A problem of semantics
The President as a human is just concerned to his fellow humans that’s why he released his first list with names of humans he did not differentiate to be greater or lesser humans. So does PDut has no right to expose humans armed and dangerous to many of their fellow humans in our country? From one of these armed and dangerous humans alone we know how killer types those mentioned are: they have their full assortment of firepower ever polished and cocked up for so many times as they grit their teeth being exposed of their skeletons of the narco closets by the bravest President the PH has throughout its history.
******
First off, we are not and we will not be heroes and it’s none of our business to join the debate. Besides heroes are extolled in books not cemeteries. Am 52 now and have not gone to libingan ng mga bayani. It’s only the relatives of those buried there who have personal attachments not us. The problem is just semantics as by it is about space. Now why just call the place libingan ng mga presidente at mga bayani. In that case, Marcos is separated as well as included.
******

Kung hundi binunyag kaylan pa? Dead men tell no tale, true. But on the other William Shakespeare posted a truer quote: “The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.” That’s why a judge and a cop officer, both dead, were included in the 1st Digong list. If not of Digong’s revelation, we could have not known that the two were dead already. Anyhow, there’s though a need to super insulate the feeding of intel info to the President. It should be foolproof.
******
Of course, there are salvagers, vigilante, trigger happy, blood thirsty lurking in the ranks of cops and agents in each province. Or the newly hired, neophyte cops just wanted a killing experience so they shot fatally for a kill instead of just wounding a drug suspect during a raid. In the ensuing melee of reporting, cops tend or intentionally lump a fatality of say a dead out of a grudge or revenge to be included in the statistics of drug suspects. And police beat reporters take the investigation section’s blotter notes without questions and so the drug toll increases each passing day.

But besides this reportorial melee, there’s a melee of rival drug dealers in the current drug war, and so Bato is right, nagpapatayan na sila. The confluence of these factors and other reasons constantly feed a fire to those who cry for more blood, result to irreversible drug war and collation of increased drug statistics. We’ve been through this and our paranoia was past us. Of course, there are collateral damages in the war, and so sorry for them. But being first paranoid is just natural in this current drug war. Outsiders of Davao City would sooner shake their drug paranoia out and be immune of the daily reportage of drug death toll.

******
TAGS & HASHES: We’ve been there in this daily purge of criminals and drugsters. So there’s no chill in our spines, dear Phils except Davao City. It’s you who are paranoids……At least hitherto apolitical netizens become political now with the advent of Digong. They share on their FB just by seeing the title as pro-Digong without knowing its porno content…..
Unlike corporate boardroom, rebels who have blood as their capital need ample time to cross consult each other before they decide an important one.#CeasefireNow

Manilenyo hawks

With Pres. Dut’s revelation of the long list of narco politicians, narco judges and narco law enforcers, PDut’s “My God, I hate drugs!” (Dios ko, gikasilagan ko ang druga!) should now be transformed to just “We hate drugs!” as common slogan in schools, workplaces, in all places, with the signature fist of Prez Dutz.

For me, I’ve just formulated a draft for our village’s community code of restrictions for progressive home development and offsite resettlement, and am inserting an anti-drug provision to our model- for approval by our general assembly.Indeed, let’s join PDut’s total drug war by contributing even in small way whatever station of life your are in now.

*****

I’ve heard either afterthought or sigh of relief from many, many people saying it’s kinda really better that Digong won as what would happen to the country had he not won given the shocking revelation on the gravity of the drug problem that could not be known had he not won.

******
PDut started good, let this ceasefire noise be kept under wraps. Are these shadowy people moving at the backroom nowadays? Bert Gonzales (a daily chatter with freed GMA?), JoAl (is he still alive?), Boy Saycon (enjoying his retirement as PWD?), Gringo (enjoying his terminal leave bonanza?), Trillanes (cocking his arma but Faeldon is watching for a kill?). Of course, the top echelon at the AFP hierarchy are all hawks than doves (But Bato is ready to sagasa them in case they go for a coup, in cahoots with Tulfo Bros.). Time for a rollcall for these Manilenyo hawks and unknown others, Dabawenyo Panacanang guys.
******
TAGS & HASHES: Terminate ex- and incumbent narco chief executives via sharpshooter sniper’s fire, and to hell with HR….. Methinks Joma’s slew of red-hot verbal shot (read: butangero) to PDut should not result to cusswords again after the latter tempered in residing in Malacanang….. Sibling as a word could not have been understood well had it not because of FB. ‪#‎BeWordsmith‬

