Rogue govt, poor leader and bad ideas

Singaporeans have been warned of the potential of a rogue govt in the future. And very likely it will come in a package, rogue govt plus poor leader and bad ideas.  This is a standard package proven many times in history. The big big question is when will Singapore get its share of this package? It has to come, sooner or later, no country or civilization has been spared this fate. When is the delivery date?

So when will Singapore have to pay its due? Actually there is another point to consider. Historically, the people of the day, the leaders of the day, did not know that they had a rogue govt, a poor leader and bad ideas or policies. The govt of the day would think they are the best, of the best talents, led by the best and most clever leader, and the people believed so, and in the case of a democracy, elected them to be the rogue govt. A good example is the USA.  Oops, the US is a bit different. This time they knew they are going to choose between the devil or the deep blue sea, but because of the system they are picking the best of the worse.

The crux of the matter is that no one knows that there is rogue govt in charge, or the people did not know they had a rogue govt.  Oops, there are many angles to look at this point. It could be that the people knew but afraid to say so, and have no better choice to replace the rogue govt.  Or in the case of a dictator, the people just have no choice unless they could successfully remove the dictator.

Then there is the illusion or delusion spun around the rogue govt and poor leader and bad ideas. It is in another way like the story of the Golden Calf. The poor leader could push out a golden calf and called it God, or the best thing to have, the best idea or best policy. And the ignorant masses, without knowing a thing, just pray to the Golden Calf. And the poor leader is helped by the conspiracy of the elite who either knew that the Golden Calf was a fake, only gold plated, but went along, willing to compromise their integrity and honesty and intelligence to go along with bad ideas, praising the gold plated Calf as the real thing. When a poor leader is surrounded by sycophants or so feared that no one dared to oppose him or his stupid ideas, then everything goes, good idea, bad idea, silly idea, all will be carried through as best ideas. No one is wiser. No one will know that they already had a rogue govt, with poor leader and bad ideas.

When would Singapore be fated to meet this dreadful day of a rogue govt, poor leader and bad ideas? Thank God we are still having the most brilliant and talented men and women in the govt, with good leaders and good ideas. Pray that this will go on a bit longer or forever. Pray that Singapore will not suffer the fate of the forces of history, that a rogue govt is in place, a poor leader is leading the pack, and the ideas and policies are bad for the people and the people are able to stop this from happening.

Very likely, like the fall of Empires, things will change gradually, like boiling the frog and no one will be wiser, to know what is happening and Singapore will be history… one day. This is the inevitable truth of history, unavoidable, just when.

No need to go elsewhere, the 'rot' gahmen is already here in this planet earth long time ago. It was olso identified by a 'wise man' , nobody dared to challenge him when he was alived. When this 'rot gahmen ' took over, he invited many if his cronies to join him, he open the gates wide to invite the 'betterer fasterer n cheaperer' come, he gave out memberships to whoever wanto join his club, he jack up many prices ( housing, education, rental etc) to the extend that many unable to live & left this place, those who criticized him were jailed or silenced, & he even b so arrogant to tell big nations to adhere to international law, in recent meeting with gahmen of other nations he even push for a deal that someone dropped ..so who is that 'rot gahman' Lah...

No need to look further.

We already have one.

All policies mainly bad rammed down your throats.

Just yesterday, a young man with austic disabilities, my neighbour came and asked me to translate his Medical Shield Demand letter asking him to pay S$245.00 plus.

He said I not working, how to pay???

Worse than Ah Orr Obama Care.

Sigh

- What do you call the last 10 years of Singapore's government?

Annon 9.07. The last 10 years was not good and I do not see any sign of improvement going forward. The government under PM Lee seems to build walls around himself by filling up ministry posts with his kaki i.e. from the military. I am not saying they are no good but this indicate distrust of common folks. With is system, things will not get better.

70% OK-ed in 2015!

78% at the next GE!

No choice! Singaporeans are like that!

Will rule forever! No chance for oppositions! Wait "ku-ku"!

Unless there is an internal split between military and non-military!

So.....Be Happy Worry Less!

Tiok.

That's why majority Sinkies are picking PAP as the best of the worse. And rightly and wisely too.

If not, who can be PM if the opposition, instead of PAP, had won 93% seats in GE 2015?

U think Low Thia Khiang, Tan Jee Say, Chee Soon Juan or Ah Chiam's wife can work together as PM and ministers when they are not even on speaking terms with each other?

The opposition should realise by now that this is one reason they will never win, not to mention other things.

Wish the Day of Reckoning will arrive early, so that
whatever needs to be settled
and solved will be dealt with
early.
We should not allow problems to accumulate with no one able to solve them.

The earlier a society is cleared of its malaise the
better it shall be for the
People and the Country.

Let this land be ridded of
sin.

