Bapa Pembaziran - Abdullah Badawi

Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj is known as this nation's Bapa Kemerdekaan @ Father of Independence.

No one denies the fact that the late Tunku did spearhead the seeking of Independence for this nation from continuous colonialization by the British Empire.

He may not have been perfect in his character as being known to be fond of horse racing and other vices but still, one must pay respect to the memory of the late Tunku as being amongst those who have done so much for this nation.

Tunku was also responsible for cutting off Singapore from our federation but then circumstances back then forced him to do that. Lee Kuan Yew was asking exactly what Lim Kit Siang and company are seeking for - the abolishment of Malay rights, which will render them powerless in Malaysia.

Tun Abdul Razak who took over from Tunku Abdul Rahman was known as Bapa Pembangunan @ Father of Development.

He saw to it that Malaysia slowly transformed from being a backward agricultural based young nation to be one where development has been taking place , changing our country into a better place to live.

He was known to be a thrifty Prime Minister and lived a frugal life and not known to be extravagant in his lifestyle even though he could if he had wanted to splurge on all the fine things in life.

Tun Abdul Razak deserves to be remembered for his bringing development to the rural areas and for setting into place the nation's major infrastructures and helping the people to seek a reasonable living.

Then came Tun Hussein Onn, who became Malaysia's 3rd Prime Minister when Tun Razak passed away in London during treatment.

Tun Hussein Onn is known as Bapa Perpaduan @ Father of Unity amongst Malaysians.

Tun Hussein is not known for any hanky panky in his administration and there was not much scandals during his rule over Malaysia.

He is related to UMNO's founder , Dato Onn bin Jaafar and is now being represented by his son, Dato Seri Hishamudin Tun Hussein Onn, who has been appointed as the Education Minister of Malaysia.

Seems like dynasties do occur in our times. Well, it's unavoidable.

Our fourth Prime Minister and the longest serving one is the legendary kick ass Prime Minister who put this nation on the map by his steering the country to be one of the world's fastest growing nation as far as its economy is concerned.

Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad is known as Bapa Pemodenan @ Father of Modernization.

During his 22 long years of being the ruler of this country, he brought forth Malaysia to be amongst Asia's most dynamic nation and turned this country into the dynamo it is today.

He may be remembered as the most autocratic ruler who ever became this nation's Prime Minister and to this date he continues to speak out against the West and Israel.

He brought prosperity to the nation and has strengthened the Malays position in government especially UMNO which continues to be the key player in Malaysia's coalition BN government.

After Mahathir's time, comes the most sickening chap who has splurged like its nobody's business as far as the taxpayers money is concerned.

Behold, the couldn't care less , rhetoric spewing, spend as you please Prime squanderer of them all, the one and only Imam Hadhari a.k.a Abdullah Badawi, whom I label as Bapa Pembaziran @ Father of Extravaganza!

Yes, this is the most fitting title for one who thinks nothing of burning RM95,000,000.00 of taxpayers money to send to space a doctor under the guise of being an astronaut when in reality this nation has much more better things to spend so much of that now gone to waste precious funds just to feed his enormous ego and his ass kissing cabinet who fawn over him as if he is this nation's deliverer when in fact he is this nation's worst premier for all time.

Don't you agree?

Saya setuju Paklah sebagai bapa pembaziran, tapi tak setuju bila program Angkasawan dianggap membazir.

Yang paling membazir ialah bila dia perkenalkan "Islam Hadhari" apabila ia menyelirukan, maka dia pula adakan kempen penerangan bagi istilah yang salah diberikan itu.

Assalamualaikum Cikgu 'raudhah'.

A nation such as our's needs to put things in the proper perspectives and when it comes to spending the resources of this country, the government ought to take into consideration the general needs of the population before embarking on such lofty aspirations such as being a space exploring nation.

I am not saying that we shouldn't delve into space missions etc..but first things first.

Has our nation developed in total to the stage that we can now go splurging on such expensive benefits for some , heartaches for the many millions of needy Malaysians at this time?

