Penang running out of money?

Penang running out of money? Why not just donate the land like other places or allow them to rent it at low cost?

Tokong says if you are interested to buy, please call him and he give you good price below commercial market value.

Twenty acres of land in mainland Penang have been set aside to build non-Muslim religious places of worship, said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Non-Muslim organisations are offered to buy the plots of land from the state government, he added.

Lim said the leasehold land in Bagan, Butterworth, have been demarcated into 32 lots of different sizes for the purpose.

Lim said the land will not cost as much as commercial lots since its purpose was to build places of worship.

Those interested are advised to write officially to him or state executive councilor Lim Hock Seng, who is the state assembly-person for the area where the plots are located.

    About love and hate.

    Nobody talks about love these days. STL is all about hate for the DAP. The bloke using the name Ang Tao Peng in here hates everybody. And me hating “Ang”? Well, at the least, disliking him him hell of a lot. Because he does not respect the Constitution of the country.

    There should be love and unity, respect for one another a lot in this country. But for love and respect to exist and grow in a multi-racial country, everybody must respect the Constitution. It’s the highest set of laws from which all other laws emanate. Love for the country must be based on respect for the Constitution. Respect for one another grows out of respect for the Constitution. There should be endless campaigns to get people to fully understand and respect the Constitution.

    Under Najib’s rule, there has not been much talk about love, mutual respect and national unity. One does not hear about unity through language that even Beijing tries to inculcate among the mainland Chinese by enforcing the use of Mandarin; in South China, they demonstrated against it in Canton, Hong Kong etc a few years ago. In Malaysia where the National Language is Bahasa Melayu, Najib gave financial assistance to Chinese schools which want Mandarin as the medium of instruction. There are many other divisive issues facing the country. The 1MDB scandal, the GST which hit hard the low income populace are among them.

    One wonders when national unity will come about in this country. Love for country is nationalism. We should now be talking about patriotism – willingness to sacrifice for love of country – instead of nationalism which, even that, hardly exists.

      There’s so much political shit around where got time or space for campaigns on national unity, respect for the Constitution, nationalism and patriotism.

      Wonder if the situation will change a lot when Najib is no more PM.

        As Kim Jong Nam’s assassination takes precedence, domestic politics has retreated to the background, of late. The killing has successfully diverted the public’s attention from the fact that the country’s politics is about to move into a crucial phase.

        Umno sent the minister in charge of religious affairs, Jamil Khir Baharom, to PAS’ rally in support of RUU355 on Feb 18, showing that the government was indeed serious about taking over PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang’s shariah law amendment bill.

        The Dewan Rakyat will resume its session on Monday (March 6) but so far we still do not have the details of the proposed amendments. This has invariably caused the local non-Muslim community and religious organisations to be worried.

        Although both PAS and Umno have promised that the amendments will have nothing to do with hudud and that the rights of non-Muslims will not be violated, RUU355 nevertheless acknowledges the country’s dual criminal and judicial systems, and will inevitably have a negative influence on national solidarity.

        The cooperation between Umno and PAS over the proposed amendments to the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965, or Act 355, is a kind of “political deal” where both sides get what they want: Umno’s administration remains unchallenged, and PAS’ ultimate religious objectives are fulfilled.

        Such a deal illustrates the fact that the country’s politics has entered a new phase where political parties only worry about their own interests, often at the expense of the country’s future.

        As a matter of fact, Umno and PAS are not the only parties engaging in such politics; the opposition is doing the same.

        This is narrow-minded politics, and is outright disappointing, and it is the main reason for the political apathy among more and more Malaysians.

        A study shows that only 13% of young Chinese Malaysians aged between 21 and 29 have registered themselves as voters. This compares with 80% of Malays in the same age bracket.

        For all these years, Malaysian politics has been a frustrating repetition of a war of words and political gimmicks.

        For example, Dr Mahathir Mohamad slammed BR1M as a form of corruption but later changed his mind. Prime Minister Najib Razak consequently called the former prime minister “U-turn champion”.

