Aquino to feuding senators: Get to work

By |

DAVOS—President Aquino has appealed to the feuding senators to set aside their money quarrel for a few days and focus on crucial legislation such as reforms to the antimoney laundering law.

Refraining from taking sides in the controversy over Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile’s cash gifts to fellow senators, the President said his interest was in accomplishing as much as possible in the legislative arena—given that there were a few remaining session days in Congress.

“Our interest is that we need these laws to be able to govern better and we don’t want to start from square one,” Aquino told the Filipino media on the sidelines of the annual World Economic Forum here.

Congress will go on recess in February to give way to the campaign period for the midterm senatorial and local elections in May.

Mr. Aquino said there were so many pending measures awaiting prompt action. “The bottom line is if these are not passed by the current Congress, in the next Congress you will have to go back to the committees and go again through first, second and third readings. (It’s) back to square one,” he said.

“So actually paguwi ko, makikiusap ako sa ating coequal branch na puede ba tayong mag-concentrate, na itabi muna natin yun ating personal issues. Merong issues ang bansa na kailangang asikasuhin [So when I get back, I will appeal to our coequal (government) branch for them to concentrate, to set aside personal issues. There are national issues that need their attention],” he said.

 

Respectful tone

 

But Aquino said he would make such an appeal “with a very respectful tone to a coequal branch.”

“But, again, in the last three days (of the remaining Congress session), there are several measures that hopefully will be passed because they really are at such an advanced stage of creation,” he said.

Aside from the bill seeking to strengthen the law against dirty money, Mr. Aquino cited the human rights compensation bill as another piece of crucial legislation.

On the third amendment to the antimoney laundering law, he said the Philippines would have to meet the deadline set by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

“We have deadlines to meet and we don’t want to be a hindrance to our ability to really participate in the world financial market and the furtherance of our economic objectives,” he said.

The Paris-based FATF is an intergovernmental organization initiated by the world’s richest nations under the G-7 group to develop cross-border policies to combat money laundering and terror financing.

On the freedom of information (FOI) bill, the President said it would be a tough call for him to certify it as urgent at this stage. The bill has just come out of the committee level and has yet to be presented for plenary debate.

Meanwhile, the controversy in the Senate over how their funds were used continued.

Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III last week filed Senate Resolution No. 930 urging a review of policies on the creation of oversight committees for the purpose of cutting down on expenses and saving taxpayer money.

Abolish oversight panels

 

In his resolution, Pimentel indicated his preference for the abolition of the oversight committees, giving their functions to the existing regular committees of the Senate.

“[There] is a need to review and to rationalize the manner by which the Senate has been creating and budgeting for oversight committees, not only in order to minimize internal squabbling over Senate resources, but more importantly to help ease the Filipino taxpayers’ burden by the more efficient use of taxpayer money,” Pimentel said in the proposed resolution.

Oversight committees monitor the executive branch’s implementation of laws passed by Congress.

There were 35 oversight committees in 2012, some of them with huge budget allocations.

The General Appropriations Act of 2012 showed that aside from the congressional commission on oversight of agricultural modernization (allocation P37.8 million), other oversight committees with huge allocations included the congressional commission on science and technology and engineering (P36 million); the congressional oversight committee on labor and employment (P28.3 million); the joint congressional power commission (P25 million), and the legislative oversight committee on the PH-US Visiting Forces Agreement (P18.1 million).

        He does not know what he is saying.

        He does not know that stealing pork barrels is the same as stealing from the banks. 

        He does not know that big boy’s grabbing of a candy from a toddler is bullying. 

        He does not know what sense and sensibility and decency mean.

        He does not know when to say “good job” when a good job job is done.

    • Observer_din

      sir post mo nga mukha mo dito, baka mas mukha ka pang mongoloid kesa sa kanya..
      obviously mas magaling sya kesa sa iyo kasi sya ang presidente,at napapatakbo nya ng maayos ang bansa.. eh kung ikaw baka mga baranggay tanod lang baka di mo pa kayang ayusin.. hahahahahahahaa

  • Fulpol

    But Aquino said he would make such an appeal “with a very respectful tone to a co-equal branch.”
    ————————————————

    WTF???  what have you done during the stint of Corona as Chief Justice in Supreme Court… your co-equal… respectful tone??? or rudeness???

