If Only Lulu Could Have Great Men Rule Our Great Country


A great man never needs to point out to people, "Admit it, I am great!"
A great man's greatness is so evident, people cannot help but notice it.

If - Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream -- and not make dreams your master;
If you can think -- and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings -- nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run --
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And -- which is more -- you'll be a Man, my son!


Our leaders, sad to say, got it all wrong.
So, so, so wrong.
if only these leaders of our nation could be a man...

I hope you will share this with your kids tonight.

Najib the Great Pretender will soon rename Malaysia as "Great Malaysia", the second country in the world(after Britain) to call itself great. After all, Great Msia is the second country (after Vietnam) in southeast asia capable of sending a cosmonaut to space. The remaining 8 ASEAN bums could not do so

My Pengajian Am textbook says Malaysia is a great country.
I've always believed what I read in my school textbooks...what to do now ?

Yeah, north Korea is great, Cuba is great, Iraq is great.

I suspect it is something to do with the family genes. Like father like son.

" "A great man never needs to point out to people, "Admit it, I am great!" "

Nor a normal person of good integrity need to over-use that "trust me" expression which is more commonly always a con man's giveaway.

Future history textbooks will remember Malaysia as a wasted country ruled by great, first-class mental deficient cretins who had great cavities in the locations where their cerebrums were supposed to be

Lulu,

Surely you must have remembered the parallel wisdom of the "body" language. In case you have forgotten about great men and great leaders, let me put it to you in body language.

"Once upon a time, the organs of the body were in great argument and debate whereby each claiming their great importance and superior complex in body governance. Each of them argued that without their role and functions, the body would go limp and die eventually. The heart said that without it, the blood would not be pumped around and carrying oxygen to the brain, the body would suffer a stroke. The liver, kidney, spleen, bladder and one by one stake their claims. It went on for hours unti one part of the body got so pissed off. "That organ (if you can take it as an organ evwen if it is not), said. No, it shouted at all the organs: "SHUT UP". "Without me, all of you will die with poison and all of you will also die."

The other organs were in deep shock...and looking at the ARSE***hole. inally, the other organs had to submit their arrogance and pride to this organ.

The bottomline is: The ARSEHOLe is in charge (of the body). So there is no such thing as great leaders, my dear Lulu.

Malaysia has benefited from the wisdom of its leaders..?

Never believe in a racist...

when this is what the world think about us...

Malaysia is truly at a cross-roads. It has many good people with great potential but it is slipping beneath the waves of mediocrity, weighed down by officials intent on an orgy of plunder while the ship's captain stands idly by.

The process of government needs to be dramatically and urgently overhauled. Malaysia needs a dynamic, strong visionary leader who is up to the task. Instead, it has Abdullah Badawi.

"Never believe in a racist..."

You won't find a truly sound and fair person in a racist. Here in Bodohland, they dress themselves up as saviours and blow their own trumpets over contrived and exaggerated attainment. The Towering sense of ego that's so very Antediluvian.

This kind of "Great Speech" are usual with this "Great" man or similar "Great" Government officials when they are abroad to talk to among Students and citizen of this "Great" nation and then come up as "Great" news from foreign country.

So, within the specified "Great" domain, it is really "Great". Chinese say well " To Shut the Door and be KING!!" So, why not!!

But, he had forgotten that in this electronic world, the doors are getting more transparent!! Or, just repeating the episode of " King in his "New" Dress!!

"Our leaders, sad to say, got it all wrong."

Inversion of Values is similar to Perversion of Them.

Beneath the veneer lay 50 years of screwing up. Exactly why they felt it is incumbent to make people STFU via the so-called "Internet Code of Ethics" while observing none themselves.
