Don't put your lives in the hands of the KMT

Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) (Chinese Nationalist Party [KMT]) has been Taiwan's president since May 20, 2008, and he's making the so-called "incompetence" of his predecessor Chen Shui-bian's (陳水扁) Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) look like OMNIpotence.

In the wake of Typhoon Kalmaegi (卡玫基颱風), the Ma administration put a half-page ad in the China Times (中國時報) and United Daily News (聯合報) listing phone numbers that people could call if they needed help. The ad said 「你馬上打來,我們馬上救你」 ("if you call right away, you'll be rescued right away"). A reporter from SET News (三立新聞) found that some of these numbers just rang and rang, others led to recordings saying to "call back during regular office hours," and still others were busy and couldnt be accessed even after dialing for half an hour.

After the recent earthquake in Sichuan Province, China (a whole other country!), Ma and his wife operated the phones in order to raise donations for the victims of that disaster. After Kalmaegi, dedicated phone lines should have been set up to handle the *domestic* emergencies, but people who needed help were left to fend for themselves. People have fallen through damaged bridges, been washed away by raging rivers, been buried in mudslides, and have suffered many more tragedies.

Ma's biggest campaign slogans were 「馬上就會好」 ("Things will get better right away when Ma becomes president") and 「我們準備好了!」 ("We are ready!"), so his more recent ironic statements about 「苦民所苦」 ("I feel the people's pain") should fall on deaf ears as once again, the words of Ma and his administration have been proven to be utter bullshit.

The Saturday, July 19, 2008 edition of Talking Show (大話新聞) told viewers about the latest madness from the mis-administration of "Mr." Ma Ying-jeou.

Don't fall for the KMT's empty promises, and don't put your lives in their hands. Remember that the KMT blocked the DPP's water management budget with their legislative majority:
KMT: The party of opposition (擋擋黨)

You've been fooled more than twice. Please don't get fooled again!
