Katas ng Corruption-Suicide and Betrayal

Dear insansapinas,

Judas kissing Jesus

Sa latest episode ng NCIS, natagpuan nila ang Navy Commander na patay. May gunshot wound sa dibdib at nakuha pa nila ang bala. Ang crime scene ay ang kaniyang quarters. Magulo ang loob at parang may away na nangyari.


Sa imbestigasyon, lumabas na suicide pala yon dahil sa despondent ang commander ng barkong iyon. Para hindi mapahiya ang commander kahit patay na, pinalabas ng nga tauhan niya na murder ang naganap.


Ngayon iba-iba ang interpretasyon sa suicide ng yumaong General Reyes. Mainit ang Senate. Sinasamantala  ang init  habang ang BETRAYAL ang menu of the season. What's good in the betrayal is that corruption that is privy only to a few is being unraveled to the public. The irony of it is that participants in this cenaculo are themselves katas ng corruption. I do not mean the whistleblowers only. I am referring to some of the "honorable" legislators of the nation.


Betrayal kills. The first known victim was Jesus Christ. He was betrayed for 30 silver coins by Judas who in turn killed himself. Come ot think of it, siya rin ang may hawak ng budget ng mga Apostles. The blood money which was returned to the high priests was used to buy a cemetery lot for people who died while visiting the place.


The greater the trust to a person who betrayed, the greater is the distress and emotional impact to the one betrayed.


When a person feels that he has been betrayed, he may seek for justice or revenge.The revenge may take a lifetime involving generations.


As I have said, it takes a whole village to make a corruption possible, There are so many people involved. In an organization, the accountant would be the first to know if there is an anomaly. The auditor too. The signatory of the check. The person who authorized the transaction. The beneficiary of the windfall.


Once a person is suspected of graft, all people in his office are no doubt involved.


People who do not want to be involved simply get out of the organization or turn blind to what's going on.


But there is another party to corruption---the Corruptor. The Private companies which get the contract as suppliers.



The corruption practices in the military have been there regardless who the administrators were. It is only the faces and the names which changed. As there is a new administration, a new group of contractors would like to have the piece of the cake too. Tanggal ang mga suppliers ng past administration-pasok ang grupo ng bagong administration. Weather-weather lang. Parang gulong. Umiikot. Meron gustong sumakay. Pag hindi pinasakay, lalagyan ng pako ang gulong. Flat.



When I was just a new accountant, I have seen how  money was paid  to  government officials. Our company was one of the suppliers which delivered ghost purchases,
Hindi ako nagtagal doon. Nakakasuka. Tapos nakikita ko ang mukha ng anak ng corrupt na official na yon. Ngayon. Aktibo rin. May ambisyon pang maging presidente. Katas ng Corruption.

haha. ang ganda-ganda. pwede ba irepost to cathy sa blog ko? ito ang tingin kong pinakatamang assessment sa level ng corruption sa pilipinas, ayon sa mga alingasngas na narinig ko from first-hand sources (the ones who were pressured to fudge figures, bribed not to sing, etc. duh!). haha

sandali ku-kurap muna ako. hahaha

akala ko pa naman lumipat ka na ng channel. narenew pala ang contract mo. Kasingkit ka pa rin. hehehe

totoo yan. kapag nakikita mo ang mga milyon milyong available gastusin, di ka ba magagahaman?

Ngayon palakihan sila ng kurakot. Kukurakot nga lang naman bakit di pa sagarin.

Nasaan ba ang aking magic wand.

Welcome back habang hindi ka pa bumabalik sa boondocks.

resty,
ang daming pulitiko diyan na may bahay dito. Minsan nga sa isang village, magkakatabi sila.

ang style nila, mag-apply ng green card ang mga asawa, fallback nila pag mainit na sa pinas.
