Dilemma of a senator

2

News: Reds declare unilateral ceasefire for resumption of talks. We hope that DU30 will accept the declaration without waiting for the official document.

I have always maintained that a peace negotiation should always start with what the parties can give than what they can get. Goodwill can be achieved by focusing more on commonalities rather than differences.

The country’s largest phone carrier PLDT promised free Wi-Fi in 21 major transportation hubs within 100 days. Nobody can complain except to ask the question, “why only now?”

I prefer monsoon rains to howling typhoons anytime, although monsoon rains create flooded streets and traffic gridlocks, a typhoon destroys lives, homes, properties and crops that create an impact that bears negative long-term effects.

Life cycle – one who is employed yearns for retirement; once retired, one looks for things to do.

Now I know what is the real meaning of “screwdriver.” Ooops, sorry po, tao lang po.

“Abuse and misuse of authority?” it takes one to know one.

When somebody I know says, “May the next administration continue what we have started.”

I beg your pardon, sir? Are you refering to drugs?

Pardon me for this weekend humor, but senator Manny Pacquiao should not have challenged Senator Drilon for a three-round match. Boxing and Sumo wrestling are two different sports.

Sen De Lima is starting the senate investigation into the increase in drug-related killings. I hope this will not include ‘character assasination.’

After reading the headlines for the past few days, I wonder why I got the urge to play Sinatra’s “The Lady is A Tramp” and the Beatles’ “Drive My Car.”

I really wish that after every “announcement” made by PDU30, corresponding legal action would commence immediately to deliver the message that his tales are backed by hard evidence and will not just be part of a “name game.”

The burial issue of FM is still with us. The burial, of course, is not the issue but the location. Google map, GPS or Waze are eagerly waiting for updates.

Everybody is saying that the fight is between DU30 and D5. I disagree. It’s DU30 vs DU30 and De Lima vs De Lima. The fight is among themselves in proving who is right and who is wrong – DU30 to substantiate his accusations, and D5 against herself, with what she did during her incumbency as DOJ secretary.

Alam Mo Ba? News:
The Spoliarium is the most valuable oil-on-canvas painting by Juan Luna, a Filipino educated at the Academia de Dibujo y Pintura (Philippines) and at the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid, Spain. At 4.22 meters x 7.675 meters, it is the largest painting in the Philippines. A historical painting, it was made by Luna in 1884 as an entry to the prestigious Exposicion de Bellas Artes (Madrid Art Exposition, May 1884) and eventually won for him the First Gold Medal.

One thing that I’d like to change is to remove that part of the law that enables losing candidates to go back to their former seats. It feels that the electorate is just being taken for a ride. If the voters have thumbed them down, they seem to have nevertheless won by getting their old seats back.

There are still a number of unresolved extrajudicial killings; there are cases of unvalidated connection to the crime, and there are people killed under doubtful circumstances – these are valid reasons for concerns. Do we expect the families of the victims to come forward and file charges? Will the police guarantee their safety from being harmed by their fellow comrades in question?

Driverless cars are coming in the near future. I prefer a backseat-driverless car as well.

Although the legal and ethical definitions of right are the antithesis of each other, most writers use them as synonyms. They confuse power with goodness, and mistake law for justice.

  1. “One thing that I’d like to change is to remove that part of the law that enables losing candidates to go back to their former seats.” Agree 101%

  2. Good sense of humor, keep it that way it’s a fact conveyed in a happy manner without evading reason at all. More power to you.
