Them's Fightin' Words

strabismus  [strah-biz´mus]
n a condition wherein the two visual axes of the eyes are not aimed at a single object. In paralytic strabismus the muscles in the eyes are unable to move because of infection, tumor, or injury. In nonparalytic strabismus, there is a defect in the location of the eyes in relationship to their focal point. Also called "squint",  "crossed eye", "google eye", "boss eye", "yinty eye", "cock eye", "bodger's peeper", "wonk eye", and "wok eye".

With normal vision, both eyes transmit the same messsage to the brain. This binocular fixation is necessary to see three-dimensionally and to aid in depth perception. When an eye is misaligned, the brain receives two different images. Young children learn to ignore distorted messages from a misaligned eye, but adults with strabismus often develop double vision (diplopia). But what do you call an adult if his eyes see the same information but sends a different message to the brain?

In her version of the oft quoted advice from the people in power, "My way or the highway", a certain pink blogger has paraphrased it thus: "But we must progress WITH Singapore ... Or get out."

Frankly, there must be many who wish they have the option of doing just that, what with the current state of misgovernance that is on track to turn our women folk into domestic help.
"You know, the cure for all this talk is really a good dose of incompetent government. You get that alternative and you'll never put Singapore together again: Humpty Dumpty cannot be put together again... my asset values will disappear, my apartments will be worth a fraction of what they were, my ministers' jobs will be in peril, their security will be at risk and their women will become maids in other people's countries, foreign workers. I cannot have that! " - LKY, Straits Times, 5 April 2007

A friend lamented that he should have stayed on in Australia after completing his tertiary education there, instead of being the filial son and coming home to be around with his aging parents. Having planted his roots, like all NSmen trained to handle firearms, he is not about to leave without a fight. Especially when the enemy is from within.


  1. Every true blue Singaporean is a stakeholder and if pink blogger has issue with the others, she should step forward and buy them out. Just take a look at Heineken and pink blogger can go figure it out. If she does not have what it takes to fund that, just shut up. Ready? Please make that offer and name a price.

  2. "But we must progress WITH Singapore ... Or get out."

    Who is this "Singapore" she is referring to?
    Assuming "Singapore" refers to Singaporeans i.e. people;

    Then it seems that a group of Singaporeans favoured by this pink blogger is progressing or moving in the correct direction as defined by this pink blogger.
    While the rest of Singaporeans are not moving as fast.

    The pink blogger must be challenged to identify who is this 'Singapore" that she is referring to. Names and i/c numbers preferably included.

    It's the same when it comes to the phrase "greater good". Who is this "greater good"?

    1. Be very careful of people who make claims in the name of patriotism and "greater good".

      Everything Hitler did;
      He did because he believed in Germany;
      And the "greater good";

      Here is a 3 minute video (with English translation) of Hitler's speech when he first became Chancellor.
      Observe the patriotic fervour of his speech.
      The great desire for German progress.

    2. Sorry.
      Here is the 3 minute video link.

  3. It is everyone's wish to be wealthy, healthy and wise.

    If you can, you will try your best to have them in equal portions. However, not everyone has the same idea.
    Some like wealth more. Some want wisdom more, Some want health more.

    I am quiet certain more than 90% of people here in Singapore prefer wealth ( despite the recent report on it being the healthiest)
    And with that, the govmin has proceeded to acquire wealth. Inequality aside, wealth to people can have very different degrees.

    If not at least able to display wealth, regardless if its genuine. Face, image, ego is everything here.

    because, 90% wants wealth, the 10% is a minority and they are the ones who search for wisdom.
    The bad news is that statistics is against them.

    There is no wisdom in buying a car, yet people do
    There is no wisdom in buying property now, yet they do
    There is no wisdom in going to Casinos, yet they do
    There is no wisdom in being childless, yet they do

    There is no wisdom in voting for the PAP, yet they do.

    1. Q. Why are MIWs just like laxatives?
      A. Because they can irritate the shit out of you.

  4. As they said, there is is sucker born every minute.

    I have a bone to pick with that report that rank Singapore #1 for "Health".

