Stop blaming my father for nation’s woes–Senator Marcos

A+

People should stop blaming Ferdinand Marcos for the country’s woes, the late dictator’s son said on Friday as he criticized subsequent leaders for doing little to improve the lives of Filipinos.

Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., a senator with presidential aspirations, let rip on his Facebook page as President Benigno Aquino III prepared to lead a rally on Saturday to mark a bloodless “people power” uprising that toppled Marcos Sr. in 1986.

“China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia can all point to the progress they have made these last 26 years but unfortunately, for the majority of our people, nothing much has changed today,” Marcos said.

“Blaming past administrations will not bring food to the plates of the hungry. Excuses cannot substitute for performance and results.”

Marcos acknowledged he was unable to pass impartial judgment on the uprising that ended his father’s 20-year rule and forced his family into US exile, but said his political foes also promoted only their version of history.

“Most of what we hear now from all sides are still within the ambit of propaganda. But I certainly am concerned with the state of our country today,” he said.

Aquino’s mother, Corazon Aquino, famously led the “people power” uprising after reluctantly taking the prodemocracy leadership baton from her husband when he was murdered at Manila’s airport in 1984.

She served as president for six years, between 1986 and 1992, and earned a reputation as a leader with strong personal integrity.

Benigno Aquino scored a landslide victory in the 2010 presidential elections when he capitalized on the immense public support for his late mother, and vowed to continue her agenda of fighting corruption.

The incumbent blames a culture of corruption in past administrations for widespread poverty in the Philippines.

But while President Aquino enjoys widespread support because of his parents, so too does Marcos.

He easily won a Senate seat in the 2010 elections and has said publicly he may seek to emulate his father and lead the Philippines.

His sister, Imee, was also elected governor of Ilocos Norte, the family’s political stronghold, while their famous mother, Imelda, won a seat in the lower house of parliament at the age of 80.

    the culture generated by 21 years of marcos dictatorial rule and mockery of our democracy are still being felt until now and the appearance of his descendants in the person of bongbong marcos and imeldas shoes are a reminder we have a long way to go to relieve us of the nightmare. his father’s legacy cannot be ignored and the many young innocent people who paid for their lives for protecting our democracy cannot be forgotten. the residual effect of the unfinished business of the EDSA narrative is still unfolding before our eyes when the enemies of decency and culture of entitlement are still in power. The Filipino people will learn soon and will wake up to change the narrative themselves and not be guided by false prophets and leaders whose only interest is to preserve their status and privilege.

    • lakayamaya

      Mali po ang 21 years kasi po as recall 1972-1986 lang po naging dictador si Mr. Marcos. Let history be a judge on marcos legacy or let Senator Enrile and Former President Ramos explain to the people their participation before they vanish from the face of this earth and to clear once and for all who the real Ferdinand Marcos was.

      • tadasolo

        Tama ka but he became president in 1965

      • lakayamaya

        To refresh your memory, Marcos defeated Macapagal overwhelming in 1965 and got reelected in 1969. It is only when Marcos declared martial law in 1972 that he became a dictator. Sana maliwanag na po!

        Lakayama, refresh your history, Marcos didn’t defeat Macapagal overwhelmingly. In fact there was a slight differece in numbers and if you read “Dead Aim” by Conrad de Quiros, which was well-researched and well-written, Macapagal’s operatives gave their President the option to make dagdag-bawas but the older Macapagal “of the old school” was decent enough not to cheat, unlike his daughter-president. How we wish Macapagal cheated at the time so Marcos never had a chance in the presidency. By 1969, Ninoy was already a rising political figure and so was Pepe Diokno, both of whom Marcos feared to be his biggest opponents because they are both intellectual and presidentiable like him. And at the start of Marcos’s administration, he was already pocketing money from the national treasury, a habit that started even when he was a Congressman. Kindly Google the Stonehill black book. Ayan sana maliwanagan ka, bobo.

        This is already history judging the original corruptor. enrile and ramos, like you, i, and others, are only individuals, with each his own facet of the saga. However, collectively, the people judged the andy&meldy kleptocratic dictatorship. And, they knew their place in history when they fled to hawaii.

        bongget just aches to re-write history. or, his story, in preparation for his presidential aspirations. he stays unrepentant and derisive of all Filipinos. he believes he, and his ilk, are entitled.

    Yes, of course, Bongbong has every right to think his
    father was a hero, not a tyrant who caused so much ruin
    to Pinas.

    And he’s even a senator now. Filipinos have very short
    memory. They are so forgiving they elect a tyrant’s son
    to a high elective post.

    And the mother who’s losing her marbles even claims she
    should be given the post of “Mother of the Barangays”.

    She’s the Mother of this country’s sad and tragic 20-year
    dictatorship, that’s what she is unalterably.

    Bongbong, your father taught us how to steal and get away with it.  He was the first one to corrupt the Filipino value system.  His legacy is more than the Philippine wealth he took away that you and your family are enjoying right now.  His legacy is a destruction of Philippine moral values.

    Bombong has no right to open his mouth to criticize the nation leadership for failing to improve much to the lives of Filipino.

    What he should do is to return about 200 billion pesos of ill-gotten wealth which his father has accumulated through his greed and corruption and inhumanity rule, to the Filipino people.

    This shall prove his sincerity in his love to his country.

    Si Ferdinand Marcos ang dahilan kung bakit naging ganito ang Pinas. Sinimulan nya ang nakakahawang corruption. Bakit di nya matanggap ang ginawa ng tatay nya. 20 years ang tatay nya as pwesto, bakit ibe-blame nya ang mga sumunod na presidente sa mga katiwaliang ginawa ng tatay nya. Ano ba ang sinasabi mo ngayon. Bibe-blame mo rin ang naging presidente pagkatapos nyong simutin ang kayamanan ng Pinas. Aminin mo muna ang kasalanan nyo bago mo maredeem ang pangalan nyo. Maraming naitulong ang iyong ama at marami rin syang nilapastangan.

    Tigilan na natin ang pagsumbat sa mga Marcoses. 26 years na ang nakaraan  naghirap na sila  sa nagawa ng kanilang ama ano pa ang gusto nyong gawin sa kanila? Samantalang si cory ay wlang nagawa ng maging presidente, at ngayon ang anak naman na gustong maging diktador ang sumisira sa bansa. Kokonti na lang ang sumusoporta sa kanya dahil nakita ng mga tao ang tunay niyang kulay. Ngayon humihingi siya ng tulong sa people power na hindi na sumusoporta sa kanya. Magkakaroon ng people power hindi upang suportahin siya kungdi upang patalsikin siya.

    Before Marcos the country was the second riches nation in Asia, People from China, Korea , Vietnam used to come to the Philippines and settled here.At that time there were no OFW. but during Marcos Regime the labor dept was seeking off shore employments for Filipino labors.
    Some of them as far as Saipan a counrty few filipinos knows, The dollar exchange was 1$ to 4 Pesos. During his term the Dollar exchange went to 18 pesos to a dollar, and the price of 1 bottle of coke is 10 cents.that went to 1 peso and 50 cents.The foreign deposit secrecy law went to effect with PD 1045 and PD 1044. Binondo cartel was created. Investment in the country has dissapeared, Ford and GM has dissapeared in the market and was replaced with Toyota, Mitsubishi. Was the country better before Marcos? Would like to have another Marcos running the country. Dollar salting started during their time.

    The worst legacy that Marcos left the Filipino people was the alteration of their moral values. The rape and pillaging of the nation was nowhere near the “Patron System”  and the “Palusot System” popularized by Marcos.  The proof are the politicians nowadays.

      He showed us how bad we can be as a nation.  He showed us our capability to steal, to corrupt, and to bribe and how to get away with it.

      What Marcos did to corrupt our valuing system was more than the material wealth he stole from the Filipinos.

    Now how exactly can you act like a drama king and even use the poor as your propaganda material as if you and your family did not play a major part on why people have no food on their table?

    Look if you people are really sincere and concerned about the poor people you would have returned the billions upon billions of looted peoples money as soon as you people took flight with your tails behind your legs. But of course just like any greedy plunderers, you have no concept of what is right and wrong and yet has the gall to use the poor people as your prop.

    The junior Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos is now a Senator, flirting with brazen ambition, salivating for the 2016 Presidency. With alacrity he proclaimed, “If there was no EDSA1, if my father was allowed to pursue his plans, I believe that we would be like Singapore now”.

    Let Lee Kuan Yew’s statements about Marcos from his autobiography “From Third World to First” disabuse Bongbong’s delusions.

    “ It was not until January 1974 that I visited President Marcos in Manila… Marcos received me in great style… I was put up at the guest wing of Malacañang Palace in lavishly furnished rooms, valuable objects of art bought in Europe strewn all over. Our hosts were gracious, extravagant in hospitality, flamboyant.In Bali in 1976, at the first ASEAN summit held after the fall of Saigon, I found Marcos keen to push for greater economic cooperation in ASEAN. To set the pace, Marcos and I agreed to implement a *****eral Philippines-Singapore… to promote intra-ASEAN trade…I was to discover that for him, the communiqué was the accomplishment itself; its implementation was secondary, an extra to be discussed at another conference.He once took me on a tour of his library at Malacañang, its shelves filled with bound volumes of newspapers reporting his activities over the years since he first stood for elections. There were encyclopedia-size volumes on the history and culture of the Philippines with his name as the author. His campaign medals as an anti-Japanese guerrilla leader were displayed in glass cupboards. He was the undisputed boss of all Filipinos. Imelda had a penchant for luxury and opulence. When they visited Singapore…they came in style in two DC8’s, his and hers.Marcos, ruling under martial law, had detained opposition leader Benigno (Ninoy) Aquino, reputed to be as charismatic and powerful a campaigner as he was. He freed Aquino and allowed him to go to the USA. As the economic situation in the Philippines deteriorated, Aquino announced his decision to return. Mrs. Marcos issued several veiled warnings. When the plane arrived at Manila Airport from Taipei in August 1983, he was shot as he descended from the aircraft…International outrage over the killing resulted in foreign banks stopping all loans to the Philippines, which owed over US$25 billion and could not pay the interest due. This brought Marcos to the crunch. He sent his minister for trade and industry, Bobby Ongpin, to ask me for a loan of US$300-500 million to meet the interest payments. I looked him straight in the eye and said, “We will never see that money back.” Moreover, I added, everyone knew that Marcos was seriously ill and under constant medication for a wasting disease. What was needed was a strong, healthy leader, not more loans.… In February 1984, Marcos met me in Brunei at the sultanate’s independence celebrations. He had undergone a dramatic physical change. Although less puffy than he had appeared on television, his complexion was dark as if he had been out in the sun. He was breathing hard as he spoke, his voice was soft, eyes bleary, and hair thinning… An ambulance with all the necessary equipment and a team of Filipino doctors were on standby outside his guest bungalow. Marcos spent much of the time giving me a most improbable story of how Aquino had been shot.With medical care, Marcos dragged on. Cesar Virata met me in Singapore in January the following year… He said that Mrs. Imelda Marcos was likely to be nominated as the presidential candidate. I asked how that could be when there were other weighty candidates. Virata replied it had to do with “flow of money; she would have more money than other candidates to pay for the votes needed for nomination by the party and to win the election. He added that if she were the candidate, the opposition would put up Mrs. Cory Aquino…The denouement came when Marcos held presidential elections which he claimed he won. Cory Aquino disputed this and launched a civil disobedience campaign…A massive show of “people power” led to a spectacular overthrow of a dictatorship. The final indignity was on 25 February 1986, when Marcos and his wife fled in USAF helicopters from Malacañang Palace and were flown to Hawaii.…There was no reason why the Philippines should not have been one of the more successful of the ASEAN countries. In the 1950s and 1960s, it was the most developed, because America had been generous in rehabilitating the country after the war. Something was missing, a gel to hold society together. The people at the top, the elite mestizos, had the same detached attitude to the native peasants as the mestizos in their haciendas in Latin America had toward their peons. They were two different societies: Those at the top lived a life of extreme luxury and comfort while the peasants scraped a living, and in the Philippines it was a hard living… They had many children because the church discouraged birth control. The result was increasing poverty.Something had gone seriously wrong. Millions of Filipino men and women had to leave their country for jobs abroad beneath their level of education. Filipino professionals… are as good as our own. Indeed, their architects, artists, and musicians are more artistic and creative than ours… The difference lies in the culture of the Filipino people. It is a soft, forgiving culture. Only in the Philippines could a leader like Ferdinand Marcos, who pillaged his country for over 20 years, still be considered for a national burial. Insignificant amounts of the loot have been recovered, yet his wife and children were allowed to return and engage in politics.”The difference between Strongman Lee Kuan Yew and Dictator Ferdinand Marcos is as obvious as where Singapore and Philippines stand today. But it is a mistake to blame broken promises on the leader alone, for the followers are equally culpable. Apathy that allows abuse and corruption to go on is tantamount to abetting the crime. One good man installed into power cannot save a dysfunctional country.

    In assessing Marcos, we must also broaden our historical perspective to the global forces in those days that impacted us.  The oil shocks of the 70s devastated the world economy that lasted until early 80s.  Cheap money from oil shiekdoms were in abundance that made it irresistibly easy to borrow only to suffer high interest rates and inflation later on.  Our government heavily relied on import substitution policy from an earlier period in turn neglected our export and the competitiveness of domestic industries.  The liberalization of the US sugar trade devastated Negros and other sugar producing provinces by allowing latin american countries to outcompete us.  Ultimately, it was the economy that brought the Marcoses down.  That the Marcoses never apologized to the country remains an injury to all.  For the Marcoses to be back in power as if nothing happened adds insult to injury. 

    Equally important today is our government’s readiness to face the challenges of the global economic turmoil.  The crisis of 2008 has not been fundamentally addressed and allowed to linger on.  When the full brunt of this round of crisis reaches home, PNoy and his economic team will bear much of the blame.  I hope this administration learns well from history.

      What brought the marcoses down was a quarrel among thieves. With andy, the dictator, withering away. enrile, and his ramboys, decided it was their time for a power-grab. They were caught, with their pants down.
      They went for a last stand in camp aguinaldo. At the same time, they announced that they were one with the people in denouncing the fraud of marcos’ being declared the winner of the snap elections. They also sought the help of the people, against the massing marcos forces.

      The rest is history.

    If there is somebody to be blamed of the hardship of filipinos,  I can only blame the government after Marcos.  The government after Marcos was a dismal failure.  Its first achievement was to mothball the Bataan nuclear power plant.  The result was constant and long blackout which destroyed the economy of the country.  She filled her cabinet with leftist people who knew nothing about modern economics.  The notorious sparrow squad was unleashed which killed policemen almost daily. While other asean countries advanced,  Philippines was thrown into kankungan because of misplaced economic policies.

    Bongbong Marcos is not doing  himself a favor by revisiting  his father’s past. The 20-year dictatorship of  Marcos planted the seed of graft and corruption that cost the Philippine government some $10 billion and  saw the  civil liberties of thousands of Filipinos used and abused by the late dictator  and his henchmen. It would appear that  Bongbong Marcos reaped the benefits of his father’s loot with impunity. Bongbong should feel fortunate and grateful that Cory and PNoy Aquino did not give his family a dose of  the extra-judicial medicine that the Marcoses were known for prescribing for their  enemies.

