Open Up Your Ears First

The public had been, saying it, it’s YOU, head of office of sanitations, who’s NOT listening enough!  Commentary, off of the Front Page Sections, on the head of sanitation department’s handling of the clusters of infections of MERS-CoV in Taoyuan, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The most overly used phrase of Chen, the Head of Welfare Sanitations of late is, “Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”, the former head of Welfare Sanitations, Yang criticized how the government didn’t vaccine the flight crews, the pilots first, Chen shouted out, “why didn’t you tell me this earlier???”, Ke criticized that the tactics of vaccinations weren’t preise enough, he’d rebutted also, “why didn’t you tell me this a month earlier?”, the commanding center declared that the medical staff members are working to vaccine the populations on the holidays without the overtime, the medical support groups came to protest, to this, Chen still stated, “if you have something to say, why didn’t you tell it to me before?”

The problem is, it wasn’t that they’d not told, it’s someone’s ears that weren’t, opened yet.  The pilot union in Taoyuan already told, that they’d sent the notices to the commanding centers, to allow the flight crews to get vaccinated as first priorities, but the suggestions weren’t, taken.  While Chen started, barking out his orders every day, and, he’d stated whatever goes, and not communicated his policies with the members of the communities, not made the rules, transparent enough at all, how can he, take in, another person’s, advice?

The clusters of China-Airlines’ infections got up to close to thirty now, and the commanding center’s consulting members stated, that “we’re prioritizing the pilots, the flight crewmembers as the ones who gets first priorities in vaccinations”.  This sort of attitude, it’s like, listening to someone else’s advices, but still, going on one’s own beliefs.  And, even if the pilots are, first priority cases, can’t they at least, be the second, before the head of local governments?  For over a year now, the outside world kept, recommending the government, to do a general scan on a wider spectrum, but the commanding centers had, fallen deaf about it!

As Chen kept asking others, “why didn’t you tell me this earlier?”, it’d shown, that he’d, gotten angered by what he’d failed to do, he couldn’t withstand the questioning of his authority on how the clusters of infections happened with the China Airlines’ pilots, of how it was his policies that’s caused the clusters of infections.  If he wants to, prove that he is able to hear an opinion different than his own, Chen should best, open up HIS own, ears!  So many claims, everybody is, speaking on, for too long already.

And so, this is what this government is, made up of, idiots who’d, only zoomed in on the policies they’d, pushed forth, and completely, DEAF, to all others’ opinions that are, a little bit, against them, like the issues of vaccines, people had been stating that the airline crewmembers, the hospital staffs needed to be the first priorities to get the shots, but, are they, getting the vaccines, heck no, because the policy makers are, the heads and they’re, the ones, putting these first priority, on H-O-L-D!  And you BLAME people for, not telling you about it?  Give me a break here!!!

Suddenly, the Government Started, Showing Care & Concerns Toward China Airlines?

The government dips, its, “dirty little fingers” into this, partially privately owned airline companies, and make it do as it will, because the government is now, in charge, of EVERYTHING that’s relating to it!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The severity of clusters of pilots of China-Air getting infected with MERS-CoV, the head of the Sanitations Welfare, Chen stated, that you can’t demand the pilots to quarantine themselves for fourteen days, otherwise, China Airlines will go bankrupt.  Surely, there’s NO country that demanded the flight crews to quarantine for fourteen days each time they fly, and no airline companies will, accept this.  On the surfaces, it looked as though the government was, showing too much care and concerns for the airline workers; but deep down, it’s their ways of, denying the realities of the situations.

The flight crews often travels to foreign nations, and, they run an originally, higher-than-usual risk of contraction; but the government delayed the inoculation of the members of the flight crews until the twelfth of last month, isn’t it, too, slow?  Plus, if the government doesn’t “treat the matter of infection seriously enough”, every time a pilot and the flight crews landed, a scan is conducted, at least, this can, greatly reduce the chances of cross-infection of the workers of the quarantine hotels.  And now, the employees of China Air became the target of the online community’s witch hunt, and this, should be on the commanding centers.

