Trump, the so-called THE greatest negotiator ever, flexed his negotiation muscles on the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, over a period of more than a year. It went down the history of the mankind more or less like this:

Trump; This guy is a bad dude. But, I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him.

Kim: See my missiles fly.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: This guy is a bad dude, and don’t underestimate him.

Kim: Check out my missiles.

Trump: Kim Jong Un is a little rocket man.

Kim: Trump is a dotard.

Kim: Watch my nuclear test goes off.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

Kim: “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire.” Trump didn’t know what dotard was. His guys Googled and they laughed.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: I am not a dotard and to provide that I’m willing to talk to Kim.

Kim: Let’s meet on 6/12 for tea.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: Kim was dragging his feet. Kim was no good and I didn’t want to talk to him anymore. He couldn’t be trusted. Let’s just calledl that damn meeting off.

Kim: I’m very serious, dotard. See, I’ve completely dismantled our nuclear testing site. No one couldn’t get in now.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: I am very sorry, Jong Un. Please forgive me. It’s my bad but it’s Kelly and Tillerson’s fault. Please be patient. I’ll make it happen.

Kim: I’m not paying for my trip.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Trump: Kim’s country does love him and he’s got a great personality. He’s a funny guy, he’s very smart, he’s a great negotiator. He loves his people, not that I’m surprised by that. I am going to stop the joint military exercise with S. Korea and Japan.

Kim: That’s about right. Trump, you are forgiven and you are a good dotard. I will check in with my boss in Beijing later and get back to you. You know that I’ve made too many nuclear bombs and missiles.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Lately, Kim has been reported to have laughed his socks (actually his a%&) off.

Moon and Abe were stunned.

Trump remained to be a dotard.

American navy got a few days off.

Korean and Japanese navies got lost in the Pacific Oceanlooking for American aircraft carriers.

American tax payers saved a few bucks.

The dotard Trump waked up and realized that he had been out smarted by the rocket man.

Kim promptly executed

by firing squad

a s

enior military officer who said that “they no longer needed to suffer and tighten our belts to make rockets and nuclear weapons.”

Trump won’t talk to the rocket man and no one in the White House is allowed to mention Jong Un’s name or Jong Un’s nickname in front of Trump anymore.

Last I checked, Palestinians, just like Saudi Arabians, are predominantly Sunni Muslims.

So, we have a sunni muslim nation supporting Israel and trashing a fellow Sunni muslim nation.

中東窩裏反了。要變天啦!

Trump 的小三要告他 March 8, 2018

我總覺得,美國人對小三或小四這種事好像不怎麽在乎的樣子。同樣的,美國人對太太劈腿也好像見怪不怪,甚至無動於衷。大不了,離婚嗎。有什麽了不起?街上的廣告到處都是。

美國的電影和電視劇裏,這種事情多的是。男的出去吃個飯就可能跟別人一見鍾情,再見就連自己姓什麽都忘記了。女的跟同事去酒吧喝酒就可能節外生枝,進而紅杏出牆。

公司的同仁眉來眼去,打情罵俏,日久生情,進而喝酒,吃飯,約會。家中老小都忘的一幹二凈。這一類的劇情幾乎沒有那一個電影沒有,那一個電視劇中不來個一兩回。

美國總統家裏也不例外。

克林頓就是一個好例子。他從阿肯色州做州長就開始了,這種行為從不間斷。他的老婆扒著他不放,對他的婚外情是睜一隻眼,閉一只眼,變像的助長它的行為。這些事,大多數美國的選民都知道,卻閉著眼睛選他做總統。克林頓進了白宮也沒有改這個狗改不了吃屎的壞習慣。沒多久就跟一個年紀輕輕的實習生搞上了。最後東窗事發被共和黨的眾議院告了一狀,名留美國近代史。那他的太太呢?雖然她名爲美國的第一夫人,還不是要公然的忍受這種恥辱,風言風語的,讓天下的人看笑話。

美國的現任總統特朗普是另外一個好例子。他離婚兩次,結婚三次。手腳就從來沒有幹凈過。結果,前前後後有20個女生告過他。他的第三任太太剛剛生過小孩沒多久,他就跟一個妓女發生不尋常的關係。後來在競選美國總統時,還付錢要她住口,不能把他們中間的齷齪事抖出來,免得影響他競選美國總統的機會。

