The count is winding down to a close and we should expect, barring any unforeseen occurrence or expose of massive fraud, six years of President Noynoy Aquino.
Did just give you the creeps – an immense feeling of dread and hopelessness?
Oh, I forget. There are readers out there who think of us as sore losers – fomenting divisiveness and dissent when we should be rallying behind God’s anointed.
The problem with that is that he is not OUR anointed. He is a minority president, despite the big lead – or so they number show. I also doubt God had anything to do with the victory. So, stop blaspheming already.
As children who were taught to predict the world through science and logic, we learned the comfort of causality. If you do a certain thing, there would be a certain – predictable – result.
Translated into working-class lingo, this notion of predictability extends to more practical, useful terms – rather than just a change of color when you stick that litmus paper in your kilikili.
We learn instinctively that a person who has done nothing groundbreaking, revolutionary, or even industrious in his lifetime will, most likely, continue on the same path.
So much time and brain cells, thus, have been spent on HR (human resources) in an ever-evolving system to hire the best people, and keep them sharp.
Alas, the Filipino people still have a lot of evolving to do, in terms of being discerning about their candidates. That being said, what else can we do?
The rest of us can just roll over and die?
No. What then? Do we throw our support, like good soldiers, to our incoming Commander-in-Chief? Well, yes, that would be the patriotic, nay, Christian thing to do, as far as some Oh Noy critics go.
Am I being divisive with the continued existence of this anti-Noy blog? I think the word is CRITICAL.
We already know the mainstream media are not on our side. The honeymoon period of Mr. Noynoy Aquino begins not when he assumes office. It began when he declared his intent to run. Now, tell me, is that being fair? Is that being Christian? Is that being righteous?
Now, we have seen how Noynoy makes incredible blunders even before assuming office.
He reneges on a promise to stop smoking. He wants to be sworn in by a barangay captain. He wants to overturn appointments. I mean, I’m not a GMA fan at all, but whatever happened to the so-called unity he wants? The whole campaign of Noynoy was predicated on hate; it seems the hating will continue.
And I’M BEING DIVISIVE.
Let the fun continue!
