Calling the Corruptions of, War

The precedence of, Ukraine, still NOT, taken, seriously enough here, ‘cuz, oh yeah, there’s NO bombs, dropping down, blowing UP this god DAMN island that I’m currently living on, Y-E-T!!!  The Taiwanese “popularly elected government” is still FUCKING (don’t pardon me here!) us all, up!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The scandals of corruption came out, the president of Ukraine, Zelenskyy fired FOUR assistant directors of government offices, five governors, an assistant district attorney, along with many other in the higher up government, including the assistant manager of his own office, Tymoshenko.

The corruption of Ukraine is already, world-renowned, and, Zelenskyy used the slogans of “fighting corruption” to help him win the elections; and yet, his closest cabinet members are corrupt, right under his, nose.  After the Russo-Ukrainian Conflict began, he’d used the green t-shirt to shape his own heroic image, while the corruptions of his government officials, ongoing outside the camera lenses.  And, this scandal made the rest of the world realized: that the corruptions of war give off of an even, bigger stench!

what they looked like, photo from online, and more are, “coming in”…

As the soldiers of Ukraine give their lives on the frontlines, lying DEAD, the higher up officials are living high, and extravagantly.  Tymoshenko had used the Chevy that were used to extract the locals to safety as his own; the assistant basic equipment manager, in a contract that helps restored water and electric power to the people, took a bribe of $400,000 in the engineering; even the D.o.D. took the kickbacks on the meal costs for the servicemen who are fighting the war on the, frontlines.

The disclosures of all of these, scandals, had, completely, blemished the justifiable reasons of a country’s going to war.  The problem being: is this scene, only unique to, Ukraine, or, is this, the unavoidable, results of, war?

Wu and Hsiao both stated to the foreign presses, matter-of-factly:  Taiwan is ready for war as a whole society.  Recently, there came, the news of the Speaker of the House, McCarthy’s possible visit in the springtime here, it’d only been, no more than six months since the Communist Chinese fighter planes, battleships started, circling Taiwan, and now, the DDP wanted to, defy the People’s Liberation Army of China.  But, doesn’t the DDP have other tricks up its, sleeve, why does it keep on, tooting the horns of, war?

The higher up of Ukrainian government got turned over, every call that’s loud for war, sounded like the war horns of, corruption, sounding, quite, suspicious!

the “head counts” from back in 2019! “Graph” found online

Of course, the U.S. would want us to go to war with China, after all, it’d, already RETREATED all those TMSC engineers out of the country by, “extraction”, leaving this island as, a vacant lot, and, hello, hello, hello, that’s what, 13 BILLION in population across the seas in China, and how many do WE have here???  Yeah, not even close to HALF of that, and so, here’s the “dilemma” (yeah right!): do we go and save the measly millions, offending BILLIONS in China (that would be, SUICIDE in business, you DO realize that, right???) or do we just, let that god DAMN island, that we’d already shipped ALL of our, outdated battle gears to, sink?

You do the “math”…

Is your head sore?

My Head’s Completely Sore

My Arms Too

Not to Mention the Smiles as Well

Stop Being So Sore Now

She Only Wanted to Appear Cute for a Little While

This, is how we’re, socialized, to behave ourselves, because we needed to, put ourselves in some unknown categories of whatever, that’s why, we FAKE it!  And, by FAKING it too long, what’s faked became, absolutely, REAL, and we end up, losing our own, true, selves, and that’s, no good!

The DEATH, of, Little Albert…

You remember that young kid, who got, put inside a laboratory, with that god DAMN rat, where the psychologists, conditioned him to fear the rat, by making that LOUD noise as they’d, reintroduced the rat to Little Albert?  Yeah, that unfortunate, K-I-D!

Well, guess what, I’d, “checked out” the “post-op” review of this “story”, and the article said, that after the lab, his mama moved with him, out of the area, and, not long after that, Little Albert (and no, I don’t believe that the kid’s name was actually, “Albert”, that was what they’d “labeled” him as in the laboratory!), fell ill, and, never made it out of his childhood years!

