ON TARGET

‘Mahiya ka naman, hija!’

I had a lump in my throat when I saw in the front page of this paper a picture of veterans saluting the flag during the 71st Araw ng Kagitingan commemoration rites on Mt. Samat in Pilar, Bataan.

The aging veterans are as old as my father if he were still alive today.

My old man fought in Bataan, survived the infamous Death March, became a prisoner of war (POW) in Capas, Tarlac, until he was released along with many other sick and dying Filipino POWs.

My father seldom talked about his life as a POW at the Capas concentration camp where his father, my grandfather Felix, died of malnutrition-related diseases.

But I once overheard him tell my mother that he and his fellow POWs would catch grasshoppers and eat them alive.

Perhaps by his silence he would not be able to relive the trauma in the hands of his Japanese captors.

He probably also didn’t want to recall the humiliation of defeat.

The Philippines is probably the only country in the world that celebrates defeat instead of victory.

I only now fully appreciate the bitter experiences my father and his fellow Bataan veterans went through after reading the book entitled “Escape from Davao” by John D. Lukacs.

The book is a tale of defeat, humiliation and suffering of American soldiers who fought in Bataan and Corregido who were transferred from one concentration camp to another: Capas, Cabanatuan and Davao, where they staged a daring escape.

No amount of rhetoric about the heroism of our World War II veterans would match the experience they went through.

The best appreciation the government can show these veterans is to give their surviving comrades more financial benefits and to never count the money.

Why does senatorial candidate Nancy Binay refuse a public debate with a rival, former Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros?

The reason given by the daughter of Vice President Jojo Binay in not accepting Hontiveros’ challenge to a debate is, “Let’s win the Senate race first, then we can debate on the Senate floor.”

Nancy Binay, who ranks No. 6 in the surveys, thinks debating with Hontiveros is useless since her challenger is doing poorly in the surveys at No. 18.

The nerve!

Binay, whose only qualification for the Senate is easy name recall, doesn’t want to debate with Hontiveros as this would expose her incompetence in public.

All the other candidates with famous family names, who are running for the Senate for the first time, have had experience as members of the Lower House: JV Ejercito Estrada, Sonny Angara, Jack Enrile, Cynthia Villar and Risa Hontiveros.

Nancy Binay has not held any government position, not even as barangay kagawad.

Mahiya ka naman, hija! (Where’s your shame, woman!)

      correct! same thing that Kris Aquino, and even his son Josh will win any position they run for! sabi nga ni Kris, isang iyak ko lang sa TV, maniniwala na sakin mga tao!

      • andresa igbac

        and what does that say of you, archerfan, that you are including here two persons (one a minor) who aren’t even mentioned in the article. you’re trying hard much!

        Nice one. You hit the nail right on the head.

    • Anak ng Naku Ewan

      Tama, konti lamang sa atin ang naka-kaintindi ng tunay na ‘issues’ that really affect our being a matured and wise voters. Our recent pasts of electoral excercise have shown our immaturity. Just take for example the following: we elected those useless senators who are movie personalities like Messrs. Revilla, Lapid and Kennedy (ehe este Sotto). Not content we also have tried to install as president Fernando Poe, Jr.had he not been alledgely cheated by Ms. Gloria Arroyo. To cap our immaturity we elected Joseph Estrada and despite being convicted of plunder he tried to give it another shot when he ran and placed second to Pres. Aquino from the last presidential elections. Not content, he is again gunning the top post of the City of Manila. When are we going to be wise and prudent voters?

      • gryzyxwoz

        Spot on! Now that is the real problem of this country. Immature, star-struck voters. We need to re-educate a vast majority of voters.

      • kevin

        Palagay ko kung kakandidato ka, kahit anong position, di ka makakasiguro na mananalo ka.

        Yabang mo! Bargas!

      • prince_janus

        What a comment of an idiot voter! Maaring manalo si Nancy Binay di dahil sa qualification nya kundi dahil sa apelyido nya. Mga bobotante gising na, huwag magpakalulong sa shabu!

      • disqus_WIkXYUshrh

        Isa ka sa nakikinabang sa racket ng mga Binays?

        hindi si tulfo ang pinag-uusapan dito, 12JEM: madalas, palpak ang mga argument ni Tulfo, pero dito sa “mahiya ka naman, hija” tumama rin ang pagka-tumbok nya… ikaw yata ang wala sa hulog?

