Blame it on ... (insert anything you hate)

I can't believe this kind of article appears in Kompas -- or any newspaper for that matter. Look how its author in his attempt to attack liberalization thinks how oil crisis (what? oil crisis?) can be curbed by 1) encouraging the world to force oil producing countries to increase their production, 2) asking oil consuming countries to reduce their consumption, 3) asking countries to be 'patient' with their political ambition.

And oh, he thinks that Indonesia's own 'oil crisis' is caused by high oil consumption which is caused by large production of cars and motorbikes which is caused by liberalization.

Terrible. BNI shareholders, beware!

Shadow government

Of course everybody should be free to assemble his own shadow government or whatever. No consent from Defense Minister should be required. People do that, including kids at schools. But, why am I laughing reading this? I would love to see a shadow DPR, playing another comedy.
