Marcos Burial Protest Failed To Impress

  1. The Marcos burial protest failed to impress and it failed miserably. Shaking my head at the brainwashed students who were fed with the lies of Paid Yellow Media, Paid Yellow Newspapers, Commies and the Yellow Aquino Textbooks since elementary days. They can’t even fill the Luneta Park or cause some heavy traffic because there’s only a handful who showed up and they can’t fool the majority of the masses to join this bigotry, even the protesters in the provinces can be counted using only your fingers and that’s pitiful to say the least. Cory Aquino’s Democrazy is a complete failure in the sense that corruption (after President Marcos regime) didn’t end nor cease in her administration, or even in Fidel Ramos’ administration, or even in PNoy’s term. This so called Black Friday Protest against the Marcos  heroes burial is a complete failure and slap in the faces of those who organize this laughable event. How many people supports and already forgave the Marcos family? Count Bong Bong Marcos’ 2016 VP election results and you’ll know we are the silent majority. Period.

ARCHBISHOP SOCRATES VILLEGAS’ MOONSTRUCK LUNATIC JESUS!

Wordpress_SocVillegas

I’ve only known Archbishop Socrates Villegas because he is a fierce critic of President Rodrigo Duterte after the latter said that the Catholic Church is the ‘most hypocritical institution’ as he lambasted its bishops for supposedly attempting to erode public support for him before the May 9 elections. Now, browsing through my old pile of newspapers I can’t believe my eyes after I’ve read an old article on the Allure section of The Philippine Star newspaper dated March 15, 2015. In an article written by Michelle Dayrit-Soliven in her Family Jewels column titled Crazy Love.

On her article she mentioned that Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates ‘Soc’ Villegas gave a Lenten recollection to their group at the St. Marie Eugenie Chapel in Assumption San Lorenzo. She said Archbishop Soc Villegas started a thought-provoking prayer with these words… “Dear Lord, trouble us. Disturb us, so that we can become better, Amen.” Why would God disturb or trouble us so you we can become better? Who in his right frame of mind will ask God to give him trouble or disturbance?It’s ridiculous and contradicting, it’s like asking our parents to give us junk foods so we can live a healthy lifestyle. When in prayer Paul teaches us in Philippians 4:6-7 and we read “Be anxious for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” God will give us His peace through prayer and supplications, and His peace shall keep our hearts and minds through Jesus Christ and not the other way around like what the Archbishop was asking God for trouble and disturbance for us to become better. If God is with us He would not trouble or disturb us because God knows what is good for His children like in the book of Jeremiah 29:11 and we read “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end.” God will give us peace and NOT trouble, and for us to become better we should not depart from the law of God in the book of Joshua 1:8 we read “This book of law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.” This is the way for us to become better, we should follow the law of God so we can be productive both physically and spiritually. How can you become better if you’re asking trouble from God? Do you understand that asking God to trouble us is a terrible thing? Let us read in 1 Samuel 16:14 it says “the spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him. And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubled you.” If Archbishop Socrates Villegas want God to trouble him too then so be it.

SocVillegas

Archbishop Soc Villegas also said that “Have you ever wondered why Christmas is always December 25, but Easter Sunday is never on the same date each year? It differs because the reckoning of Easter is based on the full moon.” Wow, so the Easter Sunday that the Catholics celebrated annually is not based on the Bible but it was based on the full moon?! So it’s not Biblical. This is what separates Christianity from the Catholic faith by not basing their beliefs on what is written in the Bible. They are so blinded by the teachings passed on to them by their council and false prophets. So Jesus Christ said in the book of Matthew 15:9 and we read “But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” And not of God I believe.

