On Celebating the New Year of the Lunar Calendar and On National politics

Let me start by greeting you all a Happy New Year especially to the Chinese and Vietnamese who are celebrating their New Year today! (Thanks to sources that can be found at this link.)

Ok. The ranting starts.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, or should I say, former Speaker Jose de Venecia has already been replaced after having 5 terms under his belt. Tsk tsk. May have stayed there till the end of his days had his son not meddled too actively or spoken too loudly about the whole foul ZTE deal with China.

But then, if his son didn't do what he did, then we, the Filipino tax payers, would have been robbed, again, big time! One point goes to the country's weak opposition! :)

So... Let the biggest egos in the land oust their former leader, who held the 4th highest government position for 5 terms straight, and just show us again how they stage their power play and remind us that indeed "there are no permanent friends or enemies in politics, only permanent interests," which is, sadly, primarily their pork barrel and the projects that they, supposedly, are being given for their people.

Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago was right when she said they were all just squabbling over their kickbacks! Wahahahahah!

What a farce on national television participated by no less than the honorable Representatives of the land!

My fellow Filipinos, these are the people you put on power every single election?!?!?!?!

Will you admit that you deserve the government you have?

Damn. Im 22 and still the adolescent angst is still here. That's a good thing. Atleast I'm not yet desensitized.

What we, the Filipino tax payers, want is to know that our money is being spent wisely. We don't mind, for now, that we are being robbed as it had been going on since the Philippine government came to be as we know it today.

Please please please, dear politicos, statesmen and women who owe us more than you care to admit, give us our hard-earned money's worth. Dont let this boat sink. Let us all do our part to improve this country, for the sake of our children's future.

We can't afford to let ourselves slip over and over again.
