I tried to revert back to my old wallpaper, but that option wasn’t available to me.

I tried to google my problem but I couldn’t get anywhere. I was instead forwarded  to random websites (browser hijacks???).

My reaction was, “oh shit, what now…

U.S. Government Bailout Plan rejected, and the stock market had one of its biggest one-day drop in history

If you have been following the news for the past 24 hours, you know what I’m talking about.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim: Countdown to the Government Change on the 16th September?

So, what do you guys think? Will 16th September materialise? Will we have a new government?

In my honest opinion, I don’t think it will happen. Even if it did, to me, that’s not democracy in action. That’s just a bunch of politicians defecting. However, if indeed we’ll have a new government come 16th September 2008, I do hope it’ll be a change for the better, not the worse.