And that is, MURDER, for the sake of experiment, I mean, you would think that those god DAMN psychologists would be more careful, to first come UP with a safe way, to countercondition that kid to before fear got instilled into him, but NO, that’s not how “science” worked back then.

and, here’s the video of that in black-and-white from YouTube

By the codes of research of present day, I would imagine, that this “lab” would’ve never passed review, but unfortunately back then (the 70s. 60s, 80s???), they did NOT set up a strict code of ethics, which is what caused this young child (whose name wasn’t even ALBERT!) to D-I-E.

So, another, innocent KID, got, S-L-A-U-G-H-T-E-R-E-D, in the name of, SCIENCE…and that’s, just, ANOTHER K-I-D, that never made it out of his, childhood, ALIVE!

Under a Government Who Cried, “Wolf”…

We the people are, unfortunately, ALL, gonna D-I-E!  No wait, not just die (like, lying in our deathbeds, from old age and whatever!), but we’re all, gonna get, SLAUGHTERED!

Under a government who cried, “Wolf”, they had us, standing in line, bowing our heads, some even got down on their knees to crawl, to thank them for, ABUSE, for not doing enough, to save those who’d, already, died from the plague…

with SHIT coming out of their, mouths…

Under a government who cried, “Wolf!”, where’s that huntsman when you need him, huh???  Oh yeah, that loser’s, busying, RAPING Little Red, so, let’s not, “disturb” him, in what he’s, doing.

Under a government who cried, “Wolf”, we still believed in their, empty promises, of how they only had OUR best interests in mind, how they only wanted what’s good for us all (but, don’t WE got a say, of WHAT’s, good for us all???)…

Under a government who cried, “Wolf”, yeah, you already know how THAT story went, don’t ya?  And, we’re still, the innocent (more like too stupid, too blind!) flock of god damn SHEEP, waiting for that “field trip” to, SLAUGHTERHOUSE TEN (‘cuz Slaughterhouse NINE’s “under renovation”, and it won’t be reopened until, March, I think…right, it’s set for its, GRAND REOPENING in M-A-R-C-H!!!)

with we the people, eating all of that SHIT, up too! and the “poop” is, REAL, NOT ice cream! Photo from online

We the People, Paying for the Mistakes of the Energy Policies of the Government

And because, we’re still all, paying into, this government’s, SHITTY plans, that’s still, money down into the toilet (Watch it all go ‘round, and ‘round, and ‘round…), off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Last year, the government had collect4ed around $450 billion N.T.s in taxes, an all-time historical high, and the waves of “returning some taxes back to the people” came on, and we all expected that the refunds will be in cash, but the president, Tsai stated yesterday, that the refunding the taxes back to the people is temporarily placed on halt, wanted us to understand.  And yet, a huge chunk of this over-collected tax amount is going to Taipower company to cover the lacking in the cost of electricity, in other words, we may not get the refunds of the taxes back, we are also, paying for the energy policies of the Tsai government, how can we possible, understand that?

The last eleven months from two years ago, Taipower had already sustained a loss of $220,400,000,000N.T.s, already closing in on the total capital of the company’s worth of $330,000,000,000N.T.s.  Due to the hike in energy costs because of the Russo-Ukrainian conflict, especially for natural gas, it’d increased the cost of operations for Taipower Company, and, the estimated shortage may be roughly the same this year compared to last year.

and, here’s what THAT, looked, like…and, guess what’s going to happen, AS the plug goes into the wall??? Cartoon found online

The key to causing this total loss of the cost of operations of Taipower, is the government of Tsai’s rushing into doing awa3y with nuclear power completely.  The originally planned percentage of natural gas provision of fifty-percent by 2025, thirty-percent powered by coal, and the reusable energies only twenty-percent, due to the shift in goals of energy production policies, the check’s bounced last year ahead of its due date, and we can now only, use more fire power to increase the electricity power that we are in need of.  Especially, the proportions of natural gas powered is still increasing, this sort of a continual loss, is entire caused by the faulty energy policy of the government.

