We beg to differ.


There are a lot of misconceptions about Philippine President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino that his supporters have been passing around as “truths”. They range from harmless to downright ridiculous but most of them are obviously part of a propaganda campaign concocted by his propaganda machine to keep his waning popularity up.

At one point Aquino propagandist Conrado de Quiros likened Noynoy to Aragorn.

At one point Aquino propagandist Conrado de Quiros likened Noynoy to Aragorn.

Indeed, BS Aquino’s “celebrity” status seems to have more to do with the results of the work of a publicly-funded public relations firm perpetuated by the majority of celebrity-obsessed voting public and less to do with the results of the President’s actual output during his term in public office. In other words, BS Aquino is like the Wizard of Oz whose magical powers turned out to be nothing more than just smoke and mirrors. Unfortunately, a lot of people cannot or refuse to see him for what he is – all special effects and nothing of substance.

Even before he was voted into office, BS Aquino’s handlers already realized that fooling the general public into believing that he is the answer to the country’s woes would be a piece of cake or just a walk in the park. Knowing that the majority of Filipinos were beholden to the Aquino name and with all the resources at their disposal particularly the use of taxpayer’s money, the Liberal Party has been having a field day deceiving the Filipino people for years.

While BS Aquino feels powerful while in office, he does feel threatened by political rivals particularly those who are rumored to be positioning themselves as a possible candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election. Some of the senators who were charged with misuse of the priority development assistance funds or “PDAF” like Senator Bong Revilla have been crying foul of political persecution. Revilla claims that the charges that he pocketed his pork barrel funds using bogus NGOs are false and part of a demolition job to ruin his chances in 2016.

Indeed, prior to the eruption of the corruption scandal, there was news of Revilla possibly running for the Presidency floating around, which gives merit to his claim. Whether what Revilla is saying is true or not doesn’t really matter. At the end of the day, the country would be better off not having him as the next President anyway. However, it does give the Filipino people an idea of what the Aquino administration’s priorities are and the lengths to which he and his minions would go to just to get rid of their rivals.

Being in good terms with media giant The Inquirer has worked wonders for BS Aquino. Aside from getting that extra exposure like being given the “Filipino of the year” award, some people have noticed how the Inquirer is always breaking the news about alleged corruption or bad behavior involving his political rivals. They seem to have “exclusive” information about people BS Aquino considers “enemies”. One cannot help but wonder if the media organization is part of the demolition team whose objective is to focus only on the opposition. The Inquirer was the first to report on the PDAF scam. They were also the first to report on the Binaygate scandal featuring Vice President Jejomar Binay’s son “Junjun” allegedly forcing his way out of a no-exit gate at Dasmarinas Village, Makati City. It’s no secret that the elderly Binay wants to win the next election.

PNoy government is running out of reasons to continue detaining GMA illegally.

PNoy government is running out of reasons to continue detaining GMA illegally.

One political rival that BS Aquino can’t shake from his thoughts is former President Gloria Arroyo. Even though she is already frail and suffering from what seems like an incurable illness and even though she is already detained at the Veteran’s Hospital for an indefinite period, he still feels very insecure about the possibility that she could nevertheless do something to pull his popularity down. Some social media commentators have also reported that her visitors are now forbidden from having their photos taken with her. This followed after high-profile personalities have been flocking to see the former President to pay their respect. These people have realized that she is being unjustly detained for the trumped up charges against her. This was making BS Aquino look bad.

BS Aquino’s fear is not unfounded. Most of his critics know that the economic growth he is enjoying now is partly due to the result of the former administration’s economic policies, which includes government spending to stimulate the economy. It is a policy that the Aquino government just copied and keeps crediting to itself. It doesn’t help that the international community keeps buying the hype that the Philippine’s strong economy has all to do with BS Aquino’s “anti-corruption” drive. It goes to show that even some members of the international media do not know what they are talking about when it comes to tackling local politics in Third World countries. They seem to rely on what’s being reported by the local media whose members could be bought cheap or who have political affiliations.

So far, BS Aquino has been lucky to get away with the irregularities in his government some of which are being branded as illegal by law experts. His lucky days could be numbered though because more and more people are joining his critics in clamoring for him to be impeached. For the benefit of those who still believe in his “Daang Matuwid”, here are a few un-truths about the President:

(1) BS Aquino is not corrupt.

