As Twenty-One More Students & Teachers are Dead Due to Shooting, the Matters of Gun Control in America is Still, Unresolved

Despite how many shootings there’d already been, there’s still NO gun control laws being signed by the U.S., because the citizens believe firmly, their rights to bear arms, is way more important, the how these dangerous weapons are causing the lives to die off left and right, why the gun control laws can’t be passed, in the U.S., despite how many shootings there’d been already, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

May 14th, 2022, an eighteen year old opened fire at a super market in Buffalo, causing ten fatalities, three wounded, and during the process of his assault, he’d streamed it live.

On May 24th, 2022, another eighteen-year-old Texas teen first gunned down his own grandmother, then, took the AR-15 assault rifle to a nearby elementary school and opened fire on the random students, causing the fatalities of two instructors, nineteen students, with eighteen more wounded.

Based off of the news report on June 2nd of the Washington Post, it’d only been five months into 2022, there’d been more than 250 large scale massacres, with more than four wounded, not counting the shooters.  On average, there’d been no less than four massacres, this showed the severity of the problem.

The problem is not just severe, it’d worsened with time too.  Prior to 2018, the yearly massacre hadn’t exceeded four hundred cases.  In 2019, there’d been 417 cases, 611 cases in 2020, by 2021, there were, a total of seven hundred.  What I observed, is how the political systems of the U.S., is responding to this problem that’s increased by severity by the year.

If you all watched the news lately, the senators from both parties are now, negotiating the laws of gun control, and they would have the means to get the amendment passed from the shooting deaths of the nineteen elementary age students in Texas.  But ten years prior, the Hook Elementary School in Connecticut also had twenty elementary students who’d died in a shooting, back then, the public opinions are also supportive of the passing of a gun control bill, but the bill still, didn’t pass.  The U.S. had been in the vicious cycle of shooting, mourning for the deaths, evaluation of the problem, drafting up the bills for gun control, not passing enough votes, for awhile now.

For many years, gun control had been an issue of debate that separated the politics.  The NRA being one of the strongest forces of supporting the right to bear arms, stated how it is the citizens’ rights to bear arms.  They have the political funding, and supporters, and, in election time, they can easily sway the votes.  And, a lot of the politicians’ political careers are, led by the N.R.A.

For instance, after the shooting in the supermarket in Buffalo, New York, a local senator of the Republican Party, Chris Jacobs supported a stricter gun control law, to ban the sales of massive assault weapons, to lower the number of bullets per casing being sold, and increasing the age of purchase of semi-automatic weapons to twenty-one, etc., etc., etc., which started his own party’s more conservative members on him, this made Jacobs, who would’ve succeeded in winning another term to retire at the age of fifty-five, to not seek out re-election, because he knew what faced him will be the “funding of the interest groups, and the untrue negative messages on him that will attack his credibility.

In actuality, the majority of Americans are FOR a stricter gun control laws, especially after the massive death of the random shootings.  I also saw the recent U.S. T.V. reporter, interviewing the host of the gun shows, and they are all for a stricter gun control laws.  But, all of these public opinions, can’t get turned into actual gun control laws in the end.

One reason, is that their passionate cause can’t continue, while it takes time, for the bills to get passed.  And, after at least months of negotiating, the people’s opinions are replaced, by other items on the to do list.  Oni the other hand, the public opinions are a generalized result, but, the election, especially the primaries, are participated, and led by the few political fanatics, which is why there’s this sharp difference, of how they usually don’t reflect the opinions of the public.  And so, the political system of the U.S., can’t find a working solution to this repeated major threat to society.

Not only the U.S., but all the political systems in all countries in the world, may not be able to resolve the long-term issues of the internal affairs of the countries.  The core of the problem rests in how strong the determinations of the people are, how much time, energies, are the locals willing to put in, to show their concerns toward these, varied, issues.  In any systems of politics, most of the people are bystanders, allowing the chosen few to decide on an issue.  We wish that the American will find a way that works best for them, to resolve the problems, and we all need to, be more passionate on the issues regarding the functioning of all of our, separate, countries.

