When Expletives And Profanity Are Necessary

There's are two interesting notions I can draw about from how these ignorant and insensible people making burgers, showing their buttocks and making the bro hahas around Ambiga's residence in Damansara Heights. I don't really want to talk much about what other people have said - what they are doing, why they are doing and so forth, except the whole thing summarizes that these people who claim to be themselves pious, praying to God almost everyday yet they indirectly say it is legitimate and halal to support what is expressively forbidden by God and the things that have been written into stone - e.g commit corruption, supporting or doing evil. Even by saying no to Bersih, it also means that they really want to play dirty or they do not know what is actually behind the whole thing so to speak.

Anyhow, the first part I want to talk about today is about the business. In business, there is such a thing called a firesale, meaning, you make sale at an very well discounted price, just to take advantage of the situation. At Bersih 3.0 recently, there are some traders who knew who to grab the opportunity in that situation. There were many people out there to grab a quick bite or have a quick drink to quench their thirst. Those who did so made a decent amount of money on that day. Those who didn't, well it's their own business and their mistake anyhow.

I once used the comparison of the parking management companies and their parking prices in general as the example case in point of how smart and savvy traders use ways to get people to come again vs those who do not know about it and use only one poor way to recuperate their operations and investment. The missing piece that separates between what makes a good sale vs an unsatisfactory sale (high price but unsatisfactory service) is the elements that form a carrot stick for the people. Taking off other factors into consideration for the price setting (including target audience, target revenue and so forth), I get the opinion view that smart and savvy managed companies will offer a unique pricing way to attract people into coming. How's the idea of RM1 - 2 for the first three hours on weekdays sound? In the view of the consumer, it's worthwhile, assuming that if one stays there for a little more than 3 - say 5 hours for the price of 60% of the actual.

Compare it with RM 4 per hour with no attractive marketing strategy - people will get angry and you lose their services. How does that approach sound like?

The traders who demonstrated at Ambiga are mostly those who don't really know how to finesse themselves in the art of selling things out to attract people. The claim of the Bersih rally losing money is not really concrete. The main reason is that there was never a police advisory board of them to close the business. Instead, it is their folly and their decision with lack of wisdom to close that got them into the mess. They should not instead blame Bersih and their organisers and instead should blame themselves for it.

The notion that I got is following and being mislead by the ringleader by the name of Jamal Younus. It is well known that Jamal is an UMNO member and a known bedfellow of Noh Omar (note: Sekinchan Ikan Bakar is also first based in Tanjung Karang). One thing that caught my attention is his claim of being a nasi lemak seller, whereas it was proven that he was seen several times driving a luxorius car that no commoner would be able to buy given of its price inclusive of its import duty 100% of its original value. Another that caught my attention is that the campaign of getting support for their traders anti-Bersih rally indirectly is profiteering one man alone - him. Maybe you might want to read more about DAP's alleged claim about this fellow here.

Who's more a fool? A fool himself or the fool that follows the fool? The other thing is that those who said no gets mislead by an unfounded claim by a man who is affiliated to UMNO. And you're not a savvy trader who immediately gets duped into believing Bersih is anarchy? Why do you blame people whereas it is their own wrong decision that gets them into the trouble? Were if they are able to sell like some of their own ilk who did that on the event day, they could be making some additional money out of it. Were they aware that the event was attended by everyone of all races for just one cause - eliminating the gerrymandering in elections and instead pursue the goal of level of playing field?

You mean that you people out tell us that playing dirty is fine and legit?

This is why expletives and profanity words at you are necessary to get your brain right: words like -

cibai - niamah chow hai -  so hai - fuck you -  churn choi - sor hai - bodoh - tolol -  kena tipu - malaon

and the list goes down to say that people like you will not make the country mature and progress better.
