No DDC. So that my readers, esteemed or steamed, hear me right.
A lot is going wrong with NegaraKu.
The NST frontpage today leads with header MACC raids NFC office.
I won't go into details, just one general thought thinking aloud/allowed:
After the Auditor-General's 2101 annual report came out describing the RM250million National Deedlot Corporation's cattle-rearing project as "in a mess", and after many paries -- Desi alone wrote NOT LESS THAN SIX COMMENTARRIES on this subject -- the anti-corruption agency or renamed MACC finally got into the act. ((The PDRM earlier was reported to have commented that its initial findings, released just before the UMNO general assembly, said it had questioned more than 70 witnesses in conjunction with the NFC scandal, and it decided there was no hint of any criminal offence involved. Hey, after it had been admitted finally by the NFC boss that RM19.8miilion had been diverted to buy two units of condominium in Bangsar, and his wife UMNO Wanita chief-cum-Minister Sharizat Jalil stressed again and again the project had nothing to do with her; both were even "arrogant" in counter-attacking their critics, especially the Opposition. (An ASIDE can? In chinoserie there is a saying: Erk Ren sian kau zhang, rougly translated as "The aggresssor is first to report wrong done to him". Minta maaf if Desi got it wrong Okay! My Pasar mateys often tease with as being half a MatSalleh as I was schooled all along in English medium, and I confess I know more about American history than China's.)
Today I just read another report that in gist quoted Sharizat as challenging her party leaders with, I quote in Bahasa Malaysia: (from batuvsbatu.blo! gspot.co m using a Malaysia Chronicle report...) ""Beritahu saya, pemimpin UMNO yang mana tiada masalah?" " merupakan jawapan pantas Shahrizat apabila diminta memberi komen mengenai sama ada beliau akan bertindakbalas terhadap seruan untuk meletak jawatan seperti yang di laporkan oleh suratkahabr Sin Chew beberapa hari lepas.
Please read the full post at the original blog via link: http://batuvskayu.blogspot.com/2011/12/shahrizat-beritahu-saya-pemimpin-umno.html...
I quote the first para:
"Disebalik tanda bahawa UMNO sedang berantakan disebabkan skandal rasuah dan pertelingkahan dalaman dikalangan pemimpin tingginya, Suruhanjaya Pencegah Rasuah telah mengumumkan bahawa satu pasukan khas akan dibentuk untuk menyiasat dakwaan bahawa keluarga Menteri UMNO Shahrizat Jalil telah menyalahgunakan dana awam berjumlah RM250 juta yang diperuntukkan bagi projek ternakan lembu NFC untuk kegunaan peribadi dan juga harta mewah."
I also recall the previous Wania UMNO chief Rafidah Aziz was reported to have admitted in Parliament, in gist, yes, her son-in-law did receive APs (Approved Permits for vehicle imports) oversighted by her ministry. But in mitigating defence perhaps, she also revealed that a family member of her boss then -- nothing less than then Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad -- a;so received such APs.
It seems the logic of UMNO ministers -- past, present ( and in future too? God forbid!) -- truly believe that if fellow UMNO leaders were also doing similar acts of misusing their powers, or worse, engaging in corrupt acts, then it's acceptable. I believe such statements come when the proptagonist is clutching at straws when he/she feels her days in politics (or on earth?) are numbered -- or Heavn forbid, t! hey trul y believe their own statements, which made often enough, become rock solid rationale?
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
The Rakyat, especially the VOTERS, who term-after-term elected the BN led by UMNO into majority control of Parliament, I just would say: Hey, you ask for it! IF I were to use Da Desi Code, it would have read: Hey, you aRsEk for it! Then I would have humoured myself, not all except for a handul, of my esteemed readers.
I should end with the usual Vote "ABU" in the impending General Elections (GE13), but I refrain. BUT YOU KNOW WHY? Because some smartaleck here would ask Desi: Please explain to me what ABU stands for? And my blood pressure would hit the roof, and I could be admitted to the Seremban General one last time, but I have no such death wish...
"God please bless me and my friends with a life well lived and long." Amen.

Khir Toyo jailed 12 months for corruption
Former Selangor Mentri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo was found guilty by the High Court here Friday of knowingly purchasing two pieces of land and a bungalow in Section 7 at a much lower price than its original value from Ditamas Sdn Bhd director Shamsuddin Hayroni in 2007.
He was sentenced to one year in jail from Friday and Justice Mohtarudin Baki ordered his land and bungalow be forfeited.
However, the judge granted him him a stay of execution of jail time and forfeiture of the properties pending an appeal after his lawyer M. Athimulan made the request. The lawyer said the appeal would be filed Friday evening.
The properties involved were purchased at RM3.5mil although Ditamas had bought it for RM6.5mil on Dec 23, 2004. The court found that the defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt in the case.