And so, this is why and how the gun control laws, or any other laws have a problem, passing, because of these lobbyists, special interest groups, that are, funding the campaigns of the officials in office, and, surely enough, as those officials who have the right and the abilities to make the changes accepted the moneys, of course they’re all going to do what their sponsors told them to, because that, is how it works.

Biden’s Worse than Tsai

On how authoritarianism works well, in keeping our gas costs down, while a free country like the U.S. is experiencing the highest costs in gasoline right now, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

There’s an eighty-eight percent of rate of inflation in the U.S. right now, the cost of gas skyrocketed, and people are screaming out in pain now.  Biden had asked the gasoline industry manufacturers to produce more, to increase the supply, to lower the costs, and he got the replies of, “We can’t!”, and the industry called Biden out that it was his own, “mistakes in the policies” that’s caused this hike in price, the shortages in supplies.

U.S. produces its own gasoline, and is too far from the warzones of Ukraine and Russia, and kept demanding that all the other countries to isolate Russia; and yet, the U.S. had been tried by the hiking up of oil costs, with Biden not known how to resolve this.  This is confusing to us, the Taiwanese.  We have to import ninety-eight-percent of energies we needed, with the continued hike in cost of international gas prices, and yet, Taiwan isn’t, pressured by the costs of gas.  What’s odder is, China Gasoline had lost up to eighty billion dollars to date, and it’d continued for the eighth week, announcing the lowering by ten cents, fifty cents in prices, is that too weird, or what!

Biden seemingly was able to get the rest of the world to do what he wanted them to, and yet, he couldn’t, get the gasoline providers in the U.S. to lower the prices; and on this, he’d paled by comparison to Tsai.  Tsai, the president, only need to glare, then, the department of economics dips its hands into the oil prices, to stop the drop of prices, to turn it to rise back up.  What’s magical, is that the gasoline in the U.S. is owned privately, and only goes with the flows of the market values; while our petroleum is owned and operated by the government, whatever the government says, goes.  As for why the privately owned, Formosa Petrochemical followed the government’s means, perhaps, the company knew, that the blackmail of the politics is simply too hard to, defy!

The American gas company operators earns a ton of money, but they’d still wanted more, and stated, that Biden’s reducing carbon emissions, and increasing the production of gasoline is ambiguous.  While, China Petro is hanging on a thread, and, it would rather die, than to hike up the costs, how amazing it followed our government’s orders!  On this point, Biden should invite Tsai to the White House, and ask her, how she was able to, silence the mouths of the large monster of inflation, and that giant crocodile of gasoline costs.

And so, this, is on how odd it is, how American, being, a major oil production country, and its gas costs are hiking up higher right now by the minutes, while in Taiwan, we aren’t, and yet, our gas prices are, low, it’s really weird, isn’t it?

Not really, if you examined how the details of how these things functioned, then, you can, trace the roots to how and why, the gas costs are stabilized here in this country, because DDP and Tsai had, dipped their, filthy little fingers into everything, to KEEP the costs of operations at an all-time low here.

The Young Memory House, “Can’t Keep Our Memories Intact, But Can Keep the Love Flowing”

A place that’s set up, to offer the help, the support that these families with patients of early onset dementia needed, and it also, allow these patients with early onset dementia, to keep on contributing in their own means, their own, ways too, off of the Newspapers, translated…

The Stories of the Lives of Those Diagnosed with Early Onset Dementia

The day I’d arrived at Young Coffee, the servers were Chiu and Wu.

Chiu was interactive with the customers, “First time here?  Do you like it here?” as the servers delivered the coffees, he saw the reporter flipping through the stories of the lives of the early-onset dementia patients, he’d gotten activated, “I’d made one too, let me show you!”, and, as I’d turned, I saw the report on the T.V. wall, on how the early onset dementia patient, forgetting what he was gong to do.

