Walang Pagsisisi sa Simula – The First Three Weeks

July 17, 2010

This post continues after the first episode that came out a week after May 10, 2010. It will now be nearly three weeks after Pres Noynoy Aquino  formally took office. Prior to that it is presumed that a transition plan was being executed.  At the rate things are turning out – it seems that there wasn’t even one from the start.

Thus far, we have had a very amusing week starting off with the:

1. Rumor of Boy Abunda as DOT Secretary.😯

2. Binay’s eager-beaver to be DILG Secretary.:mrgreen:

3. Roxas filing electoral fraud protest against Binay (numbers for Roxas were skewed but not for Binay – quite interesting turnout for SWS – correct on Aquino, wrong on Roxas).🙄 –

The Politics

(Manila Standard) As pointed out by the supporters of Roxas, the SWS survey which showed Binay tied up with their vice presidential candidate was conducted before Roxas obtained the backing of Pastor Apollo Quiboloy’s Kingdom of Jesus Christ which claims to have a six million strong membership. More importantly, he also got the endorsement of the influential Iglesia ni Cristo religious sect whose members have proven to vote as a bloc and could easily bring in three to four million votes for the national candidate their support. – SO NO – The SWS survey is kinda questionable.

The Science

The margin of error is a statistic expressing the amount of random sampling error in a survey’s results. The larger the margin of error, the less faith one should have that the poll’s reported results are close to the “true” figures; that is, the figures for the whole population.

Statistical tie” and “statistical dead heat” are sometimes used to describe reported percentages that differ by less than a margin of error, but these terms can be misleading

For one thing, the margin of error as generally calculated is applicable to an individual percentage and not the difference between percentages, so the difference between two percentage estimates may not be statistically significant even when they differ by more than the reported margin of error. The survey results also often provide strong information even when there is not a statistically significant difference.

When comparing percentages, it can accordingly be useful to consider the probability that one percentage is higher than another

In simple situations, this probability can be derived with 1) the standard error calculation introduced earlier, 2) the formula for the variance of the difference of two random variables, and 3) an assumption that if anyone does not choose Binay they will choose Roxas, and vice versa; they are perfectly negatively correlated. This may not be a tenable assumption when there are more than two possible poll responses. For more complex survey designs, different formulas for calculating the standard error of difference must be used.

As DrJR2 wrote in Noy-Bi versus Noy-Mar: Oligarch Protectionism versus Economic Liberalization

“faster than anyone could say “President-elect Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III”, numerous Noynoy-Mar supporters from the burgis class and Liberal Party supporters were shell-shocked to see Makati Mayor and VP-candidate Jejomar Binay consistently dominate the polls over Mar Roxas.

While these same people were primed to think that Mar Roxas originally had a strong showing in the surveys, it now seems like what everyone refers to as the “Noy-Bi” campaign was a scheme cooked up from the very beginning by no less than Noynoy Aquino’s own close relatives who were outside of the Liberal Party’s command-structure.” 😈

4. Wangwang-we and Habitual Tardiness.❗ Lacierda late on first day – not really a good way to start work. Noynoy late due to non-use of sirens – can’t distinguish between necessity and luxury. Makes you wonder what else is he capable of not distinguishing?

5. Botched memo. Firing employees on day one – without preparing for the sudden cessation of public services due to such termination. Memo was revoked and re-issued. Make up your mind, assuming you have one.🙄

6. Appointing a religious person into a secular position – apparently the memo on church and state separation will come out in 2017 – just like distribution of Hacienda Luisita to farmers.😕

7.  Brother Armin Altamirano Luistro FSC, Padre Damaso act with the media.😕

8. Media training for Aquino’s team. Trained in what exactly? – to sound more like Arroyo. Yup Noynoy is all about change – he is changing into another Arroyo – ArroQuino.😈

9. On the upside CHR Chair De Lima (Great choice of CHR  by Arroyo by the way!!!!) was appointed DOJ Secretary. The downside – More activists are dead in less than 3 weeks – and we thought Arroyo was bad – and all Arroyo appointees are “bad” and “evil”😳

10. Basyang leaves 23 dead, 77 missing and all Aquino can do is blame PAGASA. Maybe if you and your fellow Pork Barrel reciepients bothered to use your pork barrel on pag-asa – you can have saved lives. But no – you just have to have the pork barrel – oink.👿

11. Had a pentecostal revival/variety show – a “Presidential inaugural” (an oxymoron in this case) with sesame street big bird mascots.

12. On the upside – Maynilad reduced the water rate. The downside – rates were reduced not because of improved efficiency but because of the P0.19 per cubic meter decrease in its foreign currency differential adjustment (FCDA) resulting from the strong performance of the peso.😳

13. Meralco rates up again – Power firm blames IPPs for increase. It’s the usual blaming gain – but no real solutions. What foreign investor in his right mind will invest in Philippine utilities if he cannot own more than 40% of the equity – are you out of your freaking mind? Not more than 40% –  Operation and management of public utilities (Art. XII, Sec. 11 of the Constitution; Sec. 16 of C.A. 146)

Thank the 1987 Aquino Constitution – Meralco can keep on blaming the IPPs.

Here’s a mind experiment. Based on the Constitution – IPP – Foreign is only 40%, 60% is Filipino. For the foreign counterpart to make a profit on its 40% the rates have to be increased to reach their desired revenue goals. In the process of increasing the 40% – the 60% also increases – and the cost is passed on to the consumer.

All this talk of privatization – but with the same inefficient Filipino companies cornering the deal – will WORSEN the cost of electricity. This will become really dire under a peak oil scenario in 2015. Foreigner investors should be allowed to have shares higher than 40% – up to 55%. We need to have the option of regulating the flow of FDI through legislation NOT as a permanent fixture in the Constitution.

of course, the issue of national security can be raised – seriously, the way our current Filipino electric utilities are producing electricity – IS A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY – THERE’S NO ELECTRICITY GARDEMMIT.👿

14. Given this state of affairs, people are saying give him some slack. Hello – the job starts on Day 1, not Day 100. You asked for the job, get to work, stop the moronic excuses.❗

15. Aquino hires a media team – and starts spouting – “I am not Superman”. You ought to have said that during the campaign – you gave gullible people  that impression – you broke it, you own it. Managing expectations starts during the campaign not when you have won because you come off as a bogus and a fraud – a switik!

16. Noynoy needs to be reminded about doubtful statistics and the deficit. A change from PhP 290B to PhP 325B is an 11% increase in the deficit! How can you reign in deficit with an 11% increase in the budget? Purisima further declares “a percentage of GDP, the deficit was expected to be 3.9 percent, level with 2009″, the GDP in 2009 was actually 3.5% of GDP – if Purisima says 2010′s 3.9% of GDP is level with 2009′s 3.5% of GDP  – am I missing something or what, please educate me, I will thank you.:mrgreen:

17. During the campaign Aquino promised “From government policies influenced by well-connected private interests? to a leadership that executes all the laws of the land with impartiality and decisiveness”. Turns out – to an Aquino government whose cabinet comes from well-connected corporate interests.  8O  Susmaryosep – kung pinocchio ang mga ito – ang hahaba ng ng mga ilong!!😆

