“I am declaring a day of mourning for the victims of the mass murder in Mindanao,” so said Gloria Arroyo.
“I am outraged as everyone is at this crime. It is a travesty of our pledge to uphold the basic humanity of every Filipino,” so said Gloria Arroyo.
What was it? A pathetic response on on the most gruesome event and barbaric acts.
Since the likes of you assumed power, there is no despicable person or group of persons so long as these guys deliver what you want, what you need, and what you wish to stay in power. Such is your world, transactional and based on patronage. Such is the culture you nurture, a culture of impunity.
Ask the mothers, the fathers, the kids and the families of those human rights victims under your administration. They would tell you that they have been mourning ever since their sons, daughters and parents disappeared or killed. They will mourn until that day their lives on this earth shall come to an end too.
Ask the million impoverished Filipinos who day by day have to live a life lesser that a rat while you, your cohorts and the likes of you live a life of plenty. They may not care much about Joc-joc Bolante and the likes of him that you keep and protect but for sure, they know, they are half dead.
“Commitment [to] human rights and human dignity shall prevail in the Philippines,” so said Gloria Arroyo. TALAGA PO? Really? I heard that many times before. Words, words, words; they are all words and as always, they are plenty, cheap and meaningless.
Day of mourning today? Millions of Pinoys have been mourning everyday Madam President ever since the likes of you sit there, do shit and talk non-sense.
