No Hair but Got Heart?



As with any organisations, there are nice blokes and there are arrogant pricks. Yes, government leaders who, when opening their mouths, prick you no end with their insolent 'see-you-no-up-but-talk-you-down-like-you-are-an-idiot' remarks. 

So are there honestly sincere, good and humble leaders in PAP? I bet there are. If not, we are doomed! Among the ministers, I perceive Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam to be one. I hope he stays one.

In his recent 2012 Budget Speech, he mentioned of "A Fair and Inclusive Society" where, "For older Singaporeans, including those in the middle-income group, we will introduce a comprehensive set of measures to help you work, to build up your savings, and to stay healthy and have a greater sense of security in retirement.

For Singaporeans with disabilities, we will do more to help you maximise your potential at each stage of life – in early childhood, in school, and as adults, to work and to be cared for.

For lower-income Singaporeans, we will do more to support your children’s education, and help you acquire skills as adults, hold good jobs and improve your incomes over time. We will also introduce a new and permanent feature in our tax system: GST Vouchers, which will provide continuing assurance of a fair system of taxes and benefits." [Link]

I take the Finance and Deputy Prime Minister at his words and I sincerely hope his colleagues responsible at other ministries will live up to his pledge, work at it and not treat it as another 'aspiration' [Link]. Hopefully not another NATO! (No Action Talk Only)

It is good to know that Tharman is aware that there are the old, poor and disabled in Singapore. Unlike some wise men who deny their existence by saying "You go down New York, Broadway. You will see the beggars, people of the streets...Where are the beggars in Singapore? Show me." or "There are no homeless, destitute or starving people [in Singapore]… Poverty has been eradicated." [Link],  To be poor, old and disabled is 'no fun' [Link] but to be insulted or even worse, denied one's deprived existence by the hoity toity of the rich, famous and powerful is disgraceful!.

I believe that like a chain, a country is only as strong, as happy or as prosperous as its weakest link. Self-praise by Singaporeans (especially PAP leaders and cronies) of being a first world country doesn't mean squat if the disadvantaged are not cared for or helped with subsistence and kindness. Though the details of the assistance have yet to hit me, I'm happy that the heart of Tharman shines like his pate!

It is disappointing that some ministers whom I respected and thought were good and sincere have through time proven to be trash. (Some have deservedly ended up in the dustbin while others are still thrashing around without any sense of shame). I'm not much of a PAP fan, but I believe fair is fair and I write with heart. Where Tharman is concerned, he's got not much hair, but he's got heart!

Sir, just don't ever break my heart by making silly comments that 'Khaw Peh Khaw Bu'!
Btw, the great-grandma of my grand daughter smokes 'ang hoon' and she isn't too pleased with your 'ang hoon' tax ;)

feedmetothefish

'Khaw Peh Khaw Bu' = Cry Father Cry Mother (make unnecessary noise, complain, throw tantrum?)
'ang hoon' = red tobacco leaves (a cheaper form of smoking where one rolls one's own)

Mr Fish, I love reading your blog, in fact, I can't wait for your new post, and I do agree with you on this, DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam certainly comes across as someone with heart but in this case, that is as far as I would go, why? Check out what this blogger has to say about his latest budget... http://singaporemind.blogspot.com

Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

Isn't this Mr "Teach Less, Learn More" when he was Education Minister?
Which sounds a lot like "Do Less, Earn More".

Mr Finance Minister.
Regarding my CPF money.
O$P$.
Give me back my CPF money.

Datuk Fish,
You are a joker! You never fail to make me laugh! Kekeke! I like those comments about our Ah Nei DPM.
"I’m happy that the heart of Tharman shines like his pate!"
and
"Where Tharman is concerned, he’s got not much hair, but he’s got heart!"
Lol! Just can't wait for your next post! Pls keep it cummming!

Feed me to the fish,

based on his track record of talking down and insulting's Singaporeans' intelligence (Anyone forget about his remark on TH/GIC transparency and accountabiliy ?), it is still very early to tell. You can never tell that the hair grow on his heart instead of on his head since the MIW always claim to be extraordinary .

"Hair grows on his heart?" Nvr heard of that before. I only heard of hair grows under armpit, underneath the balls or around the arsehole! Mmmm I would like to know how to grow hair on the heart! Lol!

Well Done Workers' Party.

Your presence in parliament has delivered us this more "inclusive" budget.

Bravo to brave voters of Aljunied GRC and Hougang.

Let's continue voting in more Opposition MPs.
For a more transparent, accountable and caring government.

Yes!! Me agrees with the Anon before me that the bigger win by Alternative Parties has brought back some conscience to the people who ruled Sin. And if not conscience, it MUST Be fear of losing more in future elections that make them throw a bit more crumbs.

Another reason is that the evergreen bloggers have kept up their onslaughts. The Rulers know they are under 24/7 monitoring.

The above-mentioned reasons had resulted in a slightly better budget for the LESSER SINGAPOREANS. Nevertheless, DPM Shanmugaratnam seems to be the only one well-liked by the people after George Yeo 'quitted'.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear
and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I
know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great graphics or
video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could certainly be one
of the most beneficial in its field. Superb blog!
