More than amazed, I'm amused by what I read in "Don't rock S'pore's foundations: MM [Link
Dear Millionaire Mentor,
As in every GE, you do your best to scare the shit out of us to vote for PAP. Since 1959, we have seen the reprehensible tactics you used to ensure that you and PAP come out tops. As expected the disciples you have are using the same tricks.
- Lim Biow Chuan [Link] for creative advertising.
- Vivian Balakrishnan [Link] & [Link] for insinuating his political opponent is a paedophile.
- Ng Eng Hen trying your old trick of Freak Election Results [Link].
- K Shanmugum and Indranee making a song and dance of Workers' Party's 1st World Parliament. [Link]
We are not rocking the boat or the foundation. Being in your ivory tower for so long, nobody can blame you for not being aware that we are not in the same boat. You may be one of us from the 60's till the 80's but not today. Definitely not since 2006. We have not been in the same boat since you approved and defended the obscene pay rise of your ministers! There is no boat to rock! In fact, you and yours (in your own luxury liners, yachts and speedboats) are creating waves that rocks the rickety sampans of the average Singaporeans. It's such a shame that the 2006 PAP manifesto of 'Staying Together Moving Ahead'. is nothing but a joke! The only ones moving ahead in Singapore are you and yours. The poor and the marginalized are left to fend for themselves or helped by the VWO. MCYS headed by your 'paedophile catcher' did not bat an eyelid when he overshot the YOG budget by about $300 million . Neither did he have a tinge of sympathy for the have-nots when he insulted Dr Lily Neo and the poor when he finally agreed to raise the measly monthly public assistance by $30 per month.
It is a shame that your cronies and testicles carriers are too afraid to tell you the hard truths. That scare tactics like 'freak election' results and 'if you don't vote for PAP, your mother, your wife and daughters will end up as maids in foreign countries" don't work no more!
Please stop telling us that without you or PAP, Singapore would not be what it is today. Your silly arrogance has been a pain to many but Singaporeans especially your balls carriers are just to polite to tell you, "Dude, has it crossed your mind that without you or your PAP, Singapore could have been a better, healthier, happier place to live in?" Without your impatience while we were part of Malaysia, we may have become better and more harmonious than what we are today. Think about it.
Your ivory tower mentality has caused much suffering to the average Joe, Ali, Krishnan and Ah Beng. The lack of breathing space everywhere especially in trains, buses and on the roads! The young aren't able to afford a roof over their heads. The old have to sell or downgrade their flat so that they can afford to retire. (Yes, that's the advice from you Millionaire of National Development!) When they are sick, they are advised to rot and die in JB! CPF has become a mirage. This is the Singapore that you are so proud of!
You have forgotten that the position you are in today is due to the peaceful, hardworking, self-respecting nature of Singaporeans who worked and co-operated with you. So please don't tell me that that Singapore is a safe place to live because of PAP and you. Singapore is a safe place to be because of its people. Not you or PAP. Don't be so full of yourself!
You are lucky that you do not have to work to win your Tanjong Pagar seat today. (Due to the late submission of the opposition party?) If not, at your age, the campaigning may just cause you more frailty. Call me sour grapes, but if I were the Prime Millionaire, I would not have let my frail and cranky dad continue to hurt himself and my country. With the authority vested in me as Prime Millionaire, I would have graciously retire you and let you enjoy the sunset instead of letting you accidentally throw spanners at my work as PM like saying something stupid: "Malays in Singapore do not know how to integrate"!
By the way, we Singaporeans are hardworking, peaceful, loving and law abiding citizens. But we are not your punching bag. When push comes to shove, we'd fight back! So, stop your hubristic and ungrateful habit of denigrating us! We are neither "daft" nor "complacent" as you so often like belittle us. Please save such adjectives for your Millionare of Home Affairs who lost Mas Selamat and other deadwoods who work for you. We are not as stupid or malleable as you want us to be and the only spurs needed to pricked on anybody's back are those of your self-serving servants who lord over us!
As much as you may have done some good for Singapore so have many, who unlike you, did it without fanfare and self serving memoirs!
You will die. I will die. Ultimately we all die.
At any age, there's still time for redemption.
A little humility may help.
