Aquino won’t ‘forgive and forget’ sins of past administration



MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III on Monday turned down calls for him to forget the sins of his predecessor so that the country can move forward.

In his third State of the Nation Address at the Batasan, Aquino warned that the Philippines would suffer if he would not punish the people who plundered the country to enrich themselves.

“Forgive and forget ang lahat ng atraso ng mga naglubog sa atin sa bulok na estado? Forgive and forget para maibalik ang lumang status quo? Ang tugon ko: Ang magpatawad, maaari; ang makalimot, hindi. Kung ang nagkasala ay hindi mananagot, gagarantiyahan mo ang pagpapahirap muli sa sambayanan,” he said.

    Kung all-out ka against corruption parusahan mo rin ang mga nagkasalang miyembro ng KKK mo.Huwag kang selective and let justice prevail. Sasaluduhan pa kita.

    You are on the right track Mr. President. Jail those who are found guilty of graft and corruption among other high crimes. There can be no reconciliation without accountability. Make Dorovo and company account for their sins..

    BIGYAN NYO PO NG TRABAHO ANG NAKAKARAMI SA AMIN!!!

    • PinasK0ngMahal

      maghanap ka tamad!

      • AbdullahZahir

        bugok! may trabaho ako. ilan ang walang trabaho sa atin? 

        sa inyong kaanib sa katangahan ni PinasKongMahal makinig kayo:

        ayon sa NSO,  Out of the estimated 62.7 million population 15 years old and over in January 2012, those in the labor force was estimated at 40.3 million. 

        sabihin mo yan sa mahigit kumulang 22 milyong pinoy na walang matinong mapagkukunan ng kabuhayan dahil sa kulang ang trabahong pwedeng maiaalok ng ano mang industriya ng bansa.

        ang kalutasan nyan ay hindi sa aking sariling pagsisikap kundi naayon sa polisiya ng pangulo sa pagpapalagu ng industriya sa pag gawa. bugok ka!

      • mherr

        bugok..if may trabaho ka, hindi mo sabihin yang “ang nakakarami sa amin”…palusot mo na lang yan kasi napahiya ka ng tinawag kang tamad…tao talaga…likas na tamad pero mayabang…

      • AbdullahZahir

        hindi ba’t may karapatang akong maghain ng nararamdaman kung ako din mismo ay nakaranas ng kawalan ng trabaho sa kabilang banda ako man ay may tinapos? 

        mherr, wag gagaya-gaya sa bugok na si PilipinaskongMahal kung di ikaw ay bugok din dahil hindi mo alam ang pinagsasabi mo at siguradong hindi mo kilala ang taong sinasabihan mo ng tamad! bugok ka… 

        dinanas ko ang maging unemployed at ramdam ko ang magkaroon ng hindi de kalidad na trabaho dahil ako minsan ay hindi makahanap ng trabahong angkop sa akin dahil walang mainam at sapat na mapagtatrabahuan sa atin. hindi lang sana sa bilang ng trabaho mag tuon ang pangulo kundi sa kalidad din ng kung ano ang meron.

        hindi  mo ba napapansin, bugok na mherr, kung bakit marami sa pinoy ay may mentalidad na “kahit ano na lang muna, ang importante kumikita.” dahil sa walang makuhang trabahong angkop sa tinapos. ito ay kawalan ng kalidad na trabaho. 

        yan ang dahilan kung bakit may mga guro tayong nagiging katulong, mga doktor na nagiging nurses, mga commerce graduate na nagiging sales lady at mga engineer na nasa call center. kawalan ng de kalidad ng trabaho sa nakakarami sa amin.

        Oo, kasama pati ako at ang 22 milyong walang trabaho.

        ang tawag sa amin, unemployed at underemployed. bugok!!!