SocVillegas3

The Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan continued his ignorance by saying that “Have you ever heard of the legendary effects of a full moon on some people? They become moonstruck lunatics and it makes them crazy in love. That’s Jesus! Jesus fell deeply in love with us…” What?! Are you implying that Jesus Christ because of His crazy love for us is like unto a moonstruck lunatic? God forbid. What is the definition of the love of Christ in contrast to the love of some moonstruck lunatic? Moonstruck lunatics’ definition of love is called “Eros,” and the love of God and Jesus Christ for mankind is called “Agape” and not “Eros!” Clearly Archbishop Soc Villegas’ definition of love pertaining Jesus Christ’s love for us is erotic in nature because he compared it to the effect of the moon on some people who were crazy in love, and it’s not even scientific. The Archbishop continued his nonsense with “You will never understand how much Jesus loves us! It takes a crazy man to do everything He did for people who didn’t even thank Him, betrayed Him, doubted and hurt Him. Yet He is so blinded by His crazy love for us. He has done the craziest things, including death to convince us of how much He loves us.” I’m rolling my eyes in disbelief after reading these statements from an Archbishop. Jesus did the craziest things like what, His death? How dare you call the sacrifice and death of Jesus Christ on the cross as a product of some crazy love? I believe Archbishop Socrates Villegas is crazy by saying these stupid statements, but not Jesus. You can’t even find the word crazy in the Bible so how can you described the death of Christ as crazy love? In the Webster dictionary the word Crazy means “full of cracks and flaws, bizarre, absurd, foolish, insane, nonsensical, etc…”I can’t accept the fact that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross is foolish, insane or even nonsensical because it saved us from our sins and we are sanctified by it. Let us read in the book of Hebrews 10:10 and we read “We are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” And 1 John 1:7 “The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleansed us from all our sins.” It didn’t said that Jesus’ crazy love cleansed us from all our sins!The blasphemed-filled litany of Archbishop Soc Villegas continued with “It takes a crazy man to do everything He did for people who didn’t even thank Him…” I smell sacrilege all over the place,and again, Jesus Christ was compared to a crazy man because He did everything for the people (like giving His life) to those who didn’t even thank Him. The Archbishop also said “We need cleansing so we can recognize Jesus…” yeah, straight from the horses mouth, you finally admitted that you didn’t even recognize Jesus Christ from the Bible. You really need some cleansing Archbishop Villegas so you can discern the real Jesus from the moonstruck lunatic Jesus that you are so fond of talking. A word of advice, do not say things about Jesus Christ or take away what is written or adding imaginary stories about what He did which is not Biblical in nature or suffer grave consequence, let us read Revelation 22:18 “If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add him plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life…”

ANG ATING MGA NINUNO

NEGRITO

Ang mga negrito o ita ay matatagpuan sa lahat ng dako ng Pilipinas. Ayon sa kasaysayan ay sila ang kauna-unahang tao sa bansa. Ang pangangaso at kaunting kaalaman sa pagsasaka ang ikinabubuhay nila.

INDONESYO

Sila ay nagmula sa Timog-Silangang Asya. Sila ay may mahahaba at tuwid na buhok, at kayumanggi ang balat. Ang mga Ifugao at Kalinga sa Mountain province ay mga inanak ng mga unang Indonesyo na pumalaot sa ating bayan.

MALAYO

 

Tatlong pangkat ng Malay ang dumating sa pulo. Barangay ang tawag sa pamayanan nila. Ang unang pangkat ay ninuno ng mga etniko ng Hilagang Luzon. Ang ikalawa ay ninuno ng mga Bisaya, Ilokano, Pampagueño at Tagalog. Ang ikatlo ay ninuno ng mga Muslim sa Mindanao.

TAGALOG

Pinaniniwalaang nangaling ang Tagalog sa salitang taga-ilog o mga taong nakatira malapit sa ilog. Gumagamit sila ng barangayen, maliliit na banka, para makarating sa ating pulo. Mahuhusay silang mga mangingisda at magsasaka.

MARANAO

Ang Maranao ang isa sa tatlong pinakamalaking grupo ng mga Muslim sa Pilipinas. Isa sa kanilang katangian ang kahusayan nila sa musika. Nakaka- gawa sila ng ibat-ibang instrumento na lumilikha ng tunog tulad ng gong na yari sa tanso.

IGOROT

Ang mga Igorot ay kilala sa kanilang kasipagan, at katapatan sa kanilang pinagmulan. Ang lupa ang pangunahing pinagkukunan nila ng kabuhayan. Ang salitang Igorot ay likha ng mga Espanyol, na ang ibig sabihin ay Golot (mountain chain) at idinagdag ang unlaping ‘I’ (nakatira sa).

Vice Presidential Debates Philippines 2016

alan_peter_cayetano

 

Isa lang ang napansin ko sa debateng ito. Si Senador Bong Bong Marcos.

* * *

Bakit kaya siya paboritong banatan ng mga kasama niyang tumatakbo sa pagka-Bise Presidente? Eh hindi naman siya si former President FERDINAND E. Marcos. Just curious. Nangunguna na kaya siya sa Vice Presidential Survey? Sabi nga ng kawikaang tagalog, “Ang puno binabato dahil maraming bunga.”

* * *

Isa lang ang napansin kong bitter. Si Senador Alan Peter Cayetano. Most of his speech revolves around personal attacks against Senator Bong Bong Marcos. Wala siyang masyadong binanggit na plano kung papano niya pabubutihin ang kabuhayan ng mga Filipino. Halos lahat ng ginawa niya sa debate ay “mud slinging” towards the personality of Senator Bong Bong Marcos.

* * *

One thing that’s good though is that Senator Bong Bong Marcos didn’t stoop down to Senator Cayetano’s level of thinking. Senator Cayetano proved to be a traditional politician and I won’t vote for a trapo. Senator Bong Bong Marcos kept his cool amidst a storm of criticisms and came out a winner. Makikita mo may pinagaralan talaga at hindi pumapatol sa mga basagulero.

* * *

 Parang batang inagawan ng candy si Senador Alan Peter Cayetano lahat nalang ng ginawa niya at sinabi niya puro paninisi sa past mistakes ng mga Marcos he was sounding more like Abnoy Aquino and he isn’t even a member of the Yellow Army.

