politics

law in Malaysia

This will be very short as I have picked this up, and I can’t guarantee that I am correct.  But basically:

There is common law, as adopted from Britain, as with most countries that Britain colonised.

Then there is statutory law, legislation made by parliaments.

And in addition to the above, Muslims also come under Sharia law.  At present, Sharia law is not applied to non-Muslims.

Malaysia has a constitution which you can find online in English. It is reasonably short and quite easy to read.

My Brexit experience

Screenshot_2016-06-24-12-34-39

At 12.34PM in Malaysia

This was one of the very few times in my life when my vote actually was worthwhile.  I had already voted by post a couple of weeks before.

I guess at the moment there is a seven hour time difference between Malaysia and the UK.  I woke up around 5.30AM and immediately checked the news on the Internet.  It seems Nigel Farage had already conceded defeat although the counting had only just begun.  Te vote was looking like a win for Remain.

So I just got on with my morning thinking that was the end of it.  Around midday I thought I would just look at the news, and commiserate, and then I found that actually the tables had been turned, and Leave was winning! The BBC was predicting a win! I was at Starbucks with the Live BBC page on my phone, hoping the battery would last, and watching as the results came in.  The page was telling me that Leave would win with 1,500,000 more votes. And this number kept on decreasing as the votes were counted.  And then it was over, and Leave had won!

The UK is finally free from the dictatorship in Brussels. And the major political parties, the mass media, multi-national corporations, international banks, the 1%, globalists, Obama, etc. had lost, and the people had won.

It’s no surprise that the above-mentioned delivered what their fear campaign had promised – since they control the markets – and the markets and pound went down.  But we’ve started on the road to freedom – the first positive step in that direction for a while.   Now people in other EU countries are demanding referenda.  Britain may be helping to free Europe.

Current podcasts

I like to listen to podcasts while doing something else – gardening, cooking, exercising.  I cover a number of topics – politics, technology, films, health, current affairs, history, German etc. Here are most of the podcasts I currently keep up with:

Penang and other podcasts – update March 2014

I thought I would write about podcasts I listen to at the moment.  Podcasts are very efficient for me, as I can listen and do something else at the same time. If I am driving by myself, exercising in the gym, gardening, doing housework, shopping, climbing Penang Hill…

So far I have only found one Penang podcast, but it is very old:

http://www.podfeed.net/episodes.asp?id=3640&ct=1

and listening to his podcast he says there are only ten Malaysian podcasters.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find them.

——————————–

Also I listen to podcasts from around the world:

http://www.redicecreations.com/radio/nonsubscriber.php Red Ice Radio is broadcast out of Sweden and Hendrick covers a really diverse range of topics, mostly interviewing experts in their fields. In English.

http://www.corbettreport.com/?i=Interviews The Corbett Report is from Japan, although Mr. Corbett is Canadian, and again covers a broad range of topics, mostly by interviews, but also some discussion panels etc. In English, although James briefly spoke Japanese (quite well I thought) once, that I heard.

http://www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.com/2014-archives.html Vinny broadcasts out of New Zealand and mostly interviews people on a range of topics.

http://www.thecrowhouse.com/radio.html Max broadcasts from Australia mainly on regaining our freedom, peacefully and spiritually.

http://fairdinkumradio.com/ is also broadcast out of Australia, and  covers who has taken and freedom, and how to get it back.

http://www.21stcenturyradio.com/audioarchives/2014/index.html  Broadcast out of Baltimore, U.S.A. Mostly interviews with a humourous approach, less political, more on health, spirituality, rock stars of the past…

http://vitalitycapsules.com/truth-files Dr. Daniels broadcasts from Panama, having escaped the clutches of the American Medical Association in the U.S., it seems. She tells the truth about pharmaceuticals, vaccines etc. In English.

http://www.pamkilleen.com/multimedia-content-february-2013-present-1/ Pam broadcasts from Canada on health issues.

http://www.wvfoundations.org/id3.html Broadcast from the U.S. Caucasian oriented. Topics of interest to me are history of rock groups or singers, history as not told in films, school history books etc.

http://republicbroadcasting.org/  Subscription based, out of the U.S.

http://thecommonsenseshow.com/category/radio-archives/  Out of the U.S., from Republic Broadcasting – but he only posts a few of his podcasts on his site.  Often about what is happening in the U.S. – implementation of Agenda 21 etc.

http://www.democracynow.org/shows  Out of the U.S. Really too politically correct for me, but often the second part of the show covers one particular topic – I enjoyed the interview with Oliver Stone, for example. A shorter version is also published in Spanish.

http://blog.ucadia.com/ Frank broadcasts from Australia on his political / social model.

http://thesyncbook.com/  From the U.S., I think.  I just found this, and can’t yet classify it in my mind.

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/universalawareness – Out of the UK – nothing broadcast recently, but archives are often on using the real law – not statute law – to keep your freedom.

