Hong Kong is our role model is a curse
Seriously:
September 14, 2019 at 12:52 am (Quote)
The Govt gorged on the religion of free market principles imported lock stock and barrel from the US in the 2000s, and have spend almost as many years winding back their big theoretical error ever since.

Unfortunately, for all the so called smarts they supposedly possess, for quite a number of years they used to benchmark us against HK and seemed to think that we could go down the same path as HK. At that time it wasn’t anywhere near mainstream belief to question the HK model. But I did wonder for a long time how long that ridiculous HK model of ever rising real estate costs, the ever wonderful shrinking real estate unit sizes, stagnant salaries, etc could go on without reaching a breaking point. But somehow, those politicians and GLC top management kept singing those ridiculous tunes which suggested it was a proven path we could also take.

This is a classic case of auto pilot, and monkey see and monkey do on the part of the Govt. And it shows you how independent their thoughts and actions are. And I leave you to conclude whether they are anywhere near as clever and talented as they often claim to be.

The above comments were posted in TRE. The first sentence already showed the foolishness of the so called thinkers or planners, a lack of depth in their thinking, same as Seriously said, monkey sees, monkey do, with no value add or critical thinking. A very good and sad example is the copying of the New York stock market business model, lock, stock and barrel and leading to the demise of the stock market industry. They could not see the difference between an elephant and the smallness of a pea and thought that what were good and applicable to an elephant would also be good for a pea. And now the industry is about to turn belly up.

What about Hong Kong? Is this a good role model for Singapore? Again, from their comments and the things they used to compare Hong Kong with Singapore, what were good for Hong Kong must be good for Singapore, we are going to be in deep shit.

Blindly using Hong Kong as a reference to what we should be, what we could be would be a disaster to Singaporeans. I am not talking about the mass demonstration and rioting in the streets of Hong Kong. Hong Kong has a godfather in China that we don't have. The most ludicrous thing is to think we should have the same kind of population and population density as Hong Kong, our housing prices can go higher because Hong Kong's prices are so high, we have room to grow, our housing are cheap, very cheap compares to Hong Kong and things like that. It would only lead to smaller and more expensive HDB flats.

Using Hong Kong as a model is for the unthinking. But if so called elite, supposing to be very clever people, blindly used Hong Kong as a model, intentionally or stupidly or for whatever selfish reasons, it is unforgiveable. We will all end up having sex in small places and pretend this is a good thing while the rich and elite live in their expansive landed properties that they need to use GPS to move about in their homes.

Hong Kong is successful because China allows it to be. Without China's blessing, Hong Kong will be history. In today's news, a few traitors have gone to Washington to appeal for American intervention in Hong Kong and claiming that Hong Kong's success was due to the special trade status given by the Americans. They stupidly believe the success of Hong Kong is due to their cleverness and this special status. These kids are beyond salvation. They are suffering from the Singaporean Stupidity has no cure disease.

3 Rs - Repair, Reuse and Restraint
They design lifespans of products such as smartphones and laptop computers other electrical appliances to be artificially short, so that consumers are forced to ditch functional products and acquire new ones.

Some devices are also designed to be difficult to repair, or with replacement parts that are tightly controlled by the company, thereby making it challenging to extend their lifespan through replacing faulty parts.

Device repair services have also become few and far between such that consumers find it easier to buy a whole new device.

Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/commentary/wasteful-practices-of-affluence-repair-cutlery-plastic-bags-11880308

The above report is about wasteful habits of affluent Singaporeans. It is also about saving mother earth, about climate change and disappearing animals from this planet. It is also about the existence of humankind while we, the supreme species on earth, charted our own course of death and destruction.

Today everyone is crazy and in heat about saving a few pieces of plastic bag when each piece of plastic bag when rolled into one is not bigger than the size of a 50c coin. Yes, it is wasteful consumption of plastic and the impact is severe when they are not properly disposed off and ended up everywhere, in the ocean, in the stomach of fish and mammals and killing them. What is the solution?

