    We asked listeners of Radyo5 and viewers of Aksyon TV on Wednesday morning if they feel or believe that the President’s anti-corruption campaign really works.

    Of the 70 text messages that we received, more than half thinks it’s just a lip service while the rest said to give it a chance.

    On Wednesday night, Pnoy went live on TV lambasting those involved in the pork barrel scam for twisting the issue and accusing his administration of corruption.

    ”Hindi po kami magnanakaw at hindi po kami ang nagnakaw. Kami ang taga-usig,” he said.

    The President surely is talking only about his family of not being a thief and did not mean his entire cabinet.

    Because if he believes that his men are honest too and are not corrupt, Pnoy may be hallucinating.

    Every adult in this country can give at least three names in the Pnoy cabinet who are corrupt.

    Besides, the President’s speech was “an old song with a different tune.” In short, there was nothing new but the same old anti-corruption rhetoric.

    Pnoy failed to answer questions such as where did the Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) come from? How come nobody was informed about its existence or its usage beforehand?

    We want answers Mr. President, not “PAMBOBOLA”!!!

    Number of rugby kids growing
    An 11-year old boy in Manila was shot and killed by a solvent addict with a .38 cal. revolver.

    A teenage girl was sexually attacked by another teenage rugby addict in Caloocan City recently.

    A call center agent was robbed by two young men believed to be under the influence of solvent a few days ago in Mandaluyong City.

    Incidents such as these are becoming a daily occurrence in several areas of Metro Manila.

    These drug addicts seem to be out of their minds when they do the crime since they strike even in broad daylight and in populated areas as well.

    One wonders: whose job is it to arrest these addicts or remove them from the streets?

    Unless authorities will start working, our streets will never be safe again from this new generation of criminals.

    1. The do nothing congressmen should amend the 1930 criminal laws that says minors are not criminally liable. The law should be amended that minors 7 years and up are now criminally liable. A 7 year old nowadays is more intelligent than any matured animal including monkeys. In the digital age every person of any discerning age should be accountable to his/her actions.

    2. Voice from the Wilderness on

      Yes, the general public is slowly realizing that this present inept president is just taking them into a ferris wheel like ride by all these saliva wasting self serving orations on his part.

    3. What anti-corruption campaign are we writing and talking about here? From day one the anti-corruption drive of PNoy were solely for political and personal enemies and those in the opposition. Today, the anti-corruption drive is merely for show or to be frank only good for oppositionists and political enemies. Never improved.

    4. Almost all high government officials, elected or appointed, are liars and thieves. I had heard that more than 3 decades ago. Today, it is even worse. It seems being religious doesn’t help. Only a strong dictator or single party system coupled with complete cultural revolution can help. Our country should learn it from the recent history of China. Our government system should change.

    5. .. You’re right Erwin, hindi magnanakaw si PNoy at ang mga kapatid niya, but, that could not be said on some of his cabinet members… PNoy must reshuffle his cabinet NOW and first to go is the Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa… PNoy could tap Atty. Alex Lopez to replace Ochoa. Atty. Lopez is also PNoy Ateneo classmate and the eldest son of former Manila Mayor Mel Lopez; and Atty. Lopez does not drink and known to be ‘Diretso bituka.’

    6. The President, Mr. Tulfo can look all Filipino citizens in the eyes with a straight face because he was not a crook, and will never be a crook and will leave Malacanang not tainted with any kinds of corruptions. Even a kindergarten will understand where the DAP funding came from. It came from the savings og agencies, it came from unused budget from those agencies. When oppositions said, Govt. is not spending so much for infrastructures, then when DAP was diverted to spend more for building roads, bridges, highways airports etc, you again people are crying fouls. And still you Tulfo is asking where DAP came from.

      Mag Presidente muna kayo at kuhanin ang tiwala ng sambayanang Filipino bago kayo mag alispusta ng kapwa nyo. Why dont you ask yourself instead kung magkano ang mga bayad sa inyo sa inyong biased komentaryo. Shame on you, Tulfo.

      • Manong Noel, pakibasa yong artcle ni Mr. TIGLAO tungkol sa sources ni noynoy ng kanyang PDAP at DAP. MALI KA. SYA ANG TAMA, well-researched ang article ni MR TIGLAO.

      • OBJECTIVELY:

        Bakit may isang audit report na ba tayong alam na nagpapatunay na di magnanakaw si PNOy o yung kanyang ina? WALA. Walang pruweba si PNoy na di nga siya magnanakaw.

        SUBJECTIVELY:

        Kung cateHindi si Pinoy and dapat mag-sabi ng “Hindi Si PNoy magnanakaw”. Ang Taong bayan lang ang makapagsasabi niyan. Problema ni PNOy masyado niyang pinangungunahan ang mga mamamayan.

        OVERALL:

        Mahigit 3 trillion (3,000,000,000,000) na ang nagagastos ng Pangulo at kanyang official family.

        ANO ANG NEW AND SIGNIFICANT INFRA ACCOMPLISHMENT nya? Naubos yata sa LUGAW NG PROGRAMANG MAHIRAP FOREVER IN DINKY SOLIMAN OR PARA SA PANAHONG ITO NA PUNO NG KALAMIDAD SA ILALIM NG BANAL NA PANGULO.

        Haay!

        Kumpara sa ällleged” na nakurap ni Imelda Marcos at GMA op kaya yung alleged weteng ni Erap eh sisiw sila sa administrasyong ito … dapat mag-isip rin ang taong bayan.

        DI LANG KAILANGAN MALINIS NA TAO. KAILAN MAY UTAK AT GALING RIN!