Going by the precedence of the Japenise economy, unfortunately this day may not arrive so early lah ....... definitely 99.99999% not by 2016 Christmas .......?

The Jap economy imploded in 1990 and had been in and out of the "ICU" on "life support" for the past 26 years ...... but still the world #3 economy leh ...... even larger than the strongest in Europe namely Germany ......?

The Jap G has been propping up (with tens of trillions of taxpayers $$$) many of their zombie banks, fin institutions, inefficient industries ...... but till now each time they can still "fire" trillions and trillions of fiscal stimulus, QEs under Abenomics (misguided?) 3 arrows ...... and still going strong leh .....?

l wont compare Sin
with Japan.
They share little
in common.
Japan is an industrial
giant for a long time
and shall be many years
to come.

Japan is a homogeneous
nation and it will remain
so for the Japs to ensure
their survival and prosperity
of the Tribe.

For Sinkapore, the Aristocrat
and Elite will sapu everything and leave the Sinkies to rot in Sin. That the Fate for having blind faith in the Rulers of Sin.

Singaporean people need TRUMP effect to wake up the establishment from his good comfort.(easy victory over WP)

The mass appeal of Gurmit Singh and Mark lee would erode the PAP dominance in politics

They should form a political party and named it as " Phua Chu Kang " with Their flag- Yellow Boot

The troubles for Singaporenese are:
1. Oppo capable party like WP exercises self censor. WP only want to be mp to not get into being attacked by msm. Msm also do not report on what they said in parliament. WP is a self contained system only those want to know them will go to their web sites.

2. The Pap are not able to take advantage of what the global economies of different countries can offer. The leaders only know how to open to immigration. Passed the white papers to open to 4 to 5 millions immigrants to buy properties as "economic growth", in figures. The leaders do not know how to create real jobs.

3. The locally born are trapped into doing NS and finding jobs of not their training in varsities to pay off highly price flats to survive families. The immigrants vs local unfair competition makes lives frustrated that creativity becomes secondary, survival becomes primary.
This prolonged drag in rivalry with immigrants has become a way of life. Working for employers has no loyalty to company. Anytime is the right time to be sacked and be replaced by foreigners.

The last point is killing both citizens and employers. There is no good products worth mentioning in Singapore for past 20 years. Salary cannot increase. Jobs can easily lost to foreigners makes spending on retailers a big questions.

4. Retailers suffer and ready to close shops when rental is high and purchasing power is low and lower.

Voters are happy to see opposition shrink their heads in their torsos, while the Pap leaders talk as if they know the outcome similar to handling the smrt year in year out.
Ports business is losing, export on major products like electronic is losing, export can drop by 12% and gdp can grow by -4.1%, these are hard to find in countries of capable leaders. Yet Singapore leaders are the most capable, at least their salaries say so. Their newspapers say so too.

They suppress the value of their currency , Yen to keep it lower than any Southeast nations.

They dont complained much about low Yen because they need cheap Japanese products, Japan investment, Japan technology back then.

Japan has 250% GDP of government debts size, Singapore has above 100% GDP government debt size. When interest rate increases, Japan will have to pay more. When US want Japan to bear all the defense cost, or US with draws, Japan will have higher debts.
Singapore may have to buy more F35, and the CPF withdrawal will further drag to 100 year old from 82 with small amount withdrawal and bigger amount minimum sum.

Japanese are in debt due to property at highest prices in 80s and 90s. Singaporenese are in det due to property at highest prices at 2000, 2010s. When interest rates are high due to Trump s policy, Singaporenese will pay like in hell. Further threatened by foreigners to take away jobs from them, if they want to survive, they must vote for a government that control strict immigration like the Japanese government.

If they continue with Pap, there will be good shows on how Singaporenese refuses to pay debts and borrowing will have far higher interest rates for the rest.

Good shows ahead for non Pap voters to watch some of the 70% kaput.

When the real estate bubble burst in 1990, the Japenise financial sector were devastated ......?

Due to several periods of deflation between 1990 to 2012, the Jap currency appreciated in nominal term of abt 100% against many currencies?

Only after 2 rounds of massive doses of Abenomics since 2013 did the yen sink abt 30% and exports begin to show some "signs of life" ......?

//The troubles for Singaporenese are://



1) When FED up interest rate, real estate bubble would likely be further stretch thinner?

2) US$ might appreciate and thus many cuntries external debts in terms of domestic currency value would likely multiply?

3) For small and highly open economy, fall in exchange rate implies erosion of purchasing power especially nano-size state with no resources?

Technically, the US interest rate can go as high as 3 to 5% by 2020?

That means the property bubble is likely to deflate?

Well done, Botak-nomics for planting the seeds of "economic implosion" between 2009 to 2011?
