Sunday Reading Can Give You Gas

Reading the Sunday papers can either be a relaxing pastime, or give you a bad tummy.

Reading through the Inquirer gave my stomach a whirl. Rina David is quick to point out that what you wear may be considered seditious, so could leisurely walking through a park. My, my, are we really under de facto Martial Law? That’s what Justice Isagani Cruz thinks.

Meanwhile, still in the Inquirer, Raul Gonzalez says Dinky (obviously the Palace’s Enemy No. 1) could get up to 12 years for attempting to stroll along the Roxas Boulevard Baywalk wearing a black tee with “Patalsikin Na! Now Na!” This is a great quote from him, but can’t understand why he said it:

You have a right to disrobe in your bathroom or your house, but not in a town plaza or a church,'' he said”. That’s how he explained the limitations on freedoms. Duh. Everyone in our group had clothes on.

Now on to the Star – their take on the arrests is similar to that of the Inquirer story in that they quote several lawmakers for and against the police action, but their slip shows when the remarks by Domogan are given center play:

"It’s clear they were attracting public attention and sympathy. The police should have just disregarded them because the public would also have done the same. She’s not worth our attention despite her worst efforts to remain in the public eye," he said.

Domogan said Soliman should be remembered "for her disloyalty to the President whom she stabbed in the back.
"

Speaking of loyalty, it is clear to us that Dinky’s loyalty is not to Gloria, but to the country. Loyalty can easily be bought when your pockets are full and you are willing to make promises to keep your lackeys loyal. And notice how they target Dinky, not Enteng. Another thing, for clarification – Dinky did not form BnW, Enteng did. The Hyatt 10 as a whole and BnW have a friendship and tactical alliance. There. Ooh, I need Tums!

Let’s move on to Max Soliven, the ever faithful Palace sycophant. Okay, we really never read him, but we had to take a peek nonetheless. He scolds the cops for falling into Dinky’s “trap”. He then goes on to say that our tee shirts clearly meant “oust GMA now”. Please, where are her initials on the tee shirt? At least he got this right – he says we were a small pack of protesters. It also shows that even as Max tried to make what happened Friday night outside Aristocrat look insignificant, our Black Friday Protest certainly put the repressive regime on the defensive. Great, let’s break out the Maalox. Max can really give you gas.

Finally, a quote just received by text that lifted my spirits:

Si Dinky Soliman hinuli kahapon,
Atienza’t Defensor sinibak ni Drilon.
Si Gringo Honasan milyones ang patong,
Dahil si GMA nandaya’t napikon!

- Vim Nadera, makata

The Garci Recordings have suddenly gained a legal personality as evidence in the criminal suit of Jonathan Tiongco vs. PCIJ. This will force their provenance to be flushed out. It may be a Mike Defensor Blunderino.

Not only is Max a sycopanth for the Palace, hiding behind a pseudonym he also is an attack dog for some palace hangers-on. Read how nasty he can write when he does hatchet jobs for these yellow cowards http://tinyurl.com/s79ue

Rizalist, Defensor Blunderino, indeed. Tiongco is certifiable, and Defensor is stuck with him. Trust the Despicable Duo to dig their own graves and uncover the truth in the process.

There you are again calling people names if they are not the same with your opinions..

I wonder what you will call me this time...

about the Rhyme..gandang rhyme ang nabuo ni Vim Nadera, naayon sa panahon..Galing..

Idagdag ko lang po ito..

C Dinky naki-if we hold on sa malacanang..
with matching may i cry..
Drilon ask Gloria, move to iloilo ang malacanang..
for GMA dey will die...

Nakaraan ang isang linggo,
Drilon, Dinky kasama Hyatt 10,
Anila,GMA time to go....
Sabi GMA,no go till 20-10..

Actually d maganda ang rhyme dyan pero ang mga pangyayaring yan ay mahirap kalimutan..

Ano ba ang nangyari at biglang bumaligtad? Ano nagicing n lang b cla na ayaw na nila kay GMA? Or natarayan lang b cla ni GMA?

C Drilon at Dinky ay mga prime campaigners ni GMA nung 2004.. So isa rin sila sa mga dahilan kung bkit nahalal c GMA.. Ewan ko ba, ang pulitika sa ating bayan..kailan kaya magbabago..ako'y sawang-sawa na..

CONCERNED OFW of SINGAPORE...

Pity. Wasn't Max one of the first to be picked up during the imposition of Martial Law in 1972 due to his media work that was critical of the dictatorship? What happened?

Helga said...

There are many reasons a person can change, kofranks. Love, hate, greed, the need for power or confirmation. Who knows? I don't know what really resides in Max's heart. There will always be people like him. They are the fuel on which dissent feeds.

JuanDLC said...

Just like both Dinky and Drilon...
After years of licking GMA's butt all of a sudden they changed..for what, for personal interest or national interest..you tell me...

Again...

C Dinky naki-if we hold on sa malacanang..

Drilon ask Gloria, move to iloilo ang malacanang..

Nakaraan ang isang linggo,

CONCERNED OFW....(again not pro-GMA as u r trying to imply)
