I interviewed the heads of the two ratings agencies regarding the sudden and steep drop in the President’s performance and trust ratings.
I interviewed the heads of the two ratings agencies – Pulse Asia and SWS – and asked them what was the biggest cause of PNoys poor ratings.
- “Is it pork barrel?” I asked.
“No,” they replied.
“Is it the SC decision?”
“No,” they replied.
“Is it the high prices?
“No,” they replied.
“Is it his handling of China?”
“No,” they replied.
“Then what is it?”
We moved on…
“How do you explain the improvement in Binay’s ratings?”
“The people sympathized with him. They thought he was Nora Aunor’s father,” they replied.
Headline ng Philippine Daily Inquirer – Vocal DAP critic also got P25M from fund (HERE)
Neri Colmenares is the party-list representative of Bayan, the primary member of the Makabayan bloc whose sole purpose is to use democratic processes to bring down democracy.
- In a text message, Colmenares said he was not informed of the source of the funds but he stressed that these were fully liquidated.
“I was not aware that projects I nominated were funded by the DAP nor did I receive documents that show these came from the DAP,” he said.
The lawmaker said he proposed the projects to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM).
“I nominated school supplies and feeding projects for the poor to the DBM. I checked from the DBM if they funded the projects and they funded P15 million for hospital assistance and health kits under an item called Continuing Appropriations and not the DAP,” he said.
Ayus ka. Basta tanggap ng tanggap, gastos ng gastos pagkatapos pag nagbago ang ihip ng hangin ikaw ang mauunang tumira doon sa pinagkunan mo ng pondo. Idol!
Sen. Enrile and his chief of staff Gigi Reyes filed a joint motion with the Sandigan that they be held in the same cell. The court approved their request on condition that a video camera be installed in their cell.
The PNP leadership refused the Sandigan order saying, “We can’t force our policemen to watch them.”
But a friend said he would volunteer for the job. He said Enrile was very angry at Gigi for being careless in her dealings with Napoles and he had to see how a 90 year old man gives tongue-lashings and finger-waggings to a fiftyish woman.
Once again the outrage and indignation brigades are throwing righteous fits. This time over Ateneo University accepting a donation to the school’s scholarship fund from Imelda Marcos.
Why get all righteous against it?
First of all, Imelda is giving not taking. She’s giving around 100 scholarships for Ateneo. Masama ba yun?
Dapat pasalamatan siya embes na insultuhin siya at ang Ateneo.
Ilagay kaya ng outrage and indignation battalions ang sarili nila sa lugar nung 100 estudyanteng gusto pero kulang o walang pera para makapagaral sa Ateneo.
Go ahead and punish Imelda if you want but don’t punish her scholars.
Second, they say that Imelda’s donation comes from money stolen from us etc.
We accept money as grants and donation from Spain, the USA, and Japan.Our former colonial masters. Our oppressors Didn’t they steal from us? Did they not mistreat us?
How about grants, donations, scholarships, awards etc from Rhodes, Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller, Mellon, DuPont, Nobel etal. Malinis ba ang pinanggalingan ng pera ng mga foundations/organizations na yan?
Rhodes plundered Africa. Did Ford, Carnegie, Rockefeller, Mellon, DuPont etal become rich by behaving like model citizens? How about accepting a peace prize from Nobel who got rich from his invention: dynamite?
Hindi ba iyan mga philanthropy na iyan ay itinayo para linisin at ma-deodorize ang reputation nung mga bilyonarong iyan? O pwede din naman na itinayo yan mga foundations na yan dahil feeling guilty sila sa ginawa nila para yumaman, diba?
Kung ganun na feeling guilty sila eh di parang restitution na din ang charitable works nila, diba? Bakit sila pwede at si Imelda hindi? Bakit pagiinitan si Imelda at sila hindi?
What if Imelda starts building free hospitals for everybody, are we supposed going to reject that too?
Let’s welcome Imelda’s donations. Let’s encourage her to spend her wealth on our needs. Let’s save our outrage and indignation for the right occasion.
1. Did you wonder why there was a commotion after the referee rewarded Robben’s magnificent dive with a penalty?
I did. So I investigated.
I learned that the big argument between the referee and his Dutch team mates was because the referee wanted to take the penalty kick himself.
2. Netherlands striker Arjen Robben announced he will retire from futbol after the World Cup…to concentrate on training for the next Olympics diving championship.
3. Columbian striker James Rodriguez’s first name is pronounced Hames. Jejeje.
If schools are held responsible and made to pay hazing victims and their families millions and millions of pesos in damages, I bet schools will make sure that frats disappear faster than you can say, “Buttfuck!”
Doktora Loi Estrada to Jinggoy
“Anak, akala ko ba pinaliwanag mo sa akin na yun DAP ay ginamit pangsuhol sa mga senador para bumoto na ma-impeach si Corona, eh bakit ngayon nasa mga dyaryo na si Bongbong Marcos ay nabigyan din ng P100M mula sa DAP? Anong ibig sabihin niyan, sinuhulan din ni Noynoy si Bongbong para bumoto contra sa impeachment ni Corona? Paki-explain nga, Labyu….”
Raissa Robles blogged about Sen. Enrile’s request for hospital arrest during his plunder trial.
“Old age and declining health are reasons the former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile cited for the court to grant him bail.
The request was accompanied by a May 16, 2014 medical certificate from a Dr. Claver Ramos of Makati Medical Center.
Dr. Ramos, an internist specializing in nephrology listed a long list of ailments that the 90-year-old Enrile has:
1. diabetes mellitus,
3. essential hypertension,
4. extensive coronary artery calcification in the right coronary,
5. left anterior descending and left circumflex,
6. multifocal ventricular premature beats,
7. episodes of bradycardia,
8. colonic diverticulosis,
9. thoracic and lumbar spondylosis L4-L5,
10. alpha thalassemia,
11. macular degeneration,
12. chronic lacunar ischemic zones,
13. scattered small luminal plaques of proximal middle segments of basilar artery, both horizontal and insular opercular branches of middle cerebral arteries”
It seems like the good doctor forgot to include Kleptomania in the list of ailments plaguing the old man.
Cockroaches and rats held a rally protesting the presence of pigs in the Camp Crame detention center.
Bong Revilla got migraines because he found his cell too hot for him. His jailers said they provided him with an electric fan. But that was not good enough.
His wife, Lani, wanted an “air-cooler” instead. So, “what’s the difference between an electric fan and an air cooler?” the jailers asked Lani.
She replied, “Ayaw po namin ng electric fan kasi po nadudumihan si Bong with all the shit hitting the fan.”
