Countdown

12 Mar, '08

countdown.gifThe observant amongst you might have noticed the re-appearance of the countdown clock panel on the right. I thought of putting it up as a reminder that their days are numbered, so if they want to make a difference and etch their name in history for doing good to get with the program and leave those shenanigans for their own time and leave it to those who might be impressed.

We’re not.

Parliament is put in place to guarantee more freedoms and for the protection of a better way of life, not to hinder and further curtail limited rights.

But do you notice that any time something important is at the doorstep they descend into a quagmire? It’s as if someone is using the MPs inexperience effectively; all they need do is throw a bone and watch the show… while the things that do matter go on unnoticed right in front of their noses!

    its our fault (the people) for putting these hooligans in place. before the next elections i would love if we can start a real awareness initiative to tell people hOW they should select a candidate, and not just because they pray or theyre a neighbor a friend, but because they are rational people capable of initiating the process of change… sigh

    Guys,
    you never know, it might be closer then we think. A lot of talking of dissolving the parliament these days!

  6. Mahmood,
    It’s my birthday. Can I have a counter for my blog too?

    Ok .. It isn’t my birthday ..Can I please have the codes to put the counter on my blog too?

    😛

    Of course my dear and happy birthday too!

    Here’s the PHP code:

    just copy and paste it into your sidebar and amend the dates appropriately and you should be fine. There is a widget that you can use (which is NOT compatible with the forthcoming 2.5 release of WordPress – the author promised to fix the situation soon) at http://ottodestruct.com/blog/2006/04/09/fun-with-widgets/

    have fun with this thing, I originally got it from a Xaraya plugin if I remember correctly and just used it as is since then.

    Here’s a trick, if you put a past date, it will give you a “days since” countUP!