And, does the government really CARE about how much China Airlines is bringing in in income?  Not, necessarily.  Recently, the airline bought the new 777, and, demanded to have the airline company, “China Airline” in small print, changing the font of the CARGO to extra large print, with the map of Taiwan in the center of the words; and in the end, this group of airplanes can’t get to Hong Kong or China.  With China-Airlines losing the business from China and Hong Kong, of course, this, greatly, impacted the airline company’s livelihood; and the party in power showed, a total, lack of care and concerns for it, and the multiple legislators of the DDP even started criticizing that China-Airlines didn’t change this group of airplanes’ logo enough.

The stock option of China-Air is structured oddly, it isn’t a public owned business completely, but, the government could, dip into how the company operates.  The China Airlines that the politicians imagined, isn’t how it can grow, but how to use their status of power, to put those they knew in the higher up managerial positions, to steal the resources, to make the company do at their, wills.  So long as the government stated, then, China-Air would have a turn over of personnel, no questions asked; this “nation-owned airline company”, is a true, tragic.

And now, the government, dipped ITS, dirty little fingers, into the airline companies too, because, China-Air is partially government owned, and, because of the government funding it receives it must, comply to the request of the current government’s asking, and now, this airline became, a puppet of the government too, I wonder WHAT else this government will DIP its, dirty little fingers into next.

The Drunk-Driving Tests & Punishments Should be More Updated

What caused this, is how the elderly woman was hit, and then, dragged to her death!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The talk show host, Huang’s mother was hit, then dragged by a drunk driver to death, the police charged the suspect with public endangerment, and vehicular manslaughter.  Huang’s distress, it’d made me recalled the former president, Ma’s measures to prevent drunk driving, out of prevention.  The punishments of drunk-driving in Taiwan is, way too, “romantic”, which kept the drunk drivers from learning that needed lesson.

The witnesses recalled, that after the suspect hit the elderly woman, he’d run into the super convenience shops, to get more alcohol, and the breathalyzer showed 0.4mL.  He’d told the police, that he wasn’t drinking before the accidental hit, “I wanted to calm my nerves that was why I went to get the beer!”, would the judge believe him?  I’m really curious on it.  If it was a cover for his drunk driving, hitting someone, then, this is, a drunk-driving death, which will be ruled by a judge.

a chart of punishments of DUI by states, found from online

The drunk-driving punishment in Singapore is, for first-time offenders, six months in prison, with $5,000U.S. fines.  The second time, double the jail sentences, drunk-driving, injuring someone, more than the second offense, plus, whipping.  The amendment for drunk-driving was written back in 2019, the new law stated, that if the first-time offender’s breathalyzer showed 0.03-percent of higher, the driver gets anywhere from $30,000 to $120,000N.T. in fines, if severe injuries, or death came as results, the licenses are, revoked, and, the driver shall, NEVER take the drivers’ exam again ever!  But, there are, too many rich people here in Taiwan, they’re no way to prevent these, “mobile bombs”!

Who shall lead us, in the amendment of the constitution of drunk-driving?  Which member of the legislature can, not fear the lobbyists and the pressures?  The Tsai government is currently, sorting through the hot potato of the party members’ tie with the mobsters right now.  Adjusting the sentence of drunk-driving came nowhere to the president’s priorities list, this is, a, serious problem.  The justice department needs to discuss the matter further, to set up a tougher standard, or, the judges would go, too easy on the offenders again; can the justice department see this as a problem?  The president should, do something about it too!

As the punishments for drunk-driving in Taiwan stays in the dark ages, using the fines to punish the drunk driving offenders, this sort of a reform, how can it, make the families of those who’d been murdered by drunk drivers, feel safe and secure, of how the justice systems, worked?  Seeing how many of the drunk drivers are making bail, wandering around the minimal punishment of the law, President Tsai, and judges, do you think, it’s, reasonable?

Of course it’s not, reasonable, and the punishments for drunk drivers are, too lenient, and, yet, because the current government is too busy, playing the games of, politics, blackening the party that’s not in power, to make the party in power, look better, that’s why, people like you and me, we are still, getting, totally, SCREWED over, and this is the government that’s, voted into office by the MAJORITY of the population, and the majority of those who voted in this past election, are mostly, the “greens”!

The Stalking Harassment Bill, the Legislature Passed

Finally, the legislators are, taking this matter, seriously, to get the laws passed!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The case awhile ago from Pingdong of a false crash-abduction, the families of the deceased, Tseng yesterday held a funeral for her in Pingdong yesterday, and it was also yesterday, that the Legislative House passed the “Preventing Stalker” act.  The legislator from the DPP, Chou, the head of Pingdong County, Pan went to show their final respects at Tseng’s funeral, Chou stated, “we shall never forget how beautiful you were, your kindness, nor your name, because, we’d, named the anti-stalking bill after you.”

The newly written law included eight different kinds of stalking, harassment, and will be putting online harassment, and demands for dating into the legislation too, and the offenders can get as high as five years in prison at most, the head of the legislative branch, Su stated, that to make sure that the laws are set up as soon as possible, the measures will be implemented six months after it’s signed into effect.

A lot of the legislators urged the passing of the anti-harassment, anti-stalking bill, but it’d not moved forward one bit, until a month later, when Tseng’s murder had, occurred, shocking the society; the funeral for the victim was held in Pingdong yesterday, while the anti-stalking laws were passed in Taipei, and the coincidences of timing was, quite, heart wrenching.  Chou told, that she’d told Tseng in her heart, that the legislature will pass a law preventing stalkers, and hoped that the law can be signed into effect before June, “I hope nobody suffered as you had done.”

demanding an amendment to the legislature already written

The spokesperson of the Executive Yuan, Lo said, the contents of the draft of this bill was originally set to be effectively in a year’s time, but Su believed that it couldn’t wait, and revised the act so that it’s in effect six months from now.  The police departments told, that the stalking laws are the final piece of the puzzle to preventing violence against the members of the opposite sex, that the police departments will be onboard completely.

The drafts of this bill also listed eight sorts of stalking or harassment behaviors, including surveillance, observing other people’s habits and stalking, or using other ways to get close to someone’s home, school, or workplace; threats toward someone or similar actions; using electronic communication devices, the internet, and harassed the victims, for instance, making the repeated silent calls.

The office of internal affairs pointed out, if there are stalking behaviors, the police can give a written warning, and if in two years, there are the behaviors of stalking again, the victim can file for a protective order.  At the same time, as the separate cases are closed, if there’s a need, of stalking and harassment, then the protective restraining order shall get passed down, and the time is for two years, and the individuals can file for the restraining orders to be extended.

Yeah uh, you think that’s going to, stop stalkers?  Of course not, it’s just, that it’d, looked, “prettier” on the surfaces is all, besides a woman was murdered by her stalker, and that sent that huge scare to the public, which is why this law is being passed, but, would it, actually work?  Don’t hold your breaths on it!

The Chaotic War on Human Rights, Consumerism, & Nationalism that Came from the Cotton in Xinjiang:

Using the consumers, to FIGHT the wars here!  It’s, going to, work!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Swedish clothing brand, H&M made the statement of “not using the cotton from Xinjiang”, it’d caused the criticisms of the online community in China, and the brand was, pulled off the shelves by the demands of the public.  The brands affected major names such as NIKE, and ADIDAS, which refused to use the cotton from that area of China, causing the stock prices to drop, and a lot of the performers from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan too, terminated the spokesperson contracts.  Although the diplomatic department of China fought back the claims of the western accusations of “forced laborers”, the prime minister, Lee headed over to the NIKE fabric factories, to attempt to smooth things over with the enterprise which set up factories in China.  This move, caused the tug of war between politics, consumerism, and nationalism, to slowly, lose heat.