    There is no denying that the former Marcos administration had its faults.  Marcos enriched himself while in power, declared martial law to extend his rule, and silenced a lot of his political opponents.  However, his administration also accomplished a lot of things, e.g. The medical centers like the Lung Center of the Philippines, Philippine Heart center, NKI, & PCMC.  It was also during his time that the CCP & other complexes, LRT, highways, etc. were built.  Corruption during his time was limited to those near or around him while corruption now is at all levels of government, down to a Porsche-driving customs clerk.  If you put all those things into consideration, Marcos has accomplished more than all the other presidents after him combined did.  Comparatively, he was the better president.

      Marcos made corruption an every day aspect of the lives of Filipinos.  He instilled fear on us to tolerate abuses of power by authorities.

      During his time, we lost our ability to stand up for our rights.  We were sunod-sunuran lang. 

      Marcos personified a Filipino’s capability to steal, to corrupt, to lie and to hide his loot.  He shaped a Filipino’s bad characters.

       ..and how many years did he have to BE the better president? Any buffoon should be able to produce results in that time. He had to produce results. Realistically, I would say he did want to show a good Philippines to the world, that he was the ruler/statesman of a growing nation, but he also made sure that he, and more importantly Imelda, made sure that they were adequately compensated. Ok, a little more than adequately… criminally.

  • Hey_Dudes

    During your father’s regime there were only about 26 million Filipinos more of less.  Except for the interval between the Dodge City guns ablazing on the streets and temporary discipline the martial law instilled among the citizenry, what progress did Marcos really do in advancing the country’s industrial progress during his tumultuous regime?  Today, nearing the 99 million population mark and growing each day, with no significant products exports to the world except manpower, with internal strife ripping the country apart fueled by non-stop politicking that has not erased graft and corruption, what do the Marcoses really have to proud about?

      in marcos regime: the exchange rate was 1$= 1 peso, filipinos enjoyed travel opportuinities and not treated like cr@# at foreign embassies, there were a lot of road and infrastructure projects completed and not just renamed, the philippine governement enjoyed good foreign relations, the educational standard was high with high success rates, the youth were more respectful and behaved . . . just to name a few of many positives

    I said it once, I will say it again. The problem with the majority of Filipinos is that while we elected a President who is well meaning, and who is personally clean of corruption, who wants to get rid of corruption, we also EQUALLY elected the very enemies (who are known to be corrrupt and who are known to be plunderers) who will destroy the well meaning intentions of Pnoy. Dont get me wrong, I am not fond of Pnoy– (playing PSP while a policy speech is being delivered by a cabinet member is unbecoming of a president), I do admire his mother though. But Pnoy will not succeed until and unless majority of Filipinos stop voting for the likes of Bongbong Marcos who is currently basking on the money his family stole from the Filipino people.  Pnoy will not succeed until Filipinos learn to vote for clean and honest congressmen, governors, mayors etc. It takes a WHOLE citizenry to save a country, not one man or woman alone.

  • QQU

    “Aquino’s mother, Corazon Aquino, famously led the “people power” uprising after reluctantly taking the prodemocracy leadership baton from her husband when he was murdered at Manila’s airport in 1984.” (Agence France-Presse, 2/25/12)

    As I remember it, Corazon Aquino did not LEAD the “people power uprising.” The people
    MADE her a “leader” (she did not make herself the leader). she was  thrust into the
    power whirl of events by the people, who earlier lost a real leader, Ninoy. 

    She did not exactly know what to do next.Even as President, she was one step behind. Governing was alien to her. The Bureaucracy went on the way it was with Marcos—corrupt, service gridlocked, no vision, internally disorganized and always complicated.

    She perceived herself more as a privileged monarch. She was very proud to have achieved the distinction of speaking before the joint US Congress. (As a Filipino, I was proud to listen to her, too.) And it seems that was the height of her achievement, which was mostly personal. From that mark, I saw nothing but the fast downslide for the Philippines..

    Maybe the son this time wants to redeem the failings and the flaws of the mother as a “leader.”

    We, Filipinos, do not seem to have much right now in terms of well-meaning visionary leaders.
    The only one we have is a President who believes in the fight against corruption…which,
    as he says, makes worse our poverty problem.
    We could support his stance on this, and make headway. Because cynicism (we are a very cynical people, aren’t we?) will not get us anything.

    This is certainly much better than recycling sleaze in the judiciary.

    for what’s it worth, yes, much of the blame does fall on marcos for starting it all, that’s a fact he cannot escape from. as you all know, the country was second only to japan in terms of prosperity, wealth and economic progress-we were the envy of asia. of course, all of it disappeared when he came to power and became a dictator for the next 21 years.

    but it’s been 26 years already and i agree it’s time to move forward. stop blaming past administrations and time to think for the future. the country made little progress actually since then.

    contrast to our neigboring countries like it took japan only 10 years, korea, a couple of decades and same like thailand, malaysia who are now very progressive and and can be considered tiger economies. while the philippines remains as the sick man of asia.

    everybody else has overtaken us, including vietnam. who has just came from a 3 decade war. with the way we are going now, i wouldn’t be surprised if cambodia who has also just came from various wars, will overtake us within the next few years.

    with a population among the highest in the world, poverty level is also among the highest in the world, the infrastructure among the least developed and the peace and order situation(crime, terrorism, kidnapping) , corruption and bribery is pervasive and at all-time high, political instability and infighting. now if you’re a foreign investor would you want to invest in a country like that?

    now the administration has a chance to prove itself but it’s been 2 years and all we’re hearing is this blaming game. actually gdp have been shrinking the past 2 years, export earnings shrinking and we are importing more and causing deficits, and investments well, the country only got 2% investments out of 100% invested in southesat asia. 

    is there an economic plan at all?

  • Joey Rey Lopez

    Sometimes it is the weakest voice which makes the full sense. Frankly I am tired of seeing the country plunge to the depth of corruption while all of us just watch how elected leaders do this for us. Marcos Jr. may have a solid point of comparison- China, Malaysia, and other neighboring countries indeed made solid growth in respect to improving their people’s lives. However this is not a guarantee that had his father led the Philippines further we had become what Singapore is now. I know many people will say or if not publicly admit that life was far better the in the olden days. I do believe it was because of the following factors. 1. Low population, there is food enough for everybody, even in excess to export. 2. People actually have discipline and moral integrity, where back in the old days we do not tolerate people who rob the country. (Kaya nga natin napalitan si Macoy eh! Because we accused him of being corrupt).  Now if you can go back in time will you still choose that the EDSA revolt had happened? For me Yes, even though I have always viewed it as Pandora’s Box coz we as a nation on that day proved that we are evolving and is making our way to a democratic path. Ang kaya lamang dito ay masayadong maaga, we should have educated first the people gaya nalang ng population control and proper use of vote. Pwede naman tayo di bumoto kung walang pamimiliian sa mga kandidato. Last two points if Jr here will go for presidency I will support him, not because of his father but from the experience he hopefully had absorbed from the strongman. For those of you, who don’t believe or doubt Noy’s ability, please be mindful that at the moment we are so lucky that he has not been influenced by the dark side yet. And he is only human he can only do so many things in his presidency, The ideal scenario is for the Philippines to have at least 3 more faithful leaders after him and we will see the damages that Macapagal-Arroyo, Estrada, Ramos, had done reversed, Sana nga si Miriam nalang kayasa kay Estrada eh,

      is over-population really the cause of poverty? or is it poverty that caused more population. and government policies caused poverty?

      • http://www.facebook.com/clay.fimmel Clay Fimmel

         Of course if you have over population, there are fewer resources to go around, there will be much greater stress on housing, infrastructure, education etc. It is also a well known fact that in the other way, the more poverty there is, that the more children they tend to produce. A higher income people generally have fewer children and are able to provide better opportunities for them. I do not for a moment suggest that poorer people do not WISH to, its only that they do not have the resources to provide them with good opportunities, so the viscous circle continues.

        Government policies also have a very large part to play in entrenching poverty when they do not deal adequately with quality education for all at affordable rates for ALL, adequate health care for all, and job creating ventures such as infrastructure building and maintenance.

        As we all know, a great deal of government financial resource has been wasted and continues to be wasted on corruption, ineffective and inefficient methods through all levels of governement. Too many levels slowing things down, too many hands out, too much paperwork to do simple tasks etc.

    there is a lot frustration in the unfinished legacy of EDSA and most of us are left to wonder whether it was hijacked by somebody else or it is our own failure to continue its legacy. I for one believe we are weighted by our culture of indifference and lack of motivation and to carry our desire to change and its uncertainty and instead consume by our instinctive tribal affiliation and association. our way of life and education is bringing a class of people not steep in citizenship beyond our comfort zone. we like to talk about order but failed to practice it. we consistently belittle other people for failing to see what we see but have nothing to provide a solution. we are good at using our emotions better than our mind to see things. we are satisfied with our mediocrity and do not pursue excellence, we talk the talk but failed to walk the walk, we are content on being followers instead of leaders, our leaders are failing us not because of their lack of skills and decency but because we let them abuse their power and instead continue to vote for their failings. In all we have a long way to go to provide a decent society for our kids and protect our legacy as parents and make the Philippines a better place than our parents. let us not be cowered by political slogans by politicians to conveniently hide their weakness but instead focus on placing people who will strengthened our institutions and protect our democratic and liberal legacy. no government now or in the future cannot displace the motivations and work of a responsible citizenry and focus on teaching our kids in the pursuit of excellence and respect for others and providing for the comfort of our unfortunate brethren who struggle on a daily basis to live as decent human beings. This is our purpose and our birthright

It is a bitter truth that your father really brings the Philippines on its knee economically and the people suffered tremendous hardships and human rights violations. As his son and a promising politician, it is now your duty to reverse all the bad things your father did for the more than twenty years of his administration. There are also positive things your father did. All you have to do is continue them plus your own ideas that will bring the Philippines alive economically. You have all the opportunities, now that you are a Senator.

    Subsequent leaders cannot easily overturned the damaged done by Ferdinand Marcos on our country. No other countries suffered as much as we suffered from Marcos regime. War and revolution in Mindanao which killed thousands, lost billions of pesos, making muslims mindanao under-developed started from Mr. Marcos manuevering to keep him in power. Much more human casualties in other parts of the Philip…pines as a result of Martail Law. On the economic issue, subsequent leaders struggle to pay amortization and interest on loans borrowed by Marcos. Anyone can simply judge the value of our currency compared to others currencies from the time Marcos assumed the presidency to the time he was ousted. My fellow countrymen, please do not be deceived by the statement of the younger Marcos and his supporter.

    But then on the day he was thrown kicking out of office, the Philippines was the basket case of Asia — second only to Bangla Desh in the category of poorest nation in Asia! 

    On the other hand, your monster parents amassed up to $20 billion dollars during their despicable rule!  So now can you blame all of us to place the FAT FINGER of blame on your long-dead-but-couldn’t-be-buried Dictator Father?

    Before Marcos, there was very little problem in Muslim rebellion. Jolo, Sulu at that time was very peaceful. There was no MNLF and other forms of pressure groups in Mindanao. When Marcos ruled the country, everything changed to worst. He did make Muslims and Christians hate each other to divide and rule the country through chaos. 

    There were hundreds of thousand killed under the banner of Marcos’ “bagong diwa,”  many Muslims and Christians in Mindanao lost their thousands of love ones from the ILAGA  vs  Moro  fights.

    To sum it all, no amount of effort by the Marcos family can heal the deep-seated anguish felt by the aggrieved families wrought about by the Marcos dictatorship.

    Senator Bong Bong Marcos, don’t be too cocky. Your family hasn’t paid yet the blood you owed from the innocent people of this country.

    If Bongbong has any aspiration for the presidency, he can just keep it as it is… an aspiration. It doEsnt mean that because he won as senator, the senate is already his meal ticket to the presidency. He should be humble and accept the fact that people WILL NEVER give him that privilege and he can BLAME Ferdie and Imeldefic for that. Bongbong should realize that his family name is worse than the ampatuans…

    He should understand that he won his senate seat because people felt it was time for the country to reconcile and move on BUT also TO NEVER forget the past. His father will never be forgiven and until etched in the history books will remain as the biggest thief the country has known.

    Individually, i dont even think he got the intellectual brillance of his father… Just watch the impeachment trial and you’ll know.

    Does your region have any sign of progress? if no, you really need to vote for new names and stop idolizing officials. Look at their record and if the region was improving on their watch.

    Marcos presidential decree 1829 (obstruction of justice) has good intentions but combined with martial law, It becomes the devil and can just search anyone anytime. Government officials especially one connected with military and police have the power to do anything with impunity.  PD 1829 is commendable as long as the 3 branches of government is functioning and human rights is observed (no martial law). Amend bank secrecy law especially section 8 ra 6246 to allow authorities to see if government employed person is funneling project money to their individual dollar account. Revise or amend Section 8 ra 6246, it promotes obstruction of justice and criminal enterprise.

    After Edsa a revolutionary form of government should have been established, at the time the support of the people and the world was so high, that Filipinos were respected throughout the world.
    It would have been easy to  start the reform in the government, the damage of the conjugal dictatorship and crony capitalism would have been corrected. National discipline could have been instituted. But what happened is that the politicians who were wearing the red and blue shirts changes its color to yellow and the same corrupt officials were back in the government. The Ill gotten wealth could have been recovered easily and used for industrializations of the country. The same bad habits were allowed to destroy the country. Those succeedings leaders were elected without a vision for the betterment of the country. The expanding population together with the worlwide downturn in thw world economy plus the reinstatement of corrupt officials made it worse for the coountry and its people. The only saviour, that prevents the total collapse of the Philippine economy were the OFW, whose remittances amounts to Billions of Dollars..

    Your parents were responsible for all the sufferings then, and now. It started from them.
    It was during the Marcos era that forced the Filipinos to leave the country  to work in the Middle East and beyond, mostly as domestic servants away from their loved ones. The diaspora was caused by extreme poverty and no job prospects in the Philippines.

Sa panahon natin ngayon, napakagulo ng ating bansa, ang pangulo ng bansa mismo ang walang respeto sa rule of law, sa kanya mismo nanggagaling ang pagkakahati ng sambayanang pilipino. Sa lahat ng mga naging presidente kakaiba po kayo ginoong Pangulo, siguro po sa ikakaunlad ng atin bayan ay dapat mag resign na kayo at ipaubaya na kaya bise-presidente Binay ang pagkapangulo.Salamat po.

    Cory,s administrations were hampered by the series of 7 coup d etat that took place during her term, It prevented the economic growth of the country, the governement was operating from scratch, as the wealth of the country was stashed away to the foreiign land.Medicare fee for doctors and hospital were being paid with expiring checques.

    Bong-Bong is right.  It’s time to move on.  We can’t keep blaming Cory for all her shortcomings either.  After all, she prayed hard during her time, had good intentions for the country and left pretty much everything up to heaven.  Nor can we keep blaming Ninoy for turning our senate into a joke in the late 60s by indulging and feasting on Dovie Beams and other irrelevant exposes.  Those who were old enough to remember Ninoy in those days can safely say he personified the quintessential TRAPO until he was put under the crucible during the Martial Law years.  When he finally wanted to do good, he no longer had the chance to do so.  He wasted the most productive years of his life on himself, his ambition and his selfishness.  As for Noynoy, we can only blame those who voted the first mongoloid president to power. 