      • turkak

        pinaka-worst ng ginawa ng pilipino naglagay ng sira-ulo sa Malakanyang. Nakakahiya sa buong mundo kaya hayan walang foreign investors na gustong mamuhunan sa bansa natin ! What else is new ?

        sabi ng sira ulong pangulo nung galing siya sa Davos Switzerland, 35 higanteng kumpanya ang nakikipag-usap sa kanya upang mamuhunan sa bansa ! baliw talaga di ba ? asan na sila. sabi din niya by 2013 rice sufficient daw ang bansa ayun nag-import na naman sa Vietnam. Panakip butas naman ang secretary of Agriculture for next year daw yung rice efficiency ng pilpinas. Hay naku ! dumami pa baliw sa gobyerno ngayon. hahahahahahah

    • walaeh

      isa ka na!!! tanga!!!!

    • Marx Louis Wang

      Iyan na nga ang problema. Yung hindi niya pagdebate kay Risa isa nang kahinaan. HUWAG IBOTO SI NANCY! WALANG ALAM SA DABATE! HUWAG MAGPAKATANGA!!!!

      • maypakialamtayo

        tama, kahinaan nga yon kasi mabubutata at mabubuko sya na walang alam, sa isang banda naman wise sya dahil kung papayag sya makidebate sisikat naman si riza at baka manalo pa, palagay ko hindi lang sya ang nagdesisyon na wag patuan si riza.

    • 12JEM

      Sinu-sino ang dapat na iboto sa pagka-Senador para hindi ma-consider na tanga ang isang botante? Di ba ang mga hindi tanga ang dapat na mag-guide?

      RIP PHILIPPINES.

  • randyaltarejos

    Mon, I agree with your insinuations. That’s her constitutional right. However, it would still be a welcome development if, at any point in time, Nancy will rise up to the challenge and exhaustively articulate her platforms before the public. Because it would only be waste of taxpayers’ money if she can’t be expected to sponsor bills and enact them into laws of the land.

    • gryzyxwoz

      We can avoid the hassle by simply not voting for her.

  • talbosngkamote

    wow if it was any other excuse for binay to decline… but seriously? just because shes doing “poor”? i have to agree with you sir… the nerve on this woman…

    • kapitkapatiran

      well if you do think about it she doesnt have much experience… you cant really call working for her dad enough experience to actually work in the senate… so yea huge disadvantage.. shes prolly just covering it up with confidence

    • Moany Noisy

      Dapat si Risa mahiya din bakit tahimik sya sa pagharang ni Pnoy sa FOI
      Bill. Dapat umangal din si Risa sa pananakot ni Kris kay James na “may 3
      taon pa ang kapatid ko”. Bakit tahimik si Risa sa kalokohang ginawa ni
      CJ Sereno. Ang motto kasi ni Pnoy “KAPAG KAALYADO, SIGURADO PROTEKTADO,
      KAHIT KURAKOT PA KAYO.” Ang talagang takot ay si Risa na umangal kay
      Pnoy sa mga ipinapaglaban nya. Buti nalang mababa sya sa survey.

      • maypakialamtayo

        itanong narin kay riza kung bakit ng sumadsad sa tubhataha reef ang uss guardian mainfay sya, ngayong chinese vessel ang nanira dun tahimik sya.

  • diamond_digger

    Nancy Binay may have held a government post, albeit clandestinely – as treasurer, accountant and budget officer for the people’s money her dad, mom and brother have stashed away from the government’s coffers to the family’s bank accounts. Her experience makes her qualified to take on the bigger role of counting the people’s money her dad may be able to rob from the people when he gets to malacanang (GOD forbids).

    • Marx Louis Wang

      Maski nga secretary ng student council sa high school WALA! Dinig ko muntik pa raw manalo as muse. Maski nga sargent-at-arms di nanalo. Kapag nasa entablado daw nakainum muna ng hinebra-gin, pampalakas ng loob.

    • gryzyxwoz

      All the more we should not vote for her.

