    Philip

    You will never find a more ballsless people anywhere on the planet.

    In which other country can a foreign national walk in from (mostly) a third world country and take over good jobs and live better than the locals?

    have almost no education, show gangster-like mentality, verbally or physically abuse the locals and have the police and government bow before them?

    Then take lots of money back to their home countries and live like kings?

    Nowhere.

    @ I Love This

    THIS IS EXACTLY HAPPENING in at least SOME BANKS & FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS too, if only time-pressed and dumb trusting customers are more alert and scrutinising of details/surreptitious conduct.

    Believe me, at least one financial institution is behaving like an unlawful organisation in the dark of legalising fraudulent conduct, now caught redhanded and behaving like a cut angry s*ake.

    THE DETERIORATION INTO SOCIAL ANOMIE IS REAL, and LEE-jiapore has deteriorated to this extent.

  • Healers beware the scoundrels!:

    …. I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. *Above all, I must not play God.

    I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, *whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick….

    @Phillip; let me break down the $283 further for you!!

    It includes salary of Minister, Second Minister, Acting Minister, Perm Sec, 2nd Perm Sec, other staff of MOH. Also those non-nursing admin staff checking visitors, security personnel and cleaners. Don’t forget the gardeners and the concierge open your taxi door. Also the plants in the garden and the fountains.

    These would be about 60% of the cost. Without these your illness cannot be cured.

  • @Asd --- a sad rejoinder:

    An Indian pharmocologist acquaintance was overly-surprised when I told him that our MOH is “semi-privatised” (whatever that means for corporate entities), that the sale of prescribed medicines is administered by the ministry’s in-house pharmacies.

    He remarked that even in India, like in most countries, they did away with that some thirty years ago. Every patient has the option to purchase medicines from a wide array of private government-approved pharmacies in open competition….

  • Harder Truths:

    People have to understand that citizens are just worker ants for the government.

    People’s whole lives are for working and giving whatever they earn to a small group of despotic lawmakers who could not care less about whether they go hungry or die.

    Hospitals are for profit only just like everything else – subsidies mean nothing if you are paying for it by the backdoor.

    Every citizen is to be fully taken advantage of from birth to death.
    Every one is replaceable. Everyone is a statistic – nothing more.

    If you think you are dealing with normal people who can change – then you are dreaming.

    pap is mad. it takes public good as a business to make S$m, for themselves.

    land, PUBLIC LAND, acquired on the cheap to build public hospitals has land costs which pap prices into their pap FAKE subsidized pricing.

    as with all things man made, sooner or later the dam shall break. we belong to the earlier generation with landed assets acquired on the cheap. we are ok. but we shake our heads whenever we see sheep without S$m voting pap.

    friends ask how come we never voted pap. didn’t we do well under pap. we say, we never voted pap because it is a political party that is dishonest, with pap laws that ensure pap folks S$m via a pliant pap parleement.

    Yes. Unfortunately Malaysians are smarter despite having lesser graduates by proportion compare to Singapore.

    When Bossku assigned all his cronies to cover his hand dipping into 1MDB cookie jug, Malaysians sensed it instantly. Singaporeans despite being smarter, were none the wiser on GIC, GLC, Reserve, CPF, Temasek.

    Knowing PAP, its MPs and Ministers always blow its trumpet and beating its drums when there was something good happened. When they say nothing or gave no answer even when asked, they were hiding something big and ugly.

    But Singaporeans just let it be and still vote for the unknown!!

    Having said that, Bossku cannot compare to our “husband and wife” team.

  • Don’t we know that the government of Singapore is a scam itself ?

    - Fake statistic
    - Business man as government
    - Giving bullshit here and there
    - wayang clowns
    etc- surely you can find more…

    if gst and subsidy, why not the government apply it to themselves ? Give them low salary , but help them with gst and subsidy ? Oh cannot, government must abuse and take advantages of sinkies, not themselves.

    best of all, notice that increasing cost of here and there, then tell us the government is here to help us with subsidy ? Wow, wonder why private business company couldn’t do that, only government and their companies can do that ?

    Increase electricity fee, and act blur and make sure no PAP mp raise this questions in parliament. WOW, first world.

    Make parliament record video difficult to obtain so the clowns can hide their joke and nonsense.

    Wow, increasing compulsory premium without justification knowing that only few percent of people want to use consider that they too have to bear some cost , wow, stupid Singaporeans , is it ? Oh we charge you compulsory expensive stuff knowing that you won’t use it anyway.

    Still deceive the world with their nonsense.

  • Kudos to Mr Phillip Ang:

    I would totally agree with Mr Phillip Ang. This is something that I had always felt that we have been overcharged and conned. Just like the Medishield insurance that after so called subsidy of $350, I still need to fork out about $450 for the yearly premium. I dun understand why the premium is high and dun even know what are the coverage!
    This is mandatory, auto deduction from my CPF. I won’t be able to pay for this year and probably will have to go to JAIL???
    This country is getting from bad to worst. There are many filipinos working in ABC shops and Valueshops and filipino manager wear the uniform with the word MANAGER printed. Today encounter a private bus driver that transport people to Zoo. The woman driver is from CHINA from her language accent.
    What’s going here on??? Every man for himself! Sunddenly they stopped broadcasting old films on LKY and Singapore! What a shame!

    Please stop quoting this crazy old man call LKY. Isn’t this clown the root cause of Singapore’s issue ? Abuse of power, taking advantages of law and people,etc, isn’t he is the main cause of why PAP behave like this, mini-clowns just follow his examples ? He is exact replica of PAP and what PAP do is exactly what that clown doing all along.

    oh, we have tons of sinkies money in our coffer, but we must find ‘legal’way to make it become ours , after all we are pure white , isn’t we ?

    But no worry, this always work. We up the cost of living to help the sinkies, by increase cost of living and increasing the compulsory premium, but but, sinkies still paid a bit, while the rest will subsidize by taxpayer money ….
    no wonder we, cleanest government is the long surviving government in the world like no wonder because we are pure white . We become billionaire and millionaire government through use of subsidy scam , how genius are we ! There is WeWork, but we call ourselves WeGov ….Long live WeGov !

    Excerpt from a todayonline letter Jan 15:

    …” wonder why different restructured hospitals here sell the same medicine at drastically different prices.

    My mother, who has glaucoma, recently found out that she has been paying S$45.80 for a 3ml bottle of Lumigan (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution 0.01 per cent) eye drops at National University Hospital for some years, while her friend pays only S$34.24 for the same thing at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. ”
