THE NATION ACCORDING TO NOYNOY

27 07 2010


PRESIDENT BENIGNO SIMEON ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III’s first State of the Nation Address is over. Now, can anyone please tell me how to get a job at the MWSS?

Aquino’s SONA
President Aquino delivered his first State of the Nation Address Monday. It was direct to the point. Like a missile, the SONA hit its target – located somewhere in Hong Kong.

President Aquino’s first ever State of the Nation Address was short and direct. No frills, no gimmicks, no fanfare, no land reform, no economic goals, no foreign policy.

Addressing the CPP-NPA-NDF, Aquino asked: “Handa na ba kayong maglaan ng kongkretong mungkahi, sa halip na pawang batikos lamang?” – to which extreme Leftist lawmakers replied, “Kapag ganun ang nangyari, eh hindi na kami ‘yon.”

The President also said, “Habang nagpapatuloy ang barilan, patuloy din ang pagkakagapos natin sa kahirapan.” And then he vowed to quit target shooting on weekends and promised to work instead.

There was one awkward moment TV cameras failed to catch during the SONA. When President Aquino said, “Creating jobs is foremost on our agenda,” the four Abads in government chorused, “Taaama!”

The President also vowed to “strengthen the Witness Protection Program” – by establishing partnership with the La Salle Brothers.

On Monday, President Aquino let loose some bombshells. Not sure if it shocked many Filipinos but when TV cameras focused on former First Ladies Imelda Marcos and Luisa Ejercito, their faces barely moved.

President Aquino’s 35-minute State of the Nation Address was interrupted 29 times by applause… and at least 3 times by Aquino waiting for the applause.


Speaking before members of both Houses of Congress, President Aquino vowed, “Sa administrasyon po natin, walang quota-quota, walang tongpats; ang pera ng taumbayan ay gagastusin para sa taumbayan lamang.” The congresspersons broke into applause… with the heaviest of hearts.

A day before Aquino’s State of the Nation Address, former president and now, Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo left for Hong Kong. As they say, flight is an indication of guilt.

Asked by the press if he was glad that his mother, former President Arroyo did not attend the SONA, Camarines Sur Rep. Dato Arroyo replied, “Okay lang. Kebs!” – to the delight of Prof. Danton Remoto who’s been looking for an ally in Congress.

Asked by the press if he was glad that his mother was not there to listen to President Aquino’s SONA, Camarines Sur Rep. Dato Arroyo curtly replied, “Okay lang. Kebs!” Last night, his wife Kakai Manotok-Arroyo wasn’t able to sleep well.

In other news…
Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile was re-elected president of the Senate. He got a total of 17 votes while his rival for the post, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano got only 3 votes. Cayetano’s votes came from Joker Arroyo, Pia Cayetano, and Sharon Cuneta.

Belmonte By A Landslide
Voted by at least 227 congressmen, Quezon City Rep. Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte scored a landslide victory against Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman for the Speakership of the House of Representatives. Belmonte’s win was “a walk in the pork.”

A total of 258 congressmen were present when the session opened at 10 am. In the race for House Speaker, Quezon City Rep. Sonny Belmonte got 227 votes while Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman got 29 votes. Surprisingly, Vetellano Acosta managed to get 2 votes.

Aside from Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who was in Hong Kong, and Cagayan Representative Florencio Vargas who passed away over the weekend, two other congressmen were absent when session opened at the Lower House: Ilocos Sur Rep. Ronald Singson, and Negros Occidental Rep. Julio ‘Jules’ Ledesma IV. One is a rich, alleged drug user who almost always gets away with it, and the other is Chavit’s son.