Saw a documentary by some kids in CNA proposing that instead of using one plastic bag for each item of purchase, they should put all in one big plastic bag. Just throw the fish, meat, vegetable, fruits, buns and cakes, all into on bag and save 10 bags. Brilliant ideas from the kids. But the kids at the end also knew that it was a foolish idea. But it was not worse than stupid people proposing to ban giving plastic bags to hold their purchases in supermarkets and make people buy more plastic bags to store their waste and swills for disposal. The cheap plastic bag is the most efficient piece of invention of humankind. It is how it is being used and how it is being recycled or disposed that is the problem.

But the real problem is not the use of plastic bags but consumption. The article quoted above exposed the real problem behind the survival of the human species and mother earth. It is reckless and mindless consumption for the sake of economic growth. Use and throw, buy newer ones, pulling down houses and buildings to build more houses and buildings, scrapping good working vehicles after 10 years or less to buy new ones. These are very serious and expensive wasteful behaviour of human species. But no, no one is looking at them as they make economic sense. How much energy and material are wasted compare to the use of plastic bags? Such mindless behaviours are destroying mother earth! No, just turn a blind eye and go for the good thing, economic growth. Economic growth is everything. We need economic growth to get rich and appear to be richer. Nevermind about irresponsible and meaningless increase in population. Is that all there is to living?

The most serious human indiscretion and irresponsible act to destroy mother earth is increasing human population for the sake of economic growth. How much more is being consumed by one human bean alive for 80 or 90 years? How much more destruction would be due to his existence? If human beans start to think about controlling population growth, for human beans to live better quality of life, not to produce human beans for the sake of economic growth, there would be much less destruction and threats to the existence of human civilisation and the end of the world. The main threat to the destruction of mother earth is CONSUMPTION by an ever increasing growing population. By maintaining and controlling population growth, the problems of a dying mother earth, the wide spread use and disuse of plastic bags would be more manageable without have to do crazy things and stupid things to try to solve a problem that humankind has created for itself ie economic growth through increasing population and mindless consumption.

Do we need more crazy and stupid ideas to control use of plastic bags and to control climate change? Do we need 10m population? Why do we need 10m population? How many more plastic bags would be used with 10m population when the amount used by 5.6m is already unacceptable?

Another example of saying one thing and doing another is the F1 races here, extended to 2021. Speed kills and the govt is promoting Speed thrills by spending billions of dollars on the wasteful F1 races. What does it say?

Kiasu, kiasi, kia chenghu Singaporean's self defeating logic
Matilah Singapura said this:

'This is a global trend lah. Not just in Singapore. Working life is tilting towards The Gig Economy in most developed cuntries. You can blame the govt all your life, and even think that the "solution" is massive political intervention...but you would be wrong.

The business environment is so fucking competitive now. If you are a CEO---THE PERSON WHO ALLOCATES CAPITAL---your job has never been tougher, which is why, if you are successful, you will be compensated with 100's of millions, if not billions of dollars. And if you fail, you are fired IMMEDIATELY.

So if the competition is so stiff at the top, how do you think it would be for the general salaried worker who has to go thru a rigid HR process just to earn a paycheck? Plus you have ChIndians coming online competing toe-to-toe for jobs, and those folks are HIGHLY MOTIVATED.

As a total China + India make up about a third of the world's population. If you take away the borders and group together all of humanity, One in three people will be either China Chinese or India Indian. You cannot escape the REALITY of NUMBERS....

#1 Rule is: if you want to earn more, be able to create MORE value. If you cannot, someone else will, and they will eat, and you will starve.

Life is UNFAIR. People will let you down. The government will bullshit you....'


While Matilah Singapura is used to blabbing about his own theories of what is good for Singapore as a non living entity, he is happy that Singapore continues as a state even if all the Singaporeans are chased out of this island country they built and once called home.To him the existence of a non living entity is more important than the people in it.

His first point is about high competition at CEO level. Really, what kind of businesses are facing such fierce competition? Running a chicken rice chain in Singapore, a super market or a train system or a GLC or stats board? What kind of foreign or international competition is there or was there that they needed to pay millions to a sales woman to run a public transport company? There are many businesses in Singapore that are domestic in nature and do not need to be paid in the millions as if they are facing international competition or needing rocket science theories. And even need to employ a foreigner with foreign experience to be CEO. Think of the million dollar ministers, facing international competition running rocket science ministries? Or any degree or non graduate also can?

