    There won't be the next generation if people are not going to have kids.

    The next generation will be the FTs who are the best of the best from all over the world.

    Many of them will intermarry with the locals. In 40 or 50 years a typical Singaporean will be a mixed blood of 20% English, 30% Chinese, 15% Indian, 20% American, 5% French and 10% German.

    Does the extra interest rate tier covers the PR as well?

    I believe everyone more or less knows what's going on, whether they wanna admit it openly or deny it. It so obvious everywhere, everyday. If majority are content, there would be no whispers. Just that the whisperings have gotten louder recently.

    And quite true, this isnt edmw...lol. I have only skimmed the surface. Shall not say more, there's no need to go deeper. Hehe

    It is especially important for the poor and less educated, who have much reduced mobility, that the country stays in good shape with a sustainable economy. If the country goes sour, who will suffer the most? Yet, any policy to try and bring in some vibrancy to the economy with special skills that are not available here, immediately met with howls of derision. I mean, who's side are you on? You really think the aunty cleaning at the coffee shop is better off if we shut out all foreigners?

    Even if opposition won all seats, *** still in power. No point having elections actually, waste of taxpayer dollars.

    Alamak, in the early days our ancestor also just came here to work and setted down here. Personally, i dont find what's wrong for others to come here.

    Singaporean, Malaysian, American, etc ....... it's just "label" we are still the "same", Human la.

    Live with an OPEN HEART! Everywhere is the same, sure have "good" and "Bad".

    There is nothing being "True" or "False", it just which side you are standing. As i always believe there is no "balance" in life. It just how you want look at it.

    A old granny working is not a bad thing. Some work not just for the $$$ and we should learn their spirits in a way. Everyone we seen in our life are worth to learn from them, we are learning everyday.

    Never ever "despise" anyone of their profession. Everyone has a role to play in this world and everyone is important.

    Btw, i am not pointing anyone. It just how i feel.

    How could that be? What a quirky conspiracy theory!

    But it shows deep down what people here believe, which is so sad.

    You may not be able to do well as the top-most successful banker or lawyer or property developer, but you do well for yourself, your career.

    This is an interesting sentence in PMs speech....
    The question here is just: How big do you allow the income gap to go? Are minimum wages of <$1000 a months for foreign workers and Singaporeans alike acceptable in view of multi-million $ wages of the top earners?
    Are the top earners enjoying a life of luxury because it is subsidized by thousands of people earning a fraction of a percentage of their salary?

    ponder about this....

    well said.

    Most of us are not opposition supporters.

    We just hope that more can be done for fellow singaporeans.




    Thank you
    More good years ahead.......

    You remind me of the game Bioshock. Also reminds me of the movie Gattaca.

    I wouldn't like to live in such a society. God (if you believe in one) doesn't want it this way. It will backfire. You should let nature runs its course.
