ONE DOWN

IT’S BEEN A YEAR since voters decided to elect the candidate who would bring change.
A leader who is strong.
A leader who will defend the poor and the oppressed.
A leader who’s unafraid. A leader who’s got balls.
Yes, it’s been a year. So happy 1st year in office…
Sara Duterte!

Million Dollar Baby
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte punched a Davao RTC Branch 15 sheriff who was serving a demolition order on Friday. Duterte won by unanimous decision… in social networking sites.

For refusing to delay for two more hours the demolition of shanties in Agdao district, court sheriff Abe Andres was punched on the face by Mayor Sara Duterte. The sheriff sustained a cut, a black eye, and a bruised ego.

Television footage showed Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte landed 3 out of 3 punches (100%) while Sheriff Andres landed in the hospital.

Netizens are comparing Mayor Sarah Duterte to Cong. Manny Pacquiao. But that’s unfair. Pacquiao has never won a fight in 10 seconds.

Netizens say Mayor Sarah Duterte is the new Manny Pacquiao. That’s completely untrue mainly because everytime Pacman wins a fight, he apologizes to his opponent.

Court sheriff Abe Andres who was serving a demolition order inside a contested property in Davao’s Agdao district was punched at least three times on his face by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. Hell hath no fury like a Duterte scorned.

Last Thursday, June 30, Sunstar Davao quoted Mayor Sara Duterte as saying that chess and martial arts would be the “focus sports” of Davao City. Not anymore.

In Other News…
To mark his first year in office Thursday, June 30, President Aquino delivered his Ulat sa Bayan, otherwise known as ‘nothing that we didn’t read in the newspapers.’

Did you see the crowd at Philsports Arena? For a moment, I thought it was a prayer rally especially during that part in which President Aquino started talking about the devil that was the Arroyo government.

Marking the first anniversary of his administration, President Aquino delivered a well-applauded speech. Probably one of his best election campaign pitches ever.

In his Ulat sa Bayan, the President revealed anomalies in the PNCC, PCSO, and the NFA. The most surprising thing about that speech? There was no mention of his lovelife. (How could you!?)

CONGRATULATIONS President Aquino! You have successfully completed Level 1 of your presidency. Five more levels to go and you’re done. Good luck!

  1. nice review of fight of the week.

    i guess butch sara using fists is progress compared to her gun toting father, who must have posters of john wayne in his bedroom.
    never mind the spanish inquisition, beware the davao death squad.
    southern barbarians. too much sun, too little work.

  2. P-noy talks of his cabinet officials as having ‘ self-actualisation’ which is the top level in maslows hierachy of needs.

    I think more appropriate is a hierachy of greed which i characterise as;
    Self-obsessesion
    Self-indulgent
    Self-serving
    Self-promoting
    Self-opinionated
    Self-promulgating.

    Spin but no strategy
    Slogans but no substance

    1 year down but 5 more years of the same.

    P-noy rating

    Leadership. 4
    Campaign promises. 3
    Decision making. 3
    Communication. 3
    Honesty. 7
    International relations. 5
    Economy. 5
    Achievements. 4
    Job creation. 4
    Future potential/trust 4

    Total. 42/100
    And that is generous.

    Failed to live up to expectations or his own promises and commitments.

    Out of his depth, unable to relate to or connect with people on a human or emotional level. Risk averse sticking to his routines and comfort zone and not introducing new ideas or new blood. Kkk rules ok.
    No charisma or gravitas. Not respected in international community.
    Still acting as puppet for cojuangco-aquino family interests.
    Poor work ethic.

  3. if that lady mayor was in the US she would have been handcuffed in a second for assault. You’d think she did that out of her love for the poor whose homes would be demolished. I highly doubt it. She was there to protect her voting turf. Philippine politics is all about power, money and lawlessness. The sheriff was just doing what the courts told him to do. What she did wasn’t cute, and not a laughing matter.

      Huh. I do say you have no idea what you’re talking about.

      Try asking Davaoenos, her constituents, what they think of the act and of their mayor in general. Verify your conclusion.

      Incidentally, there is no scheduled “time” when courts tell a sheriff when to execute a demolition order. He could have waited another 2 hours. That he was so dead set on implementing the order ASAP smells fishy to anyone who’s ever done any business with the courts.

  4. After one year, Pnoy is still in expose and campaign mode. Nothing gets done, not one case has been filed against GMA and other perpetrators of such anomalies. He is thinking that by merely exposing these anomalies, he has achieved his purpose, no need to hail the criminals in court.

