The Rent-a-Pet Program

Let me put on my “salesman” outfit here, wait for it…wait for it…okay, now I’m dressed for the “occasion”…

The Rent-a-Pet program, you’re allowed to, get a firsthand experience of what it would be like, to have a pet around your house, with NO need to commit, until they (the pets) die.

And, I have a feel, that this, would be a program that’ll gain widened popularity in the world, as the modern man’s souls become more and more empty, and, people more often than not are returning home, to an empty house, with absolutely NO source of life there, now, imagine, for one bit, if, you can have someone (fine, it’s a some THING), eager for you to come home, something that’ll welcome you, maybe, even bring you your slippers, why not, but, you’re still NOT sure, if this, is the sort of a long-term commitment that you want to have?  That’s fine too, our program allows you to take a pet home, on a trial basis, and, you don’t even have to pay, for the first two weeks, just provide the food for the pets, and, if, at the end of those two weeks you’re still not wanting to keep the pets we’d lent to you, you can then, bring ‘em all back in, and, we’ll “dispose” of them for ya!

Uh, you’ve GOT to be SHITTING me, right, and, don’t TELL me, that some of you out there are actually, BUYING into THIS sort of shit, and yet, in order to fit to the needs of modern day man, some countries (still NOT naming names here though…) are offering SUCH a BULLSHITTING service to its citizens, can you believe it???

Using the Virginity Test to Establish Morality

This is really SEXIST, from the New York Times that came with today’s Chinese newspapers, written by: J. Cochrane…

JARKARTA, Indonesia—Colonel Sri Rumiati made her career in the Indonesian National Police, but the day she was tested for it, in 1984, is one she would rather forget.

During a mandatory physical examination, a doctor administered a so-called virginity test, inserting two fingers to determine whether her hymen was intact.

“I was not comfortable with the test,” said Colonel Rumiati, who is now a police psychologist.  “The test can be stressful on women and embarrassing.”

It mattered little that the doctor who tested her was a woman.  It felt like a violation, she said, one that does not determine virginity, that has no comparable equivalent for male police recruits and that does not achieve its ostensible goal: evaluating a recruit’s morality.

“You learn about the morality of a candidate from prosocial behavior testing,” or evaluating a person’s actions, she said.  “It’s not about virginity.”

Women who apply to be police officers in Indonesia have been subjected to virginity testing since at least 1965.

But the issue has set off heated debate here since Human-Rights Watch released a report and a video last month with evidence that the police was still in force.

The organization said it had interviewed eight current and former female police officers and applicants in six cities, including two who said they had undergone virginity tests this year.  Married women are not eligible to become police officers.

The National Police chief said last month that female recruits did not undergo virginity tests.  But hours later, two high-ranking National Police officials in Jakarta were quoted by the local news media confirming that the police force conducts the tests.

While failing the virginity does not disqualify a police applicant, she “may get fewer points if her hymen is not intact,” Brigadier General Arthur Tampi told The Jakarta Post.

Local women’s and human rights groups have demanded an end to the practice.  Last year, the head of a local education office in South Sumatra Province suggested conducting virginity tests on high school girls to discourage promiscuity and thwart teenage prostitution.  Thousands of Indonesians took to social media sites to criticize the idea, which was quickly dismissed by national government officials.

Colonel Dede Rahayu, who runs the Police Women’s School in Jakarta, said she had never heard of any of her students or staff members having to undergo the tests.

The policewomen “who said they had that tests didn’t understand what a virginity test is,” she said nothing that all applicants undergo a rectal exam and they may have confused the two.  “Or maybe the want people think they were still virgins when they joined,” she said half in jest.  “A single woman not being a virgin is taboo in Indonesia”.

So, if there’s a need for a woman to undergo such examinations, to solidify HER status, what about men?  Don’t they need to also go through a virginity test too?  Oh wait, you LOSERS don’t have HYMENS like we women do, that can clearly SHOW if you’d had SEX or not, and, this idea of how unwed, single women are eligible to become cops is still way too STUPID, and this had happened, in the modern day world, believe it or don’t!  And, hello, hello, hello, virginity is NO determinant of morality, I mean, you DO realize, that someone CAN be a virgin, and act immorally, right???

A School without the Fences…Would We Still Be Safe the Next Time?

Commentaries, translated…

An elementary school was broken in by a stranger man, not only did he managed to beat up the school teacher, he’d also took a male student to the roof of the school.  The police came to help out after they got a call, and managed to subdue the man, and the students, as well as the instructors were all very scared by this event.

This rare-to-come-by incident posed the issue of school safety, in order to help keep the campuses safe, the teachers, as well as the students must have the sense of danger, and they should NOT ignore the signs of danger that easily, in order to ensure the safety of the students, as well as the school instructors.

For now, there’s a lax in the number of security officers at the elementary schools across the city of Taipei, the originally two members of the security officers that were assigned to each of the schools, due to the simplifying plan of personnel by the city governments, there was NO one to fill the posts, and the schools started hiring from the private sectors, causing the varied income problem, and it’d affected how well the schools and the hired security guards worked together.  The government, in order to save the cash, had sacrificed the safety of the schools, it’s really not worth it.

