The State of the Nation : WHY SO SERIOUS?

Thanks to Pepe Diokno's "Pepe Don't Preach"
Philippine Star column for the gorgeous photo!



I managed to watch the latter half of President Arroyo's
annual address to her congressional dog pound,
the SONAvabitch, and here are my thoughts:



I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of irrelevant factoids
and mountains of incomprehensible lines to defend her VAT,
(no mention whatsoever of how the VAT collections would be distributed)

cringed at the shameless effort to parade "everyday people"
who supposedly are the beneficiaries of this administration,
(including a tribal chief freezing at the Batasan wearing only a G-string)

discombobulated by the sycophantic congressmen's applause
of every inane statement spouted by the "I Am Sorry" lady,
(a record-setting hundred plus clapping interruptions)

and

I just about hollered with glee when GMA announced that
text messages between rival telcos would be lowered
from P1.00 to P0.50!!!
(the only part of the SONA that Pinoys actually understood & appreciated)



At the end of her speech, I realized a couple of things:

1. Our President really is a
JOKER,

and

2. I'm really allergic to her face and voice;
my eyes started to itch and swell, and
this is how I looked like after she finished:

yup, just call me
TWO-FACE!!!

NOTE: malakas daw ang traffic ng SONA 2008 kaya kahit duguin ako pipilitin ko na mag come up ng entry hahahahha. Ready na? Fire!!!!

Frankly my dear, I don’t give a dang! 1st, walang cellphone. 2nd, wala naman akong ka-text noh! Besides, wala din akong pan-load. Qué barbaridad! Hinde man lang ako makikinabang dyan. Sana kahit babaan na lang nila kahit .50c ang kilo ng commercial rice baka matuwa pa ko lol dahil sa totoo lang sawang sawa na ako sa NFA rice na may kahalong pelletes!

o…smile daw muna….

Hinde nyo ba ramdam ang pagbabago? Eh baket ako ramdam na ramdam ko ang pagtaas ng bigas, pamasahe at gasul! Hinde kaya ako maka move onnn!!!

Ok,…seryoso na ha…

I am no pro-gloria…

Bilang tao at isang leader…kitang kita ko ang flaws at imperfections nya…the same way as i see the flaws in me *naks, lume-level kay Gloria hahaha*

But if I have to choose…between Erap and Gloria….eh pareho naman evil corrupt…dun na lang ako sa medyo nag iisip. Hinde ko sinabing hinde nag iisip si Erap pero parang ganun na nga. And as much as I don’t want her as the president…eh sino naman ang gusto nyong pumalit? Aber? Si Noli? Si Loren? O kay Susan tayo?!!

C’mon guys!! Let’s give tita Glo a chance. Nag-sorry na nga yung tao eh. Wala ba kayong mga puso?? hahaha. Wag nyo ng iasa lang sa presidente ang pagbabago. Umpisahan ang pagbabago sa sarili….then sa pamilya…sa barangay…sa syudad and eventually…makakamtan din naten ang pagbabago *crossing fingers lol* Hinde kelanman naging presidente ang solusyon sa lumalalang tag-hirap. Wag umasa sa mga pangako ni Gloria dahil remember, promises are made to be broken!!! ‘day…we cannot change a 3rd world country overnight. Process yan! And sa kaso ng Pilipinas…sa dami ng mga kapalmuks na politico dito sa tin…mahabang process yan unless i-jose rizal yang mga ayuf na yan! Yan naman ang puno’t dulo ng kahirapan ng Pilipinas…tamad na mga officials mga corrupt pa ano ba naman yan! Kaya dapat talaga i-euthanasia lahat ng kurap and that includes gma lol

Weh ano naman ang gusto nyong madinig na sabihin ni Gloria sa SONA nya??

“Mga kapwa ko Pilipino…walang pag-asa ang Pilipinas!!! Pare-pareho tayong gagapang sa lusak! Lahat tayo mamamatay! 10 piso ang kada text globe to globe! E-VAT, gagawing 50%!!! Babagsak ang piso! Magdidildil ang bawat Pilipino ng asin…mamamatay ang lahat ng first born child…”

Eh di ba mas fanget yun. EH pag ganun ba ang ni-report ni Gloria matutuwa na kayo…hinde rin naman di ba.Kayo talaga puro kayo reklamo!!! I say…LET’S GIVE PEACE A CHANCE. Deadmahin ang SONA 2008 dahil kung hinde pambobola eh kathang isip lang hahahha bagkus…pagyamanin ang sarili - sa kaalaman, sa kaisipan, sa kaugalian..mag sumikap!

Uulitin ko…I am no pro-gloria…pero di ko sya titirahin ng masyado dahil ginawa nyo na lahat yun. Hehehe. Itataas ko ng konti lang naman ang dangal ni Gloria hinde dahil malayo ko syang kamag-anak but because I find her cute di bah? Besides, kahit na maglaslas ako dito hinde ko mababago ang pagtaas ng bilihin, pagbaba ng gasul at pamasahe. Kesa ubusin ko ang dugo ko kakalait at kaka-wish na ibagsak ang pamahalaang Arroyo…na hinde naman kaya ng powers ko…I’ll just focus on the brighter side. Chos! Hahahah. Seriously, hinde ko nararamdaman ang pagbabago…kase mahirap pa din ako….wala pa din akong hacienda, rest house at kotse! Hinde pa din ako nakapag bakasyon sa Europe! But I will get there! Yayaman din ako kase i will strive harder harharhar…o baka kase makakapag-asawa ako ng mayamang foreigner lol

Matuto tayo sa mga pagkakamali ng ating mga ninuno. Gamitin ang wisdom. Magbasa. Makibaka. Maging matalino. Mag-sikap. Maging tapat. Pag-ibayuhin ang sarili. Vote wisely. Pero dahil anjan na si Gloria…I hope we could all agree to unite once and for all. Try lang naten na mag-unite kaya noh tingnan naten kung effective tapos pag hinde balik sa dati lol

Sabi nga:

“I could never have fallen in with those radicals who, rather than gain knowledge of the world, would make it change to accept their ignorance.”

shucks, anlalim hahaha hinde ko na-get…nosebleeed bwahaahha!! walang konek…subalit gusto kong i-epal…kanya-kanyang interpretasyon na lang besides matatalino naman kayo

Yaan nyo next election…t-try kong tumakbo as a president but I need donations kaya DONATE TO CHUVANES CAMPAIGN NOW! LOL

i don't understand why she included text messaging in her speech. Granted, we are the text capital of the world but to actually include it in her speech when she there are more important points she needed to address.
Texting is not a basic necessity. We will not die if we don't text. We will die however, if we use the money for food to buy loads for our cellphone. Just goes to show how screwed up our priorities are.