    Just wonder, if they are aware of our young men dropping like flies once in a while doing a simple run.
    Ho! I forgot that the numbers are not significantly big enough.

    Like our authorities, until a massive breakdown /outage occurs, all is quiet on the Western front.....

    1. Yup! it must affect them directly before anything action is even considered.

      But they will never ever be affected because they:

      a) do not commute in trains & buses or even taxis

      b) their kids all get into schools without balloting

      c) they never ever have to register for a HDB flat

      d) COE prices have zero effect on their wallets

      e) Medical bills are never seen

      f) their retirement funds is guarenteed

      g) being unemployed is no big deal

      h) Flood? what flood?

      i) Foreigners? where?

      j) CPF rules can change a zillion times, they are unaffected

      k) Interest rates can move up or down, no sweat

      But we got their attention when they lost a GRC and a big gun George.

  5. "Especially when the enemy is from within"

    I don't need 6/6 vision to see and confirm the above statement is true...the pink blogger is just one of the many foot soldiers serving MIW.

    I don't mind getting out If I can take as many of the MIW along with me...LOL
    Looks like this island is not just damned crowded but also not big enough to be shared by the 60% and 40%
    It will be an epic if differences can be settled until last man standing.

  6. Indeed. "THEY" must progress with Singapore, or GET OUT of the citizens' ways. The citizens all over the world select and decide which government they keep or kick out. Unless you are coming from a dynastic country ruling its fiefdom with its own kins rather than real talents; in autocracy rather than the guise of democracy. Remember, NEVER the other way round!

  7. Poor pink blogger. She must have been kicked out of her own family home, thus looking for father/paternalistic attention who knows how to press her right buttons. After all, how many of young people out there will listen to girl whose definition of beauty involves an incessant supply of beauty cosmetics, surgeries, fake lashes, color blond hairs etc..seriously? Clearly, like the nation state of Singapore, she is as insecured about its fading beauty like the leaders of the nation who can't help building more shining complexes, skyscrapers, casinos, bridges, fake garden by the bay yada yada. All the hardwares, none of the softwares. Match made in heaven with a particular plastic surgeon who will cheat and lie many times over until caught. Apparently, she is the mascot and shining example of the esteemed press.

  8. Q: Why do only 10 percent of MIWs make it to heaven?
    A: Because if they all went, it would be called hell.

    Q: Why can't MIWs get mad cow disease?
    A: Because they are pigs.

    Q: Why do MIWs whistle when they're sitting on the toilet?
    A: Because it helps them remember which end they need to wipe.

    Q: What's the difference between a UFO and an intelligent MIW?
    A: UFOs have been sighted several times.

    1. Q: Why do MIW choose to tell lies?
      A: Because the truth hurts.

      Q: Why is MIW not welcomed by those in hell ?
      A: MIW will engineer problems for them.

    2. MIWs are like...Bank Accounts.
      Without a lot of money, they don't generate much interest.

      MIWs are like...Horoscopes.
      They always tell you what to do and are usually wrong.

      Men are like...Laxatives.
      They irritate the shit out of you.

      How do MIWs show he's planning for the future?
      He has a pension and a salary.

      What's the difference between a new MIW and a new dog?
      After a year, the dog is still excited to see you.

  9. If we still have the money in GIC and Temasek,I will support pink blogger's proposal that those not happy with PAP should get out on the condition that these citizens be given some incentives to do so.

    1. How about we give monetary incentives for the pink blogger and Pro Alien Party to get out.

  10. "How about we give monetary incentives for the pink blogger and Pro Alien Party to get out."

    We already give them extraordinary incentive that can only be imagined by other countries. Ask yourself where else can you find a country where more than $70 billions highlighted by Chris Baldings go unaccounted for by the govt, and govt resort to creative accounting (please don't give the nonsense that GIC/TH is a private company and does not need to account to the public), and yet the MIWs and their elites can enjoy millions and god-who-know other perks and benefits ? If these loss has occurred in china, those involved probably will be shot by the state for corruption and enormous coverup.
