Young And Jobless Becoming Private Taxi Drivers

I took a number of Uber and Grab and recently found many young graduates from Polys and Universities, especially Polys. Alarmed that a number of them are actually ladies. I asked them why? They said they can’t find jobs, no choice to drive taxis better than working for those $7/hour part time jobs.

I remember our ministers a few years ago told Singaporeans not to study degrees because you can’t eat it. So today, they had proven correct that our graduates are driving taxis.

We are going at full steam towards 7M, where are the jobs? We have been aggressively importing and converting foreigners into PRs and new citizens. And these days, they can also come in on tourist visas and get jobs within weeks. I heard from friends they are usually referred by some of their country natives residing here. One foreigner brings one whole village is not a myth, its real.

Uncle Leong said the foreign import conversion in 2016/17 is being beefed up, so expect more and more imported. So how many Singaporeans will end up driving taxis?

I also found alarming number of aunties with bad driving skills. They said times are hard, things are so expensive, so had to help their husbands also. Is this the kind of life you expecting?

This is a country where foreigners get good jobs and locals end up as taxi drivers?

Our lives seem to be going worst and worst after GE. I remembered last GE 2015, these young people overwhelming voted the PAP. Is this what you have voted for? To drive taxis? Anyway, autonomous taxis will come after next GE, so how?

    Those 70% of Stinkies voted for PAP are loving it, no point KPKB, can only consider yourself “Suay” living with the 70% gutless Stinkies.

  • never voted pap:

    This is a country where foreigners get good jobs and locals end up as taxi drivers?

    we used to feel aggrieved when we read or hear of locals being supplanted by pap aliens, so called pap FTs.

    since last GE, however, we no longer even care if locals commit suicide. because they overwhelmingly, almost 70% to be clear, voted for it.

    actually nowadays we feel much better. because inside the 70% are some close family relatives. in times past, before last GE, we used to spend time talking to them about pap evil. but not only did what we say fall on deaf ears, sometimes ended up in close family relatives one not talking to the other.

    it is so silly, really. getting estranged because of pap. so we decided, being the elder, and more responsible, to never ever talk about pap evil again. even so, in our hearts, we no longer pity our family relatives, close family relatives, when they become jobless, drive taxis, have their homes repossessed. we do not even contribute a single cent to anything even though we could afford to do so.

    call is heartless. but, kindness sometimes may not be good for our close relatives, who belong to the stupid 70%, because our kindness shall lead to destruction for our own children, and children of the 30%.

    never voted pap. never will.

    The younger sgs must not succumb to lollies dangled out at them by the PAP using the SAME NATIONAL RESERVES that the PAP says must not be touched to give much needed assistance to older n jobless sgs as it wouldadd additional tax burden to the young voters in future?
    How hypocritical!

    Meanwhile, the PAP squanders our money on foreign kids n their failing companies which actually failedand we have to write off as bad investments?

    Each NATIONAL DAY broadcast,we hear PM Lee trying to lure the younger sgs with promises of lollies.
    Like this tear,he promises them mire child care benefits n child care centres.
    But will JOBLESS SGS whose jobs got robbed by PM Lee n handed to his beloved FTs be able to afford to send their kids to these centres?
    Probably,jobless young sgs will have so much FREE TIME instead to takecare of their own kids in their own “home child care centres” ?

    If the young refuse to acknowledge the hypocrisy of lee ah long,they are asking for their own doom n that of their children.

    No point lamenting. If these daft 70 and that includes the young never learn anything from GE 2015 and the upcoming PE, nothing else will.

    They will have themselves to blame if they can’t secure jobs after graduation.

    The Pioneer Generation had a faustian bargain with LKY. Almost absolute power given in return for growing prosperity for those who are prepared to strive. LKY’s power base rest on this inviolable contract.

    What have the hunger generation got from their leaders for their most fundamental need (Jobs based on meritocracy) ? It is one thing to have no jobs in the midst of economic downturn for the local tribe. It is another to be second class job seekers being marginalized as a tribe amidst economic immigrants (many fakes).

    LKY’s legacy has been mutated to an Aristocracy with its sycophants who are control freaks experimenting with failed and failing models. The younger generation deserves it as 70% who define them remains as cult worshippers. At least, the pioneer generation dare to risk building a real Nation for them and their forebears on core values expressed in the Pledge.

