Shocked And Dafted, Will Joan End Up Like Wei Ling?

Does it hurt a very old man to be haunted by arrogant and heartless decisions he made decades ago? We were told to take our time to say "Yes" to marriage. We were taught to fook with Birth Control Pills, Coitus Interruptus, Condoms, Rhythm Method, etc. We were threatened that we were too poor and too daft to procreate. Lest we get dafter children! Our genes just couldn't make it! Singaporeans were even encouraged to get sterilised like dogs and cats to enjoy financial incentives! Whose fookin' idea was it? Now he wants more babies??? I can't find a better word but to borrow from Jack Lord's Steve MacGarrett of Hawaii-Five-O's famous two words . . . "Fook him!"

Or was it "Book him"?

In the same way that Goh Chok Tong sucker-punched himself by calling his daughter a "quitter" for not residing in Singapore, is Lee Kuan Yew now shooting his own foot by advising Joan Sim not to end up childless like his daughter, Wei Ling?

In a forum at NTU [Link], Joan Sim, 27, asked Ex-MM Lee a question about social cohesiveness. Instead of answering the question, he urged the doctoral student, who is single, to get married and have children soon. Why he had to embarrass the young lady with personal questions like age and relationship status is beyond me. Why can't he just give a straight answer and respect the wish of ladies like his own daughter who wish to remain single and childless? Unless I'm missing some, what has social cohesiveness got to do with sex and babies? Or does 'social cohesion' in new-fangled English mean sex in the fooking sense?

In the same forum, "Pressed by undergraduate Muhammad Farouq Osman, who cited a Straits Times report on how Singapore has a "Third World wage structure, Mr Lee dismissed the report with a laugh, saying: "It is easy for an editor of the Straits times to write that. But if he is in charged of the economic policies and he has to consider the long-term consequences of changing the policy, he will have to think very carefully through it."

He then asked Mr Farouq what he thought should be done for the lower and middle-income groups. When silence ensued, Mr Lee said patiently: "Think over it carefully, then you ask me the question the next time we meet."

Wouldn't it be orgasmic if Farouq answered, "Hey, you the man! You are the expert here fielding the questions. I don't get the obscene millions every year like you do, the bodyguards and the 5 secretaries and office help you get for free! You asking me?" Yes, it would be priceless if Farouq had retorted . . . like what Reuter's Melanie Lee did! [Link]

Why are NTU students so easily bullied by ex-MM who is past his best-by-date. I don't understand why they asked questions of an old man and ended up being made fools of without doing the slightest to protect their self esteem and honour! Or is getting ridiculed by ex-MM in front of a 1700 audience equivalent to receiving a badge of honour? Are they masochists to please the sadist? Or is NTU Students' Union, part of NTUC? Part of PAP? To glorify the man at any price . . . before he bites the dust?

I hope not. I honestly think that Farouq and Joan are young decent Singaporeans doing right, asking pertinent questions that impact the well-being of all Singaporeans. It is just unfortunate that the man fielding the questions is an arrogant, callous bullying prick.

There was a write-up on the same shit that happened 2 years ago at NUS [Link]

May be what the old man said is correct: "We haven't been brighter as a population; we have become more educated, that's all". Is that why we have MPs like Kate Spade in Marine Parade and Kee Chiu in Tanjong Pagar!

I simply don't understand why NTUSU and other organisations enjoy inviting this old man. To get more publicity, more eyeballs? Like his son who left him out of the Cabinet, why not let the old man walk into the sunset with honour and respect. Why let him cause havoc to his stature as an ex-statesman by belittling others and losing self-respect for himself? In the same breath that he described university graduates as educated but not bright, would one describe him as a brightly educated and experienced old man who is past his use-by-date?

I do not understand what the Ex-PM-Ex-SM-Ex-MM wishes to achieve by scoring against the young ones in such condescending and reprimanding manner? He did his son and George Yeo (and other ex-PAP Aljunied MPs) no good when he threatened residents of Aljunied GRC that they will have to repent for the next five years if they voted WP. The residents have decisively voted against his wish! Residents there have cocked him a snook which he so richly deserves!

"So being politically aware after the election means you just got excited for the election and voted for one party or the other does not mean you are politically aware. If you are politically aware, your vote must have been much wiser." [Link] So the 40% in the May GE were daft while the 35% in the recent PE were wise?

Oops, excuse me while I go repent in my daftiness . . .

What is written above is meant to tickle your funnybones. Now comes the serious part: My grandparents and parents taught me that respect cannot be commanded. You need to work and earn it. "Bo Tua Bo Suay" works both ways. "Being old" does not equate to "being wise, respected or honoured". Hubris, contempt for the less endowed, false pride, insensitivity and senior age do not make one "old and wise". Locking up one's opponents without trial for decades does not make one "old and wise". Writing memoir after memoir in whatever language to validate one's being does not make one "old and wise". Ultimately, we die. The legacy one leaves behind is left to the perception and interpretation of each individual who cares enough to seek. Most don't even give a fook!

You really got to stop criticizing our recently demoted MP, LKY.