The statement from H&M on not using the cotton from Xinjiang came last March, and yet, the social media in China only started attacking it right now, the timing is, odd, and interesting to consider.  And looking at it closer, the reason may be that the U.S. is currently trying to blockade China with the nations of European Union, while the Chinese government threw that first punch, using the online community, as well as the businesses, to send out that warning signal to the European Union.  No matter, because the Chinese market already became a sales spot of American and European name brands already, the international enterprises in speaking FOR human rights, it might, elevate the moral statuses, but it may, risk the loss of markets.  This time, Communist China used its huge consumer power, to rebut the accusation the western world made toward the cottons manufactured in Xinjiang, clearly, worked way better, than going head on in diplomacy, and with this, some of the international enterprises, drew back their, original, statements.

the harsh labor conditions…photo from online

Getting to the root of the matter, the international brand’s entered into this “insult of Asians” because of BCI.  Started in March of last year, the cotton produced by the region in China stopped getting certified by the organization; by last September, BCI joined in the American legislature ban of the cottons from Xinjiang, with other members of the BCI following suit.  But the representative of BCI in Shanghai made a recent statement, clarified, that the report they’d sent to their headquarters stated that “there was NO force labors in Xinjiang”.  While the media of China accused, that BCI’s primary funding came from the international development agency of the U.S.  but no matter what the truth may be, this chaotic war had, begun.

And so, what this worlds down to is still, POLITICS!  The consumers are what makes the world goes around, and with 13.41 billion in population, you GET, how HUGE this market is, right???  And so, if all citizens of China stopped buying up American, or European brands, how much it would, impact the economies, that’s why, this is the newest sort of, WARFARE, way better than those atomic bombs they’d used in the World Wars in the past, way more effective than your, “regular”, chemical warfare too, just MAKE a group of people STOP buying the manufactured good from another country, then, watch that country’s economics, CRASH!!!

The Social Workers’ Understanding of Multiple Cultures is WAY More Important than Their Bilingual Abilities to Speak & Understand English

Written by a part-time social work associate professor, on how UNREALISTIC the policy of social workers being certified in the English language truly, is, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

On the trends of globalization, and internationalization trend, to up the competitive edge internationally, the government is reinforcing the means of dual-language education, and the testing department, in correspondence with the policies, is planning on setting up the requirements to have the English language standardize tests into the requirements, as this news came, the social work realm started ranting, everybody thought this was an unreasonable rule, that it’s, incomprehensible why the government was, mandating this.  In the realms of social worker, being culturally educated is way more important than being able to speak English fluently, the testing department shouldn’t set the standardized qualifying rules for social workers to be fluent in English, to pass the English standardized tests.

Taiwan is a multicultural community, with the foreign spouses closing in to 540,000 and those who speak Chinese close to 580,000, and this data still excludes all the foreign workers, along with the children from the foreign spouses, but, it’d been proven, that there were the problems of cross-generation upbringing, and the employment issues from the natives and the migrant families, and the rates of domestic violence, child welfare and protection are a slight bit higher in ratio too.  The population of women who are in the special conditions is higher than the other groups’, especially in recent years, the single parent families, and the cases of families on the lower end of the economic spectrum rising up fast; while the structures of social work had been providing the welfare programs to the general public, that instead, these help programs should be tailored to the varied needs of each individual and individual families specifically, and so, there’s, this necessity of the multicultural awareness and understanding.

Taiwan is now, impacted by the reduction of birthrate, the aging population, and in the implementing of the long-term care program, the trained professional social workers are, absolutely, necessary, and, yet, there’s, a very strict qualification for the certification of becoming a social worker, with the forty-five professional credits in the studies, more than four hundred hours of internship in the facilities.  And now, for the sake of “globalization” the government had added the English language qualifications exams, ignoring the local voices, can it, really, resolve the issues, it’s, quite, doubtful.

