Eleksyon 2010

I was searching for James Fallows’ article A Damaged Culture earlier today for a paper I need to write when I stumbled on his latest article.  Interestingly, it was about the Philippines, particularly Noynoy Aquino and his family’s position about Hacienda Luisita. Nalimutan ko na nga yung sinulat nya noong 1987 pero nung binasa ko, halos ganito pa din ang sitwasyon sa Pinas hanggang ngayon. Yung mga mayayaman pa rin ang lalong yumayaman at lalong lumalaki ang agwat ng mahihirap sa mayayaman. I’m not against Noynoy Aquino nor am I endorsing him. I just find it ironic that when he decided to run for president, he was promising change and hope for the people. Tapos ngayon lumalabas na mukhang hanggang salita lang pala siya tungkol dito? Susmiyo. At kung may delicadeza si Kris, sana ay mag-resign sya sa mga programa nya dahil nagiging melodramatic at comedic ang kampanya ng kuya nya dahil sa kanya.  I was 13 when Cory became the President and I have full admiration for the limited reforms she introduced during her term. She could not undo 20 years of dictatorship, as many observed. But it seems that her children have not carried on hers and Ninoy’s love for the nation. Sana lumabas ngayon ang mga tunay na kwentong nagpapakita ng tunay na serbisyo ni Noynoy (at ni Kris) sa bayan. Please Kris, sana naman huwag kang masyadong magyabang sa mga programa mo. Alam na ng buong bayan kung gaano ka/kayo kayaman, samantalang kami nagugutom at naghihirap.
