UNANIMOUS!

9 10 2012

VOTING UNANIMOUSLY, the Supreme Court of the Philippines issued a temporary restraining order on the controversial Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012! And Leila De Lima was like, “Ahmm… do I really have to follow that?”


Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago says the Cybercrime Law is “unconstitutional.” But Justice Secretary Leila De Lima insists it is “constitutional.” Do you still remember when Leila De Lima was out there defending fundamental human rights like free speech? Me neither.

The good news is the Supreme Court has voted unanimously to stop the implementation of the Cybercrime Law. The bad news is the High Court has yet to issue a TRO on Tito Sotto’s never-ending “Ako ang favorite whipping boy… ” rant.

It was a unanimous vote by the magistrates of the Supreme Court. As long as they’re UNITED against the unconstitutional provisions of the Cybercrime Law, I really don’t care if they’re DIVIDED during flag ceremonies. Thank you Supreme Court!

TRO on the Cybercrime Law: Reactions


“Our missiles is easy to reached your mainland Padre Faura. We warn your Supreme Court of Manila!”
~Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un (North Korea)

“Last day, I happy because I win election. Today, I lonely because court okay speaking freedom in Philippines. I disappoint. Very disappoint.”
~President Hugo Chavez (Venezuela)

“You Pilipinos unfair in Sotto. Sotto correct every time. Sotto right against whip boy. I big pity whip boy. TRO can giant blow in fight opposite cyberspaced opinions. Very bad rule in your Supreme Court.”
~President Hu Jintao (China)

“Sad day in future of Philippinos government. You speak negative, you free. You write anti, you free. You tweet criticize, you free. You unlike work politicians, you free. You free is bad to country. I sentence Justices must die in stone! Stone justices, stone!”
~President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iran)

“Que horror! Wrong decision. Korte Suprema afraid of people. Government can fight Korte Suprema. Freedom not always right. Freedom not always help economy. Wrong decision. TRO was devil. Devil in high degrees.”
~Fidel Castro (Cuba)

“We admire the justices of the Supreme Court. The magistrates are cerebral unlike the lawyers from La Salle and Ateneo who are intellectual pretenders and interlopers!”
~The Varsitarian, Official student publication, The Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas, The Catholic University of the Philippines


“I will always respect the legal processes that are issued by the court.”
~President Noynoy Aquino

“I will always respect the legal processes that are issued by the court, too.”
~Tito Sotto, comedian/politician

In Other News
In a scathing anti-RH Bill editorial, UST’s official student publication, The Varsitarian hit Ateneo and La Salle professors who were supportive of the bill calling them “intellectual pretenders.” The Atenean and La Sallian professors retaliated by proofreading the article.

Fired!
Reports say 15 nurses were dismissed for ‘liking’ a Facebook status of a colleague who criticized the management of the Taguig-Pateros City District Hospital. The Taguig City administrator denied the allegation and insisted that the nurses were fired for “disregard of authority,” “disobedience,” and for rejecting his Facebook friend request repeatedly.

Penis Size
According to a recent study, Congolese have the longest manhood while Indians, Chinese, Thais, and North/South Koreans have the shortest. The study didn’t cover the Philippines… much to the relief of Filipinos.

Quote of the Weak
“I withdrew it, alam mo kung bakit, kasi gusto rin ni Noynoy (President Aquino) ang libel kaya winidraw ko.”
~Sen. Tito Sotto on his bill seeking to junk the Libel Law

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Applause and plaudits to those who used their voice to defend freedom of speech, and who were not cowed into silence (PH included)

Shame on those senators who showed incompetence in the first instance, and then hypocricy/cowardice by claiming no responsibilty

Disgrace on p-noy for prioritising and defending the bill, and not even being prepared to listen to his bosses. His card/agenda is clearly marked.

Power to the people

Only wanting to hear ‘good news’ is not the trait of a leader or reformist, or someone who can handle problems.
Suggest govt starts listening.

HAHAHA. There are only 2 SC justices from UST and 4 from Ateneo (6, if you count the 2 who took up their pre-law at AdMU) ;-p

The controversial status on Facebook was last August, so hindi naman covered sa RA 10175. Justice for the 15 nurses of Taguig District Hospital.

Victory screech for the bloggers. Think before you vote or sign, Congress.

Bukas, October 11, the RH bill will be decided upon a basketball game in UAAP’s basketball finals for men (Ateneo v UST). Take your pick!
If Ateneo wins, the RH bill is to go. Kung USTe ka naman, delay na naman!

Let me just share a great bill-in-the making idea of Sen Guingona: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=420996091289295&set=a.111452745576966.16292.103868143002093&type=1&theater … not a bad way to encourage participation; thus preventing another questionable bill to be passed into law.
