COVID-19 shutdowns have resulted in the economy tanking. Companies close and people lose their jobs.
The government doled out heaps of cash to help those affected and those who qualify received financial assistance to tie over this difficult period.
Some financially well-off people have somehow gamed the system to enjoy receiving thousands of dollars from the government – I hope this gets investigated and the culprits punished to the fullest extent of the law – yet these scammers are ungrateful and will not hesitate to fuck the government whenever they find the slightest excuse to do so. One retard I know incessantly compares Singapore to China and keeps saying that Singaporeans are idiots compared to the mainland Chinese, how Singapore is lagging behind – “in China, even the vegetable seller takes cashless payments” – and how Chinese companies are world-class innovators, etc etc ad nauseam.
I have urged the government to investigate all claims for financial assistance and ensure that those who receive all those monies are not sitting on fat bank accounts – earning interest no doubt – living in fancy condos, eating in fine-dining restaurants and ordering pricey food from gourmet groceries because I have heard enough stories about such people.
When I was in the States, I’ve seen with my own eyes, people driving up in their ginormous Cadillacs, wearing expensive fur coats to collect their welfare money.
Same thing here.
This phenomenon makes the rest of us honest, hardworking people – whose taxes we paid have contributed to the nation’s reserves, from which those ingrates now draw on – feel like fools.
