Should martial law and state of emergency law in Egypt be abolished, retained or amended?

February 11, 2011, Thursday, it’s starting to be back to normal.  Finally, the protesters’ prayers have been answered.  President Hosni Mubarak resigned and turned over the authority to the military’s high council.  A lot of people are on the streets.  There were fireworks,  families and teenage groups cheered and had a great time.  It was a friendly atmosphere, some were even emotional.   After all the threats and uncertainties, I’m still thankful  that we have been protected, secured and have witnessed this historical and memorable event.

Majority are looking forward for total transformation and reform.   But will martial law be amended and bureaucracy be abolished?  Will there be constitutional amendments that will protect the people and promote democracy?   If not, then history will repeat itself.  As long as the martial law and  state of emergency law will not be amended, whoever is in authority will be protected and can be used against the civilians.

Is it right for the government to control the media?

At first I thought the news on blocking blogs, Facebook & Twitter in Egypt were just a hoax.  But now, we can’t use  these two powerful social media.   I don’t know what else to say, I’ll probably just pray.  😦

The English Language

Few days ago, I encountered a group of students making fond of their local teacher by mimicking his accent.  So I asked, what’s wrong?   And they told me, “it’s because their teacher doesn’t have an American accent”.  How absurd, when they can’t even express their ideas articulately in English?

The English language has a lot of variance, especially the accent.  In North America alone has different accents and dialects, like the Americans in Texas have a different accent compared to the Americans in New York or Alabama.  There are even a lot of slang words in the US that can’t even be understood and inappropriate to be used in a formal setting.  So, which among the diverse accents can universally be the standard for communication?

This colonial mentality served as a barrier to achieve freedom and has been the reason to degrade other people and even oneself.  It’s not a valid reason to be cruel to others because they don’t speak or dress up like the Jonas Brothers or Kate Winslet.   Living in an urban city doesn’t mean that you are greater from those who live in the rural areas, nor it doesn’t mean that your accent from a high class society matters and can make you a better person.

How sad that there are people who are particular with the accent instead of the content or thought?

How sad that there are people degrading others and even oneself because of this colonial mentality?

How sad that there are people who have gone wicked just to conform with the high class society?

How shallow can these people be?

Relax and have fun watching this video.

Warning:  Some of the accents were exaggerated and can be offensive.
