The Police Went Through the Obstacles & Caught the Ginger Farmer, Confiscated Six Hundred Million Dollars N.T.’s Worth of Marijuana

Apparently, the DRUG TRADES, paid, WAY better than planting those, normal, agricultural produces here!  Getting CAUGHT, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The ginger farmer, Liu in his own farm, in Lugu, Nantou, planted the marijuana, sold the plants off to a southern dealer, to make a killing, as the police in Taichung busted a drug deal last month involving marijuana, they’d followed the leads, went through the obstacles, and arrested the planters, Liu realized he wasn’t going to escape the law, he’d turned himself in, and, the police confiscated a total of 1,361 live marijuana plants, it’s the largest amount of marijuana in the drug busts in the history, and the drugs are estimated to get sold at over six hundred million dollars N.T.  The police pointed out, that they’d confiscated a total of 1,361 marijuana plants, and, based off of the estimates of each plant’s producing 300 grams worth of manufactured marijuana, the prices that Liu sold to the downstream wholesalers was $800N.T./gram, and it’s estimated that he’d illegally gained $330 million N.T.s, the Chiaotou D.A.’s office awhile ago asked the courts to have Liu into police custody, which the courts allowed.

The police found, that Liu in his thirties, was a local farmer in Lugu, he’d originally planted ginger, and other agricultural produces, many years ago he got involved in the scams, and worked at an external machinery room, was arrested, in prison for two years, as he was released, he’d realized that farming doesn’t earn him enough, and decided, to use an alternative method to plant the marijuana to make the money.

The Taichung Detective Squad in July of this year busted a dealing case, and as the officers compared notes, they’d found, that the level two dealers are stationed in Kaohsiung, and the Taichung police worked hand-in-hand with the Zuoying Substation, and called in the Chiao-Tou D.A.’s office for assistance.

After months of ambushing, collecting the evidence, the police passed through the five levels of obstacles, and the dealers told of the sources where they got the marijuana, and they’d found, that the highest on the chain of command was the ginger farmer, Da Liu, of Nantou.

The police at the start of the month went to Da Liu’s residence in Nantou to search, they’d found, that the roof, the steel shack, as well as his farms, were planted with marijuana, the police and D.A., in the midst of how shocked they all were, confiscated 787 live marijuana plants, and the equipment he used to plant the marijuana, while Liu was already, at large, after he learned of the police, trying to catch him.

And so, because planting ginger couldn’t get you enough money, because, let’s face it, these plants used for cooking, aren’t as, profitable, and so, you’d, turned to planting the marijuana plants, that’s, a much more, lucrative “business”, isn’t it?  And you got BUSTED!

The Courage that Stemmed from Ignorance, is Usually, the Most Dangerous Kind of Courage There is

This country is merely, a PAWN, something that can get TOSSED out, after use, and the president still doesn’t see it?!  Wow, is the government stupid, or is it, PLAIN, STUPID???  Commentaries from the Front Page Sections, translated…

Would the two sides of the coasts go into war?  This is the million dollar question.  But, the Taiwan Strait because of the issue of Taiwanese independence, sparked that tug-of-war between China and the U.S., the tension surely is, there.

Can Taiwan win in a war with Communist China?  This is a giveaway, only IDIOTS and MORONS will try to fool themselves.  So, the most important question now is, if the war happens between the two sides, would Japan and America be on Taiwan’s side?

Before we can answer this, let us see two of the important international headlines.

One, America had decided to retract the army from Syria, left the Kurds who are on the rebellious side on their own suddenly.  The Turkish started the grand scales of air raids and land attacks recently, and in just a few days, causing the Kurds huge damages.  There are the historical proofs of how U.S. had, betrayed its allies, from Vietnam, Iran, Iraq, to Afghanistan, the end of sucking up to U.S., we all get betrayed by the U.S., and people are suffering for it.

