Taiwan Is A Country 台灣是一個國家

“Is Taiwan is an independent country?”
“Yes, of course! You see I have a Taiwan Passport.” “Any question?”

馬辦要蔡回應獨不獨 網友訝異:台灣不是國家嗎?

〔轉載20110729 自由電子報〕
馬英九競選辦公室「台灣加油讚」發言人殷瑋,今(29)日公開質疑民進黨主席蔡英文的兩岸政策立場,問蔡英文「願意公開宣示不獨嗎?」言論一出讓網友十分詫異,反問馬辦「不獨,那現在是選哪一國的總統?」

 網友普遍質疑,馬英九身為一國元首,居然還要求準備競選總統的對手候選人宣示「不獨」。ptt實業坊網友「cyberridder」就說:「本來就獨了,幹嘛宣布獨不獨?」另外網友「kyogoku」則反問馬辦:「這什麼邏輯?一個國家居然要不獨?」

 網友「nik351235」質疑,如果馬英九要對手宣示「不獨」,那台灣現在到底是選哪一國的總統?網友「pttdog」則希望馬辦在質疑對手前,先請馬英九回答:「願不願宣示不統?」

 網友「cloudwolf」則是KUSO馬英九「不統、不獨、不武」的兩岸三不政策,是「不排除統一、不可能獨立、不抵抗武力」。

 馬辦近日火力全開,幾乎每日一篇新聞稿批評民進黨,但網路上也出現反彈聲浪,網友「urdie」就批評「嘴砲治國、人民無感」,「maverick01」則諷刺地說:「馬英九早晚會被馬辦的人害使(害死)。」

Hedy Lamarr 海蒂拉瑪

美麗而聰明的女人-海蒂拉瑪

Hedy Lamarr (November 9, 1913 – January 19, 2000), an Austrian-American actress, co-invented with composer George Antheil an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary to wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.
video

海蒂拉瑪在1940年代拍了18部影片。她最大的成功是1949年最賣座聖經故事的電影中演「參孫和大利拉」的大利拉。這裡是這部電影最後結束的一段。

Hedy Lamarr made 18 films from 1940 to 1949. She enjoyed her biggest success as Delilah in Cecil B. DeMille's Samson and Delilah, the highest-grossing film of 1949, with Victor Mature as the Biblical strongman. Here is the ending of the film.

Taiwan Affair 台灣事務

※Taiwan is an independent country, not a district of China.
駁王毅-內政問題
中國國台辦主任王毅日前在美國華府表示: 「台灣問題是中國的內政,需要兩岸中國人協商來加以解決。同時我們希望包括美國在內的相關國家,也能夠為此發揮積極的作用」。
馬英九政府終極統一的親中政策, 「一中各表」是騙台灣人民的技倆; 中國早已認定台灣是轄區, 馬政府也私下偷偷地認同了。
台灣鄉親們, 把握您們手中那張選票, 投給愛護台灣主權的總統和立委候選人。
※鄭重聲明: 台灣(中華民國)是一個主權獨立的國家,不是中國的內政問題, 不屬中國

I Am A Taiwanese 我是台灣人

(轉載文圖) 國民黨馬英九競選連任辦公室昨(27)日推出「I am a R.O.Cer」T恤和徽章,民進黨發言人梁文傑今(28)日表示,雖然「I am a R.O.Cer」的創意很有趣,但「R.O.Cer」在國際上卻容易被誤解,不明白馬辦在國家認同上出了什麼問題,網友也紛紛表示不妥,認為直接打「I am a Taiwanese」不就得了。

梁文傑表示,除了中華民國外,全世界還有8個國家也可簡稱為R.O.C,穿下「I am a R.O.Cer」T恤後,外國人可能會問「你是代表哪一個國家」?梁文傑強調,「這事情不是可以KUSO的遊戲啊!」民進黨發言人陳其邁也表示,若馬辦非 得要穿T恤,就穿印有中華民國國旗和寫著「台灣」衣服的字樣就好,也不用中國大官一來,又把國旗撤掉。

