To me there is no such thing as politically correct..it should just be correct or right or Wrong...
Pastor says Trump is correct. Pastor ok! (Amos Yee hates him)
Dallas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress defended Donald Trump's reportedly calling Haiti, El Salvador and some African nations as "shithole countries," saying the president got the "sentiment" correct.
Jeffress, the head of First Baptist Dallas and an adviser to the president, said Friday that Trump was "right on target" when he questioned why the U.S. should permit more immigrants from countries like Haiti and some in Africa during a bipartisan meeting on immigration reform Thursday.
"Apart from the vocabulary attributed to him, President Trump is right on target in his sentiment," Jeffress told the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Jeffress said that while individual Christians have a duty to "place the needs of others above our own," Trump "has the constitutional responsibility to place the interests of our nation above the needs of other countries."
Look at all the Sporeans that have chosen to leave Spore for places like Australia, Canada, USA,...etc. There are still Long queues to do so.
Does this mean that PAP run Spore is a shit hole?
Trump descendants themselves left europe, which suffered from frequent wars, starvation and disease.
Singkies will leave n come back because ang mor lands that have led in heaps of ppl from shit hole countries are becoming shitholes themselves..that is why it's good trump wants to cut immigration from shit hole countries because its trying to prevent being a shitholes country..if trump does it right. It might prevent being a shit hole country
Singapore is not yet a shithole because we are still a functioning society. We could become a shithole 30 years from now if we continue current govt policies. The countries Trump mention are real shitholes as they are dysfunctional societies and have been so despite significant amounts of international aid. Instead of berating Trump on his lack of tact or political correctness, we should reflect on ourselves and seriously consider what course changes we as a society have to make in order to avoid becoming a shithole.
I have many relatives & friends who have left Spore. I am not seeing them return to Spore.
Some like my Neighbours kids have returned to work in Spore but they are in Spore as foreigners & don't intend to give up their Canadian passport.
Those who got a Canadian Uni degrees are unlikely to return to Spore. Even if they don't have full time employment they can easily survive on a part time or contract basis because the pay is much higher in Canada & they can also apply for unemployment benefits.
FYI. Canadians don't pay gst on food they buy from the supermarket. They also don't pay gst on school supples. School textbooks are free . Many of the Uni students I met have got scholarships. There are many, many,...scholarships available.
Some from their parents employers, others from people who setup scholarships because they have $.
Many things are cheaper there e.g. Cars, fuel, water, electricity,..etc.
Provincial medical insurance is very affordable. You pay zero premiums if you earn less than Can$20,000 annually. The healthcare is comprehensive & you do not have the same limitations as Spore's horrrible healthcare.
If you feel a need to retrain for a new career, there are many affordable vocational institutions that you can go to e.g. Ryerson, NAIT, SAIT, community colleges,...etc
In Spore the PAP treats the citizens as digits. In Canada they really look after their citizens.
I also have Friend & relatives in Australia. However I'm not familiar with the benefits Australians are getting. My classmate who emigrated there after NS, can still find work as a book keeper in his 50's.
My relatives often visit Spore & none are thinking of returning to Spore. Their homes in Australia are bungalows with Swimming pools. Why would they want to return to Spore & downsize?
One thing Spore cannot offer is a good lifestyle. I've worked with expats in Spore e.g. Australians, Americans,... & when their contract ends, many are happy to balek kampong. For them working in Spore is a hardship e.g. Stressful work environment, humid weather, ..etc
At one stage in there was an exodus of Singaporeans emigrating....resulting in Lau Goh calling them quitters.
White house.....Jean Gouders
another brain fart from our stable genius...
You have to like the British, they have a very subtle, nice sounding ways to insult...Trump is correct, but politically incorrect...unfortunate he is not British...he would have just said these Detritus from...... & these countries, will nod their head in agreement; for it had sounded so nice to the ears of saying the same thing as " those sh^$^** countries"...the British, by jolly, are so "polite".
Yes the grass is greener on the other side
If it's not a shithole..y this illegal immigrants don't want to go back? Y he say soo afraid of the gangs? Is it cos his country is a shithole? If yes than say it's because my country is a shithole..that why I don't want to go back.
Ah tiong land also a shithole...with their stupid attitude towards daughters. Now they got this problem if unmarried men..n even kidnap women too..shit attitude..n worse is I see it in Singkieland too..want son don't want daughters..
Another shithole country..where by rape is common..n done by the followers of the religion of peace
It's a bigger pond out there & their Govts gives priority to their citizens. Unlike in Spore where citizenship is a burden e.g NS, must follow all the rules & regulation. Sporeans are expected to share their rice bowls with the milllions of FT Ling in Spore.
If you are an Australian, Canadian, American,... you are also allowed to work within these countries because they have agreements like NAFTA.
The PAP hasn't bothered to develop such relationships because Sporean citizens are seen as lesser mortals.
Typical PAP response, blame the "lesser mortals" of Spore for the failures of the PAP.
Things in Spore have gotten so bad that this excuse no longer works.
I find these people from shithole countries very insecure..trump says those countries are shitholes which is true n now these people are saying he is racist? They are really out right lying n creating a storm in a teacup. People from shithole countries sure have shithole attitudes
Johnny333, although I agree with you. The reality is that many sinkies still believe they should stay in sinkieland. They will say things like they want to stay to make sure the good work of LKY is not destroyed. Or that they still have much to offer and contribute to sinkieland.
Other keep silent and stay.
And seriously for the very reasons you give on why you don't leave my contemporaries give the same reasons for staying.
Very pathetic if such an excuse is used..but it's the 70% anyway
