Her Final, Mile…

It’d been, real hard, this, final mile, of hers, she’d, dragged on, for what seemed, like, an eternity, she was ill, starting at the beginning of her early eighties, or was it, late seventies, nobody can, really, recall now…

She’d been, in and out, of the hospital, during this, final mile of hers, and yet, something inside of her, refused, to let go of life, and so, she’d, held on, strong, with that final breath inside of her, refusing, to let go.

what it’d, looked, like查看來源圖片with, no end in sight…photo from online

It got to the point that the attending doctors, the primary physicians can, no longer, do anything for her, and stopped, all treatment options, but, she’s, still, holding on too tight, to her, dear life, and, nobody knows for sure, why!

Her final mile, it’d been, difficult, and that would still be, an understatement, for during her final days, she’d, struggled, too hard, to hold on to that, final, dying breath of hers, when all the vital signs, had, slowly come, to a, halt.

Her final mile, she shouldn’t have been, shocked back to life that first time, they should’ve, just, let her die, but her families, couldn’t, bear, to see her go, and so, she dragged on, for the, final mile, of her, life…………

The Husband is Abusive & Threatened to Dismember Her, She’d Filed for Divorce & the Courts Allowed

A “specimen”, of a perfect LOSER who got into the HABITS of, always blaming someone ELSE for his own problems!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A couple had been married for over forty years, the husband had abused the wife long-term, and even threatened his wife that he’ll dismember her like the story on the news, after many years of holding it in, the woman filed for divorce with the courts, at the trial, the husband repeatedly stressed how he’d, given it all to keep his family well; the judge believed, that the husband disregarded his wife’s feelings, always rationalized his behaviors to the ideals of patriarchy, that he’d not worked hard to patch up their marriage, signed off on the divorce, this can be appealed.

The wife testified, that her husband holds himself on a high pedestal, did what he wanted to, had often verbally and physically abused her.  She’d originally not wanted to give up on the marriage, due to the years they’d shared, however, two years ago, as the case of dismemberment of the wife by the husband came out in Taoyuan, once as her husband was abusing her, he’d, threatened her on it, “I’ll make you into the woman from Taoyuan!”, signaled that he was going to, murder then dismember her too.

The wife stated, that her husband’s words and actions caused her to be on edge by the day, besides he was constantly suspecting that she wasn’t faithful to him, as the scam artists called her number, her husband suspected that she was, cheating.  She’d lived under the shadows of domestic violence too long and finally had it, she’d filed for divorce.

The husband stated, that his wife had left home for days on end, and, used the excuse of having a new male friend, to not come back home, that he’d focused on making a living to provide for his own family, that he wasn’t like his wife had said.  To keep his family running well, he’d, not complained, besides he’s getting older, couldn’t withstand the stresses caused to his children if they were divorce, or the gossips from others around them.

The courts investigated, that the wife had been abused, and there had been a restraining order issued by the courts, the injury reports from the hospitals, and his wife’s mother testified, that she saw her son-in-law beaten her daughter up, that her daughter had a concussion once from getting beaten by him.

The courts believed, that during the trial, the man stressed on how much he’d loved his family, wife, how he’d, wanted her back, but his actions, showed how distrustful toward his wife he was, that he’d even, physically abused her repeatedly, that he’d not changed his behaviors, and blamed his own actions on the ideals of patriarchy.

The courts pointed out, that the husband disregarded how his wife felt, kept blaming others, making his wife helpless and disappointed time and time again; in the final testimonies, the husband didn’t do anything to prove that he loved his wife, that the courts doesn’t believe that anything will change in their relationships, and, signed off of the divorce.

And so, you’d, beaten the SHIT out of your wife multiple times, and still, somehow, managed to, rationalize your own fucking bad behaviors as love?  Yeah, uh, get REAL here, and thankfully, the courts saw right through that, and saved this woman’s life, allowed her to finally, DIVORCE this, L-O-S-E-R!!!

The Heart Behind Nailing in the Coffin, on Filial Relations

Out of respect, for the family who’d raised her, a final rite of passage here, translated…

One afternoon, the phone rang at my house, on the other end, came the voice of a woman, “Hello, youngest uncle!  Long time no see………” Wow, could it be, again?  The woman seemed to have felt my concerns, she’d immediately added, “Youngest uncle, I’m not a scammer, I’m………”, and the voice, it had, sounded, a whole lot like my niece all right.  “My mother’s in critical condition, since she fell ill, she’d been telling me, that after she passes, to ask you to help her ‘nail her coffin down.’”.

