Tatakbo si Danton

Karaniwan, kung presidential election, straight ticket ang binoboto ko, naniniwala ako na dapat (ideally) masigasig ang suporta ng Kongreso sa Pangulo para magawa niya ang repormang gusto niyang isulong. Pero kung matutuloy ang pagtakbo ni Danton Remoto bilang senador malamang hindi mangyari ito ngayong taon.

Mas matindi ang paniniwala ko na kababuyan ang ginawa ng COMELEC sa Ang Ladlad party para hindi ko iboto is Danton.

Tyranny of the Majority

Ipinagbawal ng switizerland ang pagtatayo ng mga minarets
"The referendum to ban the towers or turrets attached on mosques from where Muslims are traditionally called to prayer was approved by 57.5 percent of voters who cast ballots and in 22 out of the country's 26 cantons."
Ang ganda pa naman ng pagtingin ko sa switzerland, pero ang kikitid pala ng utak ng mas nakararaming tao dun.

Tatakbo si Gloria

Bishop: God save Pampanga from Arroyo

Hindi ko maubos maisip kung bakit takot na takot yung ibang tao sa pagtakbo ni Presidente Arroyo bilang Congressman. Sa pagbasa ko, ikinakatakot nila na sa pagiging Congressman, maipagpapatuloy ni Pres. Arroyo ang kanyang kapangyarihan. Pero paano? Kung si Teodoro siguro ang mananalo at si Pres. Arroyo ang malaking dahilan ng pagkapanalo niya, bka maging Speaker si Pres. Arroyo sa susunod na Kongreso. Pero maski na maging speaker siya, sa palagay niyo ba ay magpapadikta si Teodoro sa kanya sa buong termino nito? At kung hindi naman si Teodoro manalo, asa pa si Pres. Arroyo na magiging speaker siya. Maski na yung partido niya ang pinakamadami na maipanalo sa Kongreso, magbabalimbingan lang naman yung mga yon. Kung sino pa rin ang gusto ng susunod na Presidente, siya ang magigign Speaker.

Hindi ko rin maubos maisip kung bakit gugustuhin ni Pres. Arroyo na maging Congressman. Sa ngayon, bilang Presidente, lahat ng iutos niya ay kailangan na sundin na lahat na kawani ng Gobyerno, pero pag Congressman siya, kailangan pa niya na makipag negotiate sa kung sino-sinong tao at kung ano anong ahenisya para lang makuha yung kanyang CDF. Kung maging oposisyon pa siya, bka i-freeze pa ng namumunong partido ang CDF niya gaya ng ginagawa ng partido niya ngayon sa oposisyon.

At least kung magretiro na siya, puede siyang umarte na statesman, above the fray of normal politics. Pero habang nasa loob siya ng pulitika, makikita siyang partisano at lalo lang siyang madudungisan. Kung anot-anuman, gusto ka pa rin mapanood kung pano ang magiging pakikitungo sa kanya ng mga nasa Kongreso ngayon pag hindi na niya kontrolado ang CDF nila at parehas na lang sila ng puesto.

Magpalaganap ng condom

Parang awa niyo na.

HIV infection on the rise among RP youth, says UN agency
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cases among Filipino youth "have been increasing at an unprecedented rate," the United Nations representative’s office in Manila has warned.

"And while the country is still within the target of less than one percent of the population for HIV—the AIDS-causing virus—the rising number of HIV cases has become a cause for alarm," said the UN office in a report.

The report, a copy of which was furnished the Inquirer, said, "HIV cases among the 15-24 age group nearly tripled from 41 in 2007 to 110 in 2008."

Takot sa Bading

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Hindi pinayagan ng COMELEC na ma-accredit ang Ladlad party dahil daw sa imoral ang mga ito.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Wala na kong magawa kundi matawa, kasi kung hindi maiiyak na lang ako. Nabasa niyo yung dahilan nung COMELEC? Imoral daw ang Ladlad dahil sa isinusulong nito ang karapatan ng mga bakla.

Kailang pa naging imoral ang magsulong ng karapatan ng mga tao.

Isa pang nakakatawa, di ko lang alam kung tama yung quote ng Inquirer
“If you resort to matters of morality, there is nothing wrong about quoting the Bible or Koran but this does not mean I am not imposing my religion."
Nakita niyo? double negative, ibig sabihin positive. maski di sinasadaya sinasabi ng Komisyoner na ito ng COMELEC na ginamit niyang pamantayan ang sinasabi ng kanyang relihiyon sa pagpataw ng desisyon tungkol sa kung dapat nga ba na ma-accredit ang Ladlad bilang party list group.

Sa ginawang ito ng COMELEC, isa lang ang puedeng dahilan, takot sila sa bakla. Hahahahahahahahaha, kala ko pa naman mga lalaki sila, di pala. Bahag ang buntot nila pag nakakita ng bakla.

Pakikiramay

Una sa lahat, nais kong ipabatid ang aking pakikiramay sa pamilya ni Alecks Pabico. Hindi ko siya kakilala pero nung may isinulat ako tungkol kay Dr. Escultura, yung article ni Alecks ang nagbigay ng lakas ng loob sa akin para magpatuloy sa pagsusulat tungkol doon.

