When your land is stolen from beneath your feet

The title The Atlantic selected for the video—”When Your Land Is Stolen From Beneath Your Feet”—may sound emotionally manipulative until we remember that theft was what the Singapore Prime Minister advised Singaporeans to do in order to stay ahead of global economic competition. As reported in TODAY, PM Lee Hsien Loong urged, “Singapore must not only protect its lunch but steal other people’s lunches.” This is not merely an unfortunate use of language, but a refrain repeated by Singapore’s leaders and citizens. However, one can no longer excuse Singaporeans by thinking that they are victims of brainwashing by the state. No, they are in cahoots with the government to extract the most from their poorer neighbors for themselves—sand, water, human labor. It makes one deeply ashamed to be a Singaporean, to be so morally bankrupt.

Jee Leong Koh posted the above in an article in the TRE. This Mr Jee or Mr Koh, I am confused, only bananas could do this kind of thing, to confuse others in the way they write their names, has an important point to make. His article was about Singapore buying sand from Cambodia by dredging its rivers and causing damage to the rivers ecosystem. True, everything human beans do affects the environment and lives around them. Dredging the river is only a small part of it, nature will repair it when things settle down, just like the reclamation of land from the sea. Life will find its own way back and thrives again, as long as the damage done is not permanent and beyond repair.

There are many worse things that we are doing daily to destroy the ecosystem and life on earth that we do not seem to care about right in the heart of this island. The worse thing that we are doing to kill ourselves and planet earth is the indiscriminate population of life on earth. Thing of all the things and livestock needed to sustain a life of 80 or 90 years. Thing of depleting the ocean of fishes because of the growing population, the consumption of raw material and energy and energy production etc etc. Dredging some rivers, if done responsibility is a necessity, to keep the river healthy for the ecosystem. It is greed, and irresponsible actions that are most destructive, just like natural population grow and death against inflating of population recklessly and irresponsibly.

But this is not the main contention of my article. My point is from this sentence, ”When Your Land Is Stolen From Beneath Your Feet”. Do the daft Singaporeans understand that your land is being stolen from beneath your feet by the foreigners being imported here in huge numbers that are unsustainable? Think of a confine space with 2 white mice, then 10, then 100, then 1000 and so on. When would the numbers reach a point when every mice will be fighting and eating each other?

The foolish concept of economic growth without looking at the limitation of space and the ecosystem can only come from fools with eyes blinded and not seeing further than the tip of their nose. Our country is being stolen from beneath our feet without the daft knowing what is happening.

Please do not worry RB, Singapore will be OK. Remember what our leaders have constantly told us, CECA is good for us and all MNC from India will bring good jobs for Singaporeans. GDP will be in double figures and all will be well. So Uncle RB, do not fret.

Good morning.

Worry not worry not.

Sgeans are very very very friendly.

So ok and so no sweat that 70% gave a massive massive YES at the last GE! Correct?

@ tsk tsk tsk too judgemental lah

I think you are very mistaken. Most people know what’s going on, even the daft ones. Thy just don’t agree with you, and suffice to say, neither you nor anyone else has a monopoly on the OBJECTIVE truth.

My architect, engineer and finance friends tell me that Singapore, if done right, can sustain 15 million souls. Fact: they don’t have a monopoly on the objective truth either...even though they’ve arrived at their claims using calculations and models. We know, those things don’t always work as intended.

I look at Singapore as a Grand Social Experiment (GSE). You can make all the positive and negative assumptions you like, extrapolate data, build mental and computer models, but you won’t know what works until you TRY it out, observe the results and analyse your findings. EXPERIMENTATION is key, without it, you are just blowing smoke up your arse.

So I say, on with the GSE. Open up the borders, see what happens. Disregard “noise” (naysayers, complainers) since they don’t have any objectivity or a whit of empiricism about them. They just go with feelings and emotions...and that is NO WAY to plot the future of a great cuntry like Singapore.

Lee Hsien Loong made an error by saying “Steal people’s lunch”. The correct analogy/ metaphor is “EAT people’s lunch”, meaning to be so competitive and driven that you demolish the competition and dominate their sector. Similar terms are “disruption” and “creative destruction”.

As usual, politicians talk too much cock...they get the “general idea” right, but since they’re not competing in the market, they have no clue what they’re saying --- their speeches being prepared for them by speech writers and their personal assistants.