誰知道,現在那位風塵女郎卻要告特朗普。說給她錢,要她住口的事。這下可好了,說不定法官會要特朗普上臺和這位風塵女子當庭對質。最好再來個法庭上的盛況廣播,給全世界看笑話。

特朗普的第三任太太是模特兒出生。雖然她是一個受害者,她的臉卻沒有什麽地方可以放。世界上的人還不是一樣的笑她。可是特朗普有沒有受到什麼批評嗎?有沒有什麽自命清高的基督徒和天主教徒出來批評特朗普的道德操守不夠嗎?有沒有什麼自命清高的老學究和老師出來指責特朗普對美國的社會和美國的小孩子有不可彌補的效果嗎?

好像沒有吧。要不然就是我沒聽到。

看來美國人見怪不怪,只因為許多美國人也有一腿吧。

我不是佛教徒,對佛教沒有認識,雖然唸過金剛經,對這些經文全不瞭解,對輪迴並不相信,對地獄也不相信,對佛教的教義也是一知半解。不過,佛教所代表的精神和意義讓我有一種寧靜,安詳,平和,自在,放下和與世無爭的感覺。

在我還是唸小學的時候,一直到我們搬到台中北屯以後,我就時常去附近的寶覺寺。奶奶去逝後,她的骨灰就暫時寄存在那裏。逢年過節,我們一家總會去那裏,請出奶奶的骨灰,我們輪流上香,燒紙,祭拜。求奶奶和盧家的列祖列宗保佑大家。

後來寶覺寺在大殿的邊上蓋了一個好大的彌勒佛,我更是喜歡。尤其是喜歡彌勒佛前面一塊石碑上刻的”大肚能容了卻人間多少事,滿腔歡喜,笑開天下古今愁”這兩句話。我不但對寶覺寺有深厚的印象,對廟裏的菩薩也心存敬畏,對菩薩代表的精神和意義也一知半解的記在心裏。反正不要做壞事就對了。至於愛世人,我有自知之明,我是到不了那個境界的。

因為這個原故,我自己認為我和佛教有緣,走過廟,也常常進去給菩薩拜一拜,捐個香火錢,爲自己和家人祈福。你如果說我迷信,大概有一點吧。

中國最有名,香火最鼎盛,眾人最敬愛的菩薩有四個:觀音菩薩、普賢菩薩、地藏菩薩和文殊菩薩。

觀音菩薩,悲心廣大,普渡眾生,是慈象徵,也是中國最普遍和最受人敬仰的菩薩。

普賢菩薩象徵理德和行德,是大乘佛教行願的象徵。它幫助眾生脫離娑婆苦海,往生去西方的極樂世界。

地藏菩薩因為它”安忍不動如大地,靜慮深密如秘藏”而得名。它有一個宏願:眾生度盡、方證菩提;地獄不空誓不成佛

文殊菩薩德才超群,居菩薩之首。它吉祥、美觀、莊嚴,代表智德和正德,是智慧的象徵。

觀音菩薩最有名的道場在浙江普陀山。但是世界上最高的白玉觀音菩薩卻在海南的三亞附近。我們來三亞玩,藉這個機會也請我們的 didi 司機帶我們去看了一看。它離天涯海角不太遠,但是離三亞市區有一個鍾頭的車程。

觀世音菩薩在海中的一個人工島上,所以叫它南山海上觀音。

進了景區,遠遠的就可以看到觀音菩薩的雕像在海的中央。

三亞南山海上觀音。南山寺就在這裏。

這個觀音有三面。持珠觀音菩薩是中間的一個。

仰望觀音。雖然它是做出來的假身,也有一些莊嚴的氣氛。

這是觀音菩薩下面的大廳入口。那天不是假日,觀光客仍然是那麽多人。光是排隊進去就要一個鍾頭。我們沒有去排隊。遠遠的給觀音菩薩拜一拜,祈了福。也求菩薩保佑我們家人。

觀音在南山,有三面,所以叫南山海上觀音。它站立在海中間的一個人工島上。

遊客並不多。如果你是佛教徒,這裏除了觀音菩薩雕像,還有寺廟。

到此一遊了。

要進出大廳要排隊一個鍾頭。

不二法門的意義。非此非彼,即此既彼。

景區內店家牆上的字含義很深。我不怎麼喝茶,不過我可以體會出喝茶的境界。襌這個字,我一知半解。無緣也。

Nine countries united to vote against a U.N. resolution condemning Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

Here are the nine:

  1. USA
  2. Israel 
  3. Micronesia
  4. Nauru
  5. Togo and Tonga 
  6. Palau
  7. The Marshall Islands
  8. Guatemala
  9. Honduras

There you have it. These seven countries knelt under the wrath of American power but they should continue to receive handouts from the U.S. BTW, have you ever heard of Nauru or Palau? I certainly don’t.

