Emelk, I like your line. Father Felix said a prayer that is worth using. " Lord, Forgive us for it is our fault to have voted for them". Someone mentioned something about us not being able to really express our minds, as that is how we were raised and taught to believe. If a palauan comes out to the open and speak his mind, he seen as disrespectful and radical. If a foreigner comes and tear into us, we crawl right back into our shell and not saying anything back. When a palauan expresses his mind, he tends to incoporate a slurge of profanity just so he could be heard, and so on and so forth. Let's take a look at Diaz. That guy is one heck of a smart fellow. When you talk to him in person, he is always careful for his words, as he knows how narrow minded folk deals with their shorcomings. Only in the radio station, he blabbers like there's no tomorrow. When someone finally calls in and tries to correct him, he would slap him with phrases so thick they have to be drilled into the ears, or simply just hang up on them. So Cio's ways may and could be justifiable but, sometimes, at the place like OEK, it is a bit overwhelming. Most of them if not all, deserves a cuss right into their faces, because they are aparently there for their own gain and purposes. What is best at the moment is either start a petition against the whole OEk, or wait until 2012. I want to believe that all of us want to make a drastic change in the way we ourselves discipline us, even if we need to change the way our 2000 years old disciplinary rule have inflicted our behaviours, and the way we are going up against the changing world. Once we get that out of the way, then every words known and can be used in the new era leadership in politics could be defined and fall into their places. So I for one is not supporting what Cio did as I think of it as childish and unrpofessional, but giving the rest of us a well assured state of mind, I would say, He needs to be replaced as he too is just as bad as the rest of us...but when he is replaced, who would then be his replacement? That is the what I'm saying. Somehow, I have a feeling that it is not the person. It is the name Olbiil Ra Kelulau (OEK) that make monsters out of good people. I'd better go before I starts sounding like Diaz... Cheuas

Harry, One of the terms we find in politics is leadership. If Cio lacks the skills, then what is his place sitting along with rest of the delegates, and calling himself a leader. Kayangel may have smaller voter count, but the trust of the people who placed Del. Kemesong to represent their interest is just as great and valuable as the rest of the states of Palau. Cio wears his sunglasses during sessions, and one could superficially assume that he may be hiding his blood shot eyes, or crazy eye balls due to being under the influence of something. As a result, he uses derogatory language in a public building, and yet, the most his peers could do is remove him from a chairmanship? I'd say, replace him with someone who knows and instills respect in his leadership. Someone that the people could count on for their trust. And finally someone that does not openly ridicule himself and his state for his radical and hostile manuevery. Now before he acts again! ........Cheuas

We have to note that at current, the proposed law to train palauans to become skilled workers have not been passed. Our infrastructure was built by foreign workers because we all know that most of us do not prefer the dirty work. Yes, Palau's security is at stake but it is due to our inability to track down or back tracking a foreigners background to see whether or not he/she has the full elligibility to work in Palau. Of the 6000 workers, only 3000 are paying taxes, but who responsibility is that? Why can't our government starts thinking about beefing up the capabilities of our immigration, labor, tax office, police, customs, and quarantine to insure that, as the first line of defense, everything and everyone could stop at the border before they come in. There were instances where individuals are suspicious based on his reasons to visit, but because it is costly to run a background check, we allow them in on visa. That starts it all! Also, in the application, they filled in that they are fluent in english language, but no labor or immigration is there to ensure that everything in that application needed verification. One does not have to be higly educated to know that a chinese, bangladeshi, filipino, or any foreign worker speaks the english language, and that beocmes their leeway. If we continue to accept them by a bunch like now, but are unable to run checks on them, or simply not doing pre check at points of entries, then no matter how good our law sound, will always be same. And the next thing we know, they have multiplied by numbers. CNMI's labor act was monopolized by a few officials and business tycoons, that now their labor, immigration and law enforcement agencies are suffering. Since this president have come up with probably the first and the only sound idea, it is best for him to also put claws and sharper teeth so that not only these foreigners, but our international neighbors would know that Palau is keen on its security by way of scrutinizing their labor applicants to only accept those who are skilled by trade, education and training. And still, background checks continues to ensure that we have not accepted known criminals, ill intended persons, or terrorists. No matter what we do, our country's defense is a responsibility of US. And this covers mainly our ports of entries. If US sees that our borders are not safe as a jumping ground to US soils, then even we palauans will be labelled as potential criminals or terrorists as our laws are vulnerable. I think this intent is good and our president needs to really put down all these. Cheuas