Of course he is corrupt. There may not be evidence yet of him pocketing public funds but he used public funds to fast track the impeachment trial of former Chief Justice Renato Corona by bribing and strong-arming members of Congress. The revelation that he gave extra PDAF in the amount of Php 50 million to senators who voted to convict Corona is enough evidence to support this.

He may also have used public funds to travel to campaign sorties around the country to support the Liberal Party’s candidates in the last mid-term elections held in 2013. Aside from bribing members of Congress, BS Aquino bullies his way around by bad-mouthing his enemies and turning people against each other.

(2) BS Aquino finally exposed corrupt activities in government.

A 1996 front page headline exposing pork barrel thievery.

A 1996 front page headline exposing pork barrel thievery.

This notion is absolute garbage. In 1996, there was already an exposé on pork barrel scamming. The news also landed on the front page of the Inquirer. What happened next is a mystery. Obviously, pork barrel scams still continued even after the expose in 1996. The point is, BS Aquino’s government cannot take credit for something that was already newsworthy two decades ago. In fact, what has been exposed is that the pork barrel scam was worse during BS Aquino’s term. His 2014 budget even allotted 200 million pesos for every senator and 70 million for every congressman. That was quite generous considering they were already aware of bogus NGOs linked to some of these men. The PDAF allocation was diverted from being given directly to the members of Congress when his government was forced to abolish the PDAF after the public outcry.

(3) BS Aquino is the greatest President the Philippines ever had.

On the contrary, he is the worst President the Philippines ever had. Not only does he lack diplomatic skills, he is also arrogant and vindictive. He doesn’t even have the humility to apologize to the Hong Kong government for bungling the Mendoza hostage crisis in 2010. He has divided the sentiments of the Filipino people and caused the public to argue about his executive decisions. The so-called “peace deal” in Mindanao involving rebel group MILF has put the nation at odds because of its unconstitutionality. Some want peace but not at the cost of giving away parts of Mindanao to a rebel group. The deal is not even acceptable to other existing rebel groups in Mindanao.

Aside from the much-lauded “economic growth” in the last two years, not much has changed since he took office. The number of poor people is still going up and corruption is still rampant in government. To quote a news report:

A Social Weather Stations survey has found that more than half of executives from some 1,000 enterprises in Metro Manila and six urban areas nationwide indicated “a lot” of corruption in the government last year. Fifty-six per cent of the businessmen claimed seeing “a lot” of corruption in the public sector, a 30-per-cent increase from 43 per cent in 2012.

(4) BS Aquino is the lesser evil.

In the eyes of some people, he is plain evil. He seems hell-bent on persecuting his former college professor and former President Gloria Arroyo for allegations, which are proving to be false and malicious. So far, the charges against her keep getting dropped for lack of evidence.

He has no compassion for an ailing elderly woman considering his own father Ninoy received compassion from former President Ferdinand Marcos when he was allowed to seek medical treatment overseas.

* * *

Those are some of the misconceptions his supporters use to defend BS Aquino. It works in the short term but in the long term, they will be proven wrong. One thing is for sure; time is no longer on BS Aquino’s side. Time will prove that he lied to the Filipino people when he said he is fighting corruption. The truth is, he is only fighting the men and women who are not on his side.

    One question, If you don’t want PNOY as president, then who will replace him?

    • Ilda says:

      The question shouldn’t be who; it should be what. What does the candidate stand for? What is his vision and plans for the future of the Philippines? If the candidate can give you valid answers to those questions, you should vote for him.

      • Norman says:

        I approve in this enumerations, I approve, but the greatest question is: the president, whether you like it or not, really did his job. in my lifetime, hes the only one who really pushed up most projects. and with our broken system. we cant lose another guy like him, hes corrupt, ok. but compare to others. its a small sum. but unless, someone is better than him, we must replace PNOY.

        • Schweizer says:

          Ah what? Let’s talk about economic growth that BS Aquino’s administration is lauding, sure the Philippine economy went up a few percent but so did the rest of the world (except for some) therefore prices of other countries imports will still remain the same. Stagnating is not progress. The problem is more cultural than political. It should start in every citizen to hold their elected leaders accountable. Stop voting for trash. BS as a senator, how many relevant bills did he came up with? Why is it that back there entertainment is more important than innovation?

