Well, yes, I take a look at my life every day. I try to live it as upright and well as I can. How about you? And, more importantly, how about our dear President? I mean, it’s certainly fair to say that what I do has much less effect than what our new President does. And that’s why we need to be critical and observant about how our Chief Executive manages the country.
And, by the way, yes. I am the god of this blog. You can create your own if you want. And don’t greet me with your plastic “God bless you.” Salamat.

In other news, as if he hasn’t have enough in his hands, Mr. President is interfering in matters of the Senate.
Maybe he thinks he is still a Senator.
Maybe he thinks that as President he can very damn well do anything he wants. Ever heard of the separation of the three branches of government, sir? So keep your hands off the Sen. Trillanes case, then. As PDI reports: “President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino’s order for the Department of Justice to review the case of detained Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV was tantamount to presidential meddling in the judiciary and of the Senate, especially with the chamber having only one week to decide on whom to install as its leader, two veteran senators said on Sunday.”
But, of course, we know that there is much at stake in the Senate. In a week, we will be knowing who the next Senate President will be.
The LP mafia is scrambling mightily to get the numbers so they can install Sen. Kiko Pangilinan. Experience-wise, however, it is apparent that Ate Shawie’s hubby doesn’t hold a candle to Sen. Manny Villar of the Nacionalista Party.
But, hey, this is the Philippines. We’ve seen weirder stuff — like a non-starter becoming president.
Going back to P-Noy, if he’s in a pakialamero mood, why doesn’t he check on Sen. Ping Lacson? Oh, I forgot. Kakampi nga pala. Done deal already.
It pays to check on someone who’s not yet in your back pocket.
