Comment on the other side of the room
Noong panahon ng campaign, agresibo ang dilaw sa salita laban sa corruption. Pero pag-upo ng PNoy Administration, mabilis na linamon eto ng corruption. Jueteng nandyan pa rin. Traffic ng Metro Manila hindi na ma-manage. Poverty walang sustainable solution, puro patch up ng dole out money at hindi well-targeted sa rural poor where majority of the poor lives.
Evaluating decision-making pattern is an instantaneous evaluation. When you see right now that the person tolerates corruption, you don't wait for another 12 months to check again if he changed.
Maraming pwedeng i-dahilan and excuses ang justification. Sabi nga nila, kung gusto eh may paraan, pero kung ayaw eh may dahilan.
Tested na na obedient ang PNP kay PNoy pag decisive lang siya. Pag sabi ni PNoy na wala nang wangwang, kinabukasan wala nang wangwang.
Pag-dating sa Jueteng, tolerant si PNoy. Kasi sayang ang P5M a day payola din yan sa Malacanang. Corrupt yang Aquino Administration na yan. Sure na sure na ako.
Iba etong PNoy Administration. Hindi eto santo-santita na nasilaw sa pera. Eto ay talagang corrupt-minded people eto from the beginning na nag-struggle for power para sila naman ang mangurakot.
Hindi natin alam kung sinong kandidato ang honest sa pag-babago. Pero definitely etong naka-upo ay hindi honest. PNoy is a well media packaged canned good, pero ang laman pala ay puro bulate. Kawawa ang naka-bili, no return no exchange.
I dedicate this blog to my friends who celebrate their birthdays today.