    • edm365f31

      You are as st#pid as they can get, if not for the sacrifices of those people you mentioned we will still be under Martial Law … people like you are the reason why we still have the ghost of the past because you never learn.  I bet you voted for those Marcos lepers..and you are from Ilocos st#pid A$$!!

      • EdgarEdgar

        wrong.  even as the rolex 12 were planning the martial law, they knew it had to end in less than 10 years.  logistically, it was impossible to stretch and strain the military and the economy for so long.  the martial law was intended for shock and awe, but it ended up with unspeakable excesses, too.  if only you get your history straight, you would not have missed one of leading causes of martial law — political turmoil.  in the run-up to the martial law, ninoy led all kinds of trouble-making that plunged the country into chaos.  you may not like this, but google dovie beams.  if you were around in those days, you wouldn’t be speaking so highly of ninoy and cory.  ninoy and cory were symbols, yes.  ninoy and cory did much to end martial law, no.

    and the partner loses control  Imelda was frivolous, rather reckless in spending money that is
    ill-gotten from various sources, mainly US economic aid packages which was, for the most part,
    unaccounted for.

    EDSA was there when Cory Aquino was cheated in the Presidential Elections–that is one of the
    most glaring issues. He tried everything to perpetuate himself in power, thus the martial law.

    Gloria M.Arroyo tried to do the same, that is, declare martial law, but the US didn’t approve!
    So she had to resort to Electoral Sabotage and for which she is now charged.

    Absolute power corrupts, and power corrupts absolutely………..

  • Beguine

    If you watch and listen to what Bongbong says or has to say,
    he doesn’t say anything intelligent or perceptive. He’s only of
    average, maybe below average intelligence. And when he talks
    about his father, he’s a total idiot.  

    He rose to where he is now, a senator, of course due to the
    stolen Marcos billions (in US$), the Ilocanos, a prolific race, and the still
    living rich and super rich Marcos fanatics whose families benefited from the evil
    regime.  

    There are now moves to confiscate the Marcos billions $$$$ nest egg,
    earlier estimated during the Marcos regime by Time Magazine
    at around Billion 5 US$, so you can imagine since that time
    how it has ballooned from then until now into one of the largest
    fortunes anywhere.

    The Philippines continues to be dirt poor, while the Marcos stolen
    billions keep escalating. If they are finally returned to the nation’s
    coffers, the country will be astoundingly wealthy like the oil-rich
    sheikdoms overnight.

    We blame Marcos because during his time he institutionalized electoral fraud, graft and corruption, and extra-judicial killings. It has been very difficult to undo vote buying during elections because Marcos made this a habit to most Filipinos. With vote buying, those who captured power recovered their expenses through graft and corruption. Those who would expose the anomalies would be summarily executed. They did it with impunity.

      Marcos Sr.   Buti nga ngayon at least naipakulong na muna si Gloria. Pero ligtas na anman siya kapag hindi na convict si Corona.

    Somehow, I kind a agree with Marcos Jr. statement and and it`s also giving me a chill to my bone, for their family`s significant influence on others which was the causes of this societal stagnation directly and indirectly, not to mention their thrashing of the 1935 great constitution, the lost revenues of the government as well as it`s lost place in this part of the world from number 2 economy next to Japan and with a powerful military provided by the US, the thousands of unexplained killings or missing people,  then the costant coup attempts that made Cory`s effort useless and made the AFP politcally charged, this also made the succeeding revolutionary government to change the Marcos constitution instead of restoring the 1935 constitution and just amend only the offending articles, because of this the succeeding governments were prone to EDSA revolution 2 to 4, one EDSA and only EDSA 1 is admirable, but too many calls for it and done….there is something wrong with the foundation of our thinking and policies that has to be evaluated and be changed….including the revolutionary 1986 constitution, it has not been amended since its conception and flaws on it will continue to be taken advantage of by the succeeding presidents after PNoy, for all we know, this is already being taken advantage of by PNoy in his battle with the SC, a dangerous path since in the future a president with Marcos like attitude can exploit that avenue that the this constitutional loopholes provides…unless we amend them one by one…..

    I blame it on the stupid filipino pride!
     
    After the first people power, there was a talk in the Us congress to create a Martial Plan for the Philippines.  The idea is for the US to finance a massive reconstruction.  But then the idea fizzled down as the Aquino administration (perhaps influenced by nationalist and anti americans factions in the Aquino administration) seemed not interested.  The idea was conceived by the late Steven Solarz ( D-NY) and other US legislators sympathethic to the Philippines. The same legislators were also considering  a bill to allow the Philippines to default on US and IMF loans that were secured during the marcos regime.  The Aquino administration instead opted to renogiate the terms of the loans.  The money that would have been a big help to the poor went instead to service the various marcos loans!   Until now lubog pa rin tayo sa utang dahil taas ng pride at sa kayabangan ng ating mga “nationalist kuno” ng mga leaders!

      Source: Wikipedia

      The Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program, ERP)
      was the large-scale American program to aid Europe where the United
      States gave monetary support to help rebuild European economies after the
      end of World
      War II in order to combat the spread of Soviet communism.The
      plan was in operation for four years beginning in April 1948. The goals of the
      United States were to rebuild a war-devastated region, remove trade
      barriers, modernize industry, and make Europe prosperous again. The
      initiative was named after Secretary of State George
      Marshall. The plan had bipartisan support in Washington, where the Republicans
      controlled Congress and the Democrats
      controlled the White House. The Plan was largely the creation of State Department officials,
      especially William L. Clayton and George
      F. Kennan. Marshall spoke of urgent need to help the European recovery in
      his address at Harvard University in June 1947.

      The reconstruction plan, developed at a meeting of the participating European
      states, was established on June 5, 1947. It offered the same aid to the Soviet
      Union and its allies, but they did not accept it.[3][4] During
      the four years that the plan was operational, US $13 billion in economic and
      technical assistance was given to help the recovery of the European countries
      that had joined in the Organization for
      European Economic Co-operation. This $13 billion was in the context of a
      U.S. GDP of $258 billion in 1948, and was on top of $12 billion in American aid
      to Europe between the end of the war and the start of the Plan that is counted
      separately from the Marshall Plan.The Marshall Plan was replaced by the Mutual Security Plan at the end of 1951.

      The ERP addressed each of the obstacles to postwar recovery. The plan looked
      to the future, and did not focus on the destruction caused by the war. Much
      more important were efforts to modernize European industrial and business
      practices using high-efficiency American models, reduce artificial trade
      barriers, and instill a sense of hope and self-reliance.

    Crony corruption, Commie fear Mongering, and Creating a Nation of Brothels was the legacy of Ferdinand Marcos. If the Marcos’s want to redeem themselves, then support the People’s efforts to rid Corona and the system that was placed by Arroyo to keep that evil legacy of the Marcos in tact. Otherwise this blame game is another revelation of the ineptitude which this clan is world famous for.

Don’t ever utter those words because your parents were the root cause why our country is suffering. It was your father’s ambition to remain in power that cause the death of hundreds of young people.  Your father created a scenario of unrest to justify the declartion of martial law.  He employed the best agitators  like Baltazar Pinguel who is now in the United States and Nilo Tayag  who later on became your sister Imee’s treasurer of the Kabataang Barangay. You maybe right the succeeding presidents after your father did not do enough to uplift the welfare of the Filipino people but your father has to be blamed.

    WHAT HE HAD DONE TO CORRUPT THE NATION IS DIFFICULT TO UNDO.

     Bongbong must not feel cocky and gutsy because of the nation’s condition brought about by people who have abused and raped the nation. The most serious damage created by martial law is the erosion and disintegration of moral values among the leaders who opted to live by the selfish personal gains, connections (sipsip), insensitivity (pakapalan ng muka) and loss of delicadeza, pride and crab mentality.Marcos regime created these monsters among our leaders. And when we have some dignified and determined people trying hard to eradicate people that have adopted these monster attitude and character, they pictured them as abnormal and psychopaths. Those who have benefited in the Marcos regime continues to rape the nation because of their surplus wealth preventing this change for the good because of selfish interest. Our poor people, ignorant and uneducated are left to their mercy. Those of us who are literate enough to stand against this forces of evil must resists this fallacy. Already the SC has granted some of the wealth back to the Marcoses. We do not know if how much influence the CJ has in this decision. One thing is sure, Bongbong is for exoneration of the CJ regardless of evidence.   

  • Hey_Dudes

    Instead of continuing to saddle the people and country of the martial law years, the young Marcos who is a spitting image of his father Apu Ferdinand MaCoy Edralin Maharlika Marcos, this young man could have demonstrated quality in statesmanship by having shunned politics altogether and give his father what he richly deserved which is –  getting him out of that refrigerated crypt  and interred into a family mausoleum in his hometown Batac.  Instead, we continue to see this family pontificating and engaging on issues that provokes the collective minds of the citizens of the country.

The stigma might be there, but we do not have any other reason anymore to slack and lag behind. Indonesia can blame Suharto, but now they are moving ahead and went economically surpassed us already. Vietnam can blame its war, but instead they used it to instill nationalism and push their country forward. If we just keep on blaming Marcos for everything, nothing will happen to us, we’ll be stuck in this mess forever. We should stop whining and blaming, nakakahiya even mga foreigners they are quite surprised that Filipinos still blame Marcos. Si Noynoy nga, na namatay ang tatay for freedom eh naka move-on na. Ano pa reason ng iba? Even if the Marcoses paid the price, then what? Uunlad na ang Pinoy?

    its not about blaming marcos it is what he left behind; a culture of impunity. if bong wants to set an example give back the obvious ill gotten wealth and initiate a poor peoples bank for productive systems both agriculture and consumer products. all else is hot wind and i condemn the economic leaders in this country. the disrespect for the farmer and the OFW is a clear indication that there is no will to get the country stable and moving. they like their foreign investments and the easy money to be made from paper transference. what a sham and disgrace. they are not captain’s of industry. they are a joke BUT they wheel the political power as if they are important to the system. also question Enrile’s fast decision about the PAL scam and corona’s decision which got him a  free card to travel. it is obvious bribery and enrile has been part of it. he and the others are not gentlemen. Corona makes them look bad. he must go. believe it and know it.

    Well Bongbong, if weren’t for your father we wouldn’t have had such an incompetent and stupid president like Cory aquino.

    She was so stupid she did not fully dismantle the populist policies of your father that still allow politicians to buy votes and extort from businessmen. She even expanded them because she didn’t know better (e.g. overly precriptive Agrarian Reform, Ople’s labor code, all sorts of regulations that aren’t even followed and only exist to allow bureaucrats to extort from businessmen).

    It’s natural for a son to defend the honor of his father. Sadly, Ferdinand Marcos has no honor. He was one of the most evil dictators in this century. Filipinos suffered the same fate as North Korea, Burma, Cuba, Haiti, and Swaziland – all under the yoke of dictators like Marcos. This man’s Monkees made fathers, brothers, uncles, and sons disappeared in the most “mysterious” ways. Marcos and his goons, and yes his family, laid waste to the islands ruling it by decree, hammering with iron fist, confiscating private and company fortunes. And yet today, his legacies are rearing their ugly heads to return to power and return like the biblical locusts.

    even the entire wealth (stolen) and the life of the entire Marcos clan is not enough to pay for what the late dictator had done to the Philippines.  He stripped the Philippines to its barest minimum (wealth, dignity, morality, etc).  It’s just so sad that some of the Filipino people do not see the truth!  Any Marcos clan is a pestering disease/cancer in Philippine society!

    Marcos is the second most corrupt leader in history, after Suharto. According to a report by Transparency Intenational released several years ago, Marcos plundered the country of some Ten Billion US dollars (That’s why the Marcos family live in style). Suharto plundered Indonesia with some 30 Billion US Dollars. Of the top ten list, two are Filipinos (Marcos at 2nd and Joseph Estrada at 10th place, with hundreds of millions of dollars in loot despite a short stay as president (He threatened to sue T.I., but never made good on his threats). The survey was done when GMA’s presidency was still in its infancy. If it were done today, the top ten list will have 3 Filipino corrupt presidents (Marcos, GMA and Estrada).

    The Marcoses should stop re-writing history. Their patriarch and the thick-faced Imelda are known thieves, and they have to live with it. It’s true anyway. Imelda used to treat the PAL as her own, when shopping abroad, she uses one plane all to herself and her cronies. She should stop singing, we are very tired of her. Only her cronies who earn their living singing her praises say otherwise.

    I clearly remembered a front page Panorama Magazine picture when Bongbong Marcos graduated from a military survival training course sometime in the mid 70’s. His fatigue uniform was covered in dirt and he stood at rapt attention while his father pinned him military ribbons. Behind him waiting for his turn on the president was Jackie Enrile. Bongbong and Jackie were commissioned 1st lieutenants that day and the crony newspaper Bulletin today’s Panorama magazine featured the two friends on their inclusion to the military.

    While all the other trainees sported extremely short army cut style hair, Bongbong’s wore his over the ear, obviously not army regulations haircut.

    This may sound trivial and Bongbong has since grown to become governor, congressman and senator. But some people just cannot forget of the past and sufferings they have to endure during the martial law years. Me and my family almost lost our lives in October 1972 and we have to abandon everything that we own and escaped with our lives from a violent muslim uprising in the south.

    We later learned that it was elaborate scheme to foment violence and disorder to help justify the declaration of martial law. The student rallies and throwing of pill boxes in the streets of Manila were not enough reason for the previous month’s martial law declaration. Marcos needed a moslem rebellion in the south to further justify military rule, hence the staged managed Marawi uprising of 1972. So we had grenades exploding in front of our house, sporadic gunfire and cannon fire reverberated while being aimed nowhere. Unmanned Constabulary camps were overran, the military chapel, army barracks were torched, and a few PC personnel, among them Private Remoto, a friends, were killed while manning the Pantar bridge connecting, Lanao del Norte and Lanao Del Sur.  So well was the the staging of the event that we applauded the arrival of the M16 toting Marines. A lot of people were fooled.

    Almost 100% of the christian population in Marawi City evacuated to Iligan City and nearby coastal municipalities for safety. Of the thousands who left, only a handful returned. Marawi City has been declared an Islamic City since then.

         Sorry, Ai, you’re wrong. The Islamic religion was first introduced in Mindanao around the 16th century by Shariff Kabungsuan, a full 106 years before the arrival of Magellan. As the name suggests, Bung Suan, though from Johore, Malaysia, is chinese.

        My family lived in Marawi since 1926 and many members of the family were born there, where we buried our dead and intermarried with the locals. Though christians by religion, we practiced maranao culture and fluently speaks the dialect.

        Incidentally, we are of chinese descent.

    Marcos had $25B loan from IMF and if we would like to see where the money was spent, maybe we can liberally assume about P5B in infrastructure. Where are the major portion of the loan? In the Swiss banks and lately Imelda was showing off some masters to a foreign reporter.

    Let us reclaim back the stolen ill-gotten wealth. Imee, Bongbong and Irene should voluntarily return the money and properties. No amount of lies can justify anything that Marcos did. Bongbong should shut up, he is only in the Senate because of Gloria’s hocus-pocus in the elections.

    It would be a big help to the Filipino people if billions of pesos stolen during Marcos regime be returned to the Filipino people.  Progress will then be attained. Unless the loot during those years be returned, the Filipino people will continue to suffer and blame the Marcos’ 20 years regime.

