    [h=1]Singapore PM delivers banal speech for National Day Rally[/h] Published on 2017-08-20 by The Online Citizen[HR][/HR]
    by Lim Tean

    I never thought I would see the day when the Prime Minister of Singapore would give as banal a speech as he gave tonight.
    Our country has so many problems ranging from increasing unemployment , stagnating wages , astronomical costs of living , inadequate income for our elderly , ultra-low productivity and dismal innovation and entrepreneurship .
    The PM chose not to address any of these pressing issues and instead chose to assume the mantle of Chief Doctor of the Nation and spoke about diabetes. Honestly , any doctor can advise his client on this matter. National Health education in schools would be more effective too rather than a speech by the Head of Government.
    Even the section on pre-school shows no originality . It is modelled after what Barack Obama tried to achieve in his second term of Office.
    And as for the Smart Nation, all Lee Hsien Loong's speech demonstrated was how behind the curve the PAP Government has been in terms of innovation. It shows how despite the fact that Singapore is a supposed First World Nation , we are far behind many other nations in use of technology.
    But we should not be surprised. PAP ministers have spent the last 30 years coming with various stratagems of cementing their hold on power instead of coming out with innovative ideas to move our Nation forward. They are still trying to persuade Singaporeans why it is necessary to have one-party rule and why only 30 % of students should go on to University education.
    Don't be fooled by the spin my fellow Singaporeans. Behind the PM's words lie a party that is totally bereft of ideas of how to move to the next stage of our development both in terms of national as well as personal development.
    Our National Day Rally is akin to the State of the Union address by the President of the United States. Imagine the American President giving a speech like what was delivered tonight. I think Americans will think that their President has absolutely no agenda to improve their lives. Dismal!

    LHL's NDR speech shows how pathetic he and the whole pap leadership are. It shows that they have no idea how to solve SG's problems.

    All LHL did was try to deflect, distract, distort and deny that SG has very serious problems. Lim Tean is absolutely correct abt LHL's NDR speech.

    Singaporeans better wake up to the quality of SG's PM leadership

    Lim Tean as usual cut straight to the chase and hit the nail on the head.

    Pinky is the worst PM in Singapore's history. Period. Zero leadership, zero vision, and absolute clueless about how to solve the quagmire Singapore is in right now, not to mention taking the to the next lap.

    All he's capable of is assembling a team of cabinet ministers to study a dead man's will and using state resources to hound his nephew over a private FB post.

    I have said before - he is preaching to his audience which are the sycophants, the grassroots leaders and their families. These are people dependent on the state for everything including how to take care of diabetes.

    He is living in his own world.

    The problem is diabetes n hypertension does not kill..it just a burden on the person and the state .. the management n maintenance is expensive n hard to die...this is the worse form of illness. And of course pinky is a clown..he is totally incompetent as a person. But because of the powers that be...he remains PM

    Actually I think pinky depends alot on his subordinates to do the work..he just approve on their ideas...I doubt he even know what the real issues are..he is too dumb or retarded to have ideas or plans..at least Trump know what he wants to do in office but keeps getting stifled by the establishment.

    Nothing is going to change. Type 2 diabetes cannot be solved with a sugar tax anymore than lung cancer can be solved with a cigarette tax and liver failure be solved with a booze tax.

    These diseases are all self inflicted. The change has to come from within.

    Worse still peasants who can't pay up end up raiding the reserve through medifund. This is of course a very crucial national issue. Peasants can die but cannot raid the reserve!

    sugar tax, alcohol tax and cigarette tax are for revenue but disguised as prevention of diabetes, liver cancer and lung cancer. Typical PAP untruths and half truths

    Diabetes are Stress Related. Our society is just too stressful.

    our citizens are all overworked and stressed out - just like our mrt system.

    Type 1 diabetes causes
    Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system destroying the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. This causes diabetes by leaving the body without enough insulin to function normally.


    This is called an autoimmune reaction, or autoimmune cause, because the body is attacking itself.

    There is no specific diabetes causes, but the following triggers may be involved:

    Viral or bacterial infection
    Chemical toxins within food
    Unidentified component causing autoimmune reaction
    Underlying genetic disposition may also be a type 1 diabetes cause.

    Type 2 diabetes causes
    Type 2 diabetes causes are usually multifactorial - more than one diabetes cause is involved. Often, the most overwhelming factor is a family history of type 2 diabetes.

    This is the most likely type 2 diabetes cause.

    There are a variety of risk factors for type 2 diabetes, any or all of which increase the chances of developing the condition.

    These include:

    Obesity
    Living a sedentary lifestyle
    Increasing age
    Bad diet
