I like your 1971 and 1980 entries. You spare no one and I like that.

1997 and 1997 – I thought it was a typo. Then I thought. Bagal ko mag-isip. It was no typo, the second one. Clone.

That bit about Sec. Reyes made me laugh. And uncomfortable, if I may add. It made me think if it was a “move” that was supposed to be done in april? You know, to prepare us for an extensive power shortage, resulting in extensive brown outs? Then they’d have an excuse if in May, DURING the elections, those damn counting machines couldn’t work.

There won’t be much outrage nor suspicion on who’s behind it. We’d be “conditioned” by then. Hmm. Me thinks there was a “misschedule”.

Am I being paranoid or is there some truth to this? Heehee. It’s a beautiful mind 🙂

Btw, I was implying that the “mano-mano” counting of votes will be done again because of the power outage. Issue’s not really about the counting machines. Hay cheaters. Bakit hindi nalang kayo nanatili sa classroom. Ay, sa classrooms nga pala tayo boboto. My mistake.

LOL @ dolly 😀
