A Happily (Un)Married Weekend

As the year draws to a close, I thought it would be a good idea to log how an unmarried, confirmed bachelor spends his weekend.
What follows is an account of an actual weekend for me. Events will, of course, vary accordingly, as in this recorded example, my best friend paid me a visit.

11:25am -Wake up late after deciding to make good on a sleep-deprived week. Lie in luxuriously while the cats frot themselves all over me in a playful attempt to get "Daddy" out of bed.
11:30am -Give in to the cats, get up, shower, then feed and cuddle them.
11:50am -Look in fridge for breakfast food. Decide that brunch is a better option. Fry up bacon hock, hash patties, 2 tomatoes, 2 eggs, black pudding and 2 slices of bread slathered with butter. One pot of tea and 15 minutes later, I'm tucking in. (Note: how many women toting "grrrrrrrl power" today can even cook? I am told they are capable of burning a TV dinner!)
1:30pm -Go to nearby hypermarket to load up. I'll be very busy teaching in the new year, so it makes sense to load up on necessary items and convenience stuff like pre-baked lasagna and pizza. Since I won't be venturing out much, I do need to eat!
3:30pm -Familiar footsteps outside my door heralds the arrival of Craig, my best friend and fellow MGTOW. He wants a Dungeons & Dragons challenge but most of our regular "gang" are either overseas or busy with projects. We end up with the Scrabble board instead along with a barrel-load of laughs.
5:30pm -A horrified look at the clock reveals its too late for tea but too early for dinner. I raid the fridge and quickly whip up sandwiches, scones dripping cream and jam, and a steaming pot of tea. We sit down to an English tradition - "high tea" while the cats nuzzle my legs, hoping not for a bite but for some more love!
8:00pm -We are sitting in my favourite restaurant - Oriole's - for dinner. Craig has forbidden me to cook and has taken me out instead.
11:00pm -I'm soaking in the tub, wineglass in hand, Charpentier playing in the background and Leo, my oldest cat affectionately perched atop the water closet so he can be as near to me as possible but not get splashed!
11:30pm -I've hauled myself out of the tub, dried, dressed and curled up in bed with the latest installment in The Wheel of Time series. Leo is snuggled against my hip, purring like an off-grist mill wheel. We're both happy campers and I'll probably read until I fall asleep to the gentle vibrations of my purring cat.

Does that sound like a "happily married man" to you? If you equate "happily married" to being tied to a shrill-voiced harpy who pressurizes you into doing things because SHE wants it; the endless honey-do lists; the bills, mostly her bills; that is; the demise of time with your buddies; the demise of your own free time and space; the death of sex ... then you are "happily married" indeed!
Me, I chose the"road less travelled", the MGTOW path, and never looked back.
I've lived my life like that of the world's shortest fairytale (published below) and I'm much better for it.

(By the way, thanks to MarkyMark for this gem of a tale!)
Onward to 2011!

Assange accusers named -HERE!

I am going to do my part in the war against feminism even though its months late.
I take the stance that it better late than never. Or worse, die regretting that never.

Here I am naming (and shaming) the two wimminz who trumped up fake sex accusations against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The two LIARS are Anna Ardin (a.k.a Bernardin) and Sofia Wilén. Here are their smirking mugs for all to loathe:

Quoted from The Spearhead:
Feminist Anna Ardin and accomplice Sofia Wilén, his accusers, met each other after both had slept with Assange within a short timeframe, and they subsequently joined forces to jointly accuse him of rape.
There is a lot of background on Anna Ardin, who is not only a feminist ideologue who has made sexual harassment accusations against her students at the University of Uppsala for not paying attention to her, but apparently was also involved in some intrigues in Cuba, from which she was expelled for her association with a right-wing feminist group. As for Sofia Wilén, she appears to be a young, aspiring photographer, a little odd, and perhaps suggestible, as it was apparently Ardin who convinced her to go to the police (original article with comments here).