    MATE, HOW MANY IN PROPORTIONAL TERMS of this what PAPpy correctly calls “strawberry generation” dare venture out into unfamiliar foreign soil and discover a world and a future there? How many still rely on Baby Boomers to pay for downpayment for first home or car?

    Some of my generation ventured out nearly 40 years – the so-called “Quitters” – who made it good outside Sinkieland. They are NOT employed but financially independent. Some don’t want a job, don’t need a job and want to strive on their own.

    If the young strawberries have to find economic refuge in cab-driving and not daring to stand on their own feet (even with parental support of shelter and food if they failed) – THESE LOT ARE UTTER FAILURES.

    The world of change and competitive pressures will isolate them into oblivion because the strawberries NEVER got out of fortified bunkers or grow beyond mommy’s apron string of sheltered existence from the cradle to the grave.

    The Young [Millenials] were too complacent & too Politically Apathetic; their Parents were too “Kiasu” & “Kiasee” – constantly tell their children not to indulge in politics or else be like Roy Ngerng [kenna sue until his pants drop & got fired from his job], keep their heads down & “tak chek khiang” ie. study hard & do well in school. But S’pore’s Magic Formula doesn’t work any more in this Knowledge Economy. Blame it on the following:
    * a Propaganda rich eco-system selling PAP Bull-shit to their citizens;
    * a pro-govt MSM self-censoring themselves, feeding loads of pro-govt articles, refusing to engage in critical arguments & basically making an ass of themselves in the Media reporting space;
    * a Heavy-handed Govt whom comes down heavy of dissidents or even ordinary people who had voiced concerns [re: Author Catherine Lim];
    * a Govt who is working hard to keep themselves in power [fix the Opposition, fiddling the Elected Presidency] over managing the S’pore Economy for the Long-term;
    * too arrogant & proud in their set ways, SWF/GLC are failing in the market-place; the Meritocracy Policy & Educational System are out-of-sychn with the real world yet they think they have a monopoly over intelligence [sic!];
    * the PAP are feeding from their past glories, the present batch are Asset Stripping S’pore’s wealth ready to skip out once there’s no more left to mine!
    In the past, PMETs sometimes apply for a taxi license in case of retrenchment that comes along. These were people in their mid-to-late 40s or even early 50s when that happens. But look at the situation now, newly graduates straight directly to driving taxis or Uber/Grab. What does that tell you – that the job creation system in S’pore is failing big-time! Selling out S’poreans through preferring foreigners will not help the S’pore Economy. When things become bad, foreigners will be like LOCUSTS [term used by HongKoners to describe their Mainland brethrens] – flying off to another place to feed leaving behind a barren field. AND THAT’S THE TRUTH!
    The S’pore Property Market would be worth in cents PSF when that happens. S’pore has lost the ability to feed themselves in times of trouble unlike in the past! People need to wake up but alas, I think many are still trapped inside their limited minds [of the damage done by the PAP] & “bo-bian” attitude [lackadaisical] on things political! Sad!

    a very VALID observation that even ‘NEW GUARD PAPies’ commit.

    look, PM Lee keeps using NATIONAL RESERVES accumulated by older sgs whom he MADE JOBLESS via his FT POLICY over the past 15 years or so to attract younger sgs to vote for him by giving them LOLLIES bought with such past accumulated reserves in the first place?

    yet, PM LEE has got the stinking cheeks (look at his stupid grin) to tell younger (so called more educated sgs) that he cannot use such PAST ACCUMULATED RESERVES to help those older sgs who are jobless so as not to burden the younger sgs in future?

    and, YOUNG SG VOTERS ACCEPTED THE BLINKING FLAWED ARGUMENT N VOTED DAFTLY FOR HIM LAST GE?

    THE YOUNG, sorry to say,are extremely SELF-CENTERED N SELFISH AND CARE ONLY ABOUT THEIR OWNSELVES; many even told their parents that they(their parents) must ‘work till drop dead’ and not burden them (the young)????

    so you see, the PAP is applying ‘DIVIDE AND RULE’ not via race but even within the FAMILY????

    AND, THAT IS WHY BAD KARMA has fallen on PM LEE’s own famiLEE; THEY have been divided themselves, HE, PM LEE N HIS ‘MISTER’ against his own siblings n nephew.