Workers needing to go through rigid HR processes for average mediocre jobs? Of the 2m jobs given to foreigners, bank managers jobs that serviced local residents and HDB dwellers need foreign talents and Singaporeans cannot do them? Look at the number of middle management jobs in MBFC and Raffles Place, need foreign talents and Singaporeans got replaced because foreign talents from little villages are better educated and can do a better job? Please lah, if that is the case, then NUS, NTU and all the local universities should close down. Some idiots even suggested sending our undergrads to do interns in India! Head full of shit.

The real reason is because India and China have more than a billion beans each. Should we replace all the Singaporeans with Indians and Chinese from these two states? We are only 3m Singaporeans and we want to replace them with 2 billions Chinese and Indians?

The more I talk about this, the clearer it becomes, stupidity has no cure. It is not just defeatist Singaporean mentality, it is worse than that, trying to explain why replacing Singaporeans with foreigners is a good thing and the govt is doing the right thing. Singaporeans better wake up and vote out any govt that sells your interest to foreigners and wanting to replace you with foreigners.

Happy is to be a (daft and unthinking) Singaporean

Below is a comment by Anonymous that is worth posting to make everyone know how stupid Singaporeans are and why they deserved to be pushed around, bullied and fucked by wildlife aka 'foreign talents'.

Many daft and silly Singaporeans have been praising the security guard for behaving like a sheep in the face of unruly and unjustified provocation and abuses by a wildlife and think behaving meek and taking all the shit are admirable. He is so lucky that he was not punched by this wildlife like another security guard had some times back. No wonder wildlife are so arrogant and aggressive towards daft sinkies. Because they know that daft sinkies would only know how to stand there looking stupid, to be abused, bullied, shouted at, even beaten up but would not dare to argue back or hit back.

Is this what daft and silly Singaporeans have become? The meek shall inherit the earth? Before they know it, the wildlife have already stolen their jobs, their pride, their dignity and their country.

Be happy as a daft and silly and meek Singaporean. Let the wildlife trample all over you in your very own country and look like a stupid fool.

After being oppressed for a life time, Singaporeans have lost the instinct to defend themselves and their rights as a human bean. In an aggressive and wild wild west world, Singaporeans would be eaten up even in Singapore by the wildlife. No wildlife will respect a timid Singaporean.

Steal their lunch, their rice bowls, daft Singaporeans would say, what to do? Steal their CPF money, they said, not my money what. Steal their jobs, they said wildlife are more talented, even knowing they are armed with fake degrees or from dubious universities.

Happy Is To Be A Singaporean

Dear Singaporeans,

Singaporean PMETs are unable to compete with foreign talents and trash because Singaporeans have:

1. Zero EQ:

- Blindly follow the laws ->> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtdRqHFQ-0A

- Singaporeans have Zero EQ that blindly follow law, e.g. security guard Steven Heng is one good example.

- I am glad that Steven Heng and his entire security team have been sacked from their jobs after being fucked by the resident Rubbish Ramesh.

- No jobs for them due to their own faults. Yes, Singaporeans have brought this upon themselves the predicament: Don't dare to fight back; just behave like a timid sheep and donkeys. So, don't blame the foreigners.

2. Zero critical thinking:

- From cradle to grave Singaporeans let all their thinking done by the PAP government and follow each and every instruction and policy set by the PAP leaders like mesmerised sheep and toads.

- Singaporeans cannot think outside the 10-year series template. Any issue that is not in the 10-year series, they cannot solve and look at one another like idiots.

- Singaporeans behave like toads in well that make lots of noises but can only think that NUS, NTU and SMU are the best in the world.

- There are other fantastic universities like Southern Pacific University and University of Hull which our highly sought after by employers in Singapore. And ICA and MOM will readily grant work visas and citizenship to such university graduates and give them high-paying and high-status jobs that Singaporeans are not smart enough to enjoy.

Yes, Singaporeans have Zero EQ and Zero critical thinking. Therefore, they need to be sacked just like that security guard, Steven Heng who readily accepted the "sincere" apology of the Rubbish Ramesh.

PAP GUARANTEE WIN GE2019 or GE2020.
Majullah PAP, Huat Ah, Huat Ah, Huat Ah!
Make More $$$$$$$$$ ......

Traitor is meaningless in Singapore
The word 'traitor' has been hurled frequently in the social media to condemn some individuals for doing wrong to country and people in Singapore. And rightly, these condemnations went nowhere, affected no one and were really meaningless in Singapore.