From The False Rape Society comes this:
Anna Ardin, a notorious radical known in Sweden for her feminism views on how men achieve social dominance through sex, has been known to be bent on revenge. On January Ardin posted a blog entry on ‘7 Steps to Legal Revenge by Anna Ardin’, which included a statement, I’ve been thinking about some revenge over the last few days… An article on the blog can be read here - .
It is also noted that this is not the first time Ardin has accused someone for molestation of a sexual nature in Sweden.
Ardin invited Assange to Stockholm, and was briefly appointed his press secretary during his visit.
The story begins the weekend of August 15. Assange wanted to attend a Swedish crayfish party, Ardin made the arrangements.
According to the Swedish newspaper Expressen, Assange sexually harassed a woman (Ardin) in Stockholm then two or three days later traveled 20km to Enköping where he supposedly raped another woman (Ardin’s friend). The Expressen concludes by an astonishing coincidence, the two women were friends. They decided a week later to go to a police station together saying that “Assange raped and harassed us” (original article with comments here).

And on Sofia Wilen (emphasis follows original article's):
[...] the stalkerish groupie who slept with Assange but got mad at him after he turned out to be an inattentive geek. There are a bunch of articles confirming Wilén’s involvement in the case, including her friendship with Assange’s other accuser, the psychotic feminist Anna Ardin. [...]
The charges against Julian Assange were indeed trumped up. Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilén planned it all. They went to the police station asking for advice, knowing the police would turn it into an accusation of rape. They’re also the ones who leaked the story to the tabloid Expressen. [...]
Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilén approached the Klara police station in Stockholm on the afternoon of Friday 20 August 2010 to ask questions of the police, purportedly about forcing someone to submit to STD/HIV tests.
The policemen on duty rang up prosecutor on duty Maria Kjellstrand even before the formal interrogation had begun. Kjellstrand - working with no paperwork at all at this point – issued an ‘APB’ for Assange and had the police search the Stureplan district of Stockholm for Assange, ostensibly to bring him in for questioning (and a tour of Swedish isolation cells).
The formal interrogation of Sofia Wilén was only concluded hours later and the interrogation of Anna Ardin didn’t take place until the day after - by telephone.
As seen from Anna Ardin’s SMS history, Anna Ardin and Sofia Wilén made the whole thing up - and even decided to leak the story to notorious Swedish tabloid Expressen. The story reached Niklas Svensson and others at Expressen at 19:52.
A colleague of Svensson’s rang up Maria Kjellstrand to find out if the story was true - and Kjellstrand, violating the rules of her office, told the reporter that it was (original articles here and here).

So it is VERY clear - Julian Assange's accusers are OUTRIGHT LIARS! THEY MUST BE EXPOSED FOR WHAT THEY ARE - LIARS (apologies for screaming but this has to come across as strongly as possible!).

Other blogs have already named and shamed these fine examples of ordure - The False Rape Society, The Spearhead, In Mala Fide to name but a few. I am climbing on the bandwagon albeit late, but I still feel I must do my part. Please link to the sites/blogs, visit them as often as you can, donate if you can, and spread the word!

Blessed Christmas 2010

My, how the time flies - where does it go?
Its Christmas 2010, and even though I've not put a new post in 4 months, I'm neither dead nor gone!
I'll be back in the new year with new writings.
Look out for more anti-fem vitriol from me.
I can't speak for my brother men in general but I do speak for myself. And me, I've had enough.
But that's in 2011 - still a week away.
Meanwhile, here's a Blessed Christmas to all my brother men and MGTOWs.

Lone Nut -Alternative Father Figures

The Lone Nut are back after their extended vacation to Europe (and may I add, funnier than ever!)
They've also decided to release two episodes a week instead of one - YAY!
I'm also back after a long period of coping with crazy trainers and a crazier schedule.

Stupid Bitch

I couldn't resist this when I spotted it on The Spearhead - Sexual Harassment Suit Backfires on California Woman. You can read the original here too.

Alison Moreno thought she had it all cushied up when she brought a sexual harassment suit against her former employer only to have it backfire, have a jury severely chastise her, and face a $1.55 million defamation counter-suit. YOU GO GRRRL!

This tidbit gives me hope that the tide is turning and the fembots are waking up to the ugly realization that the noose is tightening on them daily.

We must continue to work and till the land my brother MRAs!

And by the way, I haven't disappeared into the woodwork nor gone ghost - just up to my eyeballs in work. I'll be back when summer's over.

Lone Nut: Weekend-Father's Day

To quote a line from a poplar musical (Kismet) - "Princes come, princes go, but only the sands of time will know". And as surely as the sands of time shift, comes the realization that mothers, dictates and governments can never replace fathers.

Happy (belated -my PC's display went on the blink last week!) Father's Day!

The Face of an Abuser

This is 21-year-old Malorie A. Crisp of Boise, Idaho.

She was arrested on felony battery charges yesterday after beating a man with a cane. Before or during the beating, Ms. Crisp attempted to disable the man’s telephone to prevent him from calling the police.

Given that the man was beaten with a cane, it is likely that he was elderly or disabled and Ms. Crisp seized his cane in order to give him a more severe beating.

According to women’s groups, abusers like Malorie Crisp do not exist, because domestic violence is all about perpetuating the patriarchy. Therefore, when a woman assaults a member of “the patriarchy”, it cannot possibly be domestic violence. Note how the article states that she was arrested for “aggravated battery,” whereas if it were a man arrested during a “domestic dispute” the police report would have indicated “domestic violence.” This is one method by which domestic violence rates are skewed to make it appear that women do not perpetrate domestic violence.
(Quoted from The Spearhead)

All I can say is - LIES! LIES! LIES!
If you even think that women are virginal creatures to be placed on a pedestal - THINK AGAIN! AND THINK HARD!
Never ever trust or get near to any modern woman.
You'll be happier, saner and richer if you don't.

Lone Nut -The Nature of Conflict

This is the latest in the ongoing syndicated strip I'm helping to publicize, and its one of the funniest by far.

"The world will be so much more peaceful when we end religion." That is a quote I have heard a lot of lately and its appeared on the Lone Nut site too.

I guess that religion serves different ideals to different groups of people, and when those ideals clash with intolerance not far behind ... well, you get the drift.

Lone Nut -The Thought Crime Comic

Saturday, June 12, 2010


Jessica Joe of Oakland University thought it a grand idea to accuse two strangers of rape to get attention and support from her boyfriend.

According to police reports, Joe claimed that on April 24, as she was walking out of the CVS Pharmacy at Adams and Walton, she was grabbed by two men and dragged into a van parked next to her car. She told police that the men pulled her clothing off and one man drove around, while the other man raped her and was eventually pushed out of the van in the lot, according to the sheriff’s office. Although she claimed she struggled and fought to get away, police could find neither marks or bruises on her body.

A check with the store’s entrance videotape showed that Joe was never entered or left the store. Furthermore, CVS employees declared no one fitting her description had been in the store.

It is now clear that Joe will face felony charges. Whether she is convicted will depend on the strength of her P-Pass.

But what truly infuriates me is Sheriff Michael Bouchard himself. when he bleats out the tired old axiom: "When someone falsely claims a kidnapping and sexual assault it makes it that much harder on real assault victims and wastes precious police resources.' As several commentators over at FRS have stated, what about the men whose lives will be ruined by her petty whims, especially if her descriptions matched an actual, innocent man? At least she was named and we have a photo of her, while the men were not.

That is why anonymity is now paramount in a society where political correctness has run amok. So run over to the site and sign this Petition Supporting Anonymity NOW! And if you can, give them some money too. I did and its all for a good cause.

Marry me and die

The name of this swine is Arelisha Bridges - a cow who claimed she was unemployed but was actually a registered lobbyist for a group fighting domestic  violence. (Read the original article here.)

