Go, Squeeze Them (GST).

Our Rakyat do not fully understand the implication of GST, until it is implemented and prices of goods spiralling upwards. By then it is too late.

A rich country like Singapore introduced GST at 3%.

A poor Malaysia wants to implement GST at 4%

GST is a multi-stage tax system. ( TRY TO UNDERSTAND THIS !!!!!)

Everything the sellers sold, from manufacturer, wholesaler to retailers, collect GST for the government. Unlike the the current sales and service tax (SST) is a single-stage tax. Only one party along the supply chain collect the SST for the government. If the manufacturer collects the tax, the rest are not allowed to collect.

Just imagine every seller add GST when they sell. (READ N TRY TO UNDERSTAND THIS !!!!! )

For example: The current Sales Tax for Toilet soap is 10%. With GST, the manufacturer pays 4% to the govt when he sells it to the Wholesaler, the Wholesaler pays the govt another 4% when he sells to a Retailer; and when the Retailer sells it to the Consumer, he pays another 4% to the govt. The Consumer actually ends up paying more than 12% in cummulative GSTs for the same piece of soap or > 20% more in taxes. (10% vs 12%+++)

1) Manufacture to Wholesaler - RM 1.00 + 4% ( RM 0.04 ) = 1.04

2) Wholesaler to Retailer - RM 1.04 + 4% ( RM 0.42) = 1.082

3) Retailer to Consumer ( idiots like you and me )

- RM 1.082 + 4% ( RM0.043) = 1.125


If the supply chain is longer than 3 stages, the consumer ends up paying 4% more for each addition stage. Eg Manufacturer to Agent (4%) to Wholsaler (4%) to Retailer (4%) to Consumer (4%).. Total 16% ++++ (vs 10%) or 60% more in taxes!!!!

( This final price that idiots like you and me have to pay is RM 1.17 equivalent to 17% TAX or RM0.17 for every Ringgit of the manufacturers price) on this FOUR tiers system

If the GST is not stopped, the Rakyat will ended up paying very very very high prices for everything. ( that is why it is call the GO, SQUEEZE THEM - GST )

Now do you agree when the rakyat say that Malaysia is going bankrupt ?

This is the main reason why the GST was introduced - to increase the government's income.

The next logical question is - Where did all the tax money collected go ??????
Akal, Mata dan Hati :-
Apa rakyat Malaysia dah kaya raya sangat ke? Apa nasib org kampung? Dah la sekarang ni beli barang mahal atas alasan kos pengangkutan yang tinggi. Tak lama lg makin bertambah mahal la harga barang. dah tak de cara lain nak tambah income kerajaan? Betul kata penulis di atas, kemana perginya kutipan cukai dan sumber 2 lain? Adakah ianya untuk pembangunan yang mengkayakan puak2 mereka sehingga tersenarai antara orang terkaya di Malaysia?
Gaji rakyat Malaysia (pekerja swasta) pula tidak diberi gaji minimum. Kerajaan takut pulak dengan pihak luar (pelabur). Mahu pulak kerajaan tindas rakyat Malaysia dan gaji tak seberapa.

Chile Earthquake May Have Shortened Days on Earth Staff Staff – Tue Mar 2, 10:00 am ET
The massive 8.8 earthquake that struck Chile may have changed the entire Earth's rotation and shortened the length of days on our planet, a NASA scientist said Monday.

The quake, the seventh strongest earthquake in recorded history, hit Chile Saturday and should have shortened the length of an Earth day by 1.26 milliseconds, according to research scientist Richard Gross at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

"Perhaps more impressive is how much the quake shifted Earth's axis," NASA officials said in a Monday update.

The computer model used by Gross and his colleagues to determine the effects of the Chile earthquake effect also found that it should have moved Earth's figure axis by about 3 inches (8 cm or 27 milliarcseconds).

The Earth's figure axis is not the same as its north-south axis, which it spins around once every day at a speed of about 1,000 mph (1,604 kph).

The figure axis is the axis around which the Earth's mass is balanced. It is offset from the Earth's north-south axis by about 33 feet (10 meters).

Strong earthquakes have altered Earth's days and its axis in the past. The 9.1 Sumatran earthquake in 2004, which set off a deadly tsunami, should have shortened Earth's days by 6.8 microseconds and shifted its axis by about 2.76 inches (7 cm, or 2.32 milliarcseconds).

One Earth day is about 24 hours long. Over the course of a year, the length of a day normally changes gradually by one millisecond. It increases in the winter, when the Earth rotates more slowly, and decreases in the summer, Gross has said in the past.

The Chile earthquake was much smaller than the Sumatran temblor, but its effects on the Earth are larger because of its location. Its epicenter was located in the Earth's mid-latitudes rather than near the equator like the Sumatran event.

The fault responsible for the 2010 Chile quake also slices through Earth at a steeper angle than the Sumatran quake's fault, NASA scientists said.

"This makes the Chile fault more effective in moving Earth's mass vertically and hence more effective in shifting Earth's figure axis," NASA officials said.

Gross said his findings are based on early data available on the Chile earthquake. As more information about its characteristics are revealed, his prediction of its effects will likely change.

The Chile earthquake has killed more than 700 people and caused widespread devastation in the South American country.

Several major telescopes in Chile's Atacama Desert have escaped damage, according to the European Southern Observatory managing them.

A salt-measuring NASA satellite instrument destined to be installed on an Argentinean satellite was also undamaged in the earthquake, JPL officials said.

The Aquarius instrument was in the city of Bariloche, Argentina, where it is being installed in the Satelite de Aplicaciones Cientificas (SAC-D) satellite. The satellite integration facility is about 365 miles (588 km) from the Chile quake's epicenter.

The Aquarius instrument is designed to provide monthly global maps of the ocean's salt concentration in order to track current circulation and its role in climate change.

Akal, Mata dan Hati :-
Umur bumi makin singkat. Sains dan membuktikan apa yang tercatat didalam Al Quran itu benar. Kiamat semakin hampir namun kita masih lagi leka dengan duniawi. Masih mengejar keduniaan dan tidak seimbang dengan akhirat. Kita masih leka dengan maksiat/hiburan yang membazirkan dan melalaikan.

Kita masih terikut - ikut rentak Yahudi dan nasrani yang mahu kita menemani mereka ke neraka jahanam. Sedarlah wahai ummah. Petunjuk kebesaran Allah sudah jelas lagi terang. Jangan leka dengan arus dunia.
