A Picture Paints A Thousand Words ( And Such Sweet Words From Huat Ah!)
- There are thousands who do not mind getting wet and dirty to hear, to see, to feel.
- There are thousands who bother to show up and be counted
- There are thousands who feel that enough is enough
- There are thousands who want change
- There are thousands who fear no more
- To why PAP needs to free CPF (Medisafe, Medishield, Minimum Sum Scheme)
- To have a decent houses to live at a decent prices (HDB?)
- To make "Blue Sky Day" a way of life (not a political gimmick)
- To have a place in the train or bus without the unpleasant smelling of armpits
- To have Childcare and Infant Care made less expensive when grants of up to $30,000,000 are given only to PAP Childern Foundation and NTUC Childcare Co-operative
- To have a government that listens and act for the good of its citizens. Not one that says sorry just to win votes but does nothing to improve the lives of Singaporeans.
- 老天有眼 - Heaven Got Eyes! How the "Fruit Seller" turned against PAP
Of the thousands who turned up, I know not what they went home with. For me, the hours spent sitting on a muddied plastic mat listening and watching 'live' politicians speaking without fear of the sad state of affairs of a country we all love is worth the dirt and having to walk barefoot in the mud. To be in the moment when gems were spoken is priceless! The video above explains.
Silly as it may sound, I think Singaporeans are starved of the chance to gather; to demonstrate; to show unity; to exhibit their frustration, their helplessness to wake up an authority that has taken Singaporeans for granted for too long (words of Low Thia Khiang). An authority that can say sorry for messing up but after achieving its objective went back to its old ways to mess us up further.
An authority so dazed, confused and drunk by its power that any little challenge from anyone makes the authority lose the plot. Who can really understand why a 3-week-old PAP recruit is put forward as a candidate in a by-election? Worse, one who spend his last $11.50 counting and buying chopsticks in Toyogo. Hard t believe.
It is a pity that with the arsenal that they have, they cannot produce a more seasoned candidate? Ong Ye Khun (ministerial material?) would have been a good choice. Alas, conditions may not be right for him or has he joined George Yeo's "flow"?
Can this be the reason why Dr Chopsticks' rally have such a crowd?