  5. rebuilding the philippines in all its aspects including morality will be more difficult than building the great wall of china. it can not be done in 1 year not even ten years. the eroded cultural values is so pervasive and deep. it has infected the innermost core of the filipino soul. if something has to change, it has to include that ”core’! otherwise, it will be superficial. i think that our current leadership has to work harder and make decisions that are not based on friendship or blood ties alone. but on the other hand, if you will become the leader, you will surround yourself with people that you can trust at the same time ethical. but even good people change too. they can dazzled by money. they can change from good to bad. but tell me, do you like gloria better? or can you trust villar? erap again? i would suggest that we keep our vigilance. but let us support the current leadership. the reason why it is not successful is: we, the people continue to be ‘corrupt’ and dishonest. yes, down to the barangay level. it is always blame game. we have to do our share. let us begin examining conscience. let us move and do our share. nagtatapon ka pa ba ng plastic na basura sa daan? sumusunod ka ba sa batas trapiko? naglalagay ka ba? isinusumbong mo ba ang mga gumagawa ng kalokohan kahit kamag-anak o kaibigan mo? at napakarami pang tanong kasi malala ang sakit natin. at sa pang huli, patas ka ba sa iyong pag huhusga? baka naman hindi ka lang naambunan ng biyaya?

    1. FVR appointed people to his cabinet such as C. Habito whom he never knew personally bur were the best and the the brightest in their fields. The Filipinos deserve the best of their kind and not people who merely invested heavily in the campaign and whom the President knows from way back. The Filipinos are great people and there is nothing wrong with them. They should not be blamed by the bankruptcy of the talent and leadership of this administration.

    2. I agree most of what you said, but you forgot the leader and follower relationship, the leader needs to give more reasons why should the people follow him instead of followers defending and asking the people to follow the leader.

      Until now, its hard for me to comprehend the decisions and behavior of this administration. The most disturbing is buying a porsche, its insensitive, tasteless decision he made, number of questions piles up with same tasteless answers coming from him and malacanan. And we ask ourselves “how can we follow a leader like that?” my answer is “I will not!” and ill leave your answer to yours alone. I guess thats one of the core values you are talking about? and i will not guess, after what he said and done, if its superficial or not? Clearly not the leader whom i like to follow but i will remain a good citizen of our country.

      “There are nuances of leadership for a people to respect and follow their leaders, and most of the time, these are not about material things and sweet promises. Leaders after all, are looked up to for their vision, guidance, and reassuring presence.”

      “This was what was lost on President Benigno C. Aquino III when he arrived to visit the flood victims of Cotabato City more than two weeks after tens of thousands of evacuees have already been suffering from the floods. Thus, by the time he arrived, the people no longer saw in him the leader they believed in. No wonder both the Cotabato city mayor and the people did not have anything good to say about his visit. Apparently, still clueless about the nuances of leadership, Malacañang attacked the Cotabato city mayor instead and enumerated what has already been given – including the heavy equipment that was removing the water hyacinths from Rio Grande de Mindanao coursed through the Department of Public Works and Highways, and the sacks of rice coursed through the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

      Much like a father making up for his absence by delivering all that a child wants, when the child only needs his presence.”

    1. “Earlier on, City Mayor Sara Z. Duterte had already made it clear that she cannot do anything about the demolition since it was a court order and that it had to be implemented. She’s a lawyer, and she knows that is how the law works. But all she was asking for was to be there. Thus, she was trying to ask for just two hours, just to take on the heat of a court-ordered demolition. The court sheriff didn’t see wisdom in that; he simply has to do his job and that is to serve the demolition order and have it implemented. As the mayor anticipated, a riot erupted before she arrived.

      And that is what is lost in a lot of bureaucrats: the understanding that most of the time, the people, especially the masses, would just want their leader to be there when the worst hits them.”

        from davao follow the law because they are afraid

      1. Wonder of wonders! When transplanted abroad, we Filipinos usually are the best in what we do. I think it’s because our efforts are amply rewarded and the playing field is level. Back home, only the crooks get rewarded and they stake the odds in their favour. For example, have you heard of a Philippine mayor slapped with a speeding ticket? Not in your wildest dreams. In the country where I reside now, the prime minister was headlined when issued one. It may not mean that much to you, but for me it’s one of the reasons why I decided to stay.