    The problem is, the remaining Marcoses still insist that they have done nothing wrong and would not repent.  Return to the Filipinos their money so that their lives will improve.

    The trouble with us Filipinos is that we have a notoriously short memory. Add to this our lack of appreciation of history and the propensity and predilection to forgive and forget, and you have a neurotic nation that is still grappling with the relevance of EDSA I and a people still ever-so-fragmented. Twenty six years after the dictatorship was toppled and the Marcoses fled the country in shame, Imelda is now congresswoman, Imee a governor, and Bongbong a senator of the republic who, incidentally, is not coy about his plans to run for the office of the president maybe as early as 2016. Not bad for a petrified and cowering family that had their collective tails tucked between their legs when they hastily boarded the 2 C-141 Starlifter cargo planes of the United States Air Force. Today, the Marcoses are back with a vengeance, even as Bongbong defiantly proclaims to all and sundry: “don’t blame my father for our nation’s woes.” Truly, what a difference 26 years make. No thanks to the legendary short memory, lack of appreciation of history, and penchant to easily forgive and forget, the Marcoses are back in the reins of power once again. And as an added bonus, we have a brazen Sen. Marcos lecturing us all not to cast blame on his late father. Such gall and temerity.

    Corruptions is the root cause of the miseries of the Filipino people. It deprive most Filipinos the opportunity for progress, for education, for good nutrition. It affect the most poor of the people that comprises majority of the population. Poor families never had a change to get out of poverty because of malnutrition, causing poor brains, low morale, and parents unable to let their children finish school. The root has greater culpability and that is Ferdinand Marcos. He wasted so much time enriching himself leaving the Pilipino to stagnate while other neighboring countries are catching up fast. Comes obviously after is Estrada and GMA. But Marcos has a greater share. Hopefully Aquino, protecting the names of his family, will stood up among the rest. Marcos children, as does Aquino, will simply follow the instinct of protecting their parents name. Dumb Filipinos because of malnutrition, lack of education – little knowledge, easy to forget, will have little progress. They vote politicians based on who is popular on tv screen and of  whom they benefited from even if in the past the same people give them or their ancestors poisons. This is the chain effect of corruption.

    No one is blameless, including Cory, Ramos, Erap, Gloria, and now Noynoy. But the Marcoses should admit what they did to the country. 

    Thanks to Marcos, a huge chunk of our national budget has been going to debt payments. Communist and Islamic insurgencies have been preventing growth in the countryside. Our military is so politicized that we depend on greedy and immoral politicians like the Ampatuans to defend our sovereignty. Corruption and cronyism is so prevalent in all areas of the bureaucracy. We should move on, but we need to learn from the past and should never be blind from the lessons we could learn from it.

    I believed Phiippines still within the timeline adjustments.

    26 years is not enough to the damaged done by Marcos Sr. Probably
    , it will took  50 years, another 24
    years, depending on the peoples support, and ofcourse the succeeding leaders we
    choose for our country. Obviously, JPE ( the architect of Martial Law), FVR,
    Honasan, Lacson, Bong2, Imelda and Aimie Marcoses are still  around, on the part of the victims Joker, Guingona,
    Saguisag and even Salonga are still alive. We all know that the current leaders
    are siblings /relatives of the victim of Martial Law. They were all positively
    and negatively involve during Marcos Sr. year dictatorship regime.

    We need at least to wait another generation cycle of human
    life until the remnants of the dictator and his victims ( Dictator &
    victims 1st degree relatives) vanished in thin air. Similarly, the
    rage of World War II was forgotten (or at least tamed ) when the people involve
    and  their relatives perished.

    After 26 years, the fact is, were still solving the internal
    problems of GRAFT & CORRUPTIONS, in the military (pabaon system), in the
    Judiciaries rampant briberies, in GOCC with overwhelming bonuses, in various government
    agencies, particularly Bureau of Custom, BIR, DPWH, DENR,DOTC, DILG, DOE, all
    GOCC and GFI’s to name a few. Just recently, a Bureau of Custom CLERK drove a 5
    million Pesos Porsche and fired a shot to a student. Undeniably, Corruption is
    endemic in this country.

    Political dynasties throughout the country still existing.  

    My concern though, is we inherited this from Marcos Sr., for
    more than 20 years in power, HE SHOULD DONE IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. Lee Kuan
    Yew of Singapore and Dr. Mahathir of Malaysia are his co-temporaries who also
    served more than 20 years in power, yet, look at Singapore and Malaysia now
    compare to our country. On the other side, Muammar Kadhafy is also Marcos contemporary
    (and Imelda’s Friend ), look what happened to Libya last year. The legacy of
    these leaders are imminent.

    We expected hope to solve or do something regarding the
    corruption problems during GMA term, but t’was really a very frustrating 9
    years for the Pilipinos. From bad to worst !

    We need the roots to be extracted, and plant a new grass. I
    doubt, we will no longer fully benefit on this endeavor, not in our current
    generations….. but at least we have to do it, in this current administration
    we have the chance, we should advocate to our current government fight against graft
    & corruption…..for our siblings future.

    God Bless the Philippines.

    I SIMPLY WISH…. na mabasa ni Bongbong itong mga reactions tungkol sa kanyang mga public statements.  Sana mabasa niya at map-agnilayan…. these reactions are strongly worded, … on the other hand, yeah…. may conscience pa kaya… if they have stolen billions of pesos of people’s money, if they can continue to lie, if they have killed many people, if they have trampled on people’s universal basic human rights, if they have stripped us of our dignity, ….. at walang pagsisisi…??????? We can always stand up… hope again… begin again…renewed… but for the Marcoses like Bongbong, like her mother…they stand up again, they are back into politics again…..to tell the whole world  “YOU SEE WE HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING WRONG OR EVIL,… WE WON!!!!”. I [pity them], they have to spend the whole of their lives proving that they have not done anything wrong or evil…. when the whole  world believes, knows and  is convinced even [in the world  of book records]……

    According to Forbes magazine, Imelda Marcos became one of the top 10 richest women in the world. I think she was one notch below Queen Elizabeth ll who was number 1. This was the time when Marcos made Central Bank his own personal bank and one of Marcos cronies, Dewey Dee almost caused the collapse of the banking system in Philippines.

  • themayflower

    how in the world Bongbong Marcos, for the life of me, could stomach to say what he just stated “Dont blame his father for the country’s woe”. Wake up Bongbong, your family not only stole a significant portion of the country’s wealth, the Philippines during his father’s time as president also took a huge leap backward as result by simply failing to develop the country’s infastractures.

      Bongbong have some points. Stop the blame because 25 years after his father’s regime the country has not progressed unlike their neighbors specially Vietnam who have been into civil war for several years and even economically sanctioned by U.S.  Corruption is very much alive in the Phil. And that is the very reason why growth is stagnant if not very slow or negative. Pnoy knew the cause and want to get rid of corruption. A very good cause. The problem is, he prioritized filing cases for former government officials who has no more clout on government funds but is blind on the corrupt officials on his government.  In addition he is more focused on the impeachment case than the serious economic problem of the country

    Aquino’s mother, Corazon Aquino, famously led the “people power” uprising after reluctantly taking the prodemocracy leadership baton from her husband when he was murdered at Manila’s airport in 1984. Totally wrong. She was hiding in a convent during the height of the Peoples Power. It was Cardinal Jaime Sin who led the people power when he called to support Enrile and Ramos.

    The culture of corruption was patronized and nourished by your parents. That is a real bitter pill to swallow. Martial law was the darkest years of Philippine history because the oppressors are not foreigners like the second world war but the military and police which are supposed to protect the people. People just disappear like bubbles and nobody hears anything about them anymore. Marcos’ military became a monster during this period. I know, I was unjustly harassed by one of your father’s metrocom puppies.

    Bongbong…you are a senator and your sister, a governor, mostly because of the ill-gotten wealth from your father’s administration. You and your family, especially your mother, are all living comfortably because of all those money your father stole from the country. That’s a fact and everybody knows it. So just shut up..

      Irene,

      I look at it this way if I may… there is this thing called “name recognition” and that phrase needs no elaboration; another factor I think is that of “territorial” – meaning Ilocos is perceived to be their own backyard… the money or wealth would be the topping…the side dish would be the loyalty of the all the Ilocanos to the Marcoses… so what would you expect when you combine all these factors…. these factors also worked for Ninoy’s successful election… the Cojuancos, Aquinos of Tarlac and nearby provinces…  they’re no different by all means

Debt payments eats chunk of our budget which should much better served in social services and investments.

    True that subsequent governments had their fair share of debt, but those are as a result of an already failed financial structure inherited from your father. Speaking other south east asian nation, they progressed because they do not have that external debt burden to begin with. We failed of the external debt responsibility. Should your father chose not borrow too much (and plundered in the process) we might in the different universe now.

    I was still a very young kid during the start of Martial Law living a peaceful,normal and happy existence with my three brothers and parents who are both public school teachers. Both my parents got married quite late for their time so from the saving and gifts they received they were able to buy a property and later start building a home. Later my father would let us know how difficult it is for them to get money to finish our house umuutang pa sila sa mga kaibigan nila hanggang makakuha ng housing loan ang father ko sa GSIS.  

    My grandparents on my father’s side are basically farmer’s even though they own the land they are tilling they are not the one enjoying the fruit of their labor sa simpleng kadahilanang naisangla nila ito sa ibang tao. Pag naka sangla ang isang lupa noon ang kita ng lupa ay napapapunta sa kung kanino naka sangla ito. My father see no future in this kind of system persevere to pay all the loans and manage the land ( a few hectares) around 5 hectares including those own by the brother of my lolo who happened to be childless. My father rented the land from them and he planted them with sugarcane. My father get to rent more small land to plant sugarcane may I say this was not a common practice during that time when most sugarcane plantation was manage and controlled by very wealth family. My father persevered even though he is always last in the priority in the milling company to get our sugarcane to be milled.

    What I just want to say is Martial law period was not all bad things my father had only a dream lived it we did not get to be so rich but just hard working people given the opportunity and given the chance to do something good about it not only for our family but to others. 

    That is my recollection of that time.

    • white scorpion

      my recollectiois that, marcos sees all the country needs to move forward and attain as a progressive country. the problem is that he suffers from illness and did not have enough time to push for the implementation of his vision. i have heard some good lawyer; radio commentator (now) who was against marcos during those times, now acknowledging there was something good in marcos era. the famous slogan ni marcos is “sa ikalulunlad ng bayan, disiplina ang kailangan”, which is very true (for me). our country is going haywire simple because our leaders and people (sinasama ko na sarili ko) lacks disipline. many of our politicians are protector of various vices. umpisahan na sa land grabbing, carnapping, drugs, gambling atbp. our political leader do not exert enough effort to create a suitable business climate for their constituent to live even above poverty man lang, for the reasons sila lang nakakaalam. like magindanao, mansion ang bahay ng political leaders. barong barong naman ang constituent. it is easy to determine whether the local unit has a good leader, simply by comparing the house of their leader to the constituent.

He was able to draft an agreement with Japan for the reparation which Japan paid for the damage done to people and our country during the japanese occupation (World War II).There were many infrastrucures built such as gov’t hospitals where Filipinos  are given free medical care and do remember we did not have  to pay tuition fee and books and were also given free dental care in schools.Philippine 2 pesos  equivalent to 1 dollar and I was then in US working as a nurse.Rice was in abundance and were able to live comfortably as our financial resources (my father was a farmer) magsasaka but we were happy. But there was fear of the NPA insurgency all over the Philippines and the young  Fiipino student were being recruited to fight against the gov’t. UP students joined demonstration not knowing who are behind the movement,but it was the CPPA Jose Maria Sison.also called organization of NPA.. if it had not for the strong leadership of Marcos communist China had taken  over the Philippines easily.

        Why? Because they the NPA wanted to kill Marcos politically, including Ninoy who was there at the rally because they were afraid he might become the next president. The NPA did it to kill 2 with one bullet. Marcos politically, Ninoy physically.

        And I believe they suceeded in August 21,1983. Ninoy died physically and Marcos died politically after 3 years.

    Senator Bongbong—there is no doubt that your father was a VERY BRILLIANT President but when it was his time to leave the office, the taste of power was what he didnt want to let go.  When de declared the Marcos-style martial law, that was when the evil side of him took over.  Ever since, only people close to your family benefitted from his position.  Masuerte lang kayo ang mga pinoy are ever forgiving that in spite of what he has done to the country, you are back in the country and even in politics!!!  Malakas lang kayo sa Ilocos Region but my respect for the brilliance that runs in your family is on the negative scale.  Wala kang binatbat sa galing ng tatay mo–ganoon na rin ang iyong Ate Imee.

    The
    Phil. was 2nd to Japan in 1972 just after the declaration of Martial
    Law. Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia were far behind the
    Phil.. In 1986 when Pres. Marcos was booted out the country we were left behind
    by other ASEAN countries. Look at the Bataan Power Plant and the billions of
    dollar in debt which until now the Filipinos are paying.  That’s the legacy the Marcoses left the
    Filipino people. I hope others will learn about this. Google this facts….

    The senator has not mentioned the name of his father in his message. Grabe talaga tong inquirer na ‘to.  It’s a call for a non-blaming game and put economic development in the agenda of penoy’s administration.  If you’re a shortsighted moron you will put it in a context of divisiveness. Like what this dyaryo is doing… Penoy should have been feeding, clothing and sheltering the poor and providing jobs for the unemployed two years ago…. that is his mandate.  It’s been two years… NONE ACCOMPLISHED.

  • mikerocky

    A lot of people were tortured and killed during the reign of your father, courtesy of his martial law henchmen. This has already been proven as a fact otherwise the American Court would not have granted remuneration to the victims of Martial Law. Be thankful that all you get for these are only criticisms. However, do not be complacent as well, for blood begets blood even from the Genesis of time.

    BLAME THIS TO FERDINAND MARCOS:

    MANILA, Philippines – Some 9.7 million Filipinos lost their jobs in the last three months, the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed.The SWS poll, conducted from Dec. 3 to 7, showed that the country’s unemployment rate grew from 20.2 percent to 24 percent, representing an estimated 9.7 million Filipinos.The SWS used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults and had sampling error margins of plus or minus three percentage points for national and plus or minus six points for area percentages.Out of the 24 percent unemployed, 10 percent were retrenched, nine percent resigned and five percent were first-time jobseekers, SWS said.The majority, or seven percent of those retrenched, did not have their contracts renewed, two percent were employees of companies that closed shop and the remaining one percent were terminated.The findings of the SWS December 2011 poll were published in the newspaper BusinessWorld yesterday.SWS said unemployment was slightly higher among women and the younger members of the labor force.Unemployment dropped to 15.2 percent from 17 percent among men while it rose to 35.6 percent from 25.6 percent among women. Unemployment also rose to 49.1 percent from 46.3 percent among those between 18 to 24 years old.It was basically unchanged at 29.9 percent from 29.7 percent among those aged 25-34.There was likewise an increase in unemployment to 18.7 percent from 13.7 percent for those between 35 to 44 years old, and to 17.3 percent from 13.8 percent for those aged 44 and above.The results of the SWS poll differed from that of the National Statistics Office (NSO) which reported a 6.4 percent unemployment rate in October last year.The unemployment rate in the latest government survey is equivalent to an estimated 2.644 million Filipinos. It was down from 7.1 percent in 2010.The NSO said unemployment dropped below 20 percent in three out of 26 surveys from May 2005 to December 2011. The figure hit a record high 34.2 percent in February 2009.