    LOL

    • sanjuan683

       Ikaw na lang kaya maging President para masunod ang gusto mo. Daming mo gusto eh kumandidato ka na lang.

    • Observer_din

      FULPOL dapat noong panahon pa ni GLORIA MACAPAL ARROVO mo hiningi yang FOI na yan,dahil sa 9 years niya doon laganap ang garapalang nakawan.. ang problema ngayon kayo maingay noong last admin tahimik kayo cguro dahil isa kayo sa nakikinabang?? hehehe

  • Fulpol

    Aside from the bill seeking to strengthen the law against dirty money, Mr. Aquino cited the Human Rights Compensation Bill as another crucial legislation.

  • Fulpol

    Meanwhile, the President said it was a tough call for him to certify as urgent the Freedom of Information Bill given the specific conditions set by the Constitution for any proposed piece of legislation to qualify as such.

    Nag tataka lang ako,bakit wala kayang control ang Presidente Pnoy sa racket ng mga Senador?

    Wala nang chicks,wala pang control at discretion man lang kung ano talaga ang dapat gawin sa Senado,I think he must have more Powers rather than just a proficient target shooter.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VDMUJ6NKKCLWRMVMJRLJFI633I Rene V

    it is funny how positions change people for good or for worse. i decided not to look too far back in history and look into the now and then somehow project what these people in authority will do. the senators will act the same selfish ways and i do not expect them to be better than brats further on. the president, although not as brainy nor academically accomplished, seemed to have the talent to have good people to advise and help him, for the most part. somehow, having a bully squatting on someone else’s backyard does not really alarm the senators (who were supposed to be more intelligent than the president). but then they just went into their merry ways unmindful of the external threat. so who are the ones acting stupid?

  • totokalel

    Yon lang ang masabi?!,its all about the anti-laundering law? much more for that is the passing of Freedom Of Information bill  para magkaalaman pa ang mga sekreto ng mga halal na pinuno natin.yong dalawang bill na yan ang dapat ma e-pasa at magiging law na!

    Anti-money Laundering again? We already have strict rules on this what we need is the Freedom of Information bill. Honestly gusto lang ng admin gamitin ang AMLC to pursue its enemies the way they did with Corona. Until we get a truly independent institutions they do not deserve power which could easily be abused by who ever is in the Palace.

The likes of Jinggoy, Sottocopy, the ever faithful bodyguard Honasan and attack dog Lacson will be crying in the corner dahil wala na silang datung na makukuha. Remember, Jinggoy and Sotto learned a lot from Entile and also from Miriam. Lalabas ang pagiging stupid ng mga Ito pag wala na si Enrile.

  • calixto909

    Pres. Aquino appealing to the senators to set aside their rumpus and tackle the pending bills boomerangs to your weird dispensation of your prerogatives. Uncanny dispensation I’d say because you had all the time in the world to certify the AMLAC law as urgent but you neglected, favoring instead to push the RH bill’s enactment though you knew earlier that it shall divide the nation.

    The amendment of the AMLAC law, the FOI bill and the Human Rights compensation bill are more pressing legislation that you should have prioritized as urgent measures since they are indispensable adjunct to your drive against corruption.

    It could be pictured on a vantage point that a clandestine agenda hatched by your group deterred you from certifying these three measures as urgent.

  • Dy Pailad

    The senate is in self destruct mode it is not necessary for the President to ask the LP ro deliver the coup de grace besides if he does it the spontaneous combustion will be extinguished. What is happening and the resultant self cleansing of the senate is good for the nation. It is the best election education material ever assembled.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5STEU22AD7YRHQSB6RE56ZDSYA J

    Mr President, the senators are not squabbling on personal issues but issues about their behaviors as senators. Behaviors on how they treat public funds. They must answer their actions to the people. Sa lumabas na baho nila wala na silang moral ascendancy para gumawa pa ng batas. Pang chitcharon bulaklak na pulutan nila sa taong bayan pa kinukuha.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3TWVIBNBHJIBKXLUC5IT2JYM5E Harry

      Remember that the President is talking about ant-corruption in the World Economic Forum and what is happening back home in the Senate is causing him extreme embarrassment; he has to find a way to subdue the growing controversies. 

      • Dy Pailad

        Dont worry the senators are doing it themselves. It is unnecessary kung ang President makisawsaw. Remember it is the minority against the majority that is check and balance at its best.

