DO… NOT… REACT

It smells like the dark side is trying to execute Order 513(v2) to counter Project 916 (or could it be Project 920 now?). And will the cinema be showing “The Return of the Weed Operation”?

Yes, it’s getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes, not your fist; or any other thing for that matter.

This is not the time to show that you have had enough. This is not the time to show that you are not afraid. This is not the time to be emotional and all.

This is a time to use your intellect, which you all claim to have as compared to the rest. This is a time to see what is beyond. So please use your brain. Exercise discernment and don’t do anything stupid.

Just continue with our daily lives while keeping an eye on the show. After all, it’s quite a blockbuster. Whatever it is, just don’t react unwisely.

P/S: Besides Taxy Driver, are there any tax professionals out there reading A.Z.A.I.G.? I plan to start a tax blog. Just ranting, nothing too technical. Drop me a mail if you are interested.

Right on the spot.

He is trying to press the RESET button and turn the country into Chaos so that his troops can take over.

We should not react. We should only react by calling the police when these Mat Rempiters cause social unrest with riots.

If the police do nothing.. then we must seek help from the "peace keepers"

talking about tax, i just got a letter from inland revenue, asking me about some tax in year 2004... chew... all in MALAY, wah lao i need interpreters...

Edi神 said...

h0h0hh0

i am ready to stand with any Malaysians who will stand up against this tyranny.

btw, i am flying overseas for work from 916 to 918...very worried for my family, friends and people at work should anything happen...

having said that, the last 6 months have shown us that nothing has changed eventhough BN has been denied with 2/3 majority. we need to have constitutional change to restore much of what was lost during BN era (including giving back His Majesty the Agong the power to veto bills). That way, our brothers and sisters, the Malays, need not worry if any laws are enacted that will be detrimental to their well being.

Afterall, without elected representatives to both houses in the parliament, the only check and balance we have is in Dewan Rakyat and we all can see how much power can be abused there....

Huei said...

ahhh

keeping calm..despite the 513 attempts..n looking to 916!

Yalah...let him be a fool for the world to see. If he can't control his tongue, why should we also fail to do the same? If he can't control his primal urges, why can't we? If we also fail to control our tongue and become primates ourselves, then that does not make us any different.

And er...tax blog, hmm...interesting proposition ;) My wife has left your ex-firm :)

Having a tax blog will be informative, but can be a bit tad boring. It depends on how you keep it alive...good luck!

Taxy Driver said...

Gosh, zewt! You have really really obedient readers. They really didn't react. Your next post should be titled "Gimme lots of comments!"

sooi2 said...

We can react wat. Every pendatang within the capacity should react by filling in the immigration forms! Then we see who are going to pay 90% [according to chedet] of the country's taxes!

Bee Ean said...

Yes I'm very interested on your coming tax blog. Please send me a link.

whoalse said...

Speaking of 513 incident, I met an old person few weeks ago. Surprisingly, he told me it was far worse than portrayed in the history, particularly the food ration. It was certainly an eye-opener for him to share his first-hand experience in the "hot spot", one of which nearly getting shot at!

And yes, he's overseas now and liking it!

zewt, I'm still waiting for your new zewty domain address! :P

jam said...

And 916 should be declared as the 'official' independence day of this country too.

Freethinker said...

Edi神 said...

Happy mooncake festival!

Gomen, polis, judge & etc will do whatever possible to stop Anwar!

by doing this they only ignite the Rakyat Fire! UMNO popularity drop to the lowest point.

H.C. Tan said...

psst. zewt...sad or not MU lost to liv last Sat? hehe...

zewt said...

freethinker - hope i helped there.

anon @ 9/9 11.23pm - peace keepers? no such thing now.

sunshine - ask your husband lor.

Edi - hahaha... i am sure DSAI has that in mind.

myop101 - i think recent events show that we need more than just check and balance now.

huei - maybe 920?

anon @ 10/9 2.46pm - it will be about our lives hehe.

anon @ 10/9 3.54pm - wow... u must be earning big bucks now!

zewt said...

taxy driver - i didnt know i have such great influence :P

sooi2 - immigrants also have to pay tax i think, if u earn income here :P

bee ean - will do when it's up... if it's up.

whoalse - that thing still on hold :P

jam - hahaha... i dont mind that.

lynnwei - you're welcome.

anon @ 11/9 1.49pm - i am not into indirect taxes so cant answer the sales tax bit. as for RA, it's an incentive to allow manufacturing to claim additional 60% on qualifying capital expenditure (i.e. on top of capital allowances). it's not just restricted to food only.

zewt said...

anon @ 11/9 2.33pm - that's really good encouragement.

HC Tan - engkang... they talk without brains... or should i say... they talk as though we have no brains. man u loss... nevermind lah... it's all about who will win the title. man u may not win... but dont think liverpool can ler.

constant craver joe - will definitely invite you when it's up. so are you in?

Rin - hey there! both ler... intersting mah. but i am more on corporate tax. but then again... not very technical lah.

mcmercedez - tomorrow!!! tomorrow!!

Mummy said...

something entirely out of subject, but can't resist this:

Liverpool beat ManU ;)

sabrina said...

Agreed!!

Although i must say it is very very tempting to layeth the smackdown on these bastards!

whoalse said...

zewt, that bad ah? petrol price hike and everything hike delaying the new project.....! ;)

zewt said...

mummy - i am going to make sure timmy turns a devil :P

sabrina - hahahaha... i am sure it is.

whoalse - one thing for sure, petrol price must go down soon. it's freaking 90 bucks per barrel now!