    HEAVEN HAS EYES, even if from a far distance???

    BEWARE N STOP DOING EVIL.

    @ MadeInSin

    HONESTLY, if your thoughts expressed represents the mindset and reality perception of the strawberry generation – LEE-jia-pore will end for certainty faster than you can imagine in the your wildest fantasy now. The foreign influx as Tharman confessed is BOTH POLITICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY STUPID is mainly LOW-QUALITY infusion of passenger of convenience. Our immigration intake include PRC-only prostitutes, hawkers, casino workers given PR/citizenship for the purpose of vote banking fortifications. Welfare is supported only if vote baits is atttached. The economy is fiction of asset bubble fictions. Those who transformed Lee-jia-pore into what it is now is BABY BOOMER GENERATION – hardy, thriving and conquering of challenges BUT IN 10 YEARS OR LESS, most will extinct or at least irrelevant to Lee-jia-pore survival and future.

    What is left of your generation @MadeInSin? Straight from University to taxi driving? Earned not enough, mommy and daddy subsidize your standard of living by being your ATMs? Buy car, mommy pays 60%. All that you lot can think of now is this SIMPLE BANQUET-FOREVER-MENTALITY oblivious to the world and reality around you? Hunt for a life partner, BUY PROPERTY as first priority (get mommy and daddy to pay 50% of your mortgage) VOTE FOR PAPpy for imagined stability (and economic security by implied assumption) and pray to your PROPERTY GOD in heaven waiting to make a fortune on property investment all thanks to PAPpy’s asset enhancement politics promise (read scam).

    It is ALL GOOD LIFE MADE IN HEAVEN, right?

    Idiot! Mommy and Daddy won’t be around when economy turns, they got big healthcare bill unbudgetted for and feeding you, your partner and baby in hard times when not enough passengers ride your cab. In 10 years time, driverless car means your taxi driving career is over. So what does that mean?.

    TAXI DRIVING IS A LIFE-SHRINKING CAREER. Your contact and connection to the world is ALSO SHRANK to the size of the cabin of your cab – 4 ft by 4 ft in dimension of your WORLD, GLOBAL REACH, OPPORTUNITIES, AND INTERACTION with society. Your cab-driving career shrink your life from an 110 sg metre apartment to 4 ft by 4 ft of contact to the world where opportunities abound for foreigners who leaves this place when rotting corpses of the strawberry generation takes hold of revolting smell. So the redundant taxi driver apply for a job – at interview, the employer asked, do you know how to do coding? Strawberry ex-taxi driver says- never heard of this, what rubbish is this crab?

    CAN MOMMY/DADDY GONE TO TERN SUA help this SHRANK taxi-driver with career experience limited to his cab cabin size of interaction and experience?

    I KNOW OF ONE REALLIFE CASE ex-Sinkie Down Under – mommy/daddy left him nearly A$5 million in inheritance as their only son. Sheltered and no learning of the world as if it is heavenly made beauty of calm, serenity and no challenges, he went into business straight out of University degree in business. See the way he talked fresh out of uni – arrogant and swaggering. He failed in first outing, lost a huge chunk of it. Got married and reworked his life – ended in divorce after he failed his business again. But no sweat, he still got over 7-digit size net asset forget property (cheap in those days in Down Under), shopped for another young beautiful wife – easy to find gold-diggers when he flaunted his fast car, two apartments, eat out every meal. Divorced again, left with a few hundred thousands but no more apartment AFTER HIS BUSINESS FAILED AGAIN.

    When those around his circle of similar age retired, he is forced to find another business – because he got no work experience except being BOSS ordering people around arrogantly. His life experience is now reduce to all interactions within his car and his two employees in his small business. That didn’t take very long for that to go under too.

    Now he lives on aged pension, no super, NOT EVEN ENOUGH MONEY TO RENT A ROOM in a shared apartment, so BEG ANOTHER RICH friend’S RELATIVE to let him stay for free.

    THIS IS A TRUE LIFE STORY OF SHRINKING EXPERIENCE AND SHRINKING OPPORTUNITY.