35 countries voted abstain which in essence were YES votes. If they thought Trump has done the right thing, they would have voted NO like UN9 did. Among them were Canada, Australia, Mexico, Rwanda and Uganda. Trump probably won’t ask Mexico to pay for the wall after Mexico’s vote. Canada will continue export its heavy oil to the U.S. I am not sure what the U.S. said to Uganda and Rwanda which made them not follow the majority’s action.

Haley’s verbal threat before the vote, ‘we’ll be taking names’, finally showed what America really is to the world: a bully, a vengeful weasel and an imperious thug.

Well, if the U.S. wants to cut off foreign aids to these countries, so be it. China probably will be more than happy to take up the slack.

Of course, not a single Muslim country voted with the U.S. and Trump’s move simply will fan more hatreds from muslims against the U.S. and Israel. 

What has Trump gained from this move other than fulfiled a campaigm promise to a small group of people? 

But, at what price will America and American people pay for this modern day crusade against the muslims? 

It is obvious that American foreign policy has incite a long strings of hostile moves and suicide attacks against American interests in the U.S. and abroad since the 1993 World Trade Center truck bombing and the 2001 9-11 suicide attacks.

Will we see more attacks from the Muslims against the U.S. because Trump’s move is a perfect material for future recuitment by al-qaeda and other Islamic groups.

Gone are the horses, swords, Shamshirs, halberds, bows, crossbows, arrows and spears. Todays, the weapons of choice are drones, fighter jets, Hellfire missiles, PGMs, IEDs and suicide bombs jackets. 

One thing is for sure with Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the war between Muslims and the U.S. will continue and intensify.

It may last another thousand years.




And who is at fault? September 28, 2017

Who is responsible for the world going to hell in a handbasket? 

Who do you think is the culprit?

There can be no doubt that Trump, his advisors and his supportors are largely responsible for the current mess in the world. So, go ahead, Trump, keeps stirring up the pot with your tweets and makes America the enemy of the world.

But, China is doing fine, thank you very much. 

The U.S. was solely responsible for the Great Recession because America, including the Wall Street bankers, the Fed, the regulators, the Congress, the banks and thousands of greedy investors, created the subprime mortgage loan crisis and the subsequent financial crisis.

Now, Trump is dividing the country up into multiple classes and makes people from different classes hate each other. 

Trump didn’t stop there. Here is a list of things Trump has done and wanted to do since 1/20/2017:

  • got out of TPP, 
  • got out of the Paris Accord,
  • weakened NATO, 
  • re-negotiated NAFTA, 
  • wanted to get rid of Iran nuclear deal, 
  • asked American allies, such as Japan, Korea, Germany, France, just to name a few, to pay for protections they have received from the U.S., 
  • threatened fire and fury on Kim Jong En and total destruction to North Korea and its people,
  • sent more U.S. troops to Afghanistan, 
  • put more sanctions on Russia and Venezuela,
  • wanted to keep muslims out of the U.S. with a travel ban,
  • wanted to build a wall to keep Mexicans and latinos from entering the America, and,
  • get rid of Dreamers. 

It is obvious that Trump is distructive, un-trustworthy and is a person no one, e.g., Mercel of Germany, can do business with.

The political mess in Washington and the stalemate on Britexit in England make one wonder that democracy is probably at the end of its usefulness. I certainly do not think democracy promoted by the U.S. is a viable option to govern. It created disfranchised classes and made national policies the hostages of special interest groups, lobbyists and wealthy donators. 

So, is Trump’s government good for American people? 

I say that it is not. 

What do you think?

Is it possible that America is starring at the onset of a culture revolution American style which is instigated by Trump and encouraged by Trump’s supportors?

You tell me.

