great ideas always inspire me. To me, Dato Dr. Tan is truly a scholar, thinker, successful businessman and a man of integrity! Anyway, this article has nothing to do with Dato Dr. Tan.
I read the above press release by Mr. Lim Kit Siang in 1985 a week ago, I can't help but feel prompted to write something about the gambling issues in Malaysia.
1. I challenged UMNO to uphold Islamic teachings to completely ban gambling in Malaysia, I even wrote to Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to clamp down on ALL gambling activities in Malaysia.
2. I wrote an open letter to DAP last year to urge DAP to support the closure of casino, 4-D, ToTo, horse-racing operations in Malaysia as I suspect them of being Umno's "lackey" to legally suck non-Muslims as well as some bodoh Muslims hard-earned money in our country.
3. I explained how these gambling monies have been used by Umno/BN to manipulate the rakyat.
4. I further explained that the support for gambling by non-Muslim political parties like MCA, DAP, Gerakan are perceived as anti-Islam by many Malays (though many Malays like to buy 4-D and ToTo!)
5. When Umno has to explain to Malays about the legalization of gambling in Malaysia, they accuse Chinese of being inveterate gamblers -"Chinese addiction for gambling is beyond redemption, if they don't gamble, they will DIE, so we Umno has to respect human rights and give in to this unreasonable/unIslamic demand. And Chinese are so happy to gratefully and graciously accept this "compliment"; for too long MCA and Chinese of unsound mind have been hysterically barking at PAS: GIVE ME GAMBLING OR GIVE ME DEATH...
6. Chinese can bow down before Umno and beg them: Please prostitute my wife and daughters, enslave my sons, I am willing to pawn my children education and healthcare, but please please don't close casino, 4-D, ToTo, Horse-Racing for they are my hope, my joy and my future...
7. The Chinese bow down before Umno and say:"please please don't close casino, 4-D, ToTo and Horse-Racing for we will wholeheartedly make sure that PAS won't disturb you (at least politically)".
8. So it is not uncommon to hear from Chinese prostitutes in KL that: "my parents are addicted to gambling and accumulate huge gambling debts so I have prostitute myself to help family alleviate the financial woes"... and it's true sometimes!
9. And if you ask the young Chinese boys who drop-out of school and sell pirated DVD in JB why they want to sell pirated DVDs, they may tell you: "my father is addicted to gambling so I have leave school to fend for myself"!
10. Both the prostitutes and pirated DVD sellers could also be addicted to gambling...
11. Umno appoints "Chinese gambling operators" to use the Chinese to betray the Chinese, and Chinese Malaysians are so proud of Mr. Vivi Tan and Lim Kok Kok (not their real names) for they think these 2 persons are the proud of Chinese community in Malaysia.
12. Umno controls the gambling business behind the curtains, collects the taxes and uses the monies to suppress, opprress and depress Malaysians! It is without doubt that those Chinese who frequent the legal gambling den end up being depressed financially and politically...
13. This bodoh cina political party called Bodoh MCA (BMCA) has the audacity for telling bodoh cina that: "Bodoh MCA will fight till the last drop of its blood to defend the "gambling right" of Chinese in Malaysia", some bodoh Chinese become extremely grateful and even tearful for MCA great sacrifice ...
14. For Chinese are so fearful of "meaningless life without gambling" in Malaysia, Umno-controlled government successfully takes advantage of this phobia and manipulates the Chinese electorate.
15. Chinese Malaysians are said to gamble away approximately RM6-8 billion in a year (imagine how many hospitals and world-class universities can be built with these money)!!
16. Bodoh cina accuses me of "anti-cina" when I propose the closure of Casino, ToTo, 4-D and Horse-Racing and they ask me a lagi bodoh question: "What happen if they go underground"...
17. Umno operates "legal gambling" activities, 2 other organizations known as PDRJ and BMR jointly operate underground 4-D, horse-racing and football "games"...they even have a mobile bank called Bank Ah-Long to grow their business exponentially!
18. Back to point 16, "if bodoh cina are not crazy about gambling, how can they go underground, open-ground, or above-ground"???
19. Back to point 16, I wrote to our former PM Tun Abduallah Ahamad Badawi who is a pious and faithful Muslim to propose to him about using "Lucky Draw" to replace "gambling"...
20. There will be 3 proposed types of "Lucky Draws" to replace "gambling" in Malaysia:
a). Education Lucky Draw:
This Lucky Draw Ticket is RM2 and we will conduct it 3 times a week, winners will get RM2 million to RM1 thousand worth of "Education Prize" and these prizes are transferrable and can only used for education fees payment, all the profits generated from "Education Lucky Draw" will fully be used to assist poor and needy students regardless of race and religion. I asked our former PM to arrange a meeting with Minister of Education to discuss it, however, there was no reply.
b). Healthcare and Family Lucky Draw:
Similar to "Education Lucky Draw", but I was not able to secure a meeting with PM and Health Minister to submit my proposal. (In my letter, I made a promise to former PM that if we were to implement Healthcare & Family Lucky Draw in Malaysia, poor and needy Malaysians won't be deprived of basic shelter and world-class healthcare services).
c). Infrastructure Lucky Draw:
Winners get free highway access cards (RM10,000 -RM50). All the proceeds will be channeled for building infrastructures in Malaysia. Highway toll will be gradually reduced and eventually owned by access is NOT a dream!
21. Those who can arrange a meeting for me with Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak or Nik Aziz, please let me know and I will let them read my proposal...
22. I can guarantee that if our government adopts my proposal, we can curb gambling more effectively, and the more Malaysians who support "Lucky Draw" the more prosperous our country is going to be and the less social issues we are going to have...
Anyway, we have too many bodoh cina+ cina bodoh among us... the existing policy on gambling won't be changed because of bodoh cina!!!
please stay-tuned for bodoh indian+ indian bodoh next week...