    Anyone who speaks up for strawberry generation going from University to LIFE-SHRINKING taxi-driving had better WAKE UP – there is a VERY FAST EVOLVING AND DANGEROUS TURBULENCE outside his taxi-cabin and his life. INTERACT WITH THAT CHANGING WORLD, BE AWARE AND TRY TO RE-SHAPE IT IN A SMALL WAY, or you perish living a fantasy life of ‘BANQUET-LAST-FOREVER” mentality paid for by mommy and daddy JUST WON’T LAST – even if they leave you millions in your banking account.

    I met a lot of young PRCs Down Under including the girls without tertiary education – something of a common thread in their thinking flashed constantly in my mind of their mouth talking – the majority says something to this effect – IF YOU DON’T STAY AHEAD OF SOCIETY AND LET SOCIETY TAKES YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, YOU WILL DIE FASTER than you can imagine. In other words, if you are a PASSIVE FOLLOWER of society, you will left behind to rot and stink.

    Can the strawberry generation of LEE-jia-pore survive competing with 1.4 billion PRCs roaming and conquering the world?

    You decides!

    The biggest problem is not degree holders driving taxis, nor is it women driving taxis; neither is it the government nor the PAP.

    The biggest problem lies with the 60 to 70 percent of the voters who keep voting the government that screw their backsides again and again, election after election.

    Pain is good. The more pain the merrier. That’s why more and more gays are on the rise. People simply love to be screwed in the backside.

    Greed is good. The more greedy you are the more successful you are. That is why you find ministers manipulate the law to make themselves instant multi-millionaires overnight on a permanent basis for life, with 18 to 30 months secret bonuses and life-long pensions and first class free medical benefits to go with it.

    Evil is good. The more evil you are the more people fear you. That is why Donald Trump is escalating the Korean conflict with the threat of a Nuclear War to annihilate and destroy the world.

    pap cheats on employment statistics. we know of cases of true unemployment, no job, yet after a few years, these truly unemployed drop out of employment statistics, as if they no longer exist and don’t need a job anymore.

    the only puzzling thing is yet pap received more votes last GE. real surprising. maybe local born unemployed not large enough to matter at the polls? or too many new citizens boosting the pap percentage?

    but mark this. a new citizen will become old citizen very soon, especially when become jobless and have homes repossessed. sure will happen one since pap continues to import so called FTs by the tonnes month after month.

    Mate, thats what’s wrong with the Chinaman Mentality! – overprotective parents & unwilling to let their spawn suffer from the rigors & the harsh life of competition. But cocooning them with protective wealth which they never rightfully earn for themselves, kills them later in life.
    When one competes in the real cruel world, it is testament to your survival skills to adapt & prosper. When you don’t have margin for error, you minimize your risks & go for the big kill eg. payout is the greatest. That why skepticism & being cynical are good attributes to have in a world full of bullshit. Your mate had it easy early in life – too much money & never experienced a setback. But he also never learn from his experience – either still got too much money or damn bloody arrogant (or even both). Setbacks are what makes one’s character – you try & try again, never giving up. That’s why I see the PAP’s Meritocracy Policy, their lack of tolerance for failure, ingrained failure stigma for those who perservere but fall outside S’pore’s (PAP) perfect world – the ingredients for a societal failure down the road. Many S’poreans had it easy the last 4-5 decades.

This writer speaks in language of PRESENT DAY & consumptive behavior – nothing about the future risks, future shocks and adaptive survival and prosperity climb. Look at these words spoken – complexity of life struggle is REDUCED to this simplicity.

    MadeInSin: There is “peace”, schools, transport, shoppings and entertainment for amusement and there is food to keep your mouths and saliva busy.

    and then this reference to kids’mind and behavioural traits as relevant to striving and thriving in societal change and progress as if no need to grow up into the adult world

    MadeInSin: Singaporeans are satisfied( like happy and jumpy kindergarten children) and judging by the numbers at NDP every yea

    extending to this staggering projection of simplistic fixation

    MadeInSin: Singaporeans don’t think they are a stupid and a shallow breed. They think you are sore losers

    When you contrast them with PRC millennials, it is a DIFFERENT ORBIT of competitive maturity. They tell me that if you are not ahead of the rolling tide but trailing behind others – YOUR PROBLEM IS TOO MANY SWIMMING in front AHEAD OF YOU, blocking your pathway ahead, and in no time, you be, like them, totally exhausted, drowned and die.

