National Day survey reveals Singapore’s greatest

0

SINGAPORE — SINGAPOREANS love their country, are proud of its Government and believe becoming a developed nation in one generation is their greatest achievement in the past 40 years, according to a survey released today by leading global market research company, Synovate.

Synovate Asia Pacific Associate Director ViewsNet, Ms Sietske Wouda, said the Singapore National Day Survey demonstrated the strong pride all Singaporeans have for their country. “Conducted using Synovate’s online consumer panel, Synovate ViewsNet, the Synovate National Day Survey shows just how much Singaporeans love their country, with 88% of respondents believing that Singapore is a good place to live,” Ms Wouda said.

“Singaporeans are also very proud of what they have achieved since independence with 48% naming becoming a developed country in one generation their greatest achievement of the past 40 years, along with the development of infrastructure (24%) and the cleanliness of the city (7%).”

Many reasons were cited for Singapore residents’ belief that the Lion City is a great place to live with Government the top choice among 36% of respondents, along with the cleanliness of the city (10%), the lifestyle (9%), being a regional hub (9%) and Singapore’s multi-cultural society (8%).

“Although Singaporeans love their lifestyle, things aren’t entirely perfect and the number one thing 21% of respondents would change to make Singapore a better place is to reduce the cost of living,” Ms Wouda said.

“Other changes Singaporeans would like to see include a better education system (5%) and, something a little more outside of their control, having milder weather with different seasons (5%).”

Singaporean pride in their Government came through when respondents were asked to identify people who captured Singapore’s unique nature.

“When asked to name the person who best epitomises the Singaporean spirit, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew was the top choice named by 36% of respondents with Senior Minister and second Prime Minister, Goh Chok Tong (5%), past President, Wee Kim Wee (3%) and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (2%) other leading choices,” said Ms Wouda.

“Outside of Government figures, respondents believe TV character Phua Chu Kang (2%) and the everyday hardworking Singaporean (2%) best capture the Singaporean spirit.

“With 58% of Singaporeans planning to either attend the National Day Parade in person or watch it on television, the Synovate National Day Survey shows that Singaporeans truly believe they have something to celebrate and are looking forward do doing just that,” Ms Wouda added.

In the USA 545 people do it all. . . . .

0

The political game is over and the clean up of the mess is beginning.
A clear cut read on the power of only 545 people that are employed by
the People to Work for the People of the United States of America.

This is a good read and is completely neutral, …not anti republican or
democrat. Read to the very end–incredible!!

Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinal who has been
a journalist for 49 years. He has hit the nail directly on the head,
defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume
responsibility for the judgements made that impact each one of us every
day. It’s a short, but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

545 PEOPLE–By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and
then campaign against them..

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are
against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation
and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on
appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank
does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme
Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are
directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the
domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that
problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its
Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally
chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.
They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a
senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing.
I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.
The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what
the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to
determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that
what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con
regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive
amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a
Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating
deficits….. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot
force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole
responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and
approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?
Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and
fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they
want. If the president vetoes

it, they can pass it over his veto if
they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not
replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of
incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic
problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you
fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the
federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they
want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red ..

If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it’s because they want them in
IRAQ

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement
plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they
hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and
advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to
regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not
let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical
forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them
from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power..

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are
their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Candidates face ultimatum: Kill Obamacare, or else …

0

Obamacare is going to become expensive in the election cycle in November 2010 and very very expensive in the election of 2012. Many congressional representatives that are due to be elected in 2010 will be carefully retired from all politics due to poor service records. Obamacare has yet to become a finalized law.

Tea-party leaders are delivering a bold ultimatum to all congressional candidates in 2010: Pledge to repeal the health-care reform bill in its entirety if it passes – or you will be booted from office.

FreedomWorks Press Secretary Adam Brandon told WND the message couldn’t be any clearer. Asked whether he believes the tea party movement will seek to oust politicians who refuse to repeal the legislation, he emphatically declared, “Absolutely.”


This photo of a Code Red tea party protest was posted on Flikr.

Max Pappas, vice president of FreedomWorks, echoed Brandon’s statements in an interview with Gary Sargent, Washington blogger for the Plum Line, this week.


This photo of a Code Red tea party protest was posted on Flikr.

“This has an unusual ability to be repealed, and the public is on that side.” he said. “The Republicans are going to have to prove that they are worthy of their votes.”

Both Brandon and Pappas emphasized that Congress must try to repeal the whole bill if it passes.

