Grave strategic error to shut down economy to keep lid on hospitalisations

Listen to soft instrumental music for 15 to 20 mins before bed to calm the emotions and have a restful night . . .

Putrajaya will kill AirAsia for good if it doesn’t heed IATA’s call.

Change comes but seldom, and when it comes, it’s sudden.

The more things appear to change, the more they remain the same.

A body at rest tends to stay at rest, unless acted upon by external forces.

A body in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted upon by external forces.

Everything is connected to everything else . . . the past, present, the future. The present was made in the past, the future is being made today.

It was grave strategic error to shut down the economy to keep a lid on hospitalisations.

It would have been more prudent to keep a lid on the novel Corona virus cases while keeping the economy open. The economic stimulus packages, based on future incomes and the generations unborn, were sheer waste of money.

The fate of AirAsia will give the strongest clue on which way the economy is headed. It doesn’t look too good.

It’s only a matter of time before the people wake up and realise what has actually been going on since late Feb. Malays in particular will be hard hit as the gov’t has foisted the dependency syndrome on them since Merdeka.

Malays have to get over their addiction to politics. Politics is not the be all and end all of life.

Their tendency to refer to others as pendatang must end. Those who stay in glass houses should not throw stones.

History cannot be based on collective amnesia driven by taqiyya (deliberately lying) and kitman (lying by omission) to advance the “cause of Islam”.

Islam is about sin, not law.

To add insult to injury, a PAS lawmaker defiled the sanctity of Parliament by claiming that the Holy Bible, the Word of God, has been manipulated.

The rule of law is the basis of the Constitution. Religion doesn’t enter the picture.

Lawmakers are sworn to uphold, respect, honour and defend the Constitution.

There’s no end to Melayu, Melayu, Melayu and Islam, Islam, Islam bla bla bla in Parliament.

What kind of delusion is this? There’s no end to it in Malaya.

There’s no Malay race in the world. Read the 2nd Prong of the Definition of Malay in Article 160(2). The 1st Prong refers solely to the 2nd Prong.

Malay is a form of identity, not race. There’s case law on this.

Mahathir, for example, is Malay by IDENTITY, Indian by RACE.

Not every Tom, Dick and Harry can be Malay. Read the 2nd Prong.

The Definition of Malay in Article 160(2) is inherently null and void since the 1st Prong contradicts the 2nd Prong.

The Definition is an artificial construct, an aberration in law, bad law, it doesn’t exist in law, it ceased to exist if it did, as if it never existed.

The 2nd Prong implies the Definition is not race but a form of Identity for certain Muslims.

The 1st Prong contradicts the 2nd Prong by referring to Malay culture, customs and traditions. How can a group which is not race be linked with so-called Malay culture, customs and traditions?

Again, Mahathir, for example, is Indian by race. He’s only Malay by Identity under the Definition.

There’s case law, a bundle of contradictions, on the Definition.

While concedeing that Malay in the Definition is not race, the case law states that Malay is anthropology.

If so, Islam should not be mentioned. Islam came from outside the Archipelago and the Indian subcontinent, for example, and has nothing to do with the anthropology of the said two regions, for example.

Malay reservation in Malaya is misnomer for gov’t reservation land created by the British colonialists by gazette on Orang Asli land.

Such land is untitled and should be returned to the Orang Asli. They can be degazetted.

The British created the reservation land to remove various Muslim communities from places where they wanted to plant rubber and mine tin.

The rotten politics in Putrajaya has to come to an end. Otherwise, the Federal gov’t is headed towards bankruptcy which will compel the IMF, World Bank, the UN Security Council and probably the treasuries of the US, Japan, India, China and Singapore.

To add further insult to injury, the Federal gov’t has been in non-compliance on the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), the basis for Sabah and Sarawak in Malaysia with Malaya as Equal Partners.

Malaysia is not Federation but Partnership.

Malaya is Federation as per Article 160 under The Federation of Malaya Agreement 1948, reinforced by the Federation of Malaya Independence Act 1957.

On 16 Sept 1963, Malaya changed its name to Malaysia as per MA63. This is a contradiction in terms.

Malaya should have kept its name.

The Philippines should pursue the Sabah claim at the ICJ, an advisory body for the UN, so that Malaysia’s sovereignty over Sabah can be settled.

Only nation-states can go to the ICJ.

The Madrid Protocols between Spain, UK and Germany in the 1800s held that the Sulu Sultanate died out when the last Sultan did not leave a male heir.

There are over 60+ claimants to the Sulu sultanship.

Manila recognised one. He transferred sovereignty over Sabah to the Philippines gov’t as only nation-states can pursue sovereignty issues.

‘Moment of Truth’ for Sabah, Sarawak on Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), Malaya kicks can further down the road.

No MA63, no Malaysia . . . MA63 basis for Sabah and Sarawak to be in Malaysia with Malaya as Equal Partners.

The man in the street in Malaya does not think Sabah and Sarawak are in Malaysia.
