(Poem) The Teflon Don

THE TEFLON DON

 

His eyes are cold and lifeless

Like a shark thats ready for a kill

His heart is as cold as an iceberg

He is always looking forward to a steal

King of the Con Game, trying to make a deal

 

He will steal your Granny’s home away

Known for never paying any of his own bills

For him it’s the thrill of the cheat and the steal

Bankrupting his partners one of his favorite games

Being an egomaniac bully is how he gets a thrill

 

He’ll break you, your Mamma and the Banks

He’s never had a bill he’ll go ahead and pay

His only art is to line his own unholy pockets

He’s a King of making all his partners fail

This is how Teflon Don learned to close a deal

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is finalising investigation papers (IPs) on three high-ranking civil servants who were detained on Aug 15 in connection with corruption, abuse of power and money laundering.

MACC Strategic Communications Division director Abdul Samat Kasah said the trio, one with the title ‘Datuk’ and another ‘Datuk Seri’, had been released on police bail while waiting for the IPs to be finalised before being submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) for the next course of action.

“All of them were released on police bail. This does not mean the probe is over as the IPs are still being finalised before they are handed over to the AGC for further action.

“The cases are taking some time as it involves seized assets worth millions of ringgit,” he told Bernamahere Monday.

The three men, who are attached to KL City Hall, Public Works Department (JKR) and Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), were arrested in simultaneous operations in Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Kelantan.

The 54-year-old ‘Datuk Seri’ from DBKL was released on Saturday after he was picked up at his office at 3.07pm on Aug 15.

The ‘Datuk’, a 56-year-old attached with Melaka JKR was released on Thursday.

The other suspect, a 47-year-old senior officer of TNB in Kota Bharu, Kelantan was released on Sunday.

They were all released on RM300,000 bail each.

MACC Investigations director Datuk Azam Baki said following the arrests, the commission had frozen bank accounts of the suspects with amounts totalling over RM13 million, including their savings and unit trust shares valued between RM1 million and RM6 million each.

Also seized were several luxurious condominium units including a penthouse and a bungalow, as well as Maserati, BMW and Audi cars.

The operations were conducted in line with newly-appointed MACC chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad aim to ‘clean up’ the civil service of corruption, misappropriation and abuse of power.

Christian Integrity, What Is It

Christian Integrity, What Is It

 

Last evening I had a phone conversation with a man who has been in the states for many years but who’s family members still live in their original homeland. This is a man I have been coming to know the past couple of months because of a business deal we both have interest in. I have met this man, his wife and their children a couple of times in person and among the things my wife and I both noticed was their integrity as individuals and as a family unit. This helps bring me to one of the points that came up last evening during our phone conversation, the integrity of the people in the area (and those that stop in off of the interstate and stop in at his business). There were a few other issues that we spoke of like education and basic intelligence of the area but I would like to stick to the one issue today. The issue is/was about the people in this area and our faith as a Christian people, and our overall attitudes as a people concerning our/the personal level of Christian ethics and integrity.

 

The man I spoke of in the previous paragraph was from a far eastern country, these next persons are from the middle-east. They own a local convenience store in my neighborhood so I got used to their faces and they to mine. The main sellers at this store was gas, beer, and cigarettes. As I got to know this family (just the men, no women) one of the things they were having to get used to was having the “customers” stealing from them. I am sorry to burst any bubbles but if we steal from anyone, that is a major red flag that we are lacking in our personal integrity. A couple of times these gentlemen spoke of their homeland where store owners could leave their wares on tables on the sidewalks and go home at night without worry of being robbed. Unfortunately I don’t know of places like that here in the States where I would feel totally secure doing this, do you? I hope you do.

 

To be honest with you when I started typing the title I realized that I didn’t know how to spell the word integrity. I don’t know how many years it had been since I spelled the word. Come to think of it, integrity isn’t a word that I ever hear bounced along our airwaves or in personal daily life, do you? When I looked the word up in the dictionary it gave me three definitions which I would like to relay to you to see what you think. (1) Adherence to a moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty. (2) The state of being whole, entire, or undiminished. (3) A sound, unimpaired, or perfect condition. Am I pointing a finger at you, only if I am also pointing a finger at myself. I’m not here to point any fingers though, I’m here to ask each of us to look inside our own selves if we say we are Christians (followers of Christ) and asking those of you who are not to please also take some quiet time to be honest with ourselves, our families, and with God.
