Stupid-is-ForeverPsalm of The Politician | Stupid Is Forever by Miriam Defensor Santiago

PSALM OF THE POLITICIAN

The politician is my shepherd, I’m in want,
He makes me to lie down on park benches
He leads me beside the still factories.
He disturbs my Soul.
Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of depression and recession,
I anticipate no recovery, for he is with me.
He prepares a reduction in my salary in the presence of my enemies,
He anointed my small income with great losses.
My expenses alarmingly run over.
Surely unemployment and poverty shall follow me all the days of my life
And I shall dwell in a mortgaged home forever.

Fighting Corruption

by Dr. R. J. A. Olaguer

A book on anti-graft, entitled “Fighting Corruption,” by Dr. R. J. A. Olaguer states that “…because of the mistaken notion that, once the case is filed with Sandiganbayan, the GIPO has already completed his job as far as he is concerned. In the end, the performance of the Office of the Ombudsman as a whole, including GIPO and the ASPs of the Office of the Special Prosecutor shall be judged, not by the number of cases filed before the Sandiganbayan, but by the number of cases subject of conviction by the Sandiganbayan. In short, it is the quality of cases, and not their quanity, that should be of significant consideration. As of last count, the conviction rate in the Sandiganbayan is only 40%.”

“Against all these odds, the Office of the Ombudsman doggedly continues combating graft and corruption in the country. The question is: are we winning the war against graft and corruption?”

Due Process

by Joaquin G. Bernas, S.J.

51Q7tpQbX9L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_“The elementary notion of due process is that it is a law which hears before it condemns.”

Source: –A Living Constitution: The Ramos Presidency” by Joaquin G. Bernas, S.J. 1st ©1999 and 2nd ©2000 printing. Pg. 42 of chapter 2 “The Fear of Martial Rule: Intimations of Authoritarianism”

Comment: — Many people, in the Philippines, are being wrongfully accused before ever having their side of the story heard out. Even if the citizen, or foreigner, is guilty they do have the right to be heard before being condemned, but here in the Philippines, the person is condemned first and than they are left to confirm that it is false and even when they are proven innocent later they are still left to pay the penalty fees that would of never of happen if they were heard out first.

Reading a letter from one side of the story does not in any way confirm if it is true and that is very much what government officials do, they hear only the side of their workers instead of also the side of the one being accused.

LIBERTY or TYRANNY?

“It is enough for good people to do nothing, for evil people to succeed.”
“In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man,
but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

The 1987 Constitution of
the Republican of the Philippines

LIBERTY or TYRANNY?

As much as a person can be held liable for what he does, at the same time he can be held liable for what he does not do. When a person is being assaulted on the street by a group of thugs in plain sight and no one does anything to stop it, all are guilty. —- Mark Glenn

Independence for the Philippines was declared on June 12th, 1898 which makes it our 111th year of celebration.

How many of you, out there, really thought through on what brought this country its Independence? How many of us ever really ponder on just what the design of our flag means when we look at it in honor of remembrance? More »

The doorway of corruption…

In this season of Christmas, ground zero for many Filipinos are our airports with many balikbayans and overseas Filipino workers coming from all over the world. Amid complaints of the state of our airports, one good thing has definitely happened—reforms at the Bureau of Immigration have worked.

People Power & No to RH

People power no-to-rh“It is quite ironic that for a country that gave the world “People Power”, so many RH advocates are so willing to push the passage of the RH bill primarily to stem the tide of “runaway population growth”, to borrow their own term. How easily these RH proponents forget the lessons of the past: that we were able to overthrow a dictator by our numbers. People Power. Power from the People, and of the People.“[1]
