Don’t weep too much over this. All this committee was, was:
One: a chance to go hear Crazy Annette talk nonsense for an hour or two, while nodding from time to time, and then, as a prize, have one of those salmonella infected government lunch boxes that the wise and wary toss in the trash uneaten.
Two: a nice big title to add to your already crowded name card
Three: sign off on some vague nonsense filled White Paper
Four: a mechanism to get tax payers money to fund your own Mom and Pop Human Right NGO. How you worked this angle was after the meeting schmooze up to Crazy Annette or her handler (whose name eludes me right this minute) and tell them you want to "form an NGO to look into the issue of human rights violations that occur in Aboriginal Dwarf Tossing events in Yunlin and then present your findings to the United Nations Human Rights Commission (the key mantra is "UN, UN, UN",) and so esteemed Inventor of Human Rights Ms. Vice President Luo may I have a nice big bite from the pork barrel of taxpayer money". And Crazy Annette will say "sure", to show her Imperial beneficence. You are expected to kiss her ring and tell her how her fake tatooed on eyebrows along with the high gloss blue eye shadow look "very natural and attractive".
You probably think I am kidding about this, but I am not. The reason the LY wants this shut down is because:
a. they despise Crazy Annette and
b. they don’t want Crazy Annette just giving away money
yours in NGO economics,
p.s. the real ass kicking government human rights committee is the Executive Yuan one---the one I am on!!
(i.e. the行政院人權保障推動小組)—just kidding, that one does nothing either but at least we don’t cost the taxpayers any (or much) money.
Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown
