As everyone would have known by now, I’ve been meaning to put this one up since well, last week.
I had taken the cue from DocTA yet again, that politicians should start pulling their socks and get down to serious business.
The thing is, he has valid reasons to be whining. Every Rakyat has all the rights to feel disgruntled by all the donkey craps going on. The non-stop bickering amongst the politicians from both the coalition he stressed, is getting a bit too stale for all of us, the people to chew on.
I tell you this, it has certainly been going on that I can safely bet on my crippled limbs the squabbling will persist for at least another couple of centuries. Going by the current tempo they are at, I don’t think they’ll ever stop!
Seriously, this isn’t helping. The biggest losers would be us all. As in…you all.
But all is not lost- just yet.
As I was digging deep in the Star’s Online archive looking for the latest news on Britney Spears, I stumbled on this particular news piece that’s worthy of a second look. I began to ask myself how could this one left unnoticed when my daily morning ritual usually starts by reading the newspapers.
Then it dawned on me, instead of starting the day with the typical boring shit, I decided to watch Johnny Knoxville’s The Ringer and in the process completely missed this piece of good news below.
Ministry’s teams to go looking for needy folk
JITRA: In a bid to ensure that no needy person misses out on government aid, the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry will scour the country to look for such people under a project called Projek Cari Cari.
Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said a task force would go to the ground to look for these people, especially in rural areas.
“We will have mobile units that will travel to rural areas to look for needy people, get information and provide them with aid,” she told newsmen Sunday after visiting the Taman Sinar Harapan Orphanage here. - The Star
Credits to dr Ng Yen Yen and her ministry or whoever originally mooted out this idea and come up with such project. Maybe its long overdue but finally since the formation of the new federal cabinet, this is the smartest progress to date and should be applauded.
With thousands of needy/OKU yet to register with the welfare department, this is rather a slick move from their part to comb over the whole country in searching of those in real need.
So there we have it. Amid the eternal spats amongst the politicians, there’s at least someone who is smart enough to get down and keep her job well on track.
