The World According to Student Bloopers

The World According to Student Bloopers

Richard Lederer
St. Paul's School

One of the fringe benefits of being an English or History teacher is receiving the occasional jewel of a student blooper in an essay. I have pasted together the following "history" of the world from certifiably genuine student bloopers collected by teachers throughout the United States, from eight grade through college level. Read carefully, and you will learn a lot.

The inhabitants of Egypt were called mummies. They lived in the Sarah Dessert and traveled by Camelot. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere, so certain areas of the dessert are cul- tivated by irritation. The Egyptians built the Pyramids in the shape of a huge triangular cube. The Pramids are a range of mountains between France and Spain.

The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the first book of the Bible, Guinesses, Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. One of their children, Cain, asked "Am I my brother's son?" God asked Abraham to sacrifice Issac on Mount Montezuma. Jacob, son of Issac, stole his brother's birthmark. Jacob was a partiarch who brought up his twelve sons to be partiarchs, but they did not take to it. One of Jacob's sons, Joseph, gave refuse to the Israelites.

Pharaoh forced the Hebrew slaves to make bread without straw. Moses led them to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fougth with the Philatelists, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon, one of David's sons, had 500 wives and 500 porcupines.

Without the Greeks, we wouldn't have history. The Greeks invented three kinds of columns - Corinthian, Doric and Ironic. They also had myths. A myth is a female moth. One myth says that the mother of Achilles dipped him in the River Stynx until he became intolerable. Achilles appears in "The Illiad", by Homer. Homer also wrote the "Oddity", in which Penelope was the last hardship that Ulysses endured on his journey. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name.
Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock.

In the Olympic Games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits, and threw the java. The reward to the victor was a coral wreath. The government of Athen was democratic because the people took the law into their own hands. There were no wars in Greece, as the mountains were so high that they couldn't climb over to see what their neighbors were doing. When they fought the Parisians, the Greeks were outnumbered because the Persians had more men.

Eventually, the Ramons conquered the Geeks. History call people Romans because they never stayed in one place for very long. At Roman banquets, the guests wore garlic in their hair. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March killed him because they thought he was going to be made king. Nero was a cruel tyrany who would torture his poor subjects by playing the fiddle to them.

Then came the Middle Ages. King Alfred conquered the Dames, King Arthur lived in the Age of Shivery, King Harlod mustarded his troops before the Battle of Hastings, Joan of Arc was cannonized by George Bernard Shaw, and the victims of the Black Death grew boobs on their necks. Finally, the Magna Carta provided that no free man should be hanged twice for the same offense.

In midevil times most of the people were alliterate. The greatest writer of the time was Chaucer, who wrote many poems and verse and also wrote liter- ature. Another tale tells of William Tell, who shot an arrow through an apple while standing on his son's head.

The Renaissance was an age in which more individuals felt the value of their human being. Martin Luther was nailed to the church door at Wittenberg for selling papal indulgences. He died a horrible death, being excommunicated by a bull. It was the painter Donatello's interest in the female nude that made him the father of the Renaissance. It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg invented the Bible. Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure because he invented cigarettes. Another important invention was the circulation of blood. Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100-foot clipper.

The government of England was a limited mockery. Henry VIII found walking difficult because he had an abbess on his knee. Queen Elizabeth was the "Vir- gin Queen." As a queen she was a success. When Elizabeth exposed herself be- fore her troops, they all shouted "hurrah." Then her navy went out and defeated the Spanish Armadillo.

The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespear. Shakespear never made much money and is famous only because of his plays. He lived in Windsor with his merry wives, writing tragedies, comedies and errors. In one of Shakespear's famous plays, Hamlet rations out his situation by relieving himself in a long soliloquy. In another, Lady Macbeth tries to convince Mac- beth to kill the King by attacking his manhood. Romeo and Juliet are an example of a heroic couplet. Writing at the same time as Shakespear was Miquel Cervantes. He wrote "Donkey Hote". The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote "Paradise Lost." Then his wife dies and he wrote "Paradise Regained."

