Bukas, eleksyon na.

Mga kabayan ito ang tamang panahon para pabagsakIn ang mga KANDI-DATUNG mapagsamantala sa kahirapan ng taong-bayan, bumibili ng DANGAL at ginagawang mga HUDAS ang mga Filipino.

Kung naging HUDAS ka man,

BUKAS ang panahon para MABAWI MO ang yong DIGNIDAD na niyurakan ng mga KANDI-DATUNG nanamantal sa yong kahinaan o kahirapan.

Bukas, hindi ka na si Hudas.

BUKAS, ikaw ang BOSS!

Bukas, ikaw ay isang tunay na Pinoy!

Still Crazy After All These Years!!!

Dear 40s,

Thank you!

Just wanted you to know that I appreciate everything. I have enjoyed every moment with you just like the 30s, 20s and the 10s. I will miss all the great times but that’s life. Time passes by, it goes on,  not stopping,  not waiting for anyone. It moves ahead whether someone wants it or not.

But no worry.  Not a thing could or would stop me from being ME.  I promise you, I will stay the same.

Coz I am!

Still crazy after all these years.

Happy me.

One truth that remains…

In “The Sign of the Four”, Sherlock Holmes says, “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

Did that  really happen when the supreme court justices rendered their decision (7 – 4 vote)  that acquitted the accused on the Vizconde Massacre?

Perhaps yes and perhaps not.

The truth, however improbable, is that these aren’t emotional and dumb  people deciding on cases submitted to them. Because if they were, they could have used their emotions — wait and let Christmas and New Year pass  then issue their decision on January 18, 2011, as they had originally set. But wtf!, they changed their minds.

Perhaps they thought Christmas Parties will blow away whatever emotional things attached to it including the pressure from the earlier killing of Pnoy’s Truth Commision. The timing seemed right and it is easier to bet that in just few days, people would forget eventually  especially when (an overload of) fresh news of putol na kamay, wasak na mukha, sunog na bahay, deaths, rape, murder, and etc. occupy the headlines and TV newscasts.

Which, if I am correct, ang tawag dito ay two birds in one shot. I told you, these aren’t dumb people. (Tayo lang yata ang dumb…. hehehe)

So what does that leave on the platito? Definitely not mani. Kidding aside, I don’t know yet, but whatever it is seems to be improbable. Unfortunately, Mr. Lauro Visconde finds himself back again to where he was 20 years ago.

And as it was then and as it is now, the one truth that remains: his wife and kids were massacred twice (figuratively as they say) because our so-called justice system sucks.

Note: Please do not ask me what this post is all about. Just do what Sherlock Holmes says then you will know. lol

Words Written By PNoy’s Legal Team and Supreme Court Justices

I’ve been away from blogging for quite some time and as you can see, I hardly update this blog. Not that I have nothing to blog about. Frankly, I got lots of them; I just do not want to post them here.

You know why?

Because Sol Saks said, “You have to be brave to take out that white sheet of paper and put on it words that could be evidence of your stupidity.”

But today, I just felt that I wanted to blog. I am brave!  And that surprised me a lot.

Suddenly, I have something quick to say. Suddenly I am letting myself write an evidence of stupidity in the Internet – at least not on paper. LOL

Perhaps, reading and watching the news over the net got me asking. It got me (kahit sandali)  thinking.  And you know what? Paminsan-minsan, masarap pala mag-isip.  Really, it feels good and wonderful. lol

The news was out there, The Truth Commission (Executive Order Number 1) is dead. The Supreme Court has decided: It is Unconstitutional.

With its demise, the 20 or so corruption cases will be buried as well in the burial site called “We Wonder What Is The Truth?” without using a Backhoe or armed goons but justices votes.

With that decision, these cases would become part of the ever-increasing Philippines Wonders as The Trapos Perfect Shit On Pinoy Faces on a very clear day.

From Inquirer:  In October, members of the Truth Commission held a press conference to announce a shortlist of 20 corruption and cheating scandals being considered for investigation.

These include:

The $329-million national broadband network deal— the “Philippine National Broadband Network controversy” (also referred to as the NBN-ZTE deal) involved allegations of corruption in the awarding of a US$329 million construction contract to the Chinese telecommunications firm ZTE for the government’s proposed National Broadband Network (NBN) project.

The contract with ZTE was signed on April 20, 2007 in Hainan, China. After news about alleged irregularities came out, former President Arroyo canceled the NBN project in October 2007. On July 14, 2008, the Supreme Court dismissed three petitions questioning the constitutionality of the national broadband deal, saying the petitions became moot when the NBN project was canceled.

The P728-million fertilizer fund scam — this political controversy involves accusations that former Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn “Jocjoc” Bolante diverted P728 million in fertilizer funds to the 2004 election campaign of Arroyo.

The C-5 road controversy — Senator Manuel Villar, a real state developer and Forbes Magazine’s ninth richest Filipino in 2009 with a net worth of $530 million, was accused of using his power to realign the C-5 road project for the benefit of his companies. Villar earlier denied his involvement in any wrongdoing connected to the C-5 road project.

“Hello Garci” election scandal — in this controversy, a woman perceived to be Arroyo and a man said to be former Elections commissioner Virgilio Garcillano, discussed the alleged padding of 2004 election returns in favor of Arroyo. Their wiretapped conversations were later made public. The recordings of these conversations have been dubbed the “Hello Garci” tapes.

Ah, things really made me wonder and ask. I even had the courage to write them here.

What now? Bakit kaya laging talo ang Legal Team ni Pnoy? Sino kaya ang may problema, Si Pnoy ba, ang mga abugado nya o ang supreme court?

