I’ve often wondered how it would be like facing St. Peter on judgment day. I thought of the variables but no matter how I try squeezing time to soften the inevitable, it isn’t a pretty sight wheelin’ and dealin’.
What to do? I demanded equal opportunity reminding St. Peter he need not act like some cabinet secretary I know? St. Peter allowed some slack asked what it is I wish before deciding letting me fly upwards or sent packing to the barbeque pits below.
I said I would like to speak to 2 people responsible in turning Filipinos into OFW’s (Of Filipinos Wretchedness).
Mr. Marcos, what were you thinking creating agencies such as Sandiganbayan, Sangguniang Bayan, Barangay, DILG, MMDA, Ombudsman, SolGen, PNP and many other craps? Can’t you see instead of improving the lives of Filipinos with the additional layers of freeloading bureaucrats, it screwed their lives even more? Do you know some of these officials care for nothing but costly projects for even more fat commissions leaving the poor taxpayers living under bridges eating packaged noodles? Where else in the world can you find a general in cushy offices in metro Manila overseeing a celebrated case in Mindanao? You and your PNP creation.
What more can be so offensive than hearing another general in the military saying ‘Soldier’s lives will not go to waste!’ Was he referring to a soldier’s life being mere garbage material? What I am saying is you and Imelda should have left things alone.
Tita Cory, My question for you is, what were you really trying to tell Filipinos when you started wearing your signature yellow color? Was it meant to be some kind of a fashion statement, or were you telling the Filipinos to feel like one? Their rights are being trampled on a daily basis and feeling outraged isn’t a priority? Look like you succeeded in your goal and you must be happy.
Finally, I saw my passport stamped ‘undesirable’ No entry to heaven!
