HALIMAH YACOB SAYS SG'REANS VALUES MULTIRACIALISM & MERITOCRACY

This is just another in a daily exercise of pushing the agenda, and painting Mdm Halimah Yacob as a worthy candidate. Her campaign has already started, all thanks to the mainstream media. Let's not waste time, and just welcome Mdm President to the Istana already.

JOSEPH SCHOOLING SUCCEEDED BECAUSE HE DIDN'T FOLLOW S'PORE-STYLE MERITOCRACY

The Schooling phenomenon is amazing – it stir up so much curry in the pot. Truthfully, it is never about hard work alone or the capacity to dream big like what PM would have proclaimed. If he followed Meritocracy – Singapore-styled – August 13 would probably be a rather uneventful day. The brutal truth of his success is not just because of the factors above, but because his family did things that are totally Un-Singaporean; like spending more than a million dollars by selling their house and investing painful growing years in providing the best environment to train their son in competitive swimming… with no guarantee of winning of course.

The government is simply forcing parents from less privileged areas to register for the not so good schools in their areas, which means denying their children the opportunity to move up." said another parent.