During the Renaissance America began. Christopher Columbus was a great navigator who discovered America while cursing about the Atlantic. His ships were called the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Fe. Later the Pilgrims crossed the Ocean, and the was called the Pilgrim's Progress. When they landed at Plymouth Rock, they were greeted by Indians, who came down the hill rolling their was hoops before them. The Indian squabs carried porposies on their back. Many of the Indian heroes were killed, along with their cabooses, which proved very fatal to them. The winter of 1620 was a hard one for the settlers. Many people died and many babies were born. Captain John Smith was responsible for all this.

One of the causes of the Revolutionary Wars was the English put tacks in their tea. Also, the colonists would send their pacels through the post with- out stamps. During the War, Red Coats and Paul Revere was throwing balls over stone walls. The dogs were barking and the peacocks crowing. Finally, the colonists won the War and no longer had to pay for taxis.

Delegates from the original thirteen states formed the Contented Congress. Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two singers of the Declaration of Independence. Franklin had gone to Boston carrying all his clothes in his pocket and a loaf of bread under each arm. He invented elec- tricity by rubbing cats backwards and declared "a horse divided against itself cannot stand." Franklin died in 1790 and is still dead.

George Washington married Matha Curtis and in due time became the Father of Our Country. Them the Constitution of the United States was adopted to secure domestic hostility. Under the Constitution the people enjoyed the right to keep bare arms.

Abraham Lincoln became America's greatest Precedent. Lincoln's mother died in infancy, and he was born in a log cabin which he built with his own hands. When Lincoln was President, he wore only a tall silk hat. He said, "In onion there is strength." Abraham Lincoln write the Gettysburg address while traveling from Washington to Gettysburg on the back of an envelope. He also signed the Emasculation Proclamation, and the Fourteenth Amendment gave the ex-Negroes citizenship. But the Clue Clux Clan would torcher and lynch the ex-Negroes and other innocent victims. On the night of April 14, 1865, Lincoln went to the theater and got shot in his seat by one of the actors in a moving picture show. The believed assinator was John Wilkes Booth, a sup- posedl insane actor. This ruined Booth's career.
Meanwhile in Europe, the enlightenment was a reasonable time. Voltare invented electricity and also wrote a book called "Candy". Gravity was invented by Issac Walton. It is chiefly noticeable in the Autumn, when the apples are flaling off the trees.

Bach was the most famous composer in the world, and so was Handel. Handel was half German, half Italian and half English. He was very large. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he wrote loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when everyone was calling for him. Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died for this.

France was in a very serious state. The French Revolution was accomplished before it happened. The Marseillaise was the theme song of the French Revolu- tion, and it catapulted into Napoleon. During the Napoleonic Wars, the crowned heads of Europe were trembling in their shoes. Then the Spanish gorrilas came down from the hills and nipped at Napoleon's flanks. Napoleon became ill with bladder problems and was very tense and unrestrained. He wanted an heir to inheret his power, but since Josephine was a baroness, she couldn't bear him any children.

The sun never set on the British Empire because the British Empire is in the East and the sun sets in the West. Queen Victoria was the longest queen. She sat on a thorn for 63 years. He reclining years and finally the end of her life were exemplatory of a great personality. Her death was the final event which ended her reign.

The nineteenth century was a time of many great inventions and thoughts. The invention of the steamboat caused a network of rivers to spring up. Cyrus McCormick invented the McCormick Raper, which did the work of a hundred men. Samuel Morse invented a code for telepathy. Louis Pastuer discovered a cure for rabbis. Charles Darwin was a naturailst who wrote the "Organ of the Species". Madman Curie discovered radium. And Karl Marx became one of the Marx Brothers.

The First World War, cause by the assignation of the Arch-Duck by a surf, ushered in a new error in the anals of human history.

STAY ALERT!


Because of recent abductions in daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation. This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, everyone you know.

After reading these
9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

 
 
 
 
 
 
1. Tip from ‘Tae Kwon Do’:  The elbow is the strongest point on your
     body. If you are close enough to use it, Do So, and hold nothing back!

2.. Learned this from a tourist guide.
 If a robber asks for your wallet
     and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. .....Toss it away from you.... 
     Chances are
that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse
     than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE 
     OTHER DIRECTION!

3.
  If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail   
     lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy..   
     The driver won't see you,
but everybody else will. This has saved
     lives.

