Tun Dr.Mahathir-What's exactly on your mind?

I think most of us Malaysians are getting sick of the constant whining and needling of the former PM of his anointed and appointed successor, Abdullah Hj.Ahmad Badawi.

I mean, let's face it, no one's perfect! Not even the Tun or any other humanbeing on the face of the planet!

Yes, we agreed that Abdullah Badawi is not the best there is in Malaysia and he has his faults and weaknesses but then again, hello!...in case you forgot! You are the one who appointed him in the first place! We , citizens of Malaysia had nothing to do with it!

You, being the Supreme Ruler of this land, kept tabs on everyone of your Cabinet Ministers and Mr.Nice Guy was the one who looked the rosiest of them all at that time to you because you looked for his plus points and compared to the rest of the 'Ya Tuan' gang, Mr.Nice Guy came out tops in your selection!

So, after he took over, things started coming apart. All those last minute projects of yours were getting unravelled one by one and it doesn't please you.

Well, dear Tun, sometimes one cannot have it all going one's way all the time without hiccups and glitches, spoiling whatever plans you had in place. That's life and you sure would know it.

Abdullah Badawi may be a 'jelly belly' unlike you who are known for your 'Mahathirism'. Yes, the man is sort of sluggish in his ways and takes an awfully long time to make any decisions.

I am not a fan of Abdullah Badawi but hey...he's the Prime Minister of Malaysia; thanks to you!
As a citizen who voted for the BN last election, I do have a say in what's going on in this nation to which I and 25 million Malaysians belong!

All these constant whining and needling of yours is destabilizing this country where the office of the Prime Minister of the Government of Malaysia no longer commands the awe and respect of most Malaysians.

Is this what you want? Surely you do not want to see this nation fall apart and all the 22 long years where you ruled over us as it suited you.

Abdullah Badawi needs your support and guidance. He is already facing tremendous challenges in eradication corruption and nepotism. No one can be free from those two maladies when in power.

So, instead of you sniping at his heels , why can't you help Abdullah Badawi eliminate the cancerous ministers and high officials from further corroding the pillars of this government's foundation?

You could also help out the poor and needy of our nation by seeing to it that more opportunities are opened to them and that the bright sparks of this nation especially our gifted young Malaysian students are given scholarships and educational grants from a foundation that bears your name!

Yayasan Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. Now that would be a fitting completion to your career as one of our nation's Prime Minister.

I am sure that most of us would like to see normalcy return to our country. You can certainly see to it that this happens.

Last but not least, a timely phrase I coined up for all.

'Through teamwork we strive ; higher productivity we'll thrive!'

Peace be upon all of us. Ameen.
