Grace Ibuna, Science, Winnie Monsod and Serafin Cuevas

Dear insansapinas,
alicia arroyo and grace ibuna

Tama ang ginawa ni Grace Ibuna na hindi siya nakipagpingkian ng mga salita sa legal na asawa. Alam naman niyang sino ang mahal ng namatay na congressman. Isipin na lang niya ang mga masasayang memories nila. Ang tao naman hindi mo mapipilit sumaya  kasama ang isang taong nawalan na siya ng paggalang at pagmamahal. 
Read and weep. The incoming grade 1 school pupils will enjoy learning because the Science is dropped from the curriculum. Whoa. Here is the news: 
“The Department of Education (DepEd) has decided to drop “Science” from the roster of subjects taken up by incoming Grade 1 pupils in line with its efforts to decongest the Basic Education Curriculum and to make learning more enjoyable to young learners.”“…Mother Tongue, Filipino, Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao, Music, Art, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH), Mathematics, Araling Panlipunan, and English – which will be taught in the second semester and will mainly focus on oral fluency.”

Don't you observe that most of the coloring books of the children feature those of animals? Even those in the province are aware of the live plants and animals before they even start schooling. The drawings in the arts  are mostly flowers, mountains, clouds, suns and stars and other stuff that fall under Science. So why remove Science? I remember when we were required to bring flowers to study the parts and some pictures of animals that we found near our homes. Habul-habol namin ang baboy noon.What are they thinking? Sabi iintegrate daw sa ibang subject. Saan kaya, sa English. These little pigs went to market, these littler pigs had roast beef....

Take the SALNs of P-Noy, from 2006 to 2010, copies of which were provided to me by GMA News TV so that I could provide some inputs (as far as analysis is concerned). Unfortunately, the copies are barely legible, but even so, a malicious mind could make some potentially embarrassing observations (which could very easily be explained away, if a broader perspective were taken).
For example, one could pounce on the fact that a piece of agricultural land in Concepcion, Tarlac, acquired in 1987, was declared as inherited in 2006 but as purchased in 2009. Or that another piece of agricultural land, this time in Capas, Tarlac, acquired in 1985 (inherited), was not declared in his 2006 SALN.
Or one could criticize him (unfairly) of using acquisition cost values for real property, rather than the much higher current or fair market value. And one could potentially go to town about his Times Street residence: he declared it as acquired in 1985 (by inheritance), but it was not included in his 2006 SALN. Also, the current market value he declared on the property (2010 SALN) was P1.96 million—a figure which has not changed since 2007. There is no way that the Times Street property could be worth, at current prices, less than P2 million.
I-discuss kaya ito sa impeachment trial. Palagay ko hindi. Hindi naman daw siya ang nasasakdal. 

Cuevas being harassed to resign

Who wants retired Supreme Court Justice Serafin Cuevas out of the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona?
The 83-year-old Cuevas, who has become a sort of a rock star because of his performance as lead defense counsel in the afternoon TV-radio spectacle before a nationwide audience, has revealed purported efforts by MalacaƱang to get him out just two weeks into the Senate trial.
Cuevas said he had been approached on a number of occasions by a lawyer to deliver a supposed message from MalacaƱang.

 Ay, masama yan. Di ksyo mabibigyan ng five star niyan. Maakusahan pa kayong desperate na kayong matalo kaya pati ang paggamit ng pressure cooker, ginagamit na. Meron naman kayong 100 witnesses.