      The late President Ferdinand Marcos has long been gone but the past administrations keep blaming him for the woes. Mali naman yata yun. They had their opportunity to alleviate the lives of the Filipinos but they did nothing. Cory Aquino, because of her popularity was so afraid to initiate changes that would have uplifted the economy. Ayaw ni Cory na masira ang kanyang popularity kaya she let her Inner Circle do the job for her. Ano ang nangyari? The economy stood stiil. Walang pagbababgo. Fidel Ramos did little too. Mas maraming nawalan ng trabaho nang maupo si FVR dahil maraming banks ang nagsara dahil sa merger which he initiated. Si FVR ang naging salesman na Presidente. Ibinenta ang mga military bases in the guise na ang pagbebentahan ay mapupunta sa military modernization. Nasaan ang pera? Ano ang status ng ating AFP ngayon? Nakakaawa pa din. Walang bagong military warfare na maipagmalaki. Lahat bigay ng ibang bansa. Sina FVR at ang kanyang alipores ang nakinabang sa pinagbentahan ng military bases. Dumating si ERAP, okay na sana kaya lang trinabaho siya ng mga elista ang ng Catholic Church para mapatalsik. Naupo si GMA, hayun, na legalize ang pagnanakaw lalo na sa military at pulis para lang wag siyang i-coup de’etat. Sinuhulan din ang ilang Pari at ilang ministro ng iba’t-ibang religious sect wag lang siya upakan. Natapos ang term ni GMA na nakakulong ngayon at umeksena si PNOY. Wala din. Imbes na atupagin ang kabuhayan ng tao, kay Corona, Grace Lee at paglalaro ng PSP umiikot ang kanyang buhay. Tapos ang lahat ng miseries ng bansa ay ibibintang kay Apo Makoy? C’mon! Kapag ang isang tao ay lingon ng ng lingon sa likod habang siya ay naglalakad, chances are, madadapa at madapa siya. Ikaw na ang nakaupong Presidente Pnoy, you do what should be don’t and stop blaming others dahil wala ka pang maipakitang solid proof that you really deserve to be the President of this Republic. Wake up Your Excellency!

       It’s not only the PHL that is experiencing hardship. The global economy is on a slump. The experience is much harder in developed countries where population is not used to frugality. When developed countries tighten up their spending, there’s a domino effect in the rest of the world. For immigrants in a foreign country who may be laid off from work, it’s very scary. It is sometimes better to be poor in your home country than on social assistance in a foreign land. Check the web for international news.

    Would the people of the Philippines so quickly forget the miserable history of Marcos to allow another Marcos to rule the country?  I don’t believe they are all that naive and forgetful.  The reason the country went from an emerging economy to the poverty so many face today can be laid directly at the feet of Marcos.  Now his son wants the people to forget this?  Not a chance.  His father was a thief and brought ruin to the Philippines for self importance, greed and power.  His offspring learned nothing but to attempt to do the same.  Thieves, all of them!

  • gemini2011

    I assure you Senator Marcos that people will stop blaming your father if your whole family will tell the truth, accept the fact, and apologize to the Filipino people.

    I know it’s very difficult for it takes a lot of courage and humility to admit the faults we did, but it is unbelievable if you will claim that all of you are innocent. You’re old enough, well-educated, and well-placed in society. The humbler you get and the sincere you become, the better life would be.

    The Filipino people are suffering. If you just look around you will feel poverty, and very few seem to care, specially among the politicians who promised to make their lives better. Would your family be so kind enough to correct your mistakes by giving what the Filipino people truly deserve?

    What benefits a man if he conquers the world but he loses his soul?

    I am a simple Filipino citizen but I do my humblest share by paying my taxes and doing my job well.This is what I can give to the country I truly love.

    Sometime in the early 80’s, when a Luzon hunter found the cave where Yamashita’s gold had been hidden, Marcos immediately began an extermination campaign against all those who knew about the location of the cave, at the behest of the CIA, who rightfully claimed the 55 Billion dollar treasure as ‘U.S. war booty’. Marcos, being the Pimp to the U.S., had over 70 individuals tortured and killed, something that even impressed the cold blooded spooks, according to one report. Oliver North was part of this operation. Here is a guy Marcos, who enjoyed killing his own countrymen, not only stealing their wealth and resources, but turning their daughters and wives for the sex trade that pacified the U.S.soldiers fighting in IndoChina. Yes, Marcos was the best Pimp the Americans ever had.

    I tend to agree with Sen. Marcos since it has been 26 years already since Pres. Marcos was deposed so it is really sad why the Philippines is still lagging behind our Southeast Asian neighbors. Indonesia also had the change in leadership but it is now starting to experience economic resurgence. Vietnam was devastated by decades long war but their economy has improved dramatically. If our current leaders don’t get their acts together we can expect Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar to surpass us in development.

    I believe that discipline and self-sacrifice must be instilled in the Filipino culture and not vengeance or “weather weather” mentality. After EDSA1, I always get upset with some friends who made fun of that historic event and said “Sobra na Tama na, Kami Naman..ang mangungurakot!” Now after 26 years I have started to lose that EDSA spirit especially seeing how Noynoy is slowly but surely destroying the Fruits of EDSA1.

    Maybe it’s about time for the other millions of Filipinos who participated in EDSA1 to voice out their opposition to this culture of vengeance and finger pointing. Let’s tell our leaders that we want a legacy to leave to our children so they have to get their priorities to improve the lives of the ordinary Filipinos, most specially the Farmers who till the earth to feed us.

      Yes i believe this is what is going on. When Cory took over one immediate project was Agrarian reform, distributing productive farmlands to small farmers with-out the supporting organizational structure and infrastructure. Now we are importing RICE as if we do not know how to plant rice. And the irony is, Hacienda Luisita is still with the Cojuanco’s. 

      Now PNOY’s priority is to get Arroyo and Corona jailed. Vengance to Arroyo related to  the Hacienda Luisita case, and to bring down Corona to ensure PNOY can salvage a favorable settlement on the Hacienda. All of PNOY’s cabinet are focused on this now,
      a nobody is looking after the economy. He seems to be contended with generating employment thru call centers!! The manufacturing sectors are declining, losing the competition to Vietnam and Cambodia. 

      Wake up PNOY!  you only have one term..If you combine your accomplishment with that of your Mom, you might surpass the Marcos regime as the worst in our country.

      You tend to agree with Bongbong Marcos…..Where were you when this family was looting the cofers of the government.  If you were old enough at that time, then you know what they started and what they have done.  Did you know that Ferdinand Marcos was the one who put the law into affect that overseas bank account can not be open to the public even  if there is a case against the depositor unless the depositor give an authorization.   And until now, this was the law these corrupt officials were taking advantage for their own benefits.  And this was also one of the reason the prosecution on the Corona impeachment case was having helluva time on the trial .  Going back to this Senator Marcos, did it ever occur to you that this family didn’t even say sorry for all the astrocities they have committed let alone done something to at least pay back some of the money they have stolen or done something for the poorest of the poor of the country.  And now Bongbong may run  for president.  For what, continue the legacy of his father.   No….I was  not just blaming his father.   The blame goes to the mother too, and the children. They didn’t even have the guts to apologize.  Maybe filipinos would have forgiven them.  As I mentioned before, they were lucky enough that filipinos were civilize enough that they didn’t hang them like Saddam, Ghadafi and other dictators.  Let’s look at the present time.  Filipinos still on the same predicament they were 40 years ago.  Corruptions still an epidemic that ruining the country.  And guess who they learned them from, Mr. Ferdinand Marcos.  As one president said also, “weather…….weather…lang iyan”.   To be fair with Bongbong, let’s blame the filipinos too.  For a long time,  filipinos voted for these corrupt officials always with a promise that their life will improve for the better if elected, and of course with a little perks on the side from the candidates.  Of course, filipinos always being screwed.  And for over 40 years that is what they have done.  It’s just a cycle.  One corrupt president gone…….the next corrupt one comes in.  Now that you have a president (in the name of Ninoy Aquino) who’s doing something to eliminate corruptions, filipinos still criticizing him.  I  wish that filipinos would give him the benefit of the doubt.  You don’t have to like him but at least support what he is doing.  Who knows, filipinos may finally redeem themselves for all the mistakes that were done in the past………

However, it is crucial that a government that is transparent and accountable to the People be firmly in place when the profits starts to pour into the National Treasury. For this reason, Corona and the vestiges of the corrupt Arroyo regime must be eradicated like poison ivy or else this God given chance will be squandered. President Aquino is doing an excellent job in building the foundations towards this change so that All lives are equally benefitted and not just the fat corrupt Arroyos and Marcoses.

Eh ang problema hindi kayo umaamin sa kasamaaan sa rehiming Marcos and even in your grave and from your generations your name Marcos will not be cleared. History judged your father as what he is, you are not  smart enough compared to your father you are just a copy face with a smaller brain.

    One thing is apparent…There is so much that Bongbong doesn’t know or will keep eyes shut about his parents.

    He is a son, psychologically hardwired to defend his family’s honor.

    But if he is to put the past in a redeeming perspective, better for him to make amends with people whose human rights were violated by
    their family’s grip on power. And better for him to do research about the
    effect of the Marcos dictatorship on the Phil.’s economy.

    Can you explain why did your family get rich? Stop blaming your father. He was the root of the trapos existing now. It was his blue print followed by Gloria Arroyo. 20 years your father stayed in power and what did he leave the country. Full of corrupt politicians, uneducated filipinos, huge debts and a lot lot more imprinted to the nation and the people hard to change. Now you the son that aspires to be president what do you bring. What do you offer? You have not proven anything yet. If you aspire to be president learn to be humble (accept the mistakes of your father and if not keep your mouth shut!) and offer peace with the aquinos if you truly want peace for our country. Lot of the people your father devastated is still living so you being the son of the corrupt dictator should somehow compensate by keeping quiet or offer help to the nation. You’re a senator to serve us not to serve you.

    Instead of having the HUMILITY accepting that the rampant corruption and wrongdoings in the Phil govt started during his father’s regime, he has the gall blaming succeeding leaders. This is the legacy handed down by your father & mother Bongbong MARCOS which the Filipinos see in your system of govt.. including other govt officials some of whom are still active.. not surprising for they are being assisted by Satan then and until now. Sad to see that another political clan MACAPAGAL whose offspring succumb to the same system especially having the misfortune of being married to a minion of the devil hiding behind the name ARROYO. This is what President AQUINO is trying to do – remove the rotting cancerous flesh slowly creeping on most Filipinos (mind) and the country’s governance. I only hope your present president won’t be blinded by Satan as well… power can be really excitingly intoxicating.. and once you are drunk from it, you could easily be manipulated by the dark side. Yet the Philippines is still very fortunate.. for God’s blessings have never dwindled a bit.. because most God-fearing Filipinos young and old still turn to Him for comfort and guidance. This is why Filipinos can still smile in time of adversity or misfortunes (as we call it).. for God have never left them, for God’s spark has been embedded in them due to God-fearing Filipinos’ HUMILITY.

        On the contrary, if those Filipinos who voted Mr Marcos Jr, knew and experienced the horrific years under the reign of his father, if they realized that Mr Marcos Jr, his sisters and his mother have most of the wealth that really belongs to them (Filipino people), if they realized they would not be so poor today if only the family of Mr Marcos Sr will return some, if not all, of the monies stolen from the Philippine coffer, if they knew that Mr Marcos Sr pretended to be a “superman” but in actuality he was already very very sick and was able to deceive the people by lying about it, then I am quite sure Mr Ferdinand Marcos Jr would not be a Philippine Senator today!

      • Patas

        How’s that?
        I already explained partly. Out family did not engage in any politics. We lived simply. Mind you, I have 5-siblings, Mom and Dad both worked for private companies, we had an aunt who lived withus, plus 3 cousins, all being supported by my parents. Still, our parents were able to provide the basic needs from their meager salaries, able to put up a modest house in Quezon City and sends all of us to school.

      • manual47

        So you’re one of the family who were satisfied with the Marcoses running the country yet closed their eyes on the astrocities and corruptions being committed by the Marcoses. Well let me tell you something, friend, if you are saying that you have 5-siblings, your parents, and some relatives. Myself, we have the same numbers of people living and more once in a while. But one thing different between us, we didn’t accept the fact that there was astrocities and corruptions going on at that time. I had a cousin who died for the cause of what’s going on. I had a cousin who was member of the army who was killed by their own which we didn’t know what reason for. And you are telling me your family were having the best time at that regime. Well…screw your best time and not think of those people who were put in harms way and died. And you know what, my brothers and sister all finished school and quite succesful. Thanks to our parents who supported all of us while working 7 days a week 12 hours a day looking our small business. Yet, we didn’t close our eyes. We sacrifice ourselves to work hard too. But it doesn’t we will just ignore what had happened during that time let alone forget. We still love the place where we came from….the Philippines. Look at what these corrupt politicians
        and officials has done up to until now. So, will you just sit there, do nothing and just think of the best time…….same as what you did before. You friend has no conscience if you think you can just sit and do nothing. It’s not politics we’re discussing here. It is astrocities and corruptions being committed. For over 40 years since the Marcoses until now. If you think EDSA revolutions did not work, then I rest my case.
        Time for change. Otherwise, it is not always going to be best of
        time………

      • Patas

         And screw you, too!
        not because your family experienced hardship, it would also equate that all the people during that time are having a hard time. Same with if our family didn’t engage in politics, hence we looked positively to our surrounding, it would mean that our family closed our eyes to the atrocities (as you claim it).
        Dude, this is a smack on your face: WE HAD THE BEST TIME OF OUR LIVES DURING THE MARCOS YEARS.
        If you could not accept it, then don’t. But you could not take away my good childhood memories just because you want to whine about your misfortunes.

    2. He insisted everyone to get educated and speak English like the British… 
    3. He regulated all politicians’ salaries so that the best performing official gets the highest pay equal to the best businessman in his country
    4. He rounded up all insurgents
    5. He insisted that couple should have no more than 2 children, after that the wife is mandated to be sterilized to have no more children
    6. He insisted that educated men should only marry educated woman
    7. No proselytizing of the muslims
    8. School children when they misbehave in school get punished by caning,

    Read His book, “From 3rd to First:”

This spineless Lackey could not even demand a proper share for his nations suffering at the hands of the Japs, and couldn’t even muster a few hospitals from this underhanded deal which the Americans would have gladly built them in return.

    Bong bong kawawa ka naman. Hindi mo kasalanan na ikaw ay naging anak ni Marcos at wala ka nang maggaawa kahit ano pang salita ang gawin mo.

    Walang magandang salita ang magpapaganda pa ng image ng iyong namatay ama at kasama kayong buong pamilya.

    Kung gusto mong makakuha ng kaunting simpatya at tila balak mo pa yatang tumakbo sa impossible dream mo na maging prasidente ng ating bansa sa 2016 ang maipapayo ko sa iyo ay ang sumusunod:

    1. Sabihin mo sa iyong ina bago siya pumanaw na ibalik na ang mga ninakaw nilang mag-asawa na hanggang ngayon ay ay nasa Swiss banks at local na yaman na nandito pa sa pilipinas..