      • Observer_din

        yeah, tama, parang gusto nila makisawsaw si PNOY sa issue sa senado, tapos babatikusin na naman ng mga PRO ARROVO at sasabihin nakikialam sa co-equal branch..  ano kaya palagay nila ke PNOY pareho nilang estupido… hehehehe

    As predicted, while our President talked on anti-corruption on the World Economic Forum, he will also be questioned on the storm over corrupt practices in the Senate.

    He has never showed serious concern on those issues he mentioned to the Senate and to use them as disguise to quell the quarrels is now too late.

  • Garote

    PNoy appeals to the senators to focus on crucial measures? Was he referring to the RH bill, Divorce bill and Same Sex Marriage bill? Or to  the FOI bill, Anti-Dynasty bill, etc.? Because if it’s the latter, he does not consider them as important measures. Remember, it was his over-killed push for the passage of the RH bill that divided the congress, especially the senate. Now he is appealing to the senators to stop the squabble? He must be losing some screws in his head.

    • Observer_din

      OH really?? hanggang ngayon ba naman RH BILL pa din?? let it go tapos na eh.. DIVORCE BILL naman.. hehehehe

      • Garote

        Why not tell your pres, to fast-track his immoral intentions all the way and also pass a SAME SEX MARRIAGE law. It’s about time he should get married and have a married life with a partner of his choice and preferred sex.

        Why not tell your pres, to fast-track his immoral intentions all the way and also pass a SAME SEX MARRIAGE law. It’s about time he should get married and have a married life with a partner of his choice and preferred sex.

         

      • Observer_din

        you know that SAME SEX MARRIAGE will not pass, even the divorce bill will be hard to pass.
        your comment is only a reflection of you being disappointed by what happened to RH Bill. But anyway since naisip mo na dapat ipasa ang SAME SEX marriage ,bakit di ikaw ang magsabi sa presidente ng Pilipinas?
        And i suppose you are not recognizing him as a president, i hope “your  President is better than ours”. so who’s your president so we can compare if you wouldnt mind?

      • Garote

        There are already Divorce bill, Abortion bill, Gay Marriage bill, etc. queuing in line ready to be passed. The foreign-corporate lobbyists IMF, WB, Bill Gates, having been pushing for their passage. Who are you to stop these strong and moneyed lobbyists?  If your mongoloid, foreign-corporate puppet president called PNoy cannot stop these bills from being passed, who are you to say these bill will not pass? You are a nobody to them. Why don’t you be the one instead to talk to your own pres., you’re in the same mental frequency with him anyway.

      • Observer_din

        those were your fears, you are just imagining things. even in the US not all state are allowing  same sex marriage.. you are looking too far.

    01. PNoy should just enjoy his time in Davos Switzerland and let the Senators enjoy their little food fight. The Anti-Money Laundering Law needs one very important amendment, which is to penalize banks for accepting money of dubious origin/s. But it won’t be the end of the world if the Philippines does not meet the deadline of FATF.

    02. More importantly, PNoy should remind his allies in the Congress especially Speaker Belmonte to get the FOI Bill passed.

    03. For PNoy to have a newfound respect for co-equal branches of government and yet get involved in the Corona impeachment, Gigi Reyes might as well be referring to him when she said — let’s expose those hypocrites.  Corona’s bad, but what about the MOOE?

      It is a free campaign commercial. Remember both Binay and Estrada said that there is nothing wrong with the christmas gift of Enrile.

Naturally they want to stop the bleeding as this may cost them the elections.

  • Your_King

    Aquino appeals for the Senate to do their jobs yet he himself is not. Senate right now and actually for a few years now have been focused on personal drama which is looking more showbiz. Maybe they are just following the lead of a President who is not focused on uplifting the Filipino impoverished but rather focused on a personal vendetta he has with his former Ateneo professor who also happens to be the predecessor who gave away his Hacienda Luisita land back to the farmers.

    • Observer_din

      it’s not vendetta, it’s delivering a promise to put to jail those who abused their power during the GMA administration. anyway whether you call it vendetta it’s still feels good for the filipino people to see GLORIA MACAPAL ARROVO behind bars, mejo bitin nga lang ng konti kasi di pa namin nakikita si FG(FILTHY  GREEDY) Mike ARROVO,… HEHEHEEHE

      • Your_King

        Jailing GMA because of a personal vendetta with a case that has no evidence supporting the accusation is the actual abuse of power being committed by Aquino. If you do not like someone, in this case GMA, you have every right. But to jail her without merit is shameful.