  • kenzhinn

    the way i see it.. a debate is good for showing off what your all about. people get to see what your really made up off on the spot with out people telling you what to say or what to do… i can understand why she declined. risa has waaaaaaay more on her belt than binay…

    • gryzyxwoz

      Debates should be required by the Comelec. There should then be broadcast nationally :)

  • jejembe09

    from her fathers assistant to a senate seat? i mean…. come on…. its kind of disappointing knowing there are people out there who can get better things just because of connections… us normal people have to work for it.. and shes out there rubbing it in my face -_-

      • indiosbravos2002

        I think this argument is an old one already. Hindi na usapan kung si PNOY ay lousy congressman or senador. Ibig sabihin lang di sya legislative material.
        The fact that he is a performing chief executive now is all that matters. The country has been enjoying refreshed interests from investors and tourist means the country’s image is improving.

      • gryzyxwoz

        Some people will take any opportunity to inject their anti PNoy sentiments, kahit non-sequitur yung dating. I’ve seen it happen in the comments section of practically all issues mentioned here at the Inquirer and other newspapapers’ websites.. Whatever the issue… si PNoy ang may kasalanan. DUH!

May 7 syang anak at sa aking nabasa. Hirap syang paaralin ang mga anak nya at kung hindi sa GSIS scholarship di makakagraduate ang isa sa mga anak nya sa college.

      Ang akin lang dapat nga siusiportahan ni Reynaldo ang RH bill kasi sa kanyang pagpapabaya sa pag-anak ng madami kinailangan pa ng dole out ng gobyerno para lamang mapaaral ang anak nya sa kolehiyo. Hirap na nga gobyerno ang dami pang leeches na ang lakas umasa. Imbes na pagtrabahuhan atpabgatawanan ang madaming anak, saka pa iaasa sa gobyerno. Lekat.

    tulfing,we dont celebrate defeat on ”fall of bataan day”— but we remember the bravery of our soldiers.there is no shame in defeat if you did your best to win. afterall,defeat does not always means humiliation.
    probably you overheard your old man that he did not do his best during the war and hide away from enemies thats why he survived the fighting and the war.that is maybe the reason why you think bataan day is all about defeat and humiliation.

    • go88

      Tulko has japanese blood and I bet his corruption is ancestral … reading his column you should probably replace the word veteran by ‘makapili’ and ‘japanese captors’ by ‘american guards’ …

  • http://go4kangen.com/ Reynaldo

    ang dapat itanong ni Hontiveros kay Nancy ay kung saan galing ang kanilang kayamanan. isa lang ordinary man si Jojo Binay nang magumpisa sa politics. hindi naman siya isang Elizalde, Ayala or Lucio Tan. Saan galing ang kanyang yaman.

      Laki na nang naggastos noong matalo noon 2010 ngayong 2013 isa sa may pinakamataas na sa nagagastos pero parang wala siyang habas kung gumastos,

        do you enjoy the discrimination you get from locals there? do you sleep better at night knowing that most of the deadliest creatures in the world lives in AU?

        Anyway, enjoy your AU mate.

      • TT Knew

        Discrimination and bigotry are everywhere, just read some of the comments here. It will only prevail if you do not stand up against
        it.
        I am twice at risk of dying from dengue fever in the Philippines than being eaten by a croc here.

        What is not to like in here? I am an average person with an average income. In 5 years after migrating, I have now fully paid my car and my house and on my way acquiring my 2nd property. Been to USA twice and Europe and parts of Asia once on holiday. Not all that cosy though like what Andresa Igbac said in his/her comment. I have to
        work my butt off (more than 90 hours a week and endless overtime work) and give up my social life to have all these. Surely, I will NOT be able to have these if I was working in the Philippines. Like you I also favour my country of birth above any country but I need to realise my simple dream as well, that is to have a better life…….ooopps got to go, my ferry ride is here.

    Ang punto mon is tanga na ang Filipino ninanakawan pinapapatay pa , sasayawan Lang at bibigyan ng 100 pesos vote na nila.. Sa sinabi ni nancy na nasasaktan sya sa paninira sa kanya. Hindi paninira yun pananaw natin yun. Ito ang oras na ipakita nya na karapat Dapat syang maging senador. Ang simpleng barangay kapitan makikipag debate sa kapwa katonggali bakit ayaw nya? Dahil talagang walang alam. Ka kapalan na lamang ng mukha tulad ng AMA at ina ang mahalaga Manalo makapagnakaw tulad ng AMA. Dapat sa ating mga Filipino maghimagsik na Lang ulit patayin ang Lahat ng corrupt na opisyal ng mawala na silang Lahat .para my magandang kinabukasan ang ating mga anak.