Secondly, Japanese had publicly stated its relations with China bluntly.  From before, due to the pressures from Trump, Japan had used a tougher stance in dealing with China, but because of the conflicts between Korea, it had to, switch sides, and upped the business, the international relations with China.  For this, the Japanese PM, Abe, canceled his trip to the shrines.

and this, is how Trump does it! And no, I still did NOT sketch this, I don’t do ART, remember??? Found online

And so, for any one with a smallest working brain, the international affairs of Japan and U.S., are based off of egoism, all they cared about, are the benefits to their own countries.  If we take from history, we can be certain of two things.  First, the U.S. and Japan are the most realistic of all countries, they will only use you, never really offer you the help that you need.  Secondly, on any matters of international relations, the fists speak the LOUDEST, so, there’s, no need, to hypnotize ourselves, or get into that delusional state of mind.

Trump for the sake of the election, took a strong “Anti-China” standpoint, and his purpose is merely to, spark up the populism of white supremacy, hoping, that as the outbreaks spread, he is somehow, able to, stay in office for another term as the president.

And this was quite similar to the stance that the president of Taiwan is taking too, but the biggest difference being, although Trump is a brute psycho, but he’s no brainless fool.  And, the president of Taiwan, seemed to have calculated everything out, she is in fact, a spoiled, ignorant, opportunist.

The biggest blindspot in all of this is how the president is sucking up to the U.S. and Japan hard, and she’d hated China to the point of totally ignoring it.  In the end, without a doubt, Taiwan will totally get screwed, sold by the U.S. and Japan, putting all of its, over 23 million people at risk.

So, if China and Taiwan go to war with each other, would the U.S. and the Japan help us?  Totally NOT for Japan, it only wanted to save itself, so, there’s no need to hope.  As for the U.S., it’d only wanted to be the one benefitting, so Taiwan can DIE in the battle fields, to pave the way for Trump’s reelection, so of course, no armies will be sent to help us.  Are you stupid enough to believe, that those, supremacist American soldiers would give their lives for Taiwan, so far away from the U.S.?

If Trump gets reelected, the businesses would be the first priorities, he will surely, resume the business negotiations with China.  If Trump doesn’t get reelected, then China and U.S. will still remain on amicable terms, to go ahead with the peaceful negotiations in business.  And NO matter what, the U.S. will never fight for Taiwan.

And those firm supporters of President Tsai, do they have a sense of cost-benefit analyses skills?  Or, are they simply, too naïve, believing, that with the blind courage, the thought, that they can, keep Taiwan, safe?

And so, Taiwan was, merely, a PAWN in this game of the world, everybody’s using us as a chip with China, and, Trump seemed to be on Taiwan’s side, but he only CARED for himself, while Japan, well, Japanese are natural born selfish, as the writer had, noted, and so, if the two sides of the straits go to war, we’re, totally, SCREWED, and yet, the currently president still blinds herself to the fact, are you, @#$%ING kidding me here???

The Judges Should Stop Being So Merciful

These court judges need to come back down to earth, instead of, living on those planets of, ILLUSIONS and DELUSIONS!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The man who’d murdered his own mother after getting high started up the discussion of the lacking in the security net in the society, it’d, made everybody fearful.

Last semester in “society’s principle” course the students asked me, what is the security nets in the society?  I’d explained, that it’s a concept, like how the acrobats of a circus, with the nets underneath the platform to prevent them from falling to their deaths.  Concretely speaking, it’s the summation of the social support systems, including the neighbors showing care and attention toward everybody locally, the police and residents working hand-in-hand, offering assistance to those in need as a society, medical care, it also include the combination of education, alongside the workings of the justice systems as well.

I’d asked the students, “What do you think the biggest hole in this net of security of the society?”, my students answered, “the justice system”.  I’d asked why?  He’d replied, “justice isn’t doing what it’s supposed to”, there is also another student who’d stated, “a city full of psychos!”, and another chimed in, “all with the chances of being reformed!”  And everybody in the class burst out laughing.  The students’ jokes reflected on how helpless the citizens felt toward how the term, “schizophrenia” and “ability to be reformed” being over used.

On the reality side of things, an eye for an eye, it didn’t, fit our times, and even If the judges have a different opinion, they’d still needed to based their rulings off of the law.  The judges should be tough, instead of kind and merciful, or too lenient and too gentle.

“The Security Net of the Society” shouldn’t just be a noun, we the people aren’t asking for much, just to be free from threats.  This sort of a minute need, does, our government see?