The following is some of my thoughts on the divisiveness of Trump the person and his policies. I am trying to draw parallels between the political landscapes in the U.S. and that in Taiwan. I finished my thoughts on the U.S. and I am still working on my viewpoints on Taiwan. 

It was written in Chinese.

分裂

一個分裂的社會是一個停滯不前或著逐步落後的社會。

當政客把階級之間的矛盾作為一個競選的武器,這個矛盾的心理障礙極有可能會演變成階級鬥爭,而這個政府就會被少數的極端分子而左右。這樣的社會一定會動盪不安,人心會猜疑惶恐。這個社會的經濟就會變成投資報酬低落,人才長期外流,競爭優勢下降,經濟成長衰退,薪資不漲反退的窘境。

兩百多年以來,美國一直是一個種族分裂的社會。南北戰爭以後,黑人不再為奴。雖然馬丁路德金在20世紀中爲黑人爭取了法律上平等的地位,可是黑人仍然被白人歧視,壓迫,而白人和黑人之間的直接衝突也一直沒有間斷過。這種種族分裂已經持續兩個世紀了。 雖然美國有法律保障黑人和少數民族(拉丁美洲人和東方人)的福利,可是這只是政客的表面文章。私底下,白人還是看不起黑人和其他人種,這也是黑人和少數民族繼續被歧視的主要原因。

美國黑人長期以來被白人不停的壓迫,但是這個”階級鬥爭”在白人的主流意志統治之下並沒有對整個美國經濟有太多的負面影響。原因是白人當政,黑人(東方人)的影響力太低的緣故。

不過,美國這種白人至上的情況從 2001 年以來已經受到根本的威脅,因為除了黑白衝突以外,美國還經過許多內外夾擊的改變:

。2001 的 911 事件,

。阿富汗和伊拉克戰爭,

。2005 年的房地產泡沫,

。2009 年由美國引起的世界經濟財務危機,

。歐巴馬和茜拉蕊的反蘇俄,反中國外交政策,

。歐巴馬任內將美國推向極端的自由派陣營,

。川普的’美國至上’其實是’白人至上’的偽裝。

這些事件的發生使美國成為一個嚴重分裂的社會。目前,美國有好幾個尖銳的社會衝突。這些衝突在少數政客,保守派和自由派名嘴和網路政治言論的引導之下把美國社會搞得四分五裂:

1。財富不均的分裂;1% 和 99% 的對立,

2。美國白人對黑人的歧視,

3。美國白人對穆斯林教派人的歧視,

4。美國白人對墨西哥和拉丁美洲人的歧視,

5。美國白人對中國人和印度人的歧視,

6。美國保守派和自由派意識形態的分裂。

這些衝突的直接產物就是川普的當選,美國”白人至上”意志的抬頭,也是美國保守派白人的最後掙扎。美國的經濟也在這些衝突之中受到負面的影響,導致GDP成長率下降,聯邦政府入不敷出,國家債務提升,政府政策停滯不前,美金購買力下降,美國也逐漸的喪失了它在世界上的影響力和競爭力。

With more bombs, missile strikes and drone killings of innocent muslims by America and western forces’ killing machines, the hatred against the U.S. and some western countries will only increase and the subsequent revenges will likely continue for years if not centuries. 

The U.S. calls these people terrorists but what do these people call America?

America is proud of their killing machines and its military might.

It never ends for a simple reason.

So many muslims have lost sons, daughters, parents, relatives and friends in the hands of powerful American weapons. It is difficult to image the pain and suffering endured by these muslims.
America should review its foreign policy on Israel, re-evaluate its relationship with Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and all other muslim countries in the Middle East and abandon nations building practices in every continents of the world. 

The U.S. is killing people. The ISI is killing people. America has had its shares of killings over the years.

When will the killing of innocent muslims stop?

Death of innocent children is collateral damage to Pentagon. To Trump and American generals, it is, for the sake of national security, inevitable but necessary.

America’s national interests sometimes equal to killing members of the ISIS and innocent civilians because they are at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Regime change and subsequent nations building with hand-picked candidate are necessary steps to maintain America supremacy in a region.

Economic sanctions and financial control are powerful tools used by America to subvert other nations to obey America’s demands. These tools seldom worked but they always make lives of the people of those countries miserable.

To the muslims, the so-called war on terror is the modern version of crusade. To G.W. Bush after 9-11 and Trump now, the war on terror is a crusade but they just can’t admit it in the public. 