    I don’t care what your motives are, but you have a very good observation, worth sharing to all Pinoys. The Filipino should start sending deserving people in the government, to avoid complaining after. I believe there are more unworthy candidates out there. People should vote for issues, for platform of government, and not on personalities. End political dynasties

Bakit tahimik si Risa sa kalokohang ginawa ni CJ Sereno. Ang motto kasi ni Pnoy “KAPAG KAALYADO, SIGURADO PROTEKTADO, KAHIT KURAKOT PA KAYO.” Ang talagang takot ay si Risa na umangal kay Pnoy sa mga ipinapaglaban nya. Buti nalang mababa sya sa survey.

  • Amador Amor

    Nancy Binay is now named Nancy Hudas. Based on some fierce critiques of some bloggers here, it appears that Ms. Binay is not really qualified and is the recipient of a name tinted with malice because of unexplained wealth. I totally agree that more than 80% of the voters are simply idiotics and have no real understanding of the candidates. What else is new in the Phil.? Too many dynasties, too many corrupt pols and stupid voters electing showbiz people who have no brain at all. The likes of Sotto, Revilla, Lapid, Estrada and others who are in govt. shows the stupidity of the voters. IT SUCKS!

    Peepol, a leader doesn’t have to be ultra intelligent and very experienced in order to be effective. He/she will have advisers and research staff and admin officers to put him/her on the right track. Didn’t you know that figureheads (emperors, sultans, kings, queens) have managed to accomplish a lot more for their respective countries than bureaucratic and technocratic leaders have for their own countries? That’s because a revered figurehead serves as a rallying and unifying force for the general populace. Kung ayaw nating bigyan ng chance ang inexperienced, well, we’ll forever be stuck with trapos, na akala ko sabi nyo ayaw nyo na nga.rin. Si FPJ noon, kung naging presidente, baka sakaling bumaba na finally ang crime rate ng bansa kasi respected siya pati ng multitudes of mga maton at criminal-minded na mga movie fans. Titino ang mga balikwaot. Let’s face it, even election decisions are emotional choices, not only in the Philippines but all over the world. Nancy, inexperienced as she is, like the late Tita Cory was, could produce something if she is loved by the majority. But she would only be effective to the extent that her advisers would be in touch with the needs of her constituents. .

    Rewind to 1986, Jojo Binay assumed OIC post of Makati. He (or should I say his family) have never relinquish the mayoral post since then. Before he took helm of Makati, Binay staunchly opposed Marcos dynasty and its abuses. He is said to be not earning that much being a human-rights lawyer before he became OIC.

    Fast forward to 2013. Jojo Binay has transformed Makati as his “little kingdom” and is now eyeing the presidency in 2016. Conveniently hiding behind Makati’s clamor for Binays’ continuous rule, he has fielded his wife, son, and daughter to the local elections, and now Nancy Binay to the senatorial race. He is said to now own various condo units in Makati and many times richer from his human rights lawyer days. He has made many political rivals (which previously were his allies) due to his insistence to continue ruling Makati.

    If he can cling to his post at Makati for almost 30 years, imagine to what he’ll do once he becomes president of the Philippines. Think of the riches he will amass not only for himself but for his children, grandchildren if handed the presidency. He is now moving-in to the national level, and that indeed is a scary proposition.

    PRESIDENT Aquino made a big to-do over the economy on Easter Sunday, comparing it to Jesus Christ who rose from the dead.

    The implication was clear. He inherited a moribund economy from his predecessor, President Gloria Arroyo, whom he has persecuted with a vengeance. Now, under his enlightened leadership, the Philippines can reclaim its rightful place in the world, and the diaspora that had driven 10 million Filipinos to seek employment abroad can finally be reversed, as more and more of them return to explore business opportunities back home.

    We have no desire to deny President Aquino his exercise in wishful thinking, but at some point, the rosy facade will start under the weight of reality.

    Earlier, the President expressed elation over the investment grade status that the Fitch Ratings agency conferred upon the Philippines.

    “It is one among many other positive developments that demonstrates the reclamation of our national pride,” the President said. “Truly, what was once known as the perennial laggard of Asia is taking off, and is accelerating towards its goal of an equitably progressive society.”

