    President “Fist of Fury” Duterte is on the brink of achieving peace with two major rebel groups. Hard on drugs but soft on reconciliation for total peace. Hope this combination works.

    ***

    It’s definite. PRRD’s forthcoming visit to China will not be a “fishing expedition.” I hope China will not encourage their fishermen to “row their boats ashore.” Did I hear “Hallelujah?”

    ***

    I think that President Digong will give two versions of Christmas cards this holiday season – “Peace On Earth” for CCP and Muslim rebels while “Rest in Peace” for drug lords. His supporters may send out the greeting “May the Fist Be with You Always.” To drug lords: “Happy Huli-Days.”

    ***

    On China visit, PRRD will sing “Are you Going to Scarborough Shoal”. Xi Jinping will respond by singing “I’ll Be There”…

    ***

    Samsung discarded the idea of selling its remaining stocks of Galaxy Note 7 through a Fire Sale.

    ***

    DOH confirms 2 “Zika” cases in Metro Manila. Affliction with “Sick-A” virus is spreading fast in the public service sector.

    ***

    Probable scenarios of the future:
    News 1: Putin orders all officials to fly home any relatives living abroad, as tensions mount over the prospect of a global war.

    News 2: Putin and family booked the first available flight out of Russia to North Korea.

    News 3: Kim Jong Un welcomes the first POWs of WW3.

    ***

    Heard from someone:
    “I am against death penalty and I’m ready to kill someone who will oppose my belief.”
    – A deadly pro-life stance.

    ***

    It looks like the forthcoming US election has been narrowed down to these protagonists:
    Trump vs Clinton.
    Trump vs Republicans.
    Trump vs Trump.

    ***

    Wish I could see this at a bank’s ATM machine window someday:
    “At The Moment” (ATM) we are offline or “At The Moment” (ATM) we cannot dispense cash.

    ***

    Heard that Donald T is looking at the blueprint of The White House to check if there are enough locker rooms and dressing rooms just in case he wins. (Old habits never die.)

    ***

    Senator Gordon went to Iloilo to distribute houses built by Philippine Red Cross. This Dick is always “pasok nang pasok” and doesn’t get tired at all. Don’t be ‘hard’ on yourself senator.

    ***

    In preparing the Cha-cha menu: the Barber attempted to cut a veggie…the speaker declared “it’s on the house.”

    ***

    The Belo group declares that it is not involved in any way in the current buy-bust operations. A “skin-tight” statement indeed.

    ***

    In her bill, Senator Leila de Lima is proposing that a megaphone be used by the police to warn crime suspects before they are arrested in operations.

    I also wish that she require suspects to respond using a megaphone saying “OK, you may enter now.”

    ***

    Somebody suggested that the House of Representatives should reintroduce the “ice bucket challenge” to diffuse heated arguments among its members.

    ***

    House members split on Cha-cha. Guys, Cha-cha is footwork, split is Ballet.

    ***

    De Lima admits being morally flawed but denies accepting drug money. I did not know that Basil Valdez’s “Sapagka’t Kami Ay Tao Lamang” is one of her favorites.

    ***

    Now that the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections on October 31, 2016, have been postponed to October 23, 2017, the reason being the incumbents will just win the elections hands down because of drug money, the public seems to disagree. This will also prolong for one year their corruption in other fields like illegal gambling, illegal logging, kotongs on barangay permits and other unlawful “solicitations.” This extended tenure will guarantee consolidating their resources to fund their protéges as their replacements. Same victory, same banana.

    ***

    These are the promises: “to alleviate poverty by creating livelihood opportunities for an inclusive economy, provide relief for rising costs of living, improve the quality of life and inspire hope for the future, enhance public safety and security, resume the Mindanao peace process, begin legislative action on Constitutional change, reforms on taxes, and raise the dignity of the people to a higher position of respect in the community of nations.”

    Even with the initial success of Duterte’s campaign against illegal drugs and other crimes, the nation is still expecting results in these areas. After 100 days, the memory is still fresh.

    ***

    The 24-hour telephone numbers 8888 and 911 gave hope to every citizen that the government is willing to listen. However, it is the result of their action or response that will make the big difference. Or else they will be just numbers.

    ***

    Good work, good deeds and good faith to all.

    1. Ha, ha, ha !!! and more ha, ha, ha !!! HALLELUYAH !!! You surely make your readers smile and laugh. We need that. All of us. Hard working Gordon, the Senator and Red Cross Big Boss. Pretty Belo, prettifying even the prettiest. Splitting Cha-cha guys who may be inspired by Jaybee’s demeanor and speaking mettle. Even the “they’re lies, they’re harassed, they’re tortured” crier de Liela. You’re great, Mr. Reyes! Won’t your lines a book make? It’s your gift to the witless and humorless ones. I can just imagine you and President DU30 having a night out together … punch line here, punch line there. Who’s gonna run out of line? Mag punch na lang, pineapple punch? orange punch? Pero, knowing him, mag-buko juice na lang kayo…..salamat po.
