What happened when you elect (thinking you are clever) , a state Pakatan Rakyat government and the Federal Barisan Nasional Government ....?
The State Government, manages land matters, religious affairs (through respective religious Jabatan),Local Services, Municipal Councils, State Machineries, Public Works, Water Management and Fisheries and Penyu..
For Penang state, since 1974, development programs were planned and designed by the Federal Government jointly with the State. The State execute the plan but funding comes from Federal because Federal control state allocation. The money is with the Federal Government. Gerakan control of Penang since 1974 and its move to join Barisan benefit the people. They understood the Senarai Negeri and Persekutuan well. Together the State and Federal , developed Penang. The State just cant do it on their own. Not like the "dungu" current Penang State government. Lim Guang Eng after one year in 2009 he declared that they cant do a lot of things...!! Of courselah..We are a Federated Government.
Without the support of the Federal Government, the state government can only manage the status quo but it has no money to plan for future development. This is where the State starts to "cari makan" by changing land status to get money for itself so that it can function without the Federal Government support. Another way , these states , out of its own, will get money from outside (other countries), or business communities , etc..to function properly with enough borrowed money to manage its affairs. This will cause the State to kow tow to these Ah Long as far as state resources and contracts is concerned. Most dangerous Anwar Ibrahim is trying to get funds from USA (The Jews) for all these Opposition States. Read the book, Confessions of an Enconomic Hitman by John Perkins. Here are some of it ;
"Economic hit men,” John Perkins writes, “are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe...John Perkins should know—he was an economic hit man. His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the U.S.—from Indonesia to Panama—to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development, and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to U. S. corporations. Saddled with huge debts, these countries came under the control of the United States government, World Bank and other U.S.-dominated aid agencies that acted like loan sharks—dictating repayment terms and bullying foreign governments into submission.
The people dont know these facts. None of the Opposition Candidates informed them about these. So when the State have issues like Kg Buah Pala where a dispute about land status occurred, and the matter was brought to the Highest Court in Malaysia.
Land matter is under the State jurisdiction but in this case the state was render useless. The State Government refused to pay off the developer Nusmetro Bhd (out of the court settlement) because the state dont have much money firstly, secondly, the money spent was not worth it as Indians are not the majority in Penang. Thirdly the state cant get money from the Federal government. Malulah nak minta tolong...They hantam the Federal Government nicely during the 2008 election campaigns.
So Lim Guan Eng declared, the state just got not enough money to settle off the law-suit. Then he blamed the previous state government. Easy way out to cuci tangan. If the previous state government was not voted out, of course they (the state government) will get support from the Federal Government to settle this matter by paying off the developer. The people voted for a new State government as such, they get what they voted for.
If for the Opposition to do any changes , they must control the Federal Government which they cant because there is just not enough stupid people in the whole of Malaysia to be cheated likewise they did with the Chinese , Malay and Indians in Penang, Kedah, Kelantan and Selangor.
When PR manages Kelantan, Kedah, Penang and Selangor, they cant do much for these states. Just check with Kedah state government, what good has the PAS government did since 2008 apart from giving state lands to the people ? Likewise , the Kelantan state government. The people sufferred because the state is being managed by an administration without money.
Thats why Nik Aziz prayed to Allah so that Najib will be struct by a deadly disease , cause our dear PM doesnt want to provide funds from the " so called Wang Ehsan" straight to the Kelantan State.
Money matters is the jurisdiction of the Federal Government and they have a right to deny any opposition states from any financial aid cause that is the meaning of Kerajaan Persekutuan.
The states once it received funding from Federal will use it - to show the people that it is running the State well without even giving credit to the Federal Government. At the end of the day , they will get rid of the good Federal Government. Anyway our Federal Government did released funds to even Opposition States for the sake of the people. Recently Kelantan was allocated RM 438 million for various projects under the Federal Government. Senarai Persekutuan. Not to the State Government.
In the first place where the Federal Government got its money from....It is from the people taxes and other taxes levied on businesses and other incomes from the services provided to the people. The Federal Government uses these incomes to build infrastructures to attract more FDI. With low tax levied to foreign investors, cheap labour and good infrastructure, FDI came in to Malaysia like red herrings. The planning and organizing of these activities , done by our Federal Government from the Rancangan Malaya Pertama since 1957 till now. We are where we are now because of all these planning and policies by our Federal Government. Here are all the policies and planning that were administered splendidly by our good Federal Government.

Where is the charge that our Federal Government was administered by corrupted managers ? There are issues definitely and unhealthy practices but nevertheless anyone who broke the law , will nilly willy have to face the music. We read in newspapers, big fish as well as small fish are all taken to court.
Members of Parliment or State Representative needs money for their constituencies they are managing. Apart from managing these constituencies, people asked favours from them. They need to move around to meet and at times solve people problems there and then. Where do the money comes from ? Nik Aziz admitted, that the resources are limited but the request sky high. Lim Guan Eng said the same thing.
So to solve this problem at times the business communities will help these MP's and Aduns with contributions and in returned their MP's and Aduns will get viable Government or State Projects for them. Example is like the Penang State Government giving Wifi project worth RM 8.4million to a company without calling for tender. That company in return will "dermalah" to Lim Guan Eng state government some money for them to use to prepare for the next PRU 13.