The social problems that the social workers come face to face with, in order to understand the issues with each and every case, the primary way is to get to know the values, the life experiences of the cases who are soliciting the assistance, the cultural backgrounds of the various individuals, then, they are able to, provide, the best needed, assistance to them, and so, getting these social workers trained on the multiple cultural awareness is what’s most important in the now.  Adding in the English language qualification exams, this will only drive the test takers to the cram schools, and, even if the test takers pass the exams, will they be helpful enough to the cases?  I truly suggest, that instead, “adding the language courses for the natives and the newly migrants”, to enforce the communication means of the social workers with their cases, to bring the language to everyday living, to pull the social workers closer to the cases they’re assigned to, that, is what’s, more, practical.

is way more important than…

And this still just showed, how UNREALISTIC the policies those lawmakers came up with, that are being signed into legislation are, unrealistic, and they’re making the social worker majors, to add on, another fifty, sixty, even seventy more hours of English courses so they can pass their English certification exams, and the writer is absolutely RIGHT, on the fact, that the government should SLASH this rule of English language evaluations, and maybe, focus on the languages of the foreign care workers, the migrant workers’ home language, that way, these social workers will be able to help assist these cases even better!

Encouraging Marriage, to SAVE the Birthrates

How much IS the government willing, to PAY us, to marry, and to, PROCREATE again?  And, is the government also going to, pay for those YEARS of elementary, middle, and high school, even into the college years of education of our young?  HECK no, ‘cuz, if it does, then, the government will, go BROKE!  So nope, this still, won’t work, not in my belief, translated…

Remember how the mayor of Taipei, Ke tossed out the belief of “handing the bonuses to couples getting married?”, he believed, that increasing the rates of marriage, can up the birthrate, and what the mayor went by was of how back in 1998 “Women who had spouses” had the birthrate of only 7.28-percent, and started in 2011, the percentage never fell below ten-percent, and there’s, that steady growth.  The problem is, fifty years ago, the rate of marriage of those of age is eighty-eight percent, and now, it’d, dropped to sixty-five, and so, the Taipei city government deduced, that the cause of decline in birthrate, is because people aren’t married, not that they’re not having children.

Although, this column is gender-specific, but let’s put that aside, and just discuss the statistics of things.  “Getting married,” is related to “giving birth”.  But, without the evidences, there’s no way of confirming, or denying that marriage IS related or correlated with having children.  So, why does everybody get married?  For the sake of having kids, or, are they pregnant, and then, married because the woman is, knocked up.

If the truth is the former, then, the city government guessed it correctly, that the bonuses given, may well increase the birhtrates; and yet, if the truth is the latter, the incentives are, useless, because it’s, given to those who already had children, those who wanted children in the first place.  In other words, whether or not the Taipei city government is testing the taxpayers money to test if it’d guessed correctly, but, do the citizens of Taipei, want to, pay for this, “testing fee”?

From the angle of gender, being a daughter-in-law, is way harder, than being, a son-in-law, in the Asian cultures, there’s, this lack of consideration of the gender equality is the writing of legislations of this sort.  To boost the birthrate, giving the bonuses for marriage, it’s more harmful, than helpful, using money, to entice women, to reproduce, and we’re the ones, forced, to shoulder the pressures of marriage, along with the uneven split of household tasks and raising of our young.  So basically, we are, NOHTING but baby machines and the government’s handing off the incentives for people here to register themselves for marriage, and for giving births, is a huge, SCAM!

It don’t matter how strong the correlation marriage is to childbirth, they are, different matters, and, there’s, no exact right orders for it, and, if the bonuses of getting married is being, handed out, there may be the unexpected results, for instance, people registered for marriage, but, they’re still, NOT having children; or, they may consider, that getting married many times, gets them more bonuses, so they, divorce, remarry, divorce, remarry, many times.

The forefront is, the marriage bonus need to be, a lot, to the point of it having an economic result, to have, the desired effect that the government wanted to get.  Do remember, that marriage AND having children, ARE unrelated matters, you may get married, but not want any children, or you may not get married, but are, having children, those who are married, may have the possibilities of getting divorced, the kids of one marriage, can marry to the kids of, your second spouses’ first marriages, the most important thing being: there’s NO directives to we all need to get married, and having children in our lives.

