You hit the nail on the head with the word "report" you been conditioned to forget its a govt controlled media which molds your views. If there ever was a racist attack do you honestly think it would be reported as such? Try and subscribe to an international newspaper and read a paper that’s not gagged. Better yet during school holidays ask your parents if you can live in and travel to other counties, find out why top shelves in news agents are so high, then come back and see actually how limiting the media is here.renault wrote: 2: We have live in harmony. We have no strike and racial attack report so far. At least for your last 26 years stay here.
While it is never printed in black and white, please tell me you know about the real unwritten issue behind the building of accommodation for foreign workers near Serangoon Gardens, and the whole AWARE saga.
While I see where you are coming from its nice to think your country is a high value target. You have to think global here, if you ever bump into Mr. Osama Bed Linen at some Starbucks in a dessert he would be hard pushed to even pin point Singapore on a map. Alot of people overseas think Singapore is in China.renault wrote: 3: The ISA has done a good job by ensuring we are free from terrorist.
Thats y u can walk freely on the street.
I can walk freely down all the streets in any country I have lived. And not only that, if I am not happy I and a group of 5 or more people I can still walk freely down any street saying that I am not happy. Can you do that here? No... so how free are you really? You can even get arrested here for walking down the street with a picture of kangaroo on your t-shirt so not so free.
Alot of other countries around the world are coming up with help packages but none of them ever mention race, why do you keep bringing up race? Is there some sort of underlying problem here? look at it this way, If you went to a restaurant and at the front a sign says "welcome we do not have a rat problem", and on the menu dishes are guaranteed free from rat dropping, and your seat has a plastic cover saying rat proof covering, would you not be a bit suspicious and wonder why they keep bringing the word rat up? smell a bit of a rat?renault wrote: 4: Recap on the resilient package announced for budget 2009 and learn how does the govt help to retain job for local as well as PR regardless of race. Take job credit for example.
There you go again its not about winning or loosing, a strange local trait, its about having a discussion. Everything you bring up just sounds like a regurgitated front page of the local media, try and think for yourself and come up with your “own”renault wrote: Well, I would sign off from here permanently and u need not replied as i'm only stating my opinion and not debate. U can declare urself a winner if u want to.
