Malu Fernandez is Back!

Malu FernandezYes, our “favorite” coñolist errr columnist Malu Fernandez is back the queen of shallow is biik (piglet) errr back with her ignorant rant but this time around she knows better not to touch OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers). Perhaps, playing safe and not wanting to get burned again or maybe learned a lesson or two that in trying desperately to feel superior one does not have to belittle a huge sector that keeps the economy of the nation afloat. Thanks to Karlo of Pinoy Blogero for alerting us on an article by Malu Fernandez, apparently a reaction to Baklang AJ's This Gucci Gang does Coke!.

I would have let it pass; unfortunately there she goes again with her ignorant rant on people’s reaction to the biggest scandal in Philippine society caused by the thieving impunity of the Gloria M. Arroyo’s administration as mere whiners claiming that it was about our indecisiveness really shows her shallow perception, to quote:

It’s just like all this hullabaloo about ousting GMA. You deposed ERAP in Edsa Dos. Now you’re unhappy with his replacement. Make up your minds. (For the record I’m ot pro anybody I’m pro whatever lesser evil is out there). You can’t overthrow one resident then decide you made a mistake with your second choice. I’s not like buying a green Hermes bag and suddenly deciding, oops I should have gotten the black one instead. Unfortunately that’s the kind of nation we have become, a bunch of wishy-washy whiners who whine about everything under the sun and found the blog sphere to be the new medium for whining. Yes we do what we have to do as a nation to get things done and stop corruption and evil (I’m all for that) but we never seem to be happy with what we have, hence the complaining and whining. It just never stops.

Gloria's Pride & Glory

It is unfortunate and at the same time a reflection on the liepapers’ credibility and poor standard in hiring a shallow “writer” dipping her fingers on subject she knows nothing about comparing it with shopping experience is so absurd and ridiculous.

What drug is this fatso errr girl on? Looking at the problem with an attitude of judging political performance on a scale of lesser evil is a shallow attempt at accepting the nature of politics resulting in the Philippines as the basket case of Asia and pretty soon at the rate these leaders plunder the nation may even go down at the bottom of Africa’s economic development.

One is allowed to make a fool of themselves, that is the essence of living in a free country and she can stay that way because she is fixated on accessorizing herself with name brand items unfortunately wearing expensive name brands does not necessarily make one look better. It is not what you wear that counts but what you are deep within that determines your character as a person. Maybe if she can spare a minute or 2 she can learn something from a quote on "Increasing Poverty Caused by Corruption" by Neal Cruz one of the “whiners” if we go by her standards:


Actually we don’t need the statistics just released by the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) to know that poverty is worsening because we can see it day by day. Nevertheless, the NSCB has made it official: One out of every three Filipinos is poor. The Inquirer editorial last Saturday spelled it out very clearly: Within the presidency of GMA, from 2003 to 2006, the number of poor families—those that earn less than P6,274 a month, the amount a family of five needs to be able to afford the basic necessities—grew from 4 million in 2003 to 4.7 million in 2006. The number of poor Filipinos grew by 3.8 million, from 23.8 million to 27.6 million. The number of families that did not earn enough to buy the minimum amount of food they needed grew from 1.7 million to 1.9 million—meaning 14.6 percent of the population, 12.2 million souls, were not eating enough.

While the likes of Malu Fernandez mouths her lesser evil which in effect gives a thumbs up to plunderers we see 1 in every 3 Filipinos joining the ranks of the poor with 1.9 million families hardly able to put food on their table and here she is talking about her name brand items dreaming of shopping spree while 12.2 million Filipinos are slowly dying of hunger.

My unsolicited advice to a shallow pretentious name brand addict is to once in a while stay away from “reading” name brand ads (those are not the news, lol) but try reading the articles instead if not go grab a book or something for a change… better yet here go to "Economic Gains Crumbles in the Bukol Republic" where you can find the link to ADB’s “Philippines: Critical Hindrance to Development” and hopefully you can still redeem yourself. Lastly and I suggest you take this seriously that is, if you are capable of doing so....... pray that the social volcano does not erupt because the first thing that disposessed angry people will pounce on are shallow pretentious thinking rich people insensitive to the flight of fellow Filipinos.