Actions Taken 07/01/2010: “Romulo’s appointment seems to be based on his support for Aquino during the campaign. His track record however shows he did not uphold national interests while in the DFA,” he added. Reyes is also concerned with the appointments of Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, a proponent of the expanded value-added tax law in 2005 and was listed a big contributor to the Aquino campaign; Tourism Secretary Alberto Lim who is with the Makati Business Club; Energy Secretary Jose Rene Almendras, a former president of the Ayala-owned Manila Water; and Transportation and Communication secretary Jose “Ping” de Jesus, former president and chief operating officer of electricity distributor Meralco. “As with the Aquino election campaign, the Aquino cabinet has many ties to big business. Let us see how these ties will weigh in on the decisions of the next administration,” Reyes said.😯

18. Of course, who can not fail notice Kris Aquino and the dysfunctional state of the Philippines family law – opting for the moronic Catholic-inspired annullment instead of divorce. There  are only two countries (excl the Vatican) which don’t have divorce -Malta and the Philippines – believe you me, I am not surprised  – it’s the effin Philippines what else is new.🙄

19. A toothless tiger (more of a white elephant actually) called the Truth Commission is being proposed.

“It is unnecessary for them to form such commission because it will only lengthen the proceedings. This has nothing to do with the credibility of Davide but more a practical aspect. If we want to put closure to the issues, then file it with the Department of Justice and the Ombudsman. We have these government agencies already. Lalo pa siguro lalabo ang kwento kung meron pang truth commission,” former Senator Aquilino Pimentel Jr. told reporters at the weekly Balitaan sa Rembrandt Hotel in Quezon City. I may not agree with Pimentel’s politics of opportunism but I do agree with his legal mind.

Then sensing that their cases have questionable evidence on Arroyo – they resort to maligning Gutierrez, the Ombudsman. What kind of government is this? It cannot even follow its own laws, that it itself created. If Aquino’s team has a problem with Gutierrez, impeach her under the rules laid down by the Constitution – which Noynoy’s mom had crafted.

If you want the rule of law to reassert itself – follow it – the process might be tough – but its the law! When we resort to this mob machinations, we go on a slippery slope – unbecoming of a country that aspires to be a first country by 2020, never mind that its former classmates South Korea , Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia are already knocking on the door of first world status at the beginning of the millenium.

Don’t govern the Philippines like a hacendero. This ain’t Tarlac anymore, Dorothy.

20. Then there’s that wellspring of corruption – the pork barrel. Noynoy isn’t giving up the pork barrel – he’s just having it managed by PMS.

This past three weeks really doesn’t give one the sense that Aquino knows what he is doing. I said it BEFORE the election – and I’ll say it again now.

Dig In – it’s going to be a long six years. You got what you voted for – put up with it.

I didn’t vote for Aquino – am not putting up with his crap – didn’t put up with it before he got elected,  and now – there’s more BS – I should put up with it because he’s the President? WTF?

Compromise – when competence is compromised with stupidity we get a Tarlacized version of the Philippines. We had the chance to have a Subic-ized version – and blew it.

Six years of schaudenfreude – PRICELESS!😈

Having said that – what can we do?

Only one thing – save ourselves – if the Aquino government wants to implode let it.

Don’t let that take the focus out of your path to personal success. With more reason you should be focused on your personal affairs because the Philippine government is a useless piece of appendage – more so now that an oligarch kid is in power and is enamored with his toys – see, he can fire people or just make them resign like General Bangit.

You can compete in the global market – after all there’s more to outsourcing than meets the eye and of course, you can break the myth of “Filipinos can’t compete” – whether you are in the Philippines or abroad – despite of the Philippine government. But be forewarned so you are forearmed with the landmines that the oligarch has planted – regulations that skew the constitution in its favor.

Be the ubermann – break from the Filipino herd.

WHACK THE ANTI-PINOY (if you know, who really is the anti-pinoy) !

    Indicative of how much effort Noynoy in particular and his team in general had put into preparing to provide excellent governance to Pilipinas (or at least those who voted “yellow”) —- gov(dot)ph is still ‘down’ with the palabra-de-palusot ‘Rest assured we are working.”

    What can you expect from FlopNoy?🙄

    Seriously, I don’t get the so called “Yellow Praise” from the media. What the hell? All he did was perform loads of terrible decisions coupled with displaced criticisms against the other sectors . Nothing deeper than that. Tsk.

    i love this entry antipinoy!!! antipinoy is not pessmistic, but just plain realists.🙂

    sadly i still meet people from different classes and different demographics who believe that noynoy is the one because walang mahirap pag walang corrupt. stupid populace led by a stupid government.

  4. This entry Rocks!

    The clueless idiot will have to face the truth sooner or later… And when he does, I doubt he could change it and make it work.

    America: Our president is black
    Philippines[1986]: Our president is a woman
    Philippines[2010]: Our president is an idiot!

    The Philippines is heading downhill from here… I guess!

    “WHAT CAN WE DO?”

    1. Let’s wish our leaders well, even if we didn’t vote for them.

    2. Beyond our own personal success, let’s help the needy and disadvantaged.

    3. And, blog positive ideas instead of being ‘nattering nabobs of negativism.’ 8)

  6. Wishing is good – ACTION is better. GOOD ONES not GAFFES.

    Let’s teach people how to fish – don’t give the fish.

    And be discerning – identify the goat from the sheep.

    You can’t be blogging positive – when your leaders are idiots – unless you too are an idiot.

    now, if the idiotic leaders were changed either through a change of approach – or replacement – through blogging – that’s POSITIVE 8)

    but that’s just me.

    It’s going to be a long 6 years indeed. Has anyone noticed that there’s not much news coming from Malacanang over the past 3 weeks, compared to GMA’s time? Talk about hitting the ground running, this administration must be crawling like turtles with nothing much to report on their first 3 weeks on the job.

    And the only news we have today of Noynoy is for the past three weekends, the President has not scheduled any official function on weekends but spending his time doing firearm shooting practices. To think that there is a long list of urgent things that needs to be done in the Philippines and here we have a President who thinks that the Presidency is a regular 9am-5pm, 40 hours a week job. What a wanker!

    That is exactly what we are doing here, we are blogging positive ideas for reform: support the passage of FOIA, support constitutional revision, end the culture of pork barrel and patronage politics, what else, let me just say Phil Manila, that we are quite issue-oriented here. I am personally resigned to a mediocre presidency and I will not be surprised if anything catastrophic will happen without N/A’s attention. The Filipino public seem to be in sync with N/A, they are fatalists after all, and this is not being negative, this is being realistic and factual, so, their expectations of what the N/A presidency can achieve are very low. It means they are pretty satisfied with whatever the N/A leadership brings. Let’s see about the crabby media how long it will toe the yellow emotional line.

    As to the first two, well, you don’t need to advertise any good deeds you do, most Filipinos are already carrying a lot of the burden of supporting everyone with loser lives, since there is no social safety net in the country. I for one, despite my Nietzchian tendencies have proven to be a true Filipino patriot, sending thousands of dollars every month just to fill in the inadequacies of our socio-political system. Am I advertising here, hell, now, this is a given for any Filipino living abroad, if we want to keep ties with the beloved country.

    PartyNOY’s economic plan –

    give Dole-outs to poor families.

    And lol at the cult’s pentecost celebration. Haha. Kulto.

  10. Wishing is good… But, ACTION speaks louder than words… And Abnoy is just wishing and not doing anything.

    Well, then let’s teach them and make them learn to help each other and themselves – not be slacker til’ the end of their lives

    Well… How can I blog stuff about the great leader that is Noynoy… If his first weeks in office is being a moron to the boot… Then if he can show something concrete he can do something for the good of the people[Not the WangWang Cliche!], then he still continues to be an idiot in our eyes!

