Too Bad for Madoff, He Is Not A Filipino

Last Monday in New York, Bernard Madoff, the 71 year old breathing devil, the architect of the longest, the largest and most massive financial fraud in history was sentenced to 150 years in prison, the maximum term for his “extraordinarily evil” crimes.

Mr. Madoff, who by way of Ponzi scheme bilked investors worldwide out as much as $65 billion, said, “My error was much more serious. I made an error of judgment.” (Hello Garci, it brings back bad memories. I am Sorry for reminding you.)

Too bad for Mr. Madoff, he is not a Filipino financier doing business in the Philippines. If he was, he could have pleaded ‘Not Guilty’ and he could lie to the teeth.  His case would have lasted his lifetime, unresolved. He could live his lavish lifestyle without interruptions and he could even become a Congressman, a Senator or a government appointed official.

Too bad for Mr. Madoff, his sons are not Filipinos whose names are Romulo Neri and Joc joc Bolante. If they are (like Romulo Neri and Joc joc Bolante), even if they know or even if their father Madoff confessed to them doing a sham or scam,  they won’t report their father Madoff’s illegal activities to authorities, instead they would just kept quiet, all for the sake of the family. Moreover, if ever they would say something, it is only about how innocent their father is, how good  man he is or perhaps claim that he is  a saint giving fatherly and unconditional love to them and to other people.

Too bad for Mr. Madoff, Gloria is not his President. If Gloria is his, he could hope and expect  to receive an executive clemency sooner or later just like Erap the plunderer, Romeo Jalosjos the rapist, and those other murderer and criminal recipients of  Gloria’s kindness (to animals).

Too bad for us, Mr. Madoff did not include Jose Pidal and Jose Velarde in the people he scammed. If he did, the real guys behind those aliases would have died of cardiac arrest or perhaps Nababaliw or Baliw na at gusto ng mag-suicide. (If only these two were  included, Mr. Madoff’s scam could have exposed them and provided paper trail  for all Pinoys to see.)

Too bad, we are Filipinos. If we are citizens of a country that has a correct sense of what is right and what is wrong and where justice system works for all, we could have exacted a swift justice from the powerful and or groups of abusive and corrupt people who have committed grievous crimes against us.

Too bad, we are Filipinos. Many if not most of  our government officials, politicians, private individuals and businessmen have defrauded and is still bilking us big time, and yet, all of them are still free, having a good life, ruling us and keeping us in perpetual misery.

Too Bad for Madoff, he is not a Filipino. To bad for  most of us Pinoys, we all have to live everyday  and perhaps die in the hands of Filipinos who are like or worst than Madoff.

    His wife said, “I am embarrassed and ashamed. Like everyone else, I feel betrayed and confused. The man who committed this horrible fraud is not the man I have known for all these years.”

    Too bad for Madoff, he is not Filipino, otherwise, he would have received adulation from his harem of wives who publicly wallow on the luxury that he has provided from his grand fraudulent scheme.

    Too bad…too bad…You are very right, myepinoy.

    We Filipinos never learn–there is always that misplaced sense of values.

    Too bad for Madoff because he got 150 years because Erap was pardoned after 6 years and Marcos’ family and former cohorts are still running around like nothing happened 😡

    I read that news about Madoff in the papers and was taken aback by the “extraordinarily evil” description of his misdeeds. It took this post to make me realize na … oo nga, some of our kabababayan have been duping fellow kababayans dry and hungry and poor and getting away with it. What goes ha? Is there something extraordinarily wrong with the Filipino psyche? Ouch, sakit. O nasa sistema ba? Haay naku.

    That’s why every time I say “I am proud to be a Filipino” I am afraid that someone will ask me “what about Filipinos that you can be proud of?”.

    But then I find myself asking “Deym!! I forgot about martial law” “I forgot about Erap”. I am not different after all.

    I’m sure that there are still a lot of good things going for us Filipinos. There are plenty of Filipinos who are honest and hard-working and resilient and creative. I see them everyday in my work. Sa blogosphere lang, madaming admirable Filipinos. In any country naman, there is the good and the bad. Our time will come Myepinoy. Have faith. As for those government officials and politicians, etc…. they will have their time.

    Let’s not put ourselves down too much. With the bad comes the good.

    Sabi nga nila, let domestic squabbles end at the edge of the water.
