Taiwan's legislature stirs from its torpor, slashes budget, and other links

Several of my future dinners in a farm outside of Houli.

Enjoy some delicious links...
Don't miss the comments below! And check out my blog and its sidebars for events, links to previous posts and picture posts, and scores of links to other Taiwan blogs and forums! Delenda est, baby.

"Yes, just what we need in the current era of stagnating economic growth: austerity in the form of slashed budgets."

The money that was cut was largely ridiculous things like "bonuses" paid to retired government employees, teachers, and soldiers. I mean, it's unbelievable--why would you get a bonus for not working?

If you want to provide stimulus, then provide stimulus. Don't sit around and make waisheng dominated slices of society marginally wealthier.
