Snap Sabah election decided by whatsApp, twitter, instagram, similar social media

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

Biden has run out of gas. He was in public service for 48 years and has lost interest. What can he do in four years which he couldn’t do in 48 years?

Not everyone can be like Mahathir, 95. Mahathir started late in life.

Generally, people in Kerala are still up and about at even 100+.

Trump came to politics even later than Mahathir. So, he’s still very interested, very energetic. He practically lives on McD.

In Malaysia, most people run out of gas by 50. They just drag themselves to work until 60 and then collapse.

By 65, five years after they retire, they are gone. The health deteriorates when there’s nothing to do.

Most people find it difficult to keep going after retirement. There’s nothing to keep them interested.

In that case, they should join an NGO. That can be the basis to stand as Independent in the GE.

Belum cuba, belum tahu.

Working until 60 and then retiring is not the be all and end all of life.

It’s better to work until YouKnowWhat. You might even surprise yourself.

@camanpour , @jchatterleyCNN , @donlemon , @wolfblitzer , @drsanjaygupta, @richardquest, @donaldtrump, @realDonaldTrump, @POTUS, @rosemaryCNN , @richardquest if you catch the virus, whose fault is it? The onus is on you to protect yourself. The pandemic has to be handled at a personal level. Make sure the virus has no place to go and dies out.

It’s surprising that there’s a sudden spike in virus cases in Sabah especially in the Lahad Datu region.

Hopefully, it will not deter a good turnout on Sept 26.

The snap Sabah election will be decided by whatsApp, twitter, instagram and similar social media.

The gov’t party failed to win the Kimanis parliamentary by-election because of social media, especially whatsApp.

The media, surveys and even FB can no longer dictate how people should vote. The media has no credibility.

The US presidential election is a case in point. Trump continues to maintain core support as in 2016 despite whatever the media, especially the hysterical CNN, throws at him.

Many of the independents in the fray in Sabah are not about winning or losing but getting a hearing on matters of public concern and public interest.

The parties will be forced to respond.

Politics is clearly about public perceptions.

All politics are about restructuring the distribution of power and restructuring the distribution of revenue and resources.

The snap Sabah election is a toss between local parties especially those not linked to the parti parti Malaya in Borneo.

PAS, which declared it was contesting ten seats, pulled out after not being given any seats by Perikatan Nasional (PN) and BN (Barisan Nasional). There was no sign of Muafakat Nasional (MN).

The social media has gone ballistic on several statements attributed to PAS.

These include: the Holy Bible, the Word of God, has been manipulated; Sarawak is about Dayak with the sirat and cawat mindset; those who don’t vote for PAS will not go to heaven; the Orang Asal, like the Orang Asli in Malaya, must be converted to Islam; don’t allow non-Muslim to rule Sabah and Sarawak; and corruption is not a sin in Islam.

Virus will help brightest and best, the disciplined, prevail over riff-raff, indeed inbred, squatting on the former.
