Why DoThe Crazies Love To Hurt PAP MPs?

I was shocked to read this in CNA. "Rag-and-bone man charged with threatening MP Denise Phua".

After one came with thinner and lighter to torch MP Seng Han Tong on 11 January 2009 forcing Mr Seng to celebrate his Chinese New Year in SGH, we now have another ex-patient of Institute Of Mental Health wanting to hurt another PAP MP.

What has PAP done to ex-patients of IMH that they wish so much to hurt PAP Members of Parliament. What's wrong here? The ex-patients of IMH or the MPs of PAP? Is this another case of missing Ang Pow or are the ex-patients angry over something else?

Has it anything to do with MM Lee's sharing of his doctors's opinion that Chee Soon Juan was a "near psychopath"? Could it be that the two ex-patients were not happy that PAP leader branded them in the same category as Chee Soon Juan!" Could the mentally health challenged feel that way?

Just what makes a person want to hurt another? Is it plain madness as reported in the msm or is it something else?

As the doom and gloom gets worse in 2009, acts like thefts, robberies and worse crimes will be more prevalent. But hurting MPs? Does survival instincts take over rational goodness of being and caring when one is hard done by? Worse still, will more poor and frustrated Singaporeans be high-flyers doing HDB jumps or feeding themselves to moving MRT trains? Does the sense of hopelessness makes a decent person do things that he would not normally do?

As much as I hate to use the "R" word "RESILIENCE" (used ad nauseam since the Budget 2009 Speech), I sincerely hope that Singaporeans especially the poor, the down-and-out, the jobless, the retrenched and those who feel cheated will be "resilient" enough not to "upturn the downturn" and "reskill and upskill" their level of madness and violence to solve a problem, to seek justice.

As much as I think PAP Mintsters and MPs are overpaid for their performance, I'm totally against violence done and threatened upon them. Nobody deserves the pain and suffering that Seng Han Tong went through.

Having said that, I hope that the Mintsters and MPs will do right by being more pro-people and less pro-greed! As rich as they are, they have lost much!

They have lost touch!

I do hope that MPs who feel that policies that do not work do not get implemented and get killed in parliament. Is parliamentary hearings just a rubber stamp for a bad policy? Reading today's nespapers, many, including Denise, feels it is a blunt instrument, and more KPI need to be set up to ensure the money is well used.

But apparently the cabinet ministers are going to let this Job Credit pass without any KPIs from the companies.

For a start,
1) let companies who need help APPLY for job credit.

2) For those who apply, give some KPIs to meet, eg for SMRT
- that they will not announce high profits for the year end.
- that salaries of top management will be capped at $500,000
- that shareholders' will not get extraordinary dividends.
- that excess profits will be returned in the form of tax.

Anything that promises that this Job credit is not a side scheme to line the pockets of successful GLC CEOs.

(Why SMRT? I keep seeing her face in newspapers ad - Pulses)

I also hope that someone will talk about the high salaries of cabinet ministers in view of having to drawdown on past reserves. It cannot be so.

It is absolutely wrong to cause physical hurt to another person except for obvious reasons like protecting oneself and family etc.

The compelling question we should ask is "why so little outpouring of empathy for the unfortunate MP"
in cyberspace.

Time for those in the ruling party
to understand that empathy cut both ways.

System of governance and policies that cause endless frustration can suppress or dampen empathy in ordinary people.

Empathy begets empathy.

"Nobody deserves the pain and suffering that Seng Han Tong went through."

True, true, but then again, nobody deserves the tax payers money he is getting for doing absolutely nothing for the citizens in return.

Those who cheered simply because he is viewed as an enemy combatant, nothing to do with lack of compassion. To answer why this is so, PAP will have to do some serious self-examination of their own conducts and arrogance towards the people whose money they are using to pay themselves.

Good day fish.
