Something is not right

1. We have overall budget surplus of over 2 billion dollars. But GST will still be increased to 9%.

2. We were told numerous times that the gov will tackle the high cost of living but Singapore is still perched at the top of the list for most expensive cities to live in the world.

3. We scored high on Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) which is good thing but we fared terribly in crony capitalsim index. Cambridge dictionary states that crony capitalism is an economic system in which family members and friends of gov officials and business leaders are given unfair advantages in the form of jobs, loan, opportunities, etc.

4. We are conned into thinking that we own our house but in reality, after 99 years of leasing, it goes back to the gov. Singapore is ranked 2nd most expensive city to buy a house. Where is our affordable public housing?

5. We have hundreds of thousands of dollars in our CPF account but we are as poor as a church mouse. Sometimes we don’t even have enough to pay for our medical fees but our CPF shows 6 digit figures. Ironic.

6. Electricity tariffs keep increasing although SP Group posted profits averaging 1 billion annually.

7. Tudung banned in uniformed groups. We are still in caveman era.

8. Eight people died from Hep C outbreak in 2016. Confidential information of HIV patients data leaked. We still have the same minister of Health. No accountability.

9. Tax payers bore the cost of Tump and Kim summit in Singapore to the tune of 40 million dollars. Drawing tax payers money to host a racist like Donald Tump and a dictator like Kim Jung Un for them to enjoy in posh hotels is a slap on the face to those underpriviledge people who are sleeping on the street.

10. After 54 years of independence, a non-chinese is still deemed as not suitable to be the prime minister of Singapore despite yahoo poll that showed otherwise.

  • What is NOT RIGHT:

    The only thing WORSE THAN all the above-mentioned by writer is :

    1. All these problems can be stopped. Policies reversed. Regime changed. Just need one day of GE.

    BUT even if the people are angry, they DARE NOT Vote them out.

    This is worst of all problems.

    Any questionable laws can be changed with regime change. Any lousy leader can be removed from office.

    But the Entity that can do this is the People. There is no people power not because of the garment . The People themselves have No Courage. That’s the Mother of all THATS NOT RIGHT.

    So, NO MATTER HOW GOOD A OPPOSITION LEADER YOU GET NO FOLLOWERS.

    When a govt governs by “wayang kulit”, we and the international communities also know that they have other better ideas than well known govt in other really advance countries. What then is the ideal of this local gagament then? No guessing needed unless one is a follower of some sort with little use of his/her own mind… meaning easily to be lead by their hands… you know what I mean.

    Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth … Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value (to family and society)… Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts is countable.

  • What is Democracy?:

    What IS NOT RIGHT is :

    Singaporeans do not seem to be hungry for democracy.
    It’s been backfiring at them, their this misguided thinking.

    There IS ALWAYS A NEED FOR PEOPLE POWER. eg. Mini bonds. Cpf lockup delayed payout unless min amount met. Hyfuxk . Academics against anti fake news law.
    There is no one left to help them.

    IF SINGAPOREANS REALLY WANT DEMOCRACY THEY WOULD HAVE DARED TO VOTE FOR CHANGE LONG AGO. IF YOU REALLY WANT SOMETHING YOU DARE TAKE A RISK. BUT THEY DON’T. FEAR IS NOT AN EXCUSE FOR DOING SOMETHING THAT ONLY YOU CAN PERFORM. ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN VOTE PAP OUT.

    The smurfs, spiderman or gummy bears cannot vote for change. PAP unlikely to vote themselves out. So the people don’t want people power, don’t want democracy.

  • HarderTruths:

    The system has been set up to draw out every $G worker’s life savings and channel it into holding companies that are owned by a few individuals.

    We work to pay back what we have been loaned. We own nothing because we can afford nothing and there is nothing by law that we can own. Not even ourselves.

    What you see is the process of $G citizens being kept alive as cattle to be sucked dry. Slave labour is exactly the same – only there is no illusion of ownership.

  • Regime change is the solution:

    10 compelling reasons for REGIME CHANGE. Do not waste your vote. VTO. And, equally important, convince your family members and friends to do the same.

    GE2015 was supposed to be “payback time” but LKY’s death saved PAP. At the next GE this year no more LKY (he is ashes and will NEVER come back).

