On the road this vacation. Probably won't be blogging again til Tuesday.

My column in Taiwan News was killed for being too critical of the DPP. So no column this week either. *sigh*

Good news for Taiwan, though. The Sunflowers were acquitted today, and the judge cited, apparently for the first time ever in Taiwan, the principle of civil disobediance. Like a ray of sunlight. In Hong Kong today the leaders of the umbrella movement were summoned to court yesterday after being indicted. The contrast is clear... may the message get through.
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!

You finally caught up with us who had long time ago, or it seems generations ago since DDP free-rode the Sunflower momentum and took the sweepstakes of the Election, shifted anger that was on KMT to DPP. It is because President Tsai has turned DPP and Taiwan backward.

Tsai desires only political power in addition to a fat monthly pay check and for that she will lose it. If DPP wants to become another KMT, let them be. Deep-greeners have made a decision not to give them votes in future elections.

Nevermind, for those interested:

A great read as always. Just one question, what did the Transportation Minister accomplished to justify sparing him?

To hell with the Taiwan News. Happy to print a columnist when views overlap but not print when they don't? Partisan garbage dies hard.
