Delusion on ‘reforms’ of Aquino presidency

3

Our present government is like a ship with a Skipper on the bridge looking forward to the vast ocean ahead. Let us first describe the ship which is MV Philippines: I tend to believe it is above 500 GRT because it carries to-date 100 million pax. The ship has enough power and propulsion capability. It has enough fuel, propellant or motive power. It is also equipped ample machinery and equipment with modern instrumentation, electronic navigational aides and charts, etc.

“THE SHIP IS JUST DRIFTING” but because the Skipper on the bridge is just looking on the horizon (tuwid ang tingin, tuwid ang tingin sa dagat, in short TUWID Ang DAAN!) Maybe, the crew on the bridge lacks competency to provide meaningful information to the skipper to adjust its course. I am inclined to believe also that they are not recalibrating their compass to ensure that they are getting the right direction to the true north. For those who understand admiralty, they will immediately get my point. They will immediately ask why do we have a “skipper” and not a “Master” for such a big ship!

In summary, if we have officers and crew who lacks competence, no matter how intelligent they may seem to be, our ship will be in trouble. Same with the present governance. Yes, I believe they have good intentions and their actions are in good faith but the issues at hand are not defined and decided by pure intentions!

Lets us not wait for the ship to just drift and head for grounding, a collision if not allision!

  1. mali ang halimbawa mo – anong tuwid ang tingin? baluktot kamo! kaya nga walang napupuntahan. Medyo palpak ang halimbawa. Pasensya na, obserbasyon lamang.

    • If we are to use the analogy of a ship….

      Then the ship IE the Philippines would be one of huge proportions-

      If the new skipper wants to change course –Then it takes time for this new course to begin to take effect..

      The skipper has given his orders —

      The engine room takes the appropriate action -Now the huge ship has to start to change direction

      We can see the movement begin to take shape–

      But it all takes time

      If we have been sailing in the wrong direction –Then surely it is worth the wait..

      Or do we want to see the ship sink -Or just drift aimlessly -Because all the supplies and fuel –are being siphoned off –To keep a few of the officers in a life style they have become accustomed too ?

  2. Napakaganda ng halimbawang ginamit mo, ang pag timon ng barko na
    pinangalanan mong Pilipinas. Dapat sana ginawa mong mas makatutuhanan
    ang sinaryo ayon sa bansa natin ngayon. Ang barkong Pilipinas ay isang
    napakalaking barko at may skipper eka nga na binigyan
    katungkulan para siyang mamuno at magplano sa pagtahak nito sa
    karagatan. Ang nasabing skipper sa tutoong kalagayan ay may huwad
    na lisensiya na hindi karapatdapat manungkulan bilang skipper o Kapitan o master
    sa dahilang kahit sa maliit na bangka ay wala siyang experiensiya, bagkus
    dahil sa mga di makatutuhanang pahayag nito nuong nag aaply ay
    napaniwala ang nagmamay-ari na malaki ang kaniyang kakayahang
    tumahak sa tuwid na paglalayag. Dahil dito naging pagewang gewang
    ang pag-tahak ng barko at sa lugar na maalon at may masamang panahon
    at laging bahura, kahit patuloy sila nakakatangap ng tamang impormasyon
    sa paglalayag sa tuwid na paglalayag mula sa mga instrumento na hindi
    niya kayang mabasa dahil sa kawalan ng kakayahan. Ang masama
    pa kahit nakikita niya na ang mga tripulante niya ay nagpapa-ihi ng
    bunker at ibinebenta, hindi niya pinapansin sa takot na iwanan siya
    ng mga Kawatang tauhan at mapag isa siyang makulong ng mga
    amo nila at pasahero ng barko. Mula umpisa ng paglalayag sa
    ipinangakong pupuntahan ng barko hindi na naka-alis
    ang barko sa bahura na may uli-uli at malakas na hanggin at nagpatuloy
    lang ito sa pag ikot ng walang direksyon at umabot na sa punto na galit
    na ang mga pasahero bagkus humingi pa ng renewal ng kontrata
    ang sinungaling na skipper dahil kulang pa raw ang panahong ibinigay
    sa kaniya dahil maganda naman daw ang intensyones niya sa pagtimon
    sa barko at pilit na pinapaniwala ang mga pasahero na sinasabihan
    daw siya ng marami sa kanila na manatili pa siya.
