How deeply corruption in the Philippine goverment permeates in the system

Are you not wondering how it's gonna be when GMA's term as Philippine president will be further perpetuated?

It's gonna be an "opium to the people" to borrow Karl Marx depiction about religion.

Come to think of it. The last bastion for truth and justice like Court of Appeals and its justices are now subject of controversy! And that to me is very alarming!

What does it tell us? It tells us one thing, that in GMA's administratuon corruption is not just rampant, it's even permeated in the entire system even to last bastion of truth and justice. Mind you, this may have happened in times of other adminsitrations, but one thing is certain, it is not as brazen as it is now.

With this scenario, here's my question: "Quo vadis Pilipinas?"

GMA's Mistake of the Nation Address

The predictable drama of GMA's SONA which is truly fictional rather than real can be surmised into these:

Since the plot is predictable, (GMA is fond of using people both in literal and figurative sense) the mentioning of those people who worked in Hanjin, the farmer who farms a ten (10) hectare land etc... All of these people who lives have improved as per GMA's own economic standard failed and dfied the principles of ecomomics both in macro and micro economics.

Why? because these people she mentioned and presented in her SONA do not represent the entire people or the real situation of those who are still living in subsistence if not on a "hand to mouth" existence.

Nakakatawang nakakalungkot.

Nakakatawa dahil GMA seems convinced in her own lies, that apparently the people she presented whose lived have improved also represent the real scenario of other people living below poverty line. I remember in statistics and metres (Methods of Research) subject in graduate school, these "sample of population" that GMA presented are insignificant in terms of its relations to actual value or result of "ramdom sampling". GMA ought to know that because ipinagmamalaki nya na ekomomista sya!

Nakakalungkot dahil yung mga politikong pulpol ay pumapaapak ---- "on cue" sa bawat kasinungalingan ipinagmamalaki ni GMA. Sa totoo lang, kung ang pagsisinungaling ni GMA ay nakakatangkad, eh baka mas mataas pa si GMA sa "tore ng babel". Anong sa palagay nyo?

Maraming pagkakamaling ginawa si GMA at batid ng bawat Pilipino yang katoohanang yan, pero tila bulag o manhid na ang mga tao. May dalawang taon pa tayong magtitiis. Minsan nakakapagod na nga at nakakamanhid na din. Pero sana, pakiusap ko patuloy pa din tayong maningigan at ilahad ang katotohanan.

Batid natin na ang State Of the Nation Address ay isang Mistake Of the Nation Address! Ikanga na Vilma Santos sa isang commercial, "At yan ang totoo!"

Mabuhay ang Pilipino!

Congratulations, Jim! You make Filipinos all over the world proud of you in your "obra maestra" --- TRIBU!

Once again, depsite all the scandals that beseiged our government and the lack of support and indifference from the government for those who are in the Arts and Culture sectors, Direk
Jim Libiran has brought honor and glory to the Filipino people not only in Europe, but in the entire world!

Jim’s "Tribu" is the only non-European film to win in the festival in the Pari de l’Avenir award, or Youth Jury Prize, at the Sixth Paris Cinema International Film Festival. “Tribu” competed with films from France, Japan, China, Haiti, Mexico, Great Britain, Hungary and Germany.

But as the cliche goes, "behind the success of a man is a woman". Congrats also to Mitchelle, the multi-talented and lovely wife of Jim. Unknown to many, Mitchelle is also a pastry chef apart from being a film producer.

Back in France, I also hear from the grapevine that Philippine Ambassador to France José Abeto
Zaide, snubs the Philippine delagates in France. Instead, this "uncultured" ambassador opted to rub elbows with Sharon Cuneta!

Hoy Ambassador Zaide, kung kamag-anak mo man si Gregorio Zaide a history book author eh parang di mo sinasabuhay ang mga aral nya. Why did you anub the Philippine delagates in the Sixth Paris Cinema International Film Festival? Ganyan ba turo ng ninuno mo o ganyan ka rin umasta dahil mana ka sa "nuno ng punso" na si Gloria ang amo mo? Nakakahiya ka ha, ni hindi mo man lang inisip yung mga mas may kailangan ng tulong mo? Anong mapapala mo kay Sharon Cuneta? Eh makikipagplasikan lang din sa yo yan eh. O baka naman nakikipagplastikan ka din sa kanya.

Ang masama pa, when Jim's "Tribu" won, dun na pumapel ang Zaide na ito. Eh plastic nga mana kay Sharon Cuneta! Hahahaha!

While maybe majority of the Filipinos in France are domestic helpers, you don't have the right to be smug and snub ambassador. Ipapapullout kita dyan eh. You behave like a snooty Frenchman Ambassador or maybe you behave like Sharon Cuneta? Hahaha!

Ambassador, walang personalan. I just would like to know the raison d' etre of your behavior towards the Filipinos delegates in the filmfest.

Jim, keep it up friend and may your "tribe" truly increase!

Mabuhay ang Pilipino! Mabuhay si Jim Libiran sa kanyang obra maestrang "Tribu"!
At mamatay na sana ang lahat ng mga kurakot na alagad ni Gloria!
