Top ten reason why we need the GST hike

Tag:

Ok, I admit I’ve been watching too much David Letterman on youtube today.

Since the 7% GST hike is still the talking point, maybe I’ll just do a top ten for the GST hike. If the feedback is good, maybe I’ll do more of such top ten list next time.

Top ten reason why we need the GST hike
10. Chee’s meal allowance in Changi.
9. That where your progressive package come from.
8. So that when we decided to increase to 10% in the future, it would be just a mere 3% increase.
7. To get eveyone listen to that boring Budget Speech.
6. It is a trend to increase the GST after the election.
5. SBS and SMRT did that all the time.
4. Tax the poor to help the poor. Didn’t you learn that in economics lesson?
3. 2 percent increase is peanuts.
2. Need to pay the hip hop dancing P65.

And the number one reason why we need the GST hike……

1. You mean you didn’t see it coming when you voted for me?

1 of the worst sign ever

This is perhaps 1 of the worst sign I’ve ever seen.

This sign can be found at all the SMRT’s escalator.
Since its at the escalator, the sign should be clear enough for you to understand without reading the wordings right? After all, you will be passing by the sign real fast. Where got time to read the wordings?

Can you guess what exactly is this sign trying to say without reading the wordings?
“Hold on to the railing”? Nah….

PS: It is actually trying to say “Please stand to the left”.

If only we could make fun of our leaders and their policies

Sometimes, I really wish our TV could make fun of our leaders and their policies. Just like what they did in David Letterman’s Late Night Show.

I love David Letterman. His jokes are great. Too bad we don’t see the late night show in Singapore. Seriously, this is the kind of comedy that is worth watching. Not those stupid people dress up in ugly suit and make fun of themselves by looking like complete idiots. You know what I’m refering to right?

If only our TV could make fun of our leaders. It would be more interesting to watch than the stupid comedy we had now. What is so funny about people wearing thich glasses and buck teeth?

Sometimes, we really need those humor to let us forget about the bitter medicine we are about to take. We can debate or sign online petition about the stupid 7% GST hike, but let face it. No matter what we say, it will still carry on. So why bother complaining?

Instead, why not just make a joke out of it?

David Letterman works part-time at Taco Bell

This is some good stuff.

What if I was wrong? All my assumption and conclusion are all wrong.
I thought it could work out. It doesn’t seem so easy.

How could this happen to me?

Simple Plan – Untitled

I open my eyes
I try to see but I’m blinded by the white light
I can’t remember how
I can’t remember why
I’m lying here tonight

And I can’t stand the pain
And I can’t make it go away
No I can’t stand the pain

How could this happen to me
I made my mistakes
Got no where to run
The night goes on
As I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me

Everybody’s screaming
I try to make a sound but no one hears me
I’m slipping off the edge
I’m hanging by a thread
I wanna start this over again

So I try to hold onto a time when nothing mattered
And I can’t explain what happened
And I can’t erase the things that I’ve done
No I can’t

How could this happen to me
I made my mistakes
Got no where to run
The night goes on
As I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me

I made my mistakes
Got no where to run
The night goes on
As I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me