no angel,

dynamic ang militany groups na sinasabi mo. may ibat ibang organization within it. Ang bagong alyansang makabayan ay umbrella org ng mga orgs. may farmers group na kilusang magbubukid ng pilipinas, meron ding workers group na kilusang mayo uno- oo hindi sial mayayamang organisasyon pero may mga dedicated members sila, they can launch protests kahit singkong dulinglang ang badyet. bago pa nauso ang re-use and recycle ginagawa na nila yan. pero mas complex pa jan ang dynamics ng “militant groups”. meron din silang ibat ibang support groups. nariyan ang ibat ibang government workers union mula sa housing hanggang sa health. meron silang strong church base support. kahit ang philippine nurses association and some doctor groups sumasama sa kanila. heck pati abs-cbn workers union kasama nila. baka ikaw na nga lang ang hindi kasama. so i hope that your query ay isang inosenteng tanong at hindi para i malign sila. ako ay kabahagi ng “militant groups” na sinasabi mo, oo may real job ako as a nurse ng isang government specialized hospital, but i chose to side with the people and thier movement kaya ako “militante”. at OO, nag aambag kami ng aming mga sahod (usually ang aming hazard pay that amounts to 20% of our sahod iniaambag namin pag may pagkilos) demonize us hanggang gusto ninyo, tuloy lang kami sa paglilingkod at pakikibaka. sa kahuli hulihan, makikita kung sino ba ang relevant sa dalawa ang “militanteng” kilusan o ikaw, kayo kayo na mga nangungutya.

p.s. i know its a joke at alam kong sobrang patol na ako perp mr heckler, you might wanna check our People’s health agenda- is our nine point suggestion for aquino. pinagtulong tulungan po ito nga ibat ibang health orgs like the health alliance for democracy, alliance of health workers, community medicine foundation, council for health and development etc.

At yung mga inaambag nyo para sa mga kilusan ninyo, di ba ninyo kayang gamitin yan para mag-organize ng livelihood program para sa mga taong nakatira sa kalsada? Yung mga binabayad niyo sa mga reporter para mainterview kayo, mga propaganda budget niyo, di ba puedeng pampatayo niyo ng eskwelahan para sa mga depressed areas. Kahit paano, makakatulong yan sa gobyernong sinisisi niyo.

Anong silbi ng agenda nyo kung wala kayong ginagawa kundi ang mag sisigaw sa gitna ng kalsada?

Wag nyo sasabihing karapatan ng taumbayan ang iniisip nyo dahil kahit pag bali baligtarin nyo pa ang mundo lahat ng naupo sa pwesto para sainyo walang ginawang tama.

Pati ang mga simpleng tao na pumapasok sa trabaho para kumita ng kakarampot na kita ay naaabala dahil sainyo.

Tanungin nyo ang sarili nyo kung ano ang maitutulong nyo sa bayan hindi yung puro kayo ngalngal ng ngalngal.

*planting trees four times a year is good, but if we dont protest the use of coal, o destructive mining what difference can those pittyful trees make?

doing charity work is commendable, but we cannot always rely on spontaneous charity to feed the poor, we need to solve the question on why there are poor, and why people go hungry.

– it might not be that big a difference but it surely is way more productive than staying out on the streets shouting.

“doing charity work is commendable, but we cannot always rely on spontaneous charity to feed the poor, we need to solve the question on why there are poor, and why people go hungry. ”
– will rallying solve your questions? will it feed the hungry?

“i would suggest that you read your constitution article 4. the bill of rights clearly states the freedom of association and assemblly, bakit kaya ito ginagarantiyahan ng konstitisyon?”
– no one’s questioning that. if only you can bring it to the proper forum. then, go ahead. but it’s not a sight to behold to see the same people, screaming, complaining out on the streets over and over again – with no end in sight. have you ever thought of bringing your group to pasig river? siguro, if those thousands of protesters will help out clean the river and that scene being shown on tv, kahit ako, kukuha ng tiket at sasama sa inyo. just act everything out. the time to complain is gone. kahit sibuyas, no matter how ‘pittyful” – itanim nyo na. ngayon. just that. hindi na kailangang nasa article yan o dapat sabihin pa ng bishop. gawin nyo lang. wala pang naaabalang iba.

I will still push for genuine agrarian reform and national industrialization. i will continue to support the cause to eliminate abuse and violence against women. continue our advocacy to mend the devides caused by religion by promoting ecumenism and tolerance.I will still oppose the cinstruction of large dams and the displacement of our indigenous people. yes i will join efforts to raise the sallaries of my fellow health workers and all workers too. and yes as an active member of kalikasan-pne and allied orgs like the eco-waste coalition and health care without harm, i will still join coastal clean-ups and disater management trainings in urban and rural areas.

