“When you're left wounded on Afganistan's plains and
the women come out to cut up what remains, Just roll to your rifle
and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur"
“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”
“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.” “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .” “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."
With no millions to show, PAS embarrassed to declare assets By Haspaizi Zain
Thursday, November 10, 2022
Lebai hiding under the garb of religious piety
Malaysiakini : GE15 | PAS does not intend to
have its candidates declare their assets, like PKR and PSM, because PAS
leaders are not wealthy anyway, the party vice-president Mohd Amar Nik
He added making politicians do so will likely bring more harm than good. Amar (above)
said this is a common practice for civil servants and it is unnecessary
to demand the same of PAS leaders unless they hold public office.
one becomes an elected representative, especially when appointed
executive councillor, then an asset declaration is made to the menteri
besar through a form, and this is not published. “Exposing it to the public may have positive aspects but also
negative in today’s world because sometimes people knowing that we have
money and assets brings a lot of negative implications.
“Thus, we take the approach that we need not declare our assets, especially since PAS leaders usually don’t have many assets. “We'd be embarrassed to declare that since other people have millions to their name,” he told reporters in Kota Bharu today. Amar was met after attending an event to hand out social security payments to the self-employed at Kompleks Kota Darul Naim.
Most of PKR’s GE15 candidates have published their asset declarations on the party’s candidate website. Its
deputy president, Rafizi Ramli, declared net assets worth RM18.85
million, most of which were shares in the data analytics company he
PKR president Anwar Ibrahim, who is contesting in Tambun, yesterday declared net assets of RM11.18 million, including an RM9 million house in Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile, Amar, who is also Kelantan deputy MB, said Perikatan Nasional (PN) has a good chance of winning the general election.
said this is based on the wave of political sentiments, which indicates
that PN could form government in Pahang, Perlis, and also at the
federal level. “So we hope this momentum will continue until polling day on Nov 19,” he said.
exranger : hello lebai sir, u should tell the ppl to do not be embarrassed if not rich but u yourself feeling embarrassed, something is wrong, u should be proud for not having a lot of money n willing to declare, now i think u do have millions but giving excuses. Nik aziz didnt have millions, do u mean he should be embarrassed? apa lah lu lebai. lebai lebai juga macam pak pandir
Nuyiko : Asset declaration is not about showing how rich and poor you are. It is for voter to compare before and after, to see whether you made personal profit from elected duty.
Elected MPs and ADUNs are to serve people without making personal financial gain, they are not Lord or Tuan.
But this concept is too deep for Pas to understand. Hadi Awang once said asset declaration is secular socialist idea that’s incompatible with his religion teaching.
apanama is back : Never mind if not millions. Declare how many wives you all have. From there I could figure out your assets.
How to talk to these fellows? Can't even understand what is assets declaration of public officers or public servant/MPs.
He is 'wayang'. I suspect it. Try to escape declaring.
Let me suggest ONE reform here.
Upon taking over the Putrajaya, Harapan need to amend the Election Act to include a clause that ONLY MP and State Assemblyman/woman who HAD DECLARED his/her assets should stand for Elections.
Assets declaration document should be the main supporting document during the nomination time. Should accompany the nomination paper.
Lionking : This guy must be thinking we are fools. Only liars have this kind of attitude. Be proud to declare as it will mean that you guys so honest as you have so little. Don’t declare how many wives you have only your financial assets.
GrayGoose8208 : The stupidity knows no boundaries. That is exactly why you should declare.
