there must be another way of handling the comelec registration process. alam naman natin na may last-minute mentality ang pinoy. comelec should have expected, and prepared for, the swarm instead of saying, kayo kasi… lalo na’t merong concessions made to the rich and famous, like satellite ek-eks in kris aquino‘s case, and good old palakasan as in manuel buencamino‘s. these, while masses of ordinary pinoys without connections had to line up for hours to register, if they were able to at all. paano ka naman matutuwa sa ganyang palakad.
i can’t believe people are raving about the noynoy video hindi ka nag-iisa. what’s so powerful about that torch-lit parade led by noynoy that went nowhere. i’m like, they love this? c’mon people, taas-taasan naman ang standards natin. we already know na hindi siya nag-iisa. tell us something new, let’s hear him talking platform. hindi porke anak siya nina Ninoy at Cory ay okay na, siguradong he won’t lie, cheat, or steal. that’s just too low a bar for a presidential candidate. i need to hear how he’s going to address the problems of poverty, land reform, environment, education, foreign debt, chacha, atbp. i will not take him, or anyone, on sheer faith. i leave that to the pink sisters.
ayon kay senador nene pimentel tuloy tuloy ang pag-benta ng gma administration ng government assets, tipong ‘midnight sale,’ mostly to raise money pampuno sa napakalaking budget ng 2009 or puwede ring pangkampanya sa 2010. whatever, hindi lang pala ang food terminal inc. sa taguig at ang government shares in san miguel corp. at pnoc energy exploration corp. ang ibinebenta. pati pala the sprawling properties ng national center for mental health at ng welfareville sa mandaluyong, gayon din ng national penitentiary sa muntinlupa city at ng home for the aged sa quezon city, “in complete disregard of their importance in providing vital social government services.” ano ba yan. ubos ubos biyaya. and then what. pag naubos, nakatunganga. there must be a smarter way of handling our resources. let’s demand that presidentiables be honest, yes, but also creative and wise.
