DPP must wisen-up and stop grandstanding.
They should support letting Django beef in but
make legislation for strict labelling of meat and other food products origin and hazards.

DPP should know that Taiwan is no match for US hegemony.

They should trust that the Taiwanese are wise enought to decide to eat American beef or not.

Mainland China's position on Taiwan is crystal clear: there is only one China and that Taiwan is part of China; the People's Republic of China will achieve reunification of the island and mainland. Taiwan cannot claim independence as a distinct State.

TAIWAN must realise that its destiny is with china.

The DPP wil oppose all of Pres. Ma's policies to the end.

So if Ma plans to declare a new republic the DPP will also be against it!

If the DPP's claim that they are against US beef imports to safeguard the health of the Taiwanese then they should also ban cigarettes, betel buts, pesticide laden fruits and veggies and chemical tainted drinks.

The DPP should be practical and instead propose that US beef should be properly labelled like cigaretes with a clear warning sign .

It's then up to people to eat or smoke.

How many DPP legislators smoke?
