Amendments, Changes in Laws

A Collision of Constitutional Rights & Constitutional Values

Shall we, flip for it???  Commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The natives who were caught, hunting the animals were sentenced, and they’d, filed for an amendment, and it’d, sparked up this war between the rights of the natives and the protection of wildlife.  Although the Grand Justice ruled on the number 803 explanation, but from the disappointments of the natives, it’s still not, resolved, perfectly.

The key points of this particular explanation of the constitution lies in the although it’s legal for the natives to use their homemade guns to shoot the animals on the reserves, but, it’s still not enough rights for the natives; other than their culture, the natives used the hunted animals as offerings as well as sharing the catches with their own next-of-kin, but, the hunting of the endangered species is still, illegal.

In this war of hunting culture versus environmentalism protection, the natives believed that there wasn’t any, conflicts of the two, but the culture preservation and the identifying with one’ own people, that’s irreplaceable by the animal protections; while the grand justice stressed that we must, weigh both sides equally, but the natives’ hunting the animals are for their own, consumptions not for any other purposes, and it would still, cause an impact on the wildlife, especially the endangered species here.

It’s not hard to understand the natives’ upset over the ruling, but the meaning of the Grand Justice’s explanation is worth thought too: the justice stated, “the constitution guarantees that the…the natives shall have their rights to hunt as a part of their culture.”, which showed the importance of the laws’ believing the traditions, the cultures of the native people, but at the same time, it’d stated, that the protection of wildlife is, also, a vital value of the constitution.  And, as two laws collide, then, there may not be, the one-hundred-percent, guarantees to be, offered to the sides.

The rights of the natives and the animal protections, should NOT only have the oppositional sides to them.  In actuality, a lot of the foods at the mountain local food shops fitted to, the laws of “self-use” restrictions.  If we can, help more natives understand, that the hunters can be turned into, the protectors of wildlife, then this will, make the forest, the mountains, more beautiful than ever in Taiwan.

illegal, to hunt these animals that are, protected species by the country…photo from online

And so, when culture and wildlife protection collide, which side do we take?  And, can we, keep both sides happy?  Like in the whaling of the Japanese on the seas, they’d hunted just about all the fishes and whales, because they’re, a people, whose primary diets are, fish, and yet, when they go off to the open waters, not their own territories, to hunt, then, there IS, a problem, and, this is similar to this, but, maybe, the government can place limits on the sizes of the wildlife, and, teaching the natives about the conservation of species, to get the people on board, to help out, that way, both sides, win.

The Last Piece of the Puzzle of Prevention Against Sexual Violence: the Stalking-Harassment Laws

Written by the crime prevention majors of Zhongzhen University, call this, an “afterthought” to the events of murders from stalkers that can’t have those whom they were stalking, and resorted to, murder, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The draft of the “stalking-harassment prevention legislation” finally started in the reviewing process in the legislature office here, of the kept written codes, the debate of whether harassment and stalking should be specific to the variations of genders is still, debated upon.  And my views are based off of societal expectation, and the experiences of the Japanese laws.

The stalking-harassment is defined by repeatedly making someone particular uncomfortable, it isn’t, randomly selected, and there are many reasons for why, maybe for money, like in the loan sharks trying to get the debts collected; or maybe, it’s the fame, like the paparazzi tagging along; maybe due to political views differences, for instance, the trolls from online taking over the message boards online; it can be the neighbors, getting at each other’s throats for not having the shared values of how the building’s operations worked.  Of these, the stalking-harassment types from failure to pursue someone, the individual usually is too stubborn to let go, to the point of “if I can’t have you, I shall, destroy you”, and can cause bodily harm, and this is, just like, other forms of crime, plus, the people in this country lacked the knowledge, the awareness of this sort of harassment, stalking, not understood how over-pursuing of someone can cause harassments, and there’s the wayward beliefs of “If I try harder, then, the other person will, love me”, which added to the risks that aren’t on the surfaces to increase greatly.

From the singer, Jam Hsiao’s being harassed by he female fame, the female college student from World Journalism University getting murdered by a man who had a crush on her, to the female store clerk getting abducted and murdered in Pingdong, the common of all of these is how the person fixated wanted to have the individual for her/himself, and, the emotions, the measure these individuals took, with the time that passes, got overboard, and, these individuals lacked the respect for others’ sense of self, gender equality.  These stories surfaces on the newspapers quite a lot, and, the legislation for it was the legislators’ and the groups locally aimed at, and, the behavior is defined as “relating to the genders”, should be more fitting to the expectations of the general public, as for other reasons for stalking (i.e. debt collecting, paparazzi, etc., etc., etc.), these should be based on the severity, and apply the penal codes, or the civil claims.

