Dismount

Straight from one of the proverbial horses on which Gloria rides to keep her comfortably on the saddle of power – Presidential Legal Counsel Raul Gonzalez opines that GMA will run for Congress to avoid accountability. He says threats from civil society and business groups to seek redress for her appalling lack of good governance could be too much for her to face. We thank the erstwhile Secretary of Justice for his candor. We now know why GMA allies in the HOR are hell bent on convening a constituent assembly without the Senate.

Following Gonzalez’s train of thought, the Black and White Movement posits the following - the HOR will convene as a constituent assembly, pray that the Supreme Court sees things its way, and once the Con-Ass is legitimized, immediately amend the form of government to a parliament. Aware of how election results may be compromised in favor of approval, it may not be long before we are saddled with the presence of Rep. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in a unicameral congress. Being at such close quarters to her congressional BFFs will make spreading her influence effortless. She could easily win the Speakership. From there, it’s a hop, skip and short legged jump to becoming Prime Minister.

News reports state that Supreme Court Associate Justice Minita Chico-Nazario has inhibited herself from handling the Resolution 1109 matter as brought on by Oliver Lozano. Not unlike the congressional affiliates of the LP, NP, and NPC that threaten to leave the HOR majority coalition if the Con-Ass would institute unpalatable changes to our charter, she is perceived not to be enthusiastic about handling such an unpopular case. It is heartening to know that the Supreme Court is still cognizant of its importance to our history.

The Senate stands united in its abhorrence for a constituent assembly. We hope this resistance continues and that none of its members defects to the “dark side”.

We sense our people’s hopelessness and distrust, hence the cynicism that no matter what we do, things will remain the same. However, if we allow the dire plans of this administration even minimum success, there will be no way for anyone to institute the reforms and renewal we so desperately need. We therefore commit to continuing our fight for justice, to calling for the 2010 presidential elections under the present constitution, to thwarting a dark future through a “Gloria Forever” scenario.

TindigNation!

STOP Cha Cha! Kick Con Ass! Now na!

Anlakas gumastos ng pulitiko para sa mga walang kwentang bagay at para sa kapritcho. Pero pag hiningan mo ng tulong para sa edukasyon ay sasagutin ka nga “wala kaming budget para dyan” Si PGMA analakas gumastos ng dinner sa mamahaling kainan pero simpleng request ng isang batang mag hahighschool ay pinagpasapasahan pa.

Nakakalungot talaga.

Sana ho Black and White Movement wag ninyo suportahan ang mga pulitikong puro lip service. at sana ay mabasa ninyo ang blog ko ng malaman ninyo at ng readers ninyo kung pano nabalewala ang request ng isang ina na makapag aral ang anak nya. humingi ng tulong kay mar roxas, sinagot na walang pera ang kanyang tangapan para sa edukasyon pero sa pa liga ng basketball at sa TV ads eh kayang kaya gumastos ng milyon. humingi ng tulong kay erap ngunit tinarayan ng sekretarya at sinabihang wala silang oras para sa ganyang bagay. at ng sumulat kay PGMA eh pinagpasapasahan.

Ang hirap maging Pilipino.
