According to a survey conducted by Transparency International, only 52 percent of Filipinos believe that legislators are corrupt. To the 48 percent, you have no idea!

Nearly 4 in 10 Filipinos think corruption in the Philippines went down in the past two years. President Aquino’s speechwriters reacted, “Pwede nang pang-SONA ‘yan.”

SONA 2013
The House of Representatives is now busy preparing for President Aquino’s State of the Nation Address on July 22. Repairs and repainting have been made. Security will be very tight in Batasan. Signage have been put in place: No protest rallies; No unruly hecklers; No suicide attempts.

Oral Arguments
In his opening remark before the Supreme Court, RH Law petitioner Francisco ‘Kit’ Tatad asked, “Have we become a democracy only to submit to state supervision and control?” And ‘Martial Law’ was like, “Senti ka na naman friend!”

Former senator Kit Tatad, who argued for the petitioners, described the RH Law as “genocide.”
“Dear Mr. Tatad,
Hiyang-hiya naman ako sa inyo.”
– Sincerely,
Darfur

Demolition
Parañaque Rep. Gustavo Tambunting proposed a bill that would require government men to follow certain protocols in carrying out demolitions to prevent violence. The proposed bill is called “existent.”

Traffic
To ease traffic congestion in the metro especially on EDSA, a four-day work week was proposed by Atty. Romulo Macalintal. Yes, that’s Romy Macalintal – the election lawyer. Let’s vote on his proposal.

Malacañang has rejected lawyer Romulo Macalintal’s proposed four-day work week – although rumors have it the President has been following that schedule for three years now.

Earthquake
Phivolcs Director Renato Solidum says based on historical records, a very strong earthquake may hit Metro Manila within this lifetime. It may shock motorists but EDSA will probably move.

1Single Again
George Clooney and his girlfriend of two years, Stacy Keibler have called it quits. Clooney is single again. He can’t seem to find his true love. He should try politics and run for president.

Dwight Coward
Dwight Howard has left the Los Angeles Lakers. He transferred to the Houston Rockets – not to TV5 as rumored earlier.

Imelda
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos is 84 years old. The other night, she told GMA News TV that she had her first stem cell treatment in 1971. The secret is out! It’s not formalin.