Japan had set up the laws, using the designs of focal points, and the legislators in Japan would discuss regularly, if there needed to be added rules, we can take from that.  The background for the laws against stalking getting written and signed was because a female college student getting murdered by her boyfriend, the “Takigawa Jiken” (in this country, there was the geek king, Chang’s murdering his ex, and thus, the 63-1 of domestic violence prevention was added on, the “horrid lover rule”, as it was known as), and, set the details up as “to fulfill the desires of loving someone, the hatred that came when these feelings are, reciprocated”, hoping, that these things can have the minimal effect to the citizens in this country, to prevent the labor union marches, the civic marches, the media press getting the stories, from being restricted.  Our country’s rule of “relating to gender” design, this included the revenging behaviors, or sextortion, and, it’s wider in protection rules compare to the Japanese rules, and, there can be the added lengthening of the period of time (Japanese set it as five-years).

As the legislators worked hard over the years, the anti-stalking law finally started, taking shape, this was, nothing easy; and, this signing the drafts into legislation should help the public understand more about stalking, harassment, and the crimes of violence like these, to show that the government is serious, on ending these acts of violence for good.

And so, this is still, in the wordings of things, you need to specify the rules, every word, that’s to be followed needed to be, written down, and, normally, until someone DIES from an attack by someone who’s fixated on the victims, these sorts of laws just, won’t come into place, and this is still, hindsight!

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 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!

The Prevalence of Mass Shootings in U.S. the Resolve of Guns without Solutions in America

Yeah, uh, BLAME it on the SECOND AMENDMENT, and all you, NRA fanatics here!!!  Off of the Front Page Section, translated…

On the twenty-second, a large-scale massacre happened at a Colorado supermarket, resulting in at least TEN dead, this was the SEVENTH larger-scaled massacre so far this year.

This was also, the SECOND large scale massacre that got the world’s attention in America in a week’s time.  The massage parlor shootings on the sixteenth of this month in Atlanta, Georgia by the suspect, Long, of the eight who’d died, six were, Asian females, and this had caused the protests to happen across America with the Asians in the community marching in protest against hate crimes.

Based off of USA Today, Associated Press, and the data collected by Northeastern University, the supermarket shooting in Colorado is the SEVENTH large scale massacre since the start of this year.  The database defined the massacres as other than the shooters, there are more than four deaths.

CNN reported, in this past week, there were large-scale massacres every single day, other than the eight deaths in the Atlanta shooting, Stockton, California, Houston and Dallas of Texas, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the past few days, there were the massacres of more than five deaths ongoing, thankfully, those who were shot were mostly, not fatally wounded, only two had died.

In the past decade, within a hundred kilometers radius, of where the massacres at Round Rock, Colorado, there were the multiple shocking murders locally.  Back in 1999, Columbine High School which was only fifty-kilometers away, had the massacres of a total of fifteen fatalities, and twenty-four wounded including the two shooters.  In 2012, a man took a gun into the theatre as the Batman Premiere was showing, and started shooting at random, causing twelve deaths, seventy wounded.

“We the People”…WANT GUNS!!!

In America, gun is too easily accessible, this is one of the primary reasons for these larger-scale massacres.  The Washington Post reported, the shooter, Long of the Atlanta Massage Parlor massacre picked up a gun at the gun shop on the day he started on his shooting rampage, and, the background checks at the arms shop were only formalities, there’s no waiting to confirm if the licenses were valid, gun is given out by the store, and he took it, and headed straight to the massage parlor.

On the twenty-third, the Senate held an emergency hearting, discussing the two large-scale shootings that happened in the week, along with the matters of gun control.  The group that demanded a tougher law on gun ownership pointed out, that from 2009 to date there’d been, 246 cases of large-scale shootings, in just Colorado, on average, there are 805 people who’d died from gun violence per year.

And yet, the second amendment protected the rights of citizens from owning guns, and whenever the subject of gun control came up for discussion in the Congress, the Republicans who are in support of the Second Amendment Rights would fight it, even if the polls showed, that the supporters of both parties are onboard with the gun control laws now.