And, recently, the janitors had been reduced in numbers in the schools, for a school with one-thousand students, there were only two janitor, and, the janitors also had to be responsible for the cooking in the kindergarten levels, along with being the correspondences to the government, and, the number of employees is NOT even half of what the schools had hired.

And the schools, in order to make sure the schools worked well, would have the two guards work at the same time frames, and, had one of these security guards help with the paper works at the offices of the schools.

And so, walking around the school to make sure that it’s safe was deeply affected, and there was a HUGE hole in the security, thus, allow the bad guys to squeeze in.

Lastly, in recent years, the schools across the nations had gotten away with the fences, and, a LOT of schools had fought for lowering the fences, or do away with them completely, and used plants as the fences, but, without the fences, the schools would be in danger, of intruders from the outside.

In order to safeguard the safety of the students and the teachers, the educational managers from the cities, along with the school’s executive officials MUST work together.

The school must give education as it becomes necessary, to up the level of awareness of the students and the teachers, and instill the idea of “keeping the schools safe is everybody’s responsibilities”, to keep a close eye on strangers that show up, and to have the students and the teachers report if they see someone who’s awkward in the schools, and must hold safety conferences regularly, along with have drills.

The increase of safety on campuses, other than the schools that must work hard, there’s also a need for care and concerns from the systems, for instance, the funding, and the personnel, to allow the schools to have the extra money to install surveillance cameras, security equipments, and increase manpower on campus, to reduced the spare time where there would be no one there, to keep the schools safe, and this would up the safety of the schools.

And so, we need more guards to keep our schools safe, but, where DOES the funding come from?  Taxes?  We’re already paying a WHOLE lot, and, this article only poses the problem, without giving a viable solution, and, you still have to admit, that school safety IS a very important matter, I mean, after all, who would feel safe, if the kids’ schools can be entered by just about anyone?

A Man Who Ran Off From an Unsuccessful Rape…Took the Panties, and Was Prosecuted

Yeah, uh, are you FUCKING (no, do NOT pardon me this time!!!) kidding me here??? From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man, Zhu, forcibly pulled down the panties of a woman, and attempted to rape her on the streets, and because the victim’s hollering caused the crowd to come, he’d picked up her underwear, and ran. The D.A. prosecuted him for robbery of her underwear, and attempted rape, but the judge believed that he didn’t pull her panties off to possess it as his own, that it wouldn’t be robbery, and sentenced him to two years based off of the attempted rape charges.

Last year on the midnight of June 29, Zhu was passing by a certain intersection in Taoyuan, saw a woman, who got drunk, walking alone, he got a bad thought, followed her; he grabbed her from behind, then, got in front of her, pushed her down, stripped her panties off, was about to rape her.

The victim kicked him and fought hard, a rider passing by found it to be awkward, started honking his horns for attention, and there was another driver who stopped and offered assistance to the woman; Zhu saw that he wasn’t going to get his way with her, took the woman’s underwear and ran off, couple of days later, he’d tossed the panties away inside the Keelung train station, after the police got a call, they’d reviewed the surveillance camera, and made an arrest.

“After I forcibly removed the victim’s underwear, I’d shoved it into my pockets; and the reason why I took her panties home was because I wanted to smell it, I admit to robbery.” The D.A. used Zhu’s statements, decided, that the victim’s underwear was also considered property, and prosecuted him based off of attempted rape and robbery.

And because in interrogation, Zhu claimed, “I was about to keep touching her pubic area, then, have sex with her, that, was why I’d stripped her underwear off; and the panties felt jammed, half way down, and so, I’d stripped it off completely, and I ran, because someone came by.” The courts, based the attempted rape off of this statement, and that it didn’t constitute as forced robbery, and sentenced him on attempted rape for three years two months, and gave him a free pass for the robbery charge.  Zhu and the D.A. were both dissatisfied with the result, and went for separate appeals, and the High Courts decided, that the charge of robbery didn’t stand up.

And, this, is still clearly, an UNSUCCESFUL R-A-P-E, and, just because you got a bit drunk, and feel somewhat HORNY, that still doesn’t give you the right, to RAPE a woman who was just passing through, does it? Of course N-O-T, and, this woman was still violated through the entire process.

“I Thought You Were Only Interested in a One-Night-Stand”, the Woman Got Angered, and Sued the Man for Rape

From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man, Lai used the cell phone application, “Shake it”, asked a twenty-five year old woman out, and had sex with her, the very next day, the woman texted him to go see the night scenes, he’d “not read the message, and not replied” for six hours, the woman got angered and told him, “You were only looking for a one-night-stand, I’m going to sue you for rape!”  The D.A.’s office in Hsinbei City believed that it was consensual sex, and so, they didn’t prosecute the man.

The thirty-five year old man, Lai at the bottom of January, met a drink store clerk using an application on his cell, the woman agreed to go to Lai’s place in Tucheng, Hsinbei City.