Of course N-O-T, because, take a look at how many murderers got away from the DEATH penalty on reason of insanity, and, these days, if you murdered someone in cold blood, so long as you plead insane, and get tested and if your results coincides with the symptoms of bipolar, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, you wouldn’t get sentenced to DEATH, instead, you would have your life in prison, with chance in parole say, in, twenty, twenty-five years, so, how’s that justice, huh?  It’s not!  But hey, that, is how the government works right now, and, there’s, NOTHING we can do, to change it!

Finding Joys in Helping Others in Need

Helping someone in need!  Translated…

Early in the morn, I’d rushed off with my daughter to work, as we alighted the buss, we saw a bunch of ladies, looking over an elderly man, the elderly man’s socks were, soaked in blood, and, the tissue that covered the wound in the tibia, seemed to continue to bleed.

Thankfully, two more stations more, there’s the VMH in Shihpai, as he got off the bus, I saw him, sat waiting with hardship at the bus stop, the blood still, flowed out, he seemed to be calling someone for assistance; and I’d not cared that it was time for me to get to work then, I’d, gone up to him, told him I worked in the hospital, and had him call his families to meet him in the E.R., while I’d gone to the hospital, to get a wheelchair to get him in.  Then came, the running fast, pushing the wheelchair in supersonic speed, to the E.R., to when his loved one rushed in, the man was taken into the surgical ward to get sutured up, and that was when that huge rock finally got dropped inside my heart.  Later, I’d learned from his family, that the elder had cancer, and he was on anticoagulants regularly, had his hospitalization been delayed, the results would be, dire.

查看來源圖片the random act of kindness from a stranger here!  Photo from online

I’d recalled how as I rushed the elderly man into the E.R., he kept telling me thank you, said that he’d met someone amazing who’d, helped him out.  I’d told him, he was my parents’ age, that if something like this were to happen to them, I’d wanted someone to lend them a helping hand too, and, this hour-long interlude, although it was, thrilling, but, in the end, it all, ended, well, other than knowing the meaning of helping other is bliss, I’m, also proud for being, that tiny screw inside that giant white tower!

And so, because your empathy kicked in, seeing the elderly man injured because you’d wanted someone to help your own elderly parents, and because it’s in your line of work, to offer assistance to people, being a medical care worker, and you’d, ended up, helping this elderly man get to the hospital on time, and saved his life.

Because There’s a HIGH Chance You May Lose to Her, You Call Her “Crazy”

Uh, yeah, that’s the way, to play it all right, trash-talking YOUR opponent in the race, and that still just showed how LOW you are in life!

Because there’s a HIGH chance you may lose to her, you call her “crazy”, and because you always got your ways, by throwing your, temper tantrums like a god damn @#$%ING two-year-old who don’t know better, you think you can somehow, sway the masses, to not vote for your opponent in the race, is that it?

the face-off in 2020! Photo from Yahoo!

The WAR of S-P-I-T-S had begun, I suppose, as all the candidates, ready themselves, to battle it out at war, and, with the “inventions” of Tweeter, FB, LINE, etc., etc., etc., making it even harder, to run a CLEAN race………

Because there’s a HIGH chance you may lose to her, as election time draws nearer, and nearer, and nearer, you’re, feeling, a bit, more stressed than usual, so, you SHOOT of your mouths.  And guess W-H-O will, eventually, DROWN in your spits? 

Yeah, it’s Y-O-U!

This is only one human being’s opinions on things, it’s NOT directed toward anyone out there, but if you think this is about you, well, I can’t help you there, okay???  Yeah, uh-huh, uh-huh, and, where the HELL are those TWO-CENTS?

The Ambassador of Peace on LINE

Trying to keep the peace, when members in your group are at each other’s throats, when they get on each other’s nerves, what can you do?  Try to mediate, in a round-and-about sort of a way, so you don’t end up, as the common enemies, but it’s, not that easy!  Translated…

My daughter-in-law one day, chimed excitedly, to the Family LINE group, how there’s, a night market close to her home, and the photo she’d sent to the group was a street, lit up with the lights during the nights, with a world of fried food stands, the arcades, I’d immediately replied back, “be careful as you don’t know the quality of oils the owners used to fry the foods, and the kids shouldn’t be allowed to play those arcades, as they may be easily addicted to these games…………”

As soon as I’d typed all of that, my daughter who’s away on another continent immediately added on, “it’s fine that you go and take that stroll every now and then.”  I was shocked, I’d, immediately recycled my message back.  Thinking about this calmly, if someone rained on my parade, it naturally would, make me feel, awful, and it wouldn’t matter if the words that someone was saying to me was right!  I’d, contemplated, and felt grateful for my daughter’s round-and-about-way of reminding me, so I slammed on the brakes before damages are done.

