Same Old, Same Old

The Elections Department (ELD) is tweaking the rules again, raising maximum spending limit from $3.50 to $4.00 per voter, tilting the "level playing" field to political parties with deeper pockets. Other changes include new ballot papers featuring candidates' mugshots "to help the elderly identify the candidates". Since we only get to see these guys face to face once in fifty five years, we won't know the purity of their hearts from a brief encounter. What they should include is an accompanying short quote reflective of their true colours:


"If you’re lazy and work less, you’ll have less Medisave" - Khaw Boon Wan
"Without foreign workers, Singapore is likely to become a ‘garbage city’. Cleanliness is a character thing. It shows who you really are." - Goh Chok Tong on Tokyo has no rubbish even though the Japanese capital has no rubbish bins in public places

"A manpower policy that advocates hiring "Singaporeans first" will not benefit the economy in the long term" - Senior Minister of State for Manpower Amy Khor
"We (also) need to reflect, are we the way they described?" - Bay Yam Keng on Sun Xu's "more dogs than humans in Singapore"
"However, it may not be wise to call for the tradeoffs to be tilted further to an extent that it dissuades good people from coming forward in future” - Grace Fu on ministerial pay cut
"Some cardboard collectors treat it (collection of cardboards) as a form of exercise and activity rather than being cooped up at home" - Tan Chuan Jin
"Well, everybody has a car, we have two — my wife drives one, I drive one. We are both professionals, we need to travel" - Koh Poh Koon on car ownership
"...I regret making the decision because, in the end, the baby continued to be in intensive care, and KKH now runs up a total bill of more than $300,000..."- Lim Hng Kiang on regretting the decision to save a baby's life.
"If we spent 387 million dollars, will we get value from that expenditure? In my mind, the answer... is yes." - Vivian Balakrishnan on YOG budget blowout
"Whether a participant perished or survived depended on where he or she happened to be at the time." Heng Swee Kiat on why 12 year olds died on Mt Kinabalu

  7. Besides a "mugshot" of the candidates, for those voters who are blind ( and cannot see the pics ), they should improvise a button for the blind voters to press and hear a short podcast or voice recording of the candidates.

  10. What about that PAP MP who told us a S$500,000 annual salary Minister is not going to have enough dignity to speak to corporate heads ?

    So the differential make up to current salary was to shore up the dignity of our PAP Minsters including that of LKY'son ? Nothing really to do with basic HONESTY which should not cost a cent more ?

    Since they like to talk about LKY so much, so was LKY wrong with such arguments like "If my son is not paid enough, he will be tempted to be dishonest or corrupt?"

  15. "Repression, Sir is a habit that grows. I am told it is like making love-it is always easier the second time! The first time there may be pangs of conscience, a sense of guilt. But once embarked on this course with constant repetition you get more and more brazen in the attack. All you have to do is to dissolve organizations and societies and banish and detain the key political workers in these societies. Then miraculously everything is tranquil on the surface. Then an intimidated press and the government-controlled radio together can regularly sing your praises, and slowly and steadily the people are made to forget the evil things that have already been done, or if these things are referred to again they're conveniently distorted and distorted with impunity, because there will be no opposition to contradict."

    How about this Pinky who support a joker that CPF may not be your money, apparently he already treat our CPF as his money. He will just support anyone excellently that support his retarded and corrupted view.
    Best of all, force us to put money into CPF, then tell us because he giving us interest, it might not by your money after all. What kind of fuck#@ing retarded logic is that ? Only a retarded can think of such thing and believe singaporeans are daft.

    Retarded Pinky said.
    "The Budget debate began yesterday. NMP Chia Yong Yong made an excellent speech about the CPF. I was not in the chamber to hear her, but watched it later on YouTube.

    Yong Yong cast the question in a broader perspective: whether it is right to think of the CPF as “our money”, to be spent solely as we choose. She explained how choice always comes with responsibility, and benefits always carry obligations. When we exercise personal choice (e.g. by spending our CPF savings early), there is a price to be paid (e.g. we may not have enough to support ourselves in old age), and that price should not be paid by someone else (e.g. other taxpayers).

    Yong Yong had asked me earlier whether we had settled the CPF policy, and if so was it worth her while to speak. I said we had worked out the main changes, but strongly encouraged her to express her view and contribute to the public debate. I am glad that she did, and to such good effect."

  24. "One of the crucial yardsticks by which we shall have to judge the results of the new abortion law combined with the voluntary sterilisation law will be whether it tends to raise or lower the total quality of our population. We must encourage those who earn less than $200 per month and cannot afford to nurture and educate many children never to have more than two. Intelligent application of these laws can help reduce the distortion that has already set in. Until the less educated themselves are convinced and realise that they should concentrate their limited resources on one or two to give their children the maximum chance to climb up the educational ladder, their children will always be at the bottom of the economic scale. It is unlikely that the results will be discernible before five years. Nor will the effect be felt before fifteen to twenty years. But we will regret the time lost if we do not now take the first tentative steps towards correcting a trend which can leave our society with a large number of the physically, intellectually and culturally anaemic."