4.
  Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating,
     working, etc., and just sit (doing their chequebook, or making a list, 
     etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is 
     the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a
     gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET
     INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

If someone
is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF,
Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF!
Instead gun the engine and speed into anything,
wrecking the car.
Your Air Bag will save you.
If the person is
in the back seat they will get the worst of it .
As soon as the car crashes bail out and run.
It is better
than having them find your body in a remote location.

5.
  A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking
    garage:
    A.)
Be aware: Look around you, look into your car, at the passenger 
    side floor, and in the back seat.
    B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the 
    passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them
    into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

    C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the 
    passenger side...If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car,
    you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get guard/ 
    policeman to walk you back out.
    IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better  
    paranoid than dead.)

6.
ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs.
   Stairwells are horrible places
to be alone and the perfect crime spot.   
   This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS 
    RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times;  
    and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN,
    Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8.
As women are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP!!! It may get you 
    raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well 
    educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of
   unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often   
   asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he 
   abducted his next victim.

9.
Another Safety Point:     A lady heard a crying baby on her porch recently, and she called the  
    police because it was late and she thought it was weird..  
    The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..'
    The lady
then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a   
    window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get 
    run over.
    The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you 
    do, DO NOT open the door.'

He told her that they think
a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.  
10
. Water scam!
     If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside   
     running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO
     INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast   
     so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbours!
Please pass this on.

If you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, friends etc., you may want to pass this onto them.

Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it's better to be safe than sorry...

Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this.
It may save your’s or a loved one's life.

TEN TEN TEN.


Twilight Time : The Platters


CHER






Who will tell Rosmah that she is the unmitigated bitch that some son's have had the misfortune to have as their mother!


Who will tell Rosmah that she is the unmitigated bitch that some son's have had the misfortune to have as their mother! 

Surely, even for Rosmah, the revelation that it cost's RM$1200 to dye her hair is behavior beyond the pale - outside the bounds of morality, good behavior or judgement, unacceptable? 

And if she chooses to debate with me that she is NOT the bitch that some son's have had the misfortune to have had, tell me Rosmah, which part of "bitch" do you not understand? "Bitch" as a verb or "bitch" as a noun?

noun: Bitch - a spiteful or unpleasant women.
verb: make spitefully critical and stupid comment.

Words related to bitch : whore, slut, bitches, ass, ugly, fat , stupid.

Which of the above or possibly all of the above - will be deemed appropriate by others to be your lot, is for them to decide. I have my own thoughts on the matter which are best kept on a "need to know" basis lest anyone think me uncouth or worse, also the son of a bitch too.  

Holy mother of God women do you not understand the ramification of such a revelation? Do you not understand that RM$1200 is what some families cannot even expect to earn in a month. That RM$1200 is not what many women would be prepared to pay for a lifetime of their hair being dyed? 

What posses this women to tell our nation this? 

Is this her idea of gaining our sympathy by sharing with us her own "hardship" of having to juggle paying RM$1200 for her hair to be dyed and RM$500 for tailored dresses on no income? Really Rosmah....you expect sympathy from us by telling us this?

Is this her way of telling us that she too knows the hardship that many Malaysian are facing in this troubled economic times? That she too is beginning to feel the pinch - imagine, she tells us, imagine if she had to pay more than the RM1200 that she is now already paying to get her hair dyed? And more than RM$500 to tailor her dresses.

And she tells Najib and whoever else is listening...she is worried that the GST will make those RM$1200 hair dying sessions no longer affordable and the making of RM$500 tailored dresses for her amply proportioned self, more expensive...and how is she to cope when she has "no income" and is dependent on her husband for handouts? 

And how does she expect other housewives to react to these revelations of the "difficulties" and "money woes" she is having in her own household? In Seri Perdana? 

Bitch do you think we care? 

Anyone that tell me that she is paying RM$1200 to dye their hair would at best  be the recipient of an incredulous and withering stare from me. Incredulous because surely nobody is dumb enough to pay THAT much to have their hair dyed. Withering because you cannot figure how anyone is that stupid to pay that much when you can do the same thing with Wella products for under RM$100!

And now we come to the husband? No we are not talking about Rosmah again....we are talking about Najib...the one who has the income. What of him? 

Did they not discuss what she was going to say that day at the Bakti GST briefing over breakfast? Did he not choke on his toast or splutter some coffee all over the tablecloth when she announced to him what she was about to tell the world about her RM$1200 hair dye and the RM$500 tailored dress charges? 

