PAGASA says we should expect cooler days ahead. Apparently, temperatures have dropped. In fact, if the numbers keep dropping, Grace Poe will catch up with it.
Reacting to Grace Poe’s surge in the latest survey, Binay defender and UNA interim president Toby Tiangco said, “We are truly happy for Grace because we are the true allies and supporters of her father, the late Fernando Poe Jr.” In response, FPJ was like, “Kung maka-namedrop naman ‘tong kumag na ‘to!”
In the latest Pulse Asia survey, DILG Sec. Mar Roxas has dropped to sixth place. From 13 percent in September, his rating fell to only 6 percent in November. Worse, online bashers say his rating wasn’t even wearing a helmet when it fell.
According to Pulse Asia’s latest survey, Vice President Binay suffered a very significant drop in his trust and approval ratings. Or as the Liberal Party calls it, “Christmas gift.”
The most notable and biggest drop for Vice President Binay came from Class E, considered to be the poorest of the poor: from 71 percent in September to 46 percent in November. Man does not live by cake alone.
Of the government’s top five officials, Vice President Binay registered the highest disapproval and distrust ratings. You know things are getting f*ckd up for Binay when even Frank Drilon is faring better in the trust department.
Vice President Binay is now the most distrusted top government official. Rumors say the level of distrust has gone so high, some recipients of Binay’s cakes are asking the delivery guy to taste it for them first.
Makati City Mayor Junjun Binay has canceled the annual New Year’s Eve countdown party along Ayala Avenue. The 30-million peso budget will be donated instead to local government units nationwide affected by Typhoon Ruby. That’s a big boost to those LGUs and an even bigger boost to Binay2016.
Preparations for the upcoming Papal visit are underway. The Vatican says Pope Francis wants to meet with a group of people who needs his prayers the most. Organizers plan to bring him to Batasan Complex.
In his recent regular weekly address at St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis declared that animals go to heaven. The statement brought consolation and relief to veterinarians, animal lovers, and congressmen.
On the occasion of International Human Rights Day, authorities say torture still happens in the Philippines. And it goes by its other name, “traffic.”
Quezon City will strictly limit the sale of fireworks to ensure public safety. Residents are not too happy. They fear that their New Year’s Eve celebration would be very much like the romance between their mayor, Herbert Bautista and Kris Aquino – “wala nang spark.”
Starlet Nathalie Hart a.k.a. Princess Snell drew flak from netizens for posting a photo on Instagram with the caption, “According to my dads lesson: If rape is inevitable, lay back and enjoy it! #ihavethebestadvicer #mvdadisthebest hahaha” The starlet has since apologized for the “irresponsible” rape post. She has yet to apologize though for raping basic grammar.
“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
“All other comments are irrelevant and frankly, reflect more on the people making them.”
