MANY S’POREANS FORCED TO DOWNGRADE DUE TO UNRESTRAINED INFLUX OF CHEAP FOREIGN LABOUR

There used to be a time when Singaporeans can look forward to upgrading. We can aim for the 5Cs (Cash, Condo, Credit cards, Car, Country Club membership). We can look forward to upgrading from 3-room HDB flat, to 4-5 room HDB flat to a condo and more. If you drive a Toyota, you can look forward to upgrading to a BMW. Dreams and hope are important in motivating a person to want to do well in life. Yes, these are just materials wants and are not the most important things in life. Now, some Singaporeans find themselves out of jobs due to the mostly unrestrained flow of cheap, foreign workers into Singapore.

I STILL BELIEVE IN THE PAP, PLEASE VOTE WISELY FOR YOUR NEXT GENERATION

I am a humble and normal Singaporean who borned in the late 60s penning my views on this government. I have seen and heard of people saying how bad the governing party is. As I always say, no government is perfect in this world. I still believe that Singapore is in good hand if the PAP is still in government. Just imagine PAP has been in government for half a century and out of sudden another party took over, can you imagine what will be like in the future of Singapore?

A SIZABLE OPPOSITION IN PARLIAMENT IS THE ONLY SAFEGUARD FOR S’PORE’S FUTURE

In December last year while speaking to his Party comrades at a People’s Action Party (PAP) event PM Lee Hsien Loong commenting on the opposition’s intent to act as checks and balances on the Government said “that for every one more ‘checker’ in parliament there will be one less doer, thinker and leader in the government to serve the nation and the people.”

S’PORE PARENTS STOP STRESSING YOUR KIDS & LOVE THEM WITH ALL YOUR HEART

I fully understand the tremendous pressure of the Singapore's education system and your great love for your children, wanting them to excel and do well academically but life is so much more... Love your children as much as you can but stop seeing yourself as the authoritative figure, trying to control their lives... Guide them well, step by step... commune with them as good friends do... be there always no matter what kind of results they get... The roads are theirs... you cannot dictate them to walk the paths you want them to... even though you may think yours are better ways...

CHAN CHUN SING: S’POREANS MUST BE OPEN TO FRESH IDEAS & FOREIGN TALENTS

Speaking at the annual Economic Society of Singapore (ESS) dinner on Thursday evening (7 Aug), Social and Family Development Minister Chan Chun Sing said that Singapore needs to look at strategies that will enable it to “future-proof” its society for the possible challenges ahead. He then talked about the need for Singapore to be open to ideas and talent. He said, “Darwin said that only the fittest will survive. But fitness is not just about strength but more about the speed of adaptation. To adapt fast, we must be open to ideas and talent. Ideas and talent are attracted to systems that protect and reward them.”

Messy SG roadworks is a reflection of Singapore’s messy regime

Our roads used to be smooth and not bumpy, even drawing praise from Malaysian friends who condemn their roads in their country for being full of potholes and the general poor upkeep. But look at the terrible condition of our roads now. Almost every road in Singapore from Pasir Ris to Bukit Timah to Yio Chu Kang is being dug up for one reason or the other. Even roads in private estates are being dug up.

End of Existing Growth at All Cost Policy for PAP Government

Growth at all cost mentality in Singapore has cost Singaporeans a lot in the form of social dis-amenities. There are two disparate groups in Singapore now. The post 65 generation enjoyed the successes and a typical Singaporean can own up to 3 properties, collecting rental and enjoying a respectable lifestyle. This group of Singaporeans, together with new citizens need to ensure the economic friendly policies sustain. This is so needed to support their asset values.
