“How shall freedom be defended? By arms when it is attacked by arms, by truth when it is attacked by lies, by faith when it is attacked by authoritarian dogma. Always, in the final act, by determination and faith.” ― Archibald MacLeish

The ERAP 80th B-day Party: Bringing Back Old Memories and MORE!

Happy Days Are Here Again!

So long sad times
Go long bad times
We are rid of you at last
Howdy gay times
Cloudy gray times
You are now a thing of the past

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let's sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again

Altogether shout it now
There's no one
Who can doubt it now
So let's tell the world about it now
Happy days are here again
Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here

Hail, hail, the gang's all here
What the heck do we care
What the heck do we care
Hail, hail, the gang's all here
What the heck do we care now
LOOK! The Filipinos have a very short memory of the misdeeds of the leaders who betrayed them! #Erap's plunder "erasure" reunion
Ferdinand Marcos : "He might have started as a hero 
but ended up as a crook.” 
Singapore's Former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew
Don't we at least remember Marcos' partner in the "Conjugal Dictatorship"? Maybe her pathetic look these days is deemed by our people good enough punishment for a woman whose beauty was legendary decades ago.
How about Gloria's most recent presidential predecessor? Isn't Erap, our unlucky 13th president, another more worthy candidate for the worst President? The Sandiganbayan gave its decision, finding Joseph guilty of plunder "beyond reasonable doubt" and sentenced to "Reclusión perpetua."
(Of course, Erap was quickly pardoned by Gloria.)
This brings us to Gloria. It's still too early to tell, but if the current signs mean anything, she has got a lot to answer for.
How could so many scandals of an elected (?) president and her cadre remain unexplained, unchallenged, and unpunished? When? Probably never.
We're not talking mistakes, here. We're not talking poor judgment or failed policies. We're not talking politics as usual, with its underhanded array of pork and perks. But we are talking about very serious violations of the public trust, and very possibly the law, perpetrated by the elected (?) leader of this nation and her handlers.
Even more amazingly, we are talking about the shameful reality that not a single one of these offenses has been investigated by a truly independent, non-political, neutral commission, armed with subpoena powers and adequate funding, and answerable ONLY to the people of Philippines. Not a single one.
What ever happened to the investigation of?

* The National Power Corp. (Napocor) -CPK-Kalayaan rehabilitation project.
* The race horse importation fiasco.
* The overpriced Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard exposé.
* Misuse of the fertilizer funds.
* The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. scandals.
* The jueteng scandals.
* The ZTE-NBN scandal ("Buck off!").
* The Bribery of Governors and Congressmen in Malacanang.
* The MOTHER of ALL SCANDALS: THE HELLO GARCI Mega Scandal that influenced the last Presidential elections.
“Cowardice rightly understood begins with selfishness and ends with shame.” 
Long after Mr. Duterte has gone and his most vociferous followers are footnotes in history, we will write about this terrible era of avarice, injustice and death. From NYT
