President Noynoy’s moro-moro ensemble is staging one show after the other to whitewash or cover up this regime’s crimes against the people.
A recent example is the trumpeted dismissal of police scalawag Alan LM Purisima. “PURISIMA DISMISSED” looked good at first sight of the newspaper headlines.
“Sir, di ako makapaniwalang hinayaan ni PNoy na sipain ang police dog n’ya sa serbisyo,” my regular barber blurted. But he went on to say, “Pero ibig sabihin ba nu’n makukulong si Purisima gaya nu’ng tatlo sa Crame?”
Noynoy had pulled a fast one when he had Purisima “resign” his post as chief of the Philippine National Police at the height of the national tribulation over the Mamasapano massacre early this year.
But, sensing whitewash/cover-up of the unspeakable tragedy, the people did not easily buy such cheap crap.
“Ano ba, sir, ang katuturan ng pag-resign n’ya noon, e, suspendido naman s’ya sa kasong pangongotong?” a security guard asked. “Ngayon naman dismissed daw. Paano na yung mga kaso niya?”
Needless to say, the police dog and his stupid master both have paramount culpability for the suicide mission “Oplan Exodus” that sacrificed the lives of 44 promising police officers in pursuit of an unworthy terrorist coddled by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
The Special Action Force troops were clearly left unaided during the carnage while Noynoy and his dogs were doing epal.
Ano ngayon itong moro-moro ni Noynoy at Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales?
Badge na si Purisima, at ang dami pang pabaon.
The foregoing reactions from ordinary Filipinos illustrate that they are asking more and more critical questions about government’s “pilantod na daan” and its selective justice.

A couple of days ago, Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya, who signed the controversial maintenance contract, was cleared by the Office of the Ombudsman in connection with the graft case versus former Metro Rail Transit 3 general manager Al Vitangcol 3rd and five accomplices.
The sly Ombudsman Morales noted that Abaya was not officially the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) secretary yet though he signed the multimillion-dollar contract to maintain MRT 3.
It was unclear why former Transportation and now Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas was not charged and indicted when he had jurisdiction over MRT 3, and definitely had a say in the contract negotiation.
Still, it was not clear why Vitangcol’s indictment was for graft instead of plunder, a non-bailable offense recommended for amounts involving P50 million or higher.
Needless to say, these recent graft and corruption cases put up for show by the office of Ombudsman Morales smacked of “sweet deals.”
Those who will face trial before the Sandiganbayan along with Vitangcol are his uncle-in-law Arturo Soriano, currently the provincial accountant of Pangasinan; Wilson de Vera, who ran for mayor under the Liberal Party in Calasiao, also in Pangasinan; Marlo de la Cruz, reportedly a Liberal Party campaign supporter in Manaoag, Pangasinan; Manolo Maralit; and Federico Remo.
The five are incorporators of the Philippine Trans Rail Management and Services Corp. (PH Trams), which bagged the MRT 3 interim maintenance deal worth $1.15 million a month without public bidding on October 20, 2012.
The contract was renewed three times until September 4, 2013.
Ang sarap naman ng buhay ng mga pinagpala nina Noynoy at Mar!
Samantalang nag-pepenitensiya ang publiko sa bulok na serbisyo ng MRT 3, nagpasasa sila nang sobra-sobra!
At sino ba yung mga suwapang na magpamilya na nakarating pa sa Czech Republic para mangotong ng $30 million sa Inekon train company para sa mga train ng MRT 3?
What can you say, Sen. Grace Poe?
