Hell Hath No Fury

You were about to say “than a woman scorned”? Right?

Well I have something better for you – Hell hath no fury than a Noynoyista scorned. Gotcha! 😛

If you think hell hath no fury than a woman scorned – you ain’t seen a Noynoyista yet!

As you know by now, Noynoyistas tend to paint the discussion as if the race were just between Villar and Aquino. Makes up for an easy dichotomy. Alas my dear Watson, I don’t buy false dilemmas. So when I remind Noynoyistas that Villar is not the only candidate in town, I see a deer staring at headlights in a dark winding road.

Heres’a  sprinkling of some exchanges be ready to get amused or pissed off, depending on your threshold of tolerance for bleep bleep!

> “Unity with justice. Ibig sabihin those who plundered the economy should be punished, those who destabilized the economy because of their coup attempts should be punished.”

There’s a time for everything. And there is due process. Respect the process. We can’t punish people based on tsismis  – only barbarians do that. If we have bumbling prosecutors replace the darn prosecutors. Ang hirap kasi niyan, we blame government or blame the process – we don’t ask our investigators to step up their game – establish the paper trail. If you recall how Al Capone was taken down – it was all about the paper trail. They did it in the 1940s – It’s already 2010 – and Philippines is still rallying about this? Susginoo. Puro how show.

> .hahahaha…the problem in the country is not about politics, the economy…it is a moral problem. filipinos are having morality problems that lead to corruption, greed, lust for power…the problem with this country too is that it gives too much rights to people who don’t even know how to handle such rights…many filipinos want power but what the hell would they do with it if it was given to them? it is time we force some mentality and morality into all filipinos, including me. ”

That’s one way of looking at it… There is indeed a strong correlation in a multitude of studies on culture and economic development. However establishing causality between culture and economic development, beyond reasonable doubt, is another thing. We can further say that the aggregate individual behavior manifests itself in the social dysfunction of the Philippines.

And the last sentences about power and not knowing what to do with it reminds me of the injunction “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” (Matthew 7:6).”

> “Anybody wants to know the true character of Dick Gordon? Please look back at the time he was slavishly defending the retention of US military bases and how force and violence were employed to crush the protests against the US military bases. Records will speak for itself.”

For a person protecting the jobs of his constituency, that was the right thing to do. Albeit unpopular with the rest of the country – but the right thing for his constituents. That says a lot about the man. However, he didn’t stop there – he was not stuck in the moment and moved forward with the transformation of Subic – the lives he saved and transformed in Pinatubo – the records will speak for itself.

> “Anyway, I never like Senator Gordon.  He was too subservient to the American government and and I remember he persecuted many of his critics in Olongapo City when he served there as Mayor, ala Marcos.”

Subservient to US government or – supportive of the needs of his constituents for jobs?

Persecuted? Or set them straight for promoting laziness and stupidity.

=======

> “Oh, really?  So its okay to violate the rights of the people to mount protests for as long as it is protective of the jobs of his constituency?  It is okay to ignore the national interest and the requirement of our Constitution for the removal of US bases for as as long his constituency in Olongapo retain their jobs?  You want that kind of myopic and selfish attitude for a President?  Well, I rest my case.  Dapat nga kayong magsama.  Pero titiyakin ko na ang boto ko, ng mga kaanak at kaibigan ko ay hindi para sa kanya.”

Sheesh… You clamor for removal of US bases – and yet panay naman hingi ng USAID for helicopters, equipment, training, from the US. Kungdi ba naman ipokrito. Yan ang problema – you want the cake and eat it, too. Grow up!

National interest? Really? Guess what Cory had land reform as the cornerstone of social justice – anong ginawa nila – ginawang SDO. susginoo… integrity my ass. mga gulang kamo.

One man’s myopia is another man’ focus to serve his constituents. That same level of focus and doggedness when applied towards the Philippines can go great lengths. Unlike Tarlac, hanggang ngayon agrarian economy pa rin. NIloko pa yung mga farmers.

At the very least Gordon did not mince words about his support for the bases.

Aquinos said they supported land reform, said it was cornerstone of her policy – then distributes a piece of paper you can use for wiping your ass – that’s honesty for you. susginoo. no wonder the Philippines is Asia’s Laggard.

>  You cant compare a business tycoon who created his own business empire from scratch out of SIPAG at TIYAGA into a public official who lead Subic Bay for several years, who has no other alternative but to move subic forward ! Both had shown leadership in different fields !”

that is true – no one’s denying his business success. both had shown leadership in both fields. villar has a head start in business. gordon has a head start in public service. as you pointed out – both villar and gordon have the legislative experience – but gordon has the public executive experience.

What’s the point providing political power to someone who does not have a platform and program – that’s a cop-out.

=====
>
> Nope this is real politics, not campus politics !”

Given the same period of time, one went to enrich the community – another went on to enrich himself.
it would have been better if both Villar and Gordon presented their positions on a range of key issues – environment, economy – for short a comprehensive platform similar to nick perlas.
after all when you have two sterling candidates – it now boils down to issues. i’ll go for the one who resonates with the issues i value. since both have not stepped up to the thinking effort done by perlas, i only have actual output to go by – and it is hard to argue with subic’s success.

screw winnability – that why politics becomes a dirty word. screw it.