@hikatalomato: dont pretend that you know the movement, you’re a frog inside a well gazing up in your little hole.hahaha red baiters never win.

@melys; poverty is never beautiful melly, if there is one thing that is not”a sight to behold”, that is extreme poverty. i did not mention anything about rallies being the be all-end all solution to that. what we do is empower the people to engage the structures of the state to act on thier problem, sure you will say” but the government cannot answer all your problems”. yes thats true but the state can mitigate people’s suffering by reviewing their policies. on debt payment, on privitization, on;land reform.on taxation. etc. thats where protests come in. collectively engaging the system to.. say voice out our oppostion to VAT.

Di ba’t mas mabuti kung may inilahad na goals si Noynoy at ipapakita nyang matutupad nya ang mga ito? Hindi naman kolorete at palamuti lamang ang pagsabi ng magagandang hangarin para sa bansa. Sa dami ng problema, masarap naman marinig ng ordinaryong mamamayan na may mga totoong plano at hakbang para mabigyan lunas ang mga ito.

Kung ang paniwala mo ay parehas lamang si PNoy at Gloria, malamang ay tama ka na dapat hindi siya naglabas ng policies at goals sa nakaraang SONA. Tunay na wala na tayong pag-asa. Dapat ay ikalungkot mo yan, kabayan.

Kung ang kaparehas ng paniwala mo naman ay ang paniwala ng milyon milyong mga Pilipino na si PNoy nga ang tagapagligtas at sugo ng spiritual na mundo, malamang ay kahit anong kasamaan ay kaya nyang sugpuin. Siya ay mananalo sa kanyang taglay na kapangyarihan.

I agree that Pnoy’s first SONA was short, direct to the point and lacked in details. However these were factual, which was the most important. Kahit ano pa sabihin ng mga dating ex-cab sec ni Arroyo on how innacurate ang binigay na info because obviously both the latter and incumbent government managers have different POV over the previous policies and how the incumbent see it fit.

So anyway, it was a 35 minute speech which I think focused on 5 immidiate problems of the nation. One of which is the lack of funds to spend for the remainder of the calendar year, especially the calamity fund. It’s basically setting the expectations of everyone on the current state of funds para di po kayo magulat kung kukulangin sa pang gastos. He stated that they will try to be creative in how to spend or seek additional funds for incidental expenses.

As for those who are looking for foreign policies, economic plans….IMO before even looking for solutions for those its much better to take care of the fundamental problems first then focus on those other matters after. May magandang foreign at economic policy kang sinasabi sa SONA..patuloy naman ang corruption..e di parang wala din.

I was working with the government before. Siguro mga twenty years na mula nang umalis ako dahil bukod sa mababa talaga ang suweldo, bumubulaga sa mukha namin ‘yung mga katiwaliang hindi namin malabanan dahil sa tingin namin noon ay parang normal lamang. Nakita ko ito nang ako nga ay lumabas at makita ang kalagayan at maranasan ang katulad ng kalagayan ng ating mga kababayan like looking for a job with no opportunity at all kaya nag-abroad na lang ako.

Almost twenty years na rin ako dito ngayon sa disyerto ng Saudi Arabia and everytime I go home for vacation, mas lalong dinudurog ang puso ko sa nakikitang kahirapan ng ating mga kababayan, kasama na rin dito ang aking mga kamag-anakan pati na rin ang aking pamilya sa kabila ng pagkakaroon ko ng trabaho dito sa ibayong dagat.

Ang hinahanap nating suweldo ng mga nasa pamahalaan, partikular na ‘yung mga board members ng government corporations ay ‘yung dapat na tama lamang at hindi naman agrabyado ang mga nasa ibaba. Lumabalabas kasing ginagawa nilang bakang gatasan ang gobyerno, eh.

Hindi ko alam kung bakit hirap na hirap intindihin ng ilan ang mga sinasabi ni Noynoy. Dahil kaya ang dami na nating preconceived notions? Baka naman marami ang naniniwala na papalpak siya kasi: panot siya, tulo laway siya, kuya siya ni Kris, binata siya, baduy manamit, nagyoyosi siya, part owner ng Hacienda Luisita, mahilig sa Coke at chicharong bulaklak…etc.

Para sa akin, malinaw ang mga mensahe ni Noynoy. Halimbawa:

Sa inauguration speech, ang sinabi ni Noynoy ay: The sovereign will of the people should prevail…translated into: “kayo ang boss ko!” “Bawal ang wang wang, ang counterflow…” “Command responsibility does not end with me because I am accountable to the people.”

Sa SONA naman, ang sinabi lang niya ay: The country is close to bankruptcy (brought about by corruption and mismanagement). We have acute problems to fix.
We need money to attend to those problems. We, therefore, need to raise funds ( by, for example, leasing the current navy headquarters…by pushing for government-private sector partnerships, by identifying where our money went to and find out if we still can recover some). Kaya nga binabawi yung pinamigay na calamity fund ni Gloria sa hindi naman nasalantang Pampanga. Maliwanag ang sinasabi niya: First things first. Tatlong linggo pa lang naman si Noynoy sa puesto, eh!

Napakaliwanag naman ang context: Si Noynoy, as commander-in-chief of the armed forces, o as president of the Philippines ay accountable o sumusunod sa will of the people. Hindi siya naghahari-harian. Hindi siya yung tulad ni Erap na nagsabing: Para que pa at nag-presidente tayo…weather weather lang. O ni GMA na dahil presidente ay walang habas na winarat ang ating mga institution, i.e. executive priviledge, con ass, bribery, election cheating, wanton spending sa foreign trips, etc. …all of those she thought was her birthright by virtue of her being president.

Minsan lang nangyari yan dito sa Pilipinas, noong panahon ng mga Amerikano. Sabi ng Presidente nilang si McKinley, kaya raw primitive ang way of life ng mga Filipino ay dahil na rin sa atin, dahil lahi daw tayo ng mga alipin (slaves), mga Nigger daw tayo, konti lang ang lamang sa mga unggoy o mababang klase ng human being.

Normally I would have looked for a SONA that satisfies the SMART format in setting goals/objectives (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, REalistic, Timebound) as maybe most people with management backgrounds will expect…but the majority of the electorate are not managers, most of them are ordinary people who don’t appreciate high falluting, jargonistic, powerpoint presentations, complete with statistics, details of time lines, action plans, etc, etc..that economists (like Gloria) would like to regal everybody. We would look for this kind of expertise as we like to pretend we’re that intelligent and talk management…we like to much to pretend we’re smart that we allow ourselves to be hoodwinked with the figures…
The ordinary pinoy doesn’t appreciate all that, he just wants to know “kung nagkalokohan na ba talaga?” How much money we have on hand, how much do we need to live on, can we afford to spend for needs or wants? What good is a “road map” of sorts when all these infrastructure projects are being used as excuses to steal money from the government?
The prerequisite for a good manager should be integrity and decency foremost – as how are we supposed to know that the budget he’s proposing and getting is really spent properly?
Pnoy’s message, if you read between the lines, was mostly for the congressmen, senators, governors, mayors, etc., that this time around they should use the budget for its intended purpose.
We know that the president is close to powerless if he can’t dangle money over the Filipino lawmakers, he will not get any support, its a given fact of life in Philippine politics, these people are used to their pork and will fight tooth and nail to keep them.
The SONA’s message and even Pnoy’s wangwang initiative, is to appeal to these lawmakers for decency and an appeal for all the Filipinos to rally behind this call for austerity. The lawmakers must accept any austerity measures that will be initiated, they must take some cuts in their pork barrel is need be – as they are using their constituents as the main reason they cannot accept reduced pork barrels, Pnoy has appealed straight to the constituents also.
We can only be disappointed if we depend on others too much for our needs, dreams, aspirations, if we depend on others to fulfill these for us we will definitely be disappointed as people have a tendency to let us down. We must learn to be self reliant, to rise above our perceived limitations and achieve.
Its right not to have too high expectations on our leaders, we must have high expectations on OURSELVES and work for it. If we dream big, we can achieve big! Personally, if we want financial independence, a new car, a house, a big LCD TV, anything is possible, but we have to put some effort and time, not to mention – motivation to succeed.
If we have very low expectations form our leaders, its okay, as long as we have high expectations for ourselves, then we’ll be going somewhere…

uuyy tomador, i disagree with you, lagi naman hahaha

hindi pwede yung parang first thing first, hindi kaya tayo
aabutan ng siyam-siyam?