And the cost of power will only get higher and higher, and higher by the day for the futures, and, the reusable energies, will NEVER reach the rate of what’s promised to us by our, government, plus the party is now, pressed by the votes, and doesn’t DARE anger the people, the evaluation of the lowering of the costs of electricity became a rubber stamp, with, Taipower Company never breaking even.

To have a stable source of energy, the industries keep on calling out to the government, but the government still keep on giving the taxes that we pay to make up for the operational losses of Taipower, which is the same as wiping the ASS of its own, bad energy policies.

And, there you have it, the Tsai government SCREWED us over, by manipulating the people to vote NO to restart Nuclear Two, and we already all expected this to happen, and now, we’re, merely, sucking it up, and taking whatever the FUCK the government’s manipulated us into believe, and the people here, DESERVE to get, SCREWED over, because the population are too FUCKING (don’t pardon me!) retarded, to vote the way the DDP wanted them to.

The Parents’ Not Letting Go Expert Found: Children Can Easily Become, Unprepared for Life

Uh…ya THINK???  And this is what the experts here, only started, figuring out too, wow, are they, slow here or what???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

With the eighteen-year-olds as adults citizenship rights, the dropping out of school of college and university students no longer needed consents from the parents.  But, for most, parents are the ones, paying the tuitions still, and they believed that they should have the right to know if their own children are dropping out, and why.  The education groups stated, that the parents should let the children try the schools out first, and co-own the responsibilities of the rights and benefits, otherwise, the children entering into the world will get hurt too easily, and the parents who are all-powerful may end up having incompetent children.

The many professors of the colleges and universities called the parents who don’t let go “helicopter parents”, keep on, spinning around the children.  A professor from Poli-Sci University stated, that some of the parents are too forceful, believed that “we’re the ones paying for your tuition”, therefore, we have the rights to know, and disregarded that their children are all eighteen-year-old adults, and, their actions are painted over as “being understanding of how their young couldn’t afford their own tuitions yet”, but the students would more than likely, interpret the parents as “meddling in their lives”.

and, this would be what that, looked, like!

and it’s, NOT, “pretty”…photo from online

The Taiwanese Youth Democracy Foundation’s Vice President, He told, that as the students make any major decisions, the parents will be notified after these decisions are made and the school told.  But, the students also need to know, that being “adults” means that they’re, shouldering more responsibilities, for instance, if they’re involved in a fender-bender, the parents are no longer responsible as collaterals that needed to pay on their children’s, behalf.

The secretary of the Taiwanese Youth League, Lin pointed out, dropping out of the schools, is the decisions of the children, the parents should respect it, after all, “the all-knowing parents may have incompetent children”, the schools are relatively safe as is, that it’s best that the students can trip and fall in front of the professors and parents, but they should not be ill-prepared for the world after they graduate, and get hurt.

And so, this is just how, Asian parents, covered for their own kids’ asses, I mean, it’s ETCHED into these Asian parents’ belief, that WE must be responsible for our own “young”, no matter how old they are, even if they’re all, in their, twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, as LONG as we’re still living, we will, keep them safe, like they were all, babies, because, they are, our babies, no matter how OLD they get!

And this is EXACTLY the attitude that’s, preventing all of your adult babies from manning UP, taking responsibilities for what they can’t do (i.e. keep a job, make their own marriages work, extramarital affairs, yada, yada, yada), because, all of these adult BABIES need to do is, WAH-WAH-WAH and you, FUCKING (don’t pardon me here!) would run on over, and kiss all those adult sons-of-bitches, and adult ladies on their, BOO-BOOS!

When Everything “Nurturing” is Assigned a Female Sex

This is still, S-H-I-T, I mean, who the @#$% (maxed out!) says, that nurture is synonymous with the, female gender characteristics, huh?

And, what OF, those FEMALE heads of companies, the C.E.O.’s of some, Fortune 500s that make ALL the decisions, and tackles the problems of the companies’ operations, assertively, huh?

