The Great Cicero once said, "Cuiusvis hominis est errare, nullius nisi insipientis in errore perseverare". (Anybody can err, but only the fool persists in his fault.)

The recent stand-off in Manila Pen was a case of a fool insisting in his fault. Perhaps, to the mind of the reader, they might assume that I am referring to Sen. Trillanes. Nope.

Making that assumption is in itself a fallacy "assumptio non probata" (assuming without a proof). The fool in this case is GLORIA MACAPAGAL ARROYO!

Poor GMA, she thinks that she will be forever in power... same goes true to the other fools that surround her. I'm sure the readers know who these people are.

GMA is a fool, because she apparently tries to play "innocent" in the overkill that happened in the Manila Pen done by Esperon. Sorry, I cannot call you a general because you don't earn the title by merits but by mere "SIPSIP" (Severely Insecured Person Seeking for Instant Promotion)!

GMA is a fool for continually ignoring the legit concerns mentioned by Sen. Trillanes and Gen. Lim.

The Manila Pen stand-off was a simple case of "cause and effect". The cause is GMA and her allies, for insulting the intelligence of the Filipino people by denying that corruption does not exist in her administration. Denying it is tantamount to a christian denying the existence of God.

GMA continues to challenge the rule of law simple because she feels and thinks that she is high and mighty.

I remember what my late philosophy professor, Fr. Alois Lehberger said...

"What is the danger of "sophism"? It's making the wrong things right, and the right things wrong".

Now, I know why Cicero came up with that above mentioned quotation. Perhaps, if Cicero were still alive, he would have joined Gen. Lim and Sen. Trillanes in the march and slap on GMA's face the placard containing the quotation about a fool insisting on his fault!

What do you think?