And so, this, is on the STUPIDITY of the government’s god damn, FUCKING retarded belief, of how, wow, we can, increase the birthrates, by offering the citizens the incentives on them having kiddies, the problem for that is: we women are the ones, popping them, TEN-POUNDERS (‘cuz that’s, what it’s like, PUSHING those fully developed FETUSES out of our, you-know-where, unless you MOTHER FUCKERS would like to pop those ten-pounders out on your own then, we all can just, sit, with our fans, sipping on WINE leisurely, while you mother FUCKERS: push, push, push hon, we’re (what do you mean WE, when I’m the one going through the HARD labor!) are almost there!

Yeah, and that, is from a woman’s perspectives of childbirth, and the STUPIDITY of this idea of giving the incentives to crank up the birthrate in this country here.

To Resolve the Issues of Reduced Birthrates, from a Moral Standpoint

The government is now, offering, us, HARD-EARNED, dollars, to POP ‘em out, and yet, do we, want to???  I know I still, don’t and WON’T!  And the government’s, missed the BULL’S EYE on this one, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

To help with the impacts of reduced birth rate, the Executive Department announced its, two-stage plans, to add more assistance money to reproduction of children, and the childcare programs.  It’s just, think on it hard, in recent years, the government thought really hard, spent a lot of its budgets, in making up for the assistance money for birth, setting up the public daycare programs, and yet, there’s, almost, NO noticeable, results; the younger generations, still aren’t, “popping” out the children fast enough.

It’s nothing easy, raising up the young, not just the economic burdens from raising the children, this is not just for a few years’ time; until the children grow up, the parents still, worry, endlessly.  And, relying on the government assistance, comparing that to what’s been put in, it’s, nowhere NEAR, balancing out, naturally, the effects of the assistance programs are, limited.  As the reduced birth rates, compounded with the population aging too fast, returning back to the traditional values of extended families, maybe, you’ll, find the resolves.

And so, why not change a thought, from encouraging the aging parents to be neighbors with their children, or, live close by, so the children can be cared for by one’s own parents, there would NOT be the safety concerns of leaving the young in strangers’ hands.  Although some parents aren’t willing, some worried that there may be displease between the daughters and mothers-in-law, but, you can’t over look those younger generations who are willing, to live in the same neighborhoods as their own, elders.

The government is at wits end on how to increase the birthrates, why not take from the values of families of the traditional agricultural families, and start from the schools, the families, to make it a trend of the society.  And, with the incentives of assistance money, and the public daycare programs, to help the younger generations become, more willing, to have children, that, is the right way to approach this problem.

Yeah uh, this is still, NOT convincing enough, not for me, at least, not just because I already KNOW the results of me, popping my DEAD Emily out, but what this individual saying is still, too idealistic, I mean, we’re, already, on this, PAY-AS-You-Go program of social security, we’re, currently paying into the retirement funds, that WE can’t even, get our hands out, because by the time we reach sixty-five, wow, the money’s RUN out, and, the debts just keep on rolling, rolling, rolling on down, making it HARDER, for future generations to come, and, this claim of the government’s we want you to have MORE babies, to INCREASE manpower for the future just isn’t, sound enough, I mean, even IF the government provides for your young’s (however many you have, how the HECK should I know?) education, their formulas, diapers, etc., etc., etc., etc., and you get an extra couple of thousand dollars for your kiddies’ birthdays, is that enough, for you, to WANT to have children?  I mean, do you KNOW how much heart, how much mind, how much time, AND not to mention, stress, CARES, goes into, bringing up a child?  Yeah, so, take THAT, you STUPID government!

Democracy Based off of the Laws, as Well as the People Too

The dissection of how people mistook DICTATORSHIP for DEMOCRACY here!  Commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

For these past few months, the politics from the other side of the Pacific developed like the reality shows of Hollywood.  Before January 6th, the most talented scriptwriters may not ever even be able to imagine the climax of how the people took over Capitol Hill.  And even as Biden took office, the sequel to “How American Fell”, the sequel may start filming soon.

