The Sunday Currently Vol. 3
|How is this photo relevant to my post? It's not.|
I tried my best to steer clear from writing anything that has something to do with politics but there's already too much drama happening and I couldn't help it.
Facebook posts, comments, and anything related to Duterte, the pressing issues regarding the anomalies in the Bureau of Customs, the INC rally that caused inconvenience to many, and Aldub - yeah, I didn't believe such atrocity exists. Hehe. Just Kidding. No hate here #Aldub fans, just love. :)
this blog post and my opinion about Duterte running for Presidency. Okay, don't get me wrong. I believe he'd be a great leader given that he wins. But for him to carry the burden of this country, I think, would be too much to ask for a 70-year old who is supposed to be retiring and having the time of his life with his grandkids.
He has led Davao to where it is now - from a no man's land to a promised land. And it took him 20 painstaking years to do that. I don't think he'd be able to turn the Philippines around within a short span of 6 years. Yes, you may think that what he has done to Davao can be done to the whole country too. But you see, Davao is not easy to manage (if some of you think it was); more so, Manila, let alone the entire Philippines. The country is already in a very deep sh*t. Although I'm not saying it can't be done. But with the kind of people who are used to a substandard discipline, or the lack thereof, then I don't think it is doable. I believe in Duterte, however, I'm sorry to say this but I'm going to be honest... I don't believe in the Philippines and the people living in it.
to the voice of my skeptic mind. I know change is needed for this country to move forward. And I know that Duterte is the man who could be the catalyst for that change. He is the spark. But that spark would never turn into a flame unless the people will fuel the change within themselves. If you haven't figured that one out yet, let me spell it out for you: S-E-L-F-D-I-S-C-I-P-L-I-N-E. That is what we need and what we apparently lack. And sadly, what we refuse to have. Is the Philippines really ready to handle Duterte? Is the Philippines ready to succumb to Duterte's "ridiculous" laws and his "unconventional" way of ruling? Baka magulat lang kayo at di magtatagal ipapa-impeach nyo din sya. We don't want another EDSA revolution, do we?
news for the first time after so many months of denying myself the time to watch tv. Never thought I would still get this pissed. I realized I don't have the stomach to tolerate all these political sh*t. So I'll just blog everything once and for all and stay away from the tv again.
Well, as a citizen of this country, I have something to say. What the INC did was downright inconsiderate. Ang nakakainis pa, nakaperwisyo na nga pero wala din naman pala silang napala. I know you have the freedom to rally all you want. But that freedom should come as being able to stretch both your hands and move without hitting anybody. Which apparently is not what exactly happened. Yes, you have the right to exercise your right as long as it does not impede the rights of others or cause inconvenience to anyone, right? Right.
for the best. So far everything I've written in this current The Sunday Currently feature is about politics and the current events. There is nothing more I'd hope for but the best for this country, so does everyone. I understand why people would want Duterte to run and be the next president. People see him as a hero and a quick fix for this sick country. But quick fixes don't last that long and heroes are better off dead.
myself at the moment. I have never spoken about politics for a long time. Although I know some people may frown upon what I've written. But hey, it feels good to exhale some thoughts even though my opinion isn't at the side of the majority. And I hope I'm not offending anyone. So please don't hate me.
Duterte to just stay in Davao. I know, I know. My reasons are just selfish. Plain selfish. But as I always say, he can't do this alone no matter how over qualified he is to become the next President of the Philippines. I've already lost my faith in the government and the people. BUT (yes, that's a big but) if he runs, my precious vote goes only for him and we'll see how things will unfold. I just hope that if he runs, it is because he wants to, not because he got pressured by what the people want him to. Those are two different things and can have different effects.
to breathe. Politics has gotten into me again. And I want to ward off those negative vibes.
a little pissed over local tv networks being still as biased as they were. Aside from the cliched, no-good teleseryes, this is actually one of the reasons why I stopped watching tv.
for world peace. Because I have nothing else better to say. Haha. But really, who doesn't want world peace?
or more like scrolling my Facebook newsfeed. And I'm glad, I came across this:
How was your weekend everyone?