At bakit nga ba kailangan ng Truth Commision? If the government of Pnoy, his classmates, colleagues and friends has a case, why don’t they just file it in court – unless of course, wala naman talaga case at all.

Pero sa totoo lang alam naman natin na may kabulastugan, pero saan at kanino mo I pa-file?

Sa Obbudsman! That’s not kind of you. Why put that big burden on them. They have so much in their hands now. Kahit small fish nga, wala na silang nahuhuli these days. LOL

Hello Garci! Are you there?

Masarap nga kaya ang burjer ni Ben?

Ano nga kaya, P200 or P200 million?

Damn! I wonder when are we going to add another name in the list of the most corrupt leaders of the world. Remember, we got two at number 2 and number 10 spots.

Anyhow,

In as much as we desire to really  know the truth,  I believe that it  is certain that there is a chance that we won’t know.  The only thing that is clear is that at this very moment,  we know for sure that  Pnoy’s legal team and the Supreme Court justices wrote on paper.  And me, I am glad, I chose the net.

There is one thing IRONIC about their acts though: those things they wrote on paper that could be an evidence of stupidity were paid for by Pinoys.

Remember Me Not

Bukas, 20 ng Hunyo 2010 ay Father’s Day, buong mundo ay magdiriwang para parangalan ang ang mga kabataan noon at mga mga Ama ngayon na pinagmumulan ng ating mga kabataan ngayon na pag-asa ng ating bayan. At ganon din, ang mga anak nila, pag dating ng araw ay magiging ama rin.

Ngayon po, 19 ng Hunyo 2010.

Marahil, marami o merong iilan sa atin ngayon, ay nakalimutan na ang araw na ito. Ito po ay araw ng aking kapanganakan. Hindi po naman ako nagdaramdam kung sakaling may mga nakalimot at di na alam ang araw na ito. Naiintindihan ko po ang kanilang mga sitwasyon. Lalo na sa ngayon, lubhang napakihirap na ng buhay at marami sa ating mga kababayan ang naghihikahos, walang makain, walang hanapbuhay, walang tirahang maituturing na tunay na bahay, dumarami ang walang pinag aralan at higit sa lahat, katulad din noon, di nag iba ang kalakaran ng buhay. Marami pa rin ang mga api at pinagsasamantalahan ng mga naghaharing uri. Nag-iba nga lang ang kulay, anyo at lahi. Hindi na mga banyagang Kastila kundi kauring lahi na dahil sa kasakiman ay nagagawang alipustain ang ating Inang bayan at pagsamantahan ang mga mahihina nating mga kababayan.

Maraming taon na ang lumipas. Maraming bagay na ang nagbago. Maraming kaisipan sa mundo ang ating sinubukan, ginaya at ginawa, pero ganon pa rin ang ating katayuan. Di pa rin nakakaahon ang karamihan sa ating mga kababayan at ang ating inang bayan ay nagdarahop pa rin. Mas masahol pa sa lugmok, nakabaon na sa umalingasaw na putikan.

Philippines: You saw it coming and yet you did Nothing!

Say this to all Pinoys from Gloria, the woman who never give up.

Hearing that some Pinoys are marching towards Manila for a rally against her SONA on Monday (July 27,2009), Gloria is ready to rush in where some of her Tuta fear might turn to something out of control and out of the expected results from the scenarios that they have been looking at for the past months or years.

“What do these people want?” Gloria asked on Friday. “They can have everything, the Palace, my position as president. It has been stinky shit ever since I had to act and say sorry for something vague right after they exposed my call with that guy named Garci in 2004.”

“Do they think I had a good ride all the way? Damn, I have to put up with all the insults and the distrusts for almost nine years now. I am human too. I need to be loved and accepted just like anybody else. Thanks heaven or hell, there are a handful who are willing to be around for a piece of crumbs, for power, fame and whatever personal interests you can think of.”

“So, can you blame me totally for what happened to this country during my administration? No way people! Blame those people who are willing to sell their souls! Blame those groups and businesses and businessmen (warlords, gambling lords, drug lords) who want to gain control and make money.”

“Blame those Senators, Congressmen, those highly educated but stupid technocrats, police and military men. They all loved to cheer me up and they willingly do whatever I told them to do for small amount of money, power and fame. They are all great great grandchildren of Judas, the one who sold Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. And you know what, I admire them.  They are highly evolved, emotionally and psychologically. They are too thick and they do not want to hang themselves after receiving the money for the job well done. That is betraying you.”

“True to their nature, when they do not get that favor they want, they turned their backs on me and suddenly they act like saints and they call themselves Opposition.  Damn it!  this place is really full of them. It really is hot in here. And, that was the reason why I had to travel often, gets nyo?”

“But I tell you what. For the first time, I will be honest and I will not lie. Do you know who I put my blame on for what happened to this country, to my family and to me?”

“I say,  it is all your fault Pinoys! I will say it again, YOU! Filipinos, BLAME yourselves! Not Me!”

“And why it should be you and should not be me?

“Because you allowed these Judases, you allowed me and you let us do everything. Did I hear violent reactions from you for all the worst things I did? Never! All I heard was just a yawn and nothing else. Who were there with you yawning? The guys who helped me then but later turned their backs on me when they could not get want they wanted.”

You saw it coming and yet  you did nothing! That’s how it was and how it is going to be even after me.”

SO, please, do not blame me.  BLAME YOURSELVES. IT IS NOT MY FAULT. IT IS NOT MY LOSS, IT IS ALL YOURS.”

“Do you think I did it alone? Damn, you were all wrong!  We did it!  And you damaged me at the end!”

“Philippines, welcome to the gates of hell. you ain’t seen nothing yet. Promise.”

Gloria’s comments came to me yesterday at night.

In a dream.

And I was born at night.

But not yesterday and definitely not last night.