    Those politically apathetic millennial Sinkies focused solely on today’s happy salivating consumption and jumping like monkeys of 5-yr old kids in kindergarten still asserting that they are not stupid and shallow?

    What gives huh – besides parasiting and be contented with living on mommy and daddy’s ATM for car and housing needs but otherwise be oblivious to challenges and the accelerating rate of change around them?

    Cab driving is LIFE SHRINKING of skill-set, knowledge and experience. Selling properties/life insurance is cockroach capitalism feeding on crumbs in society only in good times, only social skills required. It is life…

    @ Hacken

    I MET A NUMBER OF MALAYSIANS & one Sinkie staying in shared accommodation with them nearly 4 decades ago in Western Australia – this mob were students then in Universities Down Under. All turned up as “quitters” they never thought for one moment their lives would meander that way. Their parents must have thought they would be good sons, studied in Australian universities and on graduation to return back to Malaysia/Singapore to be home with their family.

    As fate would have it by chance or accident, they had found work experiences during their University’s summer vacation in mining entities working in remote Australia as laborer or trade assistant working for BHP, Conzinc Riotinto Australia (now Rio Tinto), Woodside Petroleum etc etc.

    Along that pathway, they cultivated an affinity to the mining world, and this was the outcome

    - one became a engineering contractor at Port Hedland for BHP

    - one became a parts supplier/labor contractor on an off-shore oil rig for Woodside Petroleum

    - one became a spare parts supplier for underground mining equipment in the gold-mining sector

    - another one tie with with an Australian miner exploring and even got a gold exploration entity listed on the Australian stock exchange.

    I have lost contact with them – the last time I saw them was more than 30 years ago and they obviously happy and successful.

    If they had no work exposure in mining sector during their students’days, none of these people mentioned above would have become self-employed entrepreneurs in Australia – they would have probably returned to Malaysia and Singapore to work as engineers or accountants in employed roles, most probably.

    The moral of the story is IF YOU DON’T QUIT FAMILIAR ENVIRONMENT, YOU HAVE NO OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIMENT AND EXPERIENCE NEW OPPORTUNITIES.

    If I have NOT been a quitter nearly 40 years ago, met these Malaysian/Sinkie students and visited mining camps in remote Australia, I would have NO INTEREST or cultivate an affinity of interest in mining – IT CHANGED MY LIFE forever.

    @ Hacken

    TAKE A LOOK AT THE LIFE CHANGING BACKGROUND of some of the wealthiest mining entrepreneurs – they are staggering of how they shift their life frontier of experiences before making monumental success.

    Here is one – Kerry Harmanis – ex-lawyer, fishmonger before investing in mining industry. He sold his 16% stake in Jubilee Mines for A$500 million.

    “The deal cystallised Harmanis’s near 16 per cent stake at almost $500 million, taking the 59-year-old a long way from the fish van he operated on the beach in Perth more than 20 years ago when he had to earn cash to live on while prospecting.”

    http://www.news.com.au/finance/markets/millionaires-with-rocks-in-their-heads/news-story/30755c68faddbf22e63c285acf2a5680

    Another one is Terry Streeter. His stake in a West Australian nicker miner – Western Areas was worth $53 million in 2013. His life started of as a vegetable hand in a green grocer shop – maybe getting paid a few dollars a day in those days.

    “TERRY Streeter made his first fortune by getting out of bed at 2am each day to sell fruit and vegetables before returning to his real love — mining — and hitting the jackpot through the $3.1 billion sale of Jubilee Mines in 2007.”

    Notice how Terry Streeter met with Kerry Harmanis who both invested in mining prospecting and discovered the Cosmos nickel deposit through Jubilee Mines and strike it rich to high heaven.

    THESE ARE MILLIONAIRES LITERALLY WITH ROCKS IN THEIR HEADS.

    I suspect those Malaysian/Sinkie students who are quitters deserting homes to become enterpreneurs instead of being in employed roles ALSO MUST HAVE ROCKS IN THEIR HEADS instead of engineering formulas and accounting debits and credit computations.

    part 1.

    To oxygen and “never voted PAP” and “trust only myself.”
    I read all the posts here.

    I swear by my 5 phrases here. No way the 30% can disagree with me here.
    ________________________________________________________________

    1) The traits of the 70%: SHALLOW, GUTLESS, COMPLACENT and DEBT RIDDEN.