Look at you Islander! You are the only one here who appears different, why? Because you are! You are right! This country is ours, not yours. And the reason why you still think that that tie with Malaysia will help Palau only puts you where we all know that you do not care for anything else but your economic interests which you are looking to gain from that tie. I'll tell you, If that deal is better than it sounds, it would have been forged a long time ago. Why it has not is the fact that, it is people like you whose interest and support are so clear that the whole deal is easily seen through, and all that may pose higher and much dangerous risks in it. No one is blaming JT for this or that. JT made a promise to the people. A promise that he had not kept. Or was that a big political BS that he had to make to earn votes? If so, then it is best for him to say it into the people's face. JT knew exactly what he was getting himself into, and now you are making excuses for him? Get lost Islander! So like I told you before, Speak Palauan or Shut up! This beef does not concern you or UK no matter how smart you think you are. Let the Palauans talk about their beloved country, and what's left of that talk may be given to you to only think about, but as far as discussing anything to that regards with us, is out of your league. Say a paragraph or 2 in Palauan, so we may know that you are among us. Since when have we talked negatively about England or what you should do to your economy, or your queen or your prince Pick number and wait in the corner.... Cheuas...

It is sad to realize that, this President now appears to not know how to run his country. Instead of Macromanaging Palau, he is micromanaging senseless situations that had already have people managing or directing. During his wednesday press, he sounded desperate, tired, confused and defensive. I think Palau will remain stagnant for the next 3 and 1/2 years until we elect a true and competent person to run it. There's an old saying that goes. " Bom sebechii a kelel Ngersuul". Or, "Alii ke remos ra blelekl". I wonder where everyone went. This issue is hot, and we need not hide anymore. To hell with our ID's. I have been coming here as Cheuas and no one knows who I is...c'mon folks, let's make this talkable... Cheuas...

Did anyone listen to the press release this morning? I think either the president was not prepared or he was struggling for his answers. Like always, he would say something anyone would like to hear, but never the truth. Why is there an outcry regarding financial instability and economic downfall? Because none of what he promised is coming true. So now he is trying hard to impress the public with his FIB Law? I think the economic stimulus, government salary and medical insurance are going to happen when the lection draws near. Alii, 100 days was came out of your lips, not 1000 days....

Delulchum, I'm sorry if I sound judgemental but the "A" folks are recongnized, praised, talked about and then placed in thier respective positions (Higer Grounds). The "B" Folks are lessed talked of beacuse they seem ok. They can manage their work quite ok. The "C" and "D" Folks are encouraged, desciplined and placed on a purgative positions because there is still a chance for the better. The "F" Folks are those, we do not need, who rejects changes, do not listen, selfish, lack the mentality and the smarts to reason, cannot even walk on their own, cannot even see beyond their height and the list goes on.... I would like to think that, most of them are on Lvel C&D, but come closer to the next election, maybe some have moved up to "B" or "A", and the rest have gone to "F". Thanks, Cheuas....

"We need the population increase so whatever factor that can contribute to it should be welcomed".- Ha,ha,ha,ha....That's a good point Santy! Thanks, I didn't think that but, hey... I guess the main issue boils down to power savings. Changing our time cycle is good, but the important issue is how we change our attitude and start realizing that everything is costly, and our laws could be changed several times over, but could still prove no benefit if the real concept remain not grasped. But after this becomes law, we'll probably be jetlagged for a while until our physical system adjusts to the cycle. Just one of my foolish thoughts.... While at it, isn't it also helpful to mandate also for a giant solar clock to be installed centrally to help as well? Sulang for your thoughts... Cheuas

