UNA: We are a true friend to Aquino



Vice President Jejomar Binay

The United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) on Thursday maintained it was a “constructive opposition” ready to support President Aquino despite party lines, as it blasted his spokesperson for accusing the coalition of “confusing the public” with its stance toward the ruling party’s leader.

In a statement, UNA candidates and officials said they were being “more of a true friend” to the President as they were capable of pointing out mistakes made by the administration instead of sugarcoating them.

“We are the new opposition—an opposition who will be supportive of matters which the President is undertaking and we will help when he needs our suggestions. But we will not stop exposing, telling the people about wrongs that are happening,” said Vice President Jejomar Binay.

His daughter Nancy, among UNA’s senatorial candidates, added: “UNA is like a true friend to P-Noy (Pres. Aquino). We can tell him when there’s something wrong.”

Malacañang spokesperson Edwin Lacierda had said Wednesday that UNA was “confusing” the public by maintaining its support for President Aquino despite being an opposition party.

He said UNA was just riding on Mr. Aquino’s popularity because going against the President could “diminish their chances of getting elected.”

UNA is a coalition between ousted President Joseph Estrada’s Partido ng Masang Pilipino and Binay’s Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan. The two are joined in a leadership triumvirate by Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.

“The position mouthed by Secretary Lacierda is of one who has a very narrow mind and not mature enough to accept constructive criticism. We are here to make President Aquino succeed by honing his administration to be the best that it could be,” said Rep. Milagros Magsaysay, another UNA senatorial candidate.

Obstructive opposition


“UNA is not an obstructive opposition group. We are here to provide the necessary checks and balances needed for democracy to thrive in this country,” she added.

And unless Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas’s allies speak with one voice, Binay would not be convinced he is running for president in 2016.

Not that it matters at this point, Binay said.

“Everybody has a right to be a candidate,” he told reporters on the sidelines of yesterday’s opening meeting of the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (Gopac).

Binay admitted he was surprised by the sudden disclosure of Sen. Franklin Drilon, campaign manager of the Liberal Party’s senatorial candidates, that Roxas would be the party’s presidential candidate in 2016.

Roxas said he did not expect Drilon to make the statement. Drilon said he was only answering a question of a talk show host about the LP’s future plans.

‘Lame duck’

Binay also denied Drilon’s allegation that UNA was out to make Mr. Aquino a “lame duck” president.

Binay said UNA remained supportive of Aquino’s “daang matuwid” and reform agenda.

“How can he be a lame duck when we support him,” the Vice President said in Filipino.

Binay said some quarters were just trying to create a wedge between Mr. Aquino and himself.

“They are sowing intrigue between the President and myself. I don’t know what their purpose is. There is no intrigue between us,” he added, also in Filipino.

Aquino had told reporters who accompanied him to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that he did  not have any “issues” with Binay.

Popularity boost


Binay also downplayed administration claims UNA was taking advantage of the President’s popularity to boost the chances of its senatorial candidates in the coming elections.

“In the first place, we also rank high in the surveys, especially if you take the surveys of all three of us leaders of UNA—Binay, Enrile and Estrada—together,” the Vice President said.

Meanwhile, UNA’s senatorial candidates will have not just one but two proclamation rallies in the face of the major campaign offensive launched by Team Pinoy of the LP, Nacionalista Party, Akbayan, Nationalist People’s Coalition and Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino coalition led by President Aquino.

Aside from a big Cebu kickoff rally on Feb. 12, UNA will stage another massive rally in Tondo, Manila, the bailiwick of Estrada. With a report from Christian V. Esguerra

       MANILA, Philippines – Sen. Franklin Drilon on Friday said he does not
      believe some United Nationalist Alliance candidates are “true friends”
      of President Aquino.

      Speaking to radio dzMM, Drilon said some UNA bets badmouth the President even before they brush their teeth in the morning.

      “Yung kasamahan nila diyan hindi pa nagsisipilyo, hindi pa nagkakape, inuupakan na ang Pangulo,” he said.

      He also noted that some of the opposition bets openly reject some of the measures being pushed by Malacañang in Congress.

      In 2010 even if PNoy ran as Independent he could win without the support of LP. It was supposed to be an election that Roxas could not lose…pero ano ang nagawa ng LP para kay Roxas.  Wala..!   It could not sway large chunk of supporters of PNoy and instead the same supporters went for Binay. As they say, the rest is history.