what for pa ang mga cabinet secretaries sa iba’t ibang
agencia, they are there so that they can function
simultaneously, kailangan lang talaga mahusay na captain
of the ship si noynoy at yan ang dapat masubaybayan,
kung saan nya dadalhin ang sambayanan…

Tomador, Lawrence Patola — yang mga pinaliliwanag ninyo actually ay alam naman ng mga self-made critics na puro dada diyan. Alam mo naman marami sa atin, ang prinsipiyo, “basta di kita binoto at nanalo ka, humanda ka at pati mga langaw na naglipana sa basurahan mo ipipintas ko sa iyo. at wag na wag kang matatalisod man lang. Kundi, you’ll never hear the end of it.” Sasabihin pa ng mga yan na…”anooo? Tanga! Palibhasa panot ka! Wala ka bang gagawin sa mga problem naming sang damakmak?” Kahit 3 weeks pa lang yung mama. Ganyan talaga! Expected na yan ng kung sinong mamumuno from non-supporters. Ya lang sorry na lang sila kasi mukhang focused naman ang presidente sa mga problem natin. Small small muna baga at makararating din tayo sa mas malalaki later. At dahil di naman sila in the loop, pintas at dada lang muna imbes na tumulong. Para dun sa mga masyadong mainipin diyan na kala mo naman modelong ng katalinuhan, kung wala sa bokabularyo niyo ang cooperation at sense of nationhood e, humanap na kayo ng inyong susuportahan ngayon pa lang, in time for the next presidential election para matupad na rin ang mga pangarap niyo, K? Kasi kahit ano namang paliwanag e di niyo pakikinggan, para que pa? (psst..pero sa atin-atin lang ha? karamihan diyan sa mga bumabatikos na iyan deep inside their hearts, they know that P-noy is sincere, means well and most of all, may integridad. pero syempre la pa silang lakas ng loob na aminin yan sa ngayon.)

@senior60 — mukhang pinakinggan naman ang saloobin mo. Inaayos na po ang pamimigay ng mga sobrang bigas sa mga nangangailangan.

Teka, asan na ba si former sec. Yap? Di ba nung nagpainterview siya kali-kaliwa after the SONA, kesyo wala daw over-importation of rice? Wala raw nabubulok na bigas? Bakit di niya i-refute yan ngayon? Eto pa, baka di mo rin alam Mr. Yap — (kasi mukhang ikaw na lang ang di nakakaalam) muntik ng mapagtakpan yang baho ng NFA. Bakit kamo? In-ofer yang mga excess na sacks of rise sa lahat ng mga NFA employees as incentive, 1 sack of rice each retroactive ng Jan 2010. Nagkahulihan lang, kundi, lalabas pang kulang ang supply sa dami ng ilalabas. Marunong talaga ang Diyos.

At eto pa, Mr. Yap — anong ginawa mo sa donation ng US (from Georgia, specifically) to develop Hershey peanuts? Di ba in-appropriate mo sa bayan mo sa Bohol at dun mo kamo gagamitin ang pondo? Bottomline: Walang peanut-peanut na nangyari sa Bohol o kung saan mang panig ng Pinas. Nawala na rin ang pondo. Pero nanalo ka as Bohol rep. Ano kaya ibig sabihin niyan?

Iniimbestigahan na po ito, mga kababayan. Di pa lang po nilalabas ang issue na ito na pinakakatago-tago up to now and you, PH bloggers are fortunate to know this first. Kaya dahan-dahan po ang iba diyan sa pagsasabi na walang ginagawa ang P-noy at baka unti-unti rin kayong mapahiya (like Yap) in the end. We have a serious president, whether you like it or not.