Singapore is a unique little piece of rock that belongs to everyone here, whether you are citizens or foreigners. Now they even have a new term called 'locals' to include foreigners who are PRs as 'locals'. What does this mean? No difference between citizens and PRs, all locals, enjoying and sharing the same rights and privileges as citizens. Who is trying to bluff who? Who is cheating who?

Singapore does not only belong to anyone here. Singapore belongs to the citizens of the whole world. Anyone can come in and work and given citizenship quite easily. One can come in as a tourist, applies for a job and get employed within weeks while daft Singaporeans could take months or years to find a job. There are now more foreigners in Singapore than citizens. In fact all those outside Singapore can claim a share of Singapore by coming here and work and be called 'locals', or simply being here. Singapore is theirs and daft Singaporeans are not complaining, getting use to it.

In many countries with some length of history, the words like motherland, home country, loyalty, pride of their citizenship, are common parlance and meant something very dear to their people. In Singapore, such terms are meaningless, just like the term 'traitor'. When there is no country, when the people are not proud of their own country or did not think or believe the country belongs to them, some even resigned to the fate that their country belongs to other people, to non citizens, what then is the meaning of a country, motherland, citizenship, loyalty, and what is wrong with giving the country away?

When giving the country away to foreigners, when inviting foreigners freely to take a share of the country, a big share of the country, do not evoke any sense of loss, any sense of guilt, then the word 'traitor' does not apply anymore. It is meaningless, irrelevant. No one cares whether one is a traitor or otherwise.

No Singaporean feels any misgiving or sense of guilt or loss of their country when the foreigners came flooding in. To these daft Singaporeans it is a natural thing, a good thing, an even better thing if the foreigners are here to take their jobs, steal their lunch, take over their country and to replace them. To the daft Singaporeans there is nothing wrong with displacing and replacing them with foreigners in their country. That is why no Singaporean would utter the world 'motherland'. The little piece of rock is not their motherland, not their country, can be given away freely.

When this is accepted as normal, then the word 'traitor' has no meaning anymore. If something belongs to you can be given away freely, no one thinking it is right to protect it, then it should be given away freely. The only time the word 'traitor' has some meaning is when one belongs to a political party and starts to go against the interest of a party. One then can be condemned as a traitor because the party has clear lines of what is theirs and what is not theirs. Being loyal to a political party can mean given million dollar jobs. Being loyal to a country means nothing, seen as kpkb by the unthinking and people with no country.

As for the general Singaporeans, nothing is theirs anymore, not this piece of rock, not the jobs and the good life. Thus, for those spouting the word 'traitor' they are spouting nonsense as the word has no meaningful meaning in this piece of rock. No one cares. Motherland, what motherland, we don't have one. This piece of rock belongs to everyone who wants it and who comes here and takes it.

When there is no ownership, there is no country and no pride to be a citizen. Singaporeans would soon be extinct or driven out of their own country by the 'traitors'. The new owners of this piece of rock are coming in by the plane loads everyday, and no one cares! No one bothers to ask if this is the right thing.

When facts are hard to believe
Calling A Spade A Spade:
December 14, 2019 at 4:25 am (Quote)

You cannot prove the GDP: If ground is very sour as we always perceived since last 3 GE,
HOW DID THE 70% COME ABOUT?
KEEP WATCH ON THE BALLOT

There is this high possibility.
So was said about the Cheng San election. No one knows.
A distinctive trait of any dictatorship is to cheat, lie and terrorize.

The above is a comment in the TRE about this unexplained or difficult to explain popularity of the PAP at the ballot box. 70% is quite assured for more than 4 decades.Going under 70% is seen as a loss to the PAP. But many on the grounds perceived that the ground is so sour, so many unhappiness. Then when election comes, 70% or more would vote for the PAP, the party that they saw as being inept, inefficient, overpaid and doing all the wrong things and harm to the country and people.

Why is this so? You have no choice but to believe the ballot papers. You have no choice but to believe that the election system is fair and transparent. You cannot claim otherwise. You cannot claim or insinuate that there is cheating, lying or terrorising as mentioned in the above comment unless you can prove it. Of course no one can prove these.

