Taiwan and Israel share some similarities in the geo-political arena, and surely more disparities between them...

Sun Lasting About 9 million Jewish-American population (including groups of affinity) is an "unfathomable" manifestation in the US. Many of them are relatively successful (be aware, could be a "positive" stereotype !) and quite "influential" in the US, in particular, the linguistic/communicative capacity - the most powerful weaponry to be a good warrior in the international battlefield - since English is still a strategically dominant language in this world. Mr. Natayahu said it all as a Harvard alumnus. You might notice that his opponents (or enemies, if you like) might not have the similar opportunities or "life chances" as he enjoys ! I think he speaks better English than that of those "elected" special interest groups bravo-ing him in the Capitol Hill - haha, my bias.

Stacy Paige Okay first you're not saying anything that the world doesn't know. 99% of Jews are successful and have been since the biblical times. Into doing we are less than 2% of the population of the entire world I would say yes it's very successful not quite sure what that has to do with Taiwan

Sun Lasting I see, mainly it is about the geo-political dimension. Taiwan faces a gigantic and formidable counterpart, and I think the pressure on Israel is no less than that of Taiwan. ( I am trying to be "neutral" ! ) I have friends and folks from different race, ethnicity, class, nationality, religion, and the rest of diverse groups.

Sun Lasting Similar risk taking, different scales: domestic vs. international - "RTW" (Right To Work to stir up national attention) and "address to the US 'partial' State of Union" (showering in the international lime-light).
大規模造勢運動.(還好不是造神 !) = each case, in their better shape, for resource mobilization; fortunately, still far away from the saint/sage-creation stage... ( 幕後藏鏡人才是厲害 - see the invisible faces).

Steven Deckelman Stacy Paige , I think she means that both Israel and Taiwan are (relatively) small countries (geographically) surrounded by much larger hostile forces.

What is the biggest piece of dirty linen of Wisconsin?

How was Wisconsin turned into a generous Stepping Stone of an individual's ambition?

Are you also a disciple of Rockefeller Sr., abiding "We need a nation of [ignorant or repressed] workers, not thinkers..."

The good news is - Just having a nice short story done for children.

Feb 27 (F), 2015. The Tossed-Away Lives and Found

Sun Lasting
1 hr · Edited ·

Mrs. Lou and her husband (deceased) have been raising 18 abandoned infants throughout their lives. She teaches her children (all orphans, the youngest is only 7) " Making your kindness a habit - it is not difficult to do. Just do it!"
The couple live by collecting people's "toss-away", "unwanted items", and garbage. They collect hundreds and thousand of garbage bins and tanks yearly, then recycling the rubbish to make a living.
At age 91 now, She says," I am collecting all sort of human discards and toss-away, and among them, babies from the dump-sites are the most precious... I love every one of them. I brought them home and enjoy watching them growing..." - brief by Sun Lasting heart emoticon!

Sun Lasting  Do you think that Mrs. Lou is a pro-live, a pro-choice, pro both, or what ??.... I guess Mrs Lou might suggest that a proper pre-marital education, or reasonable sex education embedded in a responsible- functional family within a healthy economic system without dominant ideological controlling - might prevent some "unwanted, undesirable, accidental, and castaway babies" from happening again and again??

As one critic indifferently said that some people made babies like the hen (some, surely with the aids of the roosters) laying eggs??? Has Mrs Lou ever wondered why the education, family, religion, the economic systems and the rest of social institutions allow this type of tragedies continuously to happen? How many more Shades of Biological Greats are needed? How many female sentient beings are able to confront this bio-economic delusion and constraints?

Sun Lasting One the other hand, the 20th Dugger baby was born a short while ago. Is the 21st baby on the way? Aerospace scientists say that moving to the Mar is possible. But don't we prefer a 2nd Earth-like Planet with enough Oxygen "equally" for everyone, which is better for another 7 billion human sentient beings to flourish, OR an "Equal Chance" to Survive ? !

Surely, you have to admit the existing power hierarchy in this episode.

Breaking GREAT news to the 51% of Wisconsinites - Don't you feel proud of being the majority for choosing a great leader aiming at presidency, by fully developing/"developed" this great state into a a nice piece of stepping stone:)!??? Isn't Wisconsin a kind, generous, and super-smart state among the 50??!!!!

Isn't it amazing, the Wisconsin socio-econo-political Clock will be re-wounded back to 100 years ago??!!! Congratulations to those who cannot wait for the Bill to be passed ! - A progressive state is going BACKward to a fantastic direction at WHOSE's COST???? Thank you, voters, and congratulate the future of America!

Here it goes:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker backed a surprise move Friday by Republican legislators to quickly vote on making Wisconsin a right-to-work state, an action the likely 2016 presidential candidate initially said should be delayed to avoid re-igniting massive pro-union protests.

Sun Lasting  I am not a fan of Credentialism. But with a high school diploma can be a governor or president, I found it amazing and inspiring. Some people enjoy being ruled/governed by this unique "quality".

Now many parents can relax more. for Gates-Jobs-aristocracy, and now one more drop-out genius can be your children's Role Model. Isn't it another Horatio-Alger resurrection, if not reincarnation, in the 21st century !??

Sun Lasting The reality was, my dilemma to post the above messages. I did see the consequences of what I did, in fact, one of them was helping this person's campaign strategy - a FREE broadcasting to my 4,800 fb friends. Forgive me, dear friends with consciousness: my feeble-minded acts...

Just now, fine, you asked why I cares? Ohhh, yes, in addition to the common care/concerns we share, one more tiny thing is that almost of our students are wage workers for the private business/industries, not to mention those who have no access to opportunities for a post-secondary education. In many other countries, workers' voice is valued and protected by government - this is not a news at all.

Here is just a well-known trivia via public data:
The CEOs of S&P 500 Index company made, on average, 354 times the average wages of rank-and-file U.S. workers in 2012. CEOs in the United States don’t just make a lot more money than their own employees. On average, U.S. CEOs also make far more than CEOs of comparably sized companies in other developed countries. Click on each country to compare:

The SEC is currently considering a rule that would require companies to disclose their CEO-to-worker pay ratio, and is accepting comments from people like you until Dec. 2nd 2013. Please take a few moments to comment to help the SEC decide the best way to implement this law: Ask for CEO-to-Worker Pay
U.S.A.354*Source: BLSClose

U.S.A.Average CEO annual Compensation $12,259,894
Average Worker annual Compensation               $34,645

Again, a forever old and stale question in the US since John D. Rockefeller Sr. - why does the millions of dollars of income sound so vulnerable and feeble that needs to mobilize the political lobbyists and politicians to nurture, protect, and surely spoil? Mindfully, too, wage/salary gaps are just a tip of this deadly stratified iceberg!!!!

Mary Shepardson When you look at how many people in the last election-worst voter turnout since the 40's-less than 17% voted for the crook. I think many people have given up. I'm not saying that's the right thing to do but just what happened. It is very depressing!