Instead of bows and arrows in the past, America now has missiles equipped with warheads, drones with air to ground missiles and C-130 with MOAB. Instead of horses, America now has Apach helicopters, F-35s stealth fighter, B-52 Stratofortress, destroyers capable of launching cruise missiles, submarines and air carriers.

What do muslims have to fight against the U.S. and other western countries? Guns, IEDs and themselves.

How did the world end up in the situation which we are in right now and how can we get out of the death spiral of self destruction?

I don’t know. Do you?

Do Americans even care? March 25, 2017

Yeah, the Pentagon said that there will be an investigation about civilian deaths in the hands of U.S.-led airstrike in a western neighborhood in Mosul.

Then what? An apology by a Pentagon spokesman is probably all American people will hear six months later. But do American people even care what’s going on in Iraq? Probably not. They care more about Kadashine’s next bf than how many Iraqis got killed by American bombs and missiles.

However, Iraqi people and a lot of people in the Middle East will remember every death in the hands of the U.S. government.

Hatred against the U.S. in the Muslim world perpetuates.

天龍八部插曲 痴情冢

閑來無事把金庸的天龍八部連續劇再看一遍。才開始看,還有一陣子。雖然這個2013的版本並不受觀眾歡迎,可是我還是蠻喜歡的,也很喜歡它的插曲。聽了這首”痴情塚”,被它哀怨無奈的歌詞和悲傷婉轉的旋律吸引住了。

希望你也喜歡。

記得我初中的時候,我們家從五權路的公益社搬到北屯國小對面的北屯新村(後來改成凌雲新村)。我起先是走路上學,由北屯路開始,順著雙十路,經過臺中公園,順著自由路到市立台中一中。放學後,在回來的路上,精武路邊有一個小小的書店擺了一大堆舊書。我這些窮學生就跟其他幾個窮學生一樣天天準時報到,在這個書店裏看不要錢的武俠小說。

後來坐公車上下學,就不來這個舊書店了。不過,天無絕人之路,下課後,我們需要去火車站對面的公車中心搭公車回家。在中正路的北邊,快要到火車站的地方有一個更大的書店,我這個窮學生又找到一個不要錢,不用會員證的免費圖書舘。當然,我不是看參考書,也不看課外讀物,一到這裏就找昨天看過的那一本書,翻到上次看到的地方,繼續往下看。如此,日積月累,許多有名的武俠小說都給我看完了。依稀還記得名字的作者有金庸,臥龍生,古龍,梁羽生,諸葛青雲,等等。至於書名那早就忘記了。

現在大陸影視界非常發達,許多省和一級城市都有電視和電影公司,電影和電視劇沒多久就有新的問世。再加上,許多影視網站都不要錢,隨時想看,隨時有。實在方便。很多有名的武俠電影和電視劇都看過幾次了。想當初,蹲在地上和站在書攤邊上看不要錢的武俠小說,真是不可同日而語呀。

抽空聽一聽這首美麗的歌吧。

痴情冢 – 贾青

眼里柔情都是你 ,
爱里落花水飘零。
梦里牵手都是你 ,
命里纠结无处醒 。
今生君恩还不尽 ,愿有来生化春泥 。
雁过无痕风有情 ,生死两忘江湖里 。

人前笑语花相映
人后哭泣倩谁听
偏生爱的都是你
谁错谁对本无凭
今生君恩还不尽 ,愿有来生化春泥
雁过无痕风有情 ,生死两忘江湖里

Source: Google image search

至於電視劇中那幾個主角,他們痴情到不可理喻的地步在現在已經不多見了。

你說痴情好還是放得下好?

是愛人但不被愛好還是被愛卻不愛他好?

天龍八部有非常濃郁的佛家思想。但是,天底下真正看得開,放得下的有幾個呢?

可是,話說回來,天底下又有幾個會跟電視劇裏的主角一樣那麽痴情,那麽執著的呢?

看來鑽牛角尖的比較多吧。

America: Particularly Concerned January 3, 2016

The United States official position on the execution of a prominent Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi Arabia Is this:

Particularly Concerned

That’s it.

No condemnation. Nothing critical. No disapproval. Just concerned. Particularly.

America the hypocrite is particularly good at using double standard on carrying out its foreign policy.

One standard for its friends.

Another one for its enemies.
