Politics in Few Words

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is Politics?”
Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way:

I am the head of the family, so call me The President.
Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.
We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People.
The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class.
And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.
Now think about that and see if it makes sense.”

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parent’s room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy say’s to his father, “Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.” The father says, “Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about.”

The little boy replies, “The President is screwing the Working Class while the Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep sh-t.”

A lobbyist, on his way home from work in Washington, D.C., came to a dead halt in traffic and thought to himself, “Wow, this seems worse than usual.”

He noticed a police officer walking between the lines of stopped cars, so he rolled down his window and asked, “Officer, what’s the hold-up?”

The officer replied, “The President is depressed, so he stopped his motorcade and is threatening to douse himself in gasoline and set himself on fire. “He says no one believes his stories about why we went to war in Iraq, or the connection between Saddam and al-Qa’ida, or that his tax cuts will help anyone except his wealthy friends; the press called him on the lie about Iraq trying to buy uranium from Niger, and now Campbell Brown is threatening to sue him for a sexual innuendo he made at a recent press conference. So we’re taking up a collection for him.”

The lobbyist asks, “How much have you got so far?”

The officer replies, “About 14 gallons, but a lot of folks are still siphoning.”

Why my blog has been removed?

Dear Readers and Blog's Fans;

First of all, I would like to apologize for inaccessibility of Cambodian Bright Future blog ( at the moment. This blog has been initiated by a young Cambodian since 2007 to critically discuss the possible changes and bringing improvement to Cambodia. This disability is in a process of trying to activate it back with the Google Inc.

My first assumption has fallen upon following causes:
  1. My accessing password has been hacked
  2. My blog is wrongly placed as spam by Google
  3. My blog has discharged many unhappy contents for Cambodian government and their irregular relationship with Vietnam
The 3rd assumption is an alarming sign that there are many technology savvies of Cambodian government and Vietnam to undermine this blog. But it might not be like that because Google experts will never allow others to ably destroy their reputation in this world of technology. However, if the complaints can force Google to shut down or remove this blog, it is worse and disastrous for democratic activists and freedom fighters in this planet. And I am worried about other blogs which are explicitly criticizing the government.

Let help to decode all these riddles, and reactivate this blog back as soon as we can.

With Solidarity,

Khmer Young
