I missed the National Day Rally Speech~! Bummers. Was just looking through some of the netizens' reactions regarding the speech by PM Lee and there was this person who was lamenting that "I can’t figure out which is worse… getting more locals to give birth (higher taxes and more children on the streets) or getting in immigrants. As I was discussing with my colleagues earlier, we can’t imagine which is worse." (quoted from http://theonlinecitizen.com/2008/08/the-internets-reaction-to-pms-speech/)Imo, its because of people like this that causes ageing population, and if you've been listening to your teachers, AP isn't something to cheer about because WE are the generation that gets affected. Who do you think are contributing the susidies for medical and hospital bills? In future when there are more old people than young, will the burden ever get lighter then? And anyway, taxes will only increase, never to decrease. That's been the "law" for that past 43 years of independence.Enough about politics. Anyone interested in knowing the contents of this year's National Day Rally Speech can visit http://www.channelnewsasia.com/nationalday/rally_ch.htm. Don't worry about pages of long texts, its all in point form for easy reading.
One last thing before I sign off. If you're one of those slamming Jade Seah about not being good enough to be the Today In Beijing presenter, then FUCK OFF. I'm not like her hardcore fan or anything, but I don't think she has done anything seriously bad to deserve such negative comments. So maybe she doesn't sound enthusiastic enough, but hey, give her a chance! Stop beating others up over all sorts of trvial stuff. Don't Singaporeans have anything better to do? Oh shucks. Whatever. Time to go play games!!! Haha. P.S. I've just started playing GBA games through the emulator VisualBoy. Brings back fond memories of how I used to hang out in the school library with Albert and the "gang" after school.