There’s a new book beginning to trend have a look at “Loonshots” by Safi Bachall an Indian-American physicist.

There is a growing number of Singaporean entrepreneurs and business people attending Singularity University. If you plan to disrupt and conquer, this could be a great way to spend some money and time.

Or you can just stay where you are and complain...and get absolutely NOWHERE. 🀣

You die, your business! ...so stay hungry and eat people’s lunch!

@ humbleideas

Monsanto is a great stock to own. The State’s money should be invested in companies which are solid and make shit tonnes of money, have dominance in their sector, and hopefully globally, and have “pricing power” --- the ability to control the price of not only its products, but the sector.

It also should have a “moat” --- i.e. some form of ROBUST protection to dissuade competitors from “eating it’s lunch” and ensure long-term stability and dominance.

And of course the business has to have a track record of profitability, large free cash flows, have no debt or debt which they can service easily...and generally be “bullet proof”.

Agribusiness is great because people gotta eat --- whether recession or boom, war or peace...we all require food.

The State’s money should find the safest securities with good returns. Sometimes the State loses money on investments, every investor experiences this. The key then would be to have WINNERS to make up for the losers.

I don’t agree that one should let one’s personal feelings of “morality” interfere with money management of “other people's’ money”. It is fine if you yourself apply your feelings, emotions and morality to your own life and investments. But when you are required to do a job, you do the job. Simple as that.

Taking advantage of a bad contract signed by Hyflux, this gov is gonna eat up an entire operational Tuas Spring Desalination Plant for $0 even though it is built with 900M hard-earn monies of mom-and-pop investors who invested in the national asset. (With so many confidentiality clauses in the contract, no way retail investors can do due diligence.)

Is the govt action even morally sound?

And the people of Singapore, are you proud of that our government is eating the breakfast, lunch and dinner of our own people?

@ 954 --- win -- shout for joy, lose -- cry like baby

Aiyah. Investing money got risk lah.

Attribution Bias: When people “win” when speculating/ investing they feel so fucking proud believing that it was their “smarts” and “attitude” (yeah, write a self-help book lah) that enabled them to WIN.

However, when they lose --- they blame other factors --- other people, the govt, god, foreigners.

All cognitive biases are entertaining, but the attribution bias is so much fun. Without the attribution bias at play, Sheeple’s Corner At Hong Lim would not exist! Sheeple’s Corner needs a ready supply of cry-babies to mutually masturbate each other in their shared misery.

Water, is the next “big thing”. For e.g.: Dr Michael Burry (one of the short sellers in the GFC) is quietly acquiring “water assets”.

Singapore is too vulnerable. Malaysia has proven a difficult study where water is concerned. So Singapore has little choice but to work toward being self-sufficient. It is a matter of national security.

Go Temasek! You can do it! 🀣

@ 1041

I don't think suicides should be reported. They are not "news".

Seriously, think about it --- what LOGICAL PURPOSE is served by the reporting of suicides in the media? The reporting of suicides are Suffer Porn which only functions as fodder for people's fascination with the suffering of others. For e.g.: after a horrific road accident,people will gather to see what's what, and even use the numbers of the vehicles involved to "buy 4D".

People also "buy number" when they learn about suicide.

Only the police and relevant authorities need suicides reported to them, and them alone only.

But since you all love to experience the "shiok" you get by witnessing tragedy, the MSM will oblige you. Hey, it drives up advertisement revenue!

Don't bluff lah you all...you luuurrrve to see people suffer.

@Anon 9:54am, @All,

Like I said, 99% of people can't make money in investing whether stocks, properties, or business, or whatever. They have a gambling mindset & simply want to sit back and win / collect money. Investing doesn't work like this. Those retail Hyflux investors put too much of their money into it (concentration risk) and got burned through their own laziness -- lazy to learn, lazy to remove their own ignorance, lazy to monitor, lazy to study the company & industry, lazy to deep dive into the company's financial reports, basically lazy to think.

You're wrong when you said Hyflux used the $900M for building Tuaspring. Most of the $900M was used to repay previous loans & bonds by senior creditors, or to buy back their pwn shares. This was already the 1st sign that Hyflux was simply using new money / new investors to roll over previous investors, or trying to artificially prop up the share price.

Those who bought the preference shares in 2011 could be forgiven for their initial decision, since at that time Hyflux appeared healthy in both profits & free cashflows. However anybody who knows anything about investing & bonds will know that 6% is "junk bond" status, even more so with 8% step-up if not redeemed by 2018. Triple-A rated Temasek & DBS bonds yielded barely 3+% or 4%.

