Say NO to shameless men

Everytime an opposition representative is being probed by MACC, it is a general rule of thumb that he would quit his party, continue serving as an independent representative and walla - he would be cleared from the said probe. I wonder what is the price of integrity and trust to turn one into a ‘traitor’ of his own people.

“Whenever a man has cast a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct” ~ Thomas Jefferson

In the case of one Mohd Radzhi Salleh, he quit his party but wishes to continue to hold his post as the state executive councillor. That sounds like a self-serving man to me, or maybe ‘syiok sendiri’ kind of guy, who thought he won the seat for his own principles and values.

“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Then, came along this one Johorean – the same kind of man – hinting that more PKR representative may quit. Well, I never know that he is such an analyst extraordinaire like Mr Wenger Khairy, to predict such ‘lompat si katak lompat’ acts.

Kalau tak ada serangga, masakan katak melompat’, isn’t that so? I bet he has been ‘propagating serangga’ to bait many more ‘kataks’ but not only ‘kataks’ eat ‘serangga’, other animals like birds, pangolin, echidna, armadillo, dragonfly, fish and even plants, too, eat ‘serangga’. So, I wonder why he and his men focus so much on ‘kataks’.

DSAI admits PKR is the weak link in PR coalition. Well, we all know that PKR is very much an UMNO splinter party - full of once sidelined UMNO goons – who breathe money to stay alive. “When they get worried, the money says let’s go baby”! Ahh, what do you expect from those people who grew up in dirty money politic environment? Maybe we need to use the ‘weedkiller’ to control such ‘lalang’ from outgrowing the crops.

“A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures - and that is the basis of all human morality” ~ Winston Churchill

Of ‘katak’ and ‘lalang’, now they have ‘buaya? Oh no! They say BN’s tainted candidate has a second wife but she hasn’t been given her rights as his wife for the past 8 years. Isn’t this another criterion of some UMNO goons – chauvinistic womanisers? So, you took a vow to care for her in the name of God and now you denied her place as one of your wives? I feel for his second wife’s emotional pain, which is beyond words. No woman deserves to be desecrated in such humiliating manner.

Despite having “Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat” since January 2001, women’s rightful status and rights are still being denied. Kak Jat, what say you? Oh, by the way Kak Jat, Auntie Madeleine Albright has this for you ~ “There’s a special place in hell for women who do not help other women”.

While we women are becoming more aware of our rights, more aspired to ‘reach for the stars’, the Government is still in the state of denial to assist us women. Why so? First stop, have a look at the composition of UMNO lawmakers in the cabinet!

I wonder what would be Fatwa Council’s stand on this matter. I am looking forward to their intelligent, well-thought response because we do not wish to see this degrading trend continues. Imagine this world, with too many women abandoned by their husbands. What more if they have children. What would happen to them?

“Women are systematically degraded by receiving the trivial attentions, which men think it manly to pay to the sex, when in fact, men are insulting, supporting their own superiority” ~ Mary Wollstonecraft

The same Johorean (danggg, what an embarassment), last week, said that he wanted to see more women in senior management position in corporate world. With these type of chavunistic men walking along the Corridor of Power, how could women climb up the corporate ladder? One who speaks her minds and exercises her rights are normally being ‘struck’ from the list as they would pose such great challenge to these type of insecured men. All they need is “Yes Man” type of women. For me, it is a disgrace and irresponsible act. Would you, women out there, ditch your principle for a room with a window? I rather have a clear conscience overlooking my little cubicle, baby!

Say NO to shameless men, say NO to UMNO.

Say YES to women’s power, say YES to better future.

For a start, let’s get the best man to win!

p.s. Being a lady is an attitude, being a lousy man is a destitute. So, I think!