      • Mauro Gia Samonte says:

        Eerap was doing perfectly fine when he crushed Camp Abubakar – hence MILF. But US didn’t like it that way. What did they do. Throw him out of Malacanang through the infamous Davide Doctrine. The point, Darling. Replacing presidents in the Philippines has never been the job of Filipinos. It is US’s exclusive prerogative/ What got Marcos out of power? The EDSA insurrectos? My foot! US kidnapped Marcos and Family and forced them into exile in Hawaii – opening the floodgates of Malacanang for the Cory takeover. Bs Aquino, like his sweet-tongued mother, comes and goes in power completely according to US say so. My own say so, US is not quite about ready to let him go. The SAF 44 incident can be the prelude to a far grimmer US scenario in Mindanao.

  • Cossack_25A-1 says:

    Unfortunately, the Filipino-Chinese community begs to differ and would say that ABNoy is the best president this country ever had.

    • chinoy says:

      uh no for the rich and wealthy yes but not all chinoys have money. Pnoy is the dumbest leader I have ever seen, and I would not like to be led by a person with a lower IQ than I do much less a person with no ballz whatsoever to defend his own men

  • eric says:

    I’d say being corrupt is not just all about the money. Being corrupt is depriving what is due to the Filipino people.

  • alfonso alag jr says:

    Noynoy aquino the best compare to other past president. Use your (six) senses

  • JohnQuill says:

    You are who you vote. That idiot of a president is what the Filipino people deserve.

  • Pops*tar says:

    Granted, PNoy became president only on the strength of his family name but would you rather have another Erap or GMA? If you do, then I understand why you fail to see anything good about what this administration accomplished. Pnoy may have his faults, a lot of them, including being corrupt as you alleged but until you produce concrete evidences & whistle blowers to substantiate your allegations as were produced against Erap & GMA, who’s gonna believe you but those whose hatred for PNoy is etched in their DNA.

    • WinterSoldier says:

      Wrong, son.

      The issue here is COMPETENCE. Noynoy is worse than Erap at least the latter has balls.

      Call former president Arroyo ‘corrupt’ or anything, but she never point fingers on everyone and she’s an able administrator. Too bad the biased media highlighted her faults and you fell for it.

      “but until you produce concrete evidences & whistle blowers to substantiate your allegations as were produced against Erap & GMA, who’s gonna believe you but those whose hatred for PNoy is etched in their DNA.”

      Lies. Most of them tried to do, yet it is impossible since Noynoy has the biased media on his side.

      Congratulations, son. You just went FULL RETARD with what you wrote. -_-

      @Pops*tar

      Your lack of imagination limits your choices to PNoy, Erap and Gloria. There were so many other candidates more qualified and competent who ran for the Presidency in 2010.

      Can you please be more specific about what this administration has “accomplished”?

      You want evidence PNoy is corrupt? He abused his power in using taxpayer’s money without congress approval. We’re talking about billions of pesos he just wasted on his “pet projects” that do not even directly benefit the Filipino people. The SC just ruled DAP unconstitutional once again:

      Supreme Court affirms DAP unconstitutionality

  • urmimi says:

    Aquino being President will never get full support from his countrymen. Those who benefit on his term will hail him, those who are not will attack him. That will always be a given scenario. Being a President is a no easy task to deal with. I’ll be expecting those anti- Pnoy to attack me if I sound like Im on his side. I can judge him on his behavior towards that SAF incident and to all other allegations involving him but I choose to be passive. I choose to be like that because i don’t want to sound like of “nagmamagaling”. Who am I to tell him what to do? Yes we are taxpayers here, I hope everybody here is. But instead of pointing a finger on him I have to deal first with myself. Who can prevent such incidents to happen? Sooner or later there will be a new President, whoever he/she might be same scenarios will repeat itself. Come to think of it, there had been lots of President our country have but still the problems are still the same? Isn’t the problem is not who leads but also who follows? The leader changes over a period of time but the followers are the same. Hate me now but I assume that it is easy to blame and criticize the government rather than correcting oneself. =)

    • Ilda says:

      PNoy’s boss can criticise him anytime. Only his rabid supporters have a problem with criticism against their idol.

      Who can prevent such incidents to happen?

      A competent and honest leader can prevent or at least minimise casualties. Your idol did not even inform the military about a major operation such as Mamasapano operation. What was he thinking?

      Come to think of it, there had been lots of President our country have but still the problems are still the same? Isn’t the problem is not who leads but also who follows?

      Another comment that doesn’t make any sense.

