04 Sep The Thing About Our Presidentiables
JUAN SAYS: We found Bruce Rivera’s post on facebook and we feel that he has a valid point. Who amongst you would agree with him?

The problem with many of our presidentiables is that most, if not all of them, think they have the chops to do the job. They have the wonderful solutions to solve all the country’s woes. They claim they are all clean. They want Filipinos to believe they understand their problems.
But the reality is: they are privileged sons and daughters of bitches. Some may have been poor at one point in their lives, but have been rich for a long time and forgot the taste of the poverty pie. And most of them have the audacity to make us believe that they understand the problems of the common man.
Huwag na kasi tayong magpakaplastic. Ako nga, 2007 ako last nagcommute kaya sa totoo lang, hindi ako masyado apektado kung masikip ang MRT. Kaya nga kailangan pa talaga sumakay ni Ate Grace ng MRT para ivalidate na masikip ito. And people made a big deal out of it. Maniniwala lang ako na maintindihan niya ang problema sa MRT kung tulad ng madami sa atin, nasubukan lang niyang nahipuan sa tren.
Si Kuya Mar, nagtatraffic sa gitna ng ulan. At amazed tayo kasi down to earth. Papogi po yan. Maniniwala lang akong nagtatraffic talaga siya kung baha sa Recto sa kalagitnaan ng baha at di siya makikilala ng tao para maexperience niya mamura ng driver at sigawan ng tao.
That is perhaps the reason that for a time, VP Binay was believable kasi sa kulay pa lang, relate na ang karaniwan. It is just sad that corruption charges are dragging him down.
Dapat kasi hindi sila plastic.
That is the reason why many people gravitate to Duterte as a viable candidate. Hindi siya plastic. What you see is what you get. Walang halong keme o drama. Aaminin niyang malibog siya kaya madame siyang babae. Aaminin niya na gaga ang anak niya kasi nanuntok ng sheriff. Aaminin niya na ayaw niya sa Manila kasi matraffic at masikip. Aaminin niya na mahirap ang problema ng bansa at baka hindi niya kaya. Aaminin niya na papatayin ka niya kung gago ka.
We do not need too much compassion in governance. In fact, we need some form of discipline kasi pasaway talaga ang mga Pinoy. Hindi naman tayo agad agad susunod sa batas kung walang halong takot. Kaya nga nag-aaral ang mga taga-San Beda sa law dahil sa takot lang nilang makick-out.
Our present crop of politicians has gotten it all wrong. And the present crop of citizens who like the status quo of Philippine society will elect the present crap to lead them. But to some of us who really want real change, real results, even revolutionary, is willing to risk voting for Duterte.
Matuwid nga na daan, eh puno naman ng ahas, buwaya at lubak-lubak pa ding daan na hindi natin alam kung saan pupunta, kailangan na talaga ng ibang diskarte.
Sadly, majority of the Filipinos do not see my point.