Twelve years ago, the fifty-three-year-old owner of the transportation business, Meng fell into a coma from arrhythmia, and days afterwards when he woke back up, he couldn’t, recognize his own wife, Chuang, forgotten how to write, bathe himself, putting his clothes on, his wife thought that this was the side effect from his stroke, and he’d gone into physical therapy for a whole year, but, no improvements, that’s when his wife took him to the neurologist’s for a test, and, Meng was diagnosed with vascular dementia.

As I was drinking the coffee, the shy Wu came over, and used his salesmanship to sell me some cakes, not really many words, thought for a very long time, then told me, “This tastes amazing!”, and, as everybody started getting the whole sentence to try to figure out what Wu meant, then they’d come to known, that this was Wu’s bakery, “The Sweet Memories Bakeries” pound cakes, that’s sold here only on the weekends.

The Fifty-Two-Year-Old Husband Had Dementia, Causing the Whole Family to Fall into State of Panic

When Wu was fifty-two, he had a stroke, which caused his dementia, the day he was formally diagnosed, his wife, Chen and he held each other at the hospital and cried hard.  Wu due to his condition, could not work, and had needed to be taken care of around-the-clock, and needed to take the classes to help slow down the progression, his wife, Hsin-Yi had to keep the household economics, she’d stayed on working, and placed her husband into the daycare programs. Zheng-Bang worked hard for several days, placed himself in the seventy, eighty year old elders, did the physical therapy exercises with them, do the activities of singing, art, being younger, with a good physical health, he’d had a future of work ahead of him, it’d made him feel embarrassed, and refused to go to the daycare center again.

from online, operating every Saturday from 10 to 4p.m

Hsin-Yi found, that the activities are all designed for the elderly population, that there’s a different set of challenges for the families, the patients of early onset dementia.  She’d looked for a very long time, and found Young Coffee, my first call was with “Huei-Jen, we’d talked for two hours straight, it was like I’d finally found that piece of wood in the vastness, that someone finally, understood me.”  Chen’s panic, loneliness, and feeling lost, is common to the loved ones with early onset dementia.

There’s No SOP, Only Learning as They Go

“The early onset is quite different than the elderly dementia, as the elders become demented, they were already dependents of the families, are in need of care.  The younger type would feel, that they needed to find work!  They are faced with loss of job, family conflicts, and other problems relating to these, the education of their young, as well as the caretaking of their, aging parents too!”, the assistant secretary of the Alzheimer’s Foundation, Lee is the driftwood that offered the chances of not drowning to Chen on the other end of the line.

Lee worked with the cases of early-onset dementia patients for many years, is the families’ go-to-person, she’d told, that there are, too many different and complex situations with the early onset cases, there’s no standard means of handling the cases, to even now, she’s still, learning as she goes.

For instance, a few years back, the foundation received a call, a woman who held a higher up position in a firm in her fifties, she was in the beginning stages, single parent, raising a child of only a little older than three, her parents are gone, with no one else she can rely on, she’d come to inquire, what arrangements she can make for her own child.  A year and a half later, the woman deteriorated to the point of not being able to live on her own, the foundation accompanied her to the treatment sessions, helped her retire successfully, found a facility for her, and filed for the adoption papers for her child, each problem came too quickly, “there are a lot of case like this one, before you can think about what to do, you are, forced, to make the choices!”

The Youngest Worker is Forty-Five, with the Café as His Driftwood that Helped Him Stay with Head Above Water

In Young Coffee, everyone has a bitter story.  Currently, the youngest is a man born in 1977, as another individual was diagnosed, he just had twins.  And, for some, because formal diagnosis was hard to get, the individual was labeled as mentally ill, lazy, irresponsible, forced out of their work, gotten divorced from their spouses.

And so, Young Coffee is a café from the outside looking in, but, it’s actually, a place where the families and the early onset patients’ place to go to learn, and to breathe in, also, a base for the foundation to help the families of these early onset dementia patients.

