Department of Injustice

Adda impaulog ti maysa a trial court sadiay Quezon City a warrant of arrest para kenni Baustista, ti chairman ti LTFRB gapu iti kaso nga inyuli ti maysa a bus corporation. Di a natungpal ni Bautista ti panangiyakarna ti franchise ti Bus Corporation. Ket idi agangay ditan nga impaulida ti pannakakemmegna.

Naggapo ni Bautista sadiay Iloilo idi kalman ket sinabat ni Gonzales iti airport idi dumteng tapno iliklikna daytoy iti panangtiliw dagiti sheriff. Manipud domestic airport simmalpotda idiay international airport iti maysa a sekreto a dalan.

Anian a kinabastos ti departamento ti hustisia. Gapu kadi ta maysa isuna a pangulo ti maysa a departamento ken hands-off kaniana ti ngipen ti hustisia. Maysa met daytoy a Gonzales. Nadutokan a kas Sekretario ti hustisia tapno ipatungpalna ti umno. Kunami man a ti hustisia ket para iti sapasap ngem apay nga adda tingtingalanna.

Department of Injustice talaga kadi?

Typhoon Gloria

As typhoon Glenda continuously devastating the country which resulted to the closing of classes of major provinces including Metro Manila and also Northern Luzon, Gloria Arroyo delivered her State of the Nation Address full of promises, dreams for the whole nation. A dreams that she wants to be fulfilled on the rest of her regime.

On her speech, impromesa ti adu nga infrastrature project a para iti intero a pagilian. Maysa a projecto a kasapulan ti trillion a mabusbos tapno maisayangkat ti arapaapna.

Kayatna a saw-en adda manen inayonda a buwis tapno maipatungpalda dayta a kas inaramidda kadaytoy kallabes laeng tapno mapunnuanda ti agkurkurang a National Budget. National Budget a no maminsan kurkurakoten dagiti kunniber iti takem.

Kayatna a saw-en dakkel manen a sakripisio iti agtutuok a puli ni Angkuan. No laeng mabalin nga ipanueg ti danum nga awan ti innapoy tapno makatipid iti gastos. Ngem uray danum ket magatangen ta di met safe ti NAWASA.

Puro arapaap iti intaltalangutangna, dina man laeng dina kamat no ania ti nagapuananna manipud nag-SONA idi napalabas a tawen. No ania ti panagabuso ti rehimenna kadagiti babassit a tattao, ti fertilizer scam a maysa koma a tulong kadagiti ordinario a mannalon. Ti panagbangato dagiti gagatangen gapu iti VAT. Ti kinangato ti gasolina a sagsagabaen dagiti driver ken agramanen kommuter gapu iti pamasahe.

Ipasindayagna ti nagapuanan ni Pacquiao, ti panangabak ti SEA Games Team Philippines, ti panagpantok dagiti napan idiay Mt. Everest, ti pannakabalangat ti Ms. Tourism. Umanay kadi daytoy a nagapuananna? Nakatulongda kadi kadagiti tao iti aglaplapusan a panagrigrigatda.

Nasam-it ti agarapaap no adda kinapudno kadagita a balikas. Ngem no ipromesam ti bulan ket maysa dayta a kinamauyong.

Political Asylum? Jocjoc!

Makapakatawa ni Jocelyn "Jocjoc" Bolante! Apay kunayo? Kalpasan a naglemmeng ken timmalaw ditoy pagilian tayo ket nagdapat idiay US, nagfile idi nakadanon idiay iti political asylum.

Diak met agkabaw ti kunak ta matanddanak pay laeng iti scam nga inaramidna. Ti fertilizer scam. Dinoktorna amin a resibo ta nag price padding kadagiti presio ti abono, agas a pestisidio. Dagitoy ket nairusat nga agpaay koma para kadagiti babassit a mannalon iti Filipinas. Ngem ania ti inaramid daytoy buaya nga opisial ti gobierno lallalona nga immameg dagiti tattao a mangbibiag iti pagilian tayo.

Nagalingasaw ti buyok nga inaramidna ket idi kuan nagpukaw lattan a dida ammo ti ayanna (kas tay kaso met laeng ni Garcillano!) kasla tay bayyek a limned. Ngem imbag pay ta bayyek ta lumned tumpaw daytoy nalaing man ketdi a rumareb ta idi limmung-aw addan iti sabali a disso.

Idi dimmanon idiay Estados Unidos dagos a hinarang dagiti mmigration ofisial. Ket ti ammona makalasat ngem uray no kasano ti kinagalisna adda latta pannakatiliwna. Nagfile iti political asylum ti buaya.

Matandaan a dagiti laeng adda ti karbenganna nga agfile iti political asylum ket dagiti tao nga adda iti pagilian a kas iti Cuba ken dadduma pay nga adda problema ti sistema ti gobiernona. Idi panawen ti Martial Law dagiti dadduma idi nga tao ditoy Filipinas ket timmalawda ket napanda idiay US. Ket idi nakadanonda idiay sada nagpila iti political asylum.

Iti kaso ni Bolante, nalawag met a kas iti init nga awan met ti mangdigdidigra kenkuana no di gapu ti kinakunniber nga aramidna. Kalpasan a nasipsipna ti diro ket kasdiay lattan tapno malibre. Are you Joking Jocjoc? "Jocjoc". Ngem awan ti lusot ni Bolante ta sigun ti source ammon ti US ti kaso na ditoy Filipinas.

After how many months, babalik ka rin hehehe!

Kasla man barbarenaen dagiti problema ti utekko. Nabantot ti ulok. Nagadu ti malipatan a banag nga aramiden. Kurang ti pannaka-organize dagiti pasamak. Ta adda dagiti babassit a banag a no mabaybay-an kasla apoy nga agramaram ket dilnakan amin a madalapusna.

Manipud nagresign tay maysa a kadduak iti trabahona. Amin nga account nga iggemna ket siak ti nangsippaw. Agraman dagiti problema a dimmakel ket dimmakkel ta di a naasikaso a dagus.

Ania pay tinutukakon diay planta tapno laeng mairingpas dagitoy. Uray no naglabessen ket aglalaoken a di makmakan ti aso ti mangmangngeg. Bumara agraman pidit-pidit ta di met aginana ti selpon kadagiti rengrengda. Atleast "better late than never" ngem nakamisuoten tay Project Manager ken bumugkawda payen, ama. Ita medio nakaangesakon ta nalpas met laeng ti phase 1.

Sumarsaruno met a tamingen ket ti account ti Peninsula Hotel. Karugrugi pay laeng ti renovationda. Ti Makati wing ti umuna a trinatarda ket agleppasto inton katapusan ti Septembre.

Di payen makatugaw da tao iti kompiuter tapno koma agsurattak met iti mabalin a putaren. Ta no sumangpetak idiay balay ket kasla nadrain ti utekko. I-openko laeng diay kompiuter ngem apagbiit laeng ta awisennak met ti turog.

Mariknak no adda naliwayak a banag ket umapay kaniak ti pannakapaay. Failure...failure...failure...

Adda pay dagiti rabii a lukagennak ket nakamuttalengak nga awan gapuna. Stress kunkuna ni baket. Imbag laengen ta naganas met latta ti kakaanko. Isu lattan ti pangibukbokan ti imatang.

Impeachment: Uglier the second time around
BABE’S EYE VIEW
By Babe Romualdez
The Philippine Star
07/02/2006

It’s going to be uglier for the lawmakers, uglier for the economy and most of all, uglier for the Filipino especially the poor majority who will be the ultimate losers in the end with this second impeachment. Worse, we also have the unfortunate spectacle of a bishop joining the fray by filing his own impeachment complaint, bucking questions about the separation of the Church and the State by claiming it is a personal act. Some are saying that the bishop should have shed off his religious garb if that were the case. Clearly, this act by the good bishop will only spell more confusion and divisiveness particularly among his flock.

