The Bad Abads


All in the family

It’s all in the Abad family, and President Aquino staunchly defends his pick of the Abad family members stationed within his administration.

As for Budget Secretary Butch Abad’s spouse, Rep. Henedina Abad, who is slated to head the House of Representatives’ appropriations committee — and will likely get this House post since it has already been bared by the incoming Speaker, Sonny Belmonte, that major House committee chairmanships would be Aquino’s decision — she says candidly that there is no such thing as delicadeza, claiming that her daughter and son, Julia, who is Presidential Management Staff (PMS) head, with Cabinet status who will be handling Aquino’s huge pork barrel; and Luis Abad, who is chief of staff of Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, as well as her husband, the Budget secretary, are all qualified to take their positions in the Aquino administration.

“What is delicadeza?” Henedina Abad asked House reporters doing the story on the presence of too many Abads in the Aquino government, adding that there is no such thing as delicadeza.

The Abad family, bereft of delicadeza, as the Batanes representative herself admitted, since she interprets delicadeza as the antonym of competence, which she claims all of the Abads are equipped with, is now in full control of the government funds — from Finance and its agencies’ revenues, to budget funds to scrutinizing, or non-scrutinizing the funds, to congressional allocations, to disbursal of funds and spending–as the family directs.

Predictably, Noynoy Aquino came to the defense of the Abads, saying he has violated no law by appointing all the Abads in his administration, and pointing out that apart from Butch Abad being his longtime mentor, and his PMS chief having been his chief of staff, none of them has been tainted with corruption.

One wonders then why Noynoy and his sanctimonious ilk kept on criticizing Gloria Arroyo for having so many of her relatives in government. Or is it now a matter of Gloria being morally wrong in getting too many of her relatives in government and Noynoy being morally correct in having all the Abads, plus a few more of his relatives peddling influence while Noynoy sits in Malacañang?

So what does Noynoy call being a party to robbing the people’s sovereign will and waltzing, for five long years, with an illegitimate president whom he and Butch Abad supported and even actively pushed to be proclaimed president by Congress despite the blatant fraud evidenced in the election documents? Honest? Incorruptible? Defender of the people?

Noynoy and his Liberal Party (LP) chose to portray themselves as the “righteous” leaders, untainted by corruption and anomalies, and out to change the nation while bringing in reforms and eradicating all the claimed evils in society.

Since they chose to portray themselves as the “good” while all others are branded evil, these “holier than thou” government officials — led by the “most holy” Noynoy Aquino, must perforce be measured by higher standards. And do they fail those high standards.

It must then be asked: Why is Aquino defending the Abads who admittedly have no delicadeza to speak of.

If the Abads do not know the meaning of delicadeza, which is the rough equivalent of having a sense of propriety, or more aptly, having no shame, how can the nation then expect propriety and shame in what they — all four family members, in virtual control of government funds, their allocations of the funds, and even the disbursing of the funds — say and do, having no shame, and no delicadeza?

Since the Abads give no importance to delicadeza, anomalies, irregularities and even blatant malversation of public funds by party mates, relatives of the big chief, and even Cabinet members’ scamming the Filipinos would not be seen as wrong or shameful — as the Aquino government does not bother about delicadeza.

Come to think of it: When the PeaceBonds scam came into being, no one heard a peep from the LP, much less the Abads, with Butch Abad even being part of the infamous Hyatt 10.

If the Abads believed that there was no scam in the PeaceBonds, what then of other scams that will be perpetrated under the Aquino administration in the coming months, and even years, since for them, there is no such thing as delicadeza?

Here comes the Bride!


Dream Lover!

Let’s talk about PeNoy’s controversial love life! Perhaps all the single ladies wanted to be part of his life huh?! Not because he is handsome, but he has  fame and fortune that makes him look handsome (cringing hardcore!) So what’s the gist of his future wifey?!

Quality time together 🙂

Quality Time? ka diyan. Election is over and Shalani must to move over. The Aquino’s already used her from top to bottom, side by side and everything! Now, you can see her beside the dumpsite. Coming from a reliable source, It is not Soledad Shalani that PeNoy will marry.

The Aquino’s consider Shalani as a disgrace to their family and that’s the true colors of yellow blooded animals! Knowing Kris Aquino… what more shall I say. Pangalan pa lang alam mo nang di makatao!

Anyway, so who is the one that PeNOY will propose for marriage….

Ms. Liz uy (make-up artist and Ex-GF ni Papa John Llyod)

Liz Uy is one of Kris Aquino’s favorites! She’s also a Chinese, so fix-marriage is accepted. Now, boo hoo to Shalani and may the force be with her. Paglaban mo ang pag-ibig niyo ni PeNOY! 🙂

Truth About Noynoy’s Psychological Problem: Carmen Pedrosa


May 8, 2010 (Saturday) Carmen N. Pedrosa

The machines that will fail; letters from Boston

It is not as if it is being said for the first time. I repeat what others have said that failure of election will not come from the PCOS but from two other machines –  FV (Filipino voter) and FC (Filipino candidates).

The machines are so out of date, they cannot function properly for the selection of leaders for our country. The FV is out of sync and performs as if it has nothing to do with why he is voting a particular FC. The FC operates within this flaw and produces results with nothing to do with FV.

That in brief is the problem we face when the results are known after May 10. When disaster strikes and the country malfunctions (with candidates declaring beforehand that they will not accept defeat) let us put the blame on those who refused to accept that the machines are not and cannot work unless these are fixed.

