Red envelopes for low-and middle-income households - DPP trying to get back the trust from public?


#121

wave power? Or how about peddle power? And we could pay people on low incomes to do the peddling. Give them a little extra money


#122

Sounds like somebody’s planning on running for office. Good luck!


#123

No just planning on going for lunch


#124

I’d say you’re highly overqualified.


#125

Tsai is friggin awesome.

Pension problem solved.
Tourism from southbound countries and Japan/Korea up.
Relations with the US better than ever.

If you think Madame English did well, I think President Obama accomplished far more given the circumstances…

DPP’s mid-term election went the path of Democract’s 2016 election, foreign interests manipulated social media to distribute lies and altered public opinion by shelling out lots of money and invading people’s data privacy.

Han Guoyu is an idiot, not as much of one as Trump, but they are both made out to be some great saviour to the demographics that mattered in that election, older generation of the privileged majority.


#127

Fact check false. The influence of “foreign interests” on the 2016 election was less than minuscule.


#128

I prefer a government that do nothing, rather than that do many wrong things.


#129

I usually hear that from true KMT supporters.


#130

You’re saying Tando is a KMT supporter? If so, so what?


#131

It is confirmed by US intelligence that Russia did access Cambridge Analytica and purchased ads on facebook and other social media. I would like to see how they conclude that the impact is “miniscule”. If ads plus facebook target audience don’t work, facebook wouldn’t have made as much money as they did.


#132

The amount they spent on ad buys (6,000 dollars!) was minuscule compared to what the Democrat and Republican parties spent. Literally less than a drop in the bucket. Check out the Parscale interview. It may open your eyes. Or maybe not.


#133

So, I do a lot of marketing on Facebook and if I measured the success of my campaigns based on how much I spent I would go bankrupt


#134

I don’t really care if Tando is a KMT supporter. I’m merely stating that’s a popular statement for KMT supporters to make.

They would make that statement to excuse the KMT for absolutely doing nothing while holding absolute control of the government. KMT usually enjoyed a majority in the legislature when they are in power, yet they do absolutely nothing to improve working conditions, say giving workers 2 rest days per week, yet heavily criticize the DPP when they don’t commit to the 2 rest days.

The same can be said about the pension crisis, green power, Aboriginal rights, marriage equality, and the list goes on. Aside from pushing to tie Taiwan’s economy to depend on Chinese economy, KMT does next to nothing because apparently they don’t want to do the wrong things.


#135

It’s still figuratively.

A pedant writes.


#136

How many votes do you think you can buy for 6,000 dollars? Enough to swing an American election? What a complete joke.


#137

I plead Millennial usage rules. :sunglasses:


#138

The ads they bought are but a small part of their operation. They also coordinated the release of fake information with the Trump campaign and wiki-leaks. Russia buying that 6000 dollar worth of targeted facebook ads is like lighting a match and throwing it in a room full of methane they’ve setup.


#139

I highly doubt only 6k was spent, already the salaries of the Russians indicted in relation to the elections would have been more than 6k


#140

6K on ad buys. Reading skills. And this whole narrative about how the evil genius Russians had a huge influence the American election is just ludicrous.
