of fuel price increase and demos at the KLCC pt II

continuation from part I

So you disagree eh?

Just because you want to save a few tens of RM per week you rather have the
govt went bust and bankrupt? and expose the country to much higher risk?

the main point is the money saved will be able to balance the deficit. and
that should be the main thrust. If we keep on having ever burdgeoning
deficits we are inviting disaster.

This is the problem with Malaysians .. lambast people of subsidy mentality, lambast people not being adaptable to changes, lambast people for being too backward and don't want to understand world changes....

and look, we have subsidy mentality... look we are not adaptable, and look we as a people do not want to understand the mechanism behind why this is happening.

that's why the govt should just open the economy, let it be flooded by global goods, let it weed out the incompetitive (that's economics term for tutep kedai) let thousands loose their jobs, and then we will fully understand the globaslisation issue. Maybe then we will read more and understand more and want more control and not just shouts what NGOs were shouting, what the MNCs lobby group mantras, international funds talk of no barriers to entry and exits.......

by then only we will fully understands...... heck! I'd pay the 30cents extra if I can be safe in my cocoon.

Ignorance is bliss!

Yupe, a good write up.

But, how come car prices so much higher when we compare it with countries like Australia? How come the fuel prices also much cheaper there? -- Where is the Malaysian produced petroluem?

Petrol you get at Petronas comes from the Middle East. Our better quality oil are being exported overseas. We get the not-so-good quality oil from the Middle East and have it 'refined' (is that the term?) here.

Sorry sweetheart, I don't agree with you. I don't think we should just shut up. Although I'm not into street demonstrations either.

What we need, I think, is a smarter Finance Minister who knows Finance, Economics, Cashflows, Budgeting and Strategic Management. The problem is that our ministers are usually not qualified to lead the ministries.

The fact is, the whole country is angry. The rich Chinesemen (who are practically fuelling our economy) are angry. They are even willing to support for initiatives to get Tun Dr Mahathir back.

Ntah lah. I'm tired of reading about our economic status. Buat lah apa yang they all nak. I never said the world is a fair place to begin with.. so rest assured, the rich ones in the country will be more rich while the poor ones will remain poor.

Whether the price of petrol goes up 30 sen more or 50 sen less, I'm sure Petronas ceo will still bring in not less than RM100k A MONTH. And our not-so-qualified ministers will still have millions stashed away somewhere through some unscrupulous dealings.

So there. You either give in and accept the 30 sen price hike or tell the Government you're annoyed. While you wont see at street demonstrations, I will not grit my teeth and smile and tell the whole world I'm happy that I'm paying at least RM200 more every month because of the 30sen/liter hike.

save a horse, ride a cowboy?

if indeed the nature of things that go up, must come down,
then why the hell is it not reflected on the rising prices?

stronger gravity pull perhaps?