So the truth remains the truth. The facts must be real. 70% or more Singaporeans would like the PAP to rule over them forever come what may. Do not question facts and truths unless you can prove it. Being suspicious, when things just don't seem right is just an opinion, a feeling, cannot be truth till proven otherwise.

Singapore unable to guard its longkangs
We have the most powerful armed forces in the region, the most powerful air force, the most power navy, but we cannot protect our islands from being invaded and occupied by 2m foreigners. Actually we invited them, oops, not we, the govt invited them to occupy our little piece of rock, so short of land even for our Singaporeans to live comfortably and cheaply. We are running out of space and the severe consequence is that we have to pay sky high prices for our homes, even to the tune of millions for 99 year lease govt flats. And some desperadoes are insisting that we should build a nuclear plant in the island to provide for the additional power for more people. And the govt is not stopping this silliness and wanted to invite more foreigners here, to raise property prices and prices of everything.

Now, where am I? Oh, our most powerful armed forces, paid with a very huge budget to protect and defend our islands from being invaded by foreigners. See the irony? No? You are forgiven because self claimed super talents, aka unthinking idiots, also cannot see the irony.

Now the latest, no, I am not talking about protecting our private and personal data, I am talking about protecting our little longkangs. This we also failed miserably. Despite having the most powerful navy, with submarines and state of the art warships, we cannot keep our longkangs safe. OK, if you still did not get it, the longkangs are our little teeny weeny Strait of Singapore, squeezed between our islands and Indonesian island,not more than 10km wide and 50km long, that's all.

It has been reported that this year alone, before the year 2019 is out, there were 29 pirate attacks on ships in our supposedly very safe and well protected and patrolled strait. Is was our responsibility to protect them in our territorial waters. This is more than 2 cases a month. We are one of the biggest ports of call, thousands of ships have to pass through our strategic strait and we cannot keep it safe. And the pirates are not highly armed military forces but kuching kurap robbers armed with knives and parangs. And our sophisticated multi million dollars navy could not deal with them.

How are they going to defend our islands under an attack by a military force if they could not fend off attacks by little pirates? Actually this is a non issue. We do not need to protect islands from foreign invaders. We invited them in, we welcomed them to occupy our little piece of rock, to steal our jobs, to steal our lunches, to replace us and our children.

What do you think?

Are intangible ethos important or GDP numbers?
“In a troubled world, few societies can devote themselves to such intangible ideals, much less act upon them. But here in Singapore, thanks to the heroic efforts of several generations, we can all realistically aspire to live by these values, and turn our vision into reality.” Lee Hsien Loong

I am pondering over this statement by Hsien Loong in his latest new year message. He acknowledged that the effort and wisdom of several generations of Singaporeans have led us to what we are today. No doubt Singaporeans have come a long way to this state of affluence and hopefully this will continue to go the way of future Singaporeans. We are still having good times and living in prosperity, with some more prosperous and some less prosperous, and a few being left behind, fallen through the cracks. The latter is unavoidable but could be managed more carefully and could be avoided if there is a determined will to do so. We have the money and resources to do it. (I hope so).

How long would our good fortune last? With the influx of wildlife with different mentality and cultures, many inferior, being forced into our midst, would the new mix of Singaporeans be better off than before, to toughen our will to succeed? Or will the high content of wildlife dilute and weaken the social fabric of Singaporeans and our social ethos? The idiots do not think so, the main reason why they are importing so many without any worries, just to boost up the GDP to justify for the million dollar salaries and high bonuses.

It is very difficult to build to what we have today, like how many families built their fortunes over generations. But it is so easy to destroy everything in one generation or by the irresponsible appearance of a prodigal son. Would Singapore be destroyed by one generation of stupidity of its leaders? We have yet to witness how Singapore would turn out in another few decades ahead and all everyone is saying is that what this govt is doing is good. Really?

The glory of an Empire would burn its last flame, the last flicker could be the brightest, before being snuffed out forever. No empires could see the making of their last days as bad, thinking they were doing their best and everything was right, and the empire would last forever in their good hands. The British Empire in Singapore could not believe that they would be overrun by the Japanese within a few days. The Americans could not believe that they are no longer the uncontested and unchallenged Number One Empire today and are furiously and desperately clinging to their glories for a few more years before being eclipsed for good.

