Met a real STUPID person today!

"Right now we have Low Thia Khiang, Chiam See Tong, Steve Chia. We can deal with them. Suppose you had 10, 15, 20 opposition members in Parliament. Instead of spending my time thinking what is the right policy for Singapore, I'm going to spend all my time thinking what's the right way to fix them, to buy my supporters votes, how can I solve this week's problem and forget about next year's challenges?" -PM Lee, 3 May 2006.

"You will never respect people you can bribe. and whose allegiance can be bought with money" -a wise man.


Oh please these people attend a WP rally and they think they know everything. They really have to watch more CNA and read the Straits Times for information. When I knocked off from work yesterday, I could feel a headache coming so I took a few of those blue pills to pre-emptively get rid of it. I decided to take a cab home ....

The cab driver had a real problem. First he asked me who I'm voting for. I said obvious what...no need to think, only the PAP can offer upgrading. The cab driver snapped back, saying "The PAP has no ideas for this elections. They are using our tax payers' money to do all this upgrading and it is really unfair to link it with votes". Ooi, what does he mean by no ideas?!
The PAP has plenty of good ideas for this elections:

1. Lift stopping at every floor. That is an example of an excellent idea, nobody could have thought of it except the PAP. They (HDB) certainly didn' think of it when they build these flats for a period 30 years they build flats that don't stop at every floor. It is an idea that so hard to conceive it took 3 decades. See how smart the PAP is to think of it.

2. Covered walkways from bus stop. This is again a very smart idea. If there is no walkway people will get wet during the rain, the PAP has realised that it unpleasant to get wet. You must really give credit to the PAP for thinking of this, many of their MPs are rich so they don't take the bus, it is even more difficult for them to think of this idea. ...you really have to hand it to them.

3. Cleaning of void decks. After a few people wrote to the Straits Times complaining that their place have not been cleaned for 5 years, a team of PAP candidates went on the fours to clean a void deck. See the dedication, all these people have maids to clean their floor yet they make the effort to clean a void deck, they may look clueless at first, but managed to clean it anyway.

4. Ideas for estate renewal. I really like the fountain sculpture they say they will put up near my flat. I keep thinking it will be the single most important issue for me when I walk into the polling station whether I want that fountain or not. I'm sure many aunties and uncles living around me thinks the same way. Imagine every evening when the fountain is built, I can go there after dinner to watch it, ...how nice, in a few years time I'll feel so proud and smart to have voted for it. The flow of water and soothing lights will make me feel so happy. Estate renewal will bring happiness to so many Singaporeans, and Singaporeans so feel so privileged they get to vote for it.

With these 4 ideas I countered the tsxi driver's comments that the PAP has no ideas. The taxi driver was not happy to lose the argument, like many opposition supporters he is unable to appreciate the importance of his vote. He countered that it is disgusting that the PAP use upgrading as a threat to force people to vote for them besides upgrading uses tax payer's money. I told him straight most Singaporeans don't find it disgusting, we all feel so lucky to be voting for what we want. I told him not to be stupid, the higher the vote for his GRC, the higher on the priority list for upgrading, most Singaporeans who can will definitely vote to be higher on the priority list. The taxi driver snap back saying this is equivalent to vote buying and money politics, it obscures other issues like cost of living, and medical care etc. At this point I took down his taxi license plate number and his name. I think I have a case for filing a complain.

Your vote is important. Always remember what your vote means and the power it has. Vote wisely Singaporeans on Saturday.

If this is the case, then it's our national duty to vote for the PAP. Imagine, more than 3 opposition candidates in parliament and our government would face problems and must waste time to "fix them". How can we allow them to waste such valuable time? After all our highly paid ministers are dedicated people who are sacrificing their time for the nation. Surely they would be better off in the private sector who would be more than willing to pay these talents more than one million dollars per annum. That is why we need to make this as easy as possible for these PAP candidates, if not we would run the risk of losing all these talented people to the private sector. We ought to feel lucky that PAP always provides all these quality candidates, but they can only prove their abilities if they are voted into office (which they most likely will under the GRCs). This is why our vote matters

Yah Yah Yah vote them (opposition) in. Song mah, parliament will become top rate entertainment, viewship might even be better than American Idol. Our law and bill can take time to pass one, let the opposition hoot the government. Finally...their days have come, to stand in the face of government and oppose, oppose and oppose!! It's no good for the government to be able to implement policies smoothly, no, we need opposition opposition opposition. And opposition will do just that for the people who voted them in. You think vote them in to agree ah. If they don't show some opposition where got like opposition. Even if Gahmen is right, still cannot agree one, their supporters will be tulan. No.. it is very important to show that you are as kiang as the government. Kiang enough that they say one word, I can say two words back. My warehouse friend always say kiang ok but don't gey kiang. How true how true. PM Lee is politician, Low is politician even James Got-Meh also a politician. Don't pretend every opposition voted into parliament will argue for the sake of people. Everyone has an agenda. Opposition is not Mother Therasa. Vote in to check the gahmen?? See lah see lah...kiang ok don't gey kiang.

anonymous #2 - you think the govt doesn't gey kiang? aside from the top cadres in the cabinet, many of the MPs are non-entities, raising non-issues or not raising issues at all, and falling asleep when parliament is in session (on national tv no less). these PAP candidates don't need to be kiang. they don't even need to be gey kiang. they get a free ticket in because people are scared to contest the party, not the candidates.

Yesterday, one female PAP candidate was saying that Singapore is so safe and that you can leave your doors open and not worry that you'll get burglared. I feel so lucky that Singapore is so safe. Opposition parties make Singapore so noisy and I don't feel secure with so many people turning up for rallies near my block. Lucky they have riot police there to control the crowd, but the roars of disapproval (can't be approval right?) of the crowd at the opposition rallies is really frightening.

Not only that! I support Irene Ng, I will ask her with her logic that we can now remove the need for external auditors and independent directors for companies to save money. tell the staff and share holders it's actually safer and better when the 'fox is guarding the hen house'!!

You had taken the red pill. As Morpheus said, once you take the red pill, there is no turning back....

But fret not. Cypher managed to convince himself that the steak he was eating in the matrix tasted delicious....

happy citizen, i wanna comfirm..
are u supporting PAP or opposition. the way you write are like critising the PAP.

just like the fountain thing, they got money to build fountain, maids, but unable to help the citizens to reduce costs.

The government is going to scrutinise and see how blogs affect the elections results after the 2006 elections are over. Hopefully they will ban all blogs that discuss political or anti government issues. Singaporeans are not ready for it. Stirring up opposition fervour over the internet is certainly not good for our country and it affects our country's stability. It is really fortunate that the PAP is always willing to do what is right for our country.

I think not only they have to ban blog, they have to think of a way to filter out undesirable websites.

My idea for PAP is to ban internet totally because the harmful ideas from the internet are poisoning the younger generation's mind. Either that, they can allow internet, but only to the extent of allowing people to visit government approved sites.

Beside banning internet, they should confiscate all computers & telecommunication and burn all the books, except CNA & ST.

In addition, arrest all opp for sedition.

In this way, we will be as pure as the north korean.
