President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo recently delivered her 8th SONA, at ang first part ng speech nya ay solely dedicated to defending the VAT.
She reiterated the importance of VAT, stressing that already 4 billion pesos were put to good use, that is, on pro-poor programs like the conditional cash transfer and scholarships. Describing VAT as a “necessary sacrifice”, Arroyo called on crirics to just support her administration and not try to scrap the VAT. She insisted na mas makikinabang ang mayayaman pag tinanggal ang VAT lalo sa langis at kuryente. 84 percent ng oil consumers at 90 percent ng energy consumers ay ang mayayaman.
PGMA also relayed in her SONA the other long term goals na sana daw ay patuloy na maging katas ng VAT; like electricity for the poor, regional hospitals and benefits for elderly who are not covered by the SSS or GSIS.
Mula nang maupo sya bilang pangulo, the country has been on an upward trend in terms of economic growth. Big and consistent turnarounds. the peso has never been stronger for many years, of course, until the latest crises.
Yet, people see her as SEKRETARYA NI SATANAS.
Wait. Why do I sound like this, abogado nya bako? Generally, I am pro-Gloria. I mean, I personally believe that she CHEATED ON THE ELECTIONS against FPJ, or MAYBE TALAMAK ANG KURAPSYON sa present administration, but I give her a chance on those. Mapapalampas ko yun considering the country’s gains and her poise on handling tough times. There is no one who can lead the Philippines better than her.
I even consider her cheating as a patriotic act. She did us a favor, kasi pano nalang kung si FPJ nga ang naupo?! Nothing against Da King, in fact U respect his greatness being a film icon– but for President? HOLY BRA, wag naman sana. Knock on wood.
Tama si PGMA, political ambitions lang ng ibang detractors nya ang humihila sa bansa pababa. Pinababa nya ang singil sa text messaging by 50 percent. Astig. Excellent! Pero ang sabi ng karamihan: HINDI SYA SINCERE.
HOLY BRA! People, get a life, please! (Or ‘People, get a knife, please!’ Paki-saksak narin sa leeg nyo.)
Pag may nagawa syang mali or may hindi pa nagagawa, magsusuhol ang mga kalaban nya ng tao para sumama sa rally. Pag may ginawa syang tama, iisnabin at magsusuhol ng mga sasama sa rally. After their violent demonstrations, iiwanan nila ng basura ang mga kalsada. Nakakasira sa image ng bansa ang kabaliwan ng mga Pinoy. Pinatalsik si Marcos para ipalit si Cory, tinawag nila itong EDSA Revolution. Pinatalsik si Erap para ipalit si Gloria, EDSA Dos daw. Hindi ba nila nare-realize na sila-sila din ang pilit nagpapatalsik sa mga pilit na ipinapalit nila?
Sorry kung ma-offend man kita or something, but in my opinion tae ka kung galit na galit ka kay Gloria. Oh, crap. Majority nga pala ng Pinoy ay galit kay pandak. Bahala na si Dark Knight.
Heck, mawawalan ako ng readers.
