Reforming the ACA?

Yeah right!

Just look at the ACA investigations of the RM1.4million expenditure by the Youth and Sports Ministry while Azalina Othman Said was helming it.

Last Friday, the ACA issued a statemen tthat Azalina acted only as patron of the Women’s Sports and Fitness Foundation Malaysia, and was not involved in the expenditure matters of the foundation.

In a nutshell, the ACA has cleared Azalina of any wrongdoing or corrupt practices.

It said that it had checked all the related documents, and interviewed several staff of the foundation.

“On the RM1.4mil expenditure, the auditor had translated persembahan to entertainment, when persembahan in this context meant the opening and closing ceremonies of the National Women’s Games,” it said.

The Sun had reported that the foundation, in its annual report, stated that expenditure included Rr the M2.1mil for meals and accommodation, RM710,000 for printing and stationery, RM242,000 for volunteers’ allowances, RM1.4mil for entertainment and RM858,000 for travelling and transportation.

You know, nobody accused Azalina of corrupt practices. What's contentious is the National Sport Council approving of RM9.72 million foundation and another RM1.5 million by the ministry.

Get it?

And I hear that Azalina and the ACA boss are buddies.

It seems he had assured her that everything will be A-OK. And surprise, surprise, everything was!

And that, my friends, is reforming the ACA, Malaysian style....

Anwar Ibrahim For Prime Minister?

Only two (living) men deserve to be called great in Malaysia -- Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
You can't argue anymore on this.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is a hopeless case and should by now have retired, and enjoy bliss with ex-sister-in-law Jean who is his wife now.
TDM is great and you anti-Mahathir out there know that.
So is Anwar although I know those Anwar haters are trumping up charges that he is a CIA agent.

Anwar believes that he will be Malaysia's Prime Minister within four years. By September this year, Anwar thinks he can already form the federal government.

Wishful thinking or for real?

Some people are already looking at him as Malaysia's De Facto PM.

And where does Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Ser Najib Tun Razak figure in all this?

If Anwar makes good his threat, Najib should be somewhere far far away in a Greek far away as he can from Anwar who's gonna make him Ambassador for Mongolia.

Spoilt Little Boys Of Umno..

Old Man Dollah is beyond redemption. Beyond anything. He is so thick that not even a 10-inch needle can prick him. And what a dang prick he is!

Umno saboteurs indeed.

Well, that's what he said -- if Umno members themselves had not sabotaged the party, the Barisan Nasional would have won in 14 "white" (safe) constituencies. And BN would not have been denied its two-thirds majority.

Can you believe he actually said that loud and clear?

Folks, this man is unbelievable.

I am convinced Umno is an exclusive club for spoilt little boys -- who are deaf, dumb and blind.

Old Man Dollah's "revelation" is beyond the enial syndrome. It's so pathetic I wanna puke.

And you know what -- the party deserves to be whatever the boys want it to be -- a loser, of titanic proportion.

Umno does not deserve to be saved!

Shame, shame, shame on YOU!

Rockers and Republican

Away from Malaysian politics. Nothing to write about until Old Man Dollah hangs up his towel.

Poor thing. Poor soul. Doesn't he know that it's time. IT IS TIME.

The grave is getting deeper and deeper, Sir.

Anyway, let's talk about stuff in the US of A.

Apparently, a survey was done and the results have established a strong link between male rockers and the Republican vote.

But you have to be male and a Led Zeppelin fan. Then, chances are that you may be leaning toward voting Republican in the U.S. presidential election.

This is, according to a survey of rock radio fans released on Wednesday (April 2, 2008)

Well, I'll be!

Doggone it!

Here's part of the story:

The Jacobs Media's Media/Technology Web Poll IV of more than 27,000 respondents cited stronger than expected interest in the November 2008 election among fans of rock, classic rock, and alternative radio stations.

It also found that John McCain, the Republican candidate for U.S. president, was the top pick for the Oval Office for men and classic rock partisans -- those people who tune in to stations playing music from the "original classic rock era" of 1964 to 1975, comprised of bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who and Pink Floyd.

Jacobs Media said the survey, conducted among 69 U.S. rock-formatted stations in markets as diverse as Los Angeles and Knoxville to Buffalo, found 84 percent of the respondents planned to vote in the November election.

"People are clearly engaged by this election, even rockers. A lot of stations tend to shy away from politics because it's so polarizing, but this data suggests they'd better find a way to talk about politics this fall to keep listeners interested," said Fred Jacobs, president of Jacobs Media. He said the company threw the political questions in as an afterthought and was surprised by the results.

The survey was conducted in late February and early March.

They got this one right.

I'm a Led Zeppelin fan. But I'm female, I AM and you'de better believe it.

And that's why I'm no Republican. Thank God!