  11. tingog boss permalink

    The Pilipinas media has not yet ranted on Noynoy Admin about the human rights killings. I suppose the editors and columnists of broadcast TV and the metro-Manila mainline newspapers don’t feel threatened yet. Or maybe it is because the➡ metro-Manila media-folks are practically all trying to get😯 appointments into the Noynoy administration.

    If the elected leader shows good potentials at the outset of his leadership, then it will be easier to win believers out of doubters. While it’s true that we as participants in the last democratic process must subscribe to the will of the majority, we cannot just closenour eyes and blind subjects.

    We may not be as brilliant as some people in the leadership they are but we are not stupid to miss noticing the unprecendent show of moronic moves by the president and his minions.

    Well we are not at all surprise actually as we have already anticipated this rather comical show of governance from a man who hasn’t shown excellence and achievement of any form in his entire life. We have chosen mediocrity now

    Stupidity coupled with the stubbornness to allow our constitution to adapt to the new requirements of the modern times is a sure fire formula to keep the PI mired at the cellar.

    We should realize that the 86 consti was written based in the prevailing sentiments at that time. That makes many of it’s provisions as impractical and counter productive.

    It also limits our competitiveness in the global arena.

    Term limit must go. Election every three years must be changed to every six years or so due to practical reasons.

    Centralized government must give way to federal parliamentary.

    Unless we start shaping up, we will continue to slid down the economic ladder.

    Six years of another medicore Aquino rule definitely doesn’t show any promise of positive change.

  33. whou permalink

    nagtaka lang po ako bakit di nyo masabi kng cno dapat ang naging presidente. kng d na nya gustong tumakbo ulit, e di gamitin nyo ang convincing powers nyo. sa talino nyong yan. imposibleng di nyo ma-convince ang gusto nyong kandidato pati mga botante. yan kng di maturn-off sa insulto nyo kasi parang walang modo? di ko tulong maiwasang isiping kaya naturn-off mga botante kc baka katulad nyo ang ugali ng kandidato nyo? yan ay ganang akin lamang po.

  34. 1. de Lima was appointed by Arroyo as CHR (during Arroyo’s term).

    2. Aquino took de Lima out from CHR and appointed her as DOJ.

    3. If all of folks in Arroyo admnistration are “evil” as Aquio and his zombies portray anyone related with Arroyo (as if Mar Roxas asn’t appointed DTI Secretary by Arroyo) – and Noynoy has a lot of them in his cabinet…. hmmmm… evil of the same feather😆

    betterer?

  35. @whou

    Ang karapat-dapat na maging Presidente ay ang isang lider na may napatunayan na o nagawa na sa ikabubuti ng sambayanang Pilipino. Ang mga kandidatong may malinaw na programa ang dapat na maging lider ng ating bansa.

    Si President Noynoy Aquino ay nanalo lamang dahil sa kanyang pangalan. Hindi niya gustong maging Presidente. Itinulak lamang siya ng mga taong ganid at may ambisyong pangsarili. Sampung taon na siya sa larangan ng Pulitika pero ano ang kanyang nagawa? Karapat-dapat bang manalo sa halalan ang isang kandidato na imbes programa para sa sambayanan ang talakayin ay ipinakita lamang sa mga tao ang kanyang pamangkin na si Baby James? Hindi.

    Ang “convincing powers” na nabanggit mo ay walang kalaban-laban dahil sa tinatawag na Yellow Media – mga mamahayag at telebisyong kampi lamang sa isang kandidato, dahil ang mga may-ari ay may mga tinatanaw na utang na loob sa pamilyang Aquino.

    Marahil ay bata ka pa at hindi mo pa maunawaan kung bakit ganito ang tono ng AP. May dapat tayong baguhin sa ating kultura. Hindi tayo dapat magpadala sa bugso ng damdamin. Kailangan nating gamitin ang ating pag-iisip at huwag basta-basta maniwala sa mga propaganda.

    Sana ay magbasa ka pa at sana ay maunawaan mo ang mga usapin dito.

    you think AP is promoting personalities?!? you think AP is like your favorite show, the buzz?!?

    this site promotes ideas, critical thoughts and solutions, not personalities. it just so happened that your idol, abnoynoy, is a reflection of the failed ideas and solutions of this country. i suggest you read more articles here. maybe then you will realize that you were actually hypnotized by the emotions of the yellow cult.

  39. As if that little trivial error detracts from the main message of the post.

    But thanks anyway for pointing it out.

  40. yah – 15 million Filipinos did not use their imagination – and voted for Aquino instead of Gordon.

    Filipinos sow hot air, and reap the whirlwind.

    Filipinos made the choice of Aquino – a minority president courtesy of the dysfunctional Cory Aquino Constitution

    AP blogged like mad during the campaign BUT – AP is a voice in the wilderness, a mad man walking in the streets holding a torch in brad daylight – looking for Filipinos who actually… THINK..

    Cause.. and Effect… Causality… KARMA

    Vote for Aquino…. Reap the Consequences – A BUFFON GOVERNMENT

    Frankly, we don’t have to blog really – our lives are already comfortable, our careers are on auto-pilot, we have climbed our personal Everests – and we are sharing our life’s lessons – returning back to the community – this is our choice of community service – proiding views that are suppressed in mainstream media.

    We will not serve you a beautiful cake – all we offer is our truth. your truth might be different. and you are free to start your own blogsite, go to blogsites which you think are more attuned to your liking – one thing for sure, AP ain’t the type na nadadala sa gulat – when people try that approach AP – AP doesn’t moderate – AP pushes back – NO COMPROMISE WITH STUPIDITY!

    I feel and share your frustration. The reason why the Philippines is poor is because of the people.

    Rizal had seen it during his time and wrote about it in his essays most notably in The Indolence of the Filipinos and The Philippnes a Century Hence. More than a hundred years after his death, his prognosis of his countrymen is still spot on.

    When will we be enlightened?

    When will we ever learn?

  45. e kung ayaw ng masa doon sila sa gunggong – e di yan ang napala ng masa.

    grow up- you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

    and if you ask the masa of Subic – they are quite glad about Gordon being stragithforward – nabago ang attitude ng masa

    how can you expect a change of leaders when the masa does not change its attitude… laos na ang emo…

    nilagay ang utak sa taas ng puso – may utak kayo… gamitin nyo…

  48. Para kang taong naniniwala na, kung anong pinakain sa iyo, tanggapin mo nalang. So kung lason ang binigay sa iyo, at inutusan kang inumin yan, gagawin mo ba? Kami yung nagsasabi na, wag mong tanggapin ang lason (Aquino), yung tamang pagkain ang dapat piliin (Gordon). Ayan, ang nangyari parang yung lason nga ang tinaggap, pero tuwang-tuwa pa ang taong bayan. After six years, mare-realize ang mga taong bayan na lason tuloy ang ininom nila.

  49. Hello mga kabayans,

    I see a lot of comments saying how incompetent our new president is. But right now, what can we really do, eh? Are your comments really going to help our current situation? It’s degrading, destructive, and it reflects just how bitterly civil we are. Some of them are brutally funny, yes, but that’s just it. Nothing more.

    Seriously. I was once like this. Strong-willed and hell-bent on shoving up my political beliefs up anyone’s face. But what’s done is done. We can either support the ship or drag it all down.

    I myself was extremely disappointed with the results. But from the last elections, I know there is a lot of smart Pinoys out there and people starting to think critically, so, I decided to make a website (www.waripinas.com) that aims to help our country by allowing its citizens to share their ideas, collaborate and build the best solutions on how to solve an issue. I believe that given enough minds, no issue is too big to be solved or too little not to be noticed. It’s not much at the moment. I just launched it 4 days ago. But I hope it’d be something or at least change some of our fellow Pinoys a change in perspective.