Or did he just muttered "Yes Dear...OK dear...buat lah apa yang patut dear" 


What would I tell Najib to tell her? 

"Pakai aja lah tudung dear...tak payah dye!"

Then and Now.

steadyaku47 comment: I came across this article (author unknown) in October 2010 and posted it on my blog late Ocotber 2010 because there were truths in what he said. To day almost five years later I came across it again this evening as I looked back to the early years when I first started blogging. 

Abang Lah was then Prime MInister. 

Today with Najib Razak as Prime Minister nothing much has changed. It is for you to read what the writer thought of Abang Lah and Umno five years ago and ask yourself if the same could be said of Najib and Umno today. An interesting leap back into time.

UMNO - The Fallen Legacy

I am an UMNO member to its core. I used to believe in its fight for Malay supremacy and Malaysia. I respect and am indebted to all its presidents; Onn Jaafar, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn and Tun Mahathir Mohamed. This is the party which fought against the Malayan Union, the independence, the development and the glory; right until the time Mahathir handed the power (and the fate of the nation) to Abdullah. BN won with landslide victory in the 11th GE. I had believed that we were in the good hands of Abdullah. But he turns out to be a traitor!

The doom fated UMNO will crash to its knee and the only way to stop the inevitable is to remove Abdullah. I am Malay and accustomed to its ‘sopan-santun’ culture but never have I hated any political leader as I hate him now. Even Karpal and Anwar now look better to me. Khairy and Kamaludin’s involvements and influence in UMNO and federal administration are catalysts to the demise of this great and glorious party. I am ASHAMED even to recognize Abdullah as my Prime Minister (PM). If I have the power I would erase any proof that Abdullah was PM!

Mahathir had once said that his only failure was to change the Malays. He is wrong! Mahathir’s biggest and fatal mistake is the choice of his successor, Abdullah! What has Abdullah done for the past six years? Can anyone answer me? He has done NOTHING but damages. Who the hell is Abdullah to cancel the curve bridge? Who the hell is he to give federal and state contracts to Khairy’s ECM Libra and Kamaludin’s Scomi? If he is in the U.S. he could have been shot to death. Abdullah and his family and friends must be removed if UMNO wants to recover. There is no other way.

In power now are those of Abdullah’s ‘yes-men’. This includes Nazri and Shahrir. Nazri (who the hell is he?) was the one who dared Mahathir to quit UMNO. I feel pity for this man. He does not know that I am Mahathir’s disciple and I will become Malaysia’s eighth PM and I will hunt him down and jail him for being ungrateful to Mahathir. I will jail Abdullah for his absolute betrayal to his people and I will jail Khairy for his idiotic idea of becoming the youngest PM. What about Abdullah’s son, Kamaludin? He will also end up in jail for consuming our wealth thru Petronas and Rapid.

Mahathir must come back to set UMNO right. Then only Najib can take over. Najib has no power against Abdullah. Mahathir must sack all those senators and ministers who are ungrateful to him. We do not need these hooligans as our leaders. To manage multi-racial Malaysia we must have a determine and powerful leader like Mahathir. Abdullah is weak. Though many hate Mahathir but many respect him. Who dares to bring up race and rights issues during Mahathir? Such was the fear that leads to a stable and prosperous nation. Unlike Abdullah, who, can go to hell (or go to sleep?).

If Abdullah (God forbids) continues to stay (he may) BN and UMNO will stumble and crash and will not recover. Gone are all the resources that make them powerful and invincible. Rakyat will vote for the oppositions not because they want to vote for the oppositions but they want to teach Abdullah, UMNO and BN some lessons. And PR definitely prefers Abdullah to stay because this is the only way they can win the 13th GE. They know the rakyat will vote them out of disgust to Abdullah. Malaysia in the hands of PR will suffer. No one thinks they can manage Malaysia.
 

Loke Thean Meng : No one, no government, no leader, no party is too big, or more important than the people. Now please, you Ubah and do something for the people.

steadyaku47 comment : From a comment left on my FB page by Tengku Mohammed Taib I went to Tengku's FB page and came across this eloquent and heartfelt rendering of what many ordinary Malaysian are now facing. Read and you will know what is in Thean Meng's heart.  
 
