Seeing the video of Jamal Al Omar's gang buying votes really disgusted and angered me. Jamal Al Omar is not the only buyer; plenty of candidates hoping for a seat in the Kuwait Parliament are buying votes also. What really made it sickening was after selling their honor for cash, these filthy people put their unclean hand on the holy Quran and swore to Allah, their children and on their non existent honor to be true to their word as a guarantee.
How cheap can these people be? If I pay someone 500 KD for his vote? What does that make him? What else is on sale here and how much will it cost?
That reminded me of an anectode about George Bernard Shaw who was talking with an aristocratic lady in a party. Bernard Shaw with tongue in cheek proposed “Lady, would you like to sleep with me for a million dollars”. The lady replied, “why not?” The next question of Bernard Shaw was bolder. “Will you sleep with me for ten dollars?” The lady pulled herself to her full height and asked, “Do you think I am a prostitute?” Bernard Shaw coolly replied, “We have already established that fact, what we are doing now is negotiating the rates”.
Moral of the story: Vote with honor for someone that has honor, and keep the crap out of parliament.
