it’s happening   :(   watch anc and weep.

Resolution 1109 calls for the members of Congress “to convene for the purpose of considering proposals to amend or revise the Constitution, upon a vote of three-fourths of all the members of Congress.”

Accordingto Nograles, HR 1109 would be taken up … because it only needed the vote by a majority …

He said approving HR 1109 was “easy to get as long as the majority are present.”

He said the debates expected about 1109 are “mostly saliva debates.”

“I advise you to stay on until 11 o’clock because it looks like a long night and it’s going to be 1109 all the way,” he told reporters.

ellen tordesillas warned us about gma’s palaka congress.   kokak.

Hardly had the croaking of the the congressmen who were at the Manila Hotel for the launching of what pundits call Palaka (Partido Lakas at Kampi) died down last Thursday when they were summoned by Gloria Arroyo to a room where she gave her marching orders: pass the resolution amending the Constitution.

Arroyo, the source said, offered the congressmen a hefty incentive: over and above their pork barrel, they will be given P20 million each.

The “undue haste” is because Operation Gloria Forever is already behind schedule. In the original timetable, a Cha-Cha resolution should have passed Congress February or March 2009. Proponents expected the judicial question to be settled, in their favor by June. That means, Senate can be ignored.

The writing of the new Constitution should be no sweat. Malacañang has a ready draft of the new Charter and all that is needed is three-fourths vote of the House of Representatives. The approval by the Supreme Court of 32 more sectoral representatives caused some adjustment in Malacañang’s payola budget. But what’s P5 billion for the 200 plus votes (at P20 million each) to buy Arroyo’s protection after 2010?

Once the Con-Ass has produced a new Constitution, the referendum could be held in September. The May 2010 elections would be for members of the parliament (if in the new Constitution the system of government would be parliamentary) or for president without the 6-year term limit. Real smart, isn’t she?

    didn’t GMA and her congressmen LOVE the hayden-katrina sex scandal therefore? media was so focused on the sex videos, this got past them!
    o hindi nila binasa si tordesillas? or hindi nila binabasa ang Malaya? too full of themselves to think that the news cannot happen elsewhere but in their own media corporations? nakakahiya!

    Narinig ko nga sa taxi na nasakyan ko kanina. Galit na galit ang drayber. Talagang hinahamon tayo na mag-ingay.

    Nakakainsulto na inaakala nilang makakalusot sila sa ganito kalaking kalokohan.

    Will the Senate allow this “hocus pocus” of ConAss that ignores the Senate as a separate and equal House of Congress?

    Will the Arroyo-dominated Supreme Court rule in favor of this controversial proposal?

    Will there be a Presidentiable who will be brave enough to say NO?

    Will 88 million Filipinos be willing partners to this latest chicanery of “The Croaks And Liars”?

    Will YOU allow her to pull another fast one???
