It sounded so good

Government stepping up measures to support parents, details to be announced in the coming months- lhl in his CNY message.

As usual, it sounded so good but I am not optimistic at all. To me, it only sounded so good. Period! Let me explain.

Lhl is not a new prime minister. He has been Singapore’s 3rd PM since August 2004, shy of 2 decades and under his watch, our national Total Fertility Rates (TFR) have been falling and falling and falling and still falling.

There are many reasons for our pathetic TFR and among them a younger and better educated women population tend to marry later and have fewer children etc but chief among them must be the very, very expensive cost of bringing up children in a very stressful and expensive Singapore.

Unlike what pap ministars pay themselves, a large percentage of our citizens only earn very modest income and that is not a secret.

Over the years under lhl’s watch and Josephine Teo’s helming the National Population and Talent Division (NPTD) which is in the PMO, too much of too little serious and too late efforts were made to tackle our falling TRF and our TRF continues falling unabated and now with the GST increase, it must require an extraordinary sucking idiot to believe lhl’s story again.

To lhl, I will tell him that his best days and his best efforts are over. I do not believe in fairy tales and grandmother stories anymore. Unlike many fellow citizens, I do not suck government’s pep talks blindly and unquestionably. I think harder and when one dares and is willing to think about things and issues harder, a brand new horizon opens up.

Think.

  • only stupid people vote pap:

    on the contrary to pap BS, living space is very important in the TFR. by building smaller and smaller HDB units, it is only madness to expect more and more babies.

    we always remind sinkies Singapore is an island nation with natural selection of about 3m+ local born. by admitting 3.9m aliens, pap has in its action doubled the number of mouths.

    3,9m aliens in an island of 3m bring many problems, from pollution to quality of life to all things bad. sinkies who feel pressed must wake up. the pressure can be removed very easily. just vote out pap when the next GE comes along. immediately, there is light at the end of the tunnel. the air clears and the breathing becomes so much smoother, and more natural.

    Out in the shiny night
    The rain was softly falling
    Tracks that ran down the boulevard
    Had all been washed away

    Out of the silver light
    The past came softly calling
    And I remember the times we spent
    Inside the sad cafe

    Oh it seemed like a holy place
    Protected by amazing grace
    We would sing right out loud
    The things we could not say

    We thought we could change this world
    With words like love and freedom
    We were part of the lonely crowd
    Inside the sad cafe

    Oh… expecting to fly
    We would meet on that beautiful shore
    In the sweet by and by

    Some of their dreams came true
    Some just passed away
    Some of them stayed behind
    Inside the sad cafe

    The clouds rolled in
    And hid that shore
    Now that glory train
    It don’t stop here no more

    (Ooh…) Now I look at the years gone by
    (Ooh…) And wonder at the powers that be
    (Ooh…) I don’t know why fortune smiles on some
    (Ooh…) And lets the rest go free
    Umm-umm

    Maybe the time has drawn
    Faces I recall
    But things in this life change very slowly
    If they ever change at all

    No use in asking why
    Just turned out that way
    So meet me at midnight baby
    Inside the sad cafe
    Why don’t you meet me at midnight baby?

  • I don’t care anymore:

    I already buay song no free medical for elderly when they already purchased medical insurance and even more buay song there is no employment law protection for singaporean opening the doors open for foreigners to discriminate Singaporean. I feel very sad we bring in lots of low productivity and quality third world workers from South Asia and some Southeast Asia countries (Myanmar, Philippines) which is killing our economy competitiveness that will hurt in long term, at the same time deprive our better true blue Singaporean workers.

    I will not act like the HK/Taiwan pro independence people who are being make use by US NGO/NED to carry out vandalism and other actions to destabilise their own society but I will quietly leave this country where I have served 2.5 years of national service. I will still continue to vote for opposition at overseas consulate/embassy.

    I admire the people first china government but not the economy first (at the expense of people) Singapore government.

    Good luck Singapore. I really don’t care you doing good or bad. I have stopped watching local tv, newspapers, etc for years (I don’t know what are the latest CPF policies, other policies which I don’t care anymore). I have China in mind and look very much forward to.

  • About smaller HDB:

    Someone told me HDB employ ceceans to design HDB flat???

    Looks like the job sectors are expanding year after year for cecea obligation.

    In contrast, more and more Philippinos in retail, shops, service sectors are replaced by Singaporean which is a good sign. We also need to see this in IT, Finance, sectors where Singaporean are easily displaced due to job discrimination by hiring managers which love to recruit their own people especially village. When more and more Singaporean displaced, they loose the skills and knowledge and the singaporean talent pools for such sector shrink over the years – that’s why government must have employment laws protect singaporean.
