A Not So Fine City after all..

After reading Singapore's PM Lee Hsien Loong's commentary about the rather impossibility of a non-chinese taking the reins of the 2nd most powerful office (first being Mentor Advisor office held by the most powerful man in Singapore history.. scare huh?!) in Asia's Fine City (Singapore's beloved pet name after the number of fines you get for about anything) anytime soon, it is rather apparent Singapore is going down the tubes. Of racial & political grime type.

Hsien Loong states that the win did not mean race was no longer an issue there, he said. He pointed out that after 20 years of Bush and Clinton presidencies, Americans wanted a change.

Perhaps. If there weren't any other possible candidates.

However, many believe that America, though reeling from a rather bad Bush day, were aware of whom they have chosen. At the end of the day, it was not black or white. It was for the future. And Obama, who is not just a fresh of breath air, was the man they needed to raise America.

And many Singaporeans do believe it will change the face of Singapore too. However, Hsien Loong's comments, beneath its rather political correctness exterior, displays an ugly shocking truth, that Singapore being a more refined, sophisticated, educated, global city center, would have it no other way.

He says:But to reach a position where everybody is totally race-blind and religion-blind, I think that’s very difficult. You will not find it in any country in the world.

There is no such thing as a perfect world. However, America, once thrived on racial bondage, now a complete different picture. A non-white man can be the most powerful man on the earth, chosen by the American people.

No, not everyone may be racial or religion blind, but surely America has shown that, in today's modern, educated society, the majority can be.

When you understand Hsien Loong's statement right, it dawns on one that it is rather racist, right from Obama's victory - which incidentally states otherwise, and it seems PAP wants to make sure one thing is clear: No other race would ever, EVER take the top position except that of an ethnic Chinese. They have "handled" every other opposition party, who else do the people vote for? And can a non-Chinese take the party's reins?

Racist enough for you?

Have a blast!

A Mockery of God's Hand at work in the USA

Many (literally) Christians were & are (since I have read their sentiments) pretty strong against America's new President-Elect Barack Obama.

It is indeed very, very sad to hear how Christians were trying to convince other Christians from voting Obama.

Naysayings all conclude at one thing: electing Obama would mean that America is going down with the rest of the World. They portray Obama as tool or instrument of the enemy to cast American down the big black spiral hole!

Now before you get all riled up.. I am a Christian too. A bible-believing, God fearing, active for the past 21 years, Christian. I believe that God has His purposes and plans.

What? Just because Obama won it means that God was defeated? Are you kidding me? Can all this "prophets" hear themselves?

There was this Sarah Palin's prophecy where she is supposed to be the new Esther. If you have ever read Esther (if you haven't, do take a read), you will discover that Esther feared God. Sarah Palin.. well..

Sarah Palin didn't not apologise for her daughter's immoral acts that lead to her being pregnant. It's apparent that she & her husband, Todd, are ok with it.  This is not right. As Christians, we are imperfect and we do make mistakes, which is why we need to repent. Was Sarah P repentant? Very UNrepentant, if you'd asked me!

A prophecy of God would lead people to walk in His ways, which meant that Sarah Palin would have been told to repent if she ever wanted to be used by God. But the "prophecy" didn't mention such a thing.

A Christian mag even ran an article about how witches are sacrificing for Obama. So if they did the same for McCain, this Christians would probably just call a prayer against the acts of the devil. But in Obama's case, they are praying against Obama!

People will do stupid things, even really crazy things. But just because they do it for you, it doesn't mean that you believe nor condone such things! Or that you are the devil's spawn!

Btw, this same mag's editor runs that blog about Sarah Palin's prophecy.

And there are many more of useless hours spent writing these articles that props themselves to discredit Obama.

November 4th - A day of history!

History was made today. The American people made history by making a statement to history itself and to the world.

Barack Obama made history by becoming the first black 44th President of the United States of America.

The people have spoken about change - and we're not talking about policies. Being a black President precedes all that America had once held before.

There is hope after all for America. The future seems bright with this statement.
