Dasal Tayo? (A Reaction to: POLO Officials cleared in Sex For Flight Cases)

The Godmother: DOLE Secretary Baldoz, Protektor ng mga abusadong taga-POLO na nang-aapi ng mga OFW.

Dasal Tayo?  (A Reaction to: POLO Officials cleared in Sex For Flight Cases)

Kung ang kaso ni Assistant Labatt Villafuerte ay inabswelto at ang kaso ni Labatt Musa ay suspenyon ng isang buwan at isang araw; huwag na tayong magtataka pa kung bakit lalong umaabuso ang mga taga-POLO ngayon lalo na yong mga nasa Al khobar, KSA.

Sa kalandian at kawalang-galang sa babae ni Villafuerte ay reprimand lang ang parusa. Sa pagtabon ng krimen at pagkampi ni Musa sa rapist ay 1 month and 1 day suspension lamang. Samantalang, napakalinaw naman sa Senate hearing kung anong mga klaseng tao sila. Sila ay mga masasamang tao na hindi karapatdapat maglingkod sa aming mga OFW.

Kaya pala lalong umaabuso itong sina Alex Padaen at Samuel Madrid ng POLO Al Khobar

PATNUBAY EMPOWERMENT: How to check the first entry (working) visa of KSA-bound OFW

It aims to educate our government entities like POLO, POEA, OWWA, etc., on how to protect the rights of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

Noong 2012, gumawa ang Patnubay ng video para turuan ang ating gobyerno tungkol sa kanilang pagkukulang at kamalian na naging isa sa pinakamalaking sanhi ng mga problema ng mga OFW pagdating dito sa Saudi Arabia. Una, ang pagkakaiba ng pangalan ng employer sa tunay na sponsor, at ikalawa, ang pagkakaiba ng eksakto (o actual) na trabaho kumpara sa propesyon na nakalagay sa iqama.

Featured Balak: PANAPI UG KAHAKOG

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.

LAHI ANG PAGPASAKA UG ASUNTO, LAHI USAB ANG PAGPAMATAOD SA KAMATUORANG NAG-ASO ASO!

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.

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.

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

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’

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.”

“HONOR CODE” ONLY A MYTH???

True and honest observance of the much-vaunted “Honor Code” will absolve the military institution from any and all allegations of corruption and shenaniganism.

The sad thing is that, charges against recalcitrant military officers and men have remained rampant in our country. We have noted henchmen in the ranks of the military causing the disappearance of media practitioners and read in the papers highly publicized investigation covering the overpriced purchase of military hardware and equipment, not to mention the conviction of a general in the Sandiganbayan.

There can be more plausible reasons than plainly alleging the unavailability of Atty. Levito Baligod as cause for his unceremonious departure from the raging issues that delve into the truth of what the Filipino people have known to be PDAF, the mother of all scams.

HAGIT: Buwis Mo, Ninakaw Na Nila

Sa Saudi Arabia, walang tax na binabayaran ang mga companies, ang mga consumers, ang mga workers both saudis and expats, lahat ay walang tax.. Pero abunda tayo sa malinis na tubig kahit disyerto, mura na kuryente, mura ang gasolina at iba pa, libre na medical insurance at social insurance para sa lahat ng workers. Walang buwis na sinisingil ang kanilang gobyerno, pero hindi naman lumulubog ang kanilang ekonomiya.

Sa Pilipinas lahat na lamang ay may tax, may vat at e-vat pa. Pero bakit palubog nang palubog ang ekonomiya kahit anong singil ng BIR?

Ang Parusa sa Kasakiman

Ang inggit at pag-aagawan sa mga makamundong bagay ang dahilan kung bakit lumilihis ang sangkatauhan sa tuwid na daan.

Katulad nitong mga kawatan na nagpapayaman mula sa kaban ng bayan at itong mga naniniwala na sila ay mananatiling makapangyarihan magpakailanman.

Hindi naiintindihan nitong mga gahaman na ang kanilang kasakiman at buhay pang-kamundohan ay panandalian lamang.

Magpatong-patong man ang kanilang mga kayamanan hindi nila ito madadala sa kanilang libingan at lalo na sa buhay na walang hanggan.

Sa buhay na walang hanggan, ang parusa sa kanilang kasakiman ay kanilang pagtitiisan ng walang katapusan.

Ginoo, mitoo kami nga sa Kanimo lamang kami modangup, sa Kanimo lamang kami mosalig.
