This is a solemn promise, friends. I will keep this blog up even if the unthinkable happens.
So far, it has been disappointing result with more than a quarter of the total votes counted (as of 10:30 p.m.)
Delos Reyes 15k
The upside is that more than half of the votes have yet to be counted. And Noynoy’s co-brat Mar Roxas is not in first place (although I am still anxious about Binay as he’s a known Aquino loyalist).
When I voted this morning, I was outraged at finding no less than six yellow-shirt clad “observers” camping in the classroom where voters of five precincts lined up. The yellows were definitely not Bangon Pilipinas supporters — I’ll tell you that much.
If I hadn’t made a fuss about it, those Ngoyngoyistas would have stayed there unfairly — eating snacks and making a mockery out of election protocol and rules.
What was worse was the Board of Election Inspectors chairman was not doing anything to rectify the situation — and even mocked us who called her attention to it. “Why don’t you talk to them?” she arrogantly said.
Ganyan ang laban na tapat. Elections pa lang pinapakita na ang kayabangan at pandaraya.
Did you also see the preponderance of yellow shirts? One proclaimed “Our future is not for sale.”
Oh, really? On the front it should have said: “This voter does not think.”
I take heart and maintain hope that the disturbing trend reverses anytime soon, but if it doesn’t, we should take heart that we voted and DIDN’T choose the yellow man with a hollow and false image.
Di tayo nagpaloko.
But again, we must take everyone to task — everyone responsible for the travesty. ABS-CBN, The Philippine Daily Inquirer, MBC, and every media person who knowingly ignored the issues against Noy and purveyed lies and spin about him. Six years of mismanagement and Kamag-anak, Inc., God forbid, will be on your conscience.
P.S. Winnie Monsod, you can go to heck. I see the Abnoy every time I see your image on TV. Winnie Monsod is a big hypocrite who laments that the she sees the Senatorial slate composed of old names who didn’t necessarily perform.
And you support NOYNOY AQUINO — with a famous last name and nothing more. Look in the mirror, Winnie.
Yes, see yourself.
