I wrote MANY TIMES IN THE PAST. There is no comparing the 1986 Edsa “revolution” to ANY of the subsequent “people power” “revolutions” that followed. NO COMPARING.
Y’all know why?
It’s because, no one bozo instigated the 1986 version. And now here we have the son of of an Aquino PRESUMING to engineer one artifiicially LOOONG before there is even the SLIGHTEST INDICATION that one is really “necessary”.
For that matter are Edsa “revolutions” necessary?
The concept of these idiotic exercises being “necessary” is itself an OXYMORON — an idea that was successfully implanted into the vacuous minds of the Filipino by the clever marketing of the Philippine Media and echoed by a horde of traditional political “experts” that infest the national “debate”.
The only REAL necessary thing in Pinoy society is a renewed focus on the strengthening of insitutions and legitimate processes. However way they be flawed, PROGRESS should be measured in how less flawed they PROGRESSIVELY become as years go by.
If say they are 90% flawed TODAY, then that SIMPLY MEANS that we aspire for a 10% flaw goal, say in 2016 (which, by the way, is the year that whoever will be elected in May should be submitting to the people an ACHIEVEMENT report). And given such a hypothetical goal, we should be aspiring for 70% flawed in 2011, 50% flawed in 2012, 25% flawed in 2012, and so on and so forth. Those who habitually exercise a bit of brain will catch my drift there.
That is how a REAL leader should regard CHALLENGES, Mr Benigno Noynoy “Aquino” III.
Instead of being constructive in regarding our flawed institutions, Mr Noynoy “Aquino”, here is how you plan to behave:
“If we have a correct counting of the votes, I think we will be very victorious,” said Aquino, whose mother toppled dictator Ferdinand Marcos amid protests that followed a rigged election in 1986. If “the people’s will is frustrated,” demonstrations could make this month’s protests in Thailand seem “mild” by comparison, he said in an interview in Manila yesterday.
Are you in effect WISHING an ill wind to blow across an already ILL society?
Mr BongV says “Looking at the bright side – AP will have a lot of stuff to write about if Aquino wins”,
I second that statement Mr Noynoy “Aquino”. Mark my word:
Your administration — if you grab that seat in Malacanang in whatever way you plan to after May of 2010 — will be the Years of Glory for AntiPinoy.com and the rest of the GRP Network.
We will be watching and we will provide our readers with the right approach to SCRUTINISING, EVALUATING, and HOLDING your administration and your cronies in the Philippine Media to ACCOUNT. You will be REPORTING to us, our readers, and the rest of the more than 60 percent of Filipino voters who will be voting AGAINST you this coming May. Indeed, the latter is a FACT according, that is, to these “surveys” you yourself (and your cadre of vacuous misguided disciples) keep bandying around.
That‘s how someone sitting in an office not suited for him behaves, Mr Noynoy “Aquino”.
