酷吏

從三月三日回臺,腦中經常就在想,馬英九到底是怎麼樣的一
個人,為什麼期望都在他身上落空,到底是我們看錯了人還是
我們從來就沒有了解他.

從總統祕書起到黨副秘書長,形象好但樣版化,在大陸事務副
主委後期,為了李登輝”總統直選”變局中,對媒體說出了”你們
今後還相信我嗎”一句話後,沒擔當成不了大事的印象由然而
生.

法務部長的過程中更感覺到了他是為”法”所”制”沒有”開創”
個性,自”清”不”合”流的天性,更在連宋吳蕭的接班大戰中失
去身影不解.

但最看不懂的就是他跟李登輝的分分合合,可以看出的是,從
當上臺北市長到包圍李登輝,這是一個”新臺灣人”中的一個
新”品種”.

市長任內的”班馬線權威”當時是多”真”多”大”,但今天的年青
一代,己不是有人記得而是有人知道嗎?

公車上的博愛座,更是二屆市長任期內的敗筆.

紅杉軍的”馬路”時光,看到了他的權謀與算計,但一直到今天
聼到了他口中的”他們”,這才體會出他的”清高”與百姓的距
離, 因此9/9為什麼又要上街頭,也有了體會.

大選前一年,為了顯示決心,參加了國民黨,一路走來更體會到
為何那麼多人反出黨去.

選上後的馬上好更是一句空話,當時政府組織系統的掌握,幾乎
是一片空白.

就職時,電視鏡頭上,在人生最高峯時,情緒化喜極失控,令人想
提醒他,高興一晚就好的名言.

這一晚可還真延長了一年,太多的人都表達了不滿意,但看得出
來的是,大家對他還是有期待.

但3/3後,我不確定了,陳長文的文章不斷上報,從紅十字會到
周美青,他的管道和影響力,明眼人一看就知道.

但體制上的文字不見各部會有所行動,反而更多的文字捍衛政
權,這完全反映執政的最高領導,不在狀況中,而從陳的文中,更
見西化法律人的中式考量.

當時的心中立刻想到的是,馬身邊的小人和yes man 太多了.

又回想起當年的李登輝與蔣彥士及蔣的紅粉知己,太多的小人
本身更本就不了解自己就是在做小人的事,他們的小人地位都
是後來歷史來認定的.

天真的我還不斷的跟名嘴及專欄作家表達淸君側的看法,他
們共同的回應都是”馬英九會聼嗎?”.

更恐怖的是他們都指出,有誰會”怕”馬英九及他重用的人.

參選黨代表是個人的最後努力,我的確也有三次機會.

第一次是參選領表,人在臺北就直接去黨部,沒想到工作人
員的烏龍,造成幾乎媒體認為我是黨主席參選領表,我玩真的,
第二天所有的頭版一定是我.

第二次是與馬扳橋同臺,因是週末,全臺北做牌子的全部公休,
整個西門叮沒人營業,我的”小人”及 “yes man” 的理念,
完全因為没有道具無從發揮.

結果身擁二個充氣娃娃的地方人士,不但第二天有文字,更有
近24小時的電視笑話效應.

最後就是投票時,我可以對”一”人参選的”浪費”過程強烈
抗議,但投票時7/26, 我7/25滿65歲,對馬對黨都沒有期望了,
何必呢?

在臺期間,多次與人談到,馬到底是一個什麼樣的處世心態,個
人提出老殘遊記,希望能從人文角度,讓我們感受到傳統中國
式的法律人,當然他們也是有”理想”同”原則”的,但人性上的
冷,酷吏就是最正確寫照.

今天臺灣的法律人,包裝了西方的唯法法治原則,但卻在平衡
對等的 civilized humanity 上缺席.

馬英九強調個人法律人特質- 守法,但相對的”同情””同理”心
沒有因對等強化,身邊的人成了yes man 或小人,這樣的領導
羣,在非常的事件時,領導的酷吏性格就不是社會之福.

能影响他的人如陳長文等,更是法律人性格,正義至上的捍衛
政權,不見加分.

被起訴時的個人悲情,完全在余文事件中消失,宋楚瑜的永不
錄用反映了對權謀人的戒心與絕對反感,有除惡到底的心態,
但相對比較除悪和能力救災,没有慈悲心的法律人就是酷吏,
到了國家元首層級,那就是人民的災難.

US OCEAN SEISMIC TESTS

It is in Canada territory.
And our government approved it.
But our environment group is unhappy.
They feel the operation will disturb ocean wild life.
I agree.
But my immediate concern is.
Earthquake affecting our safety has higher priority.
What if the study is our best bet for earthquake prediction?
Then the choice is the better of two evils.

TWO SIDES OF VAN OLYMPIC

Van Sun is point blank on Ottawa and BC slow to cash in on Olympic investment.
The “national pavilion” concept ought to be in the open long ago.
Now with short notice it is demanded by Sept. 7, 2009.
The contract does worth between $5-9 millions.
The short time frame is shocking and unwise.
Conventional wisdom can be tale telling here.
It can be a done deal.
Someone already has it in the bag.
It is only the formality.
All things are well prepared.
So why need the rush.
Then there is Province.
It printed the $30 millions disputation between VANOC and IOC.
And organizing committee confidence is suggested to be in doubt.
The quoted Jacques Rogge comment made it more interesting.
On appearance it hurts even more.
He suggested we can use a bit more promotion.
Then it is his opinion that we have lot undone works.
Are we really behind or it is not for us to know yet?