No too long ago, Palau installed its very own traffic lights. The purpose was to regulate the traffic congestion. Activation of this lights happens to coincide with the festival of arts. It was believed to have been put up to impress our neighboring countries that our roads are controlled by lights. After that, we started having cops do it manually because the lights proved to be an obsticle. So.....they were dismantled, and the where abouts? Who knows? Another move made to spend tax payers money. Now, the street lights. I'd say, since they are situated in the heart of koror, they probably serve as barrigades for vehicles that veers off control, instead of hitting BOH and PRA, they hit lights first. The solar system at the hospital, generates half of the power system in the hospital, while major appliance and medical equipments are generated by PPUC. A good slice of power bills to BNH. Why don't Palau get these kinds of lights. With the economy stagnating and fluxuating rates, it is best to settle for these, if we are really into saving. Let's all wait and see what comes next, and which company will take the project, because it has already become a tradition that who so ever becomes the Chief of The state must dictate who will be awarded which contract. People it's a very nasty eco-political games are being played in Palau. Look around you! See which projects are ongoing. Decide for yourself! So you see, when the US delagation came, they were not shown a picture of a needy country, but a potrait of a wealthy nation. Then the compact road. Bordallo took one good look at the land slides and exclaimed: " This was a poorly constructed road". But who do we point our fingers to? TR? JT? No...the section of our pact with US that talks about the 55 mile road. We looked at how much it is going to cost free of charge, rather than how long will it last. DAEWOO is gone, taxpayers are scammed, and now what? DAEWOO may have scammed that much (or more) from us, and the result of their work, will scam us more in the next 3 years or so. Our Administration should focus deeply on rebuilding the nation, rather than dipping their scoops in its vault. Imagine this, Most of us find time to fish even on hardcore weather conditions, to feed our family and a little to sell for extras to make ends meet. Living on $100,000 per annum does not change someones diet, as he still goes and buy the very same fish that we eat everyday. The only difference is: We pinch our dollars and work hard to earn a diddly portion of what they play around and earn, and yet, we continue doing it because we do not have a choice. Why don't they award us the same choice that they have now, so that we can all live comfortably. I fail everytime to understand what motivates their actions, and why can't they see us, the same way we entrusted our beliefs on the very reason why they are there. The people are not talking anymore Mr. President! They are weeping! Or are you living by what they preach everytime we get on a plane? "PUT YOUR MASKS ON BEFORE YOU RENDER ASSISTANCE TO THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU? Is that it? I hope someone can put in a good thought because all of these is more and more becoming senseless, arrogant and insatiable deeds devised to further rob an already emptied vault. Cheuas

SEN. Surangel Whipps Jr. earlier proposed a measure to require that the Republic of Palau observe the time zone of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Why are we required to do this? Why don't they come up with measures to limit power consumption on government entities and to penalize those who uses energy unneccessarily. Ngerulmud consumes 40 or 50% of the total power. That law should ammended while it's still pending to regulate and limit the power consumption for Ngerulmud and put in some harsh penalties as well, because it is the national government that's consistently breaking the rules and not paying their bills, and not so much the public. Here's what I do, Both I and my spouse work every day, and our kids go to school. When we all leave in the morning, we would then turn the main switch off, only to turn it back on at 6 pm. This method have helped us save over 50% of our power. And its also good for the appliance when you are away and there's a sudden surge or power outage. To come up with measures to change the time, will not only a waste of effort, but an adjustment that needs to be made internationally, which I believe will affect those who are eyeing Palau for possible business or vacation destination. We have lived all our lives on this time zone, isn't changing it now kind of odd? Power saving is a job for each Palauan if he/she wants to save money. We do not need a law to require us to save money, because when we carefully look at it, it still does not make any difference if one is not taking it upon his own initiative to try and save his own power. His complaint would still be the same, where he would only blame it on the power rate, and not himself... Good law SWJr, but I do not think it can solve our problem. Cheuas

HS, I cannot agree with you more on the issue. But see how the whole thing was cafully planned? I mean, laws have been mandated to give us the workers, certain requirements to hold better jobs while they enjoy a complete liberty of d grasping opportunities and doing what they want up there. When election time draws near, they become especially and pretentiously attentive to people's needs which unfortunately most of us fall victims to. And when someone lands a job in the government, they would have their people scutinize and have them out of the job in no time. What about the person's family? Did Mr. Uyehara ever thought about that? Why didn't he have him demoted instead? PPUC in not all about office work as there are linemen, mechanics, clerks, etc,etc.... I believe there is a big plan being concocted somehwere to elliminate all that seems to not follow who's rule and who's policy, but rather an obstruction in the middle of their path. Remember, most cases are cracked by the inexperienced one's because they are vulnerable to information and can easily be blended in a crowd. The experts are the one's that we run away from because they are good judge of characters and are especially good in implying issues and going against others mercilessly. This goes same with workers. The higher the degree, the longer one wants to sit behind the desk. Only few possess the ability to be blended with crowd, because they can see people eye to eye level, while maintaining their position, and these few are called: LEADERS. So yes, it's always good to ask for degrees, but in the case where someone have already got the job, it's also good to have an alternative plan so we do not appear to be gambling with lives. Cheuas