    Instead of talking about people, why not, let’s talk about ideas? We’re a smart-bunch, right? Let’s give our country some collective wisdom.

  50. Solutions-wise, are you kidding?

    ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS Leads to a Defective Constitution skewed with Protectionist Provisions

    Everything else – lack of investments – leading to wide gaps between rich and poor.

    SOLUTION: Charter Change – remove the Protectionist Provisions

    Think Strategic!

    ****

    Problem: Fear of Competition

    Solution: Impart Knowledge – Bring the topic of Competitive Advantage and Supply Chain Management

    ****

    CONSTRAINTS: Pollyannas and wowowee

  51. Aba, mukhang eto ang pag-iisip mo… ang masa o maraming tao ay laging tama, hindi maaaring magkamali ang taong bayan. Ganun ba? Eh napakamali yon. Ang maraming tao ay naloloko din , no. Kung ayaw mo rin kay Erap, bakit naging segundo siya sa eleksyon? Hindi laging tama ang taong bayan, hindi sila diyos, kaya hindi sila dapat laging sinusunod. Hindi nga dapat nga sila sinusunod mismo! Dapat ilagay ang karamihan ng taong bayan sa tamang lugar. Hindi sila ang hari.

  52. WTF DUDE!!! permalink

    how come i have a Gut feeling na something worser things are about to come?

  53. That’s what I’m trying to get – ideas.

    No matter how small or big, as long as it solves an issue, people will collaborate and give constructive inputs on the solutions until we find the best solutions. I believe that good ideas will naturally float to the top.

    I’m not good in politics or social sciences, but in computer science, Linus’ law states that “given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow”. And I believe this to be somehow applicable to governance, including other open-source philosophies as well.

    At the very core, I just want our government to include us in policy making where experts and commoners can share information. No representatives in between, no lobbyists. Government interacts directly to people.

    If we really want to inform people then we need to get them involved. If we really want the people to make better decisions the we need to empower them. If we want them to choose better leaders then they need to know if their leaders are listening.

    With a tool similar to this, we can build stronger relationships, lots of ideas, and hopefully, a more informed public.

  54. Media is a tenacious enemy in such efforts. Before we are able to succeed in getting more people involved, we have to inform them that media is a vicious liar and they have to lose their belief in it. Sadly, with the kind of defective culture we have in the country, that will be hard. But it still needs to be done.

  55. that’s good anghelo – we all have roles to play. at this point – AP is handling out a seminar on a basic computer science concept called – GIGO – Garbage In Garbage Out.

    Garbage Thinking➡ Garbage Choices➡ Garbage Government➡ Garbage Country

    Therefore we need to address what the hell is causing all these garbage choices.

    There are multiple time-lines involved:

    Short-term: Address the Issues/topics – head on by blogging on the topic – and let the free market of ideas come into play

    Medium-term: Build a critical mass of critical thinkers and opinion leaders – who can help spread the message

    Long-Term: Promote more critical thinking through:

    1) blogs
    2) formal and informal education
    3) media channels with programs that counter the culture of medicority
    4) support a candidate who perform and deliver – like Gordon – by raising funds domestically and globally
    5) Support mobilizations for charter change
    6) Support, promote, implement <Government 2.0

    Agenda-wise: It’s all low hanging fruit – there’s a lot of inefficiencies – pick a government agency – you can right=size it, optimize the processes, trim the fat.

    The thing is – we need to prioritize – the strategic thinkers in Aquino’s team need to address the strategic issues (economy/food security/energy security, etc), the administrative team can address right-sizing of government

    Thus far, people are too busy on wangwang, Kris Aquino, innuendoes about Gutierrez… susginoo, and we are supposed to be happy with that… Hate to be a party pooper – now ain’t the time to be partying and fiddling. Not when the Philippines is burning.

    There’s also the AP-wiki if you are into collaborative undertakings you espoused – we actually have a lot of material and still ramping it up – http://antipinoy.com/wiki/ – check it out;

    Excuse me, but there is something called “LEARNING WHY THE HELL WE EFFED UP THE ELECTIONS”.

    This blog serves to explain why we elected a buffoon into the office, why Filipinos always remain in the dredges of development; which hopefully would open up the minds of the people who voted for someone just because of name recall. HOPEFULLY NEXT TIME THEY WOULD AVOID MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN AFTER SIX YEARS. I cannot stress that enough.

    “Garbage Thinking -> Garbage Choices -> Garbage Government -> Garbage Country”

    Uhmmm. . .may point ka bro, pero malaking sablay.🙂

    Not to be deterministic, but culture (based on history and values)creates the mindset, which determines attitudes, that influence personality, and consequently performance.

    And you cannot de-culturize overnight what was ingrained in the Pinoys’ collective DNA from more than 300 years of Spanish convent, 50 years of American Hollywood,5 years of Japanese kempetai, and 65 years of weak self-rule.

    That is why, even second generation Filipino-Americans love Ocho-Ocho parties and Wowowee shows. 8)

  67. Culture might be pervasive – but at the end of the day – it’s the individual’s choice – to go with the culture or to go against it – personal responsibility.

    Those who don’t think and just go with the flow will be in for a ride.

    And it will come back to bite – and the bite can be deadly – case in point Ondoy. If an Ondoy-class typhoon happened in Aquino’s watch what’s he gonna do berate Pag-Asa some more – meanwhile, people are dead.

  68. Actually, Garbage In, Garbage Out is actually how culture works. Culture is man-made after all. The Filipinos deceived themselves to believe that it’s “natural.”

  69. @bong: Thank you. I now understand AP (although I already had the impression of what it was, reading a couple of posts before). It’s just that I strongly believe that pinoys, especially, the students are getting wiser. And we need to get this wisdom from them and that what’s done is done and perhaps maybe we could give some help to our leaders.

    @lilly: I know how effed up it was! I even made a lot of enemies because of it. It’s just the negative aura that I get from reading some of the comments. I also want to suggest that maybe we could get some posts in AP on how to patch up what has already been done, instead of just pointing out the negatives. Lessons learned, yes, but its not really finished yet, is it? There’s still some hope.

  70. @anghelo – i know AP can sometimes come across as too blunt, jackass, jerk and whathaveyou – but if that’s what it takes to wake people up – someone’s gotta do it – there’s a price to pay (being trolled, being labelled anti-pinoy, hate bloggeretc) – i am willing to pay the price – i can handle it – i already am paying the price.

    you are correct – the students are getting wiser – and so is a lot of people – because of the Internet – it is an equalizer. Previously, certain information was available to the oligarchs and their minions only. someone who had information can be killed and the incriminating information gone forever. with the Internet -it’s not that easy anymore.

    certainly, there are topics which can be written for students – assuming of course, they are willing to read with an open and critical mind. but assuming it were so… since you have a good feel of the studentry – cue us in – and we can work together.

    one thing I learned from the left – the studentry is still the best venue for discussing new ideas – and bringing it to the mainstream. the students are also less encumbered with the need to make a living – so they can really devote some time to discussing, refining, improving, and ultimately mobilizing themselves in an organized fashion (lobbying, letter-writing, get out the vote, blogging, public speaking, community service, voter education, citizen watchdog) – methods which are more productive than another emo-laden rally in the streets (been there-done that-the very 1st welgang bayan in the country – Davao City, Biazon was still a Marine Colonel – the “good old days” with Rocky Balili, Jun Cadigal, Jojo Diosana, Nanding Torralaba (dead), Babette Prudencio(dead), Mollie Potes (dead), Salvador Mapansa (dead)” – and yes, the ones (dead) – Babette was pregnant – killed by a grenade launcher, Nanding was abducted – found dead 3 days after a command conference of the Welgang Bayan YS committee, Salvador was found in a shallow grave with a jungle bolo in his neck. up to today, their killers have yet to be bought to justice.

    we put our lives on the line for Cory – and she gave us the Hacienda Luisita Massacre – NEVER AGAIN.

