Some say being vengeful is a sign of immaturity since one can’t simply forgive and forget what others have done.
Worse, some of these unforgiving individuals, though not directly at the receiving end of such transgressions, never cease in persecuting those individuals or groups at fault.
PNoy, is a prime example of that unforgiving human being, who does not know when to stop, even though the offending party is already languishing in jail or in the process of paying for his or her sins, like former President Arroyo.
I am not a friend of Mrs. Arroyo, and I believe she deserves to be punished for her indiscretions while chief executive of the land.
However, I totally disagree with PNoy on his continued attacks on his predecessor, particularly in front of foreign leaders.
Blaming Arroyo and the former officials of the past administration seems to be a common ingredient in almost all of President Aqiuno’s speeches here and abroad.
But hitting the former administration repeatedly will never bring back the loss precious time and billions of pesos that were stolen or squandered.
One wonders if Aquino gets any personal sense of fulfillment from endlessly lambasting the former President who is currently under hospital arrest?
Our 50 something year old President… has yet to grow up.

No emergency powers for PNoy
Finally, both houses of Congress have agreed on something so quickly…no emergency powers for PNoy, not just yet.
The Department of Energy (DOE) failed to convince the House of Representatives that Pres. Aquino needs such an authority to address the impending power crisis.
Even some of his allies in Congress believe he may abuse this power to solve the energy problem but at a very costly price.
Both the Senate majority and the opposition block in Congress have earlier expressed unwillingness to grant Aquino emergency power.
They fear that Pres. Aquino might do a Pres. Ramos, purchasing expensive power barges to temporarily solve the rotating brownouts then at the huge expense of the peoples money. The barges were of no use.
Aquino and his sidekick at DOE should just drop the idea of having emergency powers
It was abused before, and it might be abused again. This administration has a record of abusing what it has in its hands, like the Disbursement Acceleration Program(DAP).
Tsk, tsk, tsk…
