Satire: Napildi si Bradley Tungod sa Hurim-hurim ni Nanay Dionesia

Sa wala pa magsugod ang sangka sa iyang anak nga si Manny batok kang Timothy Bradley, nakit-an sa camera si Nanay Dionesia nga gipatong ang palad sa ulo ni Manny, naggunit ug rosaryohan samtang nagyamyam ug orasyon.

Sa dihang nagsangka na si Manny ug si Bradley, kahibulongan nga bisan dili maigo si bradley malagpot man sa layo ug usahay magtuyok-tuyok ang lawas niini.

Nasakpan sa camera si Nanay Dionesia nga gapusil-pusil ug gapatuyok-tuyok sa iyang tudlo, mura ug sniper nga pinapiyong ang usa ka mata samtang gipunting niya si Bradley

PANAPI

buhat nga dili mangila
mokutkot sa bulsa’s mabiktima
hangtod mahurot ug mabangkarota

kaban sa pangagamhanan,
mga binilyong salapi sa katawhan,
gipanapi, giwariwari, gipalusotan, pagkamakalilisang

paborito nilang lingkoran ang “wheelchair”
mga politiko, dili gyud manumbaling sa “electric chair”
kini unta ang haom ug tukma nilang padulngan…

pagkadimalasa, mga katawhan nagminghoy
sa pangurakot, si JUAN DE LA CRUZ ang makaluluoy
kanunay’ng pasaligan, tinuod iladlad, pero ilad-ilad ang kasayorang gipalamoy

HAGIT: Ang “Bayani” at “Lingkod-Kapwa” ay mga Banal na Salita

Maimulat natin ang ating mga kababayan na ang salitang bayani at lingkod-kapwa ay sagrado.. hindi ito nakukuha sa paligsahan, nomination, internet voting or text voting. Ang pagiging bayani ay hindi nakakamit sa paramihan, sa kasikatan.

Magtulongan tayo na maparangalan ang mga tunay na bayani at lingkod-kapwa.. Pero paano?

Sa pamamagitan ng pagbabago ng mga bulok na kaisipan ng lipunan na ang mga katangiang ito ay natatangi sa iilan lamang. Ipapamulat natin sa lipunan na ang ikakisiya ng tunay na bayani at lingkod-bayan ay kung may gagaya at susunod sa kanilang mga ginagawa. Tutularan kung papano sila naglilingkod sa kapuwa at gawing panuntunan kung papano sila nakipaglaban para sa prinsipyo para sa katarungan, karapatan at kagalingan.

Filipino graduates face tough economy

It is graduation season in the Philippines, and one can’t help but wax nostalgic about youthful indulgences and daydreams about making it to the top. Unlike Saudi nationals whose own government has made it a mission to “nationalize” the workplace, in the Philippines, the jobless compete not only with each other but also with those returning from abroad as well as hundreds of thousands of fresh graduates. Unfortunately, our society has an unspoken rule of favoring young applicants over the more experienced, but older ones. The Philippines has no law against age discrimination in the workplace. The economic burden has shifted to the shoulders of the youth.

I am sure that Filipinos in Saudi Arabia have their own stories to tell about sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, and even grandkids who are new graduates. One needs only to look at the timelines and newsfeeds on Facebook to see graduation pictures galore, with the parents standing right beside the latest star in the family. Why not? When our kids graduate, we, too, get an invisible diploma for a job well done, as parents.

Like a bolt of lightning from the clear blue sky, the news broke out wherein the Ombudsman recommended for the indictment of Senators Jinggoy Estrada, Manong Johnny Enrile and Bong “PANDAY” Revilla.

Momentarily, we may heave a sigh of relief just thinking out loud that the wheels of justice move slowly at a snail’s pace. Is this historic? Not too long ago, we witnessed how a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court was unseated by the Senate Impeachment court presided over by Manong Johnny Enrile, who is now fighting for his political life.

“Unsa man unta Buddy? Nagduka na man gud si Dong Lapoy.” naaburido si Day Darling.

After the hoopla, the hard work begins
Susan V. Ople

There is absolutely no doubt that the signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) was a historic milestone, not just for the Philippines, but also for Southeast Asia, if not the world.

It took 17 years of on-again and off-again talks for a final peace agreement between the two parties to be signed, and so the hoopla that greeted the formal signing ceremony at the Palace grounds was justified, and expected.

What happens next? The Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) chaired by MILF leader and chief peace negotiator Mohagher Iqbal is expected to submit the formal draft of the Bangsamoro Basic Law to President Aquino this week.
Within the BTC, the government representatives are actually the minority, with seven designated members compared to the eight members handpicked by the MILF. The BTC is a government body that operates on a regular budget subject to the usual liquidation procedures. One can say that the BTC is the MILF’s first taste of actual governance, under the “daang matuwid” (straight path) leadership approach of the president.

GRADWASYON

kinapungkayan sa mga damgo,
kalamposan sa kahibalo,
linikit nga diploma,
pudyot nga medalya,
balos kini’s kahago nga nabuntagan,
abotanan sa hagip-ot nga agianan,

luyo sa gabiing nangandila,
hadla sa katimawa,
kalisdanan nga nagbaha,
luyo ning pagsulay’ng daw lawalawa,
sa gradwasyon,
katagbawan sa hinaguan imong makuha.

mangunay, sa kaugalingon manaway
ilabi na’g wala pay hilam-os ug panudlay,

kining tanan pilit nimong dawaton,
sa selfie ikaw pailhon sa tinuod nga katahom,

Cadet Cudia has what it takes to be a loyal, honorable soldier of the people

Cadet Cudia has what it takes to be a loyal, honorable soldier of the people
By Dionesio Grava
First Posted in ireport.cnn.com

The grossly underhanded manner authorities and the cadet body of the Philippine Military Academy regarding l’affaire Cudia is symptomatic of the arrogance and contempt those in the military hierarchy perceive the civilian populace. Spawned by the unmitigated licentiousness and profligacy of the Marcos dictatorship, many of those in the uniformed services had gone berserk with whatever pretensions of honorable moorings and had turned their greed and cruelty on the unarmed people who were responsible for shouldering their livelihoods and upkeep in the first place. It has been years now since the dictatorship was dealt a death blow by an aroused citizenry but has all its evil vestiges been wiped off as well?

Art of ‘errorism’

First posted in susanople.com

A world-class performer cannot help but wince when someone sings out of tune. Athletes frown at an extra slice of pizza and a chocolate bar that mere mortals devour unburdened by the thought of calorie count and body fat. Writers have their own pet peeves — the dreaded typo errors, letters missing or added, that lead readers astray and authors embarrassed.

On Facebook, a friend of mine wrote about a man who killed his wife because of a dreaded typo. The man’s neighbor and good friend texted him to say: “I am deeply sorry for using your wife without permission. Mine wasn’t available so I had to use yours, but it was only for a brief moment. It won’t happen again.”

By all accounts, the prospect of ever seeing the crew and passengers alive is getting dimmer and dimmer as rundown analysis of experts worldwide validates a possible hijack that triggered the plane of malaysia airlines to disappear.

The person or persons who pulled off the mind-boggling incident, utilized not only aviation expertise but also spectacular knowledge in communication techniques by switching off the plane’s capability to be detected by radar a few minutes before it went off the monitoring system.

We’ll just hope and pray that its current location can be traced through bits and pieces of information reaching the table of investigators.