    I’m a realist myself that’s why I read AP rather than the mainstream media who are all sucking up to Penoy. As you said, you have met people who believe he is the one. It truly is difficult to deal with people who seem to have been brainwashed. I can fully relate to this because all my siblings have the same “ÿellow mentality”. When I am with them, I try my absolute best to sound as if I am neutral to Penoy when in fact I still do not believe in him that he can turn this country around. It’s just sad that my family voted for him and believes in him like he is some kind of a saviour, It just makes me sick. What makes it worse for me, is that even the people in my workplace believe this crap.

    ==================================================================================================
    The Philippines changes president
    Sic transit Gloria
    Hope’s six-yearly victory over the Philippine experience
    Jul 1st 2010 | Manila

    THE inauguration of Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino as the Philippines’ new president on June 30th looked less like a ceremony of state than the climax of a revolution. Huge crowds, many of them dressed in yellow, chanting “Noynoy! Noynoy!”, packed Manila’s main park to hear Mr Aquino take his oath. It recalled the people-power revolution of 1986 when Mr Aquino’s mother, Corazon “Cory” Aquino, became president with the help of yellow-clad crowds, chanting “Cory! Cory!”

    Filipinos revered Mrs Aquino because she toppled a corrupt dictator, Ferdinand Marcos, and restored democracy. The assassination of her husband, Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Marcos’s chief opponent, led eventually to the dictator’s downfall. “My parents sought nothing less and died for nothing less than democracy, peace and prosperity,” said Mr Aquino in an inauguration speech frequently punctuated by cheers and applause from the crowd. Mrs Aquino’s death last year let loose a wave of nostalgic popular sentiment which swept her son (an otherwise unremarkable senator) to victory in the presidential election held in May.

    The echoes of 1986 were intentional. Mr Aquino has portrayed himself as the deliverer of the Philippines from what he regards as the corrupt regime of the outgoing president, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. “If there’s no corruption, there’s no poverty,” was his campaign slogan. In his inauguration speech, Mr Aquino promised “the end of a leadership that has long been insensitive to the suffering of the people”.

    The similarities, however, were superficial. Unlike his mother, Mr Aquino was elected in an indisputable election, and he took office in an orderly handover of power, all according to the constitution.

    Mrs Arroyo was no dictator, although many of her opponents said she would have liked to have been one. Her administration was, however, beset by accusations, which she denies, of corruption—not least that she won the 2004 presidential election by cheating.

    Just as his mother set up a commission to try to recoup the fabulous fortune amassed by Mr Marcos, Mr Aquino is setting up a “truth commission” to investigate corruption during Mrs Arroyo’s nine years in office. The precedent of his mother’s commission is not encouraging, but he expects results, stridently warning “those who are talking about reconciliation” that past corruption cannot simply be forgotten, because “there can be no reconciliation without justice.”

    Mr Aquino’s mother also failed to solve the many other problems that bedevil the country. They include, in the economy, sluggish growth, widespread poverty and rapid population growth. The political culture remains fractious and often violent. Communist and Muslim separatist insurgencies persist, and the security forces are often abusive and sometimes mutinous.

    Solutions to these problems also eluded Mrs Arroyo. Now Mr Aquino has six years in office to confront them. However, despite the pseudo-revolutionary fervour of his inauguration, he has come up with little, in his speech then or elsewhere, that smacks of revolutionary solutions.

    Filipinos have been disappointed before. Mrs Arroyo first took power in 2001 in a genuine people-power uprising, that succeeded in booting out another prodigiously corrupt president, Joseph Estrada. And yet the opinion polls suggest that Mrs Arroyo went on to become the most unpopular president since Marcos.

    ==============================================================================================
    The Economist hits on Pinoy and PNOY dysfunction. And its sooooo true.🙂

  84. GabbyD,
    Before you say that you’re helping someone be honest, be sure that you yourself know how to accept the facts being put in front of you.
    SWS said that Roxas was leading in the surveys till the end. And who won? Binay. SWS was wrong on Roxas. Your own conclusion blatantly disregards the facts. You’re the one who’s factually wrong. Seems the connect between your eyes and your brain is malfunctioning.

  85. That IS YOUR interpretation of MY POINT. 😆

    My interpretation of MY POINT is … IT’S ANOTHER MESS under AQUINO. The Vice Presidential position of all positions – para bang MIriam Santiago and FVR😆

    o ano, nominate na kita Battle of the Brainless – respectfully

  86. GabbyD was probably looking for an article by Esposo
    “More than the phenomenal surge of Jojo Binay, Mar Roxas may have been the bigger victim of the very people surrounding him. For one, they did not protect his lead and allowed Mar to be overwhelmed like an amateur UAAP basketball player playing Kobe Bryant of the LA Lakers. They were busy parading around town like peacocks when Mar was enjoying an over 20% lead over his nearest rival.

    Our STAR colleague and Ateneo fellow alumnus Babe Romualdez wrote a column during that time when Manny Villar came to within 2% of Noynoy Aquino where Babe narrated how the Mar group was expressing regret for having given way to Aquino. The Mar people were then deluding themselves that Mar would have been the real winner.

    That is of course pure delusion. Mar gave way to Noy because his presidential campaign was not going anywhere and demonstrated all the signs of a weak brand. That weak brand was demonstrated anew with the way Jojo Binay overtook Mar Roxas in this election. Having courted hubris, Mar’s people saw Mar needing all those TV ads where Noy strongly endorsed Mar as his only vice president and true partner in the rebuilding of the country.

    Bad enough that they’ve failed to protect Mar’s lead — these political parasites are now even creating unnecessary friction and enemies. At a time when Mar desperately needs added allies and friends and should be positively influencing people – they’ve been transforming allies and friends into enemies and turning off people.

    They’ve been badmouthing people whom they’ve accused of stabbing Mar in the back and promoted a Noy-Bi (Noynoy Aquino-Jojo Binay) tandem. Some of these issues have already made it to media. They make it appear that if an Aquino supporter opts to support Binay, then that is treachery. That can be considered treachery only if you’re a member of the Liberal Party but if you’re not then it’s nobody’s business to tell you how to choose your vice president
    .

    Even Aquino’s sisters were not spared and have been painted by this group as members of a cabal that’s out to dominate the inner circle of power in the Aquino administration. Actually, it is the opposite. They are the ones who are salivating to dominate the inner circle of power. Among those whom they’ve badmouthed were your Chair Wrecker, Conrad de Quiros, Tony Meloto, Boy and Maria Montelibano, Peping Cojuangco, Popoy Juico and Pastor “Boy” Saycon. Wow! Do these lightweights think that they can really take on heavyweights?

    They have the gall and the temerity to badmouth Tarlac Kingpin Peping Cojuangco even when the numbers are there staring them in the face that Roxas won in Tarlac by a margin bigger than the votes Binay got in the province. In Tarlac, Roxas got 317,843 votes versus Binay’s 129,523, a margin of 188,320. Had Peping campaigned for a Noy-Bi tandem, Binay would have easily gotten double his votes in the province.

