  • Me So Horny, Me Love You Long Time

    Such a sad, pathetic figure this Najib person is. Absolutely no conscience. Corrupt, greedy, and plain evil. It's amazing just how sycophantic Malaysians are for putting up with this criminal for 9 long years. The reason for that is simple. Malaysians themselves are corrupt and dishonest, so it is entirely understandable that they tolerated a leader who reflected their own shortcomings. Truly an evil country.

    Please mention that he was not exonerated before... he shut down the investigation, fired the AG and the governor of the central bank, and replaced all with people who silenced the investigation... The report is very misleading! It is not a re-opened investigation....the initial investigation was never allowed to take off...

    Najib thinks he can just say "innocent" and that should end the whole story. Yet, he cant offer any firm answer or proof or anything about RM114 million cash in kids house, RM500,000 in his own house, 36 bags of watches and jewelry, RM40 million in account from SRC (which is clear criminal breach of trust, punishable by prison) or any allegation about anything. He cant offer any answer about BILLIONS missing from 1MDB, or what Jho's role is, or even why other countries are calling this the biggest theft in world history. He says its all political slander and lies. I think Ferdinand Marcos said the same thing even when filipinos were chasing him and he ran to Hawaii to escape being torn to pieces by the people.

      Also make sense if we keep in back account it can be freezed and checked.and the money they exchange it into a lot of assets and if I was a robber and suddenly I bank in a million of cash into my account. I think cops will come at me.so if someone put that money on his house to framed him I don't think its a good idea to frame someone with money.

Oh.. amazing grammar btw~