  • Fulpol

    why VP BInay threw his support to Gwen Garci-a? that is direct attack to Mar Roxas, and not to BS Aquino III..

    Mar Roxas is the DILG Sec..

    VP Binay is just so cautious not to hurt the feelings of BS Aquino III…

    • catalansbarce

      Anong cautious si Binay not to hurt the feelings of Pres. Aquino III? He threw his
      support to Gwen Garcia instead ang suspension order ni President Aquino ang
      dapat suportahan niya dahil siya ay cabinet member niya. Kaya Fulpol, huwag
      ipagtanggol ang IDOL mong KURAKOT at DOBLE CARA . Alam ng madla na magaling
      yan IDOL mo pagdating sa campaign strategy., kaya sabi ni Estrada after sa election.,
      hindi niya alam kung si Binay ang binoto niya ..,

    UNA : “We are a true friend to Aquino.”

    UNA took a page out of Sun Tzu’s playbook.

    Despite UNA’s claim that it is a “true friend” to PNoy, they support and tolerate the antics of the law-breaking kapal-muks Cebu Governor Gwen Garcia and claim that her suspension is politically motivated by LP.   Their actions are the opposite of what they say.  Just shows that Binay & the UNA members are liars and thieves who will try to hang on to PNoy because he is popular.  Huwag magpaloko sa eleksyon.  No to United NAKAW Alliance!!

    UNA: We are a true friend to Aquino…

    For Pnoy to ponder about UNA’s friendship.

    It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.
    True friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked.

    lalong pag-ingata’t kaaway na malihim,
    siyang isaisip na kakabakahin.”

    “Dapuwa’t huwag kang magpahalata,
    tarok mo ang lalim ng kaniyang nasa;
    ang sasadatahi’y lihim na ihanda,
    nang may ipagtanggol sa araw ng digma.”

    UNA indeed is a true friend of Aquino.

You are also  a very smart politician.  Alam mo  kung paanong bolahin ang masa at alam mo kung kelan labanan ang nakaupo. Hindi mo pa kaya si Nonoy pero alam ko naghahanap ka ng kahinaan niya.

  • kontra_boohaya

    Like in a war, everything under the sun goes in politics.  Kung popular ang nakaupong presidente e di sakyan mo na.  Ganun din kung mabaho gaya ng nakaraan e i ipakita mo sa tao na oppose ka sa kanya.  Total nambobola lang naman ang karamihan sa mga poooooliticos sa mga campaign sorties nila.  Laging pinapangako na bigyang pansin ang economiya (trabaho), infrastruture, talamak na kowrhapsyon, droga, pagsisira sa kalikasan, krimen, etc pero kadalasan ay inuuna muna nila ang kanilang personal na pagpapayaman (mula illegal man o hindi).  In short, empty promises at personal agenda ang umiiral kapag nahalal na.  Ngayon, oposisyon man o hindi, kapag solid at komprehensibo ang plataporma ninyo na ina adress ang economy, corruption, criminality, security, environment, energy, education, infarstructure, etc. malamang marami kayong mahahakot na boto.  Kung papogi lang e “tatanggap kami ng mga pabuya ninyo, pero iboboto namin ang kursunada.”

    2013 is really the year of the snake.

    Like a boa constrictor, Binay sings praises as he slithers into the unsuspecting public. His words are like spitted venom, trying to mesmerize the people only to be devoured later. Binay will put to shame the avarice of the Marcoses.

    Binay is the epitome of a trapo – dirty, unashamed, and made corruption as his family’s main source of income. His mindset is to capture the presidency at all cost. It is an ambition he yearned for as he idolizes former Pres. Marcos to this day.

    He learned from the past president how power can be used to further personal interests and had a taste of it when he was appointed by Pres. Cory Aquino as the supposed guardian of Makati City after the so-called EDSA revolution.

    What follows next was the unprecedented level of corruption in Makati. Nope, he did not ransack the treasury but bled dry the companies in the business district in a shakedown that stung the business community. His slickness helped him evade charges of corruption.