Loke Thean Meng
I am an ordinary Malaysian. I come from a lower middle class family. Although I take special interest in the political climate of our nation, it is meaningless in my day to day affairs.

I am curious about Altantuya’s murder. I am confused about Anwar Ibrahim’s prosecution. I am worried about PAS-DAP bickering over hudud. I am sad over the demise of Nik Aziz.

However, being curious, confused, worried and sad over the happenings around us doesn’t put food on the table nor does it ease the burden of our daily life.

I apologise if I sound like a simpleton but I AM an ordinary Malaysian and this IS the truth.

My biggest issues are the rising cost of food and services ; the water disruption ; massive traffic on the roads ; our messy education system ; my children’s heavy school bags ; the increase in house rental (don’t get me started on property prices!) ; the increase in break-ins in my neighbourhood.

In every general election, I voted for the candidate and party whom I thought would fight to ease my burden and improve my life. But guess what? Nothing has changed.

It boils my blood to read about my elected representative talk cock about issues which do not contribute to my well-being.
Endless criticism on a closed case. Raising doubts over conspiracy allegations. Non-stop complaints of ignorant, greedy, power mad, corrupt politicians, religious scholars, etc.

What utter rubbish!

Day in, day out, it is always about what’s best for the party. These people seem to have brainwashed many into believing that the only way to improve the fate of our country is by standing by the struggle of the party.

Hello, can’t you see the struggle of the rakyat?

While you continuously bicker about everything and anything, we are the ones who are screwed up left, right, front, back, top and bottom.

During your election campaigns, you spoke highly about people power. You said we could change the fate of our nation. JOM UBAH!

If rakyat is the true power, why aren’t you focusing your attention on us? Why are our needs ignored?

Funnier yet, instead of helping us, you now turn the tables seeking us to help you. Are you on some sort of medication?

While you are focused on Sirul, Najib, Hadi, Anwar, hudud, 1MDB and what not, we are running our lives in auto mode.

While you are flying around in your red undies and cape, trying to become a hero you are obviously not, we are enslaving ourselves.

I don’t know who screwed who in the murder case. I don’t know who screwed who in the sodomy case. But you have been screwing us every single day since we voted for you.

For god’s sake, snap out of it!

What improvement can take place when all you do is play the finger pointing game? He did this. He did that. But you know what? I don’t give a crap. The question is, what did YOU do?

You have got to realise that the future of the country lies with us, the people. So stop waiting for things to criticise about. You are not a news reporter. You are a leader. So lead.

Now don’t get me wrong. I am not lazy to fight for change, for a better Malaysia. I am all for it. But please lah, don’t do it at the expense of the rakyat like me.

The high class and the upper middle class might have nothing to lose. With steady incomes, children enrolled in private institutions, foreign investments, secure jobs, secure properties and secure connections everywhere, I am sure life is a jolly good ride. They have the means to sit down and cheer as they watch the two big brothers wrestle in their clown suits.

People like me who think luxury in life is sipping a cup of hot latte once a month – we are the ones feeling the pinch. But wait, if it hurts someone like me who can still afford to pay my bills and drink my lattes, what about those who are much more deprived than I?

What are our ‘saviours’ doing to help them?

Jom Ubah? My foot.

Nothing, no one, no government, no leader, no party is too big, or more important than the people.

Now please, you Ubah and do something for the people.

Is Anwar guilty of Sodomy one and two? Yes he is.



First let's get the elephant out of the room.

Is Anwar guilty of Sodomy One and Two? Yes he is. 

He got away with sodomy One but not sodomy Two. The evidence. admissable or otherwise, tells us so. It  tells us that sodomy, willingly or otherwise, did take place between Saiful and Anwar. 

Has there been a conspiracy by Umno and Anwar's distractors to witch hunt Anwar? In one word - yes! If Anwar gives them the opportunity to do just that why should we expect them not to pursue him all the way to the highest courts in the land to get a conviction?

So where does it leave us? By us I mean those of us who can think for themselves and make rational decisions that would allow for us to move on to the next level.

Let us recap. 