My friend was once the head of a certain club, he’d shared things on LINE quite a lot.  He’d told, that often, as a subject of discussion was opened for debate, some of the group had started, firing those cannons, some, quite stubborn, to one’s own beliefs, some swayed with how the winds were blowing, some agreed to others’ words, and the words were sharpened, ready for war.  The most often was the fight for the parties in the politics, some debated on the policies, some toward the incumbents, and, it’d, made it difficult, for my friend, who wanted to try and mediate between those who are then, engaged, and, he’d, spoken of his “New Year’s Resolution” aloud via LINE.

He’d said, “from here on out, no talks of politics, no personal attacks.  When we have a difference of opinions, DO delete those emotional words, to keep the conversation flowing smoothly, rationally”, and, for the six months that followed, there’s, more harmony within the group of LINE.

With the inventions of the high-tech gadgets, it’d, made people leap into an alternative world, the parents are, disregarding the needs of their children more now, and the problems between the couples, the parents and children, worsened, as our heads, lowered to our high-tech gadgets these days.

But, think on it, it’s not the gadgets that are awful, it’s the mindsets of the users, and the timing.  If one can use the gadgets, and not let these high-tech devices control us, then, we won’t become, slaves.  Like how those who’d retired who don’t live with their children, sliding on their tablets or cell phones, sending the messages, their emotions found a viable outlet, and they’re, able to get some news and new information from everywhere around.  Sometimes, they’re even, having a webcam conference with the children and grandchildren who don’t live close by, the comfort from interaction with one’s own loved ones, although they’re, separated physically, but they’d become, more than, connected psychologically.  To the point when there’s an emergency, the high-tech devices are, very good for sounding off the alarms.

My friend’s older sister-in-law didn’t get along with her parents, although one live up north, the other, south, they’d still gotten on each other’s bad side over miniscule matters, and, as the two sides were getting heated on the group on LINE, she’d, privately texted her youngest nephew, told him to commend his mother on her cooing, how he’s, looked after so well, so the grandparents who lived faraway, in the southern parts of the island know, that they have a good daughter-in-law.  And, other than posting the messages on how to live well, my friend told her older sister-in-law that her parents had, commended her in their circles of friends, how they’re, so proud of her.  And naturally, the problems between this mother and daughter-in-law pair, slowly, resolved on their own.

Working hard, being the middleman of peace, at first, you may feel, tried, because you couldn’t make the results of the changes you want to see happen faster, but, after awhile, the results will, show.  The communications apps are of various sorts and kinds, with the members numerous, and, it certainly isn’t by chance, that we’d, found each other, in the vastness of the ocean-full of people.  If you can cherish this affinity, and, work hard, as a connector in every group you’re involved in, keeping the peace, for everybody’s sake, as you turn on the apps, it can only bring you joys in the days.

This is on, being, THE middleman, and, this woman has some valid points, but, I don’t, necessarily agree with her on everything.  I mean, it’s important, that you want to keep the peaceful flow of conversations on your LINE accounts, sure, but sometimes, you just, can’t ignore how someone’s words made you flare up, and, if you don’t find a valid way to get the angers you feel out, then, it will surely, damage you, and not just your relationship with that other person.  And yeah, a middleman who will help, diffuse this, lit up bomb, may be necessary in these cases, but not always.

The Night, Withering, Away

The night withering, away, and there’s, nothing we can do ‘bout it, no matter how much we wanted it to last, it just, can’t and won’t!

