The political machinery of some presidential candidates are already in the damage campaign phase.
The issue of autism started from the camp of former President Estrada. The story did not have much impact to the candidacy of Noynoy since article had a lot of flaws. The survey still showed that he is leading by a big margin.
Here comes the demand for the medical records of the presidential candidates because of alleged autism history in the growing up years of a candidate.
Here is the article from Manila Standard.
Candidates asked to bare medical records
As to who is asking, here is an excerpt of the news:
A PRIVATE think tank associated with former President Fidel Ramos is urging all presidential aspirants to make their medical records public amid reports that one of them had “a history of being an autistic during his growing-up years.”
The Center for Issues and Advocacy on Wednesday said candidates baring their medical history would prove to the public that they were “sane and capable of handling the rigorous demands of the presidency.”
Kasama ba dito ang signs for dementia and obsessive compulsive behavior? Since this is not required by the law, can they pressure the candidates to make their medical records public?
What if all but one complied with the request?
I was requested to participate in the research survey by a reader of my Now What, Cat?
I want to participate but I do not believe in surveys especially if I do not know how the respondents were chosen . Like me for example. Do they know that I am not a Filipino citizen?
Who was it who said that surveys measure emotions and prejudices and not logic?
The party who requested the survey can manipulate the results that best serve their intentionslash motive by the manner by which the questions are structured and the way the questionnaires are distributed.
Sandali, nakadalawang canned soda yata ako ngayon at bigla akong naging seryoso.
Matagal ko ring tinitigan ang balitang ito na kung hindi lang ako nakasalamin, baka natunaw ang aking monitor. Ganiyan ako. May pagka-autistic. Focus and attention ko kung ako ay nagbabasa at nag-iisip at the same time. Sabi ng mother ko noon binabatukan niya ako at baka raw ako mamatanda dahil di ako sumasagot pagtawag niya. Pero iyon ang phase ng mga bata na nagkakaroon ng temporary hearing impairment lalo kung uutusan.
