Cruel ironies : Obama’s credit card declined. can Rosmah’s credit card be declined in Malaysia

 Apparently, even the president of the United States can have trouble with his credit card.


Barack Obama on Friday said his card was declined at a New York restaurant he went to while visiting the United Nations.

“I was there during the General Assembly, and my credit card was rejected,” Obama said at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, where he unveiled new measures to stem credit card fraud and identity theft.

“It turned out, I guess I don’t use it enough. So they thought there was some fraud going on,” he said to laughter, adding “fortunately, Michelle had hers.”

The president signed an executive order which adds “chip-and-pin” protection for US government cards and payment terminals, at a time when the financial industry is moving in the same direction.

“I was trying to explain to the waitress, no, I really think that I’ve been paying my bills,” Obama said.

“Even I’m affected by this.”

Political leaders  have often goaded Malaysians to target ambitious goals often through moral persuasion or by promising huge funds as assistance. It was a language which UMNO leaders usually had no difficulties in grasping.

The Prime Minister’s Department’s expenditure continues to grow under Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s watch, with spending significantly higher than when Dr Mahathir Mohamad was in power

Can anyone remember who was the person to tell Malaysians to “change our lifestyle” when costs were rising fast a number of years back? The person is now still having the biggest budget in the government. Talking about leadership by example!

It boggles the mind on the high PMD expenditure is the private jet flying to ‘extra’ destinations.

why the PMD gets such huge allocations for itself when there are the various Ministries to manage the nation. The PMD should restrict itself to overseeing and monitoring the ministries and not take upon itself functions that can be handled by them. I wonder if the Auditor General has powers to audit how funds are managed and utilised in the PMD as I cannot recall such scrutiny in his annual audit reports.

that systematic corruption is violation of human rights as it leads to economic crisis and that corruption is a serious malady undermining the very health of polity. Cannot be better-said and ample grounds for dismissal of the bail application was cited. The courts are now fast tracking cases of corruption by public servants.readmorehttp://themalaybusinesstribune.blogspot.com/2014/10/rosmah-her-delightful-belly-dance-good.html