In our memories, the American democracy had been a protocol of all democratic governments.  The American can hold their heads up high, tell the world, “Take from our example!”, and the Taiwanese politicians, scholars, or the talk show hosts, whenever they spoke on democracy, the answer is always: take after them!  Popular votes for the presidential elections, and the presidents can only serve two terms, with a bipartisanship legislative body, focusing on human rights.  In this standards, the previous heads of states, Chiang Kai-Shek and Chiang Ching-Kuo would receive “Fs”.

The U.S. is a first democracy that’s written its own constitution, for the over two hundred years since the beginning of the country, it had, continually, progressed!  And yet, there are, so many holes in the system.  First, the U.S. relied on the slaves of Africa, slain the natives (the war with the Indians lasted up to three hundred years on end), and, taking over Mexico, so the WHITES have everything they need.  Undeniable though, the leaderships from the elections, has its pros.  There were, surely, many outstanding heads of the states, even as the voters selected a mediocre president, the three branches were able to, even things out, so the president knew his, limits.

And yet, this system was based off of ruling by the people; with the prerequisite of the man in the seat willing to follow the rules.  But, Trump didn’t buy it, and that was when the world finally realized, that the American democracy WAS, a house of cards, with the rules set up, and those who are law-abiding, following them.  Like the inaugural address of Biden, which he’d stated, “the American democracy is something fragile AND precious!”

In fighting to gain power, the American court systems showed its independent from the legislative and the executive branches, with the mainstream media, all, keeping their guards up.  And yet, Trump was able to, split the States up just seventy-seven days after the election, holding the Republic legislators hostage, spreading the false news of how Biden had cheated in the elections.  He will continue to hold the Republican Party hostage.

The Yale History Professor, Schneider in his “American Abyss”, pointed out, that Trump had used many lies to sway the public, like how those who’d supported Hitler before he came to power.  And, after the truth was known, he worried, that American is on the verge of getting taken over by Fascism.  This sort of an end-of-the world belief, is prevalent, in the European and American media like CNN and the New York Times, a Pulitzer writer published the book, “The Sunset of Democracy” just last year.

Or maybe, a decade from now, we will find, that we’d bore witness to—the result that not everybody will feel glad over the decline of “Pax Americana”.  From how Athens was defeated by Sparta, how many democracies had been, laid, to rest, which showed, how democracy IS not the way to keep a nation going on forever, and so, how can the U.S. be the exception of that?

Looking at the U.S. now, think about Taiwan’s past, as well as its future too.  Thanks to the hard work of the DDP’s blackening, making Chiang Kai-Shek the most infamous evil in our history.  And yet, even the American democracy can become so damaged because of just one man, what reasons have we believe, that if Chiang took the gold after being defeated by China and ran off, or how the two former presidents decided to have the popular votes for presidents, the democracy of this island can continue to date?  Chiang’s rule may NOT be fitting to today’s standards, but, his ruling over the people, had made us into, who we currently, are.

He was the only one who can control the nationalist army, to fight against Mao, he’d also, put everything in education, as well as constructing the country too, based off of the book by the Harvard scholar, Tao’s “Chiang Kai-Shek’ and the Fight for Modern China”, Chiang WAS, the cornerstone of Taiwanese democracy.

“Everything has its time”.  That was, a famous line out of the Bible.  This is so with democracy too, and we can, only, follow this path onward.  The three-legged cat democracy is way more fragile compared to the American democracy, with the politicians, the talk show hosts spreading the wayward thoughts, there’s no balancing of power under Tsai’s rule.  Comparing us to Burma, we are, somehow, a richer society, that found its roots in the authoritarian eras, with the basis of implementing democracy.  Those who are singing those songs of reforms should think: how’s the outlook for the prematurely birthed, Taiwanese, democracy?

And so, this, is still how the government, ruled by Tsai (the president by the “majority”, because the majority of us who are against her rule, we don’t go to the polls?) is headed towards, and she’s still, wearing that HALO of DEMOCRACY (demoCRAZY is more like it!), and ruling this country like she OWNS it, and the people here, are just, way too, FUCKING (so???) blind to see it, and we have only ONE way to go in this country, D-O-W-N!