      • Observer_din

        it’s not personal vendetta, so sad that everybody in the philippines know how corrupt is GLORIA, FG(filthy greedy) Mike and their allies were, but you were the only one believes that she is innocent… i dont understand if you ever lived here during the darkest years of the philipines( the years of gloria’s regime). anyway if that’s your belief im not forcing you, it’s just that almost all filipinos believe that it’s what GLORIA deserves.

      • Your_King

        I’m not here trying to prove her innocence just for the heck of it…i am merely following the law which states that everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Therefore, following the rule of law we must presume her innocence because there is no evidence to prove her guilt. Simple as that. It is just sad that the Philippines believes everything the media and propaganda spits out.

      • Observer_din

        then the law itself says (sabi nga ni LASON hindi ako abogado but this is as far as i know) that anyone charged with plunder should be jailed without bail until proven she/he is guilty of the charge.
        She just deserves where she is now, she’s an embarassement in our history, shameful to have a president that makes our country no.1 in corruption, and bragging that she is an economist we didnt get an urgrade in our int’t rating like what we have now. She took every filipinos money… she makes us the sick man of asia.. that’s the common people know and believe and you cant take away that from us, sir.

      • Your_King

        Unfortunately you cannot speak for the common people. Maybe you should visit the poor living in Malabon or the NGC or the people working at the PCUP…they’d give you the reality that at least GMA cared enough about the poor to help them and even visit them. The problem with your way of thinking is that you have let media propaganda dictate your way of thinking. GMA is charged with plunder in a case that has no evidence of plunder…look it up at the Ombudsman…Carpio-Morales who is Aquino’s rep at the Ombudsman forced the plunder charge to go through even after the first panel of investigators that she herself put in-charge of investigating the PCSO case found no evidence of plunder.

      • Observer_din

        whatever you say, puro technicalities lang ang sinasabi mo. nagdudumilat ang katotohanan, katibayan nyan ang pagiging no. 1 nating corrupt during her reign.. i’m not speaking for the common people, but im from the common people, I was raised and live in payatas,i only moved out after i finished my college and have my job to support me,but still my father and my other siblings lives there and i always visit them every week.. im talking about first hand experience not about what the newspaper say,not what about other’s say, it’s about my own personal experience sir.

    “Get to work”……it will take more than that  from the president to tell these officials and politicians.  Why not tell them “stop corruptions”.  I dare you, Mr President.  I doubt if you even think about it or let alone tell these offical and politicians.  Maybe because corruptions start at the top.  I wrote “maybe” and I admit I could be wrong.  But by the look of the rate that I can see from these squabbling going on at the senate, there may be more come than what filipinos had seen and heard that may come to light. “Daang matuwid” will not work until it comes from the top all the way to the bottom of every government offices.  To some, it (daang matuwid) was just a notion to make people feel better.  So far filipinos has not seen the fruit of it.  It may have changed some perception on the president.  Nothing more.  But I commended the president of having the initiative to give people hope.  “hope”, that’s about it………let’s hope it become a reality.

  • mabyrik

    “he would make an appeal “with a very respectful tone to a coequal branch.”-AQUINO will say to senators

    Please Pnoy, there is another branch you forgot to mention, more supreme than a combined executive, legislative and judiciary; read the preamble of the constitution and you will see what I mean-The people of the Republic of the Philippines.

    Pnoy, these senators have been fooling the people of the Philippines by treating them as id/iot and du/mb that they can waylay anytime they want to. They steal from them with impunity and will just say “giving Christmas gifts using the people’s money is a time-honored tradition” and pocketing the big chunks of pork barrels is as normal as changing girl friends because they have been going on for years.

    Pnoy, when these senators condemned Corona because Corona was accused of hiding dollars and pesos in his banks accounts, which he sourced from personal business dealings but excluded them in his SALN, they conveniently forgot to consider that they themselves have hidden dollars and pesos in their bank accounts and are also hidden in their SALN. The bigger sin is, a lot bigger than Corona’s sin is-they sourced them from their “Christmas Gifts”, pork barrels, etc. Now Pnoy, who has more to explain to the people-Corona or the senators? You know the answer. 

