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.