The irony? She killed her own husband five days after their wedding.

And what are the chances of her being convicted to serve time? Nada because for certain the P-Pass will reign supreme here. Already her lawyers are claiming she was abused in the course of that short relationship (!!)

This is an object lesson for men, not just men in their late twenties - the age of her deceased husband - but all men, as to the rewards that bowing to societal pressure and marrying will do to you. As The Spearhead itself puts it so succintly: "’s safe to say, a 26 year old man marrying a 45 year old feminist activist was a relationship destined to end badly".

Even in the comments the fact that she was a cougar feminasty was evident, with one commentator, going by the name of mgtow saying "Young men, older men all need to take note of this. These are unusual times, and you do not need ‘commitment’ or the sharing of living space to get poon. In fact, I guarantee you that you will be healthier, happier, safer and richer when you lay women without the excess garbage restrictions and baggage, such as sharing living space(no DV, no defacto, no joint bank accounts) or being subject to marriage contract law(no in-laws, no alimony, no child support if you guard your sperm supply). Of course it’s best if you can do without sex. But if you carnally fratenize with women, it’s in your best interest to see them less than adult human beings and more as pieces of meat for your enjoyment. Never be ensnared by that biochemical reaction in your mind you like to call ‘love’."

In that same thread, Rebel says it best: "If we can wake-up enough men about their situation, they might make the changes they need to make: for instance, ban marriage forever from their lives and leave women to their own designs."

I couldn't agree more!

This is their first departure from anti-feminist matters.
Viva La Raza literally means "long live the people (and race)", used by the peoples of Mexican or Chicano descent during the long battles for their liberation in the 60s and 70s. It was also the rallying cry of one of Latin America's greatest professional wrestlers - Eddie Guerrero.

The Lone Nut - Coins Have Two Sides

I found this over at The Spearhead where I go to get my fix and kicks.
Its a comic strip by a pair of cartoonists - Carl Walch and Patrick Roberts.
This is the pilot and I'll help to run this much like a syndicated strip.

Enjoy! And give Patrick some support too - The Lone Nut.

Feminasty Ridicule -1

After searching The Spearhead high and low for the source of the joke, I find that I cannot locate it, even though I was positive that I saw/read it there. Well, my aging eyes must be playing tricks on me.

Therefore, I'm canning this series and my own pathetic attempts at humour.

Thank you so very much Chef Snark for pointing out my glaring omission at failing to credit, but regretfully I must return the joke to the custody of his culinary majesty, the original owner.

A new vocabulary is birthed

Reading the pages of The Spearhead, I am always amazed at the amount of new stuff and ideologies one can learn.

Today was a locus classicus - I learned some new words to infuriate the feminists:
  • fembot - hardcore female supremacist with a punitive interest in men
  • femorrhoid - a female asshole, and a very sore one too
  • feminazi - like a fembot but spouts predictable and completely brain-dead verbiage
  • feminidiots - total lack of understanding of words
  • feminasty - self explanatory
  • femcunt - see "femorrhoid" above
  • fembitch - fat and hideous version of fembot and/or feminazi
  • femitard - retarded and/or stupid feminist
  • femislut - self explanatory
At the end of the day, no word coined in recent years can match the words of yore. I'm thinking of words like "cow" and "sow", Anglo-Saxon words that are innocuous yet carry a wonderful tang when used in the right context.

Try them and see. You'll enjoy using the old-fashioned phrases, especially since they are so rarely heard these days as to become deadly. For my part, I'm going to try using a word I picked up from the comments section in The Spearhead - "rogure" (to have sex with, a colonial form of the word "roger").

Have fun!

Stupid Bitch!

This is Eve Ensler.
For those of you unaware of her identity, rest assured you're not better off knowing it.
Muzz Ensler is a rabid feminist who recently felt the need to engender sympathy for the feminist cause by going on the Tavis Smiley show and producing a good semblance of mea culpa.
You can watch the interview here if you like -remember to have your vomit bowl handy though!