CANADIAN OPPORTUNITY TAIPEI

The news is blowing my mind.
I just came back on August 12.
The property was less than $500,000 NT dollars per pin then.
But it is at $1.05 millions NT per pin now.
The apartment is 40 years old.
Two other sites have offers at $0.95 million and $0.76 million.
I know the 3 locations well.
This proves how China is helping Taipei on wealth and is spreading around.
Taipei is enjoying the full benefit first and the best.

IRONY

Hunger strike is at East Van.
They demand more funds from Federal government.
That is to build more cheap housing.
Do good is a civilized and respectable act.
But it is going overboard when one sided demanding.
With demand, there ought to be responsibility as well.
By far they are not showing any sign or will to get themselves out the mess.

Same irony is going on with China.
New guideline on civil behaviors for Chinese is out.
That is for visiting other countries.
The regulation is long over due by many.
And those behaviors had long being criticized.
In a way it is good government finally stepping in.
But no one believes it will work since no punishment following.

CNN AND CHINESE LEADER

Chinese leader is getting new respect in Western world.
The face to face interview used to be a major negative in display.
But this time, the difference is positive and obvious.
WEN is making Chinese proud.
His sincerity and humanity came through. 
And he faced the tough questions and took the bullet.
Seasoned calm carried him through.
The inscrutable Chinese has new meaning.
And it is all positive.

MA STEPPING DOWN

He is not the man the country needs now.
His job is done with Administration changed.
With no killer instinct, he will be like Bush.

It is something you have it or don’t.
And it is necessary for any leader.
Or you must have someone close by having it.

The disaster in Taiwan is a telling tale.
None in power seats has it.
And some were on vacation.

I took August 12 flight from Taipei to Vancouver.
National Security Deputy Secretary was on.
And he saw what I saw from August 8, 2009.

He has higher political jurisdiction.
Why was Foreign Affair Deputy Minister to step down?
Who had more authority in decision making?

Frankly it is President Ma ought to step down.
He failed all citizens on his “watch”.
The “buck” has to stop with him.

He calls himself a legal person.
And current system protects his Presidency.
But does he have any moral ground to stand on?

He was totally devastated when accused wrong doing.
But he let staff took the fall.
That showed no moral high ground in equality only the self interest playing system.

Now his mighty was in words to cut the Deputy in Foreign Affair.
He is safe because of Constitutional Right.
But it is National Moral Value people will judge him on.

Public see it clearly.
First Lady has more common sense than him.
And old dog will never learn new tricks.
 
Taiwan will be ok without his leadership.
A head with ll screws gone can only do more damages.
The VP can be better for now.

Picture tells tale.
VP did bow lower with head down.
And the two Ministers stood straight up concluded the message.

Feel and fear the public sentiment is not in his system.
He is the wrong guy to re-build the government and current system.
By far, it is only power and control in his arrogance.

Strong man before him did step down.
And the other managed to balance the power between generations.
He is a failure on both.

US will be good to his VP as successor.
China will do the same.
Balance of power between parties and generations will come to a better new start.

His stepping down will be the final awakening for the island.
The system is a total all screws lost.
The total re-build is now.

West’s legal emphasis is a failure in moral justice.
Old Chinese moral values need to be considered.
No advantage is allowed in legal loophole practice.

His stepping down is the best for him and the country.
That will be the best example to future China and history.
And he is giving Taiwan his best.

ON THE WEST FRONT

People are shocked to learn.
US use contract killers to deal with terrorists.
And still there is no result in sight.

Many wondered.
US are military mighty.
They are the most powerful killing machine in the world.

Invading Iraq said it all.
They proved the speed and efficiency.
Why is the “out-sourcing” format now?

Fact is.
You can be the best at invading.
But occupying is a different story.

No invading military could handle the local dark element.
And it is culture clash in new century.
The best of all the worst surfaced.
 
Let’s call it reality check.
It is the best you can offer to face the best on other side.
This is life or death with no winner situation.

Government needs moral code and honors.
But it is people with killer instinct getting job done.
And that can not co-exist in regular government system.

This is what Cheney and his “like” were best at.
They best in dirty work.
Obama or Bidden can’t change any of that.

This is why the Bush “left over” stayed.
Killer instinct is an unspeakable national asset.
They are outside the law.

And law will never protect them.
Europe had French’s “foreign legion”.
RAMBO speaks for the past US practice.

This time, the “fight” will drag on.
Black Water couldn’t take control in Iraq.
Now it has to be up-graded in Afghanistan.

MOST POWERFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD

No, it is not Clinton.
That says a lot of the downfall of US influence.
West Germany lady leader is taking over.

US banking lady came second.
This tells what is happening in US affecting the whole world.
But First Lady follows the Clinton.

That is an indication.
We see the power of present.
But smart one can sense the trouble in near future. 

有”危”就有”機”

臺灣面對重大災害,強烈反映出政府不存在現實,架構解體領導無能,
完全是從最高點失控,由此可看出,在上者的具有”居安思危”的古訓
的思維,比”跑行程”重要太多了.

颱風季還在,地震的全球警訊不容忽略,流感的九月旺季就在眼前,南
部災區衛生問題,產災的民生問題不可能馬上好.

新團隊有人嗎?還要分藍綠嗎?

知道誰是最好的有能力又合適的嗎?不知道就問慈濟之類的社會賢
達吧,王聖人行動力老了就少說點吧.

數十年國際孤兒的臺灣,危中生”良機”,舉世的關懷打通了所有慈悲路,
美國及大陸的數清善意,如何全面消受,是臺灣全民今天要面對的最大
議題.
