The MCA and JPA scholarship review and appeal yearly special

You would think the MCA youths (overaged, paunches and all) would strategise a better way to show off their updated political skills in this changed political landscape.

Instead,

“MCA Youth secretary-general Datuk Chai Kim Sen said the opposition party was only good at “instigating problems” to curry favour with voters but had so far failed to propose solutions to the annual problem.

“If MCA Youth is a show, then the DAP is its greatest director and actor as well,” he said in a statement today.

Chai said MCA Youth was already busy reviewing scholarship appeals to help “victimised” top students…”

Duh… we all get nostalgic rewinds and replays year after year in the annual JPA scholarship appeals and review saga where students who scored too many A+ were:

1. taught how to fill out forms
2. submit to MCA
3. wait for MCA to review their appeal

Makes one wonder who elected MCA to collect personal data to review the students’ appeal cases.

Also one wonders why can’t the students themselves do the appeal rather than going through the MCA middleman. Like, duh, the students should know how to write and fill out forms and submit it by themselves, right?

Anyways, see extracts from other bystanders and try to figure out some thinking trend of these possible voters below:

You MCA dudes have been ‘handling’ this problem for the past decades without a solution, and you are asking DAP to come up with one? Crazy. (Chan Siang Yen)

What a stupid statement. In a Good government, reviews should NOT EVEN be needed! (EJ)

This PSD and scholarship hiccup is nothing new. It is an annual hiccup – a hiccup /laughing stock which MCA will never be able to overcome. What can the Chinese community hope from MCA? (LA Tan)

MCA, opposition’s role is not to shut up, but to watch and ensure you guys in the ruling party do your work. Busy reviewing? You should be making sure that those cases shouldn’t have happen in the first place. (Danny)

After so many years still fixing in progress? No wonder it is not relevant whether you guys are in cabinet or not? (amino suckers)

MCA has been using people’s emotion for publicity and for its own political mileage. (Gilbert Tan)

I for one am sick of this whole yearly wayang every year where our smartest kids think they deserve a scholarship (based totally on the unholistic evaluation of a single exam) while the government and opposition spar over whether they should get it or not and the rakyat like me fund this whole thing with our tax money without getting a tangible return! (Youdonotknow)

To do next GE or how to choose your Cabinet Ministers of Malaysia

Had a crazy brainwave after a juicy delicious pear from China (China boleh! Except in football, hehehe).

Ok, we already have a 3 party system in place (3rd party is still wobbly but its there). Shall we the rakyat go another step to test the ability of 1Malaysia to survive the New Economy of 2020?

To step up is so simple. We just need to practice by doing the things we do daily… Yup, just by reading and listening to the news – newspapers, new media, blogs, radio news, talkshows. And, by talking to neighbours, friends at the kopitiam, while shooting pool, fishing, after watching footie, etc.

Then we put ourselves to the test at General Election….. just tick the fella with the most capacity/ability to be a policy making Minister in the Cabinet of Malaysia Government. (regardless of whether they’re from UMNO, MCA, MIC, PKR, DAP, PAS, etc)

You see, every time we voted for a Member of Parliament, indirectly we voted also for a potential Minister of the Cabinet – It is from the pool of Member of Parliaments that the Prime Minister has to choose his team members to sit in the Minister seat.

So, if you’ve ticked the vote box for a silly guy who will raise his toy keris or you’ve voted for an Ah Beng who can’t speak our national language, or a well dressed bumpkin who have absolutely no idea what is national policymaking…. Don’t blame them the stupid ministers for not doing their job. They just weren’t equipped to do ministerial work – they are enjoying the honours of sitting in a nice office because you’ve elevated them into that point of authority to mess up your country’s wealth, education, health and future direction.

Yup, in modern Malaysia, we the voters have voted always for a pool of ministers by elevating the ill-equipped to positions of authority by way of the Peter Principle. (The Peter Principle is the principle that “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.”)

Now, ain’t that a revelation for us dumb dumb voters?

Poor Najib Tun Razak, how now to get the New Economic Model going before the androids consume our employment market?

(Ta…I’m going back for more pears and FIFA finals footie winner analysis.)

Strange malaise of the literate uneducated and more…

Fren: Hey, do you know how to contact MCA Michael Chong?

BananaC: Why? You want his service ka?

Fren: Not me lar, my fren wants to ask Michael to help.

BananaC: Help what?

Fren: He wants to complain about another fren who ate his money in a business deal.

BananaC: Aiya… this is a criminal case lar, just tell your fren to file police report.

Fren: Seek Michael Chong faster, mah.

BananaC: File police report yourself is faster. Whaffor your fren want to use Michael Chong as a middle man. If your fren dunno how to read and write, then he got reason go get Michael Chong to file a report in the newspaper and take publicity photo appear in standard pose with the complaint letter.

Fren: My fren is a doctor, you know!

BananaC: How come a doctor also need to get things done via Michael Chong? Doctor can read and write what! Maybe your doctor fren cheated through school exam or too damn lazy to fill complaint form or follow legal recourse ka?

Fren: We Chinese used to this sort of service, what.

BananaC: You mean we Chinese are such dependency syndrome people who even though after going through education or university, can read and write but still need to run to Michael Chong to sort out our private lives grievances?

Fren: Sure ma.

BananaC: No wonder MCA cannot become political party, you all conditioned MCA psychologically to be stuck in the era of the many academically unschooled.

Fren: We never see MCA do politics. They like to focus do community complaints bureau service like Michael Chong, lar. Anyway, MCA never demonstrated they can do national politics.

BananaC: Tell your doctor fren to join MCA to enjoy more close relationship with Michael Chong. Wey, maybe your fren can get to brush shoulders with the MCA big brothers also.

Fren: You think he don’t want, ah? He joined many years but never even get invitation letter to any political training!