YOU"RE A PIECE OF SHIT as far as I'm concerned.
I think this comment by Paradoxotaur sums it up best: "She's uglier on the inside than she is on the outside."

Even the slugs are higher than feminists.
And Eve Ensler is about as appealing as a squashed cockroach, or maybe canine turds.

Lying Skank

This is Biurny Peguero Gonzalez.

Gonzalez is a single mother who has admitted to lying in court to convict an innocent man of rape. She was sentenced to 1-3 years in prison by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon, who has apparently decided to live up to his name. Gonzalez originally lied to placate her friends, who were upset that she had ditched them to accept a ride from her victim, William McCaffrey. [quoted from The Spearhead]

While the MRA circles are lauding the fact that "the wheels are beginning to turn", I voice caution.
Yes, the wheels are turning in that she was given a custodial sentence. BUT with a sentence of only 1-3 years, she will be eligible for parole in less than a year, which means she will have spent a minimal of jail time. Quite in contrast to Mr. McCaffrey who languished in jail for 4 years.

Even worse, where is the mention of compensation for the lost years the man spent in jail at the behest of her lie? Not a single word. The media had a field day with the naming and shaming of the man, but when its comes to payback time, they're blessedly silent.

That is why I will soldier on, in my little corner of the world, here in tropical Singapore, to name and shame these liars. That is the least of what they deserve.

Maybe she'll get it the next time around.
If at all.

The Feminist Scorecard -IV

I was skimming some of the Feminist drivel (hey, its better to know the devil who haunts you!) across the Lunar New Year holidays when I came across this absolute gem over at Renew America. In it, it postulates the finding that feminists are a ragtag group of retards, incapable of logic and/or rationalization.

This is nothing new -I came to that same conclusion a long time ago. Writer Charlotte Allen at Harry's News, a subset of Angry Harry pontificates: "Where are the women thinkers?" Which set me to thinking. If women are better than men (as they never fail to to remind us), then they should excel in the one area where cerebral power determines whether you make or break. That area is Philosophy.

Excited, I fired up Google and embarked on a search for female philosophers. Here's what I came up with - the leading philosophers are all, without a single exception, male (Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Maimonides, Peter Abelard, Roger Bacon, Thomas Aquinas, Gilbert of Poitiers, Confucius, Willian Ockham, Niccolo Machiavelli, Erasmus, John Locke, Rene Descartes, Jean-Jaques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, Arthur Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Søren Kierkegaard, Karl Marx, Bertrand Russell, Blaise Pascal, William James, George Santayana, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, Michael Foucault, et al). The list of philosophers runs to several pages, classified by subject area and all male.

What about the list of female philosophers? One (count 'em folks! ONE) page! And of that list, I only recognized Simone de Beauvoir (a wobbly writer, known more her novels), George Eliot (female novelist by the name of Mary Anne Evans), Heloise (Peter Abelard's student and wife), Hildegard of Bingen, Iris Murdoch (novelist), Ayn Rand (novelist and playwright). Out of the 6 I recognized, 5 are story-writers (a novel is NOT philiosophy!), leaving only Hildegard with some credit towards philosophical thought.

If you ever wonder why women can never distinguish themselves in this field, with the glory of having their writings savoured and debated over the centuries, consider this beauty, ponderously pontificated by Susan Estrich (Michael Dukakis' campaign manager) about Apple's naming of the iPad:
"Is there a woman in America who did not laugh, or at least roll her eyes, the minute she heard that the newest, hottest tablet computer from one of America's most ingenuous companies was going to sound like a feminine hygiene product? The iKotex is what most people I know are calling it, with apologies to Kotex."

The thrust of her preposterously laughable complaint was that Apple needed to come into the 21st century and involve women in the upper strata of corporate decision making. Her verbiage shows that this is as likely to happen as pigs flying. After all, can she claim sanity if she views a (cute) digital device as proof positive of gender oppression? And you wonder why women don't make it philosophy or critical thinking!

