The hunt will have to start soon as I am getting almost too lethargic to even prowl around the blogs to keep myself updated with the latest happenings, let alone write about it.
Maybe when I am fully employed again will I be inspired to write more frequently here. Until then, I am going to discipline myself with just one posting a week.
The stories that stick to mind are:
1. Pak Lah's awakening 4 years too late
2. The spate of underworld-related killings that coincide with the abolishment of preventive laws that has been used to contain organised crimes activities
3. Continued abusive tones directed towards the police who are just doing their job in responding to police reports and their routine operations to uphold public order
The way I see it, Pak Lah's book is being published now because some people see this is the right time to undermine Najib as he is being seen at his most vulnerable now.
I reckon this is an opportune time for someone ambitious to take up the vacuum left by Najib should Umno decide to get rid of him.
To my thinking, publishing that book now is not really a good idea, and whoever thought that up can't be very clever, no matter what university/college he/she graduated from.
If that book gets distributed widely, it will be disastrous to people associated with Pak Lah's previous indiscretions, as it will simply remind people of those excesses that led to the whipping that BN got in 2008.
It will backfire big time to people associated with Pak Lah within Najib's administration and will be fodder for campaigning at the Umno General Assembly.
But who am I to say this, since I am a nobody and have repeatedly been called stupid here in my own blog, so just ignore me and do go on and publish that book.
As for the underworld-related killings, I think it is time that the police and the Home Ministry stop pandering to all these liberal leftists who are so gung-ho about demonising the police, slagging off the government and wanting to UBAH everything, including our constitution, our government system and even our flag.
They are just so self-absorbed in their own little "tempurungs", taking for granted all the preventive action taken by the police using those "outdated/outmoded" laws to keep the streets as safe as they possibly could without restricting public freedom, and make such hue and cry to abolish those very laws.
They are all out to protect the rights of criminals against "police brutality" as part of their "demonise the authorities propaganda" that makes people so absorbed in their petty little grievances against the authorities that they don't realise or care that these preventive laws were what had been keeping in check the menace of these gangsters and crime-lords on the streets.
Now that these lowlifes are loose on the streets, they are shouting that the police are not doing their jobs.
Some of them slagging off the police may look beautiful and seem articulate on the outside, but they are truly ugly, intellectually-deficient hypocrites on the inside.
