Unmitigated corruptions pull us down

Corruption is heinous and it is the number one menace to mankind. Corruption has caused tragedy to governments and had thrown numerous numbers of nations and civilizations into oblivion.

Corruption runs in parallel with abuse of power as corruptors can only survive with persons with power and within their close cronies adjoining and surrounding them.

No nation can progress and survive in perpetuity once corruptions and abuse of power manage the system of government and so do for any organization with business entity and social as well as charitable organization of noble intentions.

A corrupted person does not have worthy of human value and that is why a corruptor is looked down especially in advance nations. Over there corruptors would be dishonored for life.

Conversely in Malaysia we can see with our bare and naked eyes that corruptors are bestowed with high and impeccable decorations and recognitions and being respected by the neighborhood and society they live in.

A leader in modern country who is found or just being perceived to be corrupted, will end up their lives in moral destitute and impoverishment, as the whole nation’s community will distrust them for life.

As Miguel de Cervantes, a Spanish Novelist, dramatist and poet used to say, “A man dishonored is worse than dead.”

Corruption is the main concern of our people here as it has painted an ugly facet of our elected government and this contamination seems to be contagiously spreading like wild fire as if there is no more hope for possible remedy to this pain in our neck.

There are many outstanding cases which are not attended to and being concealed from people by the authority as those involved are personalities with big pips and decorations.

For us here in Malaysia, personality within this kind of category is given exception and they own immunity from any legal address on them. Conviction is only meant for you and me.

Rais Yatim, then the Minister who took charge of Law once told the press that there were 18 high profile cases in the pipe line to be taken action with, but none of those has surfaced so far and it is another sore point of the rakyat.

What happen to all those 18 high profile cases as the tax payers seriously want to know where the taxes money they paid to the government have gone to and it is certain the amount is not small but hefty.

The leadership seems to be afraid of the corruptors than fearing the people agitations for their own political voracity and in the meanwhile tax payer’s money is ever draining into the pockets and bank accounts of the corruptors locally and abroad.

They have money changers to remit the loots into their personal account or of the cronies in London, Paris, New York and Hong Kong.

Recently we could hear money being transmitted through Dubai to facilitate shopping spree for some one influential…also trough money changer.

Of late we have been watching the highlights of the MACC almost daily but it has not brought any big corruptor to the court other than the bilis and the kembongs and it is now being apparent that convictions is only meant for the small, trivial and petty corruptors.

With the apprehension of the leadership and authority in settling the 18 high profile cases as admitted by Rais Yatim, it adds to more prove that corrupt practices is the privilege of the big names with high and strong linkages with the power house.

Dr Mahathir once took Abdullah to task for not taking action against few corrupt leaders and that issue became very hot during the 2008 General Election, which almost brought UMNO to sudden death.

Now it is Najib’s task to act on these cases and he would be directly accountable if he does not act on them which are already in the knowledge of the public.

Failing to act seriously and swiftly on these cases would only mean that Najib’s gigantic and lofty promises to combat corruptions remains a promise and if that is so let us just don’t pay attention to him as he is just another spurious and phony leader like his predecessor.

A real and conscientious leader would have to have balls to act on behalf of the people he leads who are in dire need to live under a clean and unsoiled administration.

The people are tired of the wretched conduct of our leaders who are corrupt and non ethical.

An ex-banker who became a leader does not believe in current banking system by sending out money to London through dubious money changer is not taken offence by the ruling party.

If not for ill intended reason he would have sent out the money though proper banking system which he himself has been in it for more than 2 decades. It’s absurd isn’t it?

In all honesty leadership in UMNO is not serious to change for the better and it does not know how to put the party on track and all of them are no better than my humble self and they are just fit to yarn around with me in mamak stalls and the ‘teh tarik’ outlets that spread on the side road tables.

Initially people were excited to see Najib with high pitch speeches with lofty promises to clean up the party and the government and do away with offenders that can bring shame to the party.

BUT all those promises remain as promises and the people are just too impatient to see the first fulfilled promise to clean up the nation become apparent and real.

The voting public is still waiting for organic changes and replacing the leaders with baggage is always one of the expectations of the people.

Day in day out all the moral perpetrators is still in the high offices which dampen the people’s eagerness and confidence to see the ruling party to be strong again by extricating the party from the corrupt image.

All the people are having dreams of a new political sanitary ambiance, but it’s too unfortunate that our leaders are perpetually dreaming.

