The poor prostitutes of the media & a fumbling AWOL PM

So, after 11 days of total, complete and utter silence, our dearest AWOL prime minister has come out and said something about Mas Selamat Kastari’s escape. (I wonder if it had anything to do with TOC’s counting down the days he’d been silent. Great work, TOC!)

And what did the good dear prime minister say?

“This was a lapse, what to do, it’s happened.”

The words are so simple, yet they are so so poignant. So poignant in letting us all see the hopeless PM that we have.

Totally incompetent. Completely unempathetic. Utterly useless.

That is all the PM can say.

“This was a lapse, what to do, it’s happened.”

Remember this too: This is the same PM who justified his own salary increase of millions of dollars.

Look out for the THIRD MINISTERIAL SALARY INCREASE THIS YEAR.

It’s unbelieveable to me that we’re paying these idiots so much money.

Unbelieveable.

Mainstream scramble to cover up

Thanks again to TOC, the Straits Times Online report carried those words of the PM. (See screenshot above). BUT the printed version of the ST conspicuously omitted the quote, as one reader said on Molly Meek’s blog, besides others who have also noticed it.

I guess it’s not the first time that the media has scrambled to cover-up a foul-up by the prime minister.

Remember “Mee siam mai hum” which, through the media, became “laksa mai hum” and later “mee siam mai hiam” – “hiam” meaning spicy in dialect speak.

And in the 2006 elections, the media downplay of PM Lee’s “fix the opposition” and “buy my supporters votes” remarks.

And more recently, the media’s absolutely hopeless coverage of the JI escapee Mas Selamat.

How our lapdog media of poor prostitutes willingly fall over themselves to make their pimp look good is amazing to me.

It also makes me sick that in this day and age of the 21st Century where we boast of a well-educated populace and a “Global City” and what not, that there are such Singaporeans in the media who think nothing of lowering themselves in order to suck up and worship government officials as if they’re gods and demi-gods.

Nah, I shouldn’t compare them to prostitutes.

Prostitutes have more dignity than these immoral, pathetic and well, these fucks in our local media.

To the reporters who happen to read this, we are tired of your propaganda and your groveling at your master’s feet.

When will you have some sense of dignity?

PM Lee Hsien Loong has gone f#*# AWOL

pic-612a.jpg

On November 12, 2007, PM Lee Hsien Loong accused the Workers’ Party Aljunied team of going “AWOL”. (See Straits Times report).

“Our (People’s Action Party) five men are working hard, but the opposition’s five have scattered like monkeys when the tree fell.”

Mas Selamat Kastari escaped from detention on Wednesday, Feb 27. It’s now March 6 – 9 days since.

And where is our dear prime minister who made fun of others for being “absent”?

The fucking PM himself has gone AWOL!

Not one single word about the escape.

Not one single picture of him in the news.

Not a single murmur from his gold-plated mouth.

And yes, we are paying him $3.4 million a year.

PM Lee, where the fuck are you??

Is this how the highest-paid leader in the entire world behaves?

Run and hide, act blur, cower and scatter like a fucking monkey when the tree falls???

Come out and take responsibility and show your fucking face!

Be a fucking leader, for goodness sake!

I am going to offer constructive criticisms and out-of-the-box ideas

I am going to offer constructive criticisms and out-of-the-box ideas

This is a challenge to myself. I may fail miserably or succeed wonderfully. What am I talking about? We bloggers are mostly complainers – complaining after the fact.

So, I will try to stop doing that. But I know I will not be able to resist complaining. Heck, what will  I do if I can’t complain, right? So, what I will do is to try and post constructive criticism and out-of-the-box ideas and suggestions to problems we face, along with the complaints.

This is a personal challenge to myself – to see if I have better ideas and solutions to problems.

Shoot me. Criticise my ideas. Lambast me.

At least I try.

NOPE. NONE. ZILCH. NATTA.

So, The Online Citizen is caught in a controversy – or is it?

Controversy, by its very nature, is a devious animal. To get to the bottom of it, one would have to be patient, meticulous, and critical enough to sieve out the chaffs from the wheat. Distillation of the truth from the bullshit, to put it bluntly.

And so, lets look at the comment by “Jasper”, posted on Singabloodypore and which started the whole witch-hunting and frenzy feeding – well, at least by the rabid motley crue of anti-PAP Nazis which includes the rather dubious blog which names itself “Wayang Party Club of Singapore” (taken, obviously, from the comments of a PAP minister during 2006 GE about the WP).

YAY! No more blood will be shed for skimpily clad women!

This is so hilarious I almost fell off my chair. The police has given the green light for “skimpy servers” (New Paper) at 2 out of 7 entertainment outlets.

This brings back a dash of nostalgia vis a vis MCYS’ minister Vivian Balakrishnan’s fears about allowing bar top dancing. Balakrishnan had said:

A load of crap from the education minister

I haven’t been blogging for a while but I have to say something about this because it makes my blood boil when I see adults putting kids down.

I was floored when I read what was reported in the Straits Times recently about a school principal’s “advice” to her students.

“The Straits Times reported on Saturday that the principal of a girls’ school had told one of her Sec 5 classes they might as well apply now for places in the ITE because as they were unlikely to do well in the ‘O’ levels at the end of the year.” (ST)

Imagine my horror when the Minister of State for Education, Lui Tuck Yew, defended the principal by saying:

“Principals need to do their job to convey this message to the students and teachers to do their part to challenge them, set high goals and to help them achieve these goals.”

Did anyone notice the double-talk by the minister? A deft sleight-of-tongue, if you will.

Hooligan politics by COWARDS exploiting children

Now, I am a supporter of the opposition as a whole but I detest hooliganism, even in politics. In fact, especially in politics. Call me wet behind the ears but I do believe that in human interaction there must be respect, civility and maturity.

And most of all, I detest and abhor totally people who exploit children.

So, what am I talking about?
