    Our multicultural experiment has brought to us soaring living-costs; retirement and getting out of debt seems a far-fetched idea for our younger generation.

    Of course, it comes down to political will. We rather allocate resources attack the patriots who voice our issues than tackling increased crime rates and overcrowding. Is that what Singapore politicians think the Singaporeans want? Or are voters just stupid in their heads?

    Why the continued effort in our Education programs to groom children from other countries, although most of us, have such high productivity and education that potentially earn good wages? Why create an immigrant subclass that refuses to adapt our local culture and strains our infrastructure, and humiliates our core? Why are our SMEs competing at a disadvantaged position against GLCs and invited foreign corporations that enjoy higher/unlimited MOM quota for cheaper foreigner-workers.

    How is it that, these are fresh, new and good for us? Perhaps, political correctness requires us to lose our common sense.

    How do our people accept that clowns, arrogant nuts as are elected politicians who blames others for everything from worsening ties with neighbours & superpowers, to infrastructure woes?

    Why is it worth more in Singapore to be a new-immigrant than to be local born-and-bred?

    Why do numerous new-immigrants become office-bearers in politics and GLCs, dictating how we live our lives, but not those who have ancestors in Singapore for multi-generations, those who built Singapore?

    Don't you feel the emptiness inside, and are you searching for something familiar in our surroundings. Do we still have the Singapore value to speak of? What is our definition of Singapore?

    Singaporeans today are second-class citizens in our own land, serving only as hardworking cash cows to pay tax money and higher GST, only to finance our own displacement.

    my uncle say 10% are 5th class, 25% 4th class, 50% 3rd class, 10% 2nd class and 5% 1st class. He say among all the class except first class, 69% have the never say give up attitude. He also say among the never say give up % got some % don't know their class, or class themselves wrongly so he say if they know their correct class, the % of never say give up should reduce.

    Depends which football club you playing for lah.

    If you playing for Home United vs Manchester United that is the bigger difference instead of this home and away nonsense.

    Just sinkies got ah Q mentality.
    They comfort themselves say 2nd class in Sg is better than 3rd class elsewhere (propaganda by pap). But in reality non elite sinkies are 3rd or 4th class in Sg as Johnny mentioned. The true untouchable caste

    The Indian incursion into Singapore companies began in the early 1990s. It started with a trickle but it soon became obvious that once an Indian became a manager he would start filling vacancies from his clan.

    At the same time it was pretty obvious that manufacturing in Singapore was doomed. American MNC had already started packing their bags for cheaper locations. I did not want to be the one to switch of the lights and lock the door for good.

    Only the Dumbs and Naives treat Indians equally. Indian Culture is deeply rooted in Discrimination and all Indians are born Closet Racists. Once you allow an Indian to sweet talk their way into management, that is when they exercise their Full-Blown Racism.
