Singapore, like master like servant

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Singapore's state controlled newspaper the Straits Times online edition of Dec 15, 2010 has the story "Punishing for suicide bids". The story ran in the wake of a string of suicides, mounting in number, with a case yesterday being reported of a
Chinese national resident in Singapore (Singapore is almost a satellite Communist China city now), a woman who had almost miraculously survived a fall of 10 floors from her high rise apartment into it's swimming pool. The newspaper story was the government thinking aloud, as is the very purpose of the state controlled propaganda that is dished out daily, of whether these suicide attempts should be punished.

The fact is, as would be known by anyone following the Singapore propoganda that many bad practices, for want of a better phrase, are taking hold in the island. For one, there are suicides in the island everyday, the preferred method being jumping off the ubiquitous skyscrapers which has pigeon holes (tiny little apartments) in them where the Lee Kuan Yew's "digits" live (digit is the term Lee Kuan Yew once referred to his people), without parachutes. When they fall, there is the expected loud thud, the police come with the ambulance and the dead person is carted away within a few minutes and the blood hosed off with water. In the past people used to watch in horror but today it is so commonplace and since most Singaporeans have seen at least one suicide, they don't care anymore.

Also you recently have the rampant mayhem and murder in public by youths as young as 8. Since guns are unavailable in the island, to kill and maim, they bring along knives, swords and machetes. It is possible to see young teenagers in gangs walking along the streets brandishing the deadly weapons as if they were quietly going on a hunt. And then after they have killed or maimed their enemies, the bloody gory pictures of a boy dying in a pool of blood are shown in the propaganda sheets almost as s form of entertainment. The people who say Singapore is a safe place have to have their heads examined.

Lee Kuan Yew as we know has no religion. A reading of him tells us that he did not care too much for such things as principles, or care and compassion. To him, what mattered was to win over your competition, no matter how it is done, which in his case was to abuse the legal system to destroy his opponents, control the press and deny press freedom and to defame or jail anyone that questions his authority. And as the saying goes, Singaporeans over whom he rules as the supreme ruler naturally think that is the way to live. Like Master like Servant.

And these killings, suicides and the unprecedented number of criminals who cheat and defraud has to be a reflection of what Lee Kuan Yew himself believes.

Singaporeans today are by far an irreligious people. If they had a religion, it has to be money, just as Lee Kuan Yew believes. And because Singaporeans have no constitution or a set of rights, they are like a people without a direction or a foundation. Just like Lee Kuan Yew, to cheat and destroy your neighbour through unjust means is no longer looked upon negatively since that is exactly how their leader lives. In Singapore, it is not men of courage, purpose in life and principle who succeed, it is those who grovel and sing praises to Lee Kuan Yew who manage that. A good lawyer is not someone who excels in the law, as there is no law, it is someone who puts away Alan Shadrake 6 weeks in jail in violation of his right of freedom of speech, to please Lee Kuan Yew who is.

In every walk of life, as the Constitution is destroyed, and the path to success is to be crafty and devious, the people have no faith in their institutions, they are left to drift in any direction, not knowing how to live or what men should aspire for.

And that is why, in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore, suicides, mayhem and murder, cheating and dishonesty is the order of the day. I cannot for a moment believe that such a society is either worth living in or defending.

LKY is the chief Mafia of Singapore. He is fond of giving interviews to the New York Times, and associates himself with Wall Street. May be like the Wall Street greats of Bernard Madoff and Lehman Brothers he is authoring his own self-destruction. This is creative destruction of capitalism. Perhaps he will emulate Harlem and rebuild a different Singapore in the next wave, a Singapore without a soul, just digits, animations and electronic currency.

Singapore will act as the conduit for drug trafficking, corporate tax evasion, money laundering and terrorist attacks. For a country without a soul will do anything to please its Mafia chief who is none other than LKY. All these under the guise of innovative thinking ahead of the curve and need for economic survival. Today in Singapore you don't call a spade a spade but what the LKY junta and bootlickers deem it. Law is no longer law but the Mafia will rule with fear and terror. Terrorists will be spared for their creative destruction. Corporate tax evaders will be christened as top entrepreneurs and rewarded by LKY. Money launderers will go unpunished because Singapore is a Mafia financial hub. Terrorist will reign as the chief ordnance suppliers are the Singapore defense industries exporting arms to terrorists all over the world through counter trade.

Wikileaks will expose all these in due course.

The old fart is only concerned with siphoning away public money in any possible and countless way they can to enrich themselves. With all the big fuss about discouraging Singapore citizens from patronising the Casinos, not many outsiders realise that the old fart has devised even more nefarious ways to tap money from the locals by providing outlets all over the island to gamble on almost anything eg horse racing around the world, football, toto, 4 digit lottery etc etc. Surely the effect on those who are perpetually addicted to this typical Singapore culture created by the old fart can be extremely devastating leading to suicides, divorces, loan shark crimes etc etc. No one knows how much revenue is derived from the gambling taxes and whether the tax rates are legitimate. Now you can see the double standards applied to Singaporeans in regard to the casinos and the local gambling scene.