    After strengthening his economic base, Binay proceeded to position members of his family in establishing his political fiefdom. In line with how Mafia works, members of his family now control the city with his daughter as a non-performing legislator, and a son as the a_s sitting mayor. Such set-up ensures Binay’s access in the business circle which will help generate additional funds in his bid for Malacanang.

    So beware. 2013 is the year of the snake.

    • catmanjohn

      Enrile, Estrada, and Binay are more like fork tongued vipers who can only strike when you get close to them. Don’t be fooled Philippines, get out of this muck they have subjected us into so our children will be spared of their ills. 

    • rethinking_madness

      2013 is not just a year of the snake…it is a year of a water snake. The water element is very important in Chinese horoscope.

      The political boa constrictor: If there is a gigantic political boa constrictor today, it is the Liberal Party. It manages to take a hold, through the Executive, on the Legislative and the Judiciary. Its prime weapon, aside from the huge resources of the government with its strong hold over the bureaucracy, is the fatty pork barrel. Through this pork it compels both the traditional and the non-traditional politicians to change their political color to yellow otherwise their pork barrel will be withheld or delayed. It can do this exploit on pork barrel without the continuing terror attacks by the yellow press. Recall how the yellow press demonized the Arroyo administration over the issue on the partisan use of the pork barrel.

      Compared to LP boa constrictor, VP Binay looks like a worm that germinates the earth. In Chinese horoscope, water is weakened by the earth. In fact, the earth has the capacity to extinguish water. In a sense, VP Binay can tame this cunning water snake, the LP boa constrictor.

      The Aquino administration, dominated by the Balay group under the leadership of Mar Roxas of the Liberal Party, a prominent political nemesis of VP Binay (of the Samar group) for the 2016 presidential elections, is often criticized of its rhetoric–its cunning and deceptive talks (the downside of the water snake). As journalist Amado Doronila put it: “long on sermon on good governance and short on investments in economic infrastructure.” In contrast, VP Binay is known for his action. He’s a man of few words but accomplished so much as a local executive in Makati. To link Binay to Marcos is a desperate effort to reconstruct history by portraying VP Binay as a supporter of the Marcos dictatorial rule. But history attests otherwise. Historical facts cannot be altered by rhetoric.

      The rise of VP Binay to the political ladder after he was appointed by the former President Cory Aquino as OIC in Makati (Not all OICs survived in the political arena against the well-established local elite politicians) can be likened to an ordinary government office worker who studied law as a self-supporting student and rose from the ranks to become a career government executive. This executive position is earned thru hard work, diligence and competence; not by appointment of the kaibigan, kaklase at kabarilan.

      If the antidote to political dynasty is the merit system dictated by performance and not by genetics, then VP Binay and his family are like the siblings in the Senate Pia and Alan Cayetano. They are supported by their constituents and the Filipino people not merely by the family name of their late father, Senator Rene Cayetano, but by their own merits. One of the dominant positive traits of the water snake, aside from its black color, is its ability to influence other people by utilizing the genius of other minds as vessels in realizing its creative ideas into positive action.

      Beware of snakes? These water snakes are with us. They have two faces in public. However, to say that these snakes are all named VP Binay, that’s a double-talk… cunning and deceptive. Beware, indeed!

      • DinngMae

    UNA campaign can be summed up on Toby Tiangco’s declaration:  “Sa amin naman maliwanag. Yung sa kanila daang matuwid; kami naman daang
    maganda. Maliwanag sa amin iyan. Even sa ads ang sinabi nila daang
    matuwid; kami daang maganda. Pwedeng tuwid pero lubak-lubak. Dapat

    SINO ANG TAKOT SA LUBAK NA DAANG MATUWID?  Malubak and daan dahil sa hamon at pagsubok.  As long as we have hope for a better future for our children, I will walk BAREFOOT on lubak na daan, head up, because I can see where I am heading.

    Aaanhin mo ang magandang daan kung di mo tanaw ang patutunguhan?

    against the President could “diminish their chances of getting elected.”

    This is exactly what they are doing. One look at who is running under the UNA ticket indicates a UNA vote is unhealthy. Basically, if you want a return to the old corrupt ways, vote UNA.

    • Dy Pailad

      The survey may not be true if majority of Pinoys are followers of Inquirer.   Jack, JV and Nancy are popular no doubt and one doesn’t need a survey to demonstrate that but that survey was done before the Gigi-Johnny scandal and before the Catholic Church stand on dynasty came out. Let us see if their popularity hasn’t made a nosedive after these two important events.

