Pakatan Rakyat or UMNO?

Over here in Japan, we got to enjoy a three-day holiday over the last weekend… wooh…

I have decided for the time being, that weekends for me are ‘off-line’… no internet, no emails…

Weekends are to be enjoyed gardening, to be with my suweeto-haato, breathing the fresh air, listening to the birds chirping, and gazing at the ships passing by…

But utter disgust got the better of me as news pages unfolded on 16th Tuesday…

After Raja Petra, MP Teresa Kok and Sin Chew Daily reporter Tan Hoon Cheng (released shortly after) arrested under the ISA?

Man, this is getting more and more ridiculous…

Come to think of it, the political situation has pretty much boiled down to a contest between UMNO the villains and Pakatan Rakyat the savior…

Current and past events have shown that UMNO is clearly stepping off its limits… and way too far at that…

UMNO is harassing the people as it becomes imminent that it is going to be sacked by the people…

It is becoming obvious that the thuggish party UMNO is no longer fit to lead, and is not able to work for the people…

Several commentators suggest that Pakatan Rakyat should not take over the federal government through the help of politicians jumping ship… it is not morally right, they say…

These folks further propose that Pakatan should focus on doing a good job managing the five states they currently control and wait for the next general election to obtain the mandate of the people…

Well and fine, but I think we do not have the luxury of waiting until the next election…

UMNO is going berserk and it is desperate to maintain power…it is clinging on to straws to do just that…

And I do not rule out the possibility of UMNO using the military and the police to muscle itself into justifying its actions…

I think the UMNO minnows must be feeling pretty scared lately… scared of People Power that has already ditched a dictatorship or two in our neighboring countries…

It is happening now, here at our home…

Pakatan is reported to have approached UMNO, requesting for a peaceful transition of change of power…

I hope good sense prevail although we can never know what the UMNO scumbags would do…

Pakatan Rakyat, multi-racial and fighting for justice, for Malaysians…

Or UMNO, narrow-minded, arrogant, racist, chauvinistic…

Now, is there really any contest?