I need not say more!
Maybe she/they will get it next time around.

The face of a CHEAT & LIAR

This is Martha Coakley.
Martha who?
Martha Coakley was soundly defeated by Scott Brown in the Massachusetts senate election.
Any why?
Martha Coakley kept an innocent man - Gerald Amirault - in prison to further her own political ambitions - read the stories here, here and here.
Fortunately Massachusetts came to its senses and chucked her out, declaring with their votes that she was unfit to even sniff at Teddy Kennedy's shoes.
She also learned, like Mike Nifong before her, at the cost of her Senate seat, that prosecuting innocent men for crimes they never committed is not, and will never be, the formula to gain electoral success.

CNY Greetings

Lunar New Year greetings for the Year of the Tiger!

"You die, your business!"

For many years, even as a late teenager, I was struck with loathing at the very mention of the name Lee Kuan Yew. Even the sight his (sneering) visage made me want to hurl something, anything at the TV/newspaper/billboard/whatever said sneering visage was plastered on.

I know now that my feelings were neither misplaced nor wrong.

The following is an article, itself excerpted from an interview which the old f****r gave to National Geographic magazine:

Speaking to journalist Mark Jacobson, Lee spoke about the ruling party’s liberal immigration and pro-foreigner policies as if he was their principal architect.
Though he said he was aware of the fact that “many Singaporeans are unhappy with the influx of immigrants”, Lee continued to insist that it is for the “good” of the nation:
“Over time, Singaporeans have become less hard-driving and hard-striving. This is why it is a good thing that the nation has welcomed so many Chinese immigrants.” Lee was quoted saying.
Lee described the country’s new subjects as “hungry,” with parents who “pushed the children very hard.”
“If native Singaporeans are falling behind because the spurs are not stuck into the hide, that is their problem,” he quipped.
There are 82 PAP MPs in Parliament and none of them have come out in the open to dispute the remarks made by Lee. Can we therefore conclude that all of them agree with Lee ?
This is as good as saying to Singaporeans in Hokkien – “you die your business!” which should not be a surprise to Singaporeans anyway.
Despite being the richest country in Asia after Japan, Singaporeans enjoy few social welfare benefits which explain why the country continues to suffer a brain drain of its brightest citizens yearly to other countries like Australia, Canada and United States.
The government can afford to lose billions of dollars in failed overseas investments without blinking an eyelid, but unable or unwilling to provide a basic social safety net for Singaporeans, especially those from the low income group.
The PAP has long eschewed any form of “welfare” for Singaporeans on the grounds that it will retard our competitiveness by creating a “crutch” mentality in the populace.
As such, Singaporeans are exhorted to work for as long as they can till the day they drop dead. One minister even urged local workers to be “cheaper, faster and better” when he should walk his talk first by reducing his own bloated salary.
Our per capita income is the fourth highest in the world, but our income gap as measured by the Gini Coefficient is the second highest in Asia after Hong Kong whose figures are skewed by a disproportionately higher number of billionaires. On the other hand, Japan has one of the lowest income disparity between the rich and poor.
This discrepancy is hardly surprising as the PAP has opened the floodgate to immigrants who flock to Singapore in search of a better life.
One does not need to be an economist to figure out that the influx of cheap foreign labor will increase the profit margin of big businesses and companies thereby raising the income of their owners and directors while helping to depress the wages of ordinary Singaporeans.
At the same time, business costs are lowered contributing to GDP growth without necessarily increasing productivity which explains why GDP is a very poor reflection of the distribution of wealth and the overall well-being of the citizens in a country.
Furthermore, a certain percentage of PAP ministers’ multi-million annual salary is pegged to GDP figures which may explain the PAP’s perpetual obsession with the GDP.
To the average Singapore worker eking out a living in the streets, GDP means nothing to him or her at all. All he/she cares for is whether his/her pay is sufficient to support oneself and family, to start a family, raise the children up and to retire comfortably when he/she is old.
