Halimaw sa talahiban

Panay ang sayaw ng mga talahib sa alinduyong ng ihip ng  malamig na hanging nanunot sa buto, tila bang may ipinapahiwatig na kung anong kababalaghang tumatagos sa sinag ng buwan. Napansin ni Milagring ang biglang pagsulpot ng mga paniki mula sa yungib, balahibo niya sa batok ay biglang nagsitindigan, takot ay dahan-dahang gumagapang sa kanyang dibdib habang ulo niya ay nakasubsob sa braso ni Pedring , mga brasong handa siyang ipaglaban hanggang kamatayan, kulay ng  mga brasong halatang laging hinahagkan ng langit. Nasa gitna sila ng talahiban na mismo ay saksi sa pag-alay niya ng kanyang pagkababae sa pinakamamahal  na kasintahan , ngayon ay ang kanilang sagradong tagpuan tuwing lumiliwanag ang buwan , muli at muli ay kanayng I alay ang buo niyang katawan sa dambana ng kaligayahan hanggang sabay nilang marating ang rurok ng makamundong pagnanasa.

Lalong lumalamig ang ihip ng hangin na may kasamang munting tinig ng halinghing, hindi alintana ng dalagita ang biglaang pagbilog at paglaki ng mga mata ng kasintahan , pangitain ay tila hindi makapaniwala sa nakikita, sandali ay kumurap siya, sa wari niya ay produkto lamang ng kanyang kathang isip ito, marahil ay isang halusinasyon o isang guni-guni lamang. Muling  idinilat ang mga mata ngunit ay mas lalo siyang nasindak sa nakikita, tuloy takot ay kumaripas na todo sa kanyang mga kaugatan, laman niya ay nanginginig sa takot. Isang hindi pangkaraniwang asuwang ang lumulutang sa ibabaw ng talahiban, kulay nito ay nog-nog, sariwang dugo ay tumutulo pa sa gilid ng kanyang labi,mga matang nanlilisik ay may lumalagablab na matinding pagka-ganid, budhi ay nangingitim sa labis na kasamaan. Mga pangil ay lalong tumutulis sa pagsisinungaling , panlilinlang at pagsasamantala sa kahinaan ng sambayanan. Kanyang kanang kamay ay hawak pa ang dumudugong puso mula sa dibdib ng isang paslit na nakahandusay sa  plemas ng  kahirapan dahil sa matinding pandarambong sa kaban ng Makati noong siya ay Alkalde pa ng lungsod at pandsurugas sa kaban ng bayan bilang pangalawang pangulo. Utak ng mga kabataan ay tinatanggalan ng dugo hanggang sa matuyo at kinabukasan nila ay mabura ng tuluyan.

Hindi pa nasiyahan sa paglapa ng kanyang mga biktima sa  bid-rigging at overpricing  ng mga gusali sa Makati. Nagikot-ikot siya at nasilyan ang isang  lalakeng madaling utuin, boto niya ay madaling bilhin, agad na nilapa,  agaran ring lumipad na ang kaliwang kamay ay may hawak  pa ng  bitukang gutay-gutay, namumutla dahil  bawat patak ng dugo ay sinisipsip at bawat butil ng bigas  sa loob nito ay sinunggaban pa hanggang wala ng matira  para sa mga maralita.Opportunista at labis ang kasakiman ng malignong ito, kahit si Satanas ay takot siyang harapin kung kaya ang kanyang sungay ay bumabaluktot na sa kasamaan at ang kulay ng kanyang budhi ay sukdulan ang pagkaitim, kahit paliguan man ng litro-litrong clorox ay sadyang hindi kayang paputiin pa.