The night, withering, away, it just, faded, into black, like those, old memories we once hold so very close to our hearts.  The night, withering, away, and, it’s still, tick-tocking, on that countdown of the clock, and it won’t slow down, nor stop, ever.

the night, fading into day…photo from online

The night withering, away, how can we, make sure, that these nights last forever, huh?  Is there, any way, we can, just live inside, this, freeze frame of our own, imagination, and never age one more day?  Because, oh, how I longed, to stay in your arms, forever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever………

The nights, withering, away, and there’s, NO stopping this process of time, and, we’d, run short again, as that sunlight, came through those dusted curtains once more, you are, leaving again.

Selling the Raw Ingredients Used to Make MDMA, the Man Was Found, “Not Guilty”

Yeah, uh, how the #$%^ is this not guilty?  Oh yeah, because unless all the substances are, mixed together in a chemical lab, it wouldn’t, considered, harmful, or addictive, is that it???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The man, Su bought the chemicals GHB, extracted the GBL (gamma-Butyrolactone) from it, mixed it with water, and sold the bottles, was charged with distributing illegal substances; the judge believed, that even though, the butyrolactone is used to make a level two controlled substance, but it’s not listed as a controlled substance, that it can’t prove, that Su was guilty of selling and distributing drugs.  In the verdict, it’d stated that the gamma-Butyrolactone wasn’t listed as a controlled substance, that the citizens can easily get their hands on, hoped that the FDA can place a restriction on the substance.

Last year on March 5th, Su used the communication app claimed that he had some substances for sale, the police acted as buyers, and used $1,800N.T. to order three bottles, and as they went to get the substance, Su was busted and arrested, and as the liquid was tested, it was confirmed that it had the substance, GHB in it, the D.A. charged Su on attempts to deal a level two substance.

Su denied having trafficked, claimed that he’d used a total of $3,000N.T. to buy two 500mL bottles of GBL, then split the volume up, and sold off the bottles to help get the party going; the defense attorney stated that the “liquid” confiscated by the police only had trace amounts of GHB, that GHB is highly unstable, and can change with the temperature, as well as the acidity, that there’s no proof that Su was selling the bottles with the GHB in it, and that Su did not intentionally sell the controlled substance either.

The Taoyuan District Court discovered, that the liquid that Su was selling had less than one-percent of GHB in it, and, although the courts didn’t believe that Su stated he wasn’t selling drugs, but based off of the data, the literature of the investigative bureau, the GBL soaked in liquid, will become GHB, with the changes in the acidity or basic level of the solution it was in, Su claimed he’d bought the solute on February first of last year, was arrested on March 5th, and the reports of the ingredients of the liquid he’d sold came out on March 23rd, there was the uncertainty of how GBL was turned into GHB due to environmental factors, that it was difficult, to confirm that the liquid Su was selling had GHB or not, he was released, on a not-guilty verdict.

This loser got off on a technicality, because this chemical is quite unstable, and can change with the varied temperature, that’s why the courts couldn’t confirm that he’d sold the raw ingredients to make the illegal substance for sell or not.  And this can be, a really BAD precedence, because now, every one who’d tried to sell off this particular drug can use the excuse that set this person free from here on out!

The Four Police Officers Who’d Planted the Guns to Make the Monthly Quota Sentenced to Prison Time

Just like how it is in sales, when you needed a certain number of clients?  So, apparently, the police officers needed to make a certain number of arrests too, huh?  Officers who KNOW the law, and broke it, for the sake of making that “sales marker” of the monthly quota here!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The former office manager, Wu, former sergeant, Ting, and three other officers of the Pingzen Substation of the Taoyuan Police Department, eight years ago, made a deal with the drug dealer, Liu, they’d wanted him to plant the guns into others’, in exchange for his “get-out-of-jail free card”, the Highest Court charged the officers on illegal search, setting a criminal free, along with being dishonest as a government employee, sentenced Wu and three others anywhere from five years four months to six years three months, case closed.  Before the D.A. started the bust, the officer, Wei Chen escaped to Canada, there’s currently an international arrest warrant on him right now.

In 2011, the spring safety review, the Pingzhen Substation ranked at the bottom, the following year, the officer, Ting got a hold of how Liu used a gun to commit robbery, in order to get the quotas of guns confiscated, on January 18th, he and officers, Lee, Lin, Chen, headed to the suspect’s residence in Yangmei, Taoyuan, for a search without a valid warrant, and they only found illegal substances, and no guns; Liu worried that his girlfriend with an active warrant out on her arrest getting caught, he’d begged the officers to let them slide.