        Mahathir also said DAP had requested the post of deputy prime minister (DPM) if the opposition were to win the next general election. He later said it was MCA, not DAP, that had previously wanted the DPM’s post. So, Najib called Mahathir a liar.

        Former minister Zaid Ibrahim, who has just joined DAP, claimed that Mahathir was the de facto leader of the opposition pact, which DAP disagreed, while Najib tweeted that Lim Kit Siang was the actual de facto leader.

        All these wars of words simply prove that our politicians are devoid of new progressive political ideas, and are not going to take the country out of the current doldrums now or in the future.

        We have also seen opposition leaders demonizing Chinese investments. Many Malaysians will be out of jobs if investors stay away.

        The opposition has also failed to introduce new policies and democratic philosophies. They are not going anywhere far if they cannot come up with anything more positive.

        Ringgit depreciation

        Meanwhile, government leaders can no longer bask in feeling good, completely ignorant of our problems.

        Following the depreciation of the ringgit and recent petrol price hike, the CPI rose 3.2% in January. While Malaysians in general feel the pinch, our ministers only see the rosy picture of a 4.5% GDP growth in the last quarter of 2016.

        Government statistics show 8,277,391 individuals had applied for BR1M, but, this is not something we should take pride in. It only shows that many in this country are still making very little every month.

        With the ringgit continuously on the slide, we are getting further and further from the ultimate goal of a high-income nation. It is imperative that the government come up with strategies to stabilise the ringgit against other major currencies.

        Recently, the former president of the Malaysian Economic Association, Mohd Sheriff Mohd Kassim, had proposed a trimming of the civil service in order to shrink the budgetary deficit, but the suggestion was largely ignored by the government.

        Without crushing old politics and establishing new ones, this country will continue to stay stagnant forever.

          “only 13% of young Chinese Malaysians aged between 21 and 29 have registered themselves as voters. This compares with 80% of Malays in the same age bracket.”

          It should be the job of the Umno Youth Chief, that Okspod bloke who years ago announced his plan to be PM by 40 – about this time.

          But he has been erratic in his political stand on certain issues, raising questions on his mental stability. As such, how to expect him to organize publicity programmes designed to get Malay youths to register as voters.

          I don’t mind it, though. Better chances for the Opposition team to topple Najib at Pru14.

        • a says:

          Sure Najib and his government would ignore the former president of the Malaysian Economic Association, Mohd Sheriff Mohd Kassim’s proposal on trimming the civil service in order to shrink the budgetary deficit.

          Who among them cares about the budget deficit? Najib justsees the number of votes for him in the civil service – those with steady jobs, guaranteed tenure, reasonable amount of food on the table every day.

          And the head of the Civil Service, the Chief Secretary to the Government – he, a non-Malay, was chosen over the heads of a few others who were Malays, because of the expected unquestionable loyalty to the boss.

          And indeed he has been loyal. Anything Najib wants, Najib gets. Anything Rosmah wants, Rosmah gets. Including use of the executive jet. RM90 mill lease of an executive jet for her to go to Turkey when the government jet was on maintenance service.

          The only way to lessen the problems is to vote Najib out at Pru14.

            “he, a non-Malay, was chosen over the heads of a few others who were Malays”

            You mean to insist “Malay” is some kind of :qualification”?!

            Well, that would possibly be highly questionable a contention.

            Considering the “supremacist” ones still do not meet the minimal standard for intelligence, are noisy and rowdy little chickenshit racist and fascist, and fool-time Mugabe Mahitler-bred free dedak eating lazy worthless and useless rentseeker retard monkeys.

            I think you are rather bad at using your Scrabble letters for Manglish!

            Or maybe you are cursed with getting bad letters…

            Whatever you are doing, you seem to be trying to produce a strange tongue, a rojak of many borrowed speaks…

            Work hard on a real language lah!

            Even try Bahasa Indon.

            Even if it is very hard work for a pig stupid and pig lazy Mugabe Mahitler-bred rentseeker retard monkey!

            “laut China Selatan”

            Aiyaah!

            What kind of fcuking chickenshit “supremacist” are you lah?!

            Find your own speak for “Komen” or spell it right in the original “Comment”. Are you trying to fcuk up another language?