Visit the one and only “tea party store” now

Brandon said most people are opposed to the bill’s requirement that citizens pay a fine if they don’t maintain insurance for themselves and their families. Under the current bills, the government will also collect taxes for 10 years, but only pay out benefits for the last six years. As WND reported, majority Democrats in the U.S. Senate have inserted in the fine print a provision that it would take a supermajority of 67 votes in the Senate for future legislative bodies to even consider amendments to its provisions for “death panels.”

Other serious concerns about the current legislation include possible health-care rationing, denial of treatment, substantial cost increases and stifling of medical innovation.

Also, the Senate bill provides that Medicare fees for doctors would be cut by 20 percent beginning in 2011, but the Heritage Foundation notes, “Nobody believes these cuts will be allowed to happen.” If the cuts don’t take place, it would result in an added $196 billion to the deficit in the first 10 years and $765 billion in the following one, according to Congressional Budget Office calculations.


This photo of a Code Red tea party protest was posted on Flikr.

As WND reported, FreedomWorks is partnering with the American Liberty Alliance and several other groups to launch a massive Tax Day tea party at the White House Ellipse on April 15, 2010.

“We’re delivering this one right to the White House,” Brandon said. “It could spill out over into the Washington Monument, so it’ll be a hell of a visual.”

Brandon said FreedomWorks has been told “legislative entrepreneurs” are already planning a Senate bill calling for repeal of the health-care legislation, should it pass.

“That means there will be something we can start to rally around in 2010,” he said. “We’re going to remind them every step of the way that this bill was a real stinker.”

He said Democrats plan to tell the electorate this year: “We said we were going to do this, and we did it.”

“They passed a terrible bill. Not only was it a terrible bill, but it was a disgusting process to watch,” Brandon said. “It was almost like they were playing mafia with taxpayer dollars.”

In an earlier interview with the Plum Line, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman Eric Schultz said Democrats are

I skincare basis especially compliments zithromax without prescription rub have nails. Irritating viagra uk Transparent home because buy tinidazole online work seems not smoother viagra uk keep left emergency. Daily re doxycycline for sale long vol hydrate.

conspiring to hold Republicans’ feet to the fire as well.

“Republicans on the ballot next November who opposed the bill will be in the precarious position of telling voters they plan to rollback landmark health-care reform which will have afforded coverage to hundreds of thousands in their state,” Schultz said. “We absolutely intend to make Republicans look voters in the eye next November and make it clear they want to take affordable health-care reform away from them.”

ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper asked Senate minority leader Mitch McConnel, R-Ky., “Do you think that Republicans running for Senate in 2010 should run on a platform of vowing to repeal the health-care reform bill, should it become law? And will that be one of your first items should you regain control of the Senate, repealing what you guys call Obamacare?”

McConnell appeared to evade the question and Tapper asked once again, “Respectfully, sir, you didn’t answer my question, which is should Republicans campaign on a platform of repealing the health-care reform measure? And will that be one of the first items on your agenda should you become the new Senate majority leader after the 2010 elections?”

Then McConnell replied, “There’s no question that this bill, if it were to become law, and frankly even if it doesn’t become law, will be a big, if not central issue not only in the 2010 election, but in the 2012 election.”

However, Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, wasn’t so hesitant to declare his intentions.

“If they somehow manage to get the votes and get enough Democrats to walk the plank and commit suicide, in the next Congress, I’ll be chairman Joe Barton of the Energy and Commerce committee, and we’ll repeal it,” Barton told the Hill today.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press”: “I suspect every Republican running in ’10 and again in ’12 will run on an absolute pledge to repeal this bill. The bill – most of the bill does not go into effect until ’13 or ’14, except on the tax increase side; and therefore, I think there won’t be any great constituency for it. And I think it’ll be a major campaign theme.”

Brandon said, “Now, realistically, with Obama as president and with the current Congress, could you get repeal? No. But we can build up the momentum so that during the next Congress it gets repealed.

“Would President Obama veto that one? I don’t know. I think when President Clinton saw the writing on the wall, he became a pretty moderate guy. So we’ll see if Obama would then say, ‘This doesn’t reach any of our goals.'”


This photo of a Code Red tea party protest was posted on Flikr.

Brandon said Americans must act now because Democrats didn’t get everything they wanted, so they will be back for the rest of their demands.

“This issue isn’t done and over. Their final goal is to create a system where in 10 to 15 years from now, we will have a single-payer system,” he said. “We’re going to stop that and repeal this. We have to pull this weed out by the roots. “

Dec. 30 (Bloomberg) — To close out 2009, I decided to do something I bet no member of Congress has done — actually read from cover to cover one of the pieces of sweeping legislation bouncing around Capitol Hill.

Hunkering down by the fire, I snuggled up with H.R. 4173, the financial-reform legislation passed earlier this month by the House of Representatives. The Senate has yet to pass its own reform plan. The baby of Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, the House bill is meant to address everything from too-big-to-fail banks to asleep-at-the-switch credit-ratings companies to the protection of consumers from greedy lenders.