And so, this, became, a NATIONAL matter, and yeah, it is, the American citizens’ rights to OWN arms, sure, but, sometimes, guns are too easily got, you don’t even need to get thoroughly checked for any violent crimes records, you just need to get that license, which is bought with money, and you can, own one, and, you’re still, in support of your, SECOND Amendment rights?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the “Stand-Your-Grounds” law, but, guns are too easily accessible in America, which is precisely WHY, mass shootings are happening all over the country right now.

Obstruction of Spousal Rights: the Harder the Individual Cheated, the More the Person’s Made to Pay in Civil Court

That ought to, TEACH you, mother FUCKING cheats, to BEHAVE your selves out there all right!  HARSHER punishment for infidelity here, protecting the rights of your spouses!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Last year, as the decriminalization of adultery was, signed into law, the payments in the civil courts suits became, the LAST line of defense for protecting spousal rights.  Recently, there was the famous married sports figure having been found with an unknown male out, and the rented stay of a member of the city representatives, the legal realms pointed out, that although there’s NO solid proof of adultery, but the behaviors had, breached the “rights of the spouses”  And, sorting through the related verdicts of the courts for the past two years, the more severe these breaches in spousal rights were, the amounts are higher, from thousands of dollars to millions of dollars.

In the past, on the matter of the couple’s handling cheating, because there’s a more severe mandate for what constitutes as “adultery”, so long as there are no solid evidence to prove that sexual intercourse took place, it would be, quite, difficult, for the charges of adultery to stick; as the decriminalization of adultery signed into law, the adulterers won’t get charged criminally, but, because of the civil laws protected the citizens, there are the clauses of the law, the party who was cheated on can seek out payment from the civil front.

The attorney, Wang stated, that the definition of “spousal rights” legally meant the rights protected by the law based off of ethics, of family; once one of the spouses crossed that line, then, the other party can sue the cheating party on the civil front for payment.

Based off of the verdict inquiry systems of the courts, in recent years, there was a wife who’d found her husband, flirting on LINE, his got sued, and the courts made him pay $70,000N.T.s; the wife found to have hugged and kissed a male coworker, the husband received the payments of $160,000N.T.s; the wife found the husband to have sexually illicit texts on LINE, with the photos, paid $200,000N.T.s; the husband cheated on the wife with a female employee for seven years, had twins with the female employees, the wife was paid over millions of dollars.

And this, is only, on the legal fronts, how about, the EMOTIONAL distress, the betrayals of the one getting cheated on, NO amount is, going to EVER, make UP for that, because the damage’s done already, and, there’s, just NO way that anybody, can help you make up for that, NOT even if this brand new “amendment” that enforces HARSHER punishments for the CHEATING parties, so this is just, a bullshitting law that THINKS that it can, protect spousal rights, but it can’t, not really!

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!

Looking the Other Way, is What Got Us Where We Are Today

Observation of how Trump refused to turn over power, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A few years ago, a group of scholars including the Harvard Professor, Cass Sunstein warned, that there might be a fascist U.S. president, the Trump fans called them paranoid freedomists.

At the presidential election last year, the writer, Tony Schwartz who wrote Trump’s, “The Art of the Deal” prophesied, that if Trump lost the election, he will get his supporters and followers to violently turn over the results of the election, the Trump fans laughed and made fun of him for being paranoid freedomist too.

But, these two prophecies made by the “paranoid freedomists” both came true.  In the four year term that Trump’s had, he’d become like a dictator, he’d not drained the swamps of D.C., but the oxygen of the democracy of the U.S.; the Trump fans, in his directing them to, urging them to, took Capitol Hill, and it’d made the United State turned into a banana republic overnight.

Reasonably, the American democracy could NOT allow a FACIST take control of the country that long, nor would it allow for an uprising, a coup d’état of sorts; but, how could Trump do as he pleased for four whole years?  And, how come, the riots, the takeover over of governments of third-world nations is currently, happening, in U.S.?  The New York Times’ columnist, Cruman gave us the answer, “We’d indulged him too long!”

