Jun Ducat, Cayetano, Coseteng and Ermita

“I am so sorry I took these children in a violent reaction to call the attention of the Filipino people to open their minds to the political reality.
There is so much corruption in the country. We are number one in Asia in corruption.

I am calling on all the Filipino people to stop the rotten political system. Do not rely on politicians for your future. No one can help you but yourselves.” Jun Ducat said.

Jun Ducat is a former contractor who founded the Musmos Day Care Center about four years ago on Manila’s Tondo slum area. The children hostages are his student in his day care center.

Bad taste and bad mouths:

While the hostage crisis is ongoing, two of our senatorial candidates, Allan Peter Cayetano and Dominique Coseteng, went on national television blaming the administration and Gloria Arroyo for this hostage-taking problem. Typical of the dreaded and rotten politicians all over the Philippines, these two can not help themselves but salivate at the opportunity and media mileage that this unfortunate incident would give them.

How sweet to hear them talk about the reasons why the situation happened? But hell no! We Pinoys already know what the problem is. We know that they are part of the problem why Jun Ducat did this and we know their selfish motives.

True to the mold of the opportunist and grandstanding trapos (traditional politicians), these so-called senatorial candidates never hesitated to exploit the situation not for the people’s welfare but for themselves; that is to get (undue) advantage at all cost to further their selfish personal agendas.

Are these the kind of people we will elect as senators?

My father once told me that the highest form of stupidity that a person may have is when that person talks non-sense and blames other while his house is burning. An intelligent person shuts his mouth, do something to help in putting out the fire if he can and if he can not, keeps himself away from fire so he will not be burned.

If you are thinking that these two deserve your important vote, please spare yourselves of the effort. Do not think once or twice or million times. This early, it is already clear that when elected, Cayetano and Coseteng will hold you hostage not for hours as Jun Ducat did to his students but for a long period of time.

I am NOT through yet!

To continue with my jaded view of what happened on the sides, let me add another unpalatable statement from one of our so-called government officials. Mr. Ermita said, “of course this will have a bad effect on our image in the international communities.” WTF, we have a situation and he is worried about our reputation abroad! What is that reputation he is so worried about anyway?

Another day in the Filipinos’ colorful life with a hostage taker and the clowns as seen by a cynical blogger.

    I really really really have doubts about Cayetano. He’s was one of the people in my “can do” senatoriables, but…

    Bills = 0
    Buckets of saliva = 999999+++…

    If there’s one thing I like about him and his family, it’s their kindness. Pero politically speaking, nakakarindi talaga madalas. Parang lahat ng nangyayari, Mike Arroyo Mike Arroyo Mike Arroyo. Feeling ko hindi nila ina-acknowledge na sila rin may parte sa kaguluhan ngayon. Actually may sinusulat akong tipong “don’t vote for these people” at lahat ng senatoriables asa listahan kasama mga kalokohan nila.

    As for the hostage-taking incident especially yung kay Ermita, here’s my take on it.

    why can’t they just be part of the solution than being part of the problem.

    Abaw — inunahan ako ni Verna sa comment ko. That was what came to mind .. being part of the s instead of the p.

    I guess when you’re away, you really bleed for your country. I know that feeling. Pero ngayon, numbness na lang.

    Don’t worry, if ever I will vote at all, no danger that I will vote for those three.

    Shari : I think he learned the trick from Maceda. Come to think of it, he is similar to Gloria, just got to blame somebody else attitude. Poor boy (not materially ha).