UMNO wants Malays to hate Singapore...

Last year when I wrote an article which mentioned about the Malays living in abject povertly and sordid condition in Batam, Bintan and Karimun, Indonesian islands which are less 60 nautical miles from Singapore--a country which UMNO hates so much ostensibly for the alleged marginalization of Malays in Singapore. I urge UMNO to look at the more serious problems faced by Malays in Indonesia like child prostitution, child labor, deprivation of food and shelter, the lack of basic education opportunities for deserving Indonesian children, etc. I also invited UMNO to study the root cause of the problems faced by Malays in Indonesia instead of hysterically barking like a dog at Singapore for allegedly marginalizing its Malay citizens.
I am going to tell UMNO that there is no need for them to worry about the Malays in Singapore for the following reasons:

1. Education Opportunities: Malays don't have to pay school fees in Singapore, Chinese and Indians have to, no quota imposed on Malays for “excelling” in their studies. If Umno is still not happy, they can always set up mediocre universities to accommodate them, thus, making Singapore government speechless!! Let’s set a general test in English, Science and Mathematics to find out whether Singaporean Malays can outperform Indonesian Malays, Malaysian Malays, Brunei Malays…Let’s make a wager!
The competition for citing Quran is surely won by Indonesian Malays…

2. Employment Opportunities in Government Sector: If candidates of same qualities in education, experience, ect, priorities will be given to minorities. (Since Umno is so crazy about the Malays’ well-being in Singapore, I can appoint a research team to prove that the number of Malays in Singapore government sector is in higher proportion -- (Malays constitute 8% of Singapore total population, but they constitute about 28% in government sector- meaning out of 100 civil servants, 28 are Malays!! Mahathir should inspect Singapore Police Force, Civil Defence, Checkpoints and Immigration Authority and see for himself how Malays are being hired there).

3. Employment Opportunities in private sector: Yes, there could be discrimination in private sectors because the requirement to use Chinese language when dealing with China and due to other reasons they’re more hesitant to hire Malays as good Malays candidates are already taken by government sector.
Solutions: Umno-controlled companies in Singapore like CIMB, Maybank, Sime-Darby, etc, can apply a straightforward approach of “blindly hire” all Malays so as to fulfil the Mahathir’s “Saving Malays in Singapore Mission”.
4. Religion: Singapore has ample number of Mosques for Muslims, however, they can’t fix their Mosques’ speaker outward and turn the volume up to the max; probably the Malays in Singapore have no hearing problem. One issue that concerns me is that the Spore government doesn’t allow government schools (primary and secondary) Muslim students to wear tudung, this is undemocratic! And Karpal Singh of Malaysia’s DAP has long lambasted it as ridiculous and was willing to assist a Singapore Muslim to challenge the tudung-ban at Singapore court. Umno should condemn Singapore for not allowing Muslim students to wear tudung in primary and secondary schools, Umno should also condemn Turkey for not allowing Muslims to wear tudung in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions!! Tertiary institutions in Singapore don’t have such ban….
5. Home ownership: 98% of Malay families in Singapore own a government housing unit. (while many Malays in Indonesia and Malaysia are still homeless)!!

