Coronavirus - Taiwan 2021

Well, not so many of the pilots probably live in Taoyuan and the special tea services are probably also better in Greater Taipei

Thinking towards the future and Taiwan?

Why should that make a difference?

I used to think DPP were much more competent than KMT. Now, I think they both suck, but just different flavors of suck. I think if KMT was in charge when the COVID outbreak first happened last year, maybe we would’ve been hit by the first wave like the other countries, but maybe they also would have been stricter with the lockdown measures.

Because we would think shops and restaurants and domestic services being closed as an equally bad thing. I imagine the government would just view as collateral damage in keeping export and IC running

Lucky you! We have a special thread for you to play in:

Enjoy!

And that so many restaurants are people’s kitchens since so many eat out instead of cook.

I think there is a round of bailouts in the legislator right now, aimed at food stands, taxi drivers, and the like…

yeah, will be shit.

Last round all I got was 10,000nt. All of it went to the landlords.

Which I really think the bailouts are for the landlord class.

I think this time it’s something like 10,000nt for 3 months.

He was thick as a brick, but none of his policies personally harmed me. Then again, there wasn’t really much opportunity to cause harm. 80% of the reason people hated him was his arrogant personality and ignorance of basic facts, kind of like Trump. If he kept his mouth shut and attended to his mayoral duties more, I don’t think he would’ve won the presidency, but he might still be Kaohsiung mayor. Kind of getting off track now… hypothetically if he were President I think he would’ve been terrible, just in a different KMT esque way. My feeling is he would’ve gone the anti-science strongman route like Bolsonaro, Duterte or… well… Trump.

Domestic consumption is held up by all the small eateries and drink (bubble tea) shops. Night markets.

Do you have a source?