But, that’s just it, since the start of time (don’t ask how long ago that was, ‘cuz…how the @#$% would I know???), you men put us, women, IN our places, locking us up with those, chastity belts (uh, you’ve got to be shitting me!), keeping us inside them, gilded cages, and you head out of the “hearth” (the WHAT again???), and bring home the bacon, the bread, going out, hunting with them, big-ass, clubs………………

and THIS, would be, MORE like it!

found online…

Which forces the role of the nurturer, onto us, women, because IF we don’t take up that role, then, who’s gonna!  And this is just how sexism continues, even today, and yeah, we women are slowly getting on an equal basis with all of you, mother @#$%ING, sons-of-BITCHES (still not the four-legged “varieties” I’m afraid…), but we’re still, not quite there, at the same level as you losers out there.

And this is still just SHIT, I mean, why the HELL should we women, suffer the consequences, of those who are before us, who are used to living the role of the “fitting wife”, the good mother, the nurturing, type?

I mean, what if (here’s that though!), we want to focus on our job, we are, career-oriented, like you losers, huh?  Then, we’d get TRASH talked, for NOT taking CARE of the “hearth”…

Yeah, you’ve got to be, shitting me here!

The Earth IS, My Belief, a Night Prayer

How we are all, participants, to help slow down the effects of, global warming, starting with NOT using the once plastic eating utensils when we get our foods to take out, and bringing our own, shopping bags to the marts when we go purchase things we are in need of, and, if enough people are onboard this “plan” to reduce the plastic trash, then, maybe, global warming won’t happen so fast, translated…

There is, NO mercy in the world Darwin’s discovered, the scientists told, that the Polar Icecap is, melting down massively, that by 2040, the polar bears are going to be, a thing of the, past, and, we humans will only be able to, sail on the ark, on what used to be the continents, to get away the salted bodies of, water.

and, here’s a chart of what we can do!

to help REDUCE the OUTPUT of trash that can’t be recycled, or reused again!

The droughts, the major floods, the hurricanes of Godzilla grade, the wildfires that raged like the hell that burned, are they, the signs of warning from up above, or, was it, from the greed of, man.  The prophets, the scientists, already predicted what awaits us, is it too late, to repent?  Do give us a little more time, please?  The Kyoto Agreements became, bedtime stories, but, look at the giant wind-powered fans by the seaside, the Tesla driving all over the, streets, proving, that we are now, hearing, your, S.O.S.

Although, you are our Mother Earth, but, from this day forward, I shall, love you, like you were, my child, carrying the water bottle, shopping bags, and, seeing those, unrecyclable garbage that won’t get dissolved through the passing of time, as a great malice, thou shalt not shop online is my Eleventh Commandment now, I shall, sing that praise for you, the miracle of Universes, Amen!

And so this is what one person is, doing, for our planet, and not everybody IS onboard, but, if more people are onboard with this plan of not using the used once plastic things (i.e. bags, forks, knives, spoons), and start bringing their own eating utensils to the restaurants, or, take the foods out, without the extra shopping bags, the plastic eating utensils, we can, greatly reduce the amount of TRASH we are making on earth, and hopefully, that’ll, lessen the strains on the environment a bit, only if, WE all, participate in this, one person’s doing this won’t be enough!

The Employers Dodging the Rules of Hiring, the Hours of Work for the Employees, Who Will, Speak UP for the Workers’ Rights?

Overworked, underpaid, some of these hardworking folks, trying to provide for their families, still got, STUCK at the very BOTTOM of the food chains, with absolutely NO rights!  This is truly very, bad…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The online bookstore, Book, fired a janitor who’d worked for the company for twenty years, and the matter of “hiring the maids, underpaying them, not giving them the fitting employment benefit” came out; during the time of work, the woman wasn’t insured in labor insurance, no company health insurance, doesn’t even have any retirement fund set up by the company for her, and, she was hired as a cleaning lady, but does EVERYTHING that’s, outside of the descriptions of her work duties.  As this busted into the open, it’d started up the debates, the company then changed the hiring process on paper, changing the status of the woman as a “formal employee”, and removed the C.E.O. of the company, and started its own, investigations within the company.