20 years ago, it will not be too difficult to achieve the Singapore dream. Young couples are able afford a HDB flat relatively easily, they face little competition from foreign workers for jobs, the cost of living is low compared to today’s standard and before 2003, they are able to withdraw their CPF in one lump sum to enjoy life in their golden years.
Today, Singaporeans are facing an increasingly bleak, uncertain and insecure future. The monthly median wage of a Singapore worker is only $2,600, about the same 10 years ago while inflation has more than tripled, especially that of public housing.
A graduate fresh out of school will earn no more than $2,800 a month. After paying the tuition loan, one will have little savings left to buy even a car, let alone get married and start a family.
A new four-room HDB flat in Seng Kang cost less than $200,000 in 1999. A similar-sized flat in nearby Punggol now fetches close to $300,000. In the recently launched Dawson BTO project at Queenstown, a five room flat cost on average $666,000.
Acccording to a financial consultant, a couple should earn a minimum of $7,500 monthly before they should even think of buying such a flat and even then, they have to cough out a few hundred dollars every month in cash in addition to their CPF to finance the property which leaves very little for their retirement needs.
Life is never smooth-sailing. What if we are retrenched and replaced by a foreign talent in our mid 40s, met with an accident which renders us permanently unfit to work, afflicted with an incapacitating disease like kidney failure or get embroiled in some lawsuits? How are we going to continue support ourselves and families?
A netizen, Tracy Tan shared this heart-wrenching story on the Vote PAP out facebook:
“I know of a lady who has kidney problems, heart ailment and is half blind. She can’t work because of her health problems. She is 40yrs+, a single parent with a Sec 3 daughter. She is poor, sick and helpless. She approached Family Service Centre for help. FSC saw her need and helped her to pay her HDB rental, utility bill and conservancy charges. In addition, she received $300 per month and $250 school pocket fund for her daughter for meals at school. After helping her for two years, FSC recently told her that it can’t help her with the $300 per month and her daughter’s school pocket fund although her situation remains the same. She was referred to Jayakumar’s MPS. They wrote her a letter to SE CDC to support her case. The reply from the CDC was that “she had been helped for two years already and they can’t help her anymore”. She went back to her MP and he said that he can’t help her anymore as he had already written to CDC for her..”
The above story is not an isolated case, but one which we can easily identify with in our everyday life and it can well happen to you or me one day.
The PAP does provide temporary forms of financial assistance to the needy in the form of NTUC vouchers, utility bill rebates and waival of conservancy charges, but these are stop-gap measures which address only the symptoms of the disease and not its underlying cause.
If this lady is unable to find or hold a long-term job, then it is the duty of the government to step in to help family for as long it is necessary till her daughter complete her studies and start working.
There are many needy Singaporeans who are in dire straits and yet not able to qualify for state support due to its stringent criteria: one must be certified either permanently unfit to work forever by a medical specialist or completely destitute meaning that one has no living relatives left before one can apply for Public Assistance (PA) and even then, it is granted only on a case by case basis.
Another real life story: a 73 year old lady has to pick used cardboards for a living in Toa Payoh Lorong 7. She has a fifty year old son who is mentally challenged and therefore unable to hold on a permanent job. She could not qualify for PA because she still has a son, never mind the fact that nobody wants to employ him!
The PA scheme which is run by the Ministry of Community, Youth and Sports, offers only $330 monthly to its recipients which is surely insufficient to maintain a decent standard of living fit for a human being in Singapore.
A few years ago, the amount is only $290 and when PAP MP Dr Lily Neo asked MCYS Minister Dr Vivian Balakrishnan to increase the sum so that PA recipients can have three meals a day as an entitlement, he shot back: “How much do you want? Do you want three meals in a hawker centre, food court or restaurant?”
It is not as if MCYS is so cash-strapped that it is unable to provide more to the PA recipients. Dr Vivian just unveiled a $10-million dollar Community Integration Fund to make new citizens and PRs feel “welcomed” in Singapore. Why not spend it to help Singaporeans who have contributed to the nation in one way or another?