He is our weapon of mass destruction against the MIWs. Nobody makes a mockery out of the MIWs the way the old man can nowadays.

The minute the old man speaks, the MIWs are silent. Their brains stop working. Instead of fixing the Opposition, they go into a defensive damage control mode.

His new title should be Honorary Member of the Opposition.

Just wait until Parliament goes into session. The minute the old guy starts to open his mouth to demolish the Opposition MPs.

The newspaper editors will have to work over time to put a positive spin into his every pronouncement in Parliament. I'm not sure if even his party Whip can do anything.

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

And with each passing year, his value in Parliament can only increase to our advantage.

i am willing to wager with LKY that Joan will not end up like WeiLing. ( of course i will have to put in place an agreement to collect from him, dead or alive )

seriously, the old fart should be the last bugger amongst fathers to dispense advice.
we only need to ask ourselves, what are the odds with a daughter who looks and behaves like WeiLing and the package includes a prospective father-in-law like old fart himself ?

ps: if only WeiLing and Ah Loong could have swap gender, then things could have been alot better
for old fart.

When you face this old man who likes to talk and speak what he always think is right and never wrong, you got to see him just as any ordinary old man not LKY. Even if he is wrong he will always used his famous phrase 'I STAND CORRECTED'.

And when you do start a "argument" with him he takes great pleasure (real pleasure) in tearing you down like what he did to many people who chose to cross swords with him. Including those that are stupid to go listen to his preaching and get wallop when they ask pointed questions for him to answer. Some are dead (dead penniless) and some are still alive but chose to leave their home country.

Seriously, the old man is truly a weapon of mass destruction against the PAP. Trouble is, like the Emperor and his new clothes, nobody within the PAP dares to tell him so, and nobody can do anything about it.

In any case, Singaporeans, or at least 40%, just continue to ignore his threats, and more have been ignoring what he is saying nowadays. Trouble is, he still does not get it even after GE2011.

His words now carry little weight in cyberspace except eliciting ridicule, and contain much less the wisdom to change people's thinking after implementing that disastrous population policy of stop at two.

Would Singaporeans heed his advice to procreate? Not in a thousand years.

Dear Fish,

to set the tone straight, I voted for WP the last time.

But your blog entry reeks of childishness & biasness.

LKY may not command your respect, but I am sure he certainly earned it.

If people think he's mellow down since he's aged, they are mistaken.
Arrogance has always and will always be his middle name.
Just blame on the daft locals who put him on the pedestal to worship him like God.
Li Ao, that Tawainese talk show host is right, that we are stupid to allow him to control our lives for so long:

Dear Anon above,

If you think so, you should stop reading fish's article.

Personally, i like his humor and biasses. It makes my day !

You can always read the MSM and watch CNA if you are seeking non-biasses and fair reporting if you prefer. Though I beg to defer.

The old man may have earned all the respect in his earlier years and should have just faded away gracefully decades ago.

But he himself has been destroying his own legacy over recent years by not doing the right thing by being arrogant, vindictive, unrepentant and always trying to hold Singaporeans hostage with veiled threats.

I also voted for WP for all the above reasons.

How can the old fart marry his daughter away when she looks like and behave like a man ? It is even more absurd that the old fart says it is a hard truth that someone wanted to his daughter when she look more like a L ?

Like the saying goes, people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. If Lee Wei Ling did not listen to papa's own advice to get married, it's proof that Lee Kuan Yew does not command respect - even from his own daughter.

Who is the Master of Puppets?

A most telling tidbit from our old man during the QnA was "is Sinkies Political Aware?"

MR Lee:
So being politically aware after the election means you just got excited for the election and voted for one party or the other, that does not mean you are politically aware.

He is must be smirking to himself as the real power lays in deciding the Alternatives!

Vote PAP or WP, it will be the same dickheads screwing us over!

The electorate can only wished once its done at least have the kind decency to give us serfs the REACH AROUND and jerk us off while they screw us wholesale!

What fun for them to create this DIVIDE and RULE in serfsgapore?

MR Lee on political divide:
What's good for the higher income will be resented by the middle income

Reganomics 101!

While we Serfs labor and pile their tables full while...

We Serfs can only gaze longingly at them to throw Scraps down to the floor for us to fight over.

My Ans to him would be

Pardon my england as i m a lowly N level Serf.

The posters from the 60's and 70's speak more than a thousand words!

The low fertility is to a large extent related to the stop at two campaign which began in the 60's. I dont buy into the argument that the stop at two campaign was relevant for its time. The disaster of the stop at two policy, reared its head in the 80's.

Kudos to the social media for educating the younger generation.

to hsq,

sorry, but this is exactly why i am concerned about the mindset of people (you) who read blogs... the "if you don't like it, then don't read" attitude...

it's akin for me to say - "then if you don't like him, then don't stay here!"

but obviously the statement above would have reeked of the same childish behaviour.....

At September 14, 2011 at 3:10 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

I believe Hsq is well aware LKY won't be staying long, so no need for those who despise and detest him to pack up and leave. LOL

The old fart may escape the conseqences in his lifetime, but I believe other familee members will not be so lucky.
Expect the 40% to show no sympathy.
