Well, as I thought, nothing actually happen with the budget voting.
Just lots of hot air as usual.
Wasting time only paying attention to it.
So, I'm not going to waste my effort on that one anymore.
For this posting, I just want to comment a bit about this piece of nonsense which my friend forwarded to me just now;
NST Blasted By Netizens For Racial Stereotyping
A few hours ago New Straits Times (NST) had headlined an article titled, ‘Help Minimise Threat To Society’ which referred to a study by the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2019 that stated alcohol drinkers in Malaysia made up 11.8% of the population and 45.8% drank excessively. This content had an image of an Indian middle-aged man as its feature image.
Hmmm...I saw the picture and I wonder why they put it there. The guy was not even drinking.
Must be a slip up of some sort.
NST being racist towards the Indians? I don't think so. There are lots of Indians working and holding senior posts in that newspaper.
Anyway, NST has already replaced that picture and apologised to those offended, saying it didn't intend to insult anyone.
Ok, I'm fine with that, but for its next story, I think NST should do a racial breakdown of the drinkers so it could dispel the perception that Indians have a drinking problem.
Break the racial stereotype, kind of.
|Hopefully the frogs will not get offended. It's just Kermit being drunk, not a frog being drunk, okay.|
Well, the whole point of the story was that we need to tackle the drinking problem in our society.
Don't drink too much lah, okay.
I'm not one of those who demand for the ban on sale of alcoholic beverages, but I prefer people who drink them not to do so just to get piss drunk.
Just drink to have fun is okay but not until you lose your senses and do stupid things. And of course, those whose religion forbid them from consuming intoxicating drinks shouldn't drink at all.
There are so many cases of people getting drunk and went driving, causing fatal accidents.
Yeah, there was even the case of a man who got drunk and drove through a police roadblock during the MCO, killing one of the cops.
That's terrible and for that, I'm totally fine with the recent decision to impose heavier penalty on drunk drivers.
Eh, you drunk already, call Grab la. Save yourself and others lots of trouble.
Then there was also once the extreme case of a bunch of people getting drunk and went rioting and beating up a fireman to death.
Maybe we should increase the penalty on beating up a fireman to death too. Or at least take some sort of action against the drunk bastards. Last time they did that, no one got punished, okay.
See, that's why there's a need to educate people not to get drunk.
People should know their limit when drinking.
Don't try to be macho and drink more than you should.
If two cans of beer can make you get drunk, drink only one. Or better still, don't drink at all.
It's really pathetic actually to see a man trying to be macho and getting drunk after just two cans of beer.
Oh, and they talk so much shit some more. And loudly at that.
It's one of the reasons why I don't really like going to the clubs where that sort of drunks hang out.
If you want to get drunk, please make sure you don't disturb others like that, okay.
The best way to to do so is by drinking at home.
Do drink all you want at home until you pass out. I'm fine with that.
But of course don't go beating your wife and children after you got drunk.
Maybe the wife should chain you to something before you start your drinking binge to make sure you don't get violent once you lose your mind to the alcohol.
Well, that's my take on the issue.
Happy weekend guys. Cheers.
