We, the Filipino people, ask if not demand for change. Our fingers point almost always point to the elected powers in our country. The news media, especially television, cover incidents like the tourist bus hostage incident. They see, comment and record almost all that is happening. After all the fuss, they come up with one news choosing only one side to the story. In spite the fact that it was seen on TV, some analytical minds interpret what they see and that's not what comes out in the newspapers and news bulletins.
Is this the result of what they call "debriefing"? To guide witnesses and survivors to tell only what authorities want to be made known to the public? The cover-ups, the shielding or whatever they call it, has caused many tragedies to many people. They want to make something right out of what is wrong. Is that the correct way of debriefing?
Maybe the best thing to do is to retire all those in authority. Change them with people who have no relation or affinity to them. Put brand new people in government offices. Retire old government 'dependents' to their whims. Whatever the cost is, it will be easily recovered by well-meaning people in government.
By the way, there many non-blood related people who are Kiss-A**! They should be included in the list of not qualified for a government position and transact business with the government! Lastly, let us Filipinos do away with convenience at the expense of many. That's where corruption starts to no end.
To this, I say, "Mabuhay ang Tunay na Pilipino!" To the "fake" Pilipinos, start licking your wounds and a**es and get back 'on stream'. The next 'flash flood" might get you into the sewers!
