Why be a busybody when we are lacking in social welfare

It is disturbing to know that our gov spent $20 million of public money arranging logistical and security arrangements for Trump-Kim summit.

The US Treasury Department has sanctions that prevent tax payers money to be used on ‘hostile’ nations or any regimes they deemed to violate Human Rights. In this case, North Korea.

In Singapore, we have no such policies and in fact, we regularly foot the bill for world leaders with atrocious human rights record.

Worst still, Minister Shanmugam peddled fear to us by saying that North Korea might hit Singapore with missiles to justify the $20 million price tag.

The culmination of this wasteful spending can be seen when our Ministers happily snapping away selfies with people of ill repute internationally.

We are going to the dogs if we continue to waste tax payers money on such stuff when our social spending is nowhere near other developed nations.

At this rate, our elderly will need to continue working beyond their golden years as our leaders prefer to bask in the limelight rather than getting their priorities right.

  • clown pap and S$m gang members:

    clown pap groupthink is serious.

    look at some clown S$m members. when they were not yet inducted into clown pap S$m gravy train, they were vocal with many hard facts about clown pap. but once they are inducted into clown pap clan having tasted S$m clown pap gravy what a change. clown pap suddenly cannot do anything wrong. when asked to raise social welfare by a few dollars can even come out with ffffing foodcourt or hawker centre comparison.

    clown pap S$m corrupts. clown pap S$m S$m S$m corrupts absolutely.

  • Stupidity:

    Govt debts have been running up badly yet such wasteful of resources in this way.

    More taxes in the pipeline likely coming up will be salt tax.

    Good news.

    Oh well! If Trump and Kim want to meet again next week, our ministers will be more than willing to come up with another lump of big money to welcome them. And our ministers will start drawing lots to see who’s next to take selfies with the murderer cum torturer cum thug. Pinky says we voted for them. What can we say?

  • Image down the drain:

    Not only for logistic and security but including prestige class lodging, accommodation and food for the entire NK personnel and Kim.

    As if is not stupid enough, It would be doubly stupid if they extend this public money, lavish, irresponsible and careless spending on the US side as well??? Don’t know but WP should probe.

    I would agree with why Trump would call out PM as “meek”. Generally most would most likely seen this as weak, seeking and begging for status acceptance.

    Image down the drain, face wash the long-gao, don’t you think?

  • Money not ours:

    It is their own money they believe. They rather scrimp on giving less pension and performance bonus as proven in civil service let alone on people welfare. But they are paid millions hence the money they believed are well spent while locals live as stingy budget people who can only flocked to retail closing down sales and value dollar shops. The vicious cycle continues spirally downwards.

  • Bapak:

    I am sure the two of them (Trump & Kim) love that sucker country so much they will like to come back again.

    After the meeting, Trump went up Air Force One laughed until rolling on the floor. Kim also. On the air, Kim called Trump to do it again. Trump said “why not, we have found a sucker!”.

  • Selfish Sinkie Syndrome:

    Jin Hsieh Lan:
    Oh well! ….

    …. Pinky says we voted for them. What can we say?

    Well, Pinky may be shameless but his statement is still factually correct.

    69.9% will still mindlessly encourage him on and say “Yes, We did vote for Pay and Pay and he is the best because opposition is “not ready lah!” (whatever “ready” means, over the past 50 years of still getting “ready”).

    Will a 50 year old intern ever be successful or deemed to be a hopeless failure forever?

    In his bid to secure his PAP empire into posterity, the Machiavellian KY has managed to box the “opposition” into an impossible quandary, namely by repeatedly training Singaporeans to think that “opposition is not ready”.

    Hence, the longer the opposition is “not ready”, the worse it gets and the more “not ready” they become in a vicious and never-ending downward cycle.

    It is somewhat like a situation of hiring a 30 year old in a role as an intern, then a 40 year old internship is even more hopeless right?

    Then, you wait another 10 years to get that 40 year old intern to be “ready” for the job, which means the “opposition” becomes a 50 year old intern and an even bigger failure by then….and on and on.

    The longer he/she stays as an intern, the worse it gets and the stronger the label sticks. This is the near-perfect plan of the crafty KY to forever kill his competition, and it worked to a t.

    Except his devious little political plot also killed any slim chance for positive change in political leadership or a new vision for the nation.
    Thus, stagnation and complacency set-in over the decades while the external world continues to change ever more rapidly.

    Anyway, I know Singapore is really F’ked now, when I see MPs insouciantly taking wefies with a mass murderer or street people cheering for the dictator with “I love you, Kim!” like he is some kind of K-Pop star entertaining them with a gangnam routine.

    I guess we can only say 69.9% of Singaporeans are so well-trained over 50 years and are so used to dictatorial regimes that they immediately recognize a fat one when they see it and automatically cheer for it?

  • HarderTruths:

    We used to be able to look after our own people at one time. People were willing to go the extra mile to do thing because $G mattered to us.

    Now it matters not. The government has only need for its own existence and everything that went before is destroyed in case it conflicts with the new order.

    Such an aggregate of commercial speculators will one day take flight leaving a drained corpse of a greed-infested society. The road quick to riches blindly followed always leads to a social and economic collapse.

    Even no missiles , their spy carrying out assassinations or chemical warfare attack also dot kong. Just look at the case of kim’s brother who tio poison and pass away in malaysia.

    Very early 80′s there was a female NK spy Kim Hyon-hui whos also with quite dot kong looks one, sneaked in SK and successfully blown up some plane along with its passengers.

    Dont play play.

  • Stupidity a deadly crime:

    Only stupidity would believe world peace lies in the meeting between two lunatics. However it is more stupid to spend good monies just to shake hands and be photograph with them taking history is made. Yes history is made to reaffirm birds of the same feather flock together. One builds a wall keeping away shame and ugliness of homo stupidus. Ome slaughtered his uncle n brother to on the power to build so as to scare the wall buider to bow to his wishes. Leaving one spit upon by own siblings and has only power to bully a little with all his spineless lp lickers helping him to spice up the lies and bestiality. $ to write the records of three greatest scumbags while neglecting the duties sworn to the faith he knows not to honor but soil it with his scum.

  • STUPIDER AND STUPID:

    What Sham say is really STUPIDER for a person of his calibre.

    Goh Sotong once said the ministers pay should increase because Singapores’ ministers do not have AIR FORCE ONE to use. This I assumed is for their transport to work.

    WE SINGAPOREANS ARE PAYING THESE USELESS MINISTERS TO SAY THESE WORDS???!!!!!!
