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.

The Parents & the School Instructors Not on the Same Page on Using the Surveys to Stop Bullying

How do you think conducting a SURVEY can end bullying in school, huh???  I…dunno!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Department of Education amended the wording of the Anti-Bullying Laws in July for the schools from “student to student” to “Principal, teachers and students to students”, and mandated the schools needed to conduct surveys regularly for the students.  The Head of Department of Education held a press conference on the matter, stated that the definition of bullying isn’t clear cut enough, the students may misinterpret discipline into bullying, and the schools get turned into the prison system, and the teachers are, teaching within the jail cells of wording correctly.  But the parent groups believed, that the law will help improve the situation of the victims’ fearing to speak out, that it can, help prevent bullying in school.

The department pointed out, this legislation will mandate that all middle schools, fifth, sixth grade classes in the elementary do a survey of life on campus every April of each year, and follow up on the cases to give the needed counseling measures.  And the related statistics will be sent to the managing units of education and the Department of Education to review over.

Half of the survey is on the bullying of students by peers, and the other half is on the teachers bullying the students.  The questions included, “the teacher had told other students to pick on me”  “The teacher had taken a mean tone with me, or the teachers mocked me”, “I was publicly humiliated by the instructor in front of everyone”.  And all of these questions are quite vague, it’d affected the ruling of the teachers in the classrooms, and it can, make the instructors live in fear.

The C.E.O. of the Parenting League, Peng advocated this amendment, she’d stated, that there’s an unequal distribution of power between the students and teachers, the questionnaire can be used as a voice for the students, as the children come face to face with trouble, we can, offer our help to them immediately.  And even if the students are exaggerating in their claims, the teams of investigators can differentiate between discipline and bullying, to not hurt the instructors’ right to work.  She’d also suggested to the Department of Education to set up the rules, to file the questionnaires into the computer, and using the data on a grander scale, to prevent bullying in school.

And so, you can see, how this can be, problematic, right?  I mean, these are teenagers, and you know these teens have the tendencies to take everything too serious, like how they would interpret things too personally, even IF it wasn’t directed against them as people, and so, under this system, I imagine, that a TON of teachers would get called into the Department of Education, for reviews of their teaching qualifications, and yet, this, is what the government is currently doing, because they want these children to have a voice, to have more right, to decide how they’re being taught.  They believe this is a step toward democracy, but it’s actually N-O-T!  The teachers’ jobs are hard enough, and now, they risk getting reviewed by the board of whatever, for getting LOUD when the classroom get too loud, uh, yeah, this is when democracy turned into, demoCRAZY!!!

“You Can’t Learn How to be a Police Officer in the Classrooms”

After the theories, you also, need the applications, the HANDS-on experiences, to have the full training!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The police academy focuses the trainings on safety and enforcing the laws, and yet, the officers getting killed on duty are still, very frequent, a lot of the officers believed, that police officers work in a high pressure background, that “Doing things by the book” couldn’t subdue the suspects, or meet the demands of their quotas; there’s a huge gap between reality and what the trainings taught them in the classrooms.

Last August, the officer from Hsinbei City, Shue chased after a suspicious motorist out on his scooter, and rammed into the suspect, and died on the job.  This April, the police in Yunlin rode out on a patrol car to chase down the suspects who have drug priors, they impacted, and four officers were, injured.

In recent years, there’s the calls for NOT getting into car chases by the police, to tail behind the suspects at a safe distance, to call for backup, and a lot of the entry level officers laughed at these rules for being “from the ivory towers”, and suspected that the superiors demanded the outcomes of drug busts, the weapon busts, and if they don’t stop all the suspects how will they make the quotas.

But, being overt in pursuing the suspects can cause the officers to lose their lives, even injuring bystanders.  In March, the Taoyuan Police stopped a drunk driver, and the driver rammed the car toward the police, the police fired five shots to stop him, and accidentally, killed a female passenger on the backseat.

The senior officers told, that the police work is highly dangerous, the environment can change in a split second, and all the experienced officers all struggled between considerations of how much forces to use, let alone those who are just fresh out of the police academies; street smarts is what they’d rely on in working on the police forces, not the book smarts, it takes more than passing the exams to become a police officer.

In recent years, there had been many cases of police and civilian confrontations, and the deaths are still rising, the police department is now, paying more attention to the safety of the officers on duty, the suspects, the cases, other than adding the softer communication methods course in the academy, they’d also set up ten interactive shooting ranges with the virtual reality scenarios, the officers or the students will choose which to use in the numerous situations, the pepper sprays, the stick, or the guns.

Currently, the courses also required the trainees to rehearse the pulling the cars over for checks, to break up a gathering crowd, traffic accidents, and other more practical situations, so during school, these police trainees would have a sense of how to enforce the laws more safely.

And so, due to the influx of deaths during the job, the police forces here are, rethinking the measures of training, and helping to instill in the officers, that safety should come first, the pursuits of suspects comes second.

The Female Army Officer in the Navy Slept with Her Superior, as Adultery Was Decriminalized, the Charges Were Dropped Against Her

Due to how the laws are changed here on matters of adultery, she’d not gotten, ANY jail time, but she still needed to pay for the emotional distress that she’d caused her superior’s wife!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

When a woman, Kao was serving her armed service terms on the Navy Ships, she had sex with a married male officer, Su, and her other service mates taped it.  Su’s wife sued Kao for obstruction of family, Kao was originally given a four months sentence, in the process of the appeals, the Grand Justice announced the nullification of adultery being a criminal act, the Collectivist Courts tossed the original verdict, and found Kao not guilty of the charges.  Su’s wife sued her in the civil front, and, Kao is mandated to pay the Su’s wife $900,000N.T.s.

After the incident, the Navy took both off their duties on “differentiation of sex”, and “the rules regarding the disciplines of Navy”; both had left the Navy now.

The verdict pointed out, Su and Kao served on the same ship together, Kao knew that Su was already married, from August of 2018 to May of 2019, she’d still had sex with him twenty times in the hotels of the city of Kaohsiung, the bed-and-breakfast in Suao, along with on the battleship, parked at Keelung Harbor too.

As a radar sergeant noted this, on March 29th of last year, he placed a cell phone in the floor of the office, and turned the lens toward the desk, turned on the video recording function, then, used the mask to cover up the cell phone, captured the footages of Su and Kao having sex together.

As the sergeant got his cell phone back, he’d cut the footages into two films, last May, he’d passed the footages out to many of the servicepersons on the ship to see.  As Kao and Su learned, they’d reported the matter to the superiors, the sergeant was found guilty of obstruction of secret, and invasion of privacy, sentenced to eight months.

Su’s wife in May last year received a copy of the footage as well, and sued Kao.  Kao confessed to it, the Keelung District Court used a simplified verdict.  Kao and Su had sexual intercourse twenty times, both sentenced to two months in prison each, and are to serve a total of four years in prison, and on probation for five years.

Kao fought for an appeal, the grand justice this year cited how the laws of adultery had become null and void this year in May, and retracted the verdict of the original suit, and the charges were, dropped.

Yeah uh, this, is what the “new” law did, it helps these ADULTERERS get away with what they did, and that’s just not fair, because by decriminalizing adultery, that means, that as the spouses of these CHEATERS, there’s, NOTHING we can do, to put an end to their, bad behaviors, and the law did NOT protect the “victims”, in these cases, the spouses, here…

An Accidental Father

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

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

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

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

查看來源圖片this???  photo from online

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

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

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

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

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

or this…photo from online

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And then?

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

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

Is Democracy Totally, on the, Collapse in the World?

Commentaries about how democracy is actually, demoCRAZY here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The top two headlines; from a day ago, all the major newspapers are reporting on how the former president, Lee, “Mr. Democracy” passed; the following day, almost all the major papers are reporting on how the five former and current legislators had, taken the bribes.  Thirty years ago, the former president, Lee in order to let the more experienced representative to take his place, to reform the legislatures, he’d become noted as “Mr. Democracy”.  But, thirty years after the development of this democracy, the key lawmakers of the major parties were found to have taken the bribes from the enterprises, and this showed, how democracy doesn’t mean getting the citizens in directly voting for the president, it’d clearly, shown us, that it’s, too difficult a task, for the politics of democracy to head down the right tracks.

Four years ago, after Trump was elected as president, his methods of ruling the country, using his awful, wayward speeches and behaviors, tearing America apart, it’d made people started doubting democracy.  Taiwan followed closely behind too, these few elected representatives of the people, are a verification of, just that.