    Patay kayong LP. Whoever thought of this political strategy by UNA by riding on the popularity of Pnoy is a genius. How then can LP now counter this? UNA has no distinct platform to brag about so, they try to project to the gullible voters (which is a majority in the Philippines) that they support Aquino at ang siste nito, mas nauna sila at mas maingay sila kesa LP senatorial candidates about their support for Aquino. Kung ikaw ang LP, masasayang ang panahon mo sa pagpapaliwanag sa mga botante na ang ginagawa ng UNA ay panlilinlang sa halip na makapagkampanya ka.

    Kasalanan lahat ito ni Pnoy. Wala namang batas na kailangang bigyan mo ng papel ang VP. Dapat sana kahit ano, walang binigay na posisyon dito kay Binay.

    Mga kababayan, please don’t get me wrong. I don’t prefer any of these candidates. I am voting independents and no-names who don’t belong to any major political parties. Ang kinatatakot ko lang talaga ay si Binay. Pagnanalo ang anak nya at ang mga dynasts na si Enrile, Ejercito at Binay, sigurado na ang panalo ni Binay sa 2016. Alam nyo ba ang ibig sabihin nito?  Ang masasabi ko lang, si Binay na galing sa wala, has riches far more than the combined riches of Arroyo and Estrada. Ganyan ka garapal magnakaw si Binay.

    Sana mag-isip-isip kayo. Huwag kayong boboto sa mga dynasts, LP or UNA.

     His daughter Nancy, among UNA’s senatorial candidates, added: “UNA is
    like a true friend to P-Noy (Pres. Aquino). We can tell him when there’s
    something wrong.” => Note the word used by Nancy Binay: “. . . LIKE a true friend. . .”. She did not say “. . .A TRUE FRIEND. . .” It sounds UNA is JUST PRETENDING TO BE A FRIEND!!! For CONVENIENCE?

    “The position mouthed by Secretary Lacierda is of one who has a very
    narrow mind and not mature enough to accept constructive criticism. We
    are here to make President Aquino succeed by honing his administration
    to be the best that it could be,” said Rep. Milagros Magsaysay, another
    UNA senatorial candidate. 
    => Mitos Magsaysay MUST HAVE UNDERGONE A POLITICAL TRANSFORMATION! A few months ago she was BAD MOUTHING the Aquino administration pointing out that it could not do things right particularly when her PORK BARREL was withheld. Oh, well onecould EASILY BECOME a POLITICAL HYPOCRITE  just to get ELECTED as SENATOR!!! Allow me to PUKE before I choke with this kind of hypocrisy.

  • Handiong

    Let’s not kid ourselves. Binay, Erap, and JPE know that to directly oppose PNoy is political suicide. So they pretend to support PNoy in order to ride on his popular support. 

    If UNA is really a friend of PNoy and supports him, how come it is not in the LP coalition? The reason is that they have their own separate agenda but they don’t want the people to think that they are against PNoy. They want the people to believe that they are also treading the “Daang Matuwid”. But look at them, Binay, Erap, JPE, and MACEDA! (when Maceda was a Manila councilor, the late Mayor Arsenio Lacson said of him, “So young, so corrupt”), they are all so corrupt.

    If UNA is really for “Daang Matuwid”, how come UNA threw the rule of law out the window and rushed to the side of Gwen Garcia (of another corrupt political clan), one of its own? 

    In PRETENDING to be a friend of PNoy, UNA is just trying to hoodwink the Filipino people.

      • Handiong

        Be more discerning. Binay is the Vice President with a lot of idle time. PNoy is clever enough to keep him busy. As you know, idleness is the devil’s workshop. Anyway, part of Binay’s pretense is not rocking the boat, although when the interest of UNA is at stake, as in Gwen’s case, he can’t help but rattle the boat. But, have you seen Binay publicly support PNoy on controvertial issues? Where was Binay on the RH bill controversy with the CBCP, for instance? Some friends. 

