Game of thrones begins

Fight of the week: Executive vs. Judiciary. Will it be a six-year bout or a three-rounder event? The Legislative expected to referee while watching and listening to the uproars in the gallery. When one of the three gets knocked down, for sure nobody wins.

Armed with 16 million votes, President Digong seems to be bullet-proof, shock-proof and water-proof. He knows it too well and is taking advantage of such teflon-image to unleash his well-stocked armory against his enemies. Even the High Tribunal’s mermaid Sereno is no exception. Expect “high noons” this rainy season. The Good, the Bad and Duterte.

Observe due process? I agree. And some judges agree. They got their dues paid to process drug-related cases. Dues process it is.

Justice is never an assembly line of a manufacturing plant as finding the truth requires meticulous attention to details. Quality, not quantity.

Mabilog, a relative of another “Mabilog?” Heavyweight guessing is tough these days.

I suspect that the number of those who should not be on the list is far less than those who should be on it.

Will the burial heal the wounds, or renew the pain of those nursing them? Will it unite us once and for all or further divide the nation? As they always say, history will be the final judge. But are we not also the judges of history, whether rightfully written or not? I want to rest my case but I will be guilty if I just keep quiet and say “que sera sera.”

Mang Digong is the new storekeeper. He came up with a list of creditors and made it public. The creditors are left with these options: Show up and pay their debts, explain why they should not pay, or not pay and just hide. The last option is dangerous as they may just disappear and not be found at all.

The list is long. Include all the drug networks of peddlers and users and multiply it by families affected, the total is mind-boggling. Houston, we really have a problem.

I’m relieved that in spite of my smorgasbord of maintenance drugs I take daily, happy I’m not on the list.

Dunkin’ Donuts dunkin’ taxes? Tax evasion with consent? Kim not really keen?

Sharing a quote for Age: “It’s paradoxical that the idea of living a long life appeals to everyone, but the idea of getting old doesn’t appeal to anyone.” – Andy Rooney

ISIS recruits are called “radicalized”. drug converts here are called “shabulized”. i hope they will surrender to avoid being “liquidized” or “terminized.”

Sorry to hear that Pacman is fighting again. Mr. Manny, you are not ‘Pambansang Kamao” anymore. You are now “Pambansang Senador.” You were elected to the Senate even if our people are disgusted with your absences in the HOR before. What’s next, Vice President? President? Do you really want to hear the emcee introduce you “In this corner…the President of the Republic of the Philippines?” Sorry Mr. Money Pacquiao..your time is up. PERA biro.

To those in Digong’s list, let us dedicate Paul McCartney’s hit song “Band On The Run.”

There is no truth to the rumor that if FM is buried in Libingan on September 11, there will be a re-run of the 1999 blockbuster movie “The Mummy.”

I suggest that a sign be placed at the entrance of Libingan ng Mga Bayani: “Dead On Arrival.”

Good work. Good deeds. Good faith to all.