      • urmimi says:

        And because my comment have no sense to you, so what? Maybe you just don’t understand my point. Or I conclude that you consider me a foe and whatever I point out here won’t matter to you. Tagalugin ko na ha. Napansin niyo ba na ang dami ng namuno ng bansa. From different walks of life. Pero ang problema ng pilipinas Ay Hindi na nawala. Nasa namumuno Lang ba ito? O ang pinamumunuan din. Ang residente ng Pilipinas Ay Hindi nagbabago, maaring nabawasan o pwede rin mdagdagan. Pero ang pilipino noong panahon ni erap Ay siya rin. pilipino sa panahon ni gma at pnoy. Namuno lng ang nabago db. So dapat ang responsable kung anong bansa tayo ngyon Ay nsa namumuno Lang? Baka naman may Mali rin sa atin. Kontrahin mo ako dito at para mo na rin kinontra yun blog mo about voters are to be blame. Madali lng magreklamo. Ano kb as a citizen. Baka naman reklamador ka Jan sa gobyerno sarili mong buhay di mo maayos. Mali ba ko dun. Kung Mali ako, fine.Kayo na po ang magaling =)

        • Ilda says:

          @urmimi

          You already read my other article pointing out that the voters should be held accountable for putting incompetent people in office. You should have already realised that I don’t put the blame solely on the President.

          I think you are just a time waster.

          Pasensya na po Ms. Ilda kung ako’y isang walang kakwenta kwentang taga-comment dito. Ako’y humihingi ng dispensa kung nasayang ko ang iyong mahalagang oras. Ako’y nagbahagi lang ng aking saloobin dito sa iyong article. Kung iba po ang aking pananaw huminhingi po ako ng tawad sa inyo. Binasa ko ulit ang aking nagawang comment pero wala naman akong nakitang nagawang pag-atake sa inyong malalim at puno ng kaalaman na artikulo. Ako’y nagsaad lamang ng aking repleksyon na sino ako para manghusga ng ganun ganun na lang. Ang solusyon na nakikita ko ay sisimulan ko muna sa akin at sa sarili kong pamilya. Baka po kasi hamak ako ng hamak ng aking kapwa eh napakadami ko naman kapintasan. Ang mentality ko pong ito ay isang “nonsense”. Iba po kasi ang aking pananaw, bilang individual ay dumadaan din kasi tayo sa kanya kanya nating suliranin, may mga pagsubok talaga na kahit anong galing natin bilang tao ay hindi natin maiiwasan o masolusyonan. Kung ang tanging maiaambag ko lang sa ating bayan ay ang simpleng pagbayad ng buwis at sumunod sa mga simpleng alituntunin, iyon lang po ang kaya ko. Kung kayo po ay nabigyan ng higit na kakayanan para sa mas malaking pagbabago baka maaring kayo ang may susi sa pagbabagong iyon. Napakasama ko ba kung iyon ang punto ko? Nagkamali na ang gobyerno, nakadapa na,aapakan pa ba natin? Ilang buwan na lang at darating na ang eleksyon, sa pag-ngawa po ba natin dito ay may o kahit konting kurot ba na mararamdaman ang mga mamamayang Pilipino? Napaka-komplikado ng problema ng bansa para ang simpleng pag-ngawa ko po dito ay makagawa ng pagbabago. Iyon lang po ang aking pananaw. Muli, ako’y humihingi ng pasensya.

    • Cheron says:

      @urmimi

      But you do realize that you are actually contradicting yourself, right? You were practically pointing out that all presidents are the same and that it is the voters who need to change and correct themselves and yet you mentioned that you have become passive for fear of being accused of being nag-mama-galing.

      In essence, all you said is that you are a hypocrite.

      How can anyone effect change when all they think about is pwede na yan, or ganun talaga eh, or di naman mananalo yung gusto ko kandidato, or worse- what you did- which is NOTHING!

      • urmimi says:

        In what statement did I mention that all presidents are the same? Ang point ko po if di niyo po gets ang namumuno Ay nagbabago or napapalitan over a period of time but yun pinamumunuan same pa rin po. Same pinoys. Now if being passive makes me a hypocrite, I’ll accept that.I never said that “pwede na yan or the same” don’t put words into my mouth. What I mean by correcting oneself here is you as a citizen. Kung ano Lang kaya mo icontribute. Gusto mo ba magwelga ako or palitan ko si president para masabing may nagawa ako. Hindi b Pwedeng I’m proud that I’m a good citizen, not the best but good.

          Everyone here in this blog has something that a LOT of Filipinos didn’t have: CRITICAL THINKING. And you lack one.