“Shen-Jen no longer recognized me, he can’t take care of his own needs anymore”, Liu, is also a family member of an early onset dementia patient, her husband, Lin was diagnosed at age fifty-four, in the beginning stages, he’d worked at Young Coffee, taken the classes too, but, dementia is like a long goodbye, no matter how attentive Liu took care of her husband, how much she’d put her mind into caring for him, it still, can’t defy the scripts of life that dementia had written down for her husband.  And even as she’d known how it would end, his wife, Feng-Lien told, that there’s still the heartaches, the losses that come with it.

But, it’s not all loss.  When Liu was younger, she sustained a brain injury, lost all the physical abilities of her body, as a registered handicap person, Liu had always been the cared for in her life, but she’d become stronger, with her husband’s early onset dementia, and became, a caretaker, even now, as her husband is of severe dementia, Liu still spoke for the early onset dementia individuals, fought hard for more resources for them, to get a facility set up to take care of all the early onset dementia patients, she said, all of these resources, her husband is no longer in need of, but they can help the families like them, who are in the same situations, to find that driftwoods, so they can all, float back to shore, without drowning.

And so, these are, the stories, of the families of the early onset dementia patients, and, this is a place, that offers the vocational trainings, the opportunities for work, so these younger generations of dementia patients can still continue working, until they can’t work anymore, and this is also a place, where the families can come together, to find that social support they’re all in need of, in taking care of their loved ones who’d been, diagnosed too.

This, Final, Mile…

In the, “home stretch”, and, we’re, almost, there…

This, final, mile of life had been, too, difficult for you, you’d been, in and, out of the hospital, and, you’d, “survived” through each and every one of your, emergency visits.

This, final, mile, is still, not yet done for you, but, as you grow weaker by the day, I’d, wondered, when will your, suffering, end?  And, how much longer, must you be, tortured, like so?

This, final, mile, it wasn’t, supposed to be, easy, not for you because you do NOT deserve, an, easy death.  This final, mile, you’d been, admitted, released, readmitted, rereleased, from the hospital, again, and again, and again.

in this, “home stretch”…

And your families, get, trapped, in the signing of your DNR, over, over, over, and over again, and each and every single time those E.R. nurses asked about whether or not you’re, DNR, they would, battle with themselves, as well, as each other.

They don’t want you to suffer, but, having you for one more day, well, that’s, one extra day they will get, with you………

Do We Really Want to be Led by the Internet?  To Get the Right of Our Lives, Back

How we humans are, driven to become, more and more, addicted to high-tech devices, the internet here, with the outbreaks, adding to our needs to use the internet, because we have to, to keep ourselves out of, MERS-CoV’s ways???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

What do you want your futures to be composed of?  More and more convenient, safer, and more, secure that’s a given!  But, do you want that tighter knit relationship with the internet, or, more of the physical, face-to-face, human interactions, and getting into the natural world?

Scientific research had already proven, that physical interactions with others and being close to nature, is good for our physical and mental, health, but, the internet surely, does make life, more, convenient, safer, and the key here is are technologies being used by the people, or, are we the people, being, used by, technologies?  A food for thought, for all the consumers in the world!

“Metaverse”, surely, everybody’s heard of it, it’d made its way onto the various forms of media, and in print, described how the internet world will be filled with so many brand new things we can, experience, at our, fingertips, but how much of what’s on the internet, is truly, practical, that offered the people the ways of life they want to have?  And, how much of the population would want to, live in this, virtual, reality?

The virtual reality surely can, bring more fun and applications to human living, it can be used in gaming, travel, education training, safety, an assortment of modes of businesses………………, these technologies are used by people, they can make our futures more convenient, safer, and full of more practical operations.

But, the major companies of technologies hold a different view of the practical means of technology, the C.E.O. of Tesla, Musk once mocked, “nobody wants to tie a god damn screen to one’s head all day long”, and he’d wanted to develop “a chip that’s implanted into the brains, that can, help improve our physical abilities.”, but this also has the risk of moral, as well as the issues of practicality as well.

what we all, become…

as we are, highly, addicted, and, lacked, that needed, self-control! Illustration from online

The advancements in technologies, and the usefulness of the internet, surely, gave people  a ton of convenience, made our lives more efficient, it’s a must-have tool for everybody, but, the sources of our happiness, is not from the internet, but from the face-to-face interactions we share with others around us, and being able to enjoying the beauties of, nature, so it’s the consumers who need to become, fully aware, of what it is that they are, searching for.

