This Government is making me BLUE...and GREEN with envy
EVERYTHING WRONG WITH OUR GOVERNMENT
HAS BEEN SUMMARIZED IN THIS FRONTPAGE FROM
THE PHILIPPINE STAR:
1. The First Gentleman,
implicated in practically every anomalous contract
entered into by his wife's administration.
2. The Great Moro-Moro:
GMA ordering Raul Gonzales and the Department of (in)Justice
to probe the culprits?
Are they planning to stick a thermometer up
the corpulent butt of Mike Arroyo?
3. Our Philippine National Police
in a permanent state of denial in an alternate reality.
4. Greed, NOT Truth, has prevailed.
5. Too many ATENEANs in GMA's Government.

Thank God for
"On many occassions, the Brothers have opened their doors
to those in need of shelter or care,
regardless of religious beliefs or political affiliations.
We believe this practice takes on special meaning today,
as we give sanctuary and protection to the Lozada children
who are members of the La Sallian community."

ANIMO LA SALLE!!!
My other Alma Mater is once again stuck on the hill
and refuses to come down;
it has been eerily, embarassingly quiet
about all the shenanigans of Macapagal-Arroyo et al.
for the past few years.
Whatever happened to "Man for Others"?
Ano ba ito, "Man for Malacanang?!??!"
What the F*ck?!?!??!
The ATENEO used to produce
Jose Rizals, Ninoy Aquinos and Edgar Jopsons.
we let the cowardly NERI
and the pater et fils ARROYO,
not to mention the former Economics professor at the Ateneo,
GMA herself, to represent Loyola's ideals
and run roughshod over our rights as Pinoys.
And the ATENEO community continues to keep quiet.
No one in the Ateneo Administration nor the Ateneo Alumni
has come out officially into the open
to even mildly castigate our government.
Is it because, a few short years ago,
shortly after her accidental proclamation as President,
in a speech at her alma mater on March 15, 2001,
GMA effusively declared:
"MANY OF THE THINGS THAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PRACTICE NOW
AS VICE PRESIDENT,
WERE THINGS REALLY THAT I LEARNED
FROM THE ATENEO ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT...
MY SONS WERE ALSO THERE FROM PREP....
SO, I THANK YOU FOR TEACHING NOT ONLY ME BUT ALSO
MY HUSBAND AND MY CHILDREN...
I HAD ONE CLASSMATE WHO DID NOT BECOME AN ECONOMIST
BUT HE IS NOW THE CHIEF OF STAFF OF THE
ARMED FORCES OF THE PHILIPPINES ANGIE REYES...
SO, I THANK ATENEO FOR TEACHING ME ECONOMICS
BUT I THANK YOU TOO FOR CONTINUING TO HELP ME WITH MY GOVERNANCE
BECAUSE OF THE WISE COUNSEL THAT YOU CONTINUE TO GIVE
AND BECAUSE YOU HELP ME TO PREPARE FOR THIS ROLE."
LET'S WAKE UP THE BLUE EAGLES!!!
they have been snoozing too soundly since 2001...
why the deafening silence from Katipunan?
the cause may be hopeless;
those tilting at windmills are way more impressive
than those idly sitting back, scratching their balls blue.

The LA SALLIANS' arrows
are flying straight and true
and finding their mark.
is the school that's really Flying High.
