Teodoro: A Mistaken Pick

Now, there are two candidates for president from the Cojuangco clan. Gibo Teodoro and Noynoy Aquino are both from the Cojuangco family and now representing their political party, Lakas-Kampi-CMD and Liberal Party, respectively.

Teodoro was a mistaken pick. Although he is a bright guy, being a UP and Harvard graduate and a bar topnotch caliber, he has no record of a remarkable bill passed into law that may be attributed to his name or any accomplishment that may warrant a better performance in the public service, particularly being a congressman representing the First District of Tarlac province. It is presumed that he was appointed as Secretary of the Department of National Defense in preparation for presidency being rammed to our throat by the administration party and their sponsors. For Noynoy, being a Senator convinced by the advice of a fifth grader –as he stated during his acceptance speech on the party meeting- he should have stayed in the enclosure together with the Carmelite sisters of a provincial convent for the solemn repose of his parent’s soul. He is just like a prey in the school of sharks without their guidance. Delving into politics and be marinated on his own …para siyang maamong tupa sa harap ng nagdidingas na mga mata ng mababangis na tigre sa larangan ng politika. (he is like a meek lamb before the burning eyes of the tiger in the political wilds.)

Only when it Rains

And it poured, particularly, in Luzon flooding Metro Manila and suburban areas.

Pagsanjan On My Bike

We met again with my fellow bikers at Daanghari in Las Pinas City. It was a good sunny day after a week of heavy rainfall and hibernation. Cycling hobbyists were bustling on the famed bikers’ road like roasters flapping their wings and crowing with the delight of dawn and ready to challenge every length of the road. And we, while under the shade of a Tamarind tree beside Daangreyna road where we frequently take a rest and made shaggy dog stories of our youthful days, hatched another biking expedition plan. Pagsanjan on our bike!

Brief Accounts of Presidentiables

Filipinos are easily dupe with politics. They are indulged with it and do not realize that they are always in the losing end. They give way just for pity and forget the capabilities of one who will lead them. It does not matter whether a candidate they elect can really lead but as long as he is popular and/or a relative of aggrieved or assassinated party he is assured of a sympathy vote. And they always fret when the leader they installed is incapable of instituting change. Anyway in this part of the world, the poor and uneducated who are the majority always decide the fate of the state.
