    i think out of every 100 protests, maybe only 5 is taken seriously by governments, and out of these 5, 4 are given taichi results that achieve nothing other than to appease the protestors..

    Someone campaign about over population in the 70s. Hence, two is enough to effect a shrinking population.
    Someone campaign about excessive traffic, hence escalating erp adjustment.
    Someone campaign about low salaries may breed corruption, hence all the top gunners' pay went up through the roof.
    Someone campaign that we should complain less....


    Now, replace the word campaign with complain. Look who's complaining!

    no leh, they seem happy to protest even more.

    i think it has something to do with getting some. maybe protesting gives you rep points with girls.

    i dunno abt how u guys feel. but do realise singapore IS relatively low on the complain scale. in fact our government has almost no pressure maintaining control over the citizens. dun believe?

    *** has won many elections, mainly due to walk overs.

    singapore has one of the lowest protests rates, compared to countries like taiwan where strikes, protests actually occur on a daily basis.

    in fact we are so docile tat we only whine a lil online. if tats not GOOD enough for lky i dunno wad is. does he seriously expects us to go cheer support his pro PRC policies? i doubt so.

    it is one thing to groom local talents and make them continue singapore for wad it is.

    it is another thign ti buy foreign talents to go play olympics and do all the good jobs and snatch with us. and let singaporeans be the minority in our own country.

    and i quote from our ypap member.

    Do not be bitter and go on slapping on the Government senselessly because you did not get any fruits or benefits from your forefather. You will have to blame on your karma or your forefathers for not getting all the paths right for their off springs
    note its this kind of ppl say we complain so much. do u honestly believe it now?

    Stay in India for a month, you will learn how to protest against gament. How to conduct strikes with permission from Police and throw stones against the same police who approved ur strike request. But people has control over the gament. If gament do wrong they kick u out, which has pros and cons.
