Don’t Just Blame Pols; Blame Yourself As Well!

We are a society of 'entitled' lemmings...

We are a society of ‘entitled’ lemmings…

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” — Cicero

I was asked to comment on an article titled “The Myth of the “Bobo” Voter” posted on Facebook by a group called  CRUSADA-Christian Union for Socialist and Democratic Advancement.

A Facebooker sent a message to me that read:

Good day po. I just want to know what you think of this:

https://www.facebook.com/notes/crusada-christian-union-for-socialist-and-democratic-advancement/the-myth-of-the-bobo-voter/587086747978686

Reading the whole thing and the comments that followed left me feeling really disturbed and disappointed.

 My commentary is as follows:

It’s not really clear to me what the author of that article tries to attack. The author opened his/her piece by stating that “the Internet was ablaze with comments that categorized the votes of the Filipinos as either being “smart” or “bobo”, suggesting that people who have such kind of mentality want a society of an “enlightened class”. The author then proceeds to inform his/her reader that their group (the Christian Union for Socialist and Democratic Advancement) rejects the “unenlightened / enlightened voter dichotomy”.  Read more…

Delusional Academic Supremacism

April 27, 2013
Shut up and take the people's money, comrades!

Shut up and take the people’s money, comrades!

  • NOTE: I posted the following as a Facebook note. It is a short remark on this highly ridiculous op-ed that exposes its scribbler’s delusional academic supremacism or crude sense of superiority just because she’s a product of a government subsidized state university. 

This op-ed exposes the failure of public education in the Philippines. How can a supposedly schooled individual write an article utterly bereft of substance, of reason, and of basic logic? I think the author of this piece merely exposes her parochial mentality and inability to grasp basic concepts.

The utterly crude opinion piece titled “UP Bar None” states:

[T]o be an iskolar ng bayan is both a beauty and a burden. More so than any other university in the country, we are expected to give back. It is not an option, not an afterthought, but a duty we owe our taxpayers, our nation, and ourselves.  For most of us, the idea of accountability to our taxpayers comes in the form of academic excellence. To those who fund our education, who have offset the high price of learning, what better way to pay them back than by returning their investment, with interest?

Really? Oh please, spare us your superficial “give back” cliche, comrades.  Read more…

Boston Bombing and Liberals’ Political Correctness

April 27, 2013

  • NOTE: I posted the following as a Facebook note. It is a short remark on this news story that reveals Russia has been warning the United States government about the Boston Marathon bombing suspects’ mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev. 

Gun-grabbing NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to ban guns, yet the Tsarnaev brothers were almost on their way to mass murder New Yorkers with home-made pressure cooker bombs. Time to ban pressure cookers!!!

I am a great admirer of the Islamists’ war strategy. For centuries they used ‘economic warfare’ to weaken or destroy their enemy. Ever heard of the Barbary Pirates of the Mediterranean? America’s first overseas war under Pres. Thomas Jefferson was against the Islamic Barbary Pirates who were running a slave trade for more than 300 years.

The big difference is that over a century ago (or before 1917), their wars were waged in the name and under the banner of the Ottoman Empire. The dissolution of that Islamic empire led to the rise of “nationalism” in all post-Ottoman states. The long-term mission of the Muslim Brotherhood, created in Egypt a few years after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1917 is to unite all Islamic states under a single global caliphate.  Read more…

Pranking Parents With “Drug Dealer” Text Message

April 26, 2013

Here’s how to give your parents a ‘mild’ heart attack (lol).

Comedian Nathan Fielder instructed his ‘game’ Twitter followers to do the following:

BIto6DQCEAAmzl6 Fielder asked his twitter followers to send a second message to their parents reading: ‘Sorry ignore that txt. Not for you.’ ‘ Then tweet pic of their response,’ Fielder tweeted. The response was overwhelming. Read more…

Why Every Absolute Dictatorship is Doomed to Failure

April 22, 2013

Here’s a very interesting question from a Yahoo user:

“Can anyone explain to me how George Orwell can be a socialist and write a book like 1984?”

I tried to read Orwell’s 1984 in college, but I didn’t and couldn’t finish it. Orwell was a statist. It was in the 1930s when he started to consider himself a socialist.

My own evaluation of Orwell’s political views and affiliation is that he’s a CONFUSED statist or socialist. He’s one of those who embraced socialism yet denounced the totalitarian practices of socialist dictatorships. He supported socialism because he believed the system is pro-poor, pro-equality and against Fascism.  Read more…