        When PNoy said that he has no issues with Binay, it’s precisely because Binay is careful enough not to rock the boat, and PNoy is alerted to this.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

    I guess the LP is having a nightmare of their own. Opposition whose friendly with the president is far more better than being combative. I guess Binay can directly talk to PNoy since they have  common denominator: Cory. Lacierda and Drilon are trying to make a boundary between the Nognog and Noyniy but history is on their side. Strategies can win, Lacierda and Drilon has nothing to show for now. Chiz, Legarda and Poe will shift to UNA comes presidential election when PNoy becomes a real lame duck at the end of his term.

    Question on another newspaper survey “Who would you vote for President on 2016″ Results: Bong revilla=6% /43 votes, Binay=23% /177 votes and Mar Roxas 71% /548 votes.  The black binay mamba saw this results prompting him to issue the above statements.  Mar should not be complacent and should work hard to show Pilipinos that he is the true and rightful successor to PNoy’s advocacy of “straight Path”.  Success is within grasp so please don’t let go. Mar for President and Noynoy for VP 2016 if possible.

    To Bert who keeps on asking why Binay is still in Pnoy’s Cabinet:

    Be more discerning. Binay is the Vice President with a lot of idle time. PNoy is clever enough to keep him busy. As you know, idleness is the devil’s workshop. Anyway, part of Binay’s pretense is not rocking the boat, although when the interest of UNA is at stake, as in Gwen’s case, he can’t help but rattle the boat. But, have you seen Binay publicly support PNoy on controvertial issues? Where was Binay on the RH bill controversy with the CBCP, for instance? Some friends. 

    When PNoy said that he has no issues with Binay, it’s precisely because Binay is careful enough not to rock the boat, and PNoy is alerted to this.

    • xuaeenr

      • Handiong

        When I say “alerted”, I mean PNoy is watchful of Binay. As I’ve said, PNoy keeps Binay busy. After all, Binay is being paid by the people so he might as well do some work.

        Ever heard of the saying, “I keep my friends close, and my enemies closer”?

    Kung pag-uusapan ang impeachment, yung unexplained wealth ni SC Chief Justice Corona was a drop in the bucket compared sa mga nakurakot ni VP Binay until now, using the coffers of Makati City, through his son, JunJun Binay. Alam lahat ng taga Makati kung gaano garapal magnakaw ng pera si VP Jejomar Binay. Halos lahat ng building sa Makati ay may unit ang mga Binay dahil pag di pumayag ang mga developers, walang building permits. May hinalang kaya pinapatay yung dating City Engineer na si Morales ay marami na syang alam at baka bumaligtad. Kaya ayun, tepok para malinis.

  • Atagalong

    If VP Binay’s words are to be taken as true, then they must be thinking the same. Political dynasties forever! If you look clearly who are the leaders of UNA – Estrada, Enrile and the VP, what do you see? Estrada is a convicted plunderer but forgiven by then President of the Philippines, GMA. Now, GMA is in jail, but not convicted. Yet, former CJ Corona was impeached and convicted by the Senate because he was a midnight appointee of GMA. Enrile is the President of the Senate. Needless to say, he was the number 2 man of the Marcos Conjugal Dictatorship and the most feared person not only by Filipinos in the Philippines but also Filipinos living outside the Philippines, especially in America, where the author of the book, “Marcos Conjugal Dictatorship” disappeared. Salvaged? The VP is the heir apparent to the same old, same old, political dynasties of Luzon, mostly concentrated in Metro Manila. Those who are not from the same old, same old, are out of the picture. Roxas is from the Visayas. He is only seen as an instigator and not a potential presidential candidate. He is not of the same old, same old political dynasties of Luzon. Let local political dynasties everywhere live on forever as long as the control is by the North. Just look at the senatorial lineup of UNA and the Liberal Party and you will see what I am saying.

    To break this political stranglehold, I believe it’s time for voters to do do their part. Get rid of political dynasties!

Sadyang may kaakibat na misteryo ang pagyaman ni Binay… At ang hindi alam ng marami kaya pala nagkasundo ang tatlong trapo ay dahil sa paghahangad na mailuklok bilang mga senador ang kanilang mga anak.

      naku!! walang ipagmamalaki si binay. wala naman siya nagawa sa metro manila noong chief pa siya ng MMDA. kay BF lang nag-umpisang may pagbabago. ang taas pa ng pangarap……gusto maging prez.

