Jesus and GMA
Saying President Arroyo is “being crucified for scoring low in opinion survey,” the oldest member of the House of Representatives, 83-year-old Cebu Rep. Pablo Garcia Sr. has likened GMA to Jesus Christ, to which Jesus Christ said, “Shut up Hestas!”
A number of people have lambasted Cebu Rep. Pablo Garcia Sr. for comparing President Arroyo to Jesus Christ. Come on, let’s not be too harsh on him. We can’t blame the guy if he spoke as if he knew Jesus that well. They’re childhood neighbors!
Cebu Rep. Pablo Garcia Sr. has drawn flak for comparing President Arroyo to Jesus Christ. Opposition members and anti-GMA groups have ganged up on him. Because of too much stress, reports say Garcia has been rushed to the hospital. As of press time, only his closest friends were allowed to visit him, namely… Noah, Moses, and Abraham.
The Impeachment Complaint
Voting 42-8, the House of Representatives justice committee junked the fourth impeachment complaint filed against President Arroyo. After four years, the opposition’s record is now zero wins, 4losses (0W-4L); Jose De Venecia is 3W-1L, President Arroyo, 4W-0L, and her allies in Congress, 500K-1M.
After only three hearing days, the House committee on justice junked the impeachment complaint filed by Jose “Joey” De Venecia III against President Arroyo. The opposition is now evaluating whether the younger De Venecia has gained enough exposure in those three days of full ANC coverage for him to be included in their Senate slate.
The House justice committee has junked the impeachment complaint filed against President Arroyo for insufficiency in substance. Akbayan Rep. Rissa Hontiveros-Baraquel calls it an “abuse of discretion.” Businessman Joey De Venecia calls it “substance abuse.”
Cong. Jose De Venecia’s biographical book has been generating big buzz of late, and is predicted to become a best seller once it is released. Kudos to its writer, Brett Decker, and to the group in charge of promo & publicity, the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
We cannot assume the injustice of any actions which only create offense, and especially as regards religion and morals. He who utters or does anything to wound the conscience and moral sense of others, may indeed act immorally; but, so long as he is not guilty of being importunate, he violates no right. ~Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt
