Too quick on the draw

Those who are too quick on the draw end up shooting their feet

Madaling gawin sa labas ng MetroManila…..

Natatandaan ba ninyo nung nag-kamay na bakal si Mayor Lim sa Manila. Maraming na-salvage na petty criminals, nahahanap ang mga bangkay nila na may karatula pang “Huwag tularan” snatcher o pusher etc. Pagkatapos lumusob pa si Mayor Lim sa isang area kung saan tambak ang mga pusher at nag spray paint siya ng mga pintuan ng mga suspected pusher. Spray paint lamang ay inulan na siya ng kaso. Umurong din si Lim kahit na kasing tigas siya ni Duterte.

Anong ibig sabihin? Mahirap mag matigas sa isang lunsod tulad ng Manila. Masyadong malaki ang Manila, nandyan lahat ng pinaka-malalaking tao ng bansa, hindi yan basta-bastang kakayahin na tulak-tulakin ng isang mayor kahit na gaano ka tapang pa siya. E kung pati na nga si Marcos ay napatiklop nila, si Duterte pa kaya?

Kaya paulit-ulit kong sinasabi na subukan muna natin ang kakayahan ni Duterte, mag-mayor muna siya sa Manila bago tayo maniniwala na yung kaya niyang gawin sa Davao ay kaya niyang gawin hindi lang sa Manila kung hindi sa buong Pilipinas rin.

Duterte beats Grace in NCR poll

Posted in Manuel Buencamino by uniffors on the November 26th, 2015

Davao City Mayor Duterte topped a recent Pulse Asai poll on the presidential preference of NCR (Naional Capital Region).

Sobra talaga ang lamang ni Duterte kay Grace Poe in the latest Pulse Asia survey on the presidential preference of Metro-Manilans.
Malaki ang nawala kay Poe sa ABC class – from 27 down to 19 at sa E class naman from 35 to 27. Sa D hindi statistically significant ang pag bagsak ni Poe from 31 to 28.

Si Duterte naman sumipa pa taas sa E class from 14 up to 31. Sa ABC at D classes umakyat siya ng 5 to 6 points so halos within the margin of error lang yun and thus not statistically significant.

Sa kabuuan ng NCR si Duterte ay 34 ngayon mula sa 27 at si Poe naman ay bumaba sa 26 mula sa 31. Yun lamang ni Duterte na 34 to 26 ay statistically significant na dahil yun 9 point lead ay labas na sa margin of error na plus/minus 5.7

That’s why it came as no surprise that the reaction of Poe’s camp was:

    “the survey only covers NCR (National Capital Region), there is more to the Philippines than Metro Manila. Hence, at this point the survey is inconclusive and not reflective of the sentiments of the country.”

Siempre kailangan nilang sabihin yun para hindi lumipat ang mga malalaking negosyanteng campaign financiers ni Poe kay Duterte. Mahirap humingi ng donasyon kung mukhang matatalo ka.

I think that means Duterte should run for mayor of Manila to show us that what he can do in a provincial city he can also do in a city with millions of residents and a press that will closely monitor his anti-crime methods.

Drugs are a medical problem

Posted in Manuel Buencamino by uniffors on the November 24th, 2015


The House committee on dangerous drugs has passed and endorsed for plenary approval a bill imposing stiffer penalties, including death, on foreigners found guilty of engaging in drug-related activities in the country.

The bill is entitled “An Act Adopting the Higher Prescribed Penalty, Including Death, of the National Law of An Alien Found Guilty of Trafficking Dangerous Drugs and Other Similar Substances, Amending for the Purpose Republic Act 9165, Otherwise Known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

    “This means that the imposition of the penalty for drug offenses as prescribed under the national law of the foreigner or the penalty under Republic Act 9165, whichever is higher, is the rule to follow,” the authors said.

So I guess we are going to have beheadings, hangings, and firing squads if we are going to follow the national laws of other countries?

Drugs are a medical problem, they shouldn’t be in the hands of cops and courts. The US declared war on drugs during the Nixon adminsitration some 40 years ago. And 40 years later there are more drug users, more drug gangs, and more drug-related corruption than Nixon could have imagined when he first declared war on drugs. So something must be wrong.

More civilized European and Latin American countries are now looking for other solutions. They realized that treating drug use as a criminal rather than a medical problem is the wrong premise. Look at what that mistaken premise has wrought: drug cartels, corruption, money laundering, illicit labs, and almost anything you can shake a stick at.

Addiction is a disease like every other disease. If you were sick would you rather be brought to a police precinct or a hospital?

It’s time to rethink drug policy and not press forward at full speed down the wrong road.

The sovereign will argument

Posted in Manuel Buencamino by uniffors on the November 24th, 2015

Those who argue the sovereign will on behalf of Grace Poe despite the fact that she may not have met constitutional requirements on citizenship and/or residency should, for consistency, also argue in favor of the condonation doctrine which Junjun Binay invoked.

The condonation doctrine holds that

    “When the people have elected a man to office, it must be assumed that they did this with the knowledge of his life and character, and that they disregarded or forgave his fault or misconduct, if he had been guilty of any. It is not for the court, by reason of such fault or misconduct, to practically overrule the will of the people.”

The Supreme Court recently discarded the condonation doctrine. Reelection or the sovereign will of the people expressed through the ballot will not be a free pass anymore. Should the Supreme Court consider the sovereign will argument with regards to Grace Poe or not?

France remains calm while panic and hysteria grip the US

Posted in Manuel Buencamino by uniffors on the November 19th, 2015

French President Francois Hollande today promised that “France will remain a country of freedom,” defending his decision to honor a commitment to accept migrants and refugees despite Friday’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.

    “30,000 refugees will be welcomed over the next two years. Our country has the duty to respect this commitment,” he said.

But across the Atlantic, thousands of miles away from Paris, around 30 US governors have said they will not accept Syrian refugees into their respective states and Republicans in the US Congress are introducing bills to block Syrians from seeking refuge in America.

Presidential aspirants Donald Trump and Sen Marco Rubio oppose any Syrian refugees coming to America while Sen Ted Cruz will only accept Syrian refugees who are Christian.

This led US Pres. Obama, who is in Manila for the APEC meeting, to mock the hysterical Republicans.

    “These are the folks who suggested they’re so tough that just ‘talk to Putin’ or staring down Isis [will work]… but they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America as part of our tradition of compassion,” he said.

    “At first they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of three-year-old orphans. That doesn’t seem so tough to me.”

    “We are not well served when in response to a terrorist attack, we descend into fear and panic.”

    “[Isis] seeks to exploit the idea that there’s war between Islam and the West, and when you see individuals in positions of responsibility suggesting Christians are more worthy of protection than Muslims are in a war-torn land, that feeds the Isis narrative. It’s counter-productive and it needs to stop.”
