Huwag pitasin kung di pa hinog

“The time is ripe for the Filipinos to make a decision.

        The Armed Forces will support the people whichever side they will take. The military is bound to uphold its constitutional mandate as protector of the people and the state. That’s the only principle that should be embraced by the military. That’s the essence of the military…It’s not to defend a particular person or a particular institution but to protect the people.”

LtSG. Antonio Trillanes IV

Trillanes. This opposition senator/military officer/ neighbor, again, is the bida of the second episode of this Makati siege series. A new set of characters added to this political melodrama which is uniquely Filipino. But I have never liked this Makati siege drama episode. It just adds to the already complicated and tight socio-economico-political knot-slash-mess. Heaps of political problems and personal agenda sour the Filipinos’ confidence towards their government leaders. 

Well, siguro nga, may ipinaglalaban talaga siya pero kasi hindi pa hinog ang mangga kaya huwag munang pitasin. Kung tanggalin nila si Gloria, sinong papalit? Sila. E di unconstitutional din? So hinarap nila ang argument na caretaker government muna habang wala pang leader. Talaga? How can you assure us of that promise? I admire your strong will to fight for the cause of the Filipino people but meyn! nakakasawa na paulit-ulit na lang tayo eh. And if they succeeded in the siege at naging coup de etat nga na caretaker government, di ba’t unconstitutional pa rin yun? Lahat ba ang Pilipino agree sa pagpalit na naman sa pangulo?  

Parang flavor of the month lang ha. Kapag di tayo nakontento sa lasa ng pamamalakad, punta na lang sa EDSA o kung saan man at palitan ang pangulo! Panahon na para maging mature naman tayo! I sympathize with you sa iyong mga sentimyento, Mr. Trillanes, pero ilagay din natin sa lugar. Huwag pitasin ang hindi pa nahihinog. Pero sabi mo nga, hinog na. Pero hinog na ba talaga? Napakasubjective pa rin. 

Hay, ang political drama sa Pinas, dinaig pa ang West Wing. hehe

  1. i’m not a trillanes fan either [alam mo naman yun di ba? CONGRATS on being the only one to read my oh-so-very eloquent political post! APIR!]… i know this country has its problems… pero… this was just unnecessary drama.

  2. I’ve been an a-political citizen for the longest time since Edsa I. Haha. Pero trivial things such as Trillianes’ Manila Pen drama sends blood rushing to my head again….

    Oh anyway, thanks for dropping by and linking me up! Will sure to return the favor…you’ve got a nice and sensible site too!!!

    Blog on!

  3. @ chevy: hahahaha! at ako lang pala talaga ang nakabasa nun. wala ang iba kahit isa. hahaha. sana di mo na dinelete pero sabi mo nga baka masira ang reputasyon mo, tawa.

    @ kurokuro: hahaha! at napansin mo pa talaga ang wig eh noh? hahahaha! natawa ako nung napansin ko. thanks for droppin by and for linking me.

    @scarlett: I think Trillanes did an important thing – to pursue the cause of the people – but the mode used seemed to be a form of dissent/ destabilization which is definitely unncessary for any change for a better cause. tsktsk… in a way, parang umeksena lang ulit siya. di ba? hehe… i admire him for being courageous and full of determination pero talagang di pa panahon…. tama na ang kudeta! parang ayaw na nila. anyway, salamat sa iyong pagdaan at paglink din sa akin!

    God bless!