    UNA: We are a TRUE FRIEND to Aquino…

    I agree.
    Today, UNA are a TRUE FRIEND to Aquino.
    Tomorrow, If Pnoy is not a President no More, UNA will be the TRUE ENEMY.
    Magtago ka na Pnoy, tatlong taon na lang ang Paghihiganti.

    • white scorpion

      hindi nila kasing kaya kalabanin si p-noy. ALAM NA ALAM ng intelligence community kung ano sila. baka mamiligro sila. 

  • Ramil Abalon

    kung true friend ang UNA bakit maingay si mitos at si tiangco at ikaw binaw parang wala kang paninindigan sa programa ni PNOY..parang kontra ka palagi parang wala kang bukal na suporta….

    parang similar sa sinasabi ng mga Binay sa taong bayan….”wala kami ninakaw”

  • Ganymede

    Anong true friend? Si Mitos Magsaysay nalang e.. for the past 2 years panay personal na batikos kay PNoy.. tapos ngayon isa na siya sa mga sinasabing “true friend”? Helllerrrr

  • jimi_c

    Vice President Binay has a good heart, commitment for the filipino people and hated what President Marcos was doing in our country, he was street parliamentarian during that time and hated the Marcos family and relatives elected as governmant officials.  Now, I am confused why he was doing it now what he hated most about political dynasty.

  • white scorpion

    naaasiwa akong basahin ang topic. ang masasabi ko lang kay binay ay huwag mo ipagmalaki ang nagawa mo sa makati. alam ng taga makati at mga nagpapagawa ng condo kung gaano ka ka-corrupt. ano naman nangyari nang ikaw ay naging administrator ng MMDA? wala akong natatandaan na may pinagbago  during those period. kay bayani fernando lang nag-umpisang may pagbabago. ang jurisdiction mo bilang mmda chief ay metro manila pa lang. paano na kung pilipinas na. huwag mo nang bolahin ang sarili mo. isa ka rin magpapabagsak sa pilipinas.

    sa panahon na bilang vise presidente ka, may mga pagkakataon na salungat ka sa presidente. lalung lalo na sa kaso ng cebu gobernador. bakit? dahil ba sa maraming botante ang cebu at kailangan mong MAGPAKITANG GILAS. tapos ngayon, tatakbo anak mo bilang senador sa party ni p-noy. pati na yun asawa ng liko-likong daan.

  • AllaMo

    E, bakit hindi ipagsigawan nitong rambotito ang hayagang kalaswaan nang pagpapayaman sa pwesto (mula sa bingit nang kahirapan). At, ang kalaswaan nang hayagang pagsuway sa saligang batas na nagbabawal sa nepotismo? UNA sa kalaswaan at sariling kapakanan.

  • MannyKingfisher

    Anong ginagawa nitong si Binay sa opening meeting session ng GOPAC. Ang pagkaalam ko ang orginization na ito ay “against corruption”. Pwede ba dito si Binay e  kapural ng corruption ang balugang ito. Walang wala ito noong kapanahunan ni Magnanakaw Marcos. Ni hindi mo malaman kung anong ikinabubuhay nito noong mga panahon ng martial law. Ngayon ay super yaman ang demonyo.

    Hoy ungas na Binay hinayhinay ang pagmamamgaling. Hindi ka ba naalinsanganan na dumalo sa meeting ng GOPAC e kalaban nila ang mga corrupt na kagaya mo. Kapal mo talaga.

    with friends like you, PNOY does not need enemies

  • boybakal

    Kidding aside, Binay is really a TRUE FRIEND to AQUINO.
    Since Marcos, Binay was already with Ninoy and Cory. He fought along side with them against Marcos and Martial law.
    Binay did not change color. He was not a Balimbing or in modern lingo…Sipsipbuto.
    He rallied against GMA remained and loyal to Cory.
    History will tell that Binay did not side with anyone and but remained faithful to Ninoy and Cory.

    It is indeed Binay is a TRUE FRIEND to AQUINO…Ninoy and Cory.
    I don’t know with Pnoy…let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.