As the woman walked in, Lai’s mother and his younger siblings were all watching television on the first floor, Lai took the woman into his third floor bedroom, they ate, chatted, then, had sex; as the woman got home, she’d texted him, and he’d replied, “Do remember to take the pill.”

The next day at four in the afternoon, the woman texted Lai, “Won’t you take me to watch the night skies?”, at six, “I’m off work now, are you there?  Are you busy?”, which Lai didn’t read.  At nine in the evening, the woman wrote, “You don’t answer my calls, you’re ignoring me!”  “You were only into one-night-stand”, at ten, “I hope you get run over on motorcycle, and walking too!”

The woman saw that Lai had been ignoring her for six whole hours, texted, “I had never intended to sleep with you, but you’d forced me to.”, then, she’d called the police to report it as a rape.

When the D.A. questioned them, Lai claimed that it was consensual, that he never forced her; he said, that he’d been too busy the whole day the next day, didn’t even check his cell, and when he finally got around to it, the woman had already started the process of pressing charges against him.  The D.A. reviewed the conversations records, and took the witnesses from Lai’s house, and discovered, that as the woman left his house, she was properly dressed, and looked comfortable, and that there was NO rape involved.

And so, this woman, because the man she’d given herself to didn’t call her back, she got mad, and SUED him for rape, when it was, consensual sex, are you FUCKING kidding me here?  Just because someone had sex with you and didn’t call you back right away, that still doesn’t give you the right to libel and slander now, does it?  Nope!

An Elderly Woman Was Troubled by Dementia for Fifteen Years, and Her Granddaughter Made Up Her Mind to Crack the Codes

From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The female researcher, Chen who’d found the genetic cause for dementia, is the daughter of the father of hepatic cancer in Taiwan, the researcher from Central Research Agency, Ding-Shing Chen’s daughter, and because her parents were way too busy when she was growing up, she was left, with her older brother, in her grandmother’s care, but, when she was in high school, her grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and, she fell ill, and lived with the illness for fifteen years, then died, seeing how tortured her grandmother was, Chang decided to go into the research of dementia.

Chen recalled, that she and her grandmother were the best of pals, and even in high school, she’d still shared a bed with her grandmother.  Until her first year in high school, her grandmother started buying cabbage from the markets every single day, seemed to have forgotten that she’d just bought some the day before.  Until there is so much cabbage in her house that they’d all become rotten, Chen and her family started realizing that her grandmother had Alzheimer’s Disease.

“It became really hard to communicate with my grandma, she would do some odd things, like carrying an empty plate in front of the television, asking the people in the shows to give her some food.  And she’d also become delusional, and would claim, ‘my child’s missing’, I’d told her that there was NO child, and she’d mumbled to herself, ‘you don’t understand!, she’d become too hard to get along with,” Chen recalled.

Chen went abroad to grad school where she’d learned about proteins, never planned to become a researcher, she smiled and told, “until I’d figured out, that folding up the proteins is related to dementia, it’d finally given me a motive to turn my research into my work—my grandma.”

Chen stated that hopefully they’ll find an ultimate way to diagnose early and eventually, cure dementia, the research result she uncovered now, is merely a small piece of the puzzles.

What’s coincidental, was that the reason she’d gotten into research for a cure in liver cancer was because of her father, and she’d gotten into the research of Alzheimer’s because of her grandmother, the father and daughter’s goals in life is to turn the loss of one’s loved ones into the motivations for their researches.

And so, this, is only a small piece of the puzzle that was found, and sure, there IS a very LONG way to go, but at least, we’re making the progress, and, hopefully, with the discovery of this protein, more cases of dementia can be prevented, but, the technologies are still not yet that advanced, but one day, in the coming future…

Remembered, by the Wars He’d Started

Still just the Q-U-E-E-N (still H-E-R-E too!!!) VOICING her thoughts, her opinions, which “she” is MORE than entitled to H-A-V-E (and yeah, I’m still referring to myself IN the 3rd Person here, and your point is???)…

This, is how his name will go “down” in H-I-S-T-O-R-Y, despite the reforms, and the good things he’d done for his country, he is still remembered, by the wars he’d started.

Remembered, by the wars he’d started, because you don’t hear them talk about people in history in good terms (not usually), you’d only heard the people talk about the bad things that a leader’s done, to mess up the country.

He wanted to leave a name for himself, in his last term, and since he didn’t do NOTHING good worth mentioning, save for RAISING the taxes, which hurt the middle class even M-O-R-E, made false promises, to get him elected or re-elected, he’d decided, to start a WAR overseas, in the “name” of justice, but, it wasn’t for the sake of “justice” at all!

Remembered, by the wars he’d started, because that, is what the constituents are supposed to remember, because the constituents have this way, of BLOCKING everything ELSE out, and focus on the things that IMPACTED their lives directly and the most, and, during HIS term as the leader of the country, he’d started so many wars he couldn’t finish and caused the citizens to suffer, even IF his goal for having the Congress to DECLARE war, is for the purpose of KICK starting this already slowly deteriorating E-C-O-N-O-M-Y…
