Selamat Pagi Malaysia….snippets here and there.
Over the last one week or so, a few immigration officers have been arrested for “stamping facility”. To my simple mind, this is tantamount to Treason! And what is the punishment for Treason?
MACC should delve deeper and find the root or Head of this syndicate within the department and assemble them to the nation and telling the populace that these are the very people who have been treacherous!! And that they ought to be commensurately punished!! Ini semua pengkhianat negara! Comment by M

We are all directly or indirectly affected by the CMCO. Hopefully it will be over soon. Death rate is still not high in Kltn although the incidence of obesity diabetes hypertension is high.
Some years ago I wrote an article “the fat patient” which was published by the MMA. The inspiration came about because of the many fat people who came to my clinic including children. I also saw fat people on travelling to KL including airport staff security personnel
Yesterday the number of cases in Malaysia was 1884. Before the state election in Sabah it was only in the 2 figures, a few days only 1. Those responsible for holding the election must take the blame. It was the PM and his party. There were medical professionals who warned that holding an election will spread covid19
Not only that the advice went unheeded but a ruling was made that politicians returning from Sabah not undergo quarantine. It does need a virologist or medical education to know that the virus cannot recognise a politician especially from a certain party. It will infect every body who comes in control with it
Because of the brilliance of our PM and his party advisers we are in this state now.

State of the Nation.
The simple logic is that when the economy is sick , it needs an infusion of new blood . Construction works create the spin off effects to boost economic activity and the best projects are the infrastructure development that will add to the future productive capacity of the economy — roads , bridges , rail , urban transport , regional highways , ports, airports ,schools , hospitals . Not stadiums & palaces — these are more for vanity. . Altho construction works are planned and funded by the govt , the execution on the ground is carried out by contractors . They can be local or foreign companies . The owners of the companies may get rich from the projects but if they create 100, 000 jobs for workers, engineers , technicians , lawyers, accountants , both the rich and the poor will be better off . The important thing is how the contracts are awarded . There must be public accountability so that taxpayers will know the contractors are the right ones for the job.
In 1929 , the US was hit by the Great Depression . Millions of Americans lost jobs and incomes . FDR became president . He introduced the New Deal — highways , dams , rail etc . That govt intervention thru construction works , turned around the economy.
Lord Keynes , the famous British economist , believed strongly in the countercyclical role of govt spending in times of economic recession . Those of my generation all read his theory of employment economics in Form VI , 60 years ago.
Malaysia did the same when we faced the 1985/86 twin- deficit recession . It caried out counter cyclical govt spending to give new blood to the patient ( the economy).

I think Muhy/Azmin/Hamzah/Zafrul’s PN 2021 Budget is based on pie-in-the sky numbers. Do they really think they can achieve a 12.5% swing, RM100 BILLION more, with Covid getting worse and businesses getting devastated? Plan B had better include more massive cuts in defence, PMO, Treasury op & dev exp etc and shift to SMEs. Otw, there’ll be blood all over the country come 2021. Have they really done their homework or is it a rushed budget by rank amateurs ? Numbers do not lie!😞😞😞 Comment by E.S Shankar