Actually, there’s, the corruptive characteristics of democracy.  Democracy is based off of majority ruling.  But, everybody neglected to note: all the major decisions, all involved the assignments of benefits; and, there is, a “cost of the deal” in every single decision.  What is meant by “cost of the deal” is how we needed to, compromise, in order, to reach an agreement; and the more people are involved, the bigger space we’ll need, and, as the number of participants increased to hundreds, thousands, even, millions, it would be next to impossible, to find a place to have all the people gather, let alone, having these participants find a time they’re all, available, and how they’re to, reach, an agreement on everything it’s even, harder still.  And the high price that we’re paying, is, the cost of a democratic, government.

And based off of this, democracy happens, at too high a cost, and yet, people are still pursuing it, blindly, thinking that if they cast a vote, then, their governments are, democratic, without realizing, those lawmakers are, manipulating the masses, by using the ambiguous wordings, to confuse the voters (like this last election I voted in, with the various issues of same-sex marriages, sex ed in the elementary years, etc., etc., etc.), and, this is, a test of the citizens ability to, think critically, but, mostly, when it comes to the votes, we let our emotions lead the way, instead of our heads, and that is precisely why, the world is, headed toward H-E-L-L!!!

The American Secretary of Defense May be FIRED for Defying Trump on His Call to Draw Back the National Guards on the Marches

“You’re FIRED!!!”, no, we’re still, not “tuning in” to, The Apprentice, it’s how the current AMERICAN president (and no, still did NOT vote in that LAST election!!!) is currently doing!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The American President, Trump Stated, that if the Protests Get Out of Control, He Will Sent the National Guards Out.  The Secretary of Defense, Esper strongly Advised Against this on the Third, stated that He isn’t in Support of the Currently Enlisted Servicemen and Women to Help Keep the Peace, He’d, Talked BACK to the President Openly.  The New York Times reported, that Trump was Furious over Esper’s Words, and this also showed, how Trump’s Using Force, had Caused Chaos in the U.S. Military.

The New York Times reported, that the high up level officials of the D.O.D. worried, that sending the servicemen and women out onto the streets would lead U.S. into a state of martial law.  Asper stated openly, that he was, against sending the troops out, to dissipate the protesters, that only under extreme circumstances, will the currently enlisted servicemen and women be called to duty, “We are not in that condition right now!”

After the press conference by Esper, the D.O.D. immediately called back the 1,600 troops.  But, after Esper went to the White House for a conference, he’d, cancelled the order for the troops to be, sent away, the troops were standing by.  The New York Times quoted the reports from White House officials, Trump grilled Esper in the White House.

Members of the press asked, that as Esper spoke up against the president’s using the riot laws, did he lose the trust of the president, McEnany stated, that the president has “absolute power”, to use the law, to keep the peace, that the U.S. will NOT tolerate the burning of churches, the police forces getting SHOT at, the shops getting broken into, this is the power of the president, and tools at his, disposal, but currently, he has, no plans of imploring such measures, because after the National Guards stationed in, D.C.’s safety improved.

Based off of CNN, Esper’s behaviors had already, displeased Trump and the head of National Security, O’Brien; actually, there’s been tension between the Pentagon and the White House, because Trump didn’t weigh Esper’s opinions enough, the head of the D.O.D. didn’t have actual power, and on the matter of defense, Esper had to compete with the secretary of state, Pompeo for power.

In Minnesota, the four former police officers who’d killed Floyd were all prosecuted and indicted on the third by the Minnesota attorney general, Ellison, the primary suspect, Chauvin’s crimes were elevated to “Second Degree Murder”, while the other three members of the police force are charged with “aiding and abetting second degree murder”.

The riots are still ongoing in the U.S., there are the national guards, the servicemen in camouflage on the streets of D.C., the cases of robbery in New York on the rise.  But, mostly, around the U.S., the protests had returned back to peaceful, and there’s, a reduction of confrontations compared to days ago now.

And so, this, is how Trump did NOT have enough leadership ability, and, it also showed, how Trump would NOT allow for anyone who has, a different opinion than his own, he just, FIRE them, take them out of his, cabinet, and this, is what’s, currently, happening in one of the, “freest” countries in the world.