By 2015 Hyflux's annual reports & financial statements (ESPECIALLY CASHFLOW STATEMENT) showed that there was a big stink in their business model & frankly not sustainable.

Even for investors who don't know or not interested in Fundamental Analysis will know something is wrong just from the share price itself. Prices incorporate all known facts about the company & the business, and by end-2015 the Preference Share price had shown a marked deterioration. Investors could still have sold & gotten out then with a slight 3%-4% capital gains somemore.

As for those who bought the Perpetual Securities in 2016 --- totally no excuse. The $500M was purely used to pay off previous senior creditors & not for new investments or even to strengthen their balance sheet. This was stated clearly in the prospectus for the Perpetuals. By 2016, it was damn clear even in the annual report (which are always written to paint a rosier picture than reality) that there were many years of NEGATIVE FREE CASHFLOWS, even when profits were still positive.

And anyway, by Sep 2017 the price of Perpetual Securities had started to deteriorate so badly that even a blind man will know something is wrong. Investors should have gotten out by end Sep 2017 for a 6%-7% capital loss.

If remisiers are so good as what RB always claim, the above is what they should have done along the way to guide & protect their customers. But I can guarantee that not 1 of them did so. Buy or sell is you die your biz -- I just collect commissions. Willing buyer willing seller. Caveat Emptor.

To anon 1201: Are you sure the 2016 prospectus for the perpetual bonds stated that the funds are to be used to pay off previous creditors??? This is an open confession of a Ponzi scheme. If the MAS did not stop it, then something is seriously wrong, and the unlucky buyers may have a case to file suit against the regulator? There is a Hyflux protest at Hong lim soon, this matter should give some support to the sad uncles and aunties.

This comment I disagree. So many here are bragging about how good they are in investing in stocks. So cannot be 99% losing money. And for someone who can comment, 'Investing doesn't work like this.' means this guy knows about investing stocks and must also be making good money, smart guy.

I don't think any remisier would dare to say he is very good in stock picking. If anyone is so good, he can just trade himself and be a billionaire like some of the clever investors here. RB never claims to be one. I can only say that I have never recommend my clients to buy Hyflux or Noble.

Remisiers are there to service their clients and share what they know with the clients, and to do best for their clients, and not necessary always right. The market is not as simple as the smart people think.

Or else no one would be saying 99% can't make money.

I'm glad to notice the idea is catching on :-) If people took that idea to the next GE, and decided their voting preference with it held clearly in their minds...maybe things might be different.

This was what happened & borrowing money (or issuing new shares) to pay off or roll over previous debts / bonds / debentures is legal & MAS approved.

At least WSG has educated most of you clowns 0.0001% of how financial markets work.

@RB,

Clever investors don't need to trade until billionaires --- most here in S'pore and around the world are perfectly happy & able to invest in order to consistently generate a few K of income monthly. So that they don't need to work if they don't want to, or answer to some asshole who controls their paycheck.

If remisers job is to just click buy / sell button, then no different to a piece of wood.

No, not stock picking, but being aware of what your clients have --- whether they bought based on your "sales pitch" or not. If you know or notice that they have some positions that are turning toxic, if you have fiduciary duty then it's your job to advice or at least alert the clients.

Unfortunately, remisiers here are not bound by fiduciary law & hence the relationship is purely commissions-based, willing buyer willing seller you die your biz, caveat emptor.

Even an average IQ person will know something is wrong with Hyflux by Sep/Oct 2017 just from the prices alone, and they would tell friends or clients if they are holding Hyflux stuff. Come on, most every other stock was chionging like fuck in 2017, but Hyflux was behaving like having a stroke.

Maybe Sinkies do not have to manage Sin as foreigners would do it for the locals one day.
All Sinkies need to do is collect and make more money.
Bear in mind not to accuse others of stealing when they paid for their purchases.

Track our (CPF) money

The Singapore sovereign-wealth fund, GIC Pte. Ltd., has acquired a 25% stake in Dutch hotel company citizenM - owner and operator of micro-hotels. Its stake brings citizenM's enterprise value, which includes debt, to EUR2 billion (US$2.3 billion), the lodging company said.

CitizenM is one of a small but growing number of microhotel brands, which stack up hundreds of smaller rooms and focus on modern design while turning lobbies into social hubs. Many don't have a full restaurant, offering a cafe or a bar with grab-and-go food service.