The best way to solve the problems Singapore is facing would be to increase the salaries of the leaders , only with greater remuneration then the quality of leadership will improve.

WikiLeaks: Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew disdains Myanmar leaders
Dec 15, 2010, 7:09 GMT

Singapore - Singapore politician Lee Kuan Yew in a confidential US diplomatic cable released Wednesday by WikiLeaks expressed his scorn for Myanmar's military regime, saying the generals were 'stupid', 'dense' and difficult to deal with.

Recording a supposed meeting between Lee and US diplomats in Singapore in October 2007, the cable published by the whistleblower website quoted Lee as saying that dealing with the regime was like 'talking to dead people.'

Singapore's former prime minister and now minister mentor said China had the greatest influence over the Myanmar junta and it was worried that the country could 'blow up,' according to the cable.

Lee also said he was wary about some members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), noting that Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam should not have been accepted.

He said that stability in the region would be enhanced the more ASEAN was able to 'get its act together,' according to the cable.

'However, ASEAN should not have admitted Burma [Myanmar], Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam as members in the 1990s, Lee argued,' it said.

The older ASEAN members shared an antipathy to communism and common values, which had been 'muddied' by the newer members, Lee was quoted as saying.

The economic and social problems of the new members made it doubtful they would ever behave like the older members, he said according to the US diplomatic message.

ASEAN comprises Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand.

Singaporeans are still ultimately to be blamed. They have a choice, they have chosen , just like Germans have chosen Hitler.

The revelations of LKY by Wikileaks is a clear resemblance of what kind of a person he and his cronies are in their hearts. For out of the meditations of the heart the mouth speaks. We see the true colours of how foreign policy is conducted and how malignant remarks are made of the neighbours in the region. Is that the only way to stay alive? I will be slow to accept a permanent residence invitation to be a part of Singapore and having to suffer the sublime calamity of my neighbours sabotaging me.

It is sad but true that Singapore like master like servant is heading in this iniquitous direction of "beggar my neighbour" and triumph over them. If this is the only way to live in Singapore I say no thanks, there are more to life than marginalising others in oreder to survive. LKY is to blame for being the master of all his bootlickers servants. To LKY his stakes are even bigger and it is to "bankrupt the opposition" Now you understand the motivations of his hideous and unequivocal acts of economic and psychiatric terrorism against his political foes.

Some says it was his Empress Dowager who was the mastermind but the dead tells no stories. The living LKY is a stigma for Singaporeans in many generations to come. Truly there is no better catch phrase than like master, like servant.

The more I read of LKY's leaks the more I am convinced he is a chief Mafia of Singapore. Why?"

Firstly, the allegation that leaks has to be read in their contect. What context? Its the Mafia context.

In order to have a full understanding of the Mafia's unique use of language it is necessary to realize the context in which it is used.

LKY's Singapore Inc is like the Mafia's major business which is providing "protection" for businesses in their territory. Basically, LKY insure that Singapore survives and its neighbouring countries do not give them any trouble. This he does by maligning them and marginalising their leaders. Businesses in Singapore come under his protection with promise of sovereign funds participation which he manipulates and massage them according to instructions to his cronies.

However, when everything comes under LKY's mob protection which the Singapore Inc is, the Mafia considers itself its "owner". He maligns Burma and its military junta which only the drug lords of Burma like Khunsa dares to speak in like manner.

In a similar vein he judged the Malaysian leaders as incompetent.

Only a chief Mafia would act and speak like LKY.

The dark hand – albeit indirectly - of Singapore’s Machiavellian minister mentor, Lee Kuan Yew, in ensuring that Malaysia remains a non-competitor to his island republic has found its way out through WikiLeaks.

In an astonishing news report published in The Sydney Morning Herald, it was revealed that Singapore intelligence officials told their Australian counterparts that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim had committed sodomy in 2008 - based on their "technical intelligence".

This confirms the tall poppy syndrome of Mafia chief LKY.

Wikileaks just shows something that we have already known for a long time --- that PAP does not do what they preach. They have a kind of double standard hypocricsy.

1. PAP (especially old fart) sues everyone that says anything that may damage their reputation; and yet they go around damaging the reputation of politicians of surrounding countries, as shown by wiki leaks.
2. PAP wants to be a soverign state, free from external interference from any outside forces. Yet they go around dispensing advice about the internal affairs and politics of other countries. It's just like a double headed snake... really despicable.

As one of its usual shenanigans, the PAP held its elections to its Central Executive Committee few days ago. The cronies were re-elected with the exception of Mah Boh Tan. Do not be mislead, this is just pulling wool over your eyes. They are all hand-picked by LKY the Mafia chief. He is considered as the world's best election rigger.

A show piece for phoney democracy which is the hallmark of LKY and his cronies. Nothing to show for as a matter of factly it was boring to see those names once over again.

LKY remains a fixture of the party as long as he is alive and kicking and only a few neurons ticking in his brain. A real farce and a fly in the face of justice and true democracy.

JT said...

LKY is more than just the world's best election rigger, it is the world best conman.

