The Kuala Lumpur of 2020 – Truly an Unbelievable Pipe Dream

A 10 year Plan for a Greater Kuala Lumpur

Judge for yourself.

Political Pipe Dream* or Farcical Fantasy?

Read full story HERE & HERE

A 'pipe dream' is a fantastic hope, or plan, that is generally regarded as being nearly impossible to achieve, the term originated in the 19th Century, as an allusion to the dreams experienced by smokers of opium pipes.

Couldn't post this earlier,

I was laughing too much...................

I hope I am wrong, but in my humble opinion 2010 is far too near, the pipe dream will remain just that a dream!

Pigs may fly.

or is it

Is it pie in the sky!

Observation on Politicians

"There is nothing so bad that politics cannot make it worse."

"There is nothing that politicians like better than handing out benefits to be paid for by someone else."

"In politics, the truth is strictly optional and that also seems to be true in parts of the media."

"You have to have a sense of humour if you follow politics. Otherwise, the sheer fraudulence of it all will get you down."

"What is history but the story of how politicians have squandered the blood and treasure of the human race?"

"If politicians stopped meddling with things they didn’t understand, there would be a more drastic reduction in the size of government than anyone in either party advocates."

"Congressman Frank and Senator Dodd wanted the government to push financial institutions to lend to people they would not lend to otherwise, because of the risk of default. ... The idea that politicians can assess risks better than people who have spent their whole careers assessing risks should have been so obviously absurd that no one would take it seriously."
