Be A Man, Do The Right Thing



With the latest racial hullaballoo on smell and the subsequent apology [Link], I thought it'd be good to share the above video for all to see. According to this gentleman, it is the food that's is consumed, not the hygiene factor that caused the smell.

Regardless of race, nationality, gender, political party, culture or religion, there are the good, the bad and the ugly. Though there may be more of one kind (good, bad or ugly) in any group, there will always be a mixture in each. I'm a Singaporean of Chinese descent and I find Peter to be great a entertainer who lightens me up and makes me happy.



This just reminded me of Teo Chee Hean [Link] asking civil servants especially those expensive elites to do the right thing!

Mdm Vellama Marie Muthu of Hougang and her lawyer M Ravi has asked the court to declare if the Prime Minister has the option to decide on the by-election and when it is held [Link]. The judgement is reserved and I bet very soon our local favourite Kumar will crack a joke on it.

Meanwhile, instead of pussyfooting, PM Lee should 'do the right thing' and declare the date for the by-election in Hougang soonest possible. I just hope that the experts in the AG Chambers who are challenging Mdm Vellama will not come up with a letter like this to make more Singaporeans "buay song". The law? The logic? The self-preservation of one's position at the expense of one's honour and integrity? The right thing to do?

The Ministers' obscene salaries were raised to the millions after 2006 GE at their whims and fancy without any COI. Why the silly COI and wastage of $860,000 to pay Mercer to do Gerard Ee's job of recommending the right salaries is beyond me. If decision makers could bring the salaries up, why couldn't the same decision makers bring the salaries down. Why put on an expensive show?

I just hope the PM will 'do the right thing' this time by not outsourcing or abdicating his duty to the AG Chambers on the decision to have the by-election. Let's not waste peoples' time and money. Let's not neglect the residents of Hougang.

Yeah, be a man, "do the right thing and do the thing right" by having the By-Election soon!

Enjoy your posts!
You appear very passionate about Singapore. As for me, I have given up my arguments with them, came to Ausyland and live my sunset years. Luckily for me, my children are enjoying life here too!
Hope life's kind to you as well!

Let's hope that pussyfoot pinky doesn't sub judice the Hougang by-election until 2016 and erase Hougang from the electoral map in the way of Anson, Geylang West and Havelock! Hougang has been a torn in the PAP's hide for too long.

He of all people, who has come out of Harvard School, would have learnt from their leadership maxim - Being an effective leader is about doing the right thing, and doing things right.

Of course, in his own white world, the interpretation would becomes "In order to win this SMC back, which is the right thing to do, is to delay and build up our goodwill in the grounds, with more free porridges, free hdb subsidies etc until it is sweeter, then call for BE so that the residents of Hougang can do the right things and vote for the right party.."

That IS his definition of right thing.

Hougang is a lost cause. Just call the BE and get over it! Why get people upset and waste taxpayers money?

Fish,
it is a lost cause, asking the spineless PM to be a man and do the right thing.

i have more faith in LeeWeiLing acting like a man and doing the right thing.

on hindsight, our oldfart alias mentor should have groomed WeiLing like a son and AhLoong as the daughter....the outcome could have been alot better...LOL

I seriously doubt, LHL does a lot of thinking with so many cabinet subordinates he can 'outsource' it to.

You are spot on.
I see very little leadership in this PM but I honestly hope he has a little bit of conscience in him and do the right thing and not go the way of his father who is any moment near his end and yet is unrepentant. He is a pitiable lonely old man!
All he cared for is himself and he'll go to the grave a wretched man.

He is a lefty, so how to do the right thing?

If he does the right thing, then what will be left?

A pair of identical twins - but one obese and one scrawny. Friends are naturally curious why this is so and asked them.

Says the obese one: "I eat what is right", and the scrawny one added: "I eat what is left".

Dear Mr Fish

Here is a 4 minute movie clip which makes a very nice companion to your Les Miserables movie clip.

It is a 4 minute speech on values from the movie "The Great Dictator"

If only our Minister of Education could inspire us with such a speech when he talks about values.

It is hard to expect someone still needing so many guiding hands in office to be a man.

I think it is too much to ask, if what I have seen over the years is any guide.

This issue will drag on for sure. So be it.

As a Hougang resident, I do not understand whether his foot-dragging is an attempt to punish Hougangers, in which case more votes will go the way of the opposition in elections to come, knowing that Hougang people are not the usual 'kiasi' Singaporeans that will succumb to threats. They have long lived past that stage and the PAP should know better.

Politicians especially ministers are elected by the people to serve the country and the countrymen . They are not elected for them to become legalise robbers to pay themselves sinful salaries and ridiculous fantastic bonuses at the expense of the country and the people.They should not ransack the national coffers for their greed and their own selfish ends.

"Organic Mulch) (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, NRES-19-97). If you are working on a riding mower or a mower with an electric starter, you will also want to disconnect the battery as to prevent any accidental startups while servicing your machine. Cardboard mulch is very uncommon in Los Angeles, California and other parts of the country.

This may feel like a silly factor, however you are dealing with a full ignoramous
(me!) in these issues. Do I understand correctly that a
printer drum is an option to a toner cartridge however with
very much greater return? This does not seem to be specific in your write-up
if it holds true. Kindly shed light on.
Kind regardsJim.