    But what the President’s self-congratulatory statement did not mention was what Fitch Ratings really said: “Improvements in fiscal management begun under President Arroyo have made general government debt dynamics more resilient to shocks.”

    The international ratings agency also gave full credit to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas for managing inflation, tipping its hat to the central bank governor who was appointed by President Arroyo back in 2005.

    Fitch never once credits President Aquino’s much-ballyhooed centerpiece anti-corruption campaign, and even warns that “a reversal of reform measures and deterioration in governance standards” could also reverse the country’s ratings.

    On Sunday, as the President was bragging about his economic achievements, businesses in Mindanao were complaining about the sharp decline in their sales amid rotating power outages of seven to eight hours a day.

    The power crisis in Mindanao was brought to Mr. Aquino’s attention a full year ago, and in that time, his administration has failed to find a solution that will not raise electricity costs in the region. Nor has it managed to explore renewable energy sources that will not damage the region’s environment.

    As the shortage threatens to worsen in the summer, the Energy Department’s answer is to lend up to P4 billion to electric cooperatives so that they can buy diesel-powered generators that can be set up quickly.

    Unfortunately, this same “solution” will drive power rates up by P1.80 to P2 per kilowatthour as diesel is an expensive fuel.

    Even worse, the imported generators will not arrive in time to address the worsening blackouts expected this summer.

    Certainly, not even the most rosy-eyed investor would plunk serious money into Mindanao, investment-grade status or no.

    I don’t always agree with Mon Tulfo but will have to nod my head on his comments about Nancy Binay. Paging all voters! Please use your pretty heads this elections. Why vote for Nancy Binay, for crying out loud!!!

  • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

    Mananalo yan si Binay kasi bobo ang karamihan ng mga pinoy.

    Hoy Binay, mamudmod ka ng pera. Mamili ka ng boto katulad ng tatay mong unggoy.

  • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

    Hoy Nancy Binay, tatay mo unggoy.

      Hate to disappoint you but after 2008, the economy being purposely destroyed by globalist banksters pushing for new world order, Marcos would have had no control over the devaluation of the dollar which is by design. The only reason everything is more expensive is not because the prices of oil went up, its because the value of the dollar WENT DOWN!!! Oil is still only $50 a barrel but since the dollar is now worth half of its former value, it appears that the oil price went up. But besides this, the plot to bankrupt every nation on the planet is part of the new world order. They want everyone starving and dependent on the govt. They have a real goal and thats to reduce the population of the planet. So bankruptcy is the starting stage. Sad times. No Filipino politician will be able to counteract these globalist bankers as they will be working for them or not in power at all.

    Its basically useless to vote. 46% of the 2012 U.S. voters did not vote out of apathy or no confidence. The left-right paradigm invented by the Illuminati 250 years ago makes it impossible to choose candidates of decency when both sides are controlled by one faction. A decent candidate would not join a rigged election. Besides, the people controlling this planet purposely put low I.Q. people in politics so that they can be easily controlled.

    The Philippines is controlled by foreigners, foreign bankers.

    Those that think they have a better plan, sana they are able to make a difference from the inside. But its not easy to do when you are surrounded by sharks. Too bad a majority of people are illiterate. We have too much of a task to over throw these bankers that call all the shots. But if we don’t do it, we will never be free or have decent politicians. The same happened in the U.S. with Ron Paul. He was winning the debates but was cheated out of his due. He was the only candidate that told things the way they really were, he had the imagination of the young voters but he was aced out, bullied in the press, talk show hosts Jay Leno and David Letterman took turns tearing Ron Paul down constantly night after night on their late night shows, until he was eliminated from the race. American voters were disappointed in the outcome as their real champion was compromised by big money and dirty tricks. On the other hand the candidates that won the primaries, had low turnouts at their own conventions, some hardly any turn out like Newt Gingrich’s.

    Things are ratcheting up to where we are in danger of losing our control over this planet. Humans are slowly being phased out. These bankers want to kill off 90% of the human population. This is called Agenda 21 which Fidel Ramos signed the Philippines on to in 1997 with PA21. The PA21 wording reads like a “green movement” with its mainstay byline “sustainable development” giving hope to all for prosperity but it is a lie initiated by the Rockefeller Foundation in cahoots with the United Nations and other organizations to get us to gather in megacities, to be controlled and exterminated through various means. Vaccines, food, water, pharmaceuticals, air, microwaves from cell phones and wifi. The same system they made scientists develop to give cancer to rats in 7 days. Using radiation and pollution.

