this morning i was able to catch a portion of Mayor Jejomar Binay and DILG Secretary Ronaldo Puno in Magandang Umaga Pilipinas -- debating on the issue of the police overkill during the what was supposed to be the forced eviction of Iloilo Governor Neil Tupas from the Iloilo Provincial Capitol a couple of days ago. though personally i thought the attack on the Iloilo Capitol was highly OA, listening to these two guys argue on who's evil and who's not in government just makes me want to plug the DVD and watch Titanic instead. i just know that all those with political ambitions will be jumping in on this issue and we will be flooded again with politicians and politician-wannabes doing what they do best - grandstanding and pulling ridiculous political stunts as if our lives did not depended on it. our lives, not theirs.

and then what little hope you have for this country will soon be crushed with the certainty that people like richard gomez thinking he is good enough for public office. kit writes a nice one on that, and i fully agree that there is no patriotism here - only greed and illusions of greatness.

that is why i think that entering public service should be like entering priesthood. those who want to be public servants should enter a seminary, live a monk-like life, shun the comfortable life and get this, get frigging high grades on all aspects of public service. please lang, bawal ang bobo.

now to make things even harder and the risks higher, have cameras and lapel mics every freaking where they go, ala Big Brother (but without the prize money). whether they grandstand or not, we be the judge of that.

that should make elections more interesting.

Indeed. Kaya pala mejo lumilinis na ang kalsada at marami rami na akong nakikitang kalendaryo at pabati ng "HAPPY Valentines Day" sa labas ng tahanan namin!

Hindi na ako magugulat kung may mga campaign ads ang mga tatakbo sa darating na halalan dito sa blog...

Or.. baka gumawa sila ng kanikanilang BLOGS para lang mangampaniya! hahah! =) What a great idea! =)

By the way, you can check out my books (in photos) here po.. =)

korek ka dyan sister...how i wish ganon sila katulad ng mga housemates! ^_^

ever wondered why do they wanted so much that freaking office that everyone from a showbiz personality to an unknown pretentious-husband-daw-ni-Kris Aquino is jumping in the political bandwagon? is it really public service or how much percentage would they get in every damned projects they would initiate in their respective city or province apart from the pork barrel each of them is entitled to?

i'm also irritated that the likes of GARCI, Honasan, etc. are still keen on running despite the issues hounding them...puhleeze
enough of these clowns! =)