I even emailed Dr. Mahathir and challenged him for a debate on "The alleged marginalization of Malays in Singapore in comparison with the destiny of Malays in the failed state of Indonesia", but Dr. Mahathir was too powerful to respond to a small fly like me…
Umno is likening the fate of Malays in Penang to the “miserable” state of Malays in Singapore and Mahathir accused Singapore or more specifically Lee Kuan Yew of being Anti-Malay, Umno and Mahathir want Singapore to give its Malay citizens the following special privileges like:
a). APs (Approved Permits): all the cars imported to Singapore must be through Malay-controlled companies so they can get rich more quickly;
b).Contracts: all projects in Singapore must be handled by Malay-controlled companies so they can inflate the construction cost and become overnight miilionaire, no legal action can be taken against them if they fail to deliver because they have special privileges;
d). Government Posts: Malays must be made Prime Minister and fill up all the ministerial posts in Singapore government cabinet even if he/she doesn’t have the qualities to manage a city-state where there is ZERO resources!
As mentioned in Point d, Singapore doesn’t have natural resources and therefore the government doesn’t have the luxury of wastage of public fund either; good governance and corruption-free are the 2 main elements for Singapore success. Imagine again running Singapore the “Umno way” and install the policy of “Malay-First, Country Last”, in no time, all the Singaporeans (including Malays) would have to prostitute themselves to feed their families like many pretty Batam girls do (apart from selling their body, I don’t know what else Singapore can offer to sell – u find any resources there??)… the only resource Singapore has is human resource=human capital, using your brains to generate wealth. Umno doesn’t believe in using brains, because UMNO=Ur Mind Not Okay. Understand?!
Thanks God! Malaysia is endowed with abundant natural resources, ideal number of populations and a group of hard working Chinese entrepreneurs to sustain the economy, if not, our girls would long have been maids and prostitutes like our Indonesia counterparts.
Ur Mind Not Okay…

Umno loves Indonesia...please come and make our country yours!