網友也紛紛認為T恤印製「I am a R.O.Cer」字樣不妥,網友Hollowcorpse更直言:「直接說I'm from Taiwan 很難噢」。

Choose A Watermelon 挑西瓜

如何挑西瓜

西瓜甜不甜- 外皮, 蒂頭漏玄機。
路邊一整車西瓜,到底哪一顆才是好瓜,賣西瓜三十幾年的陳先生,用看的就看得出來。西瓜底部的圈圈,越小越好,切開來看,果然,果肉又紅又紮實。
相反的,底部圈圈越大皮越厚越難吃,切開證實,不但不夠紅,還帶點白白的肉,明顯甜度大扣分。除了看西瓜底,也要看西瓜頭,就是所謂的蒂頭,如果是直直的一條線,不要,如果是捲曲圈起來的,馬上買。
還有西瓜紋路和顏色,紋路整齊就是好瓜,如果花紋亂七八糟,裡面肯定也是一團糟,顏色呢,最好挑青綠色,不要拿霧霧白白的瓜,掌握瓜頭捲,瓜尾小,瓜紋正,和瓜色綠這四大原則,保證你用看的就能買到滿意的瓜。

In Loving Memory of Ms. Sylvia Kostelic, the energized bunny.

追悼柯施維亞女士

樂觀活躍似小兔子93歲的柯施維亞女士於今晨(110719)4時蒙上主恩召回天家。求上帝安慰遺族。
Email from her daughter: "I have been in touch with many of you for weeks, giving you updates on my mom. About 3 weeks ago, she went into the hospital with congestive heart failure. She thought that she could beat it so she told the doctors to do what ever they can. After an attempt to open her heart valve was unsuccessful, the doctors said there wasn't anything more they could do. Mom tried to recover, but a decision was made to send her to a hospice home in Washington, PA. Here we visited her for 11 days. The nurses said that she was a strong women. That sick little heart just kept going, and going and going. We always called her the energized bunny. At 92 1/2 she was remarkable .
Today, Tuesday, July 19th mom past away around 4 am. We do not have final arrangements made, but I will let you know as soon as they are made."
May God Comfort you and your family.

12 Top Bible Verses 十二條聖經金句

Top 12 Most Important Verses From The Bible
民調選出十二條最重要聖經金句
According to a survey done by ListAfterList.com, these are the top twelve most important verses in the Bible.
1. 約翰福音 John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, will have everlasting life."
This verse is so important because it shows that God loved the world (Every person who has ever been born or will be born) so much that He was willing to allow His one and only Son to be born into the sin filled world; just so we can live eternal life with Him one day, if we chose to.
2. 申命記 Deuteronomy 31:8 - "And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. he will be with you, He will not leave you nore forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed."
In this verse Joshua is speaking to the Isrealites, telling them not to be afraid to battle with their enemies beause the Lord will never leave their side. This verse is so comforting to us, as Christians, because God says that He will never leave us or forsake, He is always there. So whenever one feels alone, he can know that God is always there beside him, every step of the way.
3. 腓立比書 Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me."
Whenever you feel you can't go on, or something is too difficult, think of this verse and know that you can do all things through Christ, because He is the one giving you the strength.
4. 馬太福音 Matthew 6:33-34 - "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Important for anyone who worries a lot.
5. 以弗所書 Ephesians 4:29 - "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."
A good reminder that if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything.
6. 羅馬書 Romans 8:28 - "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
Everything that happens to us occurs for a reason. We can grow stronger through suffering. We can comfort others after experiencing our own losses/illnesses. With God there are no accidents.
7. 馬可福音 Mark 11:23 - "For verily I say unto you that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 'Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea', and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he sayeth shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he sayeth."
Because "silent" faith does no good. The work of faith is speaking. One gets what one needs not by only believing it, but by saying it.
8. 耶利米書 Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord: thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
This illustrates a loving God, not a cruel judge, who wants the best for mankind.
9. 彼得前書 1 Peter 2:24 - "He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed."
Jesus died for all mankind so that we could have eternal life.
10. 哥林多前書 1 Corinthians 10:13 - "No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it."
Shows that every challenge and temptation you face is a test from God, and everything you are faced with, you can overcome.
11.創世記 Genesis 4:7 - "If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it."
Shows that everyone is faced with a decision to do wrong or right. However, you may not be accpeted if you do wrong, but you will have God.
12. 雅各書 James 1:19-20 - "My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires."
Everyone needs to talk less and listen more.
