Buruh, nelayan dan juga petani
Gaya hidup kini dah berubah
Anak-anak terasuh mindanya
Lahir generasi bijak pandai
Pakar IT, pakar ekonomi
Jaguh sukan dan juga jutawan
Berkereta jenama negara
Megah menyusur di jalan raya
Alam cyber teknologi terkini
Kejayaan semakin hampiri
Biar di kota ataupun desa
Kita semua pasti merasa bangga
Keranamu kami mendakap tuah
Keranamu kami bangsa berjaya
Keranamu kami hidup selesa
Limpah budi kemakmuran negara
Keranamu kami bebas merdeka
Keranamu myawa dipertaruhkan
Keranamu rela kami berjuang
Demi bangsa kedaulatan negara (ulang dari mula )
Keranamu Negara Malaysia
Malaysia...Terima kasih Malaysia!

A February 22nd AFP News report here and I quote:
A Malaysian blogger sued by a newspaper for defamation denied Thursday that his articles were anti-government.
The government-linked New Straits Times Press (NSTP) filed a legal suit against Ahirudin Attan and another blogger, Jeff Ooi, over a series of items critical of government policy that were published on their sites last year.
"I don't write anti-government articles. (Articles) critical of the government, yes," Ahirudin told AFP.
Grow up, all you dock head!
Why does anything that is analytical, cynical, and critical have to be brandished as anti-government? In the first place, do you understand what is a Government? My words on its own may be meaningless. Lets refer to Wikipedia for some credibility.
"A government is a body that has the authority to make and the power to enforce rules and laws within a civil, corporate, religious, academic, or other organisation or group."
A government essentially administer or supervise over a state or entity of people. At times, government could refer to the executive branch. And, in a democratic government, the people as a whole hold political power to select the "executive" manager and "stakeholders" representative.
Whats wrong with us - the people express ourselves? Its not easy getting appointment to see the "Government" ie Ministers and our representative. Its common that our concerns are lost in RealPolitik.
As far as I see, the Bloggers raised what the Government needs to be pointed out. More so, for the nation's betterment. Most critically, when the CEO of the executive branch of government leader is "in-competent, in-denial and dangerous".
We are voicing what is needed and important to us - corruption, executive abuse, governmental mismanagement and waste, sovereignty, economy, and so on and so forth.
Why should it not concern the Government? If the Government is anti to that, it only means this "Government", meanng the executive branch, is anti- Government?
No sane citizen in this country could possibly be anti-government when we are part of the political process of forming a Government. We are the foundation of government's existence. The social contract theory of government holds that governments are created by the people to provide for their needs.
There is so much of "us" is involve. How can we be "anti-us"?
We Bloggers are simply doing it ...
Kerana Mu Negara Malaysia
Malaysia .... Terima kasih Malaysia