      • mherr

        hello..you should be realistic. Pnoy is not God. If in the meantime, you are underemployed, it is better than being unemployed at all. At least, may kinaaabalahan ka. Hindi ka lang dakdak ng dakdak.
        But sorry to know your fate. I am happy with my job because it is in line with my bachelor’s degreee. I work in IT and I got a lofty income.
        But bottomline is, ikaw ang master sa pagbabago ng iyong buhay. Huwag kang mag tamad tamad at iasa lang sa government.
        Do your share. Work hard. Well, I cant blame companies if they cant hire you because you have an unimpressive scholastic records.
        You are the master of your own fate. Simulan mo ang pagbabago sa sarili mo.

      • AbdullahZahir

        again you are on your guessing game spree. 

        if i am an HR officer assessing you for a position, and i see you are that presumptuous, i won’t hire you. i felt sorry for them. :P 

        try mo rewire ang utak mo first para di ka mag mukhang ars-likcer ni panot.

      • mherr

        siguro HR officer sa isang small company, kaya underemployed…wahahaha…

      • AbdullahZahir

        mukhang hirap ka pa rin ba sa pag iintindi na nasa kamay ni pnoy nakasalalay ang pagbibigay trabaho para sa 22milyong unemployed? 

        mukhang di ba maarok ng pag iisip mo na ang chronic na problema ng kakulangan sa trabaho ay hindi sariling sikap kundi isang pambansang polisiya ukol sa pagpapalaganap ng industriya sa pag gawa (foreign or local investments, private and public)?

        sa palagay mo ba ang libo-libong nurses na gustong magtrabaho sa ospital but ended up working as call center agent has anything to do with sariling sikap? 

        your just an IT “expert” that has little or nothing much of knowledge with the world around you.

      • mherr

        hi abdul, mukhang hindi mo pa rin matanggap na hindi God si Pnoy. Hindi nya malutas ang ilang dekadang problema sa dalawang taon lang. Kaya, let us do our share. Hindi lang tayo, complain ng complain. Maybe, if we can influence other to be optimistic, at least we can help in nation-building to give people hope.
        Hayaan mo. If 5 years from now, medyo maunlad na tayo, then we can already prevent the exodus of nurses going abroad. But in the meantime, let us just be patient and do some things if not for survival, but to change and improve our current state of living.

    I love it when he always include that in his speech…it shows obvious immense immaturity (speaking to the obvious style).   Buti na lang, Filipinos lang ang NAIS makinig.  Because if it is under CNN’s scrutiny, it will all boil down to a predicament something inside (that psyche).
    Hahahaha!  Ginawa/Humiganti na ng lantaran, sinisigaw pa ang poot ng pa-ulit ulit na laang!  What kind of person is he?  That psychological problem must be known.  He must admit it…it’s obvious that it’s out of his control.  “Holed up at the palace”?… to deliver only that mediocre SONA speech?
    Hahahaha! Sabi ko:  “Kayo ang gumawa niyan”.

    Masyadong mainipin sa pagbabago ang Pinoy. Gusto isang iglap lamang. Marami din ang buong pusong umaasa lang sa maibibigay. Ang biyaya ay hinahanap at pinaghihirapan. Ang libre ay karagdagan lang sa biyaya. Ang pinaghirapang biyaya ay 99% ang libre ay 1%. Kaya kung libre ang hinahanap talagang ang pakiramdam ay laging paghihirap. Hindi iaabot ng gobierno lahat ng pangangailangan kundi sariling sikap.

    So he’s referring to the former President and the issue with the Hacienda Luisita land that he owns when he says this.

    I know he can’t forgive and forget but I truly believe the former President was just doing what was best for those poor farmers slaving away day in and day out when she returned the land back to the farmers.

    The President didn’t like that of course coz its a big land and its his and now he’s going after the former President because of it. In fact, he already has exacted revenge on the former CJ coz it was during the former CJ time in the Supreme Court that they upheld the decision to return the Hacienda Luisita land back to the farmers.

    However, the way that he is exacting revenge on the former President with baseless accusations and cases lacking merit and evidence is not right. He spoke a lot of achievements in the country during his SONA, which ironically enough are achievements because of the work that the former President initiated and established. But he forgot to mention the many major problems that the country is still currently facing.

    Maybe he should just forgive the former President with his land dispute and forget about it and just focus and fix the problems that his “bosses” = Filipino people are dealing with today.
