We are doing just fine



While in the church, the pigs were at their usual selves, gorging at the huge buffet spread. Napoleon looked at the table and at the other pigs and smile. ‘We are doing well, exceptionally well. Everyone agree?’ The rest of the pigs just nodded their heads without looking up, too busy feeding themselves and no time, no interest in anything else. Their hands were full, their mouths were full, their pockets were full, life was really good.

‘Oh about those noises that you heard, just tell them to live within their means and don’t over indulge in anything they can’t afford. Tell them space is a problem and flats will be smaller. We need the space for another 5 millions to ensure the buffet table is full all the time. There is no need to farce about that. We will design the small flats so well, cost a bit more money though, that they will not know the difference. In fact their quality of life will definitely not be affected. And tell them to walk, good for them. A Brompton bike is the Rolls Royce of all bicycles. Good for the bottom and riding on it for hours would not feel the strain. The bottom will feel just as good and happy. With such excellent bikes there is no need for cars. Advise them that cars are too expensive for them. Tell them to be prudent. And make sure they don’t squander away their CPF. Someone work on this, make sure their CPF savings are put to good use, for their own good.’

Nobody said anything. They continued gorging with the food, endless food and endless choices. Life was good, damn bloody good. 

Now who is complaining? Anyone not helping themselves with the buffet or not invited to the buffet only got themselves to blame, when the best will get the best. From each his best and to each his needs. Some need more, some need less.

I think it is good to rock the boat...especially when the people like me think eveything is fine.

The boat-rockers are great entertainers. They cannot leave well enough alone, they always have to kpkb, doom-and-gloom and disrupt the peace. Why? It is their nature -- as 'boat rockers'.

Please continue with the show. Make sure you finish big -- with the spectacular, futile, epic disaster ending that rivals Hollywood.

Got front-row seat and beer?

Sinkieland could be a real paradise if the wealth of the country is share more equitably, not $1m for me $1 for you. The country has so much money if the numbers given by the two SWFs are true. They are making so many billions but who is benefitting from them?

Or there is really no profit and therefore nothing to distribute around? Thus more designs on the people's money and savings?

You can't blame those pigs. The only person to blame are those who gave the pigs the mandate to do what they did.

Yeh, cannot blame the pigs. Blame the person born in the year of the Pig.

Pigs get FAT, Hogs get SLAUGHTERED

Be careful with your self-interest and greed.

All this pork talk is making me hungry.

Selamat Hari Raya.

... but hunger can result in you over-eating and thus creating potentially unhealthy issues.

Like hunger, greed is good. Anger is also good, and so is horniness and envy.

But do you allow the emotions to control you, or are you capable of moderating the emotions such that you get it "just right"? "Just right" meaning just enough to make you aware, and motivated to get off your lazy arse and do something RIGHT?

Got emotional control?
