Doggone it. We're Dogs!

Doggone it! The first thought that came to mind when I saw this video was "Tiu Leh Lo Mo" which  sounds phonetically like "Delay No More" which is a Cantonese vulgarity meaning "have sex with your mother". The Hokkien equivalent would be KNNMCCB, I guess.

It is not nice to swear (even in the head) but how else does one react to such an ingrate! He uses Singaporeans' (taxpayers) money to fund his education and call Singaporeans dogs just because a Singaporean Uncle stared at him for his rude behaviour. Honest to goodness, if he had said sorry for accidentally brushing the Uncle, I'm sure the Uncle would not have stared at him. If that particular loutish behaviour isn't enough, he had to complain and brag about it in the China’s microblog “Weibo” to his compatriots! His “I will wait for him (Alex) with a knife.” [Link] takes the cake!

Then I saw this.
For a guy who is a MD in a PR and Communications company [Link], Baey Yam Keng has been pretty busy handling his personal PR with Singaporeans after saying there's something in Sun Xu's words that Singaporeans need to "reflect on". This led to an apology "to those whose feelings my words have hurt I'm sorry". Watch 1:15 of the video for the contrite apology.

This reminds me of the apology made by PM Lee in Election Year 2011 over the concerns of the over-crowdedness, transport woes and Singaporeans competing with foreigners for jobs. Crazy as it may seem, DPM Teo Chee Hean wants to attract more of them?

As reported in CNA [Link]:
"Even as Mr Teo announced new initiatives, he stressed on the need for Singapore to attract new immigrants. He described 2012 as a "demographic turning point" for Singapore.
Mr Teo said at the current birth rates and without immigration, more than 1 in 4 citizens will be aged 65 and over in 2030.
The median age of Singapore citizens will rise to 47 from 39 today
And to 53, post 2030.
Fewer working adults will also support citizens aged 65 and above.
While those entering the working-age pool will shrink.
"Without immigration, we will face a shrinking workforce and the prospect of a shrinking economy. This challenging situation is compounded by the need to support a significantly larger elderly population at the same time," said Mr Teo.
Mr Teo said the most critical long term issue is to "develop a sustainable population strategy that will maintain the vitality of Singapore, strengthen our harmonious multi-ethnic society, and enable Singaporeans to achieve their life aspirations"    Emphasis is mine.

For the benefit of those in the ivory towers who have lost touch with the ground,
  1. achieve their life aspirations? I did not aspired to be called a dog by young insolent brat from PRC! It hurts more when my government gives such brats up to $174,000 each [Link] to study here while they lock up my CPF and restrict me from using my hard earned savings! In my 60's now, I do not expect to fight for my space in a bus or MRT! I do not expect to risk my personal safety to have to shout at foreigners to get back in line when they so often jump the queue I'm in. Old as I am, I detest bullies who take advantage of decent blokes! Funny as it may seem, when you tell them nicely to queue, they'd just cock you a snook or ignore you! You have to temporarily leave your usual polite self, shout as loud as you can (preferably like a sergeant major in army) to get them to move their butts to get in line! There are many foreigners, not all, who take advantage of our kindness for weakness. They'd try their luck and push the envelope as far as they can. Unless, we stand for our rights and fight for what is ours (even the insignificant position in a queue), we and our children and their children will end up worse, much worse than dogs!
  2. Fewer working adults will also support citizens aged 65 and above? Look around you. There are so many immigrant old folks in Singapore who are brought in by 'foreign talents'. Open your eyes and ears. l find fathers, mothers of immigrant workers playing with their grandchildren in HDB neighbourhood and playground. From the way they speak and behave, you'd know they come from mainland China or India and even Phillipines. Settled immigrant workers bring along their parents and take care of their own. Are they here on holidays or are they granted special passes?
  3. support a significantly larger elderly population? I'm not rich but I do not need imported working adults to support me. I still work to eke out a simple living. Should I reach a stage that I can't help myself, my children, relatives and friends will do their part. Foreign workers to support old Singaporean fogeys like me? You kid me not?
  4. strengthen our harmonious multi-ethnic society? Yes, by calling us dogs! Jumping queues, spitting, shouting instead of talking, beating up our police officers and stop us from cooking curry!
In a globalized world, every country needs immigrant workers. I'm not against foreign talents or workers, I'm just not happy with government policies that suck up to foreigners and thumb down their own citizens. 

Charity begins at home. 

Let's sincerely start with the poor, disabled and the needy old.

//Let's sincerely start with the poor, disabled and the needy old.//

But MP Vikram Nair has already said these are the lost cause - machiam nigeria scams. just like our MCYS ads recently, who advertised these people as "hopeless, abandoned, outcast" losers of the society. Why waste more money on these home dogs? Better to adopt some stray dogs from foreign countries, and let them bite your hands in return.

Brilliant huh...keep aspiring.

So Mr Baey.
If, and it's only if.
If I were to call you a "dog",
then can I assume that you will reply that it will be something that you will will "reflect on."

You won't send me a lawyer's letter. Right?

Anyway, legally ... just in case.
For the record.
You are definitely not a dog.
And I would never call you a dog.

Dear Mr Baey
By the same logic.

If I call one of our Ministers a dog.
Will you please support me and tell the Minister to "reflect on" my comment.

Tell the Minister not to send me legal letter hor.

Watch the video, I am doubtful that Baey is sincere in his apology.

I agree that there are more dogs than humans... ever since the deluge of new immigrants.

Mr Baey, please do some soul searching and ask yourself:
1. Was it Singaporeans or foreigners who voted you into parliament?
2. Are the Singapore taxpayers or the foreigners paying your humongous MP allowance?
3. Where were you when they snatch the scholarships from us to give to the foreigners?
4. Where were you when they snatch our popular university places like a Medical course to give to foreign students?
5. Where were you when they gave places in the best schools to the foreigners?
6. Where were you when they gave the hawker stalls to the foreigners?
Please, Mr Baey, just saying sorry is not enough. You must show by action that you are against such discriminations against Singaporeans whenever they happen.

For your reflection:

Please, Mr ANON, just ASKING FOR APOLOGY is not enough. You must show by action that you are against such PRO ALIEN POLITICIANS whenever they happen.

The influx of more than 1 million foreigners into tiny 700km2 SG has severely impacted the healthcare system among other things.

New hospitals need to be built to provide more beds using tax payer money because of the influx and purchase of buses too,
with billion of dollar of tax- payer money, to cater their influx..

are among the many amenities needed to be boosted to ease the crunch face by Singaporeans in their everyday lives ,

yes using tax-payer money because the influx nos is way way above what our infrastructure and limited land areas can cope and it might not even work because we are simply too small.

All these expenditures worth billion could have been used to pay for earlier release of our CPF money among other things.

Do the work permit holders even need to pay CPF?
