Last week, it began with the Liberal Party. Check out MLQ3's scathing yet wonderfully hilarious column for enlightenment.
Thank you, Ellen, for the quick text this morning about Mike Enriquez being praised by Gloria Arroyo on his DZBB radio program. Yes, it is the "kiss of death for a true journalist". I was at once filled with loathing at how baldly she uses this game plan of divide and conquer. Before this move on media, there was the co-opting of respected personalities like Justice Davide and the Con Com's Abueva. If you can't scare 'em into submission, take them under your slimy wing. Am glad Ting Paterno got out from under it.
It is becoming more and more apparent that this administration is busy at laying the groundwork for the smooth transition to martial rule. Win or intimidate people, institutions to your side, then slide the ol' proclamation of martial law right in. By then, their acquiesence will make it impossible to raise a voice in protest without being labelled as "tuta" or "balimbing". How else can Gloria Arroyo defend herself against the truth?
To quote a good friend, we are truly on the road to becoming "bayang walang glorya".