In the political arena, it is difficult to prove corruption. For this reason, there are often unproven rumors about many politicians, sometimes part of a smear campaign..Politicians are placed in apparently compromising positions because of their need to solicit financial contributions for their campaign finance and sometimes to support their constituencies. If they then appear to be acting in the interests of those parties that funded them, it could be considered corruption. Though donations may be coincidental. This is a political dilemma.
Sometimes problem occurs that when the contract was given, the company bidding for it is not credible. Than the whole matter will be exposed as a scandal and the parties involved will have to face the music. When there are elements of fraud, then it will be investigated by MACC and other relevant parties. Sometimes to ensure that no leaks of privy information involving million of ringgit that will implicate state government likewise the Selangor State Government, you have people like Teoh Beng Hock falling from 7th floor of Wisma Ma Salam. Teoh Beng Hock death will cover up any wrong doing of the State Government as there is no reason for MACC Officers to murder him or the Federal Government ?
So this call for reform and weeding out corrupt practices was actually most of the time to undermine the Federal Government to the advantage for the Opposition. Malaysia have not reached the level known as - neologism kleptocracy. Go check this word up..We the people only change the Government if the corruption level reaches neologism kleptocracy. Remember that.
This is an apt statement by our Chief of Justice - Tun Zaki Azmi on judicial matters ;
"There is a small group of vociferous people out there, who go onto the internet and blogs and Facebook and all that and make comments without knowing the proper background. Many are not even lawyers.
It seems to me that for these people, as long as you make a decision against the government and the party in power, then the court is fair and reasonable. The moment you make a decision in favour of the government or the party in power, then the court is biased. But they have forgotten how many election petitions the Barisan Nasional (BN) has lost. They (BN) have lost about three quarters of such petitions, if I'm not mistaken."

The Central Government is in charge. So to ensure that the states and federal work hand in hand, the people either give all to the Opposition or give all to the ruling Government...The current Government cannot be defeated just like that because it has proven time and again that they are an excellent administrator as we have stated earlier. As far as corruption is concerned, it is an individual matter.
The Opposition must paint a horrible picture of the ruling Federal Government so that they could demonstrate that the whole Government are corrupted. Again smear campaigns. If the whole Government is corrupted, then there will not be any single development and for hundred of years Malaysia will remain the same. That is not true.
In Egypt, 30 years ago, there were high un-employement rate, slow growth but the Government is rich and the poverty level is very high.Today after 30 years, still high unemployment rate, high poverty rate and no real development. The government remain still even richer. That is a sign that the whole government is corrupted. neologism kleptocracy. Than the people WILL get rid of the government without any opposition parties to tell them so. No need Anwar..no need PR...The people will do it on their own likewise in Egypt.
What was Malaysia in 1960 and what it is now....? We can even see our own lifestyle 20 years ago and now. Look at the car we are using. Look at the cars and conditions our children are now ? Look at our children schools...Look at our roads, hospitals, post office , etc. There are enough evidence that the people and the government progress together.
In other third world country, like Egypt, the people dont know how much money the Government has and how it is spending it ? In Malaysia just purchase any Malaysia year book and you can verify our Government income and expenditures. Anyway our National Budget is debated and discussed in Dewan Rakyat yearly without fail..The Government even revealed losses when it failed to manage the income properly. Every year we have our Audit Department revealing in details all expenditures of the Government from agencies to ministries and where is the hanky panky stuff ?
So this whole mumbo jumbo about how corrupted our Government is was actually over exgerrated by our Opposition...led by a Tamil movie .. actor...Anwar Ibrahim the Liar...
We Malaysians must NOT put our fate in the hands of scoundrel like Anwar Ibrahim the Liar and a coalition like Pakatan Rakyat.
Untill now, for the Sarawak State Election, Pakatan Rakyat cant even decide on the candidates they want to field for this state election. They are still discussing about it. Imagine , we have just another few more days to go for the state election and PR is still discussing. They should finalise all these stuff one month ago or earlier than that. They cant even agree for a State election ? Why ? Their coalition is just not workable. Do you really think they can run this country ? Hell no !
There is no way for the Opposition to take over Federal Government in the near future and with our Prime Minister revealing one after another the success of his Transformation Program. Slowly but surely our PM is bringing all of us together and paving the way for the next wave of development and progress.
Things are working just nice for Barisan Nasional.
So think twice before voting. We elect ADUN or MP to make live easy for us. Our Opposition is asking us to vote them so that their Parties can take over Malaysia because they think they are better. Pakatan Rakyat cant even form a workable and stable coalition, how the hell they are going to take over the Federal Government ?
Deng Xiaopeng ( a correction pointed out by my reader - Mr Garret).
This Chinese President once said - it doesnt matter whether the cat is white or black but what matters is that the cat must catch the mouse.
As far as we are concerned, since our current Barisan Nasional coalition is work-able, we give them the States and Federal seats with a minority Opposition as a watchdog. Thats all. The people have spoken in 2008 election and BN has hearken to the voice of the people. There are many changes done by BN and in the next election, we should give BN the benefit of the doubt.
Our cat, the Barisan Nasional , catches mouse since 1957 till now.