    Now you want to appeal to these charl//atans with respectful tone because they come from an equal branch of government. Pnoy, they do not need respect. They need condemnation too, much like the condemnation Corona got from them. 

    Just tell them to return the Christmas gifts, to stop stealing from their pork barrels and to stop conducting investigation in aid of legislation until they clean their own house. Right now that house is engulfed with mess, dirt and stinking s/^h&$t and a major overhaul is what it needs to become habitable again.

    Pnoy, we, the people, more supreme than the combined all branches of the government, beg you, in consonance with your “Tuwid Na Daan”, use your influence to kick Enrile out as SP and to appeal to them to stop impunity and clean their house. Then and only then, you can appeal to them with respectful tone later, after the clean-up.

      Sabi mo nga eh Pero ang tanong ano masasabi mo sa Performance nya ngayon? Kung sino pa ang sinasabi mong walang pakinabang eh sya pa pala ang mag aangat ng ating Ekonomiya. Kaya never judge at baka bumalik sa mukha natin ang  gawaing yan.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/AUPTS47VZP6O5O4ABVWTACXOQU Febien

        Sya ang magaangat ng ekonomiya natin! OFW ang nag Aangat ng ekonomiya.pauwiin nga nila ang 50 % lang na OFW tingnan natin kung may maibigay na trabaho si Presidente! umaangat ang ekonomiya? Ang daming tao ang patuloy na nagnanais lumabas ng bansa para magtrabaho! A Sy

      • FernandoBusi

        Better thank the Fed and our own Bangko Sentral for this cause when I look at the governments fiscal spending and programs wala pa ring tangible impact sa economy. Just look at where the budget is being spent. 

      • maypakialamtayo

        OFW ang dahilan ng pag-angat ng ekonomiya natin, kasi sa panahon nya lalong dumami ang lumalayas dito para magtrabaho sa ibang bansa at kasi parin, wala syang programang magaangat sa buhay ng pilipino, tinuturuan pa nyang maging tamad ang mga mahihirap imbes na trabaho ang ibigay, binibigyan ng cash gift monthly, alam naman natin na ang iba dyan ay ibinubulsa lang ng mga opisyal ng dswd at local gov. unit.

    Hey, I remember PNoy was a former senator, can we ask him kung tumangap din siya nang additional MOOE and cash gifts noon. He is so silent about the issue…hmmm…aminin. Miriam, Trillianes and Cayetano paki tanong nga kay PNoy.

  • captainramius

    LETS BE FOCUS HERE…

    THE SENATORS PASSED A LAW THAT WILL BENEFIT THEM AND LEGALIZED CORRUPTION … NO SUBMISSION OF RECEIPTS FOR MOOE JUST CERTIFICATIONS THIS IS AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION AND A DOUBLE STANDARD AMONG GOVT EMPLOYEES AND AS PUBLIC SERVANTS SPENDING PEOPLES MONEY IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    NOW ANOTHER FORM OF LEGALIZED CORRUPTION THESE SO CALLED OVERSIGHT COMMITTEES WITH MILLIONS OF BUDGETS WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THESE COMMITTEES IS THIS NOT JUST A DUPLICATION ALREADY OF THE SENATE COMMITTEES IN PLACE ?

    THIS IS NO DIFFERENT FROM INSTANT PROJECTS BEING DONE IN LOCAL GOVT JUST TO USE BUDGETED INFRASTRUCTURES SO THAT COMMISSIONS FROM THE CONTRACTOR TO THE MAYOR CAN BE FACILITATED

    ABOLISH THESE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEES I AM VERY SURE ALLOWANCES AND ALL KINDS OF PER DIEMS ARE ALSO DISTRIBUTED EVERYTIME THESE B.S. COMMITTEES HOLD USELESS MEETINGS.

    The simplest organizational alternative to OVERSIGHT COMMITTEES and other MONEY MAKING ORGANIZATIONAL SCHEMES in the senate, house of representatives, and other government positions is to ask all PIGS  [ Politicians Insatiably Gorging Slop; SLOP in the form of Power, Pork Barrel, Public Funds, Dirty Money, Influence Peddling, Graft, Corruption, SHAMELESSNESS ] how MUCH TAXPAYERS’ MONEY they want to POCKET.

