Let’s Analyse This, Shall We?

Strange Is Coming: The Cult Of Mayor

Campaign period. People want change. They all want a savior who will save our asses from the past wackjobs of the government. They started to choose which one to support and which one’s not. Supporters and bashers are everywhere on the internet. In the midst of it all, the cult of Mayor has risen. For them, he’s the one who deserves to have the power of the presidency, the power of chief of command. The Mayor said outrageous things in his campaign in which his followers think seems reasonable. Even killing. Online harassments and death threats were typical. A not-so-funny entertainment to be seen, though. A mob of people would tell you ” No, he doesn’t mean what he said, silly!” or ” You guys are taking his speech out of context” or “Get used to it, he always talks that way”.

Goosebumps.

Bad ideas should be criticized and shouldn’t be left unchallenged, and he’s got tons of these. A few sensible people have challenged it. However, the cult is too loud. These fanatics follow him so blindly that they even forget how to be a civilized human in a civilized society. Rational debates are nowhere to be found. It’s blasphemous to disagree with their “chosen one”, their “god”.  Don’t dare say anything negative about him, don’t you ever dare, unless you enjoy cyber bullying. That’s what you get from insulting someone’s messiah. You will taste the wrath of the cult. They get mad at you no matter how true your statement is, no matter how statistically and rationally you explain your side. Facts don’t matter to them if it contradicts their chosen one. Well, this is not merely an exaggeration. You can easily look it up. See the comments section of any articles, especially the one that criticizes their “messiah”.

The Chosen One. The first question spring to mind is, “Why he was even voted by 16 million Filipino people?” We can sum it all up  by saying he’s got voted in by gullible, ignorant and self-centered masses who want an “immediate change”. And what do you expect if you have such kind of voters? You bet. There’s nothing wrong with their “change”, we long to have them. The concern is how are you going to implement it.

Factors At Play:

Why we can hardly blame these people? Why are they  in outrage? 

(By simply looking at these factors, you will surely understand these people are sick and tired of incompetent leaders).

Failures Of The Past Admins

Erap, Gloria, Pnoy. These people had failed us.  Some might say that the next president will only operate out of self-interest as they always have. People are getting tired as they are all the same.

Erap Administration

Plunder CaseEstrada was accused of violating Republic Act No. 7080 for allegedly receiving P545-million protection money from jueteng operators; diverting P130-million tobacco excise tax share of Ilocos Sur; receiving P189.7-million kickback from Belle Corp. for GSIS, SSS purchase of P1.8-billion worth of shares of stocks and maintaining P3.23-billion “Jose Velarde” account with Equitable-PCIBank. cc : (GMANEWS)

Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

The Fertilizer Fund Scam — Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn Bolante allegedly diverted P728 million in fertilizer funds to the 2004 election campaign of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Hello Garci (I am sorry) Scandal — Refers to the alleged wiretapped conversations where vote rigging in the 2004 elections was discussed by, among others, a woman presumed to be President Arroyo and man presumed to be Comelec Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano.  (GMANETWORK.COM) Check this link for more cases filed against her.

As always, he denied that President Arroyo instructed him to cheat in the 2004 elections.

Would you believe that these two scammers are still holding a position in the government until now?! Yes, that’s correct, they still got voted in by idiots after being allegedly linked to these scandalous crimes for plundering people’s money. And what do you get by letting morons to vote your leaders? SAD. Filipinos will never learn their lessons.

Pnoy Administration

Pork Barrel Scam — The Priority Development Assistance Fund scam, also called the PDAF scam was the alleged misuse by several members of the Congress of the Philippines of their Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF, popularly called “pork barrel”).

MRT Scam — The anomalous used of MRT funds under DOTC secretary Abaya was allegedly corrupted and use for the Mar Roxas campaign, with, of course, the knowledge of the higher up.

Heart is ripping and face was almost numb by facepalming while saying “I’m getting tired.” They are all the same.

A Philosopher And a Clown

Today would have been Bill Hicks’ 50th birthday. So I feel like posting his apt message for humanity. Sadly, it is still relevant even today. 🙁

It’s Just A Ride by Bill Hicks

The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real, because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud. And it’s fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: ‘Is this real? Or is this just a ride?’ And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say ‘Hey! Don’t worry, don’t be afraid — ever — because… this is just a ride.’ And we kill those people.

‘Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.’ It’s just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that — ever notice that? — and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn’t matter, because… IT’S JUST A RIDE, and we can change it any time we want. It’s only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy bigger guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, into a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and, instead, spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would do many times over — not one human being excluded — and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever. In peace.

Philosophical Question Of The Day

Are social media sites (Facebook in particular) got something to do with your life event decisions? I mean, I guess, it’s included as one of contributing factors that might pressure you to do things, sometimes an important and life changing decisions – getting into a relationship, getting engaged, and getting married to name a few. My feeds on Facebook today, got me thinking about this philosophical question, well, a lot of ’em updated their status that they’ve got married today. Actually, my age is in marrying stage, so I think that explains it haha!

Feel social pressure based on the choices we make? I just wanted to say is that, maybe, just maybe we might want to think about it over and over before it’s too late.
