FAMILY AFFAIR

25 09 2012

SENATOR KOKO PIMENTEL guested on the comedy show ‘Gandang Gabi Vice’ last Sunday. The re-electionist senator sang a Billy Joel hit and gamely performed the latest dance craze – PSY’s hit single Oppa Gangnam Style Mo Bulok!

During the interview, Senator Koko Pimentel revealed that he’s a Math major in college. In fact he taught us a math lesson that evening: Popular TV Show + Song and Dance Number + 2013 Elections = Alam Na!

Ex-future Senator Joel
TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva has dropped his plan to run for senator next year. But the former party-list solon who ranked 24th–32nd in the latest SWS senatorial survey said, “Even if I was in the Top 12 Survey, it wouldn’t affect my decision.” And President Aquino was like, “LP’s decision!”

Dynasty
If recent surveys are any indication, starting next year, the Senate will have two Cayetanos, two Estradas, and two Enriles. And that’s too much!

Next year, there will be two Cayetanos, two Estradas, and two Enriles in the Senate. How do you explain such travesty to the little children?

The theme of the Philippine Senate starting next year is “Sama-Sama Sa Senado Pamilyang Pilipino.”

Cam Sur
One of Bicol’s political dynasties, the Villafuertes are still feuding. The senior Villafuerte wants to divide Camarines Sur; the junior Villafuerte wants to keep it intact. I didn’t know they own the province.

Pacquiao
Manny Pacquiao will be the official Congressional candidate in Sarangani of the United Nationalists Alliance or UNA next year. Pacquiao, who first ran as a Liberal in 2007, became a member of Gloria Arroyo’s Kampi in 2008, and later, pledged allegiance to Manny Villar’s Nacionalista Party for the 2010 polls. He then announced his plans to join President Aquino’s Liberal Party. Last April, he formally took his oath as a member of Vice President Binay’s PDP-Laban. Pacquiao is definitely channeling his inner Muhammad Ali. You know, “float like a butterfly.”

LP 2013
Have you seen the Liberal Party slate for next year’s 2013 midterm elections? It’s everything but Liberal!

Colegio San Agustin
Did you hear the news about the gun-toting incident at Colegio San Agustin? Here’s a backgrounder: Boy 1 repeatedly bullied Boy 2. Boy 2 thought he’s had enough, retaliated and stabbed Boy 1 with a pen. Then came the bully’s father, Allan Bantiles who stormed the school premises, confronted and slapped the 16-year-old bullying victim and pointed a .45 caliber at him. The incident happened last month but the police has yet to charge the suspect. In other news, Colegio San Agustin has just been declared “The Most Gun-Friendly School” in the metro. Congratulations!

Gun-toting suspect Allan Bantiles has declined to grant media interviews and refused to face journalists. Unless the journalist is 16-years-old.

SWS Survey
According to the latest Social Weather Stations survey, fewer Filipinos think that they are poor. Sus, gutom lang ‘yan.

Not Showing
Several groups have asked the government to ban the public exhibition of the controversial film “Innocence of Muslims,” which, they described as offensive. I hope they do the same thing to the movies of Mikey Arroyo and Manny Pacquiao.

Jesus!
According to reports, a fragment of a faded papyrus from the fourth century suggests Jesus Christ may have been married. And the best way to validate the claim is to gather first-hand information. Let’s ask Senator Enrile.

Quote of the Day
“Matapos ang buwang pagluhod sa pananalangin, pag-aayuno, at maging pakikipag-ugnayan ko sa aking kababayan, buong pagpapakumbabang nagdesisyon po ako na manatili sa gabinete ni Pangulong Aquino at ituloy ang pagsisilbi sa bayan.”
~TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva

Personal
Congratulations to the UP Pep Squad! You’ve made 8 happen! Woohoo!!!

Have a safe and productive week!

Nepotism rules, ok!

Nepotism from latin nepos = nephew

Examples – bam aquino, nephew of noynoy, cousin of president.
Nancy binay, daughter of vice president

Meaning – Giving plum jobs to incompetent relatives.

Basic principle of filipino politics.

Result – political elitism, social inequality, economic stagnation, widespread corruption

“Nepotism is the worst form of abuse of power and a major cause of corruption in governments. Its prevalence in 3rd world countries speaks for itself”

Election time!

No opposition
No mention – ever! of policies, plans, strategies
Jockeys riding 2 horses!
Average age of UNA leadership – over 75 ( their recent press conference looked like an awayday from the very old peoples home)
Banal tv ads
Airbrushed posters everywhere
Comelec backhanders
Same old, same old
And 8 more months of it – for some. My tour of duty is nearly over.