    Its so obvious these days that its hard to deny. The naysayers will laugh and think they have a bead on the truth but they don’t.

    You say the Philippines celebrates defeat? Well its not just Filipinos that are in danger of being defeated, its the whole human race. Whatever Philippine politicians did, someone was pulling their strings so its not really fair to single them out as they only got in “power” because these foreign bankers allowed them to and could take them and their families out in a snap. Look what these bankers did to Gaddafi. He was providing public service to his people, even going against the bankers by developing his own money for his country based on the gold standard. This angered the globalist banksters and they took him out. Painted him to the mainstream crony media and the outside world as a “dictator” when Gaddafi was loved by his people. So you can see that lies are being told while these banksters are actually criminals controlling the planet through money and people too weak to stand up to them. JFK same for him, he actually had the U.S. mint make American currency that read at the top “United States Note” not the “Federal Reserve Note” that is owned and controlled by the foreign bankers and not the United States. What happened to JFK one day in Dallas? It is said the Kennedy half-dollar was a U.S. Mint memorial tribute to JFK to keep his memory and message alive.

    Even the US elections are not decided by popular votes. Its the Electoral College. But beyond that its really the foreign bankers who control the United States as well so the Philippines is in the same predicament, but lower on the totem pole because we don’t have a population who is armed and able to fight should a war break out. I’m not talking about the military as if a war breaks out this time, the enemy will be each other. Then the military will split and take sides, their countrymen or their owners.

    The foreign bankers own the U.S. military. The U.S. soldier is now being trained to shoot white civilians in U.S. cities, pregnant women, children, as millions of paper targets are being made to look like these, and positioned at these military training centers in the U.S. No more training models that look like areas and citizens of Iraq! It is now areas and citizens of the United States the U.S. soldier is being trained to kill. Why? Because these bankers know that the white American will go against these bankers who are trying to take away their lives. So the white American will be the targets, so will military veterans who are now undergoing psychological “testing” to disarm them as the bankers know the vet will be their worse enemy as the vet fights for America and their families. In the end no matter who fights who, it will be a meat grinder situation as no matter who fights for the new world order banksters, they will also be thrown in the grinder along with those fighting them.

    The weapons these bankers have are in robot and drone technology, bio weapons that are race specific, lasers carried in DC 30’s and with a few brainwashed remote drone controllers who will do what most humans will not and that is kill your own countrymen.

    Obama already signed the NDAA on December 31st 2011 to where he can kill any American citizen on the planet with no due process. He also wants to be able to use drones to do this but he’s getting some flack. Whether that is legitimate well-meaning opposition or just the typical one step forward two steps back ploy these globalist bankers use, we don’t know just yet. But controlling a drone or robot does not take as much effort as to motivate a million human soldiers who will have opinions and minds of their own. Like what was done with all the false flags getting Americans riled up for war, Pearl Harbor being a prime example. It was allowed to happen by the US Govt to get humans fighting mad. It worked. Not so anymore as we have grown wiser. Now they see the need for drones and robots who will not question an order.

    Its a fine line we will be faced to cross. So all you who are fighting over who should win these local elections should expand your minds to a more world-scale view. Anyone who is running will have to toe the foreign banker line should they win. So what would we have accomplished? All we would be getting would be the left or right of the same banana. Should someone win and not know the real owners of this country, they will be rudely informed or will be taken out. But chances are, those that are in or near to getting in a position or post, already know the score as to who is calling the shots as they would have been approached by these foreigners some where along the line. Yet knowing and realizing this is the first step to recovery.

    “Binay, whose only qualification for the Senate is easy name recall, doesn’t want to debate with Hontiveros as this would expose her incompetence in public.”

    That’s not even qualification. That’s what she’s grounding her entire bid to win a seat in Senate on.

    Kasalanan ng UNA coalition party members yan bakit napasama yan si Nancy. By popularity or appointment instead of by principle ang endorsement nila. Garbage talaga political system natin. Now, all of us will face the consequence of this.
