If you have something to say, say it with specifics plez. Hirap sa Pinoy, paligoy-ligoy pa kasi e. @carlosceldran

Check out this mini-rant Facebook rant from Carlos Celdran.
Hay nako. What is wrong with Get Real Philippines? Self-loathing and KSP. Their editors need to get laid.He's obviously got something to say about us, but then won't go into specifics. Pinoy style paligoy-ligoy kung baga. Then somebody points out a possible specific GRP post he is referring to, and Celdran goes "Don't click. Don't give them the clicks they want."

ha ha!

Mon Casiple sounds 'death knell' for the candidacies of all who oppose Noynoy Aquino!

Image
Funny how bozos like Mon Casiple still use popularity as measured by crony "survey" firm Social Weather Stations (SWS) to 'reaffirm' the 'mandate' of Philippine President Benigno Simeon "BS" Aquino III. SWS, if we recall, is part of BS Aquino's notorious Kamaganak Inc clique...
The SWS was founded in 1986 by Dr. Mahar Mangahas, Prof. Felipe Miranda, then DPWH Sec. Jose P. de Jesus (under President Cory Aquino), Mercy Abad among others while Pulse Asia was founded in the 90s when Prof. Felipe Miranda separated from Mangahas and bolted SWS. It should be noted that Managhas is the cousin of the late presidential candidate Fernando Poe, Jr while some of the prominent members of the board and stockholders of the Pulse Asia are blood relatives of Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, official candidate for the president of the Liberal Party. The corporate records of both firms that are available at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will also sho…

New SC Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno 'brings a lot of heavy baggage' - Doronila

Image
Amando Doronila writes...
It’s true that Filipinos expect a fair administration of justice in this changing of the guard from the a much-maligned corrupt regime to one that proclaims itself as the embodiment of unsullied rectitude in governance and as God’s gift to the Filipino people. But this exhortation to Sereno had a hypocritical ring because it was made by a scion of one of the wealthiest landlord families in the country; it was addressed to someone who, as associate justice of the high court appointed two years ago, wrote a dissenting opinion putting the value of just compensation for Hacienda Luisita, which is owned by the President’s kin, at 2006 valuation (P2.5 million per hectare), and not at the 1989 fair market value (P40,000 per hectare).
Now highlighting the doubt cast on the future independence of the high court, he writes further: "These ostensibly amicable relations between the administration and the high court are deceptive and hardly mask the fact that the Pres…

Excerpt from psychological assessment of new SC Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno

Image
New Supreme Court Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno reportedly rated a four in a scale from 1 to 5 (5 being the lowest) in a psychology test administered by the Judicial Bar Council (JBC). The following is an alleged excerpt from the report.
“dramatic and emotional, she appears energetic and all smiles and agreeable, but with religious preoccupation in almost all significant aspects of her life. She projects a happy mood but has depressive markers too. There is a strong tendency to make decisions based on current mood thus, outcome is highly subjective and self-righteous.”

Pro Reproductive Health Bill statement signed by De La Salle University faculty members #rhbill

Image
We, the undersigned Faculty Members of the De La Salle University, acting individually, and with reasoned conviction, cognizant of our role in society as champions of enlightenment and in pursuit of our mission to create a haven for critical Christian thinkers committed to serve society, particularly the poor, assert that:

? The right to life is a fundamental Christian tenet that finds full meaning when combined with the inherent rights of humans to a decent, safe, and productive existence as well as to an all-round development. Thus, beyond protecting the very important right of the unborn, it must extend to a recognition that a life that is weighed down by poverty, sickness, and social inequality–now compounded by environmental stresses–deprives humans of agency to transform themselves and the world for the common good.

? A key dimension of the democratic ideal at the core of our community and country is the promotion of pluralism and diversity. In a society marred by great imba…

Lourdes - God's Chief Justice - Sereno is also self-described humble servant of God

Image
More quotes from the new "Chief Justice" reported on the Inquirer.net:
Sereno, 52, who was leapfrogged over five senior associate justices to become head of the judiciary for the next 18 years or until the retirement age of 70, said it was God who appointed her and that it was probably time to give the leadership of the high court to “one of His humble servants.”

My fellow Filipinos, this should be unacceptable! This is how our Philippine National Police treats our laws! If we tolerate this kind of behavior, I feel sorry for the kind of country my child would grow up too. PLEASE SHARE THIS so that our PNP would understand that we will not tolerate this kind of behavior!

If Manila hadn't turned into a shithole after the 1950s it would still look like this.
