Frothing Politics with Filipinos

The blogosphere seem to be frothing with topics on how to run the Philippines these days (heck, how to run the United States even). I usually just rely on MLQ3 for these things, and God knows I link him once a month for all the wonderful link-summaries he’s written. All the rest, I take to be yosi buddies – people who help keep my brain working while doing something totally unproductive. Lolz!

Today a friend told me that the Philippines actually tops Google searches for politics; almost twice the searches compared to the United States which has four times the population. I told her, “that’s no surprise” since politics is as much a part of the Filipino as Flor de Luna, Anna Luna, Ula (ang batang gubat), Mara Clara, and Marimar.

i iz write tagalogz below coz it’z not for thoze who dont understandz.

Sinungaling si Toni Gonzaga! Hindi Pinoy Big Brother ang drama ng totoong buhay kundi Pulitika. Isipin niyo, may bida, may kontra-bida at may sobrang laking supporting cast (ensemble daw). Tapos may loveteam, pero yung loveteam hindi magkatuluyan kasi sobrang lupit ng kontrabida – akalain mo, kotrolado lahat!

Si bida, inaapi ng husto, kulang na lang yata magpakababa, lumuhod at magmakaawa. Drama ang forte niya kaya iyak siya ng iyak – umiiyak siya habang naghuhugas ng plato, habang naglalaba, habang nagluluto. Dito niya nadedevelop ang kanyang mga sobrang hit na words of wisdom.

“Tignan mo yung mga bayabas… pitasin natin upang ibenta sa bayan,” yung mga ganung hirit! Huwaw ang lalim, naiiyak na rin ako.

Ngunit maski ganun, maski iyak siya ng iyak, maski alipustahin pa siya ng lahat ng tao, at maski ano pang ipadalang delubyo ng kanyang mga kalaban, hindi siya matitinag sapagkat alam ng lahat… kakampi niya ang Diyos! Hindi na kailangan ng LaSalle brothers o Pink sisters. Basta pumasok na si Lord, talo na lahat!

Pero meron pang isang aspeto ang soap operang pinoy – ang ratings, bow – at alam naman nating sa pinas, ang Ratings …dinadaya, dinadagdag-bawas! Kasi pag mataas ang rating, malaki ang kita. At habang may kita, tuloy lang ang soap opera. Minsan nga akala mo tapos na, tapos biglang may part 2 pa… kaya lang iba-iba na ang magkaka-kampi. Iba-iba na rin ang twists and turns. Ganun lang ng ganun hanggang makarating sa grand finale!

At ang grand finale, big time! Kanya-kanyang gimik ang mga production companies dito. Pwedeng premiere night, pwede ring fans day. Kung gusto niyo, may motorcade pa – tapos kitakits na lang. At dahil maraming dadagsang audience, dapat malaki ang venue – Ultra, Ayala, Edsa.. pili ka na lang. Nare-reserve naman lahat yan eh.

Last but not least, siyempre dapat may Press para naman makita ng buong mundo ang mga special gathering na ito kasama ang mga fans, pati na rin ang kanilang banners, streamers, body art, megaphones, at effigies! Lolz!

Pero wag niyong kalimutan, pagkatapos ng grand finale, pagkatapos ng soap operang ito, meron ulit bago. At malamang, yun, mas malupit!

Yay! Palakpakan!

Anyway, fruityoaty’s got a new post… finally! Fishy-fishy should go back reading highschool / immature blogs nao coz the smart folks of the Philippines may be breeding opportunists.

But in parting.. Politics is probably the one thing I should blame the government for. Lolz! Not only because they suck at it, but because they suck all of us into it. Look at your boardrooms, classrooms, parents’ teachers associations, the homeowners association, the student councils, etc. I’m a lawyer. You’re a lawyer. He’s a lawyer. We’re all lawyers. EyeLovet!

See you all in hell!

  1. Sorry for the late response. Thanks for the warm welcome back.

    I don’t know if I’m really back (the real me, the one that used to find blogging… fun). I “thought” I was back… and the comments I received on my last post (2 weeks ago) were nice, but they didn’t motivate me to blog again after that… Have to find internal motivation, I guess.

    Every time I login to my blog to write something, anything… I log right out. I’d rather be doing something else, like studying French. Maybe when I come back, I’ll be blogging in French. 😛