    2. Mag-usap kayong magkakapatid na gayon din ang gawin ninyo tulad ng ipapayo mo sa ina ninyo.

    3. Huwag ka munang mang atake kahit kaninong lider ngayon dahil wala ka naman kredibilidad na maipagmamalaki sa buhay mo at sino man sa inyong magkakapatid at lalo na ina mo..

    4. Sariwa pa taumbayan ang lahat ng kalupitan, kasinungalingan at karahasan ng Diktadurya na iyong ama. Napakarami ang nagdusa at namatay ng panahon ng iyon ama.

    5. Huwag mong ipagpilitan na ipalibing ang iyong ama sa libingan ng mga bayani sapagka’t siya ay hindi matatanggap na bayani mag-pakailan man ng sambayanang filipino.

    6. Dapat mong maintindihan na ang kasaysayan o history ay history na hindi mo na mababago pa kahit gastusan mo pa nang buong yaman ninyo. Tanggapan mo na lang ang katotohanang ito. Wala ka kasing kinalaman sa nakakaraan.

    Kung nagbabalak kang tumakbo sa 2016 eh itabi mo nalang ang balak mo at pati perang gagastusin mo sa ngayon. Puwede siguro magtangka ay ang mga apo mo ang gumawa nito kasi sa panahon iyon ay baka makakalimot na ng taong bayan.

    Uulitin ko Bong Bong wala kang kinalaman at kasalanan sa mga ginawa ng mga magulang mo.

    Pasalamat ka na lang dahil mababait ang mga pilipino at hindi ginawa sa pamilya mo ang ginawa ng taga Libya sa pamilya ni Khadafi.

    Si Cory ang pumalit kay Marcos. Pagkakataon na niya sanang matuklasan kung sino ang nagpapatay kay Ninoy. Walang nakita e kasi hindi si Marcos.

    Di ba si Marcos ang itinuro nilang nagpabomba sa Liberal Party rally sa Plaza Miranda in 1971? Anong sinabi ni Salonga after many years? NPA ang gumawa na pinatutuo ni Victor Corpuz.
    Why? Because they, the NPA wanted to kill Marcos politically and Ninoy, who was there at the rally, physically because they were afraid he might become the next president. The NPA did it to kill 2 with one bullet. Marcos politically, Ninoy physically.
     
    And I believe they suceeded in August 21,1983. Ninoy died physically and Marcos died politically after 3 years.

    This is why, until today, the mastermind has not yet been found.

    Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos left us with $26 Billion dollar debt when he was ousted. Just to pay off our foreign debt every year just on interest alone leave us nothing for the nation’s budget. The Marcos family left us nothing to build and maintain schools, upgrade our defense, nothing to do public works, etc. Thanks to our OFW who remits billions of $ to our country, literally help to save our country. The legacy that Marcos left our nation is widespread corruption, which become ingrained among our politicians. So I am going to ask you, how many politicians are not corrupt? If there’s no money in politics, why are all the Marcoses still in politics? To serve the people, really? How many Arroyos are in politics? As they say power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

      1.  during marcos time – ang goverment officials kagaya ng mayor na halos 20 years sa posisyon hindi yumaman -pero ngayun mayayaman na pati anak, asawa at kabit nasa politika na at ang iba pa nga involve sa drugs.
      2.  noong time namin as KB chairman – wala kami suweldo – kami ang nag hahanap ng pondo para sa barangay namin – pero ngayun mga anak mismo ng mayor nasa puwesot na at may suweldo pa at nag papatayan narin dahil sa pera/puwesto.
      3.  noon kay marcos – wala kang takot pumunta sa ibang lugar, pero ngayun kahit sa bahay mo puede kang patayin, marape at masaccer ang boong pamilya mo

    cory aquino’s integrity, for the most part, is beyond reproach. But on one key issue that could have defined her Presidency, she fell short – woefully and tragically short. This was the land reform program. Influenced by her relatives, or perhaps unable to shed her landowner upbringing, she sabotaged land reform by incorporating the Stock Distribution Option as an alternative to land distribution, the end-all and be-all of true land reform. While we could have given this “novel land reform concept” the benefit of the doubt in 1989, contemporaneous events show the real injustice inflicted by cory aquino on their farmer tenants – an injustice insidiously and cleverly perpetuated by the Aquino in the palace today. After at least two massacres – at Mendiola Bridge and the Hacienda Gate – scores of assassinations that included a number of Ministers and Priests, farmer street protests that persist to the present and are suppressed with undiminished ferocity, we see the evils created by the Cory Aquino SDO.
    was cory the true paragon of integrity? on matters that did not affect her family, YES!
    on matters affecting hacienda Luisita, a big, fat NO!!!!!!!!!!

    Ano ba ang nagawa ni Cory? – Nuclear Poer Plant nasayang, US basis nawala at economiya bumagsak – yung mag taong maiigay noon sa Dynastiy daw kagaya kina Daza, Binay, Aquino/Coquanco Family at marami pa ay masahol pa sa kay Marcos, noon ang congresman, governor, mayor at barangay captain pababa ay posisyon lang ang hawak walang Pork- pero ngayung mayayaman pati mga anak nasa posisyon din at nag papatayan pa at involve narin sa drugs.

    Ang masasabi kolang – nasayang ni Cory ang pag babago, pagtamasa ng lahat ng dapat na tolong ng international community para umunlad tayo kagaya sa Thailand at iba pa. – Ang kamalian ni Cory ay alam niya na walang experience siya sa trabaho(Diba  pag nag apply tayo sa trabaho ang hinahanap ay experience at credentials sa schools kung matalino ka) dapat nag resign siya or na maintain ang parliamentary government noon at nag talaga ng Prime minister na economist – Kung titingnan natin si Waliza(Electrician lang) ng Poland at Nelson Mandela(Boxer – nakolong ng matagal) ng )South Africa ay nag resign kaagad dahil alam nila na wala silang alam sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno – pero sa ugali nang mga pilipino na lahat alam niya – ang resulta bagsak ang economiya.

    Hangan ang Pilipino na karamihan sa malaking botanti ay Metro Manila – ay bilib parin sa mga pamilya ng mayayaman or sa mga artista – at iboboto parin nila wala tayo pupuntahan.

    Dahil nga walang nakikitang trabaho ang karamihan ng pilipino – nag pupuntahan sa labas para magtrabaho -ang negatibong nang yari dahil ang mga bansa wala ng respito sa pilipino(Not like Marcos presediency na tinitingala tayo) – karamihan ng pinay nasadlak sa prostitution kasama na mga bakla na nagbigay ng malaking kahihiyaan sa mga pilipino at sa pamilya at sa taas. bakit ko nasabi ito dahil halos karamihan ng GCC, African at South East Asean country napuntahan ko dahil sa trabaho ko – nakita ko na ang mga babae/bakla ay kumakabit sa kahit indian, pakistani, egyptian, bangladish at iba pa. – Mas malaki pa ang bilang ng prostitute sa US Base sa Subic at Clark. Ang masakit pa karamihan ay mga may hitsura, mga may natapus sa college na kung i compare mo sa Subic ay halos doon ay mga grade at high school lang – masakit tangapin pero yan ang katotohanan.

    Marami tayung mga may nakikitang malaking potential para maging presedinte at may proven experience – kagaya kina Villar, Gordon at iba pa pero sinayang natin dahil bilib lang tayo dahil sa pangalan ng pamilya ng mayayaman.

    Hingaad ko na umagat tayong pilipino kagaya sa katabing bansa, ang dignidad ng mga pilipina maibalik at yung mga apo at kaapoapohan natin ay makinbang sa sunod na hinerasyon. 

    Pero ang nakikita ko hangan gnayun ay hati ang pilipino.

        If I ask the Marcoses to apologize, does it mean that I am saying that the NPAs need not apologize? Where did you study logic? Obviously, the NPAs have to apologize. But there’s one difference between Marcos and the NPAs: By their very commitment, the NPAs are rebels. It’s part of their mission to establish a communist state. But the Marcos was the leader of the government who was tasked to uphold the law but subverted it instead. In other words, we expect the NPAs to rebel. On the other hand, it was the duty of Marcos to uphold the law.

    Let’s face it. The late Ferdinand Marcos was the greatest president the Philippines ever had. He made a lot of landmarks like the CCP, MRT, LRT, NLEX. SLEX and a lot more during his term which no one among of his predecessors have ever made. Marcos was a very ambitious man that he put his ambitions into reality like much of the famous infrastructures built during his reign. It is unfair for not giving President Marcos the credit for his accomplishments. During his time the Philippines was number 2 in terms of development in the Asian Region. If Marcos would have not been overthrown, the Philippines could have been better today. Allahu Akbar!!!

        2.  Subic nawala – tayo ang binabayaran ng US, Sa Japan sila ang gumagastos
        3.  Noon ang Mayor hindi mayayaman – pero ngayun sobra na ang yaman at pati mga anak involve na sa politika, kabit nagiging mayor pa?
        4.  Barangay Captain at KB chairman walang suweldo – peron ngayun mayayaman narin at involve pa sa drugs.
        5.  Sabi noon dynasty daw si Marcos – pero tingan mo ang mga Binay ng Makati, Cayetano ng senate, Daza ng Northern Samar, Pimentel at marami pa mayayaman na diba  

        Tanong ko sa iyo? – sino ba ang magnanakaw/

      • Alalyah

        Para sa akin ay masyadong maraming lokong Pilipino at si Marcos ang nagturo ng disiplin sa ating lahat. Noong pumalit si Cory naglabasan ng lahat ang mga lokoloko at mga magnanakaw kaya mayayaman silang lahat ngayon. Si Marcos ay maraming nagawang magagandang proyekto para sa bayan, ngayon meron bang kahit isa pagkatapos nya na gumawa din ng ganong karaming proyekto? Wala, Lalo na ng pumalit si Cory, dumami lang ang kodeta at magnanakaw sa gobyerno ng kamaganak incorporation. Noong time ni Marcos tunay na mababait ang mga tao at may disiplina, Simula kay Cory hanggang ngayon ang mga tao ay mga walanghiya na at walang disiplina, dumadami pang lalo ang mga magnanakaw lalo na sa gobyerno. Ito ang ipinagmamalaki ninyo ngayon na democracy taken back from Marcos, yes democracy ng mga magnanakaw at dumaming corrupt. Ito ang totoong dahilan kaya gusto ninyong ibagsak si Marcos para kayo naman ang magkamal sa kaban ng bayan at nagtagumpay naman kayo kasi hindi gumamit ng karahasan si Marcos. Akala ko noon ay gaganda at aayos ang lahat noong ibagsak ninyo si Marcos, pero ano ang nangyari, lalong gumulo at naghirap ang Pilipinas, ngayon si Marcos pa rin ang sinisisi ninyo, matagal na syang patay. Ngayon isang Aquino nanaman ang nasa gobyerno na kaibigan ng mga oligarchs, communist, terrorist MILF at doble cara at isa ring walang accomplishment in term of economy, progress, jobs, infrastructure projects, and twisted mind. Ang mga buhay natin sa Pilipinas ay lalong lumalala pabagsak papuntang impyerno na akay akay ni Pnoy.

      I agree. Kaya lang ipinatigil lahat yan ni Cory Aquino when she catapulted to power. Para sa kanya ang lahat ng ginawa at ang mga nakabinbing projects ni Apo Makoy ay pawang mali. But later on, she realized that the projects were beneficial to the people. Kaya natuloy ang construction ng C5-E5 roads na pinakikinabang ngayon. The MRT LRT projects were all blue prints of Marcos. Nagnawaka man siya, at least meron siyang ginawa. Mas mahirap yung panay nakaw na lang pero zero ang accomplsiments para sa bansa. 

    • jm20_510

      Marcos was able to built those infrastructures through “international loans”, although the vision and motive were brilliant but the bad thing was most of the govt’s money were pocketed to sustain Emelda and family and friends/cronies lavish lifestyles. 

      In fact, the money that fed Bong Bong, the money that they used to educate him in UK surely came from corruption. If he had conscience, he should rather apologize to what his father and family did to the country.

      pwdng kasalan ko, dpat kasalanan niya o nila.. kasi nga mahirap umamin
      na parte tayo sa pagkakamali

      sa tingin ko tama nmn.. hindi nmn sinabing walang nagawang mali si marcos, ang sinabi lng, stop blamin his father..

      ksi ang halos lahat na lng ng kuwento ay.. kung hindi sana ng abuso si
      Marcos, kung hindi sana naging corupt ang mga Marcos, kung hindi sana ng
      waldas ang mga Marcos… at kung anu ano pa..

      alam na yun, nasa aklat na din at sa web, pero hindi na kargo ni Marcos
      kung mahirap pa rin tayo ngayon, kasi nga siya ay patay na at tayo ay
      buhay pa…

      in short, hindi natin maamin sa sarili na my pagkukulang tayo..

  • Satticus

    I think Bong Bong has a point. We should know how to move forward. Moving forward does not mean we need to forget about Martial Law and EDSA I. We will always remember these things but we should not let these keep us from progressing. We can never change the past so we must focus on things that will make our future better.

    EDSA I should be remembered and celebrated in such a way that it would drive us crazy to progress and not in a way of blaming and attributing underdevelopment to an infamous dictator who have already perished.

    • jm20_510

      If Bong Bong and his family will step down from politics, we can better move forward.

      Sarap sunugin yung pamilya na yan. Hindi man lang marunong mag apology sa mga ninakaw at pinahirapan nila.

      • Satticus

        I appreciate your idealism, JM. However, if we will wait for their apologies and if we will wait for them to step down then we will be wasting another 26 years of a stagnant economy, granting that your assumption is true that they do not know how to apologize. 

        Our government will no longer be a mechanism that will promote and implement the policies (whether health, economic, etc.) of the State but will be reduced to a gigantic mechanism which have for its main, if not sole, purpose is vengeance.

    Thats the problem with our country, crooks could easily get away starting from the Marcos era and now that we’re trying desperately to correct the system the so called people who were against it unwittingly voted for the same personalities who’s credibilities had been tarnished already. Don’t we have any other competent citizens to handle such sensitive posts? Hindi pa ba obvious ang dahilan kung bakit kelangan makipagpatayan for the sake of politics and power? Dahil ba sa pagmamahal sa bansa? Pagmamahal sa paglilingkod ng kapwa? My goodness they love public service so much that their willing so buy votes, spend millions to win but after winning have you heard any of them spending their own personal money for public service? Infact kadalasan pa you’ll hear of them entering into anomalous or questionable contracts kunwari public service dala negosyo. So we blame Marcos for starting with the corrupt system and still got away…but after Marcos we should blame majority of our constituents who had succumbed to the corrupt system and voted this officials in the hopes of being able to benefit from the corrupt band wagon. Kung walang political will, iron hand kumbaga the corrupt system will always hide under the system of democracy and much worst manipulate the law to once advantage. So for now we just have to continue to hope, to dream even if the answers for the problem seems clear we remain blind…

      I share your views. Not partisans to anyone please. Mr.
      Marcos Sr., may have good reasons to the put the nation’s dissidents and their
      propagating anarchism behind bars, but civil order could not be attain when the
      nation was polarized beyond control, thus martial law was proclaimed. Well for
      some time the cards favored Mr.Marcos Sr., but his enemies went overboard and
      got the very man Mr. Marcos Sr., did not wish to confront in any level. But
      heaven has dictated for his fall. One had to also accept the fact there was
      disquiet throughout the nation when Manila was in the grip of this showdown in
      1986, not the provinces. For Manila was the Philippines and, Malacanang was
      Manila,  the powerhouse for the
      politicians, the elite and the influentially moneyed. This country’s
      progressive results should be out in four years time. The witch-hunt against
      Mr. Marcos Jr. is totally impertinent after 26 years.

