and i thought all along that ours is a brown frog.  actually i'm pure boholano-filipino, until somewhere along the way our bloodline was diluted.  now i'm often asked whether i'm chinese (pekingese), japanese (spitz), german (shepherd), or english (hound).  and now you've added irish (setter) to the mix!  truth be told, i'm just your good, old trustworthy pusakal, and proud to be one.  (good-looking too, take note.)


hahaha!  if only for this, i would watch a pacquiao game.  tiwason na lang kaha nato.  si tyson ang pakantahon.  di gyod makareklamo ang nhi kay makaon gyod ang ilang mga dunggan.

Point 1:  That’s why it’s “de facto vice-president” because the position does not exist on paper.  In function and decision-making, of course, it was Imelda.

Point 2:  And Lazaro is not biased by omitting the illegitimacy of Marcos’s continuing hold of power?  (As the Marcos’s lawyer, I wonder how much they’ve paid him.)

Point 3:  Yes (taking your supposition), again just for show, Virata would have called for a national election for president if People Power didn’t happen and Marcos’s plan pushed through.  You can be sure who will win.  Heard of the document Marcos had prepared all the way back in 1975 stipulating that Imelda succeeds him as president?  One of the documents the Marcoses left behind at the Palace when they fled in 1986 was an appointment for Imelda to succeed him.

Why do you think there is “hatred and they want his good deeds to be erased from the pages of history…?” when leaders with good deeds go down in history as heroes?  Why, indeed, when a real good national leader will always have the support of the many and could stand up to scrutiny without eliminating political enemies?

And here I quote some more:

"When the Marcoses left the Philippines, the country was burdened with $27 billion in external debt and was in a deep economic recession.  In 1988 Marcos was indicted by a US grand jury in New York on federal racketeering charges relating to his years in office.  Before he could stand trial, however, Marcos died in Honolulu in 1989."

 Here’s an analogy.  A person has been murdered.  The post-mortem shows that he has 27 stab wounds.  The murderer was never found.  It’s an unsolved murder case then.  Question:  Does it mean that no murder was committed because no one was charged of murder?

Glad you’re observant of my references and sources.  References validate one’s conclusions and analyses.  You yourself quote Lolong Lazaro (just him?) and conclude he is correct, without cross-referencing or cross-checking the facts.  Just the same, making claims of historical facts only through one’s personal perception is unreliable.
Marcos didn’t plunder?  Maybe the Westinghouse case was as it should be--- a technicality; he didn’t steal, he just got commissions (that ballooned the cost of the project as commissions are charged to the total project cost).  That falls under graft for a sitting official who approves the project.  (Please bother to read up on why it went to Westinghouse and what Marcos did.)

      For the benefit of Imee Marcos and for all those who may have inadvertently forgotten, the Bataan power plant is the Philippines' single biggest debt and still accounts for 5 percent of the total indebtedness of the entire country.

     Imee's father was accused of making $80 million in kickbacks on the plant, which cost three times the price of a comparable plant built by the same US company in South Korea at the time, according to the [UK newspaper], The Guardian.

     According to the respected British publication, the Bataan plant is often cited as one of the most blatant examples of a debt that should not be repaid. "First, it was a grand scheme of the late dictator that never benefited the people, and is thus an 'odious debt' under international law. Second, the children of the Philippines are being asked to pay for bribes to Marcos and excess profits of the contractor. Third, the company should take the responsibility for building a nuclear power station just 60 miles from the sprawling capital Manila, near several earthquake fault lines and at the foot of a dormant volcano," it said.

                  -Jojo Robles, Manila Standard Today, August 26, 2005

Look, I quote from newspapers too.  Cross-referencing/cross-checking of facts and figures shouldn’t be limited to books.

And I think too that yours is a rehash of Marcos admirers.  (p.s. Realpolitik is spelled as one word.)  But sure, that’s why we’re having this discussion because you believe in it while I don’t.  “Perspective” of authors is not based on imagination.  Authors of non-fiction books do real research that’s why these books have references at the end.

Thanks for reminding me of the Guinness Book of World Records.  It’s truly advisable to have some bases for one’s decisions, you know.  We can’t just trust our imaginations or wishful hopes. ;) 

aw, wa jud ko ka-get ana nga dajeg diay ang gikinahanglan.  abi nakog pahungaw lang ni sa ijang kahiubos.  :'(

« on: March 16, 2010, 08:28:54 PM »

hello, bnc.  sa ako pong nabasa, tinuod, pero dili tanan.  example na ang cambodia.  ug pinas opkors.  naa poy lain-laing klase nga martial law.  military junta nga klaro sa cambodia, pareha sa chile sa una.  sa ato, civilian dictatorship supported by the military.  nagpaka-aron-ingnon ang atoa kay di na man gustong manaog si lolo makoy.  diha na man sa pagkasakit niya nga nag-andam siyag kasulatan nga i-turnover niya kang imelda ang poder. 

para nako, morag lisod pag-conclude nga martial law ang nakapalambo atong mga malamboon nga nasod nga nakaagig martial law.  the same reasoning can be used for the opposite--- nanglambo pod ang mga nasod nga wa makaagig martial law, ug mas daghan pa ni sila.

truly real dark.  mora nag nasilihan akong mata sa kahadlok palandungon.  ambot, anus-a pa kaha tawon ta makakat-on.  lahi na man unta ang generation karon, naa na man untay mga bag-ong botante.  maybe there is still hope?  i mean, banat, noynoy, banat! 

sukad karon, mahadlok na gyod ko mokanta sa atong bayang magiliw.  natural ang akong pagkayabag.  ikiha ba pod ko tungod kay di mao akong tono? 

ang star-spangled banner sa u.s. gigamit sa unang panahon sa rock opera nga 'hair'.  if i remember right, naay mga lines sa u.s. national anthem nga gigamit sa kanta.  maajo kay wa makiha ang composer, lyricist, ug singers ato. 

wa man pod tingaliy nikiha ni wonder woman nga u.s. flag man intawon ang iyang costume nga morag bathing suit.  pasuwaya si darna ug gamit ug bathing suit nga ang design philippine flag, tingalig ma-calaboose siya sa ato. 

while the nhi must carry out its duties, there's got to be some limit on how far it could go in the matter of implementation.  the spirit of the law as against the letter of the law, matod pa.  di sapajan nga morag inquisition. 

kanyahay ra usahay tawgon hinoon na sila ug national hysterical institute.