    2) I will savor and relish when all the DEBTS, DIVORCES, DEPRESSION, DESTITUTIONS AND DEATHS progressively and ultimately overwhelm the 70% PAP voters.

    3) Because the 70% are WAY TOO STUPID to not even realise that they are THAT STUPID.

    4) Election who you voted for? This is what you voted for. You pay for what you voted for. PAY!!!

    5) Too comfortable for too long.

    _____________________________________________________________

    I also got close relatives-fervent supporters of PAP. I notice that they tend come from civil service or ex-civil servant for a long time. Spouses included.

    Getting estranged….very true. My this circle of relatives….even got special needs son even. Very pro PAP. Because the sibling (high ranking civil servant) financially support them. During CNY, I simply wear masks. But behind the mask hides an overwhelming desire to see them collapse into the 5Ds I mentioned above.

    One simple way to identify them….check their facebook account… see if they LIKED that abhorrent cancer boy.

    Just look after yourself and your own families. Fukk the rest of them!!!!

    Those fukktards all voted for PAP in GE2015, simply because of herd mentality. LKY demise and SG50 (massive babies being born). A new additional to the family always brings about a certain climate of instability and uncertainty, causing these fukking idiots to vote for PAP. I’d say, Fukk them if they and their SG50 babies starve to death.

    Part 2

    I am not in a position to interview potential employees yet. May never reach that position. But I think to myself, if there is a way you can determine who the candidate voted for, during the interview session itself, that would be a huge diamond mine with my name on it.

    Not only the younger generations, (born in 80s-90s). It’s their parents also (born in 50/60s).
    Many of these grow during the nation’s formative years. Jobs plenty. Admission into NUS/NTU is as easy as entering a fast food outlet.

    70% happy simply because what material assets they have are just financed by DEBTS!!!! That’s why its called DEBT-RIDDEN and DEBT FUELLED FALSE PROSPERITY.

    Someone mentioned: The S’pore Property Market would be worth in cents PSF when that happens
    I have been waiting and praying for this to happen. A complete property meltdown dwarfing that of the Asian currency crisis in 97 and the US subprime and Greece’s bankruptcy. That will bring about the 5Ds for me to relish and to share with the 30%.

    My personal real life cases…
    1) 2 years ago, a colleague, 30 years old, driving a 9-10 year old car. Saying to me: even if she lost her job, she always got her mummy and daddy, and looking at me with that grin which implies:” see? I have my mummy and daddy, you got nothing to fall back on. Hmmmp!.”

    2) Fren’s office colleague, ppl can even buy Rolex watch on 48months instalment. Walk inside the office with his prada wallet, car key, rolex watch, latest iphone and even mentioned intentionally to let my fren (male) overhear : “my car only fetch skirts.”

    3) Did some part-time job. Met a mechanical engineer graduate from NUS at BBDC. Was a factory manager for HP. They made him set up a factory in Philippines, run the place to perfection then got rid of him. He was born in 1971. Married with 1 daughter. Jobless for long time.

    Asked him what was he doing in BBDC, told me learn driving. Let’s look at that again… learn driving?? At 44 years old??? You mean he has no desire to own car during the good days?? Took me a while to ponder the real reason. BBDC offers Taxi vocational license!!!!.

    He is one of those, I ask him: election who you voted for. He gazed at me and kept quiet and looked into the distance. You can guess the answer.

    @ Rabble-rouser

    THIS IS PRECISELY WHAT MOST SINKIES LACK – the questioning of status quo/dare to be different EVEN ATTACKING THOSE WHO DARE CHALLENGE ESTABLISHMENT, leaving behind their “safe” fortified bunker of caterpillar mentality.

    Most don’t understand this reality – if you dare not walk in the moonlight of darkness surrounding, HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY BE THE FIRST TO SEE SUNRISE and EXPLOIT OPPORTUNITIES before the rest of the world wakes up and compete with you?

    That is precisely why when PAPpys flooded in cheap foreigners with dubious qualification and work credentials, the locals got washed out by this tsunami to drowning deaths in the ocean of their own weak competitive maturity. One blogger @ Dugu Quibai, lamented often in TRE that retrenched PMETs taxi drivers often lambasted him/her with this stupid SELF-LOATHING retort when asked if they voted for opposition politics – “WHAT CAN OPPOSITION DO FOR ME?”