The development of this, can be, reviewed from many angles.  First, a lot of the bottom level workers of a company, may not know their own rights as employees.  Asking to review the paperwork, asking for a mediation with the higher up, it’s not that easy, especially the contracts for hire often played on words.  Based off of review, the evaluation of laborers, it’d been, ineffective on the companies, or that these investigations, bear, NO effect on the companies in question.

Secondly, due to the trends of laborer for hire, because those whom these individuals work for aren’t their real employers, which led to the holes in the systems, which takes away the rights of the workers, to get their legal protection.

The core of all of this, is how the companies, the enterprises are facing a restructuring of the internal working, to pursue higher efficiency.  The developmental changes of these forms of labor, demanding for the digital check-ins, the supervising via the video footages, these “post-industrial” methods of operations.  The flexibility of “digitization”, the laborers are merely the pawns, being watched, keeping up with the traditional labor-employee statuses.  But, as these changes in industrializing occur, these laborers’ rights may become, unprotected.

As the economic got worse and worse, there may be more and more cases of how the laborers are being over worked, and under paid.  Can we free them from this, vicious, cycle?

And so, this is how the trend is, you’re being required to cover too many floors, and overworked, because everything is based off of duties, not like the nine-to-five, and these blue collar workers, are being, taken advantage of, by the companies that hired them, and, they’re being, sold, being, pimped out, to the highest bidder, and we are relying on this group of laborers, who are, at the, bottom of the “food chains”, to keep our lives cleanly, and we don’t even show them enough respect, overworking them, not giving them the benefits of the healthcare insurance, the retirement package that they deserve.

From the Angers of Terry Go, Seeing the Wayward Means the Tsai “Regime” Had Taken Over the Country

It’s very clear to see, why the C.E.O. of Foxxcon got so, pissed off here, because the DDP government is too, incompetent, and would NOT admit that it’d done, wrong by the people of this country, blocking off the purchasing of the BioNTech vaccines, because the agent of the greater East area is a pharmaceutical company located in China!  And there are those who firmly believed, that the DDP didn’t do wrong in this country…off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

For the BioNTech second generation Covid vaccines, the head of Department of Health Sanitations & Welfares, Shue mocked Terry Go, “You’re like a sales agent for BioNTech vaccines!”, and Mr. Go is now, up against Shue, clearly he’d had it up to the max over these past two years’ matter of vaccine purchasing rights blocked by the government of Tsai out.

He’d started counting down the list, of how the government officials are way too authoritarian, how they’d, spoken without checking the facts first, how the head of state, Su called the opposing party’s female legislator for being “disgusting”, and had questioned repeatedly, how the legislator, the descendant of the former Chiang Kai-Shek’s making him promise there won’t be another power outage: “Your grandfather promised to take China back from Communist control too!”, and use the metaphors of buying up quarter legs of chickens as purchasing the vaccines.

Since the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, the former head of Department of Sanitations & Welfares bluntly accused Wanhwa as the “entry point of the virus”, how there’s no “meeting of the decisions of the three-plus-eleven quarantine dates”; the Taiwanese exported seafood got sent back from China, the head chair of the Agricultural Committee, Chen started up like the broken track record, “We’re filing a claims with the WTO next”; the head of department of sanitation welfare’s “bribery for vaccines” by the head of the Department of Sanitations & Welfares, Chen, to souring Terry Go recently, “You look like an agent for BioNTech vaccines!”

The writer, Xun Lu stated, “if there are still those who want to continue living in this world, then you must first, dare to, speak loudly, laugh loudly, get angry loudly, in this curse place, beating this, cursed era!”  Terry Go’s anger, showed how he is, selectively, stubborn on the values that he’d held true to his own, heart.

So, you can, imagine how this C.E.O. got so, furious, because since the start of it all, the government of Tsai had been, doing everything it possibly can, to BLOCK off the purchasing, the importing of the BioNTech vaccines for use, simply because the agent of the company of all of Asia is stationed in Shanghai, and how many are DEAD, because of the vaccines arriving late, this god damn party that’s in power does NOT give a SHIT, all it cares is being in power, being in control of all the people’s lives, and there are still those who firmly believed them in this god damn island!