Then the past all came, rushing back to me, my eldest sister was adopted, I don’t have that many memories of her, by the time I was born, she was already, married away, or, maybe, I should say, she’d, eloped.  Back then, she wasn’t getting along with my eldest brother of twenty years senior, she’d fallen in love with a man in the factory she worked in, in those times, the neighbors, our relatives, families, and friend all chatted on and on, my father felt that he’d, lost face, and, claimed that she wasn’t, related to him anymore; and even so, as my eldest sister’s eldest daughter who was at the same age that I am, she’d taken her home to see our parents, and my parents no longer, felt angered anymore.  It’s just, that my eldest sister didn’t marry well, her husband didn’t take care of her family, and, she’d, insisted on not receiving any assistance from our parents, used her cooking skills, started a market food stand, raised her five young up.

The following day, I’d, immediately gone to the hospital to visit my eldest sister, being ill, she’d talked with happiness, on the parents who’d, raised her up, and, regretted how she didn’t, treat them with kindness, and recalled everything she experienced back at our home, in the end, she’d, asked me, to seal her coffin up with a nail symbolically, and naturally, I’d agreed to it.

A week later, my eldest sister passed on, and, in the funeral, my niece started crying, told me, “As you’d gone to see mom that day at the hospital, she was so happy, kept chiming on about how you’d agreed, to help seal up her coffin, how she finally, had a true family of origin…………”

“Sealing the coffins with nails” was originally something that was done for unwed women who’d died, having the male siblings of her own family to check to see if they’d been, abused to death, if there wasn’t sign of foul play, then, the male siblings would then, nail in the nails around the coffin, and this became a sort of a ritual out of courtesy of the deceased woman’s respect toward her own family of origin.  At this very moment, I’d, finally, come to understanding of why my eldest sister requested that I be the one, who’d, helped her complete, this most important ritual of her life that came after her death, this was, her deep love, her remembrances, of our, parents.

And so, this, is a ritual of the family, and the woman was adopted, and, she’d, married badly, and, despite how she’d, gone against her own adoptive parents’ wishes, they’d still, loved her wholeheartedly, and, accepted her back into the family, and, the niece asked the uncle to nail her own mother’s coffin, not just as a way of fulfilling her own mother’s, final wishes, but it was, a sign of respect the woman had for her own family which she was, raised in.

Lost in Thought, a Poem

On trying and finally accepting, the inevitable: DEATH, translated…

On the Day I Dreamt of My Mother

I’d Not Checked the Albums on My Phone to See

If the Buddha Had His Eyes Lowered

If the Background was the Mountains or the Cliffside

Don’t Lie to Me, Just, Come All Out

The Lenses, Too Worldly

Can’t Switch to that Boundary

The Mothers of Others Kept Aging

Becoming Those, Old Yams, Old Taros with the Bearded Roots

Walking Slower, No Need to Rush

Take Your Children & Grandchildren, Dragging Yourself Along that Stroller

In the Early Evenings, the Swallows Returned Back to Springtime

That Stumbling Shadow with the Back Turned Had Always Been Mistaken by Me

That It Shall Be, Returned, to that Familiar Address

The Storyline Shattered, and Crumbled Multiple Times

Slowly I Knew to Hide, so I Can Accompany This One Dream

No Need to Argue, No Need to Tell the News

God Shall Come by, the Eggshell Broken

It’s Best that You’re, Taken Hostage

And Get Hatched and Become Anything Else

What’s Meant to Come in Eventuality, the Crowds Appeared in Black-and-White, Silent in the Freeze Frames

There’s Too Much Logic Underneath the Sun

Circling Oneself, Enveloping Oneself

Using a Lock, to Escape

I am, Out

Walked in a Straight Line with My Own Mother

Don’t Clench My Hands Too Tight, Don’t Rest

And, Don’t Blink

So this is, a man’s, coping with his own mother’s, death, because, of how his mother is, almost dead, and he is finally, allowing the fact of what’s, inevitable, sink into his mind…coping with this, loss that simply can’t be, avoided.

He’d, Struggled on the Bottom of the Socioeconomic Ladders…Partnered Up in Business with His Friend, Set a Fire, Killed His Friend, as He Got Stuck in a Bad Situation

The courts showed leniency for this murderer, and gave him a lighter sentence for murder, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

Lee held a grudge toward his friend, Chen, at the end of the year, two years ago, he’d gone to Chen’s resident, poured the gasoline around his place, committed arson, causing Chen to have burns on his body, he was rushed to the hospital, and died, the first trial found Lee guilty of murder, sentenced him to life in prison, the Kaohsiung High Subsidiary Courts considered how before he’d committed the crime Lee suffered from insomnia, and other problems, yesterday, based off of the rules of the laws of reductions in prison terms, sentenced him to sixteen years, and stripped him of his government position for ten years, this can be appealed.

