Now it's God's fault?

S Ramesh reported in Today online: S'poreans expect everything to be perfect, but some things are 'an act of God' [Link]

HE said:

We are daft
We are complacent
We are champion grumblers
We need to have spurs stuck to our hide, and now
We expect everything to be perfect. . .

These are derogatory description of citizens of '1st World Singapore' governed by creme de la creme PAP leaders.

We were at fault when we did not "stop at 2". Now an additional 100,000 foreigners is needed this year to compete with locals for jobs and fight for space to squeeze in buses and trains. Soon, very soon, we may have to fight tooth over nail for the air that we breathe!

Congratulations! It's not our fault. I'm glad that Singaporeans are not being blamed for causing the flood. It's the act of God, he said. God may be responsible for the rain but I doubt God is responsible for the freak(ing) flood.

MM Lee said, "whatever we do when we get extraordinary rains like we had recently, no amount of engineering can prevent flooding." Pardon me, but aren't we paying the best brains for extraordinary performances? Or are we paying through our noses just to prevent our mothers, wives and daughters from being maids in other countries?

I know PAP ministers are not gods but if they act like gods and are paid like gods, they had better perform like gods instead of blaming God for heavy rain and fallen trees!

Are they so omnipotent that being honest, transparent and taking responsibility for screw-ups is considered a human weakness? Or is it their culture to come out with silly statement like "PUB has completed the investigation of the flood incident at Orchard Road. The investigation found that the flood was caused by an intense storm"? [Link] Or, as usual, wait for the leederest of the leaders to come up with some high falutin' comment to shut the case up so that everybody else can STFU and move on?

Yes, those embarrassing news keep piling up. . . showing "the power that is" may not be as powerful as the power that actually is. Is this an omen of something more sinister to come?
  1. The flood that's caused by the perfect storm [Link]
  2. The hullabaloo on the video of Martyn See on Dr Lim Hock Siew's speech [Link]
  3. The popularity of political prisoner Teo Soh Lung's book "Beyond the Blue Gate"
  4. The detention (without trial) of an NSman who's been alleged to be self-radicalised [Link]
  5. The arrest of author Alan Shadrake, author of Once a Jolly Hangman [Link]
  6. The increasing number of falling trees that kill [Link]
  7. The photographer who got handcuffed by police for taking embarrassing pictures of flood
  8. The unhappiness of a rear admiral who was trapped by the flood in Telok Kurau [Link]
  9. The effort of lawyer M Ravi taking on Law Mintster Shanmugum and the judiciary to save the life of 22-year-old Yong Vui Kong [Link]
Will all these lead to a perfect storm that may rain on our parade at Padang on National Day of August 9?

God knows.

the perfect storm is in the hands of ordinary folks, the way they cast their votes.
It would help to have the perfect storm with heaven pissing nonstop on voting day.
Call it heaven's mandate for oldfart and son, an act of God.

Somehow in some ways the SIN God is great, no matter what he did, said in the last 50 years, his words are still as lethal as usual.

Let not his words caused high blood pressure, cause vomits and heart attacks.

You die, your business my dear fellow countrymen.

The problem here is the AP/Opposition parties.

They need to get their act together.

They should challenge all GRCs and Wards. Instead of allowing walkovers due to resources/money.

Take this as the last time...give it the best shot...another 5 years of PAP rule is definitely the end of Singapore and its citizens. Look at PAP policies...ask yourself isn't this a type of leegalized genocide of us locals.

This is the last chance singapore will ever get. And its people too.

Being the real God is also difficult. Too little rain, people blame the real God for the drought. Too much rain, people also blame the real God for the floods.

On the other hand, if they want to play God and pay themselves millions above all other mortals, then they must take the blame, the same way as the real God. But don't blame the real God, because after all, the real God gets paid not a cent from us and need not answer to us for our ills.

Please don't blame the real God. Blame the other God that rules over us.

Being a former rear-admiral, I am surprised he doesn't keep an inflatable raft at home...haha

You make me laugh so hard i almost fell off my chair. is happening, the part about fight for the "air that we breathe!" THREE foreign neighbours each BBQ several times a week (normal way of cooking so their air-con rented homes remain odor-free) in their balconies which is abt 12 ft from my house. I wrote to NEA 5x and saw MP 2x (with photos). No response from NEA for past 5 wks except repeated "your report ORC-xxxx-xxxxxx is being attended to by NEA & then status changed to "Reponded/Closed" while I heard nothing from NEA. Fresh air would be nice. If not for the rain, it could be worse.

@ anonymous with BBQ neighbours.

I am delighted by your sense of humour.

To every life, a little rain must fall. It's time to rain on the parade of the arrogant pricks who think that they are God's gift to mankind - the inadequate, complacent, daft lesser mortals of Sinkapoor

For all their orgasmic self-praise of being 1st world crap worthy of king's ransom salary, isn't it a joy to see them shitting over their pants now?

Wouldn't it be lovely to see the freak(ing) floods lead to a freak(ing) election that freaks out the overpaid (it's never my fault) mini$ters?

Shiok Akan datang!

LKY said Singapore has limited space for canals and no amount of engineers can drain off water that flooded this little island. Than WTF is his son bringing in more foreigners into this LIMITED land. Can he blame the foreigners flooded Singapore is an act of GOD too. Unless he believe his son is "God" and daft Singaporeans can't be helpled.

Blame the floods on anybody and anything, Singaporeans, trees, God, Typhoon Conson and the like, but not on the PAP leaders and foreigners.

You can be sure they will come out of this debacle, still as white as ever.

I know what is overcrowding ;)
My SGean neighbour's house became houses to multiple foreign families in the same space.

Can it get worse? Yes !! There are 5 new cluster-housing totaling over 40 units over past 4 yrs.
Do i dislike foreigners? No, just loathe that stinking BBQ smell and lack of neighbourly consideration.

I am a simpleton. How come we get to eat before the foreigners arrive? I am not eating any better; just more foreign stink.