The consumers should use the internet and technologies available to us, to make a safer, and more convenient, and healthier world for us all to live in, instead of trapping ourselves, in the virtual realities, that we can’t, get back out again.

And, this showed, how easily it is, that we all become, addicted to these, high-tech devices, these social networking means, and we feel compelled to update our profiles, to let the rest of the world know what’s happening to us in our separate lives (oh wow, I just made a “doo-doo” out of my ASS!), and it’s this state of mind of wanting to be in the SPOTLIGHT, and I want the world’s attention on ME, that’s drive the internet to become so widely variable, and we’d lost sight of what’s truly important, getting into the world, physically, to INTERACT with each other, face-to-face, especially, with MERS-CoV, rolling around currently, it’s safer, for us to, keep ourselves home, to reduce the risk of getting exposed, and, all of these, added to the addiction of using the internet, and our separate, high-tech devices, and it’s still not good!

Gun Control Had Been Discussed for More Than Nine Years to Date in the U.S., but There’s Still NO Agreements on it

What the U.S. needs is NOT gun-control, is people control, and stricter laws in getting a gun license, and the parents, locking those GUNS inside a combination safe only the parents know the combinations of, and then, maybe, there would be, less of these, cases in the U.S., off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Democrats Opened Fire, the Republicans Ignored, Biden Went to a Gun-Control Event, was Criticized as a “Total Joke”

There had been cases after cases of shootings I schools, it’d brought up the debate of gun control in the U.S., and yet, the Congress’s laws to control guns hadn’t made any progresses since the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, it’d caused a lot of the Democrats to go from “mourning” to “anger”, aiming their blames toward the Republicans.

The Democratic Congressman from Connecticut, Murphy stated on the 24th, “We took so much time in getting elected, and we are now elected, and yet, what awaited us, is not a country of peace, but a series of shootings, what, are we doing, as members of the congress?”

Comparing to the angers of the Democrats, the Republicans are still evading responsibilities, said, that the most important thing now, is to help the victims of the shootings recover, not the gun control laws; the Republican House representative from Texas, Gonzales stated, “the innocent children became victims of the violence, it’s heartbreaking, I shall face it with everybody”, and yet, not a word of mentioning of setting up the gun control laws.

Since the shooting on the 14th in Buffalo, New York, it’d caused the matter of gun control to resurface again; but Washington Post reported that after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting took twenty lives ten years ago, the almost birthed gun control laws, still hadn’t made any progress yet, and now, what sort of a progress the mass shooting that’s occurred recently has, it’s, not expected.

President Obama stated that he is to use all “his powers” to prevent the mass shootings after the Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14th, 2012, but toward the voices against it politically, the two Republicans had drafted up a gun-control legislation that both parties agreed with.  Machin and Toomey agreed that gun control is necessary, and drafted up a bill for gun control that both parties could, agree on.

And, those on the inside stated, back then, after Obama had declared the gun control means, Biden held more than two hundred conferences with the local parents, scholars, the officials, the army and police forces, the local organizations, and set up the blueprint of gun control, and called up the senators too; but it was the two senators, Machin and Toomey who drafted up the bills, which made a former democratic congressman told Washington Post, that Biden is “completely incompetent”, that his role in the gun control laws was a “total joke”.

And, even though the two congressmen had already worked their best, to found a middle ground between the two parties, and those who want stricter gun control laws, and those who supported second amendment rights, the votes still didn’t pass in 2013.

And since this fail, the Congress had, never again, passed any laws closely related to gun control since.

And so, this is, how the availabilities of guns, made these shootings happen, if there are stricter gun control laws, and strict rules for owning guns, to reduce the chances of one being available to all who wanted one, then, maybe, there wouldn’t be as many shootings in the U.S., but it didn’t work!