    These were the very people who tried to surround and dominate Noynoy Aquino and were the ones running the campaign like amateurs when Aquino’s ratings plunged from a high of 60% to a low of 35%. The timely entry of veterans, notably the media team headed by Maria Montelibano, arrested the plunge and helped steer Noynoy to victory.

    Are we surprised that Mar’s ratings also suffered a similar crash? Unfortunately for Mar, it was too late to reverse the downward spiral and arrest the upward trend of Binay. Also, instead of having a team like that of Maria Montelibano to arrest his slide — Mar fell victim to the advice of those in his camp who pushed him to antagonize Maria, the very person who could have helped him.

    Others tend to label this group as The Hyatt 10, the ten members of the Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA) regime who announced their resignations at the Hyatt Hotel after the 2004 election fraud scandal erupted. That is an unfair label. It is true that members of The Hyatt 10 are part of these hate mongers but there are good persons in The Hyatt
    10, like my friend Butch Abad, who are not part of this negativism.

    Noynoy Aquino should be wary of these people who already almost derailed his candidacy and have now brought down Mar Roxas. Judging by the numbers, Noy will be dealing with superior opposition numbers in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. The last thing Noy needs are people with a talent for creating enemies and turning off people.”

    Mainstream Media is owned by the Oligarchs. They control the information. This is the reason the Aquinos are darling of the Media and the Catholic Church. Kris Aquino, is a serial Adulterrer. Did the Media and the Catholic Church raise voices about it? No, Sir… She is the daughter of an Ex President and the sister of the President. Is she a good role model for the young Filipinos? She even gained the SuperStar status in the entertainment world. This is the kind of double standard of morality of the Media and the Catholic Church. They should treat everybody equal. You can easily see the bias here…

  127. Bong,

    As you are consistent and persistent in your condemnation President Aquino, I must offer up the alternative view that favors respect of the democratic process and the voice of the collective citizen represented in Mr. Aquino’s election as President. An aspect of this respect is to separate past from present and to grant the President the latitude both to make mistakes and do things in a way that we might not do them ourselves. The crucial question to me is, “what drives the man and his machine?”, dysfunctional though you may believe the machine to be. Is it good intent for the well-being of Filipinos, or is it substantially self-serving and/or incapable of bringing the Philippines into the modern world, as were the two prior presidential administrations?

    Three weeks is a rush to judgment, I fear, for the most intricate and challenging of jobs in the Philippines. This rush to judgment strikes me as being an “agenda” rather than a fair, careful and rational weighing of good and bad. It is opinion, not analysis. Expectations of perfection also smack of agenda, not consideration of what real life is about.

    It does not take a critic to do a painting; it takes a painter. The critic is only a bystander with a pen, who makes himself relevant or irrelevant depending on the credibility his readers grant. I note that most of the readers here assign credibility to the conclusions of this well-crafted article. I do not. It is too brazen in its hostility and lack of balance and totally missing any inclination of respect for the democratic process and the voice of the collective citizen.

    It does not take a critic to do a painting; it takes a painter.

    But the critic still does the judging… and it is valid.

    the voice of the collective citizen

    is not immune against criticism. Rather it deserves criticism… because it’s also the collective actions of the citizens that mess up society. You can see that in U.S. society too, I’m sure.

  140. Talagang nakakahiya. Arrogant and ignorant. Terrible!

  141. Oh, yeah, if you’re the critic, the artist also has the right to defend their painting and say whether the critic did not get it at all. You seem to fit this kind of critic.

    Whatever your judgment about this article, Joe, it still has the whole truth about what’s happening to the country. Deniers that anything is wrong are just covering up their ears and eyes.

    Noynoy people are confirming once again that they are a cult. Members of a cult are intolerant of people that find fault with their leader and disagrees with them. They wouldn’t engage the arguments because they can’t! They rather dismiss the criticisms as just signs of perceived bitterness. That is not surprising because they themselves are the ones that let their emotions manipulated. It’s sort of a projecting the self on the opponents.

    I’ve heard he’s planning on putting Honasan’s case on review since accusations of him inciting rebellion needs to be “investigated more”. Did I hear that right? Or is Noynoy planning to hold off the sentencing someone who is known for inciting public unrest during the years after the Marcos regime?

    @joe america,

    As you are consistent and persistent in your condemnation President Aquino, I must offer up the alternative view that favors respect of the democratic process and the voice of the collective citizen represented in Mr. Aquino’s election as President.

    respect does not mean immunity to criticism. criticism is separate from and not equal to, condemnation. you should know better than that, joe.

    An aspect of this respect is to separate past from present and to grant the President the latitude both to make mistakes and do things in a way that we might not do them ourselves.

    what a dumb idea. clean slate anyone? any takers? of course the incompetent and the outright corrupt politicians would all raise their hands and love your dumb idea. this is no time to make mistakes, certainly not at the expense of the country.

    The crucial question to me is, “what drives the man and his machine?”, dysfunctional though you may believe the machine to be. Is it good intent for the well-being of Filipinos, or is it substantially self-serving and/or incapable of bringing the Philippines into the modern world, as were the two prior presidential administrations?

    never heard of kamag-anak, inc.? ay nako, not paying attention.

    Three weeks is a rush to judgment, I fear, for the most intricate and challenging of jobs in the Philippines.

    would you rather the critique above be published much much later? that is pointless procrastination that relieves noynoy the pressure of doing his job properly. another dumb idea.

    This rush to judgment strikes me as being an “agenda” rather than a fair, careful and rational weighing of good and bad.

    you’re probably the dumbest smart guy i know, joe, because between what you’re pushing and bongv’s in-your-face take on this administration’s clumsiness, your whining smacks of agenda all the way. hello? “give the guy a break, give him latitude to make mistakes,” etcetera – you’re the one lacking a fair, careful and rational weighing of good and bad.

    It is opinion, not analysis.

    of course, that’s YOUR unreliable opinion (not analysis).

    Expectations of perfection also smack of agenda, not consideration of what real life is about.

    you give noy too much credit. between zero and perfection, he’s somewhere equal to your score for consistency. we all know where that is.:mrgreen:

    It does not take a critic to do a painting; it takes a painter.

    what rock have you been living in? it takes ANOTHER PERSON to call something a painting, even if it looks like baby vomit stain. that other person need not be a critic, yet have an opinion anyway. grasp that?

    The critic is only a bystander with a pen, who makes himself relevant or irrelevant depending on the credibility his readers grant. I note that most of the readers here assign credibility to the conclusions of this well-crafted article. I do not.

    we who disagree with you could not care less. ap has been taking many unpopular positions on different issues, and i’m sure the authors do so regardless of your view of them.

    It is too brazen in its hostility and lack of balance and totally missing any inclination of respect for the democratic process and the voice of the collective citizen.

    now THAT claim is downright IRRESPONSIBLE, and let me tell you why.

    respect for the democratic process is not the same as an absence of criticism or lack of a critical eye. respect for the democratic process is allowing me to tell you to get professional help, much the same way as it is allowing you to express your infantile view of democracy everytime you so please.

    lack of balance? lack of balance is cutting noynoy a break. lack of balance is your mentality of “hey criticizing noynoy is condemning him.” lack of balance is moderation we ap dwellers experienced in that dumb blog we used to duke it out in.

    hostility? towards stupidity, sure. because we know you can do better than that. yet you choose to be blind to what they’re already telling you. (and i gotta say, ap authors have excellent communication skills, so if you’re not getting it while so many do, tsk tsk tsk.) besides, a lot of times they’re just assertive like many visitors and commenters, but they’re not necessarily hostile. if you have a problem with that you could always wallow in the serotonin-dipped love-in at your harmonious old tambayan to keep nick company. :mrgreen:

    Oh wait, it was Trillanes, my bad. But still the point stands.