Indulging is the same as quietly consenting, and encouraging, it’s also, the politician’s dope.  In the past, the people put up with Trump’s bad ways: he’d shamed women constantly, the people looked the other way; discriminated against minorities and Muslims, people allowed for it; firing the members of his own cabinets, the people allowed for that too; used the attacks to defame the media press, the people looked the other way; not opening his assets to public records, evading taxes, people of the States had, looked, the other way; privately funding his own campaigns from Russia, people chose to ignore; lied habitually, people didn’t stop him from it; along with, an assortments of other bad behaviors that the American public chose NOT to acknowledge.

Letting Trump slide is equivalent to rationalizing all of his mistakes.  He is a pathological liar, while those who’d allowed him to lie constantly told, that he was telling, an alternative form of the truth; he’d taken the U.S. out of world organizations, those who supported him said it was “to make America great again!”; he’d fired the members of his own cabinet, and obstructed the justice systems, his supporter said he was “bringing the deepest conspiracies of the government out into the open.”

People kept allowing Trump to do what he wanted to, and he’d not gotten punished for it, and, for the followers who saw him as Messiah, they’d, naturally, followed his lead.  The white supremacy groups started, getting bigger locally, QAnon and other extreme right groups kept spreading the conspiracy theories without any solid proof, and, the militia groups that stemmed from these took guns into the state congress of Michigan to protest, even made plans to kidnap the Democratic governor; Krugman described these two incidents in Michigan as a rehearsal for Trump fans’ assault on the Capitol.

Of course, the members of the Republican congress also allowed Trump to become the “Almighty”.  The party system of congress of U.S. worked in the checks and balances, but of late, the Republican became Trump’s private machine for the past four years, at his, disposal; as the impeachment call of Trump was being discussed, all the Republicans voted against his impeachment, and even AS the Trump fans took down Capitol Hill, there were still eight members of the Senate, along with 139 representatives of the House who’d, voted against his impeachment.  As the Vice President, Pence and the majority leader, severed it off with Trump before the votes, but they’d, allowed Trump to do as he pleased for FOUR whole years, they’re, responsible for what is happening now; as for those White House staff members, and members of Trump’s cabinet who’d severed the ties by quitting, they were only, trying, to save themselves before the big ship sank, and, at that last moment, they’d, finally realized that they were on the wrong side, and it’s, already, too late.

Tolerating Trump is what led to this, it’s also what made the fascisms, take over the American democracy, “if you think after Biden took office at the White House, all those rioters would vanish, then, you must be, delusional!”, that, is what Krugman is most worried about, “Then, what can we do?  It’s time, to stop those, fascists, stop, tolerating them now!”, this was the summation of Krugman’s observation over the last four years as Trump acted as the president of the U.S.; and to the rest of the democracies in the world, the falling, the destruction of American democracy showed, “if this can happen in the U.S., it can happen, anywhere else too!”

And, absolute power equals absolute abuse, is what this showed, now that Trump’s been voted out of the office, he didn’t want to leave, and so, he’d, used the power of the masses, to do his bidding for him, and, as the rioters, take over Capitol Hill, the Congress too, U.S. is no longer, a democracy, because for the PAST four years, the people allowed a FACIST DICTATOR (like Mussolini, or Hirohito) to rule them, and now, this FACIST DICTATOR got a sweet taste of what power gave to him, of course he wasn’t, going to, let it go that easily…

Another Beast, Hungry for Power

Commentaries on how too much power given to the political party in power right now, the DDP, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Examination Department posted its “Human Rights Committee Advocates” legislation drafts, and the head recruit of DDP, Ke was angered by the draft of the legislature, believed that it’s the minority making a huge mess for the majority of the legislators.  Ke’s reason being: the ten members of the human rights committee are all members of the legislature, there’s no need to add a new amendment for these ten people, that their duties and rights should be written in the general legislations.

And, whether or not Ke has the right to object to this, he had a right reason, to go off.  The human rights committee is NOT some complex, or larger-scale system, it only consisted of just TEN members, who are a part of the examination committee, but they’d, decided, to give themselves a new set of rules to abide by, do they want to make more trouble for the legislature?

