GMA and People Power
President Arroyo snubbed the celebration of the 22nd anniversary of People Power 1 at the People Power monument in Quezon City. That’s exactly the reason why this year’s celebration… was actually more meaningful.
GMA on Corruption
On the eve of the People Power I anniversary, President Arroyo spoke, “Maraming galit sa kurapsyon. Gayon din ako.” That’s the reason why she’s not been talking lately to the First Gentleman.
JDV to GMA: Resign!
Ousted House Speaker Jose De Venecia has joined calls for President Arroyo to step down. Those who care, taas ang kamay.
JDV to GMA: Resign! II
Former House Speaker Jose De Venecia has joined calls for President Arroyo to step down. De Venecia claimed he has given Mrs. Arroyo 100 days to start leading a moral revolution but she ignored him. But to be fair to Mrs. Arroyo, she’s not the only one who ignored him. Everyone did.
Erap to GMA: Resign!
After weeks of dilly-dallying, former president Joseph Estrada has finally joined calls for President Arroyo to resign. Isa ka pa!
Impeachment vs. GMA
Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel said, “If by July, GMA has not resigned, we will file an impeachment case against her.” Fellow solons who heard the threat smiled: they can smell the stench of Christmas in July. (Tawaran portion na naman!)
And the Oscar Goes To…
Diablo Cody won an Oscar for writing the script of the film Juno. Cody was an exotic dancer before today’s win. The exact opposite happened to our own Tessie Aquino-Oreta. She had to win a Senate seat first before she became a dancer.
And the Oscar Goes To… II
In Hollywood, an Oscar was given to a Diablo. Sus! Wala ‘yan! In the Philippines, it’s the presidency.
And the Oscar Goes To… III
Many Filipinos skipped the Edsa rites Monday and stayed home to watch the live telecast of the Oscars… curiously forgetting that joining the celebration would have placed them near some of the country’s best actors and actresses.
For those who missed the telecast of the Academy Awards, here’s the complete list of winners.
I was away for three days so here’s a bonus post:
