Our nation is now steered by a premier who has bloodied his hands against his own.

now uthaykumar can get political asylum in the United States for sure. Become a guest lecturer at major universities etc...

in return, just suffer for 2 years.

by the way, talking bad about your country does not mean you dont love your country. It depends what pak lah means by the word defaming?

Isnt corruption or talking trash in parliament with racial and sexist remarks sort of defaming the image of your country as well?

It is sad when this is cooked by all crooks
To hunt down those with Rights to talk
to stuck those leading to hopes!

To shut the mouths of those who talk
but forget all eyes will note
that Fairness broke
with ISA to mop!
Not in the court
but by power that ignores!

Tears and sorrow drown the stars and moon
red and yellow had stripped off!
Tears and sorrow mess them all!!
What remain for the flag to hold??

When People are tortured to tiny!
How high the flag can fly?
or be seen in the sky?
Then dwarf can be giant to all??
Where are the mind to realize all?

Tears drop into the ocean of sorrow!!
Hearts rise to respect the Heros!
Dwarfs be out of sight from the picture!!

Sri,

Talking bad is ok. But FALSE accusation is NOT OK. Telling the world that we carry out "ethnic cleansing" is not a way to tell the world that we love our country. Its totally different than talking trash.

Talking bad about one's country abroad is akin to prostituting oneself in the hope of being appointed as a foriegn stooge and an annointed leader amongst the opposition. The other logical reason is to destroy the image of the country abroad out of spite.

It's like talking bad about your wife but you still go home and bed her good.

You'd have more respect from people if you condemn the country you left in disgust than to condemn it only to come home to it.

If the ageing wife finds out about your chatter about her, do you think she'd spread it out for you every night after? I think not.

Sri, don't talk about corruption like its the favourite pastime only amongst politicians. I've seen it in lawyers, journalists, doctors, the police even in places of worship where you're required to make a small contribution for the prayers you want. Everyone is guilty of it, so let's not fool ourselves. Find another way to attack because corruption is overused and you're beginning to sound redundant.

In parliament, they all act like monkeys from both sides of the aisle because the imbesile sitting as Speaker doesn't know how to control the floor. So...which monkey did you vote for Sri?

The blood on the premier's hands is not of his own. It is the blood of a traitor who's allegience is to the Queen of England and Ghandi. If indeed his hands is stained with the blood of traitors, it is the hand that I'll be proud to shake.

Well done Pak Lah!

When did talking bad about your country or for that matter saying false things about your country become a crime? It may be contemptible and possibly even a betrayal. But a crime? Maybe some lawyer can elaborate on this.