    • useurbrainnoturbelief says:

      Hindi ka nga “nagmamagaling” pero “nagpapakabobo” ka naman by not analysing and not accepting that your president is a “Big Joke”. Kaya nagkakanda-Loko loko bansa natin dahil sa mga katulad mong passive thinker. Tanggap nlng nang tanggap sa mga nangyayari kaya akala mo un ang tama. For once naman do your country a favor. Matuto ka magisip at timbangin kung tama ba o mali na nakikita mo.
      And by the way, yung incident sa Mamasapano, i believe that could’ve been prevented or atleast the govt could’ve minimized the damage kung sumunod lng sa protocol ung presidente mo. Eh kaso t@nga talaga kaya ayun. Kala niya siguro parang lng pelikula na porke namatay ung kontrabida(marwan) eh tapos na istorya.LOL.

  • Dale Gozar says:

    ARROGANCE OF POWER
    is the reason why PNoy get dumber & dumber (Incompetent).

    “Power makes leaders dumb. The more power you gain the dumber you get”.

    PNoy gain absolute Power from control of:

    1. CONGRESS (Senate & House of Representatives) – PNoy use Pork Barrel to get their full support.

    2. JUDICIARY – PNoy responsible for ouster of Corona from Supreme Court.

    3. AFP & PNP – as Commander in Chief he appoint the Chief of Staff of AFP and PNP chief.

    4. MEDIA (T.V. Radio, Movies Newspaper, Prints, etc.) – allows to condition people mind and influence voter’s decision.

    5. COMELEC – Smartmatic hocus PCOS machines.

    6. SHOWBIZ (c/o Kris).

    7. Family/Parent are influential, rich and popular.

    The dumbing effects of Power are:

    1. It reduces the complexity of your thinking. Absence of critical thinking make PNoy:
    a. to over-simplify
    b. no vision
    c. lost foresight of things
    d. poor logic
    e. poor problem solving skills.
    f. no-sense of observation
    g. unaware of our real problems.
    h. lack of imagination & creativity.
    i. can easily be manipulated or lied upon by people around him.

    2. It Limits your ability to consider alternatives. PNoy decide quickly and validate his decisions.

    3. Permits you to treat people like objects who get things done rather than human beings. (e.g. PNoy’s disregard of sacrifices of our Fallen44 PNP SAF).

    4. Closes his ears. Powerful people like PNoy minimize what others know. (e.g. DILG Mar Roxas & Deputy PNP Chief Leonardo Espina).

    5. Decreases your interest in others. You matter more.
    6. Inspires preoccupation with self. The world revolves around himself.
    7. Struggles to understand the perspective of others.

    The Danger of Incompetent & Arrogant Leaders are:

    1. Incompetent & Arrogant Leaders create dumb organizations, poor planning, and failed missions.

    2. Incompetence/Stupidity is contagious and can spread (viral).

    3. Incompetence (Stupidity) can be fatal / kill people.

    “Evil isn’t the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as Evil, maybe more so, and it’s a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against Stupid. That might actually make a difference.”

    Ways to spot PNoy lacks competence & humility:
    1. How do PNoy talk to his people?
    “buhay pa naman kayo”
    “hinde ako pumupunta sa libing ng hinde ko kilala.”
    “wala sa schedule ang pagpunta ko sa arrival honor for Fallen44 PNP SAF”.

    2. How do people talk about PNoy Presidency?
    – Weak, Push over, Soft
    – Incompetent, Stupid, Dumb
    – Detached
    – Uncaring, Insensitive
    – Untalented
    – Corrupt, Denial, Deceit
    – Hypocrite
    – Arrogant

    3. How do PNoy support others?

    4. How do PNoy’s celebrate the accomplishments of others?

    5. How much time do PNoy & Kris spend talking about themselve and legacy of parents?

    6. How much time do PNoy spend calmly listening?
    PNoy only listen to people when forced by world trending on Twitter (Social Media) #NasaanAngPangulo.

    7. PNoy tolerate his people work behind the scenes? Despite of being suspended – PNP chief Purisima allegedly called the shots in SAF covert mission that led carnage in Maguindanao.

    How can our next President or future leaders be protected against the arrogance of power?

    How can our nation develop humble President/Leaders?

    Filipinos must start to identify, promote, create & vote humble leaders. Ways to develop Humble President/Leaders:

    1. No dress codes – be simple. Look & Act naturally like everyone else (common tao).

    2. Leaders must be approachable. Remove physical barriers that create inaccessibility.

    3. Develop transparency by approving FOI bill (Freedom of Information). People must knows how government is spending Public Funds. Secrets protect inequity and promotes suspicion, distrust and doubt.