The original draft of PNoy”s SONA was “Handa na ba kayong maglaan ng kongkretong mungkahi, sa halip na pawang batikos lamang? Ako hindi pa. Kaya magtiis ka muna PGMA at marami pang batikos ang maririnig mo.”

maliban sa mga fireworks na expose’ ni Noynoy, walang kwenta at nakakatakot pa nga ang SONA ni PNOY, biruin mo para sa kanya masama ang subsidyo ng gubyerno para sa kuryente at mrt? oo masama yung ginawa ni GMA na ginamit yung patronage politics at pinag kakitaan yung mga subsidies na yun pero Subsidies per se is a government obligation, dapat naman talagang tumulong ang gubyerno para mapagaan ang mga binabalikat ng taumbayan. pero sabi ni noynoy ito’y pagtatangka na :Bilhin ang ating Pagmamahal? BS! sabi pa nya: Pera na naging bato pa; mukhang pera ang powtik! Yung automatik appropriation sa pagbabayad utang na kumakain ng almost 50% ng national budget taun taun ni hindi binanggit.

Ang teorya ko, pinapasakay lang tayo ng mga handlers ni aquino para sa mga piece meal na reforms, yung makanti lang si gma ng konti nagpapalakpakan na tayo.. pero yung mga meaningful reforms yung talagang may impact na reporma at par sa malaking mandato na binigay sa kanya ng taumbayan BOKYA!

What puzzles me is that Negros Occidental Rep. Julio ‘Jules’ Ledesma IV was absent, but her wife Assunta de Rossi was there, dressed fashionably in a yellow gown. Was she there to represent her Representative husband? WTF?!

And comment lang sa mga against sa posts ni PH, bawal ang walang sense of humor dito. Kung wala na nga kayong sense, wala pa kayong humor, sana naglaslas na lang kayo ng pulso sa pamamagitan ng toothbrush.

parang nalihis yata landas mo, ang pinag-uusapan
dito is not for ourselves but for the whole of the
philippine archipelago…

kaya, to the highest level ang ating expectations
from noynoy, siya naman kasi ang nangako na dalhin
ang lahat sa tama at matuwid na landas…

sana, sana nga magtagumpay sya…

samantala, we will keep on ‘attacking’ in the guise of
heckling if may mga kapalpakan along the way, pang

Bakit ba naghihinanakit mga taga-MWSS. Ngayon kasi nadiskubre mga natatanggap nila ganon na lang ba?

Keep quiet lang sila noon. Wow, pano naman kami!

And by the way, siempre mga ibang sangay sa pamahalaan. Well, super ingatan niyo na malaman ng media ang mga natatanggap niyo ha? Kasi baka ma-media din kayo.

Para sa simpleng mamamayan, Wow, Grabe, Ano BA Yan, Talaga? ang masasabi at ma-shock talaga.

DAPAT LAHAT NG AGENCIA NG PAMAHALAAN suriin din ng malaman, baka naman hindi lang MWSS ang ganyan.

how sure are we that just because noynoy is the president, e walang mawawaldas na tax ng mga naghihirap sa pagtatarabahong karaniwang mamamayan na tulad natin? I beg to disagree. that culture of corruption will continue because of what we now call as local government units. the heads of these LGUs will make sure that their cut in the IRA remains the same, if not bigger, whether or not their president is as clean as noynoy. 😦

Actually the SONA of the President of the Philippines is good, And I believe that his administration is good to but I think the leftist are expecting more from him, and in his administration so far I think he accomplished in terms of saving money in the government and this will benefit the Filipinos. And also he said that he build some houses for the soldiers and policeman And I think its only paid for only 200 pesos per month, well that’s a really good help for them right? because some of them really need homes. So another opinion here is that the leftist need to wait more because its only been a year in his administration and their are so many wrong errors that he is making decisions of. Don’t be such a stubborn Filipinos guys, Be a discipline and responsible ones, because being responsible and discipline Filipino will really help our country.
