To Save Bolehland, dUMNo Needs To Be Voted Out!

Bolehlanders are actually very, very sick and tired of the circus embroiled as it is in allegations of corrupt and opaque dealings in 1MDB with no end in sight to the whole sordid affair.

No one is taking responsibility for the 1MDB mess while long suffering Bolehlanders are forced to bear the indignity and pain of having to pay punitive consumption tax that has not only made lives difficult for everyone, except for the rich and politically connected, but has also dampened businesses across all areas.

Too many bad things have happened that those who are concerned about where the nation is heading to can no longer ignore them if they don't want to see the country going to the dogs and becoming a failed state like Zimbabwe where just to buy a loaf of bread it is said that you will have to carry a basket-load of banana currency.

Bolehland has not come to that state yet, but if the rakyat remain indifferent to what is happening and think that  they can just sit back and observe the circus without doing anything because the nightmare will come to an end by itself, they are only deceiving themselves and inviting disaster upon their fate.

That is why Mahathir's 'People's Declaration' seeking for the Pm to step down is grossly missing the point. Not only should it call for the Pm to step aside, but the declaration should also press for a snap general election to be called to enable the people to decide whether they want to continue with the miserable status quo - and the prospect of worse - or to vote for a clean new start by voting in a change of government.

Mahathir is only interested in Najib stepping down but dUMNo remaining in power. That won't do.

dUMNo is so long hobbled with its politics of patronage, race, religion and entitlement, and ossified in its ways, that no matter who takes over the leadership he will not be able to bring about any meaningful change and it will be more of the same old, same old.

Except that this time around, the same old, same old will probably see the end of Bolehland as a nation worth talking about.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