  168. famous wolf permalink

    I’m just saying why does he need to act like a benevolent god towards people that were incarcerated for purely legitimate reasons? He wants to be viewed as a servant leader, but acts more like a court jester on pertaining to issues that REALLY matter such as privatized armies and land reform. I don’t get it, it’s like shaking hands with the devil on the left and making deals with Satan on the right.

  169. Fits his “anti-corruption” stance too. hehehe

    These are people who are above the law. They are rich and they are in power. Is this what we call Democracy – EDSA Democracy? What a deception and delusion we are in. People put their lives in jeopardy to put these kinds of people in power.

    Exactly. The people that voted for him blamed every misery on corruption as if they are oppressed, thus faultless. Noynoy knows he is incapable of leading the country, yet he exploited emotions to make up for the lack of talent. Now people are reaping the rewards of their choice and Noynoy must prepare for the fury of the wronged lover.

  178. Bong,

    As you are consistent and persistent in your condemnation President Aquino

    I disagree, I am consistent in identifying GAFFEs. It’s not like I imagined the Gaffes, I didn’ make them – Aquino did – it’s all in the headlines. Are you saying identifying gaffes is CONDEMNATION? That’s quite a stretch. Ridiculous

    I must offer up the alternative view that favors respect of the democratic process and the voice of the collective citizen represented in Mr. Aquino’s election as President.

    You mean the minority 15 million voters who want Aquino to lord it over the other 85 million Filipinos? In case you didn’t notice – a minority president which results from the IDIOTIC, MORONIC, STUPID 1987 AQUINO CONSTITUTION – doesn’t do justice to the word – “majority rule” in the truest sense of the word .

    As to you offering your views – no one’s stoppping you.

    An aspect of this respect is to separate past from present and to grant the President the latitude both to make mistakes and do things in a way that we might not do them ourselves.

    The latitude to make mistakes – how about you have a heart bypass Joe and give your surgeon the latitude of doing a mistake wanna roll the dice? Are you out of your freaking mind?

    The crucial question to me is, “what drives the man and his machine?”, dysfunctional though you may believe the machine to be. Is it good intent for the well-being of Filipinos, or is it substantially self-serving and/or incapable of bringing the Philippines into the modern world, as were the two prior presidential administrations?

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I look at RESULTS – not intentions. Thus, far the you can see the RESULTS of “good” intentions – MORONIC.

    Three weeks is a rush to judgment, I fear, for the most intricate and challenging of jobs in the Philippines. This rush to judgment strikes me as being an “agenda” rather than a fair, careful and rational weighing of good and bad. It is opinion, not analysis. Expectations of perfection also smack of agenda, not consideration of what real life is about.

    On the contrary, prior to running for the Presidency, the candidate ought to have preesented a plan on what’s going to happen within the next 100 days of his presidency – it was observed even by independent news sources like Time and Wall Street that Aquino had no plans at all – and everyone is asking – what’s the plan.

    You don’t make a plan during the 1st three weeks. You make your plan before the elections – as was the case of Gordon or Perlas for that matter. But no, idiots just had to flash an L-sign and a yellow t-shirt as a substitute. Well that’s you get – you break it, you own it.

    It does not take a critic to do a painting; it takes a painter. The critic is only a bystander with a pen, who makes himself relevant or irrelevant depending on the credibility his readers grant.

    There’s criticism based on facts – and criticism based on delusion. The facts will speak for themselves.

    I note that most of the readers here assign credibility to the conclusions of this well-crafted article. I do not. It is too brazen in its hostility and lack of balance and totally missing any inclination of respect for the democratic process and the voice of the collective citizen.

    Your opinion is NOTED.

    As to lack of balance – hey, go to Filipino Voices.com and sing Kumbaya. Or write in your blog about how wonderful Aquino is – let the market decide. if the market agrees with you – I will not lose sleep over it. it’s a free country joe. Inasmuch as you have the right to say what you want – I,too have the right to say what I want. If we happen to agree to disagree that’s that – not a bigge.

    But for the meantime, I disagree that listing the facts is HOSTILITY – not to mention the reply is irrelevant and is unable to dispute the sequence of events that show a consistent puttern of muddleheadedness, incompetence and lack of focus.

    As to the democratic process – the Philippine elections is anything BUT democratic – not the way voters were disenfranchised, not to mention the missing component of enlightened voters.

    As JFK pointed out:

    * A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

    * Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.

    * Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.

    * Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.

    * For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.

    * History is a relentless master. It has no present, only the past rushing into the future. To try to hold fast is to be swept aside.

    * I’m an idealist without illusions.

    * Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

    * Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.

    * The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.

    * There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.

    * Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.

    * Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

    * We must use time as a tool, not as a couch

    * Too often we… enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

    * The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.

    * When written in Chinese, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.

    Hey Joe America:

    It’s very easy to have opinions. However, it is hard to form opinions that make sense. If you have some horse sense; you can see how sensible a Blogger’s opinion/ analysis is: by the sensible content of his/her Blogs. Great ideas came from opinions. The Athenian Greeks, had the opinion of a Democratic government. The English ruled by Monarchy, picked it, forced their King to sign the Magna Carta; that the Americans derived their Constitution. Same as any Philosophies, Sciences, Discoveries, and other Advances of mankind. What would had happened to us; if we had just stayed believing the World is Flat. And, anybody, contradicting the teachings of the Catholic Church is burned on stake. Revolutionary thoughts; revolutionary opinions; revolutionary Blogs are the demands of the day…it is the march of progress. Anybody, has a say in how his/her country is governed! Better watch out…imbecile Noynoy Aquino…the Bloggers will be like mosquitos biting you everywhere, including your Dumb Ass…

    One Big Ass Mistake Philippines!!

  193. The Politics

    as pointed out by the supporters of Roxas, the SWS survey which showed Binay tied up with their vice presidential candidate was conducted before Roxas obtained the backing of Pastor Apollo Quiboloy’s Kingdom of Jesus Christ which claims to have a six million strong membership. More importantly, he also got the endorsement of the influential Iglesia ni Cristo religious sect whose members have proven to vote as a bloc and could easily bring in three to four million votes for the national candidate their support. – SO NO – The SWS survey is kinda questionable.

    The Science

    The margin of error is a statistic expressing the amount of random sampling error in a survey’s results. The larger the margin of error, the less faith one should have that the poll’s reported results are close to the “true” figures; that is, the figures for the whole population.

    Statistical tie” and “statistical dead heat” are sometimes used to describe reported percentages that differ by less than a margin of error, but these terms can be misleading

    Wikipedia Citation
    – Braiker, Brian. “The Race is On: With voters widely viewing Kerry as the debate’s winner, Bush’s lead in the NEWSWEEK poll has evaporated”. MSNBC, October 2, 2004. Retrieved on 2 February 2007.

    – Rogosa, D.R. (2005). A school accountability case study: California API awards and the Orange County Register margin of error folly. In R.P. Phelps (Ed.), Defending standardized testing (pp. 205–226). Mahwah, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

    For one thing, the margin of error as generally calculated is applicable to an individual percentage and not the difference between percentages, so the difference between two percentage estimates may not be statistically significant even when they differ by more than the reported margin of error. The survey results also often provide strong information even when there is not a statistically significant difference.