I like that part about Executive Performance. Cheers.

> ” The head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) delegation to the Philippines stressed that the humanitarian organization is not supporting the presidential plans of the current Philippine National Red Cross chair Richard Gordon.”

If one reads the ICRC mission statement, it goes –

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance.

Do you peepz know what impartial means – that means they will not endorse anyone. Anyone heard about strawman arguments? This is one of ’em. Ok lang yan kung ignorante kaharap. But puhleeze use more strawmen, gagawin kong bagoong. (that should have been, gagawin kong punching bag because bagoong is for red herrings – blame it on the flu medication.. lol)

======

This is going to be a long election! Stepping into any discussion peppered with  Noynoyistas reminded me of Woody Harrelson in Zombieland – it’s just that in this case, the zombies are colored yellow!!!

I was thinking of something profound to say (not that I have said anything profound in my life.. lol).

Having borne the brunt of the hornets’ attack, plus the fact that am too zonked out with my flu medication, I figured that I would just let someone else have the last word –

Wow, ang galing naman ng list of accomplishments ni Noynoy sa Pinoy Exchange. 201 pages long and contains nothing substantial except questions from people repeatedly asking what he has done.
GO FIGURE.

  1. The disturbing thing here is that anti-Glorianism is being extended to anti-Gordonism as well as anti-Villarism and anti-Giboism. Later, it may become anti-Perlasism, anti-Villanuevaism, etc. Grabe, anyone who isn’t for Noynoy is considered by them as the enemy or traitors! How imperialistic!

    Just got into a Facebook tower defense game called The Crazies (also a zombie movie that’s coming up). Wearing yellow makes one a zombie? You can call such Noynoyistas the Yellow Crazies! hehe

    Or since anyone not for Noynoy is the “enemy” – the Bushies, since they’re like George Bush! “If you’re not for us, you’re against us!” haha

  2. Aha! No wonder the Philifinos are Numero OCHO sa Facebook … According to Businessweek, Filipinos are the 8th users worldwide of Facebook …… THEY DUMPED FRIENDSTER …. POOR FRIENDSTER …..

  3. I also liked the “work experience” part. Hanggang family business lang si Noy. (Umaasa lagi sa magulang, tsk tsk.) And his two other work experience aren’t even that outstanding. Hanggang retail at advertising lang. Compare mo kay Gibo, Gordon, at Villar. Sa work experience pa lang, wow na wow na ang tatlo. Noynoy? Nah. Even their educational background speaks for themselves. Hanggang undergrad lang si Noy. Kahit honors wala rin. Gibo, Gordon, and Villar showed exemplary achievements in whatever field they landed in.

    Let’s face it — Noynoy is incompetent in everything that he is in, whether it be in politics, work, education, or family. 😀

  4. Natawa din ako sa comment ng guy sa “other fields” section. Nag-“yey” pa siya sa mga achievements ni Noynoy dun. Apparently, he is desperate to prove that his manok is the one to choose and not the rest. 🙂

  5. Interjector · ·

    As far as I know Noynoy got that job in Mondragon because Gonzalez of that company owed Cory a favor so in return, granted a position for her son there. Awa ng diyos isang taon ang itinagal niya doon. That was the time when Nike was promoted by Michael Jordan so it was not like he had to do much there.ME

  6. Let me just describe Noynoy in the most apt words that typify him – ordinary and nondescript. Nothing much done, good or bad, lackluster, just in the job just to have a job, no awards, no honors… doesn’t even look good… just like the people who vote for him. 😉

  7. I like all presidentiable trash. I wish that they sit as president make Malacanang as their home. The more they trash Philippines. The more they dip into our treasury making Central Bank as their own personal ATM machines THE BETTER FOR MY FOREX.

    It is goot for me. This way DOWDY WOWOWIEE FILIPINOS CANNOT HANG-OUT IN STARBUCKS and cannot EAT BULAGA ANYMORE. Forex is a filtering process. Effective ones.

  8. Renato,

    Even if our OFW brothers and sisters fail to keep us afloat, the Koreans appear committed on making the Philippines their “Florida”. So like it or not, our poor country will not implode any time soon for money just likes to trickle down to our lovely little paradise.

    See you at Starbucks 🙂

  9. It’s not hard to see that the Philippines is dependent on foreign money. Some will even say the OFWs have to re-invest in the country, or that it’s better for us to be a closed economy like Japan once was. I disagree with this because, first, kawawa ang mga OFWs, their lazy kababayans are already milking them dry. Second, closed economy means crashed economy, since we can’t use our own resources properly, for reasons like corruption, bad systems, etc., among others. If we can’t shape up, we really have to kiss foreign ass, just like the Spaniards taught us to.

    That’s why the anti-Gordon people are most likely deceived, or they’re just xenophobics (afraid of foreigners and foreign stuff).

  10. Chino, I’d like to think that people who are voting for abnoy are just that, ordinary, it is actually very unfortunate that some of these very people are my friends whom i have a lot of respect for… it saddens me that they have yellow fever….

  11. Yeah, sure is sad dude… voters show what they are like in who they vote. So for example, those who voted for Erap then were most likely themselves drunkards, womanizers, gamblers, lazy people and criminals.
