A HISTORICAL DAY - 13 MAY 2008 - MALAYSIANS FREE AT LAST
A lot of people will say 13th is a very bad and UNLUCKY number and I do agree with all of you. Take a look at most buildings, there is never a 13th Floor. But there is a difference, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is very fond of 13, his cars are all number 13, and one can realise that he chose 13 February 2008 to declare the dissolution of Parliament and even the previous time he did the same. But of late, 13 also seems to affect him in a bad way. The UMNO and Barisan Nasional had a disastrous defeat during the recently concluded general elections and were able to form the federal government with a slim majority which can be cracked very easily if not taken care of. Its time PM Abdullah rethink about his "13".
It will always be remembered that 13 May 1969 - the day that racial riots had taken this plural Malaysian society by storm and with it came the NEP and bumiputra status, which most Malaysians are still very unhappy about.
BUT Malaysians fail to realise that to make MALAYSIA PROUD we need to make 13 May 2008 a historical day when we are able to THROW OUT this present uncaring, ineffective, inefficient and corrupt Barisan Nasional government by TOPPLING them by 'buying' their own Members of Parliament (tick for tack or UMNO style) and forming a NEW OPPOSITION GOVERNMENT which will be for Malaysia for Malaysians.
Then, we will always remember 13 th May - a historical day for FREEDOM and there is no more FEAR and need not fear about 13 May 1969 anymore while it will only be history and no longer a sensitive issue.
Let's work towards this goal.
