Drink Back BN's Milkshake

We're facing a grim possibility that if we let the monopoly of BN win again, it's Barang Naik for everybody and the poor and the middle are facing the economic burden. In the end, it's the BN that will bankrupt the nation, contrary to what Najib was saying.

It means that they drink our milkshake already. No. We have to drink theirs!

The video above is on the final act's climatic showdown between Eli Sunday and Daniel Plainview from There Will Be Blood. As mentioned in my previous post, you can look at the interplay between Daniel and Eli as People vs BN Government or vice-versa. The line 'I drink your milkshake' was based on the admittance and testimony of New Mexico senator Albert Fall in the 1920s who was convicted of accepting bribes on the Teapot Scandal. From the end of the video, Daniel had Eli cornered and at the height of it, bludgeoned Eli to death with a bowling pin.

One reason I use this video is to illustrate the parallels of Eli Sunday as to the Barisan Nasional Government, demanding more money (tax payers money) from the public as of Daniel. Having enough after being in that for 50 years, yes it is possible to go for a change. And that is a symbol of change, although not in a gentle manner. Eli wants to spread his faith-healing doctrine across the state of California, a.l.a here it is Islam Hadhari doctrine, which is ultimately flawed as according to some analysts and observers.

If BN is Eli Sunday, Then The Public is Daniel Plainview
