The Countdown to 2016 Begins
I maintain no delusion – Noynoy Aquino is poised to clinch this election well before the outcome of the 2010 Philippine elections started trickling in. We called it in as early as Dec 25, 2009 in BenK’s Top Ten Predictions for 2010 and again in Jan 2010 in the blog The Triumph of Winnability, Death of Ability, Abortion of the Meritocracy.
Throughout this campaign, AP has pointed out the various flaws in Noynoy Aquino’s positions on corruption, the economy, oligarchs, Noynoy’s performance, hacienda luisita, and credibility – without letup.
Any sane person with a modicum of sanity and reason would have thought a thousand times before voting for a Noynoy Aquino, or an Estrada for that matter. With the kinds of moronic citizens and voters the Philippines has today – the Philippines ascent to progress is highly doubtful, even improbable. So it has again come to pass, that a blind man will lead a nation of the blind – how fitting for Asia’s laggard, the sick man of Asia, the most dangerous country for journalists, one of the most corrupt countries in Asia. The Filipino voter has just tightened the noose around his/her head – instead of loosening it.
Some who have experienced an election for the first time will be undergoing some form of grief. The most identifiable of these might be from Elizabeth Ross’ book “On Death and Dying”. The stages Ross identified are:
* Denial (this isn’t happening to me!)
* Anger (why is this happening to me?)
* Bargaining (I promise I’ll be a better person if…)
* Depression (I don’t care anymore)
* Acceptance (I’m ready for whatever comes)
I have been in Acceptance for the longest time. As in, sh*t happens in the Philippines every day, what else is new.
Many times I have been told that I should just let Pinoy have it – so they finally get to learn it the hard way. And so the Filipinos have decided to relearn it the hard way. I said relearn because these lessons seem to have a habit of slipping past the Pinoys attention span. While the Indonesians, Singaporeans, and Koreans have moved past the starting line and are in a mad dash for the finish line, the Pinoy can’t even figure out where the starting line is.
Philippine Elections and Filipino Voters are a Joke!
Da Pinoy started a joke – he called it Erap. Da Pinoy got tired of the joke, replaced with another joke. Not getting tired of a replacement joke, Da Pinoys vote another joke into the Presidency. The Philippines is one big jokes, Da Pinoy is one big joke.
The thing about this joke is that the spread of poverty, the wider disparity in income, the incompetence of Cory Aquino’s cabinet-on-the-comeback – is no joke.
But hey, AP is ready to roll with this joke – the joke will be on all the fellas who voted for Noynoy and Erap.
Brace for the I Told You So Ride of Your Life
I will mock you, I will bash you, I will degrade you, I will embarrass you, and remind you of the stupid choice you made today, May 10, 2010 – and I will make no excuses for being a jackass, and rightfully so. =)
So heads up everyone, start getting those slogans ready, and remind these idiots of their moronic choice of Noynoy until May 10, 2016 – enjoy the ride.
Kabayan who voted for a lazy moron, you bring me misery, I will gladly return the favor, every day, until May 10, 2016.
In the beginning was the word, and the word was … MORON, IAM4NOYNOY – am starting with you.😀
