that he will
clean-up the corruption in our system.
He told us
that he has as high expection of himself as we do of
him. He asked us to be more patient and be supportive
of him. He know where the problems are but it will
take time to fix those complicated
Personaly, I will give him 4 years. If I do not see positive
changes in 4 years, I will give other people a shot.
> look at ex-president Lee and the current
THey are totally different. Lee was corrupted, but not
I am very certain you are just a
mainlander in disguise who obviously couldn't tell the
difference among Taiwanese. Most of mainlanders have the
tendencies to lump all Taiwanese together.
> Late comers are more open-minded than the
Fujian invaders. At least we got some land back from
Fujian invaders during the
land reform intiated by
late arrivers, KMT.
That's a bunch of bull.
KMT initiated the land reform so they could
re-distribute the land to the newly arrived mainlanders. Read
your history. There was no sympathy for the original
inhibitants during KMT's rule.

a scapegoat of everything bad.
the dirties politician around. During the election,
he claimed he never Y any money, until his
multi-billion bank accounts were exposed.
He then led
the effort to impeach our president. But it went no
where. He is now very quiet about the whole impeachment
fiasco. That way he could later blame the failure to
Very dirty indeed.
> 1) Abian is too egotistic, too coneited and
not trustworthy. Worse than Chiang Kai-shek!
Abien is at least 10 times better than CKS. There is no
comparison between the two. During CKS's rule, if you said
anything against KMT you would be put in jail
automatically. There is no comparison.
We should all
thank DPP and Abien for their fight for democracy and
human rights in Taiwan. Otherwise, we will still living
under corrupted KMT with no freedom of speech and no
justice for anyone who speaks out.
Abian is a lawyer who makes good money. Besides,
KMT basicly live with him to monitor every moves he
made. He would be exposed if he step out of
On the other hands, song was a KMT official who does
not make much (less than 100,000 a month) and his
wife stay home. Yet he owns 3 houses in Taipei (not
apartment) and a piece of land in Taipei county. If you are
from Taiwan you should know how much a house in Taipei
(with basement and garage) worth. Do your math and tell
me how long will it take to save that kind of
As far as Wowbothway's argument, my answer is to
look at China. CCP is so corrput that Newsweek has a
special report on it. Yet, China economy has been
booming. It is safe to say, China will be im much better
shape if they do not have those corrupt incompetent
Have you ever see a Taiwanese business
man who does not know English yet he ventures to USA
and Europe to sell his product ? I have. It has been
15 years but I can still remember what he told me.
He said to me that he will be very grateful if the
KMT goverment can stay out his way. Those businessmen
were here to attand a trade show but the KMT trade
officials who supposed to help them went visiting their
kids as soon as the airplane landed in LA. They
re-appeared one day before the trade show and threaten to
report them if they do not put on KMT flags in their
booth. The Chiacago tool show organier consider that a
political gesture and would not allow the display of flags
in the booth. Guess, how they solve the problem ?
They collect some money and send him to tour Niagara
Song disclosed that he owns 3 houses (not
apartment) in Taipei and a piece of land. Those properties
worth at least 50 millions NT. In addition, he also
help paying the down payment for the first of the 5
houses his son owns. Song was a KMT party official
making less than 100,000 NT a month. Song is in the work
force for less than 20 years. How can he have that kind
of money ??
Song's kid is a high tech
executives ? Which company he is with ? Either Song Jr. must
be able to walk on water to rise to that level in 3
years or Dirty Song was the owner of that company.
> His son is a high tech executive and can
easily and legitimately own 5 houses
His son is a 20 something who just got off his 2 year
tour of duty in the military. He is no high tech
executive. He is a rotten SOB who lives on his father's
not for corruption, but for abetting corruption.
His son is a high tech executive and can easily and
legitimately own 5 houses (not mansion as quoted). Since real
estate value in SF area went up 10X in the past years,
Soong can easily have NT$Bs legally.
Soong is unwilling or unable to report to the proper
authority of the corruption committed by his boss and
KMafia, and therefore he is guilty of abetting the
corruption. Similar comment can be made about Abian and
Corruption does not generate a booming economy, as it is the
booming economy that ignite the corruption.
Taiwan is a democracy now
and no one should go to jail without a fair trial. If
the government finds enough evidence it will
prosecute Soong accordingly. Unfortunately, many of the
corruption and bribes occurred years ago and it's becoming
difficult obtaining evidence. But just look at Soong's
multi-billion dollar bank accounts and the 5 mansions located
in SF bay area owned by his son.
Exactly. People are talking the
same thing about Abian; look at his account,
The law should be assumed innocence until proven
How can you assume Song is guilty and not
Actually, I found Dr. Song is gaining popularity,
especially among minority. Abian is getting less and less
Wowgoner asked a very good question: if KMT is so
corrupted, why the economy was booming until recently? Does
corruption creates economy? It is a sarcastic question with
obvious answer: Of course not! It is obvious.
Accordingly, corruption may have been only in your
imagination. Just like what happened in culture revolution. It
is a legitimate question. To me, it is a good