Sodomy is a personal choice. Missionary position, Sex doggy style, oral sex or sex with multiple partners or even sex with Rosmah - these are all personal choice that one makes in the course of living life. Personal choices in life done between  consenting adults in most parts of the world that we live in is really no body business but our own. 

However if you profess yourself to be a Muslim and live by the tenets of Islam  - as Anwar does - than what he has done with Saiful is wrong. 

By the same token what Najib and Rosmah did before they were married to each other while married to other people - is also wrong in the eyes of Islam. 

What the Sultan of Selangor is now doing with his "bit by the side" and what the Sultan of Pahang has done in fathering a child out of wedlock - is also wrong in the eyes of Islam. 

What that raba raba guy did before he was appointed Malaysia's envoy to Washington (huh!), is also wrong.

What that former CJ did with Hayati too is wrong. 

And the mother of all wrong was committed by that Thamby Chik guy who had sex with an underage Malay school girl.

They all did wrong and what separates them all is a matter of degree. Maybe one wrong is worse than the other. Maybe one wrong is borderline unIslamic - but make no mistake - they all did wrong in the eyes of Islam!

So why has Anwar been prosecuted and persecuted when the others are not?

Because just as history is written by the victor - in Boehland, justice is dispensed by the courts as per the instructions of the AG who is the willing running dog of his political masters. 


WIll Saiful be prosecuted for Sodomy? Under a PR government yes but certanily not under BN. 

What should we think of Anwar now? 

Forget his personal follies of which there are many from the time he was in Umno until Saiful. Remember instead  what he has done.

Without Anwar Ibrahim there would not have been a Pakatan Rakyat. 

Without Anwar Ibrahim the Umno led BN government would not have lost the popular vote in the last general election. 

Without Anwar Ibrahim no one would have been able to mount a credible challenge to 50 years of corrupt governance by the Umno led BN government.

With Anwr Ibrahim there is now a credible opposition in Parliament (okay this is debatable but we are getting there!).
So go and total up the plus and minus of all the above and then ask yourself where you stand : with Anwar Ibrahim or against him? 

Once you do that then go and take your place in history. 

If you take a position with BN and all that it stands for - corruption, arrogance, abuse of public office for personal gain, abuse of religion and race for political advantage, money politics and a host of other misdeeds - then you have decided to make a stand with satan, the devil and all that is evil in politics and in government.

If you, like me, take your place beside Anwar Ibrahim and what he has been fighting for all his adult life - then you know that you stand for all that is good in politics and in government. You know that a decent future starts with what you do now. You know that in the end good will triumph over evil and you understand that all that this BN government has perpetrated over the people of Malaysia has been because too many good men and good women have chosen to do nothing when they should not. 

Anwar could have gone into comfortable exile. He did not.

Anwar could have instigated a more forceful, vigerous and physical opposition to BN and to his incarceration. He did not.

Anwar was prepared to face prison because he believed, rightly, that imprisonment would do more for our cause against BN than exiled would have done for him and his family. And for Anwar's courage in making a bold decision that has been at great cost to his personal self, we must give him our respect and our commitment that what he has done will not be in vain.

Because of Anwar we have hope for change.
Because of Anwar we have the means for change.
And because of Anwar change is now a work in progress. 

We stand with Anwar Ibrahim as we stand with those other two that have gone physically from our midst but never from our side - the great Karpal Singh and that giant amongst us - Tok Guru Nik Aziz. With Anwar there is still Lim Kit Siang and then there is you and me. Lawan mesti lawan!

Hand Kissing Contest in Bolehland.


steadyaku47 comment: Blast from the past - posted this sometime back.















































































































































This year a best hand-kissing competition was held at Putra Jaya and among the thousands four persons were short listed. It was indeed a tough decision for the judges . 

A surprise challenge came from Kamalanathan of the MIC who was the early leader.

But the former MB of Kedah Madzhir was a mite better than Kamalanathan .

He was however toppled by Shahidan Kassim the ex MB of Perlis who did the side-way kiss with perfection but unfortunately was disqualified because he left too much saliva on Najib's hand. 

And the runaway winner was the MB of Trengganu Ahmad Said with his low bow and sprint kiss -- something never seen exhibited before. Word has it that A.Said has been practicing this sprint kiss on the quiet for almost a year and perfected the art before the competition.

Congratulations Ahmad Said a great performance and a true athletic performance!