*       *       *

Among those I turned to in my quest for information that would help voters choose a qualified candidate to be our president is another family friend of both the Aquinos and the Agulars. They formed a tightly knit Filipino community in Boston. Let us just call him Jim because, he, too like so many others who have something to say about Noynoy as unfit to be president of the Philippines does not want to expose himself.

Dear Ms. Pedrosa

Just when I think of giving up on RP…because it doesn’t want to be helped…I meet someone

of your high stature—who is into saving RP (from dud leaders?). I am naturally encouraged again.

To go into your inquiry, I am sorry to tell you that I do not have any medical information about Noynoy.

Seriously, I don’t hope to go into that route. I have always relied on my own personal observation and inference in evaluating

a person, and that is how I form my idea of someone who should not even think of being president.

I’m sorry to sound preachy, but I think it is time for us Filipinos to discern that way about candidates who simply “like” public positions, but which are out of their aptitude.

The Agulars and I stayed together everyday of my trip there leading to the Upsilon reunion at the Manila Polo Club. Steve and I belong to that Batch. And to his widow and son’s family, it was a sentimental reunion with “Steve’s brods.”

To this day, we are each other’s extended families, as when we both lived in Massachusetts.

Personally, I think the Agulars, (especially the late Dr. S. Agular), are apolitical. But they are very loyal to family friends. The Aquinos are one.

In politics, I am more loyal to RP ( the Republic of the Philippines. That’s why Gordon is my candidate. I wish to read more of your regular columns. I think we have many sensible things in common about what is good for RP.

This letter was followed by another.

Thank you for this attention…tho’ undeserved… but I would rather not be another ‘witness to corroborate’ the imperfections of Noynoy. I believe we have enough evidence in the open to convince a nation that Noynoy should best be left to himself…not running for president…and certainly not be used—not by his sisters, not by

his relatives, and not fussed about by the media.

Unfortunately, the RP media abetted this yet another political aberration. It’s our culture

and our habit to promote the bizarre and the incompetent, e.g. Erap, Lapid, Revilla, etc.

We prefer to be entertained, it seems that way. And this might sell newspapers,

but it carries no responsibility.

I could not believe, for instance, the headlines that came out from both The Philippine Inquirer and the Philippine Star newspapers. They actually hailed the dramatic internal struggle of Noynoy to make a decision for the ‘big plum.’ Is there a movie about this heir cashing in on a huge political inheritance?

That’s right…the media played a big part in making a Noynoy attractive to the millions

of impressionable voters.  Of course, it’s not lost in me that we (you & I?) might be that child yelling to the crowd that the king is shriveled in the head, and has no clothes.

But we have to look back some 30 years ago. How much can we rely on Pinoy “kantiyaw” humor…things said in anecdotal bantering of a small party of friends?

In MA then, I remember asking why…”itong anak ni Ninoy ang layo kung sumagot.” (not

in the presence of Ninoy, of course.)

And the answer I got was: …”kasi may kulang.” …which was consistent with what

I thought was a missing bolt in his head. (never occurred to me that he would run for

president, let alone his mother, Cory!…years after. Cory, I think, was a disaster for RP.)

Thirty years since…I repeated the incident, and the answer I got was: “ikaw naman…! ‘di naman gano’n ang ibig sabihin ng “kulang”.

And what did it mean? The explanation was that…he was “kulang sa pansin

ng tatay”….because all the attention was given to the (spoiled) youngest, Kris. And this, supposedly,

had a big impact on the “kid.”

I see…but not quite. I may get into EXPLANATIONS, but still this is not the DISCUSSION I want to get into

with my friends. So I left this matter to rest. Besides, it is a 30 year-old personal observation of a “kid”. Times have changed. I’m often chided. Even some people are able to get out of cancer, so I’m reminded.

Today, I am further reassured, “Have you heard Noynoy speak lately? He KNOWS how to speak in public now.”

And is this why ‘that kid’ is urged to run for president?!?

These letters reinforce the opinion that the validity of a psychiatric report on a person’s ability to lead does not rest on whether the report was signed. Indeed the report can be true even without a signature.

What is necessary is that what it reports can be verified through other means. It is not the signature that makes the report. Experts arrive at their conclusions by observation, asking questions and then evaluating their observations through the prism of knowledge through textbooks and experience. Ordinary people can do the same without having formal expertise.

Reports do not become bogus for a lack of signature. The details of the report have been reported widely and interpreted by its readers according to what they hear, what they see, and make their own profile of the person concerned.

Sen. Noynoy Aquino: MAY SAKIT NGA BA SA UTAK?


Circulating around the net…

 

 

 

 

 

Why not Sen.Noynoy take the challenge of having A Psych Test?

Karapatan naman natin malaman at suriin mabuti ang mga kandidato natin lalo na sa personal side. Kung yung health concern nga at drug testing ginagawa why not mental capacity?

 

 

Kris Aquino had a bitch fit again! How True?


From a media friend:

“In a shoot for a TV commercial, Kris Aquino was supposed to be with her ‘friends.’
Looking at the talents in the set, Kris singled out one girl and said, ‘No one will believe she’s my friend. Please change her.’
The talent cried daw.”

Scary momma.

I dare the Noynoy-Abnoy supporters to put as much substance as they can here. I predict this is going to be a very SHORT thread- pex.
