Grow and Share or Buy and Fix?

I'm touched. In the cyber world, I do not know who I'm connecting with but from the comments in my last post, I'm happy and humbled by the well wishes from my readers. It's nice to know people do care. I'm physically fine and I'm back at "get it off my chest". Apart from thanking my caring readers, I'd also like to thank all the ladies and gentlemen who have the fortitude and gumption to stand up against the PAPP. [Link] during this general election.

Having seen what they have done to their political opponents (real and perceived) like
  • Lim Chin Siong
  • Lim Hock Siew
  • Chia Thye Poh
  • Said Zahari
  • JB Jeyaratnam
  • Chee Soon Juan
  • Francis Seow
  • Tang Liang Hong
  • James Gomes
  • Vincent Cheng
  • Teo Soh Lung and many many others,
I respect all the opposition candidates for overcoming the fear and taking on the mighty arsenal of the PAPP. I respect them for putting their money and life ( look what happened to Tang Liang Hong [Link]) where their mouth is in"building a democratic society based on justice and equality so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation". Win or lose, they are changing the political scene and contributing towards a better future for my children and my children's children. Yes, for that, we should vote for them and not let them lose their $16,000 election deposit!

As much as attack is the best form of defense, I can't help but wonder if the PAPPeople are barking up the wrong tree again. Remember the James Gomez saga of '06. Now the silly question on the meaning of WP's "First World Parliament" by The Hen, The Sham and Ranee is making them stupid as stupid can. As a citizen I understand "First World Parliament" to mean a parliament where mercenary ministers cannot simply change the laws to increase GST from 5% to 7% under the guise of helping the poor. Or raise their salaries to millions at their own whims and fancies. It also means they cannot unconscionably take away the Estate Duty Act to enrich themselves and make the rich richer. If "First World Parliament" is present, Millionaire Ministers may be less arrogant and work for the people instead of lording over and insulting people, telling them it is cheaper to rot and die in JB than in Singapore!

Meanwhile the Ministers, I mean the Millionaires, are confusing us with the big "F" word again. Yes. it's the word FEAR! The PM (Prime Millionaire), SM (Senior Millionaire) and the MM (Millionaire Mentor) and the rest of the Millionaire Ministers are all at it! Yes, believe you me, if you vote in anyone other than the PAPP, you are screwed! Your HDB flat will not be worth the air it sits on, investors will pack up and go, you'll all be jobless, terrorists will have a party in Sentosa, Marina Bay and Orchard Road and Mas Selamat Kasturi will be the President of Singapore! And yes, according to another Millionaire, the latest WP manifesto of making HDB flats more affordable is nothing more than cunning plan of WP to raid the country's reserve![Link] Oh, please grow up! We have enough of this crap! It's damn tiring to listen to the same old scare tactics all the time! Oh, now they are the servants of the people! [Link]. Yes, they may behave like your maids, knocking on your doors, visit your homes, kiss your babies, shake your hands and of course, buying your votes . . . until the GE is over. Then the arrogance, the lording over, the screwing of the "daft and complacent" Singaporeans starts all over again!

With credentials that candidates like Teo Soh Lung, Hazel Poa, Tony Tan, Vincent Wejeysingha, Tan Jee Say, Ang Yong Guan, Chen Show Mao and Benjamin Pwee have, it's hard for the PAPP to look for bicycle thieves! Silly as it is, they still try their luck in questioning the integrity of their opponents. The persistent questions by Hen and even George on the "intriguing" background of Chen Show Mao shows the character of Hen and George. The fact that Chen served NS even though he was not a citizen compared to the PAP's Janil who was too busy to do NS because he was saving kids' live at KK speaks volume of the quality of each candidate.

Unlike Kate Spade Sarah PeiLin and Janil who was too busy doing NS because he was saving kids' lives in KK [Link], this group of opposition candidates have the balls, the courage to take the road less traveled. Having run out of bicycle thieves to catch, I wonder what ammunition the PAPPeople will use against them. From the bottom of my damaged heart, I pray that none of them will be preyed like Tang Liang Hong. [Link] or forced to exile themselves like Francis Seow.

I read`recently that Prime Millionaire is not at all impressed with the performance of Sylvia Lim in parliament. Well, I beg to differ and I think this may be the best speech in Parliament yet!

I feel that Sylvia speaks for me and my fellow Singaporeans. To see the faces of the Millionaire Ministers and the rest of the PAPpeople while Sylvia spoke the truth of how they ride roughshod over the taxpayers is simply PRICELESS!