Lee (age 53) has two sons with his wife, worked as a manual laborer at the fishing ports, but due to the reduction in the catches, his wages got cut to below $20,000N.T. per month, he’d started working as a temp at the waste water disposal unit, he’d also temped at the frozen foods factories as well.

In February of 2018, Lee planned to go into the shrimp business with his friend, Chen, but the work didn’t prove to be fruitful enough, he’d not made any money in six whole months, he’d attempted to kill himself by taking the medications; as he was rescued back, he’d, resumed working in the frozen foods factories again; because his second son is in college, and Lee was out of work for awhile, it’d, caused him economic stresses, plus he’d heard that Chen’s been spreading rumors on how he was lazy around, they’d gotten into an altercation in car sales too, and this, made him want to kill Chen.

On the evening of December 8th two years ago, Lee took a twenty kiloliter plastic keg to the gas station to fill up, the following day at around four in the morn, he’d, poured the gas onto Chen’s steel shack, ignited the fire around Chen’s residence, then, ran off, two hours later, he’d returned back to the scene drunk, told the police that he’d, committed arson.

Back then, because Chen was, asleep inside, by the time the firefighters got him out, he’d had second, third degree burns covering over eighty-percent of his body, as he was rushed to the hospital, he’d, died.

The first trial took into considerations, that Lee turned himself in, that he’d, admitted to what he’d done, that he he’d not reached a settlement agreement with the families due to his lacking of income, that he wasn’t someone without humanity, but the families of the victim asked the courts for a severe sentence, the courts charged him with murder, sentenced him to life in prison, and he’d had to, pay the family members of the man he’d murdered, a total of $2,547,500 N.T.s.

The second trial in the Collectivist Courts found, that Lee was originally sentenced to the death penalty, but because he’d qualified for the sentence reduction for turning himself in, but the first trial didn’t consider that he’d shown signs of depression, was mildly retarded, was insomniac, or suicidal, plus he’d pleaded guilty and was willing to apologize to the families of the victim, but the families of the victim wouldn’t accept his apologies, and that they’d not reached a settlement agreement due to his lacking in ability in paying them, believed that life sentence was still, too harsh, the Collectivist Courts reduced his sentence to only sixteen years.

And so, this is how a mental illness can, gets you a more lenient sentence, and because this man who’d, murdered his friend showed a good attitude (Whatever that meant!) after he’d turned himself in, and was willing to pay the victim’s families, that’s why he got off, easy.

Complying to the Homestay Quarantines, But Got Discriminated Against, & the Pays Cut

The experiences of an individual who was serving his at-home quarantine for MERS-CoV, mandated by the government, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

With the rises of the cases of MERS-CoV, the CDC can almost use the management techniques, to make the locals comply, and yet, the process had a ton of troubles that needed, amending. 

a live news footagewith the caption that reads: even if you’re not ill, we will, STARVE you to death!  found online

I took a flight from China, arrived back home from China at the bottom of January, before I aboard, the airline company asked everybody to get their temperatures taken and recorded.  There weren’t that many passengers, and I’d worn my surgical mask all the way, but not used the lavatories.  As I arrived, because of my work, I’d had to go to three days of work consecutively.  And yet, by the fourth day, I’d received a call, telling me that I need to quarantine myself at home, reason being one of the passengers of the flight I was on was confirmed with the diagnosis of MERS-CoV, that everybody who was onboard the planes needed to have quarantine in their homes.  As I got off work, arrived at my home, there was a man holding the papers that mandated I go into house arrest for the quarantines immediately.

It happened so suddenly, at first, my work wouldn’t allow me to take the long leave of absence, demanded that I continue to work.  But if I don’t stay at home during the quarantines, if I got caught, the first time, I’d needed to pay a $60,000N.T. fine, and the second time, the highest amount of fine goes up to $150,000N.T., my company will be fined as well.  I’d handed my manager’s number to the members of the CDC, to have them mediate the matter, while I’d, started on my fourteen days of at-home quarantine.

There are others living at my home, while I was in quarantine, they’re still, working and carrying out their usual routines, not restricted by the government.  Because the law didn’t specify the wages for the at-home quarantines, during the time I’d called 1992 multiple times to ask the Labor and the Department of Sanitations about the matter, and I got the exact same replies: the related units will help me take care of it, that I need not worry.  During which time, they’d even told me to order take outs daily!  But, because I stopped getting paid for work, and needed to have an extra expenses for my meals, it became, too burdensome for a working class like me!  During which time, I was forced, to have my cell phone GPS on file, I was getting zoomed in on, even when I was asleep, or when I went to the bathrooms, due to bad receptions, the police or the workers in the Sanitation Department would come calling me at the house, I’d walked on eggshells.

the items taht are bare necessities of the individuals’ at-home quarantine sessions, chart rom onine

To prevent the spread of the illness, I’d worked alongside the homestay quarantines of the government.  But the problem showed, that after my fourteen days of quarantine, I’d returned back to work, found my wages deducted for over half a month, and the rest of my coworkers treated me like the plague, dodged me all they could, even the owner of the company, transferred me to the outermost unit that works from outside the offices.  And some of the coworkers tattled on how I was in the at-home quarantine programs to my clients too.