      Got benefited? Well meron din benefit kasi disciplined ang mga tao noon pero hindi ko ipagpapalit ang mas maraming benefits ng freedom natin ngayon kumpara sa iilan lang na benefit ng martial law noon. It would be foolish to do so.

      Iba pa rin ang malaya dahil mas pwede mo iexpress ang the best mo sa buhay, if you are free you can bring out the best in you because you do not live in fear.

    ALTHOUGH FERDIE MARCOS ORIGINALLY PROPAGATED AND SOWED THE MASSIVE SEED OF CORRUPTION IN FILIPINO CULTURE AND MADE HIMSELF THE ICON AND ROLE MODEL OF INSATIABLE GREED, HE REALLY ISNT JUST THE ONE TO BE BLAMED FOR THE COUNTRY’S WOES. IT RIGHLTY INCLUDES HIS ENTIRE FAMILY AND IN-LAWS, HIS CRONIES, THE MILITARY, HIS ENTIRE CABINET, HIS SUCCESSORS, THE WHOLE GOVERNMENT AND ITS EMPLOYEES, AND LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST THE ENTIRE FILIPINO NATION WHO ALLOWED CORRUPTION TO BECOME THE WAY OF LIFE AND LET THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE NATION’S MISFORTUNES GO UNPUNISHED AND REWARDED. ASK WHY THERE ARE STILL MARCOSES IN THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT, WHERE HAVE ALL THEIR STOLEN WEALTH AND HIS SUCCESSORS GONE TO, WHY ARE THERE STILL REMNANTS OF HIS OLD CABINET  IN THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT. WHY ARE THERE MOVIE, TV, RADIO AND ENTERTAINMENT CHARACTERS WHO ARE IGNORANT IN SERVING THEIR CONSTITUENCY ALLOWED TO BECOME PUBLIC OFFICIALS. ITS TIME FOR EVERY FILIPINO TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND ASK WHO REALLY IS TO BLAME FOR MAKING THE PHILIPPINES THE DUMPSTER OF ASIA.

    So that the country can moved fowrard to prosperity we need to have:
    1,Electoral reforms, the screening of all candidates for an elective office, barring of clans from controlling the politics of a province and region, what is happening today, we have a governor, a congressman and a senator who controls the provinvial politics that are bad for the country.
    2. Judicial Reform, most of the judges are subservient and taking care of their benefactor and not the filipino people, who are paying their salaries.Corruptions in the judiciciary needs cleansing.
    3. Educational Reform: The present system are not the best suited for the development of the country. We have to many graduates that can not be absorbed by the labor market, ending up as unemployed. Emphasis should be more onTechnological school. We have so many lawyers, that are waisted. Manpower development and proper utilization are needed  and not to export them to other countries.
    4.The economic development are not equitably distributed all throughout the country. There are still provinces that are lagging behind.A Regional Development council should be created to oversee the development of each provinces and equitably distribute the development of resources throughout the country.
    5. Setting up factories in every provinces based on the available resources of the province like, coffee, sugar.
    6. Proper Management of the countries resources, like mining. should be geared towards employment creation, processing of the mined minerals to finish product prior to exportation .like nickel, copper and gold.
    7. Modernization of the AFP, and PNP.
    8. Development of  modern communications and transportation,
    9. Fuel and electric prices must be regulated and brought down to trigger the economic development.
    10.Development AND MODERNIZATION OF THE AGRICULTURAL AND FISHERY sector

There were no ill effect on the good masses during martial law. Martial law was for the LOKOLOKO. Marami kasing loko dito sa Pinas at nakita kong napakasafe noon with limited crimes. Kung mayroon mang mga victims of human rights ay iyong mga lokolokong tao. Magagalang at matitino ang mga tao noon di tulad ngayon na mga corrupt, mapagsamantala, magnanakaw, at walanghiya na ang karamihan at walang mga disiplina. Ito ang naging resulta ng edsa 1 rebulosyon pagkatapos na kunin daw uli ang demokrasya kay Marcos.

    Ang sabi lang ni Bongbong ay stop blaming my father for all the woes going on now. Tama sya, bakit ninyo sisisihin ang isang matagal ng patay sa mga failures ng bayan sa kasalukuyan. ang sisihin ninyo ay ang mga naging pinuno after Marcos dahil ang progresso ng bayan ay hindi gumanda kundi lalong pumangit. Sana iyong mga sumunod na pinuno ay inayos ang bayan, marami ng nagdaang presidente after Marcos at ngayon another Aquino with nothing to show for. Akala ko ba na noong ibagsak ninyo si Marcos ay gaganda lalo ang kalagayan ng bayan, anong nangyari di ba lalong gumulo at dumami ang mga magnanakaw. Dumami at naglabasan ang mga corrupt at magnanakaw lalo na sa gobyerno. Kung buhay na kayo noong time ni Marcos ay sana nakita ninyo kung gaano karami ang mga proyektong mga ginawa nya para sa bayan. Noong pumalit si Cory anong nangyari, puro lang kodeta at magnanakaw ang namayani sa gobyerno lalo na ang mga kamaganak incorporation. Ngayon isang Aquino nanaman ang nasa Malacanang na Kaibigan ng mga oligarchs, terrorist MILF , communist and kkk with zero accomplishment in terms of progress, economy, jobs, infrastructure projects and has a twisted mind. Ang buhay natin ay lalong lumalala at humihirap patungong impyerno na akay akay ni Pnoy. Lalong dumami ang high crimes even in broad day light at mga magnanakaw ay naglipana lalo na sa gobyerno. At lalong dumami ang mga corrupt pagkatapos ng time ni Marcos, hindi bumuti ang kalagayan natin bagkus lalong naging worst. Mababait ang mga tao noong time ni Marcos at tunay na magagalang, pagkatapos ng time ni Marcos, mga magnanakaw at corrupt ay naglabasan at nagaagawan sa pwesto sa gobyerno. Ito ba ang mabuting resulta ng edsa 1 rebulusyon, na dapat umayos ang buhay ng mga tao ngunit lalong sumama after like many are saying taking back our democracy from Marcos, eh democracy ng mga magnanakaw at corrupt ang nangyari, ngayon mayayaman lahat sila.

    Target ni Tulfo by Mon Tulfo
    SA front page ng pahayagang Tribune noong Biyernes, ay ang article tungkol sa lolo ni Noynoy Aquino, Benigno Aquino Sr.Si Benigno Aquino Sr., tatay ng martir na si Ninoy Aquino, ay isang “Makapili” daw noong panahon ng Hapon.Ang Makapili ay isang grupo ng mga Pinoy na panig sa mga Hapon.Ang Makapili ay yung mga taong nakasuot ng bayong sa kanilang ulo at itinuturo yung kanilang mga kababayan na pinaghihinalaang gerilya.Maraming Pinoy na pinatay ng mga Hapon dahil sa pagtsotso ng mga Makapili.Sinabi ng Tribune na si Benigno Sr. ay miyembro ng Philippine puppet government.Eh, ano naman kung Makapili man o miyembro ng puppet government ng Japan ang lolo ni Noynoy?Ang kasalanan ba ng ama o lolo ay dapat ibunton din sa mga anak o apo?Ano naman ang kinalaman ni Noynoy sa kasalanan ng kanyang lolo, kung totoo man na ito ay naging Makapili?Hindi ako maka-Noynoy (ako’y saradong para kay Dick Gordon para sa pagka-Pangulo ng Pilipinas) pero foul ang ikinakalat ng mga kalaban niya sa politika tungkol sa kanyang lolo dahil hindi pa siya buhay noong panahon ng Hapon.Maaaring saklot sa politika ang isyu ng personalidad ng isang kandidato, gaya ng pagiging babaero o ang kanyang mental health.Ang mga isyung nabanggit ay may kinalaman sa morality or competence of a candidate for an elective position.Pero por Diyos por santo naman, huwag nang idamay ang kasalanan ng mga ninuno ng isang kandidato kahit na totoo ito!

    “China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia can all point to the progress they have made these last 26 years but unfortunately, for the majority of our people, nothing much has changed today,” Marcos said.
    This is true. Pilipino fishermen are still hanging to their outriggers while their neighbors in Asia are using modern boats to fish. Carabao still rules the farms while Thailand, and others operates tractors and other farm machines. Vietnam will start its “bullet train” project by 2015 while the Philippines has no realistic plan to put up a modest railroad system for the country.

        Don’t follow blindly. Be realistic. Get educated in your views and not just live with the past.

        Let me ask you. How much did Nhoynoy spent to get elected? Use logic when looking at issues.

        True, Marcos committed grievous mistakes to the nation during his martial rule. But we can’t move forward if he is always our reason for the present failures, if our passion is to seek someone to blame except ourselves.

        Many Presidents ruled after Marcos and it’s Nhoynoy at present.What happened? Do you think the stagnation of the nation and systemic corruption in government is still Marcos’ fault? C’mon be honest.

        Is the people’s lack of trust in the government a Marcos dictation until now? Does the dole-out program that spends P39 billion of taxpayers money without real returns in the economy a Marcos program? Let’s be sober and wise.

  • Hfxwst

    It is a sad the Marcos family continues to be endured by the People who Ferdinand so abused. Imelda et al should have been imprisoned. One has to wonder how much cash has to be spread around in each election to keep them elected.  I certainly would not allow my children to marry into that family as they are shameful and will remain so until their wealth is returned to the People.  You cannot bribe your way into heaven (Bishops take note).  It would also be so disrespectful to those already in heaven to have Ferdinand buried close by.   His body should be cremated and given to Imelda for her mantle.

    Ferdinand was an early dictator, we have seen of late what happens to dictators –  Haiti, Libya, Egypt and soon there will be Syria. Create all the drama and tears you want, but a dictator is still a dictator.

  • palakasantayo

    To senator Marcos. If you feel some heroism in your part, why don’t you help the government to return the money or wealth your father and mother stole/stashed away during their time? I’m pretty sure you know where they are hidden. This way you can reverse the mind set of Filipino people about you. Who knows, people might even elevate or vote you to the highest position if ever you aspire to be one.

      Remember, during GMA regime some 500 million was returned but turned into fertilizer scam. But accept that it is during Marcos regime that we had all the edifices, hospitals, roads, bridges, electrification, dam projects, beautification, family planning and  golden age of agriculture where farmers were given help to improve their farms.

    Sen Marcos, POOR you are because at your age you are still deaf-mute about the evil actions of your parents. You want to cover something which truly obvious and manifest. Honestly, I’m wondering why you were elected as senator. Your action of trying to save the face of your father only shows how immature you are. But, there is another way of redeeming this stigma attached to your family: return all the money stolen by your family to the Filipino People. It is only in this way, that history will be favorable to you, that, at the end of the day, someone from the Marcos Family made the greatest sacrifice of unselfishly returning what is truly due to the Filipino People.

    Acknowledging Pres. Marcos’ accomplishments as a two-term President + Prime Minister + President/Prime Minister throughout the span of almost a decade and a half is fine. Ignoring the blatant human rights abuses, cronyism and the amount of debt he plunged this country into is not. 
    While Sen. Marcos is correct in saying that government efforts towards development have yet to yield lasting results, it would be a gross disrespect to the families of those who fought and died for the liberties we have today to say that “[m]
    ost of what we hear now from all sides are still within the ambit of propaganda.” The military kidnappings were real. The death squads were real. The tortures were real. The secret executions were real. 

    The cronyism was real too. The foreign debts are very much real. These continue to affect the way our economy runs, and have been a key hurdle towards development. To ignore this is simply ridiculous. Look at the GAA each year and check the allocation for debt. Look at the financial markets and see which corporations are the largest nationwide and have the deepest demographic reach – then see who owns them.

    What Sen. Marcos wants us to do is to forget the failures of his lineage and focus on the failures of today. Yet as the adage goes, those who forget history are bound to repeat it. Is that really a history we want to repeat?

        The liberty you are exercising right now in publishing rather baseless claims against the late Archbishop. In the Marcos era, if Sin were an ally of the incumbent dictator, you would have been picked up at your house, dragged into a military vehicle in full view of you family and neighbors, carted off, and never heard from again. Just because you posted 3 sentences that could be construed as malicious and offensive. In fact, go ask the family of Archimedes Trajano. He was beaten to death by when he asked questions that Imee Marcos found offensive.

      And thats my point…we all remember EDSA history every year on this day…We always honor the Aquino family…yet nothing changes.   26 years later and two Aquino presidents…with Pinoy 12 years as a Senator….our corruption is worse, the economy is worse, crime rate is really worse, we have declining schools and 10 million OFW’s working overseas.  I really don’t consider the Aquino’s an asset for this nation…they are a liability when they force their family legacy on me each year.  They force their family names on roads, airports, schools and national holidays.  i just so sick of Philippine politics…we repeat the same mistakes.   Right now OFW’s are the glue that holds this country together…and not Aquino.

      • AllaMo

        No. it is not to honor any Aquino, that we must commemorate the ’86 EDSA revolution. It is to remember the one shining moment when the Filipino nation became a shining beacon for peaceful democratic change.

        Not one. Not one malefactor from the conjugal-dictatorship has been brought to justice. This is the reason why corruption runs rampant in our benighted country.

      • http://raggster.wordpress.com raggster

        So, you’re blaming PNoy for the state of things today, without qualification? Without thinking that, perhaps, there has been 26 years, 4 other Presidents, one of whom was here a post-Martial Law record of 9 years, and that their cumulative acts brought us here today? And you expect PNoy to reverse everything in the span of 6 years? Don’t be ridiculous. No one can do that. What PNoy CAN and OUGHT to do is to lay the foundation and framework moving forward to minimize corruption now, eliminate it in the near future, and to increase gov’t efficiency in order to promote private enterprise. That is what the anti-corruption campaign is about, that is what the impeachment trial is about.

        If you’re sick of politicians platsering their names over everything the PEOPLE have accomplished, so am I. But don’t get mad at Aquino, he inherited this system of politics, and to his credit he’s trying to change it – albeit not as quickly and as universally as we’d hoped. But the sticking point for me is that we finally have someone up top who genuinely wants things to CHANGE, not just economically but culturally, politically. Even if you dislike Aquino on other levels, at least don’t junk the paradigm shift he is trying to bring into the national consciousness. Go past your own biases!

For 26 years Marcos has been blamed for all the government corruption, a decline in schools, and the bad weather.  The Aquino’s have made political and huge monetary fortunes since the Marcos era all based on EDSA.  Now history is  repeating over again with Aquino making his next political vendetta against GMA. History repeats itself this month as Aquino blames all corruption on Corona.  History will repeat again when he chooses his next political enemy.   Today the government agencies are more corrupt than at anytime under Marcos.

    Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos serves as the benchmark of Philippine corruption. So long as there remains people who suffered under their dictatorship, they will be blamed for the country’s misfortunes, and rightfully so. Why? because to this day the Marcos family have not apologized for their wrongdoings nor have they returned what they have taken from the Filipino people.

    Ferdinand and Imelda will remain mastermind suspects in the assassination of Sen. Benigno Aquino, and this can never be erased from the Filipino mindset.

    Is it fair to say Buddhists are more forgiving, kind or understanding or respectful, or hardworking and so on and so forth? I have worked with those nationalities here in NYC and I believe that they are… gentle and kind, and respectful…

    The Marcos era was an era where control was exerted to bring order to the chaos of our political system. The family based politics had showed that whoever ruled handed out opportunities to his immediate as well as distant relatives.Not to the whole populace.Marcos thought he could tame it but instead he got swallowed by it. The following presidents also tried and failed. What we have to begin is an accounting to the people not to our families. Justice and opportunities should be meted out evenly not because personalities are connected to us.If we fail to do this then our nation building will fail. This is the real nation building and not prosecution or finger pointing.

  • mangtom

    Yes, BongBong, your dad was a “saint.”

    LabkoPinas said: The Marcos era was an era where control was exerted to bring order to the chaos of our political system. He controlled the whole country, but unable to control HIMSELF.

    He clamped down on corruption in the government. But he enriched himself so filthily it was beyond belief.

    He was a decorated veteran of WWII-he awarded himself fake medals.

    And your mother? She was a Santa Imelda. She was so greedy she bought thousands of pairs of designer shoes that her name was associated with anything that had anything to do with kaswapangan and kawalang hiyaan. In Ilocano, lam-og ken awain ti bain na. Please translate to her because she is from Leyte.

    How does it feel to be enjoying the fruits of your parents’ gross greed? I bet it feels good because you have grown used to it. An SS Guard of Hitler’s elite troops was asked: how can you stand seeing these trainloads of Jews being burned? He said, “one gets used to it”. I bet this applies to you and your siblings.

    Filipinos are talented people. But they lack the talent to elect a good leader.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NXU2XGAHFDYLAQULE3TMTR6SWU Brando

    The political elites got hurt by Martial Law. The average Filipinos got benefitted. There was peace that everbody felt safe walking on the streets even during the night. Those scared were scared with themselves because they were bad elements of society and the political foes, the NPA included, of Marcos who did not want the ‘dicator’ to succeed so that they could advance their objective. 

    Marcos’ political foes blamed on him the bombing of the political rally of the Liberal Party at Plaza Miranda in 1971. Scores got hurt including Sen. Jovito Salonga. After a decade, Salonga found out that it was not Marcos who masterminded the bombing. It was the NPA. This was divulged by Lt. Victor Corpuz who joined the NPA and rejoined the Phil. Army after he analyzed his wrong of joining the communists. He said the NPA did it and blamed it on Marcos so that his downfall is accelerated…so that Marcos will die politically.  The LP stalwart Ninoy Aquino was not at the Plaza Miranda that time of the bombing, a question that made many eyebrows raised.

    On August 21, 1983, Ninoy Aquino was killed by a ‘gunman’ named Rolando Galman, the military said was a communist hitman. The camp of the opposition said he was planted by the military, or something like double-crossed. The opposition blamed the death of Ninoy on Marcos. I don’t believe so. Even Ninoy did not believe Marcos would direct his killing that was why he came home. Marcos was not stupid one who would gamble his political future because I am certain he knew that the death of his main political rival, when blamed on him, would be his end politically.  And it happened.

    Until today, the mastermind and the real killer of Ninoy have not yet been unmasked. It seems nobody from the Aquinos and their close supporters are interested anymore in pursuing this. 

    Many of the soldiers accused of conspiring for the death of Ninoy became true Christians while inside the penetentiary. Some died because of illness. The living most of them are now preachers of the Gospel. But no one from them would ever claim they really did the killing. I pitty them for getting punished of a crime they did not committ.

    There must be a closure to this tragic incident.  People must be informed who really was the culprit and mastermind.  Definitely it was not Marcos. Then who? To me, it was someone who wanted Marcos killed politically and Ninoy killed physically, because he could not be killed politrically, so that he would become the next man at the throne in Malacanang.

        You were there as part of the rallying group, I am certain. You did not know you were used by the communists and the political end of others aligned with them. There was a bloody riot because that was what they wanted to be done while they were at the background safe. That is how the communists work. They want chaos everywhere all the time because they want people to believe they are the better alternative for a government. Remember the ulitimate objective of the communists is to overthrow the democratiic government and supplant it withtheir own – communism. This they are doing until today.

    Dismiss irresponsible posts. What the people needs is the change the political culture and get educated so election will become a tremendous power to change the nation by electing the right candidate. Education and disciplined political culture until now have so much to wish.

    Don’t follow blindly. Be realistic. Get educated in your views and not just live with the past. Learn from the past but be passionate about the future. 

    Let me ask you. How much did Nhoynoy spent to get elected? Use logic when looking at issues. Do you think his financial supporters in the election will not ask favors in return?  

    True, Marcos committed grievous mistakes to the nation during his martial rule. But we can’t move forward if he is always our reason for the present failures, if our passion is to seek someone to blame except ourselves. Many Presidents ruled after Marcos and it’s Nhoynoy at present. What happened? Do you think the stagnation of the nation and systemic corruption in government is still Marcos’ fault? C’mon be honest.

    Is the people’s lack of trust in the government a Marcos dictation until now? Does the dole-out program that spends P39 billion of taxpayers money without real returns in the economy a Marcos program? Let’s be sober and wise.

      Ferdinand Marcos was the symbol of: corruptions.  And that is a fact.  As one commentor has written on this forum, Marcos threw a stone on the pond.  And the ripple effect it  created is still being felt until now.  Do you think if Marcos has done goods things during his adminstration we will have this debate and argument.  Not really……but because Marcos initiated this problem and took the helm for 20 years and turned  it to a dictatorship without regards to the rights of the people who elected him, you can not blame the electoral or the people for not having to forget and forgive.  If Marcos has done some good things, they were all forgotten by the corruptions and astrocities that he committed.  Having wrote the above, we may blame the voters as well because they were the one who put those previous presidents on their positions.  However, I put the blame more on Marcos and next presidents who took over after Marcos than the people themselves because as president he or she has solemn obligation to the people to serve them the best they can.  Not the other way around.  And the irony of this, I hate to say it,  filipinos were always being screwed.   When enough is going to be enough.  Here we are on the twentieth century, filipinos are still on the same predicament after over 40 years trying to get rid of corruptions.   Some of the people making their argument on this forum think that Mr. Aquino is not the right  president who can eliminate corruptions.  They may be right.  However, let me ask them, who do you think can do the job well and get the economy moving, if not Mr Aquino.  I hope these people who are writing against Mr. Aquino have someone in mind better suited.  Only 4 years to go.   Is it Bongbong Marcos……(may God help the filipinos).  By the way so you know, I have no political party affiliation….. I just see Mr. Aquino as lesser of those evils…..

        The non-performing, ineffective politicians who hasn’t bring any good to the people except dole-outs always have Marcos as their scape-goat. So many president have been elected and Nhoyny is the latest and yet Marcos is still the one they are blaming for their failure to solve the economic problem and rebellion.

        The government system was established to confront the problems of the nation. That is the main duty of the leader – to guide and manage the government to deliver the mandate. Sadly, the people posting comments are ignorant of the role of the government and politics.

      • manual47

        lady…you didn’t read my comment well…..I wasn’t just blaming Marcos.  I blame all the previous adminstrations and their cohorts in putting the Philippines on the predicament it is now.  But Marcos initiated all what was wrong with the government.now.  At present, Philippines got Mr. Aquino as president whom he won fair and square on the election (thank God).  And filipinos are still divided with their opinion of Mr. Aquino.  You can’t have a perfect president.  There will be mistakes and decisive decision will be made.  But at the end of the day, it is the filipinos who will benefits if the decisions made were good.  Mr. Aquino has only been on his position for only two years.  The past adminstrations completed their time for 6 years and look where the country end up.  Still the same predicament.  Why not give Mr. Aquino a chance.  You have given the past adminstrations the whole 6 years without accomplishing what the filipinos expected of them.  The country still experiencing poverty, economic decline, rich become richer and poor become poorer.  Yet, I see a lot of negative opinion of Mr Aquino.  He deserve a chance.  At least give him the benefit.  And Anne, you are right.  4 years will be sufficient enough to give the president a madate to prove himself.  6 years seems too enough……….

  • SeanPhilippe

    Mr. Marcos,

    There is so much that your father should be accountable for. In fact, your family should be held accountable in many things.

    YOU NEED TO REALIZE THIS:

    YOUR FATHER AFFECTED THE LIVES OF EVERY FILIPINOS.

    And WHY?

    1) There will be NO CORY, NO RAMOS, NO ESTRADA, NO ARROYO, NO NOYNOY as President of this country.

    2) There will be NO ENRILE, NO CORONA to talk about.

    3) The people that was killed or remain unaccounted would have not happened and these people will have their family and by this time, they are the grandparents of some children.

    4) The money that was stolen could have been used to improve the economy and create jobs. Grandparents or parents of the present generation would have been working. Married couples will probably busy working to earn money instead of staying at the house making children. Many would have not born, Many would have a different life as compared to what it is today.

    5) This country would have been “the USA of the East.”

    6) OFW’s is an abbreviation NO ONE WOULD KNOW.

    And I am confident that many others  can ADD MORE TO THE ABOVE.

    When you throw a piece of stone in the middle of a pond, it creates a ripple. 

    YOUR FATHER THREW NOT JUST A STONE BUT THE ENTIRE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.

    And we are the by-product of this ripple effect caused by MARCOS, THE D!CTATOR, YOUR FATHER.

Now that he is refreshing the minds of the people about the past involving their family, Kapag tumakbo siya ulit as senator, he can notice the effect of his pronouncements on his reelection especially if he votes for the acquittal of Corona which I am quite sure he would!

    BRING BACK BAYANI BF FERNANDO AS MMDA CHAIRMAN, SO MANY SIDEWALK VENDORS IN THE NARROW SIDEWALKS AND DIRTY FOOTBRIDGES 

  • kalampagin

    From WIKIPEDIA:

    In December 1938, Mariano Marcos, his brother Pio, his son Ferdinand, and his brother-in-law Quirino Lizardo were prosecuted for the murder of Julio Nalundasan, one of Marcos’ father’s political rivals. On September 20, 1935, the day after Nalundasan (for the second time) defeated Mariano Marcos for the National Assembly seat for Ilocos Norte, Nalundasan was shot and killed in his house in Batac. According to two witnesses, the four had conspired to assassinate Nalundasan, with Ferdinand Marcos eventually doing the killing. In late January 1939, they were denied bail[4] and in the fall[when?] of 1939 they were convicted. Ferdinand and Lizardo received the death penalty for premeditated murder, while Mariano and Pio were found guilty only of contempt of court. The Marcos family took their appeal to the Supreme Court of the Philippines, which on October 22, 1940, overturned the lower court’s decision and acquitted them of all charges but contempt.
    Marcos confiscated businesses owned by the oligarchy. More often than not, they were taken over by Marcos’ family members and close personal friends, who used them as fronts to launder proceeds from institutionalized graft and corruption in the different national governmental agencies as “crony capitalism,” Marcos’ friends using them for personal benefit. With genuinely nationalistic motives, crony capitalism was intended to redistribute monopolies traditionally owned by Chinese and Mestizo oligarchs to Filipino businessmen though in practice, it led to graft and corruption via bribery, racketeering, and embezzlement. Marcos also silenced the free press, making the state press the only legal one. He also seized privately owned lands and distributed them to farmers. By waging an ideological war against the oligarchy, Marcos gained the support of the masses though he was to create a new one in its place. Marcos, now free from day-to-day governance which was left mostly to Enrile using his power to settle scores against old rivals, such as the Lopezes, who were always opposed to the Marcos administration. Leading opponents such as Senators Benigno Aquino, Jr., Jose Diokno, Jovito Salonga and many others were imprisoned for months or years. This practice considerably alienated the support of the old social and economic elite and the media, who criticized the Marcos administration endlessly. 

    Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile, Chief of Staff of the Philippine Constabulary Fidel Ramos, and Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Fabian Ver were the chief administrators of martial law from 1972 to 1981, and the three remained President Marcos’ closest advisers until he was ousted in 1986. Enrile and Ramos would later abandon Marcos’ ‘sinking ship’ and seek protection behind the 1986 People Power Revolution. The Catholic hierarchy and Manila’s middle class were crucial to the success of the massive crusade. 

    In 1983, opposition leader Benigno Aquino, Jr. was assassinated by his Philippine military escort at the Manila International Airport upon his return to the Philippines after a long period of exile. The available evidence suggests that Imelda Marcos and General Fabian C. Ver planned the killing, but it is possible that Marcos himself made the actual order to have Aquino killed. This coalesced popular dissatisfaction with Marcos’ authoritarian governance and pilfering of public wealth, leading to widespread protests against the regime. 

    The “People Power movement” drove Marcos into exile and installed Corazon Aquino as the new president.[42] At the height of the revolution, Enrile revealed that his ambush was faked in order for Marcos to have a pretext for imposing martial law. However, Marcos maintained that he was the duly elected and proclaimed president of the Philippines for a fourth term.

      It is possible because of Hacienda Luisita and more benifits to the Oligarchs. People should think on how the percentage of the economy was divided during the 1987 flawed Cory’s Constitution–Favorable to the Oligarchs.

    “””Stop blaming my father for nation’s woes”””–Senator Marcos

    Senator Ferdinand R Marcos, Remember that the whole country and its citizens are the VICTIM’S.

  • Beersheva

    I don’t blame you Mr. Marcos. If I had your billions, I would also live in a dream world.

    That’s right. Don’t blame only FM, but also the FL and the whole clan of cronies, some are still in power. 

  • D_BystandeR

    Bongbong Marcos should be happy he is now a Senator despite what his father did to our country. His becoming a senator is a living testimony that people have a short memory. But he should be thankful his father’s “stinking records” of human rights violations was not given wide coverage by the media in that presidential election because the focus was with Noynoy and his political enemies. If he thinks his election to the Senate is a good indication for his presidential ambition in the future, I think he should be advised not to test the tempers of the people because  by then the “sins” of his father will be so magnified and when that time comes he has no place to hide.

      • Bonica chim

         Marcos- pa rin; dahil after 26 years- they are still elected,  in government posts- and more popular than any other political clans;-
        itong mga human rights victims daw- kunwari lang yan; its just a magnification of the rival political enemies—supported by the  media- 26 years has passed- ang dami ng presidente umupo sa palasyo- bakit – i blame pa rin kay Marcos?

    Maybe bong2 forgot that when his father took over the country, we were the 2nd economic power in asia. when his good ole father left we were on our way to becoming the pariah of the far east. so much for not getting the blame.

    i guess when you’re the heir to the most hated leader of a regime ( 2nd to gloria in my opinion), the best you can do is just do damage control no matter how inane and imbecilic you sound.

  • mangtom

    Yes, your devilish father is dead. Can’t blame a corpse. Thank God. Now the blame will rest on his super greedy wife and children. You inherited his immense wealth obtained through corruption and you also inhe
