I am angry!!
Gloria the Midget has just pardoned Estrada.
My friend Danny texted me and even if I am thousands of miles in Sydney, it did not cushion the insult to my sensibilities, and my sense of justice.
The man STOLE billions, and we spent 6 years and MILLIONS to convict him and he gets off without serving a day in jail, or saying sorry or even returning the money. Where is justice there?
Ah but Gloria the Manipulative says she is doing it out of compassion for a 70 year old man whose mother is sick, and who has been in ‘jail’ in his lavish Tanay Mansion for years now. Kawawa naman daw. I call it ‘idiot cmpassion’ and I am being kind.
More accurately, what Gloria the Megalomaniac has done is to isolate herself and the political class from the rest of the Filipinos. THEY are different. THEY are the exceptions to ANY rule. THEY can and do lord it over anyone and everything including the whole nation. THEY can do whatever the f___ they want—- cash in on ZTE, give out illegal cash dole outs, cheat elections, kill their enemies– you name it.
Don’t be surprised if the Marcoses will probably follow suit and be cleared of all the crimes eventually. Besides, even if they are found guilty, the government will rush to pardon them anyway. That’s the way it is. So be it.
ERAP is pardoned. That’s the way the cards have been laid. If we are to live in a society where government is unable to deliver justice, I have suggestion.
If government can’t muster political will to enforce justice, then let’s accept it and make the whole disaster official.
But to be fair, let’s allow the same right given to Erap to every Filipino. That’s right. Let the Republic of the Philippines allow all Filipino citizens to enjoy the right to unlawfullness equally. If we can’t be equal in the eyes of the law, let’s bend the rules. Plainly, we should all be allowed at least one crime and a guaranteed pardon that we can ‘legally’ commit. Let’s make this official. Calling Mar Roxas, Villar, the Catholic Bishops and all who supported the pardon and are ‘happy for Erap”, give a litsen. This new idea could be your legislative coup d’ grace. It is the only way to save the joke we call ‘democracy’ and ‘rule of law’ since we refuse to do the right thing.
Here’s a list of crimes all Filipinos should be allowed to do even just once.
a) steal billions from the government (like the Marcoses, Erap Estrada and many others)
b) do not pay taxes and behest loans (like so many we know, JDV, et al)
c) subvert the government through coups, armed rebellion, etc. (like Honasan, Enrile, CPP-NPA, MILF, Trillanes and all who have done so and are still scott free)
d) murder (like what some congressmen and senators, and other public officials have done). But to be fair, government officials should not be exempt targets by regular citizens, since they do same to each other anyway.
If we can’t be strong and do what needs to be done to enforce justice, let’s at least be honest and say we are hopelessly weak, spineless and too morally challenged to see justice done all the way through. Throw away moral outrage. It’s too tiring. Besides, all that is alien to Gloria the Moral Cretin, and her ilk and does not move them one bit anyway. Let’s just all lobby for equal unlawfullness and enjoy the joy and benefits of moral decay and corruption.