Kanina ko lang nalaman na pumanaw na pala si Alecks Pabico, nanlumo ako dahil isa itong malaking kawalan sa Pilipinas. Isang mabuting tao at manunulat ang nawala sa ating bayan.

Pinoy sa NBA

Sa mga sumusubaybay sa NBA, di na siguro balita na si coach Spoelstra ng Miami Heat ay may dugong pinoy. Kauuwi lamang niya sa Pinas at kinuwento niya yung karanasan niya.

Muntik na pala siyang maglaro sa PBA:
"I really wanted to play in the professional league over here out of college," he said. "I was recruited over here by Jim Kelly, who is now a scout with the Toronto Raptors. My plan was to come over here. I was going to play as a Filipino-American, so I would have played as one of their locals.

"Instead, I had the opportunity in Germany and I wanted to see Europe. My every intention was to play in Europe for a couple of years and then come back and finish it up and play, whatever, five, six, seven years in the Philippines. But then I got the opportunity with the Heat. So it's probably the only regret, not the way it turned out, obviously, but I wish I would have had an opportunity to play here for at least a season."

Longest thread

I'm an occasional blogger. No one except my friends and relatives semi-regularly visit this blog. My one claim to semi-fame was my writing to the Manila Times when they asserted that Dr. Escultura disproved Andrew Wiles proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.

An out shoot of this dispute with the Manila Times and Dr. Escultura was my creating the Salenga Award to honor those exemplary Filipinos who contributed to the development of Filipino's interest in science through the propagation of their crackpot theories.

Dr. Escultura is the first and only recipient of the award so far. Little do i know that the small post twitting Dr. Escultura will grow to have the longest comment thread in my little blog. Not only has Dr. Escultura visited to yet again spout his theories but (if you believe the writer) Salenga himself has deemed it proper to grace the blog with his presence.

I feel so honored.

p.s

Since i'm writing about Dr. Escultura, I would like to point out that he also left a comment to a long buried post where I quoted and agreed with a column by Alex Magno. In his comment, it seemed that Dr. Escultura mistook Alex Magno for Alecks Pabico. I think Dr. Escultura needs medical attention.

Now I'm a fan

I used to watch Alyssa Milano in the sitcom Who's the Boss? then when she grew up, her other works. Now I fond out from Truehoop that there's a basketball team in Italy named Alyssa Milano. If Alyssa Milano is in anyway involved in that team, then they've just gtten another fan.

Say Chiz

Tatakbo daw sa pagka pangulo si SEnador Chiz Escudero dahil "
...we need a leader that can provide solutions to the unemployment problem, the clamor of teachers for higher salaries and [I am] a man that could address the issue on hunger and poverty," he told reporters here.

Escudero said what the country needs is a leader who has a vision similar to that of the first black American president.

He said he was not comparing himself to Obama but that he believed he could be a good president with the help of the people, especially the youth."
una sa lahat, pano niya nasabi na hindi niya inihahambing ang kanyang sarili kay Pangulong Obama ng Amerika? Sinong bobo ba naman ang gusto niyang goyoin? Ang kapal naman ng mukha niya.

Hindi ko talaga maubos maisip kung bakit naging popular si Sen. Escudero sa mga Pilipino. Oo nga guapo siya, matatas magsalita, matalino. Pero naman, napaka doble kara naman niya.

Noong Pangulo pa si Pangulong Estrada at binabantan siyasa corruption atbp, isa si Sen Escudero sa mga sumuporta kay Pangulong Estrada. Tapos, naging anti-corruption siya nitong si Pangulong Arroyo na ang naka-upo pero nung manalo siyang Senador, nakasama siya sa Mayorya.

Wala pa naman akong masuportahang Presidentiable ngayon, parang wala ng matino na tatakbong Presidente. Bagay, lagi namang talo yung mga matitino (Salonga - 1992, Roco 1998 at 2004). Sino ba naman ang mag aakala ns si Pangulong Ramos ang tatanghalin nating pinakamagaling na Pangulo ng Pilipinas nitong nakaraang 20 taon.

Nakupo naman.

Nasapian

Hanggang ngayon pala ay nangyayari pa to sa Pinas, mga estudyanteng nasasapian ng masamang espiritu. Nung bata ako nangyari ito sa paaralan ko, mga batang nasapian daw, tinawanan ko noon, at nakakatawa pa rin hanggang ngayon.

Sino ba itong principal na ito na nagpapasok ng kung sino sino sa eskuwelahan para i pray over ang mga estudyante dito? DApat sa principal na ito ay sisantihen. Ang papel niya ay bigyan ng edukasyon ang mga estudyante at hindi magpapasok ng kung sino-sino para sa kung anog gawain.

Pork

I was reading Dispatches from the Culture Wars about US President Obama's stimulus plan and I was struck by this comment from Lurkbot.
Am I the only one tired of hearing this word "pork" used to mean "any project not located in my district?" A lot of things need doing. Only a fraction of them will get done, but all of them are done Somewhere.

If the representatives of Somewhere aren't advocating for projects that benefit their constituents, then it's time for the Somewherians to vote them out and get someone who will!
Pork barrel projects get a lot of criticism, and a lot of them deservedly so, but not all pork barrel projects are bad, just like not all politicians are corrupt. The trick is knowing what project is just waste and who are the incorruptible politicians. The problem of course is that its hard to do so.
