DIVIDE AND CONQUER

People all over the Free World are voting. The whole heady situation is becoming so big. And its not just because of Lehman/Lynch business either, everyone was so hung up on the whole thing long before the economy decided to screw all the bigshots around.

Honestly. I also think Singaporeans are so much more engaged in foreign politics rather than domestic affairs.

In Tuiton Yesterday
Ms Eu : I guess you guys arent really interested in politics. BAHYOU.

R-The-Brilliant: Im not actually remotely intrigued by DOMESTIC politics. However, i am incredibly informed with foreign matters-of-state.

(This coming from a Secondary 1 Nanyang Genius who probably has an IQ comparable to Stephen Hawkings, the paralysed man who wrote books by blinking his eyes.)


I must say so myself, Obama and McCain make more interesting news compared to Lee Hsien Loong and his party. I hardly presume a black/ex-beauty-queen-who-can-see-Russia-from-Alaska will suddenly sweep into the Singapore Goverment picture any time soon.

Until then, Singapore will have to be content with our seemingly humdrum state of governmental affairs.


I not really sure who i want to win anymore.

He (Obama) has promised that "the first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act" (known as FOCA). This proposed legislation would create a federally guaranteed "fundamental right" to abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, including, as Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia has noted in a statement condemning the proposed Act, "a right to abort a fully developed child in the final weeks for undefined 'health' reasons."

Damn it.
The fact that i am completely against abortion, makes me ONE KIND OF hypocritical since i like Obama's view of almost everything else and practically salivate when he makes those awe-inspiringly rousing speeches with his sexy, charismatic, chocolate self.

Plus, the fact that a woman who has yet to prove that she has sharp intellect and a firm grasp of the sophisicated economy-polictics (now even more so) behind that beauty queen homebody charm might become President and Commander in Chief of America's Armed Forces FREAKS ME OUT.

I dont know which is ultimately scarier, the fact that Obama wants to further liberalise the already broad-minded stance toward abortion in America, or Palin becoming the leader of the free world should calamity befall McCain.

BAH POLITICS.

Im not even living in America. See what i mean?

We are such busybodeees.





HOHOHOHO.
Divide and Conquer.

It has a certain ring to it, innit?

I always thought it was all about warfare, like how the troops gotta DIVIDE themseleves then conquer. Its so ironic its cool.



I escorted the Guest of Honour around our school yesterday, and hes called Dr Cheah. I was so nervous because i was afraid i'd forget his name and call him, like Dr Dolittle or something (because i was slightly hysterical at meeting a someone who actually used the salutation 'Dr'.)

I was awfully excited and i borrowed by mom's black courtshoes )with heels) because they were black and had awesome looking straps. I figured if i was going to make a good impression, i would do it looking pretty.

And pretty i did look.
Hohohoh.

In the end, because i kept repeating to myself "Its Cheah, just think Cheer. Call him Cheer! Haha, now i wont forget.", i ended up saying Mr Cheah.

WHICH WAS EVEN WORSE.

Dr Cheah was really nice, though.
Hes so gentle and nice, and personable. He really listens to people, and is scarily assertive in that quiet, uncondecencing way of his.

He askes me what i wanted to do when i grew up, and i told him Journalist, and unlike other people who would either say hey cool, and move on or scoff and mock me with the downsides of jounalism (no stability, always travelling, ect), he actually encouraged me and told me that he was proud of my dream.

(I was so touched i nearly cried. HELLO, the guy barely knows ME! Plus i called him Mr Cheah.)

My thank you speech when i become a renowned Natgeo Photojounalist who has won numerous awards will go something like:

THANK YOU DR CHEAH, ROCK ON!
AND TO ALL THOSE SUCKERS WHO TOLD ME I COULDNT,

IN YOUR FACE!


Okay, that was obscene.


But a girl can dream.

And while im at it (dreaming) i wanna marry TI, and he'll say

"Hey, youre way too cute to be working here"

and treat me special and nice,

and tell me "BABY, YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE, BABY YOU CAN GO WHEREVER YOU LIKE."

oh amanda, you are one cheeky girl, anyway all the best onto fulfilling your dreams and aspirations. Anyway in my views i too finds Dr Cheah a very inspiring person indeed. However about the political issue you have mention earlier, in my views once again, i feel it is important for a youngster like you to read up and understands other countries politics too, especially you are intending to be a journalist. well i wish you all the best in striving your dream goals, prove to the world that not only a boy can fulfilled their dreams, but a girl could do too, as there is this code, GIRL POWER!!
take care