So yeah, there are going to be, shootings in the future, and it’s still not because there’s no gun control laws, but because of how people can’t control themselves.

A Pact with Our Ancestors

The problems that stemmed out of the declines of birth rates, of how culture is, lost slowly, translated…

The wooden plates of our ancestors upstairs, carried the spirits of those who came before my generations, since I could remember, from my grandparents to my parents, every morning and evening, there would be the offerings of a stick of incense.  When there were the doubts of life, the adults would be lost in thought, as the stick of incense starts to burn up, leaving the smokes that rise upward.  But I’d only felt secretly excited, that of the days of the year, there would be the offerings of the delicious foods , and made, and, as the adults told us the children, to call out the ancestors whose names were written on the wooden plates back to have the foods, after the offerings, we get the extra dishes to eat.

Later, my parents also, “moved in” to the plates too, and I’m now, the one, standing in the smoke that rose upward, and that was when I’d finally understood, what our older generations were thinking of, “Ancestors, mom, dad, do bless the families to be safe and healthy.”  It seemed, that by asking the ancestors for the blessings, we got that promised blessing then, this became, the most faithful asking of blessings for our own, loved ones.

And now, there’s just, two aging elderly who’d, kept guard over this shrine in my home, and we’d, prayed daily, that our children who are all married away, to be safe with their own families, to be healthy.

Recently, in the offerings I’d made, there’s that, extra discussion, and appointment too, when eventually my husband and I made it into the plates ourselves, then, there would be no one here, to offer anymore, and, I’d told our daughter, to place the plates in the temples, so we can, stay alongside Buddha then.

This would be the problem of declined birth rate of modern day world, and I’m certain, that all the ancestors would understand, and surely, that the promise of blessings would keep getting passed, to our children, and down the line as well.

And so, this is, the problems of the declines in birth rate, how as we age, and we won’t have anybody to offer the items to us anymore, but that’s, based off of the beliefs of how our souls would, stay around our families after we’re, already gone, but this isn’t actually, true, but it gives us that safe place to feel secure in, that’s the purpose of, faith, and religions.

Everything will Eventually Work Out in Life

What her father left behind for her, the wisdoms, not the physical, assets here, how you want to remember by others when you’re dead and gone, the values you leave behind, translated…

Every time I’d rummaged through my coin purse, it’s like, I’d already, counted them up, and made the perfect change, and I’d often, recalled my own father at these times.  Based off of how he’d taught me math, he’d often stated, “math is unchanged,” and now came my turn, to teach my own son math, I’d learned, that everything is, not as stable in this world, that the only thing that don’t betray you, are the numbers and the math.

What awed me was, that my father, who’d, calculated everything in his own life, although, couldn’t predict when his life ended, but he’d, fulfilled, “leaving nothing behind”.  As Shel Silverstein wrote in “Prayers of a Selfish Child”, “As I Lay Me Down to Sleep, I Pray the Lord My Soul to Keep, If I Die Before I Wake, I Pray the Lord My Toys to Break, So None of the Other Kids Can Use ‘Em…Amen!” I was still a teenage girl as I first read this, felt, that this poem had, helped me understand what I couldn’t of my own father.

Recently, a good friend accompanied me to see him at his grave, I’d talked of how he’d only lived, for himself, my friend, don’t know if she was courteous, or heartfelt, told, “Uncle really let go of everything.”  Yeah, sure, maybe, he’d already saw through, this, long and short life, knew that life’s too short, and tried, to give himself the sweetened fruits of no worries for the long run.

And so, this, is how we need to, get closure on everything that’s happened to us in our lives, soon as we can, because we don’t know when we will get yanked off of the planet, and, by the time we actually get yanked off, if there are the regrets, the forgiveness, the unforgiveness or whatever that’s left behind, then, you would not be able to die off easily enough.  So, do what you need to, to resolve as many things in your lives as you possibly can, right now.
