    Among the many PAP “do’s” Observer has listed, I like the following three best:

    One to alert the IRAS against the person asking for the light bulb to be changed.

    One to commence police investigations into documentarians and bloggers raising the light bulb issue.

    One to implement a ELP (Electronic Lighting Pricing) to tax on people who walk under the bulb.

    The first two look very familiar as I have heard from public gossips that such methods have been used against select political adversaries to signal them to lie low or flee the country, if they must.

    And LHL PM said his PAP government takes care of you Singaporeans you know.

    He the Ahsia Kia from cradle to now as PM3 established for him by his apapa with job for life. Is to ensure he will never be jobless after apapa is gone forever.

    And so with his life and career planed and established for him, can he know the reality sufferings of the lower 30% of Singaporeans? Let alone know the lower 15% or so struggling with ever increasing COL by him in the last 13 years? Talk is cheap!

But the later needs another one to clear the roots under the schedule of another one. Don’t ever forget that u need just as many to stay by with no portfolio just in case the active passive ones are decapacitated. Well it may prove disastrous if the bulb finally is changed for there are too many skeletons to idetify which would take millions man hours, so who stirs up the damn shits. It takes 1300 pages to nail a weasle do u want to chop down the whole world trees to explain what the jiatliaobi changing the bulb.

    Sadly, the list is not too far fetched. We are becoming the laughing stock of most part of the World now.
    Only territories which are far more authoritarian, more daft than us would look up to us for inspiration.

    The latest news about LTA and SMRT setting up a committee to look into “floods” is most comical.

    LOL! Light bulb jokes aside, when one read the foreign news & the various interesting paradigm articles written by interesting writers, one get *light bulbs* flashing & lighting up.
    Read Following Link:
    QUOTE: “There’s no corporate income tax, no personal income tax…and the regulatory environment is much easier to work with,” Nevada, a [Casino gaming] state that runs on gaming money rather than tax dollars.
    Why then does S’pore who has physical casinos as well as operating gaming stuff like 4-D, Toto & football betting need to collect as much tax monies from the poor overtaxed citizens & the public???
    “If housing costs continue to rise, we should expect to see more people leaving high-cost areas”
    [People] get addicted to the ‘large’ salaries they can earn in big cities…[but some begin to...] realize that the purchasing power of your income is far more important that the nominal dollars printed on the front of your paycheck. [Many] had just about enough of excessive home prices, unaffordable rents, crushing personal and corporate tax rates, overly burdensome regulations, polluted air, [congestion] etc. and are increasingly leaving for a better life. Doesn’t that sound familiar with S’pore?
    High price of homes is a harbinger of impending doom & economic collapse for the future. Smart people are looking for a ‘Better Life’ not being a Debt Serf to a physical asset for a large portion of their working life. If people leave a high cost area for a lower cost area, then whose going to buy those high priced homes? Have anyone really thought of that?
    Bring on those PAP IBs whose going to paint black my ‘light bulbs’ statements – re: negative ‘thumbs down’ ratings & one line dissing statements. Where are you Mr. Chameleon?

    Very true !

    Q1 – Are the current AristoCATs leading SG to be Smart? or,

    Q2 – Are the current AristoCATs lulling SG to chase the Cs with more debts?

    In 2008, there was another “Prince” who made the following statement –
    “But as long as the music is playing, you’ve got to get up and dance.
    We’re still dancing”
    Chuck Prince CEO of CitiGroup.
    In 2008 financial crisis, CitiGroup was saddled w bad loans –
    2006 market value $277b
    2009 market value $6b – very ouch !

  • Addition is not the solution:

    Read about KBW setting up a committee re avoiding flooding in’s news.
    Adding n adding more personnel is not the solution.
    Next they’ll set up anothet committee to find out why that new committee couldnt accomplish the task they were assigned to.
    Hilariously absurd.
    So who gonna pay all these committees that these jlbs are setting up all over the shop? Just squeeze more n more from the peasants?

    For now… yes. Those en-bloc owners from freehold condos/HUDC will be rushing in to find replacement homes by this year-end. Most are wary of Governmental interventions next year and developers are also taking stock. That’s the reason why the property market may seem robust & buoyant now. Next year we’ll see a real crunch when this ‘frantic pool’ is depleted.

  • NotMyProblem:

    @Observer; You have forgotten;

    Light bulb changing only happens once in every 50 years.

    Some light bulbs can only be changed if it is in the radius of 200M but not within 200M.

    When the same type of light bulb was used for 5 terms it would be decided by Parliament as to how to count the 5 terms. When filament bulbs were used for 5 terms and need to change to LED, half LED can be counted as filament. (Don’t ask me to explain please).

    If light bulb is to be changed by a minority race and reserved only for Malay, sometime an Indian can pretend to be Malay.

    When a light bulb was not working as it should be, like consuming too much power. It could be self declares there was nothing wrong with the light bulb and no abuse of power consumption.
