Time to celebrate or hang my head in shame?

Congratulations to the 3 immigrants for winning the silver medals. With their hard work and the funds & desperation of leaders (S'pore Govt, S'pore Sports & STTA) to boost their egos, the imported immigrants have achieved much. They deserve to be proud of their medals and enjoy the rewards that is coming top them!

But to the leaders who brought this about, shame on you! This is not the way to try to anchor a nation into unity. With what you have, I'm sad to note that you have not realised that to unite the people, all you need to do is:

1. Be sincere
2. Be honest
3. Be humble
4. Be gracious
5. Be forgiving
6. Be in touch
7. Lead by example
8. Help the down and out
9. Don't buy people
10. Don't fix people
And, last but not least, be Singaporean!

I totally agree with Anthony Yeo who wrote, "I'm not celebrating . . " in TOC, but I do not think he should hang his head in shame.

The people who should be ashamed of themselves are those responsible for this sham and shame. While their orgasm hasn't stop, I'd like them to know that it's a pyrrhic victory. It may bring more harm than good!

Money can keep reluctant ministers in their jobs; money can buy medals; money can fix opposition and buy votes; money can even buy sex; but sorry chums, money cannot buy me love, nor peace, nor truth, nor loyalty nor national pride. Money also doesn't buy fear of arrogant leaders!

I pity those who still insist that since other countries are doing the same, we should follow. As we are really into this slippery slope of casinos and prostitution, I guess it doesn't hurt to be orgasmic about a pyrrhic victory! What next? Instead of imported yellow table tennis players, we may have black athletes representing Singapore in London Olympics in 2012. Last I heard, Singapore scouts are heading to Jamaica to buy some.

Me? I'm simply celebrating life (born again after my heart attack), love and lately grandfatherhood!

Before I'm accused of being a racist, I'd like to state that I'm yellow too :)

How do the Chinese leaders unite their people? How did they manage to get 1.5 million volunteers for the olympics? Look at the Chinese prime minister. He was right smack in the middle of the Szechuan earthquake area, directing the rescue operations and telling the people that he and his government are the servant of the people. Not only were their own people moved, the whole world applaud his actions.

Here in Singapore? They tell Singaporeans you need to pay us more to get good results. And they treat foreigners better than Singaporeans. How can we unite the nation in the face of all this?
