What is going on with our congress. Our officials have to work together to resolve issues and problems instead of creating them. It has proven that our officials are taking sides instead of uniting together. They spend more of their times picking and pointing fingers on each other beside facing the fact and purpose that THE CITIZENS voted them for.

What is wrong with Senator Koshiba? Is it his loud mouth that speaks the truth on how his feels or his looks that irritate other senators?

Hello-wake up senators. Citizens are crying for help but you guys are either asleep or fighting over candy bars. We didn't vote you there to fight over a throne in the congress. We elected you there to find benefits for our the citizens as well as the Republic.

Something is very distrubing in Palau.

Koshiba, Dean of the Senate, who at the eve of his departure from public life, and who should know the Constititution whom he helped write, and should also know the by-laws of Senate succession like it was his second wife, makes this erroneous action by installing himself as the Senate President?

Once again, his action proves my point that he and his group are attempting to secure their personal interests before leaving office.

Koshiba and Co remains committed to the 99 Year Lease, Shimao Development, 10 Visa Waiver, Gambling, among other things.

My point? Make sure we elect a senator that is going to join the Minority and save Palau from these crooks.

Subject: Ant vs. Grasshopper


The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays
the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!



The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays
the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and
demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while
others are cold and starving.

CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering
grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table
filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper
is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody
cries when they sing, "It's Not Easy Being Green."

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where
the news stations film the group singing, "We shall overcome." Jesse then
has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Nancy Pelosi & John Kerry exclaim in an interview with Larry King that
the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for
an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act
retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green
bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is
confiscated by the government.

Hillary gets her former employer, the Rose Law Firm, to represent
the grasshopper in a
defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a jury
comprised of single-parent
welfare recipients.

The ant loses the case.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of
the ant's food while the government house he is in, which just happens to
be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house,
now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once
peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote.

New Version,
It appears that your story has no morals.

Here's a differrent inerpretation of your story Edeng...
All those people you mentioned above as know nothing bleeding hearts..at the very least were fighting to save a life..not sending them to die uselessly based on some
Mass Destruction bullsh$t.
It was more like Mass Distraction that has now cost the lives of thousands of people.
The moral of your story should be..Dón't live like both the ant and the grasshopper...Live Like Your Human...Be a Human Being with Morals and a Concience...Be a Fellow Human Being.

There are law abiding people in Palau and seems
that our constitution is
being read and understood.
I for one am glad that this fiasco with the President of the senate is over.
Now hopefully they can get to work..

I hope..


I think what edeng is trying to say is that...

You wont go far with your bullshit. If you are not being truthfull to yourself and the people your with!

There so many ways to kill a pig, but the end result is just plain shit...and that is after digestion.

Kid a okiu a betok el ngurd el ngii a di rokui e lobech ra eslel Olbiil. A lsekum kemla mo meleakl ra rengedem e kau a dikea mta er kemam.

Well, it is not fair that the ant works so hard while the grasshopper takes all the credits. Sounds like some people I know. I think grassy needs reality check. If fact, why should he, his funeral will be taken care of, and all the debts payed off by his beloved ones. Adang mekerang..

Have a nice week-end to all you bloggers...

Mosi and Star,

From the court, Sen. Koshiba , Seid file for an appeal and the same time Dean introduced resolution to place Sen. Surangel as new Senate President.

Question 1: Who paid for their legal attorney fot this constitutional case??

Question 2: Now, who paid legal expenses for an appeal???

Answer 1&2: They must pay for their own legal counsel expenses; from Guam, etc. not public funds by senate.

They are highly paid but stil using senate public funds, I for one, they must repay back for all senate public funds authorized Dean. While he was illegal president of the senate.

They knew what is right but they act above the constitution, laws and the people of Palau.

They got paid high and think above all.

Sen. Diaz ,, who naively out of order in presiding the senate session. He who dum/stupidious never been in the OEK will act like him. He was not prepared to act on presiding, we heard Dean & Floorleader coaching him in the order of business. We saw him calling Hon. Dengokl to replace him as president. Sen. Dengokl refused to take president seat because knows that Diaz was out of order. But Diaz claimed that Sen. Dengokl was afraid to take the seat. See how naive Diaz about the rules of procedures of the senate.

Diaz think that we all (Palauans)are stupid and he is Mr. Knows everthing . He claimed that he learned and studied at US Army school of harvard.

He had been in the senate for 2 years and 4 months. He does not know his home Ngermid needs. He never make any attempt to make a single appropriation the meet the needs of his people in Ngermid and Koror.

He claimed he went on meeting to Honolulu and he spoke to the crowd. While he talking he saw his son with his fiancee. After his short unworthy speech he immediately walk away without meeting his son Kelandy. It is pure child abused and his is a man without love to hs own son.

He must be cray-z and required behavioral and medical attention. Because his our leader.


To me, ladies and gentlemen, the moral of story is:

Anybody or a group of people can make you look bad. He or she or they can say all kinds of negative things about you with the intent to ruin you. But as long as you stay firm in what you believe in, continuing doing what you have been doing with a “good conscience,” you will “win” at the end.

Now you did not “win over someone or group of people” who spread these lies about you let’s say, Instead you won at the end because you mastered your “mind.” In other words you listened to the “right thoughts” and those thoughts maintained your “actions” by continuing to stay in the right path.

Even if you are ruined, your conscience is right, because you know you did the right thing. Happiness comes to those palauans who seek to do what is right because only you know “how you feel,” that is your right, that is your power to “joy” and “peace.” Anyone who is outside of your body, mind and soul will never know this secret. Only you know and that is why you walk with a smile on your face.

Take care my brothas and sistas.


Thank you for your insight, but during the recall on him there were a lot of negative comments on him until the time people went to the poll and decided to retain him.

I believe the more we talk about someones personal life, it will only make him stronger. Keep the issues in what they decided in their high and mighty chair about what they did that affected the tax payers and the misuse of law to their advantage. I think that is the key to open peoples eyes and in turn will do the right thing.


Ngemeral tegoi e Ngeraardian. The ant may have lost the case, but he walked out of there with a smile in his face. I bet, he went on working hard as ever to fulfill his dreams.

I know of someone who set this example by overcoming any obstacles in order to attain what it is that He came here for.

And yes, the " peace and the joy" when we continue doing what is right, in spite of what we maybe face daily.

Are you a psychologist or a psychiatrist by any chance? They charged a lot of money for these advises. It must be these"demok" that you have been earing. Take care my friend...

I think Diaz should remain the talk show host; he does better with his mouth on his radio program than his representing us in the OEK SEnate. I think he does good for Palau in that popular position and should be encouraged to stay there, where he is really needed by the public.

Any legal expenses incurred from Palau's judicial review of the senate president election result should come from the senators' pockets, who did not know election procedures and who lost the constitutional case. Also, they should pay the plaintiff's attorney by virtue of loosing the court case.

hey imelk...that's a big "HOPE" you got there and it's going to need a lot of prayers....

good luck!!!!!!!!
