Bloggers And Seed of Discord

Band of Trouble Makers
Another politician joins the chorus of blogger-bashing.

This is a Bernama story:

KUALA LUMPUR, March 29 -- The government has to find ways to curtail bloggers from abusing the Internet to spread lies and defame the leaders, said Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob (BN-Bera)."
We notice that a lot of bloggers have been sowing the seeds of discord among the races, religions... I believe there must be a limit," he said in a debate on the royal address in the Dewan Rakyat here today.
He felt that there ought to be a law governing bloggers like those imposed on the print and broadcast media.
"The people believe more in the bloggers than the newspapers... I am aware that a newspaper was censured by the Internal Security Ministry for publishing a sensational story but the bloggers could continue churning out malicious stories," he said.

essentially, this MP is another brainless, witless bozo. but even dimwits speak sense sometimes:

"The people believe more in the bloggers than the newspapers... ".

Bravo, Ismail Sabri Yaakob! but i advise you read up about bloggers before you open your mouth.

"The people believe more in the bloggers than the newspapers..."

If only he hears what he says, then this Ismail Sabri guy would not have said what he said. In one breath he vindicates bloggers and at the same time exposes his real fear and intent.

Yah, who wants to read/(hear) the lies dirty politicians spew forth in the media that they control?

Now, this must be the best case of The Best Form Of Defence Is To Attack strategy put into action. So they claim it is the bloggers "sowing the seeds of discord among the races, religions..." The same old blame game at work. They said it first and louder so it must be true. Isn't it more like they are afraid of bloggers exposing them doing exactly that - with videos to boot, too?

Control, control, control ... that's all they can think of to hide their evil work. Why not start to prove bloggers wrong by doing the right thing and we will broadcast your shining contoh, contoh, contoh ... to ensure your continued political presence?

Sighhhhhh, this is one of the biggest malady that we have to live with - CULTURE OF BLAME - never once did these people consider the root cause of things. In this case, no indication that they ever considered why the people distrust newspapers, instead blame bloggers for fear to the erosion of their wayang kulit. Letih listening to such gripes.

It is amazing to see Ismail Sabri Yaakub emerging as another joker to join the chorus of the comedy group led by Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Freedom, freedom to voice out, freedom of the press?

A BIG joke, eh?

Ismail Sabri Yaakub is new, some do not even know his existence in the Pak Lah's cabinet ministers line up.

Most recently in Kedah, he said nasty and was hit vocally by UMNO lower leader in Kedah.

Some bloggers carry this at each their blog.

Ismail Sabri Yaakub now feels the heat.

With wastage spending moves by the Ministry of Youth and Sports - the nationwide complexes, and the cash rewards for Olympic Gold Medalists, and more, then he will naturally need what law to stop bloggers from voicing incessantly.

I've on all occasions liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of just dissipate in days of yore staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to reduce stress and strain and just fantasize just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've eternally at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, harmonious boxes etc. So I was most pleased when I base the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Shine Appear Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from answerable to the Toys section. It's like a harmonious box, a spinning top, and a moonlight reveal all rolled into one. Which is spectacular entertainment! The gyroscope transfer outing for around a minute. The laser enlightenment pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a pretty corresponding exactly tiny that my friends get also been most amused with.

My dogs are also fair eccentric nearly the laser gyroscope I got from They evermore follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser slight boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got used it, they've stopped barking but just save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused next to it. Occasionally it's proper to maintain diverting toys throughout the house so that you can leave the diminutive on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count fit out foodstuffs or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is a particular such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a gegenschein indicate with red, downcast, and green colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but facts sufficiency to treat any new roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and jet-black, making it look particular imperturbable, and slightly masculine with that dragon imprint.

The music luminescence inform gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also utilized this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy terror of decorating the hostelry room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser torchlight show produces a fresh effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a rather romantic atmosphere. She loved it, by the going, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my non-fulfilment shopping locality for all gifts and ideas for fancied occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser lamp playing gyroscope can perhaps be a momentous Christmas contribution seeking the toddler or even the humour! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a polite reckoning to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can presume placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my business thus far again!
