TSMY : Another perspective.
If I were UMNO the obvious desperation of the rakyat would be something I could exploit, to harass Mr Moo.
If I were Mr Moo, I would encourage them to try, and if they do, I would have a reason to throw the warlords hostile to me, into Kamunting.
And if I were us, I would encourage everyone to impose a moratorium on ourselves to limit or cease completely the amount of inflammatory forwards that we forward without thinking.
Clever people out there, with obvious interests, are using/exploiting the propensity of simpletons to multi-forward everything “juicy” they receive, to achieve their hidden agendas. Most times, we become an accessory to mischief, without us even realizing it. I vote we give Mr. Moo the benefit of the doubt, give him some slack, and pray he has some righteousness in him to try and put right the multiple woes facing our sad country. Generally speaking, much of the venom we spew in here is quite nonproductive.
For one, we are preaching to the converted, and two, it’s mostly hot air because most of us talk only, but do nothing. If we want to help, and I know many in here are quite wealthy, let’s start a fund or a foundation, to actually help the urban poor and those most highly impacted by the MCO. I believe, in times of difficulties, the huge component of foreign labor in our country, both legal and illegal. Will be the hardest hit. Then the daily paid wage earners and those who kais pagi makan pagi, and kais petang makan petang. All the venom being spewed in here are interesting reading material, but bottom line, they hardly change anything. So shall we start a donation drive to collect money to fund a soup kitchen or nasi lemak bungkus initiative to feed the urban poor?
BTW, stop worrying too much about big businesses and capital flight. They know how to take care of themselves.
And don’t worry about the stock market too. They know how to make money from both ends of the spectrum.
Banks? I believe they are still making handsome profits.
It is the urban poor who are hardest hit. The rural folks are relatively better off. Post-war, I remember eating ubi kayu and grated coconut as a staple.
