As I previously wrote, we need this government to handle the coming global recession more than anything else.
Like it or not we better pray that it'll works.
It's all we have to handle the shit.
Having said that, I have to admit that I'm not very optimistic right now.
The Cabinet line-up looks not very convincing.
It was set up not to handle the coming recession but instead to satisfy political needs.
We are not getting the best people in the Cabinet to handle the troubles coming at us.
The set-up is for the survival of those politicians themselves instead of us and the country.
Anwar the PM appointed himself to be the finance minister and his deputies for that portfolio are Ahmad Maslan and Steven Sim.
Honestly, do you think that's the best people to handle our country's finances with the recession coming our way?
What? Give them a chance?
It's the country's fucking economy, okay.
How can I give a chance on that to those clowns.
Ya, ya, ya...people voted them.
We are fucked because we let ourselves get fucked.
Let's not even talk about Zahid as DPM and such.
People voted for the clowns, so accept it as it is.
All we can do now is to pray that hopefully the clowns won't fuck up too much.
What choice do we have, anyway.
The Perikatan guys would probably give us another bunch of clowns to run the country too.
Really never mind....I'm just bitching.
I know now that I have to deal with the coming recession on my own at personal level.
Can't hope for this government to help me.
Might as well.
It's filled with a bunch of liars anyway.
Okay, I need to really be careful with my spendings from now on.
My savings could only be stretched so far and I think the recession may go on for at least the next two or three years.
I'm planning to even cut down on my food intake.
Good also because I'm fat now.
No more new clothes.
No more outings.
Yeah, the more I go out of the house, the more I'll spend.
I'm going to treat the recession as another wave of Covid-19 pandemic.
Sorry, I can't offer any other advice.
You all have to deal with the recession in your own ways.
I have no answer for those who are yet to have any saving, especially the young people who have just joined the working world.
Can't advise the B40 much too as my problems are not the same as theirs.
The government is supposed to help those people, but as I said, after looking at its Cabinet line-up, I'm not very optimistic about it.
Just look at the credentials of Anwar, Ahmad Maslan and Steven Sim, okay.
Why la they put Ahmad Maslan and not Jo Ghani there?
Is political survival more important than getting the best guy to do the job for the country?
Anwar, you don't want to be overshadowed by a deputy who knows how to handle the recession better than you, is it?
I've seen how Anwar handled a recession as a finance minister in the late 90s and was not impressed. The country was almost fucked, big time, okay.
Still, shouldn't complain too much.
We voted them, so we should accept what's coming our way.
Honestly, I feel like I'm in that movie "Don't Look Up" right now.
Quite helpless, actually.