The government evaluation process should be honored as submitted by appropriate individuals designated the authory to assess and evaluate the performance of government employees. It is a uniform process done within all government agencies. Mr. Rengulbai's evaluation on Mr. Ngirkelau's performance is just and as observed. A position such as safety officer have a different job description and requirement. If according to Mr. Rengulbai's evaluation, Mr. Ngirkelau did not perform well within these or meet the requirements, then it is only right for Mr. Rengulbai to do what he did. If he lies about the evaluation, then he is incompetent and should be held liable for removal or demotion from his position. The first 3 months after one gets the job is considered a "delicate period". During which time, an employee must prove himself to be competent, trustworthy and a right person for the job. Mr.Ngiraingas should be reprimanded, as he stepped in without first consulting with Mr. Rengulbai. He used his authority to supersede the true and fair decision made by appropriate person, simply to try and retain an employee who is not fit for the job. An employee who is a waste of government resources. We have seen good people go in and get out simply because they fail to meet the requirements at the end of their trial periods. Does not make Mr. Ngirkelau a special person, as government is always trying to be fair. I would have given Mr. Ngirkelau the same perfomance evaluation if I saw and observed what Mr. Rengulbai did. The best thing now is for Mr. Ngiraingas to step down and relax and let the system work. Mr. Ngirkelau should bring his issue to the board, but he must have good explanation as to why his perfomance evaluation was rated "unsatisfactory". If he is able to convince the board that Mr. Rengulbai was wrong, then it is Mr. Rengulbai and the board. I have seen Mr. Ngrkelau on numerous occassions in a government vehicle at a very strange place which I believe is not connected to his job. Mr. Rengulbai have probably seen him more, to include his daily performance in the office. What do you all think? p.s-If he stays its still good, and if he goes, he will leave a vacancy... Cheuas

Jasper, I didn't want to tell you this, but since your too stupid to figure your own deal out, let me help you. A plan such as your NC and SC must be communicated to all affected parties (citizens of Peleliu, all Chiefs, state legislature, the national government, and public). The whole idea behind is it must have a sound purpose and be well formulated. As a focal person, LD or any one of his cronies (including you) must provide sufficient resources including funds, (Where's the money?) staff technical expertise (Who are the operators?) and time (When is the expected starting date?). You must also develop your implementation plan by setting your goals as to what you are trying to achieve (How are you going to include local workforce? Where is Peleliu after 20 years?) and, keeping record of all of your progresses (Keeping tabs with your stake holders). See if you can think differently now. This is what the people of Peleliu expects. You do not just go and tell them to take a sip off your glass and expect them to do. You have to tell them, why and what are they about to take. If this is too hard for you, then I suggest you close your head, and just be yourself. Or else, we are going to start conversing in Palauan, leaving you in the limbo... Cheuas...

Jasper the Blabber Mouth, NC and SC are Dreams so quit saying they are true. At the end of the day, you're going to start shitting bricks with your lies. You are an extremist and you still have not figured out how to appropriately get people to believe you and your dream cities. I'll tell you what, if you do not change the way you talk, we're all going to start speaking Palauan here, and you do not want that to happen becuase you do not speak Palauan. You said: "If you think 5 million will built you an international level Port sufficient to handle "Free Trade Zone Business!?!?!?!? Puhlease pull the other furry rabbit from your ass now ok?" And that's just what I'm saying Jasper. A point that you missed of a situation that I and my FELLOW PALAUANS are tires of already, a 10 for them and none for us sort of thing. And Harley was on a $250,000.00+ (Taxpayers)contract. And as far as I'm concerned, there is no bigger picture to look at in a dream. When you sleep its there, when you wake up "POOF" its gone. SC and NC are pyramid schemes and you know it because they way you talk, you are a part of it. You make me believe that you are LD himself as you sound like you're in love with yourself.... So before anyone else figure you out, you had better stop spreading lies or your nose will grow even longer and you're going to start shitting bricks...And if you continue being like that, we're going to start conversing in Palauan...

Yeah, WOW!!! I wonder who's selling these stuffs. It's definitely a Palauan, or somebody who did printing business here and now back in the states. Anyway, I hope there is a law that strictly requires government permission before anyone could duplicate the flag. Knick Knocks, shirts and caps maybe allowed but I'm not sure about the flags. I'm sure Santy have a saying on this issue. Take care do have a nice weekend.... Cheuas

Like I said, Palau is weak. Copyright law is lesser than working. And now, our pride is being sold, our citizenship was for sale, our lands are soon to be sold, and so are many other things. What next? I wouldn't be surprised if I somehow come across a notice that says: " PALAUANS FOR SALE" 50-70 YRS OLD-$2.50, 20 TO 40-$5.00, 1-10-GIVEAWAY, CONGRESSMEN-$0.25(And beware! They have very fast hands!). It'LL BE SO SAD.... Anyway, I tried connecting to the website, but a message keeps popping up telling me that the store is temporarily closed. I guess someone must have read your post.... By the way, the 19 People from USA congress are here. I hope our COFA will settle, and we finally have a direction. Thanks and have a nice weekend... Cheuas.. p.s.-Have you seen Belas lately? There's so many activities this weekend, he'll have a great weekend.