    When comparing percentages, it can accordingly be useful to consider the probability that one percentage is higher than another

    Wikipedia Citation
    – Drum, Kevin. Political Animal, Washington Monthly, August 19, 2004. Retrieved on 15 February 2007.

    In simple situations, this probability can be derived with 1) the standard error calculation introduced earlier, 2) the formula for the variance of the difference of two random variables, and 3) an assumption that if anyone does not choose Binay they will choose Roxas, and vice versa; they are perfectly negatively correlated. This may not be a tenable assumption when there are more than two possible poll responses. For more complex survey designs, different formulas for calculating the standard error of difference must be used.

    This is a very dangerous example that the Lopez Media Network has taken: selectively picking up news, favourable to Noynoy Aquino, during the election. And protecting him, from lively debates against his opponents. It is some sort of: controlling the true informations, to present to the public.
    What is the difference, between the Media in: North Korea, Iran, Cuba, other dictatorial countries…from our Media.
    Nothing… except those dictatorial countries do it: in overt way. The Lopez Media network does it: in covert way. This is the reason the imbecile, Noynoy Aquino was elected. They rammed him down to the gullible Filipino voters throats with: EDSA nostalgia; biased surveys; Democracy premises; parents were heroes; controlling the internet and Blog Sites with paid Hackers; hiring unabashed bought Journalists to sing praises to Noynoy Aquino in the Blogs; selecting favourable news pertaining to Noynoy Aquino; etc…This is a very dangerous precedent. More dangerous than Marcos control of the Media, during Martial Law…Please take note fellow Bloggers…

    Bong,

    Wrong statement. Noynoy should say, “I am not an Aquino!” In the the Philippines, the house of Aquino carries more weight than the house of El. If you remember the buildup prior to May, the way the Aquino name was promoted during the elections, you would’ve thought Ninoy and Cory can be used in exorcisms and anting antings. Heck, look at Kris. Even with STD and failed relationships, she’s still a sought-after Pinay.

    If our baby president gets tired of playing with his baby steering wheel and realizes that he won’t be cute forever, he’ll see the error of his ways.

    Anywyay, I’d love to be optimistic for a change. I think there’s some yellow ganja in Manila.

    Cheers!

So, no lessons from the coup’d’etats during his Mom’s days? Pathetic that he is so gung-ho to liberate this guy, just so he could have the numbers in the Senate..

    @bong

    i appreciate your adding the somewhat lengthly wiki article on statistical significance. none of matters tho.

    1) whether or not they polled the final pre-elections poll BEFORE or AFTER quiboloy is irrelevant to the fact that “SWS got it wrong” daw. they didnt. end of story.

    2) from wiki: [sorry for the funky formatting]

    Poll source Date(s) conducted Sample
    size Margin of
    error Binay Chipeco Fernando Legarda Manzano Roxas Sonza Yasay Other Undec
    SWS May 2–3 2,400 ±2% 37.2 0.2 4 12 3 37 0.3 1 6

    for the final poll, binay was actually leading with the point estimate — but its still a “statistical tie” [see (3) below]

    3) the interpretation of statistical margin of error is important. the idea by kevin drum is true: what we want is to answer the question “is the difference between binay and roxas>0?” to answer that, we need a formula for the standard error of the difference. what is the formula? it depends on the value of the correlation… the standard error will be smaller the LARGER THE NEGATIVE CORRELATION. Perfect Negative correlation here means if binay gets 1% more votes, roxas gets 1% lower votes.

    now, the point is simply this: if the difference is less than the sum of the errors, then we CANNOT SAY WITH 100% CERTAINTY that one is leading the other. We can say probability statements (i.e. binay is likely to win, in this case), but NOT with 100% certainty.

    this “less than 100% certainty” issue is mitigated by negative correlation. but is helped by negative correlation.

    also note that it is DIFFICULT to know what the correlation is, EVEN WITH ONLY 2 CANDIDATES. even with two candidates, perfect negative correlation is possible ONLY IF turnout is constant.

    if there are more than 2 candidates, correlation becomes even more dicey.

    THUS, the reason why it is frequently assumed that there is ZERO CORRELATION is due to being conservative. its a MUCH TOUGHER STATISTICAL TEST if the its harder to pass it.

    so a higher error is often the one cited, for the sake of being conservative.

  208. @GabbyD

    1.On the contrary – by not conducting another survey after the Quiboloy and INC pronouncement – SWS cannot establish with finality that Binay had the lead – that Roxas was indeed not cheated. if I use your logic of just sticking to one instance of the survey I can also use another instance of the timeline where Roxas is leading and say the instance you referred to is questionable – and flawed. YOU MISS THE POINT.

    2. True – Binay was leading in the point estimate – but still making it a “statistical tie” – did the media include the caveat? NO – They were too busy manufacturing a TREND. Drum’s point is still TRUE.

    3 – Which brings it BACK to the ORIGINAL POINT – You miss the forest for the TREES – This situation – Roxas and Binay is just one of those😆

    Noytards: Walang Tubiggg!!!! Kasalanan to ni GMA!!!!

  210. Ah, yes, Memorandum Circular No. 1… and No. 1 (Revised). Hahahahaha.

    I remember, leading into those last few days of June, I was telling the staff, “come July 1, Mabini Hall (where the majority of the staff of Malacañang, or at least the OP, are housed) will be a ghost town.” Up until the very last moment, we didn’t see anything done to address the fact that over 70% of the building’s occupants would have to leave alongside the President they served.

    Then, Memo Circular No. 1. And then No. 1 (Revised).

    I actually had a scowl when I was told about No. 1 (Revised). I was seriously looking to my first real vacation since working with and/or for government starting from 2000.

    But wait! There’s more!

    During this Monday’s flag ceremony at the Palace, I overheard that one of the offices of the OP (sorry, I forgot which one; I think it was the “household” staff) was SUDDENLY GIVEN THE AXE. As in, walang pasintabi, no advance notice to vacate their office on this coming date and please make sure all accountables are accounted for. They were told that their services were terminated starting July 15.

    I also overheard that they’re still thinking whether or not to pay the salaries of the co-terminus staff, especially the ones whose offices technically ceased to exist when Gloria left Malacañang, but we HAD TO REPORT TO WORK because of that revised (what word did Lacierda use again? Make it more efficient?) Memo Circular.

    Please understand that some offices in the OP – like ours, in Political Coalition Affairs – had our ENTIRE INVENTORY OF EQUIPMENT moved out of the office even before June 30. Hell, they took away my office PC sometime after June 15. Thank God may table and chair pa ko, hahahaha.

    I also heard an issue about the release of authorization for the use of government funds since, apparently, di pa aayos yung signatories with the Landbank. That happens, salaries and payables of and by government WILL get delayed.

    I was thinking… he (Noynoy) already knew, not more than a week after the closing of precincts last May 10, that he was going to be President. There was even that Transition Team, right?

    So what the F, pardon my abridged French, were they doing? Why is the Aquino Regime V. 2.0 (and not necessarily better, it seems) NOT READY to take over?

    Say what you will about Obama, to whom Noynoy has been compared by his cultists, but Barack began working almost immediately after getting elected, months before he even took his oath. He was at least prepared with the basic infrastructure of his administration the minute his predecessor left.

    Eh etong si P-Noy?

    Sheesh.
