Video on the Income Gap...



This video about the income gap was released late last year and has gone viral. It shows how bad the income gap is in the USA by taking the ratio of the wealth and income of the top and comparing it with the bottom.

If you find it shocking how bad the income gap in USA has become, you should be aware that there is only one developed country worse than the USA when you measure income gap as a ratio of the income of those on top vs those at the bottom. That country is Singapore.

"Many Singaporeans can't get permament jobs that pay decent wages to support a hdb monthy housing loans and a family."
Anon 20/4/13 17:27

Not that many. 43% have permanent jobs with decent wages and so are happy to vote PAP even in a by election.

17% may not have decent wages, but also very scared if PAP is voted out in a General Election, they may not even have wages. Because even the best opposition WP is not ready to become government.

43+17 =60% = 93% seats for PAP = strong government = don't worry Singapore has no government or not ready government.

Hi Lucky Tan

Sorry this is not part of the thread but you haven't posted a new blog post fir a month.

I'm very curious if there's censorship of your blog by the new authority thus no new post.

It doesn't matter, I just want you to know your blog is just great and I very much wish you could start blogging again. However if you don't, I also understand. It doesn't matter because now I know a lot more facts which I hope posterity will have access to. It is wrong to only permit people to read what someone thinks they should read. It is also wont to decide for the people what they shouldn't read. It becomes mind control.

Is Lucky Tan still healthy?

Is Lucky Tan still rich?

If not, one can understand why he got no mood to blog. Or even to make an announcement.

Your comments really make my day. So true and so refreshing to read.

PS - Please don't stop writing, we need to convert the 17% daft, before GE2016. Thank you Sir/Madam. God bless.

Lucky Tan has wised up and learnt to enjoy living. A professional with no problem in making tons of money, he must be a moron to do what he did in blogging to want a more equitable society in Sin. After all as a professional, he cant be facing job or financial problem. As can be gleaned from his writings, he travels widely as a globetrotter to make big bucks.
Lucky Tan should just enjoy life quietly.

He can be much more potent by walking the talk.
He does contribute much as a keyboard warrior. However, he is very much a stranger to Singaporeans. It is true to say that Singaporeans have more faith in people they see in flesh and living with them.

yes very powerful. ruining live ? what is so good if it is powerful for the wrong reason.

I still see TOC & TRE around - they are also very powerful.

Must be able to win at least 60% votes in a General Election in order to be damn powerful.

They are Our servants slaves. We are the Masters of both of them, the servants and their slaves. Now who's greater, the Masters, the servants, or the servants slaves ???

And so, dambn powderful, ehh ??? Can ruin Our live ??? Ask them, who's paying their out of the world million dollars salary ???

They won't be able to get a renewal for sure, when their contracts ends in GE2016. That's only just 3 years from now. We will sack the whole idiotic corrupted bunch in GE 2016. Their useless, hopeless corrupted and disobedient cannot be tolerated any longer. We will also charge them for treason, throw them in the dungeon and throw away the keys. And so, go and tell them, don't play play ah, but pray pray, lah.

PS .. But even if they pray and pray, we will still do it. To prove that we can do a lot more damages, ruining their live and bring down their regime. We are the Masters, remember that !!!

why need 60%. just win one or two GRCs in each election will be enough to create headache. tior bor - especially those GRCs that have tua-liats. then there will be lagi more conversation and talk about core here and core there.

Very much concerned about your silence.

Is this The Bermuda Triangle where a well-known and respected blogger vanishes without a trace?

Of course, The Blue Gate comes to mind - but, isn't there someone to tell?

Today, 27th April 2013, I'am quite certain someone is updating this blog because I know which date I posted to enquire about your silence for a month.

Then also I see later posts after my post.

What matters most is of course you're safe as well as enjoying your freedom.

The mystery continues... said...

Let me guess what may have happened to Lucky Tan:

1. He was traced and threatened by the ISD to stop blogging, or else...

2. He was bought over with an amount that is hard to resist. As they say: everything and everyone could be bought for the right price.

3. He was indeed Feed Me to the Fish...

4. He is trying to test his popularity.

5. He is too happy or too upset to write for now.

I hope the answer is 4 or 5. All the best to you.

You bunch of shithead and dickhead, pissed and shitted everywhere in the internet world. And it's so stinko !!!

Stop your shit personality you dickshithead bloke !!!

Anonymous said...

Very simple.

He saw no point blogging anymore.

And so he joined not PAP but the "What's the point?" party.(WP)

WP will defeat PAP in 2016. That's the point.

Oh yeah, try Dr CSJ.

PS ... If you can buy him, I'll cut my that one, one more time. I promise.

Anonymous said...

Dr CSJ every time lost.

Lost election, lost money, and even lost freedom (for a short period)

What else lost?

If I were PAP, why would I want to buy? Give it free I also don't want.


Anonymous said...

Truth be told, actually I have respect for Dr CSJ courage and determination. But only until the Punggol BE, that is.

That's when my respect came "crashing down."

Anonymous said...

@ Anonymous 29/4/13 11:16 :

That's typical sour grapes. The facts is, he can never be bought. Admit it ???

@ Anonymous 29/4/13 11:21 :

What about the Punggol BE ??? So did he contested, finally ??? So If he didn't, then what's the problem ???

PS ... PAP are very afraid, very very afraid of Dr CSJ. Causes them sleepless nights. Their worst nightmares. Just by mentioning his name, two idiotic "PAP IB" buah tahan already, hahaha ....lol !!!

Courage and determination no use if not smart. Or never use brain properly.

In Chinese the phrase is

有勇无谋







Anonymous said...

If you're not smart, can you have courage and determination ??? Without the former, you cannot have the latter.

Just like a stupid idiotic bloke like you, where got courage and determination. it's commonsense, man.

In Malay, the phrase is :

Sudah lah bodoh, sombong pula.

Hi Lucky

We understand you can't blog as before anymore. Just want to let you know that you've done great national service in opening minds and enlightening us on complex issues in an interesting and easy to understand way. Thank you. Keep well and all the best to you.

Anonymous said...

Whether Lucky Tan or anybody else blog or don't blog, I think PAP will still remain as the best available party to vote for as government by majority 60% voters.

And WP will remain the best available opposition able to win some but not enough seats at elections so not able or ready to be government.

Nothing of this will change even until 2016 and beyond.

Anonymous said...

Internet and blogs can change governments in other countries but not in Singapore.

Why?

Because in order to change, best alternative must be ready. If not ready, it is stupid to change because it will be changed from from bad to worse.

60% being not stupid, will not allow this and regardless of what even bloggers like Lucky Tan says.

Anonymous said...

Question.

Why is WP the only opposition party able to win seats at elections?

Why the others cannot?

Singaporeans focus on solutions and are highly pragmatic. They know they need money and they seek solutions to acquire it.. hopefully in large quantities.
