Fiesta Days

Since the revelations regarding the almost-consummated $135 million bribery scandal, many of our traditional politicians have been in very good spirits. Each time damaging information would be divulged, their personal share in the ever-expanding largesse being freely distributed would appreciate.

Small proof of this would be the many pages of expensive paid advertisements extolling support for the way politics is conducted here, emanating from all these groups of Governors, Vice Governors, Mayors, Vice Mayors, Councilors down to the lowliest ward leaders. Money, meant for education and healthcare and food is flowing.

The rest of us are indignant. We simply want the truth. We want truthful and direct answers. But we are not getting any. The investigations will continue. Many of these solemn and self-righteous scumbags will continue posing and preening. And there will be more “Unity Walks” and photo opportunities celebrating the strength of our political caste system.

The Show will go on.

Brod, you know how this thing goes. I'd say some local officials just follow what the boss tells them to do "cover up your tracks of corruptions!" More than being indignant about Filipinos being played stupid while on hungry stomach, I cannot blame others who act rather radicall and bolder in their steps towards "cleansing" the corruption ridden Philippine government.

Almost forgot, I hope you'll give in to our invitations of joining The Blog Rounds (TBR), the Blog Carnival of Filipino MDs aiming to get its voice into the mainstream blogosphere and into the social media.

Keep the new ideas coming brod!