    Well, these ex-PMET taxi drivers can continue to vote for PAPpys – UBER & GRABCAR drivers will, in turn, vote these mob of ex-PMETs out the last career leg of taxi driving, and no more option to return to their professional field even in lower hierarchical positions BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO LONG OUT OF THEIR PROFESSION.

    This is exactly how shallow and stupid our brand of ex-PMETs are – party on in good times of consumptive behavior jumping around like kindergarten kids presuming that their banquets last forever and be oblivious to whatever is happening around them until thunder and lightning hit them twice in succession – first retrenched from their PMET job, then retrenched by technology in the taxi driving career.

    HOW TO BE SORRY FOR THIS LOT OF FAILED ZOMBIES WHO CLOSED THEIR ESCAPE ROUTE BY THEIR OWN OBLIVIOUS INATTENTION to shifting turbulent environment that engulf their own life, society and their own country’s survival?

    This is exactly the mindset advocated by @ MadeInSin.

    DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR THEM.

    Rabble-rouser: @ oxygen:
    Mate, thats what’s wrong with the Chinaman Mentality! – overprotective parents & unwilling to let their spawn suffer from the rigors & the harsh life of competition. But cocooning them with protective wealth which they never rightfully earn for themselves, kills them later in life.
    When one competes in the real cruel world, it is testament to your survival skills to adapt & prosper. When you don’t have margin for error, you minimize your risks & go for the big kill eg. payout is the greatest.

    THOSE MALAYSIAN/SINKIE MINING INDUSTRY-RELATED ENTREPRENEURS were very young in their career when they struck out on their own – mid-twenties to late twenties and they come from ordinary peasant households. What set them on that pathway they took? The left home for DIFFERENT horizon on education pursuits, probe and push new frontiers in mining space in their life experiences, and decided to “walk the moonlight surrounded by the darkness of unknown and unfamiliar. Fortunately, they hit the jackpot at sunrise – there was a mining boom waiting for them but unknown to them when they ventured out.

    I could have gone a DIFFERENT TRACK but not an affinity to mining space. Met a Hongkie – another “QUITTER” of derogatory slam so to speak if that comes from the mouth those mentally weak, stupid and shallow abusers. He was a ‘FONGIE” in aboriginal slap of Chinese – from Darwin. In those days, Chinese in Darwin has to come from mainly two surname – Chin or Fong. So to natives, you are either a Chinny or Fongie. Guess what? He has good long established relationship with prominent aboriginals. Theis FONGIE and his aboriginal mates took me to isolated terrain – we saw huge crawling crabs. Fongie thought it was a brilliant idea if we entered into a business partnership literally harvesting crabs for export to wealthy metropolis like Singapore and Hong Kong. He can organize fishery licence. The biggest insurmountable is labor supply. I worked among aboriginals – natives don’t want to work regular hours – they wants to drink under tree shades. Derby, Karratha, Port Hedland are only domestic airports – no route to outside world except through Perth. That means frozen crab trucked all the way to Perth before they can be airfreighted out to hungry Singapore/Hong Kong – capital intensive.How to locate a venture capitalist to start-up. I figure it is not easy, and declined the opportunity. If I had the money to risk this endeavor then, I might have gone into frozen Australian seafood business and stuck in Perth for better or worst.

    The moral of this life journey is that – IF YOU DON’T VENTURE OUT and be damned as a “quitter”, you really have “quit” living your life – exactly in opposite direction, ironically. Quitters will fail sometimes, but in those failings there is sown success opportunities as well. You choose your destiny, not your destiny choose you. In all finality – it boils down to this – IN LIFE, YOU MUST MAKE CHOICES WITHIN CONSTRAINTS and these constraints will delimit your choices forward. What is the alternative of sitting in your fortified bunker? You got imprisoned by your bunker and constraints from cradle to grave – stupid and shallow enough yet?

    PAPpys from time immemorial keeps reminding Sinkies – don’t rock the boat. Or else! They pressed that on two assumptions – PAPpys have a monopoly of wisdom and Sinkieland has no natural resources. PAST TENSE even boasted that he will come back from TERN SUA to fix Sinkieland up if something gone wrong. PRESENT TENSE told the nation in 2015 – our economy MAXED OUT, in 2016, restructuring failed and in 2017, the Committee for Future Economy practically tell us that they are CLUELESS of the way forward and DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

    So did PAST TENSE came back to fix the economy and the drama evolution in Lee-jia-pore in the recent months?