ma pa rin ng mga pilipinong nakabulagta na sa matinding karukhaan

Tunggalian

Datapuwa at may bagsik ang bawat hampas ng alon sa luntiang dalampasigan ng Boracay tulad ng bagsik ng tunggalian sa pagitan ni Bise-Presidente Jejomar Binay laban kay Ginoong Ernesto Mercado, matalik na kaibigan at may mga matitibay na ebidensyang magpapatunay na ang Bise-Presidente ay dawit sa mga katiwaliang nagsanhi ng pagyanig sa sitemang pulitikal ng bansa, dinurog ang tiwala sa pamahalaan.Buhat ng sumiklab ang bakbakan nila, ang pangunahing salarin ay ang taumbayan, kumukulo ang labanan na tila ay walang kahupaan, nagdudurugan ng pagkatao na parang mga loro sa telebisyon,radyo o social media. Sa wari ko ay nagkamli  ang dakilang manunulat na si Charles Darwin na nagsaad na ang tao ay mula  sa  unggoy, ang dalawang ito ay panay ang salita, sigurado ako na ang tao ay nanggaling sa loro.

Ang tensyon ay lalong kumulo, hinamon ni Ginoong Ernesto Mercado ang ating Bise-Presidente sa isang pampublikong debate para malaman ng mamamyang pilipino kung sino ang nagsasabi ng katotohanan at kasinungalingan. Ngunit ay naduwag si Ginoong Jejomar Binay, ikinukubli ang mga totoong alegasyon ng pandurugas sa kaban ng bayan sa likod ng kasinungalingan at sa halip ay walang humpay ang pangangampanya , inuuto ang mga masang walang pinag-aralan dahil sa kakapusan, ito ay lantarang pagnanakaw ng mga boto, pinagsasamantalahan ang kamangmangan ng mga mahihirap, ang masaklap pa ay ang pangalawang pangulo  ay siya mismong nanglalabag ng mga batas ng COMELEC dahil sa maagang pangangampanya.

Ang karuwagang harapin ang umuusig ay isang patunay na ang mga akusasyon ng pandurugas sa kaban ng bayan ay pawang mga katotohanan, ninanakaw ang mga pangarap ng mga mahihirap na nais guminhawa ang pamumuhay, dinudurog ang pag-asang maka-ahon sa kahirapan at ito ay isang napaka-pait na gamot na piliting lulunin ng bawat Juan sa Pilipinas.

THE PHILIPPINES BEYOND 2016!!!!

