Mid 20’s

March 30th, 2011 No comments

After the (barely felt) holiday, I'm back and what a day. I'm in my - gasp for air - in my mid 20's. Now, Naga might not be so kind with 20 something people but it's kinda different elsewhere.
Last month, kasi, hinanapan ako ID while buying booze. I was like, do I look like I'm under 21 (pero pumapalakpak ang loob, ko, baby face lang kasi). Actually, the till person said I look like under 25 and he had to challenge that (hanep, ang taray). Tama naman s'ya I'm under 25 pero I'm over 21 so old enough to do what I want. So I digged into my pocket for my emergency (a.k.a old and forgotten) ID. Tiningtinan ako ng mga tao, iniisip alcoholic ang batang ito... kasi pinabakal Tequila eh dakul pa naman ito, tapos may Vodka at Kahlua pa (of course, pwede din iniisip nila sushal ang inuman ito, ahehe). Now, I'm not really an alcoholic despite my previous post. A party is a party lang.
But moving on, my age is a really a big number, right? Ibang ka age ko, millionaires na or nag papatalsik ng dictators (Tunisia and Egypt) eh ako what have I really done lately. I guess I'm not the only person in the world, who's got questions. Who feel like they are stagnating (drama-rama). A lot is going on for me I gotta say that. It's just that when I was like 16 I had another scenario in my mind. I thought may superpower na ako, or may family na o kaya famous something. ahehe.
Hay, start na ba ito ng mid,mid life crisis. C$&!. ahehe...

Death penalty in China

March 30th, 2011 No comments
Three Filipino citizens separately arrested in China and convicted of drug trafficking will be meted the death penalty today. Elizabeth Batain, 38, Ramon Credo, 42, and Sally Villanueva, 33 will face China's harsh punishment for drug trafficking.Unfortunately, the Philippine government cannot intervene in the judicial process of a sovereign state. And worse, the lessons implied by the fate of these Filipinos reflect the state of poverty of our countrymen, the extent of drug syndicates' operations in and out of the country, and the quality of protection our government provides for the Filipino people.Apalling dimensions of poverty continue to haunt our people, both in the urban and rural areas. Lack of food, shelter, education, and livelihood are some of the most common experiences. In this situation, hundreds of thousands Filipinos have opted to work abroad in the hope of a better life. Unfortunately, it is also at this point when predators such as trafficking syndicates descend upon our impoverished people. And so many of our poor people indeed become captive preys, devoured and torn to pieces.At the same time, we realize the extent of drug abuse problem in this situation. It is not a problem that is localized in the Philippines. It goes beyond borders. In fact some drug syndicates may even parallel perhaps the leading transnational corporations in the scope and extent of their operations. It is not also a problem that is concentrated on one sector. It transcends social stratification. And even the government is affected when you have a lawmaker caught overseas with illegal drugs!It is not surprising then that "narco-politics" and even the prospects of a "narco-state" is becoming a very clear, alarming scenario for the Philippines. The fate of Credo, Batain, and Villanueva reflects the quality of protection the government provide our citizens. In the Philippines, we cannot prevent drug syndicates from smuggling drug mules out thru our airports and sea ports. And when the Filipino citizens exploited by these syndicates are trapped in other countries, we go begging for mercy! When will this cruel cycle end? How many more will have to die in foreign soil before we become more competent in protecting our citizens?

Impeachment Trial

March 29th, 2011 No comments
The Senate again! This time acting as a tribunal to decide on the impeachment case (which the lower house overwhelmingly endorsed) against the Ombudsman!Im tempted to say I have seen this before and I have heard this before - in the impeachment trial of former President Estrada. But maybe that will be very simplistic and sweeping. After all, this is a different senate in terms of composition.But still, I am apprehensive about the process. The simple process of deciding on the rules may take forever. There are also many possibilities for a deadlock in the trial process, like what happened to the "envelope issue" in the Estrada trial. Will this case warrant a popular mobilization if it gets to that?Or will President Aquino's alleged popularity and influence again come to play, as it did in securing positive votes for the impeachment in the Lower House? This I will be monitoring closely as the trial nears. Many analysts are now starting to scrutinize each senator and examine the prospects of a conviction. Including that of Senator Lacson. But everyone seems to be wary at this point and no concrete pattern is discernible. What can be perceived from this predicament is the prominent divide between the allies of and former President GMA herself on one hand, and that of the incumbent President Noynoy Aquino on the other. Who will prevail?

Senate Investigation

March 29th, 2011 No comments
As the daily media coverage of the on-going Senate investigation into alleged anomalies in the military bombarded my senses, I cant help but get a certain feeling of dejavu. Been there, seen that...? Consequently, these questions pop up in my head: Where is this investigation, with all the media hype, taking us? What legislative measures, if any, will be enacted after this investigation is completed? What will be the predicament of the personalities involved, both the accused and the witnesses?And relating these questions to previous senate investigations,where have those investigations taken us, aside from the daily media attention generating public opinion? What legislative measures had been enacted, upon being "aided" by those investigations? What has become of the witnesses and personalities paraded in front of the television cameras and splashed into the newspaper frontpages?Thinking aloud now, I believe we should be a little bit more critical of the processes being undertaken in the legislature, and a little bit more demanding on the accountabilities of senators and congressmen to the Filipino people.After all, these democratic institutions (such as the legislature) are supposed to be the agencies through which our will as a people is expressed, formulated, and carried out.

The Lacson "Strategy"

March 28th, 2011 No comments
Philippine Senator Lacson's action, wherein upon learning of an arrest warrant issued against him, went "underground" and "resurfaced" only when the said warrant has been quashed, provoked mixed reactions from citizens of the Philippines.But to my mind, this is a painful illustration of how even the country's justice system can be perceived as subjects of politician interests and maneuvers. As Lacson himself, a senator of the republic, competently demonstrated by his actions.Lacson refused to be subjected to the legal process in a context wherein the political leadership is an opponent. Does it imply that the court can be used by malacanang, or whoever is in power?Lacson resurfaces after the warrant has been quashed, and a new political leadership is in place. Does it imply that the court then can be used by malacanang, or whoever is in power?This scenario has left me wondering: How do we really insulate the country's legal system from partisan politics? If we cannot do that immediately, the Lacson "strategy" may very well be a popular "legal" strategy.

All right, close your eyes. What do you see?
Nothing.
Rub them... Can you see the stars?
Yes.

She has days when everything in the world is merely a sign for something else.
A red chair can't just simply be a red chair.
It must have a secret meaning about the whole of life. Everything is an omen.
Nothing can just be what it is.