But hey, look on the bright SIDE, when this god DAMN country finally HIT the ROCK HARD bottom, it then has no other places to go, but U-P!  So yeah, how’s that for dissection…

You’d Discriminately Called Wuhan Pneumonia, They’d Discriminated You for Being Asian

The president, setting a BAD example, leading the “masses”, to DISCRIMINATE, what the current president here is doing, just like how Trump did it, and, now, Biden is trying to, turn this all around, and yet, the president here, is still, CLUELESS as a “leader”…commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The American president, Biden signed an executive memo against the discriminations of Asian Americans during the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, and prohibited the federal government from using “Chinese virus”, along with other words that might cause the people in America to discriminate, to segregate Asian in the country.  Biden’s move had two levels: first, to put out the blazes of Trump’s racist beliefs; two, to mend the fractures in the American society; if the discrimination can’t be done away with, then, the crack simply, can’t be, patched up.

the us and the them…

and you’re not getting into the group, “red”! Found online

Biden’s “Anti-Discrimination” law, although aimed at turning the Trump government’s wayward behaviors; but, the Taiwanese from across the strait can reflect on how the President, Tsai’s mind is, way too, narrowed.  Since the outbreaks started, the government officials kept calling the virus the “Wuhan virus”; before the virus was rightfully name, this would be fine, because it is easier to differentiate.  But, by mid last February, the WHO formally named the virus “MERS”, while the CDC here still didn’t change what it was called, continued calling it the Wuhan virus.  The awareness to prevent the spread by the Department of Health Welfare & Sanitations continually played on, “the Wuhan virus”, and this sort of a discrimination, is sounding off constantly, and daily into our ears, it’d sounded, quite, cacophonous.

The WHO’s renaming, doing away with the location’s names, occupations, animals by 2015, aimed at reducing the discriminations.  While Tsai’s government claimed itself to be forward in thought, advanced, but, toward the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, refusing to use the more neutralized “MERS”, and calling it “Wuhan”, Chen and the central agencies followed suit, for the sake of being “against China”.  Tsai’s government claimed that Taiwan is able, and more than willing to, become a fitting member of the WHO, but it’d, not backed down on the naming of the virus.  The government only chooses the ideals that fitted to its, needs here.

Comparing to Trumps “China Virus” “Wuhan Pneumonia”, and “Kung-Flu”, Chen’s calling it the “Wuhan Virus” constantly, paled by comparison.  And yet, Trump is a narrow-minded, a character-flawed leader, he’d, abused his power; and yet, Taiwan was more than willing, to become is frontrunner, what’s so proud about that?  What’s worse was that Tsai utilized her support in Trump, and used Trump’s claims, to falsify what democracy was; in actuality, those with the minutest political knowledge knew, that Trump had NO sense of what democracy is, and, Tsai’s government, hiding under the shadows of Trump, apparently, she’d, followed, the WRONG leader.

In Taiwan, the issue of race may not be as complicated as in the America, but the race and the issues regarding China is still, too, sensitive, the Chauvinist of Formosa made other groups feel ill-at-ease.  In recent two years, this showed up even more overtly, in Taiwan, Tsai’s discrimination caused the merchants from Taiwan working in China, the spouses from China.  Including how the Taiwanese merchants’ difficulties of returning back to Taiwan during the outbreaks, as well as toward the women married over from China, the “Mings” who were forced to stay in China, it all showed how the president, OPENLY, discriminate the people, to the point of suppression.  Maybe, Tsai believed that she had a justified reason to be against China, without knowing, that she was, feeding to the discriminations against all Asians, and teaching the citizens to hate too.

And so, the president here, just like Trump, didn’t SET a good example, instead of working together, with EVERYBODY onboard, during times of the outbreak, she’d, used her words, to struck up hatred, to get the people here who are still following her, to DISCRIMINATE against CHINA, and yeah, that, is what we are looking at here, another, Donald Trump, in the form of a FEMALE head of “state”…