Lee told Liu, that the precinct is running short on gun busts, Liu promised to give them the tips, in exchange for his own and his girlfriend’s freedom, the police agreed to this “trade-off”, they’d not taken Liu into custody, and allowed him to take his girlfriend away.

The following day, Liu’s friend visited a man, Yeh, and stowed the guns and ammunition away inside the ceilings of Yeh’s factory, then he’d, notified the police to bust the man, and find the guns he’d stashed.

And so, this, is a quid pro quo, or a tit-for-tat, the police used their power, to threaten this drug dealer to help the police station make enough busts on guns, and because the drug dealer didn’t want to get arrested, he’d agreed, and, these officers broke the law, and they’re, supposed to, uphold, to carry out the law, and, they all deserved to be punished, more severely, than the average, common criminals, because they’re police officers!

An Accidental Father

A conversation with one’s own young, on the duties, obligations, responsibilities of parents, from a legal angle here, translated…

“Mommy, what are you reading?”, my younger child came toward my desk, saw that blue-covered, yellowed pages, diary in my hand.

“This was your grandfather’s diary.”  I’d held back my tears, put it up in silence.

“When I was young, grandpa always told me, I’ll take you to Carrefour, RT Mart, bought me all those treats!”, my daughter got nostalgic.

查看來源圖片this???  photo from online

Yeah!  Mommy’s busy working, grandpa and grandma came to mommy’s rescue every time, and I’d needed them to come watch you and your older brother often.

“I loved going to the toy store with papa!”, my older son told, “I saw a limited edition Gundam that’s very expensive, papa didn’t have that much money, but I’d told papa that by tomorrow, it’ll be, gone!  And on that very night, papa went and bought it!”  my son has the potential as a scam artist, and I’m sure, that my father was, more than glad to get, cheated too.

“I don’t think I remember my inside grandpa and grandma at all!”, my younger daughter stated.

“what inside grandpa and grandma?  Your paternal grandparents, my parents!”, her father laughed and straightened her out.

Because they got too old, and, God called them up earlier to be fairies, you were still, too young.

or this…photo from online

So as mommy read through papa’s diary, she got sad.  Especially how today is Father’s Day, I really hope that I can have that meal with my father, to watch T.V. together, to have this, ordinary sort of a bliss again.

My younger daughter hesitated a bit, ran to get a cup of tea, and, served it with great respect to her father.

And her father flipped through the papers, and let out a cool sort of “hmmmmmmmm!”, and I saw that smile, curling up his lips, he was now, gloating!

“there’s only one dad, you must, cherish him!”, my son is now, sucking up too, with a fan, fanning to cool his dad down, maybe, he’d not done well on an exam, and needed to put out his father’s fire before he’d shown the papers for him to sign.

There’s, that mix and match of emotions that’s between parents and children, sometimes, what happened was, more dramatic that the soap, more imaginative than those novels.

Remembered how we’d all gone to see that Japanese film, “My Accidental Father”?  the gynecology nurse envied someone else’s happiness, switched the two newborn infants up.  Six years later, the truth came out, how were these two families supposed to, cope with, this huge accident in their lives?

The two fathers, one was an elite excellent architect; the other, an electrician, who’s, easy going in nature.  Which one would best fit the children to be raised in?

“What if, this actually happened?”, my younger daughter became worried.

The way the movie worked out, it’s, gentle and understanding.  But in reality, the parent-child relationships, were based, off of the laws.  There are the adopted children and the blood-related children in the facets of the law.

“Children should follow the filial piety duties toward their parents.  As Civil Law 1084 stated.”  Dad recited it aloud.

“Second, parents should protect and educate the underage minors”, mommy added.

You want to match memories?  You’d forgotten to hold my hands first time we went out on a date, as we crossed that intersection; on our second date, you’d dozed off, started snoring; and, by the third date………………(deleted millions of characters here!)

Dad who was on his tea started choking on it, started coughing hard, and, escaped into the bathrooms.

