Dr Vivian Baloney

This is going to be a short blog but it will most certainly take some time for everyone to ponder over and draw your own individual conclusions.

As for me, this is what I have to say after reading the above article (click to enlarge).


I am especially riled up by the two quotes, highlighted in yellow.

The so-called "solution" is to kick mrbrown out of his column??

By silencing mrbrown, this is "engaging in honest, constructive dialogue"???


PTUI !!!

I wonder how can we (the gov and the citizen) can work together for a solution if the gov dont allow us to express our view freely?

P/S: There an interview on the TV by Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts Dr LEE Boon Yang.

That one, make us double DL

I find this all very contradicting...Just read Dr Lee Boon Yang's response in the paper about all this being the government's 'right of reply'. I guess, if they just kept it at the reply and not the eventual suspension things would have been fine...

(Although, I must say, their reply really showed the lack of understanding of the sentiments at our level.)

it'so contradicting. There is never such a thing in freedom of speech in this sunny(literally) island. Voice-out and you get criticised, reprimanded and what's not.

No need to get emotional. There'll be more of this crap coming our way. If we get upset everytime we come across these ludicrous statements, we'll age very fast. Life is too short deh ....

sunflower: I wonder if there is a copy of the interview on the internet?

Ridzuan: Welcome to your first comment after a couple of trackbacks.

You are absolutely right if the Gahmen just kept it at the reply. To use force to silence someone who disagree is simple cowardly.

Wennie: Welcome to the blog!
Don't the Gahmen realised that the more that pull this type of nonsense, the more they are pulling away from the people?

Meepok: Look, if aging is the price to pay in order for the stoopid and coward gahmen to wake up their bladdy ideas, then I say it would worth every single ounce of grief that they are putting me through.

Yeah, i figured if i'm going to write about it and write the same thing in the comments it'll be kinda redundant...

I'm really just wondering...TODAY was really the one who suspended mr brown(and not mica or something)...Am I missing something? Or did the higher powers have a hand in that decision?

there's actually no such thing as freedom of speech la. Although we kept saying it... otherwise, it would not happen loh. They are making a big fuss out of a single article and by doing so, they are drawing more attention to it which may be a good thing too.

People who usually won't read the columns will suddenly be interested to know what it is about. They would wanna know why it's drawing such a drastic response from those in-charge. So more people will KNOW!!!

Ridzuan: You have a point there. Anyway, glad to have you on board.
Coming back to who have a hand in silencing mrbrown, I tell you, this type of thing no need Gahmen to explicit lay down the instructions one. One nudge or a wink is enough to get the gears moving. Such is the power of the evil force of darkness that mingles amongst us.

ZheBin: The good think with you being in the army soon is that you get to switch off your brain for 2 years. Ahh... 2 years of mental bliss.

Anna: More people will know still nevermind. More people will know and then get more du lan is really stoopid. Unfortunately, this is EXACTLY what the gahmen is doing. Sigh....

Chocolate: Well, according to your logic, it would be my balls coz right now, I feeling damn bang balls over the Gahmen cowardly stupidity.

sunflower: Thanks for the article. Will read it. Perhaps another blog in response? akan datang...
