EDSA, a Lost Cause?

BARE THE LIST - SUBMISSION SITE FOR BOGUS PARTY LIST NOMINEES (lets do our part be vigilant and if you know any of those bogus candidates submit their names at Akbayan's site)

I checked on Martin Bautista's blog to read his latest entry titled Cry for what we lost a you tube on EDSA which he linked in his site. 21 years have passed after that event of pride and glory proclaimed as one of our biggest contribution to world peace and democracy our nation has gone nowhere and slid farther down the muck of poverty and desperation.

What happened? How did it happen? How can we allow this to happen? Ahhhhh desperation truly sets in but some say we are our own enemy thus we retrogressed instead of progressed. Are we really our own enemy? Are we supposed to pin the blame on "us" the very people suffering and victimized by crooks in politicians clothing?

Fraud is everywhere, opportunist scammers passing themselves off as Party List and fixers for a fee for a backdoor pass to tongress so they can partake of the loot. Yes the loot better known as:

P65 Million in Pork Barrel

P35K a Month Salary

P200K a Month Published Expenses

P50K – 100K a Month Allowance from the Speaker

P100K – 150K Christmas Gift from the Speaker

P100K – 150K Occasional Gift from Malacanang (Christmas)

People risk life and limbs for these to oust a dictator, so tongress people can fleece the national coffers dry? We have not even touch the Senate, the Presidential Office and those in different elected position 17K in all.

Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo a fitting tribute to those who sacrificed and risked everything to regain our freedom from the conjugal dictatorship. Indeed a people’s triumph over tyranny, unfortunately taken hostage by our “leaders” insatiable greed and lust for power. We don’t deserve this and those who sacrificed their lives only to be treated by ingrates that shamelessly brought us to this pathetic stage. What have we got to show for it? We now have 10 percent of the population driven out of the country for lack of livelihood opportunity.

An accomplishment they say as administration after administration parrots their hollow accomplishment of whose administration can send out the most human exports. A multitude of modern day heroes they say or is it slaves to fleece them dry of their dollar earnings. A nation mired in poverty and uncontrollable corruption so prevalent it has seeped into our culture and collective mindset, one can only wonder if this nation is worth dying for? Sad indeed……….
