Why I am ashamed (read: disgusted) of the Philippine government

Ipinsagmamalaki ko na ako’y isang Pilipino, ngunit ikinahihiya (kinasusuklaman) ko ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas. (I’m proud to be a Filipino, but I’m ashamed (read: disgusted) of the Philippine government)

The administration of President BS Aquino is following a straight path (daang matuwid) in making the country prosper. Sounds too good to be true, right?

Right. A group of individuals called whistleblowers bravely exposed massive corruption under Pres. BS Aquino’s administration that involves a number of legislators, both from the upper (senate) and lower (house of representatives) house of congress. But wait, there’s more. Some people said that Pres. BS Aquino’s Disbursement Acceleration Program is unconstitutional. But the guy behind the straight path proved them wrong. October 30 of last year, he gave out speech that belied accusations that DAP is unconstitutional. So, it’s not illegal after all, since it was the president himself who signed it and the budget was approved by Budget sec. Butch Abad who even defended the legality his approval of the disbursement of the Filipino people’s money.

One of the fund’s beneficiary, instead of the Filipino people, is Janet Lim Napoles (no need to link to an external site because only a caveman is unfamiliar of her). She is the one they call ‘the’ Pork barrel queen. But she wouldn’t have been the pork barrel queen without Butch A bad teaching her the in’s-and-out’s of setting up a foundation to earn money.

Lo and behold, the Supreme Court ruled DAP as unconstitutional. This will then pave the way for impeachment cases against the president. Hopefully this will not be maneuvered by the administration as they hold numbers in terms of ally headcount in the congress.

The promise of a good governance by the Aquino administration now looms as another false hope. More of an illusion. They have launched an active campaign to prosecute legislators who apparently misalocated their PDAF when the president himself appears to be guilty as well. And as far as I’m aware of, if a government official failed to defend the constitution or acts contrary to it, taxpayers have the right to unseat them. Hopefully, the court proceedings will not be manipulated by the allies of the ruling party.

In other news, Filipina actress Nora Aunor (known as the Superstar of Philippine cinema) was removed from the list of individuals being considered to be awarded as National Artists. This was due to previous reports that she allegedly used illegal drugs. If this is the case, then Pres. BS Aquino and Butch A bad should also be removed from the government by way of impeachment as their ‘brainchild’ (DAP) is unconstitutional.