In short our leadership still believes that UMNO is still a titanic and monumental that nothing can bring it down, and taking all misbehaved leaders to task is not an urgent issue OR non issue at all.

To them it is only the feelings of a few people like me who have too big and smelly mouths to talk about it again and again. They are still in denial. BUT time and nature will tell all.

They believe that the public is a bunch of apathetic and droopy lots who just stand at the sideline watching and approving all the shenanigans and pranks of their leaders.

We have not learned any lesson from past mistakes and misadventures. It seems we are not going to learn anything at all, now and in the foreseeable future.

Thanks……………………………………………………….Aspan Alias.

Malaysians talk too much..just do your job and let the government do their job..At the end of the day, what is important is the rakyat have a job,welfare taken care of etc..

There are just so many people who want to be leaders in Malaysia.

And the rakyat are too dependent on the government..so many subsidies and yet so ungrateful..

Sigh,Malaysian oh Malaysian..

So don't be leaders and I think that was the reason why Aspan wanted them to join him at teh tarik outlets.

Those leaders were not leaders. They pretend to be leaders.

Bro, you hit well on the nail.


Abu Hurairah said...

Encik Aspan Alias, tak boleh baik dah. Rasuah dalam UMNO tak mungkin dapat dihapuskan. Kalau tak mau Rasuah maka tak usah pilih UMNO. Bila UMNO sudah tiada tiadalah rasuah segila sekarang ini. Itu sahaja penyelesaiannya.

Kita tidak payah mengharap kepada UMNO dan pemimpinnya.

UMNO tidak setia dgn bangsanya maka itu sebaba bangs asing bermaharajalela.

Tetapi itu tidak mengapa, itu memang kehendak kepimpinan, mereka tidak berani menghadapi tekanan dari bangsa asing.

UMNO sudah jual bangsanya, itulah sebabnya orang melayu tidak boleh berbuat apa-apa.

There are still Malays who supported this government in the name of 'menjaga melayu' and not to criticize the government.
Gov can do anything, don't complain, or else pecah Melayu.
They will say that we are shit, dengki, khianat, jealous and all.
But they are the ones who are 'stupid and silly'.

umno johor.

Nice write up but just watch it...now the gov does not have money so there should be much less corruption.
Every in the world does not trust us with money...and that is the main hindrances for for anybody to help us.

Though I don't condone corruption, still my sympathy goes to the ordinary policeman who on the verge of his retirement after having served the Force and country diligently and with a clean record for over 30 years somehow succumbed to this crime. He was arrested, charged and convicted. The amount involved was pittant. He lost everything...his gratuity and pension... not to mention the embarrassment suffered by the family.

What about those high profile cases you have mentioned?

Aspan Alias said...


You are right and agreeing with me totally. I wrote in my article that conviction is meant for the small and the petty.
The ordinary mata-mata used to put on a sticker on his uniform 'saya anti rasuah' but the IGP did not have to do that.
The high profile corruption is committed by members of the high society and he is immuned to the law.
That is why I am in grave unhappiness.

Another issue that you must stay on top of is price fluctuations from the bookmaker. The prices for placing bets do not just change with different bookies but even with the same. You cannot take it for granted that the prices that are quoted in print like the Racing Post will be valid at the time of the event. With sports betting things can change very rapidly so be sure that the price will be honored before placing your bet otherwise this can seriously affect the outcome of your arbitrage sports betting.

Following the philosophy of pyramiding, what happens in this system is that you place a bet and if you come out a winner you re-invest the winnings on the next wager. So in horse racing, for example, you simply let it ride. Also, unlike the other betting systems, the Parlay System offers a lower amount of risk of all bettors for because they only need be concerned with a win, place or show selection or a combination thereof.

Switching a service located outside of the United States it not hard to do. In fact it is quite easy since there are many quality services to choose from. The most difficult thing that you will need to do is find the one that best suits your needs.

If you are employing neither of those two elements, then the risk you run of eventually losing your entire Base Bank is 99.99%. On the other hand, employing only a good Selection System would not only reduce your risk closer to just 10% maximum, you would also have up to a 10% chance of making money. This would mean that the Bookies would suddenly be faced with a 10% possibility of losing to you long-term, rather than a 99.99% certainty of taking your money from you. Throw in a proper Staking Plan on top of that, and you will have increased your chances of winning to as high as 20%.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