The primary role of the elected government of the day is to take care of its citizens who voted for it, not to compete with other nations in terms of some obscure economic indicator, flaunt one’s wealth to the world by saving distressed foreign banks or jet around the globe at the expense of taxpayers to lecture other leaders on how to run their countries.
Lee’s latest remarks will demolish any future attempts by the PAP to portray itself as a party which cares for Singaporeans. He has already stated very clearly in no uncertain terms: if Singaporeans are unable to keep up with the immigrants, don’t ever expect the PAP to help us – it is our business, not theirs.
For a young graduate struggling to start a family due to sky-rocketing costs of public housing, it is not the business of the PAP to bring the prices down.
For a middle-aged man who is retrenched because his company manages to find a younger and cheaper replacement from China or India, it is not the business of the PAP to help him find another job.
For an elderly man who has to work as a cleaner to support himself because he has no savings left in his CPF, it is not the business of the PAP to ensure he has three basic meals a day.
This is the kind of society Singapore has become under 44 years of uninterrupted PAP rule – cold, unfeeling and materialistic. Can such a country ever hope to attract the best talent in the world to settle here? Is it little wonder that Singapore is getting the “discards” from China and India and not their crème de la crème who prefer to migrate to U.S, Canada, Europe and Australia?
The PAP’s economic policies have already taken a toll on the low income group and are now affecting the middle class. The rich businessmen, doctors, lawyers, accountants and engineers may think they have “prospered” under PAP rule, but wait a minute – stop and ponder over the future of your children.
Do you want them to grow up competing with foreigners over a coveted place in a Singapore university? Do you want them to fight tooth and nail with the more “hard-driving and hard-striving” immigrants for a job which pays no more than $2,000 a month? Do you wish to see them perpetually stressed, frustrated and unhappy because they are unable to make enough money to finance their lifestyle? And lastly, do you really bear to see your children working for as long as they are able to because they are unable to retire?
Even for PAP members with connections inside the system – your futures are not as secure as it seems. Unless you belong to the elite, you may soon find yourselves replaced by their new “pets” from China, India, Malaysia, Philipines, Bangladesh, Timbuktu and god knows where.
The PAP is not even a political party now after the departure of the Old Guards in the 1980s. It is nothing more than an empty shell filled by department store dummies whose only purpose is to masquerade Singapore as a “parliamentary democracy” to the rest of the world.
As Lee puts it succinctly himself:
“To be the prime minister, you don’t have to know every instrument, but you got to recognise, ah, he’s a good violinist, he’ll be the first violinist, he’ll be the double bass. He will play the viola, he will have the trumpet, he will do the drums. Then you coordinate them and then you have great music. And if you already have a great orchestra, you can put a dummy there and you still got great music.”
Now we know why none of the 82 PAP MPs dare to contradict the old man – because they are all dummies who do not deserve a seat in parliament in the first place.
So Singaporeans, the next time some PAP MP come up to you and promise to voice your concerns in parliament, just remind them of the PAP’s mantra to Singaporeans:

Finally, the man whom many see as a "founding father" and is almost god-like to an older generation of Singaporeans has finally been exposed as a hypocritical bastard who cannot and will not keep his bloody yap shut. And our votes keep him power!!!

For that matter, I had high hopes when Vivian Balakrishnan joined the ruling party. I thought, here's a man who has ideals, can speak out, and will be a shining light in an increasingly dark age. In less than a year, my ideals came crashing down around my ears as I watched him transform into a mangina, a cojone-less travesty.

Its telling that none of the media have broadcast this damning interview. So much for free speech and freedom of the press. For my part, I'm putting this on my blog so that people will have a chance to read it and form their own opinions. If anyone wants a properly formatted PDF just write to me -you'll find the email in my profile- and I'll be more than happy to send it to you.