Founded just 11 years ago in 2008, citizenM has a portfolio of 15 hotels in eight countries and cities like Amsterdam, London, New York and Shanghai. In September, citizenM opened its second property in New York, a hotel with 300 rooms at 189 Bowery.

Private-equity firm KRC Capital, which was founded by Rattan Chadha - also founder and executive chairman of citizenM - and Dutch pension fund manager APG Group NV own the other 75% of the company.

The three owners have committed to invest a further EUR750 million for future expansion, the company said.

Wrong! Sadly and grossly mistaken.

In this world, every event/issue there are three main aspects of perception, namely the positive, the negative, and the unseen or unclear aspect.

The positive aspect of perception derives from the theatrical displays created with the intention to lull, dull, intoxicate and mesmerize the unthinking masses.

The negative aspect of perception derives from the observation, analysis, interpretation, and previous experiences of the section of the masses who can think.

The unseen, unclear or hidden aspect of perception derives from wisdom.

I had already said that it is not necessary for the Opposition to be the Government.

As long as the Opposition had the numbers, they can debate and shown the weakness of the.Ruling Govt.

As equal in strength and numbers, they can twart or stop any unfair bills into laws.

Thus, the Singaporeans might be subjected to any unfair policies that may harm them. Thus they might not suffer any unnecessary financial drawbacks.

If the Opposition can drumed many holes into their imbecile policies with better policies and debates, then the unthinking Sinkies might wake up and give the Opposition the votes to be the next ruling government.

Don't always play the broken record that the Opposition must be the Government of your spoiled radio commentary.

Screwity Guards Can Be Extremely Dangerous!

A screwity guard in Malaysia, Penang, Georgetown, was sentenced to death for rape and murder of 17-year-old student.

Judicial Commissioner Abdul Wahab Mohamed said based on the evidence, Tarmizi Yaakob, 23, was found to have caused the injuries that resulted in the death of the 17-year-old female student.

"The defence has failed to raise a reasonable doubt in the case.

"The defence was an afterthought for the defendant," he said in delivering his decision on Tuesday (March 26).

Defence counsel S. Yagoo in mitigation said the accused was remorseful and urged for a lighter sentence.

DPP Noor Azura Zulkiflee urged the court for a maximum sentence as it was a serious matter.

After raping her, Tarmizi, from Permatang Damar Laut, murdered the 17-year-old schoolgirl on Oct 25, 2015, between 7.30am and 7.30pm at the Bandar Baru Perda flats in Teluk Kumbar.

The charge under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.


Abdul Wahab also sentenced Tarmizi to 15 years in jail and three strokes of rotan for raping the victim in addition to the compulsory death sentence.

If an individual who has committed a crime of enjoying the pleasure derived from someone's body to satisfy his lust, and then killed her, must be sentenced to death by law, what should those who enjoyed the money of the masses and deliberately inflict much suffering upon them (tricking them to work until they drop dead without any pension nor retirement) get in turn, if convicted?

So for shit jobs, unless $$$ damn good, if not who want to do?

This sai cui or shit/ sewer filthy water processing maybe karma?

For some people with sensitive system,
everyday drink already stomach quite bloated and unwell?

So everytime have to boil and reboil the day cui over and over again to make sure all the bacteria are 1001% DEAD?

Very torture for some old people?

Make their daily life very tortuous and painful?

Scientifically, some people should research or investigate whether the sai cui processing is 101% "safe"?

If mrt breakdowns so often after billions and herculean efforts poured in, sai cui processor if fighting bankruptcy will never cut corner or run out of spare parts cos never pay suppliers but the sai cui plant still running?

It is very very very CHEK ARK to make your people drink such HORRENDOUS PLUS IHORRIBLE JUICES.

Wah, Stansberry Research ah? My my, you are continually full of surprises. I'm a big fan of Porter and his team --- Doc Eifrig, Dan Ferris etc. And now Porter has got Michael Covel, a trend follower as an associate, which is surprising for a "value-oriented" team.

Yes, Asians are becoming rich, and getting sick like everyone else, but only now they can PAY to live longer. Rising middle-classes are full of upside potential, and if you get in early and cheap you can do fucking well.

I'm concentrating on WATER at the moment. Iove heard unconfirmed reports that our SWFs are quietly buying up water rights in other cuntries.