To start with everything, this article is written by a poetic soul with an ever escalating disgust with the current political status quo. I, like you, am very sick and tired with the uncontrollable spread of poverty which directly has a deeper impact to our families due to formidable corruption that afflicts our society. It is an infectious disease that day by day undresses our dignity as human beings, this needs to be addressed through non-violent protest or through revolution.
The accusations of massive graft and corruption in a grand scale which are beyond probable statistical comprehension such as bid-rigging, overpricing , amassing enormous kickbacks from several Makati projects , hidden wealth that is worth billions of pesos and rampant thievery that have been hurled against the Vice President proved to be true since those allegations were exposed by his closest ally, Mr. Ernesto Mercado , a credible witness with proper documents as evidence to substantiate his charges . These factual testimonies intensify nauseating public exasperation , losing trust on the government and effectively persuade the constituents to overthrow such a government that is infested with unbearable greed of wealth for selfish glorification.
Despite of these authentic accusations, most Filipinos remain passive , unperturbed , wholeheartedly accepted the abuses and political swindling which are detrimental to the future of this country . Thus, I believe that Jejomar Binay’s Presidency on 2016 is inevitable. His uncanny political scheme is just exceptional that can’t be compared to any political figures which is practically demonstrated by his adamant refusal to face the Senate since he knew that it will be the death of his Presidential ambition due to the fact that the evidence that will be presented against him would magnify the magnitude of his corruption. Instead he chose to hop from one province to another for an early campaign as a political machinery to get an edge from his political opponents. Through deceptive political propaganda he can win the hearts of the masses for his own political ends. By travelling to a city whose political leader is an ardent anti – Pnoy administration such as Mayor Romualdez of Tacloban City , accused of hijacking rehabilitation efforts despite the fact that his city was hit the hardest during the onslaught of Typhoon Yolanda in order to stimulate public hatred against the administration . In a place such like this, his criticisms against the current administration , no matter if they are destructive propaganda or lies might appear to be true to the listeners. An effective tool to strengthen and widen an electoral base to fish for more votes. The saddest truth is that, he has been criticizing the administration which he, himself is part of it, instead of conveying recommendations to enhance more the proposed programs for the welfare of the people, he has been criticizing them behind the President’s back. It is betrayal under the broad daylight. Isn’t it ?
Sad to say that the Philippines is a failed state where the democratic loopholes are constantly abused by the cunning politicians to rob taxpayer’s money and to get away from crimes. The society is infected by a chronic disease of social insanity which made the people apathetic towards the soaring numbers of evidence charged against the Vice President, from big-time robbery of the national coffer to rebellion that are worth revolting yet he still has an ever growing public support from the less educated masses that constitute the majority in the society because he won their hearts by deceiving them through pretending to be a poor man which definitely would identify himself to be one of them while he is living like a king in Hacienda Binay in Rosario, Batangas that time and again he denied owning it. Since the masses do not understand the sanctity of election as an effective transportation for economic development to uplift them from poverty and so their immature democratic consciousness can easily be blinded by deceptive propaganda, their allegiance can be manipulated by vote-buying in exchange of rice, sardines and small amount of money. Do not laugh on one of the most ridiculous political comedies that was shown on the blanket of our political reality. Ex-President Joseph Estrada, a convicted plunderer won the mayoralty bid in Manila last election and that was unthinkable.
Despite of those factual testimonies from credible witnesses aired on televisions, radios and social media, Binay’s Presidency is inevitable, a gruesome scenario is expected to happen, party members of UNA, his allies, exemplified by Senator Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. and Senator Jinggoy Estrada who are currently languishing in respective jails, believed to be filthy rich individuals, definitely will provide huge amount of financial assistance to the Presidential campaign of Mr. Jejomar Binay to buy the allegiance of local political figures from the Ilocos Region to Zamboanga Peninsula and to buy the votes of the hungry poor masses to ensure his victory in exchange of political pardon. Another reason, these two Senators used to be popular movie actors whose fans are numbering in millions and automatically would vote for Jejomar Binay who for them is a savior to set their movie idols free, it does not really matter even if he is a deceiver , a liar, a plunderer and a leader who does not have the ability to move this country forward. The mediocrity and the naivete’ of the ill-informed voters will be the lethal weapons of the Vice President to have an edge against his political opponents, his effective tools to wield political power and powerful instruments to achieve his presidential ambition.

The Presidency of Jejomar Binay will be the darkest moment on our political history, worst than Ex-President Ferdinand Marcos ( World-Class Plunderer), EX-President Joseph Estrada ( Convicted Plunderer ) and Ex-President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo ( Convicted Criminal and Plunderer ) combined. Unquestionable, his bureaucratic organizations will be infested with his political allies who do not have the capacity, intelligence and qualities to veer this country towards economic development but they will be leading several public offices to enrich themselves while millions of Filipino will be left dying in hunger.

The quality of education will experience the sharpest decline because the proposed budget to enhance the educational system will be pocketed and the overpriced Makati Science High School testifies this notion.

His administration will ignite geo-political crisis due to the fact that he is a very corrupt man, without honor and dignity, he can easily be bought by the Chinese Businessmen to abrogate VFA which will weaken the country’s national defense and security, a very sweet invitation for Chinese invasion since China’s demand for fossil fuel and natural gas is rising rapidly to feed her growing industries , inevitably, she will occupy Spratly unilaterally since beneath these islands are huge deposits of fossil fuel and natural gas.
He will stimulate civil war in Mindanao, undoubtedly, he will repeal the current peace agreement between the Government and MILF and reappoint Nur Misuari as the new political leader because he and the former were once classmates and closer allies. This will be a powder keg , the beginning of continuous bloodshed among the Mindanaoans. Remember that at the height of Zamboanga Siege last year, when he knew that the MNLF fighters were about to lose the war, he went straight to Zamboanga City to offer ceasefire without considering that too many civilians had already died. He came as a nuisance which sparked public uproar when everybody supported the Pnoy’s all out war against the looters , it did illuminate his real personality that validated the idea that his allegiance was not for the Republic Of The Philippines but towards the pseudo-rebels whose aims were to loot the central bank and rape our innocent women. It did created a notion that perhaps he had a part of that Siege to divert the public attention from PDAF scandal which involved Senator Juan Ponce Enrile who is his closest ally in the House of Senate.
Series of coup d’ etat will rock the country because disgruntled officers will take arms to overthrow a corrupt political system and the corrupt administration of Mr. Jejomar Binay will be the most effective recruiters of rebels from the various sectors of the society who will spark bloody revolution for a social change.