By JONATHAN KAMINSKY Associated Press Writer KOROR, Palau -- Some Chinese Muslims still detained at Guantanamo Bay have overcome reservations about being sent to the remote Pacific nation of Palau, and a final deal on their relocation was close, a lawyer for two of them said Wednesday. The Uighur detainees met with U.S. State Department officials on Monday and told the diplomats they are now willing to move to Palau, said lawyer George Clarke, who took part in the talks. Clarke told The Associated Press by telephone that "more than four and less than all" of the 13 Uighurs had agreed to go, overcoming previous fears that the tiny island nation would not be able to protect them from China, which considers them separatists. Once a deal is struck, it is expected to take weeks to organize the Uighurs' transfer. Palau in June offered to take the 13 detainees - a major step toward the Obama administration's goal of finding new homes for terrorist suspects and other prisoners captured during the Afghan war who have been cleared of wrongdoing but cannot go home for fear of ill-treatment. But the island state's President Johnson Toribiong told the AP in June that some of the men were hesitant because of concerns about China, which has demanded they be sent home for trial. U.S. officials have said the men could be executed in China and have refused to send them there. The 13 Uighurs, Turkic Muslims from far western China, have been held by the United States since their capture in Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2001. The Pentagon determined last year that they were not "enemy combatants," but they have been in legal limbo ever since. The U.S. has described a lack of resettlement options for dozens of such inmates who can't be returned to their homelands as an obstacle to emptying the Guantanamo prison. Mark Bezner, the top American official in Palau, confirmed the State Department was putting together a document spelling out the terms of the Uighurs' stay in Palau. "I expect to have it soon," he said. "We'll be discussing it with the Palauans and then it can be relayed to the Uighurs' attorneys." Once the men have signed it, Congress will be notified of the pending transfer. If no congressional objections are raised, the men will be cleared for their move after 15 days, Clarke said. A senior U.S. official told The Associated Press that a deal on sending the Uighur detainees to Palau was "close but not yet done." The deal could come soon if there are no last-minute hitches, the official said on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made. Ngiraibelas Tmetuchl, special assistant to Toribiong, said Palau's government so far had not been notified of the developments. "That's news to me," he said. "We will be expecting a note from the U.S." Clarke said his clients, Dawut Abdurehim and Anwar Assan, had been holding out hope that another country with an established Uighur population would be willing to take them in. "That's been a sticking point," Clarke said. "It's gotten to the point where they've realized that other countries are not (a) reliable" option. While there are no Uighurs in Palau, there is a Muslim population of more than 400 - most of them Bangladeshi workers - and two mosques. Clarke said a key issue to the detainees is whether they will be allowed to travel after being settled in Palau. His clients hope to one day make the Hajj, or holy pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Palauan citizenship is strictly hereditary, so the Uighurs will not be eligible for Palauan passports. Hey Y'all let's get it on.... Cheuas

HS, Because of the direction of our nation now, have opened windows to opportunists like Mr. Cauguiran. These guys have seen a lot, have done a lot, and I'm sure that negotiating even with Palau's higher ups is not going to be hard for them. We are gullible and greedy, and because of this, we fail at so many times to see th real picture behind a lot of things that we do. You see when a company offers $40m, a bigger country would think, now what's the catch? But our leadeship think, How much can they get out of the $40m. Most probably when the money is received, most of it goes to them, while we end up having $5m structure or a Port for this matter. So yes, we are more and more becoming a banana republic. Mr. Harley is just another Y2K that had his scoop dipped in and left. No one has ever been put in jail, and the public is still running around like headless chickens. Another examples are NC and SC projects. The endorsers are still coming out even to some private individuals and telling them of a fairy tale or a tall tale, and expecting them to believe them. To me, NC and SC are just another ones of the pyramid schemes, that is radically and desperately being pushed here. I would recommed our Law makers to come up with law to prohibit this sort of activities. They stir minds up, and could posibly drain everyone's purses and wallets. If they turn out bogus, where then do we get our money back. Taunton is still at large, and so does Mr. Harley. We do not have guts to bring them back, why? Because we feel sorry for them and think of them as human beings. When they concocted their doings, they thought of us as little crickets and maggots, who crave only for garbages. I hope we will be smart this time. Cheuas
