WE NEED A CLEAN CONGRESS

I love my titles.


There are some things to consider with the new Supreme Court decision on party-list seats in the House of Representatives. We can ignore for the meantime Chief Justice ‘Rey’ Puno’s propagandizing about his crusade versus ‘trapo’ policies in Supreme Court rulings (at least I think he wrote it. The article wasn’t too clear about it). We can also ignore the wisdom, or the lack of it, of former CJ ‘Art’ Panganiban in limiting party-list seats during his reign. We can also ignore that butcher ‘Vito’ Palparan is set to become a congressman.

SO MUCH FOR ‘MAMANG PULIS’

Seeing the cops’ boorish behavior in the whole newscaster’s wife shooting incident should not automatically lead to a judgment that all policemen, or even policemen in general, are power-tripping bullies. But one could begin wondering what system would allow the elimination or reduction of such incidents.

Imagine, just like in John Lennon’s song. Imagine competing security forces. Competing in a market sense, and not in a ‘300’ sense.
