View on Pre-electioneering campaign

There are a lot of things that I really hated about Philippine Politics, and I think enumerating it here would do me no good at all since it would be a waste of time to talk about. More so a lot of people who surfs the internet hated politics as the main topic so I'd just make this post nice and sweet (in irony of course).

What to say about this country's political domain? If I say that this country had a lot of unqualified political aspirants on highly coveted public positions would it mean that I'm generalizing or am I just seeing the transparent fact? If I say that almost all unqualified political aspirants are power-hungry corrupt tyrants, would I be lying if I said that indeed it's true and irrevocable otherwise? More so, if I also state that most of those good politicians this country had were easy tempted by anything provided there is money, power and influence involved would you believe me?

Well, I can't honestly prove these accusations right now despite this is already a known fact, but I can somehow provide concrete examples of these instances. However, let me get to my point straight first before this goes off topic. Right now "pre-electioneering" is starting to occur in this country despite the next national elections that would happen two (2) years from now. It seems that their wasting their money or better yet placed as people's money from taxes just for their faces to be seen on television commercials giving greetings for successful graduates, endorsing products so that their name and faces may be seen in print and billboard etcetera, etcetera. This is already happening and it's really quite disturbing. Why wouldn't these politicians start acting and do their basic jobs in making and enacting laws rather than showing their faces on television screens endorsing detergents and whitening pills! Would that help in improving the impoverished condition of the country or would that help them boost their public appearance to gather enough votes in the position that they’re aspiring?

Next point that I need to holler out is really the most nut-cracking news that I ever heard this week. Manny Pacquiao again is running for congress next elections! My God, didn't he learned that a lot of his Gen San constituents and a lot of Filipinos doesn't want him to be seated in any public office. What in the world would a non-lawyer or a non-degree holder in legal management and similar courses do in congress? Sit? Stare? Doodle? Yes, provided he now bears the high school equivalent diploma, that is not even enough to make and pass a bill that is highly written in English.

Okay, I understand his ideology on helping a lot of people, and he can do that without even being elected as congressman, but please never run in a corrupt and filthy position that the government offers. Being a congressional representative isn't a sign of stature in life in this country, it's a sign of corruption and I don't want to see your good name being bastardized and scandalized by it!

Filipinos wants reform, and I think reformation of the government would only happen if all the masses would vote for qualified nominees and not artists, athletes, singers, etcetera, etcetera, that doesn't have any degree and background on any pre-law courses, nor not even a lawyer. What will happen if these popular people again would be elected? Who would run the government? They're leech advisers? For heaven sake, I can't bear another one president seated for only two years, deposed, and now a convict for a crime everyone knows that he might have participated in but doesn't have full knowledge about it. More so, I can't bear another usurper to be the next president.

Activists against Oil Price Hike: Opinion

Okay, this would be a super small rant post. I just need to voice out my opinion on this topic to soothe my annoyed nerves.

First and foremost issue to spare, a small (in)famous third world country like the Philippines, naturally doesn't produce oil for its consumption. Everybody knows this, this is a fact! Philippines doesn't have oil for consumption that is why it commissioned foreign explorer and discoverer to check whether there are oil reservoir in this country. Since this country doesn't have oil to use, ALL OIL COMPANIES STATIONED IN THIS COUNTRY IMPORTS ITS PRODUCTS for their consumers to use. So why do these activists force these companies to cut their prices down? Are these activists thinking or what? FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE, THESE COMPANIES ARE ONLY BUYING THEIR COMMODITY ON THE WORLD MARKET, SO WHY PUT THE BLAME ON THEM!

If you activists wished that these oil prices would go down GO ON THE OIL PRODUCING COUNTRIES AND RALLY THERE. They're the one's imposing the price so GO THERE! Release all your grievances there. Period.

Second issue, if you activists hoped that these oil prices would somehow go down, demand the usurper's government TO REMOVE THE TAXES AND THE ROYALTIES IT TAKES FROM THESE PRODUCTS and see its effects on the whole economy as well.

Now I rest my case. You all make proper conclusions on this world problem.

Manny: Champion Again?!

Manny Pacquiao Won Again? Urgh! I just hate it! I honestly really do hate it if he won any boxing competition!

I hate him to win not because I hate him personally or what, but because every time he won all the necessary issues that needs addressing and answers are always set aside for the euphoria brought about by his success!

I as well do like him to win his bouts against his adversaries, but after that it's over. I don't want him to be treated like a hero that most Filipinos would think of; the kind of hero that would help them through all their ups and downs and alleviate their sufferings, when in fact every time he wins his bouts every national issues are forgotten and eclipsed by his triumph, until it is well forgotten by most Filipinos themselves.

Now what, will the issues pertaining to national problems be resolved? For example, the food shortage? Will his winning in the said sport bring about as many foods as before to the platters of the poor? Another thing, will this triumph against his adversary make the oil prices drop until each and every Filipinos suffering from it would be free from their burden? Will his success cause all those missing bodies in the sea to be found? No right.

Hence, I just hope that the euphoria would not extend to become like a festivities again that spanned for more than months covered by each national televisions. I just hope that Filipinos would wake up and snap to it early and go out and find the solutions to their own problems with their own hands.