  • ryan andres

    True friend… weaw…

    Bukod sa magkamukha (parang pinagbiyak ni inidoro ang mag inang nancy at jejemor binay), magkaugali rin pala itong dalawang ulikbang eto…

    “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”  Eh totoo naman na etong si pnoy hawak nya na buong congreso at korte suprema.  Panay pa yabang sa ekonomiya puro nmn mayayaman lang ang nakikinabang.  Kumpara sa other Southeast Asian Nations nasa kulelat pa rin tayo. Yun mga kinikita ng OFWs bumaba dahil sa pagtaas ng piso.  Sino nakikinabang mga negosyante.  Haay naku.  Elitist government kasi.  Tuta ng kano.  Kelangan balanced.  Executive sa LP, pagdating sa senado at congreso maraming oposisyon dapat.  Para may check and balance.

       tama ka ang nakikinabang lang dyan ung mga mayayaman tulad ng nagpapalit ng piso…

      Kung kinampihan ba ang corrupt, di na kayo “friend” ng gobyerno? Di ba si VILLAR tinawag dati ni Pnoy na KAWATAN? Di ba “friend” na sila ngayon? hehe

    The more effective way for UNA to prove that they are the opposition party is to tell the voting public how they plan to solve the country’s problems different with what Aquino and his party are doing. For example what does UNA plan to slow down population growth; to reduce poverty and the  wide gap between the rich and the poor; to lower unemployment so that Filipinos will not have to enslave themselves abroad in order to put food on the table for their families; to eliminate corruption in government.

    The Filipinos must stop listening  and believing the claims of these professional politicians that they have the best interests of the voters in mind. They are all deceiving us.The time has come for us to be wise and require those running for office to tell us what they have done for the good of the country and what capability they have to elevate our life. We had enough of the Estradas, Binays , Angaras, and probably Roxas and Drilon. In democracy, the people through election determines the government and leaders they get to have. Let us give true meaning to this philosophy by ensuring our vote goes only to those worth our trust and confidence.

  • zacky rendon

     With Binay’s involvement to Cebu’s Garcia’s political stance of not subjecting itself with the law and rather showing that they’re above the law, he lost his “charisma” of a “fair treatment” with those under the law…Pag-kaibigan ka pala or ka-partido exempted kana sa Batas..sa mga suspensions na iyan…Disin sana nag-advise si Binay kay Garcia na ilaban sa Korte ang reklamo niya at ibakante na muna ang pwesto niya…Nagmukha tuloy sakim si Garcia sa pamimilit niya sa sarili niya sa Kapitolyo kahit na may kinilala nang acting-governor…BiBilib pa sana ang mga tao sa kanya at kay Garcia bilang mga matinong tao pero dahil doon wala na silang kaibahan ng mga dating leaders na ayaw bumaba sa puwesto at naging sakim sa mata ng bayan…Sayang ang naging papel ni Binay at kasamahan niya noong pagbisita nila sa Cebu…Eh ngayon, anong nangyari, eh di bumaba pa rin kasi wala naman talagang magawa si Garcia doon sa opisina kung paglilingkod sa bayan ang talagang nasa puso niya…Dapat noong time na ibinigay ang utos ginawa na niya ang pag-ikot sa mga tao hidi iyong nakipag-bangayan pa siya sa Kapitolyo…Nasira pa tuloy ang respeto ng karamihan sa mga Cebuanos…Hopefully, ma-kuha niya uli ito at sana mag-ingat sa susunod na panahon…OPISINA LANG IYAN…Si Binay talaga..Huh..Nasira tuloy si Idol…Hindi na tuloy nakapag-sayaw sa Sinulog na inaabangan tulad ng dati…tsk, tsk…

    • santamaria_63

      Sakto ka Mr. Zack! Kung gusto ni Binay at ang kanyang mga kahalobilo na c Erap at c Enrile nang evidensya well, puede natin silang bigyan. Example: C.R that cost P673T each, birthing center P800T at Sr. Citizens Bldg., na P800T pa rin. Eh, ano kaya ang masasabi nila na may Comfort Rooms na P673 thousand? Gold ba ang iniduro or what? Pinakasakit sa amin as a Cebuano na may CICC na 1 billion at may Balili na P150M including the filling materials. ” that’s a waste of money ” I  would like to remind the Cebuanos if you vote the UNA candidates then in the same way, pareho lang sila ni Gwendolyn grabe ka corrupt.

    Binay (corruption scandal in makati), Enrile( mismanagement of funds in the senate), Estrada ( convicted of plunder by the Filipino people). Birds of the same feather flock together.
