Choose the best asshole that serves your purpose

The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the law.” ~ Cornelius Tacitus

Forget about the quote above. This post is supposedly about that but then I lost the idea, thus I changed the content. The whole post just doesn’t connect. However, the quote itself is good, right?

Shame on you!

The title of this post was actually “Vote wisely” but then I thought it was kind of redundant, perhaps useless, because I firmly believe that nobody even cares what “voting wisely” means for the simple reason that we Pinoys, the majority of the citizens of this beloved country named Philippines, have been electing assholes in government for the longest time. We Pinoys simply and amazingly do not learn. For the majority of us Pinoys, “Voting wisely” is just a term that equates to “Vote for my Idol,” “Vote for the Popular,” “Vote for the Good Political Ads” and whatever, but never a vote for the right guy for the right reason.

I might be wrong in saying that most Pinoys did not vote for the right guy for the right reason, neither do I have the right answer as to why nor do I know the right formula as to how Pinoys must vote. Do you?

Buhay OFW

Noong nakaraang dalawang linggo, dalawang beses din akong nagkasakit dahil marahil sa aking edad na pabata nang pabata (totoo ito; puwede kong patunayan). Alam ninyo yun, kapag ang klima ay biglang-bigla na lang nagpapalit, sukat na lang lumalamig (10 – 15 degrees Centigrade) at pagkatapos ay bigla namang umiinit (30 – 40 degrees Centigrade), hindi na nakakapag-adjust agad ang bumabatang katawan.

In short, nawiwindang and mga defenses, nabubulabog ang mga organs at organisms na nasa loob ng katawan; kaya ang bagsak: sakit at ineksyon sa puwet.

Salamat na lang at may mga networking sites ngayon at nalaman ng buong mundo ang aking kalagayan sapagkat naisulat ko ito sa aking Plurk, Twitter at Facebook accounts. Nakakatuwa naman, marami sa aking mga naging kaibigan ang nagparating ng mga mensahe na “be well, get well, don’t dwell on your sickness” at kung ano-ano pang pang-konsuelo na may taglay na salitang “well.”

Bilang OFW, ang mga mensaheng ganito na may “well” ay nakakatulong para gumaling, lumakas agad, at makapag Internet ulit.

At dahil dyan, may nag-text: “Ingatan mo ang iyong sarili; uminom ng maraming tubig, huwag lason o alak ha? Bawal magkasakit kasi you are alone honey.” At di pa papaawat,meron pa: “Dito napakainit rin dahil may el nino. Pebrero pa lang ngayon, papaano na kaya pag talagang summer na o pag Holy Week na?”  Read More..