Responsible citizens must organize to oust the Vice President and stop him from coveting the Presidency through peaceful protest or violent demonstrations.Patriotic individuals should educate the masses regarding the political swindling that has been robbing taxpayer’s money and disseminate information that would discourage the majority to vote for a thief. Perhaps these will save us from poverty and hunger.

GIRIAN

Maliban na lamang sa malamig na ihip ng hanging amihang nagdadala ng nginig ay naglalagablab ang girian sa pagitan ng kampon Bise Presidente at  Senador Antonio Trillanes , Senador  Alan Peter Cayetano at mga makabayang Pilipino. Nagbabaga and tunggalian na lalong pinalaki ang  sugat ng lipunang Pilipino , walang patid sa pagdurugo at tuluyang nahahati ang buong bansa  sa digmaan ng kabutihan laban sa kasamaan. Matatalas ang mga dalang sandata ng mga kampon ng Bise-Presidente, lalong pinapatulis ng kasiningalingang walang humpay na sinasaksak at  sinasampal ang bayan , ibig iwaglit sa isipan ng bawat pilipino ang wagas na pagdarambong ni Ginoong  Jejomar Binay sa kaban ng bayan , tila ay walang hangganang panlilinlang sa madlang pilipino na araw – araw ay ginagahasa ng matinding kurapsyon. Samantala ay walang  kapaguran namang ibinubunyag ng mga Senador ang  matinding pandurugas , pinupukaw ang makabayang damdamin ng lipunang tila ay mahimbing na natutulog sa ilalim ng  butas – butas na atip. Lingid sa kanilang kaalaman na ang bawat butil ng bigas mula sa kanilang kaban ay ninanakaw , unti – unting dinudurog ang kanilang dangal , hinuhubaran ng saplot ang kanilang kinabukasan hanggang sila ay magising ng tuliro, bawat hibla ng kanilang buhay ay wawasakin ng delubyo ng pandarambong.

Nakakalungkot isispin na  sa lantarang pananaksil ng Bise-Presidente na tila ay tinataga ng itak ang moralidad ng lipunan ay nananatiling walang imik ang bawat pilipino, kusang tinatanggap ang pang-aabuso  na binubug-bog  ng panamantala  ang kanilang tiwala. Ngunit ang mas nakaklungkot na ang mga taga-pagsalita ng Bise – Presidente sa katauhan ni Ginoong Toby Tiangco at Ginoong Junvic Remulla na pawang mula sa mga prestiyosong pamantasan ay tila nagbubulag-bulagan,  inilalayo ang bayan sa tunay na isyu upang ikubli ang  kasindak – sindak  na krimen ng kanilang pinuno na kung ilang bilyones na ang nakulimbat mula sa buwis ng mga maralita. Ito ay ang pinaka- malagim na kabanata sa kasaysayang pulitikal ng Pilipinas na kahit ang mga taong may sinasabi sa lipunan ay nagpapagamit sa mga mandarambong  na kapalit ay kakaunting salapi at ipinagkanulo ang bayan sa pangil ng kahirapan. Marahil dahil sa matinding kahirapan at ang moralidad ng bawat nilalang ay tila unti-unting naagnas sa libingan ng nagliliyab na apoy ng pananaksil.

Panawagan sa natutulog na mga Pilipino , ito ay sukdulang panlilinlang sa atin na ang nakasalalay ay ang ating kinabukasan  at ng ating magiging mga anak , lantarang tayong dinudugasan  ng mga budol-budol  na mga kampon ng Bise- Presidente , dinudungisan ang ating karangalan na tila ay tinatapakan ang ating pagkatao. Ang panahon ng paghihimagsik laban sa matinding pandarambong ay hinog na. Tayo na at magorganisa ng malawakang protesta at mapatalsik sa puwesto ang Bise-Presidente.

