Singaporeans. Lee Kuan Yew's "digits".

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Lee Kuan Yew has said in Parliament that as far as he was concerned, Singaporeans are "digits". Mere items, objects, that he pushes around to best govern his island. And true to his his threat, he has done exactly that during the last 40 years of his rule over Singaporeans. He care 2 hoots what you think. Singaporeans to him are no better than sheep. He will push them around and they will obey. It is not a healthy life, either mentally or physically for a human. There is no reason why you should tolerate it.

These are the examples of Lee treating you no better than an animal. In spite of the fact you are taxpayers and citizens; and it so happens endowed with a constitution.

You know this already. He pays himself and his friends millions officially, which he calls salary. As if that was not enough, without your knowledge he takes much more. Theft. Another version of Mobutu of the Congo. Then he refuses you your CPF. He inflates HDB lease rentals to $300,000.00 a flat despite it is just a 100 year leasehold whose building costs was no more than $50,000.00.

He tells you that you purchased the HDB flat when in reality, it is a mere leasehold of 100 years, which he can terminate at any time. Not you.

On a daily basis, he distorts the news and dishes out propaganda to you through his state controlled media. You are kept in the dark as to what is really happening. He abuses the law to silence opponents. He handpicks politicians to fill his Parliament merely to approve whatever he wants. He then calls them his politicians when they are nothing more than unprincipled employees; there merely for the money. He orders judges to abuse the law, yet he claims that there is the rule of law. He pays handsomely to a Sikh lawyer to sue political opponents on trumped up charges.

He refuses to give you your retirement savings although he is required to do it by law.

In other words, he is treating each Singaporean as nothing more than irrelevance. This should be an insult to any human being. I urge you not to accept this humiliation and demand what rightfully belongs to you; your dignity. Stand up and do what is right for a human being. Join Dr. Chee Soon Juan and the opposition and protest these injustices. The island belongs as much to you as to this man, Lee Kuan Yew.

Every day in schools and at national events, the children and the people sing: Majulah Singapura.

But in a not-so-happy manner.

I ask myself, why?

Because they simply have no respect for the government at all.

Ok, in the schools you see here, only the teachers and the staff sing the National Anthem with some gusto.

The kids, all just diam-diam. Just sing very softly.

I ask myself, why?

This must be a joke. Are the staff singing it out of loyalty? Or just plain pretence.

The students of the school fail to sing the National Anthem loudly, the good ol' teacher standing in front orders them to recite the pledge one more time or sing the National Anthem one more time.

I ask myself, why?

Is that done out of loyalty, or just plain ordering them around?

I ask all the NS men out there, are you willing to defend this country that is yours truely?

How many will say yes?

The teachers who teach Social Studies, or any teacher or staff who works in a government or government-aided school say that they work for the government, so they have to follow what the government says.

Now, if that teacher was not working for the government, would they be singing a different tune?

Forget. About putting your money where your heart, mind, soul and mouth is supposed to be.

To serve your nation, is not about getting all that "nice" money, laying a iron rice bowl.

Singapore was not built by money alone, nor was it built up with money only.

The people who fought hard, sweat hard to make this country stand at its modern stage. Where has your conscience gone to?

The first-generation leader, the 'lead actor' Lee Kuan Yew and his son, Lee Hsien Loong, the 'supporting actor' are nothing more than a bunch of poor teachers.

Why poor. Because they do not know how to make the people of Singapore love their country.

The people don't have a sense of identity.

The media is not what it claims to be.

The education system is not what it claims to be.

The Government is NOT what it claims to be.