    We are stuck!!

    Is it because we lacked natural resources and have no choices within constraints of geography and geology? Ask those Malaysian/Sinkie entrepreneurs who start-up their mining-related business Down Under.

    How come Sinkieland never bought controlling or substantial stakes in Australian or Canadian mining entities or Singapore Petroleum continued to engage in oil and gas exploration in regional waters instead of selling it to China Petroleum? It is rubbish talking from PAPpy – the cave man mentality hiding in fortified bunker living like caterpillars afraid to venture out. And damming Sinkie who dare new frontiers as “quitters”. Now those “stayers” are trapped by PAPpys monopoly of fake wisdom. Or am I wrong again?

    And when our SWF started investing in the natural resources domain – IT IS RIGHT AT THE ALL TIME PEAK OF COMMODITIES PRICES in 2011 to 2012- they bought duds and no winners. And now they gone silent. Cave man not rocking the boat learns nothing about survival in turbulent seas, never to acquire new tools and skills – the moment they step out stupid, they got slaughtered.

    But that doesn’t stop them from bashing dissenting thoughts. How to progress the nation in the face of backward looking authoritarian rule in the face of staggering evidences of policy mistakes and failures? Instead of engaging disagreeing minds, they whacked harder, even on kids. They restrict their choices to change and adaptation to exploring new directions.

    Is there any hope left for LEE-jia-pore? I wait and see in glum of despair.

    Our peasants are reduced to a mob of taxi-driving, life insurance sales, real estate sales – all life shrinking career and opportunities. The tech sector will move out as energy costs falls in US, 3D printing technology requires less skilled industrial labor. The Chinese will go high tech too whereever they can after they survive and prosper by selling labor productivity gains by pricing cheaper durable goods like i-phone to US & global consumers – squeezing out all global competition.

    I don’t know what PRESENT TENSE will speak on this coming NDP rally. I hope it is not national moaning of PAPpys’ electioneering propaganda of elected presidency in which the ONLY FONT of excluded competition is race, instead of role-relevant skills set, tragically.

    I see too much complacency in our millennials – seemingly oblivious to the escalating anti-social behavior public space. It is societal anomie of social disintegration brought mainly by collapsing economic structure and what this brings. PAPpys are silent, pretending nothing is happening. What is the truth?

    Societal anomie is turbulence field born out of economic turbulence unresolved or irresolvable. It will only get worst for LEE-jia-pore as struggling peasants is reduced to debris tossed in the whirlwind of tornado spin sweeping through the economic landscape. In the best of circumstances, technology will shift offshore crushing manufacturing. The GIG economy and fintech sweeps out skilled services sector. Our economy is based on asset bubbles which can only float on strength of economy which is sinking fast. How can a nation survive after it is reduced to SHRINKING SKILLS and job security of taxi-driving, food delivery,insurance sales, real estate services, rent collecting of soon to be vacant accommodation in what is left of now?

US govt debt is reaching US$19 TRILLION & climbing. Would you lend money to a debtor whose indebtedness keeps exploding and charge him the same interest rate?

    Me thinks US interest rate will rise, suddenly, very fast as Greenspan warned. US$ falling, rising gold and copper are inflationary risks escalating.

The first penny in foundation of a car and house is NOT EARNED by them – they are TOTALLY OBLIVIOUS to this fact. If you ever confront them of their grandpa or grandma’s hardship that raised the Baby Boomer generation – you should not be surprise to hear this from the millennial/Gen Y caterpillars – I wasn’t born then, I don’t know how hard grandpa and grandma lives in (frugality) and I don’t need to know now… to be continued.

    PAP would not help u, rather shortchanged u big time in CPF,and PUB charges,healthcare etc,etc.
    A mercilessly gagment ,dont deserve your vote.
    All u hear and read daily are propagandas……if u research deeply.
    U have no brain to think at all, u are dumb robot its and can be easily bullied by foreigners and the gagment of the day.
    No wonder foreigners say Singaporeans are stupid,naive, gullible.