From his staged-managed tears leading to the "founding" of LEEkapore to why his family is so exceptional over lesser Singaporeans. The Kingdom of Singapore is MADE BY LEE, LKY will raise from his casket to kick arse if things do not go to his plan.

Beware, his PM son is not so talented and will resort to petty underhand rogue ways to fulfil his late mother wishes. If his late mother was a commoner, Loong will be driving a taxi now.

In the coming elections it is imperative that Singaporeans deliver a minority government in the legislature. This is the trend in Westminister model governments like Canada and Australia of late. It is the best safeguard to prevent complacency in the PAP and making them accountable to the citizenry with humility and pragmatism. Minority governments do work for the national interest. It will be madness to let PAP have majority and perpetual rule by the Lee Dynasty. Enough is enough to LKY and his cronies.

A must read article:

One para below:

quality of education . No matter what the marketing machine churns out, singapore’s education is not that trains students to think out of the box and to solve problems. Both of us, came from Australian universities which train their students from preschool in knowledge based applications and theory, what the Singapore system does is uncreative rote learning which left many singaporeans without the global thinking skill sets required for a knowledge based economy.

The slimy and cunning LKY and his press media are starting to craft headlines for elections is coming soon. Look at this

SINGAPORE : Fewer immigrants were granted permanent residency and citizenship this year, according to the first Singapore Public Sector Outcomes Review which outlines challenges for the government.

Competition for jobs from foreigners, rising property prices and over-crowding in public transportation were among concerns raised by Singaporeans over the hot issue of foreigners and immigrants in Singapore.

In a sign that these concerns have been heard, the growth of citizens and permanent residents has slowed significantly to 1.01 per cent this year, compared to 2.5 per cent in 2009.

Singaporean terrorist Balraj Naidu was sentenced to imprisonment in the U.S. LKY is indeed the Mafia chief of Singapore.

See below

Singapore terrorist Balraj Naidu sentenced to prison in USA

Singapore's Baldev Naidu - convicted terrorist
Forty-eight-year-old Singapore citizen Balraj Naidu was sentenced on Thursday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

Naidu was convicted in October of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Naidu has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison for his terrorist activities.

Federal prosecutors say Naidu was part of a conspiracy to buy weapons for a terrorist organization in 1997.

The prosecutors say Naidu attempted to purchase grenade launchers, sniper rifles, machine guns, and other state of the art firearms worth US$ 900,000.

Naidu was charged following an undercover operation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office of Homeland Security Investigations jointly with Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Defense Criminal Investigative Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Baltimore Police.

A second Singaporean, Eric Pala, was granted immunity to testify at Naidu’s trial. This would imply that there are other known terrorist elements residing in Singapore.

Naidu, is the co-founder of Singapore’s Reform Party along with Kenneth Jeyaretnam, the party’s Secretary General. Kenneth Jeyaretnam is the brother of Philip Jeyaretnam of Singapore law firm Rodyk and Davidson.

In January 2011, Philip Jeyaretnam will become Managing Partner of Rodyk and Davidson, taking over from Helen Yeo, wife of former Singapore cabinet minister Yeo Cheow Tong.

This brandishing of words to bad-mouthing neighbours was a typical Singaporean trait that had its beginnings in the early 1970s. It all started with the return of Colombo Plan scholars to the civil service. Philip Yeo can be said to be the father of all bad mouthing when he used to bad mouthed colleagues who do not toe his line of thinking. He himself was Dr Goh Keng Swee's blue eyed boy. Even S R Nathan, Wong Kan Seng and Lui Pao Chuen were victims of his bad mouthing. Those who toe the line like Wong Kok Siew, Liew Mun Leong, Tay Siew Choon were rewarded for their loyalty to Philip Yeo.

Many civil servants in the Administrative service worshipped Philip Yeo and took to his ways of bad mouthing others to elevate self. This is the truth and the truth must prevail. It has become civil service culture and the political ethos of LKY and his imbecile PAP colleagues. They all sing the same tune.

As I have mentioned elsewhere in this blog you reap what you sow. This is the inevitable outcome which Singaporeans reap today. If they continue to sow a Lee Dynasty the end result will be a society of back stabbers or what is called "look like a innocent flower but be a serpent under it" This is the political ethos if I may call it of Lee Kuan Yew and his cronies.

If I may add.... it's not the skyscrapers that are commonly used recently for suicidals. It's the MRT... jumping off the platform as the train arrives. That is the reason they are now building fences on the edges of MRT platforms, supposedly to prevent people from jumping down the track. Will that help?

Also, as expected, the paper doesn't mention suicide. It tells lines like: There was a disruption in the MRT service along the XXX line because "A MAN (or a WOMAN) WAS HIT BY A TRAIN". $%@#^@!&$

"Hit by a train" eh? Or more like "jumped off to his/her death".

Anonymous said...

I remember the gov't controlled media in singapore...

mentioning a man collided with the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) train...

Also...it mentioned the Japanese patrol boat "collided" with the chinese fish trawler...but in youtube it shows the chinese ship "ramming" the japanese ship...

Lies for the sake of confusing the people...shows the type of people in charge of the gov't controlled media (all of it) in singapore.

Really silly and foolish to see this.