Are we seeing the last few good years of Singapore before the curtain falls? When there are so many wrongs being ignored and even insisted as good, the days of reckoning are near. The moment of death is usually preceded by a few moments of life as if the dying has recovered. The American Empire is in this state of health under Trump, looking like it is great again but could be in its last gasp before the end.

Whither Singapore and Singaporeans?

Indianised MNCs - How to explain this strange phenomenon?
U know Micron?:
'January 12, 2020 at 7:02 pm (Quote)
Micron PMETs is being Indianised recently with India nationals taking over PMET and management roles. Is is expansion or restructing? Someone knows? BTW, the CEO is India.
Mom should keep close eye on companies headed by India nationals for any unfair employment practice.

Imagine entire singapore is Indianised (small number really good intake is OK) , what will happen to her productivity, quality and economy as a whole?'


The above comment is taken from TRE

Indian CEOs are conquering the world, especially in western countries and the USA, taking over MNCs like they are the saviours of these companies. Many western and American companies are opening up to Indians as their CEOs. Singapore is following this trend and more and more Singapore companies including GLCs, and soon ministries and stats boards could be headed by the India Indians...if the trend becomes popular here. Fad is now a very infectious disease in the govt's thinking and policy making decision.

Are the India Indians really that good? If they are really that good, why are they not the CEOs of Indian companies? Why are there so few successful Indian MNCs? The trend of Indian CEOs taking over companies that were built by the West and Americans is coming to Singapore, and now companies that were built from scratch by Singaporeans are ripe for the taking. What this means is that the people that built these successful MNCs and Singapore companies are no longer good enough to run them. And the good enough people to run them are Indian CEOs that did not do anything in the building up of these companies but coming in to take a ride when all is set up for them to become CEOs.

The logic is that people that started and built companies are not the right people to run these successful companies. People that did not start, never started, or built successful companies are the best people to run these companies. If this logic is true, then UOB, OCBC, SIA, SPH, Sembawang, Keppel etc etc should be run by India Indian CEOs, like DBS. Or are they already planning to do so? And to stretch this thinking further, our twits should also make way for India Indians to take over the running of Singapore.

What do you think?

The future for Singaporeans is downgrading
And I must not just talking about downgrading from private homes to HDB, from bigger HDB flats to smaller HDB flats. There was a recent report in thenewpaper praising and glorifying university and polytechnic lecturers being inspired to take lower paying jobs in nursing. And we have courses to teach our graduates how to become hawkers. Soon there will be courses to teach our graduates how to become taxi drivers and security guards.

In contrast, every third world wildlife coming here is upgrading, from joblessness in their home countries to high paying full time employment in Singapore, from low paying jobs to higher paying jobs, from homelessness to homeowners. Singaporeans on the other hand are directed to take on low skill jobs, low technical jobs, while foreigners, many poorly educated, with fake papers, are taking up high tech and computer related jobs. Funny isn't it?

No, this is not funny at all. This is a very serious problem affecting many Singaporeans today and tomorrow. The Singaporeans are turning into dodo birds, obsolete, unskilled and unemployable in their own country and wildlife of dubious backgrounds and often half educated or with poor or fake education papers are taking over their lives and their country.

This is a very serious problem that cannot be ignored. It is systemic and existential. Does anyone know this? I think not, I think everyone, I mean Singaporeans, is taking this as a natural state of affair, that this is the fate of Singaporeans, despite their very expensive education and supposedly people from a first world country, losing out to third world wildlife and cannot do anything about it, and in the process would eventually lose their country as well.

What do you think?

Fake country and fake everything....only thing real is daft citizens

Anonymous said...
Fake country, with fake independence, with fake leaders, with fake laws to put fake blames, with fake degrees, fake qualifications, fake PRs, fake citizens, fake voters, and fake elections .......

Only really daft citizens can allow all those fakes to carry on faking with fake care for you.

How true? Singapore has become a country where nearly everything is fake. Fake news, fake data, fake GDP, fake crimes, fake heroes, fake savings, fake home ownership, fake charges and fees and fake subsidies, fake discounts, fake helps, fake assistance, fake arguments, fake meritocracy, fake principles, fake honesty, fake righteousness, fake immortals, fake Singaporeans....

What else is fake? Or is there anything that is real?

Think about it.