Kadiliman

Portrait of poverty.

Portrait of poverty.

Nangingitim ang lipunan hindi dahil sa dala ng nag-aambong mga ulap kung hindi ay dahil sa nagbabadyang panganib ng bagyong higit na mas mabagsik kaysa kay Yolanda, ang panganib ng matinding pagsasamantala ng Bise-Presidente ng bilyon-bilyong piso mula sa kaban ng bayan. Bawat hagupit nito ay sinasalanta ang kinabukasan ng mga maralitang kabataan na nagtitiis pumasok sa paaralan ng walang tsinelas , naglalakad ng kung ilang kilometro, ulam na bagoong na nasa ibabaw ng kaning binalutan ng dahon ng saging at sa kalaunan pala ay nanakawin lamang ng pulitikong gahaman sa yaman ang kanilang pag-asang mai-ahon lamang sa kahirapan ang pamilya.

The Vice President's ill-gotten mansion while millions of children are dying in dire poverty.

The Vice President’s ill-gotten mansion while millions of children are dying in dire poverty.

Tila ay tinataga ng itak ng katiwalian ang buong katawan ng bayan, walang patid sa pagdurugo sa sukdulang pagtaksil ng Bise-Presidente, kaluluwa nito ay tinutusok ng karayom ng kahirapan at unti-unting inililibing sa ataul kasadlakan.
Ayon sa panayam ng ABS-CBN kay Bise-Presidente Binay , mismong iniluwal ng kanyan dila na siya ang may ari ng Hacienda Binay Sa Rosario, Batangas ngunit ng uminit ng husto ang alegasyong katiwalian, panay ang kanyang tanggi sa pag-aari nito, ito ay lantarang panloloko sa publiko, tinatanggalan ng dangal. Nilalaro ang kaisipan ng mga mamamayan ,sinasmantala ang kamangmangan ng mga mahihirap na mga magsasaka at mga mga manggagawa.
Ang katiwaliang kanyang kinasasangkutan ay isiniwalat ni Ginoong Erneso Mercado , matalik na kaibigan ng Bise-Presidente, may mga dokyumentong dala upang mapatunayan ang matinding pagnanakaw tulad ng mga Citi Bank at Hong-Kong Bank deposit slips na naglalaman ng milyon-milyong dolyares na deposito.

Cayetano just shown BATELCO payment for October 2014 of the farm. Agricfortuna
is paying the elctric bill through its Agrifortuna check.

As of 1998 sa pinapakita ni Mercado, umaabot na sa P350,000,000.00
total ang combined perso, usdollar, hongkong dollar at euro ang binay. Though
for validation on rollover placements yung iba. Pero nakakalula sa laki at year 1998, 10 years as Mayor of Makati.

Makati Building Park naman. Binay buking.

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling nung sinabi nilang green at
world-class ang carpark building (kahit na walang maipakitang LEED
certification ang bulok na bldg. na ito).

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling nung sinabi nilang 33,000+ sqm ang GFA nung bldg.
(pero 27,000+ lang naman talaga).

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling nung sinabi nilang kaya mahal ang carpark bldg.
ay dahil malambot ang lupang kinatatayuan nito.

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling nung sinabi nilang tama ang pinagdaanang bidding
process (kahit na lumalabas na iisa lang naman talaga ang bidder).

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling nung sinisi nilang ang Beijing Games kaya mahal
ang pagkakabili nila sa bakal na ginamit sa construction nung bldg (kahit na
pinabulaanan na ito ng special audit).

Hindi daw nagsisinungaling ang 67,000 pesos na hand dryer at 20,000+ pesos na
mga lababo sa mga CR ng carpark bldg. at ang 970,000 pesos na signage nito.

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling nung ipinagmalaki nilang “cleared” ng
COA ang project na yan (kahit na pinabulaanan na ito ng COA).

