A dirty house

When the house is dirty, the cockroaches, ants and flies will make it their homes. They will infest a dirty house to run riots in every nick and corner. They will become irritants to the owners. The owners can start spraying them and see their dead carcasses littering everywhere. But they will not go away. More will return to occupy the dirty house.

A more effective way is to clean the house, put it in order. Get rid of bad habits, dirty habits, disorders, and impose strict discipline and good behavior. When a house is in order, when a house is clean and not shitty, the roaches, rats, flies and ants will find it unsuitable or inhospitable to stay. They will go away naturally and will not reappear.

Buying insecticide spray, swaps, rat poison, roach traps, is only a temporary solution. The real and long lasting solution is to keep the house clean. And gluttony, eating too much and dropping crumbs everywhere, too much unfinished and unable to consume food, too will cause a house to become unhealthy and smelly. That’s when the irritating pests will return to haunt the owner.

Keep the house clean and in good order. And don’t anyhow bring in fair weather friends who are only interested in sponging and feasting in the house and with one foot outside, ready to scoot when the buffet is gone.

Sure infested by pests and insects and not bandits and gangsters.

Good question, that;
Who to clean house?

The lord of the house does not see a problem.
The minority shareholders are too scared to take action.

The house has to collapse under its own filth.
And deservedly so.

Whatever justified criticism we may throw at America.
That country will always manage to throw up a capable leader to clean house ... eventually.
Truly the land of the free and home of the brave.

Comments from the 72 year old granny that got whacked in Tampines Food Court.

Why this granny got to work till she dies and why some people collect million dollar pension till they die?

You can keep the house clean. You can even admit only "clean people" into the house. But it is futile if the house is built on the....wrong foundation.

Who is the game changer here?

Your multimillion dollars leaders?

Or the leaders waiting in line to take over their multimillion dollars royal position - the opportunists?

I think not.

Nice - a heart-felt article about the millions of "FTs" (note quotation marks) without once mentioning the vermin...

redbean, get over yourself and your hangups lah.

The idea for most people who carry some dissatisfaction, is to seek some relief. Sometimes that includes moving to another geographical location.

"Go to where the money and opportunities are". That's a no-brainer lah. If you were in the financial position of many of the migrant professionals and workers, you too would be seeking "relief" in another cuntree.

Anyway you metaphor of "cleaning house" is at best, wishful thinking.

The trend of increasing the population isn't going to ebb. Now that Japan is about to collapse, you might even find in the coming years a "Japanese invasion" -- this time a peaceful one.

The beauty of a metaphorical piece is that everyone can place it in any context and make sense out of it: )

It seems I've offend some christians...or people who CLAIM to be.

Nothing I can do about that.

Got tolerance? ;-)

The Christians are bodohs. Incredible that we have so many educated bodohs in the world. lol

It goes to show that an educated person can be as stupid as an uneducated person.

Meritocracy my foot lah

I would give Christians a lot more credit for intellect than the average bodoh who posts at the Temasek Review.

The Temasek Review is proof positive of why Singapore and Singaporeans are in the shitter, are bitter about their fate, are mostly all "victims" of a collective mania and lastly, deserve the authoritarian, one-party government they have.

Symapathy from me: zero, zilch, nada, bupkiss, zip.
