You just need to hear PKR’s Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli’s address in Parliament to see what an idiot he is (in case you are not already convinced by now that he is an idiot).

Rafizi is supposed to be their number one star.

Can you imagine the quality (or lack of it) of those further down the food chain?

Rafizi told Parliament that this year alone the government had collected RM39 billion in GST (or almost RM4 billion a month over ten months).

Rafizi then worked it out and said that this means each Malaysian family is paying RM19 a day in GST, which comes to RM6,935 a year for each and every Malaysian family.

For a family to pay RM6,935 a year in GST, they would need to spend RM115,583.

For a family to spend RM115,583 a year, the family income must be at least RM250,000 a year after income tax – considering you also have house payments (installments or rent), car payments, assessment rates, quit rent, children to send to school, telephone, internet, cable TV, and much more to pay.

Rafizi comes from Kemaman in Terengganu and he knows that Malays in Terengganu do not earn RM250,000 a year per family (unless you are Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad, the Amanah chief of Terengganu).

Even very few Chinese in Terengganu earn RM250,000 a year per family other than the loggers and saw millers.

So who is Rafizi kidding when he told Parliament that each and every family in Malaysia is paying RM19 in GST every single day for 365 days a year?

You only pay GST when you spend.

If you do not spend you do not pay GST.

So, to pay RM19 in GST every day, you need to spend RM115,583 a year and earn at least RM250,000 a year after income tax.

It seems a Mahathir Mohamad advisor, Syed Akbar Ali, was the one who helped Rafizi prepare his Parliament address.

This Syed Akbar is another idiot who keeps calling Najib a moron whereas he himself bungles like the Keystone Cops.

Kadir Jasin

Now, if what Rafizi told Parliament is not enough stupidity, Mahathir’s media expert, Kadir Jasin, entered the race to challenge Rafizi for the Idiot of the Year Award.

In reference to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s recent trip to China and the RM144 billion in investment deals that Malaysia and China signed, Kadir said: “Let us see if the Chinese capital is really flowing in and every sen is accounted for. We do not want the China companies to come to Malaysia on the pretext of investing in huge projects but raising the capital from the local market. I challenge Mustapa Mohamed, Johari Abdul Ghani and Muhammad Ibrahim to show us the pay-in slips to prove that the China companies were actually bringing in the capital.”

Pay-in slips? What a real foot-in-the mouth statement.

Kadir expects the Chinese investors to immediately rush to the bank to bank in RM144 billion in cash into the ‘investment account’ so that they can invest in Malaysia?

I believe Kadir used to own a magazine called Malaysian Business.

Yet he cannot understand that when foreign investors invest RM144 billion in Malaysia they do not bank in RM144 billion in cash into their bank accounts in Malaysia.

What a nincompoop this Kadir is!

Mahathir has to really consider sacking his idiotic Keystone Cops and replace them with brilliant Boffin Boys like what Prime Minister Najib Razak has: people with brains and who are good at their jobs.

Mahathir – Kit Siang

For example, Najib’s boys would have never advised Najib to do what Mahathir did last Tuesday: make a guest appearance in Parliament.

That was the silliest thing Mahathir could have ever done.

Now people are asking: who is whose lembu (cow)?

Is Lim Kit Siang Mahathir’s lembu or is Mahathir Kit Siang’s lembu?

The end result is that both the Chinese and Malays were very upset with this collaboration or alliance between Mahathir and Kit Siang.

So it is a loss-loss situation while Mahathir and Kit Siang both thought they were winning against the other.

Yes, Mahathir thought he was using Kit Siang and hence was benefitting while Kit Siang thought he was using Mahathir and hence was benefitting.

Actually both are losing out because both the Malays and Chinese were disgusted that Mahathir and Kit Siang can discard their principles and work with one another when once they both wanted each other dead.

Ahmad Husni

Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah is telling people that what Malaysia Today wrote is a lie.

The fact remains that Husni never came out to publicly deny the allegations or held a press conference to clarify his position.

As what Mahathir said, as long as Najib does not clarify and explain, then the Prime Minister must be presumed guilty.

The same applies to Husni as well: what is sauce for the goose was sauce for the gander.

I know of one case where Husni offered one of his staff ‘French kiss lessons’ and when he bent over to kiss her she pushed him away.

Husni is in the same league as Muhyiddin Yassin and, just like in Muhyiddin’s case, Husni’s political career is finished for good.

That is what happens when you eat and shit in the same place.

He fooled many people by sporting that goatee and always talking about religion whereas he skips his compulsory Friday prayers by hiding in his office.

Donald Trump

One final point, some people do not believe that Najib’s Boffin Boys already knew months ago that Donald Trump was going to win the US Presidential election and that they had planned their strategy for when Trump would take over the White House.

Actually all you need to do is to study the trend or pattern to see that it was inevitable that Trump would win.

When President Obama and the First Lady came out to campaign for Hillary Clinton, we knew then that Trump had won.

Raja Petra Kamarudin or RPK, cousin to the Selangor Sultan, is one of Malaysia's earliest online 'citizen journalists'. He started his website in 1995 before the internet 'explosion' triggered by the Reformasi movement in September 1998. Malaysia Today was launched as a blog in August 2004 and is one of the few pioneer blogs still active and posting articles on a daily basis 24-7. RPK, 66 years old, has been writing since 1990.