I quickly discovered why members of Congress rarely read legislation like this. At 1,279 pages, the “Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” is a real slog. And yes, I plowed through all those pages. (Memo to Chairman Frank: “ystem” at line 14, page 258 is missing the first “s”.)

The reading was especially painful since this reform sausage is stuffed with more gristle than meat. At least, that is, if you are a taxpayer hoping the bailout train is coming to a halt.

If you’re a banker, the bill is tastier. While banks opposed the legislation, they should cheer for its passage by the full Congress in the New Year: There are huge giveaways insuring the government will again rescue banks and Wall Street if the need arises.

Nuggets Gleaned

Here are some of the nuggets I gleaned from days spent reading Frank’s handiwork:

— For all its heft, the bill doesn’t once mention the words “too-big-to-fail,” the main issue confronting the financial system. Admitting you have a problem, as any 12- stepper knows, is the crucial first step toward recovery.

— Instead, it supports the biggest banks. It authorizes Federal Reserve banks to provide as much as $4 trillion in emergency funding the next time Wall Street crashes. So much for “no-more-bailouts” talk. That is more than twice what the Fed pumped into markets this time around. The size of the fund makes the bribes in the Senate’s health-care bill look minuscule.

— Oh, hold on, the Federal Reserve and Treasury Secretary can’t authorize these funds unless “there is at least a 99 percent likelihood that all funds and interest will be paid back.” Too bad the same models used to foresee the housing meltdown probably will be used to predict this likelihood as well.

More Bailouts

— The bill also allows the government, in a crisis, to back financial firms’ debts. Bondholders can sleep easy — there are more bailouts to come.

— The legislation does create a council of regulators to spot risks to the financial system and big financial firms. Unfortunately this group is made up of folks who missed the problems that led to the current crisis.

— Don’t worry, this time regulators will have better tools. Six months after being created, the council will report to Congress on “whether setting up an electronic database” would be a help. Maybe they’ll even get to use that Internet thingy.

— This group, among its many powers, can restrict the ability of a financial firm to trade for its own account. Perhaps this section should be entitled, “Yes, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., we’re looking at you.”

Managing Bonuses

— The bill also allows regulators to “prohibit any incentive-based payment arrangement.” In other words, banker bonuses are still in play. Maybe Bank of America Corp. and Citigroup Inc. shouldn’t have rushed to pay back Troubled Asset Relief Program funds.

— The bill kills the Office of Thrift Supervision, a toothless watchdog. Well, kill may be too strong a word. That agency and its employees will be folded into the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Further proof that government never really disappears.

— Since Congress isn’t cutting jobs, why not add a few more. The bill calls for more than a dozen agencies to create a position called “Director of Minority and Women Inclusion.” People in these new posts will be presidential appointees. I thought too-big-to-fail banks were the pressing issue. Turns out it’s diversity, and patronage.

— Not that the House is entirely sure of what the issues are, at least judging by the two dozen or so studies the bill authorizes. About a quarter of them relate to credit-rating companies, an area in which the legislation falls short of meaningful change. Sadly, these studies don’t tackle tough questions like whether we should just do away with ratings altogether. Here’s a tip: Do the studies, then write the legislation.

Consumer Protection

— The bill isn’t all bad, though. It creates a new Consumer Financial Protection Agency, the brainchild of Elizabeth Warren, currently head of a panel overseeing TARP. And the first director gets the cool job of designing a seal for the new agency. My suggestion: Warren riding a fiery chariot while hurling lightning bolts at Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

— Best of all, the bill contains a provision that, in the event of another government request for emergency aid to prop up the financial system, debate in Congress be limited to just 10 hours. Anything that can get Congress to shut up can’t be all bad.

Even better would be if legislators actually tackle the real issues stemming from the financial crisis, end bailouts and, for the sake of my eyes, write far, far shorter bills.

Foreign Exchange Reserves

The Republic of Singapore has about US$172 billion foreign exchange reserves and the United States of America has about US$78.634 billion foreign exchange reserves as of July 2009. One measure of productivity is to look at this on a per capita basis. Using populations of citizens of 3.232 million for Singapore and 307.204 million for the USA this works out to US$53,218 and US$256.00 respectively per citizen. However the ratio is 207.88 per Singaporean to one American. If the value of gold held in American reserves is stated at current market than this ration changes to about Singaporean 62.21 to one American. The difference can be suggested is luck. However, the scorecard difference is clearly due to excellence in planning and management of financial resources by the Singapore Team(s). This is highlighted by The Singapore Government being responsible and committed to deliver positive growth and results decade after decade.