    If each of them want ONE BILLION PESOS, then put that in the budget, SO THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TO QUARREL, WORRY, THINK about how to MAKE EXTRA MONEY OUT of the TAXPAYER.

    This is the ONLY PURPOSE of PIGS in government; TO ENRICH THEMSELVES BY STEALING FROM JUAN DE LA CRUZ WITHOUT ANY HONEST WORK!!! Let us make them HAPPY, and give the BILLIONS of PESOS they are SALIVATING for with all their scheming minds.

    Our ONLY ALTERNATIVE  is to be INTELLIGENT and DISCERNING VOTERS; DO NOT VOTE for PIGS!!!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/AUPTS47VZP6O5O4ABVWTACXOQU Febien

    Sabi puro batikos lang yung iba. Ganyan din naman sila sa mga kalaban ni Presidente,ah! Ano ba nagawa ni BS Aquino noong senador sya? Isa sya sa tumanggap ng pork barrel noong sya ay senador. Hundred million na pork barrel taon taon ang tinanggap ni BS Aquino.

  • Komen To

    A sad day for the Philippines. Senators questioning fellow senator on the details of Christmas gift, shocked the poor Filipinos after learning the huge amount of money flowing in the senate. And the Preident could only think that it’s a personal quarrel? That this issue is not relevant? As in who cares if they get that much money from the people of the Philippines. I do not know now what’s going on in this country? Whether or not a wise vote for a better candidate is still possible, if the people still have a choice this coming election, if the Daang Matuwid is a serious campaign, all I can say is….OMG

  • bugoybanggers

    Hay naku po! Politika sa Pilipinas. Nanawagan sa mga taga MINDANO, kumalas na sa Pilipinas.. let’s join SABAH with Malaysian federation. Masyado ng BULOK ang pamamalagad ng mga taga LUZON. Mga Abogado at mga nakapag aral sa MANILA. Lalo pang ibuBULLY ng CHINA ang mga ito kapag nagkataon dahil sa mga KAWALANGHIYAAN sa mismong sangay ng Gobierno. NakakaHIYA.. daming mayayabang.

  • goldilock

    Return the money given as gifts. Stop converting budget into savings and converting savings into Mooe.

  • FernandoBusi

    Yes the President is right both houses of Tongress should get back to work. PASS the FoI Bill already. 

    And while your at it eliminate the pork of everyone from the Tongress man to the Senatong to that 300++ billion lump sum ‘Special Purpose Fund’ of palace.

    The senate is becoming inutile and useless. Imagine kung ginamit sana ang mga araw na nagbabangayan sila sa pagpasa ng mga batas mas matutuwa pa sana ang mga Filipino. Nakakasuka na ang mga pinaggagawa ng mga mambabatas na ito. Hindi na sila nahiya na buong mundo napapanuod sila na pinag-aawayan nila ang partehan sa pera ng bayan. Mahiya naman kayo…magtrabaho naman kayo! I won’t vote any of the re-electionist from the senate lalo na ang mga kamag-anak ng mga kasalukuyang nakaupo sa senado.

    Enrile said in a live interview “Kung batohin mo ako batohin din kita”. What morals can you expect from a mere probinsyano who had a bit of luck to study in Manila – not much.

I wonder where I can buy a Binay, Enrile, and Estrada voodoo dolls so I can practice my witchcraft.

  • disqusted0fu

    That’s it? This could be a case of serious corruption under Pnoy’s government. If he really is into putting an end to corruption, this is one case that he should not let slip. It would also make a perfect reason for him to certify the FOI bill as urgent and make sure that it passes in Congress before they adjourn.

    Of all people to tell officials to get back to work, it’s Pnoy? He should say that to himself as well. And I mean the real work, not just propaganda.

  • Garote

    There are already Divorce bill, Abortion bill, Gay Marriage bill, etc. queuing in line ready to be passed. The foreign-corporate lobbyists IMF, WB, Bill Gates, having been pushing for their passage. Who are you to stop these strong and moneyed lobbyists?  If your mongoloid, foreign-corporate puppet president called PNoy cannot stop these bills from being passed, who are you to say these bill will not pass? You are a nobody to them. Why don’t you be the one instead to talk to your own pres., you’re in the same mental frequency with him anyway.