As these all happened, I felt like I had contracted, the bubonic plague, I’d followed the laws here, and yet, as I returned back to work, I was, discriminated against all around.  The managers of the various units of governments who’d promised me that they’ll help me mediate the matters of my wages and everything, all evaded their responsibilities, it’d made me feel, cheated!

After I’d gone through this experience of at-home quarantine, other than confirming that I’m, healthy, I also experienced firsthand, how there are, so many, shortcomings of the system including: the placement of my family members who live in the same residence as I, the living standards of the individuals in quarantine, along with the matters of my wages during the time I’d stopped, working, the tracking down of those in quarantine is an invasion of privacy, and as those in quarantine returned back to work, they’re, discriminated against by the company, the coworkers.  What’s worst was, that the government didn’t have a specific department window set aside to answer all of our, inquiries, and afterward, the departments evading the responsibilities for the problems they promised to help us solve!  This sort of an at-home quarantine surely is, problematic!

Yes, because there’s NO SET protocol for this, and even if there were the protocols set up, people still don’t follow it, and that, is the problems of the members of the working class, being in quarantines at home for traveling to countries with MER-CoV, and I don’t think this is going to improve, anytime soon!

The Judges Skipped His Session in Court, Solicited, Received the Gift Moneys, One was Stripped of His Judgeship, the Other Had His Responsibilities of being a Judge Taken from Him

This just showed, that pigs are, pigs are, P-I-G-S, men!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The former judge of the Subsidiary Court of Taichung, Chu was caught having skipped work to hire the prostitutes, another judge had received the gifts of the persons involved in the case he was residing over, both were, impeached, the justice department yesterday stripped Chu of his judgeship, and transferred him off the post of a judge, Tseng abused his power in office, and was, suspended from being hired as a judge for a year.  The court stated, what would the solicitors think, if all the judges who’d enjoyed prostitution and judges who committed adultery?

The system of trying the judges guarantees the independence of the judges in ruling, that it wasn’t designed for the individuals, as a judge, one must have a higher level of responsibilities, it’s an honor, to become, a judge, and, the judges should act accordingly, the courts believed, that Chu and Tseng needed to be, severely, punished for their behaviors.

Chu is currently on suspension, and transferred to an alternative post, with his pensions cut, and the pensions he would’ve received as a judge also, went out the windows; Tseng filed for retirement back in 2017, other than he can’t, ever practice law again, his retirement, his retirement pension aren’t, affected by the new laws to restrict the behaviors of the judges.

From December, 2014 to May of 2017, Chu had gone through the pimps and hired the hookers for over sixteen times, and eight times of these, he’d, skipped work for.  The courts mandated that there would be, an under $30,000N.T. fine for adultery, disturbances of social order, and, hiring hookers outside of the red light districts, and Chu was already married, and enjoyed hiring the hookers, that he’d not met the requirements of “being noble and honest” for being a judge, that he’d, damaged the image of what a judge should be to the society.

where these men, ended up查看來源圖片photo from online

Chu claimed that his wife was ill, and couldn’t fulfill his biological needs, that she’d, agreed that he could, hire the hookers, stressed, “I’d paid for it each and every single time!”, that he’d not used his status as a judge, to receive the sexual treatments for free; the courts believed, that this doesn’t offer a valid explanation for his being unfaithful to his own wife, that it was, the obstruction of societal order.

Chu had resided in a civil suit in 2016 as an accompanying judge, and because he was acquainted with the plaintiff, Chu, before he signed off on the verdict, he’d, had Chu in his home, in his office to his office, and received what he claimed to be milkfish soup and centipede oil as presents; although afterwards, he’d stated that Chu needed to pay over $70,000N.T. to the other individual, but in actuality, he’d found that Chu didn’t need to pay for the asking of the other party’s $1.53 million N.T.s; the duties courts believed, that Tseng before he decided on the verdict, had met the defendant privately twice, that it would, made the plaintiff question, that he’d, not fulfilled his moral responsibilities as a court judge.

And so, these LOSERS were, enticed by money, AND sex, and, getting suspended, is still, NOT enough, based off of my opinion, these men should be, serving the time in prison, that way, the rest of the society might come to understand, how severe, these charges are in reality, that when judges commit these crimes, they should be, punished even more, because they were, officers of the L-A-W, and instead of setting a good example, they’d, broken the laws!!!
