  1. One for you; one for me; one for the minister, and one for tax.

    President Gota was given a mandate to emulate Lee Kuan Yew. So far he has proved to be Lee Kuan Mew !

    The level of detection gives an indication of just how corrupt the law enforcement agencies have been in the past. When will the talking stop and the hanging of these drug dealing scum begin? This level of trafficking is not seen in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia or the Middle East. Why ? Because there is significant deterrent with the death penalty. Regardless of what bleeding-heart liberals with the sole agenda of justifying their employment may state.