            And for crying out laut “laut China Selatan” is North Sarawak Sea lah!

            You carry on like this, and we will have to crawl all the time to China, begging songkok in paw, kowtow to their imperial majesties!

      Amazing how devoid of content, originality, substance, genuine effort, honesty and common decency a pig stupid and pig lazy Mugabe Mahitler-bred rentseeker retard monkey can be!

      This pigswill is nothing but a rehash and recycling of the same old same old limited phrases of either badly cobbled or copied junk and trash from the stock collection of our pig dumb moron specimen from Mugathir’s remaining stragglers of public-funded dedak-fed racist and fascist running pig monkeys!

      Longkang imbecile glorification of “patriotism” is not just “the last refuge of a scoundrel” but is also “the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reason” as per Johnson, and Russell.

      This is soapbox grandstanding at its most appalling.

      It may appeal to the great unwashed longkang pondlife who love wearing white or red head bands and underwear made from a flag, at the drop of a stolen hat have to go into that over-emotional self-shagging, frothing at the mouth all the pigs’ dinner about “nation, love, patriotism”, sacrifice… and all the rest of the vocabulary of those of society rejects whom we should send packing off to war so that we can get rid of the useless and worthless abd grossly embarrassing piles of pig manure as a favour to civilisation and humanity.

      I vote Mugabe Mahitler Mo the general to lead our rentseekers onward into battle.

      Nothing like a glorious end to an inglorious basterd!

      “And me hating “Ang”? ”

      Don’t flatter yourself or trouble yourself with that!

      I could care less either way if a bucket of patriotic and nationalistic pig shit with a verbal shagger’s understanding of the “constitution” “hates” or “loves” me!

      • Ang Tao Peng says:

        “Anonymous” aka “a” for arseh*le, “Dumber-than-DAP” DAP Dumb, etc etc nicksfor all his effort condemning one and all here, remains the champion of all those here with schizophrenic delusion of grandeur (if his lover Murtabak Chan hasn’t finally kicked the bucket).

        “Anonymous” grandly appointed himself the “moderator” here, and sold himself as the best friend STL never had and doesn’t want, boasting that his grand support for STL went back a long way. He implied that he and STL were close buddies and he has “special rights” to do his schizophrenic delusional “almighty” lording over others here because of that “special relationship” which I have never read STL ever mentioned.

        Of course, all here know about the incessant recycling of the same old same old cut n paste garbage delight of “Anonymous” and recognise him as a pig stupid and pig lazy chickenshit “supremacist” Mugabe Mahitler-bred rentseeker retard monkey.

        For all his desperation to look important and feel “power” here, STL rewarded “Anonymous” for all his grovelling and ar se licking loyalty and “service” with a number of articles shooting down the idol and rentseeker emperor of “Anonymous” Mad Mugabe Mahitler Mo, in the most unflattering manner, short of telling the decrepit corrupt racist and fascist pharaoh to die soon!

        Is that a huge laugh or is that a huge laugh?!

        Like for Mugabe Mahitler who has been whacked across his crocskin snake cheek, our “Anonymous” has also been soundly whacked. Like a Malaysian pirate copy of Mugathir who still has the delusion that Malaysia loves him, our resident comic moron has the grand delusion that he is all popular in STL!

        Both Mugathir and our “Anonymous” have no sense of shame, have ultra-thick hide, and have the crass delusion of grandeur, still strutting around grandly like little longkang royalty, while all around think of them as insane and irrelevant entities!

        I am not running down “Anonymous” at all. For without this piece of longkang racist and fascist pig excrement, we have very little to laugh riotously at here, and I have few rentseeker monkeys to spit on.

        So keep up your great work here “Anonymous”, without you, the rentseekers’ emperor Mugabe Mahitler cannot go down fast enough!

        More rubbish gibberisg guttural from your pig mouth, and more insane garbage recycling, please!

            It is not for that.

            But for your schizo delusion that you own the board and can boss people around, telling them, including STL what they can or cannot say.

            As for the “whack” delusion, you cannot match me in a thousand light years my content, wit, style, ability to articulate and communicate effectively.