The human ego is truly well and alive in Putrajaya.

Just to be able to trumpet to all that Malaysia 'Boleh', our nation's leaders starting with Mahathir ventured into a string of record breaking enterprises just to get our names into the Book of Records.

Knowing that many of those records won't make it into the Guinness Book of World Records, the ever attention seeking megalomaniacs we have running riot in Putrajaya, are just so happy to get their pursuits be immortalized in the Malaysian Book of Records!

Mahathir started the ball rolling and Abdullah Badawi is only too happy to kick the ball a notch firther by such harebrained space missions!

Does sending a doctor into space as a passenger merit this nation to be lulled into trumpeting that hello...we now have a bloody astronaut?

Hell yeah! Sometimes, nations get into the 'shorties syndrome'.

They try to make up for the lack in height by making more noise and seek the spotlight.

We still have poor needy people who really truly need help in the estates and kampongs ...yet instead we have the current spend as you please BN government waste so much money on fighter jets and kickbacks with the world's major arms dealers.

Is Malaysia planning to wage wars with its neighbours?

Mahathir may have brought progress to the nation but the man is not entirely free from fault and mistakes, either.

Abdullah Badawi promised Malaysians a clean, transparent government when he took over.

The only transparent thing he has brought us is how shallow his 'Islam Hadhari' buffoonery is for all to see.

His regime is the same if not worse from the predecessor.

Those who waste precious resources and commit criminal breach of the trust that the citizens of this country placed upon them will surely have to answer for their sins before Allah SWT!

Assalamualaikum Saudara Hasbullah.

Jawapan saya kepada Cikgu diatas mengandungi sebab musabab kenapa saya tidak setuju dengan program pembaziran ini.

Negara ini perlu sedar diri tentang yang mana lebih penting dan harus di utamakan.

Masih banyak keadaan yang memerlukan perhatian pemerintah.

Bukannya membakar berjuta dan berbilion ringgit untuk memuaskan hawa nafsu serakah perampok yang sedang berselinding disebalik takhta kerajaan.

Rakyat negara ini masih ramai yang terbiar dan tidak terbela menderita di estet estet dan kampong kampong pedalaman.

Bangunkanlah mereka. Bantulah mereka. Bebaskan lah mereka dari belenggu kemiskinan dan bilamana semua dah terjaga..barulah perlu difikirkan samada perlu ke tidak meneroka alam angkasa lepas demi kepentingan ilmu kaji alam dan sebagainya.

Ini tidak. Bagaikan ayam berkokok berderai derai seolah jaguh kampungan padahal ekornya hanyir membusuk, bergelumangan tahi!

Apa kejadahnya perlu kita beriya iya nak takluki angkasalepas sedangkan urusan dibumi ini masih banyak yang tak beres lagi?

Nak kata angan angan Mat Jenin, ini lebih terok dari itu!

Angan angan Mat Merapu dan sekutu sekutunya!

Memang sahih Bapa Pembaziran!

Typo error perenggan ke 5 jawapan saya diatas.

Berselindung bukan 'berselinding'.

Harap maaf.

I strongly believe you just made a major mistake. The space program does not cost RM95 million, where did you get such numbers? I would not be surprise it hardly cost RM1 million, if MOSTI were prudent.

FYI, the space program was part of the offset program that comes with the purchase of Sukhoi. The offset program is free but if not taken, there is no refund. It is some sort of technology transfer and training that comes with such purchases. IF you had notice, Shahrir Samad express reservation to Pak Lah's spontaneous response for a second trip for Dr Faiz.

In the past, many purchases that comes with offset programs offered by the likes of Boeing, Rolls Royce, and many others are left not taken, due to lazy executives.
My opinion expressed comes with familiarity thru my dealings with aerospeace companies.

Nevertheless, this does not diminished your point that Pak Lah is Bapa Pembaziran. In fact, as I see it, he is not aware that his actions are pembaziran.

Bohong and bazir - two things I have great disgust for.