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling na walang iregularidad sa procurement process ng
carpark bldg. despite plenty of documentary evidence that say otherwise–for
example, maraming kulang na information sa bldg. permit, tulad ng total project
cost, gross floor area, project specs, pero kumpleto ang mga lagda at aprubado
ito ng City Engineer, Bids and Awards at ng mayor mismo ng Makati.

Hindi daw sila nagsinungaling nung una at mariin nilang sinabing “Hindi
overpriced ang carpark bldg.”, pero kalaunan ay binawi ito’t sinabing
“Baka nga may overpricing.”

Hindi daw nagsisinungaling ang 1.5 million pesos na sterilizer (real price:
16,000 pesos) sa Ospital ng Makati.

Hindi daw nagsinungaling si Jojo Binay nung ikinaila niyang pinirmahan niya ang
ordinansa ng MMDA ukol sa mga sidewalk/street vendors (ito yung nasa
kontrobersyal na debate nila ni Bayani Fernando).

Spare the children from the clout of corruption !!!

Children who are working to supplement their needs to live for a day.

Children who are working to supplement their needs to live for a day.

For the sake of the Children and for our country’s future, our future too, I appeal to Vice President Jejomar Binay to abandon his presidential bid for 2016. Have mercy on us Sir!!
“ Grabe na ito, sobra na, napakaganid naman niya sa yaman, sobra-sobrang pagmamahal sa salapi na sa bandang huli ay nanakawin lamang lahat ni kamatayan, sa kabilang buhay ay kahit isang sentimo ay walang maidadala !!!” Grumbled by an Eight year old lad which broke the silence between the fuchsia painted sky and the endless sea before us. His smile faded, the lines on his face showed intermittent discontent while the news anchor was reporting regarding the deepening issues of malignant corruption of Vice President Jejomar Binay, his two palms buried half of his face, curtained his disappointments. I could see vividly through his eyes the magnitude of corruption that was seeping like decomposing dead fishes through his membranes, all the betrayals and abuses that have been raping his innocence.

A life being disturbed by hunger.

A life being disturbed by hunger.

He was sitting just right next to me, his mind was disturbed by the violence of self – serving demon : Coruption, while his powerless soul is perturbed by the fact that through these factual allegations hurled against the Vice president, the whole country remained silent, there was no clamor to unseat a thief who has been swindling for years and there was a total absence of a protest that would rekindle the spirit of nationalism. Tears began flowing from his eyes, quietly described that silence buried the country in total darkness that concealed the hands which plundered his dreams and grinding his hopes till becomes mud. The setting sun was turning red as red as his revolting emotion, I patted his back with a comforting smile.” When you grow up someday, try to make a difference, persevere against corruption and an endless wasting of natural resources such as land and Filipinos’ superb intelligence.” I told him, words ran between his sobs.

Hopes through their eyes.

Hopes through their eyes.

There was a total silence for a moment except the chirps of the birds and occasional rustling of leaves as the wind blew through the Talisay tree. “ Do not grow up passive like a burning flame hidden beneath the cowardice which was demonstrated by the Vice President , he challenged Senator Antonio Trillanes IV for a public debate to clear his name from corruption allegations but when the Senator accepted it, he backed out and that was a very undignified display of cowardice. This country does not need a coward Presidentiable in the middle of territorial disputes with China. Lad always assert you rights, stand up and die for the things you believe to be morally right, be part of a movement that could see the unrealized potentials of the Filipinos, do not abandon the dreams of this country, though millions of Marxists and Socialists died during the reign of klepto –dictator ship, millions of rightist soldiers died through coup d’ etat and yet the country remained swimming in poverty, do not stop moving forward for the betterment of this country and her people, after all you will gonna fight for your own future and for your children!” I spoke to him again, the clouds turned blood, my esophagus breathed exasperation with the Vice President’s deceptions and lies that exploited the country’s coffer and trust. The lad nodded with a newfound inspiration then went home when his mother called him up, resolute on working for his country’s future. Again he was walking back to his real world, ran along the dark alleys infested with shabu addicts, strolled with the prostitutes that sold their bodies and souls for survival due to hunger and walk along the pothole road due to corruption.