    Let us make the next GE the “mother-of-all paybacks” by following the example set by our Malaysian friends, and vote for REGIME CHANGE.

    PAP is a “spent force”. It is time to bury it with LKY so Singapore can move on and become a real democracy.

  • Something Not Right:

    Something is not Right when :

    1. We heard many people really worry that
    Votes have serial number means will be traced to them.
    What does this imply from their mentality? It means they worry someone will take the vote they casted and trace who this person is . How ridiculous this sounds!

    A. It means the ballot can be removed from the ballot box. This means cutting open the box.

    B. If this is done, do you think the box will look questionable?
    So, if it’s checked after votes counted, WHY THEN THE PEOPLE DON’T FORCE THE GARMENT TO HAVE A TRANSPARENT PROCESS IN PLACE WHERE ITS NOT POSSIBLE TO TEMPER THE BOX?

    WHY DO SINGAPOREANS JUST WORRY AND NOT DEMAND FOR SOLUTION?
    IF THEY SAY EVERYTHING IS NO USE, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE TO GET THIS DONE, ARE THEY NOT SAYING SINGAPORE IS NOT A DEMOCRACY WHERE THERE IS NO PEOPLE POWER?

    If there is no people power which is due to the People’s cowardice, then are you saying Singaporeans do not dare to afford Democracy or Want democracy?

    Something is definitely not right.

    C. If people fear the votes are accessed before the votes counted, does this not mean that they also believe that the votes can be tempered?

    Something is really not right about Singaporeans.

    I feel ashamed to be associated with them. So terribly weak people.
    I am really tempted to migrate. This is my only way to escape with my money .

  • Fake Govt Surplus:

    Budget surplus IS NOT the real surplus this government makes.

    Reasons:

    1. Budget surplus is the surplus ONLY from the items the government want to include in the Budget. There are BIG item income that the government excludes from the Budget.

    These extra-Budget items include
    a) the estimated long term investment return, at least $10 billion, probably a lot more.
    b) land sales, usually about $20 billion a year
    c) “management fee” from managing our $400 billion CPF fund. Estimated $20 to $40 billion a year.

    2) Many “spending” items in the Budget are not real expenditure, billion dollar old folks funds. There are really future spendings for the next 40 , 50 years.

    Anybody who says the government surplus is $2 billion is spreading BIG FAKE news. The real government surplus is easily more than $50 billion each year.

  • More Pain Needed:

    What is not right?
    The doors were opened wide since 1993, already more than a quarter of a century.
    The full extend of the flawed policies were felt since 2000.
    The avalanche of massive failures started in 2010.

    So very much had already been caopeh in TRE and for so very long..
    So you telling and writing that something is wrong with the country now??

    What a typical highly educated sinkie numskull dimwit!!

    In fact TRE should close shop in 2015, lick arse and become crony stooges for greedy ministars instead rather than continuing for hopeless sinkies.

    An eager netizen used to keep a long listing of few hundred failures and diligently put them in comment section right up till 2015, had rightly gave up and disappeared.

    Rather than wasting time, just let pain, more pain to do the job.

  • Isn't it obvious.? p2:

    cont
    administration n have to consult foreign university perhaps to build relationship by paying rediculous consultation fees. Some retired academic gathered to have their joy comrade time in kopitiam were heard of their discussion on the matter. It seemed unanimous that the best deterrent is to publish the name of the offender with his photo avross the campus n repor to the mainstream the full detail of the offender n more effectively the names of his parents. This is what pap did to Amos. Some even conjectured that the student could be the son of somebody rich n famous. Reflecting on the words of these old academic disciplinarians, the punishment is definitely a sure deterrent n a warning to parents to have more care n concern over their children n not just pump them with money.

    NFI seems to be the icon of pimps and prostitutes n their oversized harem of plps n GFWs now even stretching to the higher institute of learning supposedly to train our next generation of leaders. No wonder it is generally perceived that the academics themselves send their children to overseas universities presumably they think differently from the university graders which a couple rate nus n nti highly for mysteriously reasons when the universities stinks of fraud publications n wide spread free riders in publication n ludicrous promotion n recruitments! No national university in the world will have an academic staff of almost entirely foreigners. How could they pass down national identity n concern for their fellowmen. No wonder v2: 3 n 4 of the ruling party are akin themselves to foreigners than their own citizens.