Please read the article below by Tunku Abdul Aziz:
Indonesia, we are not your whipping boy
The Javanese have done it again. They have burned our national flag.
Many years ago, I was interviewed in London by BBC Radio 2 as part of a series on the great languages of the world. I was asked about some significant differences between Bahasa Indonesia and our own Bahasa Melayu. I feigned ignorance about the existence of a language called Bahasa Indonesia. I said what Indonesia claimed as its language is really Bahasa Melayu.
They had no choice but to use Bahasa Melayu, the lingua franca of the Malay world to communicate among themselves because they never had a common language to begin with. Malay is undoubtedly the basis of their language. So, if we do what they in Indonesia do so well, we should be burning their flag every day because they have purloined our national language.
An excessive display of nationalistic zeal is generally considered "ugly" in civilised societies. The Indonesians by their actions have reduced themselves into sad figures of ridicule and fun. Their claim, and not for the first time, that we have infringed their "cultural copyrights" is totally absurd. They now have got it into their heads that we should stop singing our national anthem because the tune was Indonesian. What else next? Stop eating satay and wearing kain batik because these are Indonesian?
I remember the time when Indonesia took it upon themselves to rename the Indian Ocean as the Indonesian Ocean, and had the new name put on their official map. The Indians demurred, and Sukarno the regional bully boy realised that it was not such a clever thing to do after all.
Last year we had Wahyu Susilo of Migrant Care, an influential labour organisation telling us "We also want Malaysia to legalise illegal workers and not simply deport them home." Then, again last year we were reminded by Indonesian lawmakers that Malaysia-Indonesia relations were "at their worst since Sukarno's days of Konfrontasi in the sixties."
The reference to Konfrontasi is mischievous in the circumstances. It was a attempt to stampede us into submitting to their will. Indonesians should want to forget that disastrously miscalculated adventure which ended with a bloody nose for their country. On the positive side, it brought to an end the reign of the megalomaniac Sukarno only to be replaced by the rapacious Suharto. Perhaps we had a match in our own country, and we should not gloat over it too much. As a matter of interest, even the normally calm and staid Najib when Deputy Prime Minister was moved to refer to Malaysia as the "Whipping Boy" of the Indonesian media whenever they felt they had a grievance, real or imagined, against us.
I mention all this as a way of reminding ourselves that history provides important lessons for us all. Patterns of political behaviour are often deeply entrenched in the consciousness of a nation, and in the case of our big and unwieldy neighbour, this phenomenon is more marked than is good for them. We want to continue to maintain good neighbour relations with Indonesia, but Indonesia must remember that we are not a client state, and there is a limit to how far we are prepared to go to be nice. We have to think about protecting our national security interests and not putting them at risk. After all, our responsibility is to our own people, first and last.
I recall vividly the burning of our flag in 2002 in Jakarta, that very violent capital of Indonesia. Dr. Mahathir, the then Prime Minister responded in a statesman-like manner to the crude officially orchestrated provocation in which the petulant Speaker of the People's Consultative Council, Amein Rais played a big role. So, in the most recent incident, we were yet again treated to a pattern of behaviour that seems to have been well integrated into the great Indonesian cultural psyche, and that is part of their culture they can keep without any fear of copyright infringement by Malaysia.
It is obviously difficult for us to engage such a volatile country without causing offence and endless misunderstandings, but we must show patience and wisdom and do all we can to keep the relations on an even keel. Indonesia is still a country in transition and has yet to find its own realistic level in international relations. It seems to lack the confidence of a potentially rich and credible nation, and therefore occupies its time in the luxury of blaming others when things do not go their way. I suppose they will now want to take back all their nearly two million nationals, both legal and mostly illegal, working hard, and robbing hard, to keep body and soul together.
We are not your whipping boy. Grow up Indonesia!
You and I are aware of that for the sake of further strengthening Malays numerical superiority in Malaysia, those people in Umno who have the streak of recklessness have began their seemingly unselfish policy of "freely" giving citizenship to largely unskilled/uneducated workers from Indonesia, and if you compare the citizenships granted to Chinese and Indians in 1955., there were only 1 million in total. Nevertheless, since 1955, at least 6 million Indonesian have been granted citizenships, Khir Toyo's father only came to Malaysia in 1940s (FYI, as a peranakan, my ancestors came to Melaka in 1780s, almost 300 years earlier than Mahathir's Indian father).
I personally have no problem with granting citizenship to Indonesians as our country is doing so to provide a better future for their children and our country can become their "Promised Land", however, what I can't tolerate is that even after they've become "imported" bumiputras, they are still supporting "Indonesia team" and some of them even booed Malaysia team in our National Stadium in 1992 Thomas Cup badminton final between Indonesia and Malaysia!
I am writing to Umno to consider "import" Malays from Fiji, South Africa, Christmas Island, the Philippines because these Indonesia immigrants are not grateful and mudah lupa (easily forget)...they've come to this country to be immediately upgraded to "BUMIPUTRA"- (the prince of the soil) whereas in Indonesia they could be the most insignificant "the dust of soil". As "IMPORTED" Bumiputra, they are given the fair opportunity to openly share my 100% local-born pure Malay Bumiputra neighbours' rights and privileges, no wonder my 100% pure Malay Bumiputra neighbours are complaining that they're getting lesser and lesser... and now Umno, being the most cunning, points their dirty middle finger at Chinese Malaysians and accuses them of "stealing" too much so Bumiputra are still getting lesser and lesser, without realizing that Chinese have been the main contributors towards economic stability so much so Umno can attract "imported" bumiputra to come to this country...
Hello Umno, why not ship in another 30 million "imported" bumiputras from Indonesia, and see for yourself who are actually stealing your wealth? And see for yourself 30 years down the road what kind of Malaysia you will get...
Or merge with Indonesia then you can have at least 99% all-Muslims constituencies and finally put all the historical mistakes behind and realize the great dream of "MALAY UNITED KINGDOM"?? And see for yourself how much the Indonesians will respect the Sultans....
If Malaysia will be better off, JUST DO IT!
Do blame me if your daughters have to be maid in Singapore...