    4. Expect more execution and less talk. Talking without execution encourages arrogance.

    “A smart leader requires humility”.
    “Humble leaders are smarter than arrogant”.
    “Getting smart requires humility”.

    for every difficulty, every problem and challenge this president faces, people like you are one of the main reasons why things become even worse. no one can deny that this president hasnt made a lot of mistakes, but for every mistake he makes it seems like a victory to your kind. you cannot deny that this president with all his shortcomings has good intentions for our country. i feel for him because for every misstep, he knows that his parents legacy may be tarnished. he needs more of our support more than ever for the good of this country.

      Yes, he made mistakes but instead of improving, it’s still the same crap all over again. So you can’t blame people who are criticizing him right now. Well, he will still ignore his critics and lash at them, just like what he did to Walden Bello. That’s sad.

          @ego:

          I hope in the near future we SCRAP the stupidity that is the 1987 constitution and favor a form of governance that ACTUALLY favors efficient leaders. Besides Noynoy and former president Estrada, there was Gordon and Gibo who actually had something Pinoys could wish they can buy; a concrete vision. Nothing is going to change if we still run a system where familial last names matter and celebrities/athletes who get popular and pitch money to the poor to make things better.

        • ego says:

          I agree with Dick Gordon. Credential wise in Gibo too. But I want to inform you that Aquino and Teodoro are blood related. They are cousins.

        • WinterSoldier says:

          @ego:

          Look, I never regretted on voting Gibo because he’s not like “them” (yes, Noynoy and co.) He and even Tessie Aquino-Oreta are open for Charter Change.

          Anyways, Noynoy’s first platform is his vengeance against GMA. But do you know what is Gibo’s platform in his first 100 days as president if elected? He tends to focus more on health care and education.

  • Joy says:

      • Ilda says:

        What revelation? LOL

        A month after the tragic event, PNoy came swinging back with “I was fed lies about the Mamamsapano clash…” and you believe him? Gimme a break! It was his buddy Purisima who was feeding him information the whole time. So why was he still protecting him despite all the “lies”? PNoy was even sad to accept his resignation. He should have fired Purisima from Day One.

  • Old Coot says:

    There is no way anyone can convince me that Marcos was not the worst President. Anyone who even has the temerity to say Marcos was better than Aquino has zero — ZERO — credibility and a vindictive agenda. Si Marcos, mamamatay tao yan, ang daming pinapatay niyan, mga mag-aaral, mga manunulat, mga opposition, mga kalaban ng asawa at cronies niya. Marcos jailed all his opposition leaders for years — Ninoy, Diokno, Salonga, Kalaw, many, many more. He suspended Habeas Corpus for years, politicized the military, and systemically and deliberately looted the national treasury on a massive scale, matched only by GMA. He suspended the courts, dissolved Congress, established a crony ruling elite, imposed a curfew for years. He fled to the US and was caught red-handed by Hawaii Customs with millions of dollars in gold bullion, jewelry, negotiable treasury instruments.

    When Marcos became president in 1969 the Philippine GDP growth was second-highest in Asia, only Japan was higher. By 1977, just 5 years after Martial Law, even Bangladesh had a higher growth rate. By 1983, after Ninoy Aquino was murdered at the airport, we defaulted on out loans, our financial reserves were revealed to be wiped out and our currency had devalued catastrophically.

    To say PNoy is the worst President is just pure bullshit. So the entire article clearly has an agenda. I have zero tolerance for people who seek to revise history.

    The most insidious claim in this piece is that Marcos was “compassionate” to Noynoy’s father, Ninoy Aquino. Really?! Marcos jailed Ninoy WITH NO CHARGES for 7 years, then tried him for treason and rebellion in a military tribunal, then exiled him on 24 hours notice to the US.

    Then when Ninoy came home to his own home country, the military gunned him down before he could set foot on Philippine soil. Compassion?!? Only if you have lost all sense of right and wrong.

    So first you jail a guy without charges for 7 years, then you force him into exile, and that’s compassion. It’s ludicrous! If it weren’t so tragic, it would be a comedy.

    This article was written by a yuppie born long after Marcos, who doesn’t know the difference between compassion and a Christmas tree.

    Then you ask yourself. Why, with only fee months left in his term, is there such a shrill campaign to demolish PNoy. Well, it’s election time. You have to derail his endorsement, preclude potential callous of election fraud, discredit the government.

    That’s how you win elections. You trash the incumbent, call him the worst President ever, and then even a hooligan like Binay begins to shine.

    Agenda.
