HAGIT OPINION: PORK BARREL

PORK BARREL
By Atty James Lobedica

Certainly everything is not in our wildest dreams. Neither can we see it in our imagination but things are turning out quite far from the expectation of all taxpayers and unfolding in such unprecedented events under the present dispensation of P-NOY. We cannot remain passive and continue to be submissive to the brewing discussion condemning the abusive utilization of the pork barrel.

On sex for flight and the pork scam – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

The whole nation is wondering. Which of these two shenanigans is more reprehensible, the supposedly worsening sexual assaults against our female OFWs?Or the alleged ten billion plunder of congressional pork barrel. The answer would, of course, depend on our values as a people. Is money more important than the honor and dignity of our women?

Why was there no bishop or religious leader expressing anger against sexual predators masquerading as diplomats? Whatever it is, we strongly believe that both are grave assaults against our sense of rectitude and justice. But I hate the sexual predators more.

Cebuano Short Story: SI INDAY SELOSA

SI INDAY SELOSA

Ang selos magdala ug pangigi, pagduda ug walay hunong nga pangunot sa agtang ug pangyamiid sa binuhat nga giputos ug selos. Iyang dughan walay hunong sa pagkulba, magbutokbutok ug iyang kabalisa manggimok. Ang selos mahimong sinugdanan sa kapungot, bagutbot ug mga kamot nga mangumot, imong buhok mahurot ug kalarot, imong nawong mug-ot, imong mata magpitok-pitok.

The story of a philosopher in tatters named Diogenes bearing a lighted lamp in broad daylight in search of an honest man is part of Greek mythology. On the other hand, in his fourth State of the Nation Address on July 22 during the joint session of the 16th Congress at the House of Representatives in suburban Quezon City, Philippine President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III was obviously also looking for honest men in public office.

Balak Back2Back: Duko vs Hangad

DUKO
ni Atty James Lobedica

buhat nga pagpaubos,
pagdawat nga walay kuskos balungos

walay pupangutana
hilomong tubag sa pangutana

kini mopamatuod

HAGIT: Abysmal greed and dishonesty of some Philippine solons

Even to a country long numbed by the excesses of a pompous bunch of mostly dullards who pass themselves off as ‘honorable’ legislators, the most recent revelations on how some of them surreptitiously skinned the motherland to the tune of P10 billion takes the cake.

Featured 2 Balak: DALIKYAT and NAGKALAIN-LAIN ANG KANDIIS

DALIKYAT

Pulong pasabot ug paghapit,
Pagsuta kon wala ba mabitbit
Basi’g sa laing kamot, mapunit….

Ang pagdalikyat, kinawatkawat
Linaktan mag-apas, makapugwat
Imong gininhawa daw maahat….

May modalikyat ug timo,
May modalikyat ug himo,
Ang pagdalikyat dili ikasugo….

Sa pagdalikyat, ikaw maniguro
Magdalidali aron lagi makasiguro
Tilaw, simhot, kaon, kilaw, singo….

Who hasn’t heard of the Titanic? The largest ship afloat at the time, RMS Titanic was a British ocean liner considered to be the epitome in comfort and luxury. And safety — but not where it counts most. She had watertight compartments and remotely activated watertight doors but there were only enough lifeboats for barely half of the 3,327 passengers and crew.