Yet, the examination department’s appetite was too huge, and, they’d asked the committee for the right to interpret the legislation as they wish to, and, expected the government facilities, the local branches to explain what they checked for everything that they’re, checking.  The former was criticized by the legislative department as “finding a way around the written law”; the latter, breaching of the five basic rights.  Including how this rule would allow the government sectors to “dip” their hands into the privately owned facilities, this left many doubts.

everyone who disagrees, gets the BARRELS! Clip Art found online

Simply stated, all of these committee members, used the claims of “human rights”, believed that they have the power to go and check any and everything, that nobody can object, can stop them from doing so.  The problem being, Taiwan is a country of law, and, we already, have separate laws for everything regarding the rights of the citizens already, do we, really, need another “emperor” unit to oversee the areas of human rights?  If this “emperor” unit believed itself to be the supreme law of the land, then, the human rights of the Taiwanese citizens may be damaged even more, instead of, being protected.

And now, the systems operating independently of party politics are reduced, and lacked the faith from the general public, we do NOT need one more beast of power, wearing the mask of “human rights”.

And so, this, is how the DDP is using ITS power now, to dip into everything, in the name of the citizens’ rights, they’re actually, enslaving the people here, there’s now, only the GREEN (DDP-supportive) T.V. stations on T.V., and the newspaper media would be next, and, all of those papers that don’t agree with the legislations passed by the DDP, will get, taken off the store shelves too I’m sure, and, this is WAY, WAY, WAY worse than COMMUNIST rule!  And the people can’t do ANYTHING about it…

The Department of Education Shall NOT Give Up on Any Child

The government’s not well-thought-out ideals of reforms in education here, off of the Front Page Sections, by a university professor, translated…

When I was in school, elementary years and middle schools are mandatory education, and this sort of making education available should be commended, because even for the kids from the poverty stricken backgrounds, they get the chance to get educated.  But what we can’t deny is, a lot of the children didn’t get educated enough.  Some had entered into the universities, and still can’t write out all twenty-six of the English alphabets.  Some had entered into high school, and still can’t do the addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division of fractions.  And there are those in high school who can’t understand the most basics of English words such as: not, at, in, with, there, who, when, etc., etc., etc.

For students who are on this level, staying in school getting an education, it’s, a waste of time.  For the country, it’s, a waste of money.  The kids don’t have the basic levels of education, and they’d, lost their competitive edge on the most fundamental levels, and it’s more than likely, that they will be on government assistance in the futures.  This is painful for the individuals, but even more a heavy burden for our country.

We need to track back to the systems of education in the elementary school years.  There’s no holding a child back in the elementary years, as the child falls behind in the first grade, and after that, the kid just sits and can’t understand what the instructors saying in the class, but all the way, they still, get higher in the grade years, and there’s nothing that teachers can do about this.

Don’t know when it was, that this country did away with holding the children back a grade, and, this is out of kindness, with the goal of helping the children keep their senses of dignity, and hoped, that children can somehow, be interested in learning.  A motto for the education reforms is “Happy & learning” it’s from the same beliefs.  But, this sort of not watching the gates, it’s actually, harming the students, because as they found, that they can’t understand anything, they can’t possibly have an interest in learning, and would lose faith, self-confidence over their own futures, and start giving up on themselves.  Some of the kids dropped out of middle school, all because they can’t make the grades.  And the government’s way, is giving up on the students.

We need to know, that only a tiny portion of kids hated studying.  I have the experiences myself, that so long as the instructors are compassionate, and patient, then, the child CAN, learn.

Maybe, we won’t go back to holding students back a grade, but we can’t, give up on the students either.  The first thing that needed to get tackled is, to set up a fundamental curriculum for the classes in the elementary school levels.  Meaning, that as the children is in the first grade, they should be mastering the skillset during that grade level, the government should set it up in black and white, same for all other courses too.  With this basics of curricula, all the teachers across the country should be more in tune with whether or not the students are matching up to the requirements of the governments.  Of course, children are smart in different ways, some kids may be slower to learn, and the elementary years definitely need to device separate education plans for the children.  Setting up of individualized education plans is a written rule in the legislation regarding education, but the sad part is, now, it’s no longer, used.

We don’t need to go back to the ways of keeping a child back a grade, but we need to set up the different materials to teach the students with varied learning styles.  The Department of Education should ensure that every normal child can learn the fundamentals well.   I hope that everybody can understand, that I’m NOT asking the government to guarantee that every child makes the good grades, I just believe, that the government should NOT give up on any child.

And so, this, is under the current system of education reform, because this country tries to follow the methods that hard worked for the western countries, without realizing, that hey, this is a country on its own, and what works elsewhere, may NOT work here, and so, the system of education is still, not fully developed, and that’s why the students are, not learning what they needed to succeed in their lives in the futures.