* * *

Leni Robredo is nice, sweet and cool which in the current state of the nation is not the kind of leader that we need right now. I know her husband is a good example of public service and I’ve heard a lot of good things that she did in Bicol but we need a leader that can impose discipline on his fellow politicians. A Vice President who can rule the country with an iron fist with the President.

* * *

Senator Chiz Escudero is annoying at best. I don’t want to have a Vice-President who speaks like a race horse announcer. And I don’t know what he was saying most of the time. I also thought he was reading a script with a lot of comas.

* * *

Senator Gringo Honasan is a gentleman. Wala akong makitang bahid politika sa kanyang mga sagot. He was straight to the point, hindi siya mahilig magbato ng basura sa kanyang mga katunggali. Ang ginawa ni Senador Honasan ay ipakilala ang kanyang plataporma para sa mga kababayan natin and that’s nice.

* * *

Isa sa mga highlights ng debate ay yung barahin ni Senador Antonio Trillanes si Senador Alan Peter Cayetano tungkol sa sinasabi niyang “6 months wala ng krimen sa Luzon, Visayas at Mindanao!” ang sagot ni Senador Trillanes “Wag tayong mag bolahan dito! Si Mayor Duterte matagal naging Mayor sa Davao City pero hanggang ngayon may krimen pa rin kaya paano niyo aalisin ang kriminalidad sa loob lang ng anim na buwan! number four ang Davao City na may highest crime rate sa Pilipinas!” I laughed so hard because I know what Senator Trillanes said was true.

* * *

Here is Senator Marcos adding insult to injury by saying this to Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, “Kasalanan ko ba kung mas gusto ako ng mga supporter ni Duterte kaysa sa iyo?!” I know it’s true because there are Duterte supporters who were rooting for a Duterte-Marcos Presidency.

* * *

Mali kasi ang diskarte ni Senador Alan Peter Cayetano eh. I’m looking for a candidate na may magandang plataporma para sa bansa kaso nadismaya ako sa kanya kasi puro personal attacks kay Senator Marcos ang ginawa niya. He was desperate because he was lagging in Vice-Presidential surveys so paraan niya siguro yun para wag siya maunahan ng iba. Typical crab mentality evident in his being.

* * *

I was pretty entertained by the Vice Presidential debates. It was a lot of fun looking at this candidates and choosing who’s deserving of my vote.

Mar Roxas Wants His Feud With Rody Duterte To End Into A Fistfight!

Wordpress_MarDuterte

Mar Roxas Rody Duterte Fistfight.

It’s a shame that Philippine Presidential candidates would engage in this silly kind of word war. One belongs to a wealthy family in the Visayas and trying too hard to convince the poor that he is a “Mr. Palengke” and an extention of “Daang Matuwid,” and the other was a cursing, womanizing, son-of-a-b*tch tough-as-nails Mayor of Davao city.

* It all started when Mar Roxas said that Davao city being tagged as “the safest city in the Philippines” was just a myth.

* Presidential hopeful Rody Duterte felt insulted and retaliated by telling everyone that Mar Roxas was telling a lie when he said that he graduated from Wharton School of Economics. It was a myth according to the mayor.

* Rody Duterte even said that he would slap Mar Roxas if they ever meet. The Davao mayor thought Mar Roxas was behind the rumors that he has cancer.

* Mar Roxas obviously irate at Duterte’s bullying said that he would not engage Duterte in a slap match. He instead challenge Rody Duterte into a fistfight! “Ako galit ako sa mga bully. Galit ako sa mga nagsasamantala. Galit ako sa mga naghahari-harian. Galit ako sa mga taong akala nila sila lang ang kapangyarihan dito sa bansa natin.” He even gave his residential address to Mayor Duterte and said he will be waiting for him to show up. “Gawin mo na lang kung anong gusto mong gawin. At sampalan? Bakit pa sampalan, pambabae ‘yan, suntukan na lang? Di ba? Simpleng-simple lang ito.”

* The question now is this, will the tough talking Davao city mayor be up to the challenge? Or hide in cower with his tail tucked between his legs?

* I don’t know if Mayor Rody Duterte was just baiting Mar Roxas to expose his true self by losing his cool and being a hot-headed prick on national tv. I have no idea, but these men needs to face each other in a formal debate like gentlemen and not like two bickering school girls.

Netizens what do you think?

The Divisoria Sidewalk Portrait Artist

I saw this old man sitting on a “bangkito” beside a murky sidewalk doing portraits for a living in Sto. Cristo St. in Divisoria recently. He uses vellum board, cheap coloring pencils, a mongol and an eraser. He even uses a small magnifying glass! I asked him how much he charged for a portrait and he replied with “just enough to make ends meet.” This is proof that you don’t need expensive tools to create fantastic portraits and being an artist, the talent never leaves you even in your twilight years. Kudos to you Manong artist, apir!