What is really pathetic is that opposition groups have promised to file the same impeachment complaint every day – because they are uncertain when the one-year ban would lapse. They are simply afraid that they will be outsmarted by the administration or that lawyer Oliver Lozano will beat them to the punch. The opposition is resorting to a legal option, and nobody can argue with that. What is clear, however, is that if they do not have the numbers, then why go through it at all? There are some who have pointed out that the opposition have a pending petition before the Supreme Court questioning the outcome of last year’s impeachment vote, so a new complaint can’t be filed. There is also the opinion that they should have studied whether to wait for the SC ruling first before filing the second impeachment bid, or otherwise, they could withdraw the earlier petition to make way for a new impeachment attempt.

Last year, the opposition tried – but exceedingly failed – to muster the necessary 79 signatures or one third of 235 Congressmen to elevate the complaint to the Senate for trial. They could only get 51 signatures, and some of their allies even conveniently disappeared when crunch time came. There were even suspicions that several Congressmen from both sides used the impeachment to get a windfall, referred to by many as "Christmas in July."

This time, they only need 78 signatures, because two Congressmen have become Cabinet officials, Budget Secretary Rolly Andaya Jr. and DILG Secretary Ronnie Puno. Even with this lower number, the opposition is still hard pressed to get the required number. There are 29 names listed as complainants, but our mole tells us that only 26 so far have agreed to sign the complaint. It is being widely suspected that the opposition is resorting to gimmickry to hide the fact that they are more fragmented than ever. The bottom line is, they still don’t have the necessary number of signatures from Congress. These futile attempts will just make the country go around in circles, not going anywhere. It’s like having a storm that just stays in one place, not moving at all but wreaking havoc in the meantime. So why go through the whole process and subject the country to another period of uncertainty for the second time around?

Already there are signs that the renewed attempt might take its toll on the economy again with the weakening of the peso, reaching its lowest this year at 53.57 to the dollar a few days ago. Perhaps members of the opposition should go beyond their egos and focus on the more important things right now – which is to get the economy going and help government – of which they are part of, being Congressmen – address the problems of poverty, over-population, unemployment. We have to bring back the confidence of investors into this country, not scare them off with periodic political disturbances through impeachment bids. As a matter of fact, an SWS survey revealed that Filipinos just want to put all these political issues aside. They want to see some real work being done by legislators to solve this country’s problems and move it forward.

The price of gasoline keeps going up, and basic commodities are getting more expensive and are already beyond the reach of many people. Fifteen years ago, galunggong was a staple, but now it’s a luxury. These are the issues we have to urgently address. Filipinos are getting frustrated, that’s why more and more people are leaving this country to work abroad. In fact, US Consul General Rick Haynes told us the other night that the US Embassy in Manila’s immigrant visa section has become the biggest in the world in terms of the number of applicants trooping to the Embassy, surpassing even Mexico which used to have the largest number of applicants.

When the Republicans impeached Bill Clinton in 1998, they threw everything they had into the process, including the kitchen sink. The attempt failed, because the Senate vote fell short of the two-thirds majority requirement to convict the US president and remove him from office. Once the Republicans lost, they accepted it and consequently stopped the attacks on Clinton and went back to work. But this town is altogether different. It has become a town of vicious, divisive, envious and worst of all, vindictive people. I know for a fact that a number of these so-called civil society members are going against GMA for personal vindictiveness. One was not appointed ambassador, so this person is so bitterly against GMA. The other has a husband who was not appointed to a government-sequestered corporation. It is simply so disgusting to see these people have the temerity to appear so self-righteous and holier-than-thou, knowing fully well their reasons are purely personal.

If these people sincerely believe that GMA has lost her mandate and no longer enjoys the trust and confidence of the people, then they should train their guns on the coming 2007 elections. The only civilized way that this so-called civil society should do is through the elections, where they could prove their point by trouncing the administration candidates in the polls.

Unfortunately, this impeachment is not at all "lovelier the second time around" just like the old familiar romantic tune sang by Frank Sinatra. This impeachment can only be uglier the second time around with more frustrations, more hatred, more viciousness and more vindictiveness coming out of it – in the end making all of us feel uglier and angrier.
