read Sham Rais's latest post. It's all about economy.
When you start paying taxes, then you'll know how frustrating it is to see how irresponsibly the money is being spent.
and politics, street protests are always somebody else's problem until you find the right reasons to do it yourself. jangan ingat mahathir tak pernah pegi demo ye... :)
Actually my last post was about discrimination on those overweight and big like me.
Are you suggesting me to lead a demo, and fight for those overweight? ahahahahaahahaa
it's a modern world...people dont do demonstrations...those demos are just made by fools, uneducated,and those far away from the term intellect!!!!
Mahathir may perform a demo before this...i dont know...maybe 40 to 50 years back?30 years?
But, what year are we in now?
i believe peoples mentality change from time to time and it is expanding.I may say my theory on people's mentality is quite the same as Charles Darwin theory.It evolves.
From my point of view, performing a demo nowadays denies the above theory.Maybe it works the other way round for certain people, from an intellect to a moron.
As for me,when it is my time pay my tax, i will do it with honor.
It is my time to give back to society, for what i have all along, 21 years of my life, is courtesy of taxpayers money
I even grow up using tax payers money, since my mum/our mum is a government servant.
I go to Sekolah Kebangsaan..a very beautiful school...courtesy of tax payers money
I went to boarding school (MRSM/MJSC) and pay rm1 per day for every 6 times meal i had is also courtesy of those tax payers
I further my higher education, taking the loan for my ACCA Qualification is also courtesy of tax payers money
The road i travel everyday...is courtesy from those tax payers money
The luxury life i have is courtesy of the taxpayers
I wont afford to buy my bujang house food and groceries if it wasnt because of those tax payers contribution
I got my education because of the taxpayers
Thanks to those taxpayers, i enjoy internet connection in my own house
If someday, i am employed by an international company like Intel, once again, i will thank those tax payers
I read lots and lots of stuff on the blog every hour, everyday.This includes mags and newspaper.
I admit, though i read a lot, i still have doubt on my knowledge on matters like economics, politics, social.I cant argue on the tax payers issue properly.I am not qualified. I admit most of my rebuttal points are based on logic,and even if i am able to argue with proves and strong points, i am 100 percent sure, people will come out with other facts to prove me wrong.Therefore, the debate will last forever.
i am confident if this continues, our close to 52 years of independence wont last for a century.Remember how Francis Light took over Penang?And how our land was taken over by British?
Every state was taken by British because of the fight among our own people.
I cant remember the whole story properly, because i left school along time ago..
Thanks to tax payers that i can afford to learn the history of Malaysian independence though maybe some of the people will say, "what is written in the text book is bias"
Thanks to those taxpayers that i even know the term bias...and all Malaysians who care about history know the term bias too.
Having said that, i admit, there are reasons to be disappointed.Corruptions are everywhere.
But,tell me,is there any, one organization that is not corrupt?
As long as there are humans alive in the organisation there will always be corruption.
It depends on how we see it.Major or Minor.
As for me, the term corruption is, whatever, things that violate our work ethics.Based on the term, those who spend their time surfing the net while working, i shall consider them as a corrupt too.Minor
Those who irresponsibly used the tax payers money for their own good..is also a corrupt.Major
But why did we people always see the negative side?The black spot smeared on a white cloth?
Say,If Samyvellu is a corrupt and he uses people's money for his own goods,as what many people have said. Take the statement above as an example.
Look at the bright side. He planned the construction of Bulatan Kampung Pandan.The most efficient roundabout in Kuala Lumpur,to avoid heavy traffics and it is for the use of Rakyat too.This is just one of his big project for the people and say,if from those projects, he collected mega million ringgit,let him be.He is just being smart.That is what business is.
Many other points i wish i could spill but i just cant I have to do more reading after this,to write better.
I'll go to MPH to buy some books.Once again, i will thanks the tax payers, if not because of them, i wont afford to go to Giant, using my proud National car, which was owned by my brother before this.
Having said that, again, thanks to those tax payers, for the road i use to go to Giant, the traffic lights along the way, the streetlights..the gas i used.
Will Giant exist if not because of the tax payers?Thanks again.
Sometimes i wonder, how did i turn up to be the best in what i did the best?
THOSE TAX PAYERS GAVE ME THE EDUCATION.....
so when it is my time to give back to the society..i wont hesitate.....
I rest my case :-)