OPINION: Difference between refund and reimbursement

Difference between refund and reimbursement

Dutertards: The Supreme Court’s decision stopping 10 PM-4 AM curfew on minors is lyrical. At no time in Philippine history under Duterte time which is so improbable at this time of highest popularity has seemed so surprising in immediate throwback since Duterte administration’s start of its timeline as this SC’s decision. This would only say, as a matter of common sense, that a city not even an island could not rule a country.
*****

Metro Manila is primate city in the Phils, the freest, most liberated city, where the creme dela creme of country’s critics and critical minds conglomerate, that’s the context to use to see why the Supreme Court stopped the 10 PM-5 AM curfew. Of course, Prez. Digs would have media, institutional critics there unlike Davao City after Pala’s death. More criticisms, TROs, supalpalans have yet to come to him, Koko and Alvarez. This is the Philippines.
*****
If only Sen. De Lima will play game like twerking ala Miley to Prez. Digong’s facial movement and not be onion-skinned, turn red and bluster, then she could be a good presidential timber in 2022. She has to play her cards well.
*****

How superlucky he is who was spurned in 3 races and in the last he won out of divided votes of his 2 rivals then he zoomed up riding on the crest of the titan’s popularity from a maim kingpin’s balm of anointment and gee his flood of pennies- and yes! for a song. This supermajority SOB just became the speaker of the super-balingbing, super-recycled and super-unwashed panties in the house.
*****
Thanks Google, and from Jeki I got this answer to a longstanding question hovering in my coco shell: “If you return an item that you bought to a merchant to exchange it for the money you purchased it with then you are getting a refund. If you are being given money for expenses that you have on behalf of someone then you are getting a reimbursement.”
*****
Don’t read, watch mainstream media for a month and only indulge on social media, then voila you only have Mocha Uson as national politician from Manila. There’s no more Drilon, Erap, Chavit, Lacson et al. Duterte time’s such quite interesting.
*****
TAGS & HASHES: I missed the Philippine Oscar’s last SONA….. A day before his 1st SONA, Prez. Digz signed the FOI EO. Incredible!……That fatal post. The better half could have just texted the significant other of her hubby than posted it on her FB…… If FVR won’t accept to be envoy to China due to old age, then send in the freed GMA without the neck brace.

TokHang for lawyers, et al

Now I realize – after reading Baste Duterte’s opinion on being Mindanaoan stereotyped as a Moro when you are in Manila, and for all that Manilenyos’ supremacy-fueled hatred against Moro- the more Pres. Duterte comes home to Mindanao on weekend to rest, the more this historical bias against Mindanao will be hastened to be reversed.

*****

I’m seeing that the cops’ Bato Dela Rosa will be the next Mindanaoan senator by May 2016. Jan. 21 before that he’ll have his mandatory age of retirement.

*****

Hope is high that the graft issues vs. ex-Pres. Noy’s subalterns won’t cascade and prosper like the plunder case vs. Coloma and COA’s findings on unauthorized bonuses worth almost P1 B by PCSO’s execs as I would be tempted to say that Noy only indulged in seeing the macro and the big picture than the micro and ugly view on Bilibid.

*****

Why: If someone is accused of worst corruption in our country he reasons out he’s been selling jewelries, like that narco general mayor.

*****

For those who don’t hug with unwashed masa, when a Bisaya IDP (Illegal Drug Personality) says kaon, it means to take shabu. It was suyop, etc before. Kaon no more!

*****

If you’re a Duterte hater and you have dreamed him as part of your dream scene, then: you actually love him which you deny while awake. You’re not a true blue Dutertard if you haven’t dreamed Pres. and you with others as characters of your dream scene.

*****

We shall launch now Tuwid na Daan para sa Tunay na Pagbabago with PDP & LP coalition, after all the fist color is usually yellow in color.

*****

I wish there would be discreet TokHang for lawyers, doctors, teachers, mediamen, and managers. But a netizen snapped back to this post, and she said: “include the politicians like councilors, vice mayors, mayors up to the highest level.” She was short of saying include the congressmen and governors.
