Rockybru, Marina and the other so-called solidarity bloggers,
Why only blame Badawi for all our problems? What about the rest in UMNO including Najib, his Deputy Prime Minister, and other Pak Turut Ministers. The rot, rampant corruption and abuse of power in the so-called Ketuanan Melayu Government started long ago, and we have only just felt the effects of that malaise under the incompetent Badawi.
The meluat approach is not the way to bring about change. It is only for those who are very comfortable with the status quo or have “balas balik” on their mind. My colleagues like Raja Petra, Haris Ibrahim and others like me have enough stamina and commitment to stay the course. Don’t give up the fight for change. —Din Merican
I blame one man for our woes. I blame the Prime Minister. Abdullah Badawi should stop behaving like a wager at a horse race. Stop gambling with our future as a nation. Revive our dwindling economy. Bring back the top economists to take charge of our economy instead of leaving it to bankers, corporate leaders, politicians, and the people at Khazanah. And stop politicizing Altantuya, sodomy, statutory declarations, the judiciary, the police, and the people’s wellbeing.
You are there to do a job, so let’s see you start doing it.
Do you want to follow Wong Chun Wai’s advice(below) or fight for change? My choice is clear. How about you? I suggest you think before you decide.–Din Merican

I think the majority of us are pretty sick and tired over the events of the past few days. There is only so much lies one can take. We should not let ourselves to be used, or led to believe to anything, by these power crazy politicians. It doesn’t matter whether they want to grab power or stay in power, the bottom line is that we all have lives to lead. Not lies to lead. There are more urgent matters that require our attention. At least for the next 24 hours, let’s spend our day well without any discussion about anal sex and that unbelievable P.Balasubramaniam, forget the politicians who only use us to fulfill their selfish ambitions. We have been taken in by all these allegations and counter allegations of sodomy, I think we have lost sight of what we are as Malaysians. Marina Mahathir share the same thoughts. Ong Hock Chuan and Khoo Kay Peng also want bloggers to make some loud noise! Even blogger-politician Jeff Ooi is pissed off. Rocky Bru is also on strike! Fellow bloggers are marking the 100th day of the March 8 elections with a gathering. I urge them to post their disgust at our politicians and ignore all these press statements, press conferences and their lies, excuses and explanations for the next 24 hours. Readers, share your feelings at the state of our politics in solidarity.
Bravo, Susan. I agree with you: * SUSAN LOONE’s blog *
This is certainly not the time to go on strike. Malaysia is evolving and everyone wants to be a part of it, no matter how big or small our role is. No matter how far or near we are.
Only cowards go on strike at such an important point in our collective history.
Oh, wait. They are either cowards or hypocrites,to go on strike when things are not going as they wish for the politicians they love.
But then, as you can see, those advocating a strike in the blogsphere are all the same – mainstream -mindset. Can you blame people who have been comfortable all their lives now suddenly facing the challenge of their lives?
I can tolerate ‘cowards’ to a certain extent, but ‘hypocrites’?
The STAR newspaper has gleefully published a story on the subject as if it is representative of the blogsphere. PLEASE DO NOT INSULT US!
This is the time when our collective voices and pressures can help the truth to surface. It is so important that the truth surface now. Or, else, another 50 years of garbage will be ours to keep .
This is really the time to fight on.