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/americanfreepress – The Spingola Zone – Deanna Spingola is pretty fearless in telling you more or less the opposite of what the media, education and history has tried to make us think, and then backing up what she says.

For a great many years I was downloading to my computer, and then transferring the mp3’s over to my phone by either SD card or wi-fi. This was so I kept a copy.  But I almost never went back to listen to older podcasts. So recently I download directly to my phone, and then play and manage the podcasts using Podkicker.  Unfortunately it can’t find all the podcasts I want using Podkicker, so I have to download using the web on the phone for some, and play them with another app. But for the podcasts it does find it is great. And it’s much easier to listen to the podcast soon after it is posted.  Reading the comments, the free version is better than the Pro version – which currently costs $1.

Finally, for RM5 you can buy an earphone / microphone in Daiso – Gurney Plaza, Gurney Paragon, Queensbay Mall.  It’s not stereo, but for podcasts you don’t need stereo – giving you one ear with which to hear what’s going on in your surroundings, which is safer if you are out.  And you can use it for phone calls with the microphone, although to dial or answer a call you’ll have to use your phone itself.

But don’t buy them all – I regularly break earsets – any brand, not just these ones – as I get them caught on things, and they can take only so many hard tugs.  So they only last me six months, and I have to buy another. A replacement, with the mike on the lead, from the phone manufacturer when I asked was close to RM100.

What they want you to think – government, mass media, education system

President Eisenhower warned of a conspiracy as he was leaving office – a conspiracy involving the military industrial complex. Which is perhaps more accurately named now the Intelligence Military Academic Industrial Media complex, or so I have heard.  President Kennedy, not long before he was assassinated, also warned of a conspiracy against the people in a famous speech. Decades later the legacy media still says nothing, but the new media gives plenty of coverage to what is happening behind the scenes.

Then, the CIA told the media and movie industry to label anything the Intelligence Military Academic Industrial Media complex does not want said with the specific words, “conspiracy theory”.  Which is why you hear that expression so often.

So this is what the Intelligence Military Academic Industrial Media complex wants you to think. Consider who benefits if you believe:

government is necessary
taxes are necessary
central banks are government owned
governments create money
interest on debt is normal and useful
school is education
history is as we were taught in school and in films
history just, sort of, happens
the media tells the truth
drugs being illegal reduces damage to society
moslem radicals are the terrorists
spray cans caused ozone holes
global warming is real, mankind caused it, and is a huge threat
chemtrails are contrails
we are the cause of the world’s problems
fracking is a good idea
vaccinations are good
fluoride is good
cancer is cured by radiation and chemicals
pharmaceuticals cure sickness
mercury as tooth fillings is OK
teeth can’t repair themselves
allopathic medicine is good
cholesterol and fat are bad
airport full body scanners are harmless
GM is good
sunshine is bad
sun block chemicals are good
anything about AIDS

By the way, the co2 from the volcano near iceland in 2010 released more than all the co2 of all human activity in recorded history – and the world still cooled.

Tomato bubble , a U.S. web site came up with this list – unfortunately I had to edit this slightly due to limitations of free speech.

* America’s Constitution is outdated.
* Karl Marx was a great philosopher.
* The Civil War was about slavery.
* FDR’s New Deal saved America.
* Germany started 2 World Wars.
* Picasso was the greatest artist.
* Einstein was the smartest man who ever walked the face of the Earth.
* Senator Joe McCarthy was evil.
* Martin Luther King was a Saint.
* Capitalism is about greed and socialism is about charity.
* Men and women are the same.
* There is no such thing as race.
* Man ‘evolved’ from ocean scum.
* Global Warming is a proven fact.
* There are no government conspiracies.
* Guns and religion are evil.

Feedback to MPPP – Penang Island Municipal Council – on their budget

I found the following information in the Buletin Mutiara:

Until the 10th July you can give feedback to MPPP on how they will spend their budget. You can do this online, by finding the page here: http://www.mppp.gov.my/en/home or directly to the survey here.

Alternatively you can email suhaida@mppp.gov.my or call 04-2592120.

They say all input will be private and confidential.

This is the first time I recall any government actually asking me how they should spend my money. I am impressed.

They are asking with regards to these topics:

  • Municipal Council of Penang Island Project
  • Parking Facilities
  • Public Facilities
  • Persons with Disabilities Facilities
  • Public Facilities By Gender
  • Other Areas (other than above)

I wrote the following:

  • -Bicycle paths separated from motorised traffic
  • -Footpaths in good repair – especially along Northam Road to the E & O
  • -Pedestrian crossing markings on roads – and proper education so drivers understand they should stop for pedestrians.
  • -Make it possible to swim in the sea again – reduce pollution and introduce turtles to eat jellyfish
  • -Proper road and lane markings / Green Lane is international standard, Northam Road is good. Jalan Tanjong Bungah is a disgrace.
  • -Advance notice on roads with road works so drivers can take alternative routes rather than be stuck in jams.

I will probably think of more later.