“Mommy, there’s a sixteen-year-old daughter who’d sued her father, because he wouldn’t buy her a cell phone”, my older son thumbed through the online news.

“there are the fathers who’d sued their young for parental support, but the judge said the children didn’t need to pay it!”, my younger daughter discovered something as well.

Ahh, the stories mom heard and saw in court, last longer than the Arabian Nights!

There was a middle aged man who got in court and started crying on the stand, it’d made mommy want to lose it too.

“Mommy don’t cry”, my older son handed a tissue to me, “I thought only daddy can get you worked up, can’t imagine someone else had too!”, came my husband’s coughing from the bathroom again!

“what had happened?”, my children both got curious.

That middle aged man’s father left the family when he was a young child, it was his mother who’d raised him all on her own, him and his two other siblings, with only enough money for a rental stay, they kept switching in and out of their residences, forgot to go to the land offices to change their addresses.  The three siblings took out the student loans, and worked part-time, get themselves through school, and finally, this middle aged man had his own family, started raising his own young, finally, he was able to give his mother a good life.

But, the middle aged man’s father suddenly returned, Social Services notified this man to go and claim his own father’s dead body.

“What?”, my daughter covered up her ears, couldn’t dare hear the rest of the story.

His father who’d only shown up as a registered name on his national identification card, finished his final passage of life in a nursing home.  Before this, the Social Services sent multiple notices to his registered address, to let them know that they needed to pay for the owed fees of having his father placed, but they’d, already moved out, and through the searches, the Social Services finally found the three brothers and sister.  Based off of the law, there’s the obligation for care, so the nursing home demanded that they pay for the money for their father’s care.

“But this dad had never been responsible at all toward his own young!”, my older son became confused.

During the time when their father went missing, the family didn’t know to report him missing, while their mother never filed for divorce either, let alone the children never knew they could file a petition to “relieve themselves of caretaking duties toward their father”.

“If the fathers didn’t care for their children when they were young, then he can’t ask them to take care of him when he’s old, is that what this means?”, my son inquired.

“Hmmm, it’s called ‘Without just cause not providing for one’s own children’, Civil Law 1118 section 1.”  Dad finally showed up, replied, “every unfortunate family has a different bad story.”  From before, the former generations said raising the children so they don’t need to worry about their old age, and now it’s, taking of the elderly years, watching out for the young.

“So, do we save the allowance you give us and pay you back when you’re older?”, my daughter asked.

Nope!  Child.  It’s the parents’ responsibilities, AND obligations to raise their young, same for how the children treat their own parents.  This is not a sales or a trade-off, it’s not quid-pro-quo, tit-for-tat, nor trading the younger years, for that permanent meal ticket in old age.

But, we must admit, that in this world, there are, the unfitting parents, also, the bad children too.  If this middle aged man’s father was found of not providing for his children when they were younger in evidence, the law must agree too, at this time, forcing the children to act kind, wouldn’t be just, or right.

“But this sort of cases are post-date.  Meaning, that you must file a formal lawsuit with the courts, and after you’d won the case, then, you will be alleviated from paying for the care.”, dad got serious, answering the inquiries now.

So, the debts accumulated by this middle aged man before he died, for his care, the country believed that it’s paying for him temporarily, that in the end, this middle-aged man will pay for.

“But, what if you don’t have children?”, my younger daughter voiced her worries, she’d not planned to get married, or have any kids.

It’s, the million dollar question of elderly caretaking, and national social security, how the policies should be, set up all right!

Should the only reason for what constitutes as parents and children based only off of blood?  And, the social security, is it an act of kindness, or a responsibilities for all of us, citizens to carry?

“Mom, stop worrying, you’ll get more wrinkles!”, my older son reminded me kindly.

It’d hit dad suddenly, he’d suggested, “Today’s Father’s Day, let’s go offer incense to both your grandfathers, and tell them we’re all very happy together.”

And then?

“Let’s have a gourmet meal, to thank me, as a responsible dad, of course!!!”, dad said, with that, affirmative tone of voice.

And so, this, is a discussion that’s, sparked up by the kids, and the parents are more than willing, to help the children get more educated, with their separate areas of expertise, and through this conversation shared with their young, both the parents and the children benefitted.
