Half the people have absolutely no idea who's the Minister of Finance. Come on, all day long we worry about money and we want more money, we say we need money, money and money. But who gives a shit who the Minister of Finance is? There's this thinking that we are too small a fry to influence any decision, so why do we even bothering to care?
True. most of the time, even if many many small fries come together to try and change the decisions, or show that they are fiercely against certain decisions, they voices would not be heard, or rather their voices would be ignored.
Why? Because the government knows the best for us. We are aliken to infants, still unable to make decisions for ourselves. And it's funny how both Low Thia Khiang and Chiam See Tong both opposed the Government's decision of building the casino. So, even if they themselves are for the idea, but they would still be obliged to go against the idea just because they are the opposition? Would that be the case?
I would guess it will be a yes. That's what opposition party is for. Not many is willing to take this road nowadays i guess. After all that happened to the previous oppositions, it's easy to see why. Chiam See Tong and Low Thia Khiang both leaves very very huge shoes to be filled. Despite being amount the minority, they've managed to garner the support and respect of their residences.
Enuff about the casino issue already, that will be that, and its really good that there'll be so much more jobs for pple to do. I might make my way there to be a card dealer or smthing in the future. So i can be colleagues with all the bunny girls. Wish me luck ya?
