Sabi nga nila, the problem with Filipinos is that they have short span of memory. They forgot that the Aquino administration which is being praised to high heavens by the Team Noynoy did not make the country progress economically. Brownouts lasted up to eight hours. Coup attempts never stopped because this was the situation when the salawikain: Ako ang nagtanim, ako ang nagbayo, ako ang nagluto, iba ang kumain became applicable.
So 'yong mga nagbayo, nagalit dahil nga naman, they blinked; naagaw tuloy sa kanila ang tsansa na pinaghirapan nilang matupad.
Ang hero doon ay hindi ang mga Aquino kung hindi ang mga tao.
Nakita ba nila kung paanong hinarap ng tao ang mga kanyon. Nandoon ba si Kris, nandoon ba si Noynoy, nandoon ba ang mga Aquino sisters?
I am not favoring any candidate pero kung may magbibigay sa akin ng Hermes bag, hindi pa rin ako boboto.... pag ayaw ko. Total hindi naman ako gumagamit ng bag. Bayong pa. Naiinis lang ako sa mababaw na mga reason if they are really reasons at all para raw iboto si Noynoy . Let me talk with Kung Fu Shoes, my political anal-yst.
Me: Iboboto mo ba si Noynoy dahil "quote and unquote: sa pagtatanggol sa demokrasya. Di nga ba, may bala pang nakabaon sa ibat-ibang parte ng katawan ni Noynoy sa pagtatanggol ng estado at demokrasya?
Kung Fu Shoes: Being a soldier fighting to preserve democracy is different from fighting to avoid getting killed in a coup attempt. Hindi bansa ang iniisip noong mga oras na yon kung hindi ang huwag maagaw sa kaniyang nanay ang power.
Me: Iboboto mo ba si Noynoy dahil "quote" and unquote"ang kanyayang vice president ang nagsisilbing salamin ng pagkatao ng mga kandidatong pagkapangulo, base sa uri ng sakripisyo na kanilang sinuong.
Kung Fu Shoes: That's politics. Roxas was not making good in the surveys. The party has to select someone who has a bigger chance to win. This is not because Noynoy is better than Roxas: this is more of party survival amidst the multi-party system of the country.
His mother just died and the people is still laden with emotion.
Kung hindi kaya namatay si Cory, iisipin nilang i-launch ang candidacy ni Noynoy. Even his mother advised him not to seek a higher position.
Me: Iboboto mo ba si Noynoy dahil "quote" and unquote" Walang issue ng katiwalian laban kay Noynoy. Hacienda Luisita can not be an issue not only because Noynoy owns only 1% of it but also because Hacienda Luisita is a private company.
Kung Fu Shoes: The issue about Hacienda Luisita is more on the passage of CARP during his mother's administration which enable the family to choose a more beneficial alternative to the owners rather than the landless farmers. A one per cent ownership is not a small deal. In a corporation, one share of stock can deliver the votes needed to pass a resolution. Tell that to the marines that he is not involved. Aside from the marketing stint, his only other employer was Hacienda Luisita.
Me: Iboboto mo ba si Noynoy dahil "quote" and unquote"
Noynoy is being endorsed by statesmen and honorable personalities. Jovy Salonga, Padaca, Among Ed, Randy David, Leah Salonga, Dinky Soliman, Romulo,etc. Mga kapuso and kapamilya stars, in an unprecedented move, united to endorse him.
Kung Fu Shoes : But of course Kris is begging the stars to endorse the brother. But this is ridiculous, if a product which is untested yet is endorsed by a celebrity, will you buy the product?
Me: Iboboto mo ba si Noynoy dahil quote and unquote:Si Noynoy ay nakakaunawa sa kahinaan ng mga may kapansanan. He took care of Josha, isn’t it? And he showed compassion and understanding to the handicapped. This is a mark of a real compassionate leader.
Kung Fu Shoes -
If a person is presumed to become a good president just because he took care of a mentally challenged individual, then the caregivers of the s" slow" developers can qualify as a president. As if the work of the President is to be able to undestand the needs of people with mental issues. Baka akala niya nurse ang kailangan.
