MUAR, Saturday 25 September 2010 (Bernama) — Deputy Prime Minister
Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has called on Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to
answer allegations made by Umno Youth on the state government’s financial source
to fund its poverty eradication programmes.
Muhyiddin said Muslims would not want to be associated should
gambling money were used for the programmes.
“We want an answer from Lim. If the money is from a forbidden source,
Muslims will have no part in it,” he told reporters after launching a Pagoh
education excellence programme at the Dewan Sri Pekembar, here.
Muhyiddin was asked on a news report today quoting
Umno Youth as claiming that funds from gambling activities were used to finance
poverty eradication programmes in Penang.

Muhyiddin
do not start something you cannot stop! You say “If the money is from a
forbidden source, Muslims will have no part in it”. What the bloody hell are
you talking about? Does Genting pay their taxes to Singapore…if they pay any
taxes at all? What about the Selangor Turf Club – does it all go to the MCA?
And I believe the Penang Turf Club must still be paying their dues to the
disintegrating Gerakan? 

As Forest Gump says “Stupid is as stupid does!”. Are
you telling us that every ringgit earned from these gambling outlets are
physically tracked from the time the punters put their money down – and the government that you are now Deputy Prime
Minister of – are able to track the path of this ringgit to ensure that along
the way no Muslim will come into contact with it or – GOD forbid – have the
unfortunate experience of having that ringgit find its way into that Muslim
pocket to be used by same Muslim! And I say this because from that stupid
statement you have just made your Barisan Nasional government must have done
one hell of a job to ensure that no Muslim in our country have had no part in
either spending or benifiting from any ringgit that had anything to do with
gambling!

You
stupid, stupid man! First it was that idiotic “I am a Malay first and then a
Malaysian second”. Now this! And everytime I think of you I remember you in
that stupid hat of yours!
  
Please
Muhyiddin engage your brain first before you open your mouth. We humans are
able to communicate through speech. What that means is that when you see a cobra you issue an immediate warning to all around you to “RUN”. And of course those
around you will respond to this urgent warning being communicated by you to
them and run away from the danger. 
But sometimes your ability to think is not
that good due to any number of reasons. One of them is the inability of some
people to say the right things at the right time and also saying
things that we later wish we had not said. In your case Muhyiddin it would seems to
me that in the light of recent happenings you would require some behavioral
changes. Namely to think before you speak! How do you do this you ask me? Read the following and maybe, just maybe it might do you some good. 

1

Observe yourself: Take note of when this happens to you. What
circumstances led to your saying things that, later, you wish you had said
differently? Does it happen mostly with one particular person (or group of
people)? Is it most often in arguments or debates? Is it when you’re “on
the spot” for information? Try to find a pattern. It might be helpful to
start a journal of events
so you can compare these at your leisure.
    
Recognize your situation: After you determine what circumstances might be most
likely to produce this unwanted effect, try to be very observant about when
those conditions appear to be manifesting. The more skilled you become at
recognizing this, the better you will be at changing your approach.
Observe the conversation: Now that you know you’re in one of “those”
situations, the goal is for you to process information. Often when we respond
in a less than appropriate way, it’s because we didn’t fully comprehend what
was being said. This is the time to sit back and listen to what’s going on around you.
Don’t start focusing on what you’re going to say; just absorb. Your mind will
process this information in the background.
Observe the people: Who is speaking and how do they communicate? Some
people are very literal and some people use examples. Some people use a lot of facial
expression
and body language
to augment their conversation whereas others rely on complex verbiage. How
people convey information is a very good indicator of how they best absorb
information.
Formulate responses: Not just one, but consider your options. There are
many different ways to say things. and your goal here is to find the best way
to convey what you want to say in a way that has a positive impact.
Communication is primarily a function of the recipient so you have to communicate
based on the listener.
Consider the information: Is what you want to say Effective, Necessary, Accurate, Timely, and Appropriate (ENATA)? If you are just
responding because other people are talking, then it’s possible your
communication doesn’t fit the ENATA model. If not, then sit back and continue to listen. You want what you
say to have impact, not just make noise.
Gauge the reaction: Is the information you’re going to present formulated
in a way to make a positive impact? Creating a negative atmosphere will
guarantee failure in communications. You want people to understand that you are
contributing rather than detracting. It only takes once to ruin your ability to
communicate during that time. Identify how the listeners will react.
Be thoughtful about your
tone:
How you say it is, in many ways, as
important as what you say. Tone of voice can convey enthusiasm and sincerity,
or it can rebuff and show sarcasm, and as most people have experienced, what we
say can be taken in the wrong way. The most likely reason is that the tone of
voice, what was said, body and facial language, as well as content, were not
all thoughtfully combined to integrate with the listener’s most effective
method of communication.
Communicate: You now know what you’ll say, why it’s ENATA, how you’ll say it and the most likely reaction. Wait
for an appropriate break in the conversation and speak. It’s usually best not
to interrupt, although there are occasions when that will work best.
Repeat Step 1: While you’re talking, consider what you’re saying and
keep a close watch on the reactions as they emerge. After the conversation is
over, review the whole process again in your mind and note what you might have
done differently and why. This is an ongoing process. Over time, you will
refine and improve – you will become a better communicator and people will
accept your responses with a more open mind.
Okay that is as much as I can do. If that still does
not help you out then it can only confirm one other thing. You are a stupid idiot!
