“the PERFECT time to criticize”

To everyone bitching about why we shouldn’t be criticizing the government and just help out instead:

1. This is the PERFECT time to criticize. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and fucking tired of the same goddamn story every time a typhoon comes our way five or six times a year: no funds in the budget because government officials wanted a Porsche, or I’m the president but it’s not my fault I’ll just pass the blame onto the cities for not being prepared because passing blame is the ONLY thing I’ve passed in my fucking term so far….

2. Constantly not speaking out about this in the past is the reason we’re all in this shithole. When you know something’s not right, the worst thing you can do is to shut up.

3. I can criticize AND help out at the same time, fuck you very much. If you’d rather not say anything because the current status quo is more important to you than accepting the need for things to change, then YOU’RE part of the problem.

    what the tuck is she talking about? Is there anyone telling her to shut the tuck up and not criticize the government? Is the government now into suppressing the right of the citizen to complain and criticize? I wonder.

      hi bert. on facebook anyway, people who are critical of government’s management (or mis-) of the crisis are being told to stop it, stop with the anger, stop with the wailing, it’s not a time to be critical of the aquino admin, it’s demoralizing donors, esp filipinos abroad…

        Ah, thank you, angela, for making me see the light.

        If it’s true that incessant criticizing of the Aquino administration was demoralizing domestic and international donors and affecting their desire to donate much needed relief goods for the hungry victims I think is not enough justification to shut up Ms. Chupeco if she’s enjoying it. Okay then, I understand.

    Ms. Chupeco,

    There is a difference between criticizing and bitching…Try exchanging “criticizing” and “bitching about” in the opening sentence so that it becomes consistent with your enumerated rants. Labyu.

    I could smell the Manila Standard stench a mile away… and when I clicked on the link, who’s the first one to reply to Ms Choopeco? The creative fiction writer…

    Sometimes aside from saving Filipinos from calamities, you also have to save them from people like Choopeco, Jojo R, Tatad, etc. LOL