We need to tame the beasts that are out of control. We need them to be responsible, to be transparent. They must be open and held accountable for money in Temasek, in GIC. They must not just take the floods as a once-in-50-year-joke. They must not nonchalantly spend $400,000 to rename Marina Bay to a new name of Marina Bay [Link]. They must be answerable to the escape of Mas Selamat. They cannot budget $104 million but spent $387 million on a sports event without answering to the taxpayers. They must stop bragging about Singapore being a prized trophy for terrorists. " A successful attack in Singapore would add a lot of credit to them (because) we are a trophy target" K Shanmugum ST 23 Apr 2011. It crazy and irresponsible keep harping on Singapore being a 'trophy target' for the terrorists. Why tempt fate? To test the capability of the Home Team? Sick!

Oh, a leopard never changes its spots! The game of buying and fixing has started again. Is it "Share and Grow" or "Buy and Fix"?

I thank all the gutsy opposition candidates for their contribution to make Singapore a better place. I'd like to give special mention to Chee Soon Juan for putting all the effort to bring democracy back to Singapore even though he cannot compete in this election, due to being fixed! I'd like to thank him for his Hokkien "yen kang". Yes, the great grandma of my granddaughter was thrilled when she saw it in the computer!

Thank heavens for internet and youtube! Dialect speaking oldies with mobility challenge can now watch rally speeches at home!

Mr Fish;
Glad You're back. This write up shows that You're keeping up nicely with all the latest developments.

And hope You could write more before Voting Day, me thinks your views and opinions are enlightening.

Welcome back. Knew you care too much to "retire". Hehehe.

Great observations as usual, putting your views in simple layman terms, on complex issues.

Hi Fish, nice to see you blogging again.

I knew you will return to join the election fray. Like me, you have to get the 'buay tah han' feeling off your chest.

Share with us your opinions as the days get nearer to polling day.

Grow and share?

The growing part I can understand. The sharing part, not so.

Yeah, they throw you bits and pieces, but these are taken back many times over. Those giveaways are just election sweeteners to buy votes and done to keep naive Singaporeans think such goodies really helps.

They do not, because LHL already said that there is no such thing as a free lunch. A telling comment. But it is the truth. You only have to realise it.

I wouldn't include Tony Tan & Hazel Pao in the group of credible candidates in the opposition, after what they did in the recent weeks.
Tyical PAP type credentials, behaviour like hongbao know the rest, and not a single criticism from the PAP? which is NOT normal, as they are quck to the draw, to mudsling "credible" candidates in the opposition, and NOT on these two? More like moles to me.
Chen SM was immediately attacked? see the difference... it will be interesting wait and see what the two moles are up to.

Just to say welcome back Fish.

You should seriously consider standing for election.

Like the other readers, i'm supremely back you're back from your hiatus!

Please continue to write, especially now. We need more critical review in layman terms.

Please stay healthy and write on!

I have a bad feeling too. Especially those ex-PAP people joining the opposition.

Sometimes I just wonder whether the opposition do a background check, or are too overcome with jubilation, having snatched an ex-PAP guy into their fold, and later turn out to be a mole.

Compare this with the PAP never (from what I know of) taking in an ex-opposition member.

Hi Fish

I know you'll be back!

Do continue to take care of your health. Medical costs are not cheap nowadays. (I've learnt to self-medicate when ill to save costs).

Great Mr Fish returned with vengence

thank you Mr Fish! for deciding to come back and swim a few more laps for your readers, nothing like
gratitude begets gratitude.

i have no doubt the PAP buggers are doing both, 'grow and share' as well as 'buy and fix'

i.e grow their own wealth and share amongst themselves, and of course, buy votes and fix the outcome.

Your voices mean more than anything for the readers and Singaporeans at large. At least, we know you are well and kicking. Let us hold our hands together and not falter by individual smearing campaign, no Singaporeans should be hurt by dirty politics. This is a secular state and a national pledge our childrens incited every day. Prove PAP it is not an aspirtion that created leeway for discriminations. It is real because opposition parties believed - Singaporean is one united people of Singapore.

they throw you bits and pieces, but they are used back again many occasions over
When you have nothing to do or unhappy? What should you do to spend the free time? How about the game? like to get Cheap World Of Warcraft Gold in WOW, and how to have theCheap Gold for WOWwith less money, is there anyway to get the for us? We need to think about this.
